Some great candy up for grabs....and CHECK out Beth's work while your there!! I wanna be able to color like Beth when I grow up! ;)

So what's new in the Beaudry house you ask?? Well Kevin has moved home!!! You read it right more Tofino life for him. It's too hard for him to be away from that!....and the job is too this but with your hands tied kinda best to walk away while the going's good right??

So ask me how easy it is to get 1.5 households worth of stuff into 1 house?? IT'S NOT! LOL....yes I'm laughing :) We have compromised....for a's not been easy but we have done it. Some stuff is under the house...some is in the garden shed...some is even at my parents...but it's done. Phew.

I have been creating some cards, trying to learn new techniques and trying to catch up on 4 years worth of know...the usual....but it's fun and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'll take some pics of the cards later...for now I'm off to get inspired in blog land!

Little Journals

Morning All!!
This am I did my mostest favourite thing in the world....I crafted!!! I made two little journals.
Kimmie asked for everyone to make something using her little journal as inspiration. Since she gave us the go ahead to basically copy, that is what I did. Not that I couldn't come up with something on my own, I just liked the little journal idea!
So here is my version. I made two at once just cause I am finding it easier to make things in multiples!

Blog you later! lol

Here is my entry for a competition going on at

It is my very first ever entry into something online. I don't believe it's going to be a "judging" thing...I think everyone who enters just gets their name in the draw...I could be wrong...either way I'm happy I entered!

Off to play more ball...ladies ball starts tonight.


Sunday, July 20, 2008


I love games!! NOT headgames...bleech....but real games! My favourite game, for those that don't know me ;) is baseball. I have played since I was little....actually have to find some pictures of me playing when I was just tiny and post them! MOM...oh MOM!! lol
Yesterday I played three games. 11:00, 2:00, 5:00. That is just tooooo much ball. I am so lucky my family babied me when I got home. I hurt everywhere last night. I thought for a moment I was going to need hip replacement surgery on both hips!! Three games is a lot of running. Anyhow...we took some pictures so I'll share! ;)
Here is me up to bat...I do actually believe I am in swing motion here...can you see the ball in front of my bat? Yes it was VERY hot yesterday...tonnes of sunscreen and water was required!

Here I am eating a rice krispie square at the water park in between games...flattering picture isn't it! ;)
Kevin was able to come because the games are on the weekend! Yay!! Here he is helping Harley across the monkey kids are monkey's! Especially Zoe...that kid can swing across anything!
Zoe's turn...see what I mean...little monkey...she's cheaky too...cheaky monkey! ;)

and last but not least...Summer! She was very proud of was the first time she got all the way across! Go Summer!!

So that was yesterday! :) Today I have another game at 12:00....if my body co-operates! ;)
On the crafty front....I have got a cuttlebug!! The crafters that read this blog will know what that is...the other people that read that don't craft...well it's a tool for crafting. I just love it! It add's just that little bit extra to my world ;)
I have been asked to make some cards for "congrats" on your working on that. STILL working on the 56 bridal shower invitations....boy my girl Danielle has a lotta friends! Oh and trying inbetween all that to get a couple scrap pages done here and there.
I love love love surfing all my friends creative blogs. There is soooo much inspiration out there it boggles my mind at times....I know I know not hard to do.....I can literly be on for hours just looking because most blogs (no not mine, i'm not that technical yet) have link's to others on the then you go looking there too! yikes...time...I need more time! lol...
So here is another amazing blog I found and she has a little competition going on that I'm going to TRY and get done. I need to send in three poems (little ones I'm sure ;) with the hopes that my name is drawn in her blog candy give away....boy I would love to win those little images she has stamped! Here is her blog:
So that is it for me this am. I need to get something done before I have to head to town for ball again. Have a fabtabulous day everyone in blog land!

Playin' Hooky!!

Ok I admit it...I played Hooky today...NO WORK FOR ME!! I needed a stay at home day. Don't you find mid-week stay at home days different from the weekend?? Well I that's all that really matters! lol....

Today I made this LO for a ongoing "get your butt in gear" challenge over at

The other night I made this card. I really like the new "larger" cards that I purchased on the weekend at Michaels....just makes all the difference I enables me to put more on the card! I sure hope my friend has a hoot on his birthday! lol

The following five projects I did yesturday at my LSS (local scrapbook store) in the class I took. I enjoyed learning how to stamp onto acetate sheets.....that's the clear stuff. 4 tags and 1 decoration. Cool hey!

So the kids are playing in the yard, I'm playing inside, laundry is on the line, everyone's fed, the garden is showing potential....All is well in our little space!
Oh and my fabulous mom (wink wink...hi mom) helped Summer create her own blog yesturday....check it artistic girl (boy I love that she is artistic!) has been making her own projects and entering contests as well!!! Please check her out and give her a shout out!
Have a fabtabulous day everyone out in the online world!

Busy little B's......

That's what we are...Busy little B's....Beaudry's that is!! Here is just a sampling of what we have been up to so far this summer....

Harley helping paint the front deck.... The "Z" I altered for Zoe!
Altered canvas I made for Summer with the picture of her learning to surf in Tofino last summer.
Kevin & I camping this July long weekend with the kids and five other families at Comox Lake....we all had so much fun! This is by far my favourite picture of us!
The new greenhouse that Kevin built for me in the backyard....gonna learn to grow some enough kids to eat it ;)

Kevin water skiing on the longweekend on Comox Lake.....I learned how to pull him around finally!! But when I went to pick him up cause he was in the water I almost ran him over with the boat....kinda funny cause we had all just finished talking about life insurance :P But I killed the motor just in time so he didn't loose anything important! :)

Zoe screaming cause she's having fun or cause she wants to stop....not sure which but makes for a good picture...don't yah think?

Zoe, Eiyana, Brianna & Summer....being oh so cool in the pool!

Summer & I working on painting the deck...yes it was a family affair...who knew the little buggers could be work horses...should have tried this years ago!! lol

Well that is all the trouble we have gotten up to so far this summer....I'm sure there will be tonnes more where that came from.

Haven't heard from to many of you lately! Drop me a line sometime...catch you on the flip side of life! Cheers

I can't believe how much there is to learn about stamping......what inks to get, what cardstock, what pencil crayons, markers....ahhhhh....slowly but surely is my motto these days....oh and Yes I am enjoying the ride!
