Yesturday was an awesome today! A package was waiting for me when I got home, and this is what was inside! Look at all this beautiful gorgeous products from American Crafts!!!  This was a welcome gift they sent me for the new store! How sweet is that!  I wish I knew how to display this better for a better picture! But trust me, it's all gorgeous! As I'm sure you can tell by all my exclamation points!!!! ;)
It's the twins Superhero Party today, so gotta run, I'll (try) to post some party pics tomorrow, including my cake-pops! Lets just say now, those little suckers are not as easy to make as I thought!

Kimono Kids

Hi Everyone
I cased this card today off an Sandi Maciver, you can see hers HERE.  It's made with the Kimono Kids stamps set in the main SU! catalogue , and it's one of my favorites! How cute are they???  I can't wait to get my Copic Markers to color them in.  Coloring is not my strong suit, but from what I've been watching and reading, Copic are supposed to make coloring easier...and more forgiving then water based markers.  
Today I'm making Superhero Cake Pops for the twins Superhero Academy Party tomorrow! Hope I have as much success as I did with their cake!  But this is going to get MESSY! I decided to make them while the boys are at school, think that I'll make a big enough mess on my own! Wish me luck!!!!

Rock n' Roll

(Click to make larger)

 This is of my niece rockin' out at her Auntie Kim's house a few summers ago playing Rock Band.  She is totally channelling her inner Rock Star!  The journaling/title is from the Kiss lyrics God gave Rock n' Roll to you, which I so forgot was from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure! Apparently that movie is really stuck in my head! (I did a layout about a month ago with B & T )
Except for the two Imaginisce pink flowers, I made all the other ones.  I particularly like the hot pink foil ones.  The pictures do them no justice!  They are made from of sheet of thick, super shiny foil, I punch them out with two different size scallop punches (FYI this is GREAT to sharpen your punches), I flipped them over and scored with a ruler and bone folder tip from every valley in the scallop to the center; then with one I used the 1/16th hand held punch to punch out the holes, and the other I used the eyelet setter on the Crop a dile to dry emboss the circles.
I worked with new IRock Tool from Imaginisce on this one as well, BUT I'm thinking trying out a new tool at midnight..not so wise.  I can see the potential in this tool, but round 1, did not go down too well! LOL!

Potty time!

Still having fun catching up on back dated picture.   My boys we're belly giggling so much at this layout...they really like my skull placement! LOL!  My YIPEEEEE title was actually cut out from the back of a Prima pack and colored with Copic Markers. 
I've actually will have projects to post this week! I crafted a lot this week end! So check back soon.

I can bake!

Hi Everyone
The boys birthday went really well yesterday. They are still having their Superhero party, but that is not till next week and  their actual birthday was yesterday so we just had the family over.  It took me all day to bake their cake...its was a giant cupcake, and that sucker took a long time to bake! I used the recipe it came with; a chocolate pound cake,  not the yummiest cake I've eaten, but luckily the icing saved the day.  So next time I make this, I'll use a my grandma's tried and true chocolate cake recipe.  But anyhoo...this icing ROCKED!!!!  It's basically meringue.... YUMMY!  I made a double batch as I wasn't sure how much I would need, and we had a lot left over.  So as you can see we had a lot of fun with the extra, and then I baked them into yummy meringue cookies...FYI...grease the pan! I didn't so getting them off deflated them! LOL! They went from Fluffy Stay Puff heads to little deflated dog poo's! LOL! But boy did they taste amazing! You can find the recipe HERE.

Happy Birthday 2 my boyz!

HI Everyone
Today my twins are 7! Can't believe it!!!!  I gave them their Ed Hardy shirts today to open after breakfast...they couldn't believe they didn't have to wait till after school! Too cute.  Tristan said he "totally feels 7" and Ethan said " I don't feel any different" LOL! 
So today, I'm taking a break from picking out shelving, doing my business planner and all the other "fun...NOT" stuff I've been doing later for the shop to be a good Momma and make the boys an Oreo cookie GIANT cupcake cake for them.  Hope it turns out alright.  I'll blog it tomorrow.  Keep your fingers crossed for me, it's not made out of paper so I'm out of my element!

Flying High

FYI : Just waiting for one final "i" to be dotted before I make my big announcement!
Hi Everyone
Your going to be seeing a lot of layouts with my twins when they were 2!  I'm enjoying scrapping them this little again, soon it'll be their 7th b-day and as all you Momma's know, Time FLYS!!!  
Today's LO has a mix of a bunch of supplies: SU!, Tim Holtz, Rusty Pickle, Teressa Collins and American Crafts. 

The picture is not picking up the detail of the crown very well; but it looks amazing in real life and I wanted to share with you what I did.  Click on the picture to make it larger, hope that shows it better.
1. Trace crown around you card stock back ground paper and cut out. (not top of crown)
2. Cover cut out card stock with Crystal Effects, let it sit and start to harden about 10 min; lay crown on top and gently press in.  Let dry for 10 more min.
3.  Add another thick layer of CE on and leave to dry.  Attach to LO.

Nursery Suite..blast from my past

FYI my big project plans should be announced soon! Just jumping though my final hoop today!
Hi Everyone
Well a few weeks ago I decided to organize my scrapbooks in chronological date order; most were that way already, but since I became a demo 3 years ago, some of my club and class pages just had random pictures on them not in any order; just what looked best on the layout.  While I was doing that, I discovered that I am missing a whole year of the twins; age 2!  I know I had a computer melt down at that age and lost a bunch of photo's, but I didn't think I lost everything!  It's hard to remember details like that...twin 2 year old boys were VERY busy to say the least!  So after staying up till 3am and tearing my house apart; I came to the conclusion that I missed scrapping that year!  I did find some, not many pictures of them at two that I'll be scrapping for the next little while.  And I must admit it's fun doing toddler pages again; I was a new scrapbooker when the boys were this lets just stay my style was still developing! LOL! 
This LO is made with SU! Nursery Suite; I've had people say to me that they don't want this paper cause they think it's too girly, well, here is proof that it is not! With the gorgeous shape of the main page, I was able to leave the LO pretty simple, but I think it still looks stunning and very boy..even with some pink accents on it!
