Hit 100, life being 5, and the cat

Ok, so I have 3 more things I want to post before hitting my head to the bed. I finally hit 100 views on my favorite layout that I refered to a couple days back. I can link you to the site but unless you have an account, you may not be able to view it. It is actually at 101, kind of ironic because of my page I created today called gingerbread 101. So Yipppeee. I am so proud of myself.

Next on the list is about my brave little girl going through her first life experience. At 5 years old, she got in the car after a full day of kindergarten and says to me last week that someone didn't want to play with her. I brushed it off, only to have her talk about it each subsequent day for the rest of the week. Well, it has become a problem for her and this little girl is starting to be mean to her. I feel so bad, and want to protect her from getting hurt, but I am now using this opportunity to teach her about different kinds of friends. Plus I am getting a lesson in not being able to control her life either...(ie who she plays with on the playground). How can kindergarten already have bullies?

And the cat, well, I am going to save this posting for another day...It will be a long one.

Gingerbread 101

I spent the evening last night after my long overdue hair appointment, having some QT with my dear hubby...(I fell asleep while he watched The bucket List). But I LOVE my hair. I went blonde after a long long time.
On another note, I came across these photos, and realized that I had not yet scrapped them. So, I found a wonderful collab kit called Grosgrain Girls by Color with Caryn, Scrappy Wiess Designs, and Mel Hains designs.
I think I used a bit from each kit. It is hard to tell. I just pulled bits and pieces from the entire collab.
I think that the colors worked perfect for the pictures. I really love to share the layouts with the designers, but sometimes, I just can't figure out how to do that. Oh well, maybe one day, when I get that extra two hours in the day back that are somehow lost, I will figure that out too.
