My take on Sketch #3

Just lovin' the Scenic Route these days, almost out of this line. Makes me sad.

Sketch #3

Wow, what a productive night it has been. I have done 5 layouts since 7:30 tonight. It is now 1:20 am, and I just finished the third sketch in my sketch challenges at Use sketch #3 and post it there, link it to the forum and you get a chance at winning a RAK. How easy is that? I am also participating in a Cyber Crop Hop. This one is a little different than your normal cyber crop. It involves a whole bunch of stores...not sure I can even name them all right now (yawn)! So go to either or and check it out, they have all of the other stores listed. There are some AWESOME PRIZES to be given away and tons of challenges to get your layouts done. This goes on for 5 days, yes 5 days so go check it out.

Sorry it took so long to post, my dds have been involved in my neices wedding last night and today. They were so adorable, even when the 3yr old decided to stomp out crickets during the ceremony. I can't wait to print pictures to share.

Movie Monday 7-9

Well, I broke down and took the girls to the movies today. We saw Rat-ta-two-E (I am not French). I hate the cost of the movies, we usually wait until it is on DVD. I also had a nice surprise for me when I got home. My first DT kit from The kit is great summer colors and she threw in some new Basic Grey Infusion to boot. Yummy!! Of course, I had to do a few layouts with it tonight. I am keeping this short, it is 2 am and I need to hit the hay so here they are. Night!

So I've been tagged...

So I've been tagged...
This tag comes from Minda, one of my new mates on the design team at

1-post these rules
2-each person tagged must post 8 random(... hopefully interesting) facts about themselves
3-tags should write a blog post of these facts
4- at the end of the post 8 more bloggers are tagged and named
5-go to their blog and leave a comment telling them they're tagged

So here goes:
1. I am a first grade teacher and have been for 10 years.
2. I am domestically challenged. I can't keep my house clean even if I tried.
3. I don't balance my checkbook. That is why dh has his own, he can't stand it. I spend until it is empty. (such a bad habit)
4. I am a recluse. I guess you could say that, my sil does. I dont' get out and socialize much. I would rather stay at home and do my own thing (scrap)
5. I am an addict. I can't stop drinking Dr.Pepper. I drink way too much, but that is just how it is.
6. I moved out of my parents house at 16, still managed to finish HS and put myself through college on my own.
7. I would love to travel more with my dh. We would like to go to Greece.
8. I use a lot of scarcastic humor, some people get it some people don't.

Thanks for the Tag Minda!

Wow this is my lucky day

Can it get any better. I just got LOTD at Thanks so much girls, I feel like I should go out and buy a lottery ticket

Lucky 7's

wow this truely must be a lucky day for me!! I was selected Star of the Day at and asked to be a Seasonal Designer for Both of these are new sites and you should really check them out. I hope my luck continues since I have tried out for a few more DT's that I am hoping to get on with. I actually had the time to scrap the last few days. I seem to be doing a lot of pages of my mom and son. I think it is because they are really on my mind a lot these days. Isn't it funny how we subconciously do things like that. Well that is it for now. See ya later
