Real Life News and back with a freebie

I think I have one of those, LOL. In all my excitement about the CT positions, I forgot that I have some RL news to share as well. I finally got an offer on the house, it was a fair offer and I singed on the dotted line. Of course it is upon condition of them selling their home and the usual getting financing. It's good until October 30 but.............once they remove their conditions I will have 30 days to pack up and leave, LOL. I can deal with that, I think. Poor B-man didn't take the news so well, this is the only house he's known and of course is looking at it from a different perspective than I am. My memories of this place these last 5 years haven't been all good ones, mostly bad I'm afraid. Still it's the security and I can understand where he's coming from. Where are we going once all is official? I have no clue, I'm flying by the seat of my pants which is so not like me. I just don't want to look that far ahead and something not work out, kwim?

As for other RL news, it was so hot out on the weekend I ended up shutting all the windows and putting the central air on, yesterday it cooled down so of course the air went off and windows open again. It got col last night! I woke up all snuggled in my blankets. Today I went out with jeans and a long sleeve t-shirt.........talk about one extreme to the other. I was a little concerned as I pulled out my 'favourite' jeans though. Been very lazy this summer, too much time in front of computer, was worried I wouldn't be able to get into them..........imagine my surprise as I pulled them on, no fighting with the zipper or anything.

Ahhhh, my sinus' are driving me crazy!! I have a constant headache and my ears hurt, I never get earaches. I'm really hoping that at my age I'm not developing allergies..............ok, done with that now :)

Scrapping news; there will be a Make it Snappy speed scrap at Scrap Orchard on Friday evening again. This will be followed by a chat.........those always get way out of control in a fun way. Kami has a gorgeous participation kit for all those who finish up and post their layout. There is also going to be another Farmer's Market!! I can't wait to see what's in the shop, I missed the last one but the one before I stocked up and got some awesome deals. I know Kami is retiring a few kits, don't have the downlo' on Shauna yet.

I have to share this one I made using Shauna's Mum's the Word kit as well. The colours are wonderful, rich and inviting. I just love scrapping my nieces.............my brother does too! I do the work and gets a great scrapbook of his children.

One using Kami's new kit Happy..........the colours of this kit is exactly that, happy.

Here's a layout I did with Franziska's collab Urban Solitude with Moon Scraps. I am so proud of this layout. It was also for the very first Speed Scrap I've ever hosted. This kit is awesome, it has a great urban feel to it.

Here's a template I made a while back for the weekly Sunshine Studio newsletter. If you missed it and would like it here you go. I've been in a slump lately, fresh out of ideas. If anyone has any I will gladly attempt something, need some fresh ideas. Think I'm going in to a slump with my layouts as well............last two days haven't really produced much. Here we go again, just hope it doesn't last as long as the last one.

Congratulations on your house sale. We've just put ours on the market too, though there's not a lot of interest in it yet. Fingers crossed everything goes through without a hitch.

Congrats on getting something on paper for your house. I know how stressful that can be.
