Happy Presidents Day!!

Hi there!! It is Monday and I was a scrapping fool this weekend!!! I'm going to start you off with this layout I made using some luscious BoBunny paper and stickers that I got in them mail from my "boss", Fia, over at Sketches4all.

I used a sketch challenge that Jessica has going over there right now as my creative inspiration. It was a bit like putting a puzzle together. The picture is of my hubby and I on our wedding day.

I did a ton of fussy cutting and cut out the title work with my Cricut using the Cutting Up cartridge. And I went totally crazy with my crystal Stickles but it just seemed like this lovely dovey layout needed the sparkle. I added some ribbon from my stash.

It is just so obnoxious that I love how it turned out!! lol

I was faithful to my self-challenge and made this card with the scraps. Don't tell my hubby about it because he is getting it for our anniversary! lol Hopefully he doesn't read this post!! I used a yummy sketchabilities sketch.
It seemed totally fitting to post about Prima's Product Picks for February on this post because I used their Prima Color Pallette as my inspiration for my layout and card!!
Aren't all these products so totally yummilicious??? (I'm sure that is a word...if not, it should be!! LOL) I would DIE to win them.... Fingers crossed they pick my name!! lol

There is still time for you to try to win this collection of goodies too. So hurry on over and get in on the fun!

It is kind of crazy because my kids and I have been sick for weeks and finally we went to see the doctor on Saturday and guess what?? We have allergies. We are taking some allergy medicine and we all feel soooooooooooo much better!!!! Such a simple fix.

It was recommended that I keep the kids in this weekend because the air quality is bad right now and it is very windy....which has been crazy since it is a holiday weekend and longer than normal.... They have been going stir crazy.

We were supposed to have rainy weather here but it rained one night while we were sleeping and now it is just cool and sunny. Which makes it even harder to keep the kids in the house.

I was supposed to have my electrician out today to fix a few things in the house but he called to say that the guards on the front gate wouldn't let them in because it is a holiday and "there will be no work done in the neighborhood today"!

How annoying is that?? What if my washer was broken? Seems ridiculous to not let him in when he is doing quiet work inside... Oh well...he is coming tomorrow instead.

How is your holiday weekend going?? I'm missing my follower friends comments!! Has anything inspired you creatively lately?? Want to share??

  5. oh wow hun this is one,amazing layout,and that card is just stunning,brilliant hugs cheryl xx

  6. First off, I'd be down at that guard gate setting things should be able to have them come whenever you need them! Hubby and I moved to a new place a while back and the main breaker blew the first time we cooked dinner for the girls as the stove wasn't wired in properly. It was 9:30 at night! Thankfully our family friend, an electrician, dragged himself away from his pool and Coronas to come help us, as we didn't realize there were 2 separate breaker boxes! Gotta love old houses!

    Your page is beautiful, I just love that Bo Bunny! And it isn't obnoxious you love it...did you read my last post, where I said "this is the best page I've created this year?" Yeah, I guess that's obnoxious too LMAO

    Hope the kids don't go too stir crazy, Patryk just has croup *again.* Looks like we aren't going anywhere for vacation!

    Have a great day *****hugs*******
