30th Upload

It was upload day at Peek. The theme was unusual shapes and patterns.

I used a chipboard swirl for my shape. This layout just doesn't sit right with me. It's been bothering me for days and I now know why (at least I think I do). It's the font. I don't think I like that Arctic Frog font with my handwriting. Who knows?

I used huge quote marks for my shape. When I showed my mother this layout, she thought there was too much white paper and she said, "Get rid of those quotes...they're distracting."

That's all I have for now.

Thanks for looking. :D

Kindergarten Charmer

Yesterday while I was picking up Trent from school, at least 5 little girls from his class all said, "Bye Trent!" as we went walking past them. My little handsome dude. ;) Posted by Picasa

A little picture

I had to bribe her with cookies to get her to sit still. That is why there are crumbs all over her lips.

Inspire Me

I just finished up an entry in Leticia's journal. Her theme was "Inspiration". What inspires me? Several of my choices had already been taken, so I took the next in line. Paper. Yep, paper inspires me. I know, I's kind of like the cart leading the horse, but...

I need to get better at this blogging stuff. All I do is upload layouts. :P

The 15th is always a big upload day.

Becky Fleck did some sketches for Peek. The design team had a great time playing with them. Here are mine:

Trent got a new bike right before school started and right before we moved.

The above 2 are from the same sketch. I just flipped around the photo and the patterned paper.

My DML uploads:

I finally got my hands on this line of Making Memories. I didn't realize that Jill even sold it. I discovered it on clearance and bought a whole pack of it. I just ADORE that mini flower print.

The theme this month was "Scrapping the Bad Stuff, too." I had no problem coming up with a subject. ;)

SEI...I had a really hard time with this line. :?

Scenic Route

more Scenic Route

...and even MORE Scenic Route ;)

Sweetwater's layouts from August:

This is their newest month release.

I have some 3SB layouts to upload, but Katrina is sitting here asking me, no begging me, to read her a book.

Scraproom Renovation

I mentioned before in a post long ago, that there is an awkward space between my scraproom and the rest of the house. We want to fill in the space and have it become the rest of the house.

The space is 6 feet by 12 feet. We need a wall knocked down, a floor added, a little bit of electric, an extension of a vent and 2 doors. One door to go into the garage, the other to go into the backyard. We'll do the tiling, painting and hanging of the new lighting fixtures.

I called 4 different contractors but only had 2 return my calls. Both came out and reviewed the area we wanted enclosed.

One bid was for $3,000.

I got the other bid today.


How on earth can there be such a HUGE difference? Reading the description of the work, it sure looks like they both understood what we wanted. Weird.

My Dad suggested that maybe the 2nd guy doesn't want to even bother with it.

Another Alpha Entry

Here's my entry into Debra Cooper's Alphabetica Journal. I guess I kinda went a different way with the alphabet inspiration. Trent just started Kindergarten, so all I could think about when I saw ABC's was that. Thanks so much to Heather Simpson-Bluhm for some of the book pages that I used in this piece.
