A few things for today!!!

Happy Wednesday!

Well "The day" is here!
This is the layout that is featured in the Canadian Scrapbooker - Winter edition 2008!
Today from 6 to 9 at The Scrapbox if you wish to have your copy signed it's the time to visit the store! I know Jenn got a large shipment in for this wonderful event! Thanks in advance for joining the fun!

A new class is available for December at the Scrapbox! Thursday Dec 11 from 6 to 9pm! "Santa's Helper" is a 2 Page LO that fuses two very stylish paper lines: Rusty Pickle's "Christmas" and SEI's "Alpine Frost"! This would be a perfect class to take to display you or your love ones in Red Velvety Splendor! Call the store at 613-745-2215 to reserve your spot!

And finally.... I just wanted to announce that I have caved..... yes.... I did... and decided to join the "cult" of the Cuttlebug lovers! Mine is not named yet.... I need to find the perfect name for it (as per the tradition at the Scrapbox!) I made these 4 wonderful cards and used the most yummiest products on them! From the Distress Stickles, Crackle Paint and Ditress Inks (all by Tim Holtz) to the Stardust and Gel Pens... the amazing embossed papers (folders used: Swiss Dots, Bird and Swirls, Snow Dots and Snowflakes) are just shinning their best! I also used the Fancy Pants Blissful Season stamp on each cards... what the perfect combo! The cards will be featured at the store! My favorite one "Holiday Magic" love the gel pen on part of the raised surface of the green cardstock.... Love Love Love!!! You can probably not notice but on the pearl paper for the red cards all the raised surface is enhance with the Stardust pen.... really lovely and glittery!

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Ya.Ya book!

2 weekends ago we had a get-together at Tanya's new home and we started this little Make and Take with Mellisa, Rachel and Tanya's supplies! Katie all ready had hers completed last week!!!!

I prepped all the mini accordion albums and then we made them on the spot. We had to completed the decorations at home with our supplies.... therefore making them all different!

I gave mine less an Asian look than Katie's... I went through all my supplies and played with things that I was dying to use!

I completed mine during the w-end and here's my version of our mini albums!

Saturday, Stephane surprised me in coming home earlier and we went at Laurie's "surprise" party we by mistake... told her during the all night crop at the Scrapbox! We had lots of fun and can't wait to see the pics that D took! Also wanted to wish you... Laurie all my best wishes on your Birthday today * insert HUGS and kisses here! *

New ATC's and Remember.... Today 11-11-08

They are so addictive!!! I guess it's the same thing.... like making cards... but this is so fun to trade afterwards!

Sunday I made a batch of 12 for the Fabric Swap "Take 2" and had extra papers all ready cut and decided to make a separate batch of 6 called "Seeds of Friendship"... love the hydrangea paper flower! And the 6 black and silver ones "Sparkle Touch" were also completed last week. From this batch of 12 I have mailed one for Catherine, I owed 6 to my swap girls at the Scrapbox (Janet, Anne, Elizabeth, Debbie and Monica) because I was in love with a few extra ones that the girls brought at the last swap and I am also just giving 2 xtra ones... to Jenn and Tammy (they were my "enablers" to start making ATC's!)

A special note to.... Rachel, to all the soldiers around the worlds and to family and friends of those who lost love ones, I am sending positive thoughts today towards all of you and also thanking you for what you are doing for our Country and all of us. A big thanks from the bottom of my *heart*.

It will take place on th emessage board - every day - from November 15th to the 23rd! A total of 22 free classes! ENJOY... ho ho ho....!


W-end recep + Fabric Swap "Take 2"!

A great w-end! Friday night I had a full class for the first Fa la la Album! We had lots of fun and the girls really created all a beautiful album! Saturday was cleaning time at home... on going until it's done! I think I need a full week off of all my duties to make it happen! Then I prep my contribution to our ya.ya "Asian" theme diner at Tanya's! We had lots of fun and I prepped with Mell's supplies a wonderful mini accordion album for the girls! Now we need to all finish it at home and share it once completed! We went to bed a tad late.... but with all the lovely Candy Apple Martini's... we had a great short night of sleep!

Yesterday I prepared my Fabric Swap "Take 2"(unfortunately our first package that left went missing) and I decided to send a new batch with ATC's matching! Stephane arrived from hunting and didn't get anything but is leaving again Wednesday with the boys and will only return next Sunday.

Here are my ATC's and Fabric Swap "take 2"!

Hugs and have a great week!

I'm a "Zia".... in means "Aunt" in Italian!!!!

I came back from a day of running around to a great voicemail form my mom announcing me that my sister Karoline had her little baby boy "Sebastiano" today at noon (Italy time)! He weights 7.05 lbs, no clue how tall he is. From the time the water broke, they rush to the hospital (the past week... she was going back and fort to the hospital every to day to evaluate the "liquids", they were really low...) and the delivery took 20 minutes.

I am so happy that all went well and that I was able to talk to her on Friday morning, sending her good vibes since then, so all went well.

We will miss them from here, but sending them lots of LOVE!
Need to send the care package ASAP Monday morning!

My mom's 60th b-day is tomorrow only a few hours appart! Bonne Fête maman, je t'aime.

Good night, I'm off to bed!
