As always, thank you from the bottom of my scrappy lil' heart for this awesome template.

I'm very impressed with your canning abilities, too - it frightens. My mom used to can using a pressure cooker and I'm afraid if I use one it'll explode. I know, gotta get past that. But, we don't have a garden this year, so I'm not going to sweat it.

Thank you Andrea, your blog is one of my favorite stops!!

Andrea I have gotten more scrapping done since I've found your blog than I have it a while! Thanks so much. :-)

Tink said...

Wow, it has been years since I've done any canning. Times I really enjoyed it; others I hated it. But the end result was great. Thanks for the template.

WOW, thanks for the darling templates. Love the tear effect and the text effect. I went right over to your store and purchased your text pack. So glad to see you branching out in your designs. The florals are just fabulousl The good thing about receiving your templates is that I can now use them in the spiritual challenge, that I am determined to do, each month. Yeah!!!

It was a stimulating warmness felt when I realized that I had completed both of the challenges. That is the first time in over a year and a half that I was able to do a layout. I just had such a loving and wonderful experience. I just left GDS getting your goody samples so that I am prepared for September's Challenges. Leavin LUV! while receiving Inspiration and Encouragement in Return!!

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.
  • You know you have to do some serious laundry when you actually consider wearing your 11 year old daughter's Hannah Montana shirt.
  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.

  • The key to my treadmill is missing again...can I just purchase a bulk package of them???
  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.

  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
