I'm back

I have to be one of the clumsiest people on the face of the earth... last Thursday when I was at Sam's Club there was a horrible thunderstorm so everyone was piled up at the exit waiting it out. That was fine it gave me a chance to munch on my soft pretzel & cherry icy (I guess I'll never grow up) After about 15 minutes it seemed to have blown on thru so I decided to take a run for the car. As soon as I get about half way to the car the sky opened up again and started pouring. So I run for the car - not a good idea in sandals & my feet went out from under me & down I go. I've been nursing my back ever since. I've been a bit to loopy from muscle relaxers to risk posting anything (who knows what I would say lol).

Here's my layout for last weeks Flashback Friday over at 2peas pub board. The theme was random childhood memory. This is Halloween 1973. I remember pitching a fit that my mom made us go out when it was still daylight. She was the super over protective type of mom that would scare us to death about strangers & razors in our candy. We went out at 4 pm and only to houses we knew very well. She worked really hard making our costumes & was proud of them. I remember trying on several of her wigs & laughing. I love my mom's pants -- so classic 70's

We'd love to have you join us for Flashback Friday this week. I chose the topic & in honor of Father's Day it's something about dear old dad (or a strong male influence in your life)... So look for the thread started Friday on the 2peas pub board.

I wanted to give a huge congratulations to Daniela Dobson who won the 6 month full term design spot at My Scrapbook Nook. She is so talented & filled the gallery with beautiful creations. The 2nd place winner is the creative Alex Krypin who is a guest designer for 3 months & winning the 2 month guest designer spot is the super fun & talented Becky. Everyone who participated was challenged to the max. Thank you Leah & all the Nook designers.

Today is the last day of the Everything Scrapp'n Father's Day sale. 35% off your entire order.(Coupon Code FATHER). They have the fastest shipping around and there are a bunch of Thickers in stock as well as some great paper. They are going on vacation so all orders placed after noon Eastern time on Friday the 19th will not be shipped until the 29th (in the order that they were received).

The Everything Scrapp'n designers are taking over the blog for the next week so check every other day for a new post filled with inspiration. My day is the 20th. Teresa & Denise already have there posts up.

I'm so excited to be going to CHA Florida next month with the Heather (owner of Everything Scrapp'n) & our design team leader Denise. We'd love to know what you want to see carried in the store for the rest of the year. If you have a favorite company or type of product that will help us service you better. I will be taking lots of photos & posting them on my blog. I think my mom is going to let me take her video camera too. I can't wait to meet many of my online scrapbooking friends in person.

Please leave a comment today telling us what you'd like to see Everything Scrapp'n carry in the store.

Great entry! And, I got your RAK yesterday!!! Thanks so much :) I rarely buy pink stuff b/c I do so much boy work, but there have been so many times that I have thought that pink thickers would be perfect for a page but I either can't find them or forget about them and those are perfect :) Thanks again!
