Sodalicious 'Sometimes it's hard to' challenge!

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share a journal page that I did, as a GD, for the latest Sodalicious "Sometimes it's hard to" journal challenge.

The challenge:

For me, I decided to create a page about "it's hard not to" eat chocolate! Yup, once you've opened up that yummy box of chocolate, it just keeps calling your name!
This is my attempt at drawing a lady eating!
As always, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Focus, spill, take shot lo!

Hi everyone!  Today I'd like to share a lo that I made so that I would remember a crazy, funny night that hubby and I had out together.

I refer to this lo as the....focus, spill, take shot lo! The reason for this is because one night, while out with hubby, we had stopped and got coffee to go and then we were walking around the city when I spotted a cool looking staircase that I wanted to take a picture of. In one hand, I held my coffee, and in the other, I tried to take the shot with my cell phone. The angle was just so that the coffee cup tilted and spilled coffee all over my jacket. My night-and-shining husband realized what I did and came to the recue....he said, "here, let me take that shot for you". Before we realized it......he was doing the same thing, only he spilt even more coffee because he didn't have a lid on his cup. We both roared with laughter....and thus focus, spill, take shot was created!!!

For this sweet memory, I used the round cork circles from the its-all-gravy-baby color kit as they reminded me of coffee coasters. I couldn't resist using the "joker" playing card, from the playing-card-variety-pack sense this was such a joke on both of us!

I also added the back of a green playing card, from the same kit, and a swat of black flowered material, from the black-out-mixed-media-color-kit to have some bursts of color on the lo.
Do you have a fabulous memory that's tugging at your heart to be scrapped? GA can help make those come alive with any one of our fabulous kits!
Here's to happy, fun scrapping!
As always, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Giveaway for a great cause!

Hi everyone! Today I am super excited to present you with my GIVEAWAY for an awesome cause! Recently, I learned that this beautiful young lady, Molly Malandrino, is signed up to run 26.2 miles in the Boston Marathon in order to raise money for a heart felt program for children called GoKids Boston. How sweet is this, that she is willing to give of herself and run all those miles, for young children that need help!
Four giveaway packages:

This program has an amazing facility that gets kids involved and interested in exercise, healthy living and nutrition. The beauty of this program is that it gives low income children the opportunity to build their self esteem and live active lifestyles.
Molly is committed to  raising $7,500 for their foundation and all the proceeds go directly into the youth and their program. She has raised much of what she's committed to, but she still needs help, FOR THESE I have decided to have a giveaway in order to help this young lady raise what she needs (and hopefully a lot more).
I have several packages that I would like to giveaway for all who donates to this cause. There is no set amount that I'm asking you to amount is too small!

Here is how it will work:
Everyone that donates, will be entered into a drawing. (I have several drawings to satisfy every scrapping style).
To donate, simply go to this Donation link and donate under Molly Malandrino's name so that she raises the money that she has committed to. When you donate, leave a note, on the donation site, saying you heard about donating from the blog (this is how donations will be verified). Then leave me a comment that you donated AND what drawing you would like me to put your name into.
If you would like TWO chances to win, donate and post this post to your blog.
It's that simple!
Extra ~ Extra ~ Extra:
The first TWO people that comment on my blog saying they donated and posted it to their blog, will be sent a goodie package, from me, that will consist of a mini 4 X 6 pattern paper pad, an alpha sheet, and a small stamp. You will also be entered into the drawing of your choice.
Here are the giveaway packages:
Scrapping kit:
Mixed media kit:
Journal kit:
Pocket scrap kit:
 Good luck to everyone. And thanks so much for your donation.
 Thank you, for helping a child that needs help....what a beautiful thing to do!!!!!!

Sodalicious journal page

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share a journal page that I did for the latest Sodalicious journal challenge. For this challenge, they want you to create something concerning 'superstition'. I had this newspaper article about my daughter as a skier, with bib #13, so I decided to use this to do my page.

When she was 13 years old, she was ski racing, and during this one season they gave her bib #13. When they called her name, to come get her bib, she looked at me, with questioning eyes. What does a mother say to her daughter that just got bib #13 for the season????????? I wanted to re-assure her, so I looked her straight in the eye, and told her that #13 was a lucky number! Of course I was dying inside!!!!!!
The challenge:

Here's a close-up:

And to answer the question that many of you are wondering......She had a wonderful season....she was the number one skier! Yes, #13 is a lucky number!
As always, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
