It's a blog hop!

Welcome to my part of the Sassy Lil' Sketches GOING GREEN blog hop! I'm glad you stopped here as you're hopping along!

Here's the sketch from Cherie and Katie - I hope you find it as inspirational as I did!

Here's my layout!

Here's the details of the blog hop.

Create a project (card, layout, or altered) using the Going Green sketch from above AND one of the Going Green critera listed below:

1. Go Green - create a project predominantly green in color

2. Reduce - create a project that reduces your stash - using product that is ALL at least a year old (no new product)

3. Reuse - create a project with 'leftovers' from another project

4. Recycle - do a project with something that was used for something else first.

We will be offering a random Grand Prize for one participant.

Participants can get their name in for the prize by 1) becoming a follower of the Sassy Lil' Sketches blog, 2) leave a comment on each of the DT's blogs, 3) by doing the "Going Green" challenge and linking it by Mr. Linky to the Sassy Lil' Sketches blog by 9:00 pm eastern time on Sunday March 14th, 2010.

Thanks again for stopping by! The next stop on the blog hop is Cheryl's blog

some scrapbook stuff...

I have a lot of scrapbook stuff to share with you! :)

this is my first layout for the sassy lil sketches blog - check it out at

this layout was supposed to be for a blog hop for sassy sketches and a couple other sites. but i was supposed to use a couple other requirements other than just the sketch, and i kind of got wrapped up in using the great sketch, and forgot about the other stuff. but here it is anyway...

and this is the stuff I made for the scrapfreak design team for February. It's using Pink Paislee cupid line of products. SO STINKING CUTE!

in other news... I spent a good chunk of the last weekend working on my scrapbook room - it's almost useable. and now i want to do a little decorating in there to make it a really fun spot.
I'll share pictures when it's all done!

FINALLY - we made it to Grand Island

After getting snowed out 2 times we finally got to go to Drew and Michelle's last weekend to celebrate Eli's 6th birthday. Here are just a few pictures of the good times we had. :)

boys at the hotel pool - theyr'e a bunch of little fish!

Saturday we went bowling for Eli's birthday party.
here's drew... rolling his suitcase full of bowling balls... YES - there were many jokes made!

9,8,6 and 6 (for a couple more weeks)

love bowling shoes!

Caleb showing how it's done

Dad helping Eli

Drew hel... um - no - actually i'm not sure what they're doing. boys are weird.

Levi - giving it a little lean - hoping to move the ball with his jedi mind force

we had a fun time... but i tell you what - who know bowling was so dangerous?
mom got hurt, Michelle pulled a muscle, it hurt my arm i broke... we were a mess. :) but it was FUN! anything for the kids.
till next time
