Yep, Fall is officially here. The high today was 58 degrees. WOW. I love the Fall...I just hate the cold weather!!! I get cold VERY easily. Hopefully this will be a mild winter :)

I have 2 new layouts to share! The first one I created for a challenge over at Posh. Breaking the Rules # 19. Here was the rule to break:

Don't leave empty space on a scrapbook page because it will look unfinished.

Hmph. I completely disagree haha!! :)

My sweet little Rascal & Snickers :)

And here is another layout of Beth & I.

Finally, Sunshine!!!

I think it has rained here in KY everyday this week. BLAH! Today it's actually sunny with NO rain!!! Too bad I'm staying inside all day...because of football :) Plus, I'm feeling a little under the weather :(

Scott has been off all weekend, yay :) We ate at Hooters last night and I'm soooo proud of myself. All they guys ate wings & fries (It looked soooo good) and I had a grilled chicken salad. I usually order the grilled fish sandwich and fries.

Not the greatest pic but I still love it :)

And of course we went to karaoke afterwards.

Scott busted out Kenny again, he sounded awesome :)

New scrappy stuff:

I made this little card for Scott's Uncle. I hope he likes it!!!

Layout of my friend Amy & I.

Well, I'm off to catch up on my blog reading and comment posting!!! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!

Applebees Has Karaoke?!

Scott took me to Applebees this past Saturday night for Appetizers & drinks. The bartender announced they would be having karaoke and I flipped out (in a good way) haha! You know we LOVE karaoke and I just couldn't believe they had it. So of course, I made Scott sing :)

He got to sing twice and they said he was in the running for a free dinner because he sounded so good :) He had to stay till midnight to be in the running and we ended up leaving at 9:30! Oh well :) At least he rocked the place with some Kenny & Alan Jackson hehe :)

Not the best picture...but he looks SO cute ;)

We also met this really sweet old man at the bar :) We had a lot of fun with him haha! He was hilarious :)

Cute isn't he?! Haha!!! Wow, I just realized I wear a lot of black.

And here we are when we got home...I was soooo ready for bed!!!

Sunday we watched football all day and yesterday was pretty boring....we watched football, again!!! I love it :)

Scott went back to work today, he's on days so it's not so bad. I have been cleaning my little heart out....and I created a couple of new layouts!

My niece Johanna...sooooo cute! I created this one for my DT over at Posh Designs.

And I followed a sketch from Pink Sketches for this layout. It's sketch #46. Check out the awesome site here! And check out Sarah's blog, she has amazing talent and she is a DT member there!

Have a GREAT Tuesday!!!

It's a BeAutifuL Saturday!

Since it is so nice out, Scott is taking me for a walk in downtown Madison. I LOVE walking and I think I have finally turned Scott into a lover :) We have went twice this week! After that we are going to grab some lunch...Subway is sounding pretty good haha :) And tonight he is taking me to Applebees for appetizers and drinks :) Can't wait!

A few new layouts to share:

Have a great Saturday!!!

Yea, a really big sundae from DQ sounds pretty good right now...it is only about 10 minutes from my house...hmmmm :)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! I have been on the go every since Friday. I got my hair done FINALLY, let me tell ya, when those roots start showing I turn into a mad woman. I hate my roots showing, it drives me ccccrrrrraaaazzzzyyyy!!! And it drives Scott crazy too ;)
My silly car is STILL not running, we have had a million people run tests on it and everything has came back OK. I'm really trying to avoid taking it to a shop. Who knows what's going to happen with it!!! I have been driving Scott's truck all weekend, so much fun...NOT! Haha!

Up For A Challenge?!

The first one is over at Posh Designs. Nini posted a really cute card sketch under Posh Challenges in the forum. Here is the sketch and my take on it:

The little monster's head is actually coming off of the top of the card. The white background is my scanner.

Another really cool challenge going on is over at the new Point Blank-Period blog/site. Check it out, there are some really talented gals there!!! I was very VERY honest in this layout that I created:

I also made this little mini card for my friend Beth! I can't wait to give it to her tomorrow. After Scott and I make a trip to Tumbleweed I am meeting her at Karaoke! Woohoo!

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!!!

My Car Stinks.

Oh, the joys of having a crappy car! My little Pontiac and I are going to have it out. I've had it for 3 years now. In the past 2 months, it hasn't started 3 different times. The first time I was at the tanning bed and my stepdad had to tow me to his friend's (Tilley) auto shop. He said it was the fuel pump, so we spent over $200.o0 bucks on a new one.

Of course, that didn't help. Scott went golfing a few weeks later, drove my car & the piece of poop wouldn't start for him. Had to get it towed again! Tilley wasn't for sure what the problem was. But they did something to the fuel pump again and it started right up. He said I would have to take it to a dealer and have them put it up on a lift and hook it up to something. GREAT. $$$$

I shouldn't have let it go but I did. Today, I had to go to Madison to tan and get Snickers & Rascal so more Science Diet. I sat in my car, turned it on, nothing. Wonderful. At least it didn't start here in my driveway. I'd be really ticked if I would of had to get the thing towed again!

So I had to drive Scott's BIG, enormous, gigantic truck. When I'm driving it I feel like a tiny little ant. I haven't drove it in forever...and today sucked because I had to go across the Madison-Milton bridge in it. I was holding on to the steering wheel so tight I had red marks on my hands!!!!!!

Here's my wonderful little car. Scott's saying it stinks. Please don't think anything of how he looks. He just finished working in tobacco haha! Tobacco- BLAH!

And here is his monster...

And me with the monster :)

His brother is supposed to be bringing over some electronic thingy (I have no idea what it is, I am clueless when it comes to vehicles) to see if he can figure out the problem. Let's hope so!

On to scrappy stuff. I created my first DT project for Posh Designs last night. Check out the Posh bloggy if you get a chance!

Hope you all are having a good Monday...hopefully mine will get better!!!!!!!

I can't stop eating! HELP!

Well, it's 8:23 p.m. here in KY. It has been a pretty boring day. So boring, I'm going to tell you all what I have consumed today. Nice, huh?! :) I eat many small meals in a day, but today it's been overkill.

Mcd's (Thanks to the hubby - but I did eat healthy. The Egg McMuffin. With a hashbrown. Ok, maybe not so healthy)
A bowl of Fiber One Cereal
Fiber One Yogurt
A Skinny Cow

Grilled chicken wheat bread sandwich
Quakes Cheddar Cheese Rice Snacks (These are so freakin good)

Tofu Shirataki Noodles mixed with some Laughing Cow cheese and a few crackers

100 Cal. pack of Veggie Crisps w/ salsa
My frozen frapp drink I make

And I'm still hungry! I try to eat pretty healthy everyday, but hey, a girl's gotta have her Mcd's every once in awhile, right!? I'm thinking I might go make an Egg Beaters pita sandwich soon...that sounds good :)

I have a few new layouts to share:

My Snicky Poo

Me and Snickers...I think Rascal is getting jealous with all of these Snicky layouts :) I will have to scrap her soon!!! I just love the new Sassafras stuff :)

Ah. Tobacco. Aack.

Well, I'm off...
Have a great Saturday night all!

FabUlous Friday!

I am in love with my mailman. Yes, it's true. But only because he brought me my goodies I ordered :) My *fav* out of it all?! My new Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists! Oh, how I love me some Angels :)

I had to use these right away, so I altered some magnets with new KI Memories paper and Prima flowers.

I am SO very excited & honored to announce that I am a new DT member for Posh Scrapbook Store! Check out the site, there are tons of great gals there :) I'm looking forward to working with Nini, Michelle, Miranda, Kim, Rebecca, Dawn, Mara, Stacy and Racquel!!!

Here are some new layouts. I had to take a pic of this one, too bulky to scan. I made the buttons with Creative Paperclay and sprayed them with my Tattered Angels Mist.

And on this layout I used one of Tessa Ann's cute buttons. Check out her Etsy shop! Soooo cute!!! :)

Well, it's time for dinner...and hopefully I will be scrappin' all night :) Have a great weekend all!!!

I just LOVE the Hungry Girl emails I get everyday :) I just ordered the new Hungry Girl recipe book too, can't wait to get it in the mail. Here is a recipe that really caught my eye. It's a take on Starbucks Double Chocolate Chip Frapp (my husband gets this when we go, hehe..) and it tastes AWESOME! I have made this recipe everyday since I received it in my inbox. Yes, everyday ;)


There's only one way to put this. WE ROCK. Our super-chocolatey Frozen Fudge Chip Freeze is phenomenal, not only because it has less than a third the calories and a quarter of the fat of Starbucks' Double Chocolate Chip Blended Frappuccino Creme, but because it actually tastes BETTER, too. We're not even gonna waste time blabbing about it. Here's the recipe.
Try it out for yourself.

1 packet diet hot chocolate mix, dissolved in 4 oz warm water
1 Tbsp sugar free chocolate syrup
2 oz. light vanilla soy milk
3 Splenda packets
1 Tbsp of mini chocolate chips
7-8 ice cubes
Fat Free Reddi-Wip

Directions: Place dissolved cocoa, chocolate syrup, Splenda, chips, soy milk and ice in a blender. Blend on high speed for 30-45 seconds. Pour into an attractive cup and top with a little Fat Free Reddi-Wip. Enjoy!
Serving Size: 12oz.
Calories: 135 calories
Fat: 4.5g
Sodium: 235mg
Carbs: 20g
Fiber: 2.25g
Sugars: 14g
Protein: 3.5g

Here is the link to view the nutrition facts on the actual Starbucks drink. Crazy!!!


And here is how mine turned out...

Yummy :)

A couple of new layouts to share...

There is red ink around all of the edges on the above layout...crazy scanner :(
Have a GREAT Tuesday!!!
