See I told you I was going to post something else today.
I have been a scrapping fool today. So far I have made 4 cards and 2 layouts.
This one is for the August Sketch Crazy sketch #2 at Sketches4you. I used a picture I took on our RV trip to OK last week.
The kids were in the upper bunk of the RV playing behind the curtain. They really had a good time on our trip. It was a "last hurrah" for them before they start back to school on Monday.
I scrap lifted the ribbon idea from Teresa Jaye's blog...you should go check her out. She has tons of great ideas on her blog. http://teresajaye.blogspot.com/
Okay, that's all for now..lol I want to get back to scrapping...more later...
Happy Saturday. My children and I arrived home late yesterday from our trip back to Oklahoma. The drive was pretty smooth and the kids were pretty good so it was all in all a satisfying trip.
Now to get back into my regular mode of scrapping and posting my creations! I am planning to finish up here on the computer and scrap for a few hours and then post something for you to enjoy. So come back in a few hours and see what I made.
I am really in the holiday mood and starting to "feel" fall even though I live in Vegas were it is SUPER HOT! lol
I received several fun scrappy things for my birthday last week and can't wait to go make something with them. Plan to see flowers...tons of flowers...because I got tons of flowers for my bday! LOL
I want to thank everyone who sent me such kind birthday wishes and for everyone who joined in on my TH blog candy giveaway and pledged to follow me. I will do my best to make your visits to my blog worthwhile!

I made it to Oklahoma and spent the day moving someone...
The car I am driving has no air conditioner working in it and it is 100+ degree F here!! Super hot day - I thought I was going to melt! lol
I drove here in my RV and it is a little cumbersome to drive around so I am borrowing the hot car! lol
I am too tired today to scrap but wanted to let you know that my friend, Denise-
is having an i-rock giveaway on her blog.
The funny thing is that I saw the i-rock at the store and rushed and bought it for her (and me) and then popped it in the mail....but since it is my birthday this coming week she saw it at her store and bought me an i-rock and then came to visit and realized that she now had extra i-rocks! lol (great minds and all that...lol)
So, one of you guys could score an i-rock from our eagerness!!
I LOVE mine and I am sure you would love it too. Go check her blog out anyway...she rocks it everyday!!
More scrapping tomorrow...

It is a nice day here in Las Vegas...by nice, I mean sunny and hot and the kids are in a good mood! lol
I made this card yesterday. I used the Sassy Lil Sketches card challenge sketch which I LOVE! And I did an Ink Challenge for Denise's Let's Ink at Sketches4you.
It is a fun technique. You emboss and then ink over it.... The first one I did I used orange paper and it turned out very UGLY! lol I think re-doing it with white paper helped.
I like how it turned out...what do you think? Have you done this type of technique before?
I am working on another card right now...so keep your eye out for it... It is for a challenge to make an differently shaped card. Now aren't you curious??
