First time ever...

to be in a photo booth! You can tell from the pics of me that I had no clue what was going on. I'd be silly and pose... then lean forward to see the results of the picture... and it would snap it right about then. Jessica on the other hand, she seems to be a pro.

We had this made at the wedding expo.... I believe there will be a photo booth for all to enjoy at the reception. Seems Jess would rather have a photo booth than food!

It's been a rough few days, going to be a few more of them..... but there's always something that can make me smile!

Justified started back last night and American Idol tonight.
Johnny Depp might be looking for a new woman!
The Rangers just signed (as in 5 minutes ago) the new pitcher!!
My husband being brave enough to bless my heart!

See, something to smile about!

No layouts to share today... just silly fun photo booth pictures!

I'm all caught

up now with blogging the remaining of my 2011 layouts. I think.
Now on to 2012.

Seems a little odd saying 2012. I can remember thinking that 1982 would never get here, and now here we are in 2012.

I'm off to a good start already. Working on layout #5 for the new year. I seemed to have had myself some much needing creative time this weekend. Using up the old kits I have been hoarding! That's always a major bonus. I'm determined to not buy any new scrappy supplies until I have made a huge dent in my stash! There have been a few things I've had to make myself use this weekend though. That old feeling of "I must save this, it's too pretty to use" has tried to kick in.... but so far, I am winning the that battle!

Wishing you all a great Monday!!

I can't seem to stand

straight or still when I'm taking pictures of my layouts! I've found the perfect spot in my house to take them... and the are level and perfectly straight when I lay them down. My house is not lopsided... we had it checked! It's me. I wiggle... not like wiggle wiggle wiggle in the song... but wiggle as in teeter, old lady style!! Not cool! It's really starting to frustrate me just a tiny bit!! Hmmmm, maybe if I have a drink before, then I'll be relaxed... or just have an excuse for my teetering! (is that even a word?) At any rate, I can not get a straight picture of my layouts... and since my word for the year is embrace... that's what I'm doing.

Here are a few more layouts from NYC. These actually have me in the pics! How awesome is that. 3 years ago I looked at those pictures and thought, oh this isn't good, oh yuck... but now, I'm very happy to have them! Thank you Elaine for snatching my camera outta my hand and saying get over there! And I scrapped them with pride... cause if I look like I was a little out of sorts... well I was! I was being drug all over the streets of NYC for pete's sake!

There's also one of Serene, standing on her front porch, eagerly and not to patiently awaiting our arrival! Had she know what was about to happen after we entered her house, she probably wouldn't have let us in! Those pics will come soon! :)

and this... this is my very shy husband (hahaha, yea right!) dancing with a GO-Go girl! She was part of the nightly entertainment we had during the annual golf tournament. My sweet husband who is usually very tired after a full day of golfing!  How can you not possibly love a man who knows how to enjoy himself!

Lots of layering going on here. Border punches... my new love! I really like the fun look that the pennants give a page.

It's funny the stages we go through.  3 years I wouldn't have used those pictures of me... can we say vain??  At some point I started typing all of my journaling, because my hand writing stinks... but now... I want the memories of what I looked like then... cause one day I'll think I was smokin' hot at that time.... and there is going to be a time I want someone to remember what my hand writing looked like.... so EMBRACE!  (I am lovin' this word!)

and can someone tell me why the word journaling isn't in the dictionary??  Come on, it has to be a word... I use it all the time!

Have a great day people!!

It's a wrap!

For 2011 that is. 2012 has begun, and I'm going to live it well!

It was a busy year, and perhaps this next one will be busy as well, but I'm going to do my best to enjoy it.

I discovered last night that I had several layouts that I hadn't yet put in an album, because I hadn't yet taken pics of them for the blog. I started to just say forget it, and then thought, nope I'll wish I'd uploaded them... so, here are some of them. Yes, there shall be more to come. I finally got back in my scraproom and created a page last night... and I'm not doing anything to mess with that mojo I feel on it's way back to me!! It's been a long time.

I'm not going to list all the supplies used... I'm just going to post and share the pictures with my friends.  Some I like, some I'm not crazy about, and some I love.  But they are done... and for that I am very pleased!

These are all from my NYC trip.  You have no idea how thrilled I am to be getting these scrapped and in their album!  Can I get a Woot Woot!!  I've got to get these puppies done.... Cause let me tell you..... not only am I again doing a mini for my word of the year, but Project 12, and I took the plunge.... project life, here I come!  Along with all the other 40-hundred-11 pictures that are needing scrapped.  Oh, and finishing my December Daily! So, I don't have much time to be wasting, do I?  I did think that this would be a great year for project life... kind of document Jessica's wedding planning as the year progresses.


So that's that group of pics.... not sure I'll get another post on here tonight. David is wanting to play his game, and since he is hard core on his diet right now, I'm thinking I better be nice and let him!

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

oh yea, my word for 2012......  EMBRACE!
