And the winner is...


Congratulations!!  Please PM me your address so I can send out your package.

I have to tell you guys that making this video with the boys was hi-LA-rious!!  Enzo, the one on the right, was going crazy.  He was dancing a samba kind of dance that turned into the robot and then a little bit of a booty shake.  It was sooooooo cute!!  Then he started making faces, making noises, and anything else that would just get me to laugh hysterically.  His brother, Roman, was trying to get him to be serious but it took 4 takes in order to get this one.

They pulled out Leslie's name the very first time but I couldn't use those other takes.  All you hear is me laughing until I can't breathe anymore.  So, I made them do it again, and again, and again, and again, until they were serious.  Each time they pulled out her name because I made sure to put it on the top.  That's why you don't see the shaking up of the names.  We did that in the 1st take.

Anyways,  thanks to everyone that entered :)

Cheeky Howdy Birthday Card

One of my niece's birthday was in April and she wanted me to make her a Cheeky Howdy birthday card.  I colored it waaaaaayyyyyy before her birthday but then I decided to redo my scrapbook room and I never got around to finishing it.  So, since I have the day off, I decided to wake up this morning at 5am and make the card.  So here it is...

Cheeky Howdy Easel Card
I had to bling her up.  I added rhinestones using my iTop.  I made the frame using my Creative Memories paisley punch.
  I made the flower using the paisley punch as well.
 Here's a close-up.
One last look.

Her shirt- RV04, R43, R81

Pics of my New Scrapbook Room

Sooooo, I was going to hold the May scrappy get-together at my house...that meant that I needed to update my room into a prettier room.  My room had been functional but I now needed to girly it up some...LOL.  It took a very long time and a lot of help from the hubs but it finally got done.

 One day, I hope to fill it up with PapertreyInk ribbons.
 My first MemBearship pieces from my Cherished Teddies collection.  I haven't gotten any in a while but I still hang on to them.  I still get the membearship pieces though.  One day, I will have the whole collection.  I have pieces from other countries as well.  I would call other countries to get their pieces and everything...just a little obsessed...LOL

 Homemade Clip-It-Up.  Thanks Mayra (Ivy5) for the idea and Hubby for actually constructing it.

 One day, I'll have these boxes filled with Copics...that is going to be a loooooooonnnnng time from now though...LOL

Precious Moments Sugar Town.

 More Cherished Teddies.
 Ivy and Innocence.
I really REALLY LOVE my room!!  It is sooo pretty and functional.  I am glad I got bitten by the redecorating bug.  I hope you guys enjoy my room :)
