I have done that myself
or how about using the markers then change to blade & forget to increase the pressure

I think the bones need to be fatter so I may play around with it later - I'm going to use what I have for the big pic & journel box

I'm going to work on the sketch swap today. One of the girl scout troops in town is giving free car washes to leaders, so I'm going to go get that done this morning. Got to pick up Morgan at some point. She spent the night at my sister's, DH and I went to see The Fab Faux and out for dinner.

I need my car wash but I don't think I'm going to get it done today - I'm set on getting these bones done - journeling boxes are done, next up is the big frame but I think it will work with 4x6 since the shadow turned out bigger than I wanted
then I decided to do a paper piecing to go with it instead of more frames - so Mickey with a dino should work great

I wish DH would take me out more but it is big pain to get babysitters - got to plan a month ahead of time - I hope you had a great time

I don't think it will be the best carwash ever - the girls are 4th/5th graders. But it's the thought that counts, and I should support our other girls' events, right? I'll make the sacrifice of the dirt off my car.

We're very lucky that my family is so close and Morgan is a favorite of pretty much all my sisters. She's a good kid and they do adore her. Yes, yes I am her mother...DH and I don't do a lot of 'date nights.' This second week in a row is very much the exception.

You, Reddy, are my hero. I imagine it can be very difficult, but I don't think we're given more than we can handle. You, my friend, must be incredibly strong. Kudos!

I am hoping to be able to sit and scrap tomorrow. Plan on working on swaps. Just sitting here enjoying my tea and catching up here before I begin the last minute preparation for my mom's 60th birthday party.

Josh is home, and all his stuff! Spent most of last night getting it put away, just a few more items to store downstairs. On a positive note, he received his acceptance to Bridgewater State yesterday, so that is one less worry off my mind. So far all his classes from first semester transferred, just need to wait and see about his classes from this semester.

As I was lying in bed last night, it felt good to know he was right next door. I know I have to get used to him being "grown up" but it is a huge adjustment, espescially when he still says he "needs his mom".

Hope you all gets lots accomplished today and enjoy! I will try to pop in this evening if I don't crash. Off to start the days list.

anything is better than nothing - the dirt will come back later so it is nice to get it off sometimes.
Family is usually the first to help out - I just hate asking too much since I know my boys are a handful.
I never try to be a hero - just take alot of things one day at a time (sometimes it is one minute at a time)

Happy Birthday to your Mom - I'm sure it will be a great party
I'm not sure how I will feel when the boys leave next June but at least I know they will still be in the same town & I can visit often, growing up is hard on the parents, why aren't they still toddlers
congrats on him getting into another school - hopefully all will transfer

OK back to bones - why do I pick things that need details

Good Morning! I have done 4 pages and a card front this morning- I even made the card front from leftover items on my desk instead of putting them away. Next for scrapping I need to print out the photos I need to use for the other pages I have set-up- just need a few more photos for each. So I am off to search the laptop for the photos I need and then I will use photoshop to set them up and print. Hopefully I will have Dh's graduation album for us finished today then. Of course I need to find or buy an album to put the pages in but at least they will be done and I can move onto another project.

Rebecca

Enjoy the party and congratulations to Josh- glad to hear things are going well for him as he is making a transition.

I know you don't try to be a hero, but that's what makes you one! Whatever it takes to make it through...

Jennifer, happy you enjoyed your date! it is nice that your family can take Morgan when needed....my mom is good about taking Megan too, we never had anyone when we moved around alot, so Jim and I only got a date night a couple times a year...

Cassey, great news Josh got accepted at the new college will he be staying on campus again? sure will enjoy having his home for the summer! have fun at the party! Happy Birthday to your mom

Getting ready to scrap and catch up to hopefully meet by monthly goal of 40 - these last 10 days have been insane! On the 18th I get a call from my sister that my Mom has taken a turn for the worst and has less than a week on this earth (just a little background, my Mom has been battling Alzheimer's for the last 12 years. She is currently in the late end stages and in a hospice facility in north Georgia). So, I pack up and make the 12 hour drive. My brother in Ohio flies down, my brother in AZ is making his travel arrangments and my other 3 siblings live near Dad and Mom's house there in GA (I'm the oldest of 6!).

Well, it was determined that Mom more than likely had some sort of 48 hour bug. She was back to her current normal by Thursday or as Dad says, displaying her stubborn Irish blood. Iíll tell you what, she is fighting every step of the way to remain here with us. The Hospice nurses say that wives and mothers always put up a fight and donít want to leave so we all continue to ride the emotional rollercoaster...

I drove back home on Tuesday. If that wasn't enough to deal with already,
DH calls me on the way home to tell me the A/C has finally died (a South Florida MUST have) $3543 to get a new one. On Wednesday, my 2 year old washer is leaking and 2 year old dryer stops working. DH comes home from work upset that someone has clipped his right bumper pretty good on his Honda Pilot in the parking lot at work. AHHHHH. Yesterday the repairman fixes washer $85, states it will be $370 to fix dryer - I laugh! I go to Best Buy and purchase new dryer for $449 w/extended warranty. I'm ready for a new week and many Margarita's PLEASE....
