Your Fans

One more page I did with my friends about a week ago.. I had a little bit more to finish of this one by myself at home. This is My family at my daughter's County Reading Festival.. She won 1st place out of her school and got to represent her school in the County Festival.. The County Festival wasnt a contest-it was more of just a showing of the best of each school and they all got big trophy's. SO me-My parents, my brother-and his girlfriend-and Kandis' boyfriend all came to watch her perform. She is such a drama queen. SO this is her favorite thing to do-perform for everyone..
The bird on here we cut out with cuttlebug-we used a doolie for the while piece on the bottom-just a paper one. I did my journaling on a card-I actually copied the card since I only had 1=incase I want to use it again one day. Then I used journaling strips for the names on the side.. My friend gave me the big peachy flower-she had tons of these that she had bought in packages at the GoodWill. Who would of thought huh-lol. The cream ribbon down the side is a piece of ribbon I got a Louisville or Charlotte CKC. We all used a piece of ruler ribbon on the top-then we each picked a strip of something to lay above it-i picked the stars and inked them all up. I got my tiny blue butterfly at Louisville CKC. I love them. I used some orange stickers for my title. Then just used a piece of patterned paper that was in this huge My Minds Eye pack that matched my background paper.. They both were out of the same pack-inked them all up...
This was my favorite page of the 4 I made with my friends that day!!!!!

ignore my background and header-lol

Ok So some of U may have gotten the same note as me on the top of your blog tonight-Your background will be deleted by Fri 23-if not removed.. SO I am trying to change mine up.. I found a background I liked-but I can not seem to find any backgrounds that have matching headers-ugh!!! This header would even be ok-If I could fix it up and add a scrapbook page to it or something.. but I am not digging it-haha.. SO for now-just ignore it.. I love the summer swimsuits though-hehe.. Oh how I wish summer had 3 more months to go=-and June was starting over.. school will be starting in a month and oh how I ate to see it all come to a end-oh well I am rambling now.. ta ta!!!

a day with HILLBILLIES in Pikeville

Here is a 2 page layout I did on Monday. I love to do 2 page layouts-becuz' I get so many pictures on them, and everyone knows that I take a lot of pictures of every occasion. My daughter went to a pool party with some friends Monday so after I dropped her off me and Wendy did this page.. This is a lot of pictures from April 2010-at the 37th Annual Hillbilly Days in Pikeville, Ky. It takes us about 30 minutes to get there. It is just like a big fair/craft thing. Tons and tons and tons of food-soo many rides-then crafts and other stuff to purchase.. This made me and my daughters 1st time there.. My Mom had not ever went either.. SO she went with us and we took my daughter's lil boyfriend-then Wendy and her son were already there when we got there. Then my brother's girlfriend went with us too.. The kids rode rides for a couple of hours. It was so hot-me and Kim sat under shaded tree in a park and ate yummy food and listened to bluegrass music(which I hate by the way). hehe
We cut several circles out from the paper and put patterned paper behind it-like the stars & flowers- U buy that in 12X12 sheets. Then we just randomly places circle pictures about the pages. I did all my journaling around each of the circles-just explaining everything we did-ate-and bought that day.hehe.. This will be a great 2 page layout for my daughter to look back on one day-and remember this day by.. We got the idea out of a recent scrapbook magazine we had got. I forget which one though..
Here is one of the hillbilly trucks that was riding around the town that day.. Later in the day they had a huge parade.. I would of luved to have seen that.. I can imagine how funny it was..
Ok-I scrapbooked the top half of this on my page-but I think U need to see the whole picture to see the panties.. I wanted to get a picture of the guys.. Well he said ok can someone hold your water and take your camera-we want u in it. I say yea-so he reaches in his pocket and pulls out this big bloomers-and says get in-we are all dying laughing.. My legs are about the color of paper-haha.. This is just sooo funny..
This is my Mom coming down the house of mirrors.. Holding someone's yummy lemonade.. Everybody went in and they didnt realize u had to ride the slide to get down. It was soo funny-the slide was sooo slick-they would about fall when they got to the bottom-haha
Here is me-Wendy-Kandis-and Cory.
This is Kandis and her marshmellow gun she bought... and she was shooting me like crazy before we could even leave that place-haha. It is just made out of pipes and painted-LOL
Most people go to Hillbilly Days for the food.. Wendy bought these potatoes that were fried-they were almost like potato chips or something.. She was sharing with us all.. Mom and Mikey were enjoying. My favorite thing besides the homemade lemonade was my funnel cake.. I love them.. Me-Kandis-Cory-Kim all sat in the park and pigged out with them.. hehe

Hope U enjoyed my page and a few pictures!!!!

Hands UP!!

Here is another page I made with my friends the other night when we all go together to scrapbook. We used Wendy's new Hot Off the Press-Easy Stars Template to make the stars on page.. These pictures are of Kandis, her boyfriend Cory, and Wendy's son Mikey on the scrambler at Hillbilly Days in Pikeville, Ky.. Mikey is the tiny one beside Kandis that U can barely see his head and then just barely see his hands in the next picture.
Super simple page if u get your hands on the Easy Star Template coming out very soon!! hehe
Be watching at your local scrapbook stores-lol.

Friends-Homecoming 2010

My daughter and her best friends at the Homecoming Dance-March 2010. This is Kandis -n-Cory with her. Then Kandis very best friend-Rissa and her date-Trevor.. I made this page along with some of my friends the other night when we all got together and cropped.. We all did this page-but of course by the time we got it done-they all looked different..
We again used my friend, Wendy Baisden's NEW Hot Off the Press-Easy Stars Template for our stars. We layered tons of paper. I added a few journaling strips to mine. Then some chipboard letter stickers. I had to ink everything I had tonight for some reason?? hehe Then I distressed all my layered paper. We punched out some circles to make the yellow circle around the whole page. Then I just added me some jewels to make it pretty.. Very bright and fun page!!!

Daddy & Me

I got to do some scrapbooking with some of my friends last night.. It was really fun!! There was 6 of us crammed into my friends scrapbook room-hehe.. We all did the same pages-I think they were speed scrapping-becuz in less then 4 hours we did 4 pages.. Way more then I could ever do by myself.. I was still not finished with the pages when I left.. Still putting my own little touches on them here at my house.. One of the girls has having a hard time with all the laying we were doing with a bunch of different pattern paper-so we were picking pages to do out of a magazine(just scraplifting)-hehe.. So Connie picked this page to do-Notice there is only 1 piece of pattern paper on this one-HA!!! She was so funny!!! She was stressed out all night over all that pattern paper.. If she scrapbooks very long with us though-she will be piling that pattern paper all on top of each other!!!
This is a page of my girl and my husband in March of this year. Kandis got 6th grade homecoming attendant -and her Daddy escorted her out onto the floor during the Court.. I love this.. We went and got Daddy a cute lil gold shirt and matching tie and shirt to match Kandis.. I love the way he had his arm around her.. I love when they walk out onto the floor when they anounce her name-and her Daddy is beside her holding her arm-Makes me sooo proud. I can see how proud he is too!!!
Super simple page-I used a 5X7-a strip of pattern paper-a piece of ribbon and a piece of lace on the bottom... I cute cream piece of rick rack and a green flower and this cute big bling for the middle ( that Connie gave me) -I need some big bling like that!!!! Used some big cardstock stickers for my letters-a stamp for my journaling. I journaled up the side of the picture. Then finally one patterned corner piece.. Anyone could whip this up in NO TIME!!! try it out

Our Puggles

Our Beagle dog, Sassy, had 6 new babies on June 23.. My daughter has been sooo excited and waiting all summer for these.. We were so excited when she had 6. She didn't have normal Beagle puppies though-she had Puggles.. If U have never heard of a Puggle, it is mix breed between a Beagle breed and a Pug dog.. So our red and brown Beagle was breed with my cousin Mark's Pug, Jay Bo, which is solid black.. There are 5 boys and 1 girl in the litter. The girl is black-then 2 more black boys and 2 brown and black boy ones.. These puppies are the cuttiest things ever.. Of course-all puppies are-haha.

A Puggle is a short-haired, with a wrinkly face and a stocky body. They have a short nose, and a slender body, like beagles. Puggles average about 20 pounds and stand not taller than 15 inches (38.1 cm) at the shoulder. One of the biggest benefits of a Puggle is the fact that their noses are not as flat as a Pug's, so they do better in hot weather, and have less breathing problems.

The picture above is the day the puppies were born-June 23, 2010.. They are 16 days old today.

Here Kandis is holding one of the brown and black babies just born.. They were sooo tiny..
Here is Sassy, their Momma, and her puppies on July 13.. They were only 10 days old.. They still had their eyes shut but it didnt stop a few of them from finding their Mommy... Sassy is sooo good with them...

Here are all the puppies snuggled up-10 days old.. It was July 3rd, 2010.

These pictures were taken today, July 9, 2010.. This is Kandis' pick of the litter.. She is gonna keep this lil boy. She has named him Tank.. She brought him inside to visit for a few minutes today.. He liked it as much as we did-lol He is the biggest out of the bunch... All the puppies eye's opened the other day.. so now they are even cuttier-haha.. If that can even happen..

Tank found a comfy spot on my lap.. He fits in the palm of my hand.. awww

Then he decided he loved this spot on my chest even more.. U just cant resist a puppy...
So we are gonna sell the other 5 puppies for $150 each.. That is not a bad price either.. They will have been wormed and be up to date on their shots when anyone gets them. I have been looking online too and they sell anywhere from $300-$750.. WOW... If you want one and live close to me-let me know.. hehe

Happy 4th

My all American Girl.. Kandis was all smiles for me yesterday-on the 4th.
Hope everyone had a blessed 4th of July week-end.. Probably most people that work have today off too. SO if u do-hope U are enjoying a extra day of relaxing... I had a great week-end. Full of Family-Food-Fireworks and pool. We have had 100 degree weather here for days in WV. It doesnt look like a cool down anytime soon. So if U are out no better way to kill the heat then a dunk in the pool. Here are some photos of our holiday week-end.
Cute rock that my Kandis painted for her Papaw and Grandma.. It looks really pretty sitting in their flower bed..

This is my Daddy and his brother Ralph(my Uncle Ralph) playing basketball with my lil cousin Kaden. My Dad and Uncle just put our basketball rim back up in the last few days. It has been down since last May when we got flooded really bad..
This is my 1st cousin Jeffrey (Kaden's daddy) and my daughter Kandis.. Oh what goofs they are when they get together... They must always be daredevils at the pool-hehe Here they are diving - when Kandis was attached to Jeffrey's shoulders-haha
Here is a few of my family at my Uncle Paul's house getting ready to watch some fireworks.. We had a great time-only had 1 big scare when one of the BIG fireworks turned over and came popping right at the porch.. haha The porch cleared really fast.. No injuries-just a lot of laughs.. hehe
Kandis and her Daddy-My sweeties. My hubby has not felt good for days.. poor fella.
Here is Kandis with her favorite thing-LONG sparklers.. These things are the best-and are soo much better then the normal-short ones-no fear of burning yourself with these things!!
These are fun too. I wouldnt let Kandis do these last year.. U just hold then and they shoot out big fire cracker things.. So of course she had to pose for the camera-lol

Then watching all the fireworks was fun too..

Hope everyone had as much fun as we did.. Hope everyone had enough hamburgers and hotdogs and watermelon too-hehe..
