i've just been so tired all day.
but i did get a few little things done.
putting away laundry.
straightening the living room.
help my baby boo with her homework.
just tired.

this pregnancy is real different than the 1st.
but i'm so looking forward to it.
despite the kweeziness.

i'll be taking pix every month of my progress.

a b-ballin reveal

hey everyone!
it's friday and you know what that means, don't you?
it's the ScrapTiffany reveal for this week's challenge.
this week's theme:  "hybrid" combining traditonal with digital.

i am more of a traditional, paper and glue gal. 
i'm a hands-on type of gal, love the feel of gooey glue, dissecting paper and putting it together.
so this was a lil bit of a challenge for me.
so i opened my friendly Word document, found a digi art and typed up a title.

instead of a page layout, this time i did a card.
here's my take for the challenge:

and all the ballin dittiez:
(supplies:  American Crafts, Microsoft Word, EK Success)

go check it out along with my fellow DT galz:  ScrapTiffany Hybrid Challenge

and since we are in a b-ballin move, here's a few shots of a couple of supastarz:

it's all about the game, the shoes, the fun.

have a wonderful friday!

Big Bear Lake Trip + Finally....

yesterday we decided to take a nice road trip to Big Bear Lake and let me say the almost 3-hr drive was way worth it.

we first had a very late lunch at Peppercorn Grille.  i had the spinach ricotta ravioli and my hubby and daughter had burgers.

and then we did some sight-seeing...

the ride back home was even better than getting there....the mountains were oh soooo bootiful...

and finally she is coming back home tonite....yey-yah!

can i say yey-yah again?

groove is in the heart...

part 2 of this week's challenge for ScrapTiffany is up.

this week's theme:  naked chipboard.

and here's my take:

and for the groovy close-ups:
(supplies:  Sassafras, October Afternoon, Pink Paislee, Creative Imaginations, daisy d's, Jenni Bowlin, Maya Road, Tim Holtz, Fontwerks, EK Success, Glimmer Mist Tattered Angels, Wausau, AMM kit, Cricut die-cuts, Making Memories, American Crafts)

used a cardboard from my AMM kit packaging and used it as my base.
i used a negative from a tim holtz chipboard template, spray inked it and it became by background.
took some olive vine glimmer mist and splattered it all over the cardboard.
my title and journaling is from a song that my hubby actually came out on the dance floor on our wedding night and it's one of his favez.
that was one of the funnest nitez of our livez.
and the guests said so too!

go check out the ScrapTiffany DT's take on this week's challenge and hopefully you'll play along!

have a fun fun friday!
