October is Here.....

I know I know I am a very bad blogger.... I should have posted before now lol. Well all I can say is October is a crazy month for me. I started a new job and it's day shift I am not use to working day shift. I come home around 4 pm and all I want to do is sleep.

Also on October 12th we marked the 8th anniversary of my mother's passing. It was a quiet day for me I spent it in reflection thinking about my mom...

Also I have a couple of layouts to show you that I made with my DT kit from Jessica at Scraptastic Club. This month I got to play with Nightmare On My Street Kit. Let me tell you it is packed with Halloweeny goodness yummy. You need to run not walk over to and get your self one of these kits before they are all gone. She still has some kits from last month as well if you want one of them as well..

Okay here are 2 of my projects so far.

That's all fopr today i will back soon with more

Soupy Saturday

I don't know about you all but here where I am it's raining again.. Sigh.. I am getting sick of the rain, I wanted to do a total house cleaning today but it's a little hard when I have 3 boys underfoot. I want to send them outside but that won't happen today lol..

So instead I am going to clean my basement lol what fun that will be...

I'm waiting for my October kit from Scraptastic Club so i can work on my DT projects, I haven't pulled any pictures yet because I don't know which kit I will be getting hehehe it's so exciting. I'm like a kid in a candy store... I hope it arrives on Monday so I can get to work on some projects.

October is a hard month for me it marks to sad anniversaries for me first the death of my mother she was 52 years old when she died it will be 8 years this year, I was 7 months pregnant when she died on our Thanksgiving ( Canadian) and it was a few years before I would celebrate that holliday again. Now that I have 3 little boys at home under the age of 10 I started celebrating for them because they asked me to.

The second anniversary and the hardest for me is of my beloved son Alexander he would have been 18 years old this year and on October 29 it will be 5 years since he took his own life at the age of 13. I do not tell people this wanting their sympathy I tell them to make them aware that this is happening to our children and we need to do something about it. So the next time you want to donate to a charity or something think about something like the kids help phone line or a suicide hotline, you never know you may save a life.

Well I am done with my ranting for now. I need to go do some cleaning and get some medication for this blasted cold I have ughh I feel I'm walking around in a fog yuck

Till Next time have a good onbe

Wow look what happens when

You go out and get a new computer ... You can access your blog lol.. My old comp doesn't seem to like blogspot I guess because it wouldn't let me access my blog at all so i went to wordpress and made a new blog. I am so glad I am able to access my old blog again. Phew.....

Been feeling rather naked without being able to access my blog and post wow. I was worried because I applied to a few DT's and not being able to access my blog was a major bummer, I was thinking how would i post my projects and other stuff really it was a royal pain. But now that's all behind me yeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw.

So onto some news I guess.. I quit my call center job i had enough of being lied to I was promised benefits after 3 months and guess what it didn't happen. Was told once I hit the floor i would be making about 11 bux an hour... Didn't happen so I was lied to again. Well they said I would get benefits almost after 8 months I said it wasn't good enouhg so I quit. Now I am working somewhere else where I have it in writing that I will get benefits after 3 months...

Here are some new layouts

Some layouts I have done recently have fun let me lnow what you think

Here is my spritzed layout Sweet boy using TA glimmer mist and Kiki Art papers

And my beautiful Kitty Muffassa

the journalling on Muffassa's layout reads

Muffassa is a very special boy to me I chose him for my subject of the scraplift this week. Muffassa is 15 years old and still acts like a kitten.. The journalling reads

A Pets Prayer
If it should be, that I grow frail and weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then, you must do what must be done
For this, the last battle, can't be won.
Don't let your grief stay your hand,

For this day more than the rest,
Your love and friendship stand the test.
We've had so many years,
What is to come can hold no fear.
You'd not want me to suffer, so
When the time comes, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me to the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you'll see it is a kindness you do for me
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Don't grieve it should be you who this thing decides to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years,
Don't let your heart hold tears.

Challenge # 4 Tic Tac Toe

Our next challenge (#4) will be based on the game Tic-Tac-Toe. What each entrant will do is pick three things from this sketch to make a tic-tac-toe (or three-in-a-row).

For example, I might make a scrap page that has the following three items to get my tic-tac-toe/three-in-a-row: a charm, some sort of punch (heart, leaves, etc.) and stitching (can be real or faux). Or, I could place dew drops, bling and stitching to achieve the tic-tac-toe. Get it?

Well here is my card

Week # 3 New Sketch

This week we were challenged to do a card based on our DT Fink's sketch so here is what I came up with.
Fink is our beautiful hostess this week and she has provided us with a challenge - a sketch, one made by her darling daughter, Taylor. I see talent runs in the family - how cool is that? As you can see, it's a real easy sketch and I imagine that you can do some real sweet things with this one too! Flip it, turn it, just keep the original idea there so we can tell it is close to the original *hehee*.

The design team had fun with this sketch because they are so talented. Check us out:

Here is mine

Make sure you head on over to
