Friday Night Fun

Good morning everyone..hope your day has started out far no rain last night or this morning..maybe the monsoons are over LOL...

Tonight's the big night for Kendra, she's graduating...she is so excited.  How well I remember my own graduation day. Our class was the largest to ever graduate from my school and also the first to be integrated...guess that tells you how old I am...!!! Ophelia was her name and she was such a sweet girl...I can only imagine how scared she must have been.  The 60's were sure turbulent times and I look back now and think did I really live those days and times..such a long time ago. It seems that every generation has its own turbulent times doesn't it.

Tonight I get to keep my sweet baby girl...can't my running shoes ready lol..Sunday Gage is coming to spend a few weeks with me, really looking forward to that also but its been a long time since I was around an 8 year old boy for days at a time...I may go to the pet store and get him a lizard or something like that, it always kept Josh and Chase occupied..

Today I have something really special to show you.

The first Collab kit by KimB and Chaos Lounge. Jen had a contest and the winner got to pick a theme and a color scheme..the lady that won wanted a wine this is her kit..and its beautiful








Isn't that amazing..just gorgeous and it's on sale now at 35% off. Angel Tears is the name of a wine very popular in South Africa..there is a beautiful story behind the name that you can read  on line

Here is one of the layouts I made with it

Water Logged Wednesday

Good Morning everyone..

I am tired of rain..its rained nearly everyday for the past two weeks..I love rainy days but in moderation LOL.

Do any of  you like westerns?  When I was little we went to the drive in movie a lot. My dad loved war movies and westerns so that's about all we ever saw. I can remember mother popping pop corn and putting it in a paper sack and ice water in a glass jar. I would get up in the back window and watch the I still love westerns and war movies..

I spent the whole day Tuesday on the couch watching a John Wayne marathon on the western that being lazy or what..later in the day I got sick at my stomach glad I had my garbage can close by..I didn't feel good the rest of the day or night.  I'm feeling some better today..the nashua comes and goes.

I have some goodies to show you today..

Look at this beauty pure pixels made using my new Music Word Art

Happy Memorial Day

Morning everyone..hope you had a great weekend..mine was good, I got to spend time with Kaylen..(Smiling real big) and that always make me happy!

I would like to dedicate my blog today to all the men and women of our armed forces who died in combat..and to all that are still serving at home and on foreign soil, and to all our military families.


Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 25 in 2009). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.

You need to take a break from all your festivities and go shopping today...Memorial Day Sales are on  and DSO is having one too..

Stunned Thursday

Good Morning Everyone

From the title I guess you can tell I'm still stunned today from last nights American Idol winner...I was saying Adam and then wham the winner is Chris...I was so shocked I immediately picked up the phone to call my sister and she was on the line..her and my mom voted for Chris...I didn't much care which won..I wanted Danny to win..he was my favorite of them all..although I'm sure he will get a contract too. I really enjoyed the show last night, Queen was on and Kiss, Rod Stewart, Lionel Richey, a lot of my favorites.

I didn't make it yesterday, I was babysitting Kaylen and boy what a day!! That little girl is on the ball..she's EVERYWHERE before you can say scoot...I spent a lot of time holding her and rocking her and she seemed to like it...I think she may miss her nana a little bit.. late in the afternoon I finally got her to sleep, but only a short nap and then it was more of the the time Josh picked her up at 6:30 my tail was dragging the ground LOL..but I loved every minute of it...she says goggie for doggie and she called Gemma all day..they love each other.

Now on to the goodies..I have a new kit out today called 

Just Music...


Music affects each of us in a different way..Just Music has 20 individual phrases each one telling what "music is"..I think these could be used on just about any type of page..they are slightly decorated, can be re-colored and re-sized...each is done in 300ppi for better print quality. Give your page that extra zing is needs with Just Music. On sale now for 25% off.

My friend Jenni at Chaos Lounge also has a new kit out
