Fridays Challenge
Today I want you to create a page telling us about your favorite flower. You have to understand I love all flowers and at this time I would love to have a bouquet of beautiful sunflower. So go out and pick or buy yourself a bunch of flowers, you "NEED" them and deserve them. It will only be a few dollars. Put them in your scraping space and enjoy. Create a page with or with out a picture. Have a wonderful Friday!

What inspires you? What jars your creative juices flowing? As many of you know when I need to create sometimes nothing will help me be creative and if I try to force it, well then it is a disaster. I end up not using what I force. So my new way to become inspired is "Blogs". I like to check out all the blogs , see what others are creating and then what I come up with seems to be justified. I sometimes like the simple page with minimal embellishment, it really depends on the picture. But most of the time I love to add and add some more embellishments. Load that page down so it tells the story and I don't have to Journal. I am trying to force alittle more comments on my pages but if I work it right all I have to do is add embellishments. Have a good Thursday Friends!!

Where would you like to go on Vacation?
Happy Tuesday! This is first day of my work week , I am coming off my weekend. The shop is closed on Sunday and Mondays. So I do not want to get up and get going this morning. There is not alot I will need to do when I get there but, I still have to be there. I have a new booth moving in today and I am looking forward to seeing her treasures.
Well, as Vacation time approaches, we are at a dilemma on where we want to go. Last year , we went to Atlanta for a one day trip. So not much of a vacation, actually it has been two years since we had a real vacation. I want to go away for a month but Hubby says I can only have 9 days.

So where would you go? I love the beach but "Hubby" will go but prefers the Mountains. We have so done that. But seeing the ocean is different. Always changing and I love the smell,sound and feel of the beach. I would live there if it was possible. I would love to have the ocean as a view from my studio. And if I wanted to go out for a stroll on the beach or if I needed shells for a project, they would be there. All at my finger tips. Back to reality.....

Anyway, I am trying to come up with somewhere else that we both could enjoy. Any Suggestions? It seems so foolish to go on a road trip with gas as high as it is but I think we deserve a get away. We both have worked hard this year and need this. And I need new vacation picture to scrap. Have a nice day.

Friday Challenge

Interview- ask someone questions and write it down. My version is Malik at 8. I found out the was afraid of heights, car wrecks and spiders.

He wants to visit Japan, and he is most proud of the military fighting to protect the whole world, he wants to be a undercover policeman and he is worried about dying. On a good note he told me he had a girlfriend and she has long hair. You won't know until you ask. Interview your husband and see if you are on the same planet. I learned alot about hubby. Surprising things too. Try it. You may be pleasantly surprised.

I love coming up with a new purpose for old items. I have had this for years. And was afraid of putting it out in the store, afraid a child would stab his sibling. So it was on my desk,

Bang, it came to me. What do you think?

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend, Mother's Day and all. I decided to keep the grandsons and ask my mother and mother in law over to grill . Along with them was a clan of 13 others. I did not stress, I played with the boys all mornin g. I had prepared before hand, Hubby grilled and I had even prepared the homemade Strawberry ice cream before hand. Speaking of Berries, I do believe we are into our last week of the picking. I do know they will not pick for you as of today. There is just not enough to pay to have them picked. It is sad but we have had such bad luck with the weather this year that they are just going to break even this year. The un-seasonable cool weather has been great but not for the farmers. Well, class tonight. I am looking forward to seeing all my buddies. And catching up. Have a wonderful week my friends.

I am a silly ,starstruck, caught in the hipe, girl.
Well, we had celebrities in Locust Fork yesterday. Yes, the sexist fat boys, the silver tongued ones, Shakespeare worst nightmare. The dueo of Rick and Bubba. Promoting their book- the expert guide of god country and anything else they could think of. Number one I enjoy them because they make me laugh, Number 2, they are Christians and they show it. Number 3, I have listened to them sooo long that they seem like family. Yes, I was there, Yes I bought a book, Yes I had all 4 sign it, and Yes I forgot my camera. AmI not a gobber? But as I walked up a friend was there and took picture of us and promised me some. We were standing outside talking and Rick and Bubba drove up walked up to us and just started talking, as they do best. I was star struck. My brother is not a fan, and kids me about being one. So before I went to see them I called him, left a message that said, I know you are standing in line waiting to see R&B, so save me a place in line , I will be right there.
Have a good Saturday!

Friday's Challenge-This weeks challenge will fit in with my class on Monday night. The title will be "U in ME". My page will be me and Mom, but you could do this layout about you and your child and title it "Me in You". Think about it. Come up with your own twist. We spend time with anyone and take on each other traits . As I grow older I see my mom in me. And I want to scrap this.
shameless plug---------------Class at Michael's Trussville - Monday night- 6 to 8.

I love junk, I can't even throw out trash. I might use it on a page. Even empty packages become embellishment for a page. Bidding on a box of junk has a whole new meaning to me. What kind of goodies will be in the bottom, where most people will toss out. I find something to use on a layout. I will have to post one soon. Scrapbooked all day, got 7 pages done. Yeah!!! I have really enjoyed this rainy day.

I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. – Oprah Winfrey
Did you ever have a May Day celebration. When I was in 1st grade we had a May Day celebration at school. We had a May Pole and we had made flower rings to wear on our heads. We danced around the pole with it bright color ribbons. As I remember, it was so beautiful. I think there were lots of flowers and alot of color. And of course carnival type games and food for everyone to enjoy. Odd, I have not thought of this in years. Why do we not celebrate this day any more? And why did we celebrate it then?
