MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE #78

Thank You for joining me on another My Grafico Wednesday Challenge. I did miss everyone last week. I seem to catch everything that my kids are coming down with from school. My son's school has actually had to call parents of kids that have come to school more then two days sick and ask them to come get their child from school. They asked them if they would keep their children at home until they are better. I was amazed that they were going to start doing this. Both my kids have come home with something from school in the last two weeks and I made them stay home from school.

Before we get to this week's challenge I do have an announcement. This will be the last challenge for the year. We may come up with one more but I'm not for sure. I will still be posting projects that I'm making so you can still keep getting some ideas from the projects that I have been making. Make sure you come back the first week of January to see the first of My Grafico's Wednesday's Challenge of 2011.

The challenge this week is Anything Goes. I love these challenges because you will see more of my work come out in the project. We worked with Digital Brushes and Digital Paper. The Digital Brushes are Vintage Pinecones designed by Cheri Wenger and the Digital Papers are Traditional Christmas Damask Papers. This week you could make a card, scrapbook layout or any altered item to use for the challenge. Just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES on your project. Here's where you need to go to grab your freebie: http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies.

Here's a picture of the Digital Brushes and the Digital Papers:











Here is the card that I made with these brushes and papers:



Well all you need to do is go to http://mygraficocrafts.blogspot.com/ and read the rules and create your project. I wish you all the luck at winning these Digital Papers and Digital Brushes.

MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE #76

Thank You for visiting my blog for another My Grafico Challenge. I wasn't sure if I was going to get my project done for this week. After getting things done last Wednesday I went to print some more things to get some other projects done. My husband said he would print them out for me just let him know what to print. So I had everything ready and he takes the computer and goes to print. He yells at me and wants to know if I heard my cat vomiting. I have 4 cats but this one named Feather has stomach issues and unfortunately vomits at least once a day. Doctors have tried to figure it out but so far no one has. Well I didn't hear him but he decided to vomit in my printer and fried the board. Now I need a new printer. I have to wait for the next check to get one. My husband did purchase me one and it's so great. It's WiFi and I can be in one room and print my project in the other room. I don't have to carry my laptop everywhere with me now. So that's my bad luck story of the week. Enough about my life let's get to this week's challenge that you are going to love.

The challenge this week is Go Girly. We worked with Digital Stamps and Digital Paper. The Stamps are Unicorns and Hearts. How could you not get an idea for a girly project. This week you could make a card, scrapbook layout or any altered item to use for the challenge. Just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES on your project. Here's where you need to go to grab your freebie: http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies.


Here's a picture of the Digital Stamps that are designed by Blackleaf Studios. The Digital Papers were designed by Stockberry Studio named Stick Figure Fairies.

30 DAYS OF TRUTH: DAY 2

SOMETHING YOU LOVE ABOUT YOURSELF

Well, I knew I wouldn't be able to get to this 30 days of truth everyday. I'm glad that I let you all know about that in advance. There are just days that you have your list of things to do today ready in hand and by time the evening comes you may have only half of the list done. This past week my husband was home more then usual and there went my peace time to do my own things. I love him to pieces but it's hard to do things when he is around.

So, I had time one day to do my next question and I was excited until I seen what the question was. This took me awhile to think about. When you have major depression you don't love anything about yourself. At least I don't. Depression has made my life miserable making me not wanting to like myself. I have been dealing with it for so long that loving anything about me just doesn't make sense.

Well, I thought back to my years before the depression and remembered one thing that I did love about myself and so did many others. I was a very strong person who did not let anyone get under my skin. Say all they wanted about me but I wouldn't let it affect me at all. I was happy and did everything I wanted to do. I know if I was strong like that now I wouldn't be suffering from depression today. I don't know how I went from a very strong upbeat person to someone who hates to leave her house for anything.

I guess I would have to say that I loved something about myself way back when. Maybe one of these days with the medication and counseling I will become that strong willed person again. I just have to take each day at a time.

Thanks for reading and until next time!!

MY 30 DAYS OF TRUTH!!

In my last post I said that I had seen alot of bloggers doing this 30 Days of Truth. Bloggers will answer questions a day at a time or a on a day that they are able to get to the next question. I will let you know that I may not get to a question a day but I will do my best. I want to Thank Stephanie Thigpen who inspired me to do this with he answer to question number one. There were similar things in my life that related to her story. She has a great blog called Polos, Pearls, & Pacifiers. Her blog link is http://stephaniert90.blogspot.com/. When you have a chance you should visit and say hello.

I'm going to answer question #1 tonight to start my 30 Days of Truth. I do want to let you all know that I believe in honesty. When I say something it's what I mean. No tall tails or lies because I would not like that to be told to me. Here we go

Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.

I have to agree with Stephanie that hate is a strong word. My Grandmother says that all the time. The one thing that I do not like about myself is my Mental Illness. Yes, I can actually say that I have this disease. This disease has made my life very hard to deal with. I suffer from Major Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attacks. I have had depression since the early 1990's then in the early 2000's is when I started getting panic attacks and having the anxiety. I can honestly say that during those years alot of bad things kept happening in my life. If it wasn't one thing it was another. I won't bore you with the details because I could probably sit here and write you a book.

I don't like this disease because it can make you so depressed that you sleep for days, cry at almost anything and miss alot of family events. My family is the most important to me and I get more depressed when I can't even leave my home to go somewhere with my children. My children know all about it and have been the best with accepting it. My husband makes sure that I take all my medicines so I can be as normal as can be. When I am doing good I make sure that I spend every moment with my kids, husband and grandson.

So there is what I dislike about me. I'm not ashamed to say that I have this disease. The only thing that I would like for people to know is that I'm not contagious and I'm a normal person besides my mental disease. I have lost friends and snubbed by some people that I have worked with in the past. I want people to know and like me for me.

Thanks for reading!!

Here are the 30 questions that I will be answering in my 30 Days of Truth.

Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.


Day 2: Something you love about yourself.

Day 3: Something you have to forgive yourself for.

Day 4: Something you have to forgive someone for.

Day 5: Something you hope to do in your life.

Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do.

Day 7: Someone who has made your life worth living for.

Day 8: Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.

Day 9: Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.

Day 10: Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.

Day 11: Something people seem to compliment you the most on.

Day 12: Something you never get compliments on.

Day 13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)

Day 14: A hero that has let you down. (letter)

Day 15: Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.

Day 16: Someone or something you definitely could live without.

Day 17: A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.

Day 18: Your views on gay marriage.

Day 19: What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?

Day 20: Your views on drugs and alcohol.

Day 21: (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?

Day 22: Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.

Day 23: Something you wish you had done in your life.

Day 24: Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)

Day 25: The reason you believe you’re still alive today.

Day 26: Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?

Day 27: What’s the best thing going for you right now?

Day 28: What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?

Day 29: Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.

Day 30: A letter to yourself: tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself.

MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE #72

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!

I hope that everyone had a Wonderful Weekend and a Great Beginning to your week. I'm a little behind on things but the reason was well worth it. I seen my Grandson this weekend. I can't believe how a little 11 month old baby can wear you out as much as he does. He's starting to walk a couple of steps at a time but hasn't just got up and went. This week will be his first Halloween and he will be dressed as a Monkey. He finally seen my Halloween lights and just stares at them. I had to leave some of the scary stuff in the tote so we didn't scare him. On another note, I will be starting a different kind of post in a couple of days. I have seen where everyone is answering questions about themselves for 30 days. I thought I would start doing this just so everyone can get to know me a little better. I will list all 30 questions so you will know what will be coming up next. You don't have to read them but I would like you to get to know me.

Let's get to this weeks challenge. The challenge is Make It Sparkle. You can use anything shiny, sparkly, or even glitter. There are so many embellishments out there that I know you can make your project sparkle. We worked with Halloween Owls and Papers. These owls were so easy to work with. Probably because they were in halloween costumes. Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays. I love watching all the kids on Trick or Treat and see what they are wearing. The little kids are the cutest. So this week you could make a card, scrapbook layout or any altered item you would like. Just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES on your project. Here's where you need to go to grab your freebie: http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies.

Here's a picture of the Digital Stamps and Papers that you can win with the project that you enter. The Digital Stamps and Papers are designed by JW Illustrations called Halloween Owls.



Here is my card that I made from this set.



Well all you need to do is go to http://mygraficocrafts.blogspot.com/ and read the rules and create your project. I wish you all the luck at winning these Digital Papers and Digital Stamps. Have a Wonderful Wednesday and a Great Weekend coming up.

I had projects to finish up and hosted a scrapbooking party for the company that I consult for. Plus two birthdays and one big migraine in the middle of all of that. Busy, Busy, Busy. I haven't I a real busy week like this for a real long time.

My grandson's 1st Birthday is next month and it's hard to believe it. As you have seen, I have done some projects with him in them. Well if I wasn't married to my high school sweetheart I wouldn't of had my son and then my grandson. So this weeks project was made with my husband Tony. This was actually an easy project after I came up with my title. Tony has been there through all of our ups and downs and I would be lost without him. So, Thank You Tony for being my rock and I Love You!! Ok let's move on to the challenge.

This week we were to work on a project about clocks. Yes, You heard me right, clocks. I had so many ideas after I started on my layout and was amazed what you could come up with for clocks.

MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE #69

Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday. Half way to the weekend and I'm actually looking forward to it. I would like to apologize for not posting last weeks challenge. Instead of going into a long story of my life I just want to say that life happened more then usual. I just hope that my luck will change soon.

This weeks project was make it Pop Up. I love adding dimension to things. It just adds that little 3-D look that is great when looking at a project. I can honestly say though that I found this weeks project was actually a challenge for me. Not because of the stamps or papers but for the fact that my boys growing up did not like clowns. Yes, we are working with clowns. The stamps are so cute and I love the papers. You could use these papers for so many projects. So I had to remember that these are challenges we do every week and come up with an idea. You could color the clowns so many ways but I don't think I have ever met a clown that was color coordinated. LOL. Now let get to the way you can win these great stamps and papers.

You can make anything that you wish just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES on your project. Don't forget to add something metal to your project. Here's where you need to go to grab your freebie: http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies.

Here's a picture of the Digital Papers and Digital Stamps that you can win with the project that you enter. The Digital Papers are from Dilek Design Studio called Joyful Clowns and the Digital Stamps are by Cupcake Cuties called Circus Love Papers.


See these clowns are so cute!!



Well now it's time to how you my project. This week I mad a scrapbooking layout with the stamps and papers. I could have made a Birthday card but  I just wanted to do something different.






I made the clowns pop up off the page and then added the frame that lifted up to see my little man. It is kind of hard to show the clowns popping up but they are 1/4" off the page.


Well all you need to do is go to http://mygraficocrafts.blogspot.com/ and read the rules and create your project. I wish you all the luck at winning these Digital Papers and Digital Stamps. Have a Wonderful Wednesday and a Great Weekend coming up.

MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE #67

Hello Everyone!! I hope you are having a Wonderful Wednesday and a great start to the fall season. It's suppose to be in the lower 90's today so I can't call that fall. Fall has always been my favorite season for many reason's. My birthday is in fall and so is Halloween. My Halloween decorations for outdoors has become larger then my Christmas decorations. I can also say that my favorite color is purple and orange is the next. Also with the fall season I know that I will start that famous Christmas shopping so it's done before December. I love giving gifts and seeing the look on people's faces when they get what they wanted. So of coursed Christmas is my favorite Holiday. Just a few things for you to learn about me. Now I know you are all excited for our challenge this week.

This weeks challenge is paper piecing. We were to use Mod Owls and Dotted line paper. The owls are adorable and I loved the papers but have never made anything with Owls. I can honestly say that I had trouble with the Owls. I couldn't think of a funny quote or theme for them. So at the last day before I'm to submit my project I think of two ideas. The card that I ended up making that you will see shortly and one that I knew I could not get finished in time but would like to share it real quick with you in case you would like to try it. I thought of an address book with one of the Owls sitting on a branch and a couple of Owls at the bottom of the front page. I would use the words WHOO WHOO because only you would know who was in your book. I really do want to finish this idea because I think it will be a great gift for Christmas. Now to what you need to do to win these papers and stamps.

You can make anything that you wish just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES on your project. Don't forget to add something metal to your project. Here's where you need to go to grab your freebie: http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies.

MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE #66

I'm looking at my last blog and noticed I haven't been on here for a week. I have been busy with finishing projects, having a birthday party for my daughter and fighting the pink eye and MRSA. I had such a great two days last week and now I'm back to being sick again. I guess I will have to go back to the doctor so they can try something different. Moving on now.

This week we were to work with western digital papers, wild west quotes and also to add a little metal to the project. My daughter said I always do projects that are boyish. LOL So now I made it for a girl. You never realize how much kids pick up on things that you don't. She's one smart 11 year old. So I enjoyed this project because she was very happy. Now to what you need to do to win these papers and stamps.

You can make anything that you wish just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES on your project. Don't forget to add something metal to your project. Here's where you need to go to grab your freebie: http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies.

MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE # 65

I would like to say Hello to everyone and apologize for not posting the challenge last Wednesday. Unfortunately I had the MRSA virus and pink eye on top of that. Still recovering but doing much better. This is the third time with MRSA so I kind of know the drill. It's just hard on the whole family. Well enough about me. Let's get to the challenge this week.

This week we are working with Digital Paper and Digital Images that pertain to the beach. I'm sure everyone has those summer pictures that are waiting to be put on a scrapbook page. I have to admit that this was the first time that I worked with digital paper but it was so much easier then I thought.

So the challenge is that you use the colors of the Digital Beach papers. You can make anything that you wish just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES on your project. Here's where you need to go to grab your freebie: http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies.

These are great papers and images that you will want to finish those summer pictures.




I will show you the project that I made with these papers and images. My project that I did make was a Beach Party Invitation. You should see the other projects that the Design Team had made. You can see how many different things you can do with these products.

MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE #62

Hello Everyone!! It's Wednesday again and I'm counting down the days that the kids are starting school next week. Part of me is sad because I have had a wonderful summer with my family. Part of me of course wants to jump up and down. Some silent days is what I'm looking forward to. It's so easy to scrapbook when you don't have a child asking 20 questions while your working. Like now, my daughter is trying to find the outfit she wants to wear to school for next week and of course I have to see each and everyone of them. The funny part of this is I'm the one that took her to buy all these clothes she is showing me. She's starting to be a true girly girl.

Well lets get to the challenge for this week. This challenge is great. It's an anything goes challenge. You can make anything that you wish just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES.

MY GRAFICO CHALLENGE #61

Happy Wednesday or as some people call it Hump Day!! This week's challenge is one that you are going to want to participate in. You are going to use pastel colors and a photo for inspiration. I knew that my photo was going to be my Grandson who is 9 months old. The time has went so fast since he's been born. I thought I was to young to be a Grandmother but I can honestly say that it is so great. He has made such a difference in my world and everyone else to. His nickname around here is Little Dude. His Grandpa is teaching him to do knuckles instead of a hand shake.

Sorry, I could talk about him forever. So the challenge is pastels and photo inspiration.
You can use all the supplies you have but just include one item from My Grafico on the project. There is a FREEBIE tab where you can look and see what you would like to add for FREE. What a great word. Visit here to look at the pages of FREEBIES: http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies

The Challenge with the rules and other ideas that were made from this new Stamp Set that someone will win is located at http://mygraficocrafts.blogspot.com/ . Look on the sidebar to your right where the rules are located. If you have any questions on how to add you entry just let me know and I will help you out.

Up for grabs this week is a Stamp Set by Sanqunetti and the set is called Hunny Bunny. This is a darling set to have in your collection. Here is a picture of the set:




This is adorable isn't it!! Here is what I made from this set:





Well I hope you enjoyed my card. I had a Great Stamp Set and an Adorable Grandson. Can't wait to see your projects.
