Happy NFL Sunday my friends! I’m typing this as I’m watching the Raven’s play and I can’t say for sure whether this post will make sense or not LOL! I’m hoping for a Ravens win and a 49ers win so that the Harbaugh brothers *both coaches* meet up in the Superbowl…..rock on!!!
I have to go over to the high school at 5:30 to set up for the musical tonight but we are only staying for the first part to see Alexa & then going home….geesh why have a musical on an NFL playoff night…not wise LOL! Let me tell you a funny…..quite a few years ago I asked hubby for tickets to see “Mamma Mia” on broadway in DC for Christmas. Well he was so excited to give me the tickets that year because he got us 3rd row, oh yeah baby LOL. Well we later figured out why…..the tickets were for Superbowl Sunday….yeah no one was wanting to go that night LMBO! But hubby was a good sport and he took me without any complaints…that was the year Janet Jackson had the “wardrobe malfunction” heehee. So every year I tease him & say “hey wanna go to the theater in February?” But it was worth it, I loved that musical and danced & sang the whole time….ummm yeah no hubby does not sing & dance along with me….but he does tolerate me doing it well!

A Big Thank You to Pixie Dust Studios for having me as their winner for my Love Letters project here! I sure appreciate it!
So Sunday is Smash Book Day from now on….well as much as I can try LOL…keep me on track so I can actually document events, places, and stories this year. If you haven’t joined our “We R Smashin’, Scrappin’ & Journalin’” group over at the CMC Classroom, well then you are more than welcome to---everyone is welcome! Its not just for Smash Books---if you love scrapbooking or art journaling well then this group is for you too. We will have monthly themes/prompts/ideas that you can incorporate into your books and then you can enter into the challenge if you like to win a fun prize. Smash books are just an easier version of scrapbooking, they are meant to be done faster without as much layout/detail as you might spend on a traditional scrapbook….yes, which is why it appeals to me…LOL!
So I decided to do my next 2 pages on my last trip to Vegas where I met The Voice winner Javier Colon….yep I’m still a tad giddy about that…for sure!!
I printed out all my pictures that were taken by a random person at the Monster Cable Booth LOL. On this side I used one picture to make a pocket so I could slip in the autographed card he signed for me & Alexa---I didn’t want to adhere that down to the book.. The dice/card images are just clip art from the web that I printed and cut out….then added Stickles to bling it up….its all about Vegas baby!!
On this page I added more pictures and matted them like film rolls a bit and typed up the story…I can only write for so long so I tend to type my stories…my hands cramp up easily and then my handwriting becomes illegible and ugly LOL. I used a letter stamp and colored in the white with my Sharpie Poster Pain pen & added some white dots around the black cs. This page took me about 20 mins to do which was awesome…nice and quick. And Alexa worked on hers at the same time…she’s running a teen area at the CMC Classroom for Smash booking teens. If you are interested in getting some Smash Book Goodies….7 Kids College Fund has a great selection HERE (if you want to see what kind of pages are in each book go to the EK Success site & click on larger images to see insides).
