Wow...didn't realize it had been so long!!

Life is a whirlwind right now...I'm doing lots of subbing at the Y and Soccer season is about to begin. Add that to the everyday stuff and geesh!! I don't know if I'm coming or going!!! I'm so busy in fact, that I'm not even throwing the big birthday party for Pierson's 4th birthday!!! I feel bad about it...but not too bad! LOL!

I can't even believe it's mid week already!!!

We've got a BIG announcement (that I should've already announced here!!!) at Cookin' Up Creations Tomorrow starts our CROP CHEF Contest!!!! Do you have what it takes to become our Crop Chef and earn a spot as our guest designer for May??? I think you need to head right on over and get signed up to play along! I post the first challenge tomorrow!!!!

I've been asked...

to design for NUTS ABOUT SKETCHES!!! I'm super excited about this gig since I LOVE sketches so much!!! I've already received the sketches for this month and can't wait to get started!! For those who don't know, Nuts about Sketches is a sketch blog (obviously!) and Shawn issues a new sketch every Monday! Please go check it out!!!

And now that the team has been announced, I'll share the page I submitted for the call! Here's what the sketch looked like:

And here's my page!

I was so happy when I saw the sketch because I've had these pictures printed out for over a year...just sitting on my desk. And this sketch worked out perfectly for them!!! I used papers from Me and My Big Ideas and I cut the cute little turtles using the "Stretch Your Imagination" cart for my Cricut.

So, go ahead and go check out Nut About Sketches and bookmark the site! I promise it will be great inspiration!

I've got exciting news!!!

But I can't tell you yet!!! Hee! Hee! I will tell you it's scrappy related...that way you won't go speculating about weather or not I'm gonna have another offspring!!! LOL!

I broke down and went to the doctor yesterday. Felt like I was coughing up the Fires of Hell!!! It's definitely the flu...but he gave me an inhaler to help calm down my inflamed chest area and a nasal spray to help me breath...although I'm not sure the nasal spray is working. Thought I was gonna get to send H back to school today, but he decided to run a fever again yesterday afternoon...UGH. One of these days, we'll all be back to normal!

Remember yesterday when I said we were going Mad about Sketches at Cookin' Up Creations this month??? Well, I got to serve up the first challenge today!!! This is the sketch I created:

And here's my card!

Wanna know how I created the background??? Well, go on over to the Technique Tuesday BPS Challenge forum and find out! I'll even give you a LINK! to attempt fixing dinner for the first time in a week. I guarantee it's gonna be something REALLY quick! LOL!
