fourth fourth tag!

I've been tagged by my GOOD friend Tonya (wink, wink, Tonya gets it!!!).

Here's what you do. You go to your photo files and click on the fourth folder. Pick the fourth photo and upload it here. Now...go tag your friends!!!

So, in my 4th folder, the 4th picture is of my dog Cinnamon and my beloved English Bulldog Diamond. Diamond is now in doggy heaven, but we have LOTS of pictures of her.

Now...who shall I tag? Pam, Robin, and Lori.

Well, this is what John and I dressed up for this year at Angie and Doug's annual Halloween party. He was an old lady...which, was REALLY FUNNY because John refuses to dress up every year and the man will not let make-up touch his face to save his life. So, it was just freaking hilarious that he did this year. Me...well, I was a Harlem Fat Girl. I had the Fat Girl part down, but I needed a fro wig. You see, there is a story behind that. When Gwen Steffani's song Holla back girl came out, I thought she said Harlem Fat Girl and as we were on vacation with Angie, Doug, Leah, Vince, Cindy and Chris, we were sitting at the pool and I busted out singing "I Ain't No Harlem Fat Girl" and everyone there died laughing at me. Since everyone one of these people were at Angie's party, I knew they would all get my costume. It was great! You can't see very well, but I had Grilz on my teeth to go with my fro. We had a least I was told I several people. LOL!

Go on over to the family blog to see more pictures if you are interested.

3D Design challenge

Hope I made it in time. We shall see. We were challenged this week to make a nugget box over at 3d Design Challenge. I did, but I can't show you the inside. The treats will contain the name of the baby (baby shower favors) and as of right now, it's all a secret! Thanks for this idea ladies! I was trying hard to come up with something crafty for the shower favors!

Sweet Slumber

Here is a 2 page lay out I made this weekend on my scrapbooking get-a-way. I realized...I am NOT a scrapper. I'll stick to making my cards and scrap the important pages only. It was pretty hard for me to sit there scrapping the entire time. I kept thinking of all of the cards I could have been making instead. LOL! I did want to get all of Dominic's NICU pictures scrapped...and I did. Every picture of him in the NICU is in his book. The last page I did was the day he came home and the kids met him for the first time.

These pictures are of him in the NICU. You can see it was close to coming home days...he only had his feeding tube in.

Doug's Card

This is a card I made for my best friend's husband. For what ever reason, this man will ALWAYS love the Bengals. My husband and Doug have a long standing (17 years) battle over which team is better. My husband loves the Denver Bronco's and likes the Bengals, but only because they are our home team. Doug on the other hand...well, he only loves the Bengals. This past Sunday, they lost AGAIN to the Dallas Cowboys. They are now 0-5. Yeah, they ROCK. ROFLMAO.

Sooooo, being the meanie I am, I had to make this card for Doug. The outside says "The Bengals Suck" and it has a Carson Palmer jersey on the front I made with CTMH's sculpting foam. The inside says "Denver Broncos...accepting new fans" and has a Cutler jersey inside made again with the Close To My Heart sculpting foam.

It's a pretty plain card, but it gets the point across!

3D Challenge

This is my entry into the 3D Wednesday challenge. Anyone who knows me knows how much I'm into coupons. With that in mind, I turned my "booklet" into a coupon organizer. Now, keep in mind, I use a 3 ring binder with baseball card sleeves, but the for beginner, this is too perfect. Plenty of compartments to organize by cereal, cleaning, meats, etc.

This month's sponsor is Penguin Pants Rubber Stamps. Check em out...too stinkin cute!

M Jennings Designs

This is the beautiful bracelet Melissa has designed for Pages for Preemies. She is sooo fantastic. $5 of each sale will go to benefit Pages for Preemies.

Stop over and tell Melissa what a fantastic job she has done!

I copied this right from her blog about each charm and why it was chosen. I just love this!

I chose the three charms for specific reasons in this design.

I chose the "I love to scrap" charm because the women who are creating these pages love scrap booking and they are creating pages for the parents of preemies.
I chose the heart charm because of the love behind this special project.
I chose the rose charm as a symbol of strength. Each baby and family member with a baby in the NICU needs strength
