Some more Layouts

Here's a 2 page layout....of Saira during T-Ball last year. There was a challenge at Scrapperie to make a 2 page layout and this is what I created....

While I was going through Saira's album, I found where she needed this special page put in. ;) So I printed out the photo yesterday and whipped out this layout. :)

Last Nights Works

I was scrappin' like crazy last night. ;) I completed a few more challenges. One is from Get Your Scrap On. We needed to create a LO with deminsion. So I used pop dots under the orange circles and then buttons on top of the circles.

This last one is for a challenge at Coconut ScrapShop. We needed to create a LO about ourselves.

Card and Layout for Challenges

This first one, we had to use a Scrapperie Kit for this challenge. So I used my April Kit-Spring Break.

Last night I started this LO for a challenge at Scrapperie. We had to use ONLY patterned paper, NO card stock allowed. ...and that's what I did. :)

And this last one we had to make a card from a sketch that Ally made at So Sketchy!

Scrapper Of The Week

I am Scrapper Of The Week over at Scrapperie. :)
Totally excited!!! :)

Saira's Pre-K Graduation

Pre-K/Kindergarten Graduation was on Thursday May 29th at 9am. :)
This is the decorations, each childs name is up there.

Here they are walking in the Gym. The lighting in there is terrible. And very difficult to get good pictures. :(

And singing their songs... She's the at the bottom row, 2nd from the left.

And in this picture she is at the bottom, in the middle.

Here's Ms. Berry, the principal giving Saira her Diploma...

They passed out paint sticks with plastic streamers attached to them for the children to wave back and forth as they walked out of the Gym. I believe it was to create the affect of a Rainbow. Since the Theme is 'Over the Rainbow'.

And here is Saira and a Kindergartener. ...awwwww!!

A little catching up...

Well, I never got around to posting pics from the Water Day that Saira had at school. This was on the Wednesday of the last week of school....
First they had pizza...

And this is one of Saira's friends.

Here she is running towards

And last here's a bunch of kids huddled up at one of the water sprinklers. They had several water 'stations' including a pool full of water balloons.

They had such a fun day running around getting wet. They also had snowcones while they played. :)

We're HOME!!, a LO and Happy Father's Day

We're home! We had a great time. I'll post some pictures later. :)

Thursday night I finished a LO, but I couldn't take the picture until we got back. :) It's for the color challenge at Scrapperie, the June week 2 challenge. Which was orange-yellowy color, brown, blue and pink.

Since it was yucky outside, we didn't have the Egg Hunt. Instead ya'll dug around for eggs. 1st Grade, Mrs. Guye's class Easter Party. ~Easter 2007~

And Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!!! You all already saw Chad's card that I made him. We also bought him a new Bible. And had in personalized with his name on it. Now he can see it to read it. LOL Poor thing, had a bible with teeny tiny letters on it. I've always had the Giant Print edition. Now he's good to go. He totally loved it. :)

Thank you Kim for posting for me on Friday about us going on vacation. :) I couldn't post from my phone. Maybe because I didn't have blogger set up with my phone yet. I'm going to have to look into that. ;)

I just want to jump into these photos and pinch Saira's cheeks. She had the biggest chubby cheeks I had ever seen. I couldn't love'em up enough! ;) She saw this LO awhile ago and said, "who's that?". I said, "that's you, when you were 4 months old". She said, "ohhhhh, why were my cheeks like that?" LMAO ROTF!!! I couldn't help but laugh at her. That was cute. I told her that's just how she was, little miss chubby cheeks. Then she touched her cheeks and said, "but they aren't like that now are they?" and I said no, they aren't chubby anymore. She asked me why not and I told her because she grew out of her little baby chubby stage....and turned into miss skinny bones jones....LOL

Anyways, here's the page I made.

We had your ears pierced when you turned 4 months old. On 5-22-2003. I picked out pink, because what other color is there? :)

Blog Candy Winner!!....and more

A few minutes ago, Saira helped out with drawing a winner. There were a few duplicate comments. So instead of using, I printed out the comments and cut them up. And I also thought it would be fun for her to pull a name.

and was awake at 2am...LOL She had gotten up to go potty. ;)

Anywho, so here she is putting the pile of strips into her daddy's Big Ol' Honk'n coffee cup from Alaska. ;)

Ok, and now it's time to stir them around...

Ohhhh, we have a winner....

Who is it????!!! Open it up..........................

Your DD did a great job picking out the SB stuff!!
Thu Jun 05, 11:00:00 AM 2008

Pat, congrats on winning!! :) Send me an email (click on profile, you'll find it there) with your mailing addy. And I'll get that to you on Monday. My crazy Post Office isn't open on Saturdays. Talk about not nice. ;)
Hope you enjoy and again, we both can't wait to see what you make with the goodies. :)

There will be another Blog Candy going out really really soon. :) My birthday is the 4th of July, which is right around the corner. So I thought I'd send another out for that too. So keep a look out. I'll get it posted here in another week or so. :)

And thank you EVERYONE for playing along and leaving me wonderful comments. :)

Oooo Blog Candy Time

Well well well...LOL I just had a look at my counter, and it's sitting on 20,931 hits. So when it gets to 21,000 I'll give some blog candy. I'm not sure exactlly what it will be just yet. But I'll make it good. :) So leave a comment at this post if you're interested.



Today Saira and I went shopping. And she picked everything out. So I surely hope you all like it...LOL If not, it's all her fault. She gathered the papers, but I added a sheet of Bazzill Bling cardstock. When we got home, she went through my stash and pulled out some buttons and ribbon. There is a yard of pink ric-rac American Crafts ribbon, a sheet of pink alpha stickers, a flower stamp, a sheet of creative imaginations and Me&My Big ideas stickers. :)
I think she's a scrapper in the making. She seems to have pretty good taste. ;)

We look forward in finding out who the winner is and what you create. :) Good luck everyone!!
The winner is drawn TOMORROW, June 7th, Saturday

Much Better

Yay, I feel MUCH better today!!! :)

Nothing exciting to talk about today. Later on, I'll have a few LO's to post. But I need to finish watching National Treasures 2 with Ryan. We started it last night and when Chad got home from school we stopped it. So be sure and check back later.'ll post one. This was taken the day we got home from the dentist on Tuesday. And I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE these papers. I got them from the June kit at the Coconut Scrap shop. They remind me of Daisy Bucket papers, the texture and feel.

On June 3rd, 2008 the dentist gave you a new smile. He pulled your top 4 frong teeth. Now you have 7 missed teeth...

(I had a few typo's and have to fix it on my journal tag...UGH)

Darn Flu

Yesterday afternoon, I ended up with the aches and pains and a bad sore through. Then a big bad headache hit me and I still have that headache. I'm still achy too. Last night after Le Club, I called my aunt to tell her how I was feeling and to let her know we wouldn't be going. Darn, and now I'm going to miss that ONE lonesome little Starbucks on that trip....LOL ;)

Last night we had 3 phone calls between 10pm and midnight. I had gone to bed at 9:30. I would've slept better if people weren't calling. I never answered the phone though. And then if Chad wouldn't have kept checking on me...LOL I would've slept better too. Darn interruptions!!

boring day

Yep....I'm bored! LOL And no, that's not a quote from the kids today. LOL But I better enjoy the lazy boring day, because tomorrow we'll be on the road....allllll day. I've already packed up the dvd players, gameboys, cell phone charger and GPS. :) We're taking a road trip up to Central Texas with my Great Aunt. She doesn't want to do the drive alone and she wants to go change out the silk flowers at the cemetary where her parents are at (my great grandparents, great uncle and great great aunt are at). I haven't been up there in about 5 years...I think. It could've been 3 or 4. I'm not sure. But I've found the location of the Starbucks between here and there. And can you believe, there is only 1. They are going to make me look up other coffee shops if they aren't careful! How dare them! LOL But anywho, that's the plans for tomorrow. We leave at 7:30am and will probably be back around 6pm. We probably won't even be at the cemetary no more than an hour...LOL It's just tooooo darn hot. This mid 90's temps are terrible.

My heart just breaks from seeing this...

This morning Saira had a dentist appointment. They pulled her top 4 front teeth. Of course, she's ok with it. But it breaks my heart to see her all toothless. :( Poor thing. She's excited to be rich in the morning after the toothfairy has visitied....LOL But here's a picture of her new smile for now. Until those big pretty teeth grow in.

I've yet to post this LO. It was the round 4 at Scrapperie for The Gauntlet. I played in the second chance. :) We had to choose a piece of art as an inspiration to a LO. I chose. Edvard Munch 'The Scream'.

In my LO, I used the April Kit from Scrapperie "Spring Break". Not sure if you can tell, but I used the ribbons where the fence is on the painting. And I used a few scallops where the waved sky is. Those were my inspirations from the painting. As soon as I saw the fence on the painting, I thought..."OHHHHHHHH RIBBON!!!!" lol

Tried a new technique

Last night I made this LO. I used more Crate Paper!! I can't get enough Crate Paper, I love it!!! So the new thing would be painting. I painted on my LO. It was sooooo annoying have to wait on the paint to dry though...LOL It killed me.

But this is Chad and Ryan. And this is how I always found Chad and the kids...LOL He had those babies stuck on him like glue it seemed. ;)
