Happy 1st Birthday to the Scrap Yard!!!!!!!

So they have been open since Sept 24th 2007!!!! Jan 17th we had a big crop to celebrate. Unfortunately due to some family medical reasons Lori couldn't make it..... we missed her.

The day was awesome though. Robin did an awesome job of getting all the last minute details together. You should have seen our workroom.... I think there were tables under all of the boxes but I am still not so sure.

The day was great. The Canyon Meadows community hall was awesome. Lots of natural light, there was lots of room. Lots of friends and good food, make-and-takes and games. Everyone had a great time. 12 hours flew by.

I wouldn't let them in until 10... it was really cold outside that day!!! Crazy Ladies.

Last but not least, little Tristan. I love this kid. He is sooo cute. His brother Kaleb is equally adorable!!!! I keep telling Lori M I am gonna steal them!! It didn't go over so well....

Robin had some awesome friends that same and helped out that day. Lisa, Roslynn, and Leanne were awesome and so much fun. And Robins mom Gail made all the sanwhiches again!! She is awesome!!!!!!!!!

Wish Lori could have been there for all the fun, but she was where she needed to be... we missed her sermons though..... ha ha ha.... she always makes me laugh.


I gotta get better at this.....

Ok First off..... Here are just a few of the pictures my wonderful friend Laura took of me!!! She has her own photography company, Soul Photography, and she is awesome. She is so much fun that you can just relax and goof off!!! Love her. And she did an awesome job. I am still waiting for a couple but I love these ones.

Here are my latest Beary Box layouts. Don't forget about the weekley challenge over at the blog. Joey's giving away some awesome stuff from CHA.

These are both a little dark....oh well.
I think that is all for me....for now......

This is what they call neglect....

Wow. Long time no blog. I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas. I KNOW I DID!!! It was such a fun year for me, I felt like a little kid. Wii, Nintendo DS, Sock Monkey, New OWL Purse, and so much more. It was so much fun. Lots of family and friends. That's the way to do it. Oh and not to forget the FOOD!!!! YYYYUUUUMMMMYYYYY. Everyone loved the gifts I made them, even got a tear out of moma.

I have to say it's totally bizzar not being in school right now BUT I LOVE IT!!!!! I am having so much fun spending more time at the store. I get to concentrate more on where I want to go with all of this.... speaking of that.... I should tell you all that I am not taking part in the Calgary Crop for Kids as I had previously spoken about. It is a very long and sad story but I wish them's for a great cause.

Lets see, what else is going down around here.... I am still trying to get my room all done. I just got so busy last year and let it slip. I have still been scrappin but there are things in there that need to be cleaned up from NOVEMBER!!!!!! It's looking good but it's still not clean or FINISHED!!! Lot's to do still. I am heading to Edmonton this weekend with some girlfriends and I am making a stop Urban Outfitters to stock up on some awesome decor!!!!

Here are a few of my recent Beary Box Layouts. Go check out the blog!!! They have some great designers over there.

Going through a "man color" fase........ not to worry!!! I feel some pink commin' on. Well that is all for me for now. Sorry again for the big lag......
