A Series of Cards

I had SO much fun making these cards! I really wanted to just keep them and hang on to them, but then I figured it would be a wast of money (and time) to just have them sitting them around the house. I decided I would send them to some of my friends instead! I took my inspiration from Kristina Werner. I have been wanting to try this technique out for a while, but just now got around to actually doing it.
I didn't want to waste a lot of paper so I ended up making a few more cards out of the left overs from this first one. *Supplies for the card above: The paper is from Cherry Hill's October Afternoon collection, the dress step is Stampabilities' Wire Dress Form, the "Just for u" is from Stampabilities' sophie caps alphas clear stamps, and the ink was Bright Pink by Stampabilites.

*Supplies for the card above: Paper from Cherry Hill's October Afternoon collection and the flowers with "keep in touch" bellow them are two stamps from the Sentiments collection from American Crafts and I embossed them with clear embossing powder.

*Supplies for the card above: Paper from Cherry Hill's October Afternoon, the "to you from me" stamp is from the sentiments collection from American Crafts stamped in black ink from stampabilities, and some orange ribbon from the Paper Studio.
Ok, so I am off to work a day early because there is always some sort of drama happening in my partner's life! At least I don't have to be there until 12 and I will get off at 6! In the mean time, check out my cousin Lori's blog about a really funny pharmacy story! I can honestly say that I've never had this happen to me before! Enjoy your Sunday!

A Few Pages

Today has been another stay-at-home and craft day! Even though neither of these pages were made today, I still wanted to share something! What I made today I REALLY wanted to share, but I want them to get to where they are going first ---- so be on the look out this weekend for a post!

This first page I am not a huge fan of! I wanted to put in a page about me starting off my career as a pharmacist at Rite Aid and I wanted to incorporate my old name plate (my new one looks almost exactly the same except that it says "Pharmacy Manager/Immunizing Pharmacist" under my name). It is an ok page and I suppose that it serves it's purpose. Supplies for this one pare pretty simple: red and blue card stock, a Rite Aid logo that I printed out on my computer and my old name plate! This second page I am much more fond of! Even though this shows that I am almost 2 years behind on my scrapbook since Lila will be 2 next month! Good grief time flies!!
Supplies for this page include some old yellow letters that I had in my stash from AGES ago, the pink background paper is from The Paper Studio, the butterfly is from The Paper Studio - La Petites 3-D Stickers, and the little round thing under the center picture is a little round "looking glass" that says LOVE from Making Memories.
As you can tell from all the different pages lately, my scrapbook is a mixture of 12x12 pages and 8&1/2 x 11 pages. So far I am enjoying switching it up a bit and I think it adds a litte interest to looking through the book!

Atlanta '07

I have not done anything creative these past 2 days that I have had off, but I still wanted to give you all at least 1 post about something before heading back to work my 3 day weekend. These are some more pages that I made last weekend. They are of a trip that Juan and I made to Atlanta during the first year we were married. We had a great time and we want to go back sometime, but we just have to find the time to go! Anyway, here's the first page:
And the second page:
*Paper from K&Company Wild Saffron collection
*Flower on 2nd page is also from the K&Company Wild Saffron collection
*Buttons are just from my random button collection :)

Crazy Two Weeks

The past two weeks have been INSANE for me! I normally only work 75 hours every pay period (which is two weeks). However, this past pay period, I worked a total of 96 plus hours (AND it was the first of the month and we filled over 900 prescriptions when we had been averaging around 650 to 700 per week so this was a significant jump for our little pharmacy).

I say "plus" because what I will get paid for is 96 even though on Monday (Labor Day and the day I was supposed to get off "early" at 6:00) I had someone pull up at the drive-thru window after I already had the computers shut down and the gates pulled down and I was about to walk out the door (all I had left to do was log off my cash register drawer and literally walk out the door and lock up).

Of course, being the softy that I am, I end up staying because the prescription was for a kid and I was almost certain there was not another pharmacy open in Sparta...and I didn't want to be the mean person to send them to Cookeville to a 24 hour pharmacy (and competitor). I also have high hopes that the parents will remember me staying after on a holiday to fill their son's prescription the next time they need a prescription filled. However, I do not get paid for my time that I spent there filling the kid's prescriptions (or for calling the ER doctor when I realize that what he's written for does not even exist)!

Just my luck! They will remember the nice pharmacist who stayed after her shift had ended right?!?

The last day I was at work was this past Thursday. It is normal for me to get a 3 day weekend every other week because I work a 3 day weekend every other week! However, I have NEVER looked forward to a 3 day weekend like I did this past one!

So on Friday I ran around and paid some bills and did some errands. That night Juan had to work a 12 hour shift himself so after I cooked dinner, kissed him goodbye, and cleaned the kitchen, I got to do whatever I wanted to do and that was spend some time working on my scrapbook (guilt free)! The rest of the weekend has mainly been spent with Juan since we hadn't seem much of each other the past 2 weeks.

I have been trying to get caught up on the past several years that I have neglected! I have tons of pictures in boxes that I have not done anything with! This is a picture of a page that I had done a while ago (not this past Friday). I really like it for some reason. Maybe it's just because of what it's of - our honeymoon and the start of our life together! Who knows!

I was being lazy today and didn't take it out of the page protector (and I wish I had)...oh well!
Paper: Feeling Groovy "No Worries" May Flowers Paper from My Mind's Eye
