Oh My

The bug man (AKA DH) ran over the can!!?? No harm done Just tipped it over. There he is pointing at the mailbox explaining how he happened. He was looking at my nice packages on the mailbox!!! It is all my fault!! Oh well, Yippee Yay!!! I got scrappy mail!!!! I need to clean but now I want to play with my pretty new bug paper. Thanks Hayley!!!!! I won the monthly challenge draw at acharmingplace for May. Real easy and fun to enter..four challenges are posted each month and you just have to do all four to have your name in the hat!! Plus I got a package from Scraplovers!!! From an awesome clearance sale she had. And the best part was I had a gift certificate!! Man I had to work for that baby but it was worth it in the end. I just feel sorry for the other girls that had to work just as hard but lucky me my name popped out of the hat!!! To scarp or work on that pile of laundry???

I have been tagged and......

I scrapped! Two layouts this weekend. One for the SYTYCS contest at even though I got booted last week they have an everybody wins section..where they draw for the winners so I still have a wee bit of hope!
And one for a sketch challenge
Now to something new for me...I have been tagged TWICE! These are the rules…. each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves on their Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of their blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment.
1.I am short
2. I just got out of the worries I am dressed but you need to know that for the other facts..
3. I always drop the soap..drives me crazy.
4. I hate it when hair gets on the soap.
5. I like the water HOT!
6. ummm the shower doors are dirty..I really should clean more.
7. I love comfy PJs!
So now I need to tag seven? See my charming friends over there>>>>??? They are awesome and if you wonder why they are charming..I meet them at but when it comes to blogging..I think only 3 update regularly. So this might not go over too every once in a while we have to break a few rules..right!!!? So does this mean I am still it!? Running around in circles with no one to tag.

Week 5

At I was in a So you think you can scrap contest! It was fun but this was the last round I made it to. We had to use a poster for inspiration and make it unique. For my insipration I used one titled Dance of Youth that had a ring of children dancing so I stitched around my journaling and for the unique I went all out and made my own background paper. It was fun!! I was surprised I made it this far....can't wait to see who wins.

week 3 and 4

Week 3 we had to use a CD cover for our inspiration and our Favorite technique!
Week 4 we had to do a dance most like our lives..I did the hip hop!

week 1 and 2

For week one we had to use a song title and cardstock only..on that part was hard!
Week 2 we had to put an item on necklace.

Lovely Day

Mom called me last night and ask if I would meet them at the ranger station..yes!! Oh I was looking forward to stomping on old territory again, nice slow walk. Well, little miss Katie didn't want to stay with the rest of us so it was more like we ran the trail trying to keep up with her!!? When she got to the fork she waited to see which way to go....I told her we were going to go out or if she wanted to stay with the rest of us then we could go up to the pond. Not sure what her mommy thought of that but who knows who or what might be on the trail ahead and I was tired of worrying about it. It was really enjoyable after that! Watching the kids walk together..David was playing tag with Brandon, sweet little Claya was holding FT's hand and she helped him fill his pockets with pine cones!!! Hope to do it again soon!!!

Oh what fun!

I took the two little dudes to the library this morning for "mysterious" animals from the zoo! It was cool!! They got to see a tarantula, a king snake, an owl, and a ferret. Big brother got to pet the snake but being a bad mom I didn't let FT, I could just see him with his little fist gripped around it and not letting go! They both got to pet the ferret..figured it was enough like a cat or dog that he would understand to just pet it. He was sooooooo excited!! I enjoyed it!
