Friendship by the Sea...

This month's challenge was to use as many circles as you want. I have always enjoyed how Erin does a bunch of thin circles on her LOs so I sort of did that. I used Creative Imaginations paper that went perfect with the sunset photo of the group last year at the beach house. I also used the new Hambly overlay, Creative Cafe ruler paper, Maya Road chipboard word, some stickles and glimmer mist.

I also used the new binder border punch from EK Success. I had tons of fun doing this LO, I just got to figure out how to put it in my typewriter to journal.

I had a lot of fun yesterday at the Copic Certification. I'm now certified. Watch out, LOL. What I do know is that I need to practice a lot of my techniques to get bettter. And as with anything, I'm a shopaholic step one, now I "need" more cool tools to use my copics.

As I write this, my parents are in flight, my sister called me to let me know that they had left El Salvador. If you read this before 1 am tonight, pray for them to have a safe flight. I can't wait to see them.

Have a great day.

I'm tired...

Well, it has been a while since my last update. I know, I'm really busy and sometimes forget to update until someone reminds me. But my parents made it ok to El Salvador, they come back on Friday. I'm excited to see them and see all the pictures and hear the stories. Kitties are doing great. Misifu no longer has the lump on her leg. She will most likely never be vaccinated again, so we don't run the risk. Diasque is doing great with his diabetes. I think we have him under good regulation. He is not going to be seen by the vet until July. Me I'm tired, this week I will be working really early. I was at work this morning at 5 am. On Wednesday I'm going to a Copic Markers certification. I have loved these pens since I first hear about them. I have quite a collection, but don't know how to use them correctly, Maria took this cert in Vancouver last year, so I know I will be learning some cool stuff. Shelly is also going with me.

Also thanks to Laurie G. I got a spot to Creative Escape. I'm excited, I even got the time off. Hopefully nothing prevents me from going. I can't wait to get my creativeness going on.

this past weekend I taught my message board class, all of the students were great. They went home with a wonderful project. Some were even gifts. We finished the class early, which is a first for me. I never, ever finish ontime. I went home to clean up my "corner" mess in the living room and tried to pull stuff for the garage sale that started yesterday and goes until Thursday at Picture ME Perfect. There were some great deals. I came home with canvas but I need nothing else, I have way too much. Wow I probably could have a garage store like Suzy had before with all of my stuff. Let's not talk about cardstock, way too much. I don't need any cardstock, but specially pink, green, blue, orange and purple. Way too much. I'm hoping once I'm all organized and cleaned up my huge mess of scrap stuff that I will be able to kit things before going to scrap. Let's cross my fingers. So this goal of cleaning my mess is the one that is hard to keep up with. Along with exercising more.

Well hopefully everyone is having great time. I will post soon my CJ challenge, it has been done for about 3 weeks but haven't had the time to scan it in. I will share soon.

Have a great week.

Wow that took a long time...

I just finished checking them in. That process bites. Their software was annoying it kept booting me out. Wow, I made a mistake and will have to get it taken care of tonight at the airport. But I got them checked in and seats where they wanted, up front, daddy on the window and mom on the aisle. Now on to sleep for the next 3.5 hours until kitty needs food/insulin. Today, shhhhhhhhhhhh don't tell my boss, I might be too tired and taking cat naps...LOL

April's GG Assignments...

Since, I want to make sure I'm done with all my projects as soon as possible, I also just finished my April Garage Girls assignments.

GG March 09 Assignments...

I totally forgot to post my Garage Girl Assignments. I love them, I'm so surprised that I have been getting all of my layouts done with out a problem, but I think that using 8.5" x 11" really makes it easier. I'm not stuck anymore, it must have been the "sqare" format. Anyways here are my March layouts and card:

Must keep busy until 135 am...

So my parents are leaving for 3 weeks Friday (early morning, 135 am to be exact). They are going to El Salvador to visit family. I'm really excited that they are taking vacation, but I'm also really scared. El Salvador is still a country with a lot of problems, people stealing with no shame, kidnapping, etc. So I hope and pray that they are ok and enjoy themselves for 3 weeks. They have plans to spend Holy week in Guatemala, my mom says that they celebrate it beautifully. So right now, I'm staying up until 135 am to check them into the flight and get them seating together. The airline let's you check in 24 hours before the flight. GRHHHHHHHHH. So I really have to keep busy. I'm going to be posting other stuff to make time go by quickly.
