another week flew by! crazy...but it was a good week.
the design team for Creative Xpress loaded their layouts for Aug. into the design team gallery today...4 of the layouts i posted here are for aug. the "Learn 2 Skate" layout is for Pink Martini...this is the new Pink Squirrel line...so cute. the yellow paper has a faint turquoise grid on it....it's so cute. i didn't notice it until i started working with the papers...and the 2 strips of brown at the bottom that have the words on it....are also on one of the pieces of paper that came in that line....the words i cut out were so appropriate for this page...they say, " worn out and screaming, "woo hoo" & "preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways" too funny....
not much else going on...have some what of a busy wk. end planned. soccer, dinner and a b-day party and i'm sure other stuff will come up. i have some more assignments to get done but other than that...oh, and potty training...that's top priority. kati has used her potty 3x's now for me and i couldn't be more happy! i've been putting her on her potty for months now and she has never gone....so i'm hoping now we're at least on our way to "getting it".
have a great weekend! be safe....

hi there! thought i would share the two layouts i created for the new Pink Martini paper line coming out at Memory Trends in Vegas in just a few weeks!!! they were so much fun to work with...i think the Creamsicle line is my favorite but i haven't worked with the Pink Squirel line yet....so maybe i'll change my mind. the pool layout is the Flirtini line and the sisters layout is the Creamsicle line....the rub ons will be coming out at the show....

Happy Friday to ya! another week zoomed by! crazy how that happens!
did you watch grey's anatomy last night? man, i love that show! but of course i cried like a baby. ha ha
not much new going on....the usual running around...we have a birthday party to go to tonight for a neighbor girl who turned 5. tomorrow is a soccer game and out to dinner with a neighborhood couple.we're both celebrating our wedding anniversaries. we're going to this funky little restaurant in st. louis called Yai Yai's. can hardly wait!
i have a fun little design team secret...i posted it in an earlier entry without realizing it was still supposed to be a secret....so i earased it...i'll be able to share soon, i hope. it's killin' me not to share....this is one i've always wished i could be a part of....
a little Pink Martini plug....amy sent out their new paper lines yesterday along with some cool letter stickers (rubons are late) so the designers get to work on a couple of layouts for their booth at Memory Trends using the new papers, which is in just a few weeks. the papers are so fun! my favorite line in Creamsicle! wish i could show you.....but their still underwraps. their web site is also being updated so if you visit there are several areas that won't open (or at least they didn't for me).
i got the chance to work on a few layouts this week. the green/black layout is created using most of the Jenni Bowlin Sept. kit....i love that pict. of my daughter. and the 2nd layout i have actually scrapped those pictures before but i like them so much i wanted to do something else....i actually did a 3rd layout but i submitted that one so i'll wait and see if SBA picks it up....speaking of Scrapbook Answers....have you seen the holiday issue? lots of fun stuff in there!
have a great weekend! be safe...

finally getting around to updating my blog...it's been a busy 2 weeks. all is well on the home-front. the garage sale was a hit...i feel as though i made enough money to have made all of my efforts worth while. i still have a few boxes in the garage that the salvation army is picking up on friday...but i'm just so relieved it's over. not sure i'll do another one of those for a while!
my dentist appt. wasn't as successful. 1 root canal and 2 possible root canals. ya, not good. the tooth that bothered me was from a previous root canal that the dentist never put a crown on. the cavity cracked and i got an infection...or so they tell me. i'm going to focus on fixing one tooth at a time....i have my parents to thank for my crappy teeth....i guess my sweet tooth probably hasn't helped matters. but they look good. ha ha
here is a layout i finally finished up after 2 weeks of moving it from spot to spot. i just never had time to finish it and when i did get the chance i was in a funk...
so i cranked it out today....i can't get the title page to look straight. it isn't crooked in real life...i swear....
so in the midst of gymnastics, soccer, 4 design teams, weekends packed with going here and there....i signed up for a bible study class with my neighbor. i have never taken a bible study class before so i'm actully pretty excited about it. i am not a super religious person, but i do believe in god and i do say my prayers every night :) the study is called, "how to act right when your spouce acts wrong." ha ha should be a good one! (i'm not pointing the finger at only my husband here.....i often times act "wrong" over certain situations as well) there i said it....just don't tell him i said that....ha ha
this weekend i'm taking the girls to see Monsters Inc. on ice. we're going with our neighbor and her 2 girls as well. i'm praying kati can sit through the show. i'm not sure how long it will last but i think they'll enjoy it!
alright, well project runway is calling my name. love that show....design star was another good one...they'll bring that one back again for sure! or at least i hope so....good night all....

other news....just getting ready for our garage sale....i was all prepared until i decided to sell all of the girls old clothes....tubs and tubs of clothes....all of which are pretty nice. i can tell i wasn't on a budget back in those days...all of the clothes are from gymboree or the gap! and they all mix and match and have shoes and hats....
ok, well wish me luck....i'm sure it won't be as bad as i'm making it out to be....hopefully this dentist will let the novacain take affect before drilling....ya, i've had a dentist start rootin' around in there before i'm numb....he hit a nerve and i almost popped him one! i better stop writing about it...i'm getting all worked up again...ha have a good one!

hi! so it's still been a good week, just can't believe it's already friday! crazy how time flies so fast!
well, i didn't make the scenic route design team....it's all good. i wasn't holding my breath on that one....they chose a lot of good designers though!
lauren started gymnastics yesterday. she absolutely loves it! i knew she would...
she has taken tumbling classes and dance classes in the past but they were just done at the "Y" or it was when she was only 3 and doesn't really remember much. well, she's going to a huge facility that's just for gymnastics....so when we walked in yesterday there were tons of "bigger" girls flippin' around...she was in awe! she has always had great balance and is very coordinated so i'm hoping she sticks with it and enjoys it! i just wish it were a little cheaper! geez
i really can't think of anything else to chat about so i'll close up...have a great weekend!
oh....here are my creative xpress layout for the month of july....well, i guess one is a project...(2 mini band aid tins from provo craft...stuck together...one for each of the girls) and the layout is of my beautiful niece courtney.... (using products from We R Memory Keepers)
