Well CRAP!!! :(

UGH!!! I am so mad I could kick myself right now.......seriously! And if I thought I wouldn't have to call paramedics to remove my foot from my arse I would!!! I can just see that making an episode of "1000 Ways To Die" LOL

OK mad is too strong of a word....frustrated sounds a little saner.  I worked for hours on the layout I am about to show you......honestly.....HOURS!!!! I found this adorable sketch at Sketches In Thyme and missed the deadline by an hour.  WAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!  I have followed their blog for some time now but FINALLY had the time to play along.......just didn't have the time to post my page......LOL.  UGHHHHH.....such is life!! But I am gonna share it with ya'll anyway......just cuz this is MY blog and I can do what I wanna......even if that means eating chocolate before going to bed and running with scissors.....I like to live on the edge...bwahahahahahaha!!!!  Just for giggles I am gonna share it with the girls over there too......just not in the challenge. 

Yeah I know.....showoff huh??? :) I was saying.........This was Challenge 19 over there and the sketch of the week was one from Scrapbooks ETC...........which GOTTA get the latest issue!!! As a  rule I am not a huge fan of their magazine.  Not sure why.......but the holiday issue ROCKS!!! Soo many cute ideas and lots of adorable cards, Christmas decorations, and LOTS of liftable layouts!! Totally worth what I paid for it!!!

Yeah I am rambling ain't I.......I get offtrack pretty easy....sometimes just flat out derail......I blame the diet mtn dew :)

So this was the sketch for this week.....
Cute! Cute! Cute!!!

I honestly tried to keep with the sketch.....but I took a wrong turn somewhere around Albuquerque and never quite found my way back 

How adorable is that!!!!!! I went absolutely bracket crazy and used 5 of  I hit Hobby Lobby AGAIN yesterday...which by the way is a totally evil place....they keep luring me back in and I keep spending money......don't tell Bob.....Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! I don't even remember what I originally went in  Ohhhh....ribbon!!! I always hit the clearance dept first.......and I found boxes of naked chipboard for $1.79!!!!!  They are $10 boxes!!!! EEEEEKKKKKK!!! So I bought  So I inked the brackets up and glued the Jenni Bowlin paper to it and love how it turned out :)  BTW.....I got an awesome deal on ribbon and tomorrow I will share a photo cuz you gotta see it to believe it!!! Found it in the ribbon area....NOT the scrap area!!!!! 2 huge ziploc bags crammed full of salvage pieces, trim for upolstery, clothing.....OMG KILLER stuff!!! $2 a bag!! 2 bags and I snagged em both!!!!

I'm digressing again.........stupid mtn dew!!!!

Ok....I used Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co, Bazzill, Jenni Bowlin, Paper Studio, Cosmo Cricket and Crate Paper Joy Ride papers......Remarks and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letters and various buttons.This thing weighs a ton......LOL. 

Ok, story behind the's not really a Christmas page........I am just in the holdiay  Jesse was playing one day while we were waiting on Steven to get out of school......the middle school is about a block from Jesse and Brandon's school so rather than go home we just sit in the church parking lot across the street and wait for him each afternoon.  Lots of room to run and play and one day he found these big ol tree limbs....he pretended they were swords, guns and then finally, right as I got my cell phone out to snap him playing he put them on his head and told me he was a reindeer.  I kinda wanted to hold on to that memory :)  Plus it may prove to be extortion worthy when he gets older.......which of course the the entire reason Moms scrap!! LOL

I know I have rambled plenty tonight to I'm gonna let ya'll get back to real world stuff and I am gonna play and scrap and see if I can actually make a challenge deadline.......LOL

Ta ta!!!
