Tagged. by Alicia. god love ya.

okay. I've been tagged by my buddy Alicia. the idea is to post 7 random facts about yourself and tag 7 other people by commenting on their blogs. so here I go. (thinking up new random things is hard sometimes!)

1. I was a varsity cheerleader in high school (basketball and football) but you would never know it by my personality now.

2. I got pregnant with my first child right after my 21st birthday. :)

3. I played the clarinet for 8 years, then gave lessons for a year after that privately. I have been taking piano lessons now for 2.5 years.

4. I have terrible road rage, and just being in traffic gets my blood boiling.

5. I only have two close girlfriends that live near me. (they have been friends since grade school and I work with both of them) the rest of my friends are online.

6. I don't eat breakfast. hardly ever.

7. I used to collect beanie babies like a crazy person. now I have no idea what to do with most of them!

Okay. I tag....Nancy, Jenn, Rachel, Michelle, MichelleS, Julie, Emilie.


quick catch up!

Trying to get some layouts uploaded. (for some reason I can never type on top of the pictures...so strange.) anyways. I've been scrapping, but bad at bloggin! yikes! the first two layout are using My Favorite Memories kits. yummy bright bold colors!! and the second two are using Scrappy Giraffe's April Kit. so wonderful, and whimsical to use! I can't wait to create more layouts with it! as always TFL!


a couple of new ones.

I love the new kit that I just received from The Scrapbook Site! www.thescrapbooksite.com these layouts are done with Kit #3 - Marina Rd. it's a mix of sweetwater and new Heidi Grace papers. so fun! and AND...this is huge. both of these layouts are using older pictures that I've had forever...San Juan from 2003 and Allison's musical from last year. love that these papers work with everything! TFL!
