Still Scrappin' Away..

I told you all that I have been scrappin' like a crazy woman lately and I wasn't kidding! I have all kinds of projects going, in different stages, all over my kitchen and coffee tables. I wanted to share a few projects that I really enjoyed working on and have FINALLY finished. Remember a while back my friend Judi sent me all these beautiful goodies:

Well, look what I made so far. This first LO is my entry into this weeks Scrapping the Music challenge. The song is 'It's My Life' by Bon Jovi. I LOVE this song! It is so FUN and upbeat. This is just a fun, happy, pic of me in the moment:

I found this old photo of me as a baby with my parents. The journaling is behind the photo. I have a kind of running (inside) joke with my son. Let me explain. I have one sister (Debbie) that is 3 years younger than me. When ever I show my son a picture of me as a baby or toddler, I tell him it is bad (B.A.D.) before Aunt Debbie. Haha...

Anyways, I really liked how this came out with such a vintage look, using the Prima Crystals and the Hambly Transparency:

This last one is of a 'beach day' I took with my son recently and we had a blast! Fun times! I loved the ocean colors and the Prima crystals reminded me of waves:

I have been trying to catch up on my blog reading lately. I have been getting a little behind. I came across the award below given to me by my friend Liz. Thanks for the Love Liz! Now I get to nominate some of the blogs that I enjoy.
