The Big 50

Well my brother in law is turning 50 and my sister is having a huge surprise party for him tomorrow night, it's a polka dot surprise/gag gift party. My sister asked that everyone come wearing polka dots because Tom doesn't like them. She also said to bring a gag gift, so here's mine, it's a "Diaper Cake" made with Depends diapers, denture cream and tooth brush, tums, Hemorriod cream, Bruit and Old Spice ... (LOL) it also has a magnifying glass and some Ben Gay .... everything he should need ... j/k ... I'm also making a guest book ... Here is a pic of the Cake and the cover to my guest book.............. enjoy~

Computer Problems

Well it's inevitable, I have to take my computer in for cleaning. It's taking way to long to boot up and to connect to the internet. Although I just stated my blog and i'm very excited about it, I won't be on line for a week or so, hopefully it won't take that long.

I have scrapbook/Stamp night this Friday and I'm looking forward to it, so hopefully when I get my computer back, I'll have lots of new things to post.

A Day for Remembrance

I felt weird waking up this morning going about my business getting ready for work knowing that in a different part of the country some people will be grieving for the loss of their loved ones. The attack that devastated our country 6 yrs ago was the last thing on my mind when I went to bed last night and the first thing on my mind when I woke up.

Crazy but I don’t think that I’ll ever forget the image of that day and sitting in awe of the destruction, but today is a day of remembrance not only for those who were lost but for our troops who are fighting to keep us free!

2 Birthday's down 2 more to go ...

Well, it's a short post today as I pulled my back out by picking up the garden hose of all things.

I have several friends who's b-days are this month, one whose is tomorrow .... I've know Renee for years and wanted to send her a special card, I used my Party Kittens stamp (whipper snapper) it's one of my favorites.

A Great Day for Ice Cream

It was such a beautiful day out today, I was so busy from the minute I woke up to now. After I got up and ate breakfast, I went to Lowes to check out a few things, I was thinking that I might need to buy a new lawnmower but after talking with Dustin in the Seasonal department, I was able to flush out the oil and change the sparkplug.... Yea me! I'm so calling Lowes to let them know what a great employee he is, he let me ask all my questions and I didn't feel rushed, he even made me a
"To Do" list.

I'm thinking that tomorrow will be a day of rest. Here are a few cards that I was able to create ...:)

Speaking of Ice Cream, we're heading out to Cold Stone ....

Is it Friday yet?

Although it's been a short work week, it feels like this week has been forever! I was trying to make some cards, but my DD kept coming in and out of the scrapbook room carrying on about being hungry, wait, I think she said that she was starving. Yep, that's it, starving (as she's munching on some Chilli Cheese Fritos .... )

Needless to say, I was only able create this photo holder, I'm sure it has a more savvy name, but "Photo Holder" was the first thing that came to my mind. Hopefully I'll have some cards made by tomorrw, I was in the middle of using my H2O paint on a card I was making when Stefani (my DD) came in the room and hit the table .... Yep you guessed it, H2O all over the card .... Oh well ..... If at first you don't succeed ...... blah blah blah.

Can anyone tell me how to fix the Italic text on the side bars? I have no idea what I did and I can't seem to remove it and put it back to plan text.

Birthdays Birthdays and more Birthdays

It seems that September is a very busy month, I have 4 friends who have birthday's this month and Grandparents day is coming. I only had time to make one card today, I got busy some errands and the time escaped me. I used Blue and Green Bling Bazzill paper and my cuttlebug on this card, I used the Happy Birthday folder and some ribbon that I got out of the "Michaels" $1 bin. I love their dollar bin. The stamp is from Great Impressions and is called "Happy Birthday Giraffe"

I think it's only 80 degrees today, but it feels like a 1000 degrees. I don't care for the heat, I don't like to be sweaty, that's my excuse for not exercising ... tee hee

We went to the state fair and my daughter got to see her first Budwieser Clydesdale, take a look at him, he's huge.

Labor Day

It's truley "Labor Day" in my house, I've been up doing laundry and cleaning the house for the week. We don't have much planned for the day, I'm going to rest as tomorrow is a work day for me. My daughter is busy watching her soaps while I'm trying to get in some stampin and scrapbookin in. LOL It's going to be a hot one today, so I'm hoping to get all my chores out of the way early. Here are 2 cards that I managed to make this morning. I used my favoite "Bee" stamps and my new "Harvest/fall stamps" I got yesterday. I couldn't wait to use them. Walking into a Stamping store for me is like a small child walking into a candy store. Enjoy!

A Lazy Day

Well it's Sunday and I'm feeling so lazy, yesterday I was helping my sister with my BIL's 50th birthday party invitations, but I did manage to squeeze in a card or two ... this one was made with my "Critters and Blossoms" stamps, I think they are so cute. I used my NEW Prismacolor pencils .... I went looking for some Gamsol at my local Home Depot but they had no idea what I was talking about, anyone know where I can get some, or do I have to order it online?
