Oh Happy Day

Well everybody these days seems to be in love with Echo Park Paper CO and guess what so am I! I purchased the walk in the park collection and WOWZA-everything you need is right there. I created this lo and the only thing from my stash is of course some cardstock and the lil pearls on the butterfly. Can u believe it I didnt even need Thickers for a title. Now for those of you how dont know me -that is like a RECORD for me. I always feel the need to add sum more embellies-ya know junk it up. But these pps and stickers have it all. The best part they are soooo reasonably priced. I finished this lo on Wed night and cant wait to work with it some more this weekend. I am soo in love the new collections they have released for holidays-cant wait to get my hands on ALL of them-but shhh dont tell my hubs-hehehe.

This lo is about my son Tucker and his friends Bailee & MAddie. They used to be our neighbors when all the kids were born-well the Calhouns got a job transfer and left us and then 2 yrs later we did the same. We have tried to see each other at least once a year since they first moved. Well lucky for the kids this summer while Tuck was in town visiting his g'parents, Tonya & the girls came in town and they got to spend the day together. I was sad becuz I couldnt be with them but at the same time very thankful they could be together. Stay tuned for a ton more lo's about this day-thanks to Tonya for taking pics for me. luv ya BFF

toodles, Tami

Gettin Sketchy

Well I had a challenge before me to scrap a lo based on my outfit. This is part of the Scrap u courses over @ Scrap-Friendzy (you should come join us) So I chose to scrap from my outfit that I wore on College Colors Day(my fave workday of the year)
The lo is based on the awesome sketch by Diana over at Sketchy Thursdays (love those sketches to pieces-they have produced some of my best stuff) I decided this time to keep the lo very simple (very very hard thing to do for me). So I used all the elements from my outfit---denim of course from my jacket, the bling in the flower and the dots for the title-from my shirt and my jacket, the orange from my shirt and the vols trim matches my watch, and just in case you are wondering "What on earth is that black circle in the flower" Well its a tire, I save all the ones I find laying around. (My oldest tears apart every car and truck he ever gets-DRIVES ME CRAZY) I used it becuz it represents the black on my flip flops (BTW is not in the pic) and of course it goes with my photo-LOL! Thanks for looking and hey maybe you should give it a try too-its soo fun!

Okay so I didnt realize the pic's were so small that you couldnt read the journaling. Let me explain the lo-cuz I hate when I see peoples work and you dont understand the lo. One year we had to take my dad's Explorer to Knoxville for a game (cant remember why) anyways the last thing he said to me was "Dont put all that UT crap all over my Explorer"---YEA RIGHT! So we took a picture and framed it for him and put it on his desk at work-hehehehe

Meet Lucky

Well here's another lo about my Tucker. He has been fascniated by caterpillars and every year when school starts they are everywhere. So everyday for about the first 2 weeks of school, when I pick him up from afterschool care he has a new pet. For some odd reason he always names them "lucky"-why I dont know cuz trust me they are not lucky-they never live long. I saw a sketch over on the Bo Bunny blogpost and thought it would be perfect for these pics and of course these pps that I have been HOARDING-I finally made myself cut them and I am so glad I did!
