She Likes Me! She Really Likes Me!!!

I just have to share this with ya'll! The most amazing thing happened today! I went to have my morning visit on Kim B's blog, and lo and behold, there was one of my LO's! Yes, that's right, I have been published on Kim Broedelet's blog!!! See for yourself right here! I have been a faithful follower of her since I started digi-scrapping, and believe me I have the gigabytes of supplies on my EHD to prove it! ROTFL!!! This LO is of my sister Trish & myself locked up in the stocks at the Texas Renaissance Festival. I used Kim's newest kit "Hearty Tarty" and you can snag it for yourself right here. This is a fabulously versatile kit, not just a Valentines kit. It sure was lucky for me, it brought Mr. MoJo back AND got me published on my idol's blog! LOL!!!

Down by the Lily Pond

Today the fabulous Vicki P. starts the release of the latest collab with Mel H. and it is named "Down by the Lily Pond". You can pick up the pieces here and here all this week! This is a fun kit, I actually made two LO's!!! Maybe Mr. Mojo is sneaking back! The one of Wyatt putting out the reindeer food is kinda' specific, so I didn't make it into a QP, but if anyone wants it, jusk ask. You know what they say about us Southern girls, we aim to please!
The second LO is of our soggy shopping trip in Playa del Carmen. (I don't dare use the T-floater word)! Password is: rain

Shame, shame shame!!!

Okay, ya'll have just shamed me into making the time to post! It's Sunday afternoon, and if I don't do it now, there's no tellin' when I'll be able to. It's getting down to crunch time, I have all the year-end reports done, all that is left are the W-2's & 1099's. (BIG PITA!!!) Let me tell 'ya, I have been workin' like a Texas whirlwind here, even the boss man commented on the woody state of my desk the other day!
I just got back from watchin' the grands last night so that Matt the Brat & My Girl could have a little bit of couple time. We made Jiffy Pop and Toll House Cookies, drank a lot of YoHoo and watched a lot of BAD Cartoon Channel. I ate tons of Lilly's plastic food and watched Wyatt do all kinds of stuff on his PSP. Poor Matt the Brat, he's not quite thirty yet (May 25) but he seems to be falling apart. The poor babe has been diagnosed with kidney stones (that's what ruined the Jamaica vacation) and now it is probable that he has the gout. Evidently it is his knee that is affected, and he is barely hobbling around. He has SWAT training coming up in February, so ya'll say a little prayer for him. Speaking of the gout, my right foot started up last night, I haven't had a problem since Thanksgiving, but I guess my luck ran out!
Uh, lets see...what else has been happenin' , oh yeah, I went to the boats, ( my stress reliever) and I hit the jackpot on the Sizzling Sevens and also on the Wheel of Fortune. Unfortunately, I did not bring it all back, but I did manage to retain a substantial amount for the next venture. Do I see another piece of jewelry in my future? RTOTFL!!! I can only hope!!!
On a scrappin' note, I bought Kim B's new fab kit " Hearty Tarty" and it was just perfect for this LO of myself and Ms. Trish. Get it here. If any of ya'll would like to have it, I can ask for permission to offer it as a QP, just let me know.

At the moment, I am up to my eyeballs in quarterly & year end reports, W-2's, 1099's and other assorted tax bs, and I haven't had time to do much else. My desk looks like a tornado hit, wait it always looks like that! I hope that next month I will be able to get back to regular posting, until then, ya'll just hang in there with me.

Bah! Hum Bug!

I know everyone else is already doing Valentine's kits, but hey, this ain't Hellmart here. I hate the way you have to dodge the Christmas stuff when you're buying school supplies in August. And I really don't understand it in regards to scrapbooking. I mean, we do our thing AFTER the holiday, right? So, I'm bucking the trend and working on scrapping some of my Christmas pics. Password is: mad I shot these photos of Bugs and Sammy (my brother Steve & SIL Bev's furbabies) during the holidays. They have a large wardrobe of bandana's that they wear all they time, and they love them, but they weren't too pleased with the holiday attire that Bev picked out for them ! I used stuff from my Christmas kit for this LO, it's available several posts down.

Pompey Blues

This LO was done with Vicki P's newest kit. It's called "Pompey Blues" and is a lovely mix of blues and greens. The gear cog paper is perfect for boy pages, and it comes with a neat notepaper alpha. It's only $2.50 for a limited time, so run right over and get it now! Check it out here . The cutie pie who stars in this LO is my sister-in-law Bev's grandson Ryan. I had told Bev that I would love to take photos of their Christmas celebration for her so that she could just relax and enjoy. At first, Ryan informed me "NO pictures" and refused to look at the camera. Later in the day, he decided to make silly faces. Hey, when you're working with kids, you take what you can get! I got in quite a bit of practice with my new camera (over 200 shots), and I am LOVING it! The 75-300 zoom lens is great for getting candid shots of uncooperative subjects!

Hope ya'll have a great new year!

Hugs, Vicki
