New Imaginisce Blog Candy!!

Hi Everyone!
Today I got to go to work and Pat and I made all the final decisions of what we are ordering from the CHA show! It was SO MUCH FUN! I can't believe I use the term 'work' or 'job' for what I do! It's not either, it's just plain FUN with a paycheck every 2 weeks! :-)
Sadly we can't order every single line from every single company. But we did pick two from Imaginisce. We picked Live Loud and Love & Cherish so keep an eye on The Cropping Corner for all the new stuff that will be pouring in from now until April! YIPPEE!! Melinda is on the Imaginisce design team! How lucky is she? Her blog is super cute I just followed her and can't wait to see what she designs! If you want some DARLING blog candy from the new Lucy Bird collection head on over there. Next I am going to hunt down some Scooter's Vacation too LOL
Happy Cropping!

Scrapals Sketch Challenge

As usual I missed the deadline LOL Tee really challenged me this time. I had an awful time cutting the pictures so small. I wanted all of Bryan's hand in all of the pictures of Carlee's feet LOL Then all the negative space, ewwwwwwww. One of my Besties, CD used to tell me "Negative space is your friend." I don't really think he is my friend. I am more of a let me just sticker sneeze all over this to get rid of the negative space type girl. LOL

Here is the sketch I picked [the top one]:and here is my take on it. Not great, I'm not loving it, but I did the challenge LOL
Thanks for looking!

Silly Old Bears!

This layout is pretty basic. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this 11 1/2 Mini Scallop Circle. I'll be begging for more when I return to Creative Cuts and More! I'm not sure why the top stickers are white. Because they are not. They just refuse to show up on the picture. How weird is that? This layout is personal. Isn't that what scrapbooking is all about? When I moved here in 1982, it was awful. I was in 7th grade and all these mean girls wanted to beat me up. They 'chose' me, which meant I was to fist fight with them after school. Today I am 41 years old and have yet to hit anyone with my fists. LOL The reason the mean girls wanted to beat me up is because the second Jill and I met we became the very best of friends. She got off the bus at my stop to show me where my house was. LOL It was in Conifer and all those mountain roads looked the same to me. My parents had driven me to school so I had no clue where to get off the bus, but Jill knew. We listened to 45's and admired my amazing Smurf collection. ROTFLOL! Well she forgot to call her Mom and got grounded. So from then on I was the target of the mean girls.

OK, back to the layout. I always called Jill 'Silly'. Twenty-eight years later I still think of her as Silly. Which she is. Every time we get together we still laugh like crazy and have a great time. Now the whole Pooh thing....... We both were a tad obsessed. OK, maybe more than a tad. Our first babies had EVERY single Pooh thing available on the market. Today if we both had all the money we spent on our first babies nurseries we would be sipping drinks with fancy straws scrapbooking the days away while our children were in school instead of working like slaves everyday LOL

OK, so here it is, 2 of my favorite Silly Old Bears. :-)
Also, from the looks of things, she likes my second baby as much as the first! :-)
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope all of you have a "Silly" in your life!
