Sad... But true!

Sadly I have no new creations to show off for you all today, SOrry! However I do plan on making it up to you all this weekend... Tomorrow bright and early I am going on a "crop and Crawl" put on by the wonderful and talented Allison Orthner!!! So is a fabulous photographer, scrapbooker and really human being, LOVE HER!!! Anyway, we are all meeting up, getting on buses and touring all the scrapbooking stores in Calgary, then we stop for a bite to eat, and off to scrapbook the night away!! Sound like fun??? I think so!!
Anyway, I should (hopefullY) get a bit a scrapbooking done, so you can all see my latest creations then.
Also on a more personal note, today was a very big anniversary of sorts for me...
Two years ago today, I finally was excepting of a condition I had(have) called Alopecia. An autoimmune condition, were for no reason your hair falls out...For two years I lived with out a single hair on my WHOLE(yes whole) body... Two years ago today, I dressed up as "Uncle Fester" from the adams family... For those of you not aware of his character, he is a stocky bald very pale, dark eyed dude... and answer the door to hand out candy like that!! A very big step for me... Now two years later my hair is BACK... and to celebrate I went for my very first full blown hair cut, color, and highlight.... I was nervous to be honest!! Anyway, Lisa at In Style, did a FABULOUS job and made this day extra special... thank you Lisa!!!
Here's hoping it will be one of Many fabulous Hairstyles....
I will post a few pics tomorrow, once I find someone to take them!!

hello my faithful readers...

Up way to late almost 1am calgary time. Had a busy day worked  from 10am to 12am... wow 14hours, clearly I must like what I do. Tomorrow I get to put on my photographers hat, and shoot a baptism, honestly I am really nervous, it will be my first baptism and I am not sure what the rules are for taking pictures in a church, what you are and aren't allowed to do....
However, after that I am going over to my friend Shari's to scrapbook, so that will be a nice calm after my stressful morning!! I will post pics of both the baptism and my creations when I get home!! for now I will look for a few pics to dazzle my sweet, thoughtful readers!!!!
The first picture is of my BF Mark and our two Puppies Jake and Maggie out in Radium BC the second is just of him and his handsome face, He is just finished his third year electrical schooling and did so awesome I am totally proud of him, we had a group of friends over to celebrate last night, tons of fun!!
the last pic is of my fathers view at his home in Radium, must be rough... please note that I have played with it a bit, using photoshop, not the best pic, but fun to mess with colors and such!!!

so... what do you think?

Hey Ladies,
as some may have noticed I have been "trying on" different Headers for my blog! Made this Fall one this morning, think it may be the winner, what do you think? What I was thinking of doing is doing one for each season here in Calgary... We don't have typical seasons here, the weather is a bit odd to say the least... but getting some neat pics to capture the seasonal changes we do have may be nice...
The saying here is "if you don't like the weather wait ten minutes" and this is so true!!!
Calgary weather can change 10-15 degrees in a heart beat... we also get things called 
"chinooks" Not only is it a great mall here, but also a weather phenomenon where a warm wind blows in over the mountains and we can go from freezing winter temps to suntanning weather in just a few  hours, what a nice way to have a break from the cold weather that we are known for!!!!
Hope to make some more Xmas cards today, if I get some done I will post them tonight, however have a crazy work day ahead of me!!!
Have a great day!

Some cards I have been making....

Hey all, sorry about the head turning with these cards, but scanning them four at a time seemed the best way to make then all on one posting... Most of these cards are done useing "peel Off" outline stickers from "paperpast times" in Calgary Alberta Canada a very cute little store in the SW. anyway, you peel them off and put them on water color paper, then color them in lightest to darkest with "tombo" marker, then blend the colors together with a watercolor brush and a light amount of water... cut them out and make card as usual!!! These "peel Off" stickers are very hard to find, and I have only ever seem them at Paper past times... a little pricey for sure, but what a great effect!! ok, I am off to Paperpast times to get some more supplies and work on some more cards! take care
