Terrific Tuesday!!!

That is what I am calling today!!!

After a tumultuous weekend, it is nice to have a breath of fresh air this morning to help one get over a bitch of a Saturday. Yeah, I usually keep my posts G rated but Saturday was just so ridiculous it deserved that. I won't air the dirty drawers here but lets just say that family drama was at it's best this weekend. I was honored by my BIL really breaking out and telling me how he and supposedly the rest of my in-laws feel about me and then he told my husband they were done - he was done with him. All because my husband defended me in our home when we were totally disrespected. Anywho, won't put all the gory details here but all my friends know how much of a trouble maker I am so it will all be my fault once again.

Anywho, back to my Terrific Tuesday!!! Rob and I got back late last night with my parents from our trip to Kinder, LA for a casino trip. Wow oh wow oh wow what a great trip!!! We paid $35 per person for round trip bus transportation, hotel room and a $23 casino voucher and left Sunday morning and got home Monday night. So all in all the trip cost of $12 per person for transportation and a place to rest our head - mind you this hotel was definitely a really nice hotel!!!

So, anyway, again back to my Terrific Tuesday!!! I jumped on the boards over at Just Scrappin' to find out that I won, yes me, moi, won the June Contest for a summer layout. This was the first layout that I have scrapped since March that I told you about the other day and said I couldn't share it til the contest was over. Well, it is over and I won!!! Woohoo for me!!! What a surprise and shock. The coolest part - it was judged impartially by Leslie from Treasured Scrapbooking and she had no clue who's layout belonged to who. Georgina won for most creative with her 33 Braids layout which was absolutely adorable!!!

So, without further delay, here is my layout!!!!


These pics were taken a couple years ago in Corpus when my nephews came down to visit for the month of June - we had so much fun at the beach with them!!!

Well, I've got lots of real work that needs to get done today. Thought I'd touch base with you all and share my Terrific Tuesday news!!!

Happy Scrappin'

Over and out ya'll.................

What a fantastic layout, I wish I could scrapbook, but sadly I can only make cards!! Scrapbooking is far too intimidating for me!!

thanks for such kind words on my blog. I would love to be mentioned on your site!!

I can totally see why that layout won!! What work in there, love all the bling!!! Sorry about the drama, I have been there and done that, you will be strong and overcome!! I still luv ya!!


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???
