BTW...Monica at TTT is apparently awesome! I emailed her with an idea for a transparency and she emailed me back within 20 minutes with it done!!! I guess there is also this wishlist challenge or contest; idk what it's really about, but I just worked on my wishlist today and went from 2 items to about $500 in 20 minutes!! LOL!

Submitted a LO yesterday.
My latest LO of Matthew at dh's softball game was approved for the June mag today... how funny is that?!
What a silly and fun message board!
On a side note, I'm learning, with some friends from 2Peas, how to use my ImageReady to make blinkies!
I made one of my name, but it's not exactly working. Let me see if I can get it in here:
Yeah, see? It's not blinking...it is on PhotoBucket though: Lindsey
Okay, so it's not blinking on that link, either...but I'm working on it!
Off to do a ScrapStreet Saturday night red-white-blue layout from today's Memorial Day Parade pics...wanna see 'em? How precious are these?!?

I did it - today I completed my 2nd ever design team application. I'm desperately trying not to get my hopes up, as I didn't make the first one I tried. I'm so very new to the application process, and it was a big step for me to even try for this one - I'm not a huge fan of rejection! Failure, I can take - I learn so much from my mistakes. Rejection? just plain sucks! Anyway... time will tell. The good news is, I created 3 layouts that I really truly love (well, one I have to fix; it just isn't cutting it) and I'm trying to be happy with just that in case the outcome isn't exactly what I hope for... Nonetheless, I love the new little board and I'm having fun over there anyway. Making some new friends and enjoying chatting with Pam =)
C'mon over...let them know I sent you: FromHere2Scrapternity

Here it is! Took Becky Fleck's Urban Couture altered frame class at Creative Gatherings Saturday and had a blast! McKenna went, too and she was an angel! Becky insisted that McKenna be in the picture, too... Behind us is Amy Goldstein from Pink Martini - she brought in some adorable altered cd case kits - it's on my wish list!

I'm a bit crazed today! I'm having trouble keeping up with all I want to do! I started last night at ACOT - I love their crops - they are above the top! I got 2 1/2 layouts done yesterday and one today so far - but it's only noon. I'm also checking into CP, of course, cause it's just like home. I've also been popping in and out to CMK and FH2S - new boards to me, but such nice people!
In a little while I'm off to meet Becky Fleck! She's at Creative Gatherings and we're working on a mosaic frame with Urban Couture! I'm so excited! I would have taken the Color Me Happy brag book class this morning, but I didn't have a sitter =(
So happy day to you! And remember, I'm known as LindseyK75 all over the scrapping world - come say hi!

"My life is one gigantic scrapbook - each day, a new page."
It went through a few stages:
*I live in one gigantic scrapbook. Every night I turn over a new page.
*Each page makes a scrapbook, as each day makes my life.
*My life is a scrapbook and each day is a new page.

1. daughter, sister, wife, mother, Godmother (in no particular order, just wanted to get all those out of the way.)
3. athletic state of mind
4. bit of a tomboy, but like dresses after 8 pm
5. (again, taking the easy way out:) short(5'1"), blond(-ish), blue(eyes), okay not quite 5'1" and I thrive on my sense of humor.
ABOUT MY SCRAPBOOKING
1. I have no style - it always changes
2. I'll try anything once, usually twice or three times
3. love my browns
4. love my patterned paper - prefer to burn cardstock
5. I print all my pics at home - ALL of them!

One of the most amazing moments in my life was the day my mother handed over all of my grandmother's scrapbooks because mom's just not a scrapbooker (she tried, but doesn't get the enjoyment that I do.) I sat on the floor of my scraproom for about 4 hours after Matthew went to bed, looking through her books, laughing, crying, in amazement. The only things missing were my grandmother, of course, and the description of what I was seeing.
THAT's why I scrapbook. Whether it be a moment, a day, an event, just a photo session of trying to capture that one good Christmas photo of a two-year-old in front of the Christmas tree, someone, some day, will enjoy reliving my memories; and they might just like the pretty pictures, too.
Create My Keepsake sent me here to blog today - if I haven't already, I'm adding them to my favorite little scrapbooking sites on my side links; I'm pretty new there, but it's a fun and inviting place to be. Check them out, come by, say hello: http://www.createmykeepsake.com/forum/index.php
