I FLY!

I stand so far above you all
You act is if I am not going to fall
Holding stiff and stoic, your view
There are things in my head that you never knew
I resist the feel of gravity pulling
I can't stop myself from screaming, inside
I will to do or to die, joking
Not really I believe I am going to FLY!

Good, Bad & the Ugly

The Good~

Cafe Mojo Challenge use glimmer mist & Pamela's sketch 132. I had never used it before so I ran out to my local ss and bought some. For this lo I put some paper flowers down first then sprayed Pink Glimmer Mist on the paper, I also sprayed some on the vintage music book sheet. There is vintage sewing pattern between the pics. Rachel and her escorts at the FCCLA fundraiser Fashion show!


This meal turned out very good, I made Chicken Cordon Bleu it was yummy!! (the tooth picks were colored and you can see it on the servings ~:O) still yummy. I had extra chicken, I fried it in spices.

The BAD~

I was out thrifting at my local shops....there on the table was one of these, I did a bad thing and bought it for ten dollars. It is def not something I needed, but I really couldnt fight the desire to have it!!! I need to clean mine up so this is a pic from the internet.

The UGLY~
Rachel is fine, Thank God! She had a passenger and the other car had two, they are all uninjured! Praise God! The car is a total loss, the adjuster was surprised there was no injuries. Dear daughter was taking a friend home (she didn't have my permission) and reared ended a car on a dark hwy, going 55-60 mph!!! When it first happened she called me and I quickly told her to call 911, luckily Dan was home and we went to her. I saw the girls in the car and all the front and side air bags blown along with front end of the car smashed up, I couldn't get out of the car....I knew I would faint. Just to see your own child in such an accident, I am strong but not right at moment, not at all.

Saturday Sunday Ramblings and layouts!

Saturday I completed this layout for a challenge at Sisterhoodofscrap, use a sentiment found on a card. I chose You're invited. lol My son Clayton asked his gf Jennifer to go with to the Miami Univ. Bicentennial Ball, she agreed and drove down to the university ....they had a wonderful time!
Afterwards we traveled to my sister in laws bf's home to join in a potluck and see their new lil chicks. There are five chicks for egg laying. My Rachel didn't come but we texted her and she named one of them Max ~:O) so cute!The five chicks are a week old but when they grow to lay eggs,
it will be 2.5 dozen brown eggs a week!!
"Puppy Love!" lo I had to include a love song title on a layout for Scrapbook Challenges on myspace.Today it is snowing and freezing....The family went to the Gault indoor track, then Rach and I went to the grocery store. While we were out we bought her new womens lacrosse cleats, since the mandatory workouts start tomorrow and the season will begin in a month!! We got her the Nike Womens Speed Lax cleats! Very nice! She has worn the Nikes in this pic for two years...it is about time for a new pair!! Go Lady Lax 2009!!
