A little grungy, a little bit Frenchy, a little bit PDXy-2

I did a little scrapping this morn and used the photo that I had posted on 4/25 (see below). It was for a challenge at the Color Combos Galore site using only red, yellow, white and beige.

Ah, the smell of a good latte in the air while waiting for a table at Harris Street Cafe. What could be better - an early morning in Fairhaven with the sun shinning and the family ready to bring on the day. Oh, yea, Andrea should have been here, too. And certain people (I won't mention names) should not have kept turning their backs to the camera. At least Dirty Dan gave me a welcoming smile & posed for me.

Note to Self....

We could all use a little appreciation. And who tends to be harder on ourselves than, well, ourselves! Take some time this week to write yourself a little thank you note for being wonderful. It can be short and sweet or long and detailed, but either way, it's NICE to give a little thanks.

I went the "short and sweet" route, writing up a quick little thank you note. Just a little something to get me through the day
This assignment was taken from and well worth passing around.

Mossy Worlds

Recently (well, a month ago, now) my little girl (well, not so little anymore) wanted to play in the woods. So, we did and had a ton of fun! We created little mossy worlds. We hiked our woods, carefully gathered a variety of moss, layered sand and dirt in our jars, added a few stones for contrast and waa-laa, we had our little worlds of mossy cuteness. Thanks, honey, for a super-duper fun day playing in the woods.

I've lifted this little truism from a friend who had posted it on a Scrapbook forum (thanks, Christi)

All I can say is "what? what?" with a shrug of my shoulders and a grin on my face, guilty as charged. :)

who are these people?

It wasn't that long ago when my darling daughter was bugging me to start blogging. Ok, I thought - but what would I say? what could I post? who would read this stuff? Well, most of the 1000 hits was little ole me --- has anyone looked at some of my aMusing stuff, today? I'll just take a little peek at my blog. I better put "something" new up to keep em comin'. I gotta tell ya, it's been so much fun and now I'm reading other blogs, too. I feel cool, with it and in with in crowd. I've got a blog! Thanks, Andrea, for taking your mum by the hand and bring her into the world of blogging.
But, who are these people hitting my blog 1000 times (as if I was counting)?

National Hug Week

Don't ya just love all these cool National Holidays - there's one for everyday of the week. Maybe not all nationally recognized, but holidays to celebrate and take note of, none the less. This week go out and hug someone or something. Hug a sister, a brother, a wife, a husband, a significant other, a friend, a dog, a cat, a hamster, a tree, a teddy bear (the stuffed kind), a comfy pillow or just give yourself a huge hug!
You deserve a hug today and so do they.

i'm scrappysam ..... and i'm sticking to it

It's all about me and scrapbooking. At our recent SAS (StartAScrapbook an online scrapbooking site) weekend long, online scrapbooking crop (for those you don't know what a crop is: it's when scrapbookers get together and create layouts or cards using a challenge(s) that will help inspire, follow directions, view different takes on the challenge(s) and generally have fun). Or as my DH likes to call them eCrops. Anyway, one of the challenges was to do a layout about "why we like to scrapbook" an AAM (All About Me) page. I wanted to try my hand (and puter) at something different in digi scrapbooking and WaaLaa here it is. (for an up close and personal look or to read the fine print - just click on the picture)
