Mother/Daughter and Doodlebug

Today has been a hectic day. I woke up this morning with a note on my monitor that said "Look at the wall in our hallway." The wall appears to be almost caving in. So I decided to take a good look around the apartment. There have always been cracks on the walls. It has always made me a bit nervous. So, the cracks in my room and the living room are worse. There are cracks in the kitchen now and in the hallway. I took pictures and told maintenance to come by today. About 9 am I got a call from maintenance that the people downstairs had water in their apartment and they would be on their way up here. I told him that was good since I had a request in for them anyway. A pipe is broken in the wall behind my washing machine, he has a plumber coming out to fix that, he is going to have someone come out to take a look at the building to make sure it is still safe. That was our morning.

Bailey and I had an 11 am appointment at Archiver's across the street for the Doodlebug Mini Album Workshop. We got there a little early.. that is just what I do.. I'm always way early, and we settled in. Bailey seemed to have a lot of fun making this little mini album and of course the scrapper in me had to bring the camera along LOL. Here are few pictures:

Ughhh, she was a mess today too LOL But it was a lot of fun to do this together. Then I did a little shopping afterward. I can't seem to stop myself! And now we are home!

I came home and finished up the page I was working on. This was a dinner out with my family.. from left to right in the picture is Kevin, Me, Taylor (the 18 year old), Michael (13 yrs), my sister Lora, Bailey (10 yrs) and my mother. We went to the Golden Corral, a huge buffet right here local. Everyone had a great time and we have plans to do this again when Kevin gets back. My sister had gone to Mardi Gras recently and had brought home the beads LOL

I have no idea who these papers are.. there was nothing written on the back. But I do love them. The lettering is Bounce Sizzlits with some stamping fun from the Retro Road Trip stamp set from Unity Stamp Co. and my favorite Barbara Trombley's Ultra Fine Black Glitter. The "Family" embellishment was handmade. I stamped that from Retro Road Trip stamp set from Unity Stamp Co. also. I took part of the stamp and stamped that on the patterned paper. I adhered it to chipboard and cut out the shape.. pop dotted it for dimension.. added some Barbara Trombley's Ultra Fine Black Glitter to it and wallahhh! My own hand made embellishment. I will put this in the Frosted Designs: Fabulous Friday Challenge, which is make your own embellishments. There is also a challenge up at Berry71Bleu to use chipboard. And last, but definitely not least I used a sketch from ScrapMuch - Sketch-y Friday. This was the sketch from June 8th.

Thanks for looking everyone. I hope you have a great rest of your Saturday! Is it bedtime yet? LOL Nope.. I need my time with Kevin. Bed will come soon enough :)
