What a week, what a week! Long Post, grab coffee!

Omg! I tell you I have had the longest week ever! Everytime I felt I wanted to update my blog, I could feel the energy just drain from my body! I have so much I want to do in my head, but, when I think I have mustered up enough strength to do it, it fizzles out with the quickness. My body tells my head, "just lay down and go to sleep for awhile"!

Well anyway, I some very awesome news that I just have to share!! You know I have been posted my "bootleg" coloring, well I just wasn't too happy with it, but I understood you had to start somewhere. Soooo, I went to you tube, and various blogs looking for some instruction. Well, I stumbled upon the Sally Lynn's Blog and noticed she dates, dates for Copic Certification Classes! OMG! Well, I got a little discouraged, because I read that not everyone who applied would get in and that only, store owners, employees, CTMH or Stampin Up, etc..., even the freakin media, would be able to get before I. Well, after to speaking to Leslie, because it is being hosted in her home city, and at her local scrap booking store, I would give it a try. Well, I did not even get my hopes up high, but, it was a great feeling when I received that email saying my application had been accepted. So now, I wait, lol!! Plus on top of that, I get to take three great classes the day before that, with two of the bestest (yeah I said bestest, lol) friends I could ever ask for!! This time Tracey and I will travel down to Les, so she gets a break this time, lol!

Whew...okay, you may have noticed that I added a few banners on my side bar. Well it wasn't just for my health, you need to check them out seriously! Michelle of ThePixieCottage, Wendy of Digital Doodling & Karla of Karla Dudley Designs! These woman are so very friendly and sweet like you would not believe. When I first started blogging, I did not think it was possible to meet the people I have crossed paths with on here, because of earlier experiences, but I have met so many great people on here, with warm hearts and just plain funny as I don't know what!

So, our challenge blog has been doing extremely well, these past couple of months, I really encourage you, if you have not already to mosey on over there and check it out! You never know we may have a few surprises going on! Plus you can check out my lastest project, which is sooo not like me, but I actually did (2) 8.5 x 11 LO's! What is going on? So one will be posted here, the other well... you will just have to check it out over at Iftheshoefitsscrapit!

I know I have not coverd everything, is 1:17am EST and I have school in the morning! Night!

Wow, so much going on!

So first I want to start this post out, by saying hello Tim, Love you (my hubby) in case he decides to read this tonight. He commutes every weekend from Maryland to see us, because of his job, it's hard but we manage. I only see him weekends, holidays and any vacations we may have. We have been doing this for about a year, so far we have not fell apart yet. I try to scrap during the week, so all my time is with him on the weekend, but between work, tae kwon do, working out, and other odds and ends on the weekday it gets so hard, lol! But I manage. So I am too happy when I am able to get stuff done, that is not our challenge blog (iftheshoefitsscrapit) related!

I want to say congrats and ask if you can please stop by Essensevibez page and congratulate her on getting published!! She made a toilet paper album that is just too cute!! I am proud for her. Check out her other works of art as well, such as her journal albums, they are stunning!! I told her she need to sell them! Don't you think she should???
Make sure you stop by, check it out and leave her a comment.~

Next I would like for you to visit Leslie's page and look at this gorgeous card she made on National Card making Day, OMG, no words can describe, she does great work anyway, but I was so floored when I saw this card! Stop by check it and tell her what you think! You won't be disappointed, I promise. OH AND SHE HAS BLOG CANDY, SO BE SURE TO PLAY ALONG, YOU NEVER KNOW!!

Now on to my card that I made with an image so graciously provided by Miss Wendy over at Digital Dooling. It's called Christmas Belle, and she is just adorable! I still don't think I did her justice, because of my lack of markers, lol, but I think I didn't do too shabby. I know some of you out there are killers with the copics, so go easy on me! Make you drop by Wendy's blog as well (Digital Doodling) you won't be disappointed!

With that said, once again, I am late to bed, and I have wayyyyy early to rise, lol! Good night~ Hope you enjoyed my post tonight! Thank you all for the wonderful, kind and thoughtful comment that have been left, I certainly enjoy visiting your blogs as well!

I was finally able to get something done real quick, it has been a really busy day for me and the fam. I wish I could have had more time, lol! So I guess technically it's not National Card making Day anymore, huh? LOL. Oh well. Hope you all have a great night, I am off to bed!
