This is too FUNNY

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I have spent the last several hours peeking at some great blogs, I found this funny youtube video on one. I thought it was quite funny, like it says someone had way too much time on their hands. Close to my Heart has given us a sneek peak at the lastes incentive trip NEW ZEALAND, can you believe that. They never cease to amaze me. Iam making a new goal to EARN THAT TRIP. Tomorrow I will create beautiful things, tonight sleep!

So here are two pictures of my trip anywhere in the world , If you read my quirks and unknown facts two post below I chose Antigua in the British West Indies. The first is the view we had while eating breakfast each morning ( absolutely gorgeous ) it takes seeing a place like this to appreciate and be thankful for what God created. The second picture is of the sunset on the beach also breathtaking!

Bella #2

This is cosmobella, I had this retro paper and it was perfect. Iam not a purple girl but the color was perfect for this card.

Just checking in

Hello and Happy Easter to everyone!!!

I went shopping with my Aunt today or should I say yesterday. It was a beautiful day, I hope everyone had a chance to get out and enjoy it. The two of us went to some antique shops and other specialty stores like Casa Bella and Cinnamon Rose ( dont the names make you want to shop there), lunch at Tommies ( chili burgers YUM ) Marshalls (they now have a FAB shoe department) and coffee from Starbucks in there parking lot while we laughed and talked. I am very close to my Aunts, there like my best friends. Anywhoo she spent $200 and I spent $26. I purchased a new trash can. Fun, fun day.

Scrappernic wanted to know where I chose to go on my trip anywhere in the world. Well I had several exotic far away places picked, 1. Italy ( shopping of course ) and 2. Greece. But my sweet hubby is very particular and was anxious about being in places to foreign, he would not have enjoyed himself at all. So I chose Antigua in the British west Indies. Its a beautiful tropical Island. I don't regret my choice, 7 days in Antigua at a beaches resort, no cell phones, no internet and believe it or not the cable didn't work for the whole 7 days either was the BEST.

Iam waiting for the washer to stop and off to bed I go. Check back tomorrow for pics of cards and Antigua.

Excuse my spelling booboos, no spellcheck

Ive been tagged!!!

By Leslie of Leslies creative
I love the blog games, too fun!! So here goes

1. I am clausterphobic and terrified of large bodies of water. Love to go to the beach BUT you will never catch me in the water. I was determined to go snorkeling when we vactaioned in Antigua, I was scared to death and made my husband hold my hand the whole 10 min. Thats how long I lasted in that beautiful, warm blue water.

2. When I was pregnant I loved the smell of wet cement on a warm or hot day, I imagine it being a popsicle and want to lick it ( gross I know). Loved the smell of fresh cut grass and wanted to chew it like gum (I know, I know) .

3. I have always wanted to write childrens books

4. I am really happy when theres a Law & Order marathon on TNT.

5. My favorite time of morning is between 8-9 am, but I hate mornings

6. When I was 5 I saw Jaws the movie and was afraid to take a bath, I also watched SNL soon after and saw Jaws come out of the drain and eat the lady taking a bubble bath and then not only was I afraid to take a bath but I wouldnt sit down in the bath.

7. I once won a trip anywhere in the world

1ST Bella card

Click the wild pictire to enlarge.

This is so me in every way, the outfit, the cute handbag ( love a cute handbag ), the hair ( I have worn that wild cute wavy look and of course the shopping bag!!!! OH yeah the colors are so me. I have almost every color ( minus the blue ) in my house. I LOVE THE COLOR ORANGE!!!

Bella Fever

So I have caught the fever, the Bella Fever that is. These stamps are so darn cute and reasonable. There a so many you have to narrow it down and prioritize to complete a order or you will quickly drop a $100. So this is my package from Canada. Check out the website its in my sidebar of favorites!!

This is what I deceided

There were absolutely no specials for my camera in the sales adds. I am going to get the bundle from Sams club, it includes the canon bag, memory card, the CAMERA and two lenses. Thats what I deceided, so now I wait for it to ship. Who knew a camera could be so hard to shop for.

I cant wait to show you what I have been working on, I received a bag full of BELLA stamps. This is my first order from Canada and they are so DARN cute!! I have some fabulous paper picked out and the colors are HOT!! I have to make two sets of 21 cards for a swap.

Tomorrow is the last day of work( its friday, my post was saved back on the 1th not to confuse anybody ) because next week is SPRING BREAK.... can you hear me and my kiddos jumping and shouting. I plan on getting some major scrapping and stamping done.

Sunday is my 16th wedding anniversary, its so great being married to your best friend. I think we will go out for brunch in Santa Monica at Spagatinis. Its a jazz restaurant with live jazz. I think brunch and a walk on the pier will be nice!!

PS I had my dog shaved and he is so darn cute, cant wait to post the pictures of him as well.

Keep checking back I will have lots to share.

Iam back

My old camera is kinda working, look at what its doing, kinda cool HUH !!! This is my card for Nanci's standing sotm swap. Click the image to enlarge.

Hello, Iam so excited I had some comments from my CTMH sistahs!! So cool! Thanks ladies. Well I have been camera shopping as you all know. Before hitting up the stores I searched out ebay express but wasnt quite sure about the honesty and timelyness of delivery. I posted a few questions on ctmh boards and two peas and I think I am going to pass. The deals were phenomenal, the bundles offered TONS of extras and the price of GREAT. But I heard of some switch and bait with some companies and the company that I would have bought from likes to pursuade the buyer from using paypal. Thats a huge red flag for me because we all know that paypal offers a way to get your money back in case of funny business. Office depot had a great price online, I really want to walk out of the store with my camera. SO I cant wait for tomorrows ads to see what they hold as far as deals. If there are none I think I will just go for it and buy the camera without the sale. Stayed tuned..
PS... I have been tagged, this blogging is so fun. This will be my first real blog game!
