I'm sooooo happy. I've just scrapbooked my first 11 x 8 1/2 page. It was sooo different from 12 x 12, but I'm thrilled with the outcome. Everything I used, except the ribbon, which is from Chatterbox, is from the new Neopolitan line from K & Co. I so love this line, I love the colors and the patterns, and these rub-ons are awesome. I'm off to do some cooking and laundry (yuck), then more scrapbooking. Stay tuned!
1. Sweet Home Alabama. This is the typical girl movie. We all knew from the very beginning who the girl would end up with, but our eyes were glued to the screen anyways.
2. 13 Going on 30. I have to admit that before this movie I was not really a huge fan of Jennifer Garner, but this movie changed my opinion. You've just gotta love all the great 80's references, especially the scene where everyone at the party does the "Thriller" dance.
3. Napolean Dynamite. This one is not a chick flick, but you've gotta love a story about a geek who, against all odds, has something good happen to him. The first time I watched this movie, I thought it was the dumbest thing I'd ever seen, but as you all know, you have to watch it more than once, and the more you watch it, the funnier it gets. The catch phrases from this movie are now part of my daily conversations. Here is a great link to the Napoleon soundboard where you can hear the characters repeat their sayings over and over and over.
4. Zoolander. Not really sure how I stumbled upon this one, or why I love it soo much, but it makes me laugh everytime!! I could watch it over and over and over, and I have!!! Bevan and I love it so much that when we moved in together and merged our movie collections, we actually kept both of our copies, just knowing that we are eventually going to wear one out!!
I just feel like I'm leaving out soooo many all time greats. I'm also a huge fan of The Wizard of Oz, Return to Oz, Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, Adventures in Babysitting, etc., etc. My favorite thing to do is turn on any one of these movies in my scrapbook room and just sit and make a card or do a layout. Anyways, enough blogging, I'm off to the grocery store (super craving Lasagna lately), then back here to scrapbook!! Have a great day!!

I think I'll get going now and try to get some stuff done. It's just sooo hard to clean when you could be scrapbooking.

The "Smile" card is my favorite. I love the bright colors and the buttons!! I got some pictures back yesterday, so hopefully I'll get to do some fun scrapbook layouts in the next few days. Michelle has sent me her pictures from our trip to NYC. She got some great pictures, and some that I don't have. Everytime I see those pictures it inspires me to scrapbook. I've gotten 3 NYC pages done so far I think.
In other news: I miss Frankie!!! She is just the cutest puppy ever. Mel said she is growing soooo fast, and I just feel like I'm missing it. I've decided I need a little weiner dog of my very own, but we just can't get one where we live now. No pets allowed :( Plus, I can't get one until I think of a clever weiner dog name like Mel has: Frankie "The Tank" Chickenweiner Burton. Anyways, better get going!! Gotta get to work!

Bevan and I headed back to PEI on Friday (the 30th). The weather was warm, so we knew we wouldn't hit any snow and decided it would be the best day to head back. We've been here for 3 days now and our house is very slowly getting put in order. We had to buy a new shelf to house our DVD collection. For New Years we had a wonderful, relaxing, quiet evening.
Today my goal was to start simplifying. I have sooooo much crap that has to be weeded through. We already have a half of a garbage bag of papers to be recycled. I have about half of the laundry done. I've yet to get to the scrapbooking room, and that is quite a job in itself. I would love to get it all done before tomorrow so I can enjoy my last day of my month long vacation, but that's probably wishful thinking. I'm trying to stay optimistic though!! Anyways, I'm not really getting anything done while I sit here typing, so I'm going to get off my butt and get back to work. Pictures to follow soon!!
