Some Paper Pages

I went to a friends house a couple weeks ago to scrap and got three whole pages done. I'm only going to post 2 of them because I really hate the 3rd one. It was based on a PageMap sketch and the sketch was much better than the actual page! LOL!

Anyway here is the first and my favorite. The photo is of my oldest when he wasn't quite a year old so it's almost 12 years old here since he's 12 1/2! Credits can be found here:

and the second one is of my friend Amy's daughter and her very furry bunny. I took these photos while I was in TX. Credits can be found here:

I swore I would be doing all kinds of scrapping with all this time off and that's all I've done! Amazing huh?

Sah-weeet Stuff

So many things so little money! My very favorite digi store is Sweet Shoppe Designs. I love the designers there and they have some very fun challenges where you can earn points towards a discount coupon in the store each month. I always shoot for the highest 40% because it means I can buy so much more! ;) I am also very lucky to be on creative teams for Traci Reed, Heather Roselli and Shawna Clingerman who all sell at SSD so that helps me get even more awesome designs. Being laid off I can't shop right now but I can drool! Here are a few of the things I'm drooling over right now:

This fun collab by Lauren Grier & Gina Miller Called Amy Lou:

Is it Any Wonder by Robin Carlton and ScrapKitchen Designs

Love Shack by Robin Carlton, Christy Lyle and MandaBean

And tomorrow when the new releases come out my wish list will get even longer!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Prayers and Thoughts for a Friend

My friend Lesley is having surgery today to move a cancerous lump from her breast. Lesley has the most wonderful personality and is one of the funniest people I know and she has kept up her sense of humor through this whole ordeal. I am asking all my blogging friends to take a minute from your day just to send her some prayers and thoughts that she beats this as she has radiation and chemo after her surgery. I believe in the power of prayer and positive thinking so every little bit helps!

Thanks for your time!
Have an awesome day!

It's Friday, It's April and It's SNOWING!!!

Oh my heck! What is Mother Nature thinking? Doesn't' she know I hate the cold and snow and that I am not working right now! It would be nice if while I have the time off I could actually be productive and start the spring yard work! I guess I'll have to start inside and do some spring cleaning instead, major bummer! LOL!

Nothing new on the job front. I had an interview on Tuesday with iRobot. They make those Roomba and Scooba floor cleaning robots. Along with some very important Bomb detecting robots that are over in Iraq right now. Seemed like a cool place to work. But of course I am not the only one they have interviewed and they had one more after me so I won't hear until early next week and I'm not getting my hopes up because really what are the chances you get the first job you interview for?

I have had something to do that has pretty much kept me busy until the kids come home every day so I didn't get any scrapping time in as much as I'd hoped. Maybe next week I can scrap instead of clean! :)

And here is another little quiz for you:

Your Thinking is Abstract and Sequential

You like to do research and collect lots of information.
The more facts you have, the easier it is for you to learn.
You need to figure things out for yourself and consider all possibilities.
You tend to become an expert in the subjects that you study.
It's difficult for you to work with people who know less than you do.

You aren't a very patient teacher, and you don't like convincing people that you're right.

So that's my update. Hope you all have a fabulous Friday and great weekend!

Oh Red Pen Lady??? Where are you?

So I saw this little quiz over on the Sweet Shoppe Blog and thinking I'm an 'eh' speller I decided to see how I would do. I got 8 out of 10 and I'm not sure I even know what I spelled wrong! LOL!

Your Spelling is Good

You got 8/10 correct.

Your spelling is generally pretty decent. You are prone to a few mistakes, but the mistakes you make are pretty forgivable.
