enter for blog candy in my next post below!

About my Top 50 Ticker: I may have misstated that in my last post and confused many of you out there. I want my number to go down...the closer it gets to 1 means the closer I get to being the top-viewed scrappy blog. So when I started I was at 109 and today I'm at 98--and that's a good thing. It's kind of a how-low-can-you-go thing. =)

Don't forget to enter below for my blog candy! Normally, I would link that post 'here' but for some reason, when I do that, the comments disappear and that's just the opposite of helpful, isn't it? That's what happens when you write your own html code as a non-expert. Anyway, I'm guessing I'm gonna hit 20,000 by Thursday or so...and I may even give a special little prize to the 20,000th visitor! (You're gonna have to be super aware of the numbers to claim this one!)

I'm organizing the next scrap crop this Friday (place to be determined, but possibly at my own house?) so if you're interested, email me and I'll add you to the list. Just bring a goodie to snack on. Chocolate is always good. And funyuns. Mmmm...funyuns.

Here's what I worked on last night. "Grow" was the theme and the creative suggestion was to use negative space...but I'm not so sure I did that. My negative space has a flower pattern on it. And then I added decorative brads. So I'm not sure if it counts but I like how it looks. Just deal with it!

Also, I've come to the realization that I'm not gonna hit my goal of 200 layouts this year. My orignal goal of 100 I hit in July, so I decided to try and double it. However, since I started this One Little Word album, I've really slowed down on my layouts. I've done 167 so far this year, (and I only count two-pagers as one layout, or I'd be probably right around 200), which means I would need to do 33 in the next 35 days. I really don't think that's possible, and really really not if I keep on doing the journal. Hmm...gonna have to think on that one. It'd be so cool to say I doubled my goal.

PS: I still think my hand might be broken. I drove to Urgent Care a week ago but who knew that they don't even open until 10am...and I just haven't made it a priority to set up an appt with my doc. It was getting slightly better week by week, however, two days ago when we moved the couch out of the living room and into the garage, I think I rehurt it. Ouchie. Would someone just kick me in the butt and get me to the doctor already?

I love your One Little Word layouts, they say so much about you and I love it, and your handwriting...I wish I liked mine or that it was even that neat. I am trying really hard to come to this Friday's crop. So far I don't have any plans it is just up in the air if my hubby will be home in time as this week he is getting overtime and might even have to work on Sat. So is it ok if I let you know on Thursday??
I love your page with those beautiful trees! That is awesome that your on the 100 top blogs! Way to go girl! See your singing, guitar, and piano playing, along with your beautiful layouts are reeling them in! Keep it up girl! Love ya!

I can't believe you have done that many layouts! Wow, you are committed, or perhaps you should be committed? Just kidding! Seriously, your journal is beautiful! Go to the Dr! You don't want to do any serious damage if you let it go. You play the piano silly, those hands are priceless!

I'm gonna have to start having some babies here soon so I can make a scrapping goal that's not just sad. I'm loving that you are moving right up that top scrapper ladder. Oh I can say "oh yea, well Amie _______ is my bossom buddy, so there." :-)

Um can I just say we have an urgent care right here in our little ol' town of Surprise. Do you need a ride? Go to the doctor girl! Your blog looks beautiful from here. I use IE here. The only thing I would say, is you have lots more room on the right side than the left. It doesn't look bad though. I only say that because you asked if is positioned right, and that just depends. Take care. Let me know what the doctor says. ;~)
