Here is my FF this week. Last year we took the boy camping and he had a blast, met some boys around his age, fished, played, had a leach on his ankle, got to be in the Noise Parade. It was a good weekend.
On a side note, I've had to make some changes for a little bit at work. My son is struggling so much at school, and as I announced a couple of post back he is ADHD. We have decided to put him on medication and until that happens I've decided to go part-time at work. I HOPE this gives him what he needs to make it through the school day. He was only at school one day this week. November 1st I'll be back to my regular schedule hopefully. I can't really afford to not bring home a 40 hour check. Its a sacrifice I made to stand by my child and do what is finally right for him.
Have a good weekend, enjoy and create if you have time. I'm going to try!

It happens so much that he isn't included fun outings, because of his behavior. That isn't fair. Look at him playing in the water, guess what he was so good that day, anytime we take him there actually. I want him to be included, I want friends to last, I want adults to enjoy being around him. I'd like him to be invited someplace for once. Instead of us always having to do the inviting.
I believe alot of answers will be answered tonight. I also believe some things are going to take time to happen. I've waited this long and so has he, we will get through this.

I have less then 2 weeks to my weekender in Traverse City, Michigan! YES! I can't wait, so for the next few days I'll be getting every sorted and packed so its smooth sailin' as I get out the door and away for 3 days. Yay me! Is anyone else going on weekender anytime soon?
I'm out I am going to look for a new car this afternoon. Not brand new of course, my car went kaputs on me and well, I need something like now. Just looking for a 4 door dependable, non-Chrysler car, under $8000.
I'm out, peace!

Welcome Friday, I've been waiting patiently all week for your arrival. I don't have much planned for this weekend. Yay! I only have yoga on Saturday, a new found love for wanting to get in shape and adding yoga has been great. WW is going good down 8.4 lbs. Woo Hoo! Also dinner at Outback to celebrate my neices 17th birthday. That's it, I'm hoping nothing comes up just want to spend time at home w/ my fam. Lame I'm sure, but thats just what I want to do. :O)
My LO for FF is from 2008 a trip to Vegas w/ the sisters. It was a great trip and this particular LO has no journaling but thats ok. We were at Caesars Palace just shopping and drinking and gambling and people watching. We had a nice relaxing day. I love the flower brads and the groovey background paper. Well hope everyone has an awesome weekend, I'm off to work now.
I LOVE MY SISTERS!

So I found this very boring frame at a local store, it had no price but I decided to purchase it anyways, and when I got to the checkout it was only $3. Nice price!
I didn't like the white matte so I removed it.
My plan when I saw it at the store was to take it home and jazz it up a bit. That's exactly what I did. I took some red cardstock and and circle punch and added them to the black matte.
From there I took some very inexpensive embellishments w/ a bit of red bling to add to it. Flowers and swirls can't go wrong w/ that at all. Got the bling from a dollar store. This particular dollar store the best stuff for scrapbooking, its unbelieveable actually.
A side note about this crafty frame that I did, the man was so very impressed and even said we should check out people's color scheme's in their houses and give to them as gifts. Too funny, well actually I could. I will think about it :O) I just love when the man puts his input about crafts.

Just below are 2 photo's of my boy this week:
Here he is gettin' ready to drive to his new school (that I love) my big shot going into 1st grade on Tuesday!
And here he is gettin' on the bus this chilly Friday morning, and he was so nervous first time riding a bus, he wouldn't even look at me for a pic. He was unsure, but last night he couldn't sleep because he was so excited to finally get to ride the bus. He'll be fine I'm sure. See ya after work Mister Man.

I need sleep, must go to bed.....just remembered I bought new pillows today, oh yea the bed is calling. Good Night!
This was on our first day and it was so hot, we already had lunch and went for some reason to go check on our rental car. We stopped for ice cream, and debated should we jump on this pedi-bike or hike it back to our other 2 sisters. We jumped on and when we found our sisters they were in this bar and I yelled out, "Hey what up girls!" You should have seen them laughing their booties off. That's them through that groovey window, but you can't see it. It was funny.
Here was the first southernmost spot, everyone knows this spot, I'm sure you've all seen it before. Strange to know that Cuba is only 90 miles away from that spot. Never realized it was so close.
This was the view from our 2nd floor room. My mom and aunt have this beautiful place that we got to stay at. How could you not fall in love w/ Key West. That's some serious viewing right there. We were thankful they invited us to stay with them. That condo really is nice and something to think about myself in the future.
Absolutely beautiful, and they were taken at the condo.
More condo flowers, that just took my breath away. The beauty of the flowers in Key West had to be one of my favorite things about that place.
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day. My son starts school tomorrow and its a big day a new school, all new friends and I'll be off until Wednesday and have to return to the dreaded Renaissance Center on Thursday to get some work done. Ugh! At least I only have a 2 day work week, can't complain there. I'm off here to get my boy and go have breakfast w/ him and my mom. I'll be scrapping some more this afternoon and will probably try to finish Key West.

Good Morning, I hope everyone's weekend is a good one. I've been busy all weekend scrappin' and doing a few other things that I just love, love, love.
I created this card this morning for my nephew, it is his 7th birthday. His party is this afternoon and my son is so excited he doesn't get to his cousin to often.
I used the color combo over at Scrapmaster's Paradise, check out that blog if you get a chance she always post some really good color scheme's.
I'll be posting another soon I started scrapping Friday night some pages from my Key West trip. Have a great day!

So here is my Flashback Friday LO. I really love the colors that I used. We were at my work and it was during the Detroit River Days. A nice time just him, me and my Mom.

I had posted this layout last night, but would you believe I was dreaming about scrapbooking last night and thought of a picture to add. Very simple fix and a neccessary one at that. I just found a blog the other day and it has Cricut challenges. Check out Fantabulous Cricut, they require that you use something done on your page using the Cricut and they do give a theme. Well I originally had the interstate sign w/ a word in it. I remembered in my dream that I took a picture of Jeep in front (my man's) of us. We drove both cars and our son thought it would be cool to take a photo of dad ahead of us. So I put that pic in the interstate sign to really make sure I was meeting challenge theme, which is a road trip.
So now that I feel I've met the challenge completely I can re-post and get my day started. I used the Summer Vacation cartridge. Wal-mart had it available for like $15 or $20 at the beginning of summer. I've wondered if it was a Wal-mart exclusive, not sure. Do you know?
Well I must get off here and get ready for super busy day. It is a paid day off for me so I'm going to get busy and get home and maybe scrap some more. Be crafty, hugs for all!
And a sidenote August's LoveLeigh Poll is up and the question was "What type of Scrapper are you?" Well the results showed 66% stick with traditional scrapbooking.
Check out the new LoveLeigh Poll for September!
