Just Another Manic Monday...

...wish it were Sunday, 'cause that's my fun day... OH, my bad, I'm supposed to be writing a blog post here, not singing! Even though it is yucky and rainy outside, in addition to being Monday, I do have a couple EXCITING things to share!!

First of all...today is the day a new challenge is up at "These Are A Few of My Favorite Things". The challenge this time is to scrap your favorite feature. Is it your hair, your face, your daughter's smile? Can be you or someone else! This was such a fun challenge to do!! It was also my very first DT layout for "Fave Things"!! Hope I made "Boss Lady" proud! Please come over to the blog and join us in the challenge: http://www.whatisyourfavething.blogspot.com/.
Here is my layout:


My favorite feature has always been my eyes. It's funny, when I was younger, I used to get tired of hearing people compliment me on them...now I can't hear it enough.
Used Echo Park's "Little Girl" line on this layout! Love the bright colors!!!!! Some Prima, Zva Creative and Petaloo (from ma girl, Jill). All of the title letters are American Craft Thickers.

Did this layout last night. I've been doing a lot of playing around with my new camera. Nicholas has been such a good sport at letting me snap pics of him.


GAH! I thought we were past this "sideways" stuff! I don't get it!!!! Anyway...Used the new MME "Stella and Rose" line on this one. Lots of distress ink, Prima and Petaloo flowers and some Zva bling! Again, all the letters are American Crafts Thickers. The title "My Life Would Suck Without You" is a Kelly Clarkson song.

Thought I would share a few more pics I took with the camera. I'm loving it now that I am not so afraid of it.






We had a fun day yesterday! Went out for lunch and then to Fort Hunter and Italian Lake for some play and picture taking! Can't wait until our next nice day to get out again!

I should be getting my first "Darling Divas" kit in the mail any day now! Can't wait to start scrapping with it!!!

Well, it's time to make the doughnuts...not really, but I have stuff to do today. Wish I could just stay home...hate the rain! Oh well, I guess I won't melt.

Until next time...
