This week I've been tagged by my sweet friend Nancy (thanks girl, this was so fun!). I thought that this would be something really cool to try! It's such a fun tag!!!! It's called "Photo" Tagging!
The RULES are to go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures. Go to the 6th Folder, then pick the 6th picture in that folder. Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture.Tag 6 other people that you know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.
This picture is of Bryant and I a couple of years ago at our hotel pool, while we were vacationing in Charlotte, NC. We are huge Nascar fans and we had the best time checking out all the race shops in the heart of Nascar country. We also enjoyed time in the pool, 'cause it was so HOT there. Steve took the pic of us (he never goes swimming!) B and I love it!

I scrapped about my newest favorite ornament using mostly items from my December Scarlet Lime Kit and a few other goodies from my stash (Heidi Swapp metalic chipboard letters, a Jenni Bowlin calendar card and Making Memories journaling paper). This was a challenge for me. Wow, one piece of paper, but then it just came together and I loved the result. Check out the challenge and the other FAB LO's from the gals here, They are truly awesome!

Okay, the article is truly a disappointment to me. First off the LO was done by someone that did not know Aleida.Though the pics were supplied by her husband, I think they should have had the LO made by someone that really knew her, family or friend. The article did convey her great online presence and all the friends she had made through this great hobby. She made many friends through many sites. I, myself got to know her through SIS TV . She was also on the DT for Scrappin' the Music. The only site that was mentioned in the article was Studio Calico. Don't get me wrong, Studio Calico is a great online community. All the gals are sweet and welcoming, but to me the site being mentioned (more than once!) sounded more like an advertisement. I guess I was really looking for more. The very short article, written by someone that does not know her, did not really portray the real spirit of Aleida. I am truly disappointed. Okay, I will get off my soapbox now. If you have read the article...what do YOU think??

A goal of mine this past year was to create more LO's with pictures of myself. Document my life too. Kind of hard when I am always behind the camera. Here is just a simple LO I made using Teresa Collins papers and some Prima bling. I got to be little girly and was so happy with the result:
This LO is of my BFF and I at a Kenny Chesney concert this past April. We had the best time!
This is a picture of my friends Debbie, Debbie and I at CKC Manchester:
I also had fun playing around with a little sketch I found online, some pretty Pink Paislee papers and a pic from my office. Glad I did this then, because I have a new office now:

Here is what I did. Though this is not totally my idea, I had a bit of a different take on it. I started with some plastic packaging (that I was going to throw away anyways!), some rub-ons ( I have tons of these!) and my Quickutz:
First, I rubbed the rub-ons all over the plastic (in no particular fashion):
Next, I used my Quickutz to cut out the letters that are to be my LO title:
I LOVE the random 'snowy' look of them. I used silver rub-ons with a black background, but you could make so many color combos. All being so unique and different. Here is a close-up of my title:
and...ta da... my completed LO. Of course, I also used the fabulous Scarlet Lime November kit (I just LOVE the colors!):
I had seen this idea used before for embelishments, but never for letters. So, I thought that it would be different. This is my take on the challenge. Give this a try or create something of your own. We would really LOVE to see what you come up with. There is still time. You have until January 14th. Oh, and did I mention there is a really cool prize for the winner? You can check out the challenge post here. Good Luck and have FUN!

I don't get to scrap with pink very much, so I guess this was my chance to go a little wild. I used some bright papers from Hambly, Lil Davis and some pretty Prism cardstock that I got in a kit from Sis tv called 'Rock Star'. I Love how funky and fun they are. Of course I had to add some aqua bling. A girl can never have enough bling! LOL! Here is a top view of the card. Again really loved this design! You can check out Nancy's class here.

Pages 8 & 9-A cute pic of Bryant with his candycane Oreos. YUM! and a co-worker of mine did not want us to forget the "reason for the season". So true!
Pages 10 & 11-Nutcracker scenery that Bryant helped paint at the YMCA and a sweet ornament that he made for me. So cute!
