Off? On a Monday?

Wow! It feels crazy to be home during the day on Monday! My day is normally filled with approving payroll, contacting customers, profit projections, charge off calculations, profit improvement plans, marketing plans, conference calls, and all the regular banking transactions that come along. Instead I am home watching the "Magic Schoolbus" (although that is definitely NOT the highlight of my day Braylon does enjoy it!) The bank is being audited tomorrow so my normal Tuesday off will be filled with loads of fun!

Oh well, I am going to make the most of today anyway. Have some cleaning and laundry to catch up on. I am also going to finish the gear album I have been working on with my Grease Monkey collection from BoBunny that was in my project kit from LPS. I have been messing with it for so long so I can achieve the look I want with ribbon coming out from all angles, with tags behind all the pics. I painted it with Maya Mist which is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I will get the pics posted sometime this week! WOOHOO it feels so good when things get finished!

Bad Girls are having a birthday!

Speaking of birthdays... mine is in 3 weeks so I am hoping my DH will take a hint and buy me one of these amazing kits!! This one is one of my favorites from February. Look at all that yummy goodness waiting for someone to just dig in! The thing I love about the Bad Girls kits the most is the way Wendy has classes to help you use what you bought. You don't just buy all the mediums and have to idea what to do with them LOL... We have all done it and it is no fun to have goodies sitting there and the HUH? that you get when you look at them. Head on over and check out the new way she is doing the kits so she can continue creating!

Everything but the kitchen sink??

I saw this on the Core'dinations blog and my first thought was huh?? what does the kitchen sink have to do with my favorite cardstock LOL! After reading I discovered it was actually a challenge to use something other that a "normal" (whats normal anyway?) scrappy supply to showcase the awesome things that you can do with the cardstock like no other. In my layout I created a background paper with circles by using an old jar top. Pretty cool huh? You can sand, tear, emboss... the possibilities are endless with this colored core cardstock!

Glimmer Mist is the same great product with a Fabulous NEW Look

Over at Tattered Angels they are changing the labeling on Glimmer Mists. They are going to look like the bottles in the photo so keep it in mind when shopping for your favorite colors (mine is Watermelon YUMMM)

Happy 4th!

Be sure to take a moment today and be thankful for our FREEDOM as AMERICANS!! If you see a soldier give them a big thanks and let them know it is BECAUSE OF THEM that we are able to celebrate today!
