*my family ... my life* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all.....

Thanks for the love yesterday on my Kodak lo and the card I made!! I really appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):) I wanted to share some more lo's with you today! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

First...I want to share this weeks Sketchy Thursdays!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeee this SKETCH!!! Soooooooooooo fun!! Here is our sketch! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I used the July kit on this lo!!! I loveeeeeee this kit! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And the next LO I want to share is for this weeks Scrapping the Music!! Its the first week of August... so it is movie theme song week again!! And this week we have... Let Go by Frou Frou (from Garden State)!!!!! Soooooooooooo FUN!!! :):):):):):):):):) I chose the word..."JUMP" from the song...and thought it was PERFECT for this photo of Brookie jumping in one of those inflatable blow up jumpy thingys!! (LOL! Don't you just loveeeeeeeee my technical word for that!?!?!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 

I used the August kit on this lo... I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee the fun colors! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And speaking of is MY FIRST day to post over on their blog!!! I am showing my "JUMP" lo on there!!! Soooooooooooo nervous!!! Soooooo if you have a moment... I would appreciate the support on their blog... RIGHT HERE! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 

And I got an award from Carin and Li-Bee-Ti!!! Thanks girls!!!! With this award I need to tell SEVEN things about ME that you may not know! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

1) Ok....people that haven't MET me IRL (and for those that have...or least have spoken with me on the phone...can back me up on this one!) always think that because of the way I 'talk' online, that I am going to have a HIGH pitched voice when they finally meet/talk to me IRL....wellllllllllllllllllllllllll... I don't!!! LOL!! I actually have a DEEP voice! LOL :):):):):):):):):) But...the peeps that have met me can again back me up on this....I really DO TALK like I 'talk' online....JUST in a DEEPER tone than peeps expect! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
2) I met Brian at work! :)  I swore and swore that I would never ever date anyone in the workplace...but there he was... and the rest as they say is history! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 
3) I have a CANDLE obsession (ALMOST as big as my scrappy obsession...if that tells you anything! LOL!)... my FAVE is Gold Canyon Candles Baking Collection candles...YUM-O! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
4) I am obsessed with re-arranging things in my home! A little OCD I know....but I get bored with everything looking the same way all the time...soooooo I am always moving stuff around! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
5) You all know that I am TWILIGHT obsessed....but did you know that I own the Edward and Bella dolls??? (Not Jacob...nope! LOL!) and I own their candy bars, Sweet-tarts, a Magnet puzzle, Burger King toys that were released for the Eclipse movie..AND EDWARD BAND-AIDS!!! ... Yes, you may call me Julie..The Twilight Obsessed One! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
6)  I do not like left overs! UGH... I really have to be desperate to eat any left overs!!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):) 
7)  Everyone thinks that I never sleep ( I do sleep!!) because I seem to always be on the computer... lol...not true... and everyone wonders how I can get sooooooo much done... welllllllllllllllllllllllllllll here are some of my secrets.... :)
* I usually make a lo in about 30 minutes! :)
* I only sleep about 4-5 hours a night! :)
* I have the type of brain that remembers ALMOST everything... I can read something, see something and it is pretty much there till the end of time! (True story...FAVE THINGS recently had a challenge about FAVE SHOES...I remembered that ohhhhhh about a year ago... my friend Kimmy had done a lo with her Converse kicks...and sooooooooo I sent her a message saying......"Ummmmmmmmmmm yeah... you need to enter our challenge with THAT LO!!"....  ...back me up here Kimmy...TRUE STORY, right??? I just remember things...LOL!) :):):):):):):):):):):)
 * I type about 60 words a minute (And that is with only using my ring finger on my right that is the only finger I have feeling in on that hand!)! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
* Even though I have been asked if my smileys are pre-programmed into my keyboard.....nope....they are all typed by me every time you see them..I have pretty much worn out those keys on EVERY keyboard I have ever used!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 
*And my last secret on how I can get so much lol lol...I am the queen of multi-tasking...I can be blog hopping, making a lo, watching a tv show and hear all the conversations that are going on in my family all at the same time! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Sooooooooooo there you have it... some of my little secrets about me :):):):):):):):):):):)

I want to pass this on to my fellow Sketchy Thursdays DT gals! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 

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