Monday AGAIN

Oh heavens, I think Monday's are coming around quicker and quicker these days. My weekends seem to FLY by and I never get to everything I want to do(or need too-like clean the spare room of all it's clutter hahahah!) LOL. We went to friends on Saturday night to watch the Pre-Rugby world cup match between Scotland and S.A.- and only landed up coming home after 1am! the World Cup starts now in September and there is a HUGE hype already building around here! LOL- Oh save my liver and my voice!!!

And OH my Goodness- Dearest Bunny nominated me for the NICE MATTERS AWARD!!! Thank you Bunny and I love you too!! What a great surprise this was- I had a huge lump in my throat and warm fuzzies all over! I mean I know there is the "rocker blogger" and a couple others, but this one seems so special!
This award will be awarded to those that are just nice people , good blog friends and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!
I have to nominate in return


SYLVIA- who is one of the warmest people that I have met via my blog- I feel like I have known her for years! I love reading her blog and finding out what she has been up too. And even through all the troubles at home she makes time for 'her friends on line"
This person does not have a blog- - JAZZ- my wonderful CT team leader and friend! I wouldn't be half the designer I am if it wasn't for this wonderful woman who has become a CLOSE friend and confidant!! Jazz keeps me sane- and will take out her 'wet noodle' to defend me and my fellow designers! LOL. Silvia and Jazz are two woman I would truly love to meet one day!
And MELANIE who has the most amazing word art on her blog and who through her own pain ALWAYS finds the time to support others!

MRS.MILES- for having the most inspirational blog to read! Not to mention her wonderful 'trinkets' that she so kindly gives out to all of us!
There are soooo many special blogs out there that it is ALWAYS so difficult to choose ! Love you ALL.

I played a bit today and made a LO with some photo's I have been dying to scrap for a while!
These are two of Nathans friends from school- they came fishing with us one day and Gus jumped off the boat to hold it- but sunk to his KNEE's in the mud! LOL- Matthew(with yellow hat) decided NO WAY's was he helping Gus get out- far toooo messy for him- hahaha, so Gus decided to have a MUD BATH! He eventually crawled out! hahaha.

And I made you a template for your Freebie- it includes PNG's for the DIP users too. And I added the frames and my little Dragonfly I used in my LO for you too. http://www.4shared.com/file/22947812/321e5a45/kb-boyswillbeboys.html - Until tomorrow-(yup Tutorial Tuesday0 LOL) Hugs and Loves Kim

Congrats on your 'nice gal' award, that is too sweet, and I heartily agree with your other nominations!

Your page with the boys is so fun, reminds me of my own kids, they were actually 'river rats', and had many of the same kinds of outcomes. In fact, we used to call the middle child and his friend 'Tom and Huck'. lol. Thank you for your gift.

jill said...

Thanks Kim. I am leaving in a few hours for Central America for a month without internet!! Hope I can check in once in a while so I don't miss out!

Melberry said...

Awwwwww ... you made me cry, too. You have no idea how much I needed to hear something nice from someone today, not to mention hearing it from someone special. If you're ever willing to share your e-mail address (mine is on my blog), I could tell you privately how intensely meaningful it was to hear from you today in such a very thoughtful way. Thank you always for the gifts, encouragement, laughs, and hugs. Take care of YOU, Melanie http://mmdcreations.blogspot.com/

Heather said...

Mrs. Miles said...

Hey Kimmer (try THAT one out on ya! snicker) .... your template Rocks! Thanks for 'lerting me. I love the pop out look on your layout, I've not tried one of these yet... so your giving me ideas, no? Went and got me all creative. Gee! Did you ever get the boys shorts clean after their fun, and well, that looks like fun. There's a lake south of the border here called Soap Lake, and it is known for its healing water, and the bottom is mud like that and ppl go out and wallow in it, and I BEGGED Miles to go out w/ me there one summer, but could not coax him for the life of me, but I swear I will do it one year. Well, it IS cooler here, but we are 'specting a bit more hot toward the end of the week, thankfully. How long does your winter last? I better scoot and get something accomplished girl. I am 'shouting' out your blog on my chat - do YOU use hello too, by chance? You can add me if you do, my user name is lalalime

Soon, soon, soon, will catchya soon.

hugs,
Barb

Mrs. Miles said...

Oh my GOSH - haha, i forgot to say THANKS THANKYOU fanks Gurl for nominating me and saying I'm a nice gal haha! I'm squeeling w/ delight here, can you just here me? Also wanted to say, they probably call that place Soap Lake because you would need a ton of soap to clean up after being in it. At any rate, here's a website talking about it.

hugs x 2, Barb
