Martha and Mookie

I still am shocked about Martha's Blueprint magazine being cancelled!! But I will hopefully get over it in time:)
Despite my sadness and slight grudgings I was inspired by one of her ads for a scrapbook page. What sort of things inspire you lately? Sometimes I am surprised at the random things that get my creative juices flowing.

Nothing too crazy is going on at our home...

Our dog keeps running off like a wild pimp and spent the night in an animal shelter. The ladies can't resist Mookie's smoldering stare and how he 'shakes his tail feather' as he struts down the street!!
We need to obey the wise words from Bob Barker on The Price is Right and get him fixed.
In other news...
Collin started training for a triathlon with his Dad.

Avery would watch the Little People DVD over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over if I let her.

I am so excited-Houston CKC here I come!!

How did you hear about Blueprint being cancelled? I just ordered it a couple of months ago and have loved it so far. They havent sent anything about it yet.

Love the lo!

Debbie,
Crazy huh? An editor at CK sent me this link

it's an article from Wall Street Journal and they announced it on the Blueprint blog in early December. So sad!!!!

I came across your blog, and I just had to comment. My daughter looks close in age to Avery (my daughter is 21 months), and she would watch Little People all day, everyday, too, if I would let her. "Mama . . . Peet-l" is what I hear all day long! lol My boys liked it, too, when they were that age. Loved your LO, too!

We are experiencing the same repetition in our house..."Letter Factory" to the millionth degree!

Too bad there is no CKU in California this year...any word on why?? I would offer my backyard for the big event...Anything to attend!

Not so sure Lisa would be hip on that idea!

My 2 1/2 year old LOVES the Little People movie too. While traveling during the holidays we were so sick of hearing it in the car that we listened to it in the other languages and she still loved it.

How can they cancel blue print, such a fine magazine with so many crappy ones on the shelves for so long!!!! urggggghhhhhh

lexsmama said...

No more blueprint magazine, NO! That's not good at all. I'm sorry. :-(

I'll be at CKC on the 19th! I'm not taking any classes, but my hubby got me passes for the floor. I'm all kinds of excited. Maybe I'll bump into you. Hope you have a safe trip.

Good luck to Collin and his dad. I bet they'll do great.

Hadn't heard about Blueprint - what a bummer!

Great layout though, Girly!

Jenn said...

Do you print your own pics? I'd like to develop/print smaller pics like you did on your 'makes me happy' lo.

elizabeth said...

Yes, I printed those smaller prints at home. Jenn, let me know if you need help with that.

Pamela said...

I love your "makes me happy" layout...very cute. I need to do a page with that theme.

Jess Perry said...

Love the scrapbook page. I can't wait to see you Thursday! Are you still planning on coming up for Book club?

Ingunn said...

I must have missed this whole post! First of all, LOVE the layout!!

Second - they're CANCELLING Blueprint?? Aaaaargh!!!

Jenn said...

elizabeth,
i would love to know what you use. i just recently found out that Photoshop elements isn't as difficult as i had first thought... i hear the printing options there are flexible. what do you use? and what printer? the quality of mine isn't up to par (since i'll be doing more printing at home now).

CD said...

well, although you may have grudgings about the cancelled mag, your layout is adorable!!! So ......HAPPY! LOL.

Happy New Year to you :)

I was looking at scrapbooking sites and came across your blog. We went to school together (canyon crest--timpview) Anyway, your layouts are great. I work at Martha Stewart, and just wanted to let you know that blueprint content will be in the wedding magazine, on her t.v show and on the blueprint blog
