Internet Findings - This one is for you Steph! LOL

I know that my girl Steph loves these posts and since it's been so long since I have done one, I am dedicating this one to her! LOVE YOU BABE!

Before I begin, it's not one of the happiest days in the Tops residence. Cody is as I type flying home to Halifax... everyone is a little heartbroken! I am glad my nieces are still here for the week to soften to blow for my little girls, but I have a hubby who's pretty down and out right now. If you know my John, you know he doesn't get down and out all that much! I imagine it'll be somewhat of a somber day, but we'll survive. I'll post some funnies in some future posts to highlight some of the happy's we did have together! LOL

So I haven't been scrapping but I have been knitting up a storm! I made this shawl for me to wear in the fall .... it was so much fun to make! The yarn was so soft and colourful! Here are a couple of pics of it!

Some up close look at the stitching!

Found this awesome recipe for an avocado salad! YUMMILICIOUS!

Bad Girls August Kit has been revealed! The name is "Le Rue de Paris"
and here are the pics!

My fave is the bird cage .. oh and the colours of the entire kit and the shabbiness! I can't wait to see the projects that are suggested with the kit! EEEEEKKKKK!

I have decided to scrap my arse off for the month of August ... and get my money's worth of the Lifetime Moments Summer Scrapfest ... LOL I have done horribly this summer so far, and I always look forward to these challenges! So this month I am aiming for 15 LO's! Chant with me .. YOU CAN DO IT! LMAO

I've decided that Laurie has spent enough time in Winnipeg and I need her to come home! MAN I MISS MY GIRL! LOL I am also sending her HUGE CYBER HUGS cuz I am really happy that she had some great news to share! MMMMMMMWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAA Babe!

August Page Maps can be found here!

I came across this site called BookDaily. You get to read the first chapter of new releases, classics and everyday books. Then you can decide whether you would be interested in reading it. I have added so many books to my library request list because of this site. They do give you the option to buy the book, but seeing as I live in cheapville errrr smartville (LOL) now, I don't buy them anymore! I put my big girl panties on and learn patience and waiting for the availability from the library! LOL

So this past week has been a big one in the scrapping world! CHA Summer 09 in Orlando Florida! I have some stuff preordered already, and I thought I'd post some of the yummy's that have just been released!
