Fun Game for Scrapbook Gals... with a RAK!

Okay ladies! Time for a game!

This is a simple play-on-words game where I give you the clue and you have to name the manufacturer. For example, a clue may be "chilly amphibian", and the answer would be Arctic Frog.

Anyone who sends me an email with ALL of the correct answers will be entered in a drawing for a RAK. Only ONE email per person, so make sure you've got them correct. When you get them figured out, send me an email with your answers at upordown777@yahoo.com. I will reply if you have them correct and let you know that you are entered into the drawing. Thanks to the gals at Color Me Daisy for letting me steal this from their recent crop.

DEADLINE is SUNDAY, Sept. 28th, at 8 PM EST.


1. spiffy bloomers
2. flower consonant
3. starry insect

Here's a few new pages. Nothing has gotten done this week... I've had scrappers block all week (think writers block) and nothing is coming together. I might need to take a few days off and stay away from scrapping to see if I can break through the block.

Anyway, here's what I did last week:

Thanks for coming by!

Time for a family update!

So, "they" tell me it's time to update again. Whoever "they" are! Slave drivers, all of "them!" LOL.
Here's what I've been up to the last few days:

  • Don and I celebrated our anniversary last night! We were married 4 years on the 6th, but we just had our anniversary date last night. We went to our favorite restaurant and to Borders/Starbucks with NO KIDS! It was great.

  • I had two more layouts accepted for publication in Scrap N' Art!

  • Elijah has taken to crayons lately. He colors pictures that blow me away for his age!

  • Milena is getting ever closer to being potty trained... almost there!

  • We went to the local apple orchard (Dispennett's Orchard- http://www.cabapple.org/) about 10 days ago. It was tons of fun. Here are some pics from that time:
