It's Friday!!!!

OK for some Friday is an exciting thing, for me, it is everday life in our household since I'm not working right now. I have to admit I am loving this SAHM stuff!!!

Well, as of this week I have finished my first term of school!!! YAY!!! Go me!!! As of right now I have a 4.0 GPA but my final for Med Law has not been recorded in the gradebook so that is still up in the air. I know I missed 7 out of 200 on that final so I am just waiting patiently to get the final grade!!! OK, not so patient but I can't make it happen any faster............LOL

So today is my day at Just Scrappin' to host a challenge. Since people don't seem to scrap themselves as often as they scrap everything else, I decided my challenge would be a ME challenge. So, if you need to do a ME page or just want to stop by and see what is going on please do so!!! We have quite a few challenges going on right now and you have until Wednesday the 8th to finish them all and upload - well, except for the 1 hour challenge on Tuesday and then you have, well, 1 hour!!! LOL

On to my challenge:

I want you to start out by making a list of the 5 things you like the LEAST about yourself or the 5 things you like the MOST about yourself or a combo of the two!!! Then, I want you to scrap your list in any fashion you see fit as long as you use ONLY one picture and that picture must be of YOURSELF!!!

Now I know this might be a difficult challenge for everyone – it was for me – but all I ask is that you give it a try. The only stipulation for this challenge is that you include 5 things you like the least, 5 things you like the most or a combo of the 2 AND the only one picture on the page is of you– that is it!!!

The prize for this challenge will be a K&Co. Accordion Book Kit (over 225 pieces in it) AND some of the sticker stash I cleaned out!!! Plus whatever else I may throw in there as I have a good box of stuff I’m working on purging!!!

My page is titled:

5 Things About Me

The tags say:

I love that I’m very trusting and forgiving – but I hate this too. I seem to get hurt a lot!!

I hate that I faint at the sight of my own blood or a needle!!

I love my addictive personality when it comes to some things but it sure is a curse for other things!!!

I hate that I scream and run like a girl when I see a mouse!!

I love that I can be happy no matter where I am at as long as I have my family!!

And now for my LO:


Oh, wanna know about the picture??? I tried something different and printed it onto Bazzill textured cardstock – I really like the effect!!!

Materials List:

CS = Bazzill
PP = Cherry Arte
Overlay = Hambly
Ribbon = Misc From Stash
Flowers = American Crafts, Fancy Pants
Rub-on = Cherry Arte
Tags = K&Co. covered with Bazzill CS
Thickers = American Crafts

If you join in on this challenge outside of the site link back here with your creation and I'll send out a little prize to one lucky poster!!!

Off to play and scrap today!!! Happy Scrappin' ya'll!!!!

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???
