Where have I been?!!!

*Sorry for the bad pictures of my desk!!! These were taken at night!* But this is what I was buried under for almost two and a half weeks! Literally there was not a moment that I was not scrapping! :P This was my first CHA, and man oh man they weren't lying when they said the deadlines are crazy! (And *ahem* just in case you were wondering: the floor is worse. That is why there is no pic of it! :P)

Well since then I have been working very hard on trying to get my area purged, cleaned and organized! :D I would give you progress pictures, but with the small amount of space I have to work with you kinda have to make a mess in order to get it cleaned and organized. Know what I mean? :P

In the meantime I will show you my last projects for The Scrapbook Nook! :D Have been meaning to show these for forever!!

For this first one I went crazy and did a two pager!!! My second two pager ever, and I'll have to admit it was a lot of fun! A challenge, but fun! These pictures of my daughter were taken when she was about ten months, and goodness! do you see those cheeks?! How were they that chubby and I seriously don't remember?! I couldn't belive it! So of course I had to do a LO about that!

Paper: Basic Grey, Kraft and Cream cardstock
Chipboard: Basic Grey
Stickers: Basic Grey
Flowers: Prima
Stamp: Cat's Life Press
White pen: Sakura pen
Turquoise Pen: Copic Atyou Spica pen
Butterfly punch: Martha Stewart

And this one is completely a new thing for me: a 6x12!!! This one was also fun to do! Love the picture of her curls!!! But to be honest, her hair has seriously grown double what is in this pic right now!!!! Well maybe not double, but it's getting pretty stinkin close! I am going to have to take a pic and show you, because it is pretty incredible the little wringlets!

Paper: Basic Grey, Cream cardstock
Chipboard: Basic Grey

This next LO I actually combined the Scrapbook Nook's July kit and the new Kitschy Digitals Washi Tape Frames kit!!! Love love love these frames!!! I decided to stay very simple with this LO. And I really like how it turned out! :D

And I actually have a little toot about the three LOs above: they all got accepted to the Basic Grey Gallery today!!! I am so excited!! My first things in the BG gallery! :D I am just a little giddy over it. :P

Now this project I actually taught as a class over at The Scrapbook Nook! Click here to see part 1, and here to see part 2. This project is like the other one that I did using Sassafras Lass products, but a ton simpler!!!! The whole thing is originally stemmed off of a project I saw in Making Memories Baby Love book. The original project is by Maggies Holmes! She does awesome stuff! The whole explaination and how-to is set up in the class links. Go check it out!!! I would love to see what you do! ;D

"off to change diaper and clean house.." HA! I say that a hundred times a day! If it makes you feel any better my scrap space mess is WAY worse than that...and I didn't have any pressing deadlines to meet! So really no excuse! I think there should be a contest as to the messiest scrap area...I *might* win that one ;)
Love all your lo's..2 pagers scare me, but you did this one SO beautifully! May have to copy :)

You really are amazing. Really. So, so pretty. And if it makes you feel any better--my scrap/sewing spot is my dining room table. It looks like that about 80% of the time.

I'm sure my family gets tired of eating at the kitchen island!

It's my first time here and I love what you are doing with paper! Your 6x12 is fabulous, I just bought some page protectors for 6x12s so I want to give this a try.
