I do have one disc that thankfully Mat copied to clear up space a few months back and Lily's birth and first Christmas is on there. I am so thankful for that.
So no crafts today just a rant. Word to the wise, copy your pics to disc or backup your files.
I'll post about my workshop tmr and have pics of my project, this hullabaloo took the wind out of my sails a bit today.
Ok so after spending the entire trying to fix all my progams and such DH comes to take a look because he was watching football and finds all the pictures!!!!!!! Of course I have bow to him and chant that he's the world's greatest husband but he did it! Now I am hoping when he comes home later because he just left to go watch the late game at his buiddies that he can recover all my Itunes downloads that I had too! Only problem left is that my HP photo printer will not reinstall. Something is wrong in an EXE file which is Greek to me but Dh says if they reboot Windows it should fix it...OY!!! What a mess but I just want to tell everyone that left me love that I appreciate YOU ALL SO MUCH! Thanks for being there for me in my panic! Ok...back to trying to save all my bookmarks again.

I am off to my Master's class at Prima Marketing and I am SO excited. I looked it up on Map Quest and just as I figured it's about an hour from here. I am dropping Scott off at his dad's house first for vacation. I will miss him but I know he is really looking forward to seeing his dad for a good stretch.
Have a great Saturday and go create something!

First up is my submission for the Hip Hop Challenge, Don't distress, distress with Unity challenge. I love this paper. I distressed all the edges of the cardstock and made my own accent with a floral pin using a stamp from the fanciful dots set. It kind of looks like a peppermint candy huh!
Next is the Unity Christmas Pie Color challenge, for this one you had to use the color cream and brown and then whatever filling you like. I used Unity's fanciful dots to wallpaper my cardstock and Wish Sticks
This next item is a little project I started a few years ago to save all my holiday cards in from year to year. The size is 8 1/2 X 11 and I used Unity's Trinity trio stamp for a little festive decor. I made the pocket from patterned cardstock and scalloped the top. I used staple to secure it to the white card stock. you simply slide the card inside the pocket and then I put them in my scrapbook clear page protector.
Next up is a card I made for Ashley's Etsy inspired challenge she does weekly. Check it out here on her blog, she's a sweetie! I used Loopy flowers from Unity's Oh Happy Day set. I chose these earrings as my inspiration
Here's my card
Last but not least I get to show you Christmas gift I am making my DH's cousins who are both in their 20's. We had to make gifts this year for our friends and family so I was tryinf to come up with unique ideas. I picked up these wooden unfinished boxes at Michaels for 2 for 1.00 and painted them with making memories paint which dries super fast! Then I used clear modge podge to seal them and embellish. Finally I stamped images from Unity's Flirty Flowers and Oh happy day set. I then embossed the carstock and stamped an additional flower and cut it out and popped it off the card over the stamped image with a foam dot and added bling. I think this gift turned out really nice. I know I would enjoy it as a present.
So that's it for today. Thanks for sticking with my long post today! i really enjoyed each of these projects. Last but not least, I am really excited that Saturday I will be attending a Master's class at Prima Marketing in Chino, Ca. I found out thru the Prima blog I follow that they hold classes at their site and I was totally excited to be able to attend. It's about a 45 mins drive but so worth it. So Monday I will have my completed project to show off! We're doing a mini album and afterwards you can stay and crop and shop. Hmmm...that could spell trouble for my hubs pocketbook.
Anyway a huge hug to my hubbs who gave me the class for my Christmas gift this year early of course. I luv you babe!

Here's another take on the Hero Arts Stamp I have been using for Christmas cards. I got the red and gold paper as gift wrap at my Mommy Christmas get together and knew when I saw it that I could use it for cards. I also got the poinsettia flowers for .89 a bundle at Michaels and then rubbed glue on the petals and sprinkled them with glitter to dress them up!

Today I got my Unity Addicts challenge completed. It's the last one for the year. I can hardly believe that this year is drawing to a close. This week's challenge was a monochromatic card. Here's my take, sorry for the bad pic but there is no sun here today :( We have a storm coming this way today and it's very cold and gloomy outside.
That's it for today, don't forget about the Hip Hop tmr at Unity Stamps. Join us in the Splitcoast forum here and let us know if it's your first Hip Hop. So much fun!!!
