*watch out Edward...there's a new gal in town* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

hi all.....

I wanted to share some new lo's today! :):):):):):) First, is for our latest GDT sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Normally, the DT doesn't play along with the GDT challenge.. but this time... we are! YAY! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) Here is our sketch for the GDT challenge! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)):):):):):):):):):):):):)  ******EDIT....ooooppppsssss.... my bad :(  I had the dates wrong on the release of this... my apologies to Diana and Heidi... this is going to go live on 09/03!! I had the DUE DATE for the DT stuck in my head for the date on this one... not the RELEASE date!! Sorry again... make sure to head over to Sketchy Thursdays on 09/03 to see the release of this sketch******** :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here is my take on the sketch!!! My title is ... "Watch out Edward...there's a new gal in town!" lol! And this is Brookie wearing some vampire teeth... {{for those that don't know... I am referring to Edward Cullen!}} :):):):):):):):) I used a Kreatorville Krafts kit on this lo...and added a YUMMY lacey flower from Tessa's ETSY shop!!! *love it*!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And we have a new challenge over at Nikki Sivils!! And the challenge is to use her new line "My Friend Birdie" :):):):):):):):):):):):):):) I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this line! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And for those that don't know.... I got me a promotion at work! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Sooooooooooo my old team threw me a little party yesterday and got me a 'going away' present! :):):):):):):):):):):):) And you know there's gonna be a story behind this right??? LOL!! I have ALWAYS wanted a griddle!!! Never have gotten one... just always wanted one! LOL! So, at my work a couple of months ago, they were raffling one of these at work...and even though I got about a GAZILLION tickets in the raffle....I didn't win it... {{insert boo!}} ... and so, I told my family and some friends that work that I WANTED one of these from ifs, ands or buts about it! LOL!! Soooooooo my old team that I just left this week, GOT IT FOR ME!!! YAYYYY! And here she is... my new griddle! :):):):):):):) {{insert YAY!}} :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

 And here is the yummy dinner I made with it!! YAY ME!!! (Ohhhhhhhhhhh the sandwich was for Daddy...he is anti-pancakes! LOL!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And let's see...before I head out... I swear, I'd never be good as a paparazzi!!! I was trying to get some photos like this one........

And instead....look who caught me! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And in case you missed it.... I had my 7 gypsies receipt holder showcased on the Blue Moon Blog on Monday.... COME check IT out HERE! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Here is a little sneaky! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Thanks sooooooooooo much for stopping by... I really appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  20. love your pages - and i love both of those photos of Brookie - don't give up on the paparazzi thing yet!!

  21. First the first layout is too cute!! Love it! Edward watch out! Secondly who doesn't like pancakes? I can get that someone doesn't like maple syrup. I'm not a big fan of it. plah! But I do like pancakes with other flavors of syrup or with even peanut butter? Its okay. Good stuff. Definetely eaten in moderation!! lol. My body balloons at the sight of a pancake unfortunately. I feel bigger just from this post. Love the layouts girlie!

  22. I just love the vampire layout!!! :) And, congrats on the promotion!

  23. First of all Brookie is so stinkin cute I can't stand it! I love the Edward layout so funny and yummy pancakes are my favorite thing to eat for breakfast. Chris doesn't like them either so I can't wait til Kendall is older and can talk daddy into pancakes for supper:)

  24. Congratulations on your promotion! Way to go.

    Love the teeth.

    So, are you thrilled that Steven Tyler is going to be the new judge on idol?

  25. LOL on the Edward layout! HeeHee...

  26. OMG...YAY for the promotion! That's awesome news. And, hooray for a griddle too, ha! I totally understand where you're coming from on that. I've always wanted one, but it's just one of those things you NEVER buy for yourself. I'm jealous :)

  27. Congrats! You know, come to think of it, I don't have a griddle either (but we make a lot of pancakes in our electric skillet!)
