Craft Table

I'm taking a cue from Tammy's Blog . I to went to Target.com and i found this craft table. I just love the height and size. But tell me this, why is it that you have to buy everything separate?? It just gets soooo expensive when you start adding the separate components, my goodness. Uhhhh Dad?? Can you please build me something like this, pleeeaaassse!! I wonder.....hmmmmm.

U.S. Citizen

Finally!! I applied for U.S. Citizenship back in July 2007 and now just over a year I finally completed the whole process. Yesterday at the Los Angeles Sports Arena I took my oath as a U.S. Citizen. There were about 5,200 people being sworn in that morning. It was madness. My friend Cathi made me the greatest red velvet cupcakes with butter cream frosting....yummmmmm...in celebration of this event.

Rough Draft Sketch

Here's a great new sketch blog that i found www.roughdraft.blogspot.com. They're new and they're putting out a call for a DT, so here's my take on their sketch. It's an 80's Crop that i had with friends and family. We went all out and had a blast.

Paper Drama

Hey guys, as you can see I changed my blog name to "Paper Drama". I thought it was fitting with all the "drama" out there in our scrapbook world. There are 2 types of paper drama: 1) Fabulous Paper Drama - the anticipation of a new product line, the excitement and joy one feels when they find a certain paper that one can't live without, finishing a scrap project that you can't wait to share with others, basically all the happy happy joy joy feelings that are associated with scrapping..............................and then there's 2) Ugly Betty Paper Drama - this is all the sneaky, backhanded dealings that mean people do. For all you scraplifters out there, you know who you are (including me) make sure you compliment that person and let them know that they inspired you to do something similar. Honestly don't try to pass something off that isn't your idea, that's just not cool, that's soooooo Ugly Betty Paper Drama!!! I believe in "Sharing is Caring". Playing with paper is suppose to be fun and lighthearted, let's keep it that way.

All in all my blog is to promote Fabulous Paper Drama, not the other one. I want to share my ideas and the people who inspire me. So bring on the drama...the fabulous kind!

You Whoo!!

For those who are obsessed with owls like me, i found this cute little owl video on youtube. Pretty neat if you had all those punches or be crafty and find another way to make it with similar tools already in your scrap arsenal. Have fun.

SD Expo or BUST!!!

Well I survived the San Diego Scrap Expo. Did you? Budget...what budget? The picture you see here is NOT all my stuff. I spent the weekend with my sister and my cousins down in SD. What you see is a modge podge of all the stuff we bought. I know, crazy huh? I particularly loved this cute owl chipboard album, which ended up being my "staz-on moment". For more details on what actually is a "staz-on moment", visit my sister's blog "i don't give a scrap!", click on the blog title or click on the link under my 'favorite places'. Going back to my blog title, the SD Expo was not a bust at all, but my bank account begs to differ.
So tell me, what did you buy AND did you have a "staz-on moment"? I would like to hear from you guys.

Grilled Mexican Corn on the Cob "Elote"

Cravings, do you ever get them? Well I certainly did over this past Labor Day weekend, hanging out with my cousins for the San Diego Scrap Expo (will upload pics soon). We were just casually talking about certain foods we love, this was what I was craving, corn on the cob smothered with mayonaise and seasoned with pepper, and is that cheese I see? YUMMMMMM. The next day my cousin Ray posts this on his photoblog. Just looking at this makes my mouth water. Check out his awesome pics to your left under "My Favorite Places" - Ray Yoro
