*happy cupcakes* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all...

Today was a good day and a bad day....since I am one NOT to dwell on the bad....I will tell U the good my dear friends Marit and Sharmaine BOTH awarded me with this! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

With this award I am to tell U 10 things that make me happy... soooooooo here we go :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
1 - My kids :)
2 - My friends (IRL ones and my online ones) :)
3 - Scrapping :)
4 - My doggy :)
5 - Sleeping :) (Which YES i do sleep....I know I have been accused before that I don'!) :)
6 - Finding Vintage Kodak cameras :)
7 - Finding little things that I just know will be the perfect surprise gift for someone :)
8 - My family :)
9 - That I am employed :)
10 - For the chance I had to go to CHA and meet so many people that I feel I have known forever :)

I am supposed to award this to others....but *sigh* I can NEVER decide who to give it too...soooooooooo please....if U are reading this...please take it...because it is all of U that make me HAPPY too! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Now the bad part of my day....*sigh* why oh why do people have to make rude comments about others publicly? I just don't get it.... I have never cut anyone down on any public forum or for that matter anywhere on the internet...I just think its just plain mean....yep...I'm talking about me...someone today decided to do a little blog post and gave me a jab in the heart while they were at it....*sigh* I'm not gonna tell U who...I'm not gonna tell U what....some might "find" it, read it, know its about me....see the little "love" comment at the end and think...."awwwwwwwwww but they still love julie"  when someone says rude things about someone and then places a "love" comment at the end of it...that is usually them being a little sarcastic so that peeps think they are joking....sad, but true.  sooooooo there U have it. that is why part of my day was bad.  I don't appreciate being talked about in a negative way.... and i don't do that to I don't understand why peeps must do it to me..... does that make sense?? :):):)

Ok....enough of that lol lol...i had to get that off my chest....sooooooo thanks for letting me vent :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

How about some craftiness??????? Here is a little wall hanging and a lo that I made using a kit!! loved this kit! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)




And here are the LO's I created and took to CHA with me using some of Nikki Sivils newest lines...."Dan the Record Man" and "Bella Blue and Oscar too" :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Seriously YUMMY papers! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

 This is ME (on the right in the red) and Brookie (on the left in the pink) both swinging with our cousins....30 years apart! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

 This is Sarah and Gloria's doggy MAUI! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

 This is my Aunt Pat's late doggy (Yes! Aunt Pat...U will be getting this LO sent to U!) :):):):):):):):):):)

My Mr. Dandy! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

My friend Krista's dog Davis! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

The ever rockin' DEANA! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

 The ever popular Brookie! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):)

 And the ever popular Brookie again dancing away!! :):):):):):):):):):)

And Hanneke...I didn't get a chance yet to do a lo with your doggy....ran out of time before CHA...but I will be very soon and I will be using Nikki's lines for it too! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


  1. wth?! anyone who wants to pick on my julie is such a lame-o?! seriously, don't even worry about it!!! just know that others LOVE you, and that i luv ya... and that's really all that should matter. :)

    and thank you so much for the maui LO. it's in my special "created for sarah" album! :)

    ...oh, and LOVE that LO of deana. wasn't that when her and gloria were drinking too much wine!? lol.

  2. holy cr*p, how many layouts did you make? You're some kind of wonder woman! And they are ALL gorgeous! Cupcakes huh, did ya catch my blog tonight by chance, pretty funny! Cupcakes rock.
    Okay, Jules Jules Jules.... let that crap roll off you. Remember what I said about haters? You MUST be doing something RIGHT! lol
    Don't let one negative cancel out all the positives! Keep smiling, that kills 'em every time!!!!!love you!!!!!!!!!

  3. What??? I don't understand people like that either!!! Good for you and staying positive... you could have totally put it out there saying who, etc... but you took the high road and that is all that matters!!! Wow... those layouts are just amazing!!! You rock!!!

  4. Awesome layouts!! Love your list, and I'd just say to hell with whoever wants to put you down or say negative things with you, b/c you know you are a good person and have a good heart! And you know they are probably just jealous of you b/c they are probably just a miserable, unhappy person! I love you and the wonderful person you are:) Love, Jess and seriously I mean LOVE when I say it!!

  5. awww sweety, I'm sorry some people are mean. Sending a happy hug to you!!!

    I love your scrappy work, you sure make it look fun and easy.

  6. love that wall hanging, and don't listen to the haters!

  7. Just love that wallhanging - the sequins are so cool - and all the pupper layouts - just too cute!! I wish I could say that whoever you are talking about is an only but unfortunately I think we have all run across some very nasty people in our lives (and that includes scrapping). We love you! Don't let whoever get you down - life is too short for jerks to spoil it!

  8. awww Julie breaks my heart to read that post you are one of the sweetest gals I have met blogging....shame on them!
    Love love love your do you do it?!
    As Pinky has taught me "let 'em go!" and hang on to your roots...have you seen the video?

  9. omg, im so sorry about the person that made the nasty comment!! I still don't get how ANYONE could ever say anything mean about you! :( I know it's just cause they're jealous. People with low self esteem get off on putting other people down and hurting their feelings. :( Even though we all know that, I know how much it hurts! Remember that there are TONS more of us that ADORE you so so much! If I knew how that person was I'd love to give them a piece of my mind!

    On a happier note, I LOVE all of your new layouts! You have made me want to buy every single bit of Nikki's new CHA release! :)

  10. boo to mean people.

    your los are so awesome - i love the one with Brookie gettin jiggy!!!! she is so cute. but you already knew that. ;)

  11. So hate that when people do sorry Julie!But we all do love you and that's what matters right!
    I just love your!They are all that one for love with your clouds Julie!
    You ROCK!!!

  12. It is much more important what you think of yourself than what others think of you, especially unkind words, you are a wonderful person with a good heart, even we haven't met, I think you only good be a better person when I have met you! And I think we will one day!
    Your work is gorgeous, as always the first one, stole my heart, it is breathtaking!

  13. Love love love that wall hanging. Fabulous layouts too. Don't worry about the negatives in life. xx

  14. WOWWWWWWWww Julie!!!!I love all of your layouts, especially the first!!!You rock!!!!!!!

  15. That's oké Julie, take your time!!!See that is why I don't understand people are beeing mean to you, you are the sweetest EVER!!! Wouldn't be suprised if that is out of jalousy!!!

    Looooove all the LO's, all the doggies look so cute (did the dutch ladies buy that line?) And I love the dancing Brookie one, so cool!!! And Deana what can I see, looking pretty as ever!!!

    Have a great weekend!!!
    Big hug!!!

  16. Wowza many LO's did you amaze me!!! Can you send me some of your MOJO and Creativity!!!!

    Congrats on your award....Marit sent it to me tooooo and that just made me feel HAPPY!!! :-)

    Just my opinion......but when people act rude...IGNORE....for it is on them Julie.....not you.....there must be something missing in their life if they find the time to be nasty...Stand Tall....knock it off your shoulder and just continue being YOU!!!!

    Wishing you a great day!!!

  17. Don't let it get to you. People sometimes lose sight of themselves. Its horrible they don't think how that will make the other person feel and it will be taken.

    I love all the layouts. That wall hanging is fab!!! You rocked that kit. Very cute.

    Have a great Thursday!

  18. Wow, look at all of these fabulous layouts! The Jiggy one is awesome! lol Love the sequins on the wall hanging, woo hoo! lol

    Why people feel the need to be rude at all but to do it publicly, whatever. I'm sorry this happened to you!

  19. Don't worry on that awfull comment, there are so many people who adore you and that one person is so not worth it! So, chin up and enjoy en be proud girl!
    Totally adore your layouts, they are wonderful! *big hugs*

  20. Oooooh, I choose that one layout with Brookie running through a field as my fave out of the gallery, not even knowing it was made by you!!! LOVE IT JULIE!!! And you deserve the happy award girl!

  21. Oh I am so very sorry you were not treated kindly. This has happened to me in the past and it generally just is about that person being jealous of you.

    Also word to the wise, start placing a watermark on all of your photos of your design work (scrapbookin, etc.) so it doesn't show up in a magazine as someone else's.

    I take comfort in that what you put out into the world will come back to you tenfold. Someone in blog land is in for some bad karma. Chin up!

  22. So sorry you're day has not been perfect. I don't understand why anyone would want to hurt you, you are so harmless and sweet for crying out loud!! I will be picking up that award to do on my blog so thank you very much! I love answering questions people may not know about me. Have a great day Julie! And smile!

  23. love your layouts Julie! sorry about the comment-mean people suck. I always think that sarcastic people lack courage-just say what you mean, mean what you say and don't hide behind "just kidding" No one is perfect but if nothing else-let's have good manners right? have a good day!

  24. Love all the sweet layouts!!
    And wtf is up with people picking on you?? Seriously people, Julie would do anything for anyone! If you don't have something nice to say about her, BE QUIET!!!!!!!

    Hey Julie- I love you!!! :)

  25. I totally don't understand people like that either. Sorry you have to deal with them :(

    But, on a happy note, HOLY CRAP that is a load of awesome layouts!!! There is no way I could ever pick a favorite. Although, the Getting Jiggy is pretty darn hilarious! What a little ham Miss Brookie is :)

  26. I never get why people have to be that way. Anyway focus on all the good people out there. I LOVE all your scrapbook layouts, fantastic. So happy to meet you. Catherine x

  27. love your list!
    I hope you can get past that person's rude comment, that is just mean and I don't understand people like that!
    love all the layouts, especially the dog's, since I don't have kids I scrap a lot of pics of my dogs and love to see when other people do dog pages as well.
    love your work!

  28. Yay! I finally get to see all your CHA LO's! Cute, cute, cute! And, no Sarah... I was not drinking TOO MUCH wine that night. Gloria was. LOL! :-)

    Hope I get my box of goodies soon, I'm especially excited about that Dan Dan the Record Man line! Too fun!

    I ♥ your "happy list," too!


  29. I really don't think you do sleep!!! There's not enough time in the day for you to do all of these wonderful things girl!!!

    As for the mean person---why is it that paper, pictures, and glue can bring out the ugly side????

    Don't let it hurt you too bad sweetie!! Kill em' with kindness!!!

  30. I sooooooooo feel for you, Julie. I hear ya on this one...some people just do not think about others and their feelings. I know it first hand~unfortunately...Though mine is family. It sure does hurt. Please let it fly off your shoulders and know that alot of us think the world of you...You are awesome and my first ever blog friend. So thank you for being you! Awesome LO's by the way. I am loving the record one with
    Brookie dancing. Have a super night! Smiles...Tammy

  31. I hate when people are rude and hurtful to others. Just know that there are a lot of us out here who support you!
    Love the layouts, too:)

  32. You are SO amazing!!
    Can't get past that wall hanger, THAT IS GOBSMACKIN' GOOD!!!!!!!

  35. Holy Moly!! Fantastical LOs!! the cousins one is awesome, and the getting jiggy is so funny!!

  36. wow - you're work is simply eyecatching!!
    greetings from germany!! :)

  37. Just great layout Missy J2 as always. Like many have said don't let the cr@p get to you.

    Love you heaps.
    Julie xx

  38. Congrats on the award Julie, you deserve it. I can't imagine anyone saying anything bad about you ... we've all gotten to know you as a warm, loving, caring person who never fails to leave a kind comment to others ... I know I appreciate the time you spend making others (me me me LOL) feel better about themselves, and I love you for it. People can be mean, it's a fact of life unfortunately, what can we do about it? It's easy to say don't let it get to you, and you shouldn't really, but it's not that easy, right?
    On a brighter side ... I don't believe a word you're saying, you can't possibly sleep and still have time to create all the yumminess LOL!!! I especially love that last one, Brookie's too cute!
    Hugs and kisses xxx Peggy

  39. Damn Girl!!!!!!!! Where on earth do you get the time and energy to complete so many lo's and still have time to post and comment on all your friends blogs? No seriously! I'm totally convinced by now that you have scrappy superpowers!!!!!!! And all of your lo's are so beeeoootiful too! Wish I had even a pinch of your mojo!!! I'm struggling to complete the 2 half made Chrismas lo's that's been lying on my table for a month now :(

    Anyways - have fun - not that I really need to tell you that, hey?!

  40. Ooooh!! what a wonderful parade of LO's!! I couldnt wait to get to each one!! Sooooo delightful!

    You are a shining star Julie!!! Keep shining the way you do!

  41. You *new* page looks awesome........Love it!!!!!

  42. Julie....You are one amazing woman and if someone is saying bad things....I think....They are mean and jealous. Please don't let it get you down. You know who your real friends are and all the others don't matter. Hugs, Amy

    P.S. Love, Love, Love your layouts!

  43. I was thinking of you on Friday when I saw a fellow student wearing a shirt that said, "Be nice to me or I'll crop you out of my photo's."

    Hee hee.

  44. MEAN PEOPLE SUCK!!!!! Enuf said!!!!!!!!

    These layouts so ROCK!!!!! You go chicky!!!!

  45. yeah, that is BS!!!!!! I am not getting why anyone would talk bad about you.
    I loVE LOVE LOVE all your projects, though.
    and your new blog look is killer cool!
    I am about to email you.

  46. You are such a creative legend in my life. I have a blog award fro you. I am sure you have received this award before. I love you and wanted you to have it again. check out my blog!

  47. Love your blog post at Blue Moon Scrapbooking!! You rock my friend!! I am just so happy we got to meet each other, even if only for a short time!!! Love Ya girl!!!

  48. Dear Julie, why do 'they' always do this????
    Please, stay possitive and concentrate on the people who really love you!! There are soooo many of them!!!!

    Those layouts are wonderful, just like you!!

    Big hug, Jenneke

  49. I can't possibly see how anyone could say anything nasty about you. You truly are one of the most upbeat, optimistic people I know! In this thing we call life....people can really put their focus and energy on the wrong things. So petty really. Don't let it get you down...for the one negative comment you probably have hundreds of positive ones! Focus on those! Love your scrappy pages! HUGS!

  50. Grrr. That aggravates me. Totally concur with Sarah -- anyone that would pick on you is lame. Love you -- and not in the nasty sarcastic way. :)

    But, I will try to mimic my sweet Julie by dwelling on the positive. I love your layouts. Cute, cute pups! And yes, Deana does indeed rock.

  51. What the heck is this... you're the sweetest thing EVER... bottom line it's just jealousy... wishing they were as sweet and as talented as you... CUZ YOU ARE!!! I love you ans so do others... just keep doing what you're doing... because... YOU'RE GRRRRRRRRRREAT!!!

    As for the lo's... love love love them... the doggies... wow... Rainee went bonkers over them!!! too too cute!!! the deana lo... cute cute cute... and well what else is there to say about the lo's of Brookie... SIMPLY ADORABLE!!!! the get jiggie makes me laugh... thanks for sharing you wonnderful talent with us!!!
    {{hugs}} Michelle
