TGF Merry Merry Kit - LO #4

Sorry, no time to write much so here's my TGF LO! Simple, simple, simple! LOL Next month I will be using the new kit called Dirty Sugar, it's so cute and perfect for birthday LOs! As always thanks for stopping by!

Oooh, I wanna show my fellow Twilight fans these cool scrapbook papers that my girl Margarita got me. Isn't she the best?

And before I forget I wanna answer Michelle's question regarding the Halloween pails - I got them from Walmart. Those were bought on the mainland, however I bought a couple last year at the WalMart in Pearl City. My WalMart isn't selling them this year. Hopefully you're WalMart will have them. Good luck!!

Oh yeah one more question from Linda - I believe Marie is going to have Ebony for sale, just not sure when, if it'll be rubber or digi. As soon as I find out, I'll post on my blog.

And on a last note...please forgive me for not visiting or commenting on your blog. I promise when I have time I will!

It's Alice!

I was so excited when I found out I had won this cute image from TGF! I was visiting the TGF blog read everything, even noticed names/usernames on the post but never realized I was one of them! It wasn't until I got the daily blog updates in my inbox that I noticed my username. You can imagine me jumping up and down with excitement and disbelief that I actually won. Wowzer! Anyhow, yesterday was a bit chaotic. I didn't go to bed the night before...ended up sleeping at 5AM and no, not cause I was up working on craft fair stuff, but just reading a book. By the time I decided to put the book down, I called my bff in DC because I knew had I called her later in the day it would have been too late. Needless to say, I woke up at 10! What a waste of the morning! Tuesdays are usually my errand days and since I've wasted the morning I figured the only thing I really could do was to go to the Commissary. Of course by the time I got back, put all the groceries away, clean up a bit, shower and start on dinner 3/4 of the day had gone. Figured after dinner I'd start working again, but then I decided to watch the Orphan. Wow, didn't see that coming! It was interesting, not the greatest movie nor was it bad.

OK, enough of my rambling, since it was so late to get back to work I wanted to make a card (just to make, craft for fun for once) using this new image that only 4 or 5 of us has. Alice is my favorite vampire and so glad I had the chance to play with her! Are you still reading, did I lose you? LOL! All's the card, stoled the LO from Amy of A thousand Sheets of Paper. Didn't have time to do the blending stuff w/copics so no comments on that! haha! TFL!

Goodies from Mindy!!! Woohoo!

Check out this loot! LOL! Mindy sent me all these! Can you believe it? These are all of her creations! I know we're all used to seeing her digital stuff online, but did you know a lot of her digital creations have been turned into traditional scrapbooking supplies? For those that don't recognize it in the store (since it's not normally under her name, usually the Scrapbooking Companies) you should try looking...she worked with Imagincse, MME, Bo Bunny, Autumn Leaves and A2Z Essentials to name a few. Some have her name on it but others don't. One line I know all of you crafters will definitely recognize but not know is her, is her Fairest of them All kit manufactured by Imaginsce. Sadly Imaginisce is no longer printing them. (*o*) Just love that line. I have to say that has to be by far my most favorite of all her kits. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE ALL HER KITS...but that by far is number one on my list! LOL! Anyhow, here is what she sent me. Look to the near future, I will be giving these away as blog candy (don't quote all depends on time for me). I'm thinking maybe in January since I'm so busy right now and I'll be going back to Japan for a couple of weeks then of course it'll be Christmas and New yeah, keep a look out for it around Jan/Feb timeframe! OK now that you know she does traditional scrapbooking kits, check it out the next time you're at a Scrapbooking store! Aloha!

Halloween Thank You RAKs

OK, I'm still on the notebook...I think tonight maybe the last night of making these suckers...LOL! I may make some later this week, but for the majority of it, I'm done! I'm pretty sure you guys are tired of them and since I haven't made anything other than those, I'm posting a few RAKs I made the Vet back in VA. I made them these pails full of nugget candies as a Thank You for taking care of Avery. DH and had to go to Rhode Island for dh's classes and we needed to checkout of housing, unfortunately we couldn't take Avery with us so we had to leave him at his Vets. I wanted to give them something as a thank you and good bye present so this is what I made. Thanks for stopping by! Aloha!

Christmas @ Tokyo Disney

Last Dec M and I were in Japan for M's work and as usual, I tagged along! We went to Tokyo Disney because dh's mission is to go to ALL the Disney's! Crazy if you ask me! LOL! Anyhow, it was decorated in Christmas theme so you totally felt the Holiday Spirit. In fact, that was probably the only place M felt the holiday spirit. LOL! Japanese people don't really celebrate Christmas. Anyhow, it was Disney's 25th year in Japan...can you believe I was there opening day 25 years ago? Wowzer! Anyhow here's my LO:

Hello Kitty Birthday Calendar Book

Got this idea from PTI. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one. I alter mine a tad bit. Had I gone w/the their idea, I would have used too many CS as I would like. Not sure if I'll be making these for the Craft Fair but wanted to try it. TFL!

Everyday Basics by Mindy Terasawa and a New Stamp Designer!

Sorry, no creations folks! I've had a migraine this weekend and was busy making stuff for my craft fair. Here's some new paper packs available at DD. Check them out! I just love all the colors!!!!

I'd like to answer a few questions that were asked;

1. I got the Hello Kitty image on the web.
2. Sweeties are on a hold right now. Tryin' to make them line art is taking forever...when you delete a certain line it alters the next so I want them to be perfect. Right now I'm extremely busy so I'm looking at starting them back up around beginning of next year. I promise I'll make a huge announcement as soon as at least one goes into production! Thanks so much for your patient!
Did I miss a question? If so, please either leave a comment or email me directly.

And next I am so happy that Amy from A thousand sheets of paper is now designing rubber stamps!!!! She is such a talented artist, I love how she alters images...especially the TGF ones and now she's creating her own line! She has some blog candy so please stop by and give her some love! Here's what's up for grabs:

Another Digi Invite

Seriously haven't had time to create for fun or for me...oh well! Nice to be busy and racking in some extra mula (^o^) LOL! Made this invite for my friend back home...same person I did the baby announcement and change of address. This is of her dd (!). Its a Hello Kitty themed party. I personally don't like saturating the invite w/all kinds of graphics. I feel it takes away from the main purpose. Again, another simple card. I'm not sure she'll go for it so this may not be the final invite. I personally like it...hahaha! And believe me, I don't normally like everything I create.

Here's my digi LO for TGF. It's a bit sad (at least for me it is)...but I wanted to make it can't always scrap happy memories...all apart of life. Anyhow this is of my beloved Avery whom we lost the summer of 08 and I have yet gotten over it. Really miss him, there's definitely a huge hole missing in my heart. I tell you, if you've never owned a dog, you truly are missing out. They're always soooo happy to see you walk through the doors, they're always by your side, no matter how mad you get at them, they love you unconditionally. Sigh...I'm gonna end it here or else I'll be crying my eyes out! Just like I did last Saturday when there was nothing on TV but Marley and Me, just got done tellin' the ladies at the get together I was not gonna watch it, I did and ended up crying my eyes out. Anyhow, TFL!

Here is the preview of the TGF Merry Merry Kit:

Please check out my fellow TGF digi girls:


OK, I had someone ask me what paper I used on my Witch Anya card...both DP were from Doodlebug. Got it from Photocrafts. Email me if you need any more info (^o^)

Happy Hallowen from Witch Anya!

I hope you're not tired of seeing Halloween projects on my blog, cause I'll be showcasing a few more before Halloween! I just love this day and love creating anything Halloween. So this card I made was inspired by Amy...basically almost lifted her Witch Anya...I had planned on creating one before I saw her's but you know what, her's was so cute, I just had to lift it! I'm sure you'll agree when you click on her link! She's definitely one talented artist!!! Anyhow, here's my card...TFL!

On a side note...I won't be doing my montly blogwear giveaways for a while. Like I mentioned in my earlier post, I am super busy. I'll start it back up beginning of the new year! Sorry! Please be patient with me! Mahalo!

New Moon Birthday Party!!!

My niece like everyone I know (OK, mostly everyone I know) is into the whole Twilight Saga! But believe it or not, she's on Team Jacob! (GASP!) LOL! Her bday is this month and asked me to do her invites. I of course did it digitally since it's quicker for me and cost effective for everyone all around! So here's what I came up with...I know she loves it already since she's already told me...LOL! Sorry short post, been VERY busy and I haven't had time to stamp (@o@) I so miss it! Since this month is extremely busy for me I may not be posting as much so please be patient with me (^o^). Anyhow, TFL!
