Scraps Away and other stuff...

I had to use up some scraps for this one (25 of them to be exact) and it was FUN! I'd definitely do it again cause Lord knows I got tons of scraps (some of us keep 'em ya know!---and they can come in handy, isn't that right Tania?)

I also got a chance to scrap Ella and her cous' goofing around with some poker chips on New Year's Eve at the cottage...(this one is just scraps too!)

And a page of my Ella with her beautiful blues eyes while we were tubing in December...(for this one the paper is new! Go figure!)

Who doesn't love a sock monkey?

I had so much fun completing this page, and am very proud of the cute little monkey I painted! Someone should come up with a sock monkey paper...hmmm, if only I knew of someone who creates scrapbooking papers...

Kiss kiss!

I know it's a day late, but Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Here's a page from this month's edition of Scrapbook Extra

And while I'm at it, here are a couple more...

Tag...I'm it!

Okay, so I've been tagged several times, but have never answered because I am WAAAAYYY lazy. But, I guess at some point I'l have to play, so here goes:

6 things you don't know about me:

1. I have never done recreational drugs. I've never even smoked a cigarette for crying out loud! It's not that I'm a goody-two-shoes, it's just that I never felt the need to experiment in that way. I've had Valium though, and that was FUN! I did however lose half of that day somewhere...

2. Pizza is by far my favourite food. Thin crust, pan, all-dressed, veg, pep and cheese--whatever, doesn't matter, I'll eat it!

3. In another life, I would like to be chef with my own tv show...

4. I want to adopt a retired Greyhound. We almost did this before Ella was born, then chickened out. I think it has to do with the fact that I'd gave to walk the dog, even in -30 weather----nope, not gonna happen!

5. I want to hire a housekeeper...she doesn't have to come all that often, just once every two weeks would be helpful!

6. I'm going to marry Orlando Bloom. It's okay, Steve knows about it...

Now I'm supposed to tag 6 others, but I don't have that many friends......sigh......

I had some fun creating this page for a "No Bazzill" out my pens and started to doodly-doo on some Scrapmode paper, and Voila! A page about how The Gooch is really slow at starting to say Mama (the scan is really crooked, but I didn't have the energy to do it again!) BTW, he says Mama now, and I've been told that boys are slower than girls to start talking, so I feel a little better!

The good, the bad, and the "oh so much fun!"

I just had the oddest weekend... Work was something awful, we had way too many patients, not enough nurses, and the kids were really quite sick requiring ALOT of one on one nursing time which we didn't we have time to spare. I ended up leaving work an hour late on Sunday, and after a twelve hour shift, let me tell ya that leaving an hour late is the LAST THING you want to be doing! Add the cra**y snow and freezing rain to the mix and VOILA! no parking downtown near the hospital so I had to pay $15 a day to park so that I could WORK! ARGH!

So that was obviously "The Bad".

The "good" was that we had some great friends come and visit from Boston, and we hadn't seen them in a while so it was great to be able to catch up, even if I did get there and hour later than I was supposed too!

The "oh so fun" part was a great group of gals (you know who you are) who got together in cyberspace and had a fun time creating together and challenging each other. I had a BLAST, so thanks ladies, from the bottom of my rather exhausted heart!

I think I'll take today to recoup a little, spend time with my OWN kids who are both healthy (thank GOD!) and maybe finish up a few scrappy things from the weekend that I didn't get a chance to accomplish!

Have a great week....and HAPPY MONDAY
