1st SMASH page

Here is my very first page in my SMASH book. I think that I could get used to this. It is so much fun to put little things on the pages in random order. I could see me making many albums in various themes. This first page was a favorites page (RPBC and my BFF Heather) and a random stuff page. At least each page has purple somewhere on it. That is a must for this book in my word. I think there will be more to add to them as time goes on but it is at least a start.

I was introduced to this newest form of scrapping by my "Twin", Heather. The kids gave me a book for Valentines Day and I can't wait to start smashing!

Birthday Makeover

For my daughter's 10th birthday I decided to give her a bedroom makeover. She has had the same Hello Kitty theme since we moved here when she was 3. She is ready for something more "Tween" style. This was a complete surprise for her. I started Friday night with clearing out the room, taking down wallpaper, and taping the trim. I painted the walls based on a color from the new bedding and hand painted the circles and dots. New Bedding and curtains completed the makeover. I was able to reuse much of her existing furniture. I finished up just a few minutes before she came home on Sunday. She was completely surprised and LOVED the room.

I am truly addicted to "House". I really enjoy watching this show and I own seasons 1-5 on DVD. I watch the reruns on TV at night and when its not on TV I will pop in the DVD's. I do think Hugh Laurie has a certain sexy appeal. Call me crazy! The kids have learned that when House is is watching and don't interrupt a new may be hazardous to their health,HE HE HE.

Confessions of an Absent Scrapper

It has been months since I have been able to spend real time at the scrap booking desk. Last Saturday I finally got a chance , well stole the time really, to play again,. There were plenty of other things I could have been, should have been doing. I finally decided that the chores will be there later and I needed some scrap therapy. It's not that I haven't been looking at scrappy stuff, reading my scrappy mags or thinking scrap booking, I have. I have been "collecting" little bits and pieces of scrappy goodness since before the trip to Texas. I finally sat down to organize them and play. It took me all of the Morning and part of the afternoon Saturday just to clean the space up so Mojo would come out to play. I have determined that Mojo is OCD and won't play in scrappy land if there is a mess around. So once things were clean, I spent a few more hours looking through and sorting pics so I could decide what to do. Mojo finally got rolling about 9PM. Wonderful, I'm ready for bed and she wants to play. Well, I finished 2 layouts before finally giving in to sleep. Sunday Mojo had run away. I decided to finish my son's Cub Scout album. Now that he has moved up to Boy Scouts there is a clear end to this album. I managed a few pages for the album. Mostly going back and filling in things I missed. I now only have the last year to complete and I can finally call something finished. Seriously, I have this disorder that is inherited from my mom. I call it Unfinished-itis, I have several projects that I have either started and not finished or worse, purchased the items for and not started. I keep telling myself that one day I'll be caught up. Life might be boring if that were true. So I call this weekend a success because I did get back to scrappyland but time will tell if I can keep up.

I was looking around at my blog and realized that even though I am obsessed with scrapbooking and the title of the blog is Scrap Happy, I don't have any LO's displayed here. SoI thought I would share a few. I will try to get better about sharing them here as well as on my gallery. Enjoy!
