Wow, I need to use some stuff up.

Well my friend Eileen came over to get some of my many kits to work on tomorrow when we go to Pams Pals Benefit Crop (Benefits the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer research). And I knew I had a box or two of kits somewhere from when we moved, but I didn't realize I had so many! She took about 6 or 7 off my hands. I also found yet another box of mini books, yes, I said mini books.

For those of you that don't follow, I have two rubbermaid tubs full of mini books. And another box full aparently! Wow!

Lookie! Lookie!

I made a new background! No, really I just downloaded a free one and followed directions! Hopefully it will stay pretty!

Getting this picture thing down again!

This is an album I did with a switch plate. I was going to teach this, but it didn't work out. I may make another one (or 9) since I have a bunch of these plates now! LOL Or maybe teach a class with some updated papers, these are kind of old.

One of the inside pages. This book has lots of pockets and tags

Saturday Adventures!

Ya know, I have lived in Dallas my whole life and only been to a couple of the "sites" aka touristy stuff. Been to the Dallas Arboretum a couple of times and the School Book Depository Kennedy Museum; that's it. Well today Randy said "what do you want to do today"; all I could think of was shopping or a movie (I know real creative). So I asked him what he had in mind. Long story short we went to the Dallas World Aquarium, nope never been before. It was really cool! Got lots of cool scrapping pictures of bats, sharks, funny looking sea horses, manatee's and the Mayan dancers were really cool! Oh and lots of Flamingo pics! I will post some pics later, wore out the camera it needs juice.

Later I will post pics of a mini book I made about the Remember When retreat 2010. Not quite completely finished, but the cover is done and most of the pages, need to make some tags and journal then it will be complete.

Today is laundry day, yuck! So I better get to sorting!

What a weekend!

Whew! What a weekend. Our plans were to stay home and hang out with a friend that is in town from Tulsa this weekend. I had plans to get lots of scrapping done and clean some house, do some laundry, etc. Well, not much of any of that happened. I got home Friday at 6 to a hot house. Yep, the AC went out again. Called the landlord and after a second call to the landlord the AC guy finally called. Around 10:30 pm Dude showed up and said the compressor was shot and he would be back first thing in the AM with a new unit. Well, Saturday around one pm we called said AC guy to see where in the heck he is. By the way, it was damn hot in here by that time and we were cranky due to loss of sleep (it was hot in here at night too). AC guy said that the parts house wanted to charge an extra $250 to open on a holiday weekend. My brother (he could have fixed/installed it for me) says they closed at Noon on Saturday and AC guy didn't get there in time to buy the unit. So AC guy brings out a "back up" unit and installs it; but they didn't bring enough freon to fill it up. Said they would go get some and be back in an hour. We went out to run some errands and hang out with out of town friend to let the house cool off. When we got home it was warm in the house. Brother said that the unit froze up because it didn't have enough freon in it. Called AC guy again, said his guys would be back first thing in the AM to fix. Sunday around 1pm, no AC guys. Called the AC guy to see where in the F they are. (yes we are getting tired of this). Said his guys would be heading out here in about an hour, said they would call us when they were on their way. So we went to breakfast, then to Starbucks to stay cool and mess around with stuff. They called and said they would be here in about thrity minutes. An hour and fifteen minutes later they finally show up. We finally have AC, slept really good last night. It was kind of cold in here, had to snuggle and turn the AC up when I got up. Tomorrow they are supposed to get a new unit and install it. We will see how that goes.

I did get to scrap a little, I finished one layout and used my Pirate Ship die on it. I still need to scan it so I will have to post it later. I also started another layout and am almost finished with it. Off to finish that one and hopefully start on my Halloween box for the swap I am in.
