When the fam damily gets together we like to have fun. We play card games
We use a whiteboard and play Pictionary! This is the funnest! Always the girls against the boys! GIRLS RULE!!! BOYS DROOL!!!

There is always way too much food to feast on!

This card is a little different than I usually make. It's kinda funky don't you think? I used CTMH Cranberry and Sweet Leaf CS. D1261 - Simple Beauty (March Stamp of the Month), New England Ivy Ribbon Rounds, and Prisma Color Pencils. I embossed the stamped image with black embossing powder before coloring with the pencils. I used my cutting knife Z533 to trim around the image and used 3 D foam squares to attach to the card base.

Have I ever told you that I like Geese? Canadian Geese. I have a few of them in my house. Occasionally we have them in the field behind our house. Tanner likes to chase them and bark when they fly low over the house. This picture hangs over our 60+ inch Flat Screen HDTV.
This is one I painted a few years ago. Its with a fishing basket and fly rod.
Pioneer Woman has some on her Blog. You can read about it here.

I made this card using CTMH Serendipity Paper pack and Chocolate CS. I used CTMH Acrylix - For Every Occasion, and Z820 Window Charms. To make the cake, I chose three sizes of the square window charms, stuck them to the Serendipity paper then cut around the edges. I then stacked and glued them to the Chocolate CS and attached a ribbon to the top. The Birthday sentiment is embossed with glittery gold. I attached a strip of coordinating paper inside the flap then tore the top edge so that it should show. CTMH paper is not dyed through so when you tear, you have a white edge. I embellished with 3 gold brads.

Extras are black polkadot grosgrain, Antique copper photo hanger and black brads.

10 years ago? I was struggling to be a single Mother and Getting to know My Handyman
Things on my to-do list today? Clean house. (I got off work a little early today) Organize my craft table. Post a blog. (here it is) Read blogs. Think about what I want to cook for dinner. Enjoy the evening with Handyman.
What would I do if I were suddenly made a billionaire? Die of Shock! Arise from the dead and hire a financial planner. Retire. Go to St Martin for a month. Figure out how much to share with family. Go into hiding.
Three of my bad habits? 1. Anal – I want everything in order and in its place and done right. 2. I’m too nice and have a hard time saying no, so I help everyone with everything. Most of the time I don’t mind, but sometimes I just need to say No. 3. Too much time on the computer.
Five jobs I've had? 1. Kentucky Fried Chicken 2. Electrical Wholesale- A/R 3. Family-General Contractor business. 4. My current job – Warehouse AP– Corporate office of Winco Foods.
Five things people don't know about me? 1. I’m not very outgoing. My co-workers would probably strongly disagree but that’s because I know them well and am comfortable around them. 2. I am a computer geek. I know a lot more about them than I’ll admit. 3. I remember almost everything that interests me or that I know is important to remember. 4. I don’t retain information about Hollywood Stars, Movies etc… unless the story touches my heart. The gossip magazines don’t interest me. I’ve never been star struck. 5. I am soft hearted. I cry watching commercials, movies, songs on the radio and even when I laugh.
NOW...if you read this, and you have a blog...I TAG YOU!

Here is a digital scrap page I created using Photoshop. Now that I know what I'm doing it doesn't take much time at all. The hardest part is picking out the paper and pictures. I haven't researched it yet, but I hear you can upload to Kinko's and they'll print on 12x12 paper! This is Scissorbella's homecoming Fall 2004.
Referring to yesterday's blog and my fishin' page; read my mom's story here.
