SIF Blog hop winner!!!

So it is time for me to announce a winner...I know..but before I do I just have to say weren't all those canvases simply fantastic? I mean hello could they be any more diverse than they were already?  Holy moly? I couldn't even have imagened them any different...amazing is what I can only come up with.

I myself went with the Rock star edge...but for me that isn't any thing  more than typical I mean..I think music. I love music and I am kind of a geek about it so...there. TYPICAL....

Anyway with further adieu....the winner of my little ol' blog hop is....

Who Do I love?

Umm Who Do I love these days?  Well umm so.... many people. Of course my family..that goes without saying. But let me tell you who is on my list BIG TIME!
First of all  I got a special little gift in the mail a week or so ago...well it wasn't really for me, it was for Adam.  It was from my new friend Julie. Do I love her. UMM Yes big time. Why?  Look at this and you tell me..do I need to explain?
I think not!
Now Let me tell you who else makes my heart soar.  That would be the little one holding this beautiful frame. Want to know why? Because this year was the first time I really explained in depth to him about his autism. I explained to him that he had somehting called Asperger's Syndrome and that although it gave him certain challenges, epecially in social situations, that it also gave him his gift of amazing intelligence, his ability to problem solve, compute numbers quickly, construct things with ease etc. I told him that really he was kind of lucky,but that there were othe children with autism that really sturggled and that he had really been blessed.  I told him that we would be walking again for Autism Speaks to raise $ to help find a cure and he said, "but Mom, I don't want to cure my Autism".  Now if you know where we came from and the strides that we have made from then until now, that would have really melted your heart.  Know what, I don't want to change my little boy either, he is so perfect the way that he is,but I do want to give him the tools that he needs to survive soicially.  I am so proud of him!  I love that he loves and accepts himself the way that he does...his words and this frame that Julie made, inspired this layout. 
What a cool kid!  I just love him oodles and I love his Autism too!
Okay now let me tell you who else I love!!!  I love SCRAPPY NAN...from the ZUTTER ZIZTERS..yep I met up with her the other day and she gave me some very nice prizes to  give away at my crop to benefit Autism Speaks!  Yep She Rocks just a little bit.  Thank you Nan for your support!

But wait there's more!  I love FISKARS TOO!  I had no idea they were sponsoring the crop and on Wednesday there was a rap at my door and then someone ran away, which kind of startled me, then a white van took off which starled me a bit more.  What I learned is that Fiskars uses FEDEX,thus the white van.  They dropped off a BIG BOX with a pretty PRICEY gift which just might have to be a grand prize.uh huh...it is top secret for now!  I love you too FISKARS.  Let's just say...when someone wins this prize..they may be 'tuning the rest of the croppers out" for the rest of the day. Enough said!

And Lastly, I am spreading the love to..LITTLE YELLOW BICYCLE..thank you  for sending some goodies my way for the crop as well. Oh...so pretty. I love your papers and I wish that I could keep them for myself, but that would be just wrong!  Ugh!  Thank you so much for your generosity.

Thanks to everyone for showing their love and support, now I am all a'flutter!

IF you want to know more about the crop check out all the info here.

So my little Adam turned 8 last week.  He shares a birthday with my brother and as I learned a lot of other new friend's sons as well.  Anyway we had his birthday party at the gym where he attends gymnastics.  The kids had a blast! And yes that is my 8 year old up on the rings by himself..he can lift his weight and hold it, then flip over.  A little bit scary to me!
Así que mi Adam poco se convirtió 8 semana pasada. Él comparte cumpleaños con mi hermano y como he aprendido mucho de los hijos de nuevo amigo del otro también. De todas formas hemos tenido su fiesta de cumpleaños en el gimnasio donde asiste a la gimnasia. Los niños tenían una explosión! Y sí que es mi hijo de 8 años de edad, hasta en los anillos por él mismo .. puede levantar su peso y mantenerlo, y luego la vuelta. Un poco de miedo a mí!
In Other news, to celebrate National Craft Month, Scrap It Forward has a new challenge up!  We are looking for two Guest Desginers for a 3 month run.  The challenge is simple..make someting for someone and share your craftiness...you never know it could get you a spot as a Guest DT member!  So go over to our blog and learn all about it!  You could be the next desginer!

Wow..I can't beleive it. Wow! No puedo creerlo!

Remember my last post? The one about choosing layouts. The one about not knowing what is the best choice and worrying about it? Well I guess I made the right choice because..... I made the Kiki Art Spanish/DT!!! Yes me, I did it..can you believe it. I learned Spanish long ago to help me with my teaching, to reach children of my community, who would have ever thought that it would also bring something like a Manufacturer DT to my door. Wow! I feel so very blessed and excited. As you may know I am always continuing to learn more about the language, to improve my speaking/writing abilities and what a fun way to do it! Thank you Arantza (Kiki) for having faith in me! I cannot wait to get started! Now I will be writing my blog entires in two languages.
Recordar mi último post? El único sobre la elección de diseños. El no saber cuál es la mejor opción y preocuparse por ella? Bueno, supongo que hice la elección correcta, porque ..... Hice el arte español Kiki / DT. Sí me lo hice . .. ¿puedes creerlo. Aprendí el español hace tiempo que me ayude con mi enseñanza, llegar a los niños de mi comunidad, que lo iba a pensar que también generaría algo así como un fabricante de DT a mi puerta. ¡Wow! Me siento muy bendecido y emocionado. Como ustedes saben yo soy siempre continuar aprendiendo más sobre el lenguaje, para mejorar mi oral y escrito habilidades y lo que es una manera divertida de hacerlo! Gracias Arantza (Kiki) por tener fe en mí! No puedo esperar para empezar! Ahora voy a escribir mis entradas de blog en dos idiomas

I have to say that this has been a great scrappy week. I also won on Sarah De Guzman's blog. So thanks to all of you who went over there and told her that I sent you! Hopefully someone that I sent over won too?! Lucky me and thanks friends!
Tengo que decir que esta ha sido una semana muy "scrap happy". También gané en el blog de Sarah De Guzmán. Así que gracias a todos ustedes que se fueron para allá y le dije que me envió! Espero que alguien me envía a través ganó también!

Lastly, you should all go over to "Sketcy Thursdays" and check out their sketch. I entered again for the whole fun of it. We will see where it goes,but regardless I love that site. It is so "sketch friendly" and inspiring. Go give it a try. Here is my layout.Por último, todos ustedes deberían ir a "Sketchy Thursdays" y echa un vistazo a su dibujo. Entré de nuevo por toda la diversión de ella. Vamos a ver a dónde va, pero adoro a ese sitio. Es tan "sketch friendly" y fuente de inspiración. Ir darle una oportunidad. Aquí está mi diseño

So for now, I am off until I have something fun to share :0) Thanks for all of you who always stick behind me! This is a great week and I am smiling from ear to ear!
Así que por ahora, me voy hasta que tenga algo divertido para compartir: 0) Gracias por todos los que siempre se mantienen detrás de mí! Esta es una gran semana y estoy sonriendo de oreja a oreja!!

How do you know which is the right choice?

So I just applied to a fab scrapbooking paper company for their DT . Do you ever fret about which layouts and/or projects to send in. Ugh...I do. So I tried to show a little bit of everything,but who knows. I have been scrapping a little more than usual lately. Perhaps because I am trying to spend as much time as I can with a special friend who needs it right now. Hugs to her in this tough time.

Here are a few new layouts to share in this mini post of mine.






In other news, I was t...h...i...s close to being guest DT for Sketchy Thursdays. Last time that I checked I was in 2nd place and then I went to bed ;0) Melissa won first place and..she very much deserved it. I was so flattered and excited to find out that I was in the top five to being with! Perhaps in the next few challenges..I will take another stab at it.
For now, I want to just say, I am so thankful for my dear friends. I love them and am so glad to have them in my life. Nothing big is going on, I just felt like right now was a good time to say it..so..MUAH. You know who you people are!

Goodnight!

It has been a good scrappy week!

Oh for scrappy's sake it has been a good week! First I won a RAK on Pinky's Blog. She is on the Imaginisce DT and had some fun Imaginisce goodies up for a rak and yay me, I won!
Look at these goodies~

Next, I have been fortunate enough to be chosen in the top 5 at Sketchy Thursday's which just happens to be quite the cool blog with sketch challenges. This past sketch had an 80's them and looks like this:
So, this is what I came up with:
See and all these people thought that my ridiculous undying devotion to Duran Duran has gotten me nowhere...hmmph! I showed them ;0)

So if you haven't gotten over to vote...go go go. I would appreciate it! Go here!

Oh how sweet it is!

Hey friends out there had the best Valentine's day ever. It wasn't a romantic day,but it was a fun filled family day and I loved it. It started with making the kiddos Heart shapped chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast. They loved that of course! Some of the chips were candy coated so that kind of made a pink hue to the pancakes. That's okay...they were happy!


Soon after breakfast we went on a family bike ride and then took Little Leila for a walk. Adam apparently didn't get the memo on it being a leisurely ride...he took off at warp speed because he needed to be "the leader". That kid...sweet,but very competitive. All in all, still a great ride.

We then ran off to Sam's b-day party. She was dressed as the prettiest princess in Placentia. Wish I got a pic,but I be that you can find them on Illyse's blog!
Later we went out to eat with another family. We went to Teppanyaki. The boys loved it! The cook even flipped rice at them to catch in their mouths.

Here are a few pics with our friends we went to dinner with and their kiddos!

Lastly to wrap up the valentine's day hoopla, the boys and my hubby gave me roses and my little ones also wrote me poems. Lucky me. They were really sweet! Although Nicholas did title his ROSES ARE DEAD, VIOLETS ARE POOP.Boys...what more can I say....

So up the scrappy/crafty part of my life I want to mention that there is a new challenge up at Scrap it Forward! It is an easy one to commit too and will help those in need. All for free...did I mention a prize is involved? Go check it out!
Here is the layout that I did for the challnege on SIF !

And here is a layout that just makes me happy when I look at it. :0) Sweet little Adam likes to cook! So I gave my Chef's hat from CHA.

Oh and... good news! My annual crop to benefit Autism Speaks is scheduled for April 17th at the Scrapbook Oasis, so save the date. Details to come!!

Lastly want to win one cool RAK...a Gift certificate to the scrapbook store of your choice...well go see Sarah at Red Oak lines and tell her Christine/scrappygal sent you by the way! 1. All you have to do is comment to her post saying, “Sarah needs to be at 50,000!” This is open until she is at 50,000 views. Once she reaches 50,000 views, she'll draw TWO WINNERS to receive gift certificates to their choice to any scrapbook store.

2. For an additional chance to win, share this post on your blog, facebook, twitter, forum, etc.

3. …and a THIRD WINNER will be chosen. The person that can direct the most people to her blog will win a stash worth over $50 in scrapbooking products! How will she know who sent who? Well, they have to make sure they leave a comment telling her who sent them her way.

ex. Sarah needs to be at 50,000. Jane Doe sent me!


So I guess that is it for now..But I did want to give a shout out to my new Scrappy, Kodak lovin', NY girl. Small world Julie..just crazy. I have more details to share with you!.

Like a broken record...

Umm yep..here I go again with the excuses. Yet again I am here trying to excuse myself for not being updated on my blog. Perhaps in 2010 I will keep up? You still love me anyway right?

Gosh so much has happened. I believe an entire season has passed. I have so many things to share..so many pics..so much of everything,but that would take forever so I will just share a bit from the last few weeks and leave it at that. ;0)

So let's start with this past week..WOOHOO CHA BABY! I had a ball. I love every moment of it and once it ends, I have a little empty spot..is it really all over?
It is so inspiring and it always revs me up to start things going. I was fortunate enough to meet so many beautiful people from all over the world..even Ecuador. I even have a new pen pal. I made a lot of contacts for our up coming crop to benefit Autism Speaks. AND I got a whole heck of a lot of fun pics! Here we go.....

Umm Hello MAKING MEMORIES...I LOVE YOU! I was a wiener yet again this year and so was Illyse. How fab is that? Thank you thank you! You are so amazingly generous!
What a way for us to end the show!

And Teresa Collin's booth..simply amazing! Always beautiful and love the new lines. Teresa is so sweet that she makes it all the more appealing!


I was able to spend the first day of the show with a good amount of my friends which makes it all the more fun! Here are a few pics of us having fun!


I also met a few new friends Like Kim and KIKI and Julie!
Kiki is the creator of Kiki Art and she is an amazing woman. Not only is she talented,but she is warm and giving. I know that we will remain friends. Love that chica. Check her out! Here is a link to giveaway to all good stuff KIKI ART. Check it out for a chance to win http://redoaklines.com/2010/01/26/kiki-art-giveaway/

Kim manages the DT at Dixie Pieces and she is the nicest gal. She spotted me on the floor the first day. Then later that day I spotted Sherry and Brenna the owners of DP. I met a whole group of great gals and I wish I had taken my pic with all of them as well! Next time I guess.


Julie is the creator of a blog called a These are a few of my favorite things. She is a fun chickadee and very creative. Her blog is fab and you must check it out!
I also met a lot of great people including the owners of The Robin's nest. They were kind enough to let us alter their CHA Badges using their products and they donated a entire bus load of papers and dew drops to our crop for Autism Speaks. They certainly ROCK!

Lastly, I believe that I have a good chance to become the next spokes model for Therm-o-web. What do you think?



In other news we have a new challenge up at Scrap It Forward with prizes of course! Here is the layout that I created for it ;0)

and here is the original photo before I er umm altered it.....judging from the bags under my eyes that day, I think that it was an improvement. Anyway please come by and check out the challenge :0) http://scrapitforward.blogspot.com

And just to leave a little bit of my latest crafty bits..here ya go!




Okay skip skip..needle is scratching..I am picking it up and starting again. No more broken record. Here I am bloggers. I updated!
