Favorite Photo Friday...even though it's Saturday!

****EDIT TO POST**** I must appologize for my mistake in naming Tammy the winner of the "Guess How Much Cardstock I Have?" contest. As it turns out, I misread the name. However, due to this being MY error, I will still award Tammy a prize, just because it was not her fault I was a dork, PLUS, I will give the rightfull winner, Beth Gorney, the prize that she won. So Beth, maybe this is a good reason to get you to scrapbooking, you need to now pick up your prize. Thank you to the lady or ladies, that pointed out my error.


I MUST apologize for being so lax with my posting, the end of the week got a little crazy. I was called into work at the Drs office, and well.....things got missed, including my Favorite Photo on Friday, so I figured that nobody would mind if I posted it on Saturday, and since it is my blog I can do WHATEVER I want. So this is my favorite photo today...it really shows Luiza and I living life. Obviously it is not the best picture, the lighting is off, the composition is non-existant, but I love it regardless. It was taken at the cottage while Luiza and I were playing hide and go seek around the cars. I jumped out and scared the living daylights out of her, and this is the picture that my dad captured. Good times, livin' life.





In other news, CONGRATULATIONS Tammy on being the closest in guessing how much cardstock I have. I was telling the girls last night at scrapbooking that I was a little offended with some of their guesses. Marcie (love ya lots!) guessed 72 different shades of cardstock, I mean please. Then Rebecca (notice the name) insulted me again with a guess of 97. 97????? Please Luiza has 97 shades of cardstock in her stash. Then there was Christy. I really thought that if anyone was going to get it it was going to be her. She's knows I'm sick...I mean addicted,... yeah addited. But even she under estimated the sickness...I mean addiction. But Tammy, Dear Sweet Tammy, she dug down and really thought about it, and let me tell you she was close. Her guess...150. However friends, even that is not correct. Now before I admit how many different shades of cardstock I have in my "collection" let me just REMIND everyone, that cardstock is the backbone, the skeletal system of scrapbooking, if you will. (Is anyone buying this crap?????? Didn't think so) Ok, so I have 171 different shades of cardstock. THere I said it. Actually it was 168, until I realized I had 3 unopened packages of BEAUTIFUL, unused Stampin' Up In Color cardstock sitting neatly in my travel bag, just beggin" to be opened. So Tammy, thank you. Thank you for not insulting me with a number like 72 or 97, but for digging deep and choosing 150. You will be handsomly rewarded, and a gift basket full of fun, new scrapbooking supplies, including cardstock, will be dropped off at your door!!!! Congratulations again. I was thinking about the next question, and thought maybe Iwould have you guess how much patterened paper I have, but let's not go there. Keep checking back often as I will be randomly posting questions and contests.





Well I'm off to have a picnic on the family room floor and movie night with my Weezer Hope you all have a great weekend. Talk to you tomorrow.


Blessings!

Ok, collecting 170+ shades of cardstock isn't that bad, but I do have to wonder and question your sanity for counting it....

OK, so I'm impressed on how you caught us up from Wednesday to Saturday with your blog! I was just left hanging there whenever I checked back, and . . . . .nothing. Now I feel all warm and fuzzy inside again! By the way, you're sick! I don't even have a 1/5 of the amount of cardstock that you have. See ya Tuesday, probably. Love the picture, by the way. . .

FYI: you may want to dbl. check who really guessed 150. I think you maybe made a mix up. It Looks like Tammy did offend you with a guess of 84 and this Beebatube person guessed the 150!

It's easy to count it when 2/3 of it is neatly organized in paper slots.
