A couple of my co-workers 'dragged' me out on the town. Okay, I really wanted to go out and we had a blast! I really need to cut loose more often..
This gorgeous necklace was made by the fabulous Janna Wilson. It was an early Christmas present from my friend Heather (long story) and I have an outfit planned all around it to wear to my work Christmas party tonight!
As you all know, I am a huge Nascar fan (no really?) Well, one of my favorite sales reps in Charlotte, N.C. (from work), sent me pics of the Nascar Hall of Fame. The building is still in progress and is scheduled to open in May 2010. We can not wait to go to Charlotte and check it out. What a funky looking building
A few weeks ago my work held a Christmas card contest for kids of employees 10 & under. The theme was Winter in New England. Bryant entered his 'cool snowman' pic. Though he did not win, he and all the other kids got $10 gift cards for Target. You would of thought he won the lottery. Very cool indeed!
A couple weeks back Bryant had a shopping day at school. The children were allowed to bring in a small amount of money to buy gifts for their parents, greandparents, siblings, etc. The presents he bought were fine....except this one. A Tiger Woods card (for Grampy). He knows my Dad likes to golf and he has been teaching Bryant a bit too. This was just bad timing. The card actually says "Tiger's Tales". I will just leave that one alone. We will just get Grampy something else..

Here is a distant view of the wall of pumpkins. This is always a vision:
Lots of beatiful handmade goodies there. You can check it out for yourself here.
I admit I have not done any scrapping lately. I know. Me! Right? I need to get back on the wagon. I have many more Fall pics, along with the ones above, to scrap. Plus, I am getting together the items that I want to use for my December Daily. Can you believe that it is almost that time again? I am really happy that I did it last year. You can check it out here.
Have a great rest of your weekend! Send me some Mojo. I need it!

We LOVE the RED SOX in our house. No big surprise there. My favorite player is Josh Beckett, I have a couple t-shirts and his jersey. He's my guy. Well, I also aquired a Dustin Pedroia jersey. Bryant asked one day "why did you get a little man (my nickname for Pedroia) jersey, if JB is your favorite?" I told him it was because Pedroia is my back up or my second favorite and he was cool with that. Bryant's favorite player is Jason Bay. He also has Jay Bay shirts and pics. While shopping for back to school clothes, he decided he wanted a Jacoby Ellsbury jersey, so my Mom bought it for him. I asked him why Jacob and not Jay Bay and his response was..."He is my back-up." End of story. It is all good.
Last week I told you that I had won the Crazy Daisy October kit:

I am so happy with this LO. Love the challenge! Love the papers! Love especially that I was at the game! Love that I can combine 2 of my favorite hobbies, scrapping and New England sports! Did I also mention how much I love these Sports Edition papers?! Got lots more plans for them...

A two pager (which I rarely do) based on the sketch below:
I found this sketch at one of my favorite new sites called Let's Scrap. I really like sketches and the versatility of them. As you can see, I switched it up a bit and I really loved the result. They have a ton of cool sketches to choose from and a whole gallery full of inspiration. I have been wanting to scrap these pics of Bryant in his Dad's old Def Leppard t-shirt for a while now. Bryant's thing is that it is cool, but it is "So 80's"...whatever dude! Anywho...I had fun scrappin' AND I got to use my favorite Piggy Tails paper evah "Old King Cole". Love , love, love this whole line. So if you are looking for some inspiration, go with a sketch. It is always a great starting point. TFL!!! :-)

We are die hard New England sports fans in our house. We love our Celtics basketball, Red Sox baseball and New England Patriots football. I have been wanting to scrap this picture of Bryant from a couple years ago for a long time now. This was the perfect opportunity! So, put on your game face...are you ready for some football??!!

I am very well known for my obsession with Nascar and absolutely love to go to races whenever possible. This past June in Loudon NH it was a rain shortened race. So as the title goes, I am a 'true blue nascar fan' (rain or shine!) I LOVE these papers and embellies from Piggy Tales too!
