Sunday Fun

Feels like I blinked and the weekend was half over.  There has been a whirlwind of activity at our place since Friday afternoon.  Fun stuff.

Before I get into all that though I want to share with you TWO fabulous opportunities that Lily Bee Design is hosting.  First is this.  That's right they are having a DT call.  I don't know the last time they did that, they have been known to simply invite designers on.  Can you imagine getting that email?  I am crossing my fingers that I do get a similar email as I am going to submit an appy to them.  You've heard it from me before...they are one of my favorite manufacturers to work with, and I only say that about two, out of the bunch.  I love how they stay current in the market, and continually offer quality product for us to work with.  The journal cards, stickers, those fabulous tiny alphas, and the eye catching designs of their papers are always a must on my list of scrappy purchases.  I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to work with their current team, (some of them my scrappy friends on the web).  I just know I could rock their scrappy goodness. 

Second is this.  A chance to win an entire new release collection.  Check out these fabulous new lines.
Love these luxurious earthy tones

This one is my fave, check out that hexi paper
Planning to create a layout class with this one for my LSS
Now believe you me, as much as I want to share all this exciting news, part of me is wishing I'd just keep it to myself, so I wouldn't be diminishing my own chances of winning, or being selected for their team.  I however, can not keep great news like this to myself, so go on and share/like/tweet, and apply as your little heart desires.  I can live with that.

As for the rest of this weekend...
Théa and her good dance partner in crime, spent several hours at their first rehearsal for the upcoming American Girl movie, that is being filmed her in Winnipeg.  It's all been a serious roller coaster ride, as we were called Friday at 4pm, asking to bring her in for an audition, told at 5:20 that she was perfect for the part.  Back there on Saturday evening for this dance workshop/rehearsal.  Then told at 8pm, that there may be cuts on Sunday (today).  See what I mean?  Rollercoaster.  She's a little nervous.  This mamma, is a little more.  But most of all, I'm just so proud of her for going for it.  I have a lot to learn from this wonderful 10 year old of mine.

While she was there with Daddy.  The rest of us girls celebrated this guy's belated 4th birthday, with bowling, followed by ice cream at Dairy Queen.
Recognize him?  He's the little man I scrapped about here.
He is such a character.  We had a blast bowling (I think the rest of the bowling ally could tell too, hee hee).  In between every ball thrown he'd break out into a freestyle Hip Hop routine.  Needless to say we needed more than the 60 minutes we paid for to finish 10 frames.  My heart aches with love, and pride overflowing for this little guy.

Today at noon I will be planted in front of my tv.  Wearing this.

Cheering for these guys, and the rest of the team.
It's part II of the Labour Day Classic, and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are hungry for revenge.  It's gonna be pretty loud in here, feel free to come and cheer with me.

Whatever your plans are today, I hope you are happy, healthy, and spending it with the people you love most.

Thanks for popping by today!
