tuesday tidbits

what a great day....lots accomplished at work & at home.  i even had time for a two mile run!!!!!  man did that ever feel good.  

i've received quite a few questions in regards to the scrapbooking challenge that i posted last night.  i'm excited to hear that it has many of you thinking outside your creative boxes.  my goal was not to make you stress out (not that any of you are) but rather encourage you to look at your supplies and process a little differently.  when i first took this challenge i thought, "there is NO WAY that i am going to be able to use stickers...let alone 8", but i did, and now i have started using stickers a lot more in the layouts that i am doing....which is good because i still love COLLECTING those stickers that i was too afraid to use. 

 well i hope that this has helped those of you that are undecided as to whether or not you want to accept the challenge.....go for it!!

Scrapbookers Challenge #1

ok ladies.......are you ready?  on your mark.....get set......go!!!!

here is the first scrapbooker's challenge of 2009!!!!  yes, i realize it is the end of march....don't judge me...giggle...giggle...

you are free to use this challenge for both card making or a scrapbooking layout...

1. you must use at least 8 different kinds of pattern paper 
2. 8 stickers of some kind (not counting sticker letters)
3. at least 1 stamped image

now i know many of you are probably reading these requirements and thinking "there is NO WAY that i am going to be able to create a card or layout with all that stuff, but trust me....you can!  i did.

if you are interested in participating in this challenge (and really who wouldn't be) please leave a message in the small "comment" section below letting me know (i want to make sure that i have enough goodies for everyone).  all you have to do is either bring the finished project OR complete it by 10 pm, friday night at scrapbooking, and i will have a small gift for those of you that participate.  

for your viewing pleasure i have included the layout that i did using the guidelines of the challenge.

for all of you that are willing to stretch your creativity....good luck and have FUN!

Good Feelin' Weekend!!!

Man what a great weekend.  Lots accomplished....cleaned the house, made two soups (Beef Stew and Loaded Baked Potato), attended an auction, went on a date with a HOT cop!!!!, completed 3 scrapbooking projects, watched a movie that I have wanted to see for a long time, read 3 chapters of my book, took an amazing bath, watched Diamond Castle with Luiza for the 1,000,000th time (you think I'm joking???), had a great time with my nieces & daughter during our sleepover reading books and doing art projects (sorry for the marker on the shirts Leslie),  and did ALL the laundry!!!!!!  Phew!!!!!

Man just typing all that made to tired......I'm getting ready to go have the second most amazing bath of the weekend, and then I think I am going to head to the ole scrapbooking room and have a little fun.  

Check back this week as I'm going to post a fun scrapbooking challenge.  If you participate in this challenge and bring the finished project to scapbooking on Friday night, I will have a fun little prize for you.  Just let me know ahead of time, so that I can make sure that I have enough prizes. 

Here's the picture for today......all the girls enjoying the great outdoors!!!!!!!

Did Ya Miss Me?????

I'm back!!!!!!  After a year and a half hiatus, I am back to my blogging ways.  I've missed you all so much.  I've been on Facebook, but that is way to difficult and cluttered.  I prefer my single posts that happen on a blog much better to constant updates on Facebook----no offense to the people who LOVE Facebook, it's just not for me.

So anyway, back to my life as a blogger.  My goal, as it was in the beginning, to keep this blog as a way to update family and friends with the little things that are happening here in the Yerke household.  Between Luiza, Quinn, scrapbooking and work, things are always happening.

I won't overstay my welcome, so I will end this post with a cute picture of Weezer....

Take Care. It's good to be back.
