My Crazy 8's

Hey all! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Mine wasn't too bad. I did some scrapping, a whole lot of World of Warcraft playing (still on the lookout for other people who scrap and play WoW.. are you out there? lol) and whole lot of NOT CLEANING. Oops! I'm pretty sure I was supposed to take down my Christmas tree and clean up my scrap stuff. Speaking of my scrap stuff, I would like to report that it has now taken over both the kitchen table and the coffee table. Brandon now has nowhere to eat... and I'm not gonna lie, he's a bit cranky about it! lol But he still ooh's and aah's when I create new layouts and projects, and loves me regardless of my crazy scrap obsession :) In my final piece of scrapbooking news, there was a cyber crop yesterday and today over at Coordinates Collections and one of the challenges they had going on was to scrap a quote by someone. I, of course, chose my fabulous sister to scrap! I chose a goofy pic of her and scrapped one of her best blond moments (although she's not blond!)

Basically the quote is from the time when my sister thought she'd come up with a fabulous idea for 'individual sized servings of potato chips' ... until she noticed us all staring at her. I politely responded with "You mean like the little bags you can get in EVERY SINGLE STORE!!" lol Ah, it was a great moment, and I truly love to harass her about it (I love you Jen!), she will be so pleased that it is immortalized on a scrap page now! Haha! NOTE: sorry about the crap photo of the layout, I took it at night since I needed to submit the layout for the challenge by midnight, and it was already dark. I would have retaken it tomorrow for the blog, but we all know i'm lazy and i'd probably forget :P

As I was doing my daily blog surfing today I noticed this little doo-dad over at Kerry's blog. She tagged anyone who wanted to, so I figured I would do it, since it's late at night and I have nothing more to say :P

I'm supposed to now tag 8 people, but I won't, I just want as many people who want to do it, to link me up, so I can read them :) Jen, this does mean you :P

I will leave you with my last 2 365 pics.

The simple pleasures in life... using the laptop in bed, with a warm, soft cat on your lap! :)

I'm not sure how I scrap in this mess... but I love, love, love it!!

Hope you all have a great Monday!

Hey Gil,

Reference the scrap mess...try leaving it there for another month then convincing Brandon that you need your own room so the mess is out of sight and out of his way (this is how I got my sewing room :P even if it is in the dungeon (aka basement)). Thanks for sharing the tag.
