Happy Easter!

Just a quick drive-by posting today - we were away at my Dad's since Thursday evening and I need to get some things unpacked before heading back to work tomorrow morning.

First up, for the Sweet Shoppe FOBTY - a "Which Easter Candy are You?" quiz. Here are my results:

You Are a Chocolate Bunny

A traditionalist, you secretly want to dress up like a bunny. And not just on Easter.

LOL ok..... next up is a layout I did this afternoon. I don't think I ever put together a layout this quick. I only worked on it for about 2 hours. No matter how simple or cluttered I try to make my layouts, they usually take about 4 hours because things have to be "just so"....

I took this photo of my Dad yesterday 4-11-09. It really makes me sad. He's doing well since his surgery two months ago but I am still reminded that he's not getting any younger. He was THRILLED when we decided to go spend Easter with him at his house. We usually have him here for dinner. I didn't have cell phone service there nor did I have any computer or internet. It was fun but it's always nice to come home.

Credits are here - almost everything on this page is by Penny Springmann.

That's about it for me. Hope your Easter was a great one - filled with family and love.

*insert a catchy title here*

Hey, Happy Thursday to are ya?

Last Saturday, we moved my Dad home to his own home. I was so excited for him but nervous all the same. I worry about him being ok living on his own again after the valve replacement surgery, esp. since he's over an hour away but I know he'd never be happy living here with us permanently. It was kinda fun having him here and the evenings just aren't the same without him here. I worry that he'll not take his medications or worse, that he won't take them correctly. But for his happiness, he has to give it a try.

I've been busy creating things for The Daily Scrapper, the Digichick and Hybridchick and also for Penny Springmann. Here are a few things that I've created in the last week or so:

For Penny Springmann - using her newest kit Hard Times and a bunch of her overlays and alphabets from other kits:

Next up, is just something I literally threw together in like an hour. Really, an hour. It was so easy to do and turned out cute if I do say so myself!! LOL

Using Pamela Donnis' Vegetable Soup element kit:

And lastly for tonight, for the Sweet Shoppe FOBTY (From our blog to yours), we are to blog about 5 TV shows that we have seen EVERY episode of. Mine would be (in no particular order):

1. House
2. Still Standing
3. Reba
4. Who's the Boss (with the yummy Tony Danza who can clean my house anytime! LOL)
5. CSI

I could name a whole lot more like Little House on the Prairie, Full House and Coach. LOL

Well, that's it for now. Got to go work on some work stuff I brought home. *ack* but I need somewhere quiet to work on it and my office just won't work. See you later!!
