Well our Memorial weekend was fun! We had a BBQ with Mike's family and it was such a nice day to sit outside. The men played horse shoes, the women gossiped and Drew drank everyone's soda when they weren't looking. If you left a cup unattended for even a second he was gulping it down.



I got some great pictures of Stacey, who USED to be oh so coordinated, doing cartwheels. Lets just say she's not as graceful as she used to be. I would post them but I'm pretty sure she'd kill me. Maybe I'll just put them in my revenge pile just in case she makes me mad sometime soon.

I got an email from Creating Keepsakes the other day approving my assignment layout for the October issue!! I was so nervous I actually sent them two layouts! I'm such a geek! Here's the one they didn't pick.

*Guess they liked it after all!*

I loved this layout but it was a pain in the ass! I do a lot of stitching on my pages but this was the most painful. My hands actually hurt after I was done. I had to stitch through cardstock, pictures, and one or two pieces of patterned paper. It was work! I'm kind of sad they didn't pick this one simply because I put so much time into it. Oh well, I love it and that's all that matters.

I'm so surprised that I'm actually even blogging this close to the beginning of the next month. Believe it or not I actually got a somewhat early start on my card kit club. Surprise, surprise!! I feel like a whole new woman. This is just so out of character for me. If I start eating healthier or doing laundry regularly, call a doctor quick!
I really like the cards I did this month. I think I'm starting to get the hang of card making...and maybe even enjoying it a little. I'm really surprised at how great the kit is doing. We signed up a lot of new people over the month of May. Well, I should probably get back to work on them!!

Hope you have a great week!

Are you kidding? 3 days of stitching and they didn't pick it? ~do I need to go up there and talk to somebody? do I need to lay the smack down, cause I'm not afraid. I'm just sayin~ I think it's a great page. I think you should do a whole layout about Stacy's caartwheels. That would be great!

I should have looked at those cartwheel pictures this morning. I can only imagine how much of an idiot I must have looked like! At least the gravity of my ass didn't pull me straight down to earth when I was upside down (like I assumed it would)!!

Hey girl! I can't imagine how your hands must have been aching after that one! But the results look great! Nice work!

Allison said...

Thank you guys!!

What's funny about the layout they picked over that one is it's one that I don't really like. I mean I like it, it just isn't what I wanted my HOF debut to be. I wanted something that people would say WOW over. I'm so afraid it's too plain!
