My loving friend Lori http://rememberme-lorip.blogspot.com/search?q made me the most cutest valentine eveah. She gave it to me on Tuesday and I was surprised. She even had it on this adorable French laundry hanger. Thank you so much You are A Doll... Love Ya.
I needed some scrap therapy so I did some layouts last night... I am in a much better mood thanks to my friend Lori and her always wise words. This first one is for Scrap Diner's Crop week white space challenge.
This next layout is for the Scrap Diner's Viva La Friday Challenge you where to do a layout about something that was missing in your life

OK so I am having a hard time right now with some things. Firstly scrapping, I just can't get motivated. I want to partake in the fun at Scrap -diner but just can't get motivated to do it. I see so many of the other peoples creations and mine looks like shit. OK well enough about that.... next my Dad yells at me last night on the phone while driving home from Pine cone Press Book Club. He is having problems with his Ex-Wife and her fat ass Daughter they keep harassing my Dad and his Lady friend Ernie and I simply made a comment and he yelled at me. (I know you are going to read this Dad) I try so hard for you acceptance all the time. It always seems like or I feel like I get put on the back burner for The Bitch Brandi. She is not even your flesh and blood. What I don't understand is you say you helped raise her that maybe true....but what about Richard? You never try there. You helped raise him....Hell he even has your last name. He is sick and dying. I know you feel sorry for Jonie and Brandi because they had a hard life....you forget I did too. I went through the same shit. I just decided to pull up my bootstraps and trudge on. I may have a somewhat nice home, a good husband, and wonderful kids, and a JOB!!!! But Dammit I Went through a lot of pain to get here. Just take some time and notice the good people please.
Here is a layout I did of Mr. B from his Thanksgiving play....

since I have been posted. Bad Blogger I am. Things have been so crazy around here. We had a great Christmas and a great New Year. I have slowly but surely been working on some projects. The first one is a poem My dad's lady friend wrote the poem and had me frame the poem and jazz it up.
These next works are for the upcoming Pinecone Press Book Club. I have made an altered piece for my Dad's Birthday and a couple of misc. items. I also made this mini book for my Dad and Ernie using My Minds Eye paper
SO I won another contest over at http://www.scrap-diner.com/ for the viva la friday contest. I did this layout for one of the weeks there. You were to make a wish list for Christmas. I also did some Basic Grey layouts for they were the featured company for December.
