On a little side note, here are a couple clips from my favorite new shows:

Cougar Town:

Parks and Recreation, if you like a little dry humour:

And of course I can't wait for Vampire Diaries and Lost to resume their normal schedules. TV has been a little lacking lately, and I miss my shows! I haven't seen House for a few weeks either. Humph. What are you guys watching??

Joyful, Baby it's Cold Outside

Mel has not one but two new kits out this week! Aren't you in for a treat! The first one is called Joyful, and I just loved the colors and the layouts I made using this one:My layouts:Credits: Joyful by Mel's Lightbulb Moments, template bySine.
This layout is very true to who I am at the moment, I've been having some issues and I really need to re-focus, and I'm going to use the new year as an opportunity to change some things about myself, and try to have a better life day by day. And the other kit out today is Baby it's cold outside! Lately that has been so true around here. I really liked this kit also, and found the colors went easily with many of my photos and my layouts came really quickly and easily. Plus, how adorable are those snowmen?And my layouts:Credits: Baby it's cold outside by Mel's Lightbulb Moments, template by Janet Phillips
This photo is actually my sister in law on a road trip, apparently the hat was a great accessory, as it was good for conversation as well!
Make sure and check out these kits while they are on sale during the first 48 hours! Well, that's it for me for today. Hope you're staying warm and joyful!!

It's Complicated

I went to see this movie last night (having a bit of a rough week so my sister took me ♥). I had wanted to see Avatar, but when we got there it was already sold out, and she really wanted to see this one. I expected a romantic comedy, but this movie genuinely surprised me with just how good it really was. I mean, Meryl Streep is always fantastic, and with Steve Martin, and Alec Baldwin too, you can't really go wrong. And while I kind of disliked Alec Baldwin's character, I think he kind of stole the show! It was so much funnier than I expected, the audience was laughing so hard through parts that you couldn't hear what was being said. It was really good, and if you have time, definitely go see it.

King Pin

Anyone else out there like bowling?? I really love bowling, especially the neon bowling. I actually bowl better in the dark, I think it's because I really focus on the pins then, as they glow!! Pretty fun stuff. Cheri over at Dream Big came out with this uber cool bowling kit, check it out:You can grab it in her store here. And here are my layouts!! This first one I just love!! How cool is that bowling alley element? And that rental shoe? Awesome.And for this layout, I used Vicki's template, it was a freebie on her blog but if it's no longer up as a freebie, check her store!! I actually really like this template, I've used it a couple times, and I love that I can show off lots of papers with it!!Anyhoo, thanks for visiting me! Make sure you check out Cheri's blog for the freebies that the CT has done for you!! (I'm the only slacker as of late it seems that doesn't do a freebie, sorry!) I hope someone out there enjoys these posts. I really do need to do some more posts in between, my rants and random ramblings have been few and far between! I appreciate everyone that reads my posts though, it's nice to know someone out there likes what I have to say!

Colour My World!

Hey guys, Vicki has a new kit out today, called Colour My World, and is it ever packed full of colours. I don't know how many times I told her how much I love the colors in this kit, so bright and vibrant. Here is the full preview:And here is my layout, I used a template "jumper 23" by Crystal Livesay (I really love her templates!) I also used a photo texture by Cinnamon Designs on my photo. This one I absolutely LOVE. I loved this template by Janet Phillips, and how my layout turned out, (I originally bought the template at the Daily Digi, but Janet has since moved to the Sweet Shoppe). I loved the papers I chose from Vicki's fantabulous kit, and I love how my photos matched the kit (totally didn't even try to do that!).So another day, another post!! Feels like all I blog about is scrapping, but there really isn't too much else going on in my world right now. I've been trying to do some quilting, but I barely even manage to get pieces cut without my kids interrupting me. Crafts have dwindled to nil as well, but I am still trying to read and take time for me too. This time of year is so busy! On top of everything else we women regularly do, we have to do all the "Christmas stuff" on top of it, like planning meals, shopping and wrapping, making cards. Maybe I put it all on myself, I dunno! Anyone out there have a hubby that does shopping for anyone other than his wife?? I know I sure don't! Hope your new year has started off properly and that your holidays have been great! I know I'm really looking forward to making a fresh start this year!

Beware the few racy photos...thought it was worth it to see all the other ones!
