I'm old and I have an attitude!!!

I don't know about your weather, but the weather here was gorgeous today! It was 60+ degrees and sunny! I love it! I was able to get one LO done today..... and be ready.... it is actually a LO of myself!! yep!! I know I never scrap pictures of just me, but the papers I was using were perfect for my 40th birthday!! Yikes! I am getting old!!  heehee!!

This LO is for the Imaginisce blog November Sketch challenge.  I only used 3 photos... I figured that was plenty!! And (my favorite feature) I framed the middle photo! I took paper that had the stripes and squigglies on it and cut it in strips, folded and cut at the exact angles to create the frame around the photo! Gotta love it!!  :)  I used almost all imaginisce products on this one: Birthday Bash line, irock, and itop tools as well as some rub-ons, stickers and stamp! I also used Bazzill cardstock and the kraft paper was from my stash! I added a little of my own doodling and it was done!!

Apparently I am full of attitude these days because I received TWO of these awards this week!! I love it!! My entire family will confirm that some days, I do have a bit of an attitude!! But that's okay because I think a little attitude makes a person fun!! (That's my story and I am sticking to it!)

The first award is from my good blog buddy... Abusybee!!  Thanks Abusybee!!

 Here are the rules for receiving this award....

All I have to do is tell you 3 things that make me different and nominate 5 blogs. So here I go...

1. I am a germ freak! I can't take it when my kids reach their dirty little hands into a bag of chips! Yuck!!
2. I learned how to stain furniture last week! Yah... I know... I couldn't believe it either!! I stained our built in entertainment cabinet in our great room... and it looks great!! Who knew?!!
3. I love to shop! I know... not a big surprise there!! lol!!

I would like to pass this award on to....
1. Diana

I also received the My Blog Has Attitude Blog Award from my dear friend Kim! Thanks Girl! It was so sweet of you to pass this on to me!

This award comes with a fabulous $5 gift certificate from The Digi's with Attitude Store. Here are the directions for this award....

In order to qualify for the $5.00 Digi’s With Attitude! Gift Certificate you must state 3 things that makes you different from everyone else and you must nominate 5 blogs. Lastly, you must display the Blog Award Badge (above) in your sidebar and link it back to the Digi’s With Attitude! Challenge Blog.  

Since the rules were pretty much the same for both awards (List 3 things about yourself and nominate 5 people) I am just going to do it once! (Besides, I would feel bad telling 5 people they get a chance to win a $5 certificate and not offer it to the other 5! I am kind of silly that way!!) I hope you are okay with that! So... all the lovely ladies who I gave the first award to, you also get the second one!! I know I am such a cheater!! Gotta love me anyway!! lol!!  
And before I go, I want to remind you that we have a new sketch challenge going on at Frosted Designs! You can win an amazing prize that our very own Debbie put together!! Hope on over to see all the details!! We would love to have you play along!!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting today!

I think attitude is key to everything in life -- it adds the shading to how you perceive the events happening to you and the memory that lasts for years down the line.

Happy Birthday!
