Silly Kiddo

I was trying to dig up some pictures of Colin and my mom emailed these three to me.


I got whatever is going around whether it is a cold or H1N1 I have no idea. I called the Dr. and they said they are only treating dehydration and difficulty breathing so I didn't even bother going. I was so sick I didn't even feel like scrapping! I literally slept from Tuesday afternoon until Friday morning. I hope whatever this is skips over all of you and your families! I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

I wish I could have played more this weekend at the AC bailey Croptoberfest but I ended up being busy. Friday night I was exhausted, Saturday I helped at the Humane Society Thrift Shop and then got to eat lunch with my niece. She was here from Mississippi. I hadn't seen her in about 2 years, we had a great lunch! Wish I could have spent more time with her though. Then Sunday we went to McCall's Pumpkin Patch.
Here is my page for Challenge #6 Fall Traditions. I scrapped my pictures from last years McCall's trip!

Freaky Friday Challenge at AC bailey

The Freaky Friday Challenge at AC Bailey this week was to scrap about a way of dress, a tradition, or a food that shows your heritage. My Memories are not only of these two tables but also the food and the cakes!
My Journaling reads:The dining room table. At our house we could easily squeeze 8-10 people around it. At my grandparents house we would squeeze in about 18-20! All celebrations were centered around those two tables. Always surrounded by family, parents, grandparents, friends, godparents, neighbors, siblings, and cousins. I have that huge table in storage and someday I will have a house big enough to hold it!
I used Marks paper Company, August Collection; Scenic Route Chipboard and Cape Town monogram stickers; Cloud 9 Designs rain dots; Bazzil cardstock; and a leftover brad and ribbon from an AC Bailey Kit of the Month (can't remember which month).

Got to scrapbook!

I got to scrap this weekend! I got a few pages done. One for the Freaky Friday challenge at AC Bailey, one using the man About town paper I just ordered and the other two using the monstrosity paper and embellies I just ordered. A friend came over to eat and scrap with me on Sunday and we had a great time!

So here are my pictures!

So I keep waking up at 5:00 a.m. I don't know why but on Saturday morning it was all worth it. Just look at this gorgeous New Mexico Sunrise!

Marcie's Wedding

I went to a friend's wedding yesterday and it was just gorgeous! I got to see some old friends and reminise. I had a great time and so did Colin. She had a beautiful dress and the groom looked very handsome. Just wanted to share some pictures.

National Card Making Day

Hey everyone! Are you interested in making cards this weekend? Well AC Bailey has another weekend of challenges lined up! The post and the link to the post are below. If you haven't already, sign up for the Forum and get to card making!

If you are here, you are interested in joining us, join millions all around the world, to share in the love of card making.While my scrapping is personally rewarding, card making brings me even greater joy as I get to share my craft -on a more intimate level, with someone else-the card recipient.Whether you are an experienced card maker, an occasional card maker, or a scrapper who has never ventured into the card making arena before, let me welcome you on behalf of the entire AC Bailey Design team!We hope you have fun and learn something interesting today - we have designed some challenges and a contest with the hopes that you will learn something new, be entertained, and motivated to create your own special cards. So,....let's get started!There is a special folder in the gallery to upload all your card images to. It is called World Card Making Day 2009.When you click on this you will see CATEGORIES (to the left) and the challenges 1-7 are listed (backwards no less). Click on the folder for the challenge you completed. Upload your image for the challenge, placing it in the proper folder. Here is your contest - our goal is to get 100 cards posted this weekend into that folder in the gallery! Help us and you could win a prize! Everyone who contributes this weekend will go into the hat once for every card added! The more you make, the more chances you get to win our Grand Prize. But-we also want QUALITY ladies, and NEW cards (not stuff you have shared before), and no card KIT kinda things-original designs please (scrap lifting is okay but you gotta cut/glue all your own papers, etc.). All cards must be posted by midnight Sunday (EST) and if we hit 100 cards sometime sooner, that is OK - keep making cards, cause each card gets one chance in the drawing.Below you will see seven challenges/tutorials prepared for you by the AC Bailey Design Team members. These are here to help you and guide you and in some cases, they may even entertain you! For each challenge/category listed below there is a prize being awarded. So, when you submit your work to the gallery folder please include it in the subfolder for the correct challenge number (1-7). Winners will be announced here Monday mid-day so check back then.If you have any questions, post them here and a DT member will help you.Have fun! Happy World Card Making Day Ladies!!!
