Tomorrow is my last day of work for the summer! Can't wait! We are also off for another track weekend and being that we have a holiday next week, we will be camping for a few days after the meet. I do have some posts scheduled, however, lately my scheduled posts have not been posting, so my fingers are crossed. Otherwise I will have something next Tuesday night or Wednesday. Have a great weekend everyone.

Wow!

OMG! If you don't know already Pink is my favorite color and so I am so over the moon with excitement right now. See why right here (scroll down to the bottom of the post). Let's just say I am tickled pink!

A sketch from Inspired Blueprints I did this page today to give to Jason when he gets home. It is kinda my father's day gift to him. He doesn't even know that I ordered this pic of him finishing a 10 K race (in about 42 minutes). When I find out the exact time I will write it on the journalling tag. Of course this also fits the OCC Star Challenge as well.

UR Cool

I used a sketch from the Got Sketch blog: I am starting to feel a bit of mojo finally! For the card I incorporated the 365 Card Challenge - say it with stripes. It gave me a chance to use the new Fancy Pants paper I had in the mail today from Lisa's Scrap Shack. Love this paper! The popsicle has been painted with Shimmerz and mounted with foam strips.

I can't believe it!

I was so looking forward to the weekend and on the downward slide to school ending. I did all of my report cards early so that they were done. We have a new system some of us here have tried out and well.... let's just say that I just found out after school today that all of my report cards are lost, gone into cyberspace somewhere! I can not really believe it. Let's just say I am so happy to have tried out the new system!

Time 2 Celebrate

Here is this weeks Card Postitioning Systems sketch: Now I finally was able to get into my craft room. However, I am so exhausted the mojo just wasn't working for me.

Cards Magazine

I hope to get into my craft room soon! It was another track weekend, and it is report card time so play time for me is limited!


In the meantime, did you know that the fabulous CARDS magazine is also digital? It is and it is so affordable! It has to be one of the best magazines going. My favorites are the Scrapbook Trends and Cards. They also have some fabulous Idea magazines that they put out about 6 times per year. Here is a sample of one of the Mini Album 2008 Albums digital magazine.I suggest you check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Watch for this out in blog land:

A very quick (like 10 minutes!) card for today's 365 Card Challenge.

We are off to Victoria for another track meet, but I wanted to make sure I made a card for the challenge as I have done every other one this week, so it would be my first week of completing all challenges! See there is a reason it is good to get up at 5:30 am! LOL
