Ok, but what if I WANT to??? UGH! Unloading groceries today and the milk fell out of the truck and I swear it exploded all over me!! So, when did they install bombs into gallons of milk anyway?? It was quite a mess! It hit the drive which is rock(ok mostly dirt) and so I had a nice milk/dirt/rock smoothie all over my legs and my new shoes!! This after a rather stressful morning anyway. And so yes, I felt like crying over spilled milk. Anybody got cookies to go w/ that??

ok here's another LO I did today...I'm on a roll....I'm scrap happy! heehee!!! I used a template( it gives you the basic outline and you fill in w/ your own papers , embellishments and pics of coarse!) The template from http://kyliemoore.typepad.com
the papers and flowers are from Tiff Tillman at Little Dreamer Designs.
more Amelia pages! Done w/ a kit called monkey baby by Tina Raparanta from http://www.scrapbook-bytes.com. Really cute kit !!! and I know you have already seen the pics but I figured I'd scrap them up and show them off!! I have done good too, I actually did like 5 pages today and got them printed !! woohoo! That's a big deal for me to actually get them printed too!! LOL
I used a QP created by Kelley Mickus and distibuted by All Things Visual and then just added the pics and the quote and journaling. It's a quick fix!! ( a QP for my nonscrappy friends is a quick page where most of the stuff is already there! and LO means layout) It's not as fun as making your own pages but like I said, makes for a quick fix when you want to scrap something!! Or ya know, feeling lazy! LOL!!!

Nothing says "Back to school" like a backpack w/ skulls and poodles on it!! Yep, we found the perfect backpack - which is essential for starting a new year. It's her fave color and looks really cool! we saw it at Target and she was like "That's it! That's the one I want!" it is really pretty , then I looked at it and I was like " skulls and poodles, interesting combo!" and she said " it's death poodle! beware!" So we got a good laugh and got the bag! I have to admit the black and white part does remind me of rub ons or stamps, something to do w/ scrapbooking! ( It's a sickness I know. )
And onto the lawn mower of doom.......sigh.....I went to mow today and as I was mowing along my merry way, the mower suddenly got slower, made a big BANG and started squealing and then I was engulfed in ALOT and I mean ALOT of smoke!!! It was crazy!!! It was making this awful noise and the smoke was just rolling! I was like " Oh no it's gonna blow!" and jumped off and sprinted for the house thinking if it actually caught fire I was screwed and would be calling 911. Scott of coarse isn't here, he's working out of town today. I called his friend , he asked me if I went to see if it would start again, are you kidding me? I am too damn scared to go back out there!! So after laughing at me he gave me his best diagnosis and then I called Scott. What should I say?? "hey honey, do you know how much I looove you?? I blew up your mower!" So I just told him how nice it was of me to try and mow the yard but something happened.....so I told him my frightful story and he just laughed at first, before the realization set in that we now have to buy a new mower. All Megan had to say was " Cool!! you really blew up the mower????" To which I had to explain that it's not literally blown into pieces in the backyard! Then it was less exciting. Well.....it was enough excitement for me!!!
