If you give a kid a paintbrush....

In a follow-on to my popular "If you give a kid a trophy...". They helped us put the sealant on the deck this past weekend.

Also occuring.. "If you give a kid a screwdriver". We got help putting together an 8 drawer IKEA dresser. I think the younger kid actually figured out how to put one all together by the time we got to #8. No pictures on that one, but I can tell you... after IKEA and deck staining, my arm and shoulder are sore, sore, sore...

Tally Scrapper!!!

Some of you may have noticed the button on my sidebar to a site called "TallyScrapper". It is a great on-line community where I have shared so many of my layouts, as well as made many cyber friends.

Well.... I made the design team for October - December!!! I am so excited, but a bit overwhelmed! The DT at Tally does more than layouts...we are "cheerleaders" for the site and are asked to get involved in all aspects of the site...not just posting layouts. I was already involved quite a bit at the site, so I didn't think it would be tough, but it still has been a bit overwhelming to me. And fun!!!

On October 15, the new monthly kit goes on sale. It is designed by a favorite at Tally (and at many other sites, I'm sure) named Staci Compher. You should check it out if you are a scrapper. They often sell out within don't delay! Start checking at about 1pm central time..

This was the kit that I received for Design Team. The layouts/projects in this post were done wtih product from the kit. It really is a great kit and I love how the Tally kits always mix new products with some older stuff in a great way!!

If you give a kid a trophy...

Could her smile be any bigger?

This is her coach giving her some personal praise as he was handing out the trophy. He did it for each kid and each one just beamed with pride!

My little girls didn't think this was funny...

but I did.

I was getting kind of tired of finding my tape and scissors and stapler all over the house. It seems to be working...
