I should be Scrapping...

I know, I should be scrapping. I have a million pictures to do and I feel like I don't have what I want to do them with.

I think I'll try digging into my Cedar Point pics.

August 17, 2009

I take too many pictures of weird stuff. LOL
(I took pictures of the shiawassee fair, rides and the pretty clouds in the background.)

Here is the project I did for Joe, he was thrilled, but pretended he wasn't. LOL

I started working on my cedar point pages, and now I have wedding cards to make, ima go to it!

Craziness to a new power.

I was just informed of the wedding date of a good friend of mine: September 19, 2009. The bigger shocker: I'm the maid of honor. *gulp*

Talk about crunch time baby!!!!!

Don't think I'm not honored, I am!
I am merely pointing out the frantic state that I am about to enter. LOL

Forgive me for going AWOL, but I think I'm about to again. I'll make up for it, I promise.

Life Lessons

I received this in an email and wanted to share.

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind
.17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie . Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ''In five years, will this matter?".
26. Always choose life.
27. Forgive everyone everything.
28. What other people think of you is none of your business.
29. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
30. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
31. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
32. Believe in miracles.
33. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
34. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
35. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
36. Your children get only one childhood.
37 All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
38.. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
39 If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'dgrab ours back.
40. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
41. The best is yet to come.
42. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
43. Yield.
44. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

August 13, 2009

I started a wedding blog so I wouldn't bombard everyone with my planning and frustration. LOL

I'm working on stupid sock creatures, and an idea that I found on They said go to a photo booth and take pics of the two of us and then write I can't wait to marry you on it. I'm going to adapt that a little...

I'm going to take three pictures of us that I already have and scrap them onto a little pictures strip and write I can't wait to marry you on it. I'm going to scrap at Melissa's later, I expect to do this little project tonight.

I'm off to print pictures and do more wedding plans.

August 10, 2009

This last week on vacation was perfect!!!

We had a great time, did lots of walking, and Joe and I are engaged. He proposed to me on the Lake Michigan Overlook at The Project. The Project is a big DTE thing between Ludington and Pentwater and they have a nice little overlook spot where you can see the water coming back out into Lake Michigan. It's a great sunset spot.

I have at least 200 pictures that I need to sort, fix, and print to start scrapping!!!!
