I finished this layout yesterday. All of it was from Just Cre8 March 09 kit...except I used Glimmermist on the keys and the lock. I wrote UN by the lock...but it is hard to see. This layout was inspired by two things...1. a fight between me and Dennis...long story but the short of it is he went out Friday night without calling to let me know that he was going out...how rude! and the 2nd is the Letters to Scrap By challenge to use the colour magenta. So the upside to the fight is it produced a layout about me again! HAHA
Last Saturday I took Jacie and Danika and us girls went shopping all day. We ended by going to the movie "the race to witch mountain". I was so nervous taking Danika but thankfully she did really well. It was so loud though, but she was good sitting in my lap and she actually fell asleep for a bit. It was nice to spend the day with my daughters! We will have to do that again soon.

I am trying to find a long stapler so that I can staple up to 6 inches on every side. I can only find standard sizes...anyone know where I can find the longer ones???
On Saturday we had our Stampin' Up! club where we decorated plain metal boxes into recipe boxes. I am happy with the way it turned out and glad we did it. I just have to finish up the inside...when I do, I will post pictures.

Kael has a cold -just came yesterday-so he is a little 'glazy' due to the nose running. Danika is sleeping like crazy today...will have to wake her up after this to feed her...she's been down for over 4 hours...don't know if it is a growth spurt or if she is fighting off something.
I did this layout for a sketch challenge over at Pencil Lines. This is my first time over at that site, and I like it!! I used everything from a kit from Just Cre8. I am not sure which month it is from though.
I really liked the way it turned out and that is was on me for a change. This is my first layout on me and it is important to have these ones to leave my legacy and who I am for the kids. I will be doing more of these!
The flower used to be white and I used Glimmer Mist to change the colour to blue and finished it off with spraying it with the colour graphite (for extra sparkle).
If you try this recipe please let me know how it turned out!! I have been dying to try it...but have no vanilla ice cream...when I get some though I am trying it!!!
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world ? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time. the day or night!

The layout I did used some glittermist on the May circle and the chipboard corner that I turned by the title. I used a new technique, to me, which I ripped out a page in my old school dictionary (felt totally wrong when I did it), applied Gesso to it and let it dry. Then I stamped on it and drew a rectangle around the word Play and sport. This technique I will be using more and more!
