It's been a while since I've posted! And, the month of May always seems to be like this: overly busy, too much on my plate.

This year is no exception: David and I have been celebrating his graduation, enjoying out of town guests and numerous ceremonies and parties. (You know what I'm thinking, right? LOTS of great pictures to scrap!!! lol)

And, soon we leave for Hawaii, which I am really excited about! Amidst the many life changes of graduating and moving, we're escaping it all and getting away to Maui! Pictured is an altered journal that was easily inspired by my dreams about returning to the island...I've used Heidi Swapp products mostly: stamps, mask, tape, and ghost shapes. Her stuff is SO fun to play with!!!
TTYL when I get back!!!

Happy National Scrapbooking DAY!!!! WOO HOO!!!
{ officially starts in one hour and twenty minutes...but who's counting?!?!}

Alyssa and I are getting up early to hit the sales and stock up on goods before we scrap away the day tomorrow! I hope that you'll do something special to remember the reasons you scrap and the meaning it has in your life.

Here are a couple LOs I've done this last year about scrapbooking and why I need to play with paper!!! tfl and HAPPY NSD!!!

Getting Techie

Can you believe it?! I finally figured out how to add links to my blog...I am so super happy now! Let me know if you'd like to connect your blog with mine ;)

A few comments about my links:

When you visit or, my usernames are either emel or e.mel...You can view my work in the galleries there! SUPER FUN! I think I am also on my way to another enjoyable form of SHOPPING on there ;) If you're Canadian, pickofthepatch is better, because you don't have to pay as much for shipping - woo hoo! It's super easy to join these online communities and get constant encouragement and inspiration from scrappers all over the world - yay for the www!

Ali Edwards is just too awesome - her blog ROCKS with lots of great links all over it! Her blog is how I discovered Sparkability - a VERY cool online store of baby stuff...I just COULDN'T help it! I was thinking SHOWER gifts, okay???

Also, you'll notice my bookshelf - if it's on there, it touched my life in a special way and comes with my highest recommendations! I'm sure I'll have more books on there after I read them all in Hawaii!!! Counting down the days (24 to go...)
