My term is done :(

Well my time is up for the Design team over at APOS. I am actually quite sad about this. I had a blast, couldn't wait each month to find out what we had to create and feel truly blessed to have been selected a year ago along with some very talented ladies.

The announcement for the new inspiration team will be made this Wednesday and I can't wait to find out what ladies with be inspiring me on a daily basis.

For now I plan on scrapping more, submitting layouts more often and hopefully learning a bunch of new techniques.

I want to thank Alissa for a great year. There were times you really did challenge us with the papers you picked. Love you for that!!

New Brunswick is beautiful!

We just got back from our vacation to New Brunswick to visit my Aunt and Uncle and let me say it is just the most beautiful province ever! (well at least out of the ones I have seen - LOL)

So over the next week I thought I would share a few photos from our vacation. Today I decided I would share a few nature photos.

Ten on Tuesday

O.k well Thursday. I know I am 2 days late on this but we have been busy here since returning from vacation. So better late than never right?!?!?

This week I thought it would be fun to list 10 things I would love to buy but can't afford right now or is just over the top outrageous.

1. Apple Ipad - I think they are the coolest things ever!
2. A new camera - I have a Sony DSC-H9 and I really don't like it at all.
3. A hot tub - There was one in the hotels we stayed in while on vacation and I find them so relaxing
4. A garage for our house. I really don't want to do another winter of scraping off my car windshield.
5. All of the new releases in Scrapbooking (and I mean everything!)
6. A cricut Expression. I really want to upgrade from my baby bug
7. A cottage that is right on the water. I find it so peaceful being right on the water and really wish I was back in NB right now.
8. A e-reader - I want to get back into reading more and think these are pretty darn cool
9. Apple Macbook - can you tell I am a bit addicted right now to all things computer related :)
10. A nice buffet hutch that will go in my living room to act as my organizational area for everything (school items from the kids, mail, place for keys and phones - basically a place to organize all that stuff that comes into the house)

So there it is...my list of 10....now what are 10 things you would love to have right now but can't afford.

October LOAD

I have signed up for LOAD again. The last LOAD in May I wasn't able to get a layout done each day so my goal for this next one is to complete the whole month. I had so much fun last time and recieved a lot of inspiration from the other ladies that I couldn't pass up doing it again.

I also signed up for a new site called Scrap Happy. It is run by Lain Ehmann (she runs LOAD). Here is the link. I am anxiously awaiting my password so I can get on the site and hopefully start creating and get rid of this scrappers block. So hopefully real soon you will be seeing lots of new layouts and cards from me!

I think I have lost my scrappy mojo :(

but there was a good reason, if there really ever is a good reason to lose your scrappy mojo. For the past month we have been working on our brand new kitchen! We had a company come in and install the cabinets but we had to remove the old ones, put up new drywall, take out part of a wall and paint. I am in love with my new kitchen! It looks so bright and cheerful now. I enjoy cooking every day and even christened it last week by baking brownies from scratch. (I usually buy the box kind). They were short a bit of the crown molding for the top so that is on backorder but the rest of it is all done!

So I am sorry there are no new layouts to show off but I do have some beautiful new kitchen photos :)
