Welcome to February!!

Welcome to February!!

So I wanted to share how well I did last month on Project 2011 Scrap Our Stash. I did not buy any scrap stuff at all!!
Woo Hoo!!

Of course, it didn't hurt that I was on a spending freeze for January and that I had 2 surgeries and really couldn't go out and spend!! LOL

If you don't already know about it Project 2011 SoS is a challenge that Denise at Lala's World has started to help encourage us to use our stash.

I think she is planning to do it for 6 months (not sure) but I am doing it month by month. And really I am just using it as a way to be more conscious of using my stash instead of buying new all the time.

Go check out her blog and see what you think. You can sign up for this challenge too!!

I thought I would start you out with a cute photo my baby girl, G. I took this picture yesterday while we were outside and she was playing.

I feel kind of bad because the weather has been really pretty nice here in Las Vegas and it seems like the rest of the US is getting pounded by snow.

My brother is here helping me out while I recover from my surgeries and he loves the snow. And it is blizzard conditions right now where he lives. So he is really missing it.

It is pretty funny to watch him glued to the weather channel hoping for a glimpse of the snow at home! lol

Are you getting pounded by snow where you live??? Or is the weather nice?

I actually scrapped for the first time since my surgery.

Yippee!! ha

I made a card for my February 1st Card challenge at Sketches4you. All you have to do is use this gorgeous sketch from Pagemaps and the colors Pink and Gray.

Go over and join in!!

I also wanted to give you a heads up....starting February 4th until February 8th - Sketches4you is having Valentine Decor and Blog Hop. There will be tons of fun challenges and RAKS. Come and be inspired, have fun and maybe win something!!

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Tell that brother of yours that the snow has reached almost the top of the fence where it has blown (sp). The temp is suppose to be "0" tonight, not windshield but the real temp. Tomorrow I will take pictures of it for him, as per Dad's orders.
    Thats a cute picture of Gigi...
    Love to all

  2. Cool card Stacy! The "love" part is so neat. I added your link for Jan sos.

  3. Great card! Love the color combo!
    I stumbled upon LaLa's world and I was amazed! I don't know if I could do it! The longest I went was 2 weeks then I cracked! I need my supplies! But then I look and realize I can scrap every day and not use them all! Maybe I will try for only once a month? Does that count??

  4. Very pretty card!!
    Such a fun sketch!!
    We don't get snow here except every 20 years!
    We were at 65 today & sunny!
    That bad cold front is coming our way now so we are suppose to get down to 25 to 30 tonight!
    We might see a couple snow flurries or flakes! LOL!
    We usually only get this cold maybe once evey few years so its really a fluke for us!!
    We are hoping for an inch of snowe that would be awesome but if we dont we will see it in CA. in April!
    Glad to hear you are getting better!

  5. Yes, that is a beautiful photo of your baby girl!

    Beautiful card! I haven't been scrapping today, but maybe I'll start in a few minutes. I should at least try to do your card I guess... :-)

  6. Hi there I found your blog on Sticky Vickys site and stopped by for a look. I am loving the cards you have made. I have made a few cards lately but find I dont have the same inspiriation for them, not the way I have for mini albums or scrapbooking. I shall keep an eye out for ideas with you I think x
