hi all....

Wanted to share some lo's today! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

First is for the newest Sketchy Thursdays sketch!!!! I used a NoelMignon.com kit....and added in some YUMMY (U know I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this sooooooooooo much!!) REAL WOOD paper from Creative Imaginations...and some of their stickers too...had to use the 'fork' to go along with my "shrimp" theme here!! LOL!!! The journaling talks about how I always called my Brother, "The Shrimp" when I was growing up...and my Daddy always telling me not to call him that...cuz someday he was gonna be taller than me!! LOL!!! Wellllllllllllll...I am the BIG SISTER and just KNEW that he never ever would be taller than me!! LOL!!!! Wellllllll....now he is 6' 2" and I am 5' 9".....LOL...soooooooooooo much for "The Shrimp!" LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

and here is our sketch this week! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here is the one I have made for this weeks song at Scrapping the Music!!! This weeks song is Mary J. Blige's "Just Fine!" LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this song!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  10. First off, you are 5'9!!! I'm surprised by that I thought you were a little bit taller but didn't think you were that tall. If you ever can come to Edmonton wait till you see me, I am 4'11 lol I am the real shrimp.

    that is such a cute story and I can relate as I am the older sister and my brother is taller than me and I always thought he was going to be short also.

    Need to scraplift this idea one day it will make my brother laugh. Love the paper and the fork is just too cute.

    and of course the vintage clock and journal quote.
    and miss smiley face =)

    Love you Julie!!!

  31. Love the new lay-outs. That is to funny about the shrimp story:) I was telling my friends daughter about when I was little the big kids used to call me a shrimp the other day. I thought they meant I looked like the shrimp my Daddy loved to eat. Ah the things kids do, say and think:)
