So, when do I freak?

Let me give you some background.  Friday night my mom calls to let me know that her and dad leave in the morning to go to Mexico for a couple weeks.  Oh, thanks for letting me know didn't know they were going, so good to know!  Saturday I get up open my Yahoo page and notice that there is a crazy little thing called the Swine Flu going on in Mexico and people have died.  Did I mention my dad is a transplant survivor?  I didn't?  Yeah, so there we get to my question of so, when do I freak?

I called my sister, she doesn't know how to get a hold of them, wth, seriously?  Ok, I will try their cell on the off chance that they not only have service in Mexico but that they have the phone on, yeah not so much.  So, do I try to find my aunt's number to see where they are and call?  Oh, right forgot, my cousin is getting married there next weekend so like a ton of people are suppose to be there--yeah no worries right?  I am stuck.  I am worried about my dad, this cannot be good.  

Now I read that they are saying all unnecessary travel to Mexico should be avoided, well crap they are already there.  This so got issued two days and a few hundred dollars short.  I am more than freaking out.  What if they don't let them back in to the States?  What if the wedding party (bride is in Mexico already too) isn't allowed to go to Mexico?  Man, my mind is working overtime I tell you.  Again, with the question so, when do I freak? 

I know, freaking out is not going to  make the situation even better, but what am I suppose to do?  Seriously, what would you do?  Because this bunny is stumped and about FREAKED OUT.  I guess I will have to wait for my sister to call me, she better call me, so I can talk to her.  I am not the only one worried about this am I?   CALGON TAKE ME AWAY!!!

Will keep all y'all posted, fingers crossed and good thoughts.  Peace out from the Bunny Hole.

Come and hop with me and OOTF!!

That's right, this is just one hop on the first ever OOTF blog hop.  Be sure to hop to all the other OOTF Community member blogs and check out all the eye candy.  These are such talented scrappers you are sure to get some inspiration.

I have had this Bella stamp for months now and I finally inked it, and I am in love!  Again I looked through my stash of scraps to find the perfect pp to go with this cute little stamp.  And since I love the color combo of pink and green I had to go with it.  Love this Fairest of Them All line from Imaginisce, add some ribbon (nutter inspired), a little bling on a Prima and its a very girly card.  I colored in my Bella with my Prisma Color Pencils, I so need to use these more often, also added a touch of fun with my glaze pens.

Thanks for peeking.  I will be drawing a random winner from all who post a comment and sending out a rack later this week.  Now hop on over to one of the sweetest most fun and fabulous scrappers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting Miss Teri at A bit of this. A bit of that. she is sure to inspire you!  Enjoy the hop everyone.  

Peace out from the Bunny Hole!

Use those Scraps

If you are a scrapper like me you have scraps all over the place.  I don't like to part with my scraps because I know I can use them.  Usually my pattern paper scraps gets used for cards, its a great way to use up those scraps of all that fun paper you didn't want to cut in the first place.  Seeing that it was my older sister's birthday this week I created a card for her using scraps of BasicGrey Urban Prairie, its such a yummy line.  
Bazzill Cardstock, BasicGrey Urban Prairie pp, BasicGrey Grow-a-Garden Stamps, Studio G Stamps, Scrappy Cat Font(Timbres Clair) Stamps, Stampin' Up! Ink, Me & My Big Ideas Bling

Use those scraps!!  Even the little bitty ones come in handy from time to time.  Until next time, that's it from the Bunny Hole

Some recent work

I just wanted to share a couple layouts that I have done recently.  Both of them are using BasicGrey Urban Prairie papers, so yummy, and both of them are from the same sketch that I came up with, just a different twist for both.  
 This is one of the pictures from my photo shoot in Utah.  Love how all the pictures turned out.  Prima flowers and Bazzill Stitchz template along with the Robin's Nest blobs and some fun bling brad really make this page fun.  Have to say thank you to the Cricut for some title help.

 This is a picture of my older brother, some crazy clown and myself at Opryland when I was like four.  Bazzill Chipboard helped add some dimension as did the Prima flowers and all the fun bling.  Again the Cricut sure did help with the title.

Thanks for looking!


Ok, its been a while, and I had to calm down before I even attempted to post this. But I am more than a little upset, I am downright mad.

Many of you know that for the last few years I have been a VERY active member of a (what I thought) was a great scrappy cyber home. Well that all came to a crashing halt this week. No, all of us ladies didn't finally let the drama happen or anything like that. Nope, CX themselves decided to pull the plug. They say it all messed up when they went to change servers, and since it was beyond repair they decided to just end it, right then and there. They didn't even have the decency to contact the design team, nope if you got a Newsletter you found out in a little blurb on the side.

I know I am not the only one who feels betrayed and very let down. We had a little family there, a group of people who laughed together, cried together, and genuinely cared about others. I can say I am glad that that will not end, oh no it won't. We are slowly moving to OOTF, Outta this Funk,! Which seems only fitting considering it is former CX DT members that created this wonderfully inspiring place. So, if you are a former member of the afore mentioned community and you feel lost, come on over to OOTF, they have rolled out the welcome mat!!

Can I just add, that the least THEY could have done was give us some time in the archives to maybe find some contact information and other items that could have been in there. The archives were up and running along with the chat room until they decided to pull the plug completely. I will add, their thank you to me irritates me. I didn't do it for the company, I did it for my family of scrappers, because we had fun and I wanted to.

Ok, I promise not to be such a stranger. Happy Scrappin'
