C-O-N spiracy

Ugghhhh!!! I sent my computer out for repair last week and I still don't have it back yet. My hubby's computer has a terrible virus on it that keeps popping up other windows on it. To top it off, I'm now having to deal with getting my car fixed from some Nut Case who side swipped my car. I mean, I drive a big SUV, how could you not see me. Was that text message that important? This is a C-O-N Spriacy!!! All in all, I'm going to keep my head up, smile and not gonna let this steal MY JOY! I'm told that I'll have my computer back by tonight or tomorrow morning the latest. I'm using someone else's laptop at the moment just to give you a quick update on what's going on in my world. Soooo this means that I won't be able to post anything until I get my computer back. Ugghhh!! **Note to self(nts): Next time you have an issue with your computer, fix it your darn self** lol! I look soooo forward to getting things back on track with my crafts. That's the ME Time that keeps me sane. Until my next post, Smooches...

The Best Intentions

Well... you know what they say about the Best Intentions. I really wanted to go home and work on a few crafts to upload for a few challenges out there on some of my favorite blogs. MadebyMomo Tuesday Challenge, Emma's Throwback Thursday , LFIF Peachy Keen Challenge, PKS Sketch Challenge,  and SMS Terrific Tuesday Challenge. I'm being really ambitious or really Crazy, but I'm not telling. You figure it out. (lol) Anyhew, I'm determined to get some therapy in ***we all know that we use scrapping as our means of therapy***. I'll need to use my hubby's computer to upload (shhhh don't tell him) because I had to send mine out for minor repairs, Stay tuned though, I'm excited about what I'm creating. Smooches...

Made By Momo - First Tuesday Challenge of 2011

Hey yall, Made by Momo is having her 1st Tuesday Challenge of the year...

Hello Everyone and welcome to the First Tuesday Challenge of the Year!!!
So I decided for the New Year to do something different and have the girls choose some of the challenges. This week Joanna picked it and the challenge is to make something with "Snow" or a "Snow theme". Here are the absolutely fabulous projects they came up with.

This is the scoop on her Tuesday Challenges: ...For those that are new I do a challenge on my blog every other week on Tuesday. After the last challenge of the month I pick a winner from all of the months entries! My only rule is to have fun! Thanks for all of you that always participate!

Here's my Entry. I made this during Christmas for cards that my mother sent out. ***I made several different ones and she took them all...hum; mothers! lol***

THIS IS IT!!! My First Scrapping/Craft Blog EVER!!!

Hi I'm Felicia [Fé-lee-see-ah] bka "Scrapper in the Making" aka "Frank-Lee Speaking...". A Warm Hugs HELLO from ALL of us (LOL). I am super excited about this and hope that you stick around, check back often and maybe Follow Me to see this "Scrapper in the Making" get her scrap on. I've been wanting to do this for some time now and decided to just go for it. It may not be the best designed blog you've seen, but it suits me just fine for now. There will be changes to come as I learn and grow. Thank You, Thank You to sooo many of you out there that have been such an inspiration to me. I won't name names, cause my head is bad...(lol) and don't want to forget someone. You may be able to tell through some of my designs though, where my inspiration might have come from. I would love any of your comments and kind advice you want to share and any tips and tricks of the trade you'd like to share. I'll be using a lot of products and tools, some for the first time, and will give you the Real Scrap on what I think of it. (I'm not one to hold my tongue either... :-D).

Seriously, I love, love, love this craft and scrap world that I've found myself in. Everyone is sooooo nice and supportive. Maybe the world would be a better place if everyone learned to craft or became a scrapper. (Yeah Right!, like my hubby would every get caught scrapping...LOL). Anyhew I can dream can't I? ***(sn: ooops, did I tell you that I can ramble on a lot. Those who know me well wouldn't daarrre say so in person, but that's what friends are for. lol)***

Anyhew, I figured if I'm going to be doing this blog thing, than what better way to start things off than with a Give-Away... Yaaaay!! (Since I never seem to win on anyone else's blog...Ughh! ***(sn: I think that is FIXED!...just kidding ***(sn: If anyone else out there would like to sponsor a giveaway on my blog, I would be soooo honored and thankful. Just Contact Me)

OK, here's the scrappy... After reaching 100+ followers I will have a Give-Away for 1-Week for each day of the Week. That's 7 chances to win. Each day will be something different so check back on all 7 days to increase your chances. All winners will be chosen using of course, I don't want to be accused of picking favorites ;-). So hurry up and invite your friends and fellow followers on over here.

Some of you may know/remember me from participating in a few challenges out there, but you might remember me better by my closing tag line to my comments on your blogs, "Smooches...". Yes, that's ME, we're one in the same. I decided to create a seperate blog to keep things from being confusing, for me at least (lol).

Keep in mind that this blog is a work in progress so there will be changes from time to time until I get it Just Right for ME. To all the Experts, Advanced, Intermediate & Beginners, like myself...Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. SMOOCHES...
