I can't beleive that it has been almost 3 months since I blogged! How time flies! I know that April was a little busy for me but what are my excuses for March and May haha! Well I hope that I can start keeping up a little bit more on here. Don't know if many people read...but, I like to keep up and read later on in life what was going on back in the days. I am going to try to remember whats gone on and try to catch up in the next few days.
On March 21st I cut ONE FOOT of my hair off! I had been wanting to do this for a while now but kept backing out. Finally I got it done and I was so happy to get it done. I just LOVE it! I donated it to locks of love . Here is a few pics of my new hair-do.

April was an awesome and very busy month for me. April 11th was my 30th Birthday. I can't beleive I am 30 YEARS OLD! it's so crazy. I had an awesome day. Anthony took off and we went out and had lunch with some of the girls I used to work with. It was awesome! I just love to get together with old friends...I miss them all so much.

After meeting with the girls for lunch. Anthony and I met my Mom and Dad up in Albuquerque and went out shopping. At around 5-6 we met my Uncle Joseph and Grandma at Applebee's to finish off the day.

The weekend after Anthony and I met with MaryJane, Jamie and Trish at Mac Grill. Jamie wasnt able to met us the weekend before for lunch with the other girls so we just planned dinner the next Sat. We didnt take any pics with I so regreat not talking any. But we had fun and talked and laughed!

After that I went home with MaryJane. I spent the night and we made cards probably till about 11pm then headed on to bed. On Sunday we got up and made more cards and got ready to head to the monthly Stampin Up party.

Today was a sluggish kind of day. I did walk the treadmill for 20 minutes which makes me happy. Thats TWO days in a roll! woo hoo! I didn't get any scrapping done so I will do 4 layouts tomorrow! I HAVE TO!

I made these two picture quotes tonight. I used photoshop to add the words and got the pictures just by goggling images. I think they are so pretty!

Today was a GREAT day!!!

It did start off a little bad because I woke up from a very bad nightmare but as the day went on it got really good. I got ALOT done which makes me happy. I am going to continue to try to get alot done like this everyday. I did dishes, got a load of laundry done, cleaned up the house a little, walked the threadmill for 20 mins (today was my first day since my back had been hurting me a few weeks ago), took a shower and even scrapped two layouts from the Cali trip. My goal up untill the Vegas trip in 66 days is to walk the threadmill every day from Mon-Fri. and do at least 2 layouts a day to get the Cali trip all finished up.
I used two sketches from . She has some awesome sketches check them out! I promise you will love them! Here are the two layouts I did. The pics were takin from our San Fran trip back in Sept.

I got 2 8x8 layouts done for Pink Cat Studio, one card done for PCS and 3 other cards with mine and MaryJane's new stamp sets from Stampin Up! I just totally LOVE my new skunk set! I can't wait to stamp a pink skunk hehe! I didn't scan one of the cards I made because I sent it with MaryJane to give to MaryAnn, a lady I used to work with that made me the CUTEST it was a thank you card to her. Here are the others I made.

Valentine Day Craze

Since Sunday I have been scrapping & stamping my little heart out! I have made 25 Valentine cards, 15 Birthday cards for a swap that I joined on Sunday with Valerie's (not me a friend) Stampin Up Demonstrator and altered 8 candy bar wrappers. The reason why I've been working so hard on the Valentine Day stuff is because my cousin's wife sells flowers, balloons etc. during the Valentine holiday and she asked if I would like to sell some of my cards and stuff. So I thought I'd give it a try and since I only have a few days to get ready for this I have been real busy. I figured It would be a great way to get some extra cash for the Vegas trip in April which is 2 months, 2 day and 6 days (thanks Becky for your ticker hehe) away from today. I am so excited for that day to come its going to be so much fun!

Here are the cards that I have made for the sale and swap. I made 6 of each card for Valentines. I still have 7 more candy wrappers to do and I really want to get some 3x3 cards done as well...but we will see how things go tomorrow. I have to get ready to go to El Paso with my cousins and go SHOPPING WOO HOO! we are staying there for the night then coming back Sat. So we will see how much I get done tomorrow.

Why I Scrapbook...(blog challenge)

The reasons why I scrapbook is mainly for myself. I always think um who will look at my work after I pass on??? I don't have kids. I do have a younger brother so I guess it would mainly be for him if he would even want them haha! For the ones that know me they know that I do not work and can't work because of my disability. I am really glad I have grown to love scrapbooking. It makes me feel so good when I can be an inspiration for others. I love the feeling after finishing a page and saying WOW! Scrapbooking makes your pictures look so awesome and so much fun to look at over and over again. Its so much fun to learn all the new things that come with this hobby. It never seems to get boring because there are always so many new things coming out each and everyday. I wouldn't know what I would be doing with my life today if I didn't have this fun hobby to keep me busy with.

Valentine Cards

I finally felt just ok to stamp today. I was having MAJOR withdrawals. For the past 2 days I have been on bed rest because of the pains in my lower spine. I have been having these pains off and on for about 9 months or so. In June or July I had an MRI because I was having so much pain and really bad pressure headaches. I thought maybe it was the shunt they put inside of me about 6 years ago due to the blood clot in my brain. The shunt is hooked on the lower end of my spine into my tummy. SO anyways...the pains have been really bad the past 2 days and I have been leaving messages for the neurologist and finally he called me back yesterday and said that the MRI was not normal and something was wrong. (I really wish they would have taken care of this then but now is the time). His nurse called me today with a resurgent apt. THANK GOD I have an apt tomorrow at 9am. I can't wait to get there to finally get results on what this pain could be. When the neurologist called he said it could be a pinched nerve or something going on with a root that is causing the pain.

Anyways...I got these cards done today and altered a candy wrapper!

The cards here are made with the new Paisley stamps from Pink Cat and other stamp sets used from Pink Cat Studio.

Candy Bar...

other cards..

I bought these really cute Bratz Valentine kids cards and used them on a few cards I made they were so cute I couldn't resist...
