The next picture is of my sweet little Sophie dog. She has found herself a spot up on my pile of "hidden" scraps. Poor dog!! lol You know she can't be comfortable because that is a pile of paper she is laying on (vertical paper).
I couldn't help sharing it with you even though it shows what a mess my area is because she just looks so cute lying there.
How does your scrap area look? Are messy like me or organized?? If you are organized can you give me any good ideas on how to get organized in this space??
Leave me a few comments...I'm sure I am laying in bed bored.....(recovering)

I hope you had a great weekend. It is now Monday and I am going to share a double layout I made last weekend.
I started this layout while I was at CKC in Seattle. I decided to finish it up last weekend so that I would have a few things ready to post while I was down after surgery...so here you go.
I actually started these layouts in an inking class...so that is why there is so much ink around the pages!! ha
They are pictures of my baby girl. She is hanging out in my office and has turned over a cardboard box and made it into her own writing desk. I thought she looked cute so I took the pictures. She also told me to take her picture!! ha
She is a pistol!! She is such fun...I am going to be missing her while she is in school. I sure hope she did well at school again today!! It is all so new to her but she does love, love, love the playground!! ha
Don't forget that the Bling On 2011 is going on at Sketches4you. My challenge is still going too on until the 19th so go check it out.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday!!

I have just finished doing the Flaunt it Friday Hello Kitty Blog Hop. Good grief it was super long! LOL
But it was also so fun to see every one's creations and get inspired.
I finally finished up a layout I started last night. I was over at Sketches4you looking around and saw the Bling On 2011 Pre-challenge offered by Christy.
Her challenge is to use glimmer mist or sequins on a paper creation.
I was really excited to do this challenge because I took a Glimmer Mist class at the Seattle CKC and did this great technique that saturates the paper and looks kind of like tie die.
I just love the look so much. I got out my Glimmer Mist and went crazy spraying my white card stock. You just soak the paper with the different colors and then take a paper towel and blot up the excess spray off the paper.
After I let it dry I started out trying to use a sketch but that really didn't work out for me. I didn't really want to cover up that much of the paper.
I used a b/w photo of my dd. I thought it would be a good contrast to all the color on the paper.
I messed around with it and adhered some things but never really liked it. I pulled everything off of it I could and I put it aside until this morning and sent a picture of it off to my buddy, Denise with an SOS. I just needed some inspiration. Her suggestion was "glimmer mist some flowers".
And that was all it took. I got out some white Prima flowers and sprayed the heck out of them. Since this is for the Bling on 2011 event, I figured some bling was in order too. And then of course you need crystal Stickles on it... (don't you need crystal Stickles on everything?? lol) I had a cute butterfly border edge piece that I cut up and added. Finally, I came up with my title and voila!
I love it. What do you think??
Now for a funny...
This Christmas I decided to set up a little scrap space in Oklahoma with supplies so that I wouldn't have to cart them back and forth every time we visited (which is all the time). I brought some things from home and I asked for a few things for Christmas.
One of the things I asked for was a stapler. I asked my mom to get me a stapler and asked her to have it be a longer one... so I could reach farther across my layouts to staple.
This is what she got me.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL This stapler has a 12 1/2 inches long reach!!!!!!!!!! It is hilarious! But cool too. I had to take it home with me! HA
So now I still need a stapler for Oklahoma...
Anyone have any fun plans this weekend?? We have nothing planned and I am thrilled about it! Maybe I will be able to scrap, organize my scrap stuff, play with the kids, spend time with my husband, read...etc etc.
By the way, I didn't make a card with my scraps...because I had no scraps...lol So I am still doing great with my self challenge!! woo hoo
Have a blessed weekend!!

"Hi Stacy, aren't we getting spoiled rotten here!! I LOVE IT!! Well, a follower I am so there's no gain for you there LOL! Gee, something interesting about me, I'm not that interesting I think...how about the fact that I have a motorcycle licence and have driven my own Honda Shadow Chopper 700cc until 2 months ago?! That is something bloggers don't know about me. Kinda cool don't you think!? I just sold my motorbike to a friend, because I didn't take it out often enough anymore. But my hubby still owns a BMW motorcycle so I do tag along with him still. Going byking in Italy next May for 2 weeks!! Hugs, Frea"
Frea, email me your address so I can mail you your goodies!!
You guys have until January 10th to email me - then I will pick another winner.
So there you have it my two winners. If you didn't enter...aren't you a little sad??!! lol It could have been you....maybe next time.
Happy New Years to all my sweet followers (and the not so sweet ones too!! LOL)!! I hope that 2011 is a very good year for you all. Hugs!!
