I'm finally posting! Yes, I know! I really just don't have a whole lot going on right now. Today is the last day of November 2006. Thanksgiving was very nice with tons of awesome food. It was very leisurely this year due to the children being pretty much self sufficient. I didn't have to chase them around and make sure they didn't break anything. That was really nice. I actually got to sit and chat.

I can hardly believe how fast this whole year has gone. Christmas is right around the corner! I've gotten quite a bit of shopping done, but still have a lot to do. Imagine that!

I just wanted to let everyone know about a couple of things going on in the scrapbooking world. First of all, Scrapbook Chalet is having a major contest starting tomorrow. The grand prize is a CRICUT!!! If you haven't seen one of these machines, you're living on another planet - LOL! It is just awesome! So, to win...ya gotta play! Checkout for more details.

Secondly, ScrapNCircle is winding down their Surviving the Circle competition with just three players left. My "spunky" layout is for this week's challenge - play along. The site is having a weekend crop starting December 15th and running until the 17th. So, be sure to stop by and join us. It's always a lot of fun and the challenges are great!

Lastly, The Memory Safe is just finishing the final touches on the premier kit featuring Fancy Pants since the new owner, Amy Norman, took over along with one of her friends. The site's first contest has also been going on and should be wrapping up soon. Not sure exactly what's in store after that, but Amy's pretty creative, so you'll have to check it out!

I'll be going to play co-ed volleyball tonight for a double-header. It's always good for some calorie burning. And, since I eat wayyyyy too much, that's a good thing!

Ear Stapling Update - I found that this particular weight loss method was unsuccessful for me. So, I had DH remove them. Needless to say, he didn't operate the easy tool properly the first time, so I just about hit the roof, but I survived. The last three he took out I could barely feel. It's really nice to be able to scrub my ears again.

Anyway, there's my quick update. Hope all is well with all of you!

See ya!

Log blog! Well, I must say that time is flying! I CAN NOT believe that it is already the middle of November and the holidays are upon us. I'm really looking forward to them and actually have a lot of shopping done.

First on my list is the Grand Opening of Scrapbook Chalet . They have a brand new website, new kits and awesome members! It's a great place to hang out. So, if you get a chance, pop on over and checkout all of the great contests/challenges we have going on. The Design Team is currently working on the November kits and should have some layouts up very soon.

I've been hard at work creating new layouts to use up some of my stash. It's been liberating to use a lot of my "old" stuff. I do, however, have other layouts with newer lines, because we all know it's so darned hard not to purchase the yummy new stuff ;)

I had posted a sketch challenge on ScrapNCircle for their Surviving the Circle contest and the two page layout titled, "Tree Fan," is what I created using that sketch.

I also posted a sketch challenge over at Scrapbook Chalet with a deadline of tomorrow. That layout is titled "Ahhh...finally gifts." So, if you happen to see this and can whip out a layout, be sure and post it under the "Sketches" forum and we'll be voting on who received the RAK that I'll send.

Thanks for stopping by!

I had an awesome weekend of scrapping! I was absolutely thrilled to go to a 24 hours crop complete with great food, great friends and all the scrapping I could handle! It was great! I completed 8 layouts, along with helping a friend of mine do some of her layouts. I can't wait until next year!

I scrapped this AM to complete a Scraplift Challenge over at ScrapNCirlce. I love how it turned out. It really does look a lot better in person.

I have plans to go to my Stampin' Up Stamp Club tomorrow night, as well as visit the LSS and scrap at my friend, Lori's house. It will be a great day I'm sure.
