Crazy I joined Blogger this past December and did all my post from the library or at a sisters house. Wow! I can now do this posting stuff from the comfort of my own place. I was however able to post comments and check out everybody's updates thru my ipod touch. So the bf thought I was obsessed with blogging before he hasn't seen nothing yet. lol
Another funny thing well I'm usually in bed like an hour ago. I can't seem to sleep, I did just get the laptop today.
I did have time to make a card last night before I went to bed. My sister Barby lives in Kentucky and wanted to make sure to send a Easter greeting.
Well have a good night to all! Talk to you sooner then later! :O)

My weekend was fun considering the non-stop headache. Friday we went shopping for a bit. Saturday met my sister Lisa for breakfast. My little family went shopping, then went to my niece's sweet 16 party. After I was dropped off at my mom's church for a music concert. My mom is in the choir. This was the best one that I've gone too so far. Very uplifting! A friend from work showed up she just moved down the street from the church. I believe she enjoyed herself. I sat by my aunt and mother's boyfriend. I took a pic of my mom and aunt they both looked so nice that night.
Well hope everyone has a great week!
I have a busy one and hope to get some more challenges done. Chat with ya later!

Btw....I figured out how to make my own banner. I wanted to use a photo that I had taken, came across this pic that I had taken a few years ago at Heritage Park in Taylor. I just love the blooms on this tree! Still learning stuff, slowly, but learning at least. Here's a question someone might be able to help me with. I type out the whole website and want to know how do I do it where it says click here and it'll take you directly to the place? Or like I can write the blog site to visit by using the name and you can click on it to be directed there? I hope I am explaining this right. If you know please share, that would be the best.
Have a fabulous weekend all!

My plan to lose weight before vacation yeah, not so much! Just gotta accept what it is, still gonna have fun anyways. I need some shorts, gotta go shopping soon. Gotta start tanning as well, I'm very fair and I only go tanning before a trip to get a good base going otherwise I'll be a lobster on the trip and I don't like that one bit. Wanna have fun, not be miserable. So I plan ahead, even if it means getting a start with a fake bake, like I said before I only do this just before a trip.
My boss is leaving for Key West tomorrow and he was telling me about some areas to visit when I go. Have any of you been before? Any places we should check out?
Well I must get off this computer now, and get busy, have a good day to all.

I had alot of fun creating this card. We've had great weather the past couple weeks, however the weekends haven't been as nice, strange wouldn't you say? So it was nice to create a springy card while it was quite chilly and gloomy outside yesterday.
Friday evening Lucas got to spend the night at my mom's, first time ever! He loved it and said he would want to go there again soon. The bf and I went to Wyandotte for 3rd Friday. That city holds this all year, you walk around the shops stay open late, and there usually is a theme each month. Afterwards we went to a friends house for a bonfire. Perfect weather!
Saturday was just lazy!
Sunday my sister and I went to a GREAT! Scrapbook Event, sort of a expo....got the best deal and was so happy! I love my Creative Memories albums. Well some of you may know that they discontinued the very short lived landscape album (10x12). I have 2 of these and have needed refill pages for quite some time. They had 2 refills & pg protectors for 50% off. Woot! Woot!
So I've babbled enough, sorry if I went on for too long, but when you have such a great weekend its easy to babble. Have a excellent week my fellow creative bloggers!
BTW....check out my sister's new blog she is new to the blog world and has only posted once so far, and really its an introduction.....at www.scrappylos.blogspot.com

Well I joined the blog hop over at http://www.spcolorcombos.blogspot.com/ this past weekend and they had a "going green" color challenge. You had to use the color combo that you see below and reuse something as your green item. Colors were awesome, "green" item was a bit of a challenge in itself for me. I decided to use some crumpled up tissue paper and dabbed it on a inkpad to white textured paper for color and it looks sort of like marble. Is that "green" enough?
I combined this challenge with another over at http://www.a-scrapaddicts-sketches.blogspot.com/ here are the songs that you had to choose from:
TIME Hootie and the Blowfish**HAVE I TOLD YOU LATELY Rod Stewart**I DON'T FEEL LIKE DANCIN' Scissor Sisters**MORE BEAUTIFUL YOU Jonny Diaz** FIREFLIES Owl City
Their sketch was pretty wonderful too!
So using the color combo from SPCC, and the sketch & song from Just My Sketches...I believe I came out with a really nice and fun LO. I chose the Rod Stewart song, one reason is its the only song that I knew. Second, I chose what I thought was a perfect lyric from the song, "You Fill My Life with Laughter!"
So I hope you enjoy my page as I did enjoy creating it.
Have a great day no matter how you celebrate!

My first card here is for the SPCC #38
Serious? My coloring is off again. I think the computer at home needs to have some adjusting. I saw bright pink. Well either way it was fun using the colors that I did, cuz I normally would not. You should go to http://www.spcolorcombos.blogspot.com/ to see what the other entries are, beautiful stuff for sure!
My second challenge #43 is over at http://www.allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/ this week they chose a color combination. I got to work w/ my favorite colors, black, pink & white. Awesome!
Well its time to start this week off, and I actually have Tuesday and Friday off so I'm hoping to finish the other challenges that I started. Happy for the lazy rainy days this past weekend. BTW the weather channel is calling for sunshine all week and next weekend will be more rain. Oh yea, my sister and I are going to Macomb Community College for a Scrapbook show. Yay for us!

Bright sunny days here in Michigan, we needed it. We've already had like 3 days of sunshine. The weather reports for 7 more days of sun and in the 40's all week. Love it! Let's hope its true. I woke up super early this morning and was able to make a card for a friend. She contacted me last week through text and as it would have been great to talk with her, texting is what I got. So I made a card for her this morning, letting her know that its time to go have lunch. Plus, I was able to use the card for challenges this week. While at home making the card I had ran out of tape runner, really how could I let this happen, no refills on hand. Then my ribbon adhesive maker ran out. Really? So I do complete the card and then I look at the card on the way to work in this super sun shiny day and the ribbon is more of green then baby blue. Yea so I need some better lighting at home. lol....well I have to get busy, I'll be posting soon! Hope your having
BRIGHT SUNNY DAYS TOO!
So I am bummed that the ribbon is slightly off color, even more bummed that in the photo it really looks off. I still like the card though, thanks for the challenges at over at PPC-CC #2 & Carols Sketch Fun #21. Their links to their blogs are:
