I just finished my Amazing Digi Scrapping Race Challenge #5 LO, and this one was a struggle! No wonder why they call it a challenge!! I knew right away what I wanted to scrap about, its just getting it placed and on my LO. I so luv Christina Renee's designs, but boy I have a tough time scrapn' with them. I guess scrappn' with bright, spunky and fun colors comes a heck of alot
easier for this girl. Anyhow, here is my LO....

I'm sure you agree, that these are must haves and will create some outstanding LOs!!!

I just finished downloading the pics from our weekend adventures, and I just had to share some! So, here are some pics from the Barbeque, Engagement Party, no wait... I mean Wedding!!! Roxanne and Keith made it official!!! Congrats guys!

And here is a pic of my Emma enjoying her new bunk beds...

Good morning people! It's Sunday morning and I have so much on the agenda this morning, but yet I sit here at my puter... Gotta get my puter time in though!! :)

Yesterday afternoon we had an Engagement Party to attend for Tony's neice Roxanne & her main man, Keith! Well, we all thought something was up, and sure shit... they got married yesterday afternoon!!! It was so awesome and so much fun!!! Everyone thought it was cool though... what a wonderful surprise for all! Especially their parents! The whole thing was so Roxie's style!!! I'm sure I'll be sharing pics from day, some time today... :)

And before we headed off to the party, I did a lil' shoppn' over at Christina Renee's store!! See my new goodies!

Saturday, July 28, 2007

Good morning!!! Well, I slept real good in Emma's new bunk beds last night, very comfortable... Almost everything is in place, and of course Emma wanted me sleep on the bottom bunk, while she slept on the top! She really luvs her new bunks and her new room! We still have to switch the closets around, but otherwise both our scrap room and her bedroom are switched. Boy, that was a job to get everything moved, but like I explained to Emma... the hard work will be worth it in the end. And as we are laying there in bed last night (Me on the bottom and Emma on top.) she said, "Mom I luv my new room and bunks, I luv you!" (See... the hard work was
worth it!!)

I'm posting my Challenge #4 LO for the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race... finished her up after the big move yesterday and before going to bed in the Emma's bunks! :) Boy, what a productive day!!!

I thought I would share two LOs I finished up using the awesome Pixel Gypsy's products. They are both great LOs, all because of the products! :) If you haven't been over to her store you best check it out! She now has a 1$Annex and bunch of awesome new products!!!

I just finished up a LO and had to share! Isn't it beautiful? (Almost as beautiful as the sunrise!) I took this pic last weekend, off our deck, over-looking the golf course. I was up before the rest of the world and when I saw the sunrise, I had to capture it in more then just my memory!!!

Lookie what the Pixel Gypsy has created!!! She has been so busy lately, that I'm not sure when she did-up these sweet & spunky things, but they sure are the perfect set of doodled-up flowers?!!! (Like most designers, she probably pulled a couple of late nights! Very dedicated!) Oh, and if you will notice, she has included the non-colored version in the set! So you can color away yourself or use them as is! Pretty slick!!! I luv them!
You can pic up a sample of these sweet things over on Sherrie's blog. Thank you Sherrie!!!

Just poppn' on in to share a LO I started last night and finished up tonight.... :) (Oh, I so luv it when I finish something I started, no matter what it is!) The pic and kit went so wonderfully toghether! I felt with this one, that the pic was such a priceless one, that I would keep the LO on the simple side. Although, this kit is sooooo going to get used often, with our PV pics!!!

Good early evening! First I just have to tell you about a new product over at Pixel Gypsy)! These are a most have for any LO! I am sooooo going crazy, because I haven't had a chance to scrap with them yet!!! (Sherrie has done an awesome job with these!) I wanted to digi scrap last night, and my daughter Emma wanted to go watch a play that a few of her friends were in. So.... being the good Mommy that I am, we went to to see the play (which was really pretty neat!), and made my Emma happy. :) Then, today at work, we had a meeting over the lunch hour, so darn! NO SCRAPPN' FOR THIS GIRL! BUT, I don't care what it takes, cuz tonight, is the night!!!

I just thought I would share a few of my favorite freebies I found today, just in case you hadn't come across them. :) (AND DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE THEM SOME LUV, BECAUSE THEY DESERVE MORE!!!)

Poppn' on in to wish my dear friend and "Partner in Crime," Sherrie Piegdon a very happy Birthday!!!

Saturday, July 14, 2007

Good morning Saturday morning! I awoke this morning(at 5 am) to the sound of thunder and the patter of light rain coming down; it was so nice to lay in bed and just listen. It was so peaceful! A great way to start the day, instead of having to get up and work out, shower and head off to work.

The dh went North for the weekend with one of his hunting buddies. They are building a new hunting cabin (mansion). I hope he enjoys his time away. Emma and I, have a trip to Build A Bear Workshop planned for this afternoon. She is so excited, because we were finally able to snitch her friend Justin to go with. (Not a boyfriend... just a friend she says.) Heck! She is only 8 and boys should only be friends!!! (But, we do have to tease her about it! ) LOL! Grandma is coming with and maybe my sis, so of course it will involve a trip to Hobby Lobby also!!! :)

To top off our weekend, Emma and I will be going out to Grandma's tomorrow to scrap traditional style! We are all in need of a day to scrap and talk crap! :)

Well, I wanted to share my latest digital creation. It includes pics of Emma enjoying the ocean in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico this last March. I seriously have to get those pics scrapped and in the vacation album. I hoping to use alot of them in the upcoming "Amazing Race". Wooo! Whooo! The race starts on Monday!!! I'm so excited!

Oh, a few things about me, since I did say I'd start being a little more open about myself. Well, let's see... I'm a full-time Paralegal at a great Law Firm in Madison. I work for an attorney that practices mainly Elder Law and Estate Planning. I do the Guardianships and Medical Assistances applications for the elderly. I truly do love my job; it's a great firm to work for. (Even though I bust my butt and get stressed often... but what job doesn't do that?)

Okay, a couple of little tid-bits about me... I eat a "Jethro" size bowl of ice crean almost every night! I live for ice cream! I don't drink milk, yuck! I like things neat and organized, at all times, or I just can't relax... I luv doing for others, especially for my Mom!(Heck, who doesn't like a little help once and awhile.) I hate liers and thieves! (They just piss me off!) And lastly today... I enjoy working out and get up at 4 am three times a week to do it.

Well, I'm off to upload my new LO to DST and then I guess I'll work on my ironing for awhile.

And Sherrie is turning the BIG 29 years old on Sunday... (Oh... to be 29 again!!! Enjoy it Sherrie; you deserve it!) So, to celebrate she is having a humgo sale over the weekend! The perfect time to pick up those awesome products of hers!

One more post this morning since I have time. I just had to share this LO I came across while bloggn' yesterday; it is just so truly beautiful! Isn't it?!!! Check out Camila's LO on her blog: http://camilanaweb.wordpress.com/2007/07/08/fim-de-semana-produtivo-los-e-freebie/

Good morning! I got up before the birds this morning... 4:00 a.m. to be exact! I awoke to my cell phone recorded alarm going off. The recording is Emma saying, "Mom, wake up, it's time to start another day!" Get up and work out!!!" Emma and I set this recording, I was hoping it would get my butt moving in the morning. And worked!

I have four LOs to share with you this morning. These a few I've completed over the last week.

Good Sunday morning people, that is if there are peoples reading my blog... LOL! Not, that it's a big deal, that there is not a ton of people reading my blog. But, I would hope someone found it useful, once in awhile... So, anyhow... I have a freebie to share today. It's from Ronna Penner with the Shabbby Princess Shoppe and it's a sweet lil' kit. Isn't it?! She has such a fun, funky style.


Well, today... All I have my agenda is to get some ironing done; my pile is high! And if I don't get some done I won't have anything to wear to work this week! And then I'm gonna finish up a couple of digi LOs I started and maybe work on re-doing my blog header(I'm feeling the need for some change...).

Off I go... later peoples! :)

Thursday, July 5, 2007

Good day people!!! And it was... I awoke to an e-mail from my digi friend Sherrie Piegdon, asking if I wanted to team up with her for the Digi Scrapping Amazing Race - Season 2 http://ndisb-adsr.blogspot.com/ And I said yes! And yep!!! I'm freakn', cuz I have not participated it this size of a challenge before... But, heck Sherrie has gone gungho and now she has me pumped all up, instead of scared!!! We came up with a team name of Pixel Gypsies. (I figured it was appropriate because her wonderful products are sold at her store "Pixel Gypsy Designs.) (The links are in my sidebar of course!) We chose our motto “Artistic, eclectic, free…racing gypsy style.” And Sherrie jumped right in and created a team blinkie and blog (http://pixelgypsies.blogspot.com/)! And she did an unbelievable job on both of them!!! I so luv her style so much!!! We will make a perfect team!!! So if you wanna follow our adventures and creations in the race, hop on over to our blog!!!

Tuesday, July 3, 2007

Good morning! And I'm wayyyyyy early this morning... I just couldn't sleep any longer, so here I am! Hey, I signed up as a member over at http://disctalkradio.com/, the other day. Sherrie Piegdon (http://pixelgypsydesigns.blogspot.com/ and http://www.pixelgypsydesigns.com/) was talkn' it up over on her blog, so I went on over and checked it out. (I mean really checked it out.) I liked what I saw and I trust Sherrie's opinion, so I signed up for one year. Well, for the month of July, Nancie Janitz with Scrap Artist(http://www.scrapartist.com/) (one of my favorites spots to shop), is the Featured Artist. It gave some insite on her as a designer, Nancie's chat with Deann and a full kit! Here is a pic of the kit; isn't it awesome!!! So, what are you waiting for; go check it out!

And check out the cute lil' July goodie over at Peppermint Creative(http://peppermintcreative.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=249)! Isn't it sweet!!

Oh, and I just finished up a LO I started last night, but didn't finish because Emma and I had to get snuggle time in on the couch! (She can't fall asleep without it!) :)
