I don't normally do one picture layouts. I have all my pictures, I scrap most all of them to document and preserve our memories and I try to always scrap in date order. But every once in awhile you just have to get outside of the box. Do something you're not use to doing. I want to grow as a "scrapbooking artist" so to speak, and the above is the result. This little sweetheart is going to give me plenty scrappin' opportunities.
It's been in the 60's and even 70's this past weekend, but over the last day and a half, the temperature's bottomed out. I don't think the high today was more than 39 or 40 degrees. We had tons to do today, so we bundled up and headed out. Natalie hated this hat. This was a calm moment before the tears start flowing. She finally got used to it after a few minutes, but even after we left the house it didn't last long. It kept covering her eyes which she also did not like.
John picked up his WoW Expansion Pack, then we went to Best Buy for him to pick up the strategy guide. Also went to Hobby Lobby and picked up some more acrylic stamps. One of them was the "n" that was used in the above layout.
So about tonight's episode of American Idol. I had very mixed emotions going into tonight. Four years ago, when I became such an Idol Fan, I joined an American Idol online community. I've made several online friends from that community and the little group of about 20-25 people have become like a little AI family. The American Idol forum that we all post and chat on stays active year round. One of the most beloved members, who posted almost every day without fail had not been around for several weeks. The group found out today that she passed away on December 30th. She was only in her early 40's and it was such a shock to the entire forum. She has a 19yr old son and a 15 yr old daughter.. so my prayers go out to this family in North Dakota.
I don't want to end this post on a sad note, so here are my random thoughts about tonights show.
- The singing was really bad, but we all knew to expect that.
- The very first girl that was "inspired" by Jewel seemed to be an act. I didn't buy all that crying.
- Overall I was disappointed. The bad ones weren't all that funny and the good one's were just okay.
- I think my favorite was the Jackson girl. I think her first name was Denise.
- Somebody should have unlocked that left door for crying out loud.
