Rock on... It's Scrapping time!

So, it's been a really scrappy week... so much that my hubby accused me of getting behind on the housework. AHAHAHA! Of course I will chose to scrap before I chose to fold laundry! DUH! My excuse: I was actually watching the Olympics and just scrapbooking on the side, not just scrapbooking. I am so excited track has started! Plus, my August kit (Vegetable Garden) has been totally rockin' my mojo - I've already done 3 pages with it! I'll have to take some pics soon...
Here's some things I have done lately:
The OLYMPICS page... I totally love this page! It's so me... I used very minimal products because I wanted to really focus on the topic. Plus, I didn't have any pictures of my own. I used the web to find the rings and the pictures of Amy (off her website) and Jackie (from wiki)...
Don't forget - if you do a layout and post a link, you will be entered to win the prize pack posted below...
This is my first sketch page for Pink Sketches. The website debuted last Sunday with almost 700 hits! Fabulous!! I did a layout about Steve's trip to the PGA for his birthday. The white rickrack pulls a journalling tag out for his memories. It was an expensive week but it was totally worth it! Because they don't allow cameras on the course during play, the pictures were from the practice rounds (M-Th). Steve did a good job, eh? I went with him on Saturday and we sat on the fairway of the 1st, the green of the 9th (which allowed us to see the tee boxes of 9, 1, and 10), and the green of 5. I could have reached out and patted several players' bottoms on 5 but it would have gotten me ejected, eh? Might have been worth it! On Saturday, we got POURED on (hence the rain clouds on the map over the 5th hole) and ran for the club house but didn't get there - instead we stood under a tall pine tree... (Smart, eh? Judith Gordon Lowe is probably rolling over in her sleep and telling the Girl Scouts to revoke all my badges!) I was cheering for Phil but it was still such a fun experience! I'd love to do it again some time...
I also went to Tracy's 3rd fundraiser crop for her Breast Cancer 3Day walk. I hadn't planned on going because it was going to be difficult to fit in timing-wise but I am glad I did. I got 1 1/2 pg done which I will post when I get a chance. It was fun and successful! Look for information coming out in the next week or two involving my fundraiser crop in October for my sister's 3 Day! I hope you all can come!!
Well, I am off... I have work stuff to do. I should have some more scrappy stuff to post soon so come back soon, y'here?!?
One last note: Congratulations to Carol, the winner of the Pink Sketches RAK! I can't wait to see what you create!

Love the layouts Jana! I was thinking of doing a Michael Phelps layout, but I'm not sure yet. We will have to get together and crop sometime :)
