During the holiday season do you sometimes hit that creative block? Do you need that perfect gift or card for someone? Well we can help!
Join sassycardsnscraps.com for a 6 week contest to help inspire you to complete those Christmas projects.
Starting November 1, 2008 we will be posting a project a week that you will have to complete by Friday of that week for judging. (each of your enteries must be upload in our gallery and then linked back to the thread.) The best part of the contest is NO ONE is voted out. Each week our panel of judges will vote on the top three projects for that week and they will receive points according to where they placed. The person at the end of the 6 weeks with the most points will be the winner!

I just love this little altered paint can I did. This is a prima flowers bucket that I added some sand, shells, and a sticker on the front of it. This is a picture of my friend's daughter and I gave it to her as a gift.

Ok so I have had these great pictures of dh for a while and have been wanting to scrap them, but not just scrap them in the usual way. So yesterday I sat down and spent 4 hours working on this. I paper pieced the guitar dude and the book with the screen. I am happy with the way it turned out.

You Are Cinderella!
Dignified and hard working. With a gentle and soft-spoken manner you have something many people don't. Patience. Even through the moments of heartbreak you're still able to hold onto all of your hopes and dreams. Bide your time; your dream will come true.
Which Disney Princess Are You?
My creative energy was coming back but it just isn't. I don't know why it has gone. I did manage to complete a few challenges for the SNC Stalker monthly contest.

I suck at this blogging thing but I have a great excuse. We finally got my dd graduated from high school. I can't tell you all the planning, buying, organizing, buying, decorating, buying, celebrating, and buying some more. But it was a wonderful time for all of us. Now in just 4 weeks she will be leaving for the Army. So in the mean time to keep my mind off it I am full speed ahead with the job hunting and trying to do some scrapbooking.
This is a layout I managed to do today. This is for one of the challenges at Scrapncircle.com for the monthly stalker program. If you haven't checked out the monthly challenges you should. jeri has been able giving away some AWESOME prizes.

Memorial Day weekend, so much to do this weekend. But as we take a step back from our lives on Monday to remember all of those who have passed it makes you think of so much. As I will watch my dd do her last color guard for ROTC my thoughts will be to her. Her new adventure she will be embarking on in the Army and how we are so proud of her. Please take time this memorial weekend to think about all the young men and women who have chosen to protect our freedoms and that they will all come home soon.

Boy it has been a while since I have last posted. So much going on here in the McDonald house. Well we took Alyssa last weekend and she got her graduation dress. Boy has time flied. I can't believe she will be leaving in July. That brings me to another point, Alyssa is now living with us. It has been a big change for all of us but dh and I love every minute of it. So scrappin wise I have been busy working on graduation presents and graduation cards. You always think you have so much time to complete things but you really don't. So wish me luck I am going to lock myself in my scraproom.

This stop was in Rio. We were to use bright colors, scrap an event, and use lots of bling. This is the cake from my daughter's 16th birthday. The topper on her cake was on my 16th birthday cake and her grandma's 16th birthday cake. It is a family tradition and now they are put away for when her child turns 16. TFL

This week they wanted to see white space, a handmade embellishment and you could use color but it all had to be the same color so I chose pink. My handmade embellishment is the flower. This is a picture I took of alyssa just 2 weeks ago. She and her friend were outside goofing off so I decided to get out my camera. I love how the wind is blowing her hair away from her face. TFL

I love spring it is like a new beginning. This is one time of year I missed the most about living in the city. The colors of spring and the new baby birds are all out. Even last night we pulled weeds in our yard. Can't do that in the city. I know this time is going to pass too quickly and we will be in the 110 degree weather but for now I am just going to try to enjoy it.

Ok this weekend I made a layout that I am really excited about. I did all the doodling by myself and I love how it turned out since I really don't like to doodle. And all my favorite layouts have lots of flowers and this one is no different. I am just really happy overall. Thanks for letting me share.

Can you believe it is the end of January already? Where did the month go? It seems like it was just Christmas. There is so much going on right now with starting the new business and helping dd with her military ball. We are a month away from that and there is still so much to do. We have however started the centerpieces. We made these great candle holders out of wine glasses and vellum. I am very pleased on how they turn out. Now only 1,000 more things to do, PLUS get a dress, and hair, and nails, and and and........LOL

Ok so yesterday I got out my new cricut expression and the software and decided that I would try to figure it out. Well I had a so much fun and I made these great scrapbook quotes for the walls in my scraproom. I just love how they turned out and I can change them at anytime with no major damage to the wall. Now the next question is what do I cut next???
