Well hey and howdy! This new blogger is pretty easy to use. lovin it!
oh...and the link for the photobooks below didn't work...so here is a new one...click here to go to site. And the sale is till the 16th. phew.
Hope everyone is great today. It is so so so cold here today. The gutters and my sodas outside were frozen! brrr to the bone baby.
The boys are at my aunt's having a blast. I miss them like crazy, but it was a good thing they were gone. I had a stomach thing going on yesterday. My mom had it last week and she passed it along, isn't she sweet? So...I didn't get to do all I wanted, wahhhh. I didn't make it to my fave thrift store nor did I get to go out with my girlfriends...didn't want to use a public toilet (dinner and movies) constantly kwim?
But...I stayed all bundled up at home. Got two layouts done. Got to watch some of my tivo shows and read a couple magazines. I hate hate hate sleeping in a house by myself...I get scared (yesss....I am a wusssss. Must be all the crime shows and books I read,lol) and I miss my family. It was past 1a before I fell asleep.
Got up and put together a prize for my last double trouble sketch challenge at Digital Freebies. I think I will have to hold a monthly sketch challenge on the blog...I will miss my chickies over there.
Here is the prize...a compilation of some of my must haves for digiscrapping.
Do you want to play in the challenge? Well ok then...if you missed the first sketch...I will give you a second chance. Here it is...and I also have a freebie template for you to use. Now...for the first half of the prize...use the sketch and or template to do a layout. Post a link to it in the comment section here and include your email addy so I can send you the first part of the prize.

Now...on to my layouts:
This one is using Audra Little's (my buddy from raks and amy's CT. she just told me I get to work with her kits...so funnnn) Grandma's Attic kit available at DigiScrapShak.com It is a pic of Brandon and his family. Going to ask his mom the year and the occassion and then update the journaling.
This one is my first CT assignment for Valerie Foster's CT! I used her Love Buzz kit...so fun! love it. and she has a freebie for it on her site right now. Go here and register in the forums. Then go to the product announcements for her gift. Make sure to say thanks too...tell her tracy sent you to the site, lol, ;)
After getting the prize put together and uploaded, I went through lots of galleries to leave some love. I like to go back like a week or so and try to pick layouts that don't have a lot of comments. Also trying to get to all the people that do my challenges.
Now to shower (yup...almost 3p and still in jammies,lol) and straighten up...Brandon will be home this evening. We can cuddle and watch a movie or play some scrabble...uninterrupted. then go get my babies in the morning..she wants to keep them one more night...after I stop by the Goodwill by my aunt's. Hers is freakin awesome up there...way better than ours.
love and hugs to everyone!!!
