Hello my scrappy friends!
I'm trying to keep busy today....because if I don't I will be a crying, whining, bawling mess. In less than 36 hours my second oldest son will be graduating. Even tho he is the second oldest, he is the first of my boys to take the march and get his diploma. Matthew (who is Autistic) will graduate next year. Then Steven the year after that......all my babies are growing up....how dare they!!!!
So I have been a bundle of energy today......I "fixed" my dryer. Well, not really.....one of the boys told me it just "stopped working" and being a mom I really should know that when things just "stop working" there is usually an operator error or they have used whatever object that magically ":stopped working" in a way its not meant to be used. But my brain has been on vacation lately. So it's gorgeous and sunny out today and I figured I would rewash the items in the dryer and hang them out.
I pull some towels out and they are dripping wet. DRIPPING. And the lightbulb goes off over my head.
I pull everything out and throw back in the washer and start the dryer......runs perfect. The weight of the wet clothes was just too much for the dryer to turn. What is wrong with people? I guess tonight we will have a class in how to wash and dry clothes. I swear I think they do this stuff sometimes so I will just give up and do it myself. I am thrilled tho that the dryer works! Do you know how fast laundry stacks up with 7 people in a house? YIKES!!!!
So......I figured out the dryer problem, washed 3 loads so far, vacuumed, and scrapped a bit and then cleaned my mess. I really need to become a more organized crafter. I lost a bottle of glimmer mist somewhere between the armoire and the kitchen table....and then tossed 3 gluesticks because they were either dried up or the glue was to the point that I needed to dig it out of the tube. I'm thirty but I'm not gonna dig out the glue......Im just not that dedicated.. I finally found one that would wor and if I do any ore paper crafting this week I definitely need to make a glue run. It's something all the time.....lol.
I have a couple of pages to share today........Jacob isn't happy with me because this first one is him and one of his ex girl friends. Yeah, like it's MY fault he breaks up with them faster than I can scrap em (rolls eyes) Sorry Jacob.......one day you will be glad I did this....maybe. lol. But I still love the photo.....and I scrapped it....so THERE!!! (sticks out tongue)
I used this sketch from the Paper Bakery.....
I dug and dug thru my stash and found this stack of Pink Paislee that I have had forever had forever......anyone remember Daily Junque and House of 3? Apparently I loved it so much I couldn't bare to use it....or I might not have used it because I didn't have any embellies to go with it. So I fussy cut a lot of the shapes from one of the patterned papers.
In addition to the paper bakery Sketch challenge I am also joining these awesome challenges.
Use It Tuesday: Can't touch this,,,,,use those hoarded supplies

I was inspired by the colors in this weeks Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger
And the challenge this week at Chic Tags is to use arrows......there are a couple there :)
I dunno if I will get a chance to post tomorrow......we have a hectic day.....graduation practice at 10:45, Senior luncheon in the old city ....that the parents are NOT allowed to go to....which I say bites!!! Because that means I have to hang out downtown for 2 hours for practice, take him to the luncheon and either sit and wait or drive across town a few times. And we are talkin downtown...noooooooo thank you!!! Then swing back home, pick the boys p from school, come home and get ready to leave again....whew!!! I'm gonna need a week to recover!!!
Enjoy your day and as always than you for dropping by and the awesome comments y'all leave. I love you all!!!
