I am pumped tonight

The new Page Maps see here from Becky Fleck for September came out tonight.  I had submitted a card based on one of her sketches and it is on the site.  I was so thrilled when she asked me to do a card in the first place and equally thrilled when she said she loved it.  Woo Hoo….

I am so proud so far

My sister in law is taking part in the Ironman in Penticton today.  She did an incredible time for her age bracket in the swim at 1 hr and 21 mins.  I just checked the website and she has completed the bike ride through the mountains to Osoyoos and back which is 112 miles in 7.25 hrs.  She is now in her final leg of running which is a course of 26.2 miles.  Woo hoo….I am so proud of her to have the endurance and tenacity to complete this grueling marathon.

What to do???

This is getting to the point of ridiculous.   I got one layout done this past week and back to square one.  Still no mojo and it is getting scarey.  I have lots of great photos and beautiful paper but nothing is speaking to me right now.   I am trying to figure out how to get back in the groove.  Sigh!!!


I finally did a layout.  I put my mind to it this pm and did a page for my Book of Me.  I dug out an old photo of me and Brad Johner (woo hoo) at a party and came up with this layout.  I used Cloud 9 Cinnamin Sticks pp and embellishments along with Maya Road Office Sheers which Caroline sent me.  I also used foil for the first time on my dots.  Going to take a bit of getting used to.

A month today

Sheesh, this is becoming annoying.  I have not done one single layout in the past month.  My mojo seems to have flown out the window and never came back.  I have fondled things, reorganized my stuff, looked through the pizza boxes that aren’t emptied yet and even my photos and “nothing”.   This is getting serious as I have three cards I have to make and I am going to be late for an ABC challenge I am in.  I am at letter S and would hate to be late now after all the rest.  Oh dear……here’s hoping my stab at it today will work.  Wish me luck!!!!

My package arrived

Remember I mentioned about Carolyn who I won stuff by mentioning her on my blog.   Well the stuff came today.  All I can say is wicked!!!! Love it all and haven’t seen some of the stuff she sent me before.  I know I will make good use of it all.  Thanks again to Carolyn.

Becky Fleck loves it

Do they say great things happen in threes??   Becky Fleck sent me a sketch of a card to do for September Page Maps.   I sent it along to her (my own slant on it) yesterday and today she wrote me back and said she absolutely loves it!!!!  Woo hoo.  So it will definitely be in the September Page maps on the website as well as her newsletter.   I am thrilled to death yet again.

So excited

I can’t believe I didn’t blog this right away.   I got news that I will be published in the Canadian Scrapbooker December issue on Friday night.   I almost fell off my chair in shock and was so excited that I was shaking.  I have been sending in submissions for two years now and I finally am having one of my layouts chosen.  I can’t believe it still and so happy that my dream has come true.
