Just a few things...

June KOM
To read the story of this layout in it's entirety and see close up pics
It was hands down..One of my best days ever...
This layout was for an event that I was lucky enough to get asked to participate in by
hosting a challenge for VSBN (that's Virtual Scrapbooking Night..but it's really more like a weekend) at SCS..I thought I'd share the sketch and layout with you here too so if you want to play along you can

My Challenge Was

"Tell Your Story"

Take an event that you've been putting off scrapping because you have too many pictures, or crappy pictures but that has a significant story and get it scrapped..

using this sketch...

Ok my challenge was a lot "wordier" than that...but that's the if you decide to play link me up so I can see what you did!

I have a new addiction

It's Facebook...I could spend hours there..

ok I have spent hours there

In a matter of a few days I have connected with so many people I've lost contact with!!

SO Fun!

Starting Monday I have Growing in Unity week, so if you get a chance come by and leave a comment..


Because there will be free Unity given out at the end of the week!!


1. We are in TLF

2. We are done with getting our house rented out and we really like our tenants (we're landlords!!)

3. We are looking forward to getting on with our new journey to DC..we're leaving Mon am

4. we have nothing to do tomorrow but relax and pack up the vehicles

5. Wireless access in TLF!!

Too Da Loooo to THE "Lou"

Supplies Used: Unity Stamps Nov KOM

Making Memories pattern paper

Internet is going to be kind of spotty for me the next week or so..but I have some things to tell you.

On Jan 31 from 7-8 pm I will be hosting a sketch challenge here at Splitcoast.

Then everyday next week Feb 2-6 is my "Growing in Unity" week.

I will have a project here everyday and a winner of some Unity Love will be chosen at the end of the week randomly from all the comments. These posts will be scheduled, because that is the week we will be on the road, so if you don't get timely replies from me that's why.

This is our last day in our house...we are moving on base tomorrow for the remainder of our time here...I'm getting a little emotional we've lived here longer than we've ever lived anywhere..(5 years almost)
Saying goodbye to my girlz on Friday night was the worst...

"Hospice Honeys"
Kat, Stef, Me, Marla, Les
We all worked together at a Hospice organization...and although Kat and I eventually left we stayed buds...these girls always have my back no matter what and I theirs....
I love you guys! Don't you forget about me!

I took a time out yesterday....

From the packing and the moving extravaganza to do a little stamping and scrapping

what can I say? it just had to be done....

I used Unity Stamps Giggle Grove, Nov KOM, Small Elegance

Pattern Paper is Colorbok

AND...a little love

The Unity Addicts Wednesday challenge was to make a card that was DONE inside and out...I used Unity Stamps: Oct KOM, sentiment

Paper is Basic grey, Bazill, and K&Company

and somehow I also managed to get a sketch done...

Unity Stamps: Wild and Crazy Bunch

Paper is Fancy Pants

I want to show my appreciation for you guys for supporting me and inspiring me

while I live out of boxes... so I'm giving away a Stamp

The Unity Tree stamp
which is the tree in the Growing in Unity kit

Just leave a comment and I will draw a random winner

Sunday night at 8pm

In other news...

we've been doing a round of "going aways" lately

if you're affiliated with the military in any way this will make sense

then again probably if you've ever moved at all this will make sense

so here's a pic of a gang of us at Chevy's doing a farewell shot

of Tequila on Thursday night

(not me though..I don't do Tequila unless it's frozen in margarita)

It's probably impossible to imagine...

That I could get anything done in this nightmarish mess...
but somehow I did...

Supplies Used: Unity Stamps Sept KOM, paper Making Memories

Supplies Used: Unity Stamps: Butterfly Beauty, Simply Said

Paper K&Company....

ok so here's the scoop...

I know I haven't been out there catching up in blogland...I'm sorry....My life is a staging area right now... (we finally found renters and best of all I LOVE THEM!!!) thank you so much for all your prayers and wishful thinking!! We've had some minor things we need to fix around the house so that we can get our occupancy permit...Thank you lord for blessing us with friends who know how to do this kind of stuff....they are coming over tomorrow and I'm going to feed them lasagna....;-)...we will be moving out of our house in approximately 20 days..


if I'm not here as much that is why...please don't give up on me though...I plan to be here and around all through our move.


I finished the Unity Tshirts and sent them without taking a picture...well my camera was missing for a couple days, I thought I accidentally packed it and then it showed up in my tool basket on my craft table....I'm such a dork....

so if you could also say a little prayer that Angela and the Unity gang love the tshirts that would be great...

I know, I've been asking you guys for alot of these lately!!



1.our tenants are supposed to sign the lease tomorrow

2. they are the nicest people and we'd totally hang out with them

3. our friends coming tomorrow to help us fix the house

4. it's all crazy right now...but it's going to work out

5. as hard as I know it's going to be for the boys leaving their friends...they are being such troopers...

I'm a Rock STAR!!

Ok not really...but I really really felt like one today when Angela (that would be Unity Queen extraordinaire) featured this card I made on her blog...
I used Amber's Monday sketch

Supplies Used:
Unity Stamp Co Nov KOM (the cutest little deer eva, and Senitments O Simple),
paper is My Minds eye.
Sorry I've been absent, I took an unexpected "blogcation"..

Just have gotten carried away here this past week
I worked a little extra
We have had some interest in the house and I think we might just get lucky...
say a little prayer for us, k?
Seriously, I don't know what else I could scrub, clean, polish, or paint in our house
it's a little nerve wracking
but that's just because my nerves are always wracked I think
At least that's what Rob tells me..
that I wouldn't be me if I didn't have myself all
"spun out and wound up over something"
thanks honey
I am really exited to share that I will be making Tshirts for the
Unity gang to wear for CHA...
