A scrappy kind of day!

Well, as most Saturday's go this time of year, I end up either scrapbooking at my house or heading off to a crop... it seems I become the football loving husbands widowed wife on the weekends, lol... so today I joined my friends Ching, Karen, and Yolanda for a day of scrapbooking at Scrap N' Yap. I haven't had so much fun scrapping, talking, and eating as I had today. I could not have been more perfect. We had some fantastic BBQ for lunch in a little restaurant called Joe's BBQ (I think that's what it's called...) and then we worked out way through some Churches Chicken, and finished the night off at A Cherry On Top for a frozen yougart BUFFET! I have never seen such a thing, about 10 choices of frozen yougart, we help our selves to a cup and fill it with the varieties we liked.... we then top it off with an assortment of toppings, and then they weigh it (I didn't want to look, it was a HUGE bowl) and we pay... I had a trio of yougarts... oreo cookie, cheese cake, and chocolate... I topped it with an assortment of chocolate toppings and for the "health" factor I threw on some raspberries, strawberries, and of course CHERRIES!
(Notice how HUGE, those SMALL bowls are!)

So besides EATING, we did do some scrapbooking (at least some of us, UH... CHING???)

Here is the layout that got rave reviews... Karen, thanks for letting me use your layout as a sketch for this! I love how this turned out using my November Urban Anthology Kit!

10 days and counting

Things have be busy this year... between starting a new business... my full time job, and buying a new house, it surly has kept me on my toes. I'm happy to say that in 10 day's we will be able to move into our brand new house. It is so exciting that this day has finally come! Today we took our final walk through of the house, double checking all of the items that were needing to be fixed as our inspector found. I realized how much work we are going to have to do to make the house ours... what seems like perfection when it is fully furnished... isn't quite that after the home owners start removing their personal items from the home. But none the less, its exciting to not live somewhere with noisy neighbors above us, traffic and trains passing buy at all hours of the day... and not being delayed by funeral processions, lol!

Between all the paperwork and inspections for the home, Ching and I have worked on creating our next kit for Urban Anthology. I'm excited to announce It's A Wonderful Life. This kit has a touch of winter, a touch of Christmas, and just and elegant feel to it! I can't wait for the holiday's to come to scrap with this kit some pictures of Christmas in our new home. Did I mention you can pre order yours now... just head over to the Urban Anthology Store, and better yet, it will ship before December 15... so you will have it in plenty of time for the holidays.

Announcing Calgon Take Me Away

Another month has come... and my company Urban Anthology has released its November 2008 Kit for sale... announcing Calgon Take Me Away. This kit will bring you relaxation and a refreshed mind... get those summer photos scrapped, your children's back to school photos and parties in albums, this kit is so versatile, you just won't be able to put down the pieces...

Here is a look at all the goodies you can get... just stop on over at the Urban Anthology Store to get yours today!

Besides prepareing the next kit, I was busy enjoying the Halloween Season... Chris and I went to Disneyland to enjoy our Halloween, Disney style! We managed to get in the two newest rides, that we had been dreading the long lines for months... but we were able to make it through both under 45 minutes for each ride! We enjoyed some tasty sourdough bread bowls with soup, YMMY! As well as making our routine trip to the Tiki room, for my enjoyment of the singing birds... I'm not sure what is is about that room, but it makes me laugh every time. The trip to disney land, and the Mickey shaped pumpkins, truly inspired me to create a few pages with my October 2008, Bewitched, Urban Anthology Kit. I had a blast yesterday creating these...
