Come Join me:)

What a night!

19 05 2009

Well, I know its safe to go to work tommorrow – Spitfires Won 2-1 over Kelowna tonight! Now as I type – The Wings are tied 2-2 with Obama’s team….. they better kick ass tonight. Or a couple of certain co-workers will make my life a living hell at work. Moping……etc…and lets not forgot about DH – Oh Boy! He goes crazy over Detroit Play Off Hockey. Its Insane!

So I managed to watch the AI Finals Tonight. I totally think Adam rocked over Kris. This post has a great read on the show if you missed it. Never mind that it’s titled 03/19/09 – its a big fat typo. BTW Kara’s song SUCKED. Just felt the need to get that out there! Kris looked like he was in shock all night for being up on stage as one of the finals. Too bad it wasn’t Danny!!

(((From all the shouting going on in my living room – I believe The Red Wings just scored! Go Wings!)

Back to AI:

And yes I voted! The little recording told me, “Thank you for voting for Contestant One!” Thank you very much. I do walk the talk ya know:)

Other News:

What a day! I have officially lost my glasses. They are somewhere in this house. Very Scary. DH & I have checked everywhere – and no luck. Even the custom officer searching my truck this morning didn’t see them. Darn!! lol
After work We bought ten, I repeat TEN tennis balls for the pups. They were in heaven! It was like watching the Easter egg hunt for dogs. Max had 7 in his pile, poor Maggie only had 3. But at least she brings the ball back for you to throw it again *giggles*

I’ve been officially informed that the Wings Won! Whoohoo!!

It’s getting late – I think I’m overtired with all this rambling here,,,,rofl.

Good Night!

Vote for Adam!

What better day than NSD to release a new Art Freckles Kit! Check out what the awesome Design Team gets to work with this month:)

May Fly Away Home Kit
May ‘Fly Away Home’ Kit

This kit features gorgeous papers and rub-ons from Chatterbox’s Fabulous line, a heart warming Daisy Bucket stamp, and Art Freckles own ‘ART Houses’ (amongst other yummy items!)

The kit is available in the store now, but quantities are really limited on this one, so don’t delay!

I love to Scrapbook, and the Art Freckles Kits have never disappointed me:) In fact, it’s usually easier to scrap with one of Shannon’s kits, as everything goes together beautifully, and you always have way more than enough:)

From the March “Nest of Treasure” Kit one of my favorite LO’s is this one of my Kitten, Sissy:

Why So Serious

Everything on this Layout comes  from the kit, the ONLY exception is the “?” Mark, it is from my stash, and painted to match. What I love about this LO, besides the fact that everything came from the Kit, lol is that DH & I will always look at this LO in the future and remember. We’ll remember the fact her nickname is “Kitten”, and also our fascination with the Joker (played by Heath, even though I still love Jack’s version too)

It is one of my more simple LO’s and one of my favorites too:) It’s a 5X7 Photo, matted horizontally & vertically, inked and attached to the pretty Patterned Paper:) Added my Title and I’ve got my keepsake:)

And That is why I scrapbook to make sure I remember! lol With this memory I have in my thirties, I definitely need my scrapbooks when I’m older…rofl!

I wish all you Scrapbookers Out there a Fabulous Day Today! Scrap Lots!!
