Yes, I am a Nerd!!

I have to admit it......I am a big nerd and hopeless romantic.  In the past months, I have been so excited for Kate & William's wedding.  So true to form, I woke up at 3a.m. this morning, turned on the TV or should I say, tellie, to watch this moment in history. 

My sister and I woke early on a July morning 30 years ago to watch Diana & Charles' wedding.  Even though 400+ miles separate us now, Judy woke up at her home and we have been texting each other regarding everything royal we are together in spirit!!

The dress:
Catherine Middleton's Wedding Dress
I have to say that this is one fabulous dress!!  Simple, elegant and something that will be just a beautiful in 50 years as it is today.

Well, that is my thoughts today...

Bo Bunny Layout Challenge!

Hi, everybody!  Back again with my re-entry to the Bo Bunny Layout Challenge of Friday, March 25, 2011.  I had originally posted my entry with my April 1 post.  But when I looked at it this morning, I decided that it was missing something and so I deleted the photo from the post, went to my craft room and zjooshed up my layout.  Now I am happy with it and it is done!   Here is a link to the challenge: Immediately I was drawn to this challenge and thought that it was so much fun and plus scrapbooking is all about telling your life stories.  What a great way for those that will see this layout to get a snapshot of who I am right now!! 

The title is "essential to me" and the journaling reads, "Crosswords for when I am waiting. IPod so I will remember to buy a power cord. Wad of keys so I don't lose my frequent shopper card. Nail file, tape measure, screw driver, cough drops, Tylenol & Sudafed and....A cork screw because you never know when you might need to share a glass of wine with a friend".

Here is a look at the layout....."pre-zjoosh"

Yep, definitely better.  Till we meet again On My Gravel Road.

Bo Bunny Challenges!

Here I am again with another Bo Bunny Card Challenge!  This Tuesday Card Challenge from the March 29 edition of the Bo Bunny Blog. Here is the sketch that the challenge is based from:

And here is my interpretation of the sketch.  I made this card for my daughter and will be giving it to her tomorrow, April 2nd.  The outside reads "Did You Know?" and the inside says "That you are my hero?".  She truly is my hero, she has overcome so many obstacles and I am so proud of her...this is for you, Megan.

Hope you like it.......until we meet again on my gravel road.
