Some thoughts and some quirks...

Here are my thoughts for today:

1.) After 30 acne should just NOT be an issue a woman has to deal with.

2.) Cake is a food group and should be eaten for breakfast daily!

And I've been tagged 3 times for the same tag! So here are my answers:

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.

I was tagged by Colleen, Lynn, and Dana.

2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).
1. I can read upside down and backwards very well. Lots of practice from working with my students.
2. I think boogers are way grosser than poo. Seriously yucky. I can wipe a bottom just fine (well, Owen's) but noses I get all gaggy!
3. I am left handed but I golf, knit, crochet, and cut with my right hand. I can also play pool with either.
4. I am 5" tall but wear a size 8 1/2 shoe. I don't fall down much!
5. I am a bit of a germphobe. The other day they had this segment on the Today show about the 12 places where germs are most prevalent. So I went on a cleaning binge. I also bought a small water bottle yesterday at Target so I could have a bleach/water solution to disinfect stuff like door knobs and things.
6. I count stuff. Just random things. Like walking up the steps or when I'm sort things. I just find myself counting.
7. I listen to public radio everyday. Yes, everyday.

3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

Okay. Well, several of the people I wanted to pick have already been tagged! So, I'm going to pick them anyway and call it good.
Lynn (already tagged so she's off the hook)
Dana (ditto above)
Noelia (ditto above)

4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. I've done this. I'm sure they will be thrilled! It's like internet chainmail.

And today Maureen posed this question: When your scrapping/card making do you ever look at your surrounding for ideas?
I guess it depends on what she means by surroundings. Currently my favorite place to get ideas is from magazine ads. I adapt the layout design to my idea for the project I'm working on and take it from there. Ads tend to have a pretty simple design to them and I prefer that in my work. Then I add a few embellishments and viola!

Here's a layout I finished yesterday for a ScrapInStyle challenge. No magazine ad lifts though. Just from my brain! It's a 6x12 layout so I had to scan and stitch. Hence the little overlap at the top. I need to practice a bit with my scan and stitch!

I so so so agree with you. After 30, I should not have to deal with "zits." I always get one at that "special" time of the month.

Linda said...

I agree about acne over 30, I feel like I am 12 again. And I lol at your comment about internet chain mail, too funny.

Lizz said...

Adorable LO! (And sorry about the zit thing! LOL)

Colleen said...

Too funny that you got tagged three times! Love your list and your thoughts for the day - AGREE! Your layout is darling!

Aimeslee said...

Love your layout! Really not thrilled about the tag, but I did it anyway. I'm looking for victims right now.....(eyeroll)


Noelia said...

Cool tag! I still get zits when it's that time of the month..kwim?
Great page!

Yellow Fence said...

Thanks for the tag... love the layout!

Lynn said...

I have to agree with everyone else. I think we've been through enough and to have to put up with pms and acne after 30 is not nice!

Ok... I have to also agree that I think cake should be a food group and served for breakfast for that matter I think ds Joseph would agree.

The lo with Owen is so adorable. I love it! I don't know anything about scanning and stitching so you are way ahead of me!
