My first Coluzzle....

I just bought my first Coluzzle and I love it. I got the circle templet. I was looking for a good, inexpensive circle cutter and I think I found it. Its so easy to use and it doesn't take up much room in my scrap room! Off to do some happy scrappy layouts!! Oh I can't wait!!!

I finally accomplished something!!

I really have been quite lazy the last couple of days. I need to get off my rump and do something. I have 4 online swaps I have to get postal. I should start doing some scrap pages, I just have not been in the mood. Oh my, not in the mood for scrapping. I don't know whats happening. I know its the weather, it is suppose to snow today, not look forward to that at all. I really don't like the winter, its depressing.

I did sitting in front of the computer last night and made my first attempt at a self made digi kit. I am quite proud of myself for accomplishing that. What do you think? I know it is simple, but hey its my first. It took me forever to do. The Paper took about 4 hours ( I swear), but that was my favorite part. I still need some practice at kit making. It was alot of fun.

Quote of the day

Helen Keller

Go! Fight! Win!

The cheerleading competition went awesome. I got so many pictures. When I get them developed I will post them.

There actually was quite a bit of argueing going on between the parents and judges. Well see the competition was held at the Cheboygen Junior High School and when a town or school is the hostess for the competition that town/school is not allow to participate in the competition, but the Cheboygen cheerleaders was competing and they took 1st in every division. All the judges where from Cheboygen, so you can see where this is going....PLAYING FAVORITES!!!! I have never seen so many parents upset and coaches!!

Well anyway we,"The Jets" took 2nd place in every one of our divisions, YAY!! Go Jets!!

I was such a long day. Oh and man are those bleachers hard!! It was inside this year. The school gym was so crowded and so hot. Let me tell you it was not a very big gym. All the girls looked so nice in their uniforms. Let me tell you I am such a proud MOM!!!!
