I need to work on my will power when it comes to scrappy stuff!! So I was looking for some different techniques to try out the other day and came across one that I think looks REALLY cool! (Shhhh!! Not going to say what it is!!) I want to try it so bad that I went ahead and ordered supplies for it (one of the few scrappy things I don't have yet!). Once I get them in and play with them/figure out what I am doing then I will post it as a Tuesday Technique/Tutorial. I also ordered an embossing pad for my big kick (something I have needed for a while - my mouse pad is too thick and it's frustrating to try and find the right thickness combo to make it work) and a mini stamp set that I thought was super cute and funny (for birthday cards). I did manage to keep my order under $40 but had to be over $35 to use the free shipping promo code. Oooooh!! I can't wait to share this technique with you!!!! Now the long unbearable wait begins!!

I can't wait to hear/see what the new technique is.

I'm hoping with having a 3 day weekend (daycare is closed on Friday) that I can get something done this weekend. I will still have Mark, but maybe when he naps. . . (crossing fingers here)

So EXCITED!!!! My Elegant Edges cartridge came in the mail today!!!! I am sooooo ready for LOAD now!!!! Got my project done for next weeks Tuesday Technique/Tutorial (and no, it's not the one I just ordered supplies for ). Almost have my Father's day cards done and worked some more on my name challenge layout from the May crop. Saw they finally have the Beep Beep Lite cartridge for sale on walmart.com......going to try and hold out till close to Christmas to get it. COME ON WILL POWER!!

My will power is terrible when it comes to scrapbooking stuff!

I only managed to finish one card last night, which means I still have three left to do..

I have been so busy with getting the basement time, my scrappy stuff is collecting dust!! I have ordered three cartridges recently, so hopefully I will be ready. I can't wait to get everything all neat and organized and take pics. It's going to be awesome!! Oh, and thanks to Kelsey, I had to order Elegant Edges . I didn't realize when I bid on it that it had already been uploaded to a Gypsy, but I don't have one, so it doesn't really matter. If I ever get one, it will the only one I can't upload, so hopefully it will be ok. I was going through some of my pages yesterday and realized I can't wait to get back into scrapping!! I haven't done anything since maybe Christmas and I miss it!!

Hope everyone gets all thier scrappy projects done!! Looking forward to seeing your new technique, Kelsey!!

Good to "see" you Amanda! I'd been wondering where you had been lately.

Chantelle - I have very little will power either with scrappy stuff.

Kelsey - the Beep Beep cart does look adorable.

I'm glad you ladies are looking forward to the LOAD. I'm getting challenges ready now & can't wait to see what we all do.

Amanda - Good to see you! I wondered where you went too. Hooray for new carts!!! LOL!!! That sucks that they sold the elegant edges cart already loaded on their gypsy. They shouldn't be able to do that. I really hate when they mark them as new and unused on ebay! Once they are on the gypsy they should be considered used!! I would hate to be them if their gypsy broke as you have to re-load all your carts when you get your replacement. (My mom just had to re-load all of hers. She had to send in for a replacement because one of the ports fell into her gypsy and she couldn't hook it up to her cricut.)

Becky - Can't wait!!

I came up with a plan for getting the beep beep cart!!! I am not doing so well with my exercising............so..........if I can keep up with my exercising and keep my house clean until the end of July then it will be my reward!! Do you think that sounds like a good plan??

That sounds like a great plan to me, Kelsey!

There's a few new carts I want, but I also want a new camera, and so far the camera is winning out..

I have a killer headache today. Almost migraine strength. Just wish it would go away.

I did see that my order from Joann's shipped today!! I also came up with a project I want to do to try out my Your Story. Shouldn't take too long to make....hopefully. I'll post it when I get it done.

Do you like the Your Story, Kelsey? I haven't had the chance to look at one up close yet. Can't wait to see what you come up with, and I hope your headache goes away!

One card finished.. just two more to go!

Wow, i can't believe i haven't posted in here yet this month. Tristan had his last day of preschool today and wouldn't participate in his concert, all the other kids were lined up along the wall and he was laying on the floor. there are some pictures up on facebook in the June album. Ryland has a field trip to the zoo tomorrow, he is excited even though it is supposed to rain. He has school all the way up to the 28th of this month, then he is off until September 1st. Richard is still working his butt off trying to keep our bills paid. I miss the time we used to spend together. nothing really new with me, i'm at the tail end of a cold still coughing but my throat isn't as sore as it was.

Robin congrats on having another little boy, how exciting.

Alycia, I also would love to see pictures of your new place, and I miss your pages too, was great to see them during the crop

Kelsey we have a Canon Powershot SX20IS and I love it, it's kind of advanced for me, i don't know how to use all the functions properly. but it takes HD video too. it is 12.1 megapixels which for me means about half my pictures are blurry but the ones that are clear are amazing, i love the color accent picture, i can choose to have a black and white picture and only 1 other color in it. so fun to play with. Before this Camera all we had was Kodak and i loved them too, but found like you they go after a few years 3 usually 5 if your lucky. I have never heard of the elegant edges cartridge. i really like it and have added it to my wish list. I think your plan for getting the beep beep cartridge sounds like a great idea

Carrie I hope your BBQ goes well and the weather cooperates for you.

Chantelle, i am happy to hear your baby shower went well. That's one thing i missed out on, i didn't get a baby shower with any of my children.

Becky that is wonderful Mark is walking. It is a lot more work when they start walking

Amanda YAY for new cartridges, i can't wait to see your pages again

Tried out my Your Story today. For only having 3 little buttons, it is kind of confusing to figure out at first (IMO). Took my about 3 times to get my project binded - actually took it all the way apart once and added more glue. I made my own cover for this project so figuring out how much glue I needed was kind of a guess. I think I had just a bit too much after I added more because it did seep out a little. Oh well, doesn't have to be perfect! It will be interesting to see how long it holds - wouldn't be a problem except my project has folded pages in it which didn't seem to want to bind quite as well. I also should have scored my pages so that they would have laid flat a little better. Just need to decorate the front of the project and add some stuff to a couple of pages then I will get it posted for everyone to see.
