The original plan was to do 1 a week. I got the first one done, then I found black mold in my house, and had to move out and my creative flow was seriously disrupted, and I've been having a hard time getting it back. I'm determined to scrap more in the new year before the baby comes and I have no time!! I'll kick it off with a 12 hour crop on Wrestling day at my LSS. For those of you who don't live in Williams Lake, Wrestling Day is our after New Years Day holiday...ya know, Boxing Day after Christmas, Wrestling Day after New Years Day...hehe
So, stay tuned for the second installment of the 50 most important things. I'll post it on January 3rd!

But now that I've had some time to process it some more, I'm really excited, and I know I'm going to be super busy (Caleb and the new baby are going to be only 15 months apart), but it will be awesome! Everything happens for a reason, and at least this way, we'll go through all the stages quite quickly between the two of them. I'm pretty sure that this will be our last baby too...which does make me feel a little sad. Part of me doesn't want to be done having kids, but I really don't want to have 4. I think it just makes me a little sad to know that there will be no more babies after this, but it has to be like that at some point...I know I don't want to be another "Dugger" family! lol So, I'm due May 2nd. And we're pretty excited!! I have a little pic of the teeny little one here too...
although this ultrasound was too soon to find out, we will be finding out what this one is eventually...we didn't with our first two, but I want to this time...So, I'll keep you posted!!

But life is good, and I have managed to do a little scrapping here and there, and I am very excited to get going on my next project (I have part of the Quickutz holiday gift set to play with! shhh!! But I'm not allowed to tell anyone what it is!!! hahahahaaaa!!) I'll post my work with them...when they come out of course! lol I know, I'm evil!! Muahahahaaa!!
Anyway, here's some of my latest pages. The Halloween one I finished before I even moved out here, but I've been too lazy (and without a pc) to get it posted...but without further adieu...

I am definately looking forward to a little down time...who knows maybe in a week or so, my bedroom will be unpacked, and I can enjoy a little "me" time, playing with all my scrap supplies! I've been going through crazy withdrawls! I've been scrapbooking in my head, so by the time I actually get to sit down and glue pictures to paper, I might be on quite a roll! lol!
Anyway, it's past my bedtime, so goodnight everyone and thanks for checking out my little corner of the web!

I definately recommend that you check out her site KChipman Photography. It has a huge sample of her work, and you will not be dissapointed!

I chose this picture of my mom and sisters in Disneyland because I've always loved it there and it does have such magical sounds. They may not be the typical sounds of summer, but what's the fun in doing something typical? And I figured since California is pretty much summery all the time, it's the perfect pic for the "sounds of summer"
The technique we had to use this week was all of the other previous techniques in one LO. So we had to incorporate stitching, fussy cutting, painting, and doodling. I finally used my Bazzil stitching templates to stitch the flourish over the picture. I was quite impressed with how easy they were to use (once I finally stabbed the needle through a picture and 2 layers of cardstock! lol) I hand painted little stars and randomly added bling to some of them. I hand cut the square holes that have the hand cut paislees in them also. I used the new Haunted alphabet from Quickutz, which I'm absolutely in love with! It's so creepy, but can also be really great for a whimsical LO like this one!
This will probably be the last of the scrapping until I get into my new place unfortunately. I can already feel the withdrawl setting in!

The last day we were there we went to Whiterock and spent the morning at the beach. For that reason alone I wished that we lived down at the coast. I couldn't handle all the traffic and busy-ness, but I LOVE the ocean, and the kids have sooo much fun there!
All in all, it was a really good trip! We had quite the scare on the way home though. In 100 mile we went to fill up our tank and it wouldn't accept our card, so we thought we'd spent all our money! We couldn't even check until we got home! For whatever reason it didn't work, it wasn't because we were broke, thank God! But what a scare!
So, now we're back to reality...and packing up our house to move, but I will keep you all posted on our progress, and maybe if I'm lucky, I'll get to scrap a bit here and there!
Ciao for Now!

Here's a quick LO I did last night. I kind of threw it together really quickly for the Dixie Pieces Challenge. This week's LO was to be about the Tastes of Summer. This pic was taken this summer of my youngest son while he was eating his first (fruit or veggie?) avacado. He didn't really like it, and he still doesn't. We had to incorporate painting on this one, which was good because I've really been into painting on my layouts these days, although I'd never painted on my picture until last night, but I quite like it.

I used the Quickutz 4x4 single pop up door and put a picture of each family member on the outside. The inside has the gift (what I wish Ethan to learn from each person).
I have no idea what patterned papers I used (I have a "supposed" 12x12 paper holder that I have to cut off the labels before I put them in otherwise they don't fit!) therefore, I don't know what they are! But I can tell you what Quickutz I used:
REV pop up door
Metro skinni minni
Central Park CC
Vinyl art dandilion
2 different scallop borders
So there you go! You can also check out Kaylyn's Site for her version of week 1!

She had just purchased this book as well and had decided to scrapbook all 50 subjects in the book. It really inspired me and after picking up the book I really wanted to do this as well! So I got in touch with her and we decided to do a weekly Challenge where we scrapbook each of the 50 subjects and post them up here for everyone to see. So every Wednesday, we will each be posting our interpretations of these subjects! I'm really excited and I think it's going to be a lot of fun! Stay tuned for the first one coming up this Wednesday. The subject is : Talents and Gifts

This page was inspired by Kaylyn Bar, she does some amazing work, you can check out her blog at http://lifecreatingart.blogspot.com
I used the silhouette to cut out a giant label and used it as a stensil and painted over it to leave the white space in the background. I love this technique! Thanks for the idea Kaylyn! I used a new alphabet background download from the silhouette inside the label. The alphabet is QK Fiesta. I also used these cute little Raindots by Cloud 9 Design to make some little flourishes on the two corners. The PP is Fancy Pants and both the yellow, blue and orange all came from the same page, I just used both sides!
I just love that smile! What a little flirt he is too! He just got his first tooth on Sunday. He was chewing on my finger like he always does, and all of a sudden I felt this little dagger in my finger! They're so sharp when they first come in! I knew it was coming though, I've been waiting for his teeth for like 2 months! I could see them under his gums forever, but they just took their time coming in. Not like I'm complaining! Now I have to worry about him biting me when I feed him! OUCH! hehe I can't believe how fast these kids are growing up...it makes me a little sad...I guess it's time to have another one! hehe! I think my husband might have something else to say on that matter! When your kids are this cute, how can you not want to have more?!

I was just looking at the online silhouette store, and I'm on overload right now! I'm like adding everything into my shopping cart! looks like I'm going to have to go with the unlimited downloads...or go broke! hehe
well, once I figure out how to use it, you can look forward to some pages done silhouette style!
I'm going to go try to sleep now! hehe

I made the photo corner from a chipboard frame from Maya Road that I painted blue first, then added green glitter to it as the paint dried, then I cut it in half.
I used the quickutz pop up flourish and cut ghost shapes out with it. I used the quickutz plastic packaging. (it doesn't cut really, but I ran it through like 4 times, then used a utility knife to cut out the shape) Then I covered it with Diamond Glaze to make them look like water drops.

He's been trying sooo hard to roll from his back to his front, and today I put him on his tummy, and he rolled over so easily! I missed it of course! I just looked back at him and he was on his back again! Then later tonight, I put him on his stomach again, turned around, then looked back at him, and he was on his back again! I still haven't actually seen him roll over, but he's done it twice now!
On another note, there is a mosquito in my computer room that is biting the hell outta my legs and it's going to DIE!!
goodnight, I must go mosquito hunting!

Anyway, I've got to go and try to sleep...I've got to drive to Kamloops in two days, so I need to get as much sleep as I can because I'm driving solo! My mother in law is coming with us, but she can't drive, and my husband is working...so I'm the only one driving...I will need an intravenus of caffeine and I should be alright!

I did these two cards for a Hero Arts complementary colors challenge. I didn't even know I had another Hero Arts stamp...it turns out I have 3! The background is the Hero Arts celebrate wordprints stamp. On the card with the black background, I embossed the stamp with white embossing powder and added some bling to the cake. I added bling to the background on the one with the white background, and a couple little blingies on the cake and stand as well! gotta have the bling! I did the white background first, then it inspired me to use the opposites for the other card. I really liked the first card that I made, but now I can't decide which one I like better...
if you have a favourite, let me know!

On another note, I got a totally wicked sunburn that day! I was shocked because it was hardly sunny out!

We didn't do too much in Whistler, just walked around the villiage, but it was nice and relaxing. I would've loved to go zip-trecking, but I didn't want to put the kids in daycare there. Caleb is way too young for me to feel comfortable with that, and Ethan would've freaked! He's not good with daycare.
After Whistler, came the big day for Ethan! A Day Out With Thomas in Squamish! He had sooo much fun! He got his picture taken with Sir Topin Hat, and Thomas, and he got to take a ride on Thomas the Train! Caleb had fun too chillin out in his throne of a
stroller! There was a little mini train that we all went for a ride on. It was more fun that taking a ride on Thomas! They've got a pretty sweet set up going on at the Heritage Railway Museum!
After Thomas, it was off to Vancouver to visit the In Laws! Chris's aunts and uncles all live down at the coast, and we stayed with his Uncle Dale and Aunty Bev. Thanks for having us if you're reading this!! We had a good visit with his family, and we got to take Ethan to the beach for the first time! I'm not positive, but I think he might've had more fun at the beach
than he did at Thomas! We dug for clams, and flipped over rocks and found crabs and jumped in the ocean! It was a lot of fun! I'm still recovering from the whole trip, but it was definately worth it!
I can't wait until I can get my pics developed and start scrappin them!!

So I applied to be part of the Quickutz Ambassador program! You had to do a questionaire and submit a 2 page layout, so this is the one I submitted! I think it would be so fun to do something like that!! Wish Me Luck!! *fingers crossed*
