Amazingly, I found some time to sit down and make a scrappy page…and I can even give credit to everyone who made what I used to make it!…lol well, that’s because I only used one kit.

So obviously my sister is getting married…and soon, too! I will be writing about the bridal shower and sweatshops leading up to that very soon…and yeah, that is her ring…isn’t it pretty? She really likes the vintage look and her fiancé, Andy, had it made so it’s also one of a kind! It really suits her…he did done good! I don’t know what kind of wedding band she will have to go with it. I’ll have to ask her!
Today is the day of the annual Woodward Dream Cruise here in Michigan. I didn’t go at all this year because it was so.damn.hot. today and yesterday! It was like 90 degrees with humidity…no thank you. I’m kind of over it anyways. I mean, I grew up around old cars because my dad’s always had one (or two!) and I’ve been to a number of car shows and I don’t mind walk around looking at cars, but I don’t like the heat because I’m a sweaty beast and there are millions of people there! Millions…I kid you not!
Usually the hubbs and I will go to our church on Friday night. They have Chicken Shack there selling chicken dinners and music in a huge tent. The music is usually the Polish Muslims, which are a cool Weird Al type of band. Then when we’re done eating dinner and listening to the music a bit, we go sit out close to the road to inhale exhaust fumes and watch the old cars “cruise” down Woodward. Basically it’s 1 or 2 old cars and then regular cars who either don’t pay attention to what weekend it is and are now stuck driving on Woodward, or they want to be in the mess of it all. And…it’s basically a parking lot or a lot of drive 20 ft and then stop for a light.
Here are some pictures from 2007…I don’t remember if we went last year, maybe we didn’t…and since I didn’t go this year, I don’t have any from 09! But it’s pretty much the same!
It’s an ok time. A lot of people go and enjoy it. If it wasn’t so blazing hot yesterday and today, I probably would have went…but it WAS so stinkin hot. My husband didn’t even try to pop down there today, which is probably would have done if it wasn’t so dern hot.
And yes, I am whining about the heat! I cannot stand it!! I am SOOOO ready for fall. Ahhh wonderful Autumn…please hurry your seasonal butt up and get here already!
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop??
Sharing is fun!
I am so proud of myself for keeping up with this project. I know it’s only week one, but it’s an acomplishment!
Here’s week one:
I had some time waiting for laundry to finish…

He got it at Office Depot and he really went shopping for it with my list of “needs”. We bought one at Target last night and I put it together and really didn’t like it…so we returned it and he went on the hunt for the perfect chair…and he found it too!! It’s really lovely…butt heaven! lol
I finished New Moon and will start Eclipse on Monday. I could easily start it today, but I can’t do anything else while I listen at home so I need to wait if I want to get things done LOL Funny, I have little problem listening at work…but my job is repetitious and I could do it in my sleep.
I listened a little last night and ended up falling asleep with it on…I woke up at like 3am and turned it off. Then I had to turn it back to when I remembered it last and lost like a whole hour. It’s ok though, I needed to go back to get the gist of the story.
I have about 5 gazillion scrappy kits to sort through and move to their proper home on my external drive. I’ve been putting it off because it’s time consuming and annoying lol But in a minute I’ll have to start unzipping them elsewhere!! LOL
I finally go around to making a scrappy page with some of the pictures from my sister’s wedding earlier this month.
*will add later*
This page took me a long time…I was so undecided as to what to put on there. My sister is not traditional in the least and as you can see, neither was the wedding! It was a good time though and they are really happy and I’m happy for them both!
The journaling was part of their vows. I will make other pages using other parts of their vows as well as more/different pictures. I have a few pages in mind.
Anyways…it took me WAY too long to make the page, way too long to get photoshop to cooperate and let me shrink the jpg and I’m about to go watch a moovie with the hubs. Hopefully we can agree on something…we never do with movies though! LOL

These templates are a freebie and they are by Lori. You can find them on her blog.
What an AWESOME idea! I know what everyone is going to get from my hubby and I this christmas. Especially his mom and mine, and my BIL in Australia, oooh and my sister too!
The good thing is that you can dress them up, put little “icons” like a heart for valentine’s day, a cake for birthdays, etc. How cool is that? and original too! Who doesn’t love a little personalized gift like that.
And it will cost probably less than 10.00 a piece! That will be at least 4 gifts out of the way. I’m sure as soon as people see them, more will want them too!
Here’s one I did for October, 2009 just to show an example.
I know those credits aren’t great…sorry. I was just searching for bday stuff through my files, so they came from where I said, but I don’t know who made them. I’ll go back and correct it later.
Anyways…that’s my example, We have 3 birthdays in October and actually my wedding anniversary is in Oct too on the 28th, which is also my hubby’s bday…so I usually put a cake or something. I should make it all about my anniversary though! LOL We’ve been married for 6 years…geez, and it will be 7 this year! Wow…I say wow because we had some really rough patches in the beginning. But things are great now.
So those little calendars will be presents this year. I’ll have them printed at Costco and then get a frame. It will be great! I just KNOW they will love them!
I need to leave Lori a comment on her blog if I haven’t already.
She also has some other great templates. I’m really a template girl. I’m so new to digi with Photoshop and the templates really help me. I definitely jumped right in though!
I’m still doing wedding things. I’m frantically printing the programs and then Friday, which is also my sister’s birthday, we’re going to dinner for her and then we are going back into the sweat shop to fold these programs and then tie little tubes of wedding bubbles on them. Fun stuff. lol
My last wedding task is to make “Robusto” lol…basically it’s noodle salad. But I call it “Robusto!” lol I either need to make it Friday morning before we go up there or cut up the veggies and then make the noodlers there. Not sure which one I’m going to do. And I’m not sure how much I need to make. Enough for 150 or so people. I will be busy!!
