While cyber scrappin' with my pal April (who has some really cool lo's going on) and DIGGING DEEP into the neverending box of goodies sent by my pal, I decided to check out the Ink-a-doo spray inks and pulled out some beige cardstock (its Bazzill and probably has a fancy name but its beige, ecru, light tan) LOL!!! The inks were lilac and royal blue. After spraying them, not only on the cardstock, but covering the entire work area, I decided that I needed to add the Ranger-red pepper for a splash of color. Voila! Americana!!! So I stared at it for an hour or three, resulting in a semi-stupor before grabbing the dainty TINY flowers in which I can't identify (if you can, let me know-they are OLD stash). Then I dithered about the photo, knew I had some eagle pictures somewhere. Eagles have attitude. I love that! And that QK USA cookie cutter die has been in my stash for awhile - it was a set which name, now escapes me. Imagine that! The edging is a red sharpie. Sharpies smell mmmmm- I didn't inhale.
Had some new peeps jump in and had a little fun and got a little done. Ummm...little would be the KEY word lol!! And if you believe that, well there's the Brooklyn Bridge. LOL!!!! So Holli and I are taking a little breaking and having our own SHOP HOP!! Beware - we're coming to your scrapbooking store sooooooooooooon, as in today, like almost NOW. Bwahahahaaha!!!

I had to ponder this a bit and decided to go back in time when snail mail was the only way to correspond. Because I was a bit chatty on this one (insert eyeroll) I put together a hybrid. Kraft paper which I love and a pop of color for my boy. QK Journaling (which I love and have been overusing lately (but can you really overuse something that cool.)
Journaling: I was 15 when my parents moved us to Florida and I was NOT a happy
camper. I was also incredibly homesick. I missed my friends, I missed my
home, I missed my grandparents.
Letters between my gram and I flew back and forth daily.
When she closed her letters she would sign off with
Which evolved into the 3 B’s for short. And it went it in both directions.
I also used the 3B’s in closing when I wrote to Nick those times he stayed with his dad.
Nick enlisted. And served in Kosovo and Iraq. (He’s currently doing his
third tour now). I began a new closing on the same premise. The 3 S’s.
Shoot to Kill
Show No Mercy
He was/is in harm’s way, and while I knew the 3 B’s were a given, I wanted
to make sure he had a mantra in his head to keep his bad self safe and to
