As promised, here are some photos from Brads promotion.. He did so great. He played in the band he got to play his solo again.. which made me happy. I love how he loves to play that solo... it's amazing! He also was recognized for NJHS and the Presidents Award for Academic Acheivement. He is such a great kid... I really am proud to be his mom

Here is a little of what Daddy's birthday has been so far. He and Mommy have spent all day just working together. We had to move some appliances for some clients so we borrowed a trailer from Papa and we set off for Sun City. Jade and Casey joined us to help and then we decided it was a great idea to take Daddy out for lunch! SO we took him to Famous Daves.. I think Daddy has been playing along pretty darn well considering I keep taking photos of him.. More to come.. we still have dinner, his "cake" which is actually cherry pie.. and PRESENTS!! whooo--Hoooooo..
OK more later... OH and HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY
I will be updating about Daddy's birthday all day long I am sure. Here is what we did for him so far... Let him sleep in and everyone was a quite as a mouse. We put up birtday signs all over the house... and we hid a few in places so he will find them all day long. We got his presents wrapped an waiting for everyone to be home. I am taking him to breakfast or lunch.. hey maybe both... and then we will see... More to come with photos of the birthday boy.. when he gets up!

The assignment.. rainbow... I love how it came out ! This photo of Jasmine has been hanging in my office for a long time. I have wanted to make a layout that was beautiful with it. Well this challenge came out just as I wanted it to... I personally really like it.. mostly because it says what Jasmine is.. beautiful... and it focuses on that.

So here is a little something I am working on today. It came out a lot better than I thought it would.. So NOW I am thinking I may make several more. This is a super easy block! I finished it sooo fast. I mean it is all chain stitched. SUPER DOUPER fast block too...I wonder if I can run up to the store and get a little more fabric so I can make more..Perhaps it will actually make itself into a quilt. When you line these up they are really pretty too!

OK sooo I don't really have many people reading, but this blog is more like a personal journal. SO My NSD (national Scrapbook Day) was great. I did an online crop at Club CK and won a $100 gift certificate to an online scrap store called TwoPeasInABucket. (The layout about visiting my Dad in TN) I also got a TON of layouts done. By about 5pm I was pooped, so I finished and did not get all the challenge sketches done, BUT I did get a lot done.. I also completed a few layouts that I submitted to CK for calls and a few cards for PC calls. I then made this layout about my day so I could enter it into even another contest.. so here it is.. NSD2010... a complete success!
On the layout above, I used a bunch of scraps from the layouts I created on NSD to make this fun frame for the photo

Ok this was a sketch at CK Blog-- but it was a two pager.. I don't really do two page layouts so I made it my own.. It was actually a very good sketch as a one pager too- I just scaled it down to one page.. anywhooo the reason I like this so much I think is because it has my dad on it.. so here it is!
