scrappy time!

I am on a roll! I knocked out 3 layouts, 2 cards and an altered project with the Feb. CMK kit (pics to come in a few days). I created my card for the Di Hickman Jan. #4 sketch. (can you tell I have been listening to High School Musical? heehee. As soon as I saw this paper that song came into my pea brain and it's been "stuck" there since). I completed my last Jan. project for Heart In Hand Scraps using one of Chrys' gorgeous class projects (which I have been itching to do and I love how it turned out). And I have even completed 2 of the challenges over at Scrap-Diner for the Challenge Blast-a-Thon they are hosting from the 18th-27th. I still have some catching up to do to be current on the challenges, but I wanted to get as many done as I could. I just love it when I am on a great scrappy groove. I sure hope my mojo sticks around.

I splurged a little today and bought a MM Carousel from Scrap-Diner. I have been wanting one and I decided today was the day to take the plunge. I also picked up a few other things... just a few... ;) some Ggrungeboard (which I think is very cool, and I hope I am not intimidated by it) and some Doodlebug Sugar Coated cs and one of the kits. It's going to be a happy mail day sometime next week. *yay* And what was even better is that Sher called (the owner of Scrap-Diner) and we had a wonderful conversation. She's so fun and nice and I am thankful that I stumbled upon her site. If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. It's got a great family feel. The gallery is fabulous, the boards are friendly, the store has plenty of great stuff, and the customer service rocks!

Other than that, today was pretty laid back. Skye and Ashlyn were both home sick and even laying in their beds they found plenty to argue about. *roll eyes* I just don't know where they think of all the little things to irritate each other with. At least when they get along they get along well. Those are good days, even though they are few and far between. Skye will go back to school tomorrow and Ashlyn will be home with me again since she's got a 102.9' temp. Hopefully it will be down tomorrow and not spike like it usually does.

This week is half over already. It sure is going by quickly. :) Have a good one!
