LOTS to catch up on!

OK so I know I haven't updated sorry, been working on a layout and its been driving me mad!! I got these rub ons out of my scrap booking stash. They were not expensive. I will not put here the name brand but It is not an expensive one and NO THEY DON'T smell like pop corn. YA. My bud Jing Jing that I am on the Scrapbook Obsession's Design Team came up with that theory. (AND IT IS SOOOOOO TRUE!!!) She had figured out that when rub ons ( for just example the Jenni Bowlin ones the little ones and the Cosmo Cricket ones) are really good rub ons, They smell like popcorn!!! SERIOUSLY!

Well I wanted to do this layout with a countdown in the swirliess on the side... yeah.. ::SIGH:: I was going to have them fading down the swirls like they were time fading off in a "Alice in Wonderland" kinda mesmerizing way,,, well THAT DIDNT HAPPEN ! IT was good in "THEORY"

I actually did a layout before, that I wrote tiny "The Night Before Christmas story" all around the flourishes and That is what gave me the idea
so I lifted myself, so to speak HERE IT IS.. see the tiny writing? That was her Cinderella doll she got from Grandma that year. she was so happy. Her first BARBIE. (the big head barbie cinderella.)
So that is what I was "TRYING" TO SORTA DO


(THAT DIDN'T SMELL LIKE POPCORN) I had to rub and rub and rub. my hands were cramping!! OH! but they were soooo perfect for this page!!! Well, so I THOUGHT! grrrr, They tore off the top layers of my papers and made a mess of things. I was so upset.
So what was I to do? I was just upset. I summonsed my facebook pals and twitter audience my brain was just stalled HELP HELP! SCRAPPER DOWN SCRAPPER DOWN! 911 RUB ON DAMAGE DETECTED CALL FOR BACK UP! SEND IN THE REINFORCEMENTS!! well here they came with all these ideas and solutions (who knew!) THANKS YALL!!

Lately I have had just my cup running over with stress and so tired of being sick we have had some deaths in my inner network of friends and family so I just have been at this point in life where you want to stand on that mountain and SCREAM I HAVE HAD ENOUGH I CANT TAKE ANYMOREEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Ya so I have just stepped away from everything and have just been scrap booking a lot and attending these scrap booking video chats and forum board things. Well through twitter and through facebook, I have met some really fun and cool people that have taught me SOOOOO MUCH.
(REMOVABLE TAPE??? I had no idea)
and I had totally forgotten about my highly coveted item UNDU!!!
Can you EVEN FIND THIS STUFF ANYMORE? I Need a 5 gallon bucket of it!
Just a tiny droplet of it and omgosh the offending (NON POPCORN SMELLING) rub on was gone!! JUST LIKE THAT!! The pieces of the paper that were missing.. eeehhh not so much.
BUT, I could cover that up and voila' THE PAGE WAS SAVED!

It was hard to photograph this page with all the sparkly on it.
I used AMERICAN CRAFTS pp, Doodlebug sugared cardstock, LOTSSSSSSSSS of stickles, Maya road stars and the little swooshy things (nike swooshes) basic grey alphas, versa mark inks, Heidi swapp flowers, all kinda buttons, Bazzill just the edge dotted, Heidi swapp chipboard clock, Hobby lobby bling, off ray eyelash sparkly fibers.. I needed lots of bling for this to say NEW YEARSSS.

Oh yes the wonder of "Undo." One of the top ten inventions of the world -- like the pacemaker or M&M's chocolate that won't melt in your hands.

Hey - we all have our priorities!
