February 8, 2008

Well, one hour and five minutes and then my baby will be sweet 16!!! I just can not believe she is going to be 16!!! I'm lucky - she's a really good girl.

Well it has been a rough week around here in house and with other things in my life and I am just really glad the week is over. I hope that the drama and stupid stuff dies down really quick so I can get back to what I enjoy.

Today Rob and my dad went and picked up our car from down in Corpus - keep your fingers crossed for me that it gets up and running this next week so I can quit running all over heck and back every day!!!! LOL

While helping them unload it off the car dolly I jammed the flat end of a very large screwdriver into the palm of my hand. I have a gash about 3/4 of an inch in length and deep enough to hurt like crazy 8 hours after the fact!!! I've doctored it up with antibacterial cream and got it bandaged - it isn't that bad in my opinion but the location really sucks!!!

I got a new baby today - wanna see??? She is so pretty!!!


Don't you just love her!!! She is going to replace my Sizzix Original which is such a pain in the rear when using the larger dies as you have to carefully lift the pressing pad and move the die/paper/cutting pad and hope you don't jiggle it wrong or your cut is screwed up!!! So, this little girl rolls it through like the sidekick - which is going to be retired too!!!!

Oh, check out her bling:


Yes, she even has some bling on her baby!!!

So how about a sketch??? I made this one a while back and saw it in my photo bucket so thought I'd share it!!!


And here is the LO that I did based on the sketch:


I really loved that picture of my father in law - look at his shirt, twins!!!

Have a scrappy weekend!!!

Over and out!!!

Karen I love that picture of your Dad too! Love your new baby, so cute!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........

Thanks and happy scrappin'!!!!
