Hi from Opryland

Roger has a Co-Op convention and guess who got to tag along!!!!! This is a late birthday and early Christmas for me...We went on the General Jackson last night and had a wonderful time. The show was "A Vegas Style Christmas" and they had look alikes for Tina Turner, Elton John and of course ELVIS...It was so cute and the food was awesome. We were at the table with farmers from though out Tennessee so Roger really enjoyed that. Tonight we are going to the Louise Mandrell's Country Christmas. I will share more with you later but will put up a couple of pictures from last night...I hope everyone had a Wonderful Thanksgiving....

Early Thanksgiving

Well we had our annual family Thanksgiving today and I am worn out. It is always so much fun but I am always beat when they all leave....I will post some pics later on in the week. I wanted to share a couple of pictures of Josh's Christmas gift project that he has made for a few people for Christmas. We had so much fun playing corn hole at Bubba and Michelle's that Josh got the pattern from John and constructed several sets for Christmas gifts. He made Roger a set for Christmas of course INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER/COTTON Theme....I don't have one present purchased for Christmas I have got to get busy, I just can't seem to get into the spirit...Have a good Monday...

Fiska Fun

Just going to wind up my blog post on the wonderful Fiska Friendzy this last weekend. We all boarded the party bus and went to a recording studio which was awesome and Cherrie lead us in recording a Fiska Boogie song that she wrote. Then back to crop some more and last but not least we went to Nashville Palace to dinner and line dance to our song...that is where our sweet Meghan was awarded the "big scissors" as Fiskateer of the Year....thanks so much to Fiskars and our Rebecca for an unbelievable Saturday...

FiskaFrenzy Saturday

Well of course we didn't get to bed until around 2:30 SAt. morning and were up early and I would have to get a sick headache....which I hated so much because this was a day I had looked so forward to....I tried my best not to let it get to me and we really, really had a ball. It was wonderful to meet all of the fun scrappers and do a make and take with Lil' Davis and Suzanne Fanning (Walker) was also there. It was an awesome time....The day started as I passed out tack pins and Hot tamales to all of the girls as they entered our huge scrap room!!! We had danish, muffins juice coffee and all the breakfast goodies. We started croppin' immediately. Lil' Davis who was acquired by Fiskars about this time last year was with us and they did awesome page kits make and takes. They were so nice and also Canon had a rep their that demoed photo printers which I might add were AWESOME...would totally love to have one of those, he made us 2 pictures of our choice from our SD card. Okay gonna post a couple of pics so far and will pick up maybe tomorrow or Wednesday...until later~~

That is the only word I can come up with to describe the weekend. It started on Friday morning when I loaded all the boxes that Rebecca had shipped to me and took off for Nashville. Rebecca Peck who is one of our Lead Fiskateers and host of our Nashville FiskaFrenzy, Bettye and I worked on putting together prizes and gift bags, name badges and all sorts of things before we took off for Sassy Scrapper in Murf. my home scrap store and Rebecca did make and take at a Friday night crop..we stayed 2 hrs there and then were off to Timeless Reflections in Hendersonville, Tn where Michelle Luther and all of her "croppin" girls made us feel so welcome. We did another couple of make and takes there and it was back to the hotel where we went back to our task of working on things for the next day. That is where I will end this post and pick back up tomorrow on our actual Fisk-A-Frenzy day....until later...

Tags and ATC's

Well its getting closer and closer to my FiskaFrenzy weekend...We had a chat in the chatroom tonight for questions and just fun talk...Rebecca has worked so hard to make it a wonderful time for all. I am posting today my tag for the tag swap. There were about 30 of us that are exchanging tags with Pinky heading the swap up. Then my next post is an ATC that is using the "house template" that Valerie uses for lots of ATC swaps. I made it a gingerbread house of sorts...I am enjoying these and actually have signed up for a couple of more so I've had hardly anytime to scrap pages!! Lilly and I took a class last night at Sassy's that was so much fun. I don't think I have laughed that much in a long time. Bettye and Brenda are just the best....I hope we're not "banned" from classes!!!! I will post the project sometime this week. It was an explosion box but not a simple one by any had an acrylic pop up and also pockets so you see it wasn't simple at all!!! okay got to work on my christmas Atc's....until later..

Busy Blogger!!!

Can you believe it is almost Thanksgiving? Where did this year go? It seems as though the older I get the faster time goes. I have worked on projects all weekend for our upcoming Fisk-a-Frenzy in Nashville this coming up weekend. I would share but I promised our Lead Fiskateer Rebecca that I would keep my mouth shut and believe me it is hard!!! It is going to be a wonderful, fun weekend and I can't wait. I will share my swap tags later on in the week but today I'm going to share a project that I'm working on called a Scrap-O-dex. Lee had a class at Sassy's about putting this together and of course we put our "own twist" to make it our own. I just have a couple of pages actually with photos on it, it could become an after Christmas project!! It has dividers for all 12 months and we covered with "month papers" and I decided to do pictures of the kids/grandkids that had a birthday in that month. On the pocket on the back is a pull out tag which I'm going to put a calendar that can be taken off each year. Just thought it was a cute project and a good possiblity for a Christmas gift. Have a good week everyone....

Halloween Fun

We had such fun Halloween night, I even got Big Daddy out of the field and into the fun. We went over to Sissy and John's house where Jeremy brought Robin and Savannah over to trick or treat. Of course John had the garage decorated with strob lights, a cooler full of dry ice and lots of fun things. I have to say I think Halloween is John's favorite holiday. He, Andy and Parker dressed up as Michael Myers and went around the neighborhood terrorizing the was fun watching them have fun!!! Of course its sad to me that Brady and Chase didn't go this year because they thought they were to big...I hate for my babies to grow up (isn't that selfish!! LOL)

Way to go Titans!!!

Our Tennessee Titans are now 8-0. Isn't that just wonderful. Our dear friends Steve and Pat McKnight have a box at the Titans stadium and invite us really often to go to the games and we have so much fun. For some strange reason I have never posted any pictures so after todays win (a hard fought win I might add) I decided to post some fun pics that I made. I'm still getting together some pics of our Halloween fun and will post them later in the week. Hope everyone has a great week....
