...and I'm finally getting around to posting on the blog. Here are the layouts I did with the KnK kit. Boodles, the embellies from the Crate Paper kit go great with it! I used something from that kit on all 3 things I did. I'm sure you will find other kit stuff to go with it, but I'm just throwing that out there for you! That other card is one I did for Scrap-Tastic. Becky gave us the challenge to scraplift the winning layout for the 7Gypsies contest, so I decided to make a card. Yes, that particular SU stamp set got some use this month! Steve evidently doesn't like that set judging from this smartass comment..."You actually paid money for that stamp?" (I really really need to find me a rolling eyes smiley. I seem to do it often enough).
Congrats to Bre for making the Treasures to Scrap DT!! I knew it was just a matter of time for you! And Congrats to Heather for making Scrappin' Deals DT! I'm so excited for you girls.
Well, I mentioned that Steve, Brian, Jacob and the girls would be camping out in the backyard this past weekend. I really didn't think they'd all stay out there, but they did! So glad Steve didn't take me up on that $50 bet! We roasted hot dogs and smores. Later that evening they all went on an "adventure" (a walk around the neighborhood w/flashlights). I think they all had a pretty good time!
Sunday at work was hell. There really is no other way to describe that day. It sucked big time. I guess everything just had to be done on Sunday since Monday was a holiday. It was awful.
Me and the girls headed out to Mt. Carmel on Tuesday. When we hit Princeton, we ran into one doozy of a storm. It was raining so badly I couldn't even see to drive. I had to pull off into a parking lot to wait it out, and of course it scared the bejeezus out of Mara. Once we got to Mt. C, we went out to lunch with my mom and then went to pick up Kasara. We all hit the big town of Carmi so Kasara could get her PPD done for work and then checked out her new house. Very cute! I really do like it (I'm not just saying that to be nice!) The colors are all so bold and cool. I can't wait to see it after the one end has been extended 8 feet. It's going to have walk in closets in both back bedrooms and going to make the bathroom bigger. Very cute and perfect starter home.
McKenna stayed with Aunt Kasara and hung out with her and Uncle Donnie on Wednesday. It was so funny, Mara knew that McKenna was in Mt. C, but on Wednesday afternoon, I was fixing our lunch and was taking it outside to the deck and Mara stops and looks at me and says 'What are we going to do about McKenna? Should we wake her up or what?' LOL! She thought McKenna was still asleep! She even slept in McKenna's bed because Micah was too scared to sleep in her room by herself!
Mara had a T-ball game last night. These girls are so cute! Mara got one hit off the pitching machine and 2 off the tee. There was one girl on the other team who just kicked everyone's butt. She was like a one man (girl) team! We knew she was going to be tough...she walked up to the plate with cleats, a pink batting glove and a pink helmet! And she didn't disappoint! At one point Kasara asked me if they were taught to bend over and put their hand on their knee when they were out on the field. I looked around and all the girls were bent over and had their hand on their knee. It was so funny!
Ok, phrase of the summer so far: "It's hooooot in Tooooopeeeeekaaaa" as said by Bloo from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. I'm going to have to see what I can find video-wise. It's just too funny. McKenna has the whole dialogue memorized from that part of the show (no surprise there) and Micah says it every chance she can.
Ok, time to update my video....
