Tony, Tim and Tired!!!

I have had a very busy (beyond busy!) week. At work it was the end of month/end of the quarter slam. The sales reps have projects that need to be completed, paperwork that needs to be faxed in etc. Now, let me just say they have "3 monthes!" to do this....but it always ends up being completed during the LAST week of the quarter. Anyways, I was quite prepared this time. I had a large ice coffee everday and I had my 12 pack of Mountain Dew energy soda for the rest of the day. These definately were a big help. I was in the zone! I was working 6-6:30 am til 5:30 at night. It was crazy. I was tired, but I survived!! At night I was working on my DT projects for Paper Jam Studio and my circle journal that I am doing with the Studio Calico gals. Late nights, early morings and LOTS of caffeine!!!

So I made it through the week, but I also had quite a weekend planned. Saturday I headed up to Loudon, NH for Nascar weekend. Saturday was the Busch race and I am so proud to say, My man Tony Stewart was the winner. Oh yah, he ROCKS!!!

Though I was not there on Sunday for the big race. I did get to see my 2 favorite guys practice. First, here is Tony:

And Dale jr :

Although it was gray and overcast all day, it was quite warm and did not rain til later! It was a bummer for me to miss the race on Sunday. I saw that Tony (should have won and was very disappointed), but that he won instead:

This was the 1st time in many years that I missed the Sunday June\July Loudon race, but there was a good reason. I got to see HIM:

Oh yah...life is good! My friend Debbie and I took a road trip to Hyannis, MA to a store called 'Colorful Creations' to take a class with the AMAZINGLY FUN Tim Holtz . We made a really COOL Grungeboard book:

Tim was lots of FUN and very animated:

This was Debbies first class with Tim and my third. WOW! She did not know what to expect and was very pleased! Here we are:

And here is Tim being Tim. Ta-da....

It was a CRAZY week and now I rest... :-)

I'm exhausted just reading this post! I can't believe how much you were able to jam in one week, in one day! Good grief! My hubby would be jealous of the nascar.... and I'm jealous of the Tim class! It would be so fun to take a class from him!
