ATC- Love Theme

It had been a while since I have done ATC cards. So in the spirit of Valentine's Day I decided to create 18 cards to share with friends and family. Some of which would be great to put on front of blank card stock. Or if you are like me just display them.

There is about 4 ATC's the my hubby helped me with. I had done card 4,5,8 and 11 already but it was lacking balance.  Hao made some suggestions and also stamped a couple of the cards to balance them out. Thanks honey! I appreciate your "mad skills". I was trying to get him to do some more but he wasn't having it. Stay tune for the mini albums. Please leave a comment and thanks for looking.

Today was a great day. My nephew David came over and we went to the Los Angeles Garment District. It was awesome. I found some great finds at unbelievable prices ( all for scrap booking and crafting). Thank you David for being patient and laughing at you uncle for eating 3 street dogs which right now left him in a food coma. And sorry for my road rage actions while sitting in the passenger seat. Dumb girl driving in a Lexus texting and driving like a drunk driver...B*$#H! She is so lucky I wasn't driving.Why do they give these person licenses. Okay I am over it on to crafting.

Day 5/6

So yesterday I tried to post my day 5 posting but I couldn't didn't have access. I will recap yesterday and today.
Yesterday was a little crazy. I went ot Target to return  a few Christmas plastic containers. Yes I said it "plastic containers". I know Hao thinks I am insane because he knows how I feel about organizing and plastic in general. Anyway I got side tracked and decided to tour the store. Although I didn't need anything except some girly items hehehe I saw these ugg type boots that I wanted for Christmas and didn't get. In the excitement I tried on only one shoe. Okay so they fit.....yippie and size 7 which we all know is very hard to find cause every woman I know wears a size 7. I proceeded to the check out and just when I thought I was in the clear I passed the $1 bins. Score! Found some Valentine goodies.Check out time.

Okay I on my way to pick up Jonathan from school. Times up. On my way home to show Hao my shoes.
Hao not home just yet so I go to put on my shoes and you are not going to believe what happened next. The shoes were 2 leftys.........uh I am fuming! Too good to be true. Now I am sad. now back to Target I go. Well no more size 7 at the 1st Target or the 2nd but........third is a charm...score! they had my size it was meant to be. All is right in the world.

Now for todays events. Morning going smoothly other the monthly visit from Mother Nature....You ladies know what I am talking about. Got to spend morning coffee with Hao. Coffee Good! Off I go pick up Joanthan. Not so good. He is sad can't find his sweater panic is occurring. He telling me he will be so much trouble if he doesn't find his sweater. Around, around we go through lost and found and the playground. There is light the sweater lives. On we go. He is begging me to call his mom so that he can play is Xbox.....not until all his homework is done. Mission accomplished. All is right in the world again.

Home is where I am at sitting with Howie watching WEC( cage fighting) oh what fun. I am trying to motivate myself to get my Valentine's projects done but don't have the energy. Mother Nature is calling in her monthly bill.
Till tomorrow happy scrapping or whatever things you are into.

Today is my nephew birthday. Happy Birthday David if you are keeping up with my blog. I love you and I hope your day is filled with joy and happiness.

I ventured out today on a mission to get some Valentine's Day scrapping items. Although one of my local craft stores didn't have a sale it still gave me some inspiration to try and create my own embellishments. When it comes to scrap booking I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would be this involved . So much product and ssssssssssssssssoooooooooooooooooo expensive.

I don't know if any of you know this or are interested but my husband does marketing for his company. Since he does marketing for a living I turn to him to bounce ideas. So by the end of week I am going complete one of my sample Valentine pieces in which he has inspired me to create.

Okay so I am watching Mario Lopez on VH1 with Hao. Mario Lopez has come a long way from "Save by the Bell. Anyway I was happy to see Howie home at a reasonable hour. I really missed him today. I can't believe that Hao has not wanted to change the channel. I have to give him props  that he is not a control freak when it comes to the remote. He just goes with the flow. 10 Years with being with this man and he a still compassionate and loving person as to the day I met him.

Well enough of this mushy stuff. On to the showcase of the final holiday pop outs. Thank you Honey for fixing my pictures. I am sad that I didn't get pictures of all the books that I had done.

Hope everyone likes them.
