My Team won...Go Team 3

I joined a super fun challenge at Scrapwhisper back in June/July and it ran for 8 weeks. The owner of Scrapwhispers blog send out a page to all the team captains and they have one week to lift that page and send it to the next player. We only get to see the page of the player before us and we go from there. It's like the old game we used to play when we were little called "Telephone" at the end the team that had the most fluid progression and kept close the the original design wins and out team won. New sign up are going on right now if anyone wants to sign up and play.

This page is a page done of one of my older boys he turned 19 and I just cannot believe how fast time went. I feel this way about all my kids really. I love milestones but do we have to reach them so quickly...LOL...in 2 months he will be 20 and Josh will be 21 and I feel like I'm to young to have a 21 and 20 year old already. I'm sure all parents feel this same way.

SCS Halloween ATC swap

I decided to join an ATC swap over at www.splitcoaststampers.com. One of my favorite bloggers, me, my, stamps, and I has some really cute cards she has made with her ATC's so I thought why not join a swap and try my own ATC's. These are for the Spooktacular Halloween swap and I signed up for two spots. Talk about fun and super easy!! The top one I am going to use on a page and the bottom one I think I will make a card out of. Those are my projects to work on this week. Then I signed up for a journaling ATC and I will start on those this week too. I am lovin this small size. I have 2 gallon size ziplocks full of Stampin Up cardstock scraps and this will really help use them up. Thanks for looking.

My hubby's job

This is what my husband has been working on for the last 2 years. I knew it was high (obviously) but I guess I never really guessed at the enormity of this bridge. We went last week to a closure party. They celbrated getting the last piece of that bad boy done. That little box thing in the middle of the bridge is where ther men are all still working. After the party he took us all out to see it and it is truly an amzing thing to see. The Hoover Dam is an amazingly awesome site but add this fly over bridge and all you can do is say WOW. I was never afraid of what my hubby does until I saw this and now I say a prayer each day he leaves. I now don't complain when he asks what are you makin me for breakfast or when he leaves his laundry upstairs intsead of bringing it down for me. He talks about being harnessed and hanging 900 ft in the air but I don't think I really absorded this until I saw it. I will never again roll my eyes or mumble under my breath that he could make is own darn breakfast. I need to be thankful he comes home everyday in one piece and that I get to stay home and raise our kids. I appreciate what this man does to support his family and the other men and women that share this same job as Ub (my hubby's nickname).
If you click on the picture you can see it really good. One last thing, I don't believe I will ever cross this bridge EVER...lol...all those cables have to go so I ask "what will hold up that arch and the highway once those cables are gone" the answer NOTHING!!!! Nope never riding over that bridge.
