Glue Glider Pro!!!!! Adhesive gun......

I was at Ivy's (my friends) house one Saturday scrapbooking and she showed me this awesome adhesive gun. It looks like a mini ATG gun. It is so cute and it's so easy to use and it's refillable. I fell in LOVE with it. I was planing on getting one at our local scrapbook store but then I got an e-mail from Our Daily Bread Designs an on-line store. And they are having it on sale right now plus the refills.

You can order the Glue Glider Pro for 25% OFF for the rest of the week. The sales ends this Saturday!!!! When you add it to your shopping cart the sale price will show up there. :)

Our Daily Bread Designs is one of my favorite online stamping stores right now. They have so many Bible scripture based stamps, it's AWESOME!!! :) So if you are looking for some Faith based stamps I recommend this store. Go check them out!!!!!

This is what the gun looks like...

Lita's sketch #3...

I finally got to do Lita's sketch #3. It's an awesome sketch and I see my self using it many more times. I had so much fun doing this layout. I even journaled and posting the layout with that journaling here.... so that means that you'll see my hand writing and non fixed or checked spelling... LOL :)

You can find the sketch here.

Paper layout:

Life is a Beach cricut cartridge. Crab, fish, sun and sand dollar.
Accent Essential cartridge. The circles, it's all one shape.
I had cut out before some sun's from the Life is a Beach cartridge and used the template the negative that was left from the sun and stamped it over with some yellow and orange ink pad on top of the white card stock.
The sun, I had painted with some orange Making Memories liquid acrylic paint. Cut two of them in 1/2 and layered on top of each other and put some start dust stickles on top.

Here is the close up of the sun with stickles..

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it. :)

It is so sad and hard to see friends move away!!!

And we had to do that this week end. We said our "See ya later and we will miss you!" this passed Sunday to one of our most dearest friends. Brian and Jennifer and their kids have been a BLESSING to our family and our Church. But with tears on our faces we had to say Goodbye to them. I had prayed (I know that many have prayed the same prayer) that they would stay here in Hawaii. But God and military had a different plan for them. I know that it is God's will that they had to go... But it is still so hard to say that Goodbye! I get teary eyed just typing this out.

This week I got to scrapbook almost every day, during the day and some nights till 3am. I was determined that I was going to get a scrapbook album done for them before they go. I should have started it along time ago, but I'm such a procrastinator and I work so much better under pressure... LOL :) I am done with Volume 1 and need to start on Volume 2 now. I'm so glad that God had helped me to finish the album. I prayed on Friday before I started working on some pages that He would help me finish as much as I could, that He would send some creativity and take this scrappers block away... and He did. He did it because He is an AWESOME God!!!!

I was able to present the book to them on Sunday night after our Church service. From their face expressions I think they LOVED it... :) that does good to my heart! Even thought I already miss them terribly!!!!

I thank God for giving us such great friends. Friends that are more than just friends they are family and I pray that we will see each other again.

I did not keep track of what I used. I was working as fast as I could between going to camp, taking care of the kids, house and so on and on. But I did use A LOT of swap sets. So if you see one that you did PLEASE claim it!!!! All of the sets are beautiful, Thank you to those that were in my swap groups!!!! It was so much faster to do this album having these swap sets, it would have taken me twice as longer to finish the album if I didn't have them. Anyways, if you see your set please PLEASE take full credit for it and Thank you for coming up with such a beautiful set!!! :)

And here are the layouts that I did... I scrapbooked pictures during the 3 years that they were here. I also did 2 double pages spreads for friends and members of our Church to sign the book and leave their wishes and goodbyes for our friends.

So here are the pages that I did for this book.... Volume 1.....

My take on Lita's first Sketch....

***Don't forget you can click on the pictures to make them bigger!!! ***

I was at a friends house yesterday till about 1 am, I think... all I remember is that it was pass midnight when I was starting to pack up... The kids were tired they fall asleep right away in the car on our drive home.

But we had a lot of fun at Mrs. Ivy's house... :) She was scrapbooking away. I think she did about 2 or 3 (maybe more) two page spreads. While I forgot the projects that I was going to work on at home. But lucky me I grabbed some single photos off the table right before I left the house. So I decided to use those photos and do Lita's sketch sense I was planing on doing that anyways.

So here is my take on it. I did 2 layouts using Lita's sketch #1. You can find it here.

The first layout is of me and our oldest daughter when she was one year old.

I stamped the white accent peace with some swirl stamps all the way around.

Accent Essentials cartridge for the main accent on the page. Size 8 1/2 I think and then the shadow.
Plantin SchoolBook for the title. Size 1 inch.



Chipboard shapes.

Tearing tool from CM.
Swirl clear stamp set by Autumn Leaves.

Scraps of Scrapbook paper that Ivy had... Thanks Ivy for letting me go through your scraps... :)

The second layout is of my dear niece and nephew. I miss these munchkins... :)

I raised the tops of the mushrooms by stamping another mushroom with another color and just cutting out the top part and then used some of the foam tape to raise them up. I LOVE the mushrooms, I so need to get that stamp set.

Mini Monograms cartridge the scalloped circle.
Plantin SchoolBook cartridge for title, size 2 1/2 inches.

Pooh and Friends cartridge for the tree size 3 /12 inch tall.
CTMH Whooo Loves You! Stamp set
CTMH Nature Walk stamp set.
CTMH varies ink pads.

Colored pencils.

Ivy's scraps of papers.

Thanks for looking and I hope you liked my take on this sketch. Be sure to come back to Lita's blog for another sketch on July 25th. Can't wait to see that one!!!!
