Watch your language!

LOL! Did that catch your attention. The challenge at Candy Shoppe Designs proves that this blog is not just any ordinary blog! You can find all the details on this challenge by going here.

Here is my layout. This is all about when I thought my dryer was broken. I was hanging my clothes to dry until my Dad could come take a look at it. Well, he took it all apart and was confused because the dryer was getting power on his meter. Well, he looks up and tells me to flip the dial....the dial the goes from AIR FLUFF to HEAT! Yes, it was never broken, I just had forgotten I set the dryer to AiR FLUFF! Well, as my brother puts it....I pulled a Jennifer. Talk about embarrassing!! Just another story for the book of funny things I do.!!
Here is a close up of the ribbon


The WINNER of this challenge will be voted for by the Lollipop Girls of C.S.D. and announced on the blog on Wednesday, October 28, 2009. The WINNER will win a 309 Piece Collection Kit by Sassafras Lass called "Starry Night" from the Life is Beautiful Line.

Proud Mom!

I had a very proud Mom moment on Saturday. Natalie scored her first goal in soccer!! I am so proud of her. It was such a rainy, chilly day and she really did an outstanding job playing. This is the same girl that walked off the field crying the first week because she thought she was bad at soccer. Unfortunately, I think the weather weakened her immune system because she woke up Sunday with a 102 temp. She took today off from school and is doing much better.
Here is my worn out girl walking back to the car in the wet, chilly weather
We went to Micky D's to do some celebrating

Ta ta for now....I am so proud of Natalie that I feel this deserves it's own blog post. :)

Fashionably Geek Challenge at Candy Shoppe Designs

The Fashionably Geek Challenge is posted on Candy Shoppe Designs!

Here is the layout I did.
We had to use a black background, white title, plaid and an apple. My apple is on the cover of the Twilight book. I had to do a layout about these books. I started reading the Twilight book this Summer and was completely hooked! I actually read it to prove that you don't get hooked...well, that didn't happen. I had the next 2 books on reserve a the library but went and bought them because I couldnt' wait that long until it was my turn. LOL. Would you believe I am reading Breaking Dawn right now and have not finished it!? I have had it for about 2 months, too. I think I don't want my Twilight series to end. Anywho, here is my layout and some close ups. I wanted to use a lot of luxurious items on my layout to replicate the lifestyle of the vampires in the book...pearls, bling and velvet.

Fashionably Geek Challenge
Due Date: Midnight (est) Monday, October 10, 2009
Oh! You didn't know that "Geek" was the new "Black?" Well, now you know! Let's rock this Challenge in the name of all geeks!
Rules are simple.....

-The base of your Paper Creation should be BLACK. It doesn't have to be all black or even plain black, but black. With that said, you don't have to create a layout. It can be any kind of Paper Creation (a layout, a card, a mini album, an altered item, etc.).
-The title/journaling on your Paper Creation (should you choose to add one) should be WHITE.
-You must include a PLAID, CHECKERED or ARGYLE PRINT and
-You must include an APPLE. It doesn't matter how many.
Already created a Paper Creation that fits into these rules? Awesome! Go ahead and enter it into the Challenge! They don't need to be new.

We are doing away with the POINT SYSTEM and instead strictly going by the voting from the Lollipop Girls from now on. So, do your best job and Good Luck! The Winner will be announced on 14 October.
