ATSDTC51 All That Scraps Wed. Challenge

Hey, Just gotta use the free download Crystal drew of this cutie pie doggie. He looked sheepish to me, like he messed something up. Oh like skipping a birthday. The challenge over at All That Scraps was to use the grid technique. That sounding like fun,also. Here's that entry.... I made up the sentiment. And isn't that paw print brad cute? Didn't have a ATS stamp. Hope that's OK?


I got an award, first one ever, from Crystal. She's one of my favorite bloggers, because she always makes me smile. She even tackles hard issues with an upbeat attitude. Part of this award is to tell 10 things about me.

1.I got bucked off a horse I'm breaking on Monday, twice(because cowgirls get back on). I laughed right away because I didn't get hurt, just bruises, everywhere.

2. My father has stage 4 malignant melanoma. He is doing very very well right now.

3. My inlaws raised the nicest person in the world, and I'm married to him.

4. We are raising two wild boys, who I hope will someday be great men.

5. I would do anything my family asked me to.

6. I love gadgets,ipods, computers, blue tooth, modems, printers, dslr cameras, all of it!

7. I scrap to remember my life, and those close to me. I like to show my kids how proud I am of them.

8. I GREW up and don't read People mag, complain about the weather, or whine about not having enough of anything, because I am a very lucky girl.

9. I buy expensive cowboy boots, and wear them with everything, and to everything, including,weddings,funerals,plays in the city, everywhere.

10. I am amazed and happy with the new friends I've made by blogging, I cherish these cyber friendships!!

Thanks again Crystal!!

Scrappy Sunday Challenge

Over at Papercraftplanet they have so many great challenges. I like the Scrappy Sunday Challenge because that seems to be a day that I don't feel guilty about scrapping. There's also a little prize on this one from Scrappadies. so that would be cool to win. sb053109 is the tag over there.


I loved the colors that Shawne used for the CDSWCC22. They are grey and pink. I have a 30 year old grey gelding I grew up with. His mother died giving birth, so my brother and I bottlefed him when I was 8. He followed us around the yard, and chased our bicycles. He's a crusty old kinda bosy horse now. But when I was 12 we rode him everyday all summer long. I like this card for my gf who always rode with me and I will save it for her birthday.

3-D Pull Treat Card

Hi, I got in to making these cute pull-treat cards for my son's baseball team. Even though my son thinks they are too cute for big strong 17 year olds. Anyway. I used the scallop punch and circle punch from Stampin Up. Also the two star punches are stampin up. The paper is odds and ends from my huge scrap drawer. All were sized to 6.5 x 4.5 inches. The pattern in from 3-D Challenge on PCP from last week. I think this would be a fun Valentine, and also great to hide journaling on a page... I computer generated the sentiment.

Birthday Layout

It was stormy in Iowa last night, and after a great dinner together as a family, I sat down to scrap. I used In My Minds Eye paper for this double layout. Who knew I could pull off flowers and glitter for a guy birthday. But my husband is that sweet. aaaawwww. I stitched alot around the photos, and didn't stamp on this one. i enlarged the "Happy" instead of "birthday." I really like that photo of Dave by the cake. I'm going to fill out the journaling now. Thanks for looking. As always comments encourage, bring a smile, and are always a joy!
