4th of July Treats

So, the other day, I came across this blog that was giving away the most AMAZING 4th of July kit. It is AWESOME!!! So, I kind of hinted that I would LOVE to play with their elements, and guess what? They said YES!!! Yipeeeeeee!

So, you all get to have the FUN WordArt that I made with their AMAZING kit! And, you get their kit too! What could be better :) Amberlee of SuperMom Scrappin and Deb of MajorTiggerScraps and I are hosting these WordArts for you, so you'll have to go to each of our blogs to get them. One from each site. Be sure to leave them some love when you're there :)


So, here the first one - Let me just say, I LOVE patriotic stuff. And there were a TON of really great quotes out there to work with. See that awesome heart? That's the heart that got this little collab going - lol. I told you that it ROCKED!!! So, click HERE to go to Deb's site and get the first WordArt.

All Man

Yeah! It's Friday :) Are you all ready for the weekend? Do you have any plans? Me, can I just stay home and design? hehehe. I know that my hubby is supposed to have the day off on Saturday, so we'll see if we decide to do anything spur of the moment. He's really a spur of the moment kind of guy :) Makes for a fun and exciting life, let me tell ya :)

This WordArt request is for Maria, and I thought it was fitting, since yesterday we had "girl" WordArt that today we'd have boy WordArt! I thought this would be cute on layouts with little boys, doing big boy things! I know I have a TON of pics I could use it on!

Lucky Me

Wow, I meant to spend the whole day designing, but only got about 1/2 a day in :) I managed to get a WordArt pack done (Teen Attitude), and a collab with Ziggle Design (b-day themed). I didn't even start on your freebie until 11:30pm. So tired!!! Need sleep. I bet I have photoshop nightmares tonight! (remember I write these the night before - ha!)

This WordArt request is from Kerri - I liked that movie (but I think I liked the new one better - have you seen it - annie has straight hair :) Well, this WordArt is so long, that it gave me troubles :) Remember ladies, the shorter the quote, the better (but not too short - it's hard to make a wordart with just one or two words - lol!)

Just had to share a pic with you. We went to Wal-mart yesterday and got our family pics taken. We got the $5.00 package special of the group, and then bought the CD with all the images and the copyright to it. I figured I'd use it more than getting prints made. Plus, I could scrap 'em, and change backgrounds, and ADD WORDART! LOL, and whatnot, then send it back to Wal-mart photo center, and print it there. Or to my mom's photo center in Florence, Oregon. Or to my mother-in-law's photo center in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Yeah for Wal-Mart!!!

And yes, I know I have a big head, but it's not polite to stare :) hehehe

I normally don't like the blue background, but this one turned out pretty good!

My kids are SO CUTE!!!! Not that I'm biased, or anything :)

Yep, it's Wednesday again! That means it's time to head on over to the Orchard to pick up this weeks challenge WordArt! Just complete a layout using this WordArt, and if I like yours the best, you'll win on of my COOL WordArt packs! So what are you waiting for :) LOL!

This WordArt request is from Lori :)

AND, don't forget, you have to be REGISTERED at Scraporchard in order to download this WONDERFUL wordart :) lol!

I Learn

WOW, what a great Monday we had! First off, my oldest son (10) Jacob and I went for a little exercise walk around the block. It was about 30 mintues, and 2 miles. I felt good, and I think he was very proud of his efforts.

At 11:45, we walked to the library (only about a 3 minute drive) for the cities "free lunch" program. The kids were SO excited, and had a great time :) We checked out a few books, signed up for the summer reading program, and headed home.

At 2:00, we walked back to the library to see a Magic Show. It was AWESOME! Tom Foolery was the guys name (ha!) and he was a blast! Kids really liked the show.

Then, at 5:15, we headed for Chillicothe, where we saw the Techumseh! Outdoor Drama Performance. WOW! It was amazing. They needed volunteers to come and wash down the seats and be ushers, and they'd give you free admission. So, the kids and I were there at 6pm, washing down the seats. The kids really got into it, and had a good time (well, I could tell that Jacob, 10, was thinking that there was better things he could think of doing - lol!).

My hubby was a bit late in getting there (about 7:00), and joined us as the kids were eating a popcicle in the Food Area after the cleaning was done. He'd been a few weeks previous, and helped out then also. The show started at 8:00, and was FABULOUS!!! We really enjoyed it.

The set was magnificent - they even had a large pond that they used. Horses, guns, cannons, canoes, fire - I was blown away! I'd recommend a trip to anyone coming this direction :) It would be well worth your time :)

We didn't even get home until about 11 pm (yeah, the kids said that they LOVED the show, but asked if next time we could have it start a little earlier, cause they were tired - lol!) So, it's midnight (or past!) as I'm finishing up this post. You all should be lucky that I LIKE YOU so much. I'm gonna be sleepy tomorrow :)

This WordArt request is from Kait. What a great quote it is. LOVE Ben Franklin - we were watching the musical 1776 the other day with the kids (have you seen it?), and we've been singing "Sit Down John, Somebody Open Up A Window" ever since! So funny :) The kids really liked it, and we had a great time watching it :)

Anyway, got a little off track there - lol! Click on the image below to go to my 4shared account and download the png file, and leave some love if you like my work :) Thanks girls!!!

Not Today

This WordArt request is from Sivan. OK, really, how many of us feel like this at least ONCE A WEEK! Ha! Is it only ME? Hehehe, unfortunately, as a mom to 5 kids, this isn't an option most of the time :) Good ole Dr. Seuss always have a nice quote for us!!!

Choose Family

What a busy Saturday we had! We were gone from noon to nine! So much for my day of designing. But, I did manage to design from 10-midnight! We had a fun day as a family, shopping, putting winter clothes in the storage shed, helping a friend clean out his horse stable, and driving around. Nothing too important, except some good old quality family time!

This WordArt request is from Angela - What a great saying! I like it :) I'm really glad that I have the extend family that I have, even if they're all a bit weird. Ha! LOL! If you really knew me, you laugh! I'm the weirdest of the bunch :)
