I was doing sooo goooood this week...

Being creative, getting things done.
And then I just didn't feel good.
It was just enough to be irritating and annoying
but not enough to lay me low.
Which I'd just as soon have the latter and get it'r done
and over with already.
Today will be much better
because I'm going to Plan B!
As soon as I figure it out.

Sweet Annie girl...

Love this sequence of photos taken by my favorite SIL.
Bo Bunny comes to the rescue because I wanted her striped outfit
to shine. I love purple.
She was just getting mobile and rolled and scooted
to whatever desitination she had in mind.
I also broke out the sewing machine and tonic tool 
to give it some dimension.
And because a title eluded me. (Shocking I know, lol)
I love to use the big @ sign for her initial.

Got my kit from SwirlyDoos

and have to admit it totally intimidated me.
Why? I don't know.
Maybe because I saw all the samples in the gallery and 
on the blog.
And they were gorgeous.
And totally inspiring.
I just happened on a beautiful photo of my stunning grandbaby
that just got the ole mojo flowing.
Glitz papers, prima, petaloo, MM pattern paper,
Jillybean soup alpha, ek success, qk.

Creative Imaginations.

Got a couple of challenges going on....

This first one is a B&W challenge with a burst of color.
Of course I did it backwards. 
Now that stupid spellbinder flower gave me fits
and a punctured finger.
It's an intricate die, and it took a few times running it through
to get it out of the die. First I used my tweezer bees, hence the stabbed finger.
I called my LSS in frustration and they were totally helpful.
Use a small crochet needle to get it out.
Which I did, however, you have to be careful with that as well.
Sigh. NOT happy with spellbinders.
Recollections cardstock and basic grey.
 The second challenge is Maddawg's Madcap.
Break out your foam stamps, paint and rubons.
I chose rubon alphas. bwahahahaa.
K & Company papers - love them.

Sand eeuuu!!! LOL!!

Amelia not liking the taste of sand.
It appears NH had a sunny day. And not to be wasted,
all parties headed to the beach.
It's not like a Florida beach.
The water is cold, and yes I'm a wimp about that.
And the sand looks like mud.
Pretty in a different rugged way.
So back to the LSS to find the "right" papers. 
and Wa-la. K&Company.
I finally remembered I could jazz up tags.
*insert eyeroll*
AND this is loosely based on a sketch from October afternoon.

And that's why they call them "the Blues"

We raced down to Port Charlotte Airport to see the Blue Angels
practice. We were a bit late.
We couldn't get close to the airport at all.
So we parked in the Baptist church parking lot 
with the rest of the watchers.
 And we weren't let down.
 I forgot to put the lens on manual until it was half over.
 These guys are FAST and the lens can't keep up.
As if my fingers could - but I'm happy.
 I love precision flying.
 I love the Blue Angels.
 Did you know they get paid their regular salary for performing?
Even though they're rock stars of aviation.
 Tom was like I'd fly like that for nothing. LOL!!
As much as I love them I'm good with
admiring them from the ground
because If I rode in the cockpit it wouldn't be pretty.

We are back in our nest....

AND doing great.
I'm hoping some mojo will come my way.
I'm going to fondle my scrapbooking STUFF
and hope to get lucky.

I'd appreciate your prayers

for my darling DH. I need to be by his side for the next few days. He's had chest pains and an anomoly in his EKG's. He'll be undergoing a heart cath tomorrow and I'll be focused on him and his recovery. Please keep him in your prayers. Thank you.

Loving the Little Yellow Bicycle

Nothing inspires you like grandbabies.
And new papers.
And a visit to my LSS Treasured Memories
to purchase said papers.
And I have more where they came from bwahahaha!
 Sadly, whatever I had is returning and the mojo
just ain't happening which totally sucks.
Because I have stalked FB and Blogs and have downloaded
more grandbaby goodness that'll rock the paper.
Hopefully, the drugs'll kick in
NOW would be good.

Irish Blessing for you...

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sunshine warm upon your face, 
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Scrap your stash over at

I've done this photo before and I really just love it.
I was going to use the original until the design changed.
On the back of these old timey photos are like post cards.
Someone, and I'm guessing maybe grandmom or Aunt Ruthie wrote their names in,
And then Ruth is over where the addressee is. I'm thinking each kid
has this photo and their name is on it. I happen to have Aunt Ruthie's. 
Probably passed on by Aunt Sue, but I'm not sure because Gram had pictures too.
My Grandpop is the fellow all the way over to the left by his mom.
They are a wild and motley crew. 
A beautiful family.
I find it interesting that grandmom's 2 bachelor brothers are included.
And Uncle Augie and Oxyl were always close to each of their neices and nephews.
I was blessed to know them as well as my Great Grandmother.
So in order to see the awesome handwriting in the design change I added a hinge
which involved brads and punching holes.
And because I didn't want to ruin the integrity of the original
I printed another copy and used that.
Foo-fa-la makes me swoon and I'm glad I stocked up on it
many years ago. Stash doesn't get any better than that.
I still have some left over.
I know you're surprised.

Maddawgs Double Dawg Dare

Over at ScrapNChat our new site.
We are laying down the challenges and here's mine.
And that is a photo of me. OMG!
I'm so not saying heritage here - its a photo from
"back in the day"  and I'll smack anyone
that has heritage crossing their lips. 
Wow. was that a fewyearsago. Seriously.
Me and my bro.

Have fun. PLAY PLAY PLAY - take what moves you
and leave the rest. Link me up - Love to see.

Hey Hey Hey -

its HumpDay!!
And I have mulching to do. 
Activity points.
And lack of mojo.
I do have a page flirting with me.
But I'm not liking the direction so I'm letting
it marinate a bit. 
Thanks for your support on my hubs!!!

Posted two new hubs for your reading enjoyment...

I really do enjoy writing them more than I thought. The first one is about creating mini-albums. I love doing them, they are fun and easy. So Create, fun colorful mini albums is one I hope you enjoy.

The second one is in a "know it all" contest. The question was asked what games parents can play at home with their kids to promote learning. Well my brother and I learned to play cribbage around a generational table of fun.....Cribbage its all about counting. It also promoted some amazing memories.

Please remember to vote up on both, and there is a comments section as well. I appreciate your support.

Maddawg's Madcap Mayhem

and Challenge!
I was moved to slap paint on some white cardstock.
I was moved to use tags, punches, flowers and buttons.
I was moved to use random-ness in the title and journaling.
Basically all the challenges from ScrapNChat are on my page.
In full disclosure I had been set back last week battling a cold 
using mucinex and snorting saline like a junky.
I can do drug induced creatitivy.
White cardstock is making me swoon.
And the paint. Just picked at random.
I don't know much about the photo except who is in it,
the date, which my gram wrote on the back and that
it was Mother's day. And my grandpop took the photo
with his poloroid that he was so proud of.
This page just evolved 
over the course of acouple of days. 
And the little owl??
 That was part of the gift from the baby shower for the new
Murphy grandbaby.
Love it.

Journaling:  I'm thinking we may be somewhere around the Delaware water gap. I'm wearing my favorite outfit. Pretty heavy clothes for a picnic in May. Or not. Even my favorite headband and finally "allowed" to let my hair grow out. My brother and I were close. I liked that. I was 13 years old.

Recollections cardstock, my mind's eye, basic grey, pink paislee, office tags, making memories paint.

What a day yesterday....

Twas up and down with a few twists and turns.
I'm feeling much better, first off.
Which is a total win-win.
However, I was totally blown away when a scrap forum
I loved hanging out in closed. 
It was like having a bandaid ripped off.
It was a shock.
It was a great place to hang.
Living up to the NO drama, wonderful ladies
and just plain fun stuff and creativity going on.
A fast thinking member reopened another
site so we could regroup, whew! 
Keep you posted as it evolves.

A sweet goodie to help the healing along

came in the mail yesterday.
This is a Vera Bradly clutch.
On sale.
And purple makes me happy.
 I'm trying to downsize.
And it fits perfect.
And not only does it have a clutch strap.
It also converts to a shoulder strap.
I'm sooooo easy!!!

I also have published another hub. Dressing for church which is
in a contest. I'd appreciate your support. I hope you enjoy
the hub and vote UP!
Thank you my friends!

I was soooo hoping to feel better

by now, but alas, I'm still coughing, and hacking.
 Stuffy with headaches.
 And generally annoyed and tired.
I'm not happy here.
And when mama's not happy
nobody's happy.
It's a gift.
