snow day scrapping.

Hello everyone! We had a snow day today... which you could probably more call and "ice day" because we only got like an inch of snow and the rest ice! Well, anyways... I'm happy about the day off. It gave me the opportunity to scrap! Yippee! That's something I haven't done in a few weeks. haha. So, here's my pages...

polka dot stamp | ms small monarch(?) butterfly punch | malted milk ink

Enjoy today is a page about my family and I on Christmas Day 2010. I'm so happy to have this picture scrapped. :)

And, this is based of this fabulous page by Tina

mr hydrangea mist | ms classic & monarch(?) butterfly punch | mr leaf stick pin | sc butterfly stamps | jbs malted milk ink | jbs stick candy ink

Sunshine is a page about my sweet pup! I love that picture of her. :)

This page is based off of this page by Nicole

So, that's all I've got today! Off to scrap some more! & Yes, I've been keeping up with Project 365 photos (only missed one day!). Just haven't been keeping up with posting them. haha. But, I have them. ;)

P.S. - Y'all happy that today is reveal day over at Studio Calico? The Candy Shoppe kit is looking fabulous!

Quick post today! I haven't posted in a little less than two weeks and it's making me sad. So, here's some currents to fill the gap, until I have time to post something more! :)

listening: Hold It Against Me - Britney Spears & Grenade - Bruno Mars
eating: nothing
drinking: nothing
wearing: Pajama pants from Aero, a school t-shirt, and fuzzy socks
feeling: sleepy
weather: cold and dark
wanting: the weekend to be here
needing: to get organized
thinking: about the start of actual p.e. class on Thursday
enjoying: the wintry feel of the season
wondering: how'd I do this semester?

So, if you read that... thanks for going along with my boring post. haha. I really, really hope to be back soon with something exciting or more intriguing. This weekend, maybe? Once I have some scrappy time!

Have a fab night!

more 365.

Popping in quickly before getting back to work on my Literature essay. Sharing my project 365 days 10, 12, and 13. Day 11 is on my phone and I can't get it uploaded right now. ;)

Here we go...

Day 10: 

My brother's hand. Random, but I needed a picture before heading off to bed & he was sitting there. haha.

Day 12:

My laptop. You can see my dad's head a little, too. He was working on getting powerpoint on my computer. :)

Day 13:

A reflection of me in my jammies in the mirror. lol.

Thanks for stopping by today! :) Have a great weekend! I hope to be back over the weekend, posting things... but I have company coming to visit & tons of end of the semester work to be finished.

What a neat day! And, I was so excited that I actually looked at the clock at 11:11 today! My friend and I like spazzed because we were able to celebrate at 1.11.11 at 11:11 a.m. teehee. Anyways, my main computer with all of my photos and everything has crashed, so I don't have access to any photos to post, nor do I have access to my photo program, so there is no 365 photos today. Y'all are probably relieved. lol. It's just some currents...

listening: Grenade - Bruno Mars & Love Like Woe - The Ready Set
eating: airheads.
drinking: nothing
wearing: pajama pants and long-sleeved t-shirt
feeling: anxious
weather: cold with a wintry mix
wanting: for it to snow so school is canceled tomorrow
needing: time to scrapbook
thinking: will they cancel school?
enjoying: the half-day I had today
wondering: if I'll be able to fit in some scrap time soon! 

Sorry for the crazy italics, again. I don't know why my computer does this! 

Oh, and one last thing... have you seen the fabulous new Studio Calico releases? They revealed some things over on the blog! Countryside & State Fair. *swoon* 

Thanks for stopping by today! And, are any of your having snow... if so, how much? We're forecast to have some late tonight, but right now it's just raining. I'm kind of sad. hehe.

a paw, a fortune cookie, and a cute face.

Hey everyone! Back again with Project 365: Days 7, 8, and 9. :) I promise that soon I will have something besides p. 365. I have a few layouts in the works... so I should be relieving your boredom soon! Anyways, here's days 7, 8, and 9....

Day 7:

Friday afternoon was extremely lazy. My mom was taking down decorations, but I was worn out from the week and just wanted to lounge. Madi slept on my lap. I snapped this picture of me holding her little paw.

Day 8:

Saturday morning we went to a local historical area and shot a video for my brother's school project. It was snowing for a bit. Then, we headed out to basketball and cheerleading. Saturday night Mass came after. And, then we ate Chinese takeout for dinner. Everyone went to watch football afterwards and I watched Legally Blonde. 

 Day 9:

Today was homework and a very (I mean very!) teeny amount of scrapbooking time. It was also more basketball and cheer. Before heading out to help the cheerleaders, I took some pictures of little Madi. Here's my favorite of the bunch.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be back soon!

Popping in to share today's 365 photo and my currents for the week! I just took a simple picture of my phone with the text message screen. Here it is...

listening: Love Like Woe - The Ready Set
eating: cookie dough ice cream
drinking: nothing
wearing: pajama pants & aero tee
feeling: tired and overwhelmed
weather: cold
wanting: the weekend to be here
needing: time to scrapbook
thinking: about going to bed
enjoying: project 365
wondering: how much longer will I be up? 

*Sorry for the weird italics at this point... I can't get it to go away! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Sorry for the short, boring post! Be back tomorrow!

box of happiness.

That box of Studio Calico happiness arrived on my doorstep today! So, I decided to take a picture of it to use as my Project 365 photo for the day. I waited about .02 seconds after this picture before ripping that baby open! haha. Here she is...

And, let me just say... the SC exclusive paper is just FABULOUS! I literally squealed when I pulled it out of the little baggy. So darn fabulous! For those of you who already have your kits... enjoy. And, for those still waiting... may your little (or maybe big?) box get to you soon!

Have a lovely evening!

lunch extra.

Back again for with 365, friends! I know... you're probably bored of this by now. haha. I'm trying to go easy this week with the return to my usual schedule, but don't worry! It will get more exciting towards the end of the week. ;) Have no fear!

So, today, I was craving this really good vegetable wrap from the cafeteria. By the time I got in there... they were all sold out. I ended up with fries and a bag of chips. Not that I mind... I just really wanted that wrap! haha. I didn't eat the chips at lunch, though... So, I took a picture of the bag for my 365 picture today. See it below!

Thanks for stopping by today! And, please... if you are keeping on online gallery or blog posts with your 365's... drop a link in your comment. I'd love to check it out!

butterfly hair clip.

Hey, it's me! I'm here with my Project 365 day three picture. My friend and I exchanged our Christmas presents today (we hadn't seen each other!). She got me this beautiful butterfly hair clip. I adore it. I knew I wanted to keep a picture of it... and wanted to at least attempt to capture its beauty (not that my photos are phenomenal or anything...). :) So, here it is...

Thanks for popping by today! I appreciate it. :) Have a lovely night! Be back tomorrow with more Project 365!

xoxo - Kasey

P.S. Leave me a link to your blog or your Project 365 gallery. I'd love to follow you in this journey!

Night! Hopefully I will be back soon!

top ten layouts of 2010.

Happy New Year, everyone! Here I am... two days into the New Year. Can you believe the year is already over? The end of yet another decade. This year has flown by in the blink of an eye. It's been a good year for me, but I'm looking forward to the promises of a new one! As my first blog post of 2011, I wanted to share my top ten layouts of 2010. So, here they are... in no particular order [please excuse the bad pictures!]!

Well, there we go. My top ten for 10! A few of my favorites were left out of this list, but that's okay. Nearly every layout I make is a favorite, so there is no way I could include them all! lol. Thanks for stopping by today. Be back later with my Project: 365... days 1 & 2. 

xoxo - Kasey
