I have been behind

in the "thank you" department lately. I did thank this wonderfully most generous lady over the phone, but I also wanted to come give her a shout out on my blog.
Love ya, Kim!!

She graciously made it possible for me to come visit all my favorite Okie girls this August. I will be meeting them in Tulsa and then driving up to a scrap retreat that they frequent called The Scrapping Pad. I can't wait!! Thank you so much, Kim, for making it possible. I will never be able to thank you enough or be able to comprehend the generosity and kindness you have shown me...gonna cry hee hee

I also want to thank my bestest gal pal, Cheri and the sweetest gal evah Carolyn -- can't wait to see you, too!! Actually, I want to thank the whole crew while I'm at it for making it possible to come and stay to play with them! See ya in few weeks!!

Few more scrappy things

Here is a layout created using Creative Scrapper's sketch #8 and a specialty kit I purchased from Remember the Moments. Love patriotic papers and Scenic Route Liberty didn't let me down :D

I did this card a while back, but forgot to take a picture of it until I used it for my niece's birthday. I used scraps from K&Co. Urban Rhapsody.

Happy 39th Birthday

to me!!! Yep, it's after 1 am on so it's officially my day. I'm holding on to 39 FOREVAH!! ..hee hee I can remember thinking this age was old. I can remember being 22 and my mom and dad being 39...where did time go?? It's just a number I keep telling myself. Yep, that's what I'll go off to bed soon repeating over and

I did have a lucky week so far. My sister won Kenny Chesney tickets on the radio along with the boat pre-party passes --- WOO HOO!!! We already have tickets, but we needed the boat passes. So she'll sell the tickets off. Then I hand my cell to Travis to be the 25th caller on a local radio station to win Jessie McCartney and Jordan Sparks tickets. The phone rings, rings, rings and I tell him to hand it back just in case we are the winner. I hear...25. I say, "Am I the 25th caller???" Yep, I sure was!! Woo HOO!! Why couldn't it be money, though???LOL I gave the two tickets to Travis for him and a friend to go...nice stepmom that I am :D He was THRILLED to say the least!

Sunday evening my mom and sister took me out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants -- Slows BBQ...yummo!! I'll have to post pictures as soon as I can get them downloaded. Darn computer is not recognizing the old camera. That's a whole other computer! I decided to run a cleaner on it to solve ONE ISSUE and let's just say I have MANY ISSUES now...jeez! But back to the was AWESOME!! My sister is the BEST!! I just love her to pieces I swear!! She sure knows how to make a birthday special :D

I best be off to get some good sleep. Wrinkles start creeping in at this
Have a wonderful day!!!

Horrible picture... **better picture now

but here is my layout I managed to pull together at the last minute for Triple the Sketch's CHA special sketch. I loved using the Chatterbox papers from BPM's July solo kit -- yummy stuff!! I'll take a better picture and repost it tomorrow. You don't want to even know how long it took me to get this one between one camera not being recognized on our lovely computer, smashing a lamp onto the Pergo floor leaving a gouge and broken glass everywhere, then having the battery in the Rebel die right after getting a better shot...ugh!
***I took a better shot this morning and I do think it shows the colors of the papers WAY better :D

Bringing you...

July's DT Sounds kind of odd, huh? Anywho, on to the layouts using the yummy BPM July Medley kit :D

This little bloom bucket I made for my niece Gabby's birthday. Her mom told me to make her something as she just LOVES Aunt Tami's homemade gifts...sweet kid!! I got a picture of her opening it.

was my bub's 6th birthday!!! We had a birthday party for him on the 5th, so yesterday was low key. I did reserve a birthday present for him -- the one he really wanted -- WWE Smackdown VS Raw 2008. You should have seen the look on his face -- pure DELIGHT!! Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures yesterday, but I did take plenty on the 5th. I can't believe my baby is not a little baby anymore...ugh!! Bittersweet feelings for sure!

Here is my semi-homemade I bought a Sam's Club cake and then decorated the top with the rice paper WWE emblems, sprinkles, and minature WWE characters. Can you tell that Collin loves WWE??!!

Other than that, I've been cleaning cleaning and more cleaning around here. In my spare time, I have scrapped a bit that I will be able to show tomorrow. Until then :D

It's the first

so that means our DT early layouts will be posted at Back Porch Memories
I love seeing what everyone does with the kits! Here's mine using CBX Happy Day -- terrific color combo on this paper!
