My sunshine is gone. :( It was here yesterday...and the winter advisory doesn't start until tomorrow, why it's even supposed to be in the low 60's this afternoon...So Where Is My Sun?
This past weekend was a bit busy with unexpected pleasant surprises. Jessica came Friday afternoon for a bit of scrap happy time. Then Saturday morning my mom called and said her and my daddy were coming to Duncan... just out of the blue! Which was really nice as it was her birthday! So we took them out to eat lunch and shocker of all shockers! My daddy actually stayed for a little bit. He is usually a in the door hello how are you ok let's go kind of guy. He's always been that way, everywhere he goes! But this time he came in and sat down! I should have taken a picture! But anyway, so my Saturday morning was spent cleaning instead of scrapping. Nothing like a call from your mother saying we are coming to visit to spur a little dusting and vacuuming! The good news is that after they left, for the remaining of the weekend my house was clean and I could spend it scrapping!
Have you guys been getting the email updates or seeing the facebook pictures of all the new super cool stuff going on at CHA? My mouth is just watering at the thought of getting my hands on some of the new Tim Holtz dies. And 7 Gypsies.... have you seen their new paper, or get this... binder clips with BLING! I'm just so super excited!
As you've noticed, I've been trying to do some challenges. I'm rather proud of myself for actually finishing them! I'm just having a bit of a problem with that silly html link jazz! I do not like it! It frustrates me so.
Here's a couple more layouts for Jessica's Sr Album. These were also at 6 Flags, and the end of the 6 Flag pictures. Next on the table is Football Caravan.. oh how exciting!
I'm not real crazy about the bottom layout...but it is what it is. I struggled with it for days! Then I finally just told myself it's the pictures and the story that are the very most important part. The rest is just sort of window dressing... and some dresses are prettier than others. So, while I may be struggling a little right now...ok more than a little... and my mojo is out looking for the sunshine, I'll just try to keep in mind that some dresses are prettier than others!
The girls are coming Sunday I think... I'm going to take pictures of us all playing. Well Jessica is coming, not sure about Emma yet. But plans are in progress to work on their cj's. I said to Jessica.... you have your own stuff, I know this, I bought it for you...she says she knows, but after being in my scrap room she feels like she doesn't have anything. Translate... mom we are coming to use up all yours and save ours!
Once upon a time Elaine and Serene told me that if I died they got all my scrap stuff... I'm thinking now the girls wont call you two until the scrap room is bare!
As always, thanks for looking.
