Here's a couple more projects from the crop that I can share!

* LCOM30 * Scooby Doo Mask By MelissaW

And I made this for Mindy!

* FLAMINGO SCRAPS * Beach-themed mobile By MelissaW

She supplied me the mini sea shells, beach glass, and thick-gauge jewelry wire to finish it and I was pretty impressed with how it turned out!

Hi ladies --
I haven't unpacked from the crop. No worries I'm not uploading to thread since I've been so useless this month.

I'm hoping to clean scrap room tomorrow. Just not sure if my new little foster will let me play.

Pictures coming Soon.

And I absolutely LOVE IT!!! I'm very very blessed to have so many wonderful creations by my sb.com friends in my newly redecorated living room. Rebecca, LisaL, and Melissa have all made me pieces for my beach themed room. My twin sister Missie and I made a few pieces too. I can't tell you have nice it is to look around my living room and see each piece as a reminder of the wonderful friends I have found here.

Laverne!! Best doggie name ever.

You need to adopt two doggies and call then Schlmiel and Schlmazzel!

Absolutely Lesley. What I want are 2 boys that we pull from the shelter together and name them Butch and Sundance.

Not sure how well Schlmiel and Schlmazzel will go over in the south!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the new VLB hostess with the mostess. LesleyC has volunteered to host the VLB and allow me to enter retirement. It has been so much fun hosting all of the talented individuals here. But my obligations to the dog rescue & family have left me little time to host.

You're not going to get rid of me. I would love to play along.

Be kind to Lesley! I'll be lurking!

Thank you Lesley !!!!

Lesley! How exciting that you are going to be the new hostess! I want to play too again next month! I've really enjoyed seeing all the awesome layouts this month and I've had fun sharing mine too! This is an awesome thread.

Eileen - thank you for all you have done for this thread - and I still look forward to seeing your new layouts and also want to keep up with all your fosters. Laverne is so cute and I also love her name.

We used to take in a lot of cats from the pound - at one time had 6 of them and some we kept them all for about their entire lives. Some of them are still alive. Others could not get along in a multiple cat household and we had to find other homes. One got sick and died at 10 months and that still breaks my heart. Plus other ones came and went. HEre are some of their names:

Gina Lolabrigida
Brigette Bardot
Norma Jean
Mickey Rooney
Spencer Tracey (our gorgeous long-haired red cat)
Audrey Hepburn
Greta Garbo
Rudolph Valentino
Boris Karloff (tuxedo kitty - perfect)
Sophia Loren
Lauren Bacall
Bogie
and I can't forget the two my son has had for the past 12 years:
James Dean
Natalie Wood

My sons two cats are still living and my husband has Bogie. We got most of these in the early 90's but never had more than 6 at a time - a lot since they were all indoor cats. When my ex-husband and I divorced we each got 3 of them.

We don't have any pets now because we are gone too much but we enjoy Joe's cats.

Got 18 pages done at crop yesterday and if the weather is nice I will photograph them but have a lot more to post before I get to those.

I think I have 20 or 30 more to glue which will wait until the late August/early September crop and I will dribble these others in so I have things to post until then.

Thanks for that warm welcome, Eileen!! And for all you've done. The doggies need you -- just come and play when you have a chance.

And I spit out my cherry pit at Schlmiel/Schlmazzel not going over well in the south! LMAO!!! Butch and Sundance would be PERFECT boy doggie names!

I'm looking forward to hostessing. Just a heads up that I will be on a business trip August 5-15, so not sure how much I'll be on at that time. I will pop in to give the challenge for the week, but if I disappear, it's not like I'm gone for good.

Thanks, Lesley, for taking this over. Let me know if I can help you some time.

And, Eileen, you have done a wonderful job and certainly have earned retirement. You amaze me at all you do for your family and your doggies.

Looking forward to next month.

I'm falling a bit behind--long story, but my littlest was diagnosed with strep throat after being rushed to the ER for a possible head injury. This was right after I got home from the crop; I feel like I haven't caught up on sleep yet. I don't know if I'm catching the strep, if my fatigue is because I haven't been eating right/exercising/drinking enough water, or if it's just another stupid sleep/depression issue. Anywho, I'm in for August (of course) and I will catch up in the next few days.
Note to self: start at my post on page 18.

Genie, yikes! Hope Lil' E (and you!) feel better soon! And that the rest of your family feels better soon.

Dropping off two more. I can't believe how much scrapping I got done this weekend. I must have ignored my family a lot, lol!

Morning! I'm getting cu!

Thank you Lesley for taking over the hostessing! I realize I have been so busy and scatterbrained this month that I never even posted weekly challenges... BUT, this is the VLB, I'm sure you gals won't shoot me for that!

And if you gals do feel like taking on a simple challenge this last partial week of July, make a birthday card! My mom's bday is coming so I have birthday cards on the brain, lol...

JCI!

Thing 2's birthday celebrations were this weekend. We had tons of fun, even if the weather didn't cooperate with his party. Doesn't mother nature know it's supposed to be WARM for pool parties?

Yesterday we went and saw Despicable Me 2. It was a cute movie!

Eileen, I know you will enjoy your 'retirement' with the doggies and your family.

Lesley, Good luck taking over the VLB. I hope to come and go. I haven't manage to get much scrapping done over the last few years since Ryan and been working full time and in school and then working 2 jobs. But starting next month he will be hired full time as a Sheriffs Deputy. Which means he'll be home more often, although we have no idea what his schedule will be. So I'm going to have to play it by ear month to month if I can sign up or not.

I had to pick Nina up from camp early. Seems she was a little under the weather. She's now sleeping next to me on the couch.

But all is not lost: here is the thread (and a challenge to boot!) for August VLB!
