a good week.....

Last week turned out pretty good! I went back to work - but not for the full 8 hours. Just taking it easy and easing back into the swing of things. I'm actually going to attempt my usual cleaning routine tomorrow -

Did I tell you that I was asked to join a Critique Group? My best pal Mel invited me to join the For Scrap's Sake CG/COF and I am loving it! It's such a great group of ladies - all so nice, funny and talented scrappers. I am glad to be a part of their group! We are having a blast! We have a challenge twice a month and some other fun things going on.

Doing the challenges has been fun! This week's challenge was to scrap the town/city we live in. Believe me, it was a challenge! There's nothing exciting or great about the little town where I live. It's a pretty boring place. But I finally got it pulled together:Products Used: Jenni Bowlin pps and journaling sticker, Bazzill CS, Heidi Swapp bling, Marcella K chipboard, misc lace and twill
Journaling reads:
Welcome to Hilliard, FL - pop. 3800. We are 35 miles north of Jacksonville and 8 mile south of the Georgia state line. Yes, it's a small town - everyone knows everyone - we support our local businesses and High School teams. We have one red light, a grocery store and one fast food place. You will see a lot of pickup trucks and people dressed in camouflage year round. This is my home and I will never leave! I love it here!

Here's another one I did on Friday as a scraplift of my friend Mel:
Products Used: DCWV All Dressed Up Stack, Prima flowers, Fancy Pants Chipboard, Bazzill CS, Misc Ribbon, HL letters, Stickles in Silver

and here's one I did a while back but never got posted:
I found the old pics of AJ and just had to scrap one! I have more I want to do, too!

I think I am ready for bed. I am going to try to get back into updating this blog more than I have been. I just got out of it with being in the hospital - just taking me a while to get back into it.

Have a great week!

Lovin' the layouts!!

I would have the same problem with scrapping my town too. It's a very small dull boring place here.
