RAK Drawing Today

Wow everyone thank you so much I'm over 600 posts! Never dreamed that many visits over the weekend. You are all awesome!

The RAK drawing is tonight - still time to post on any of the 3 days. Just leave a quick comment to be entered. Here's the original post with the pix of the 2 stamp sets http://craftysuz.blogspot.com/2008/07/milestone-rak.html
I've already been writing down names for the drawing. Next time no "old school" for this gal definitely the random number generator. lol

I've been trying to finish a layout a day. I'm such a slow scrapper that I sometimes have trouble accomplishing that. I enjoy the creative process so slow doesn't really bother me.

Sunday I did a Christmas in July of a favorite photo of "Bob" that I didn't do earlier. I sure do miss that "big guy".

This is a page that (I can't believe I'm saying this) I really like. I hate having my picture taken because I always look like a goofball. I've gotten better about it the last couple years but still it's not my thing - I like being behind the camera not in front.

I was debating about applying to a design team and at the last minute decided to go for it and send in the application. I know I don't have a chance in the world because I've never been on a DT but you have to start somewhere - right? I've got a serious case of the empty nest syndrome with both boys in college now - they still live at home but are never here and I have too much time on my hands. So I'm looking at that as a good thing - put the energy I used to put into homeschooling into scrapbooking & gardening.

I didn't have a good photo of me and had been asking my family to take some shots for days with no one making the time. Anyway since no one was home and it was a beautiful day I took Rosie out in the backyard and started taking pictures of myself. None of them were really usable but I really liked this one. The new neighbors were out in the yard and I didn't realize and they saw me taking pictures of myself... not the best first impression... thinking they live behind a crazy person lol. Anyway as I noticed them they were going in the house so I couldn't explain myself - I broke out laughing so hard and snapped this picture. I had remembered a challenge on 2peas about a layout that was a message to yourself - so that was the inspiration for this layout. Unfortunately I was a little late for the challenge and it was already off the list. Still I made a layout that stretched my comfort zone a little and that's always a good thing.

Finished up 6 cards for Jennifer McGuire's card drive for kids. It's been really fun. I even made some for the parents. I'll post photos tomorrow.

For the 2peas Tues blog inspiration:
What was your first job - file clerk at Maryland Casualty Company, Baltimore MD. Summer position where my dad worked. When I was in Jr. High I wanted to be a psychiatrist - that was my nickname too Dr. Suz - giving everyone advice on their problems. lol

Thanks again for the awesome turnout! Good luck to each of you - wish I had 50 sets of stamps to give away instead of just 2.

Have a blessed day
