Hi all....it looks like blogger and I are friends again...sooooo I am back with lots to share! :):):):):):) The other day...the kids and I had a day at the park...and since it is almost the end of March...I wanted to share my monthly photo with me and the kids...for those of U new to my blog, I do this once a month in keeping the tradition that my dear friend and fellow Scrapping the Music DT member Aleida Franklin started on her blog, before she tragically lost her life a little over a year ago...she had a beautiful outlook on life, as she said, it doesn't matter what we look like, no makeup, hair a mess...our kids see "mama" and sooooooo every month she took photos with her kids and I am keeping that tradition alive on my blog! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And I can FINALLY share the photos of the AMAZING gifts we got from my dear friend Sharmaine!! Thanks Sharmaine....U will see in the photos...that lol...we had a little fun with the 'dorothy' mask! LOL! Love U girl...thanks for the presents! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
And now for some lo's!!! :):):):):):):) The first one is for the latest challenge at Scrapping the Music!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Our latest song is "Fireflies"...I love love love love love this song!!! And I chose the lyric "dance" and I used Kiki Arts goodies on this lo! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next I want to share a lo I made for the challenge that went live today on  
This time we want to know YOUR FAVE TV SHOW!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
My fave tv show is Law & Order, and the saying in my house is, "there's always a Law
 and Order on in Julie's world!" lol! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
And that sound at the beginning of the show...I don't know exactly
how to spell it...lol...so I guessed that it is.."Ba Bum" lol lol lol :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And the last lo I want to share is for a  sketch challenge 
we have going on right now at  
Nikki Sivils's blog! :):):):):):):)
