My Last Entry of 2010




The LO is my Holiday Song LO for Scrappin'-'n'-Chattin' (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scrappin-n-chattin/). I chose the title "O Christmas Tree" because of the obvious, the Christmas tree pics. Both pics are of my Grandmama James' Christmas tree. I'm not sure what year. I made this LO while watching the Military Bowl- ECU Pirates vs Maryland Terps. MD beat ECU badly, so the scrappin' won. I did look up when a MD player was injured and every TD that was made! I don't understand the full concept of football, but watch it occasionally!

We had a blizzard the day after Christmas and the next 2 pics are what I was able to take of it! It was blowing in my face so much that it was hard to see just to walk around the yard to see what I wanted to take a pic of! It was undeniably cold, also! On top of that I have been sick and didn't need to be out in it for very long. We didn't make a snowman it was too cold! We didn't go anywhere Sunday as a matter of fact I was the only one to go outside! It's still lingering on the ground and will most likely melt tomorrow. It's supposed to be 60 Friday and Saturday!

The last picture is of our Christmas tree. It was up for about a week and the cat knocked it over. It was taken down this past Monday! Luckily, when the cat knocked the tree over only one ornament was broken! A lot of the ornaments fell in a cactus garden, too, but none got dirt on them! I put the tree back up after punishing the cat. I put him in time-out in the bathroom with his litter box! I must say that decorating the tree the first time was fun! When I put the tree back up, I had to put it back together. It fell apart, because it's artificial and prelit luckily! I tried to put as many ornaments away from the botton as possible, but it didn't work. The cat loved gnawing on the branches and twisted it when he did so! I'm glad Christmas is over in that aspect! The tree was on a coffee table that the cat sits on to look outside at the birds. He couldn't forget that the tree was over his head and leave it alone! He was still gnawing on it when we took it down! We'll  have another year to look forward to the same thing again! LOL!

I have to work the next 2 days and won't have time to scrap, so this is going to be my last entry of the year! I'm only working 4 hours tomorrow afternoon and then 5 1/2 Friday afternoon. I have plans New Year's Eve to celebrate with a friend and am looking forward to it! So long until 2011! :)

My Take on Scraproom Blog's Sketch of the Week


I did this LO for Scraproom Blog (http://thescraproomblog.blogspot.com/) The title is "follow in His footsteps". It's in the top right corner under the sun turned diagonally.I chose that since Carson is a preacher! The journaling states that "Carson was the preacher at Clay City Christian Church from 2004-2009 in Clay City, IL." He's in his truck in the top left pic. He's still a preacher, but preaches in West Salem, IL at his home church now! His wife, Cing, was my roommate at Johnson Bible College from 1995-1996. They got married in 1997. I was a bridesmaid in their wedding. I had gone to visit them in 2006 when these pictures were taken. I'm not sure what the big purple bush is, I thought it was pretty, so I took a picture of it! I don't know flowers that well. The sticker in the middle says "God's Word gives light." I was just sitting here thinking and all of my roommates got married after they roomed with me except for one. The ones that did get married got married not long after we were roommates! My first roommate is still single and we still keep in touch. I have kept in touch with all my college roommates except one. I didn't mean to get off on a tangent! LOL! I also decided to use this LO as the Scraplift LO for Scrappin'-n-Chattin'. Here's the first LO I scrapped in 2006.
I like the newest LO better! :) There's too much on the older one! I no longer have the stencil I used on the older LO. My time is flying by. I have to be to work at 2. If you can't read anything on the last LO, just leave me a comment please. TFL!

24 Hour Challenge LO


I participated in a 24 Hr Challenge with Scrappin'-'n-Chattin' last night. It actually started at 9PM last night and ended at 9PM tonight. I made my LO last night before going to bed. I have included the sketch that was chosen for me to go by along with my LO. The journaling states that "These pics were taken at Johnson Bible College (JBC) Homecoming 2005. We were at Melissa's apartment, Seth's fiance at the time, they're now married. Andrea took the first pic on the far left. She got a hold of my camera! Andrea is in the middle pic. Cing is holding Zachary up and Andrea is surprised to see the camera in the last pic. Andrea is Peter & Amy Cain's oldest. Cing & I were roommates at JBC before she married Carson!" The ribbon is bobbin ribbon and was hard to glue down, but I did it! The paper has 1 Corinthians 13 written on it (but you can't see it) and a few cherubs. I decided to include the pic Andrea took because I thought it was a good pic even though she didn't know what she was doing! I think she was mocking me! LOL! The guys were playing cards at the table along with Melissa and Cing, Amy, and I played with the kids as well as took pics! Andrea and Zachary are a lot older now. Zachary wasn't quite a year in the pic, so he's about 6 now and Andrea is about 7 maybe 8. I also used this LO for a Child LO Challenge in Scrappin'-'n-Chattin'.

We had snow here in eastern NC tonight! We don't see snow this time of year very often so it was a treat to all of us! I tried to take a picture, but waited too late and it has already melted. It was pretty while it lasted! Have a great rest of the weekend! TFL!
