Sisters Lo and just some venting

OMG! why is it that whenever you wanna scrap, life gets in the way? I FINALLY sat down to get a few pages done last night when lo and behold my NEW Kodak printer broke AARRGGGG!!!! why Lord why?? This was after a two day marathon of house cleaning that just couldn't be ignored any longer...I was sorta turning a blind eye cuz as fast as I could clean, Rob was just makin' more mess with his renos...gyproc dust gets in the damndest places! I know...shut up least my darling hubby does renovations...yah but I still gattoa clean up behind him. Any hooo.... I had intended to do this cute little mini book about our day at the Insectarium to visit the butterfly pavilion and then to a friend's for a swim... I was gonna call it Butterflies and Bathing Beauties...but between the printer dying and my Cricut not doing what I wanted.. I just gave up on the whole idea [for now]...somehow I ended up doing a LO on me and my two sissies...which had been in the back of my mind for a while anyways... I was pretty pleased with it. Funny how a day can end so differently than where you were aiming for! Oh well...
PS Does any body else spend way too much time looking at everyone else's work instead of just scrapping? I find I'm doing that ALOT lately...

Black and white

I really love black and white patterns...they're so crisp and clean. I got a pretty good stash of B/W patterned papers yet for some reason I never seem to use them!!! Truth be told I got a BIG stash of patterned paper that will probably never be used...oh well , what can I say's an addiction. Think there's a meeting for paper addicts anywhere? " Hello, my name is Michelle and I'm a paper whore [ or would that be hoarder?]" anyhoooo...thought I'd finally get around to trying an all white and black LO and the pic of Chelsea's hands on her piano keys seemed the perfect pic to use. I'm pleased with it... I showed you mine, now you show me yours!

a little about me

Hi thought I'd get into this blogging stuff but here I am! and believe it or not I'm SEVERELY techno challenged. Just wanted to start this blog so I could share scrapbooking stuff. I'm a total addict who NEEDS to do something scrapbook related everyday. Some days it might just be cruising others work for a new idea/inspiration but always something. This is a card I recently made using leftovers from my July Scrapbook Sussies kit...cute eh?
I'm sooooo excited cuz I recently got notification that a LO of mine will be published in the Winter 2009 edition of Canadian Scrapbooker! my first publish ! WOOHOO!
