Oh how I have missed my NASCAR! Glad the season is back in full swing!

GO GORDON! You will be in the winners circle next week!!

Mad rush

Trying to get my layouts done before I head out of town this week. I have to go to Chicago for a Dental Convention. Sine has some really cool templates coming out on Friday. Here's a few layouts using them. Kristin has a really cool new kit coming out and I got those layouts done. But can't post. The Ettes have a new kit coming out as well. Got 3 layouts done using that kit. But can't post those either. So yes, you can say I had a productive few days. But not much to show for it! LOL

So I am still dealing with this sinus crap. I have now developed a nice cough to go along with the stuff nose. Life is just so unfair.

My sister and I went to Ikea yesterday. Had a blast. Took along a little friend of mine too. Can't really go into details on that little event yet either! LOL So secretive, aren't I?
I promise once I can share all this fun stuff with you all, I will.

I have been short one son all weekend. The oldest went to stay with his Aunt Abby in Bowling Green. Josh has been gone all day. Work. So it's just been Willy Bob and I home alone all day today. He's been playing Club Penguin and coloring all day. And I have been on the computer getting stuff done.

So I suppose you all want the back story on the weird al layout huh?! LOL Well, my girlfriend/coworker wore this half wig to work on Thursday and for whatever reason, my boss got the bright idea he was going to put it on. Well I didn't believe him. And when he walked into the room at lunch with it on, he literally scared me. I jumped because I had no clue he had put it on. You know how you can just tell when someone is standing behind you, well I turned to look because I knew he walked up behind me. Well this is what I saw! I ran to get my camera. And he actually stood there and let me take his picture. Silly silly man. Does he not comprehend the word BLACKMAIL?! We laughed very hard for awhile and little did we know that our next patients had come into the office. And we are all are in the back laughing so hard. So I ran up to use the restroom before lunch was over and there they were. Sitting there in the lobby wondering what in the heck was happening because we were laughing so hard and loud they heard us. So he of course had to go up front and show them. Oh...days like this make all the crappy ones worth it! He really does have a great sense of humor when he chooses to share it. It's just that he doesn't share it very often.
Well I also made the comment that it looked like a mop. And I said it reminded me of the swiffer commerical where the mop keeps trying to get back inside. And the song, Baby Come Back, is playing in the background. So all day long...we would move our own mop around the office with a sign on it that read, "Baby Come Back". It was extremely funny! It would be in the bathroom, the break room, the kitchen, our exam rooms, the waiting room. You get the idea. Cathy would stick it up behind the door so only I could see it and make me laugh while working on a patient. And then my last patient put on the wig and had it on when he walked into my room to do her exam! It was a classic!

Ok I have the strangest child in the world. Zander is just such a nut. I don't know whatelse to say about him. He wraps my scarf around his head and walks around the house like that for a while the other day. I asked him what he was doing and he just looks at me and muffles thru the scarf: Being a terrorist. Like it was just the dumbest question I could have asked him. So that really gets me thinking. He's 10. I can't even imagine what runs thru his mind about that topic at age 1o. How sad is that we live in a nation that kids that young know about stuff like that? I am sure someone along the way will take offense to his comment but hey, its called REAL LIFE deal with it. I am sorry he has to even know what they look like. And I am not going to cover my tracks and not share something just because it might offend. Tough toenails folks...unfortunately that's life now. And sometimes the truth is painful.

ADSR Challenge #12

This challenge was an Intersection: Meaning one layout but both of us had to work on it.
The challenge was to talk about how you got into scrapbooking and what it means to you.
You had to include a picture of each racer in the lower right corner with the whole focus on your journaling. You had to have atleast 5 embellishments and no more than 2 sheets of paper and you had to use their word art (we are StoryTellers).
Journaling can be read by clicking on the layout, it will take you to the printed words.

ADSR Challenge #11

So...What the heck you might be saying?! LOL The challenge was to ask someone ONE Question. It could be anyone, Dead or Alive, Friend or foe. I chose as my SOMEONE, Hannibal Lector! LOL I wanted to know, "Is it true that you don't eat clowns because they taste funny?"

It's a burning question and one that I want answered. My next choice was the Trix Rabbit. I was going to ask him, " Why ARE trix just for kids?" or how about: "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop?" See there are things that keep me awake at night. I am not nor will I ever be a DEEP THINKER. Its all about the humor with me folks. Anyone who knows me, can back me up on this one. I can count on one hand the number of times I did anything that required truly DEEP THOUGHTS. Even my own wedding had humor built right into it. As did the birth of my children and anything else that have ever meant something to me for the most part. So if you don't like this, tough. I didn't do it for you!

Be My Guest - Ettes and Co.

Here's another soon to be released kit by the Ettes called Be My Guest. It was originally put together to be parts and pieces of a book that could be used at weddings, showers, funerals, etc. You know...a guest book. But since I don't like to use things for their original intent, I did a birthday layout! LOL
