Some pages, some awards...and some Fathers Day photos! :):):):):):):):):)

Hi all.....

Been busy, busy, busy trying to get ready for my trip...and a side note..NOT EVEN close!!!! LOL :):):) But I wanted to share some pages I have made! :):):):):):):)

BUT....FIRST things FIRST!!!!! I wanna SHARE the FUNNY COMIC my Dad gave me yesterday!!!! LOL LOL LOL!!! How TRUE is this?!?!?!?! :):):):):):):):):):):) Sorry its sooooooooo small...click on it to read it better! LOL :):):):):):):)



The first page is for the latest OLW!! This time the word it "GOOD" ...and ONE of MY fave phrases EVER is...."It's all GOOD!" LOL :):):):):):):):) I made this using the NEW NIKKI SIVILS papers and I only added thickers and a music sheet from Amy J. that I glimmer misted! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) The journaling reads: "new flip flops, new polish, new day.....it's all GOOD!" Those are the YUMMY flip flops Georgia from Brazil sent me!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE them! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)





Next I want to share the latest Cafe Mojo!!! This time we wanna see FLOWERS!!!! The title reads: "16 or two? The jury is still out on that!" Yes, that is Brookie on her cell phone on her bed at AGE 2!!!!! EEEEKKKK!!!! I know...I'm in trouble!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):) I used alphas that Patti sent me! YAY! Thanks Patti! And I used a little piece of a music sheet called "The Brook" from Amy M.!!!! Thanks Amy M.! :):):):):):):):):):):)







Next up is Scrapping the Music!!!!!! This weeks song is, "Because of You" by Kelly Clarkson! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE that song....and I chose some "positive" lyrics from it...."A Smile, A Laugh, Everyday!" That is my funny Adam!!!!! I used a music sheet from Sharmaine...and the gold doily is from Mandy!!! Thanks girls!!! I loveeeeeeeeee my goodies!!!! The little tree stamp is from Nikki Sivils's new line too! :):):):):):):):):)





Next up is KIDDIE LIT!!!! This time we are basing our challenge on, "The Velveteen Rabbit" and we wanna see some soft texture and something that inspires you about the book!!!! I chose for my journaling: "Because once you are real - you can't be ugly - except to people who don't UNDERSTAND"

For those of U that know...Brookie was born with Port Wine Stains...and we STRUGGLE with how people treat her after a surgery...they pretty much treat her like a leper...and if they only knew how BEAUTIFUL this baby was when "the spots" have disappeared...*sigh*....this is why I'm happy my parents taught me to NEVER judge....ever......*sigh*....

I used a NoelMignon.com kit on this page! :):):):):):):):):):)







Next I want to share some awards that were passed onto to me!!!!

This one is from Bree and Jocelyn!!! Thanks GALS!!!! And Jocelyn....I am praying for your little Gavin to get better soon! :):):):):):):):):):):)



And this one is from Jay!!! I loveeeeeeeee it JAY!!! Thanks! :):):):):):):):)



And with this one...I am supposed to tell five honest things...sooooooo here GOES!

1) I hate liars!!! Don't lie to me....trust me...I will find out! Period! :)
2) I can't stand coffee!!! Don't even like the smell of it! When I was pregnant with Adam...my poor ex-husband couldn't make it in our house...he had to go to 7-Eleven every day to get....just was soooooooooo sick from the smell! LOL :)
3) Unless U prove me wrong...I will be your friend for life! :)
4) I worked in the retail industry for soooooooooo long, that now I train my family to ALWAYS put things back were they found them! I can not stand it when someone takes a shirt of a shelf....and then just tosses it back....grrrrrrrrrrr! Don't get me started! LOL :)
5) I memorize numbers like U wouldn't believe! Not just phone numbers either! Check balances, numbers at work, SSN #'s of people of my past and present...it's a sickness I tell U!!! LOL :):):)

And I wanted to share Brian's Fathers Day Present he got from Brookie!!! We didn't celebrate "big" yesterday....as we are waiting for Adam to come home first! :):):):):):):)












Soooooooooo there U have it...I would LOVE for all my readers to snag these awards from me! :):):):) I would love to see your "honest" answers! :):):):):):):):):):)

I hope my scrappy friends can join me on the ABOVE challenges!!! WOULD love to see U play along!!!!! And DON'T FORGET to get your name in the NIKKI SIVILS STAMP SET GIVE-AWAY that are a couple posts back! :):):):):):):):):):) I might be MIA as I leave EARLY Thursday morning...but hope to catch up with everyone soon! :):):):):)
