its gettin PREHISTORIC in here!

little miss chloe had a 2nd grade project this weekend...
construct a DINOSAUR out of household objects...
easy enough... right???
maybe for some.. but i was sweatin it..
wondering how we were gonna throw this thing together
and make it turn out decent...
i mean.. scrapbooking/stamping.. yes i can do that...easy peasy...
but a creative dinosaur out of nothing... hmm..
more of a challenge for me...
thank goodness for DADDY. (who made an awesome head!)
and KYLE (who did the legs).
with their help..
i think this TRICERATOPS
turned out pretty sweet!
(and its a GIRLY one if you couldn't tell.. )
have a great TUESDAY!


Spanky's Turn...

Next FRIEND layout...
and its all about
Once again... the list of things
I love about this girl could go on all day...
she is SO much FUN.
When we are together
there is bound to be a lot of laughing...
acting silly... joking around &
The quote reads...

I will tell you.
It is someone with whom you dare to be yourself.'

This quote is perfect for describing our friendship.
We know each other so well,
we can pretty much say and do anything and know
that we are always gonna be
It's the BEST.


Here's To My FRIENDS.

today i was working on a scrapbook layout..
i got it all put together
and didn't really like the results,
so i ripped it apart and started over.
the theme of the layout was based
around one of my friends..
and the things that i love about her...
of course i started thinking about all my
and how thankful i am for each and every one.
and how i appreciate all their differences
and the ways in which they each bring
something meaningful and special into my life.
i decided i should make a scrapbook and
dedicate one page to each person that i call a
my plan is to share them as i get them done..
but there will be no time limit..
it could be fairly random as to when
the next one will pop up.
here goes... numero uno.. in PINK is all about
the quote reads..
and this is SO true about Angela and I..
when I started listing the things I love about her..
(and i was going to keep it to 10 things..)
it went on and on way beyond 10... :)
THANKS Ang for your friendship. I love you girl!!

Here is the resulting chaos of my creativity.
This is how I really scrapbook. In the middle of a mess.
I make a gigantic disaster when I get an idea that can't wait...
then I clean it all up.. put it all away...sort and organize...then..
usually another idea hits and the process begins again!! :)
