Monday???? Monday is the last time I posted????? Oh my goodness. I have been so tired and headachy, and just not wanting to be on the computer. I did however do an 8x8 layout and a tag book. Here is the layout...

Those flowers took know how brads are. LOL
So my voice is almost back but I won't say anytime soon as my throat is sore again tonight.
Sorry I don't have the tag book up, but I have more layouts I want to photograph and upload.
Once I do that then I will put them and the tag book up.
Well I don't have much else to say as my mind is tired.
Ciao for now :o)

Well here it is Monday and I am finally sitting in my recliner checkin in. I am SICK!!!! This cold is going nowhere. It seems to like me so it has decided to stick around. Lucky me...NOT!
I missed the crop at TallyScrappers and another one somewhere else...I think it was Scrap The Moment :o(
I started some of the challenges but just couldn't get into it. Maybe today I can get into doing something. I want to do a girly board book, and possibly a fishing paper bag book for hubby. I went to the park with the kids and hubby (Mill Lake) figuring the fresh air would do me some good. Hubby fished and the kids and I walked the dog around the park. Darn thing pooped twice. What a law, pick it up so no one steps in it...well what if it is deep in the bush, of course where she always likes to do it. So not only am I picking up crap, I am picking up dead leaves and grass, etc. Oh fun...ha ha (I am being sarcastic here)
Well the fresh air was nice, but I came home and slept again, like I have all weekend. I have this raspy voice and a cough. It doesn't hurt too much to swallow until late evening.

I have a question for all of you. Where does it state in rules of marriage that the laundry (folding, drying, washing, sorting) is the woman's job??? As well as the cooking????
I understand that my hubby works during the day and yes it is nice to come home to a clean house and dinner on the table, but hey I am working to. These kids like my constant attention and yes at times NEED it. Is that not work???? Oh heck now they are arguing with me about going outside and I am telling them NO in my lovely voice. If this continues I won't have a voice by tonight.

So tis about it for my update. Missed ya all. Will be checkin' out your blogs and such in a bit.

Oh boy, 2 days and no posting makes me a baaaaaaaad girl...LOL

I worked on a layout last night around 10 pm

Took awhile, but hubby liked it. I used the March kit from Croppin' Frenzy. This is my last month of being the Design Team Co-ordinator there.
I am going to try out for TallyScrapper Design Team, and see what happens then. Anyone interested in this, should check it out.
Well it is just me and the kids tonight and I have the tv all lined up for Survivor, CSI, and then either reading or Shark. I can never decide at 10 pm what I want to do.
Hey maybe I will scrapbook a layout or two, who knows. :o)
So I am off for now.

So here it is Tuesday and the second day of March break. My daughter has gone over to her friends house and is staying the night there. So it is quite quiet here and all seems to be going well. I did a cover for my 6x6 cardboard album that I am going to use for a circle journal.

I have spent most of the day on the computer but did some laundry and the dishes. I just love Tallyscrapper They have this awesome TallyPoints system and it ROCKS! Right now they are looking for DT's, so if you are interested, I would take a venture over there.

Here is what I did today - now remember that I still have to put in the rings and then when it is done the ribbon

Everyone is liking my sketches which is giving me warm fuzzies :o)

I decided to put the other two up today and then I shall get working on getting the others drawn up on the computer and them I will put them up. I think though I will do another blog that is just my sketches and some layouts done with the sketches.

Elle, thanks so much for your bloggin site and I have posted a layout I did of hubby and myself in high school...check out my (oh ya and the acid wash)

Again, thank you all for the kind words and for coming by, it is great to meet new people! :o)

Sunday, March 11, 2007

So tonight we sat here and watched a Fly Fishing video. Yuppers, just what I wanted to do on my Sunday after lunch at the church day. It is a CSI Marathon and fly fishing just up and popped itself into the DVD player in the middle of an episode. One hour of pure entertainment and feeling sorry for fish that are caught, mauled and then released...upstream mind you so that they don't drown. Good thing I know that for the next time I go fishing and catch a fish I so choose to release. Come on people, I catch a fish, I am gonna get my husband to eat it. :o)
So now on goes the CSI Marathon, unless I can find something else better to watch, and so far that doesn't look too likely unless I pop in a DVD of my own.
I was going to scrapbook, but suddenly got diverted from that after something that I saw on one of my message boards. Pretty disappointing I tell ya. So I will see how I feel tomorrow.
We missed church today but went to the childrens lunch and silent auction. We has lasagne, ceasar salad, ice tea and brownies for dessert. Oh I couldn't get enough of those brownies...they were awesome.
Well I promised sketches, so here are some. I have others that I will be doing soon and will get uploaded as well. Maybe I will even start my own sketch

Me and My Weird Likes

It is funny cause even though I am a Christian, I still like to watch the horror movies and read books like Stephen King (my fave) and Peter Straub, etc. One of the pastor's wives tells me that in time God will convict me and I will not be interested in any of it anymore. I have prayed about these likes of mine and have yet to hear from God about the time that will come.

I know these movies are fake and the idea of them are not believable and I know where my heart is what I believe. I am a big FX (special effects) nut, and where else are you going to see lots of FX but in a horror film.

I grew reading Stephen King and watching these shows, knowing the whole time, they weren't real.

I sit here now watching Alien, and wonder how they worked the alien, how hot it must have been in the suit, how did they come up with the design.

It seems strange, but I know in my heart of hearts, what the truth is and who is All Knowing.

All that aside, I thought I would share something I altered today...

Friday, March 09, 2007

Sitting here watching Amittyville Horror 2 - The Possessed. What It is a show I haven't seen yet so that is good. I am watching the possession now. Gotta love these B rated movies and the special effects. I love special effects, doesn't everyone? I just gotta know how it is done and how it is made...hee hee

Hubby and I played 501 tonight (darts) and the kids kept score for us. It was interesting but the game was very close. He won by about 100 points cause he started doing the triples in the end. We haven't played darts for ages, and it was alot of fun.

So I have been sitting here tonight working on my blog, trying to get it organized and get other people's blogs entered and then I realize I am missing some stuff. Man oh man. Will have to get right on that.

So today I was not late getting Nana to school but sure was late getting her from school. 45 minutes late you could say. The receptionist, whom I know well enough (I am the secretary of the PAC) gave me what for. Boy did I feel like crap. T-man and I both fell asleep and the alarm didn't go off. We are fighting our colds and by the looks of it, not doing too well in other aspects. :o(

So I got Nana's report card and she was late over 20 days this term and it is affecting her reading and LA. Again, my fault. This is starting to tick me off, me and my not sleeping at night isn't helping very much.

I need to get myself least for her sake. Ensure that I am up and she is up for sure 1/2 hour before school and then no naps near 1:30 pm.

I know, I will scrapbook at 1:30 or clean, that way, no mistakes. This isn't a common thing, leaving her at school. But it does look bad either way.

My beautiful girl.

But still

Can't wait to check out all the blogs and hopefully work on mine and get it organized.
So to be short and sweet, just thought I would let you all know I am back and since hubby cleaned house, I have more time for the computer...hee hee or should I be scrapbooking?????

Thursday, March 01, 2007


- these are 2.5" x 3.5" cards that have been altered in some way by beadwork, collage, coloured pencil, embossing, stamping, water colours and so forth.

- generally made from cardstock, but not always. They have also been created on acetate, leather, stiffened fabric and wood.

There are no rules when creating the ATCs but there are some guidelines regarding etiquette.

- finished piece must measure 2.5 x 3.5

- the artist should sign and date the back of the card

-ATCs must be traded NOT sold

There is a misconception that ATCs are only for trading. This could not be further from the tuth. They make beautiful additons to your scrapbook project, whether you put them straight onto a scrapbooking page or tuck them into minature envelopes or folders.
