Lots to blog about

I had a rough start to my week when we had to put one of our cats down. We had the cats for 3 years before we had Ian so they were our kids before we had kids so it was really hard (and still is) for both of us. Then Joe went into the field for 2 nights and the other cat brought a mouse onto my bed while I was up with Emma the 2nd night. It ended up hiding in my treadmill so I spent the rest of the night downstairs in the spare bed. Luckily the rest of the week has been rather uneventful.

This afternoon (in about an hour) I am taking pictures of Roberta's kids before her brother's wedding this evening. They are both in the wedding party so it should be fun taking pics of them all dressed up. Hopefully I will be able to post a couple tonight or tomorrow.

I was on SCS this morning and was checking out the challenges and the limited supplies challange for this weekend is to do a OSW (one sheet wonder) with a 12 x 12 sheet of patterened paper. Normally a OSW is done by stamping an entire sheet of cardstock and then cutting it to use on different cards or projects. This one you have to use the entire sheet and it has to be on at least 2 cards and 2 non- card projects. You are only allowed to use 2 stamp sets and 1 verse set. I think that is all of the rules. I will try to check later to make sure I have it right.

So that is going to be my challenge to you and to myself. This weekend pull out a sheet of patterened paper and use it to create as many cards and 3-D items as you can. If you have a digital camera you can take a picture of your projects and I can post them here if you want. I would love to see what everyone comes up with. If you don't read this until after the weekend and still want to participate go for it.

Have a great long weekend.

Omgosh, I would have had a fit if my kitty brought a mouse on my bed-LOL. So sorry to hear about your other cat, we get so attached to our animals and is so hard when we lose on of them! I'll be checking later to see if you complete the SCS challenge.

You've got me thinking about the challenge. I may not get to this for a day or two but have decided I will pull out a sheet of the new Christmas paper and take up your challenge! Sounds like fun!!!

The pictures of the "Wedding Party" children are great. Again...I think photography is a calling...Also very sorry about your cat. I had to put our family pet (also a cat) down a couple of years ago..Lucky was a member of our family for over 18 years and it was very difficult to do, but I was glad I could help him end his suffering. We all cried for days!!

I am so sorry to hear about your cat! I have two dogs and they are my babies. I can only imagine how difficult it must be for you and Joe.
