At the end of the post the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment letting them know that they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answers.

Ten years ago....
wow let me think... well I was managing a Supercuts in Nampa, ID and was childless other than our wonderful dog Bo (my he rest in peace :( It is sad to say that other than the dog and my waist line I do not miss much from that time, well maybe the quite times that I had a lot more of before the kids came along ;) But since I did not start scrapping till I got pregnant with my son there was not much going on. So sad that I wasted all that free time when I could have been paper crafting!

Five things on today's "to do list"

1. laundry.... it just never ends!!!

2. Dishes they never seem to end either!

3. Try and get the paper work taken care of for Sydney's preschool, for the fall

4. would like to get a scrapbook page started it has been a while!

5. Read some more of New moon by Stephanie Myers ( I started reading the 1st book in the series Twilight, cause they filmed part of the movie in our town and I just wanted to know what it was about, but now I am hopelessly hooked!

Snacks I enjoy

Hmmm well I am not sure I can list them all (LOL) anything chocolate is usually good, also a big fan of popcorn and when you have popcorn you have to have something sweet to go along with it!

Things I would do if I was a millionaire

well I would make sure that my family and friends were taken care of! We would move to eastern Oregon where it is a little drier. Build a nice house with a wonderful scrapbook room!!!!! I also have a dream for a store that I would like to open... a his and hers sort of place with a supervised play area in the center for the kids so mom and dad could shop with out the kids!

Places I have lived

wow this list could get long....
well, Portland OR, Salt lake city UT, Everett WA, Springfield OR, Estacada OR, Boring OR, Boise ID , Nampa ID, Manassas VA, Culpeper VA, Vernonia OR I think that pretty much covers it.

I will tag

I hope that everyone plays I would love to hear your answers to the questions! get to know all my blog friends a little better!

Baby book

Ok so some friends of ours just had a baby girl and since I have been wanting to make one of these books and my wonderful husband and kids just got me the Zutter machine for my birthday I set out to make my 1st book with my new toy! I used the CDS to set the pages up, with all pages being 4 1/2 tall and getting slightly longer as they go (although I think the next one I will spread them out even more) I used pink and green DCWV paper that I thought was just too cute! With various other elements throughout. If you have a question about what something is please feel free to ask and I will do my best to fill in the details!

Happy Fathers Day

Well as you all know men's cards are a challenge for us all so Fathers day cards can be a daunting task. I do have to say that it was made much easier by the addition of these great CTMH stamps that I got this fall, and my new HEA cart! For the Sleepy card I cut Sleepy @ 6 inches I used colored pencils and the odorless mineral spirits to shade. I then covered a chipboard square with matching paper and stamped with studio G stamps from M's. The other 2 cards I stamped with CTMH off road stamps I colored with pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I used a little ribbon and off road charms from Karen Foster. The orange card, is paper from CM and the dots are DCWV
