I've been tagged...

Not only once, but twice! LOL The first time
was from Loucee, she left a comment saying
I was tagged, I had no idea what she was talking I just shrugged it off thinking she went
nuts, besides, I hate tag! We used to play it all
the time when we were kids, and I was always
IT...everyone would run and hide and there I
was looking for days, so it seemed at the
for everyone, I would get so mad and scream
I hate this stupid game and why am I always IT!!!
I QUIT!!!!! lol Little by little my friends would come
out of hiding and they would laugh like a bunch
of hyenas as I tried to catch them...oh man, the
memories are are flooding back and I don't like it!
LOL Maybe I should try this game now with my
kids...they could go hide and I am pretend I can't
find them....hahahaha I would let them stay in hiding
for a few years ...hahahaha Now that would be FUN!
Okay back to reality....damn!
As I was reading my comments, Melanie says you've been
tagged, I am like what the heck is going on!!!! So off to her
blog I go...hey I can handle this kinda tag! LOL But what
picture do I have in the 6th folder, 6th one in...yikessssss
So off I go to check, curiosity got the best of me and
I just had to see.....not to bad....whewwwwwwwwww, lol
So here it is...

This happens to be my nephew, Brandon last Easter, yeah I still have
last Easter layouts to We were playing this game
with eggs on a spoon. We gave all the kids hard boiled eggs
except for Brandon and he didn't know it, so it keeps throwing
this egg up in the air catching it, we keep on cheering him on,
each time he is getting higher and higher....LOL Well the last time
it went up in the air and he reaches to catch it, BAM smashes right
in his face....yeah we laughed like crazy....and I had the camera ready
to go when it smashed. I do have a few of him throwing it up catching
it but this was the 6th one when he went to the ground....I guess
I better scrap this page before this Easter! LOL

Here's how it works:
Go to your photo folder in your computer
Go to the 6th folder of photos
Go to the sixth picture
Put the picture on your blog and a description of it
Invite six friends to join the challenge
Link them in your blog.

What lucky 6 am I gonna pick???? LOL


Ok, now it's your turn to play, can't wait to see what
photos you have!!

*Note to grammy201*
Thanks for that great advice about the dots!
I am making a note....NOT to touch ANYTHING! LOL
Gonna duct tape my hands until I am done with
everything I already touched! LOL

Now I better get back to playing, Kim's March
challenge is almost here and I got a sneak peek
at the swatch....YIPPIEEEEEEEE! LOL But I have
no idea what I am going to do with it yet, I'm
working on things for St Paddy's day....
So have a great day peeps!!!

Chow for Now!!!

I'm still here...

To anyone who really cares, yeah I'm still around.
I had my party on Sunday and it went really well.
It was my turn to host the scrap party, so that meant
a week of cleaning! Did I ever tell you how much
I HATE cleaning!!! Hey KimB I sooo wanted to borrow
that nanny you have! The dust bunnies I have seen
are utterly amazing, but I need that motivation of
having a party to get this house in order. LOL Now
my spring cleaning is almost done. I only have 2 more
rooms to rip apart, my bedroom and the rec room, which
will take me till summer to get done!

I've been trying to play on the computer, I got so many
things going at one time, it's really confusing me... so
I saved everything I started onto one page and shut
PS off for the next few days.

Today I scanned more of my wedding photos, I wanted to
make a book in order, but it doesn't seem to be working
that way... lol I seem to be skipping all over the place
these days... I think I have ADD. lol But I did
accomplish some layouts, and I even cheated with a few
QP's... hey, I gotta use them! LOL They are just too
pretty to keep hidden in a folder!
I guess I'll show them

(credits are in my galleries)

Well, that's all I got for today, nope, no freebies, maybe
this later this week, if I get my butt in gear and get
something completed, then there is those stupid
previews to make....ughhhhh....well, hopefully I have
something for ya'll soon.
I got work tomorrow, so I better go take that hour shower! LOL
Just wanted to let ya know I still alive and kickin'!
Take care and stay safe!

Spirit of Summer-Charity Collab

Spirit of Summer is a charity collab benefiting the Victorian
bushfire Appeal. Not only has this effected Australians,
but human beings the world over.
29 Australian and international designers have banded
together to help support many Australians,
animals and communities decimated by one
Australia's worse national disasters.

What happened?

On Saturday, Feb 7, the temperature in Melbourne was 33'c by 9am.
By noon it was 40'c and by 2.50 pm soared to 47.9'c (a state record).
Thousands of people were also about to start running from the inferno
that would become one of Australia's worst peacetime disasters.
Trees ignited in the blink of an eye.
By the time people heard the roar,
it was too late to flee ahead of the flames.
Unfortunately no one or thing
could have stopped this inferno that wiped out
communities, bushland, and lives within minutes.
Many towns now cease to exist!
After watching interviews with survivors,
many say that they cant put
into words what they went through,
saw or felt on that day.
Here are just a few pictures
(courtesy of google,The age,sbs &abc Aust.)
of this horrible disaster

Why is this charity kit different?

No money will change hands at Snap N Tag (our host website).
We are asking for your support by donating DIRECTLY
to one of the following charities:

Donations can be made here:

What do I get for my donation and where:

You will be helping the people of Victoria, Australia most
importantly, but you will also receive this amazing
MEGA kit (see below).
There are 167 papers,
326 elements,
2 Alphas
and a glitter styles pack as well.

How amazingly fabulous is that and you can receive all of this for as
little as a $5.00 donation.
(**Vouchers will be emailed upon receipt of proof of Donation**)
But that's not all!
For showing us how much you all really care, you not only get the
MEGA kit but receive a Quick Page Album if you donate over $10.00...
WOW how awesome is that!


To receive your Charity collab once you have made your donation
-go here at Snap N Tag (** Don't forget your receipt of donation**)
which will tell you WHO AND WHERE to send the copy of your receipt too.
You will then be sent a VOUCHER to collect this HUMONGOUS KIT!

Donated! Wear your blinkie proudly: (made by Michelle Filo)


Here a 2 layouts I did with the Spirit of Summer Kit.

These are the girls I work with and one day last year,
we decided to have lunch at a park, after eating I convinced
Linda, my boss to play on the slide, it was just too funny, glad I had
my camera with me. Leslie, of course is always on the phone.

There is so much wonderful goodies in here, the hard part
was picking which items I wanted to play with first.
So come on, donate $5.00 or $10.00
these peeps need help!

If you can, please say a prayer, just a few thoughts towards
all those peeps who lost everything! And for all the animals
who have also lost their homes too.
Have a wonderful weekend, I am hosting a party this
weekend, so no computer time for me!
Take Care and be safe!

Valentine Surprise!

Hello all! Is everyone bolted down? I got a swimming
pool in my pond at the moment, and 3 garbage cans on
my front lawn that I have no idea who they belong to.
Anyone want to claim them?? LOL Yeah, it's a bit
windy out there today, not a good hair day either!
There isn't enough hair spray out there that will
keep your hair in place with 80 mile an hour
winds from blowing around. I think I will stay put
today and just listen to all the items blowing around.

So how many people have plans for this Valentine's Day?
My plans are to go out to dinner, double date with my
sister, should be loads of fun, we haven't done that in
awhile. One time we went out and it was her DH birthday,
as they came out singing with his B-day cake, we told
him he had to stand up and he listened...LMAO...
we should of told him he had to stand on the table....LOL
That would of been funnier. But nobody stands up, they are
always too embarrassed, NOT Brian..... which made it even
funnier, I bet we can't get him to do that again! Although,
we tried! LOL I am sure something funny will happen, it
always does when I am with my sister. I can't believe
our hubby's agreed to this, since they are always hiding
there faces when we get together in public...LOL

So in honor of this mushy, gushy day...I made a small
kit up, and after today I don't want to see or hear anymore
of this lovey, dovey's really making me sick!!! HAHAHA
I figured out why St. Patrick's Day is a very important
holiday for me, and NOPE I am not Irish.... LOL
All the romantic crap makes me wanna hide till
March 17....LOL so I say BRING ON THE LEPRECHAUNS!!!
And here is a preview of my Valentine Special.... why is it special,
I have no idea!!!! I couldn't think of a name for it..... LOL
If you haven't gotta enough hearts and pinks and purples than
you can click on the preview to download it.

Remember your manners! lol
I did use some of Kim's stuff from her Feb. Grab Bag, which
is still one sale at the moment, so if you didn't get that yet,
better hurry, the sale ends Monday. Click on her preview to
get to her store.

And last but not least.... I got an award... I love getting these!!!

Waiting for Spring

Good Morning Peeps! By the time you get
to read this it will be It
takes me a good hour or so from start to
finish when I blog, even if I keep it short
and Keeping up on a blog
is lots of work, I don't know how some
of you peeps do it everyday!! More
power to ya, I'm lucky if I blog twice a
week..LOL anyhowwwwwwww....

Yesterday was soooo nice and warm,
I just had to go out and take in some
of that warmth. They said it wasn't going
to last long, and of course they were right,
by night time, right back to freezing again,
but what little time I got, was just what I
needed... I actually do fell a lot better,
someone up above knew just what I and
many others like me who are going through
the winter blues needed!
After dinner I decided a walk would do
me good, so off I went, only to discover
this lovely sunset in the sky, of couse I
didn't have my camera, so I turn right
around to get it, I didn't want to miss
this one, the sky just looked sooo neat.
Wanna see??? LOL Sure ya do....hahaha

(Pretty Cool huh???)

And a HUGE THANKS to everyone who tried
to cheer me up, that worked too! Yes, things
could be a LOT worse!!
But sometimes just venting and getting it out
of my systems works for me, I used to keep
everything bottle inside, and as I grow older
and wiser I learned that it just makes matters
worse, and so, if I have to vent a little, so be it!
LOL Okay, enough about me....

Guess what????? Kim has her new February Grab
Bag up in the store!! It's totally AWESOME!!! I can't
get over how many goodies are in this bag, and the
stuff it out of this world!!! And of course it's only $8.00!!!
Unbelievable!!!! So to kick this off, I made one of those
border and I also have a paper to
go along with it. Yeppers I am waiting for Spring, it
can't come soon enough, and as you will see this goodie
has SPRING written all over it... I hope you like it, it does
have a few a Kim's CU items in have to figure out
what those are.....LOL If you want to grab this click on
the preview.

Don't forget to say Thanks, it makes me really Happy!!!
Then head over to Kim's store to grab this GRAB BAG!!!

You won't be sorry!!!!

At the end of the week I'll have more surprises, but ya
gotta wait till
Well, off to go food shopping, YIPPIEEEEEEEEE!
Have a great day and as always stay safe!

Sweet Thoughts-add on

Hello peeps! Has this been the longest week
or what! There is just something about February
that makes time just drag! I've been in such
a rotten mood and I can't shake it for nothing!
I can't even stand being with myself these past
few days... man, this better pass soon or I just
might have to kill someone....LOL I really
should be happy.. Heather DID get that job,
full time with benefits... AMEN.. but she doesn't
start for 2 weeks, ohhh, I can't wait to see her
butt get up at 5 in the morning....well, I won't
actually see that, cause I will be in lala land
myself. Now she can start paying back the millions
she has taken from us!!! Yeah right, I'll just
be happy when she starts making her car payments
and pays her car insurance again!

Well, we got our taxes done last night....UGHHHH!
So much for me having a job, it took us into a higher
tax bracket and if it wasn't for having Amber as
a deductible..we would owe this year! So, now I
have to figure out what I am going to do for next
year, because it was put to us, ever so gently,
that this is the last year we can claim Amber!!
Just who is gonna claim her next year?
hmmmm it can't be me!!!! LOL Let the government take
her for a few months, I am sure they will change
there minds after a few months and gladly let
me claim her on my income taxes until she moves
out! LOL There's those darn dreams again!!!
Told ya I wasn't in a good mood! LOL

Anywayyyy, enough about the crap that makes
this world go round.... onto something lighter...

Maybe I will feel better if I can give something
away....(besides my dear children) LOL
I did promise I had something else to go with
the kit I made last week, and I am not sure if
anyone wants it or not, but I did have fun playing
with it...I haven't a clue what you call it, some say
border, but I don't know....maybe it's just a plopper!
LOL it is, all you have to do is
add a paper, photos and a title and walaaaaaa....
So if you want to grab it, just click on the preview!

Well peeps, time for me to end this, before I start
rambling on again... I probably bored ya enough
for one day! Have a great weekend and stay safe!

Fe'brrrrrrr'uary Already!

Hi peeps!! Yeah, I know I have been slacking with
this blog, actually took the whole week off!
I've been busy doing a challenge at
first time hosting a challenge, and it turned
out rather well. Thanks to all the great girls
for playing along!! I also have been trying
to get my daughter a full time job, she finally
has an interview tomorrow, so with both fingers
crossed, I am hoping and praying this goes well.

Today is SUPERBOWL Sunday....Nope, my team
didn't even make the play offs this year...heck I think
they only won 2 games the whole season...but when
I stick with a team, I stick with them, through thick
and thin.... although these past few years have been really
thin, but they got to get better one of these years....
You might be curious as to what crappy team I love....
well, it's the Kansas City Chiefs.... NO booing please! LOL
I have tons of money invested in them, and I am not
changing teams any time As for the Super Bowl,
of course I must root for Pittsburgh....Actually, I really
don't care who wins... I just like watching the commercials...
LOL Nobody is home here today, all at Parties... I am just
not into the party mood these days, so I'll just stay home
and entertain the dogs...

I did get Kim's February Challenge Done, I just have to make
previews and zip it up, so that is what I will be doing tonight.
So make sure you come back tomorrow sometime!

I was just at Kristine's Blog and she has this thing about
tarot cards, and of course I had to see what this is all about...
LOL Answer a few questions and WALA... this is what mine says:

You are The Star

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised

The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

I am the star..... Go figure!!! LOL Hey, at least I didn't get
the death card...whewwwwww....LOL

Before I wrap this up I want to show you a layout I did using OOB....
this time I used elephants and also used Beth's Autumn Splendor Kit for this....

I got all my layouts printed out and into books this weekend, someone who has
been working so hard on her photos made me get a bit organized.... Thanks ET!!!
I hope you are getting the stacks sorted! I certainly don't envy you at the moment!
Well, that's it for today, the game is gonna start in 20 minutes

and I got to feed the dogs! Have a great night everyone and stay safe!!!

And until tomorrow........

GO PITTSBURGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
