Scrapping for the pure fun of it!

I am on a site Creative Team for The Digi Chicks and Mscraps, and I enjoy different designers to choose from to make my pages.
First up, from The Digi Chick, Quirky  Twerps newest addition to the "The Chick Fix" Adventurous kit help me put together a page of my oldest out exploring in California!

Then I move on to Mscraps, and I for some reason went nuts in their new releases, which I kick myself for come upload time, but I did get them all uploaded and linked! ha ha
The first one is just pure fun, I was playing with these wicked cool new templates called Free Way by Cintia Tavares and HeatherT's summer fun kit, Sandy Toes  
There is a collab by the designer formally known as Polly and Rufus but is now SophieLovesDesign along with Joyce Paul called Tijuana Sunrise: I just played and played while looking at these photos of my goofy girls:
My friend and a woman whose pages and designs are just wowza, Heather T had a few really cool frame bits and I was able to use them and a kit I had one a few months back, that I have no idea what the name of the kit Petite Bergere.  
I love this picture, because I am so safe with Tony, I know he loves me and covers me with his prayers, love and support, and he always laughs at my jokes!

Last is a page about Tony, I love this picture, you can see how strong he is and just how much I really love him!  I used QoH's template called I am getting paper and the June collab from Mscraps.
That is all I have for now, I am pretty buzzed, my house is almost all unpacked! My hubby bought me a new desk today, and I feel rather smart and business like!

Back in the saddle!

Almost 14 days without even opening CS.  Moving took it all out of me.  Hubby got my puter all set up, the internet man came and hooked me up.  I didn't even want to open it.  I had no desire.  My camera sat looking at me mockingly.  Then came the Tangie machine! That woman, seriously I wish I could bottle her up.  She can motivate me like no one else.
The Art Journal Caravan had this coolest Adventure Quest this month, a scavenger hunt.  It had me rolling and laughing, sorting through my stash and wanting to play.  Now you can laugh if you want to, because I laughed making  it, here is my first page back from the abyss of non creating:
I also want to tell you that Tangie (in her spare time) figured out WordPress and made the most beautiful new website. Please pop over and re-sign up for RSS feed or just go everyday and enjoy!

a long long long drive home

We left May 27th right after lunch.  All packed and ready!
 This is my view leaving nor-cal! I had to take a pic! Then a close up of my view from California to New Mexico!
Saturday we made it to Arizona! Can you see the sign?

The boys were so funny in the van.  The truck was too loud for games, and too bouncy, so the boys talked the girls into swapping and they got an extra day in the van.
The first night we were in Bakersfield and this car parks right behind us! I was just perplexed at why they did it? We learned that we have to plan better to get out in the morning.  Tony was awesome and backed up and pulled out and then had to back out of the whole parking lot.  Crazy, but we were all cheering for him!

Whoops we goofed, this was our long day, and we stopped at the Comfort Inn, and not the Comfort Suites we had planned on, that was a mile further.  It wasn't the nicest hotel, but the pool was fun and we were closer to home!
Ha ha, notice no Penske in front of me?? I couldn't handle it anymore, and well I wanted to be first in New Mexico!  The girls agreed and we giggled as we whooshed by Dad and the boys!!
We were almost home, but the dust storm 3 hours out just wore us out, so we stopped in Willcox, Arizona.  It is a little town, with the most comfy beds and a nice hot breakfast with the sweetest lady.  Home was closer!

Passing the Continental Divide was just cool beyond.  I don't know why I am impressed with this, but I am!
We are home, and the view of my honey in the PENSKE:
