SALS # 53....

It's time for another SALS Sketch challenge and I am FINALLY back in the game! I haven't been able to do my cards for awhile, because we have been moving so much. But, we are settled and I am stoked to re-join the team!

This time around we have TWO awesome sponsors, Kenny K & Whoopi Daisy!! Make sure you head over and check them out if you haven't seen their awesome digis yet!

Come on over to Seems a Little Sketchy and check out the sketch for this challenge!! Here is my card for a little inspiration...

Mojo Monday.....week 68! (FINALLY)

A day and a half later, and I am back! HAHA! I ended up making a set of cards using the #68 sketch, and I love them. The color combo is so pretty and I really love the layout too! Anyone else heading back into the archives and joining me on a mission to re-create the Mojo sketches?!

Here is my set of cards I finished up using Sketch #68!!

Here is a few other sets I have ready to go as well! I am late starting this year, but back in action!!

The day is young and I am getting ready for a craft sale on Tuesday night, so I am glued to my craft room chair today! We shall see what else I get finished up before Tuesday...

Monday Mojo.....on a Friday morning!

Thank goodness for sketch challenges. Honestly! It is a blistery morning here again in Alberta, and I have been sitting in my scrap room for about 2 hours now, and made NOTHING. I decided to browse some challenge sites I heart, and was reminded of Mojo Monday. Love their sketches! And so.....I decided to go back to week 1, and do them all from the very beginning.

BUT......the earliest sketch I can find is from week 68.....there is actually a 2009 Sketchbook made that I found, and so I shall start there.

And just in case anyone wants to play along with me, here is the link to the Mojo Monday 2009 Sketchbook.

You're welcome.

It's been awhile...

...and my how things have changed! We have moved.....AGAIN. No big shocker, I suppose. This was our 3rd move since April. Yes, I said THIRD. We have returned to Alberta.......the land of opportunity, so to speak. And things are looking up for us, for the first time in 11 years.

Firstly, I am back with my son. the same town, anyway. He is all growed up now, after all....but it is wonderful to be able to see him more often.

What brought on this sudden change, you might ask? A few things....

Back in September I attended my yearly scrapbook retreat and as always, had the time of my life :) Realized how lonely I have been, and enjoyed the time with Loni and my g/f's very much. I wanted to be near them all again.....even though leaving my family was tough. We seem to have a "closer" relationship from afar though, for some reason.

My husband also was offered an incredible job opportunity that we couldn't over look. He has started an apprenticeship for his "picker truck" ticket and is on his way to becoming a crane operator. He is very excited and I am thrilled to see him thriving, working towards a prosperous career and the best part.....OFF THE HIGHWAY and safe at home with me every night :)

I too am starting a great office admin job in the near future. My start date is not yet determined, as I will be taking over for someone going on mat leave and no one is certain when that will be yet.....sometime in the next 2-4 weeks. For now, I am biding my time crafting and hanging out with my Chica.

We are currently sharing a house with my Chica for a few months, until we are ready to find our own place in the early spring or so. It's a beautiful house in Sherwood Park and I am enjoying being roomies.

That is an update, in a nutshell! Now on to tonight...

The Mister and I ventured out onto the frosty winter roads for a date night.....something that we haven't done in a very long time. We went and saw a movie at the theater and it was so good that I came straight home to post the trailer for all of you, so that you don't miss your chance to see it.

The movie is called "About Time" and it stars Rachel McAdams. It is by far, the BEST movie I have seen in a LONG time. The story was fantastic, and I can't wait for it to come out on blu-ray so we can add it to our forever collection! It will be one that I will watch over and over again.

In case you have yet to see the preview, here it is for you to see......and if you get the chance to enjoy this one on the big screen....I give it THREE thumbs up! And THAT my friends, is impressive...

It is now time to go and enjoy my tea and the rest of my evening with the Mister.....take care and stay warm out there! I shall be back in a much timlier fashion...
