Practical Scrappers, House, and Challenge Masters

Some stuff to share tonight...1st is my DT creation for Practical Scrappers... challenge- acryllic paint (most of us own some- numerous colors most likely.) Pop over to the blog and see many ways to use it. I used my Heidi Swapp masks and painted around them using the different fall colors. Other ways I like to use acryllic paint- paint alphabet letters to fit your layout. If you look at the Favorite Season layout at the top of my blog, you will see teal letters- I painted my jillibean letters to match the colors of the layout! I also love painting bubble wrap and putting texture on my background of my pages. Paint adds a great dimension to the edges of your photos. Finally, I love just painting across the background of my layout to add an extra dimension. Good luck with this week's challenge.

The guys had the roof completed and the "tivex" (spelling?) on the front of the house by the time I was done at school today. Brian, Joe and Todd are working there tonight to put in windows... yeah!!!

We only need the ridge cap on (goes along the peak of the roof)
Service Electric came out and ran our cable wire this weekend.
Here is a layout that I created for the "Go Green" challenge over at Challenge Masters. For this challenge you needed to use "items that are not normally used for scrapbooking."
I used notepaper and paperclips.
You have until the 30th to create up to 15 challenges. Pop over and check it out!
Update on Grandma-
See went home today
She must have been skipping medicine which has caused this.
She lives alone and I pray she will be okay.
I am thankful that she is well enough to come home.
She will have a nurse come visit her (at least tomorrow)
I hope it is frequently.
Tonight I am thankful for...
Grandma
Movie night
children's manners
Yvonne- picking up my necklace tonight- fixing it
Grandma remembering to take her medicine properly (please)
progress at the property
