Scrapping Alphabetically - the letter B

So I am a little behind schedule, okay maybe a lot being schedule with my layouts that I am suppose to be doing once a week but the good news is I have been doing them - getting them posted has been a challenge, lol. So I am going to attempt to catch up over the next three days.

This is my Basic Grey layout using the new Plumeria line. The colors went well with my daughter's prom pictures from last year. And even though I tried to fight it, I am addicted to washi tape!!! Just a little strip adds the right touch.

Wednesday Ramblings

Just a few thoughts, I promise to get back to scrapbooking tomorrow, lol.

  • Even though I feel like there is not enough time in the day, would I really want more added?

  • I have several layouts done just need to take photos.

  • Pilar and Deion Sanders divorce is messy, who is really thinking about the kids?

  • Why would anyone eat a "Heart Attack" burger, the name says it all.

  • Reality check - Sixers vs the Heat in the playoffs -ummm I love you philly but not a chance!

  • Disclaimer - just because something is made in your size does not make it fit to wear - enough said!

  • How is it possible to have over 400 channels and the only thing good to watch is King of Queens reruns?

  • Found a great fish market in Upper Darby, the Rainbow Trout was awesome!!!!

  • I never miss an episode of Cupcake Wars, even if I have to DVR it.

  • Why are my dogs so noisy when they are cleaning themselves, yuck!

  • In a good mood today - I pity the fool who ruins it, lol.

  • It is nice to still have men open the doors for you, a favorite perk at my job.

  • Today is National Walk at lunch day - get to steppin!!!!

  • True friends are forever, glad to have you back!

  • I heard Think like a Man is a good movie, maybe the girls and I will have a date night Friday?

  • Time to cut the strings, not as easy as I thought.

  • 4 sisters+5 different personalities = my family, I love them a lot.

What the WIP!!!

My WIPs (Works in Progress) are running amuck!!! I think that I have a pile of almost 15 layouts that I have started and for some reason or another I just can't say that they are finished. I drive Mika crazy with it because she says most of them are done, what more do I want to add? To be honest I can't answer that, lol. I just don't have that feeling of completion. Case in point this layout - I want it to be done, I thought it was done, I even said it was done at one time but now looking at it I feel like it is missing something. so I am going to channel my WIP muse tonight to guide me as I attempt to finish this layout, lol.

This is the Voice

So who is keeping up with The Voice? Even though I am trying to ween myself off of reality shows I have to admit that I am hooked. My favorite artist so far is ...........................................Juliet Simms. I love 80s rock - The Bangles, Duran Duran, Annie Lennox, Cyndi Lauper, Boy George, George Michaels, 
The GoGos, Phil Collins, and of course Sting. I have played her version of "Roxanne" 10 times this week alone. Her voice is gritty and powerful, go Juliet!!!!!!

I Couldn't Resist

Once I saw the May card kit being offered over at Simon Says Stamps I knew I just had to have it! This kit looks like a ton of fun and it features the brand new Basic Grey collection. I am sure since it is jam-packed with supplies there will be enough for my layouts too. I did resist making other purchases at the same time so now I will be stalking my mail carrier when this is shipped, lol. Since it is a May kit I am not counting it as a part of my April spending freeze, how is that for rationalizing, lol.

Scrapping Alphabetically

Have you seen this post from my sister Mika? She is so awesome and she keeps me on my toes. We are always trying to think of ways of using our supplies. Not just because we love to scrap but also that way we can buy even more supplies, lol. So right now we have challenged each other to scrap using manufacturers alphabetically. The crazy part is that I think between the two of us we definitely have products that span the alphabet ............... hmmmmm is that a good thing or the sign of a serious problem, lol. Here is my American crafts layout using the Margarita collection.

Platinum Scrap Reveal

Hi Scrappers! This week's design team sketch stretched my creativity brain cells. This week we were given a two page layout and boy oh boy was it a challenge for me. My layout has been revealed on the site today but here are a few little sneek peeks for you. Be sure to visit me on the Platinumscraps blog to see the entire layout.

Got to keep moving!

Let me introduce you to the twins. My husband and I have matching bikes and we have been going on Saturday morning bike rides. Why is that noteworthy, well because it has been many, many, many years since I have been on a bicycle. I am trying to boost my confidence (even though I am still afraid to ride in the street). We follow a bike trail through our section of the city, which is pretty cool but it is a long ride. I do have one tip for the ladies though that I learned the hard way - maxipads and bicycle seats do not work well together, lol.

I haven't posted pictures in a while but my hubby has stepped up his flower game. He has gone from every other week to every week, lucky me! It is nice having fresh flowers in the house all of the time. I really, really love my orchids. They last a long time and are sooo beautiful.

And finally look what my daughter bought for me! We were in Michaels getting ribbon for my next diaper cake and we saw this. I am on a self-inflicted spending freeze so I couldn't buy it (even though it was 40% off with an extra 20% off coupon) so she offered to buy it for me. I have been looking for a server for my dining room and I can display this holder on top of it. This will be a good way to share some of my favorite layouts with my family.
