Day 4 On The Road!!

Good Afternoon!!

Just a little up date on my travel. As you know on day 3 we left Texas and headed to New Mexico this was not a good drive. We were on I-40 and the snow Begin to fall down, so much so that we had a 2-3 hour detour because they closed down I-40 from San Rosa to Albuquerque.

We winded up going I-25 to Santa Fe then to Albuquerque. The weather was still bad when we continued through Albuquerque to Gallup then over the state line in to Arizona. We crept all the way from Sanders to Flagstaff to Kingman on ice roads.

We saw two cars that was turned over and a couple of cars that had spin out. It was not a pretty site, but now we have made it back to California and we are on the road to Bakerfields, then it off to Fresno, Modesto, Manteca, Tracy, Livermore, Dublin, Walnut Creek, Concord then Pittsburg California. Home Sweet Home. Thanks for sharing my trip back home.

It's cold out side!

Good Evening,

I don't know about you, but it's cold outside here in Tupelo Mississippi, where I'm at. Family members are telling me back home in Pittsburg California it is raining like cats and dogs!.  (lol) So I was thinking that today's layout should go along with the cold weather. I used the Cricut Winter Frolic cart on this layout along with Peach Keen Stamp (pk-520 Winter Face). I would like to thank all my follower for dropping by and leaving a comment. I love reading them and learning from them.

Gift Layout

Good Morning,

Here is a layout kit that I purchased from Scrapbook and More here in Mississippi. All the paper that was used in this kit, was picked out by the store. When putting this kit to together I put my own little twist on the layout by adding some fine glitter on the title. The only down side with this kit was that I could not purchase additional paper. Because they only purchased enough paper to make there kits up. But I liked how the layout was done.

Well, now its time to pop on over to Kesha's blog and see what she has going on over there! I wonder if she is keep-n-up!

4 New Blog Awards

Hey ladies, I jut got 4 awards for my blog. So I guess I'm doing something right. The awards come from Dorcas at 4 Crafty Angles. One of the awards is called "Attitude". Which is done a little different then the rest.

With the "Attitude Award" you may have a chance to qualify for a $5.00 gift Certificate for Digi's with Attitude. What you have to do is state 3 things that make you different from everyone else and nominate  5 blogs. You can find more information and the requirements HERE.

I would like to send a BIG thank you to 4 Crafty Angles.

Here are the 3 things that makes me different

1.) I get inspiration from going out to the stores and looking on the Internet at different blogs and web sites. This allows me to open up my creative side and see where I can go with things. Almost like Taco bell says  "thinking out side of the Box"

2.) I love to shop for new and exciting hauls or as my Daughter says" Fab Fines".      

3.) I'm always learning and exploring something new.

So here are the 5 blogs I would like to nominate:



Cute and Some


Glora's Craft

So ladies I hope you pass along the awards as well. As always, thanks for stopping by........
