Well, hello....

I have been a bad blogger lately! Lots of stuff going on. Busy, busy busy. I wanted to pop in and share a LO that I have been struggling with for at least 3 weeks now. I loved this picture and the story behind it and the title, but I could not make it work! Finally, I had an idea...and another one...and another one, and then it finally came together. Finally. So, the story behind this LO "He is my Back up" is:

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:

and the October add-on kit from Donna Downey's blog:

Well, they arrived yesterday. Aren't they beautiful?!!! I really need to clean up/out my scrap space. I guess today is the perfect day. I am home with Bryant. He has a bit of fever and is down for the count. Poor guy. I also have to get ready for my trip. Where you say? I am headed to Martinsville, VA to the 6th race in the Chase for the Nascar cup. Go Tony! I have never been there and I am so excited! I also get to meet my friend Kathy IRL that I met through this crazy scrapbooking hobby of mine. Good, good, good times.

I also wanted to share one more thing. My sweet friend Jonnelle just opened a very cool etsy shop. You can check it out here. She is so creative!

Have a great rest of the week! I (maybe) will post pics from the weekend when I return. It really depends how incriminating they are...LOL!

I love the story and the layout. What a perfect story to scrap! The items you won are awesome. I can just envision all the beautiful items you will make with it!

I think Jonnelle's link is missing. Unless I am blind and that could be true.

What a fun layout, sorry it took 3 weeks to get it done tho! I hate when that happens!

Have a fabulous time in Martinsville!

Hope we can scrap soon! Looks like you have lots of awesome stuff to use up! ;)

Love that lo. The title just speaks to me. I think I may use it for a lo about my husband. Thank you for the inspiration:)
