ScrapCapsule (tm) on the horizon!

Hey all.. Welcome to Dec09.. Where did it go??  When I turn around and look over these last 11 months, I saw so many things that changed bits and pieces of my life this year.  There was lots of joy and some sadness.  Some heartbreak but who knows about it?  Probably no one really. I remember that in elementary school when I was in the 6th grade, way too many years ago, we did a time capsule .. yep we did and we opened it 15 years after we put in our items.  There were pictures of me and my friends back in the day. I put in a poodle skirt and a scarf and a few other items like a 45 rpm record of Tammy Terrell and Marvin Gaye.  It was nice to get those back because my kids hadn't really seen those things.  Well I want to do that digitally now.  So I have ScrapCapsule (tm). Join me in putting a scrapcapsule together for your family.  Yes we have our scrapbooks but the ScrapCapsule is your thoughts, what makes you smile, what makes you cry and what get's you, well you finish the blank.  

Have a Happy Holiday Season.

Advertise it Challenge @ CSD

Sometimes it is so hard to just pass up creating a layout.  This month's layout inspiration for the Advertise it challenge gave us license to be creative.  My inspiration from the ad was the placement of the pictures.  Here's my contribution to the CSD Advertise It! Challenge.

Restful sleep, great release of creative juices

Hey y'all.  Well for the first time in one week I slept like a baby.  Nicely warmed and cuddled by family and friends and plenty of on-board drugs to dull the pain in my back and my legs. Nicely rested and awaken this morning with a wealth of creativity just oozing out of my brain.  I will update my calendar on things that I will be working on this week.  Nothing heavy. I still have lots of recuperating to do on that front. Hugs to all.  Have a fantastically scrappy day y'all!

Trying times

It has been a time. Today was better for a little while and then got worse.  I had to have emergent back surgery last week.  I'm on a ton of drugs including Prednisone which has just pushed me over the edge with family. Short temper, outbursts, tears, pain.. you name it I got it.  I'm in my room trying to figure out what to do since I can't seem to stop crying.  Suggestions? Well.. look for me to snap out of it very soon cause if I don't  it's trouble. Love and hugs.
