Some Beauty and Some Food and a little SOAPBOX! :):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all.....

Wowwwwwwwwwww!!! What a WEEK!!!! I have been soooooooooo BUSY....well, the WHOLE family has been busy!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):)

Our newest challenge is up at These are a Few of My Favorite Things!!! :):):):) This time around we wanna see your FAVE FOOD!!!!! Talk about YUMMY!!! Hope U all can PLAY! :):):):):):):):):):):):) When I married my 100% POLISH Hubby...I was introduced to the AMAZING WORLD of PIEROGIES!!! And if U look CLOSELY at this LO and see there is a woman peering at me as I am trying to eat my YUMMY is what I have to say about that......."Journaling: Just so you know... I see you eyeing my pierogies- and you better back off! They are MINE All mine mine mine!!" :):):):):):):) And a few of my friends sent me some goodies that helped make this LO....and some of those friends think because they helped by sending me goodies to make the LO....then I should send them some PIEROGIES!!! Ummmmmmmmmm.....did they NOT read my journaling??? LOL!!! :):):):):):):):):)

Paper from Sarah
GCD tag from Deana
Hearts from Jeanet
Ribbon from Mandy
SASS arrow from Nikki
Love Story tag from LivingRoomFloor's ETSY shop! :):):):):):):):):)

And I wanted to share the TWO LO's I made for One Little Word (OLW)! :) This time the word is BEAUTY....and I couldn't decide which photo I wanted to use...sooooooooooooo I made TWO LO's!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

The first one....the title reads: "Beauty is... ...finding an old family photo." This is a photo of three of my Aunts, one of my Uncles, my Mommy (in the front wearing the lilac) and my Grandfather (my Mommy hand is on his knee). This is THE KODAK group my friends....I will have to double check with my Mommy....but I believe that ALL of these family members worked for Kodak....(I am only NOT sure of the Uncle and one of the Aunts).....I used mostly a kit on this....with a few vintage items added in.....the flower in the bottom corner is from my dearest Linda! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

And the second LO I made for OLW has the title: "Beauty is not caused. It is." Again, I used a kit on here, but added some vintage buttons that my friends Vicki and Ashley bought me....and that vintage tag is from my dearest AMY! :):):):):):):):):):):)

And I wanted to share something else....this is what I found on Brookie's outside play castle this morning when I took the dog out....I SURE HOPE IT IS GOOD LUCK....cuz in a moment....I am getting on a soap box...and I don't need any lightening striking me right now!!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):)

Ok....I am going step up to the soapbox now!!! LOL!!! Soooooooooo.....on Thursday night, we went to Adam's open house at his new school! Now, literally...U can stand at the end of my driveway and see the school...that is how close we are....sooooooooooo we KNOW that they have been BUSY all summer long BUILDING a BRAND new 2 story building on the campus (the rest of the school is one story), and we have seen them re-do the entire parking lot and add trees to the parking lot (side note...I went to this SCHOOL 24 YEARS ago...and they was NEVER a reason to have trees in the parking lot...and if U know anything about Phoenix, is a DESERT and these are PLUSH TREES for shade or anything like that...they are thinned boring DESERT types trees....anywho....)...........soooooooooooo HERE we are at the OPEN HOUSE....and the Principal does his little that SPEECH...we (the parents) get to AWESOME the new stuff looks on the campus...and that it COST $6 Million DOLLARS to do!!!! Ok....breathe Julie....breathe...yes, I know, I stated above that I went to this school 24 years ago...and WE ALL know that things wear out and need to be improved, etc etc etc......but then HE PROCEEDS to tell US that there will be NO YEARBOOK this year....because its NOT IN THE BUDGET!!!! about, don't spend MONEY on the trees in the parking lot and FIT a yearbook into the BUDGET?!?!?! Then....he APOLOGIZES to US....because since school has started...the BUSES have been all messed up (luckily, Adam walks...sooooo I do not have to worry about that with him.....but other parents I am sure are upset).....I guess they are late in picking up and dropping off etc etc etc....sooooooooooo HE tells US that the reason for it is....U ready for this???? THE DISTRICT had to CUT $2 MILLION DOLLARS for transportation!!!! REALLY?!?!?!?! Isn't getting our children to and from school KINDA A PRIORITY!?!?!?!!? Then HE tells US that they have had to CUT a LOT of TEACHERS and PROGRAMS in the school district because of budget costs!!!! Guess how MUCH they CUT???? $4 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!! WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! At this time...I am FUMING.....they decide to CUT a TOTAL of $6 MILLION dollars for transportation and teachers and programs....and THEY BUILT A BUILDING, PARKING LOT and TREES for this school?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Needless to say....I am NOT a HAPPY TAX PAYER!!!! And ANYONE who KNOWS ME....(BEKKA....where are U here to defend me???? LOL).....I am ONE of the MOST SUPPORTIVE PEOPLE when it comes to teachers!!!!!!! I get sooooooooooooooooo MAD when I see that this HOLLYWOOD star made $40 MILLION dollars to make that movie....and this STAR athlete just SIGNED with this team for $100 MILLION DOLLARS.....and TEACHERS get CRAP for salaries!!! I'm SORRY....but if it wasn't for the TEACHERS....we would have no athletes, actors, doctors, lawyers...etc etc etc......I have the up most respect for teachers....and to hear Adam's school CUT TEACHERS...and then adds a stupid new building....not HAPPY!!!! Ok.....soooooooooooooooooo off MY SOAPBOX now!!! LOL!!! Thanks for listening!!!!!

LOVE TO ALL (well....maybe not ALL....Adam's school district really not getting my love right now!!! LOL)!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Where are all my TWILIGHT FANS!!!! And MORE EXCITING scrapping NEWS!!! :):):):):):):):)

Hi all!!!!!

What a WEEKEND it has BEEN soooooooooooo far!!!! :):):):):):):):):):)

Yesterday....I went to a Twilight Convention with my friends grandson (who is also a TWILIGHT freak like me!!! LOL).....and I will share those photos in just a second.....but I wanted to share some EXCITING SCRAPPING NEWS FIRST!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):) Yesterday, while I was at the convention....I got a call from Nikki Sivils....the owner of Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker....where I am on the DT....and she had the MOST EXCITING news for me!!!!!!! MY LO (scrap page) that I made for Nikki's team and went the CHA show for Nikki's booth was RECOGNIZED by the folks at CREATING KEEPSAKES MAGAZINE ..... and FEATURED on the magazines BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SEE IT HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW COOL IS THAT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? When Nikki told me.....I am standing outside at the Twilight convention where it is a NICE AND HOT 115 DEGREES in Phoenix, Arizona and I GET GOOSEBUMPS because I am sooooooooooooooooo THRILLED!!!!!! YAY!!!!!! I was soooooooooo happy that NOT only did Creating Keepsakes recognize Nikki's products....but also chose my LO to show!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I am still STOKED over this!!!!! But now....for some TWILIGHT photos!!!!!! My DT at These are a Few of My Favorite Things knew I was going to this....and have been bugging me to show photos....but hehehehehehehehe....I took OVER 300 photos at the event (long story....but we didn't have really close seats and I wasn't sure which ones would turn out "good"...sooooooooo I just took a ton and assumed I would figure it all out later!! LOL)....sooooooooo I have been editing all morning!!!! :):):):) At first...I was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy EXCITED about this event....because the actors that play Emmett, Alice and Jasper where supposed to be there....but then on this past Thursday we got notice that THEY HAD ALL CANCELED because they had to be in Vancouver to start rehearsals for Eclipse....and YES, they had replacements, but I was like, really????? That is who the replacements are???? BUT....after seeing them and listening to was ACTUALLY an AMAZING TIME!!!!! All the stars that appeared were WONDERFUL, FUNNY and VERY GRACIOUS with their time!!!! Me and Tyler (my friends grandson) even got a photo op with Edi Gathegi (Laurent from Twilight and New Moon) ....but sadly....we can't even get them mailed to us until August 31st! Oh well....we will have them, just not yet!! LOL :):):):):):):):):)

Sooooooooooo here are the photos! :):):):):):):):):):):)

Me and Tyler!!! (I think I was the ONLY person there WITHOUT a TWILIGHT shirt on!! LOL) :):):)

And these were our Hosts for the event.....they are "The Hillywood Show" folks....and they became "famous" when they did a Twilight Spoof Movie....IF U HAVEN'T seen this....U soooooooooooooooooooo SHOULD....IT IS HILARIOUS!!!!!! See it HERE ON YOU TUBE!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

"Edward and Bella"


"Jasper and Alice"

And....."Jasper" was taking questions from the audience and he sat right in front of Me & Tyler! :):):):):):)

And the actor Michael Welch (Mike Newton from the movie) was there....and he was sooooooooooooooooo ADORABLE and FUNNY!!!! Of course....I truly think he needed a chill pill (LOL!) because he WOULD NOT stop moving!!! LOL!!! I think the entire time he was up there....he sat ONLY ONCE!!!! LOL :):):):):)

A fan in the audience asked him to re-create his "dance" that he did outside the cafe window in the scene with Billy and Bella having dinner.....and LOL! he did! :):):):):):):)

And here a fan had asked him to give one of us his water bottle....and LOL!!! again HE DID! Funny thing is....A GUY CAUGHT IT!!! LOL :):):):):):):):):)

He was really FUNNY and NICE.....and for the longest time...I kept thinking...I know he is YOUNG....but he must have an old soul...because he kept making references to Jim Morrison, Queen, and other "older" musicians....and I thought that was pretty cool that his range for music just doesn't involve new artists that are out there today! :):):):):):):):):):):)

Next up was Edi Gathegi (Laurent from Twilight and New Moon)....and he WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!! He just kept us laughing soooooooooooooooooo HARD! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And THEN THEN THEN a fan asked him to CALL ANYONE from the MOVIE!!!! AND he DID!!!!!! He put his phone right up to the microphone....and U WILL NEVER EVER GUESS WHO HE CALLED!!!!!! He called STEPHENIE MEYER .... the AUTHOR of the BOOKS!!!!!! He was telling her that we all wanted to talk to the actors....and she laughed and said that they all were in the middle of viewing the New Moon movie and couldn't talk!!!! LOL :):):):):):):):):)

Then came the WOLVES!!!!!!! These GUYS WERE HILARIOUS!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUNNY!!!!! There was Gil Birmingham (Billy Black), Chaske Spencer (Sam in New Moon), and Alex Meraz (Paul from New Moon)!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):) These guys had the girls SCREAMING (for joy of seeing them of course) and JUST all of US LAUGHING! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here is Me & Tyler in front of the Werewolves and Vampire signs they had there!!! :):):):):):):):):):):)

All in was an AWESOME EVENT!!!!!! And Me & Tyler are all ready talking about GOING next YEAR! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

Ok.....and IF U ARE STILL WITH ME.....I have some MORE things to share!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):) Our NEW CHALLENGE IS UP at These are a Few of my Favorite Things....and this time we wanna see a LO, card or altered project about YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE or MOVIE QUOTE! :):):):):):):):):) Hope U all can play along!!!! :):):):):):):):):) I used a QUOTE from Ferris Bueller's Day Off..."Life Moves Pretty Fast"....and YES!!!! That is LITTLE OLE ME on that SWING with MY MOUTH WIDE OPEN!!! LOL!!!!!!! And just a side note....Yes, I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee Ferris Bueller....but SERIOUSLY....the other night I was flipping channels on the TV and see this movie on the AMC (American Movie Classics) channel!!!!!! Nooooooooooooo....I am NOT OLD ENOUGH for that MOVIE to be considered a CLASSIC!!!! UGH!!!!!! That channel is supposed to be for "Gone with the Wind," "Cassablanca" etc etc etc....NOT MOVIES from the '80's!!!! OUCH....that makes me FEEL OLD!!! LOL!! :):):):):):):):):)

And the last....but never the least thing I want to share is the LO I made for the latest Cafe Mojo Challenge!!!! This time we wanna see some BLUE and BROWN!!!!
