Never a Dull Moment

Yup, so I was sitting on my computer typing along after watching the eliminations on So You Think You Can Dance when Boom! All was black. The lights went out after a night of serious thunderstorms. Now I am a bit of a baby when it comes to the dark.

Imagine me as a kid. I used to feel like someone was following me down the stairs so I would always run as fast as I could to the bottom. I would also spend hours not being able to fall asleep because I would see shadows that looked like skulls or wallpaper patterns that reminded me of a million eyes.

So here I am in the pitch black with my two kids upstairs sleeping in their beds and DH out with friends. EEK! Did you know that cellphones make great flashlights? It was all I could find. Come to find out later that all the other ones were in Steve's car from our little camping out trip.

I muddled through and I think I learned that the dark is not so scary. We had a big snuggle fest in our bed because the kids, of course, woke up!

Oh, the joys of this summer! It has allowed me time to experiment with scrapbooking though. I have been playing with white space and simplier designs. Just shaking it up a bit! Here is a recent one:





I can't stop scrapping Fourth of July pics because I caught some great shots and I love Webster's!

Hey, speaking of no dull moments, only 10 more days until CHA! I cannot wait!

  2. Glad you made it through the night and have your lights back so you could share this fabulous layout. I have a very similar idea in my head for a sketch assignment I have due. Seeing your layout lets me know that it could work and look SUPER!

  9. VERY CUTEEEE PAGE! and YESSS I have used my cell phone several time as a flash light. We get freak thunderstorms here (having one now ughhhhh!!!!) all the time. I always have my phone in my pocket or on my person someeeewhere. and have had to use it to find my way. Bella thinks it is wayyyyy coool! I still think I need to upgrade to the I PHONE. Then I wouldnt be bored as well. (I just have a boring old razor.

  10. Awesome layout - I love the stars & layers.

    Glad you survived & have the lights back on. I'm one that has a flashlight hidden in several places around the house that only I know where it is so hubby/sons wouldn't walk off with it because I'm a big chicken too - mostly because I'm so clumsy that I'm likely to break my neck walking around in the dark & trip over one of our cats or the dogs lol

    Can't wait to meet you in person at CHA can you believe it's almost time to go? I hear it was in the high 90's at 10 am today are you ready for that?
