Sentimental Sundays - All About You

Hello my friends! I am sorry I don't have any eye candy for you today. Between migraines, storms, a police search for an armed fugitive in the area, loss of power, loss of A/C, child freaking out about the storms, A/C, and said fugitive and just life in general this crazy week I wasn't able to get my project done. Thankfully the migraine has passed, we have power and the 2nd repairman got the A/C going again. (The police are still looking for the fugitive but think he left the area.)

This week for the Sentimental Sunday's Challenge, Ann is asking us to use our favorite sentiment. Hmmm.... How about something to the effect "Life is too short to skip the chocolate"? It is all about the chocolate, isn't it? Or I know, how about "Calgon take me away!". It may not be a proper card sentiment, but is seems appropriate this week. Anyhow, I saw sneak peeks of some of the projects from the rest of the DT and you don't want to miss them. So go over to the Sentimental Sunday's blog, down load the free sentiment set from Ann, and check out the fabulous projects from the rest of the DT. While you are there, why don't you post a card or project using your favorite sentiment for your chance to win some of Ann's wonderful sentiment sets? All the details are on the challenge site.

I had some other fun stuff happen this week. I won the sketch challenge on the Annabelle Stamps blog with the card I made for my Dad for Father's Day. I won a free digi from Fresh Brewed Designs for posting their new challenge blog button. Check out the blog HERE and the store HERE. (I picked Desert Fiesta because it was so stinkin' adorable!) And best of all I received a RAK from my blogging buddy Karin which totally made my day on Friday. (And she included some chocolate. Does she know me or what?)
Lastly, I have been sadly remiss in posting this award from another blogging buddy, Leanne.

The rules for this award are to pass it on to 10 awesome bloggers and tell where you would like to be in 10 years. In 10 years, I would like to see my daughter in college. I would love it if both hubby and I were retired (early retirement) but if that doesn't work I would like to be able to reduce my work hours to part time so I could spend more time crafting and more time with friends. I might even get off my duff and be teaching business classes at one of the local colleges or technical schools. As for passing this on to 10 awesome bloggers, I have met so many wonderful, inspiring women since I entered the blogging world last October that I am having a hard time choosing. I would love to pass it on to each and every one of you. (Does that sound like a cop out? Sorry... My blogging life is my place to break the rules.) If you would like this award, please post on your blog and follow the rules. (Do as I say, not as I do.)

Wow - what a long post, especially since I did not have a project. I hope you all have a wonderful day today. I am looking forward to seeing your entry in the Sentimental Sundays challenge with your favorite sentiment or quote.

lol, Love your chocolate quote, Cheryl :) I hope you and your family are doing okay. Best of luck with everything!

"What a week I'm having!!!" I love that quote but can't remember the movie!!! Anyways, sounds like you had a "week" like that.

Glad your migrane passed, the A/C is back on and the fugitive has moved on (or even better - has been caught!!)

Congrats on all the GOOD things that happened this week though :)

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
