Saturday with Unscripted Sketches and CSI

 Hope you had a great week.  I'm back working today but then I get off for a week YEAH!!! Going to meet my cousin who is visiting her daughter in Austin on Sunday and then spend a few days here and then go see my Brandy and her bff and her new baby down in  Corpus next weekend.  Can't wait to see them all!  Today I have a card for you from Unscripted Sketches as well as a layout from the new Case File over at CSI this week.

 This is my son, Jason, with my granddaughter, Madison, his niece.  They have such a special bond - great friends!

Thanks for stopping by!  I love hearing from you!

Unscripted Sketchs, CSI and a little more!

First of all Happy Birthday to my sister whose birthday is today!!
Got alot for you today.  First I'm excited to announce that I have made the 2013-14 DT for Core'dination's again. YEAH!!! Love this team and can't wait to meet the new members!
Then for my Unscripted Sketches this week I actually made a layout for the sketch - it just seems perfect for all these pictures I had from my dh's BD party where we all were playing Taboo - which is a down and dirty game when we play!  Some serious players here!
I'm working all weekend - can't complain - have vacation coming up in just a little over a week and then I'm off to see Brandy and maybe make a trip to up see Kim and the grandkids too.  Also want to get some Kayaking in.  Made our excursion reservations for the cruise today and it's now exactly one month to the day away!!


Next up is my layout for the CSI case file this week - used this adorable picture of Gavin - some MME and just an assortment of products

Next is a page I did with some Webster's papers I had - it's really straight IRL but I could not get a picture of it that way!  UGH!

 Then last of all is another page from a Noel Mignon kit - I've really gotten my money's worth out of the March kit and have the May kit on the way to me now - can't wait!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

For Your Inspiration

 How's your week going?  Mine has been fabulous!  I'm in the middle of four days days off - have to go back this weekend.  But had lunch with a friend today after going to a mandatory class (UGH!) at the hospital. But for today here's my card for For Your Inspiration's photo. 

Then I was in the mood for some Graphic 45 papers when I got this awesome photo from Megan of her and her little Gavin.  Love the Core'dination's 45 papers especially this houndtooth pattern one. If you click on the pictures they will come up so you can see the details
Then I did this page last night with some photos I've had here of Gavin covering the last couple of months.  He's so expressive!  AND sadly I saw a layout that I thought would be just perfect with Core'dination's papers but I can't for the life of me find out who did it to give them credit but this is done totally with Core'dination's cardstock together with some Queen and company bling and washi tape!
Thanks for stopping by!

Unscripted Sketches and CSI plus one more!

 WOW happy Saturday!  It's been a week for sure.  Realized I had signed up for four 12 hour shifts this week and then since I had added one - ?? to be nice they made me in charge for my extra day??? This is the BLACK CLOUD of the ICU - 10 (that's half of the patients we had that day) got orders to downgrade - four went out - four came in - ONE busy day!!!! THEN the person who was listed as being charge that night and who is never late didn't appear - we called - his schedule showed him to be on call - checked the records - he was right so we had to do some assignment shuffling and needless to say I didn't leave on time!
But on to bigger and better - here's my card for Unscripted Sketches - using some of the new Tim Holtz Shattered line - LOVE this stuff!

Next up is my layout for the CSI this week.  Love it when it included a sketch - I'm such a sketch gal!  My son and daughter who each have a special relationship with their nieces and nephews  - they are close to the same age.  We took these pictures last week at my Mom's 86th birthday party!

And a page just because - still using my Noel Mignon kit up - my daughter's Bff's baby and his daddy - such awesome photos!

Thanks for stopping by!  Love to hear from you!

Unscripted Sketches, CSI and a little more!

 Happy Saturday - for a change I have the entire weekend off and not just Saturday.  Today we are celebrating my mother's 86th birthday with dinner for around 20 (just maybe half of her family of kids, grandkids and g-grandkids) at the restaurant of her choice - Salf Lick.  NONE of us like it but she just thinks it's awesome so there we go!  Then most of the crowd is coming back here for another party to celebrate Jesse's birthday - he's my oldest daughter's husband and is turning 50!  BUT my group doesn't really need a reason to party - anytime we all get together it's a party!  So I imagine little sleep for me and Charlie and wall to wall blankets and pillows for everyone!
Brandy came in Thursday and we ran together last night - I usually do interval running for 4-5 miles but at MY pace - yesterday she was driving the pace and needless to say I am SORE.  I repeatedly told her - Mom's 60 you are only 20 - give me a break - nope you can do it.  (her) This is why I tell you you need a personal trainer to drive  you harder than you will drive yourself!  Probably true.
Today I have my card for Unscripted Sketches - had fun with this one.  Used a Unity Stamp, an October Afternoon tag and a SRM sticker for it.

Next I have my layout for the Case File at CSI - lucky to say I've been asked to continue on the team for another term - YEAH!! Love these files - they make me stretch myself and my oldest daughter loves it because it often causes me to do a layout about myself - things she wants to hold on to. This one is about my princess Tess - who is lovingly referred to as the princess because she feels she is one - DEMANDS that she is one and expects EVERYONE to know and understand that.  She does not deal with other cats or dogs - she is above that - she is human as she wants you to know.  She's 14 now and still going strong. 

Then I'm having so much fun scrapping Gavin - he's just the cutest little thing.  Here I used some old Crate Paper I've held on to for seems like forever - perfect for his little outfit.

Then another page with my latest Noel Mignon kit - went to order the next one and she says they are already sold out - ugh!!!

Thanks for stopping by - your sweet words make my day!  Off for another run - determined to take another 5-10 off before our cruise in May - already down 8!
