Finally....she's smiling in the pool. Oh, and some cards...

 Well, look at that. A little smile. See, it's not sad bad in the 6 foot section, is it?

Here are the cards I made from the cardover from last weekend.

Can you tell that Katrina finished up this one? There is bling all over it.

See, I do have friends IRL

I had so much fun today at Sandy's house. I got to meet Carole, Debbie, Sandy & Kris. Carole is from The Bitten by the Bug 2 team. I could only stay for 5 hours, but I was able to get 4.5 cards done. We had a delicious lunch and got lots of lovin' from Buddy the cute cocker spaniel.

Carole made us all matching hats.

Isn't he cute? Katrina is in love with him. I knew she would be. She loves all dogs.

I'm still wearing my hat. I love it!

Thanks for a great afternoon girls!! I'll post my cards later. As soon as I got home, Kat had to add a little this and a little that to some of the cards. *sigh*

A few projects that I've been doing this week. I also have this week's BBTB2 card up. I'm so late this week. We were to use a rainbow from the Princess cart. I don't have that one, so I used Create A Critter (which I think is my new favorite cart).

Fancy Pants, October Afternoon, Pink Paislee, Basic Grey & Scenic Route

New Fancy Pants, Daisy D's, Junkitz and 7gypsies

I used my Martha Stewart fancy scissors for the grass.

Thanks for looking. :D

We're not even in the water yet

and she's already upset. BUT, I have good news!!! The very last thing she did in lessons today was tread water for 6 seconds in 6 feet. She is so proud of herself. I wish I had gotten a picture of that.

Today she said:

"I'm lucky 5 times today because I can read, I can swim in 6 feet, I have pretty earrings, I can jump rope and I got my hair cut".

If you've ever seen Katrina's hair IRL, you know what a disaster it is. She FINALLY let me get it cut today. I would say that I was more of the lucky one.

I worked on another layout. I've been afraid that I would lose motivation since Peek is closing. :( I just have to push myself a little harder.

Thanks for looking. :D

From this...

to this....

she was doing so well until they had to swim without the kick board to the end of the pool. That was when all hell broke loose. Overall, it was an improvement over Monday's lesson.

Trenton almost went off the diving board. Almost. He says he'll do it next week.

Kat's tail

This is what happens when I'm not paying attention. Kat helps herself to my good cardstock, chops it up into 4-6 inch strips, staples it together and makes a tail.

She wore this for several days. It was long enough to drag on the floor.

Kat still hates swimming.....and some projects!

Another summer and that means more swimming lessons. Trent has been brave and has done everything the instructor tells him. Kat, on the other hand, does not.

I have one of those kids that screams at the top of her lungs in a panic when her head has to go under water. The guests at the pool stop and look to see where the screaming is coming from.

Katrina pushes and tries to fight off the instructor. The guests at the pool continue looking around and find me, the one with the towel over her head in embarrassment and realize that I'm that screaming kid's mother.

When does this end? She's been in swimming lessons for 3 years (at least). She is obsessed with the 3 foot marker. If anyone tries to take her to the 4 foot marker, she panics. She thinks she can't float, swim, glide, etc at 4 feet. I can hear her screaming at the top of her lungs, "I can do it at 3 feet! Take me back to 3 feet!"

At Bitten by the Bug 2 this week, it was Reader's Choice. A reader asked us to do something from the Camp Out cart. I chose the curved fishie.

and OMGosh, I actually did a layout. It's been weeks. It felt kinda good. ;) This is new We R.
Thanks for your comments. :D

Sweet 'n Sassy and blog hop winner

First of all, I can't believe I haven't blogged in a week. Secondly, I can't believe I forgot to pick a winner for last week's hop.

Carrie from DoubleClick connections won my little bit of candy.

Here's my card for this week's BBTB2 challenge. We had the honor of Sweet 'n Sassy stamps sponsoring us. For the challenge, we used the sun cut from the Doodlecharms cart.

As usual, Katrina had her little fingers all over this one. She inisted on adding the flower to the kitten's head.

I just noticed that I have over 100 followers. That's so cool!! Thanks for following me. :)
