Flash Mob gone crazy…

I like to think the flash mob trend started with our Food Court Musical friends(not true really started by an mag editor in 2003, but not as much fun), long time readers of this blog, all two of you, know I am a huge fan of seeming random and many times humorous events occuring in public places and as such have post videos of some of my favorites over the past couple of years. As of Thursday’s Oprah show(I saw some of your rolling your eyes, yes I did, but this one is worth it so get over it) the trend has hit the big time, with 1,000s of people all dancing the same choreographed moves to the Black Eyed Peas. Since this little blog o mine has been tracking the fun for so long now, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to post the ‘main event’ along with some vintage ‘mob’ videos from past posts.

while this date is not quite as cool as 9.9.99 (wonder what I was doing on that day), I thought it was still cool enough to merit a blog post…but what oh what dear friends to blog about, definitely a period of blahness happening around here…totally normal and expected as I come down off the rush of school starting, hard to believe a month has almost come and gone already.

Luckily for you I have a couple more layouts from the September Kraft Girl Kit to share with you. The kit is full of goodies that are perfect for back to school pics, so I thought I’d get into the spirit with a couple of school layouts of my own.

The first is about my typical school day from the admin side…the number of emails, phone calls and paper that crosses my desk…even my beloved water bottle makes an appearance…while I don’t always remember to eat, I do drink a lot of water, a girl has to stay hydrated after all.
This one is a few pics of S at daycare, and if you’re wondering to yourself ‘did she go visit just so she could have pictures for this layout?’ well the answer is absolutely, I have no shame, I’ve taken entire vacations just to have pictures to scrap. I had been meaning to go for months, so this was the perfect motivation…Special thanks to Houston for the alpha border…

Speaking of kraft girls…a shout out to some of the DT girls who’s goodies appeared on the Jillibean Soup bloggie today

Just as yummy is the sale that’s going on at the site right now…buy June, July, August or even the fab September kit and get November or December for only 5 bucks. I’ve been longing for the
November kit full of Scenic Route Sonoma goodness, I might just cave and get June July…oh no they’re both great I can’t decide…

Happy 9s day!

Kraft Girls Kits — Reveal Day!

I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface with this kit, can’t wait to get deeper in throughout the month…

I know if Sienna wasn’t on this page, you might wonder if it was really a Christyn creation…I’m in the midst of a mist addiction (cheesy I know, but I couldn’t resist the word play). Until this layout the mist had been contained to chipboard and flowers, but Houston challenged me to spray a whole layout and so I did, plus a little misted bubble wrap ala Rhonda.

This layout is all about ‘mr. man’s’ visit to the vet after he caused a fight at doggie daycare. The report card is one of 6 that combine to make one super fun piece of paper.

I love so many things about this picture, it needed a special layout. I ‘borrowed’ Rhonda’s idea and made flowers with the text paper from Jenni Bowlin included in this kit.

Finally one with a cute picture of my dad and Sienna ‘driving the boat’, I love the grin on his face.
