Toes Toes Toes!

It's a wonder I have any! Do you want to know how many times I stumped them while at home just for lunch only? 5! Can you believe it? Talk about pain! I don't know what's going on anymore.. I seem to just walk into walls, doors, and furniture!

Soooo, I was trolling through facebook earlier and saw where my momma had posted she was married. My mom just got her a facebook page a few days ago and I think it's great! I started to go leave a cute little comment on it like saying "yeppers, to my daddy!" But before I could I noticed she had also updated her status listing her children. Imagine my shock and surprise to see that she named both of my brothers, but not me! Now what am I to do with this information? Go into a panic??? Feel sorry for myself and ask why why oh why doesn't my mother love me?? Go on a coke float binge??? Nahhhhh.... instead... for all to see.... all my cousins, all the people I grew up with, and all the people who live in the community where my parents are... (keep in mind this is Country USA where everyone knows your name) I posted in my status update.... "just found out I was adopted!" Then on her page I posted "Well then who is MY momma"? It's only been an hour and already people have commented "WHAT" so you think rumors are not flying... you think by dinner time people wont be calling my momma... perhaps even her own sister? That will teach her!

While I haven't created any scrappy goodness in the last few days... probably because I'm so upset over being a newly discovered orphan.... I did get some scrappy happiness in the mail. My SU! (thank you Melissa) order came today. Here's a smidgen of it. Let me just say, if you've wondered about getting the ink holder... I already know I am going to love it! I got it for free! Yes that's right free! It was my hostess goodies. Well, I think it might have cost me $15... but that's good!

Of course you just knew I was going to at some point get the new Tim Holtz Sizzix dies didn't you. I didn't get them all at once...don't worry. But I do have 5 so far and am sure I'll be getting some more. Do let me tell you this. When I ordered them it said you needed the special size blocks to use with them. Having to order most of my supplies online I was worried if I didn't get the blocks, that I would need them and not be able to use the dies until I ordered them.... so I spent the $6 I think and got them. Save that money for something else. The regular blocks work fine.

Do you see the new Bazzill Bling? You know when the email came in showing this new product I thought oh I've got to have me some of that! Then I saw the price. :( Quickly I knew I wouldn't be getting any... but I told David about it and his theory... it's cheaper than a burger and fries. Hmmmmmm, I don't even eat burgers and fries very often! :) Soooo, I thought ok I'll get a couple and just see. :( :( :(
While they are pretty, I just think they are way over priced. And that's just not something you can see by online shopping like I do. Not to mention how thick they are. I'm not sure I've ever used anything this bulky on any of my layouts. I'm pretty sure I wont be buying anymore of these.

As always, thanks so much for taking time to stop by. Now I'm off to see if my momma has admitted I'm hers or if I need to find a new one!

Elaine's CJ Slideshow

Oh my goodness, talk about falling down on the job. I am just now posting the slide show to Elaine's cj. I am quite sure there are those of you who are not surprised. At any rate, it's here now.... and just look at the pages for her book. I am sure she is going to be very pleased.
Good Job Ladies!

Dream Man!

This is going to be a quick post. I had uploaded this layout to the Memory Makers forum and the picture there is just so small. So by having it here, everyone can read the journaling cause they are all going
What's it say?
What's it say?

Elaine, does this guy look familiar to you? How about you Serene?

I'm not happy with my title. It doesn't pop enough... Melissa made a couple of suggestions. One was shadowing which I thought of, but forgot the font name and size I huh! Another suggestion she made was a mat I think. I may just have to see about that!

My fancy shape pages were made using my Cricut and Songbird Cart. The little circles and hearts were made with my SU! punches and think I used a Nestie on a couple of circles and the flower shapes.

As always, thanks for looking!

Lions & Tigers & Bears


Guess what I just realized! I am so giddy!!! My self imposed scrapbook spending freeze that I've been under.. yes I know I haven't talked about it much because it really depressed me.... but anyway... When I put myself under it, it was for the first quarter of the year... you know Jan, Feb, and March.


The freeze is lifted! And tomorrow... I'm going to Wichita Falls. There's a Michaels and a Hobby Lobby and a LSS! Can I get a Woot Woot!! Annnnnnddddd....
the guys will be out golfing... it will just be Jess, Emma, and me!
Can anyone say
