The storm has come and gone. I ended up using many of my storm supplies. We lost power and had some water in the basement. I am still trying to clean up my scrap area and family room. Yes (shudder) I had some water in my scrap area. In comparison to others in our area? I am not going to complain!
The winner of the RAK is WILNA. She came the closest to guessing the number of tea light's in the basket. There were 137! and no I didn't count them. I had purchased a pack of 144 and knew how many I had taken out. Email your addy Willna

Well friends it's about 4:30 p.m. here in NY and apparently Irene is on her way. I've spent the last couple of days preparing for the storm and I am as ready as I'm going to be.
Water? Check
Snacks? Check
Flash Lights? Check
Batteries? Check
Duct Tape?Check Don't know if I'll need it but it fixes everything right?!
Camp Stove and Propane?Check
Candles?Check, Check, Check
Hubby thinks I might have been a little excessive in my candle planning but hey if we lose power for a few days.....I want to be able to scrap or at least do something besides sit in the dark! This is where my  RAK idea came from. I've taken a picture of my "lighting station". Note the basket of tea lights? GUESS HOW MANY TEA LIGHTS ARE IN THE BASKET AND I WILL SEND YOU A RAK FROM MY SCRAP STASH. Just leave me a comment with your guess. I'll choose the winner closest to the number. Let's sayyyy on Wednesday.
Some of our snacks. I even bought some instant cofee. I've heard it tastes terrible but hey,I've got some nervous energy going here. I might just need a jolt of caffeine come tomorrow!
I've got my copics and a bunch of images ready to go. I really need to learn how to use these markers!
Good luck to those who are in the path of the storm~"See" ya soon!

Where Did August Go?

I dunno~It's been a blur.

Eastern Zone's Championship at Penn State. Now this was a great experience for Kelsey and I hope she makes it again another year. The Peachy Paterno Ice Cream didn't hurt my feelings either. lol  Being able to walk to the Berkey Creamery made sitting in the heat all day...just a little easier and tastier!

Photo heavy today~

My mild mannered school girl~Kelsey Kent. Glasses, Gatorade, Power Bar annnd
 SHAZAM!! Aqua Girl appears!
 Happily she DID NOT have to dive off of this!

Oh I even have a page and a card today. These were my Let's Scrap DT assignments while I was away. I finished them before we left and posted them over at Let's Scrap. Shame on me I  never set any blog posts before I left. I absolutely adored this sketch! Sorry that the challenge is over but you are still welcome to use the sketch!

Next stop? Antiquing in Warren County! Or maybe junking~all depends on the way you see it.

Rocket Age With A New Sketch

Good Morning~So I am a day late with the Let's Scrap WEDNESDAY sketch. Sorry about that. It's been a crazy busy week. My daughter swam in the Junior Olympics last week and I'm still recovering! Sadly I don't have photos but I do have some videos to get posted. Next stop? Eastern Zone Championships at Penn State. I am beyond proud of this girl!
Who knew that this free spirited water loving girl would be swimming 

OK. Back to scrapping! I'm also excited because I made the Let's Scrap Design Team for a second term! Here's this weeks sketch which was the sketch used for the call.

I used the left side of the sketch only and an adorable photo of  my nephews. The Rocket Age papers from October Afternoon came from a Scrapbook Circle Kit.
