Goodbye!! (for now)

I am just stopping by to say goodbye to everyone for the weekend! I am going to wonderful Texas for the weekend to visit my future in-laws. I've been SO busy all day today. I've been running all over the place trying to get everything done! My mom and I are leaving at 7:30ish in the morning to drive down there. We are stopping by the Oklahoma City bombing site, and making some other small stops. Then on Saturday it's a day full of wedding stuff in San Antonio. I am so excited about that! then on Sunday we have to wake up early and rush back to Houston to meet Matt's daddy in Galveston for a fun day at the beach :) Then Monday I am trying on dresses, and then we are coming back on Tuesday! I got my new video camera last night (2 days early! woohoo) so I will put together a short video of my vacation. As I promised, I HAD about 30 minutes of gypsy videos, but I deleted the first half of the 30 minutes off my camera :( so I have to re film them. so I will have a gypsy video up probably next thursday :) I will have a vacation video done on Wednesday though. I think that is the only updates I have for right now....

Nope.... I have 1 last thing. Robyn is having another give away on her blog!! :) she gives away cricut carts all the time! check her out! Have a great week :)

I'm here! I promise.

Yep, it's been a fun week. My Matty bought me a gypsy and the create a critter cartridge (ADORABLE!) so I've been busy with that. I've filmed about 30 minutes of gypsy videos, so I just have to go through them and do some editing. I just can't pull myself from this thing! I play with it all the time. I love this thing! I have also jumped on the sketch/page map wagon. I think I'm addicted to that as well! I did 5 or so just tonight. Not for sure if I'm going to share them yet, but I might! It's going to be a very busy week for me. I leave Friday morning for my trip to one of my favorite places ever! Texas! I just wish Matt could be there! I also wish it was a vacation! I have back to back wedding appointments to take care of. I do get to go to the beach on Sunday though. So, all of this week I am updating my wedding binder, getting packets together for my vendors etc. I have a 10+ hour drive to Texas, and editing my gypsy videos is what I am planning on doing (for part of it! haha).

Do you all remember when you were younger, and you got something for Christmas, and you LOVED it. You would stare at it, and sleep with it, and carry it around everywhere. Well, that is my relationship with my gypsy the past few days! I slept with it the first night (only because I fell asleep playing with it!) I can't say enough good things about my baby! (still trying to come up with an interesting name for it) I have done some projects I wanna post too, but I have to edit the pictures, so I hope to get those done this week too. My "to do" list for this week is about 10 miles long.

Lastly, I found the most wonderful stamp site this morning. I was sent there from everyday with the circut. They used this adorable stamp set HERE. I am just loving the possibilities for the animal kingdom cartridge and the create a critter cartridge. It's wonderful! Also, another wonderful site is PEACHY KEEN STAMPS. They have faces that you can put on the dolls from the paper doll cartridges. I also didn't know they had animal faces (more AK and CAC cart possibilities) stamps.

Ok, this is lastly. My last post said that cricut was coming out with new carts, and no one seems to know when provocraft will be posting the actual carts. Well, I've heard a rumor that we will get to see them the 3rd thursday in May!! I am so excited to see what else they have coming out!

New cricut stuff?!?

So, I just went to cricut's website, and they have previews for new cricut cartridges to be coming out. It looks like a cat cartridge maybe? And some rocker chick, some really cute food with smilies on them, some holiday stuff, some farm stuff, and some tools. They look really cute :) They also have there new cricut companions for the cuttlebug, which I can't wait to get my hands on! They look like embossing folders that coordinate with some of there cartridges. They have sets for once upon a princess, robotz, heritage, sentimentals, create a critter, and preserves. I am waiting for my tax money to come back, then I am thinking about getting the create a critter cartridge with my left over tax money.

I don't want to break any copy right laws, so I wont post any pictures of the new stuff coming out, but I will post some links! (yea, i'm weird.. huh?)

SHH! Sneak peak for the new carts HERE!
Cricut Companions HERE!

Yikes, I am excited. I really like the cat one that might be coming out. I have been waiting for a cat cartridge for a while now! That will give me more excuses to take pictures of my kitty!
Cute, huh? I also can't wait to see what the food with the smilies is all about. I honestly believe, if you take ANYTHING and put a cute little smile on it, it automatically makes it adorable. I am so happy with where Provocraft has been taking the cartridges lately. I didn't really care for the ones in the begining when I fell in love with the cricut last year, but for the last few months, I have been wanting every cartridge they come out with! That isn't so good on our bank account! haha. 

Changing the subject off of scrapbooking. We have decided to invest in a better video camera, so I will be getting a new video camera when my tax money comes in, so that means I can do more videos! woohoo! 

Ok, last change of subject. I am going to repost this. Everyone should come check out our wedding blog! I just love it! Thanks :)

Hello :)

I am just here for an update! I FINALLY got a hold of Lackland AFB and got some wedding plans moving. woohoo! I should know by May 1 what day I am going to be tying the knot. How exciting! I probably wont be having any new layouts to post any time soon. I have to make an estimated 50 thank you cards for the wedding. "Thank you for coming" "thank you for the gifts" and of course "thank you for everything" for the people involved in this planning! I hope 50 cards will cover me! They will need to be blue and silver to match our wedding colors. I don't like using those colors! So, this will be fun.

I just wanted to let you guys know about a great cause that Jennifer is supporting. I think she's been doing this for a while, but to those who don't know about it, go check it out. Her link is over ---> there somewhere on the top. lol. Jennifer Mcguire Ink. Then on the right side of her blog it's cards for kids. She has 10 kids that are dealing with cancers and other illnesses and she collects cards and then sends the cards to them. It's a great cause. Plus she gives out prize drawings every month, but that isn't why we are sending out cards! So, go over there and send your cards to her!

And of course, I also have to mention this great site as well.... CARDS FOR SOLDIERS. I am sure most of you know that Matt is deployed right now. Someone sent his base a box of cards and Matt sent one to me. It made my day. I read it every night before bed. I still cry whenever I read that card that he sent me. So I can't even tell you the impact that a simple card has when it comes from someone over there. Anyways. This site sends homemade cards (that are not filled out) to send to the soldiers in the middle east and the soldiers fill them out, and send them home to there loved ones. So go over there and check it out, make some cards and send them off . For the next round, they need to be sent to her by May 9th, and she is taking father's day and 4th of july cards. I am pretty sure that she always take birthday cards, miss you, and thank you cards. This is for sure something that hits home with me. I can't even tell you how awesome it is to get a letter in the mail! Thanks guys :)


ETA: Woohoo, figured out how to edit a blog post :) hehe. I didn't feel like making a new blog post for one little part. I have a wedding website now. So come check it out :)COME CHECK OUT OUR WEDDING WEBSITE!

Sad Day

Well, I thought I could just edit my last post to put these pictures up, but I guess not. So I'll just post my new pictures here.

All of the other drawers are just full of random junk and some are empty, so I didn't show those :) I hope that this has inspired you and helped with any jetmax questions or any organization help you were needing!

My scrapbook area

Hey guys! 2 posts in one day? Wow! I finally did a scrapbook area video. I am getting some pictures edited, then I will be posting pictures tonight! Please check back later :)

Another LO

Well, I got on the youtube train today. :) I only have 3 videos of my cat, but I was messing around with a video editing program and didn't wanna mess up a good video! Anyways, you guys should check out my videos. Hopefully I will be getting a video of my scrap space up this week.

my new youtube videos

That link should take you to my "channel" lol.  I have a new LO to post as well!

This is another lift from Kelly Goree (who can be found in the blog post below this post). I just love her LO's using the new Basic Grey Green At Heart. Anyways. I think that is all I have for today!

New layout

Woohoo, 2 new followers! Welcome! haha. I have a new layout to post. I actually scrap lifted the whole thing from the wonderful Kelly Goree (Basic Grey designer). I am kind of having a hard time getting into this paper line. I think it's simply yummy though! I love the little animals and butterflies this line has... Anyways. Here are the pictures!

So there is my layout for today. I love how Kelly did all of the layering, so of course I had to lift her ideas! I am not good at coming up with ideas myself, but I love a good lift! Thanks for looking!

Boy it's been a long few months, but hopefully I am back to stay! I am sorry to all 9 of my followers. haha!

My mom had a heart attack, and I am now planning a wedding, a scrapbook retreat, and a trip to Texas. Whew! Talk about being busy. Matt is coming home in June, so I am also planning stuff for our 2+ weeks where he will be home. I am so excited to see him again. Sadly, I haven't made any projects recently that have been "blog worthy" but I do have a pretty nice picture of Matt!!

Isn't he adorable!! Even with him holding 3 different guns! lol! I will hopefully have some pages and maybe even my first video! I have done a lot to my scrap area, so maybe I'll do a video of my scrap area :)
