In the spirit of my 2021 OLW (one little word) I would really, REALLY love to just give someone a good smackin!!! I don't even care who it is....SMACK!!!! (um, "give" is my one little word....just recapping)
I have now initiated a back to school countdown.......seriously. Through Facebook and blogs I am seeing that most of the country is back to school.......here in my little corner of the world they don't go back until next Monday the 9th. I am trying really hard to keep the murder rate down for TN......but I dunno how much longer I can hold out!!!!
The natives are getting restless.......I have flat out run out of ideas to keep them entertained but we all know that teens don't find their parents very entertaining.......and I can't afford for them to hang at the mall all day long, and besides, they would just call me to pick them up eventually....blah!!! They are eating me out of house and home, my house smells like dirty boy feet no matter how many candles I burn or how much febreeze I spray. I can't find ANYTHING. My house is usually in a state of controlled clutter, meaning it's not perfect but at least I can find things. Somehow over night I have had 3 Walgreen's packets of photos just up and walk away. They probably got tired of the BS here too.....lol. But seriously........POOOF!! Gone!!! I'm a scrapper dammit and this pisses me off!!!!
So I have decided that this is the year I FINALLY get off my ass and get my craft room done. We moved the boys upstairs from the basement over the summer. Most of my stuff is down there is storage except for the huge suitcase I have packed up here. I'm probably the only nut to pack my scrappy goodies......if I ever run away from home that is going with me....who needs clothes????? :):):) The basement used to be an apartment, then was the boys room........and it is a wreck. I have my work cut out for me but as i creep along with it I will share photos. That is if they don't disappear too!!!!
OK....I think I am done venting but don't hold your breath!!!
I actually put this layout together a few days ago. It was for a sketch challenge but I needed a few days to decided if i liked it or not. And of course the challenge is long since over. But who cares......lol. I tweaked it a bit last night and decided it makes the cut and will go into my scrapbook.
I used Creative Scrappers Sketch #187......I rarely do multi photo layouts but thought this one was kinda cool :)
I pulled out some "new to me" goodies a bloggy friend sent me from Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer Collection. I LOVE this collection, the fun and bright colors, EVERYTHING!!! If ever there was a collection that had my name stamped all over it....it's this one. LOVE it!!!!! did i say that already???? Photos are from Jesse's 7th birthday over the summer....my baby boy is getting so big!!!!
I did find a couple of challenges to play along with......
