Can U believe February is almost gone....

Where has this month gone? The time just seems to be on a fast moving airplane...or I am just too busy!! LOL!! But this Friday is March already!! With the howling winds we had last evening, night and this morning, I am hoping most of the lion part is over....LOL..we had winds sustained at 35 mph and gusts of 45+. Sounded like the roof was gonna come off.  The windows even rattled and caused some nervous cats to not sleep well, in turn waking me several times during the night.  But, after checking around outside, all seems to be okay, didn't see any loose shingles, just cat toys, etc blown into one corner of the yard. Lots of other people's trash to pick up though! Cold, cold, cold wind that just cuts right through ya...so guess what, I stayed in the house and created a little bit! LOL!
I surely enjoyed my weekend. My friend Jan and I went and got our hair cuts on Friday afternoon. Saturday morning we decided to spend some time together shopping like we used to. We got free facials, did lunch, then shopped some more. Sure had a fun time...it has been a long time since she has felt like getting out that much. We loved catching up!
Sunday found me in front of the TV! My "girls" all cuddled in around me and we watched the Daytona 500! Jimmie Johnson won again! It was a very good race! (Nothing like the crash of the night before!) Then I fixed some soft tacos, had dinner, fed all my cats and settled in to watch the Oscars. I even stayed awake for all of them. I thought it was a pretty good show and although I did not know the host, thought he did a pretty good job. All the ladies looked ravishing in their gorgeous dresses and the gents were pretty dapper too! I was even pleased with the winners, especially ARGO for Ben Affleck!
Yesterday the master bath got a new counter top, new sink and new faucet. Now I have both baths finished! The next will be the kitchen sink, but gotta wait until I get some more cash built up. I am a happy camper. Will take some photos to show you soon. Right now, just gonna put some pages I have done up so you can see what I've been doing all day...ROFL!
Here's Miss Hayden in a QP I created and gave as a freebie on Miriam's Scraps! This was made especially for Penny. the photo that is blended is one I took when we took our trip last summer. The other two are from her mom's Facebook page!
Here's my gorgeous niece Sebrina in a QP I created and is at Miriam's Scraps as a freebie now. Don't remember who the Word Art is from. The kit is a new one that Miriam hasn't released yet called Mini Kit 12, the background paper is from her Mini Kit 10. The photo is from Sebrina's Facebook.
I downloaded this free kit from Lesley at Scrapiness Down Under called Amazing Azaleas and just had to create this for some photos of the awesome blooms I captured on my trip to Georgia in March of 2011!
This kit from Kyra at With A Russian Dutch Heart called Forgotten Tears is so gorgeous that I knew I had to find a photo to use with it. Success, I found this one of me sitting high above the river that runs through the Grand Canyon of The Yellowstone at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. I used 2 of Arlene's clusters from this kit. All these designers have some awesome freebies for you if you visit their sites...you can find them listed in my favorites on the right! Stop by and say thanks for all they so generously share!
Well, guess I had better see if I can stand up now...my bum is getting pretty numb from sitting here too long! LOL and it will soon be time to feed all those hungry babies....LOL! Y'all all have a great week ahead and make lots and lots of memories to share! Chat with you more next time. Luv, Mat


  1. Boa noite, querida amiga Mat!
    Eu sabia que as QP, que você fez, iriam ficar muito bonitas com as fotos! Estão lindas!
    Eu continuo atarefada com o tratamento das minhas poodles, ainda faltam 24 dias...
    Minha neta Rebecca está quase boa da otite.
    Amanhã vou ao meu homeopata para consulta de controle do tratamento.
    Querida amiga, obrigada pela visita e pelo carinho.
    Abraços, Neli.

  2. You did well to stay in on Sunday with that aweful weather!
    Great layouts you've made. and oh, how lovely is your blog layout!!!
    Thanks for using my kit for it, LOL!
    Have to get busy soon, so I better go and post something for today, no idea what to talk about yet, but we'll see what I can ramble about, hahaha.
    Have a fantastic day.

  3. Good night, dear friend Mat!
    I knew the QP, you did, would be very pretty with photos! They are beautiful!
    I keep busy with the treatment of my poodles, there are still 24 days ...
    My granddaughter Rebecca is almost good otitis.
    Tomorrow I go to my homeopath to query the control treatment.
    Dear friend, thank you for your visit and affection.
    Hugs, Neli.
