Speed Scrap Preview and a Freebie!

I'm back and I have a preview of the participation prize for the Speed Scrap tomorrow night and a new freebie template! Brittney made the participation prize and it is such a fun mini kit you won't want to miss it. I love the colors...

So fun! Remember I am hosting this one so I hope to see you there. For those of you that don't know what a Speed Scrap is, I will be starting at 7pm (PST) and I will give you an instruction. Then every 10 min. I will give you another instruction and you will add to your page with what I tell you to add or embellish. You might start out with one picture but when I tell you to use a certain background paper it just might now be the paper for that photo! You never know what you will end up with but some of my speed scrap layouts are my favorite layouts.

I am trying to enjoy a quiet afternoon but my baby doesn't seem to want to take a nap! I've kicked my other kids out of the family room. I made a HUGE mistake of showing Hayden(my 7 year old) how to use the DVR. He's watching and rewinding and fast forwarding the same shows all day long! And then of course he has to act them all out. Which right now it's either Ben 10 or Star Wars so he's jumping all over the place. It's enough to make a sane person crazzzzy! I'm not even a sane person!LOL! So this morning I told him that the TV was broken and his dad would fix it when he was done working today. So he's forced to watch regular cable in his room without the DVR. Poor kid. So the moral of the story is do not teach your children how to work the DVR. We have at least 15 shows scheduled to record and every time we go to change the channel it warns us that we have 2 shows recording and do we want to cancel it! He's out of control! 3 weeks from today! Arizona is too hot for summer break! We should have our break during the winter so the kids can go outside!

I am on the second book of the Twilight series and I really like it. I'm trying to take my time so I won't be waiting too long for the last book to come out. Everyone that has read the book has told me that they didn't like the 2nd book but I have really enjoyed it. I haven't quite decided which team I'm on yet! I almost favor Jacob at this point. Please don't leave me mean comments, I haven't finished the series yet so I could change my mind! LOL! So I am going to get off the computer today so that I can read more of my book. But not without giving you your freebie. I made a template of my Daddy's Hands layout and if you missed the Word Art freebie from last month I have the link for you again! My layout has a hanging clip on it. I love that look. If you don't have any hanging clips in your collection check out Brittney's store at ScrapMatters, she has some great kits with hanging clips in them. She also has a template pack called 'Hang Em High.
