Just plain silly

Well It goes like this.... I have all this new Tinkering Ink waiting for me to play with it and it has just been sitting there. Then...I come along a post on Pubcalls saying that there is a relatively new Kit club looking for DT members. I decided to pull out that BEAUTIFUL Tinkering Ink and give it a whirl. And this is now my submission. I also doodled more than a bit...I wore out my white pen. I guess I need a new one.

These two 3 Bugs in a Rug layouts were inspired by two fantastic ladies. One day, the fabuluosly wonderful, Illyse surprised me with the chipboard tags. A few days later the lovely Echo brought me by the paper (another surprise). I guess my girlfriends know me too well. By the time I got my rear in gear to pick it up, it would already be yesterday's news. I must get better about that! What good friends! Will one of you buy me a new pen?

Tag? I've been tagged!

Well it seeems that this is an epidemic right now. I have been tagged by my friend Donna and apparently I'm it. So now I have to tell the truth...that I am not even close to perfect. Darn. I thought that I had you all fooled.

SO now I have to name 6 quirky things about myself. So here it goes.

1. Umm I am really freaked out by clowns. Yuck they are creepy. I have never, I mean never liked them. I don't like that you can't see who is under there. That is just wrong. Unfortuneately I feel that way about amusement park characters too (just not as strongly). As a kid I never wanted to take my picture with them.

2. I can't talk without my hands very well. I need them to express myself and when I don't, I get all tripped up. What can I that's Italian!

3. When I can't sleep at night I come up with scrapbook layouts in my brain. Then somehow I can hold it there and remember how to create it days later.

4. When I cook I don't measure...I just do a pinch here, a sprinkle there. Then when my friends ask how I make things, I can't really give them exact recipes. I think they think that I am holding back on them.

5. This is really Geeky,but I am okay with it. Deep breath. I can't let go of Duran Duran. I thought I had long ago,but when they reunited and I saw them in '03, it was like I was 12 again.
I still love them and jump up and down and scream when I see a cool and calm collected way of course.

6. I am convinced that people are actually reading my blog and find it interesting,but I actually may only be talking to myself...which I do often.

So actually I could go on and on and on,but I won't. I have to have some secrets.

Who will I tag. Oh Gosh who knows. Echo you are already taged. Most of my girlfriends don't have blogs. Hmm... this is a tough one. I will have to get back to everyone on this.

Signing off...Christine

A day for HUGS

Well a very Late Happy V-day to you ! This now has to be my very very very most favorite pic of my boys. Just took this pic of the kiddos this a.m. The way they hugged without any fuss was astounding. They don't hug they wrestle, they hit they cry..they are all boy ..snips and know how it goes! You would have thought that the world was coming to an end! So of course I had to do something with this photo! I made this on 5x7 canvas inked it and just put it all together...pretty quick. This became a Valentine's day gift for my Mother-in-law. Now I have to do something fabulous with one for me! However in retrospect....this pic is probably the best Valentine's present ever. My boys...yes my boys HUGGING. That is a wow for sure.

Sweet Treats for "the teach"

So I have been a busy little bee making altered paint cans for my kiddos teachers for the big "V" day. Here is a sample of one that I made. It was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be. Now I just have to stop eating the chocolate that I am using to fill the cans. Wish me luck!

So I recently went to CHA. Had a blast :) This is something that I hope that I will always be able to attend. I met a lot of great people and Scrapbook celebrities as well. Tee hee. Seeing the new product everywhere was overwhelming and exciting at the same time. It was great to be able to give some input as well. What a great opportunity I had. Here is a layout I did for The RED BEE. Some of my humor in well. I make myself laugh,but I am not sure about anyone else :)

I don't know what I'm doing...what else is new?

So hello all. I have decided to join the rest of the world and create my own Blog. Hmm...that should be simple..well unless you are a bit on the technologically challenged myself. So, here I am, don't know how to do this. I need help, a clue. Be patient with me...I'll get there soon somehow. I want to post pics and clever little things..but that may take awhile. So bear with me :)

Signing off, need a nap,
