What would I do on a perfect day? I made a list and a sketch and I knew the perfect picture. Of course, I had to scrap it! I took this picture of myself at a Nascar race last Summer. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and I was really happy just to be there. I didn't want to forget the moment. So...I have had this picture for a while and have been waiting for the 'perfect' time to use it. Here is the LO I came up with:
This was my original sketch. I changed it up a bit, but I was quite pleased with the result.

Also wanted to share some Happy Mail I recieved on Saturday. Somehow I was missed on a free add on gift with purchase for May, but it was caught by the amazing ladies at Studio Calico . They contacted me and sent it right out. Did I mention how much I LOVE it there. We all take care of each other. It is a great online community. You should check it out! Check out my FREE goodies! YUM!!!
Hope you are all having a great weekend! Back to scrappin' and I will be busy watching the Coca Cola 600 in Charlotte tonight. Go Tony!! Go JR!!

Speaking of (eye) candy...the finale ROCKED!! Loved when David sang "Sharp Dressed Man" with ZZ Top. LOVED when the guys sang with Bryan Adams. LOVED when they sang with George Michael. It was an 80's fest and I loved it! Last night the top 10 were all on Larry King. It was kind of cool seeing them together and just talking, away from the idol show. I probably will not see the idol tour, but just wait to see David Cook when he is touring. I got to see Chris Daughtry on his tour last year and he was AMAZING!!!
My son Bryant said to me "Mom, you are always singing. You sing in the car. You sing along with the tv. You know every song. You are always singing.." What can I say. I LOVE music. I am not a great singer. Music just makes me feel good. He was satisfied with that answer. Phew!!! :-)
Anyways, last night we went to a Boston Bruins Alumni game against the NH State Troopers. It was a lot of FUN! The Bruins (to put it nicely) kicked the troopers butts!! 16-8! They were playing with them. They were having a good time. It was so funny to watch. Here is a cute picture I took of Steve and Bryant at the game. I already have a couple of sketch ideas I want to try out when I scrap this. LOL! Scrapping is ALWAYS on my mind. I hope to do a bunch this weekend. Happy LONG weekend!! WOO HOO!!

Well, I must eat dinner now..and I think that I will have another beer. Life is GOOD!! :-)
****EDIT****Life continues to be GOOD!! That was an AWESOME finale!!! Rock on DAVID COOK!!! WOO HOO!!!****

I am so glad to hear that everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day, myself included. I wanted to share the cards I made. This is the one that I made for Steve's Mom. She LOVED it!

He is quite the artiste! The portrait kinda looks like me. Very impressive!!

Anyways onto the second song 'Teenage Wasteland' by 'The Who'. (This song will always remind me of CSI NY!) He totally ROCKED this one! Back on track. I really can not wait to see him live. He rocks my world! I know, I know, I am almost old enough to be his mother.
I voted tonight and I actually got through TEN times!! WOO HOO!! Go David (Cook) Go!!!

I wanted to share a couple of LO's that I worked on over this weekend to celebrate 'Scrapbooking Day'. This first one is to celebrate Bryant's 100th day of 2nd grade. Don't ya just love the COOL shades??!
I used the fun, colorful, items that came in my April add on kit (called Snapdragon) from Studio Calico . So many Yummy colors!!
This sketch, along with the FAB new "Office Lingo" line by Pink Paislee, Quickutz and some Stampin' Up ink and punches-I was able to create this:
These LO's took me forever to make. I was very picky and indecisive. Not sure what I thought. Do you ever have times like this? Again, still not sure what I think???
I have been tagged... by Jonelle ...
So here are some random things about me:
What was I doing 10 years ago? I was living with Steve in Nashua, NH and I was working at the same company I work for now, but in the QC Department.
5 Things on my T0-Do List: Clean my car, wash the dishes, throw in some laundry, get Bryant ready for bed, try to make time to read my new book!
5 Snacks I enjoy: icecream, tostitos lime chips and salsa, chocolate chip cookies, dry cereal, strawberries
5 Things I would do if I were a Billionaire: Quit my job, pay all my bills, pay all my parents bills, Travel, donate to charity.
5 Bad Habits: spending too much time online, biting my nails, spending toomuch time and $$ on scrapbooking, eating late at night. These are not all bad are they??
5 places I have lived-Brookline,NH-Nashua, NH-Port Orange, FL-Daytona Beach, FL-Haverhill, MA
5 Jobs I've Had: McDonalds (I lasted one month-yuck!), Bradlees (dept store clerk), Bank East (bank teller), Sun Bank (bank teller), Sales Admin for a medical company.
I like getting these tags once in a while. It gives me chance to think and reminisce a little. So now I tag YOU. You the one reading about me. I would like to see your answers.
AND don't forget to watch David Cook tomorrow night on American Idol. I KNOW!! I am just a little obsessed with him AND I am not ashamed to admit it!!! Maybe it is part of MY mid-life crisis. LOL!! :-)
Have a Wonderful evening....

I am so HAPPY that I was able to snag this Add on kit from Studio Calico this month. It is on it's way as we speak! They were having some site issues on the night of May's big reveal. The kits are so anticipated that they always sell out! I really wanted this one. I have BIG plans for this and really can not wait to get my hands on it....
I wanted to share a few more things that make me smile. I LOVE these guys! Dale jr and Tony Stewart . Tony is my #1, but Jr is a close second. Neither one have won a race (YET!) this season (though Jr. should have last night, but I won't go there!) I know that many wins for both are to come! This avid Nascar fan may get to go to 2 new tracks this year. That would be Bristol, TN and possibly Richmond, VA. Very EXCITING for me indeed!
