Been busy around here...

Just a quick update!! LOL  I went Black Friday Cyber shopping- what an adventure!!!! I NEED a better system. LOL  But I managed to order a lot- but exactly what? I am not sure. I did print the orders but I haven't taken the time to figure it out. I think I did them all.
On the scrapping front- I did a few pages on my DSP "Book of Me-Mories"!!! Yea!! I am so far behind on that & DSP Sunday scrappers, I thought I would try & do some catching up. I also started participating in DSP's "sketch" challenge. I have done 2 so far. I really want to get more involved with DSP!!  I also made 6 cards for the "Scrappers Give Back" charity. That was interesting as that was a first for me. And I am still trying to follow Susan around to Speed Scraps when I can. Hee heee... I am a Susan Young groupie. I also follow some of the challenges in Digi Scrap Drive-In, since I hope to be going to the Digi Scrap Retreat they are having in May.
I also have progress to report on the painting front... I HAVE started painting again--- whoopee!! I have 2 or 3 or more projects to finish up. I even went to my DSP chapter meeting this month! Now that's progress since I haven't been in months!
And I even made a pillowcase style dress for Bella!! We wont discuss how long it took me to get started. I didnt have a pattern so I was really intimidated to get started. So she wore her fall dress on Thanksgiving for a few hours. LOL
Most of our family has been sick with something for a couple of weeks. I have had sinus problems.
Ok- that's about it for my quick update.
Have a great day!!!

A really cool scrap challenge

Yep- I have found yet another scrap site w/ challenges I like. Jen Reed's blog. What really appealed to me about this is that it is so low key. There aren't a lot of rules to follow. LOL They provide a template & you play with it!
I used a kit that I have wanted to use for ages, finished it & realized that the new family pictures we just had made, didn't match. If you know me, you know I am matching obsessed. That's ok, now I have a page with a cool layout waiting for the perfect photo :)
This is version # 2. I LOVE it... except for the fireplace. Honestly- do you think it is noticeable??? I do!!! I am always trying to learn, so if you have some CC feel free to leave me some :D

Where I Have Been...

Hi. Been a while, I know. Since I posted last I have been to Pa. & met my longtime online &painting friend Mary, & also some other painting buddys. It was so wonderful!

The only bad thing is Mary got very sick toward the end of my visit. But she is better now. We had so much fun & silliness while I was there. And the cold weather that they have up north was so nice & beautiful, hmmm, seemed a lot like our weather down in the south.




Then I had a few days at home & Mike had a last  minute business trip to Orlando, so I grabbed the chance to go & visit my niece &nephew & their families. I didnt realize I wouldnt have a car- hee hee- so the visits were very short, but very sweet. I love those kids <3
