Hottie Hubbie! & Blog Candy!!!

BUSTED!!!! DH was viewing my blog on our new flat screen monitor - from WalMart, great price - and noticed that I had written about Anderson Cooper and Nick from BB8 House... and not about him... SO (as he is standing over my shoulder as I type this...) here is my hottie hubby!!! I fell in love with him the first time he picked on me at like age 5... Doesn't he look the coolest on his hot rod bike?! This is from his trip to Anchorage at the beginning of the month - the Denali Highway. Oh! This lady at our local "Harley Diner" told me that he looked like Garth Brooks!!! I almost lost it laughing - but he doesn't let me forget it - and puffs his chest out every time we go there to eat!!! LOL I think that he looks like Dean Cane, myself! Either way, my hottie hubby is my best friend - and #1 supporter of all my crazy crafting!!!
OK blogging buddies!!! He just threw out a prediction... he said that this post will get more comments then any other post (don't have much competition - I think 2 might be my highest! LOL) So!!! I think this calls for some BLOG CANDY!!!!!! Who is your secret movie star crush?! Post a comment by Monday - and DH says he will pick the comment he likes the best and the winner will receive a stash of goodies!!!!
Have a great evening!!!

OH!!! I almost forgot!!! News to Share!!

This is kind of work related, but cool anyway, I think...
I am a 4-H Youth Development Agent/Educator in Alaska and have worked with our Air Force bases in the state for the past three years. Eieslon AFB youth programs totally rocks and we have gotten some pretty prestigious awards over the past couple years - like Program of the Year from Boys and Girls Clubs of America, the Annie E. Casey Award through BGCA for our deployment efforts for youth and families, and now on the 4-H side of the house, my part of the Eielson youth programs, received the 4-H/Air Force "Aim High" Award!!! Whoo-hoo!!! It was pretty cool to get a phone call from the Pentagon congratulating me! OK, so it was an acquaintance through 4-H/Air Force youth programs that called, but he still is at the Pentagon! LOL And I get to go to Atlanta in October to a national 4-H conference and receive my award - and they are helping with some of the travel expenses. Very cool!!! OH!! And even better - we are staying in the OMNI/CNN building - so I have this little crush on Anderson Cooper - I think that I will have to seek him out for an autograph and photo! LOL
OH!! And we will only be three blocks from the Atlanta Mart!! Shopping!!! YEAH!!! These are the instances that I miss working downtown LA at the Fashion Mart - but I don't miss the traffic!
OK, have a great weekend!!!

Where Did August Go????

I can't believe that next weekend is Labor Day already!!!! What happened to the month of August?!?!
Just a reminder, speaking of August, if you are interested in getting your "Angel Wings" by becoming a demonstrator with The Angel Company, this month - I am offering new angels who sign with me - FREE SHIPPING on their starter kit! And this month The Angel Company is offering a Level C & Level D hostess set!! This is HUGE!!!! AWESOME!!!!
Let's see, I received the latest "Scrapbooking with Lisa Bearnson" book and mini scrapbook from QVC. It was pretty fun. I also received the new CARDS magazine this week too. AWESOME artwork in there!
So far, still Saturday morning, and not much completed yet... not even the house completely cleaned... don't you hate it when you know that you HAVE to clean, but totally don't want to!!! LOL
Here is an oldie, but goodie... It uses the set from The Angel Company called Everything Nice. CS is from DCWV, the little gone fishing sign is actually from a retired set - Grandpa's Cabin. The fish hanging from the fishing pole is from Camp Out. Colored with Prismacolor colored pencils and the Dove Blender pen. This Dove Blender pen rocks because you can refill it and change out the tip - it is awesome to use!! (I think that I have used awesome enough in this post! LOL)
Today I hope to get a DoodleBug house covered and decorated... we'll see how the crafting mojo kicks in! Maybe it is the lack of coffee?!?! Speaking of coffee (and I continue to ramble!), Burger King has the BEST TURBO coffee! It is some seriously strong coffee with a kick! I am addicted! $1.59 too, can't beat that!!!
Hey! And a shout out to new angels and newly promoted Team Leaders!!! Welcome!!!

Yeah for the Weekend!

I guess you know it has been a long week when Saturday morning hits and you either stay in bed for a few more hours OR you jump out of bed with vigor and can't wait to get things going to the playing can begin!!! I picked to jump out of bed... maybe not with so much vigor, but now that I have some caffeine in my blood, I am feeling some energy coming alive! LOL
Here is a little share... This one uses all products from The Angel Company. It was a fast and fun one! :)
Sorry this one is short, but I have to get the house cleaned and then off to go scrapping for the afternoon! YEAH!!! AND then we are having a going away party for a friend who is moving to Arizona. What a shock to the system that will be this winter! Anyway, a bunch of silly girls out on the town in Fairbanks, AK. Should be interesting, especially since most of us have never even been to a bar in Fairbanks!!! I would much rather have had a going away crop! LOL

Rainy dayz make stampin' dayz!

This week and weekend were kinda gloomy. Today the sun decided to shine and it was beautiful out! I did take advantage of the rainy dayz though to do some projects.
This first one is a little box for my hubby to put his pictures of his road trip from this last weekend. The paper is from the DCWV Rock Star Stack layered on top of some orange. The stamp is from a Harley Davidson set that I got a couple of years ago. This is just the coolest paper pack!!! I am thinking that Halloween cards might be really fun and different out of this stack!

This next one is an ATC that I did for a swap. I used two sets from The Angel Company - Circle Sampler and Wild West. Cardstock is DCWV and some solid brown from!?!?!? OH! and I used new paper from The Angel Company!!! I love this new one!!! It is called Winchester. The colors are yummy!!!!!!!
TGIW!!! Thank God is it Wednesday!!!!!!!
Keep on inkin!

Lazy Weekend!

Isn't a lazy weekend just what the Dr. ordered sometimes?!?!? Not a completely lazy weekend, I did get some crafting in and today read a book. "Pearl Jinx." (by Sandra Hill) It was pretty cute.

Here is a card that I made this last spring. I need to take some picts of my recent projects... anyway, the paper is from Whimsy Blossoms, designed by friend Mabelle. To make the diamonds (idea cased from a Creating Keepsakes layout - can't remember which month though) I cut strips of patterned paper and glued them side by side onto white CS. Then, I got out my trusty quilting rulers and cut me some diamonds. It was fun and I think it turned out pretty cute, too! :)

This one I did for a recent swap! I used Surf Shoppe from TAC and one of the new TAC stamp sets, Everyday Events to create this fun and totally easy card! I used Pantone markers to color the image and the flowers are Prima.
Hope that the weeks starts out "enjoyable!"
