Have you ever?

No, we are not playing a game! Have you ever started creating something that from the very beginning starts out wrong, yet you keep working with it because you can make it work? Well, that is what has happened to me! I started a card last night, and from the very beginning cut it wrong! But thought, no just go with it so that I did. Well, after putting paper on the card, trying to figure  out a “theme” I have come to this point:


Yep it is in the TRASH!! Why, you ask? Because I am fed up with trying to make it work! I have decided to trash it and start over! Hopefully the second time around will start out better!

I have never really considered myself a card maker, but lately I have been making alot of cards. It seems that for every layout I complete I want to make a card. Like now, I am going to finish this post, and start on a card, when I should be going to bed. Oh well! Who needs sleep when you have a four year old to keep you awake! And I am certain that this ice cold glass of dr pepper isn’t going to help me sleep!

I have been working on clearing a few things off my scrap board the past few nights. Last night I made a bday card for a cousin. I used the hello kitty shape cartridge. I had a very hard time accepting how much space there is when layering stuff. I cut my layers out a quarter of an inch bigger. I am sure that is the way it is supposed to be, but I don't like it!

Tonight, I checked off cleaning out my scrap box. Although all I did was organize my scraps. You would never believe how much pink paper I have. Well you would if you knew me! I have enough pink scraps to last the rest of the year. I did good though got all the solids organized and put away. For the patterned paper I just stuck all that inside one section. Figured it was too much,. Ok, well I am going to work on my card now, or maybe just go to bed. Not sure yet! Happy Scrapping!

Still under construction

I am still trying to get a few things added to my blog. As some of you may or may not have noticed the Cards link at the top does not work. I am still working on that! I am hoping it will work soon!

This past weekend, I got together with my scrap pals and we scraped, talked, laughed, ate pretty much everything we normally do! I had a blast as always!! I was able to work on my design team challenge, this is the second one for this weeks challenge. I made a bday card but sent it out with out taking a picture so I made another card for a special little boy who is growing up too fast! After I finshed it I realized I shouldn’t have inked the edges and should have embossed the orange. Oh well it’s still cute!

Recipe holder, Note pad holder

I don’t know!! I altered this clipboard today for the Whimsical bugs challenge. I made it to match my kitchen, but not sure what I will use it for.
