Stirrings in Tiger Town

Football here is serious busniess! The high school program around here is usually nationally ranked... so most of the town ends up at the high school football game. Its crazy and super fun.

The first game of the season is tonight. I have tonight off (which is so rare) so I can actually go with my husband to the game! Probably the only game I'll be able to make all year. Usually I work my butt off football games... especially if they win.

I got a diva gift today from the lovely Alice!! Thie gorgeous set of Anna Griffin stamps!! Thanks so much Alice!

This is my first layout I made almost entirely out of my Club Stamp July kit. I added a bit of doodlebug (posies and rickrack) The pictures are from the Natural bridge in Aruba. Its just gorgeous there!

Scrappin til the sun comes up

The sun is starting to peak its way above the clouds, and Im still up scrapping. Its past my bedtime (which is 4am) Im tired as can be, but Im fighting the urge to start another layout (knowing I'll be up another hour if I do.)

Here is tonights creation:

All of my best pictures were taken by friends and family. This was taken by one of our groomsmen.(who is currently in Iraq) He rocks so much... he took alot of great pictures for me!

My mom also got lots of killer pics. My photographer was very sucky. :( I could have done a better job than he did... but oh well. It happens.

Diva gift #2

I got my second diva gift this evening from my girl Amy. Lots of fabulous ribbons and fabrics! A big bag of sequins and other shiny things I love so much. I also recieved a cute flower stamp, a baggie of cool shapes and quotes, a pretty flower and a pack of dragonfly charms. This stuff so rocks! Thanks Amy!!

I cheated and got someone to take my shift today.. so Ive been home scrapping and playing around all day. Its been so great to just do nothing but what I want to do. I made Matt cookies, did laundry, played online, scrapped and made a few RAK packages. I love to surprise friends with goodies!

Artist Trading Cards

I need to find more places to trade ATCs. Sometimes (like tonight) I just get in the mood to make them. I also love looking at my small (but growing) collection.

These are my Alice in Wonderland ATCs. They are a 3 card set using Alice stamps and quotes from the book by Lewis Carrol. The stamps were purchased on ebay from a fabulous seller Tuscan Rose She sells lots of fab collage supplies and artsy stamps. I just love her stuff!

If anyone knows of a good ATC trade site... please tell me in the comments below. You can even do it anonymous :)

Its be a rough day! Work is nuts at the moment and I had to train 2 people tonight. They seem to know what they are doing... hopefully they will stay! Im exhausted! I dont know how much longer I can handle the 6 days a week at a bar. *ugh* It makes me feel all bitchy and depressed when I come home. (on a side note it makes me never want to go to a bar to drink)

Here is a happy us layout I did the other day. I love this picture! It was taken at my grandpas's 70th birthday party in January of 2005. I loved my curly hair (which you cant see in the black and white pic) I dont know why I love it so... it isnt the best picture of my husband.

I miss my husband. Weve been working like crazy lately... and opposite shifts. He's been staying up to see me and then suffering for it the next day. In know it will be over soon, but I want just one day where neither of us has to do anything. *sigh*

I think this is the reason I keep doing "us" layouts.

Its so my month!!

I am the *diva* of the month over at Torn Paper. Today I got my first divalicious package from my girl Joan!! I love it all... drool over my goodies!

Yes, its good to be the diva! It so made up for the fact that the UPS guy came while I was at a meeting. Damnit!! There are things for my Classy Coordinates Summer Sister in there! I wanted to mail her package as soon as possible!

Speaking of: This is my last CC Summer sister gift... lots of luscious ribbons!

Go Naked

I challenged myself this month to write "more meaningful" or real journaling. For some reason I freely write my feelings down if I think nobody will see them. I tend to clam up and get insecure if anyone (even my husband) looks at them. I dont know why I am so insecure sometimes. This I spelled out clear as day for everyone to see.

Anyway.. this layout was tons of fun! I distressed and painted the Scenic Route Chipboard. I love using up my old acrylic paint!

Whoo hoo

Matt and I go to this party Hall of Fame weekend every year. There is always a 50/50 drawing to help pay for the party. This year WE WON! It was $550!

So we went out for this amazing dinner at a Japanese Steakhouse. I drank 2 orange creamsicle martinis. So fabulous!

M gave me $200 to spend! I probably will put some towards M's medical bills. Im definately spending some on scrapbook supplies. I already blew $50 on stamps and artsy stuff at Club Scrap. Im also lusting after Poppy Ink subscriptions. Im definatly getting TAC stamps.

Yay! Im so excited!

2 cards with my Audrey stamps

I cant believe I didnt blog for a week! For my *few* everyday peekers.. Im sorry. There alot going on here at the moment with my husbands job. I have been working more hours than normal. Its been crazy crazy! I havent had much scrap time.... probably wont for a bit. It's almost football season and I work in a bar in a football crazy town!... oh but I will be blogging!

Here are my "Audrey" cards.

I just love love love Audrey Hepburn! Ive always been a fan. When I saw these 2 breakfest at Tiffany's stamps I had to have them. They were purchased seperately at 2 different places. :)
These are birthday cards for my aunties.
