I did THIS...

We went to Schlitterbahn Water Park yesterday... had an absolute blast... And I DID THAT! well, the green one, Chuck did the white one, and I had NO interest in that! E did EVERYTHING but that white one as well, and T did everything that he was tall enough for... I am so proud of them! The weather was great... a little down pour, but nothing a Pina Colada and time for the kids to play in the covered Pirate Ship couldn't handle... Note to self... Make sure change of clothes are locked in locker, or UNDER the picnic table cover! They did NOT handle the rain all that well. Good thing they had time to dry out before it was time to put them on!

I did NOT take a camera, just enjoyed the day Mommy Style! It was awesome! Hey, Cass... they have one of these things in Kansas it says...

Well, four more days of summer school. The girls are GREAT, but I am done with that. Tomorrow is Scrap A Ganza, and it should be a blast, and our booth is looking pretty cool! But we are tired before it started! I don't know how people do this every other weekend. Then the countdown until vacation. ONE WEEK away... I just keep thinking about it! T will be SIX while we are on vacation. I am not sure I am ready to admit to that... it sure looks funny written out like that... I need a vault to put him in... keep him my baby forever!

Lights out!

Day THREE...

No, I won't count down each day of this so called "roll," however, I am pretty proud of myself! I don't have a third layout done, but there is one in the works on the table! It will be done today! Pretty excited about it... found an old CKU layout that I never finished by Jana Wilson... so I am taking some ideas from it! She just rocks!

Count down to Scrap A Ganza is just THREE wake ups! We will head over on Friday to set up the booth... any ideas on WHAT to take, please let us know... we are taking some fun stuff already!

Have you checked out the store's blog... A Scrap Affair is following suit of another talented lady and "Paying it Forward" Join in or start your own! Heck, I am not the best at mailing stuff out... but for this it would be worth it... so leave your email in the comments, and I will email the first three that post a comment for your addy to send out a little RAK! How can you go wrong?

Lights Out!

Can it be called a roll?

I got TWO layouts done in TWO days, and TWO posts in TWO days! For me... I am going to claim it as a roll... I have another layout in the works, but I have to get TWELVE recipe cards done... got to get some inspiration!

Maybe Scrap-A-Ganza will bring in some inspiration this weekend. It is going to be a lot of fun. If you are in the area, head on out to Sugar Land and make sure to stop by the booth and say hi!

Speaking of that... here is another layout that might show its face in the booth! I am digging this thing called scrapping... it seems like it has been so long since I have just sat down and scrapped for the fun of it! Whatcha think?
Meanwhile, my dearest friend Cass has taken on another adventure... I am missing you chickie!

Lights Out!

OK, I just don't know how this happens... I am a teacher... I am ON summer break... why am I busier NOW than I am when I am working? Another two weeks have flown by!

Now that is a good thing at some points... closer to our little family get away... closer to CHA... but the bad thing... closer to another school year!

Chuck went shooting yesterday and I had a little conversation with my trimmer and adhesives... it was a GREAT conversation if I may say so! I am pleased with this little guy! This layout will be on display at Scrap A Ganza down in Sugar Land this weekend! Love this Little Yellow Bicycle paper company! So easy to work with!

More soon... off to get my cars registered and a little bribery with lunch! There IS a Michaels there!

Lights Out!

May 27-June 10th?

How the heck did that happen? Well, I will tell you how that happened... end of school, beginning of summer school, working at the lss, Chuck turned 40, pool opened, and NO internet at home! There you have it... 14 days... two weeks... all in ONE sentence! And that is how it goes!

I don't know if you have read this blog for very long, that is if ANYONE reads this, but John, my baby brother has returned to the Grand Ole United States of America! He is HOME! He has been on a ship for the past nine or so months... and now he is home! He will be at my parents this weekend, so we are heading up there to hang out... The kids are so excited to see Uncle John!

Have been having a blast working at the store, but it is HARD work! It is still fun, and I am loving just breathing the same air that all this product breathes and working with people that "get" this craft and ME!

I will be teaching a class at Scrap A Ganza and working at the store's booth in Sugar Land the 28/29 of this month. If you are in the area, stop by and say hi! Then... and this is HUGE... Meredith is letting me tag along to CHA next month! I am just so stoked! So... our tickets are bought, and I dare anyone at American Airlines to cancel THAT flight! Please?!?

So... thanks for stopping by even after not hearing anything new for two weeks? Wait... does anyone even READ this anymore?

Lights Out!
