Happy*Birthday.......

....to me! A little early - 25 days early...but guess what the hubs bought me Friday night!!!!! Finally, finally...I own a Canon Rebel XT!!!!!!!!!! I have been snapping pictures like crazy...I can't get over how clear and precise they are compared to my poor little camera I was using that has been very faithful but it finally has bit the dust...

I can finally take pictures of layouts in the house and get a decent picture! I can get decent closeups...I'm in camera heaven!

The new challenge is up at ScrapMojo! We have a ultra fab Guest Designer! And a fantastic prize package as well!!!! Make sure you check it out: http://www.scrapmojo.blogspot.com/.

Here is my layout for the challenge...I really loved completing this layout. I really tore into the paints, alcohol inks, pens, & glimmer mist on this one. I tore up a vintage piece of sheet music and layered and stitched all over. I broke 3 sewing machine needles doing this layout...lol.

Here are a couple of layouts I did yesterday. The top one is for the new scrapjacked challenge. The second one is just for funsies!


Didn't really do anything to spectacular yesterday for the 4th. I do have a 4 day weekend for the holiday - but, the hubs had to close the store last nite, so he didn't get home until after 2:00 in the morning. So, I rented a couple of movies from Blockbuster: "Fool's Gold" and "Valley of Elah". I only watched "Fool's Gold" last nite - and it was so*so. Definitely not all they cooked it up to be in the previews of it. Glad I waited to rent instead of going to the theatre. I think that the "Valley of Elah" looks like one Troy will like - so, I am going to wait for him to get home tonite to watch that one. What else have I watched lately....oh, we watched "The Bucket List". That was pretty good....I'm feeling the want to go to the movies, but nothing is playing that sounds good to me. Troy wants to see that "Wall-e" movie. I have absolutely NOOOOO desire to see that. I can't stand pixar movies at all. I don't know why - but, they just totally irritate me. Oh, I know what else we watched - that movie "10,000 BC". That was a very odd movie. I guess I'm just not into the whole fantasy kind of movies. I have a very hard time watching shows/movies that are so not real life. Like the show "Walker Texas Ranger". I cannot stand that show. It reminds me too much of the Hardy Boys books....geez. They always had exactly what the needed, when they needed it. Whatever.

Ok - so that was my rant for the day.

What else...how about some pictures I took with my new camera!!!
