Saturday Sharing...

Since I've got just a minute...

I realized that I photographed this page a few days ago and that I never posted it anywhere! So I'll post it here first!

I edited the photo in glad I'm learning how to use that program!!! Although, I know I don't even know 1% of what it will do! I used some older MME, some paper from one of those HUGE slabs that I just HAD to have, K&Co Chipboard, Adornaments fibers...

Sorry the pic isn't the greatest...

Gotta try to keep this thing up!!!

Gotta get back in the habit of posting on this thing! LOL!

Well, yesterday was the 1st day of school...Harrison's first day of first grade!!! WOW! He had a good was hard to get him up at 7:20 am, but I finally got him going. I could tell he was super tired last night though...we went to eat and he had a total meltdown in the restaurant because I told him he couldn't watch TV when we got home because it would be too late. ARGH!!!
I don't think it took him long to go to sleep last night and he was already awake when I went to get him this morning. I took him to school again today and walked him to his class...he wanted me to...AWWWWW!

More good news (we hope!) came yesterday. Mark got calls from 2 different trucking companies...and he will be headed to Atlanta on Sunday to begin training with one of them! This career change has been hard on us both...and after the horrible time he had with the last company, I can only PRAY this will be better. He knows this is our only option right now and that he's gotta stick it out...I just don't want him to be miserable! I know what it's like to be miserable in a job!!! So, if you are so inclined...please say a prayer for him!

I've been scrapping!!! Stress chased my mojo away for a few weeks...but it's slowly coming back! I finished up this page yesterday. I used the Sept '09 Guest Design Team sketch from for this one. I just hate I didn't get it finished before the deadline! It was a fun sketch to work with! Cosmo Cricket papers were used here....

Now, I'm off to finish up a page for the October GDT sketch at Back Porch Memories!!!!

WHY oh WHY can't I get a link to work on here?!?!?!? I use that little "insert link" button thingy, paste in my address, and NOTHING! PLEASE tell me what I'm doing wrong!!!

I am soooo ashamed!!!

How LONG has it been since I updated this thing??? LOL!

Hold on...gotta go get the little guy out of bed...

So...lets see. What has happened in the last 2.5 months. I did make the DT for Moments Recorded. And I could've sworn I posted here about the August Challenges!!! Well, I'll post now...GO CHECK OUT THE AUGUST CHALLENGES AT MOMENTS RECORDED!!! I had a lot of fun with them...and let me tell ya...I just finished September's...OMG! FUN! FUN! FUN! If you like to think out of the box a little and use some stuff that one normally wouldn't use...check back for September!

DH went back to school. He already had his CDL driver's license but had never used it. Since unemployment was paying, he went back again. He took a job with a company that hauls flatbed...he HATED it! Quit after Week 5 of 7 weeks training. It wasn't the driving or even the being away from was making sure those loads were secured correctly...he just couldn't get comfy with it. So, that was a week and a half ago. He started putting in applications again on Wednesday. I'm just hoping he gets a job SOON! We are beyond broke! And I'm stressing!

We did get to enjoy a short trip to Myrtle Beach. My dad called last Friday evening and asked if we wanted to go to the beach THE NEXT DAY!!! YIKES! Of course I said yes, and immediately started running around here like a chicken with my head cut off...doing laundry and packing! We came home on Tuesday. It was nice to get away...even better that we only had to buy food and gas!

Harrison starts back to school next Tuesday!! I am sooo ready! LOL! We went last night and met his teacher...she's young and spunky...I think he's gonna like her. I had a hard time getting him to leave the classroom after meeting her and seeing his desk!

With all the stress of all that's been going on scrappin' mojo LEFT THE BUILDING! And just returned about 2 days ago! I'm hoping to take advantage of it being here and get lots done while I can! Off to get started on something that I can show you!
