Project 365 days 18 and 19

Day 18
My mom called and wanted to go threw some of the older photos we have, and the ones that were my grandmothers. Amanda joined me, and had fun learning lots of family things she did not know.
Day 19
Yep that is a chicken nugget she is dipping into her Wendy's Frosty. She has done this forever and does not like to eat nuggets from anyplace else, because she has nothing to dip them into.

A little girl at 10...

I was so happy to see the new Sketch This #96 was up. I love Janelle's sketches. Had a blast using up some of my last Collage Press scraps.


Did this one for this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch, I loved this Origins line by Basic Grey, the colors are terrific. The Prima velvet flower brads are also fabulous, I can not wait to get some more in my stash.

Been scrapping....

I did this one after going threw old photos with my mom and Amanda the other day. My 4th grade class pic. I used the Creative Scrappers sketch for their 24 hour contest, but I did not get it uploaded in time.

Blogger is giving me a headache this morning so everything is going to be in separate posts I guess.

More to come in a minute, just need to get them uploaded. Along with my last few days of project 365.

The weekend is almost over ....

and I did not get anything accomplished, not that I normally do when I am working. tomorrow is another day, and since my mojo is working I am hoping to lasso a little bit of free time to finish the layouts I have in my head.

Project 365 2010
Day 14
Kimmy enjoying a meatloaf and mashed potatoes MRE that she got from Grumpa Chuck. She was suprised at good it was, and it made her stop and think about the soldiers out there eating just this every day. She also thought the fact the "toffee rolls" were Tootsie rolls was hilarious.

Day 15
Amanda and Hannah donned their funky 3-d glasses to catch the late showing of Avatar...according to them the best movie ever made.

Day 16
While I was getting ready for work this morning I was very surprised by the amount of "smell good" stuff that the girls had in their bathroom, especially since almost all perfumes give me an instant migraine headache.

Day 17
The Sunday paper, something I usually only get every other Sunday when I am at work. If I have the day off, we usually get to late of a start to get one.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed some football playoff week should be atleast one good game.

A layout and 365 days 12 and 13

This layout is for a sketch blog that I found recently and have completely fallen in love with...Sketchy Thursdays. I loved using bubble wrap and Stickles, along with this awesome line from Glitz Designs, called Plum Crazy. Purple is not a color I would normally scrap with, but I love this line.

Day 12
Dan and I went to the park today for a picnic lunch, at the park where we got married.

Day 11
Kimmy finished up her drawing of a Littlest pet shop...she did a fabulous job

Project 2010 days 9,10,11

Day 11
Today is back to school day , so I grabbed a shot of Amanda getting ready for school.

Day 10
Kimberly went with mom and dad up to Dunellon to see one of the last Sunday Samplers...the band playing was Patchwork. Kimmy walked the tracks and picked up some old railroad ties.

Day 9
Florida had a blast of arctic air, we had some sleet and snow flurries in the morning...Kimmy caught this piece of ice in a box after it rolled off our roof. The high today was 38!

I did manage to finish 4 layouts and a card yesterday, but did not get anything uploaded. Maybe by Wednesday. It is a lovely 15 degrees out right now and I need to head off to work. Atleast Dan went and warmed up my van for me.

Project 2010 days 7 and 8

Day 7
Because of the fact that we are experiencing one of our longer cold streaks Dan decided we needed some good old fashioned homeade chicken noodle soup.

Day 8
Dan was just introduced to bejeweled on Facebook, and he is quickly becoming addicted. I may even have to open him his own Facebook account.....who would have ever dreamed it.

I cannot we actually have a slight chance of flurries...yes snow flurries in Florida. I hope it stays nice and cool.. this weather is so refreshing...and there is not much else do except scrap, which is where I will be spending my day tomorrow.

Project 2010 days 5 and 6

Day 5
Amanda has decided not to have ramen noodles for breakfast everyday.....she has changed to rice. This also cover the word nourish off this month's photo hunt list.

Day 6
Was not the best of days in our household, everyone seemed to be moody and on edge. We did make it to the mall to exchange Kimmy's shoes. I wish the other ones had fit. Both girls ended up with some wild new shoes. Kimmy got some paint splatter RocketDogs and Amanda got these funky velcro palid things.
I had planned on getting some scrapping done for the Sketchy Thursday sketch and the newest Mission Creaet, but that just did not happen.Tthe house including the girls room is clean and I mean deep clean. so next week, move over everything scrappy table here I come!

I did have a reveal over at ACOT this week. I had a great time working with the Sweet Love line by Best Creation. You can check it out the full reveal here.

Project 4

We spent most of the day cleaning the garage......yeah! We can actually see the floor, though not park the car in it, not that we ever planned to in the first place. I can now get to the washer and dryer without stepping on anything! Should have taken some before and after pictures, but I would have been to embarrassed to share them with anyone.
As the day was drawing to and end I realized i still had not taken my photo yet, so I grabbed my camera and was off to get some pics. I got this one of my dd texting away..her favorite past time lately.

I am very aware of the fact that I may not get to blog them every day....but will be posting them at least weekly. That way I know I have someplace to fall back, should I get bogged down in my daily I am trying to live it, simplify it, and yet still enjoy it.

Along the way you will see many layouts, cards and altered projects. I have found a few new challenge and sketch blogs that I adore and am following closely. I hope you enjoy this coming year as I hope to, and I hope it brings good things to everyone.

My first photos shave been taken and will posted tomorrow....hope to see you then.
