Thank you so much, Dana. I love it all. I can't wait to use my goodies:)

I used American Craft Play papers, a varitey of numbers "3"s; Heidi Swapp, Chatterbox, Marcella by Kay stickers. The title and hearts were cut out with my Cricut. I used my Autumn Leaves flourish stamps and did some free hand writing:) I used a Prima embossed bird die cut and some paisley die cuts someone on sb.com sent me a LONG time ago. I doodled a little "design" on them.
Here's the shirt that inspired it all:

This LO was inspired by a LO done by a member of sb.com (zeebootee). I just LOVE it:)
Here's what else I worked on that night. A couple of LOs using the Creative Imaginations Skull and Xbones and the Caution Girl collections. The girl one is a lift from the site. Can't remember the name to give credit to though:(
I also got a LO done yesterday that I had sitting on my desk for a while. Still trying to catch up on those Christmas pics:)
More goodies in the mail today. Those Lil' Davis scalloped tags that Janey used for her tag book. I HAD to have them. Also got some Plain Jane scalloped shapes. I am all about the scalloped right now:)
We had some terrible rain today so hubby got to take the day off. This is the first Monday we have had to ourselves since he went to work with his brother. It was nice. Just like old times:) We went by Big Lots and found the cutest little "purse" album. It has those slide in sleeves for pics, but I am going to use it to put my altered deck of cards in when I get started:)
Just wanted to share one last pic. My sis sent me this today during IM. A pic of my Mookey Monkey. I "spoke" to him today on the computer mic. He is getting so big and I love to hear him "talk". I LOVE my Mooks:)
OK...I lied...this is the last pic. It's a pic of us scrapbooking at 911 this past Saturday. I just have to say I LOVE that place. Everyone there is so nice and it just feels like home. I went into another local SB place today, just to see what they had available and I found nothing. It just didn't compare. 911 is just the best place to go.
K...that is it for tonight. I'm headed to bed.

I used Lil' Davis Strawberry Glitter Glaze, Heidi Swapp chipboard flower and heart. The flower was yellow, so I sanded it and painted it pink with some MM paint. The chipboard letters are Paper Studio and I embellished the "L" with some adhesive gems. Also used a Bazzill blossom, gem brad, XO brads, Jo Ann's acrylic piece, Doodlebug rubon stitches and some ribbons.
The pic is of hubby and I at Fiesta Texas this past weekend.

I had been searching for these Primas for quite some time. Someone sent me some for a trade on sb.com once and I fell in LOVE with them. Also got two of the Chatterbox Doodle Genies. Sb.com seemed to forever be out of stock of these. And when they came in, they flew out the door. These things were going fast. So I was able to get them here. I can't wait to try them out:)
Monday, Steve and I had our Wishblade class at 911. I just gotta say, Mike really got me psyched about using my machine. I hadn't been able to do much with it since I got it for my birthday last year. I think I have used it more in the last couple of days than I have in all in the time I've owned it. It is just awesome!!!
I picked up another pack of the bra/panty Primas while I was there; in blue:) And got the Lil' Davis Strawberry glaze. Also got some of the new MME Signature Life papers. I just love them:)
We are cropping at 911 on Saturday, so I spent a good deal of time today getting my LOs together. I live for crop night:)

Someone on our private scrap site mentioned using these Lil' Davis glitter glazes to cover chipboard so I had to go and pick some up to try out. I had been wanting something to use on chipboard shapes and alphas and such to get that "glittery" effect and all I have to say is, "I am in LOVE with these". They are amazing. I am working on an embellishment for our MM challenge and I used it on a couple of chipboard flowers. They look AMAZING!!! So I just gotta say a quick "thanks" to Laura (scrapnfor3) from our site for posting about these:)
Here's a pic of the chipboard flower. It isn't quite done. I want to add something to the center and maybe something else.
And I had no idea that Signature had new lines. I loved all the new papers, but I think I'm gonna wait a bit on these. I really need to start working with some of the things I have, but I did pick up a couple of the really cute journaling tags.
Ooo, also picked up a couple of mini Primas. I thought I had picked up some black ones the last time, but was mistaken:(

My second post of the day:) I did a little shopping this evening once again. I had been cooped up in the house for the last three days with this rain and all. We finally got out for a while when hubby got home from work. I found some cute things at Target and on clearance for 50% off. What more could you ask for??? :)
I picked up the smaller paper pads in hopes of doing some smaller projects like some mini albums and such. I am currently working on a little something for my sis cause she kept buggin' me to "make her something":) So I am, Lal:) And in working on this today, I realized that I don't have a whole lot of pics of me and my sis together. I guess since we are always the ones behind the camera, we just don't get too many pics with us in them. I think we definately need to plan our own little photo shoot next time we get together;)
Another find for today...CHOCOLATE bubble gum!!! This stuff is delcious. I found it while waiting in the checkout line at Target. Yuuuuummmmy:)
I was inspried by these idea cards I picked up at 911 the other night. They were for the new Daisy D's lines; Beacon Hill and Chasing Butterflies. I sooooo wanted to get some of that paper and it took all my will power not to. I still have so much of the Heirloom, Gypsy Harvest and French Market that I need to use. And these papers worked great in place of the new ones.
We've been having alot of rain here lately, so we haven't been doing much. Not much of a Spring Break for the kids. Hopefully it will clear up this weekend so we can go and get our Fiesta Texas passes and take the kids out for the day. They have really been looking forward to going since last week.

Also went to Walmart to do our grocery shopping and picked me up a little something. How great is it to find sb goodies at the same place you can buy food:)Oh, stopped in at the Dollar Tree too to look for these little "purses" my sis had picked up last week. She altered one for me and it came out sooo beautiful. I just had go and look for some to try to alter myself. I remember her saying that the ones she found weren't very attractive and were perfect to alter and cover, but the ones I found today I thought were pretty darn cute to begin with:

I also picked up some of these really cool embossed "die cuts" ...also by Prima and these really cute tiny packs of Prima flowers. I got a couple other packs of Primas and a few sheets of the new Basic Grey Perhaps line that I didn't have yet:)
We went out to dinner and then I hit the Hobby Lobby out by there. I picked up a few things I'd had my eye on as well:)
I am loving these DCWV Pocket Full of Posies glitter flowers. I think I need to pick up another pack next time I am there. I wasn't too impressed with the Once Upon A Time pack. Not all the die cuts are glittery like the Posies. I definately need to pick up the Posies pack pack next time Hobby Lobby has their paper on sale.
I can't wait to try out all my new goodies. The kids will be home all week for Spring Break so I should get some good scrapping time while they entertain each other. Hopefully, I'll get to go over to my sis' house for a little cropping:)
