So hope everyone had a great day yesterday!
ours was really amazing, a great day, lots of people all day.... I even got to see some family that i hadn't seen i a really long time so it was so much fun and then about 25 for supper..... WOW! It was so much fun though.... at about 11 I tiptoed up to bed and left a few men still sitting around the table playing rook and believe me I wasn't missed! Anyway It was my turn thiw week to do a technique at OLW and for some reason over there it didn't post all the pics, mind you blogger isn't really liking it eather and posted them in the wrong order but I will #them so that you all know which order to do them in!

This is what your tag will look like after you have done the transfer so this first pic is # 5
This is #4 using your bone folder.... 'burnish' your image down really well

This is #3 paint on your gell medium and then get ready to transfer your image

This is #2, lay your printed picture face down and smooth it over with your hands using very firm pressure

This is #1, the supplies you need to do these great transfers... the gell medium, i got mine at Michaels, a bone folder, a tag or something to transfer your picture on to and of course your picture... You can use a picture right from your ink jet printer just remeber to print it out on regular computer paper.... i have done this with words and images and it works really great.... oh and one more thing after you have got your image on to your tag and pressed it down really firmly wait for about 10 or 20 seconds before lifting the image off!
These are two tags that i did using this method and they worked great! Have a great day ladies and an awesome week! Remember the next word is up at OLW next Wednesday!

I guess I can share my news now.......since most of you know
I'm........................................ not pregnant...............but I AM going to be a Grandma! Like how weird is that? It wasn't very long ago that I was sharing the news that I was prego... as Tannis would say in a state of Knockedupedness with all my family and friends and now it is my daughter going through the same experience! Wow.... time has a way of creeping in and having the years go by fast.... so now my next question for you all is how about coming up with a name for me? and by that I don't mean a nasty name although I am sure there are times! lol I am not sure about the whole Granny thing or even Grandma for that matter( well maybe by July I will look like a Grandma!) anyways lets come up with a 'cool' name and i will send a R.A.K to the one that is chosen! How does that sound? Anyway for all you ladies that couldn't attend my Fall Festival a great time was had by all.... lots of fun and laughing and great times with friends.... stay tuned for the Spring Thing! I just wanted to post a couple of new layout:
I have kits left for both of these layouts, so let me know if you are interested!For those of you waiting for the class layout for the 29th I am hoping to have it posted by the end of the week! I have been taking a couple of days to hang out and relax so I hope to have it posted right away! Thanks to everyone that made Fall festival so much fun! Talk to you all soon!

Making the most....
of the "firsts' and the "lasts"....

so after reading this blog
i got thinking about a couple of things and just how fast time flies... before you know it Life changes.... instead of little kids running around the house and getting the walls dirty with their sweet little fingerprints, you have big teenagers bringing their friends over and hanging out! Like where do those sweet days go? So glad for scrapping that you can go back and check all those great memories out! after reading Karens blog I too thought about "last times." Like the last time your boys will kiss you, becuse that is so not cool... and the last time the kids will hold your hand...just cause you don't do that in public...or the last time someone called you "mommy" Even thinking about changes and how i have a daughter thats
married and of course a new son in law, like what? Honestly where do the days go? Make the most of oppurtunities now while we can.... Tuck your little munchkin in tonight instead of just sending them to bed... don't forget to tell that special someone that you love them... make the most of all these sweet oppurtunites because honestly if someone had told me how fast all this would go I would never have believed them.....

tomorrow the new word comes out for OLW make sure to check it out...

one of the new package layouts for sale... " I loved her first"

Cole: Mom you should really come golfing with Cody and me on Thursday.

Lynn: I am really not in to golfing.... i don't think so.

Cole: Come mom you would really like it!

Lynn: No I don't want to but I will take you boys.

Cole: We really just need you there to rent the cart and drive for us!

Cole: Pleeeeeeeeeeeease! you will love it!

So it is really nice to know that they really didn't want me to golf just to drive the cart! Gotta love BOYS!

You know it is pretty bad when your mom goes on and says ohhhhhhh no change.... anyway no excuses other than not much to talk about so I would rather not bore everyone with my life! I do have a couple of cute pictures though that Tere sent me.... we haven't seen all the photographers pictures yet but she did send me a few for a little glimpse of what they will look like! We will see them this week so looking forward to that! Had all the kids here for supper and all there friends so that was lots of fun!!! Have a great week everyone!


Thursday, August 02, 2007

BEWARE......Bad blogger.....

so I know that i have been a very bad blogger but..... if anyone is having the same kind of summer I have been having you will all understand! Who wants to be on the computer 24/7 when it is 30 degrees ouside and remember.... winter is coming! I hate it when I say that but it is true and then we will all wish we had spent more time outside and doing fun summer things! Life is busy though! Manda and Cody got back from there honeymoon in Jamaica and had a great time! All the wedding stuff is over except for an open house at the end of August and before you know it we will be getting the kids back to school and starting classes again! WHEWWWWWWWWW it will go fast! Just wanted to share a picture of my NEW addition..... the son in law.... This is all of us for now anyway and I will post some more pics as I get them!
Have a great long weekend everyone!

Monday, July 23, 2007

Home, warm home...This will be long....

Well here we are back to the REAL world..... back to Reality! The wedding is over..... hard to believe but anyway it was amazing! I will share a little bit of our week and then share a couple of pics! I don't have too many, I left it up to Tere, our photographer..... who was absolutely amazing! We left Calgary on Wednesday in the 30 degree heat and arrived in Salmon arm to rain! We go to the cabin and Manda said the forecast was for rain all week! I was like great, then I thought there is no way it can be beautiful in Alberta and rainy in B.C. it just doesn't happen! So Thursday we woke up and it was pouring..... and it pretty much poured all day! There was a little bit of a break in the afternoon, so everyone went out in the boat and did a little bit of wakeboarding. Thursday night the weather seemed to get a bit better but they were still calling for more rain! We came up with a little bit of a plan 'B' incase of rain on Saturday. Friday morning we woke up and it was pouring again! We were too busy Friday to worry too much about it except that we really wanted to set everything up on Friday.... We had lots to do so off we went to pick up rentals and groceries and so on. We arrived back to the cabin and it was pouring harder than ever but we thought well stuff still has to get done so we were under a canopy and tried to do our best and get a little bit accomplished. There were still people arriving and there were also people that were delayed on the highway due to normal highway activity but most had arrived by Friday night safe and sound! There was no setting up on Friday night because of the rain and we left the cabin at about 11 for Salmon arm. We left a few details of how things should be done and left Annette in Charge( She is absolutely amazing, and without her it would have been a disaster!) Saturday morning was gloomy, very gloomy and damp but not pouring! Then the hair appointments started at 8. Tere came and joined us and the day began....

We had the sweetest morning ever and still no rain so we thought ok hope for no more rain! we arrived back at the cabin about 15 minutes before the ceremony was to start..... no rain, the clouds started to break up a bit and it was absolutely amazing! Everything was beautiful and perfect! No rain..... Sunday morning we woke up to rain! It truly was a miracle! Here are some of the pics and when I get more I will post them!

Hope everyone has a great day, and when you are all dying off in the heat just think of the rain and cool temperatures in B.C. and you will all be fine!
