Catching UP Accountability..ME & BFF...and some rambling..

Catching up on my personal challenge of a scrapbook page a day....and THANKS to SANDY, A Colourful World for pointing out...I am late!...lol.....I have come to the conclusion that it is MUCH easier to create a few pages at a time...since EVERYTHING ( & I mean EVERYTHING) is already out and a mess(I AM a messy scrapper/crafter/creator...I cannot help myself!)...Anyhoo..this double page spread of me & my BFF, Laura, The Stampin'Soldier gets me caught up....for now!....
These pics are from CKC in Nashville at Opryland Hotel ,Spring 2006.....We took 9 classes...did ALOT of shopping...and had a BLAST! Its so funny...although we are decades apart in age ( Laura is the age of my youngest child!...and I am older than her MOM!)....we have so much in common....People ALWAYS ask..."Are you Mother & Daughter???"...and we both grimace, and say ( smiling thru our teeth)..."No, we are Bestest Friends!!".....We met at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook isle( where else??) 3 years ago...and just CLICKED!.....We both have different styles...but, then again very similar...does that make sense?....ANYHOO..( rambling )....We JUST "GET" each other!
I am actually coming out of my" fear of journaling box"..and trying to do more on the page..instead of my secret tag spots. The picture on the right side of this page was when Laura Re-Up'd......Seriously...I dont know what that stands for, except she signed back up with the US Army for ANOTHER 4 years of service to our country.....she is MY Hero!!....I always get a kick out of all the "letters" the military uses...ya know like ABC....WXYZ....oh, & my fave...TCBY (oh, sorry...thats yummy frozen yogurt!...lol)
So....all caught up here....for now......The past few days have been emotional & draining for me....some personal stuff....but through the helping hands of the good Lord above and perserverence, it will all be good.
I am so blessed with my friends...both locally...and "cyberly"....My sweet friend Dawn, All Pink Girl, sent me some VERY FUN stamped images to "play" with ( Thanks, Dawnie!)along with some touching and uplifting emails....so, I hope to get some cards made up in the next couple of days!...hmmm...AFTER I clean up, I guess!( did I say I am messy??)
So.....thats my post....& my rambling.....please leave a comment...and come back & visit soon!...I am working on some BLOG CANDY...Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee sure to stay tuned!!!
Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!
Creative blessings,
Debbie

I love your blog- found it through your etsy store. Neat picture of you and your friend. I am an Air Force Vet. I try to keep up with what's happening in military.

L-O-V-E the paper with the dots! Great two-pager. And glad to finally get to see Laura. I saw a pic of my friend Mimi once in her uniform - said it was a great "outfit" - still haven't heard the end of that one!
