Saturday's are special

Ahhh...remember Saturday when you were a kid (depending on your era).  Running down the stairs at the crack of dawn to watch cartoons.  (Scooby Doo,  Fred Flinstone, The Loony Tunes Hour and Captain Caveman were some of the favorites).



Now my Saturdays are all business it seems, run one kid here and one run kid there.  I LOVE MY LIFE...
But sometimes...I miss running down the stairs in my favorite jammies turning on the t.v. and watching cartoons while eating Sugar Smacks. 

Here is to your Saturday and I hope you are having a Wonderful Day.

Love Blog Hop and Blog Candy!


Welcome to the Lovely Blog Hop brought to you by
If you get lost just click on the link above and it will give you all of the addresses.
There will also be a listing at the bottom of this post, so you will know where to go! :)

You should have got here from Liz

And you're next location will be Michelle

This blog  hop is to showcase someone that we love.  Mine just happens to my dear sweet husband, Billy.  He is the rock in my world and I would not be the person I am without him.


The  journaling is hard to read on the layout so here it is.

I love you With all my heart

What that means to me is I get to go to sleep with my best friend.
When I laugh with you, it is not the same as with anyone else.
When you look at me with such love, I sometimes feel I am not worthy of being loved so much.
I know what it means to be truly loved.
I know that I always have you with me, even when you are not by my side.
I know that I am on your mind as much as you are on mine.
I know that I will get to cuddle with my best friend and that is one thing we both live for.
I know the scariest thought each of us has is “what if something happens to her/him?”
I know that I love you with all my heart and that you love me with all of yours.
Loving you means that I am free to be the best I can be, knowing you are by my side.


So this is one of those sappy layouts that my kids HATE to read! :) and it is going into my Love album.  Yes I have an album dedicated to all those mushy I love you things that I say about the people I care about.  It is the People We Love album.  It is getting full and for that I am truly grateful.

Now for the Blog Candy! :)  I have a sampler pack of all 12 colors of Divine Twine in their own lil' tin. All you have to do is leave a comment below and on Thursday March 24, 2011 I will post  a winner.  Remember to leave me a way to get in touch with you, either through email, blog, or Cricut.com message board username. :) You don't have to become a follower, but comments are always appreciated! :)

Thank you for visiting our Blog Hop today!
Have a Wonderful Weekend and enjoy this beautiful spring day! :)
Hugs,
Laura

And this layout sketch:



And the next challenge was to use this color pallette! eek!
I have a plan, but come back later to see what I made! :)

Have a great day and don't forget to come back tomorrow to see all the participants in this blog hop! :)

On to other items... The Great Paper Purge is still in effect. I have never purged my paper.  Not to this extent anyway.  I have paper that I bought from Hobby Lobby when I first started buying paper.  This is some seriously ugly paper! I plan on making lots of envelopes! LOL.

Anyway, I think I have already given away 1000  sheets of paper in various RAKS.  Now I have probaby a foot of paper in a stack and I have only gone through half of my patterned paper.  So, now it is time to shred some of it to put in packages, and then I think I will have to send some to the scrapbook store to sell in consignment.  Some is going to my DD's school for donation.  Some of it is going to my classroom for various projects.  Still So much left.  I am seriously thinking the only thing different between me and the people on Hoarders is that I have it organized!  My dream is to get the room purged down and in order so I can get my dream desk!  We shall see.

Have a great night and don't forget to visit the ladies above and give them some love, they do beautiful work! :)
