oh, how sad ~ this is the last layout for The Amazing Digiscrapping Race, and the theme for Challenge 12 was to scraplift one of your partners LOs ~ I chose her 'most embarrassing moment' LO (which was totally awesome) and I also 'scraplifted' the header from the ADSR Blog ~ am sorry to see The Race come to an end, but look forward to Season 3 ~ thanks for a great time, Amanda *wink*

anyone who knows me well, has seen my curlers ~ and I've been known to leave home with them on from time to time too ~ so the theme for Challenge 9 (an embarrassing moment) was an easy one for me to decide upon ~ I have even driven all the way to town and gone into the grocery store with them (unknowingly) on my head LOL

the Milk Dude

these are photos of Dudie on his first day 'outside' after his accident
he wasn't able to actually get up onto the chair without my help,
but he did hang out on the front porch and enjoy the summer afternoon...
he has since then recovered quite nicely, although he will probably
never walk the same again... but he's happy, I'm happy,
and all is well in our little world :o-)

Challenge #7 was to create a multiphoto layout using a minimum of 10 photos, with an added twist: start the LO by adding your papers, frames, photos, and journaling, then trade LOs with your partner, who gets to finish the piece by adding the embellishments. Am sure it would have been alot more fun, if I didn't have major technical difficulties this week with my scanner and camera, but here it is... "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight!"

yep, messy was the theme for Challenge #6, and only needed to be done by one of the team participants... this 'messy' LO was done by my digi-partner, Amanda, although I have to admit it's wayyy too cute for messy *wink* ...she did an awesome job, even her daughter luv'd it! You can find the layout credits here, as well as all of Amanda's entries for the Race!

Laundry Day

oh, the smell of clean, crisp linens dried in the hot Summer sun... just makes me smile, and brings wonderful memories of my Mom... who always hung the laundry out on the clotheline during the warmer months of the year. Every Monday morning, she would start the 'laundry ritual,' and yepper... Monday is Laundry Day for me too! I also find myself taking a good sniff as I'm taking everything off the line, before folding it in the basket, and a little Lynyrd Skynyrd even goes thru my head while I'm doing it... oooOOOooo that smell :o-)

I have to admit, journaling is not my forte, and journaling was the theme for Challenge #5 ~ I kept it short and sweet!
