I just had to pop in and tell you all about this fun challenge going on over at "The Pixel Gypsy's" blog! You seriously can't pass this challenge up, it's calling for GLITTER!!! Go check out her store, and trust me... you will want to give this challenge a try because her products rock! And heck you could be one of the lucky winners!!!

You can see some of her glitter in action, in my previous post. Gott luv those stars!

Good Sunday morning! It's about 5:15 a.m. here, and I started my day today at about 4:00 a.m. My darn kitty, Carmel, wanted me out of bed! Carmel is too funny... when he wants me up, he jumps up on my bed and starts strumn' on my chest. (He is such a goofy kitty!) I really don't mind gettn' up this early, because the house and is quiet and I can be here on my puter, without any interuptions. (It's a great way to start my day!)
Well, yesterday was a very productive day. I got our 4 seasons porched cleaned, which included washing 10 windows!!! Uhgggg! But, boy it looks beautiful and so inviting. And I so luv the feeling of accomplishment! Emma had her cousin Karissa over for the day, so they went to the park and then came back and swam in the pool. Then later on, Tony came home and we all went out for dinner at a local Bar & Grill. I even talked my Mom into coming with, which was good for her and me! After how many days of rain, it was good for her to get out of the house.
Oh, I squeezed this lil' number into my day yesterday, too! (Heck! Gotta get in some digi scrapn' time!) I used all Pixel Gypsy Design products on this one; all of her products work so well together. I am so happy and lucky, to be on her CT! Just look at this page!
Isn't she just a designer with detail?!!

Good evening all you crazy people! How was your weekend? Mine was great!!! I got quiet a bit done around the house, and it feels good to have had a productive weekend for a change. I have a fresh hair cut, so I'm back to lookn' sassay, instead of shaggy! :) I had a wonderful time with my niece Jenna and daughter Emma, and even found time to go out for dinner with the dear hubby! See... told you, I had a great weekend!!!

Oh, and I even whipped me up a new header! I used a number of my favorite LOs in my header; kept it pretty clean otherwise. I like it! Change is a good thing!

Well, we are entering into the last week of the Amazing Digi Scrap Race... I'm so sad... :( It really has been a wonderful experience! (Guess I'll have to watch for some designer challenges, to fill the void...) If you want to check out our(mine and Sherrie Piegdon's) experiences and LOs through out the race, head on over to our race blog.

Well, I'm off to snuggle with my Emma on the couch! Tah! Tah! And have a great Sunday evening!

Hey girls, The Pixel Gypsy is holding her first ever Challenge on over at her blog!

I'll get right to it... the challenge is!

You must use at least one piece from one of her new felt packs, in your layout & one alpha (from the designer of your choice). You can use either one of her felties, or both if you like. :)

Post the link to your layout in her comments of on her blog. If you don't have a blogger or google account and don't want to leave your email addy in your comment, then make sure you check back when she posts the next challenge to see if you won. Then shoot her an email, so you can collect your prize. If you have a blogger or google account (or leave your email) she will contact you with your prize if you win.

Two winners will be chosen. She will pick the layout that is her personal favorite, and the winning scrapper will receive a $10 gift certficate to her store. From the rest of the layouts, she will randomly draw a name and that winning scrapper will receive a $5 gift certificate to her store. Winners will be announced when she posts the next challenge on her blog, which will be on Sunday, Aug. 26th.

Well, you know you wanna scoop up those felties of hers anyhow, so why not play along and win yourself a gift certificate!!!

LO share this morning... I just couldn't resist playing with some of the fun and spunky designs by The Pixel Gypsy(a/k/a Sherrie Piegdon). They were just perfect to use on these pool pics, but I can see how versitile they are going to be. Don't you just love the fun her products add to a LO?!!! This girl does!!!!

Sharing my ADSR Challenge #9 LO! The challenge was to scrap an embarrassing moment.
And well... this girl has all kinds of embarrassing moments(LOL!), so I took the most recent and scrapped it! This pic was taken this last weekend in Green Bay. My Mom, sister and I got away for the weekend to scrap. (Boy, did we have fun!) Anyhow, we ended up really needing to shop for scrapbook supplies, at closing time, in our jammies! It was a hoot! My Mom was still in street clothes, but my sister and I decided we didn't have time to change back into our street clothes. Heck! The store would of closed and we would have missed all those great sale prices!! LOL!
Yep! We are addicted scrappers!

Good Monday morning people!!! What a wonderful weekend I had with my Mom and sister Wanda, up in Green Bay!!! We scrapped, shopped and giggled all weekend! It was so much fun!
Here are a few pics to share, from our weekend scrappn' adventure... The pic of the 3 of us, was taken at pretty close to closing time in the SB dept. of JoAnn Fabrics. We had gone there earlier and found a ton of SB supplies at 40%. After arriving back at "head-quarters" (That's what we called our hotel room. LOL!), we were scrapn' and chattn' and decided we would like some more of those sale priced items. So we called back to the sotre to see if the sale was still going on, on Sunday. But, nope! The sale ended at closing time Saturday. So, we went in our jammies! (Except my Mom!) I must say, it was funny, but a bit embarrassing. :) (So, guess what pic I'm using for Challenge #10?!!!)

Anyhow, here are the pics from the weekend:
My Mom & sister Wanda:

All our stuff, from our Saturday morning shoppn' trip!

Shoppn' in our jammies... I had on my Old Navy froggy jammies and pink Crocs! LOL!!
So goofy we are...

Friday, August 10, 2007

Good morning!!! What a wonderful day it is going to be! The sun is shining and so am I!(No migraine & no stomach problems!) I am off today to Green Bay with my Mom and my Sister Wanda. Wooo! Whooo! We are going on a weekend adventure, to visit a SB store up there and to just scrap and relax! (I can't wait!)
No... I'm not completely packed yet, but what's the hurry... :)
I finished up another LO for my CT spot with The Pixel Gypsy.
Every time I create LO with her products, I have to take a moment to reflect how lucky I am... That she found me and asked me to be on her CT. Her designs are truly amazing and I've created so many beautiful LOs with them!
And unknowingly, I have formed a wonderful friendship with her. Sherrie is such a good person and true friend!I so wish, that she was my neighbor!
(Thank you so much Sherrie!)
So, here is my LO...

Check this out; isn't it kinda cool?! I received Katie The SB Ladies' Newsletter and this was one of her Top 10 Web Links. You basically create your own Catalog Card and can post it on the web. Kinda a fun little thing to mess with hah?! Give it a try, if you are in the mood to play!

And have a great day!!! :)
Well, I survived another migraine! Although, for awhile yesterday, I wasn't sure if I would!
My head hurt so bad, I just wanted to cry!!! Instead, I took some ibuphren and laid down at about 10:30 a.m., and when I awoke at 2:30 p.m. in the afternoon, it was alot better. (I still can't believe I slept that long! But, those darn migraines take it all out of me!) Anyhow, this moring I'm feeling pretty darn good! No migraine and no tummy ache!
(I sure hope my whole day stays this way!!!) :)

I want to share my LO, or should I say our LO, that Sherrie and I created for the most recent ADSR challenge. (Remember I was to choose the paper, pics & title and then send on over to Sherrie to embellish?) Well, it's complete and is so cool! Just like I pictured it would be, when I first started the LO! Sherrie did a superb job on embellishing it!!! (I knew she would though, just because I luv her style!) Anyhow, check it out! Isn't it cool?! I printed it right away and added it to our Puerto Rico Vacation album! Thank you Sherrie for adding your beautiful touch!!!

It is a must have for every digi scrapper! This collection is as sweet as our little girls!!! (The LO I posted on Sunday, was created using this collection.)
Okay, I just have to share some pics from our Girl Scout Trip to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, IL. (Keep in mind these are unedited and I haven't added my magic touch to them yet. LOL!) The pics are of the girls boarding the train in Harvard, IL, the beautiful flower gardens outside of the acquarium, shots from inside, a group pic, and my Emma on our arrival back in Lake Mills. What a day it was... we will remember it forever! I can't wait to scrap these! :)

Sunday, August 5, 2007

Good evening people! Wow! What a weekend!!! Yesterday we spent our day down in Chicago at the Shedd Aquarium with Emma's Girl Scout Troop. It was such an adventure for the kids AND the adults! It truly is an amazing place and a must see for everyone!!! (Not just the aquarium either... Chicago it's self is so amazing! It's a city filled with tall buildings, lots of people and plent of hussel and bussel. We sooooo enjoyed the day! (I will share pics soon.)

Well, I wanted to share a LO of a couple of pics I captured yesterday while we were there. The landscaping at the aquarium was just breath-taking! And I caught my Emma stopping to smell the flowers... such a beautiful moment. (She just loves flowers and plants.) I used a new kit that The Pixel Gypsy just put up in her store, called Neopolitan Scoop. The kit is just as breathing-taking as the flowers yesterday!!! Sherrie will be introducing her new kit tomorrow or you can check it out in her store now! :) Anyhow, lookie what I created with it.
