Headed to the Sunshine State

I will be in Florida for the next week at CHA (Craft & Hobby Association). For those who don't know, it is a semi-annual show they do where vendors and retailers can get together to talk about the newest, latest, and greatest craft product on the market. I've always wanted to go to one, but never thought it would be for work (that's a drag). It's always been closed to the public anyway, but I guess they will be changing that the last day this year. That would be interesting, but we won't stay to see it.
I think Florida might be on my list of worst places to go in July/August. Can you say humid heat? Ugghhhh. The summer show used to be in Chicago--I could live with that.
On top of that, I don't have one single pair of comfy shoes to walk in. I can't find any that don't hurt my feet. So, this will be intersting to say the least. Hopefully I will live to tell about it.

New Hair

I have been a red head for about 2 1/2 months now, but my roots (and gray) were starting to show. I had decided to go back to my natural color (dark brown for those who can't remember or haven't known me long enough). Somehow though, my natural color just isn't enough anymore. I need something interesting. A little kick. So, I asked Tibi to give me blond highlights again. I love it! I have had this hair before, not for a while, but I think it is my favorite and it suits me the best.

This is just another layout I did for a sketch on 52sketches52weeks. This one is for sketch #28.

Catching Up

Just catching up on some of the sketches I haven't been able to get done over at 52sketches52weeks. I should be catching up on my housework, but where's the fun in that? I've been working so late that I don't have time to do anything that doesn't HAVE to get done each night. Therefore, my house is a wreck. Then, on the weekends, I want to relax. Whatever....... no one is going to remember how dirty my house was when I'm gone (hopefully) :). But, they will have my scrapbooks to remember how much I loved them.

New Do......

This is my niece, Jordyn. She has been begging my sister, Lacy, to cut her hair for weeks. This little one has lots of opinions on her own appearance lol. I remember last year she wanted bangs so bad. She finally got them, and she loved them for a couple of months, but then wanted to grow them back out. She's always wanting new outfits and putting on nail polish and all that girly stuff that mom's just love to do.
Well, after she was the flower girl in her cousin Katherine's wedding in June, she got her wish. They cut her hair from almost her waist up to her shoulders. She looks so darn cute in her new do. And she just tosses it like nobody's business. She's trouble waiting to happen I tell ya. Anyhow, I had to scrap it. This isn't really a good picture of her hair cut, but I liked the picture. She's such a sweetie.
I used American Crafts cardstock, Bo-Bunny patterned paper, a Stampin Up punch for the little hidden journaling tag, and my Cricut to cut the flourishes from my new Home Decor cartridge. The layout was inspired by sketch #25 at 52sketches52weeks.
