Well, I had Jeremiah pick a number to decide on the winner and here is what he came up with.... DRUM ROLL PLEASE.........

Hey Ya'll!!!

Hey friends,

I have been a baaaad blogger :( I sure have missed ya'll. So here's what's been up with the White Family.

Our family is preparing to move within the next 3 months---or so. No one told me when we purchased this house that if we -ever- moved it would take so much effort to pack it ALLL up. Packing a home is NOTHING like packing an apartment. Making myself a packing to do list, and slowing packing things we don't use on a regular basis has been a big help.
I am excited about our move. We are headed to a city called Frisco, Texas. Steven has taken a job out there and has been on the job since August. The drive back and forth is taking a lot out of him. He spends about 4 hours a day in travel time. We all can't wait for that drive time to come to an end. My poor hubby ;(

On a more exciting note! I have been getting my scrap on and it feels sooooo good. I can't wait to share all the fun stuff I have been creating. All the yummy CHA product is rolling into the stores and it's been so exciting to see.

I am having a lot of fun with all the Crate Paper wonderfulness. Here is some Emma's shoppe featuring my Bailey Rae. This photo was taken the week she turned 3. I caught this shot while asking her to smile for me. She turned to me and said "I don't want to smile Mommy, I just wanna be sad". She is very expressive to say the least. I loved this image because it shows such emotion and got me to thinking about how my baby girl was no longer a baby. So this was an emotional day for both her and I.

Well, I am off to say hey to "YOU" my girls. See you on your blogs :-)

Daisies Blog Hop (April)

Hey ladies, it's been a while. I hope everyone is ready for Reserrection Sunday (Easter). It's not only Easter weekend at my house it's my Baby girl Bailey's Birthday weekend. She will be 3 on Sunday. One of my Daisie layouts this month is about her being one year older, and it only being one year later. I am reflecting on how she has changed.
Here is my kit this month

and a layout
this is my neighbors son Jacob, he's such a cutie pie.

Here is the challenge this month
Pick one of the DT from Scrapbook Dasies that participated in this hop, and lift her
You use the gallery here, or your personal blogs to search for a layout of your choice. You must upload the completed lift along with a picture or a link to the person/layout that they lift onto the FACEBOOK page.

I lifted DT member Seppa. I love her style and thought this layout was just gorgeous. I love the design and the awesome detail.
Here is her original

here is my take

Now it's time to hop on over to Seppa's blog to be wowed even more by her work. See you soon!

TCR Blog Hop

Welcome, hopefully you started hopping from the TCR site, and are joining me from the amazing Steph Devlin's blog. My name is Taj and I am a RDA this month for The Color Room and I am having a ball. An

My take...

close up

Here are a few things that you may be interested in knowing about me.

1. I am from.........Jamaica, and have lived in several different cities and states. I am currently Designing for....... shimmerz, My little Shoebox,Scrappers Boutique, Scrapbook Daisies, Sketchy Thursdays, & this month TCR :)

2. I Live with.........My super awesome hubby of almost 6 years and our 3 crazy kiddos. Jeremiah 10, Madison 5 & Bailey almost 3.

3. On my desk right now you will find.......all of what you see on my layout for palette #50 and some extras that didn't make the cut ;)
4. My favourite colours to work with at the moment are........soft pinks, purples, yellow and always red. I don't have favorite color combo's really I just love color in general.
5. What kind of themes do you often scrap? I am a 100% everyday life scrapper. I like to record whatever it is that make my children unique. And yes I mainly scrap just for art sake.
6. Where do you scrap? In my scrap room which is an extra bedroom in our home. It's still being decorated. This is as far as I have gotten. I love it because it's really organzied.

7. What is your scrapping process? I usually start with product, if I am driven to use a set of papers then I am ready to go and can usually find photos to go with that. Sometimes it's the opposite and I have a photo or two I want to scrap and get the story down while it's fresh. I make myself a mini kit of embellies, paints, papers etc that I want to use and get started.
8. My favourite food is........ Ackee and salt fish (also known as cod fish) It's an Island meal. So yummy!!
9. My top 3 favourite tools are....... scissors, big shot, and corner rounder.
10. I get my inspiration from..... everywhere, other scrappers, magazines, clothes, you name it, there is some inspiration to be found.
11. Describe a Technique you used on your project this week........ since this weeks color palette is all blues with hits of grey. I used a piece of raw chipboard,inked the edges, & used a white rub on that would give the chipboard a grey look.

I thank you for hopping along with us this week and taking the time to get to know me better. Please leave your blogs in your comments as well. I would love to get to know you all better as well. And please become a follower so I can keep up with you!
Now it's time to hop on over to the crazy talented Tomoko's blog.

Sketchy Thursdays & Scrapbook Daisies

Happy March
Can you believe Feb just came and went like that? Wow, I guess what they say really is true. That after 25 it all becomes a blur Eeek!! The super exciting thing about this month is my oldest baby girl Madison turns 5. It just doesn't seem right for her to be getting so old so fast. But I am really excited for the level of maturity that is headed her way. Anywho, enough of that.

This month we have decided to shake it up a little and bring to you a sketch from one of my favorite sketchy sites out there. And I am not just saying that because I am on the team. Diana & Heidi, really rock!! Don't believe me go check it out for yourself here.
So a big THANK YOU to Diana & Heidi for providing the first sketch of the month And when you are in need of more inspiring sketches and talent be sure to head there. You'll love what you see!!

Here is your sketch...

My take...
this is For the Record from Echo Park mixed with elements of Stella Rose, & glitz.

Ok ladies it's your turn. Can't wait to see what you whip up. Click here to see what all the other Daisies have created

Happy Monday everyone!! I promised I would share some MLS fun with you I think it was Friday. Ok so I am a few days late :-)
Well I am also going to share the Scrapbook Daisies March kits with you as well. They rock!!

Let's get started with MLS...
Don't forget the DT call that's currently going on. You don't want to pass up the opportunity to design for this team. They are amazing to work with. You'll be so happy you did.
Here we go...
For the Month of Jan I got to decide on using "Cute as a Button" or a mish mash of MLS product. Ok so if you know me I went for the mish mash, right? :-)

I had fun getting crazy with all of my MLS stash.

And here are the Scrapbook Daisies March kits. Featuring "Hello Sunshine" from American Crafts (with new thickers, YEA!!). And new Pebbles inc "Happy Go Lucky". I just love the bright fun colors of both these lines.
