Sometimes ya just gotta do it...

When you see a totally kick ass digi kit you just gotta get it and play with it...

I will have to warn you first.. hehe I am not a digi scrapper.. I dabble a little bit. lol this being my 4th digi layout ever. If you know me you know I like to be grungy and when I seen this kit I couldn't help but download it... The best part is the kit is free. For now anyway.. It is called "Dirty Girl" and was designed by Sarah Barber. It has 12 pattern papers, 3 overlays and some more goodies... Check out her blog where you can find the link to download it... Sarah's Blog

Here is my layout... I hope ya like it. I added the scalloped edge with my graphire tablet and the journaling font is chiller..

Thanks for looking...

Accomplishments...

I am soooo proud of oldest son Noah(14). He has been doing Tae Kwon Do for a little over 5 years and On Friday he tested for his 2nd Degree Black Belt. He did an amazing job.. It was a very long test... 2 hours and 15 min. I swear it seemed longer. It is always so hard to get great photos in the dojo.., but I did manage to get a few... I hope you like them..

I thought this was a great kicking shot.

He had to break a total of 50 boards so here are some shots of that.

Beautiful Distraction...

I decided to do a canvas for each of my children to display in the living room...

I totally love the way this canvas of my daughter turned out....




I took some of my favorite pictures of her from the past year. I really think the canvas says a lot about her personality... She is quiet but isn't afraid to give anyone a piece of her mind. She is always happy go lucky and never tries to be something she isn't... She is simply herself. She is really coming out of her shell this year. Setting goals for the future and totally living each day to the fullest. Her laughter is infectious and will make anyone smile....

It's only 7pm here... Joshua(5) is sitting on the front porch waiting for the ice cream man to hit our street... I totally love it when you hear that jingle from the ice cream man... It has to be nice for the ice cream man to come around.. Although I am not a fan of his prices.. lol

Friday will be a big day for Noah(14) he is taking his 2nd degree black belt test in Tae Kwon Do. He has been in Tae Kwon Do for 5 years now and has accomplished so much in this sport. I am so grateful that he loves it as much as he does. He is so excited to take the test. My pocket book wasn't so thrilled.... $500 to take a test. ughhhhhhhhhhh but he loves it and has major goals set for himself and he is achieving them... You soooooooooo know I will be there with my camera... hehe If he passes... Next weekend he will get his new uniform, badges etc.

Scrapbooking.... yeah I totally love it.... I have decided that I want to be on a Manufacturer design team.... I really think I can bring a funky, grungy and cool vibe to a team... Now I just need a company to love my work and ask me to join them... LOL yeah that's the hard part.. hehe I know I do great work and put a lot of attention to detail along with lots of personality to my projects. You just never know what they are looking for... I just hope one day they are looking for the way I design, the way I create art. Keep your fingers crossed for me. hehe

Thanks for looking and reading.. hehe

A simple day.

Yesterday Joshua and I decided to go out on a little adventure. lol

After getting lost we finally made it to the Jordan Bridge.. It's a suspension bridge that goes over the Snohomish river out here. I first need to say that I am scared of bridges.... I figured Joshua would walk out a bit and turn around so I can take a picture of him. Totally wrong. He got on the bridge and kept on walking. Totally ignoring me telling him to come back to me. LOL He isn't afraid of a thing. So brave. He gets to the middle of the bridge and turns around and says "well are ya coming or what"... UGH.. GULP.. I say a little prayer and start to walk on this bridge. So I make it across alive. lol WE then take the stairs down to the river. Joshua had the whole place to himself and had a blast...

Here are a few pictures from our day....


As you can see he loves to have his photo taken. LOL He is such a little ham. hehe Thanks for looking...
