Long Weekend !

OMG it has been one very long weekend for me! My hubby decided to do some computer cleaning. He works in computers. He told me he done some file cleanup on our computer cause where he works use something and it cleans up and delete files that's not been in use for some time or something that's not connected in any way shape or form. Well needless to say he deleted our ethernet files. So our computer that I had been using no longer will let us log onto the internet because these files are gone. He put those files back on but they still won't let us log on! We have DSL! So we pulled our daughters computer from her room to use for this internet. And OMG what a pain in the behind. It's nothing like mine. I miss mine! Trust me it's a hassel! It's slower then mine to. So I've not been able to get on line all weekend long cause hubby was working on ours.

Yesterday I was gone all day to the thyroid doctor for my checkup! Plus I got to go do some shopping both scrapbooking and clothes. I love shopping. I pickup Cosmo Cricket 'Dutch Girl' packet and two Basic Grey packets that I had been eyeballing for sometime, Scarlet's Letter and Fruitcake, along with Amercian Crafts pp's! Love them all and I can't wait to sink my teeth into them!

I missed all of you! I'm back but using my dd's computer!

Pay It Foward ~ RAK

I just so happened to be pulled from the hat to win a Pay It Forward RAK from the sweet Carol aka scrapmomof2 by leaving a comment on a post on her blog. She had been the recipient of a Pay It Forward RAK, and she was paying it forward to three of her blog readers. I received mine from Carol yesterday and couldn't wait to share! Thanks doll!

So, now it's my turn. Leave a comment with this post, and sometime in the next two days, I will randomly pick three people to pay it forward to with a RAK. It will be some random goodies, and hopefully you'll enjoy them! This is going to be fun! I won't have it be the first three, I'll do it the old-fashioned way . . . we'll put the names in a bowl, and I'll have my kis pick them out! Sound fair? Sounds fun! So, leave me a comment, and then check back in a couple of days to see if you are going to be the recipient of a Pay it Forward RAK from me!

Very sad news.....

again! I tried out for another DT. Another one in the wind so to say! I'm going to vent a little. My total of DT's I've tried out for is just out of this world. I mean really. Do I suck that bad at scrapbooking, cardmaking or altering. I mean really. Am I not answering the application the right way with wrong answers. I mean really what is it! I'm bummed again about another DT and not getting it. Would you like me to tell you exactly how many DT's I've tried out for since the beginning of the year (2007)


Yes that's right twenty-two. Two of them twice each and made the DT on one of the two. I'm really really grateful for that DT. She has given me the chance to show her what I can do. And I can never tell her how much I appreciate her given me that chance. HUGS to Nicole at Scrapbooker's Club House. Link located on the side bar. So really what's wrong with me! I work my butt off and still NOTHING! I've got my hat in on another DT and sometime this month we will know who gets it. I'm really having my doubts about getting this one to. After you don't get on so many why should a person even think they will get on. Apparently I SUCK big time somewhere in the system!

Sorry for the novel! Just needed to vent!

Boo! Card
