Happy Weekend everyone! Hope you are planning on having a great one! We don’t have any big plans other than Riley’s band concert at noon today---it’s a festival grading competition so crossing fingers all goes well LOL! I’m still recovering from being sick so my movements are fast nor are they good hahaha…so I won’t be doing too much other than getting some groceries and doing some crafting me thinks. I am NOT good at being sick, I just hate it and there is nothing worse than having to lay in bed feeling like crud. I did get some reading done and finished 2 books when I wasn’t dozing cuz’ I could barely hold my head up for 2 days. I read Kristin Hannah’s “Home Front” which is a must-read, it was soooo good, made me blubber which then made my head ache worse…but it was worth it. Hubby came in and saw me blubbering and thought I was crying from pain and asked if I needed to go to the ER LOL…ummm no me thinks not! She is the author of one of my all-time fave books “WInter Garden”. Then I read “Once Upon a Secret” by Mimi Alford…if you are a Kennedy family fanatic like me you will want to read this…very interesting. Makes you think about the naivete of a 19 year old girl and the hold a powerful man can have on someone…very good read. If you love to read then we’d love to have you join us at the BookEndz Group at the CMC Classroom. Its open to everyone & you only need to love to read to join us…we have a fun chat/cyber party at the end of each month to chat about the book, give some prizes away and announce the next month’s book selelction!
Not only am I a book fanatic (yes I read 2-3 books a week, yes I know you are thinking when do I do that…late at nite when I should be sleeping) but I’m a music fanatic too. Between Amazon & ITunes I seriously could go broke LOL! So I’m loving the new Lionel Richie collaborations with country artists (so far with Blake Shelton, Shania Twain, & Billy Currington)..they are awesome. And I’m going to see Jason Aldean & Luke Bryan (yeeeeehawwwww) on March 23rd…front row baby…so excited! But I will always remain Tim McGraw’s #1 fan….always…love him….and his newest songs are no exception. My fave of the batch is “Better Than I Used to Be”….omg….that song gives me chills…I love it! So thought I’d share it all with you…cuz hey he’s hot…he can sing…and did I say he was HOT???????!!!
PS—sidenote…for those that saw the news about the flight attendant that went beserk on the American Airlines plane this past week…yeah I WAS NOT ON THE FLIGHT…THANK GOD…I promise I didn’t do it…but she woulda freaked the HELL outta me LOL. Not sure what I’m tallking about….go see HERE!

I used these AWESOME new papers by MME Miss Caroline line “Dilly Dally (the whole darn line is a must have..yeah I have the whole darn line…want to join me…go HERE to buy)!! I distressed all the edges with my Zutter Distress machine (cuz I wuv it), tied a bow with my Bow Easy and added a button to finish it off. I KNOW, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, NO PUNCHES OR DIE CUTS USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS CARD….UNBELIEVABLE I KNOW…LOL!! But it does have a ton of layers and is thick & heavy as heck The sentiment is from a PTI set—I thought it appropriate!
She got colored up with my Copics, yup she did! I used lots on her: BG04,BG01,BG0000 / Y15,Y11,Y000 / R29,R22,R20 / E11,E00 / C9,C5,C3,C1,C00 / E49,E25,E33,E31. And of course I added some stickles to sparkle this gal up (and yes she has stickles-sparkly eyeshadow on too). I just love her, she’s a fun one…sassy…I like it!!!
