2 Sketches 4 U Week 4, and CPS 70

June 28, 2008

Happy Saturday morning!! Did everyone have a good first night of the weekend? We had some fun at a Missoula Osprey baseball game...even though they lost again. I don't think they have won a game all season yet. Not the norm for the Osprey...I hope they get it figured out soon! But, it was still fun, and nice to be out in the gorgeous weather we have been having! Now, today is supposed to be pushing 100 degrees...which would be near record or record highs for this time of year in Montana. I went outside for a little bit and watered my flowers, and piddled around on the deck for a bit, just enjoying the mild temp while I could!

I have a couple of things to share this morning. First up, my card for the week 4 sketch at 2 Sketches 4 U. Such a cute and fun little sketch blog....be sure to check it out if you haven't! This card uses lots of the "Celebration" paper and rub-ons by American Crafts. As a former cheerleader for 12 years, I decided it needed to be my mission to use the cute megaphone on this card! I like how it turned out! :)And this is my card for sketch #70 at the CPS blog. It is hard to believe that we have done 70 sketches already!! It is such a fun challenge blog to be part of. The other girls are just awesome- we have so much fun emailing....with dance parties and everything. ;) Tee hee girls! Anyways, this card uses the "Spring & Summer" paper and chipboard from American Crafts, along with some older American Crafts minimark sentiment rub-ons....and Doodelbug Designs rhinestones, which are my very fave rhinestones these days! I have also been tagged by the sweet Leslie Ashe. So, here we go!

1. 10 years ago....
I graduated from high school, and was ready to move on to college life! I had made the University of Montana co-ed cheer squad, and we had aspirations to compete in the UCA National Cheer Competition in Orlando, FL (which we did, BTW). My whole summer that year was dedicated to cheerleading. (And I cannot believe my 10 year reunion is in July...time just flew by!)

2. 5 things on today's "to do" list....
Water flowers (done), blogging (almost done), kitchen clean-up, movie with Josh, and church at 7:05pm.

3. Snacks I enjoy....
Dark chocolate, healthy pop kettle corn, almost any type of fruit, crackers & cheese, and yogurt with grapenuts mixed in.

4. Things I would do if I was a millionaire....
~Buy my parents a house of their own, so they wouldn't have to live in the church parsonage anymore.
~Pay off my inlaws house.
~Fund Casey's college.
~Build the house of our dreams.
~Travel a lot.
~Invest wisely so Josh and I wouldn't have to work anymore...and we could do the things we love, volunteer on a regular basis...those kind of things.

5. Places I have lived....
Ronan, Montana
Tucson, Arizona
Missoula, Montana
Salt Lake City, Utah
and back to Missoula, Montana

I think I am supposed to tag people, but I am not going to. If you want to do the questions on your blog....please feel free, and let me know so I can read your answers!

Well, I hope that everyone has a lovely weekend, full of fun and sun...but not too much sun! Don't want to get toasted!

Enjoy your day,
