What I've been working on...

I've been working on Croppy's book! I have 6 pages done now. I need to scan the one so you can read the journaling.
I rather like how this page turned out.
The two I just finished are adorable I think. I just put them in the album though so I don't know how the pictures will come out.

I'm really excited to get Croppy on his journey. For those of you who don't know who or what Croppy is, he is a beanie baby that is now the mascot for Scrappintology!
He is going to travel the country and have his picture taken all over the US. My fellow Scrappintologists are going to complete pages in his album and send him along on his journey.

I still have quite a bit of photos to scrap. I hope to get him postal soon!

Here's one page:
Here's another page...quality of photo NOT SO GOOD. Sorry!

Some recent photos

(From the last 3 weeks)

Me, Croppy and the Dam! Sooo cute.

These were my cow friends...met them on our road trip through manure-filled CALIFORNIA!

This is Alan, me and Croppy the frog in Friant, CA. We were next to Millerton Dam. I set the camera on a ledge and I guess it was facing into the sun. This would have been a cute picture. I still like it though.

The recent additions to my frog collection! And CROPPY of course!

HAPPY 4th of JULY! Self portrait baby.

My results after messing with the fireworks setting on my camera!

Music or movies while SCRAPPIN?

DEFINITELY music! I pretty much always BLAST my music while in my scraproom. I like to listen to AOL Radio's Top Alternative, or XM Radio's Ethel. KROQ-y type of music!

For you So. CAL bloggers, check out KROQ.com, you can almost guarantee I'm rocking out to one of the most requested/most played songs.

Lately I've been loving:
Taking Back Sunday
Rise Against
Angels and Airwaves

and my fave song: BAD DAY!

Wow, very productive day today! Got lots accomplished with Close To My Heart! Check out my Close To My Heart site, I've updated things. Even added some artwork and changed "My Story". Worked a lot on building my customer base too.
I'm very excited!

TGIF & 2Peas Blog Challenge

Whew! What a week. 2 twelve-hour days in a row, and to top it all off I go and injure myself at work. I was doing the job of three people, and raced to get some filing done. I was working in these HUGE filing cabinets that each hold 200 files per drawer. Each one is full of papers, so I have to push them aside to get in the correct one to file, well I guess the strain was too much. SO I'm in pain. I don't know if the hernia is POPPED out or what, but the incision area feels really weird and hard to the touch. SO I'm going to the doctor Tuesday. My sergeant wanted to fill out an injury report and I told him to wait. I'm really hoping I didn't do something bad.

OH WELL, at least it's Friday. I'm going to work some OT tomorrow, but it's just boring data entry. I won't have to do anything but sit there, although sitting is what hurts most. MAYBE I SHOULD GET OFF THE COMPUTER!

Going to a stamp convention Sunday. I have lots of scrappin to do, and hopefully we can catch Pirates of the Caribbean! Hmmm Johnny Depp here I come.

Oh and for the 2Peas Challenge...I wouldn't call it my ALL-TIME favorite SUMMER movie, but it's definitely my favorite so far THIS summer: CLICK with Adam Sandler. IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY SEEN IT, GO NOW, RIGHT NOW! Even before Pirates!!! I really really enjoyed this movie.
