Hi everyone! My Dad is doing just fine now. We found out he was going through conjestive heart failure. If we hadn't asked him to go to the hospital he would've died. I'm so glad he's okay as do my Sister and my Mom his ex wife. He needs to be on oxygen for awhile and eat a low sodium diet. I hope all is well with all of you.

Good morning ladies, I planned on raking up leaves and branches this morning, but woke up to a little SNOW-yuck! Guess I can't rake, darn. I may have to scrap:)
Have a great day!


Such a shame. I'm sure you were looking forward to the raking. I hope you were able to do plan B.

Katrina, it's great to hear your Dad is doing better. Hopefully he will get that heart under control.

I'm sorry you haven't received your last package. I don't know if anyone has contacted your big sis about it. They probably have. Hopefully you will know something in the next day or two.

Well I have had SUCH a productive day! I did the 2-page lo for Rebecca, which I will post in a day or two, and I also started the one for Betsye! I had such a great time, too. I also took time to go and plant my tomato seeds, and check out everything else in my greenhouse. I did a couple of loads of washing, a shedload of ironing and put clean linen on the bed as Josh, my 21 year old, will be home from university on Thursday for his Easter holidays.

Busy day - but good fun too. I wish I had a day off at home more often!



I thought it was only 1 page for rebecca?

hi everyone...Ive been mia for a couple of days and it looks like I missed alot.
Suzi and Katrina, I am so glad your spouses are okay...my goodness those are some scary sitations.

Hi Kimberly! Im so excited to get my sis!!!

Rachel, please join in!

I bought myself a new car yesterday. It is sooo cool! I love it...the price and financing amount is a bit scary, but i LOVE it.

Deb, to answer your question about the car I had when I came to Nashville...there is nothing wrong with it but it had 70K miles on it and I felt I should trade it before it got so many miles I couldnt get anything for it. I need to have a reliable car cause Im on the road alot with my job, so we just thought it was time.

Suzi, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your dh.

Katrina, glad you made your dad go to the hospital. some men are like that - something has to be seriously wrong before my dad will even see a doctor, though he has gotten a little better as he's gotten older.

LOL!!! Oh Mel, you're talking to a person that has 217,000 miles on her car. I told you I drive them in to the ground!! That's okay though, I haven't had that $650 payment in 6 years. Knock wood!!!! Since I don't have the money for one right now I hope it last another 5 or 6 years. LOL!!!(unless I marry the doctor. LOL)

Glad to hear your dad is ok Katrina, but that last package - well your sis cannot hold her head up around here any more...

I agree on the car front - 57k is nothing - its nearly new! My car is three years old, and having driven a 72 mile commute to work (one way) for a couple of years, the mileage zipped up, but its a reliable little car, and I aint changing it - not when theres scrappy supplies that need buying!

Sadly off to work now - that scrappy day yesterday gave me a but of a taste for it!

Got Neil home tonight and my friend from work staying over. She'd turned the duvet down last week, but I didnt change the sheets as I knew she was coming back this week. I turned the duvet up just now, and it had nail varnish on (red on the white cover) right in the middle at the top! I can't believe she didnt tell me, and I was a little p'd off. I just used nail varnish remover, which has helped, but I think I need to do a little more and hope it goes when I wash it.

Hey ho.

All of us are going to be watching after what he eats. We love him and would not want to lose him to something that can be prevented.

Susi glad your husband is on them mend and doing better - you are very lucky to have such a great support system.

Katrina I am happy to hear that your dad is better and that he got to the hospital in time - scary stuff.

My pup is still not doing to well. I thought she was getting better as she ate on Monday, but last night and this morning again nothing and I have been up with her since 3 - her tummy is making funny growling noises and I think she was sick outside. I will call the vet today and see if I can get her in today or tomorrow.

Good 'early' morning ladies!!

I don't have the luxury of sleeping in a little today. the superintendent is counting on me to open up the units this morning. He has 3 communities and since the one I'm going to is only 1 1/2 miles from my house I said I would open them for him. He has inspections in them today.

Sherri, Ihope your puppy is on the mend.

Mel, I bet this one get better gas mileage, doesn't it? Can the payment be higher than the one you had?

Rosita. LOL!! Loved your comment!! I've always bought new ones but I keep them until they're just about worthless. LOL!!! I get my money out of them that's for sure. Of course if Ihad to do a lot of driving out of town like Mel does I'd reconsider. Although 70K is just getting broke in!!!!

Sherri, funny thing is, I DID read the directions - but I must have flipped the pages from one to another, that's the only thing I can imagine. I'm having major blocks on some of the topics, I may end up literally making something up! like the bucket list. or I'll just have to substitute something else. I'm still trying to figure out what my happiest moment would be. and I'm having trouble with rachel's ice cream one....I guess I'll just have to work on the recipe ones, that should be easy!

hi girls

sherri i hope the vet has some advice for you for the puppy..

tina really there's nothing you would like to do for the bucket list? you've never wanted to see a certain thing, meet a certain person... the items don't necessarily have to be uber realistic. i figured that would be an easy topic for everyone that's why i chose it.

hope everyone is doing well.

Good morning ladies!

I had a great nights sleep! It is the 1st one I have had since Krysta came on the scene. I am planning on visiting her today during "visiting" hours. I am interested in how it's going.

I am super excited to get my new little sister.
My mind is already whirling with fun things to do.

Tina I'm finding it really hard to get some of the pages done also, it is like I just blank when it comes to thinking about myself-I've got DH helping me out on some of them, coming up with things I wouldn't think of under normal circumstances. But you're so creative I bet you'll come up with something perfect!

Rebecca I finished up this layout and thought I should enter it in your challenge. All the paper is over a year old (atleast that old) and this was the first time I tried to mask a title (or anything in fact!) Kinda hard to photograph with all the rain here today.

Can you identify the building in my profile pic?

PS. Hopefully Trishy wasn't some sort of childhood nickname that casues you trauma still today. If so I will have to spend the next 3 months making it up to you (of course I will do that anyway )

[quote=Fortunes Fool][quote=kaykay1010][q uote=Fortunes Fool][quote=kaykay1010][q uote=Fortunes Fool]Good Morning Everyone! Yesterday at CKC was great! and today I'm going back! WooHoo!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have bought so much new stuff, and the classes were fun. I've more classes today and I'm so excited! I'll check back in with everyone later!
[/quote]


Did you take the class in Portland? or at another CKC?

What classes did you take?

I took a sketchabilities class, a totally awesome layouts class and the abc's of scrapbooking class. I enjoyed the layouts class but the other 2 were just OK....fortunately in the fall, they will be close to me again, so I can take a few more!
[/quote]

I took the Latest and Gretest class, Totally awesome layouts, 15 minute Pages, the CK sketches calss, and a lecture class. THe first 4 were fabulous, but the last one wasnt. Oh well. It is also safe to say that I spent way to much money. I'll have to take pictures of everyhting later today, but I'm pretty sure that it wont all fit into one photo.

Today I'm gonna have to do paperwork and fix my computor. The really sad part is that I wont be able to play with any of my new supplies until easter weekend. (sigh) Oh well.
[/quote]


I guess we will have to compare notes on the Totally awesome layouts class and see what each of us came up with.

Did you go to Portland, or a different CKC?

No, I attended one closer to me.

Hi big sis! How did you know - I've been speaking to my mom this evening! She rang me and I did my cheery 'how are you mom' and she said 'I've been feeling very sad and low cos I didnt get any cards or anything on Mothers Day'.

Now, my friends, it is Mothers Day over here THIS Sunday!! Not last Sunday! We have a card ready to post tomorrow, and I will be ordering flowers for her as I always do - I couldnt help but laugh - shes so dozy!!

My big sis has got her down to a T with this pic! (unless she was thinking that it looks like me)!

Oh Im so excited! Everyone's getting claimed! It's the most fun time! I see I have been claimed to! WOOOOHOOOO!!!!!! Hello Big Sis! I can't wait to try figuring out who you are! LOL Im pretty sure your secret is safe though, cause I absolutely SUCK at figuring it out! LOL Besides, I like the element of surprise, so perhaps I suck cause I don't try very hard.

Rachel, that is one of my very favorite layouts of yours! I reall love the design and those 3-d red letters are so cool!

Tres, My new car is a Chevrolet Traverse. it's not BRAND new (it's a 2009) but it only has about 30K miles on it but the carpet, seats, EVERYTHING looks brand new. The tires I think are brand new, which is awesome and there is only one tiny little place on the body and that will be gone on Friday, when I take it back tot he dealership for the detail job and for them to fix that one little place. Girl this car is soo cool. it has a 'back-up' camera (there's a screen that pops up on the rearview mirror when I put it in reverse, so when I'm backing up I can see if anything is back there and if I get close to hitting something, it starts beeping and lights flashing. lol It also has OnStar, which is soo flipping cool! And believe it or not the car has a phone number! So if someone wants to call me and cant get me on my cell because I have no signal or something, they just call my car's phone number and we talk thru sattellite phone! How cool is THAT? Ok, enough gushing! If you want to see a photo of my car, here is a link to my fb page:

Mel, that car does sound awesome. so many bells and whistles.

Rachel, yep, that's Oma. Brigitte's mom. She does digital scrapping. I'll have to go check out her gallery.

Girls, I didn't put the quote of the day up yet. Better get on that.

I have Onstar(and a phone) for the first time too.
I've only used the Onstar twice in 9 months, but once to have them unlock my car doors(since I locked my keys inside)- how cool is that?? and once cuz I was lost. Gotta love it!

Hello MrsAnnie! How are you this evening?

I've been checking out your wishlist, and have a few other questions for you:

*what's your favorite color?
*would you call yourself a paper girl, an embellishment girl, or a technique girl?
*Who are your 3 fave scrapbooking manufacturers?

and lastly...a tornado is racing towards your house and you can only grab a small box of scrapbook supplies (let's ignore luxuries, like clothes, etc lol) - what do you grab?

I got a new car in November and it has on-star and the phone. I can also use my cell over it using bluetooth. This is the favorite thing about my car.

I also have an android cell phone and on-star has a pretty cool free app. My phone can tell me how much gas I have left and various diagnostic, I think it can start and unlock my car to - but I haven't tried it.

Not sure if I will keep the on-star after the free period is up though.

Hello big sis! Your avi is just perfect of course!

I don't have a set favorite color, I'm drawn to all things jewel toned-think peacock feathers!
Definitely a paper girl-my hubby calls me a paper lush
My three favorite manufacturers it is hard to pick three, but the ones I have the most of...Tim Holtz, Graphic 45 and Prima

If I had to choose what to grab, I'd do a two handed grab, my clip it up in one hand and my drawer of absolute favorite papers in the other!

You have me so intrigued, I can't wait to try and puzzle you out! I hope you have a wonderful evening!!!

Sherri I'm so sorry to hear about your puppy, I hope she starts feeling better soon! I'm sorry to say I don't know much about your pup, is she getting along in years?

Tina I'm finding it really hard to get some of the pages done also, it is like I just blank when it comes to thinking about myself-I've got DH helping me out on some of them, coming up with things I wouldn't think of under normal circumstances. But you're so creative I bet you'll come up with something perfect!



Hi Annie - My pup is a youngster not quite 3 years. I took her to the vet where she made a liar out of me. I told the vet she hadn't been eating and at one point in the exam he asked her if she wanted a treat she went crazy and ate 4. He gave her an antibiotic to take thinking it might just be something she 'got into' and if she isn't better in a couple of days we will look into other possibilites. Hopefully this is all it is. Thanks for asking.

Sherri - did you tell the vet about taping her b*tt? lol maybe she's on the mend then, hopefully. isn't it annoying though, it's like making a doctor's appt cause your sick, and when you get there, you don't show any symptoms!

I have been so busy this week and hardly been able to read up, but am caught up tonight. I dont hasve time to comment on everything, but I have read everything.

Katrina I am glad your Dad is doing better too.

I am keeping a close eye on my sweetie and wont let him drive thus take off by himself yet. I have to be on the road by 6am to get him to a dr appt in the city. This isnt his cardiologist, its another one.

I have something to ask and get your discussion on. I'm not sure quite how to say it, so I will just say it. First and foremost I am not putting anyone down, it is just something I have chose not to do. I received a package from a swap today and it reek of cigarette smoke. Has anyone else received anything like this too? I have received items from someone that smokes, but never did it smell so strongly. Is it wrong to request items to not smell like smoke? Again I am not saying anything to be mean so please dont take it that way.

How fun to watch the claiming start!
It brings such joy to every heart.

The game here is to spoil a sis
And keep her guessing.. "who is this?"

And all the avi's are oh so fun
and clever, each and every one!

Oh Sisters, do enjoy this round!
With the best sisters ever found!

Suzi, that's a tough call on the smoke smell...my initial reaction was no it isn't too much to ask, some people are sensitive to smoke and it would seem like common courtesy to at least try and de-smoke anything prior to sending it off. However, I have a friend who smokes and she can never tell if she smells smokey or not because she is just so used to the smell-and it could have been something similar with this swap..so I just don't know, i've kind of talked myself around in a circle. Sorry I couldn't really give any real insight!

Thanks Annie & Jackie. I guess I am thinking for future swaps. You know on the bay the seller always puts on their page it comes from a smoke free home, I totally understand now why they do that.

On another note, when Bug's little brother comes to spend the night and go to church with us, we have to wash his clothes over as soon as he gets here. DH has COPD and he is really the sensitive one. One thing I can say about their Mom is that she never smoked in the house nor car.

Suzi, I would not want something that smelled of smoke even when I did smoke. I didn't smoke in my house because I know how things can reek of it.
