*Simple Pleasures* :):):):):):):):):):)

If you are here for the If Its Groovy//National No Housework Day BLOG  HOP... please see this post HERE :):):):):)


Hi all....

Wanted to stop in real quick and share a layout I made for the latest color challenge over at Crate Paper! :):):)  Here is their color scheme for the challenge....

And Emma's Shoppe is JUST PERFECT for this color palette! :)  I used the Emma's Shoppe I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :):):):)










Thanks for all the love on my new glasses from yesterdays post... I appreciate it!! When I went to work... I got a 50/50 reception on them...then I started getting called a not so pretty Hollywood actress (in my opinion that is....)... so not really a good day with my new glasses :(  Hard to wear them when all you have is BAD flashbacks of the kids on the playground calling you names like 'four-eyes'....sad that I am 39 years old, and I still have to put up with the bullies on the playground... :)


Today Brookie and I have a date with my friend Valerie and her daughter Audrey with "Princess On Ice!" CAN NOT WAIT!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


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

  1. Good Morning Julie Sweetie...
    I can't wait to see Brookie all dressed up for her Princess on Ice trip. I know she will look beautiful and have the MOST wonderful time ever. She was probably so excited she was up at the crack of dawn waiting to go.

    Take lots of photos. I can't wait to see. Oh and girl I have to tell you I love your glasses. You got 2 pair. WOW. Those must have set you back a ways. Glasses are so expensive. I love them both, and I simply adore your hair all curled. You look BEAUTIFUL sweetie, just beautiful. Thank you for sharing the moment with me.

    Many hugs to you sweetie. I miss you. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  7. I am really sorry any one could give you negative comments. It is a shame, like you said, we are adults and shouldn't have to worry about the "playground bullies". I truly love your glasses!!!

    I hope you and Brookie have fun today, can't wait to see pics. :-)

    Your LO is fabulous, really love that collection. :-)

  10. Who cares what people say.....you are beautiful my friend.....inside and out and there isn't a pair of glasses anywhere that can cover that kind of beauty up!! So poop on those people!!!! I wear glasses too.....cuz I am blind as a bat without them.....contacts are just too much hassle for me even tho I think I look better without glasses. I have no clue who they could compared you to....a former boss of mine used to say that Roseann Barr would play me in the movie version of my life....yeah, thanks for that.....lol. I LOVEEEEEE this layout!! I may attempt that one todeay as well.....I have a decent stgash of Crate built up now :)

  19. love love love this layout! the colors look fantastic!
    Im sorry about the bad reception on your new glasses at work. I got my first pair of glasses in second grade and to this day every time I put mine on I hear the kids calling me 4 eyes. I hate wearing my glasses, but my husband tells me he loves me in them and I wont even wear them for him except at night when I take my contacts out or when I am sick. Hugs my friend. I think you look fantastic in yours!
