Something new for my resume...

I can now add "Rattlesnake Killer" to it!
Eek! Just the other day as we were walking out to leave my middle son steps away from the house and had to pee (hey we live in the country) and looks down and says "hey mom there's a snake"... sure enough I look down and it looks like a rattler... so I go back to the house and gather my balls (ha!) and know I have to do something about this... so I get the machete and after several deep 'you can do it Kim' breaths I cut it right in half... so yeah I'm an official sssssssssssssnake killah! :)
scared the bejesus out of me I tell ya!! Here is a pic from the next day.... I carried it (with a shovel) and put it on the rock so i could get a good picture of it! lol

and some scrappy stuff....

Now that I am finally feeling better I have been able to dive into the beautiful Noel Mignon "Mill Street" kit, here is a layout I did last night.

Here is my CPS card for the week... we were sponsored by Shimmerz... I had never played with the Shimmerz before but loved the results! (CPS # 138)
Core'dinations cardstock, Jennie Bowlin patterned paper, stickers, journaling card, Jillibean Soup twine, Cornish Heritage Farms stamp, Shimmerz Blingz and Shimmerz, Clearsnap ink, American Crafts brad, EK Success flower punch

My sons football team took home another win tonight... they have only lost one game this season... so far so good!!
I will be busy trying to get more card sets done for this weekends Fall Festival at the church, being sick really set me back.. I'll share more if I get them done!
Thanks for stopping by! :)
