Then came the inspiration .... If I had a pair of girlie flip flops I should probably paint my toe nails. That meant I need to buy some polish. Should I get white, brown or green. (Insert light bulb here) I know I'll paint them camo!!!! Finley I found a way to be girlie and myself at the same time.
You should have seem my husband helping me pick out polish. I wish I would have taken a picture of him in the make-up aisle with several shade of polish in his hands. Oh well.

I couldn't decide if I wanted to use Larry the Cable Guys "That's funny" or "Git-R-Done" then I took this picture and I knew I could use both. There is no names on the picture to protect the innocent (and the guilty too).
Please don't hate me, I just couldn't help myself.

Flowers - This was a quick digi page I did in a hurry on Thursday.
Update - Sorry again these are late. I had a reaction to some of the local anesthesia used during the test. I got an immediate migraine, my sinuses filled with fluid so I also had a sinus headache. My had so much pressure in my head that my eyes were constantly watering, my nose was like a hose, and all my teeth ached. I could feel each and every tooth throbbing. All this on top of that migraine. Basically I was miserable. To top it off I went to the test alone, so I had to drive my self home. I was never so glad to get home. I'm feeling a little better. The migraine is gone, my teeth stopped throbbing and my sinuses are starting to drain. Now I just feel like I have head cold and I look like Rudolph. The good news is that there is no blockage in my throat and my voice box is fine. Earlier test showed I have a hernia, acid reflux and a dysfunctional esophagus. So with a little acid controller, some weight loss and a few lifestyle changes it can get things under control.

The G.P. is a "Braggables Bag" with some scrapping goodies inside. I bought this bag in Feb. (and bought another style for myself, of course). On of the so called goodies in the bag is a bunch of patterned paper. I must admit these papers are some of my white elephants. I new you all were so good with challenges that I decided who ever won them would know just what to do with them. They now belong to the winner, so she can do with them as she pleases (use them, trash them, make challenges with them or even make confetti out of them). There is a pack of Thickers in the bas and all of the other item are from local craft stores clearance isles.
If you would like to see the entire line of "Braggable" bags visit their web site at www.braggables.com . They give 10% of their net profit to Pediatric Cardiology Research. They have great products and generous hearts too
And the winner is.........
Congrats G.P. winner. I'll be in touch to decide how to deliver your prize. Week 4 and the G.P. winners were drawn by Martie a friend from work. Thanks Martie for your help and once again thanks to all who participated.
Congrats week 4 winner.

Here is my bucket list. This was harder that I thought because I found out that my list is always changing.
I think I need to go and ink all the edges.

Inspired by a board game – Do a layout that is inspired by a board game. Example: you could use a checkerboard background, you could embellish a page with a game piece or monopoly money, or you could do a page about your family’s game night. Let your imagination run wild.
I was inspired by the game "clue" when I was a little girl. I loved the thought of a house with hidden passages and having a mystery to solve. Patterned papers are from Stampin' Up, Fancy Pants, Card stock from Stampin' Up, adhesive from Xyron. I must confess the photos were not taken by me...but they captured the correct feeling I was looking for. I don't know who the photographers are but whoever you are ...Thank you!
What you may not know about me is that I grew up being scared on a regular basis. My father and his siblings grew up in a haunted house so they always enjoyed scaring the tar out of us kids, so the thought of a spooky house was normal to us. Maybe that should be the subject of my "It runs in the family page"

I'm sharing my incomplete wordle layout. There will be a pic on the black mat and three pics on the dotted strip. I'll share my finished lo in the next fer days. The supply list is simple. Paper is from Stampin' Up, Adhesive from Xyron and every thing else is form American Crafts (Thickers). In the past I wordled at the above mentioned site, printed it on card stock and added to my layout. This time I just went to my Thicker stash and let things fly.
This lo is for Pope Creek Archery's spring shoot. We shoot once a week for six weeks and it starts tomorrow evening. Soooooo........ I'll have pics late tomorrow night to complete this lo.
I'm not going to have my normal partner "Ginger" this time and I'm sure going to miss her. :0( She stuck by me last year when I was absolutely horrible. I thinks she just needs a break from me :0, but she says she has a conflicting commitment with her daughter. So for this shoot my husband is going to be my partner and Ginger and I will be a team again in the fall.

A Monochromatic page – Do a layout using different shades of the same color. Example: baby blue, sky blue, navy blue and midnight blue. You can use one neutral color (white or brown or black). No other colors are allowed.
Here's my take on the monochromatic challenge. I did use brown as my neutral. This page is of my husbands paternal grandmother (Megans Great Grandmother). I think she was beautiful.
The papers are from SandyLion , Stampin'up and Walmart. The ribbons are Fancy Pants, flowers are Bazzill, Thickers from American Crafts, and the buttons are from my Grandmas sewing stash.
I will put the journaling in the folder after I get done with my genology reasearch on Hubbies ansestors.
With the scraps from my lo I did another 6x6 for my "100 things I Love" album (remember the Peeps Bunny page). This photo was taken at my grandmothers house. They tell me I was telling my little cousin why she would need a purse when she got big like me.

Squeeker says the winner is...........................................Megan. Congratulations! Don't want to put the glass in the mail so I'll be in touch.

It has been calling me so I had better give it away before I open it myself.
I had Martie a friend from work draw the winner and the winner is .... Christine N. . Congratulations, I'll get your prize on its way tomorrow. Hope you'll let us see your purse when it's finished.
A Page with out Pattern Paper, unless you make it your self – Do a lo that starts with only solid color paper. You can leave it solid or you can turn it into patterned paper by stamping, doodling, painting, printing, etc.to turn it into you very own designed pattern paper.
I had fun with this one. While watching TV I did a little playing with markers. I felt like a little girl again. Every thing is done free hand. Parts are scrap lifted and parts are embellishment opportunities. The paper (solid of course) and the markers are all Stampin' Up. Colored staples are from my desk and the star brad and large Rick rack are from the stash. On the far right side of the layout there is a wheel that spins so the word in the window can be changed. There are words like insanity, clumsiness, embarrassment, goofiness and others. I plan to display this on my desk and change the picture and word as we do crazy things.
Oh by the way the week one winner has been drawn. I haven't taken the picture of the prize yet so I'm going to make you wait until this afternoon to find out who the winner is and what they have won. Sorry I'll be better prepared next week.
