Missing posts

It appears that a few of my recent posts have gone missing. I hope that this post will help pop them out again. Very strange.

2 posts in 1 day

So I decided to break blog tradition and just share some random non-scrapping thoughts that I've been thinking about lately:
  1. Obama vs. Clinton is a tough decision....but exciting and interesting.
  2. My beloved Yankees had a good streak but are still 7 1/2 games behind Boston.
  3. The difference between passing judgement and having an opinion is a very fine line.
  4. I have no interest in Lindsay Lohan or the Tour De France.
  5. I seriouly need a new job.
  6. I miss Wendy.
  7. Cherry Coke Zero is now my favorite soda.
  8. I wish I had a british accent!
  9. It's time for a new car but I don't know what to get.
  10. My new front doors that we ordered in March are still not installed and I am getting very frustrated.

My fastest Layout ever

Well maybe not ever, but it's close. I got this Imaginise rub-on several weeks ago and just loved the colors in it. It's been sitting on my desk ever since I got it. Just seems like something else always gets in the way. Last night I decided it was time to make a layout with it, but I only had 30 minutes to scrap. In that 30 minutes I selected and printed the photo, created the layout, and scanned the image. If that is not my record it's pretty close to it.

This one's for my mom

My poor mom called me because she had no idea how to use these large Technique Tuesday chipboard shapes. Since I had the same set I made this quick page to give her an idea of what to do. I just love that my mom scrapbooks - without her phone call I probably would have just goofed off in my room and got nothing done. So she is quite motivational. Her next request is to see something using the doodlebug glitter chipboard.

I'm sort bummed that I am not in Chicago right now drooling over all the new goodies....I am so grateful to lifetime moments for having such a complete sneak peek forum for us to get a look at what's to come. The better news for me is that I have made my reservations for Memory Trends this September. DH is going to go with me and we are going to see the Circ Beatles show at the Mirage. So even if the MT show is slow I'll still have a good time in Vegas.

Other than that not much is going on with me. I have a friend from work coming over again this weekend for a little scrapping fun (she is new to scrapbooking but seems like it so far).

Victoria Beckham - Ameirca gone mad!!!

So I will admit to enjoying my share of celebrity gossip, but have never seen what the obsession about Paris, Brittney, and Linsday was all about. Now all of a sudden Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) seems to be getting the same attention. America is just going crazy over the Beckhams move to the US. I have to say I was not the least bit interested in what this family was up to until the other night when they had a 1 hours special program about her house hunting and move to the US.

There was absolutely nothing on TV that night so while I was scrapping I had this show on in the background. Before long I had totally stopped scrapping and was all involved in this show. Much much to my surprise this woman can across and funny and down-to-earth - albeit a bit high maintenance. She seemed to really love her husband and kids, have a great sense of humor (especially when in came to herself), and was friendly to those she interacted with. Some of her facial expressions were just priceless... and her comment about Brittney "running around without her nickers on" had me rolling.

I don't have any plans to watch the series but this show was actually quite entertaining. It just goes to show you that first impressions aren't always right.

Oh and her husband has one amazing body.... I imagine that soccer is going to be a very popular sport when he starts playing.

No more excuses, no more reasons, no more apologies - it's just a new norm that I blog once a month. I usually don't post unless I have time to check on all my favorite bloggers, and lately that hasn't been much and I don't expect it to change anytime soon. So I am OK with the new norm being a monthly update.

But with that said we are well into July and I'm still getting back into the swing of work after a fantastic 5 day break over the 4th.

Thanks to the wonderful and talented Diane Grimshaw I have been listening to Christmas Music and scrapping my brains out in Red, Green, and Gold. I had so much fun working on this latest assignment which should be hitting the newstands in September.

Here is a page I did based on a theme of "inspired by fashion"... it was really fun - although I am not a huge fan of being in front of the camera.
