The Blog Collector

So it seems that I have started collecting blogs like most people collect stamps or bakugans. What can I say, I love to blog! I also cannot figure out for the life of me the whole OpenId thing that will direct you back to the blog of choice. I seriously will not get back the hours I have spent trying to figure the whole thing out! So if you have been directed here, to my old blog that I miss dearly, here are my blogs to choose from... (Digital Scrapbooking Blog) (Project 365 blog) So far behind btw! (Book Blog) (Family Blog) (Estes Family Blog)

Ridiculous, I know!

My Night Out!

Tonight I get to get all dressed up and attend a yearly event that my husbands company provides every October. We stay in a 5 star resort, have an incredible dinner and most importantly, I get to sleep in tomorrow morning! I am very excited! I am in need of a night away from the kids, we both are.
Just a few things before I leave. We have brought the Speed Scrap to Scrapbookgraphics...

Tomorrow night at 8pm(est) we will have a mgl Style Speed Scrap in the SBG Chat Room. I will be hosting tomorrow and would love to see you there!

Also, for those of you in my area(Mesa, Az) There is a benefit concert for Stephanie(NieNie Dialogues) and Christian Nielson at Mountain View High School Auditorium tonight at 7pm. Mindy Gledhill, who is one of Stephanie's childhood friends and singer/songwriter will be performing. NieNie's girls Claire and Jane will be performing a song with her. There will be crying! But what a wonderful thing! People are actually flying in from Colorado, California and Buffalo to attend this event. Tickets are still available!

$15 tickets available now at

and at Pioneer Book in Mesa

If you don't know about the details about NieNie there are links on my sidebar. I read her sisters blog daily to get updates! You will be amazed by the generosity of the blogging world, or maybe you won't, it's so big yet so small. I promise you will laugh and you will cry. The latest news is that the doctor's are slowly waking her up from her 2 month slumber!
I made some flair buttons for you today to sport on your blogs or forums if you wish. They are 600px so you will need to resize them down. I also included the PSD format for my flair so that you can make your own flair! I would love to see what you come up with!

Got me some lovin's!!!

I keep waiting to post until I had a freebie to give all of you, but at this rate I may never post. I have gotten 3 sweet awards that I have been shamelessly neglecting. So while I am sitting here watching my little guy tot around my house, forgetting how stinking cute it is when they first start walking and trying to ignore the fact that i have 5 kids today(watching my friend Misti's kids) and one of them just hid in my dryer, I am going to write a post.

First of all, sweet JillianRoze sent me an 'I love your blog' award...

...and then another fun member from my CafeMom group PinkaholicMom from Aloha Monkey Tales tagged me. By the way she has a way cute blog and then another blog dedicated to 'Twilight' which I haven't checked out yet because I just finished the 3rd book.

Then this morning I had another message from sweet JillianRoze(PriddySweetScraps).

This award is called the
"Proximidade Award" or "Friendship Around The World Award".
Originally this award was written in Spanish, but it translates to highlight blogs that are pleasing or special in some way, and also to extend the hand of friendship around the world.

So I am supposed to tell you 8 things about myself that you didn't know, I hope I can think of that many!

1- I have 6 brothers and 4 sisters.

2- I've been to Hawaii once when I was 12. (Too young to fully appreciate the beauty)

3- I was born in Oregon.

4- I wrote a screen play when I was 13. (I didn't like the way North and South ended)

5- I fed all the stray cats when I was little so they would stay and we'd end up keeping them.

6- I played the violin for 6 years.

7- I had a horse when I was 4.

8- I have a tatoo on my back of daisies and ivy.

Whew! I had to dig deep there. And now to pass these on. These people have awesome blogs, are amazing people in some way or are truly good friends and some, all of the above... TAG, you're it!

Flerg's (Have you seen her new blog)




NieNie (Still being updated by her sister)

CJaneRun (NieNie's sister)

Aloha Monkey

Rachel (A friend since I was in 7th grade)



I know I could think of a ton more!

Also, I have had some requests for me to tell the my daughter and the bishop story so quickly, here goes...

We have our primary presentation and so the kids sit up on the stand. Hensley is a sunbeam so she is right in front and the bishop is sitting directly behind her. I don't know why, maybe she's got a huge badankadonk that I don't realize but she always, always has a wedgie, ALWAYS! So Hensley in the middle of the presentation lifts her dress up almost to her head and pulls out her wedgie, with the bishop directly behind her! What are you going to do? I always thought little girls were prim and proper! I have learned a lot having a girl!

My daughter mooned the Bishop

We had our primary presentation today at church. Hensley was in it this year as a Sunbeam and well, the title says it all!

The End

Some fun news and a freebie!

OK everyone! I have made my final decision, I'm sure no one else has as hard a time than me with making decisions that just really aren't that crucial! LOL! My blog is almost ready but I have decided to keep my digital scrapbooking here on this blog.
So, for my fun news, I actually have a few fun things. First of all, I went onto my Cafe Mom group this morning and I have hit over 1,000 members! How did that even happen? I started it because I couldn't find a group and wanted to connect with other digital scrapbookers. I was afraid no one would even join! Now a little over a year my group is over 1,ooo and I'm on the creative team of my favorite designer. Even better than that, Ellie has become a good friend. We had dinner at Chili's last week and let me tell you she is as sweet in person as she is in our little scrapbook community. I leant her my Twilight and New Moon books(because I haven't finished Eclipse or Breaking Dawn yet) and she has read the whole series twice since then. So if you are a Twilight fan go to Ellie's blog because she is requesting feedback about the interest of some Twilight freebies! Yes Ellie Please!!!
Also, Ginger from Gingerscraps Freebies blog has opened her own store!!! YAY! (She is having server problems at the moment but keep checking back) Ginger is one of my members at CafeMom and is the sweetest person ever. I went to her website last night and clicked on her team members link and all her team is from our group, including her sister Julie, Jill from Priddy Sweet Designs and Becka, who does the most amazing layouts!!! I'm so proud, I have a little tear in my eye! LOL! She has a couple of fun freebies but this one is my favorite...

Why aren't you designing Melanie? Good question! I've got a few things in the works that I am really excited about but more about that later!
One more fun announcement! Tracy, my fellow team member has opened her own store also! Yay Tracy! She has some really cute products in there and her site is sooo cute! She has an awesome Halloween kit out called 'All Hollow's Eve' and I have already played with it. Here is my fun page...
And as a special treat to you, Tracy has given me permission to give all of you the Quick Page to my layout! Thank you Tracy! So here is your QP...

Have a great rest of your weekend!!!
