AEzine challenge...

Okay, so this IS a bit of "kill two birds with one stone." (and hello... how really sick is that little saying when you truly think about it?!Yuck... ) but, I digress... with the help of my ever faithful three dots, (...) I will get back to business...

So, I never get the Ali challenges done in time, but this week, I knew I could when I realized I had been using my stamps some in the JuSt tO LeT yOu KnOw album... technically, I think I was supposed to use a geometric as well, BUT in my defense... (You KNOW that phrase has to make it in every post, ugh, I am SUCH a 4th child.) My little swirly is a circle as well, so... again I get to use the el-sicko "kill two birds with one stone" saying. I finished them today, and Lincoln cheered for me. He was literally seeking high fives, and telling me the new pages were "GREAT!" How cool is he? (very cool!) Here are the pages, the second one is the challenge one... I am also going to add them to the slide show on the right. I now you can't read the writing when it won't enlarge, and if you click on them there, they'll be bigger. I never know the rhyme or reason behind blogger and the whole "clickable" photos...


JOBS... fun to remember the ol' days... If you read them, and you see the part where I was a produce clerk, and I call my boss "legless" I am not being mean. He really was, he lost his legs from above the knees down to diabetes. He still drove, kept that stand going, and was a kind boss. He once put his truck in reverse accidentally, while he had the door open. His legs flew off and out into the road. I heard him call me, and went to help him. He yelled for me to get his legs, so I did. Yep, a 13yr old girl, standing in the middle of the road with a leg... complete with sock and shoe... cars were clearly wondering... again, I digress...






This one was where you interview someone else, asking them questions about you... Oh my word, Micah and I were laughing so hard while I was asking him these. He was cracking me up, and I know it is not properly conveyed in writing, but when he was giving the airport "description" of me, he was all serious... until he broke out that little sign comment. (see, now you want to go click the slide show and read it don't ya'? or not... I don't mind... you're still reading aren't you... my three little dots have tricked you again... they are hypnotic aren't they... ?

  9. HI Jude
    thanks for the comments about my minibook/baby gift. All I used was cardstock I had in my stash and one of those file holder thingy's...a 2 fold fastener. Easy and inexpensive!
