Missing you and THE DAILY DIGI!!!

I'm so excited to be able to spill the beans!  I'm one of the featured November designers over at The Daily Digi!  I'm flattered to be over there with all the other talented thankful!!! Perfect for November, huh!  :)

Make sure ya run over and read my little bio....and allll the way at the bottom ya may find something useful!  ;)  Especially when I tell you about........

It's been a rough few weeks... I'm glad to have my friends.   Unfortunately, most of my BEST friends live in other states.   I'm glad to have FB and texting! 

I've been knocking this around in my head for a's Missing You.
I'll have to come back with some examples.... I am so freaking late all the time that my CT hasn't had time to play with it!  I believe I can knock some layouts out tomorrow.

I've been without internet last night and alllllll I'm frantically trying to catch up.  They're working on the street down the block from me and keep hitting something that takes out my entire block's cable.  FUN.

And speaking of layouts, I stumbled across this chick at DST and fell IN LOVE with her gallery.   Oh the next day I went to figure out who this scrap star was...and it turns out that it's Sandra, or you may recognize her as Chengie!  Where in the world have I been?  This is what happens when I neglect my scrapping!  LOL   It seems that I've seen her name around and didn't put two and two together that it was her.  Anyway.... she's incredibly talented and I plan on lifting her entire gallery!  hehe
I just had to give a little shout out to her! :)

Alright, it's past 2 am and I need to get some sleep! Peace out suckahs.  Errr...I mean, have a lovely evening!

I am template challenged.

There, I said it.  I don't know WHY I'm like this....there are so many amazing ones to choose from.  I also see everyone ROCKING them out.   Lately, I've been trying to get back into doing challenges and scrapbooking more.  Then, I notice a lot of them involve templates!   LOL   But, I've sucked it up and really tried....I'm just never really happy with the outcome.   Maybe I'm just stuck in my old school style of scrapping and I haven't moved into current trends!  ;)  Either way,  I've been really trying.  I'm going to go on a hunt for the perfect templates today...that way when I have to do another template challenge I actually have a go to file!

I do have to say... I cheated this week.  I used a qp!  hehe  I saw these SUPER cute ones for only $2!!!   They're Holly Designs... I was picking up her Halloween kit and couldn't pass them up.   Now, with the Halloween ones I did last week, for the first time in YEARS I'm actually finished scrapping a Holiday/event only weeks after it occurred!

I also need to admit that I'm addicted to the font Justy and I can't stop using it.  I need to find another font pronto before EVERY layout in my album has it on there.  LOL
And....I finished my Girl vs Scrap layout early.  Um, it also has Justy for the journaling!  LOL See, I need HELP people!!!

I used Daredevil and a template from Lauren Reid's 1st Day pack.

Ok, I HAVE to get this project finished.... I've been working on it for 2 days now.  Just can't seem to catch that flow.  Would probably help if I'd quit scrapbook SHOPPING and get into ps.  ;)
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Busy Weekend!

Well, spent yesterday at Mr. Noda's speed meet.... it wasn't the best.  But, he has impoved so much since last year.  I can't really complain about anything.... he's shaved 2 seconds just since Nationals!   He spent most of the day either disappointed in himself or nervous about the next race.  After it was over he was able to just kick back and visit with some of his Colorado friends that he hasn't seen in months. 

Our next meet is in Waco, Texas over Thanksgiving.... not too sure if Pud and I are going to head down there with them this time though.   We'll see.   She's SO crabby the entire time because she's BOOOOOOORED and SLEEEEEPY and any other thing she can come up with.  She only perks up when she's handed some quarters to take off to the arcade with!  LOL

Ok, finally squeezed in some scrap time!  I want to have enough ready to print for Christmas... the countdown is ON folks!!!

Credits can be seen here.

This one was for the Girl vs Scrap Oct. should check them out if you haven't already!   Lauren puts such fun little twists on each challenge!

Alright, I have to get to work.... I have something fun happening Friday!  ;)

Alright, first of all, I had an AMAZING opportunity to work with the uber scrappulous... ( did I just make up a word?  hehe)  We whipped up a Little Daredevil kit that's perfect for your little men!

I am in the middle of a few collabs this morning so I'm going to just get right to the point today!  ;)
I have a new little kit up at Memory Scraps this's SPOOOOOOOOKY.  Ok, maybe not spooky but darkly cute.  LOL 

I scrapped with it already!

Since I already had it scrapped, I decided to make you a QP.

Have a great weekend!

I've created a monster.

Her name is Suzy....or Rat-baby.  ;)

She's not the prettiest of puppies. She was the runt, her hair hasn't grown in all the way, and she's definitely not soft and snuggy....but I SO love this little thing.  The big problem with her is that she doesn't like to be alone.  She doesn't want to eat alone, sit alone or even sleep alone.  I'm trying to catch up on a ton of stuff today and she's crying and clawing at my leg to pick her up.  I pick her up for a sec....give her some love and try to put her down and she GRUNTS, gives me a dirty look, and then goes right back to clawing and crying.  She's making me crazy.  I just put her outside for a bit so I can FOCUS. 

I've been sorta grumpy for a bit...I have a lot of things I have to accomplish and when I get in those moods I just want to crawl in a hole.  Which makes the work pile up even more.... yes, you'd think I would have worked that out before now.  BUT, at least I can snap out of it now.  The weather is beautiful and both the kiddos are healthy again.  THANKFULLY.   We're doing MUCH better this year... I'm impressed.  I don't know if it's the change in lifestyle or just a stronger immune system after being exposed for so many years now.  LOL  I'll take credit though.  ;) 

John wanted some pics of his truck this weekend so we went downtown and snagged some really cool shots... well, cool for US.  hehe  I grabbed a few of the kiddos too... we mostly just goofed off for a bit and watched some trains go by.  It was nice.... of course, boys will be boys.

John has lost about 40 lbs and his body has changed so much with his workout routine (2-3 hours a day).  I really wish I could find the motivation he has.  LOL  He needs to buy some new clothes though....I didn't know how baggy his were getting until I was editing. 

I snagged this sweet one the train in front of them.

John's other woman... a recently lowered Maybelle

And....because she's my puddin'.

Ok, I've killed enough time.... I have to let the princess back in and go snag my babies.  
 Hopefully I'll be back in a few days with some new products.  I'm in the middle of cuteness.  ;)

Happy MONDAY!

School stuff and photo fun!

Oh, and I didn't put my new stuff up.... again.  LOL

My husband has taken pity on me and hauled the twins off to a car club thing.  I've never officially been to one of those car meetings but I imagine it's sorta boring for Abs and Noah's climbing over everyone's vehicles.    BUT... I do know that it means SILENCE for me.  ;)

I made a new school kit...naturally.  I haven't had time to really scrap their first day but I do plan on getting around to it.  I managed to do one of Noders with his wrestling backpack. 

Here's First Day

Here's my layout...he's nuts.

Here's some CT eyecandy.

I also have some doodly frames up.

They're so messy and scratchy but still fancy ya know.  hehe

I have to get some scrapping finished... I want to try to do all the Challenges every month at Mscraps.  I believe I've managed 2 a month so far!  Pretty sad.  I spend more time editing my photos lately than I do scrapbooking them.  I'm seriously obsessed with actions.  I bought a bunch from M4Hens and I'm going to snag them from Florabella too.  I must run each pic through 4 or 5 before settling on one or two looks to print.  My husband thinks I'm nuts.    With each new photo I imagine how it's going to look with Little Rainbow slapped on it. LOL    
 I also think that when you aren't the best photographer these little things SAVE you.  Where would I be if I were still rocking the disposables and dropping them at Wal-Greens without editing.  SCARY.  I'm sure you have your own saves but this is one of my faves of Noder.
Before.. or SOOC (<-- hehe photog words)

He looks sorta hot and sweaty...and um, yes..we were on top of a railroad station and you could CLEARLY see the next building. LOL  Breadsticks anyone? ;)
Ok, and here's the "fixed" pic.

I realize that his hands are sawed off...but really, who notices that except a REAL photographer?  Exactly.  Love that pic.   AND can I ramble or WHAT?!

I'm not getting anything accomplished.  I have a HUGE idea that I have to get on.  It's going to take me a few days of doodling but hopefully it'll be worth it!!! ;)
Here's a little sale info... if you have anything in your wishlist at MScraps now is the time to snag em!!!

And if you spend $10 you get our collab for FREE!

Hope to see ya over there! :)
Good night ladies... enjoy your Saturday night.  GEAUX TIGERS!!! *ROAR*
