So on to the waiting! Today was the last day for voting at Hannah's, so now its a waiting game to hear the results! There were a couple layouts that were REALLY good and 1 that I would have chosen over mine! So we shall see! My mom cracks me up as she was TOTALLY critiquing mine compared to others and she is SOOO new to this!! It is what it is with this and you just don't know what people are going to pick! I hope I hear something tomorrow, but I'm not sure. Stayed tuned for more details!
Exciting news!! My last LO I posted below was picked on the Dixie Pieces website as LO of the week!!! That was VERY EXCITING!! Oh speaking of Dixie Pieces it was just announced that the weekend of August 1st they will be having another online crop ALL weekend LONG!!! SO mark your calendars that was SOOOO MUCH FUN!!! Make sure you come over and play along!
I have a couple new LO's to post, but I can't find the pics at this moment, so I have to post again either tomorrow or Tuesday with the pics!
Well I am falling asleep here!

Well I need to go referee the monkey children. I think a trip to Joann's to use my last 50% off coupon is in order to make me feel better over my loss! ;)

So I am SOOO bummed Hannah's is having a 12 hour crop on Saturday and I have NO ONE to go with me!!! :( One scrappin' buddy is working, another has been put on bed rest, another is writing wedding invites, one is celebrating a 5 year wedding anniversary that day, and another doesn't want to spend a summer day inside! I am contemplating whether or not to go by myself or not go at all???? Dilemmas!!! I love Hannah's crops and the sales they have are awesome, but 12 hours is a LONG time to crop by yourself!! On the other hand I could get a LOT done if I was by myself! I just don't know what to do!! ARGH!!!

So I was a "bad" girl and I used that AWESOME 50% off coupon for Michael's and bought a cuttlebug! ;) I can't wait to play with it!! I was at Joann's and wanted to get it there, but it was more money there, but I did get a bunch of dies and embossing things on clearance! I am hoping to go play with it later, but I am just SO exhausted these days I don't know! I now plan to go back to Joann's and get some more stuff as they have all that stuff on sale this week! I was planning to go this morning, but the boys are not feeling good, so maybe tomorrow!
I hope everyone had a good Father's Day, ours was quiet. My grandfather is still recovering and didn't want to do anything and my mom and step dad were up at their condo in Fox Lake, and I tried calling my dad and he didn't answer, so who knows what he was doing! Dh's family didn't have anything and his dad is no longer with us, so we just hung out at home. The boys did work hard on picture frames again for Father's Day gifts, they REALLY love making them! Here is a pictures of the one they made for their dad I will post the other ones later. We customized each frame to that person's interests.
Well I better go get some lunch ready for us and maybe I will feel like scrapping during nap time! I haven't scrapped since the last crop I went to on the 6th!! Life has been busy and with the boys wanting to play outside every night I'm exhausted when we get in and can't get my butt off the couch! Oh yeah the contest is over now so I can show you my last creation from my last scrappy adventure! The picture is bad as it was taken at night, I should try and do a new one-add that to the growing list! LOL!OK this is REALLY bad I will change it later!

So I found a new place to get pictures developed on a message board and its a new company and as a promo they are giving 400 FREE pictures and a 8x8 personalized book!! The pictures are 200 4x6 and 200 5x7!!!! YES FREE 5x7's!!! I placed and received my first order and the shipping for 100 pictures was $9.98 and the quality of the pictures is FANTASTIC!!!! I am VERY happy with the way the pictures turned out I will continue to order more from them! I can give you the link to the promo for them if you leave me your e-mail. They are only running this promo till they hit 20,000,000 FREE print credit and they are a little over half way there!
In other happy scrappy news I found out I won the May Challenge at Dixie Pieces and I will be getting an acrylic album!! I am SOOO EXCITED!!!! I wanted to get one when I was at Hannah's on Friday and totally forgot!! Guess it was a good thing! LOL!! I can't wait to get it and start playing with it!! You should really check out Dixie Pieces if you haven't yet- the kits are AWESOME and the girl there are FABULOUS!!
Well here are a couple of my LO's form this weekend- 1 is for the July guest designer over at Back Porch Memories, so I can't show it to you till after the winner is picked. But you can always go over to back Porch Memories and look in the July guest designer folder and find mine. ;)
I had fun with Crackle paint and several colors of Glimmer Mist on Grungeboard with this LO!
And for this LO I had fun just laying different colors of Glimmer Mist on the Grungeboard! I also sprayed the cardstock with some Pearl Glimmer Mist to give it a little sparkle!
While I was at Hannah's I turned in my LO in Design team, so my fingers are crossed! The voting will be June 15-29th and after that the winner will be announced, so stayed tuned...

I guess on a positive note I can say there aren't as many blooms this year as there were last year! Last year the ENTIRE bush was covered with blooms!
Update on my grandfather he may be coming home today, they had to give him 2 units of blood yesterday because he lost too much blood in the surgery. The kidney issue is a cyst that is not cancer, so they are leaving it alone, and the mass in his testicle is a hydro seal that will go away on its own-they will check it in a month. SO hopefully he is on the road to recovery and will be home and his good old self again soon!
Well Thanks For Looking!
