I've Been Tagged...........

I guess I'm supposed to post this picture and explain 'cuz I've been tagged by Karilee at http://blessedmemoriesscrapbooksbykarrilee.blogspot.com/2009/01/ive-been-tagged.html

This is a very special picture to our family. I'll show you the whole story in a minute. Anne was calling her Auntie Chelle immediately after receiving passing marks to earn her Black Belt in Kung Fu in July 2007. That grin was contagious. Uncle Clint (the cop) and cousin Lexi were there as was Uncle Curtis, Auntie Jen, cousin Alex, Mom, Dad, sister Lacy and her boyfriend, Trent. She had a fan club. Unfortunately (or otherwise) Auntie Chelle was cousin Cole's basketball coach and they had a big game that night.

So, below is the competition. She had to do many things, but some of the highlights were when she had to show take-down techniques and used her friend James as her attacker. Her forms were very strong and she happens to be one of the best kickers in the school. Her upper foot on her scissors kick is over 7' and her lower foot is consistantly 2.5-3 feet off of the floor. And, yes, I'm just a little prejudiced. : ) The handsome hunk teaching her how to properly tie her Black Belt is Lama, the instructors son and one of Lacy's good, good friends and has also become one of Anne's chief supporters.

Now, I believe I have to tag six additional people, but I'm not at all sure how to do that, so for now..............................................beware, it could be you next.

Love and Blessings.

Scrapbook Challenge! January 11-18!

You may finally have me and I'm scared.....................I got a load full of the cricut last weekend and I almost love it. Now mind you, the one I actually have at home is a used model that has no cartridges right now. It was an amazingly generous gift from the mom of the wonderful kiddos I babysit periodically. She's a sweet friend and checked it out to be sure it worked, but the seller just upgraded and wanted to keep the original cartridge. So, I didn't even try it out.......yet. I was at TWO different crops last weekend, both had cricuts and one even had the 12x12 cutter attached to the computer!!! Okay, I'm not quite THAT sold yet, but that one does actually belong to "the mom" AND she lives next door! So, I'm going to test drive several cartridges from the "Becky store" and see which one(s) I need to have to start my collection. The above title was done with the cricut, but I also did a layout with "Hockey is Life", "woof, yap, bark", and a "Tinkerbell" and "Piglet". Also discovered Glue Dots......Lulu is mounted with Glue Dots, pretty cool. Who would've thought that there was still product out there that I hadn't at least heard of?!?!?!?!
