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...

Ribbon Challenge, Sketch & V-Day Box....

Today was a really good day...I got 2 layouts and a cute little Valentine Box done. The first layout I did was for a Ribbon Challenge. I just love all the colors in this layout its so fun. I am gonna use the page in my scrapbook of the Cali trip.The next layout I worked on was a sketch from Becky...she made a few sketches and posted them on her blog . So, I wanted to try them out. I picked one and I loved how it came out...I did it to match another page to make a 2 page lo! (sorry about the glare).

THEN FINALLY...I was sitting here with nothing to do and surfing around the web and checking my email. This last week I got an email from I just love all the wonderful ideas those girls have. And I seen something on the email that just inspired me and I had to do it RIGHT NOW! So I got all the supplies out and got to working. I had a few coasters from Chili's and wanted to use them and finally did. Here is the link on how to make the coaster gift box . It is really easy you gotta try it. This is the one I made.

Scrapped till we almost dropped!

Last night/early this morning was so much fun! I met this girl Valerie from LifeJournal and we had been chit chatting on Yahoo for a couple weeks and we planned to get together and scrap. Monique got here around 6ish and Valerie showed up at around 7pm and we all started altering comp books. Then after we were done with that we all started our own projects. Monique left around 10pm. Valerie and I kept scrapping. I worked on my Cali trip and Valerie worked on a tag book for her Mom. I got 10 pages done and she got 25? tags done. We had a blast and finished scrapping at 4:30am haha! We were thinking to do this once a month at least but are already planning to do it in 2 weeks haha! I hope so it was LOTS of fun!

here are all the layouts in one bunch that I did
