I'm a Mom, whats your super power??

Good morning my scrappy friends!!

It's FINALLY Friday!!!! And my day is actually starting off pretty darn awesome!  Bob Bob dropped me off coffee and apple fritters this morning!!! Awwwwww!!!  He had to transport our elderly neighbor to the doctor this morning.  I'm sure I have mentioned it before, but Bob is a cabbie.  Bless my neighbors heart, she refuses to ride with anyone but Bob.  She just celebrated her  83rd birthday and is pretty cantankerous if you don't know how to handle her......she happens to love me so I have no problems with her......She called the cab company and told them she needed a ride tis morning but refused to give them her address because she is certain someone will come and break into her house.  The poor dispatcher called Bob and said "ok, there is this lady that says she lives across the street from you and needs a ride but won't tell us where she lives because she said only you need that information" LMAO!!!! I so love this lady!!!

I am looking forward to a LONGGGGGGG relaxing weekend before everything starts to get REALLY crazy next week!!!  We have a week and a half of school left.  And next week is just insane schedule wise.  Jacob's last day was yesterday but he is going back next week to hang out with the CDC kids he peer tutors.  He has worked with the special needs kids all year and they are so attached to him.  One kiddo, Blake aka Blakey, called 4 times yesterday and asked him to please come back.  He doesn't understand that Jacob is graduating :(  Peer tutoring has been awesome for Jacob and he thinks he wants to be a special education teacher after he gets out of the navy.  Speaking of which, we have an appointment to see the recruiter and sign the papers Monday.  He won't ship out until October.  For him those months are gonna drag by and for me they will go much to fast.  

He went with me to Jesse's play last night and it rocked!!!! I will share the pix in an upcoming post because they are in my phone and it's not wanting to turn them

I have a couple of pages to share this morning.......I did complete a paper layout!! I swear I did!! But I'm having issues with my actual camera right now not wanting to read memory cards, I think it's time for a new camera :( So I am working with my cell.  While it takes really nice quality pix......I'm waiting on them to send to my email....much like the school play  I should probably look into getting a micro SD adapter.  That would be a great mother's day present just in case anyone is reading.....hint, hint!!!   A new camera would be even

PageMaps has several awesome sketch challenges going right now for their 7th anniversary!!
I love Becky's sketches and there are several I am gonna play along with.  I fell in love with this sketch as soon as I saw it
And the prize is just icing on the anniversary cake!! With a cherry on top!!
(see what I did there....with a cherry on top!!)
OMGosh.......$200 in scrappy goodies!!!!

Again, I went digi....only because I didn't have the pix I wanted to use printed up.  So this sketch goes into my save file for sure!! And I loveeee how this all came together!!!
I used the super cool kit from Jenn Barrette and Sweet Shoppe Designs called "Kinda Awesome"  
I worked super hard on this page and at one point forgot the golden rule of digital scrapping "Save after every step!!" and lost the entire thing and had to start all over.

I'm also entering this one in the following challenges.....check these awesome blogs out and play along!!!

Not done yet!!! I have one more for the 3rd anniversary sketchathon at Colorful Creations!! I'm slowly but surely getting these done......hopefully I can catch up this weekend!
The sketch....
And for whatever reason I have issues with tilting things.  I hate doing it and if left to my own devices I wouldn't have......but I was trying to stay as true to the sketch as possible.  Give me another week or so and I willbe back to veering off on my own and doing my own thing to the point that the sketch isn't even .  for this one I went with a winter theme and scrapped one of Jesse playing in the snow and posing with his snow dude :)
The kit here is Lliella "Chilly Willy"  I don't have an image for it tho...sorry :(

That's it for now!! I hope you all have a wonderful day and awesome weekend!!
