Now if you haven't done WO #26 or #27, then you need to do that one and then do the mini! So go get busy!!! Can't wait to see what you create!!!

Just a quick note to myself...

Tonight was "Meet the Teacher" night at the boy's school...I think we're gonna have a great year!!! Just hope we can get Harrison motivated and LIKING school this year!

And Nevan came home, hit his mouth on something...he never cried or anything...just comes to tell me he has a loose tooth! Well, he wouldn't leave the thing alone and ended up pulling it! So, I guess we'll get a visit from the toothfairy tonight! LOL

It's the 15th...

And I am LATE for a VERY important date! Leave it to me! LOL!

There's a NEW challenge up at scrapFIT today!!!! And it's a fun one! I'm actually getting ready to hand the card I made over to it's recipient in just a few minutes!

Today's challenge is to "Dress it up"!!! Use your bling, your sparkle and your shine! Also use some black since The Little Black Dress Kit Club is our sponsor.

And here's the card I created for this workout...I printed the swirl on my computer and colored it in using watercolor pencils. Then I added black Stickles for the outlines. I embossed a piece of black cardstock using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and added some clear "bling" to a few of the circles. I also added glossy accents over those Making Memories Tiny Alphas...but it's hard to see it!

Hope you guys have fun "Dressing it up" this week! Can't wait to see what you create!

PS...Our Blog Hop is still going on! You have until Midnight on Wednesday to participate for the fun prizes!!!

Blog hopping that is!!!! If you just stumbled upon my blog and this is your first stop, you should really take the time to start at the beginning! Go to the ScrapFit Workout Blog to start! If you started there, then you should be coming here from Dayna's Blog.

Also, please go visit our fabulous blog hop sponsors!!! Scrapfreak and ScrapStreet. Without them,
We wouldn't be able to have 2 Grand Prize Winners!! One will get a $25 Giftcard to ScrapStreet and the other will get to choose a KIT from Scrapfreak!! Isn't that cool?!?!?!

I was really getting worried that I wouldn't be able to post this this morning! There was a wreck yesterday evening that took out a power pole! We didn't lose power here, but our internet must have been on that pole! UGH! Talk about stressing! You can imagine how happy I was when I got up and could log on!

For those who don't know me...I'm the newest member of the scrapFIT DT. Kelly emailed me last week and asked me to replace someone who had to step down. I was thrilled to be asked to join such a talented group! I really look forward to the challenges every two weeks and hope that I can grow in my creativity while hopefully inspiring you guys too!

Oh!!! About those Grand might one WIN them??? WELL...Kelly just posted an awesome challenge in honor of Scrapfit's First Birthday! (Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you...I'm singing!) Here's my page for the challenge:

Exciting news...

that I can't share yet! LOL! I know, it's killing you guys not knowing, but I'm waiting on an email to make sure it's set in stone! I'll let you know today, for sure! How 'bout a scrappy page I did yesterday for the LAST Camp-Friendzy Bonus Challenge at The last challenge was post by me and all you had to do was scraplift someone from Scrap-Friendzy. Sounds easy...but picking ONE to life was horrible!! LOL! So I lifted the VERY talented Amy G. Here's how my page turned out...

So, what's been going on on the homefront? Nevan had his tonsils and adenoids removed on Monday morning. He's doing pretty good...not drinking as much as I'd like him to be, but he's a stubborn 5 year old! He must have a wish to go back to the hospital to get an IV. He is eating a LOT of popsicles and icecream, so maybe he'll be okay. He's had some pain, which the doc's said at his age, it could go either way. I've been giving him the GOOD meds about 2x a day. Too bad they don't knock him out! Instead, he feels better and then he wants to run around the house...something he's not supposed to be doing! I sure am gonna be glad when he's recouperated!!!

I teach my FIRST ever TurboKick Class a week from tomorrow! I'm about 95% ready...eeekkk! I've got to get the Recovery sections down pat and I think I'll do okay...let's hope anyway! I would love to get some TurboWear, but man! It's expensive! Might try to find something else that will do. I wish my favorite pants weren't falling apart! They would be PERFECT! Too bad they are 7 years old and I'll NEVER find another pair like them...

Well, off to do the everyday mundane tasks of laundry and dishwashing! Gotta do something while I wait on that email! :)
