Happy Veteran's Day

Everyone should thank a veteran today. I sent my own personal veteran and his wife (my SIL & daughter) a surprise this week.
Jerry got in the car at 4:30 am and drove to North Carolina (it's a 750 mile drive and he did it in 13 hours) So he could visit with the grandkids and lend a helping hand to Katie and Bernie. They've all been sick and Bernie's been training really hard and Jerry was feeling lonely, so it all works out well. Of course he polished up the TBird convertible for the drive and then drove right into a whole lotta rain! BUT he's still with the kids and I'm sure he will have a great time.

So I thought I would have a few days with not too much to do and I could get a lot of scrapping done...and wouldn't you know...my laptop crrrraaaasssshhhheeeddd.
It just flickered and then died. I saw it coming and had a lot saved on an EHD and I bought a used laptop for a back-up, but then when I tried to use the "back-up" computer, I realized I had to re-install photoshop and all my favorites and I lost all the stuff I had downloaded in the past week and some pictures and well...some stuff I can't even remember.
So now I have a list of things I should do, could do, need to do, have to do....OMG!
But I had already uploaded these three LO's to websites, so I just downloaded them back to my computer. Gotta love the internet.
This one was for a speed scrap at DSDI. I used Bubblescrap Designs Twisted Halloween. (and now I don't have that kit anymore)

And this is another LO I did for a speed scrap at DSDI and I used Bubblescrap Designs Worth the Fall (I don't have this kit anymore either)
And this one is also for a speed scrap at DSDI and I used A Blessed Life from MamaMia and RebeccaPSP (also lost in the crash)

Maybe I can get some of the kits I lost in the crash because Bubblescrap Designs is having her GRAND OPENING SALE at MLAS. Check out some great LO's in her gallery at MLAS.

And here's a freebie from the shop at My Life and Scrap. It was made with Bubblescrap Design's Worth the Fall.

AND remember to thank a veteran today!


  1. BEAUTIFUL Lo's Michelle. I know exactly what you are going through too with the crash! Mine crashed last month and I lost all of the pages that I had done previously to that and my pictures from the month. :(

    Thankfully though I had most of the pictures up SOMEWHERE.

    Thankgoodness that you had most of your things saved too. I know what a huge pain it is! {{{HUGS}}}}
