I've been tagged!!

Carole Beath from Paper Arts tagged me...so here are the rules: Answer the questions, then tag 5 or 6 of your friends. Go to their blogs and tell them they've been tagged and ask them to visit your blog for details. Here are my questions and answers:

Ten years ago: I was enjoying the summer before my junior year in high school. I decided to go to summer school for the first time ever, not because I needed to go, but because all my friends were doing it and we were all taking the same classes. So...why stay home when we could be having fun in school?

Five things to do today: Finish writing 2 reports for work that I have been putting off all night. Transfer the load of clothes from the washer to the dryer. Get things ready for tomorrow's lunch....(yes, I pack my lunch everyday, it guarantees that I eat healthier!) Read a couple more pages from the novel on my nightstand. Wait up for my hubby to get back from picking up a friend at the airport.

Snacks: Anything chocolate. I actually went to an early dinner with my hubby tonight and had the most delicious chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Yummy!

If I were (to become) a millionaire: I would pay off my house, my parents', and my in-laws' houses. Since I have a big family, I would give some money to everyone in order to help them with something. I would travel the world because that is my favorite thing to do. Definitely invest money ( I would have to talk to a professional about that because I wouldn't even know where to start!). And of course, take my friends on a small shopping spree!!

Places I have lived: Miami, Florida...born and raised!

Alright, I have shared a little bit of myself..now it's time for TeriBeri, Sonia, Regina, Krista, and Michele to share with us!

Happy Birthday

Well as you can see my girlfriend was celebrating her birthday and we just had a splendid time!! We went out to a lounge in our dowtown district and had a last. Our challenge this week over at BBTB was to use the banner cut from Celebrations....and I knew exactly what I was going to use it for because I had been wanting to scrap those pictures since March! Be sure to go check out all the other creations our wonderful design team came up with!

Materials used:
PP: Basic Grey
Banner flags, tab, scalloped square, gifts, balloons: Celebrations
Title: All Mixed Up
Embroidery floss, stickles, ribbon, buttons: My Stash!

A popsicle a day keeps the doctor away!

Someone on our design team has been a little under the weather so I made her this card to try to cheer her up a bit and maybe feel a little better ;o)! The challenge at the BBTB was to use the popsicle cut from DC. This cut was so much fun!! I used real popsicle sticks, Offray ribbon, buttons, stickles, and some stitching. Make sure to go and check out all the other AWESOME projects the girls did over here!


Mommy to be..

I just finished the card for Kazan's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You! My best friend is pregnant and her baby shower is in a couple of weeks so I figured I'd get her card done early since I will be making something crafty for her shower that will take me some time! (I will post that to show you once it's displayed!) I used the K & Co. mat stack for the PP, Offray ribbon, Marcela K pearls, flowers from my stash, and some buttons from Michael's. The typed sentiment is from the computer and I used liquid pearl and some stitching to spazz it up a bit.

Card Sketches

Laura & Kazan have teamed up to create a new sketch blog 2 Sketches 4 You! They will each be posting a card sketch every week...and from what I hear there will also be fun challenges and prizes! This first card is from Laura's sketch. I used Daisy D paper, offray ribbon, WIMG for the flowers and Stampin' Up rubber stamp sentiment. I put some Swarovski rhinestones on the sentiment, liquid glassed the edges of the flower base, distressed the edges of the card and did some sewing. Enjoy!

you make me so hoppy

Hello all! I have to say that I just LOVE how this LO turned out. I found this awesome paper stack at M's from S.E.I. and had to get it! And since my hubby and I were going to a wedding this past weekend...I decided to take some nice black and white pictures to make a LO of us. Our challenge this week over on the BBTB was to use the grasshopper from SYI. To get the scallops on the side I used the scallop edge on PS on the "Fit to Page" feature. I covered the cut with a green zigzag ribbon from American Crafts and put a bow on the top with some heart pins from J's. I used PS for the "you make" and cut the rectangle with edge scissors. The "me" is from a pack of Lil' Davis chipboard letter, "so" is from MM and the cute little grasshopper is from SYI. I made the flower myself using the bug and put an SEI brad in the center.
