Playin along with Inspired Blueprints at Ning and a sneeky peek at an upcoming reveal!

Helloo scrappy gals!

Ya know, I never really gave any thought to the fact that there may be a scrappy fella or 2 out there.....somewhere.  Ya think? It could happen! Bob attempted scrapbooking back when Jesse was born.  He suggested it and we both tried it but I gave it up because with a newborn in the house AND 4 older children who are rude enough to STILL need to be feed, drove to school, picked up from school,have laundry washed and heaven only knows what else....especially with my kids (I know!!! The nerve!!!!) ....I just didn't feel motivated. About a year later I discovered digital and did that until just the past Feb when I picked up the gluestick and got bitten by the scrappy bug! He toyed with it a while then wanted to outdo me....he is very competative....and started doing digi stuff too.  These days he pretty much limits his scrappy talents to doing weird things to the boys photos and making desktops out of them.  Yeah...he is a big kid himself :)

So if I have missed the lone male scrapper out there, I apologize!! Still luv me??

Did I tell ya we got the truck ordeal solved? Yup!!  He and Bob came to an agreement and sealed a deal.  I was so excited.....thinking I would get to shop for some new scrappy goodies....I have a huge wish list going right now! But did I? Of course not....cuz he spent ALL of that money on gun parts in 1 day. WHAT?????? OMYGOSH!!!!! I'm tellin ya......I feel homicidal!  For what he got he coulda bought a new gun! But no...he has to build one. (slaps forehead)  Here is a pic of the truck after Otis Cambell aka my neighbor ran into it.

Pretty huh??? He kept trying to say that he only "scratched it".  Yeah right!!  So that is what the truck looked like....and this is what Bob saw the day Otis came over and rang the doorbell at 9 am.  He was still half asleep...opens the door and sees this....

What a thing to wake up too! Notice the mirror? That is what did most of the damage.....LOL.  Soooooo glad it's his mirror and not mine! The last thing I need is more bad luck!!

So there is my neighbor update! I swear I should video tape him sometime to show ya'll.  The man is a mess! Say a prayer for his wife if you are the prayin kind PLEASE!! If for no other reason because she has to put up with this kind of thing on a daily basis.....but she is undergoing radiation right now for a thyroid condition.  She is not in the best of health and is in her 80's as well and I feel so bad for her.  I try to do what I can for her and try to be a good person/neighbor but I also try to avoid Otis when he is drinking....

Ok.....scrappy stuff!!!

How many of ya'll play over at Ning? I haven't gotten too awful into it just yet.  Gimme time tho and this scrapping thing will be a full time  I belong to Challenge Masters but haven't been over there in a while.  Then there was mention of another one last night but I can't remember it or who mentioned it.  LOL...yeah thanks for the tip Tina :)  And I just joined Inspired Blueprints all because of this sketch.
And they have a digi version too!!!!

I am assuming you can do one or both.......I will find out I guess.....LOL....could you guess I don't EVER read directions before I try to put somehting together or operate new appliances?  Thought so :)  Here is my page....I did this last night but my post was so long I figured I'd give ya a break.  Not that this isn't turning out to be a mini series as well....but oh knew what you were gettin into when you clicked my blog....LOL.

I LOVEEEEEE my little banner Ain't it cute? Made it ALL BY MYSELF!!!! I know ya'll can appreciate my excitement....I try showing it off here and all I get is...."they look like triangles on a string" DUH!!!!! They are so hot right now and it was a last minute addition to the page.  Turned it from an "Ehhhhh I like it BUT" kinda page to an "Ohhhhhhhh look how cute!!!" page for me :)  I tried my hand at some clustering in the lower right corner but It still looks like it could use more STUFF!

Used both the Cosmo Cricket Snorkle collection AND Basic Grey Lime Rickey.  The flowers I made from felt scraps and fuzzy pom  And I cut the word Snorkle off the salvage edge of the Cosmo Cricket paper and used it. Oh, and the journaling strips are Avery Office file labels.....LOL.

I scrapped some today too but unfortuanately I can't share that page with ya just yet :(  BUT......I can give ya a sneeky peek cuz there are a couple of things I just LOVEEEEE and can't keep to myself here!

Remember a while back when I won the Design Dollies Color Challenge? Well I got oodles of great goodies and got to use them today!!!  For example....check out my gorgeous flower!!!!

OMG I just LOVEEEEEE IT!!!!! I feel like adding a tradmarked Julie Wolek EEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!! You won't believe how easy it was is nothing more than punched circles glued onto another circle and kinda alternated until you get the fullness you like.  Stick a button in the middle and you are done! I fiddled with the petals a bit to get them looking more realistic......then I didn't like the color...I had to sue a different color paper and it didn't match.  So I used my Shimmerz!!! I let that dry and it was sooooo pretty! Then I wondered what it would look like it I added glimmer mist to I did and it just WOWED me then! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!!!

Then I made a little envelope for some hidden journaling, well actually a letter but I can't tell you any more than that JUST YET!!! Tied it with a bow and added this sweet little blue bling to it :)

And added the bling to the photo mat as well.  I'm tellin ya it's killin me not to show you this page!!!!! ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

I guess this would be the part of the show where Porky Pig pops out of your monitor and stutters "Tha tha tha That's all folks!!!" is :)
