In the Spirit of the games!

One of the great ladies on the Cricut board (Melody) offered to cut this out for me. You see I desigend it but do not have the Cricut cart needed to cut the dragon out (Indie Art) so I wasn't able to cut it :-(. But I will get it, sooner or later.

Anyhoo, I desgiend this so that I would be able to document the great games that are going on in Beijing, China. The boys and I have been wathing alot of the games.

Making Music

As I prepare for a 12 hour crop this weekend (whoo can't wait) I got the urge to make a clairinet for my son's one and only band concert. You see his grades started to suffer from the two hours a day, twice a week they pulled him from class. As much as I love him playing an instrument, his educatiuon is more important to me. So I degress, I decided to work on a clairinet for his page. And Jeff Gordon got messed up and was sucking during the race (finished 42 in a 43 car field).
<---------- That is the end result. And I am really thrilled with how it came out. Not perfect. It is missing some keys and the spacing of the keys I did do is wrong. But darn it I am very proud of it. and I plan to use it with pride on my pages.
I'm also hoping to make some more cuts for pages this weekend so I don't have to wait on the machine at the crop. I think that is what slows me down so much. I mean I love the 15 page I got done at the swarm, but I'd like to get alot more done if possible. No I am going to get more done this weekend. If it kills me I am going to get more done. Period.
On a side note, only 17 more days till shcool starts. We are all getting nervous about that.

Well let's see what I have done since I last posted. It's been a few months, and I am sorry. Things get weird around here.

I've gone to a retreat (Gotta Scrap Inn) with mom. It was awesome as usual. I love going there once a year with her. Nice to get out and have just me time. No kids, no meals to worry about. Just three days (friday night-Sunday afternoon) of scrapping and having fun.

I've gone to proubly 3 crops with the ladies from the pack. They are always fun to go to. Great group of ladies.

I've gone to my first Cricut Swarm up in Port Huron with my sis and mom. It was a trip. Didn't get as much done as I wish I had, but it was great never less. Had a great time meeting alot of the ladies I read about on the Cricut board.

I've got my 2007 NASCAR album almost done. I think I Have like 10 more pages to do. Most Jeff Gordon and Harvick, since I've waited to do them till last. I wanted to try out a few different techniques on other drivers first. But sadly I've taken like 2000 more pics at the race this year. The boys stayed with us all week and we attened three races so there are alot of pics.

there have been alot of scraping oppurtunties since than. I will try and post some more layouts daily.... I will try.
