Rubix Cube

I did this layout for my BOM challenge at DDD.

I don't have pictures of this, and I don't know what ever happened to that particular cube, but the story needed to be told.
The Story of Felicia and the Rubix Cube
Once upon a time there was a little girl. She was fascinated by the fact that her mama could figure out a rubix cube. Sometimes it took her mama a long time to figure it out, but she always did. Well, one day when the little girl was only about 6 years old, she decided she wanted to try. So she grabbed the cube, without permission,twisted it all up and attempted to fix it up. well, time went by and it got closer to the time when her mama was going to come home and the little girl was no where near figuring out that cube! She knew her mama would be annoyed that the she had mixed it up after so much hard work to put it back. So the little girl got the bright idea to peel off the stickers and put them back on the "right" way. She finished just in time to put it back where it usually sat. Mama came home and saw that cube and said "what on earth happened to my rubix cube! Every single sticker was either crooked or falling off. The little confessed and everyone had a good laugh. 20 years later people still joked about it, and she still wasn't allowed to help with a cube again!

Goings on

Did ya'll think I fell off the planet?I know there haven't been many posts lately. Nothing much is new. Aidan and I made bread last night, there is one slice left, lol. Just got done eating dinner before Ian left for work, I made spaghetti and meat- a-balls (you have to say it like that, meat-a-balls), and home made spaghetti sauce. Not to bad for a first time with the sauce, will use the rest of it tomorrow with the meatball sandwiches. Probably will try my hand at making Italian bread for that.
Gas prices are INSANE. If they go up much more, it won't be worth me working. I'll miss my discount, and the people of course. Oh well, what can I do?
I'm off to read a book to the little man.
later taters!

Journaling: Ian, I always wanted to play an instrument, and it's always thrilled me that you used to play the violin. Apparently you played really well with out practice, and amazing with it. I wonder if Aidan will play one day?

Happy NSD!

I hope everyone had a great National Scrapbooking Day. I behaved and didn't spend, lol. I've been working behind the scenes at DDD to get ready for some post-NSD fun. I've been dabbling in digital design. I've made several little kits. I'm no pro, but I thought they were cute. I'm on the Creative Team for Ashley who owns the site. She's been mighty busy lately, and hasn't had a lot of time to spend there (that happens when you add a new little person to the family) and the rest of the team (Tina and Irene- hi girls!) and I have been trying to keep things hopping there. So we decided we'd make a HUGE digital kit, and give a few pieces of it away each day (starting on the 7th- we figured we'd give everyone a chance to recover from the over load of NSD). So here's a sneak peak of the kit, keep in mind this is just a teaser, this kit is huge! I should know I split up the downloads-insert big grin here.
