Well it sure has been a busy week for me!! Sorry I haven't posted all week-but things have just been so hectic and I didn't really have any LO's made so I didn't have anything to share with you. But I am back this week and there is lots to show you. I had a three day weekend because of Labor Day and believe me I am loving it!!!! I have spent a lot of time on my computer this weekend and finally got some LO's done. But I will get to that a little later.
We had two of our granddaughters over night Friday night and I had lots of fun with them. They are so funny! After playing with them for about 2 1/2 hours straight I was looking for some reprieve.LOL! We went outside and I watched as they built some fun little things with wooden blocks-they love to be outside. Than we came in and of course I have the singing bears so we have to turn on the singing bears-all 4 of them-and than we sing and dance around the living room. PLUS the tv is on with cartoons-so you can imagine the little music show we had going on.hahaha! But after about 2 1/2 hours of entertaining the two I ask my honey when do they get ready and go to bed? He says not until about 8:30-9:00! Well it's only 7:30 and I'm whooped! Not to mention I want to get on my computer!LOL! So I get their jammies on and we settle down and watch Scooby Doo! Well about 8:30 I say it's time to go to bed now and I take the younger one Brooke in by Grandpa and she gets in bed with him and settles in-well the older one, Paige announces that she is staying up for a little while yet with Grandma. Grandpa says only for a LITTLE while so we come back and start watching some more cartoons-and all of a sudden here comes Brooke with her happy little butt coming back out too!LOL! Now I have both in my lap watching tv. Well 9:00 comes and they both go to bed and finally I have some time to myself to get on computer.YIPPEE! I no sooner turn on the puter and I am sooooo tired I can't keep me eyes open-so I shut her down and off to bed I go too!hahaha! I love our grandchildren to pieces, but they sure wear this old lady out!!!

Now for some LO's. This first LO I made for the weekly challenge at ScrapbookMax last week. We had to make a LO using at least 10 pix and this is what I came up with.
I used Deanne Gow-Smith's (Moonbeam) kit "Azure" for this. You can find it here. Deanne has some really beautiful things in her store. She is very artistic and draws a lot of her things by hand.
DSO has some personal use grab bags up for sale starting today. Below is Kimb's and Jazzy's.
The personal use grab bags are on sale for one week only!! So head on over there and pick them up-they are well worth it.
This one is my dear DIL and I made this using the goodies in Kim Broedelet's new personal use grab bag on sale at DSO starting today. You can pick it up for only $3.00 for one week only!
I used Jazzy's wordart on this one from her personal use bag at DSO. This is made with a kit by Julie Mead a guest designer at scrappers guide for the month of August. The kit is "Timeless Classics" which was given free to premier members. Just a little plug for Scrappers Guide. If you become a premier member every month you get a tutorial for photoshop and a free kit. Every month they feature a different designer and one of her kits.
OH! In case anyone wants to know-that is me sitting on my dad's lap many many years ago.LOL! Well that's it for today.

Till next time take care and have fun!!

AWWW- but that is a nice tired PK- hee hee. I'm looking forward to my turn eventually. And when you talk like that with the kids climbing in your lap to watch cartoons- it makes me miss my mom- she used to LOVE doing that with Nathan too.
LOVE your LO's and thanks for the blurb too!
Sending hugs and loves
