Also, everytime I go on to my dashboard, it tells me that I am following no blogs. I have to push the refresh button to get all my blog list back. Does anyone else have that problem.

This afternoon , the kids and I made papertowel roll turkeys. I got the idea from Sandy over at Just For Fun. Thanks Sandy, the kids had fun decorating their turkeys. That will be our centerpiece at the Thanksgiving Breakfast table. Jason, my husband, and I since we got married have made a big breakfast for Thanksgiving morning. The kids love it and look forward to the holiday. I will make a batch of pancakes, biscuits and Jason will grill regular bacon on the George Forman Grill. I will also make myself a fried egg and a slice of Canadian bacon with cheese on my biscuit. I call it a Canadian Sunrise. What traditions do you enjoy every year?
Again, Happy Thanksgiving!

- Blowing your noise at my dinner table. I am sitting next to you, HELLO!
- Wood chips from the school playground. My kids keep dragging thoses things in the house.
- Being fake. If you have to fake it, don't bother.
- Smoking in the non-smoking section.
- Throwing rocks in my yard.
- Using my driveway as a parking spot. I know I live by the school, but you can not park in my driveway. Unless you want to pay me.

I am so into buttons. Every summer when we go up to the in-law's cottage, we go to a local pharmacy/Ben Franklin store and I go right to their box of buttons. They sell 5 batches for a dollar. I think of all the pictures I have taken and start rummaging through the box. I am in heaven.
Sometimes it takes me a half hour to an hour to think up a simple idea, but once it is in my head, it takes only 10 to 15 minutes to do the layout. If I can't think of anything, I go to my magazines or books.

Regarding the scrapbook pictures, they are still from the last patch of pictures I took on a gloomy day. So, I am sorry for the blurry look. I am going to make sure, I always take those pictures on a sunny day, so I may use the natural light.
This layout is Lindsey's 6 month photo. I had cut the picture in an oval, with a Creative Memories oval cutter. Then I punch a bunch of daisy shapes with yellow paper. I used my punch from Stampin' Up! Then on the ends of the flowers, I used a orangish color chalk. My chalk set is from Stampin' Up! Then with a regular hole pucher, I punch a bunch of brown little circles, which I then glued on the flowers. For the photo, I would lay the flower on top of each other like a domino effect. This layout took a couple of days to finish, but I thought it was worth it.

Okay, alot of people have been posting about Twilight. So, I am going to post about the movie I am looking forward to seeing. It is "JCVD". Now, I am not a fan of Jean-Claude Vandame, but his movie "Timecop", was the first movie my husband, then boyfriend saw after we got back together after a short separation. So, it has sentimental value to us. I also hear that "JCVD" is receiving good reviews. I probably will not go to the theater to see it, but wait until it is on cable.
I hope you enjoy the trailer:)

Sorry for the poopy mood yesterday. Today is a better day, even though it is Sunday. Oh, I stayed up way to late yesterday. I did not go to bed until 3:00 this morning. I had pop way to late and I was a little hyped after watching Sex in the City Movie. So I thought I try to get into the top ten comments on SITS. Well, they were not up at that time.
p.s. If I do spellcheck, my signature goes into it's HTML stage. So I try to reread my work before I publish .

Okay now about the page. This is Lindsey's Baptism layout. I used pattern vellum and the colored vellum all through out the page. The pictures are black and white. I think the page is cool with the black and white photos, with the flowers the only thing of color. The top of the page is a lace sticker.
Today was not a good day. I know there are worst thing out there and people have it worse than I do, but today could have been a better day. I went grocery shopping in the rain, which hasn't stopped. When I got home my kids all were in bad moods. Picking on each other and walking up and down the stairs constantly. The two year old kept whining about everything. It wasn't even quiet when she took a nap. Her favorite show, Pingu, wasn't keeping her happy. Bedtime in 10 minutes.
Let's hope tomorrow is a better day, kids, camera and all.
