Halifax Mojo!

I'm not quite sure what it is...but every time I visit my Sweetie in Halifax lately, I seem to be able to scrap for hours and I end up coming home with a months worth of scrapping!

I just love sitting at the kitchen table scrapping, all the while interacting with Dave and the boys while they get their homework done etc.

Here are the layouts I finished Saturday night! I have one other one, but didn't get a chance to journal on it yet.... Can you tell I tend to bring scraps with a paper collection or two? tee hee (This weekend was Crate Paper's Lemon Grass Collection...love those glitter diecuts!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow! I'm quite a delinquent blogger lately! Where did the month of May go!!! Its difficult to believe June is almost upon us!

I think that most of my Scrappy pre-orders have arrived from Winter CHA 2009 (still waiting of the yummy Sassafras felties though!) and now they are coming out with new things already! I just received the Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird and October Afternoon Cherry Hill in the mail today....wow, these are even more beautiful in real life!

This weekend, my Sweetie and I cleaned out and re-organized my basement! I know, many of you probably are thinking: "Steph, why are you so excited about this?" Well, I love to organize my stuff...doing a clean sweep and starting from scratch is my favorite thing to do, especially with my scrappy supplies! My basement houses my treadmill, my computer, laundry room and my "Crafting" area (scrap, Whimsy shop and painting) and things had been piling up lately.

It began as a project to add a sink in my laundry room and just went from there! (the sink project is ongoing, but it now just need to be plumbed in) Dave re-wired my high speed internet connection so I could move my computer to another area of the basement and then he added some PEGBOARD to my scrappy area! I just lurrve pegboard and must buy more! tee hee (oh, but I lurrrrve Dave more! LOL)

My Sweetie is so supportive of my scrappy addiction...he doesn't understand it, but he supports me 100% LOL He shakes his head in bewilderment when I mention pegboard and my eyes light up a little ha! ha! Once the space is completely organized, I'll share photos :)

Now, here are a few projects I've been working on over the last month or so.....

Here are Dave and the boys play-acting at the Big Lobster in Sh├ędiac, NB....They are so silly sometimes LOL

Here is my Creative Scrappers Reveal for Sketch # 50

And my Creative Scrappers Reveal for Sketch #52

A Sweet photo of my beautiful nephew Rohan, I'm finally cutting into my Sassafras Lass stash! I love this line....reminds me of my childhood in the 70's.

This one was part of the Creative Scrappers Birthday Bash, Button challenge (how could I resist?)

Until next time!
