Silly Pictures

I found this cute website on another blog and decided to try it with some of my photos:

Doesn't Bridgette look so cute in the picture with the cats? And I'm pretty sure my little puppy Haru totally belongs on the one hundred dollar bill! There are so many other backgrounds that you can plug your photos into. I had a lot of fun experimenting!

ScrapPink Pics

ScrapPink was a HUGE success! I had a great time and I think everybody else did too. I forgot my camera (bad scrapper!) but one of my attendees graciously gave me her photos. Here's a few pics from the day:

There's Dana and Tiffany working hard:
I am looking up to avoid double-chin syndrome. Perhaps it was too much?:

My photographer for the day and her daughter:

Playing with my new Cricut Expression:

I have to say I was more than pleased with the way things turned out! with the exception of the cooling system it went off without a hitch. Thanks everybody who attended and I can't wait to see you all in November.

Happy Anniversary!

Well, I can't believe it but eight years ago yesterday I married the best guy in the whole world. He made me laugh the first time I met him and he keeps cracking me up to this day.

I don't have any pics scanned into the computer from that day so you'll have to make due with this one from the beach this year. (You really don't want to see my medusa hair anyway!) I think it's fitting because B took it!
Scott was sick and had to work all day so we didn't do much except go out to dinner. But we had fun and it was nice to spend some alone time together.
I love you sweetie and I can't wait for eight more!

In case you've been wondering what is consuming my time lately, I'm gonna tell you: ScrapPink!

I had a lot of fun planning it this year but now that it is getting down to the last week, I am sort of stressing. for those of you that don't know, ScrapPink is an annual crop/ event sponsored by Scrapbooks, Etc magazine. Part of the proceeds are donated to the Susan g Komen Foundation and Scrap stores all over the country participate. This year has totally exceeded my expectations! I have filled the goodie bags to the brim with donated products, I have lots of really cool raffle prizes donated by various manufacturers AND I have just about doubled the attendance from last year! Yippeeee! I think we will have a great amount of money to donate to this very worthy cause. And that makes me so happy as this cause is very close to my heart. My grandmother has been fighting cancer for about 5 years. It started in her breasts and then moved to her lungs and kidneys. She is a very strong lady and continues to amaze me with her ability to fight! So, if any of you reading are going to be around the Exeter/ Reading area this weekend, we would love to have you attend! It is going to be a really fun time and i'd like to get as big of a donation as we can to send in! And a special thanks to those already signed up. You guys are the best!
Well, back to planning!

Some *new* layouts

I have been a very busy bee in the scrapping department lately. One of my favorite manufacturers, Pink Paislee, just came out with some new stuff and I have been using it like crazy.

Back to School

Better late than never! Here are a few pics of B on her first day of third grade!
She never wants to give me a good smile anymore:

B and daddy (aka the mailman) before he left for work:

Getting on the bus:

So far B really seems to like third grade. Her teacher seems really nice and B likes her. Scott and I are going in tomorrow to meet with the "gifted" teacher, the guidance counselor and the principal to get B into the gifted program. She was tested over the summer and recommended for the program. She was also recommended for an ADD test so we are going to talk about that too.

Soccer started a few weeks ago so we have been pretty crazy with that and the whole back to school thing. Her first game is Saturday and she is super excited! I am really impressed with the way she is playing this year. She seems to really be paying attention and trying hard to improve. Of course, she still gets knocked around constantly since she is the littlest girl on the team but she always gets right back up.
