I am bursting at the seams to tell somebody this.......it's not scrappy related news but it is still HUGE!!
This morning I was sitting at the computer going thru my email and the phone rings. The guy on the other end asks for Bob.....he was at work so I offered to take a message, because apparently secretary is part of my job description...lol. "Is this Mrs Bob???" the guy asks....so right away I figure it is one of his buddies from the shooting range or the gun shop. It was a DJ from a local station and he wanted Bob to know that he qualified for a 2012 Harley Davidson Dyna Fat Bob.
Both of us had filled out numerous entry forms at our local grocery where they had the display up. So Bob is one of a hand full of people whose names were drawn and they are having a big wing ding Friday night to give it away!! I am so excited!!! I'm a wanna be biker chick from wayyyyyyy back :) He says he will probably sell it if he wins tho....BOOOOOOOOO!!! Bit not before I fondle and caress it and have my photo taken on it....maybe once I get my cooties all over no one will want it....hehehe :) I am way more excited than he is......I keep closing my eyes and seeing how cool I would look tooling down the road....sighhhhhhhh :)
Keep your fingers crossed and I will let y'all know!!!!
I think I am finding my groove and getting my scrap mojo back. I have one to share with you tomorrow that is totally out of the box for me! But never fear........I have some stuffies to share tonight too! I created an additional layout last night, so I have 2 layouts and a card to share with y'all!
I'll do the card first, just cuz it's so stinkin cute......lol.
I found this super cute sketch over at Get Creative......
I really love the sun burst pattern or crazy quilt look I have been seeing. But I tried and tried to duplicate it and just couldn't.. But as I was going thru some stuff last night I came across several sheets of Echo Park's Splash collection. And there is a sunburst paper in there that worked perfect....so yeah I did cheat a lil bit :)
I have seen many variations on the "crabby" theme and I stole this one. All of the stickers are from EP as well.....and you can't tell it but I popped them all up. I can't find my wiggly eyes but when i do I am gonna glue them down for the little crab eyes :)
In addition to entering over at Get Creative I am also entering the following challenges.......by all means, click the links and go visit them, you may find a new challenge blog you love !!!

While cruising around at Get Creative I also found this LO sketch.
And I chose a photo from our summer last year when we took the kids to a little park nearby and they had this cool fountain to run and play in. They loved it!!! And I really like this shot I got of the fountain too :)
This one shows the dimension a bit better....I was all out of pop dots so I took some thickers that I know I won't use........we all have those oddball leftover letters.......stuck them to the back of the stickers and then adhered them to my layout. Instant pop dots!!! That's my thrifty tip for the day......lol.
I'm also sharing this one at:
1. The Pink Elephant: Summer
2. Crafting For All Seasons:: Splash Me
And finally, I used this sketch from The Scrap Room to make a really quick and simple layout.
Jesse was about 3 in this photo.....my how he has grown!!!!! And that's Bob with him, he had worked at the shooting range that day and was horribly sun-burnt!!!
The papers are all Bell Blvd Mr Boy..........all the little extra bits are from K and Co. Oh, and the letters are My Little Shoebox. I love the tiny letters for journaling!!!
And that is the extent of my craftiness for tonight!! As always , I am so appreciative of the time you take to drop in and actually read my blog.....lol. Your comments and visits really mean so much to me and I thank you so much!!
I'll be back tomorrow to share my totally out of character layout!! I think y'all will like it!!! I went all out with it :):
Cya later alligator!!!
