Goodies and Heroes and Pub Requests, Oh My!

Jane, from Scrapbooking and Beyond, requested a layout today! Woot! It's so great to be published and the paycheck is helping pay off my camera, so I'm thrilled! And to my french speaking readers: the page that will be pubbed is in french, how cool is that?! Good to know art jumps over the language barrier!


Okay, I know a lot of you will be shocked. I know a lot wont agree. But here it is... I've never liked the NBC show Heroes. Neither has DH. We started watching because of the hype. Plus, it helped that the actor playing Peter is Milo Ventimiglia, who will always and forever be Jess from Gilmore Girls in my heart. We didn't really enjoy it, but we figured we should keep watching. It was bound to get better, right? I mean, everyone and their mother was talking about this show and how great it was!! Then after a while of still not liking it, we were stuck. We were bored, but we wanted to know what would happen. We are now into the 3rd season and nothing of note has happened. So, yesterday after watching the first 2 episodes of the season, we did what we should have done a loooooooooong time ago. We pushed the delete button on our PVR for the other episodes and we will not be watching again! I am actually relieved. It felt like a chore to watch, and really, who needs that? When the show finally ends, we'll just read the short and sweet recap and it'll be enough for us! If you like this show, by all means, enjoy it! But for us, it's a not-so-sad goodbye! ;)


On Monday, my goodie box from CARDS for the month of September finally arrived. I think they had something going on in their warehouse and all shipments were delayed. But I was tired of stalking the mailbox, lol! Plus, I hadn't seen the mag, so I didn't know what my card looked like in there. It wasn't photographed super well, not quite bright enough, but it still looks nice. Here's the card, this is the pic I took of it before I sent it in.

And here is the contents of my goodie box. It's like Xmas in October, super fun to see what's in there!


And finally, here are 2 layouts.

I just finished this one, I absolutely loved this diving skeleton at the Botanical Garden!

And I made this one a few months ago. This is Sean sliding down a small hill Keith made for him on Xmas Eve last year.
