Remember when...

Good morning! The next challenge is up over at Card-a-licious, and the challenge this week is to create a birthday card with 2 journaling tags somewhere on your card. I used Melissa Frances paper, rub ons, remember when journaling sticker, and resin flower, a Making Memories journaling sheet, a butterfly cut from the KI lace paper, ribbon by Offray and a Doodlebug gem. Hope you will come on over and play!A few days ago, I got Kati all dressed up and took her outside for a little photo shoot for fun! I can't believe how big she is getting. I should really do this more often, seeing how I haven't gotten the girls in to a professional photographer in a long, long time. She did really great letting me take her picture, I know my husband always says he doesn't like the posed shots, but if I want to get her eyes, she has to look at me! lol These are a few of my favorites. On the last one, she wasn't posing...just swinging and watching the leaves fall....


And I've been tagged by my friend, Amy, so here goes nothin:

(The rules....link your tagger and list these rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.)

______________________

1. When I was 5, I was bucked off a horse that I was riding on with my dad and landed on a cement thing face first, had 2 black eyes!

2. My dad was/is a home builder, so we moved almost once a year! I went to about 7 different schools. We lived in every house before it sold.

3. I love change, am always changing things around my house (like paint colors..LOL).

4. I am a Gemini (which might explain #3). Love to read my horoscope.

5. I am a total girly girl...as you can probably tell by my scrappy work...when I was little and all the cousins would visit the farm where my grandma and grandpa lived, they would all go outside and jump the hay bales, and I was content to stay inside with grandma and paint our nails together. ha

6. I am very shy in real life. I have overcome it a little bit, but yes, still shy! I wish I could be loud and obnoxious sometimes, but it's just not me.

7. I taught elementary school on the Indian Reservation in South Dakota. What an experience that was! I will never forget it as long as I live. My classroom was K-2, a multi-age classroom.

ok now i will pick 7 scrappy peeps to send this to...how about: Rae, Cindy, Melonie, Davinie, Dena, Roree, and Nicole.

Hey Sweetness! I knew you were a teacher but I didnt know that you taught on a reservation! That is really cool. I love your lil tidbits about yourself. It is always so fun to get to know your friends better :)

What a great post, Dani! Not only do we get to drool over your wonderful card, but we get entertained by those gorgeous pics of Kati and your tagging game answers. I've really been enjoying reading everyone's random facts lately. Yours are wonderful. I can totally relate to the shy one.....I am really, really shy in real life, too.
