Challenges & an Update

The new OLW challenge is "Be". I've used some of Wil's 5th Grade Promotion pictures and incorporated it in the title Be Proud. I can't believe he is starting 6th grade!! Check them out

His Middle School Orientation was on Friday poor lil guy looked so nervous and scared...a new school....a new group of kids. Luckily when we got there I met up with some baseball Mom's and he grouped up with the kids. There are only a few kids in his class that he knows but they've already got plans to meet before school and before lunch in a secret spot. All in all it went well, it looks like a fantastic school and I know a few of the administrators from LL. Who says Baseball doesn't pay off? lol

Next is the new Sketch up over at Gettin Sketchy. I gotta admit when I first saw the Sketch I thought omg no I can't put that many pictures on there....NO WAY! Then I started another LO and just "tried" to make it work. I absolutely love the outcome and it just goes to show you that you really can make any sketch/lift work for your liking. Get on over there and check it out for yourself!

This little Graduation pig was no joke the HIT of the day! My Mom brought it for Wil and when he opened it and it started walking around singing everyone loved it...Kids came over asking to have their picture taken with was The other pictures of the actual ceremony came out not so great so they worked really well as accents in this LO rather than the main event!

I love some of the old school elements in this LO like the glitter, the beads, OMG the bosher! Not to mention I've had those Newspaper flowers forever not quite knowing where and how to use them.

We've had a decent weekend so far. Yesterday Danny worked while I scrapped these 2 layouts. Wil was able to hang out with his friend and then just chill playing Video Games. His video games are very very limited during the school year so he lives it up while he can!

Last night we picked up some Papa Johns Pizza {Yummm} and headed over to Danny's Secretary's house for game night. I know what you're But let me explain...his secretary is a man, who's married to another it's all good. I was nervous as you people know I am not the most PC person out there...and after a few drinks my mouth starts flapping lol Well they were actually super cool and I adored them greatly! We are definately planning more game nights and events.

Oh did I mention I won?! lol In the end it came down to Danny and I. Danny who made a deal with me for free rent for life on his 2 monopolies in exchange for some very valuable properties to him. Yeah, he definately screwed himself there. In the end he had only those 2 Monopolies (The reds and the greens) and I had EVERYTHING else. He had no way to make money {Which was good as I had little} Anyways, yeah it was fun!

Today we are headed up to the Barstow Outlets, we are looking for school shoes for Wil. He's in an odd size 6 1/2 Mens. Because its so small hardly anyone carries it in stock so we are hoping to score a deal at the outlets. Which also means I get to stop at Coach, maybe Danny will buy me a prize too!!

Anyways, I'm off have a happy Sunday everyone!

Update: Came home and scrap, scrap scrapped!! Hey what can I say I was on an OMG I got a new Coach high. lol I'll post pics later of the new addition...for now here's another challenge.
