What do you do for a friend....

who has a troubled soul???? Well you can make sure she knows that you love her, and that you support her in ANY decision that she has to make. You are her shoulder to cry on and her crutch to lean on. You are her bandage when she bleeds, and her ear when she needs to vent. You are her words of "you can get thru anything" when she needs to hear it the most. You feel her pain when she hurts, and try to make it better if you can...

ULTIMATELY, as she knows you so well..... even though you can't make her problem go away, you take the weight off her shoulders for five minutes and you post this knowing it'll make her LAUGH HER ARSE OFF!!!


You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.

You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it.

You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheels.

You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit it!)

You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.

You had either a 'bowl cut' or 'pixie', not to mention the 'Dorothy Hamill'.
People sometimes thought you were a boy.

You had rubber boots for rainy days and Moon boots for snowy days.

YEAH! You owned a 'Slip-n-Slide', on which you injured yourself on a sprinkler head more than once.

You owned 'Klick-Klacks' and smacked yourself in the face more than once!

Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.

You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.

You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The swing set tipped over at least once.

You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).

PONG! ('video tennis' ) was the most remarkable futuristic game you've ever heard of !

Your hairstyle was described as having 'wings' or 'feathers' and you kept it 'pretty' with the comb you kept in your back pocket. When you walked, the 'wings' flapped up and down, looked like you were gonna 'take off'

You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie.

You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic. With the thermos inside some were glass inside and broke the first time you dropped them.

You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.

YOU had Star Wars action figures, too!

It was a big event in your household each year when the 'Wizard of Oz' would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: 'Who will I marry. Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or David Cassidy?

You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack record album.

You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker.

You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books. (Are you there God, It's Me, Margaret.)

You thought Olivia Newton John's song 'Physical' was about aerobics. (?? its not??)

You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or rain bow designs.

You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - which was the first 'real' perfume you ever owned.

You glopped your lips in Strawberry Roll-on lip-gloss till it almost dripped off.

HUGS Girl.... I'll love you forever!!!!!!!!

LO Share

Well I did get some scrapping done last night! I was up until 0430 last night (eeerrr morning) having a grand ole ball, watching some old movies and scrappin away... doncha love nights like that?? LOL

So here is the stuff I did... and that freakin LO that I have been just staring at for weeks, finally got finished!!

Here it is... I am very pleased with it... and it is primarily from my Bad Girl Oct kit.

This Is True Beauty

This LO below was a scraplift from a girl over at Bad Girls named Verro. I can't seem to save her original image here, but I can link to it. So here is the original (quite breataking I think), and my interpretation is this... I went with the general design of this LO.

It Took Time

I had a lot of fun with this one... When I saw these die cuts from BG mellow line I knew I wanted to scrap them and had this general idea. I had a hard time just walking away, seeing that whole large area of white space. But I outlined the LO with black pen, elongated the row of buttons and am now pleased with it...!

Your Big Little World

Finally, I did the Jenni Bowlin January Project kit. It's gorgeous. So here is the front page on the calendar, followed by a sample of the calendar cards. The idea is to place your fave pic from that month on the opposite side. Once 2008 is over, it goes from a functional calendar to a mini album.. I LOVE THAT! LOL


That's it for now... hoping to get more pages done today and throughout the week... Thank for stopping by!
