Oh Happiness!

All I can say is Berry Sorbet !!

Cardstock, Patterned Paper, Ribbon, Ink... awesome!

Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeny!

LOVE this set... a little intimitating at first cause it is so small but before I took them off the sheet, I rubbed my noir palette ink pad over them and let them dry! Much better and at that point I could see the detail of this alphabet! GORGEOUS and cheap... check it out.... Here!

Clip It Up... Cheap!

I love the Clip It Up system, the round version. I think I work better when I can see everything... so the cheap in me created this version... lol! Total price... under $10! The self was already there, but even still they are like $4 anyways. It was just some eye hooks, a wooden dowel, some S hooks ( an entire bag of like 40 was $1 at Walmart), and small bull dog clips (I already had but are fairly cheap). So next time I sit down to do a layout I remember I have all this stuff! LOL

DT Dare!

I lurk on this A Scrappin Friendsy all the time and they have this contest going on... it might just be for design team members but as soon as I read it, I knew I need to send in my layout! It is a contest for the most pics on one Layout! I did this layout a little while back but I found when I scrapbook to record an event I tended to use a ton of pics! I do less of that kind of scrapbooking now but i scrapped the crap out of my son's 1st year! :)
The contest is... DT Dares 3/16 - 3/22
23 Pictures! WOW

Rak it Up!

My very first RAK and it is super cute and just my style! It is from Holly we are part of the PTI RAK group! Thanks Holly and keep your eyes peeled!

I've Been Tagged!

I have been tagged by Kelly Jo, she has a great site and you can visit it by clicking on her name! I have to say I am totally flattered and I am a total tag virgin so don't judge... lol. I should have saved that for one of the 7 things...

1. I am an organizing FREAK! I love it, it makes me happy and I am sure it will be the death of me someday!
2. I don't know why I started my crafty blog, I get the sweats everytime I post stuff!
3. I was never going to have children... now my (almost) 3 yr son consumes my every thought!
4. I hate driving... I can't look at all the curb appeal. I am nosy!
5. I would love to go to New York, even just for a weekend!
6. I am a reality TV junkie, I can't look away!
7. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up!

That was tough... now your turn, I thought I wold tag a couple of the awesome ladies from the Papertrey forums!

Here are the rules...
• Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.• Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, we all want to know them.• Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.• Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Have fun!
