May Challange *My OCD*

How many times a day do I close a door or push in a chair. To many to count which leads to my ocd. It makes me crazy. Now it is a game to them to see how long it will take me to close the door or whatever else they leave open or push in a chair. Sometimes I try not to look but I can't help myself. Weird I know.

At that time I will draw the weekly winner and the grand prize. So let's try to keep our mojo going for 1 more week. Here is today's prize and the winner is Christine. Congrats and I will get that in the mail to you.

May Challange *Favorite Childhood Memory*

As you have all probably noticed over the last several months of Megan and I's posts we had VERY SPECIAL grandparents. Last Tueday would have been our Grandma's birthday (Megan actually did her post on her birthday) so I thought it would be fitting to do my fav. childhood memory with her. My Grandparents would come and see me every summer while I lived in Alabama. I could hardly wait for them to get there. Every summer for 10 yrs. they made the trip. And those are def. memories that I will cherish. Everything on this page is Colorbok. The pictures are copies of old polaroids so they look better in person than they do on here.

Happy Birthday

I am so excited. My mother-in-law doesn't get to go shopping much anymore so after Bible Study today Steph and I took her to Hobby Lobby and Joanne's. While we were in Joanne's I looked down and there was one copy of the new Page Map's sketch book. I was like omg I really want this book and Elaine (bless her heart) said would you like it for your birthday. Would I like it how about I would love it. So happy early b-day to me.And thank you Wendell & Elaine. It has over 100 pages of sketches and examples. And pull out cards in the back that you can take with you to crops. Can you tell that I am excited?

May Challange *Black and White*

I love Spring. It is my favorite time of the year. Everything is budding and growing and it is time to get in the fields and plant.(if it ever stops raining.) Steve was getting ready to plant the other day so I went out and took some pics. I love John Deere colors. I thought that black and white would be a good contrast with the bright colors. The paper is Stampin' Up. The stickers are Reminisce. The rub-ons are Scrap Within Reach. And the letters are Martha Stewart and Thickers.

May Challange *Count Your Blessings*

This was an emotional post for me. So many things have happened but I have so many blessings. My favorite quote is: Life may not be the party we hoped for but while we're here we might as well dance. So true but through it all we have something to be thankful for. So always try to count your blessings and keep dancing.

May Challange *April Showers bring May Flowers*

I took Zach flower shopping last Friday and let him pick out a flower for his Mom for Mother's Day. He had a hard time deciding but he finally made a choice and we brought it home and planted it. He was so proud of himself. Paper is:Scrap Within Reach & Stampin' Up. The transperancy is Stampin' Up. The butterfly is EK Success. The felt flower is Martha Stewart and the title is Thickers.

Week #1 Winner

It was brought to my attention that there was some confusion on when I would be drawing the weekly winners. I am sorry I was not clear on that. When I said Fri. to Fri. I meant I would be drawing each week on Fri. since we had started on Fri. I am really sorry if not everyone understood. I had Zach draw the winner today and had posted it earlier but I wanted to clear things up with everyone so I am reposting it. So here is this weeks prize and winner. Can't wait to see what you all come up with next week.

And the winner is Christine.....

May Challange *Blue Collar Comedy*

I actually think this could qualify for more than 1 of the Blue Collar Comedy guys but I picked Jeff Foxworthy. Just looked like a redneck thing to do. Jonathon and Tony have always managed to do some crazy things together. From jumping out of the loft in the barn to muddin under the 280 bridge to this day when they hooked up a shopping cart on skis to the 4-wheeler and pulled Tony around. At least Tony wore a helmet. The pictures aren't the greatest because they were taken with a phone but I think you can still get the idea. The paper is We R Memory Keepers. The letters are Thickers, Making Memories, and some cut out with my Slice. The tags are Stampin' Up.

May Challange*Anything but Scrapbooking*

Yikes Sunday is Mother's Day. How did that sneak up on me? So I took this oppurtunity to do my Anything but Scrapbooking Challange and made my Mother's Day cards. I got my inspiration from Mojo Monday's sketch shown at the bottom of this post. The paper is Basic Gray and Stampin' Up. The canvas, rub-ons and ribbon are Stampin' Up.
