The New Color Room Pallette #8..plus other stuff

Hi! Well it is Friday and I thought I would post the Color Room's New Pallette.  This week we are in the family room.  What luscious colors!  I always love how they also post a sketch with this...so if you are really at a loss...you have it all! 

Also don't forget about the instructional class tonight for a gorgeous wedding album from :

There should be a link to where you can watch this on her ustream later today! She is having to do this album in 3 parts.  I am thinking this week's color pallette would make a beautiful wedding album!

Everyone have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!

Photos! Photos! Photos!

If I wasn't so embarassed I would post a pic of all the photos I am trying to get organized.  When I moved my room I didn't move all the photos....and now have pulled them from my old space so I can make some sense of them!  Oh my...the dining room table is covered and piled high! Now my dining room table looks like something that has came out of the house of a hoarder, but they are precious pictures of all my loved ones and our lives.  I am overwhelmed looking at it. 

When I began scrapbooking I thought Oh How Neat...my photos will be in albums with the journaling and creativity!  Little did I know at the time how many more photos this would cause me to take...because you will want to capture that moment for generations to come!   Don't get me wrong I am so happy to have all of these wonderful little treasures.  Just overwhelmed at the moment as to how to make some sense out of them all so that until I get them into those beautiful scrapbooks we can still enjoy them and look at them.

So if I am not here posting creations...it is because I am up to my neck in photos!  Wish me luck!  I want to be able to pull them off the shelf...look at them and remember the good times.  I don't want to have to dig through boxes to enjoy them...nor do I want my family to have to do that either!  I am going to be putting them into the WeRMemory Keepers Albums....well at least alot of them....I will let you know how this goes as I get them done.  But after looking at all that I have I wonder how many albums I will need!  LOL!

Hugs!

and remember to smile....you never know who will be coming around the corner to snap 10 shots in a row to try and get that one perfect shot....and then  have most of them developed!

Tuesday Tidbit (on Wednesday)

For those of you that know me know I am in love with Tim Holtz...well his products that is!  I look at his creations and drool...wondering how can I incorporate that to my page!  I keep saying that I am going  to try some of his techniques in the near future. I missed getting my Tuesday Tidbit up in time for Tueday...but when I found this I thought why not post it on Wednesday. He has a blog giveaway this week!  So excited! Now to get into my room and attempt to create something distressed.  He actually has "how do you distress everyday this week on his blog.  So I hope you enjoy!

Sunday's Inspiration - An Encouraging Word

Today I slept in.  I didn't make it to church. I was really getting upset with myself for not setting my alarm, and missing out on the blessing and teachings that God may have wanted to show me.  So I sat down with my Holy Bible, and in prayer asked God to teach me something today.  And you know God will always teach us if we just have an open heart and listen.

He took me to the passage of Hebrews 10:23-25

Here God hit home with me again everything that I had been feeling.  These verses talk about how we are to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, how we are to remain in fellowship with our church so that we can encourage others.  It isn't about what blessing will I recieve but it is about what blessing will I give! 

In the devotional that I read along with these verses it said that "You can either be a stepping stone or a stumbling block as a Christian.  It's your choice".  This is what the writer of Hebrews was saying: we can be that stepping stone that spurs one another on.  When we choose to encourage others we not only benefit the person we are encouraging, but we will experience the joy as well.  So as we go through our days we need to take action when we think about others.....

........maybe all they need is a phone call, a card, even an email to brighten their day.

Choose to be a stepping stone for someone today!

Paper Bag Album

Here is the project I mentioned a few days back that I was working on.  I have had fun with this.  This little album will be given away as a baby shower gift!  I am so grateful for internet friends that walk you through and teach you how to do things, that I wouldn't otherwise learn.  Thanks Sondra!  Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

Tuesdays Tidbit: Stop Using Pampers Dry Max!

Hey to all of the parents and grandparents out there!  I saw this posted on one of my favorite sites and since I didn't know what "Tidbit" to share when I saw this I thought...we all need to know this!!

Apparently there is an investigation into the pampers dry max and rashes.

Just another Sunday!

I was hoping that I could make Sunday's a day of inspiration for my followers.  But I seem to have lost all inspiration this week.  Of course since it is actually Monday Morning....I guess all is good!  (laugh here!)  It seems like this last week has flown by!  They say time flies when you are having fun...so I must have had alot of fun this week...because time sure did fly by. 

I began a new creative project this week.  Trying something new and need to have it done by this coming weekend for a gift.  Hope that it turns out gift worthy.  I will post pics later.  Thanks to my friend in Ohio that has helped me in pulling this together and all of her patience with silly questions.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!  May not be back here again for a day or two...as I get to go shopping!  (well and I do need to finish the above mentioned gift!)

Hugs!

May Card Sketch from the Crop Room II


Hey anyone up for a card?  Here is a sketch that I recieved from the Crop Room II.  This was our May sketch and I just loved this one!  So I hope everyone has fun with it!  I am so new at cardmaking! In fact the girls over at the Crop Room II have said that they have pulled me to "the dark side" now that I am card making!

Tuesday Tidbit

Hello to everyone!  Wow what a week I had last week and this week looks like it will be just as busy!  Now that I have drawn the winner....who I am still waiting to hear from....I can now post new things for you.  I had alot of fun with my Crop Room II ladies over the NSD weekend and they extended things into the week. This I think was one of the most fun things I did: (Sorry for the photo quality).
This Layout was just fun. Lainie told us to just lay two sheets of paper down on top of a piece of cardstock...and then lay a 4x6 photo size over the larger piece of paper.  Add other embellishments where ever you want around this grouping....then use paint or glimmer mist, making a halo effect around your blocks.  I chose to use glimmer mist in sandy beach and copper.  I also dug out some cut outs that I had left over from my cricut and just layed them on top.  I just sprayed away.  When I lifted the pieces to glue them back down...I loved the mask effect.  The picture of tree I had intended to cover up with a photo...but when I lifted my mock photo paper and saw this...I knew it was just meant to be.  I am looking for a quote or scripture to add to the upper block.  When I did this Layout it brought out something in me that hadn't been there in a long time and that is to just PLAY!

So when you create today...remember to Play, and let go of any rules that you may have created in your minds.  Try this...the results are pleasantly surprising!

Hugs!
