This week's theme on the 2 Day Photo challenge was HOT!  Below are the shots I took... The ones that i submitted the first two.


I decided to do this page as a landscape orientation as the photo just LOOKED better this way. I am sure it will be odd when looking at the scrapbook and having to turn it but what the hell right. It is my book, my rules!!

This Week

So this week was pretty good... seemed long though as I have (had) a cold.  I think it is pretty much gone now.  The new accounting clerk/receptionist is working out REALLY well and is taking a lot of work from me so I am not soooo overwhelmed all the time.

This week the Fairies and I (Deneen, Crystal and Tracey) got to go to the taping of the season finale of The Mercer Report  It was pretty cool I have to say.  I have never been to a taping of anything before.  The audience is a LOT smaller than I had expected, and for that matter so was Rick Mercer.  Haha.. he is very short and has a very big head!  He is a funny man though and we had a great time. 

I am looking forward to going back to the CBC building sometime as they have a musem there that looks pretty cool.  See the Tree house?  Recognize it??  YUP.. it is Casey and Finnegan's from Mr. Dressup! 

All in all.. a pretty good week... BTW the next entry will be. HOT!  :)

Pokey Tool - Use #1

So if you have scrapped with me you know that I have MANY uses for the pokey tool.
I have often said that I should compile a list.

This will be post #1 of uses for the pokey tool.

I needed to remove paper from the pack and it wasn't perforated.. grrr.
So I grab my pokey tool.. (this one is a poker and spreader) and use it to remove the paper.. of course there are photos.. haha

I was messing aound in Picasa 3 (you need to get this) and accidentally made a collage of every photo on the computer of Cambria.. I think it is rather awesome!!

Layout Share!

Another layout so soon!  It is true I am very into scrapping again.  I was out of it for so long.  I am sure a lot of that had to do with not having a place to crop.  But now that we have SQ it is all mojo all the time!

So here is another page for my Cruise album.

Tuesday blabber

Welcome to Tuesday!

Curtis is not feeling well and neither is Nanny.. Todd must have shared his cold with everyone.  I am not getting sick.. NOPE.  Been there done that this year already.

Something wonderful has happened at work.  We finally hired a receptionist to replace me.  Yes I did leave that position at the beginning of December and she just started yesterday.  We have had a temp up until now and she didn't have the qualifications to do some of the work.  Because she wasn't qualified I have been doing many tasks that the receptionist should do and now she is doing them!  Oh this is going to give me so much more time for other projects like.. *gasp* SEARS...

This week has been amazing weather wise so far.  I am officially done with winter, yes I love snow!  However, the time has come to move on and bring on Spring!.. So because of the weather I have been getting off of my lazy ass and out walking.. yesterday I walked 6.5 km and today 3.25.

I think I need to start adding some photos to these posts but really this is just a babble.. blah blah blah.. :)

Little buttons

So I have noticed that other people's blogs have the little social media share buttons at the end of each post.

I do not!

I have adjusted a setting and this post is to test to see if I have those little buttons now.

Cruise Album

I started working on the scrapbook for our Cruise that we went on in November 2010. It started out being an 8X8 album.. nice, small and quick right? Then I started thinking about all of the extra stuff that I have to put in.

Yea, I could have scanned and printed them.. but I wanted the actual paper work in the album.. so then I need to decide if I want a 12 x 12 album and I really didn't... soooooo I am doing my very first 8 1/2 x 11 album!

It is really going to move me out of my comfort zone becuase everything is usually square.. should be a lot of fun to do.

Here is the page I finished tonight.. yes it took about 5 hours.. haha.. it shouldn't even have taken an hour it is so simple. Damned internet.. haha


Sweet the weekend is here!

I am getting my hair done this morning with help of a WagJag deal. I bought one to my normal hair salon... yeah it is next to RNT but it still a really great salon! haha. It cost me 29.00 to get a cut and colour.. yup great deal.

After that I have to collect Curtis at hockey practice as Todd is off to a Leaf game... He calls it the Buffalo game as he doesn't like the leafs so much.

So tonight I am planning on starting my Cruise album. I am thinking 8x8 with a lot of journalling as I have gotten away from that latley. I was looking at my old albums last week and loved going back and reading what I wrote.. soooo.. it is back to journalling for me.

Tommorrow morning I hope to get out for a walk as I haven't been in *gasp* two weeks! I hope the weather cooperates as I am made from sugar and will melt in the rain!

After Curtis' hockey game tomorrow Todd and I are going on a date! We are going to see Battle: Los Angeles. It looks like a pretty intense movie and I am really looking forward to a date.. it has been a while since we went out.

I will be back after with a photo of the new do!

Edited to add this horrid shot of my hair BEFORE getting it cut and coloured. I have to wait for the morning to get someone to get a good shot of my hair.

Movie Night

Curtis got some movie passes for Christmas and we finally got to use one of them tonight. Well actually, we tried taking him to see Harry Potter about a month ago but he freaked himself out and didn't want to stay.

Tonights movie choice was a little more his speed. We saw Gnomeo and Juliet. It was a very cute movie. There were lots and lots of Shakespeare references in the movie. I am sure I didn't get them all.

Fun night.. thanks Curtis!!

Lorrie Everitt Studio

I am entering a contest tonight on a wonderful designer's blog.

Take a look at the tutorial she has posted tonight about making glass charms! I would love to win the kit. I have looked at her charms that are on display at every time I am there!!

Wow it has been a while since I posted anything here.

I have been getting back into scrapbooking lately and have been loving it!

My new favorite place is to 'blame' . It is an awesome scrapbook store and I have been going to thier Queen Crops and some Friday night crops.

Once I get some of my new layouts scanned I will post them here .

I hope to use the blog as a journalling tool. Some of the albums I have seen lately people have taken blog posts and printed them off and put them into thier album.. COOL!

That is all for now!
