So.... I threw my hat into the submission for the Bella Blvd DT call they had a little bit ago.... but didn't make it... so I thought I'd share my layouts with you....
One of me and sister:
One of me and cute little miss aubree!
My delicious peach pie (a la project life)!
A little M&M action in Vegas for CHA this summer!
And a visit with Tigger.... for Winter CHA in Januaray!
I had so much fun playing with all of their products. Love that they keep the same color family so you can mix and match all of their lines together!
Thanks for letting me share....

What a great weekend I had with the 3-day walk...
here are some pictures of our fun weekend:
The 3-day Staffers had this on their sleeve. It's for Bridget. Bridget was an ambassador for Komen and lost her battle to Metastatic Breast Cancer in April.
We rocked it 80's fashion at Pit#3 this year!
Me and sister (thanks for the picture Kim Kuhne)!
Megan Clark (below with me and sister) is on one on of the biggest teams
in the 3-day family, Valley Girls and Guys.
in the 3-day family, Valley Girls and Guys.
Valley Girls and Guys raised almost $330,000 this year.
Here we are with Jen!
We had a couple of visitors with us on Day 2. Sheryl and Billi Jo cam to see us and wish us an early Happy Birthday! We got to work with them on Pit #3 for quite a few years as part of the medical team at Pit #3. They were walker stalkers on day 2.
There is a team called "Team Chesticles".
It is made up of a group of guys who walk the 3-day.
The cool thing, they walk wearing uniforms and this is hands down my favorite from the weekend.
Day 3 came with torrential downpours....
we were all bundled up and managed to get 10 people into our selfie!
After the walk, Pam, Bethany and I went to Azteca for some birthday dinner.
What a great way to end the weekend.
And.... here are the winners from my 3-day fundraising efforts are:
For the 3 clutches:
Orange = Shelly McLarin
Yellow = Jennifer McMurtrey
Black = Amanda Kossman
and the winner of the cute necklace is:
I'll be in contact with the winners to get them their prizes!
Thanks to everyone who donated to help end Breast Cancer.
Off to rest and get rid of this nasty bug.

One year ago this weekend I was embarking on my journey of walking in the Susan G Komen 3-day walk. I had trained and trained and raised the funds and walked day 1... I did 17 of 22 miles... totally fantastic right... Except my heart had different plans for me.
Last year on this day, September 15th, I woke up in my hotel room after spending a couple of hours in the ER at Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland after finding out my heart didn't like me so much. SVT was the diagnoses and after a lot of ekg's, a stress test, some other tests and one more episode (in November), I was able to get it fixed in February. So thankful for the staff at Evergreen Hospital and my sister for taking care of me and for my 3-day friend Megan for keeping me company when I couldn't walk (and for amazing insurance - not kidding).
Excited that I'm feeling better and thankful that it wasn't more serious!
Now... time to go watch those Hawks win!
Thanks for all your prayers and positive thoughts for me and my ticker when I needed them!

So... a couple of years ago, I decided to play along with Shimelle's Learn Something Everyday class..... I wasn't able to play along last year, but I decided to give it a go this year. Here is the cover or my book:
I'll post the book when I'm finished at the end of the month....

Ok.... so I have a slight obsession with A's since both my first and last name (for now) start with A's. I've been collecting them for a long time. I had them on one of my other walls in my condo, but they looked all bunched up and smushed together. It was on my list of things to do this summer to get it moved.... so I did it..
Here is the process:
I took my box o' A's....
and a piece of butcher paper
and laid out my A's.
I traced them.
then used my handy dandy washi tape to hang it up on the wall.
where I hammered nails right through the butcher paper (notice the dots on the paper)
but then I remembered that there is a light switch.... yep... forgot about that.... oh well...
I put all the nails in then just carefully ripped off the butcher paper and started hanging up all of the a's!
after swapping some around... this is the final product.
I'm love love loving this "A" wall now....
Thanks for checking it out!
happy crafting or decorating!
