So today I worked on a few things. I worked on a tutorial for making flowers, which I'll be posting this week in one of the myspace groups I'm in, a couple more of the challenges for Tally! Have I ever mentioned I love Tallyscrapper.com!
Here's the challenges I did today.
Art Work: Use a piece of "artwork" whether it's a child's, yours, doodling you did, or maybe an old school piece of artwork you did into your scrap layout. Try to make it the focus or background of the page.
With no kiddo around I decided to
Ask Mom for help!
She loves when she can "regress."

She even colored with her left hand to make it more childlike, lol! I love her she's silly! And a bit Crazy! Thank goodness I have such a cool mom!
Secret :Your challenge is to scrap a secret that you will want your children, a family member or a friend to know but that you don't want to just come out and tell them.
* Scrap it on black cardstock - YEP
* Use white letters for your title - YEP
* Tell the secret in your own handwriting - YEP
I wasn't sure I wanted to do this challenge. But this evening I turned around to find my husband's uniform on the floor waiting to be put in the wash and it got me thinking. I wanted this super simple, since really it's all about how the uniform effects me.
Most wives of law enforcement and military feel the same way I do. Scared, worried. So it's not so secret how I feel. But I'm not one to come right out and say it. Until now. Even this isn't so out right.
My husband is part of a very important government agency, the US Border Patrol. In 2007 Dh started his new career after serving 8 years in the US Army Military Police. I was worried and scared then too, but it seems even more so now.
I worry if he's okay just getting to work. It's an hour commute for him. I worry about what he'll encounter through out the day. Will he catch a drug load? Will it be an easy process? Will the illegals be cooperative? Will there be a scuffle? Is he safe? Will he be okay driving home after such a long day?
Yes there are great benfits for us as a family, but can we overcome all those crazy tasks? He's a smart man and good at his job, but I worry just the same. I pray everday that I'll have my husband safely come home after each shift.
