Another Shimelle Challenge!

Shimelle has done the impossible:: get me to work on projects (which is really good practice for this coming week). Here's what I came up with for the 'Use 2 4x6 photo' challenge:

It's 2 with both of my brothers on Easter. kraft cardstock. Reminisce pp, Cosmo Cricket Stickers (chipboard!) and a ribbon flower....

Yeah, I had fun!

Happiness Is:

Inspired by Shimelle, and also thanks to her layout, I've done a digital page with a Very Cherry kit I got from TwoPeas. It was the first time I've used a layered page to do this with, and I really liked the way it turned out.

Adding something else to the 'to do' list

I sort of zoned out throughout all of Shimelle's "something from nothing" class, so I'm going to give something else a try. So next week it'll be Ali Edwards' Week in the Life.
More details to follow.

Five on Friday

Inspired by Lisa Dickinson, here's my five on Friday:

Jeans!1. I am neither Long nor Lean, but this is the name of the Jeans I can wear at The Gap! Wow oh Wow! It feels good to be able to go into a store and not be embarrassed by the size you wear. And I love the fact that they don't cut anywhere, nor do are they inappropriately short or long. These things are lovely, and I'm just almost to the next smaller size--I think I've found a keeper, folks!

Debby's Dare 2. I have no idea where Debby is that she took this picture, but there are a lot of other ones just as nice. Very beautiful, and even a plantation house--cue Miss Scarlet's voice please.

3. I speak Melsh is reading a really cool looking copy of 'The Princess Bride' which I still have to finish. Do you know how many times I've watched that movie recently? No, you better not answer.

Script Frenzy4. Woefully behind and slacking in the ML department for this. Have an idea, but I want to write other stuff. Eeek!

Tessa5. Okay, she's probably one of the main reasons I'm behind, other than the writer's block. Because I pretend to be her online. Yup, I'm a gamer (Geek confession #35)... I play Star Trek Online.

That's all I got, so that's what I'm running with!

Time Out!

Grandma, Mom and I.
Normally, I'd be between them, but Easter sunday was a great day. A really great family day.
We had fun. We laughed. We were all crazy and funny and blessed to have that day.

I picked this photo up in an 8x10 and I'm going to frame it. It's a keeper. One photo that needs to be remembered, one day that needs to be remembered.

Thanks to Jessica at the Mom Creative: Today on you can get a free 8x10 print with the code BIG8X10. I ordered mine first thing this morning. It is valued at $2.99.

If you don't have a need for an 8x10 photo, you could always get it to frame for a loved one!


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
