5. A Book That Made Me Cry - I Love You Always (children's book)
6. A Book I Wish Had Been Written - historical novel on my family

I scrapped my heart out......

but this is the only one I can post. The rest will go to be considered for publication. Check it out and tell me what you think of this handsome guy. I don't usually use Jolees or any stickers, but who can resist these cute guys?! LOL

First five comments I'll send a "Honk If You Scrapbook" window sign!

Life is too busy at work so I'll have to update at a later time.

Updating a Busy Life

Well, it must not be too busy if I'm here updating my blog! LOL

Creating Keepsakes Convention was a blast! I was sort of dreading it as I get very competitive when it comes to my layouts. But somehow I was given great peace and just looked forward to the day with Angie and meeting the area PEAS (message board). It was fun to be without children and to laugh and enjoy myself.

I met Sudie, Brandi, Sara (BiG winner of Scrapworks), Court, Lisa, and another Lisa, Missy, and the list goes on and on and on ................................ See the pictures. That's us, tired but having a ton of fun. Everyone was generous in donating RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness). And no one asked anyone to do this. We just did and it was great!

(Sara winning Scapworks First Place in Charlotte. It's blurry because I was fighting the crowds!)

I was to meet Tracy White but she had to cancel and I was very disappointed. Although the teacher we had was very good the only reason I took the class was to meet…

10 Surprises in My LiFe....Blog Challenge

Wow, I don't know that I've had 10 surprises, but lest try.

1. When I grew up I did not become a lawyer. But I like my job and I'm able to help other also through the Financial Aid Office and Retention Services.

2. My mother got smart! Go figure this one out! LOL

3. People lie and don't care. Sad surprise to say the least.

4. My group I took to Europe gave me a Russian Wool hand-knitted sweater and I love it!

5. I was surprised when my brand new step-granddaughter walked in on me in the bathroom!

6. When the minister forgot to tell my son at his wedding that "you may now kiss the bride!" Too funny.

7. My mother and father surprised me by coming from Florida, when dad was so very ill, to attend my Graduation from Grad school.

8. When my husband actually bought me a diggy camera for my birthday!

9. When I won the SA contest and they told me I was to be published in their magazine.

10. And the BigGesT one for me: My husband planned an anniversary trip to …

So much Going On!

Me in Straight Hair...I haven't had that for over 10 years. I was very sick for a few years where I lost a lot of hair. When it came back, it came back curley!!! The hair dresser had a field day and straighten my hair. I enjoyed it so much. Wish it would have stayed!

We are in the middle of registration at USC, so we are very busy. Updating a blog is not a priority so I've been neglectful. So Sorry!

I’m going to be published. I won the Scrapbook Answers "Where Were You When...." contest. It will be in the October issue. When I got the initial email I screamed so very loud that the people on the next floor wondered what was going on. Telling my family was the second highlight and so much fun. I could hardly wait for permission to post it on PEAS. OMG, this has been so much fun. BUT I want to be picked up for a 'call' or as a "designer!" Does that make sense? I know this is great beyond words...but there is something about the email that says you …
