Scrapper Bowl 2013 Avatar Game: 49ers v. Ravens

Ok Ladies, this year the San Francisco 49ers will face the Baltimore Ravens at this year's Super Bowl! To kick off our own Scrapper Bowl, let's show our support for them!

To particiapate in this challenge, you need to "pimp" out your avatar with the team YOU will be cheering for! Post a reply to this thread by February 2, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. EST with your team pick! We will complete the list of supporters for each team and randomly pick winners from the list for the that:

 Now I don't really have a preferences in which team wins. So I chose 49er's... and this is gonna sound totally girly... but it was because of the colors lol. I live in arkansas and LOVE the razorbacks... now be nice I know we kinda suck this year. So the 49er's colors are kinda close to ours.. so I chose them . Here's my avatar I came up with.
  So another weekend of funness (is that a word? oh well) ... well sunday anyways lol
By the way scraporchard has some great daily challenges on their forum. you can find them here  . Ive started doing them again and they are really fun.

Well im off to be a productive adult.... well maybe .. I may just scrapbook or do some crafts. lol 

Have a magical day!

Beginning again!

wow! It has been sooo long since I have blogged. So many things have happened.
...But life goes on and I have decided to restart blogging. There are soo many things I want to share,
and soo little time lol.
guess I will start with scrapbooking.... I love scrapbooking! My hubby asked me last night while I was doing my daily downloads from Gotta pixel, gingerscraps, divine digitals (sadly they are closing their doors feb. 28, 2013), scrapping fairytales, & pixel scrapper. ... how many scrap stuff do you really need? It all looks the same too me.... HAHAHA, ahh husbands. lol No honey they are all different and I need them ALL, I said .

In the post most of the layouts I have done is for disney stuff. The challenges at MOUSESCRAPPERS seem to get my butt in gear and get layouts done. I just completed the speed scrap marathon on the weekend of the 18th

I finished all of them! I was so proud of myself. For those of you that have never participated in one, this is how it is done. You get 7 instructions on how to do your layout... one instruction every 10 minutes . Then you have to have the layout done within a predetermined set of time and posted in the right gallery... and of course leave love!
Here's my layouts...















Okay these are not in order as this is a new blogger setup I can't figure it out right now.. must investigate! lol But as you can see I was busy and having fun! you can go to my gallery here to see the credits for these awesome kits I used .

Now I forgot to mention that these speed scraps each came with participation prizes if the requirements were made (following the directions and posting on time). These ladies are just awesome and extremely generous!  here's what was offered...

Pretty great right? Well it wasn't over yet. Because I completed the whole marathon I  received the gold for you grab bag... it was around 500 mb of  Disney goodness! There was also a posting love game ...
Get into the gallery . The gallery is over-flowing with awesome pages. For this game I want you to head over to the gallery and leave some meaningful comments for your fellow scrappers.
The amazing Wendy from Neverland Scraps is offering a fabulous incentive for you to get into the gallery. She is donating the following:
75 - 100 comments, you'll receive a $2.00 coupon from her store
250 - 349 comments, you'll receive a $4.00 coupon from her store
over 350 comments, you'll receive a $6.00 coupon from her store
The computer will keep track of your comments... You need to post your starting number in this thread and come back at the end and post your final number.

Guess how much love I posted.....  my posts were 163 starting... ending count 565!!!!! thats a total of 402 comments!!!!
Wanna know what I got with my amazing coupon? 

You can find Neverlands shop here . you can find her facebook here . And you can find her Blog here.

But were not done with neverland scraps just yet.... lol
There was a game #4 recognizing our designers. you could look through there stores and post one item that is your favorite... and you could possibly win it.... Well last night I got a private message from neverland scraps telling me I had won my kit!!!! Yeah how cool is that? ..sooo the kit that I had chose is...
Christmas memories!!! I LOVE the colors, and those frames are too die for, aren't they? I just really want to say a big THANK YOU! to wendy from neverland scraps, this was awesome to have won something.

I also wanted to say a thank you to all the designers that helped out and made the mousescrappers speed scrap marathon such a big hit...
