My RAK arrived today - all the way from Australia

Here was the details through Fisk-a-teers: Do you still have a Blue Bobble Head? Would you like to WIN some crafty goodies?
With the CHA online crop coming up, we need to make sure we don't have too many Blue Bobble Heads filling up the message board, so here is your chance to show us a crafty face for your avatar and win some craft goodies too!!!
Here is what my RAK was:
 Pretty nice RAK for just changing my Avatar!

Up-coming Crop - I am planning to go to! & Club CK Free Friday Font

Just catching up on weekend emails while the littlest one still sleeping and the oldest is crafting away. Part of my kitchen is out. I have boxes to work out of and no counters around my stove. We have a playdate today, so I don't have to look at the kitchen to much today.

Well, here are some of the things I came across.

Let the crazy extended weekend commence!

Well, I am posting this a day too late! But got my truck back yesterday after she spent the night in the shop. Because she needed an unexpected steering shaft replacement. Gerry worked Friday night and is working now! So, last nights layout and crop with friends was out for me! :-(
Becky's 4th Birthday party is this Sunday and Monday my kitchen is being ripped out! Oh, and Tuesday we have the family party for Becky and of course, Gerry is working that night, fun! Wednesday, which is Becky actual Birthday I have my neighbor's daughter and we were going to do some baking and party then too! So, one crazy to the next!

On a good note, I have my 1st class today about Genealogy! I am excited to finally start, especially since I have been wanting to take this course for the last 4 years it has been offered. When I first saw it I was Pregnant with Becky, next time there was conflicts on dates, third time it didn't run, and the last session I was pregnant and due with Luke. So, I finally got a chance.... Anyway, I am hoping to get pass the ancestors I am stuck on. I gathered up info. from mom and talked to my great uncle (the oldest/last in the family). I do have to chat with others on my mom's side, but I got a good amount to go on there so far. I also was working on Gerry's side too! So, that is a whole other ball game.

Well, nothing new as far as scrapping, but I do have a card swap coming up. I am sure some more challenges I can find too!

Finally some scrap time and Challenges

So, I have to complete two Challenges:
First, by tonight Jen T's Throwdown Challenge
For this weeks throwdown challenge my main ingredient is USING ALL PATTERNED PAPERS FOR THE PAGE INCLUDING MATTING. my special seasonings are going to be using a PINCH OF STITCHING AND A DASH OF SPARKLE OR BLING somewhere on your page.
I couldn't get Jen's SAMPLE layout to post right. Here is Mine:
Needs a little something more, but it is not coming to me right now. What to add?

Second, tomorrow the Happy Hour Sketch Challenge #1
not sure of the completed details, but got this to go on for now. And now a hint about this week's sketch: You will want to have two 4x6 photos ready, preferably vertical, however, you could flip the sketch to use the horizontal if you wanted. And you already should know that it needs to be "love" themed....either your paper, the photos or something you can add to the page. You are going to LOVE this sketch!!!

Both are through Memorable Seasons.
 Will post what I come up with soon!

Here is a card I made for my hubby. He actually asked if I could make a card for him to give me. He is the one I  made and I made sure the inside was without sentiments. He could at least fill in that part!

I actually had fun making the cards and it also gave me more scrappy time since I was doing a card for him!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I need some scrap time! We had a trailer back into the driveway last Friday. I have been busy packing up what I can with 2 very active children running around. Of course, how it always goes for us. The second there is something planned, my husband gets overtime, doubles and/or Saturdays! Grateful for it, but it seems to always happen this way!

Just wanted to post something and hoping that I will be able to post some of my work soon!
