Can I just tell you...

That having a company like Basic Grey want one of your layouts for their gallery is an awesome feeling. I mean a freakin super-run around the room, do a few cartwheels, smile so big it hurts, dance down the halls - awesome feeling! I was inspired by Mel's supa starness to send a few layouts to some paper companies - and well there ya go. I got an email this morning from them - then shot right over to the gallery - which is here - and saw my Mel page. Wow! Now that is a great feeling. I hope this is just the start.

Tell me that Will Ferrell and Chad Smith (drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers) aren't like long lost twin brothers. I mean really! Look..


There are moments all the time that make me catch my breath and love my life. I'll be driving, and stop to turn, when I realize what a beautiful day it is. How bright and wonderful all the colors are. How happy my daughter's laughter is in the back seat. Sometimes I am sitting on the couch next to my hubby, when I look over and feel an overwhelming amount of love for him. How he provides for us, loves us, and keeps us safe (and me sane). Last night - really it was early this morning - I startled him in bed and he jumped and let this cute little terrified scream thing. I was laughing so hard I almost peed. Laying there laughing at him so hard the bed was shaking - him half awake and terrified but adorable - I realized that it was one of those moments. I will cherish that moment. I will hold it firm in my memory along with the millions of others. Apart they might just be one tiny bit, some seemingly insignificant piece. Together they are the whole of my happiness. Each one special.

I get to

scrap NY tonight. Heck yeah!! My awesome cousin - Robin - sent me pics from her weekend in NY. I can't wait to scrap them. I plan on pretending like I am the one in the pics enjoying a wonderful winter weekend in NY - full of excitment, fun, and snow. The pics are so fun, and they just make my longing to see NY even worse. I want to go so bad. For now this will do. Village here I come. Only 5 more hours to scrap time.

Men Women and Children

That is the name of a band I heart! Our friend Nick is in it, but I would love this band even if he wasn't. Last night I got to see them play for the second time. It was amazing. I mean how many times do you go to a show and find yourself dancing and singing along with the music. If you are me - not often. Due to the fact that my husband was in a band and I spent like at least 2 or 3 days of every week at one show or another for like 3 years. So now the fact that I even go means I already love the band, but the fact that I was out in the audience clapping my hands, singing along with the music, dancing, and just having a great time is amazing. I love their CD, but it pales in comparison to seeing them live. If you get a chance check them out. Go by their web site - Check them out on itunes - Go buy their CD - Or check them out on Myspace.
This is what the album looks like

If you see it I suggest you pick it up.

These are the Men of Men Women and Children

Happy Birthday to Me.

Today I turn 28. Strange because I still feel like I am 17. I still have hopes and dreams about what I am going to do when I "grow up". I still think of my parents and older family members as "Adults". I wonder if there is ever a time when I will feel all grown up. Don't get me wrong sometimes the weight of adulthood can hit me like a ton of bricks. Like when you go to the mailbox and open it to find it is crammed full of bills. Or when a decision has to be made about Joey - Chris and I have to make it, being that we are her adults. However most of the time I feel like I am still young, and somehow the world still has endless things to offer me. I guess in some ways I hope that part of me never goes away. That I never lose my sense of awe at this crazy, and strange world.

Layouts from Convention

Some of the ones I did.

Chris' B-Day

May 26th was my hubby's B-day. He is a skater and I thought it would be fun to go back to where we grew up and take some photos of a few of the curbs he loved to skate. They turned out really nice so I thought I'd share.

In front of his house

In front of Foodarama


Holy crap we had a good time. I mean a GOOD time. I also got tons done, 17 pages to be exact.
I will write more later.

This is the girl....

That has taught my daughter about being a little girl. My daughter seeks to be like her in every way. As far as my Joey girl is concerned you can't get any cuter, sweeter, funnier, or more awesome than Cammy. I have to say she is pretty freakin awesome.

My Head is going to Explode!!!!!!!!

Really! I can't stop thinking about convention. As of like 8:00 am Friday morning we will be on our way there. Wow! I can't wait to see all the new product and new techniques. I can't wait to scrap for like 2 days straight. I can't wait to hang with my girls. I feel like there is a wheel spinning inside while I think about convention, and if I think about it too much it will spin out of control.
Ok - I have to stop thinking about it now.
So, yesterday I happened to pop onto the CKU website to see if they had done any updates to the site for Houston. They had! Now they show the celebrities that are going to be there. The adorable Elsie F. is gonna be there. I so feel like it is well worth the money now. I mean $345 is by no means a ton of money, but I want to feel like what I am paying for is well worth it. Now I do. I mean think of all the scrap supplies you could by with $345. Now I am very very happy that Mel, Mimerz, and I are going.
Do you know what you are behind scrap wise? Or are you all caught up with your scrapbooking? I was wondering what pages I had to do and what I could work on at the convention, so I made a list. Big mistake! The freakin list was like 4 pages long on word pad. 4 pages people!!!!! I didn't even really include my heritage pages. That is a lot of scrappin to get busy on. A lot! But at the same time - that means I won't be searching for things to scrap about anytime soon.

Its Friday - Get your scrap on!!!

I hope I am Village bound tonight. I want to scrap - I need to scrap. No not in that scrap addict kinda way. I am working on my big sister's dating / wedding album. I have pages I need to get done, and some to finish. Keep your fingers crossed that I get some great stuff done.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
