i've decided i am in my "one photo period" like picasso's blue period (or something like that..?) lately i don't have many pictures to scrapbook. i usually have like 3 or 4 pictures on each page but lately i've been doing just one picture. it's expensive to do it this way. i guess i'm just using my favorite pictures so i'm ok with it. it's just not what i usually do. to figure out something to do on a 12x12 piece of paper with one picture is hard for me.
anyways the paper i used was the pink paislee office lingo line again. i guess for NSD this saturday i'll have to stock up on this line, once again.
p.s. i also have to figure out another way to get these pics. uploaded onto the computer. taking a picture makes it glare and the scanner isn't big enough...boooo

this page i did using the new Pink Paislee line which i LOVE. i bought a bunch of it this weekend. the picture is from the 4th of July in 2003. it's a picture that i won something at the fair. i was 15 when i took the picture. i think i won like $10. once again the main subject is Miss Mary. i love taking her picture back when she was this age, and now.

then since i am such an amazing sister i went above and beyond my duties and made him a digital scrapbook page. i know, i am too generous.
haha he would probably poke my eyes out if he saw this.
here are some of the other senior pics we took that day (then i, being super, photoshopped them, just going above and beyond as usual):

this is a bloody, freaking, stupid stump of a tree that we ripped from the dirty, dirty ground. let me tell you what, all those little baby stumps that dug their way all around the main stump made this almost impossible. but we did most of it using our bear hands. it was a lot of work but i made a deal with my dad that he would give me $40 if i got it out of the ground (he obviously had doubts i could do it, he said it would take all day..pishaaaaa) so i get $30 and sam gets $10 and a free popcorn coupon (haha). and i just bought photoshop elements 6.0 (since i'm too cheap to buy CS3) with some of that hard, sweaty, achy earned money ....BTW, this is a disgusting picture and should not be looked at closely. seriously. eww. what am i thinking? remember i was out there pulling on this stupid stump for an hour and a half.
so onto more important things
last night my friends came over and we had a "scrap-a-thon" slash we scrapbooked for about 6 hours. here is the one sole page i managed to get done. i tried and tried to work on other projects and so i got other things partly done but not completed.
here is another page i got started, obviously it's not done yet... soon. maybe.
and finally here is some of the "blog candy" it's nothing too exciting. it's two minibooks, 2 little clipboard things, an already made "cherish" envelope mini book and my personal favorite, a stamp set that says, "you light up my life" with a guy who has a lampshade on his head....there may be a couple extra things i throw in at the last minute but so far here it is.
so watch out for my next post to see how you can win this AMAZING (??) prize.

to make a LOOOONNGGG and confusing post shorter, watch out for the next couple days, i have no idea when the 50th post will even be. i'm new at this ok. but know, you will want a piece of this blog candy pie....maybe. i guess it depends on what i get for the prizes! i like to keep people guessing.

that would be $17 worth of ribbon right there, but i only spent $8. so that gives me hope. also $16 worth of cuttlebug dies, but again i only spent $8. woot woot.
here are some little thingy-ma-jigs i made the other night, they are supposed to be coasters but i have to put felt on the bottom of them still. i used rub-ons and tiles then sprayed them with some good smelling spray stuff to seal them.
here they are all bundled up nicely. i have absolutly no idea what i am going to use them for since i don't use coasters. and finally my newest project i am working on, operation burp clothes. i know, pretty swanky. they are driving me nuts, i have to go back and iron them, AGAIN, then do another stich around the outside to close up the little hole i had to leave to turn them right side out. i probably won't get these things done for a while. but i got $15 worth of fabric for only $6. i'm all about cutting cost/spending way to much anyways.

for a real cause, you can go to Freerice.com and test your vocabulary knowledge, each word you get right donates 20 grains of rice. WARNING: it's very addicting!
