Ohhhh Deana, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your projects!!!!! And I LOVE that kit!!! It's such a pity that the shipping is always so expensive for us here in Europe....
I think it's GREAT you're doing a Give Away!!! Think I'm going to send you a joke every day, because I want to win!!!!!!!! Lol!
Here's no. 1:
The teenage granddaughter comes downstairs for her date with this see-through blouse on and no bra. Her grandmother just pitches a fit, telling her not to dare go out like that! The teenager tells her "Loosen up Grams. These are modern times. You gotta let your rosebuds show!" and out she goes.
The next day the teenager comes downstairs, and the grandmother is sitting there with no top on. The teenager wants to die. She explains to her grandmother that she has friends coming over and that it is just not appropriate...
The grandmother says, "Loosen up, Sweetie. If you can show off your rosebuds, then I can display my hanging baskets."
Did I see a smile?????

You are an amazing scrapper - you create such totally cool layouts and you are totally up to date - and you can really work the kits!!!!!! I can't top Jenneke's joke but since you and Bob like college football, here's a funny story about Dan, Brian, and me. One Saturday many years ago we were driving in Jacksonville, and it was the day of the Florida-Georgia game which is always played in Jax. It was a stunning day and we saw a little plane flying around and it started to emit smoke letters D - A -W and Dan said what in the world can he be spelling??? Brian was so disgusted - Dawgs! So now we always tease Dan that he can't spell - and especially when GA games are on tv. Have a great Thanksgiving!


You blow me away with your amazing layouts, these are so elegant and whimsical at the same time. My favorites are the first two, oh my goodness, the creative mind that is within you!


What great projects!!! My personal faves are Bryn's back to school page and your I Love Rainbows page! Hooray for Rainbows and clouds :)

Love your layouts! So pretty! The colors are amazing and those rainbows. Bryn looks so cute in her school picture. The kit is beautiful. Something funny, hmmm..... The scene in 'ELF' where he answers the phone 'Buddy the Elf whats your favorite color!' Makes me laugh every time. " )

It's time for another joke:
A father-to-be gets into a panic when his wife suddenly goes into labor. He calls up the local hospital and appeals for immediate help: “Er...this is an emergency…we need an ambulance right away...the contractions keep coming every two minutes!”

“Is this her first child?” enquires the nurse.

“No, it’s her husband, you idiot!”



ok, so yes, i totally googled to find something silly LOL!!! which is silly in itself being that i have 2 toddlers AND a teenager that do totally silly things everyday *but* THIS is GOOD!!!! --->
