Just Cre8 Online Crop

Here are a couple more of the pages I did for Just Cre8's online crop . The airplane lego page was a challenge. I had to use The colour Brown or any shade of it must be present on your layout, At least 5 different types of paper (patterned or Cardstock) ,At least 3 stars ( anywhere, any type!), At least 6 Brads or eyelets, At least 1 stamped element ,And some sort of hand writing must be seen!

My Monkey page was inspired by a Joni Mitchell Album cover. I now owe the kids a new barrel of monkeys.

Online Crop

I did the Revive and Rejuvenate Online Crop this past weekend at Just Cre8. I had a blast. I did several of the challenges and kind of enjoyed not having to haul all my stuff somewhere only to have left what I really needed behind. This was a scrapping 101 challenge. I don't really scrap this way at all. It was kind of hard to play be the rules on this one. In the end I don't mind how it turned out. Keep checking back as I continue to post the pages I did this past weekend.


Bubble Boy

Just a simple and fun LO. We had spent the afternoon at Family Fun Day in the Park. They had these "bubbles" that the kids put on and ran around bumping into each other. They had a hoot. A little bubble wrap painting, some gool ribbon and a little dry wall tape.

Owie

We went camping this summer for the first time as a family. We had a blast. Ray was chopping wood and some how or another he ended up with this sliver in his big toe. It was quite a large sliver and me being the person I am had to document it. It was a weekend full of owie's. The first aid kit needed to be replenished when we got home.

Tag You Are It

OK, so I was tagged by Julie and here is the link to her list http://cortens.blogspot.com/ . Now for my spectacular list of 6 things about myself......


1. I usually never do these kinds of things. While I do find them amusing to read I just don't take the time to sit down and do them. I think I just like to be a mystery to everyone. You know keep them on their toes and guessing as to what makes me tick. *smile*

2. I am afraid of the dark. I hate the dark. I have been afraid of the dark since I was a little girl. I think it has something to do with my cousins putting on one of those old men masks and hiding under the bed. After I had gotten into bed and turned off the lamp they crawled out from under my bed and scared the bejeepers out of me. I have a nice family eh?

3. I love the smell of rain in the spring. It rejuvenates me and tells me that a new season is upon us.

4. I have a very warped sense of humor. It sometimes gets me into trouble. Lots of times people are surprised to find out how off kilter I can be.

5. My inside voice escapes a lot. You know that sarcastic talk to yourself under your breath kind of voice. The one that no one should ever hear. Well mine has a mind of it's own. I never know when it will get away from me but....well it gets me into trouble.

6.Today my toenails are painted blue and my hair is dark...I ran out of thing that I could talk about and those that know me know my hair colour changes a lot sometimes weekly. I guess that's the hairdresser in me.

here are the rules for this tag....

Politics

Please don't be offended if I rant about politics for a few minutes. I am deeply disappointed in Maurice Vellacott. He is the MP for the Conservatives for my area. I phoned his office yesterday to ask him a few questions and to let him know that I was somewhat offended with the prerecorded voice message that I had received. He wasn't in his office so I left a message and he called back later in the day. When he called back he was at the car wash. I addressed him politely and thanked him for returning my call. He asked what he could do for me and I said I had a few questions about the policies of his party. He became very upset, to the point of raising his voice. He told me to go online and look up the news release because it would tell me all I needed to know. Mr. Vellacott's exact quote was "our party's record stands for itself and we have held power the longest of any other minority government". I said that was fine but I would like to address some of the concerns I had about some of the parties polices. He indicated to me that I was wasting his time. When I politely indicated that his own campaign seemed to be lacking a personal touch he completely went off on me. He informed me that an automatically dialed prerecorded message was personal. He asked me if I felt it was feasible for him to call 80 000 people himself. I said no but I found his message offensive and a complete waste of my time because it was nothing more than a telemarketing call, which I hate. His response was that campaigns are nothing more than marketing anyways. I found him to be rude and abrupt. I am a relatively well read and intelligent woman, but by the time I was done my conversation with him I felt ignorant. I am greatly saddened that he treated me as though I was a nothing, a nobody when in fact he works for me. I am his boss and he should have treated my phone call as though he was on a job interview. He should have been trying to win my vote instead of destroying my vote. I was planning on voting for him. I am no longer thinking that way. This afternoon when I got home I found a large bundle of information about the Conservatives in my mailbox. I have read through it and have come to the conclusion that the Conservative Party really has no idea what is going on with our health care, education, farming community and low income families. They are only out to help big business and hurt those that need the tax breaks and financial aid. The party doesn't have a clue about the housing situation nor are they doing anything to fix it. I am proud to be Canadian and I feel that taking part in the electoral process is a privilege. It is a freedom we have here in this country and I don't take that for granted. I urge all of you who read my blog to find out who is running in your community and to go out and vote. Study all the Party's platforms so you can make an intelligent and informed decision about who is going to run our country for the next four years. Thank you for letting me rant tonight.
