This has been a GOOD day!!!

Let be begin by saying, WOW!!!

Last Friday, I got an email from my local scrapbook store (LSS for those who aren't in the know!) about their 4th anniversary sale on Sat and Sun. Well, I ended up going on Saturday because I wanted to earn quadruple points on my frequent shopper card! LOL! Well, I remembered there was a grand prize that would be given away to someone who made a purchase over the weekend. I got a call this evening and I WON!!! It's a Karen Foster Scrapseat tote thing filled with scrappy goodies! A $250 value!!!!!

So, I've still got my head in the clouds over my great score when I get a private message on a scrappy site I frequent...they want me to be a Guest Designer for them for the month of October!!! I would post the site name, but I don't know if it's been officially announced on their site yet.

I should've bought that lottery ticket at lunch!

Well, didn't make the DT at Memorable Seasons...

so, I move on! LOL!

Go to www.backporchmemories.com and see what I created for the GDT call for November! Now that I think about it, maybe I should've used more "seasonal" pics...KWIM??? The pics are of the boys at the beach...this is for NOVEMBER! LOL!
Actually, here's a link:


I like this one okay...I feel like I'm in a design "rut" and keep doing the same thing over and over! I wanna have one of those "Eureka!" moments and do something that's really over the top!

I'm stalking...

The Memorable Seasons MB today...they will be announcing their new Design Team members today...maybe I'll be one of them! I don't wanna get my hopes up though...lots of tallent there! But what attracted me to the call was that the requirements of a DT member there are very doable for me! I wanna be on a DT, but I don't wanna stress over it either. We'll see later today I guess!

Same old, same old here...boys going to school, me playing on the computer or at my scrappy desk. We are getting our FREE carpet installed today! YAY! A comfier place in the basement for the boys to play! Got the carpet on CraigsList...it's used, but the boys are gonna destroy it probably anyway! LOL! I guess I'll be cleaning carpet later!

Took H & N to the dentist this morning. Nevan was the one I worried about and he was an angel for them! Harrison on the other hand pitched a major fit! Dr. Bill finally got him settled enough to take care of him. He's gotta go back in a month to get sealants put on his 6-year molars that are already in! We got a nice little prescription of VALIUM for that day! LOL! That's gonna be FUN-NY!!!!

Here's a few pics I've taken with the new "baby"! LOL!
