Catching up I have had alot to catch up on I think I posted like 8 times today already....LOL...Here are a few of the layouts that I have been working on lately.....

So Jake startred the 3rd grade this year...yes I said the 3rd grade (sniff - sniff) albeit two days later than scheduled due to FAY making here way over to us.

But he did start and his teacher seems very nice her name is Mrs. Solomon and she was so sweet to Jake on the 1st day of school she showed him where to put all his stuff (notice his big kid messenger bag...) and where his new desk is. Yep...Jake's got his own desk no more table to share with others. I think he was pretty excited about having his own desk this year. Even though it doesnt look like it in the picture he was pretty geeked up about it. So here's hoping that he has a great year!

Lovin' ETSY and Pick of the Week!

OK...I just ordered these super uber cute cards from ETSY made by my friend Alexandra.....I have been looking for some cute cards and I think I just found them....Thanks Alex...can't wait to get them! Definitly check out if you haven't already - they have all handmade stuff at really great prices!

I've decided that every Wednesday I am going to have a pick of the here is my pick of the week....

It's Basic Grey Ambrosia...need I say anymore....I did a layout using this line and LOVED it.....This is a layout I did that is not quite finished yet but it will give you an idea of how I used the line. All this scrappy goodness can be found at my favorite scrap shoppe - Scrapbook Central!

You know your day is going downhill when.....

The only thing that will make you feel better after just feeling soooo tired and blah is an amazing bowl of chicken and vegetable soup. This is what I had my heart set on today for lunch....I go to the same place pretty much daily for this amazing soup...I really thought I'd be eating alone today...have a nice peaceful lunch...nope I had company today for lunch....this is what joined me in my soup today.....LOL

I tried to find a cute ant picture because the ant that graced me with it's presence today (in my soup)...not sooo cute!

So needless to say I didn't get to enjoy my soup today....I'm thinking I shouldn't have gotten out of bed today....LOL

Oh...and I already mentioned that I didnt get on the Fancy Pants Design like I said...should have stayed in bed today...LOL

No Fancy Pants DT for me...... I actually took a HUGE step and submitted some stuff to the Fancy Pants Design Team call...needless to say I did not get it......But that's OK. In fact the scary thing is that I didn't even realize that they were making the announcement last night. I found out from my girl Laverne while I was stalking her blog. So I got a little excited yesterday and patiently waited for the announcement...only for them to finally half - announce by saying that they were sending emails to the new picks and waiting for them to accept.....not sure I really liked that concept...most people actually applied to be picked...LOL So if you are one of the few that got picked and chose NOT to accept....uhhmmmm HELLLLLOOOOO....LOL

So that's the scoop for today still me with no Fancy Pants DT label.....but again, that's OK....I am sure that LaVerne will force me to try again next year! Love ya LaVerne!

Now if i can finally get out of the fog of this past weekend and catch up I would be great! We worked so hard this weekend as SDV (Scrapper's Dream Vacation). It was ALOT of fun but ALOT of work. Sleep is VERY limited! Then coming home and rolling right back into work and the kiddo.....hectic I tell ya.

Hope everyone has a great day! I will be posting some things that I worked on this weekend at SDV...I just need to find my camera.

Off to Orlando.....

Well...getting ready for my trip to Orlando for SDV (Scrappers Dream Vacation). Looking forward to seeing all the wonderful ladies from last year - not to mention some of our regulars at the store. What I am not looking forward to is the drive....I really hate driving to is really a boring ride....But that aside it should be a great weekend even though I have to work the whole weekend...LOL

So...I have recently gotten involved in this amazing business opportunity that some of you may have already heard of....Shop To Earn.... Well all I can truly say is...FABULOUS!!! I dont know why I didnt do this sooner. I had a few people tell me about it a few months back and I kinda blew it off..didnt think it was for me...well another friend told me about it and asked me to look into and see what I thought...well I joined I became a broker...and I am SOOOOO glad I did! This is such a GREAT opportunity especially if you are looking to make some extra cash. Which I was. And I promise you all its super EASY! So check it out...let me know what you

I am really excited about this adventure...and for all of you who know my husband - you know the skeptic that he can be..well he loves this concept..That says alot

Less than 24 hours to go....

and School starts! I am thrilled that school is starting again but I am also sad....summer's are so much easier - no homework - no worrying about the 4000 things that you have to bring to school - no arguing...LOL It's bittersweet if you know what I mean. But Jake is ready - he got to meet his new 3rd grade (yes...I said 3rd grade) teacher - her name is Mrs.Solomon and she seemed very nice and fun! She got off to a great start with Jake - he ran around telling everyone who his new 3rd grade teacher was...that's pretty big! So now I get to spend my absolute LAST day of summer cleaning Jake's room and trying to get somewhat organized before tomorrow when the truckload of papers and stuff start to come home!

And after all this is done tonight I will be sitting out back by my pool drinking a whole bottle of wine!!! Anyone want to join me you know where I will be!

Bring on the STRESS!

OK..Did it again...look who else I look like....LOL. Can't you tell I am bored tonight! I was stalking LaVerne's blog where she came across this Celebrity Facial Recognition site....It was kinda cool....My 1st attempt did NOT go very well. I used a picture of me with my hair up and glasses on and it shot back 8 lovely celebrities....only they were all men and Jeannine Garoffolo(?) she's kinda like a man...LOL needless to say I was TOTALLY depressed after that...LOL. Then I gave it another whirl and this is who they came up with....

Lazy Saturday.....

Just a nice Staurday...chilling at home. It's a total PJ day! These are some of the things that I have been working on. I used the new Three Bugs in a Rug - Autumn line. Totally lovin' it. These are some of my absolute favorite colors to use.

Hope everyone has a nice lazy saturday.....
