Entrevue Lumière (Light Interview) on Scrapbook Laurentides which is a Boutique, Blog and Forum here in the province of Québec. I was extremely honored to be asked as a lot of my fave Québecoise scrappers hang out there. I think you all know that I'm truly a scrapper at heart. : )
J'aimerais dire un gros MERCI à Maryse Dupuis! Elle est une scrappeuse extraordinaire et super fine en plus!
Head over and check it out if you have some time today. It has been translated from English to French but the English part is still there.
AND, if you can...go check out some of the gorgeous photos that my friend Manon Dufour took last weekend of me and my kids. There's more to come but she knows I'm impatient so she gave me an avant goût! Ske-doosh.

Welcome to the Control Freaks May Blog Tour!!! Our theme this month is the schnazzy new Summer Mini Catalogue. You've probably just arrived from Ilina Crouse's blog, My Creations. Seriously? Did you SEE that Sweet Scoops box??! She rocks, fo' sho'! If you haven't arrived from Ilina's blog, never fear! The tour does a full circle so you'll be able to see all the projects that these freaky freaks have laid out for you!
On with the squareheaded freak show!
I have to apologize for the glare on this project. Uhhh...it's the wind's fault? Ahem. Moving on...this page started out as a 8 1/2" x 11" scrapbook layout. The my youngest son, Skyler, decided that taking a pen and scribbling on the upper left hand corner of the layout is *exactly* what it needed. Sigh. Chop, snip, paste and VOILÀ! A pretty frame to hang in my entry to celebrate summer!!! Thanks Skyler!! LOL!
I hope you've enjoyed my projects for this month! Keep on clicking through the tour to head on over to Dannie Grave's blog and leave these freaks some LOVE!!! Ske-doosh.

I found this awesome tutorial on the Scorpal website. It's very well done! I didn't have business sized envelopes so I used the 3.5 x 5 note card envies for it. For some reason, I always have a tonne of the envelopes left over...what am I doing with the notecards?? Huh. ANYHOO, check out the tute and have fun!!! Ske-doosh.

This is the last page from my scrap weekend and it's unfinished. I still have to put a title on it. What do you guys think of Mushroom Muscles? I dunno. Can't decide. I'm slowly getting things back in order at my house after having been away for a week. Not that Phil doesn't take care of bid-ness while I'm gone, but I feel like I've got laundry up to my ears. I just want to stamp and scrap and I can't get downstairs. Worse yet, I can't sleep. I lie there trying to sleep and it ain't happening. I think I'll drug myself with some Gravol tonight. ; ) Hopefully I'll have something to share with you guys this week. Ske-doosh.

This is one of my fave pages of the scrap weekend. It's rare that we use such large photos on a layout but I think it works really well on the page. It helps that Skyler is mega cute, eh? So, I'm back at home after a week in Calgary. I'm very tired from travelling so I think I'll head to bed early tonight. Or maybe I'll scrap a page...or two...; ) I took some very funny shots of my big bro while he was bbq-ing. Stay tuned. Ske-doosh.

It seems like I've really been on a Skyler roll lately, eh? This was one of the challenge pages I did at my scrap weekend. I needed a rub-on, three different kinds of ribbon, a decorative pin, chipboard, a number, and a birdy. Kinda cool page, eh?
We had a lazy day here at Aunty Sandy's. Hung out, watched movies, watched Ziggy the bearded dragon drop a deuce. You know, fun stuff? Sky is missing Papa and Logan today. Me too. Ske-doosh.

This is the face I'm dealing with since we arrived in Calgary. Poor Skyler is a bit out of sorts. He's away from Papa and Logan and around a bunch of new people that all speak English. I'm taking deep breaths and trying to be as patient as possible. I understand how he feels so I'm cutting him a lot of slack. I love my kid, I love my kid, I love my kid. Ske-doosh.

Very quick post to let you all know that I'm the WICKED stamper over at SCS this month!! Come check out the challenges! Here are the projects I made to get your creative juices flowing. I gave the mini chipboard album to my mom today. Pretty cool to be able to hand deliver this gift to my ma after not having seen her for 3 years.
My grandfather's memorial was today and it was wonderful to see all of the faces there. It's therapeutic celebrating his life with people who knew him well. As I type this post, I can hear my neice and nephew laughing in the next room while watching Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. My brother and his wife, my aunt, my cousin Todd, Skyler and I are having pizza for supper. I've got a grin on my face the size of Idaho. Love it. Ske-doosh.
