Whew!! I made it!

I made it through hosting my first Speed Scrap. And I must say... it was fun!! I was really nervous. Like, hands shaking, nervous. Silly, I know. But everything went well, and everyone seemed to have a good time. I left it pretty open with lots of options, which is the way I like speed scraps :)

Here's the LO I based it on:

Something's going on with the SM website so I'll be back to post the link for the credits.
Oh, and one more bit of great news...
I had an interview today and I got the job!! I'll be working at a cemetery :) mwah ha ha! Don't start until next month. But I really needed to start bringing in some income after 15 years of being a SAHM. As our kids get older, they are getting more expensive! It's part time and the hours work perfect with my kid's school schedule, so it really feels like the best of both worlds. Thank you Lord for this awesome provision!!

I'm Hosting a Speed Scrap!!

It's my very first one and I am so excited (and yeah, a little nervous too).

Here's the ad:

And here's what you get just for playing!

OMGoodness! It's it just gorgeous!! I love all of Britt's stuff and was so excited she made this prize for us!!

So join me, if you can. The Scrap Matters site will be down for a short while for an upgrade (we have soooo many new people) so I might not get a chance to promote it a whole lot. I don't want to scrap alone. Please come!!

Speed Scrap Results

Here are the result of my two latest Speed Scraps. It feels so good to get a LO done in such a short time.

This is my SIL expecting her first child with my brother. She still has a few weeks to go but is looking more and more uncomfortable each day. I'm so glad it's her and not me!!

Geeks are Hot
I totally stole the title from the kit (it's the name of the kit too!) But Alamama (hostess of the SS) wanted some emphasis on the name and I don't think I could have done that in an hour :) I think it's totally cool. Zach hasn't seen it yet. Not really sure what he'll think.

Anyway, two more LOs done! Yay! Can't wait for two more next week!
