Challenge Time! 10 of your favorite things....

Hi all. My name is Monica AKA Mo, and I too and am new to the team. First of all I want to say.. wow. Everyone involved here is uber-talented and I am flattered to be in ya'lls company! I am a wife and mother to 2 crazy, beautiful kids..Bella who is seven and Cadyn, two..almost three. I do quite a few things in my life besides manage households...I work part-time at Scrapaganza with Penny, I am a part-time nurse at an urgent care, and am an assistant wedding photographer. (that made me tired...whew..) My style is what i call garbage style. Its not uncommon for me to leave a LO on my table for days at a time, and i will constantlly walk by it and add or change something. I am messy, and I suppose collage-like? Much like my personlaity..My pages and self.. we are all over the map... no rules, no boundry.. just free flow ...Mo-love..
So, this month I chose to highlight 10 of our most favorite things... for the moment. How fun, you can take it any way you want... Check out what the girls did... (can I say, what a fab group of diverse and mixed talents are on this team...) just. WOW.

Ten of my favorite things, 2009 ed.

My family--husband, children, brothers, sister, parents, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews...Even when times are tough, I LOVE my family! my friends--neighbors, coworkers, highschool, college and scrapping buds...every one has a place in my heart, I LOVE my friends! my fun hobbies-- scrapbooking, card-making, cropping, cooking, teaching, talking, walking, laughing and drinking coffee, it will be great to retire and fill my days with these activities, I LOVE my fun hobbies! I LOVE FRIDAYS--need I say more???



My top 10 fav. things in the life of raising our 2 boys
Supplies: Kraft cardstock, Sassafras paper, October Afternoon rub-ons & label stickers, My Little Yellow Bicycle clear word sticker, Thickers by American Crafts, Making Memories...DoodleBug...and Sassafras letter stickers, Autumn Leaves stamp, Stampin' Up! ink, American Crafts precision pen, Maya Road chipboard {boy traced}, Maya Mist, and Xyron adhesive.
1} Even though @ this age you guys bicker & pick at each other, you still look out for one another - I hope that never changes!
2} You're both still willing to give hugs & hold my hand in public - I know 4 & 6 will to soon be 14 & 16. ...Cherish each day...
3} I love that you guys are perfectly content with playing in your sandbox for hours @ a time! Your fav. place!
4} You both keep me on my toes and make me laugh everyday! You love to see how often you can scare me!
5} Boys are so low maintenance when it comes to getting ready. No bows or curls, just the occasional mohawk!
6} It's so much fun when we get to go for a quick 4-wheeler ride around the c.r.p. to check the deer camera or just watch you guys create @ my craft table.
7} You boys are great at entertaining yourselves...I very rarely here "I'm bored" as long as you're outdoors.
8} Your wordrobe is simple...a pair of blue jeans & a tshirt or tanktop...but always your cowboy boots! We go through lots of those!
9} You're both getting better @ stopping & posing for a picture for mommy. Chase is finally starting to grow out of the "run from the camera" stage.
10} And, my fav. thing about raising you boys is knowing how blessed we are.


Things that make me happy:
1) All time favs - Family
2) Hugs & cuddles!!
3) All time favourite clothing brand - DorothyPerkins
4) Love 'em bags!! - COACH
5) Starbucks - What do you know? I {HEART} their i) Cafe Mocha ii) Iced Signature Chocolate

Hi I'm new around here. I just discovered your great blog (love the concept!) and I did a layout for the challenge.

Heather Landry said...

Hey girls,

I have a question. I won a while back on this post, but but never received word as to whether or not I was supposed to get a RAK for winning.

Can anyone help? I'd just like to know either way. Thanks! Heather
