I cased the blue floral one from Christine Adams and Lisa Stenz. The "dad" one I saw on the CTMH BB. Sorry, I don't remember the artist.
Sorry--I could have angled and cropped that one better.
Now I'm off to get ready for a crop I'm hosting tonight, insane person I am. I can't wait though. I need a little time to relax and enjoy the company of my fellow scrappers one more time before I move. Have a great weekend!

Mike really like Syesha and was sad to see her go last night. Not a big fan of David Archuleta. He has a good voice, but not much stage presence (maybe because I'm not a pre-teen girl). I can't see him finding a niche in the radio market, but you never know. Win or lose, I know I'll be buying David Cook's album!
Anyway, if you live under a rock and haven't heard David, here's his three performances from this week. OK, I'll admit it, I just wanted them here so I could hear them whenever I want :)
I saw this award a few days ago on Kathi's site and I'm finally getting a chance to post it. First off, I'm honored that Kathi would be inspired by me, since I have to go to her blog everyday because seeing her artwork always makes my day a little better. She makes the most beautiful cards! According to Kathi, the art d pico (translated "art peak") began here. If your Spanish isn't any better than mine, I believe this link will translate the page for you.The rules, once you receive the award, appear on the original blog. The main requirement is to, in turn, award five people who inspire me.
Five people...hmmmm. There are way more than 5 people who inspire me--some of whom Kathi already named. Let's do this--just click on any of my links on the right under SBS4 or Blogs that Inspire Me (imagine that) and you will find gorgeous artwork--I guarantee it. My list of things I want to try or stamplift by far outweighs the number of hours in my day :) Thanks to all of you who blog and especially all of you who leave comments. It means so much!

And I just have to say thanks to everyone who is showing their support, especially those for whom this is really not good news. I keep going back and forth from excited to tears. I have so many wonderful friends here in the high desert and I hope you all know how much I am going to miss you. I have been brought to tears so many times by your emails and calls. Also, to all of my family who lives in CA--it its so hard to leave everyone. It really was a hard decision for us, but I know in my heart that it is the right one for our family. I told Mike that the one must have is an extra room for visitors--hopefully we'll have lots :)
Anyway, to all of those who have shown their support:

I've spent the morning on the computer and on the phone. The amount of money it's going to cost us to move is mind-blowing. I don't know how we're going to do it, but we'll figure it out. This is what I've wanted for so long, but it's happening so fast. We need to move, get this house ready to rent, figure things out with the management company--Yikes.
I sent off my application to teach last Tuesday, so hopefully I'll get called for an interview soon. That will mean a trip up there, but it will all be worth it once we get settled up there. I don't know how much I'll be on the next few weeks as I try to get everything ready. Life will be crazy, but I'll keep everyone updated. I look around and don't even know where to start.
In the meantime, don't forget about the blog candy here.

And here's one last parting shot. This is what happens when you let your kids dress themselves--LOL! Don't ask.
Also, Marjorie tagged me with this little game a couple days ago.
Here are the rules to play:
Link the person who tagged you
Mention the rules on your blog
Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them
Leave a comment on each of the tagged bloggers blogs letting them know they have been tagged.
1) I start every day with a cup of Chai Tea while I check my email. This is my me time before the kiddos are up and my day gets too hectic.
2) I can't scrapbook chronologically--I just scrap whatever I feel like scrapping at any given time. I later organize them in order. Of course this means I rarely finish album, but that's ok.
3) I always "save the best for last" when eating. I always save one bite of whatever is my
favorite on my plate to be my last bite. For example, the cheesiest nacho or the bite of cake with the most frosting. Look out anyone that tries to take that bite.
4) I can't not finish a book. Even if it's bad, I keep reading with the hope it will get better. It drives me nuts having an unfinished book around.
5) I am a homebody. Not matter how exciting the trip or how much fun we're having, there's always a part of me that wants to be back at home.
6) I have to sleep on the side of the bed furthest from the door. I've always been weird about doors--when I was little, I couldn't sleep if the closet door was open. Mike and I joke that we were definitely meant to be because he's always naturally slept nearest the door :)
Well there's a little more about me than you probably wanted to know. I'm feeling to lazy to tag anyone specific, so if you want to do this great, leave me a comment and let me know you played along.
