Well What are We Doing?

Let's see it's been awhile but a lot has happened too. Last Friday was the Boyscout Pack Pinewood Derby. We had a blast. Talk about a quiet group though. At first it was so quiet! Then it turns out that lane one had a problem so we had to start all over. That's when the parents started to warm up and yell and cheer! On top of it all can you believe it was a 4 way TIE! So we had to run another 4 heats. GUESS! Who won?! Francis! So we're going to District to race next! WoohooOn top of that! Think the racing is over? NOT! Saturday we had the AWANA Grand Prix. Francis raced with a different car since he had to use AWANA axels and wheels. So he didn't win that one. But Bryce Got 1st place in the open division for Design. Way To Go Bryce. WoohooDo these boys rock or what?!w00t 2 After AWANAS we went and got our taxes done! Are we doing good or what? Thumbs Up 8 Sunday was just a oh hum day. I woke up with a sore throat and after church it got worse. Not good! So I stayed home and Phil took the boys to CARE Group. Since then it's been homeschool as usual. Maybe it's me but sometimes I just want to give in and send them to public school. Of course I think they might last a day maybe two before begging to be homeschooled again. I dunno...Maybe I just expect too much from them. I want to homeschool but I keep finding myself slipping into the school at home mode and that just stresses me out waaaay too much. I need to step back and get a grip sometimes. I do miss the First Class Co-0p for sure! Heidi, Kelsy, Lori, Carrie! I miss you guys!Crying 8 Ok pity party is over now. I got some stuff to post but I'm going to do it later. Gots to go look up an ear diagram for class. Till later. Blowing Kisses

More Layouts

I promised more layouts from The Amazing Digiscrapping Race. Blogger was giving me a small problem with posting them but I guess it's feeling more friendly now.
Did you notice? I changed my blog. I used the kit Snowy by My all time favorite designer Christy Sturm at Butternug Squash Designs.
For the first layout here we had to use consecutive photos and tell what was happening. So I did a little instructional layout. Oh and a twist in the whole thing no 2 items could be from the same designer. Talk about a headache.

Bird Seed Pinecones

This is for the second challenge in week one of the Amazing Digiscraping Race.
Background paper is dana zarling northwoods brownpinebg from Jerri Ingalls Northwoods kit.
Matte papers are from:
Thankful kit by Heather Ann Designs (DST Member kit Nov.)
Fall Velvet by Holly McCaig (DST Member kit Oct.)
Whip Stitching by Lara Payton at Gotta Pixel/Digital Freebies
Metal Acorns by Christy Sturm at Butternug Squash DesignsThe next layout is called Sign of the Times. I think it's pretty self explanatory.

Sign of the Times

This is Challenge 1 in week 2 of The Amazing Digiscrapping Race.
Journaling reads:
A definite sign of the time. There you
are talking on your cell phone and
playing on your computer at the same
time. In my day there was no such thing
as a cell phone much less my own phone.
Computers were massive beasts not
the little laptop that you have today.
Yes it is a definite sign of the times.
Kit used is Wild Child Paisley by Melany Violet at Simply Clean Digiscraps.
Template is template 24 from the kit Simple Sketches 6 by Christy Sturm at Butternug Squash Designs. The note paper is from the kit Where's my List also by Christy Sturm at Butternug Squash Designs.
Fonts used are Letter Gothic Std, and Mayfield.

And then the last one for this week is the ATC showing something about myself. Heehee there I go climbing on my soap box about homeschooling.

Homeschool ATC

Digital ATC done for the second challenge week 2 of the Amazing Digiscrapping Race. I used the kit Elementary by Christy Sturm at Butternug Squash Designs, the heart came from her homeschool quote set. The quote on the chalk board is my own words. Font used is Mistral.

Well I hope you like what I've done so far. I'll post more later.

It's a 2 pager and a goal I have for 2007. What do you think? Did it turn out OK? I'll post the next one for week 1 when I get it done. Hopefully I'll get that done by Saturday.
