Seriously?? Where does the time go??

I always thought my days would be SO LONG and boring as a SAHM. TOTALLY NOT TRUE!! My days/weeks sprout wings and FLY by!! SInce I last posted, there has been a mixer AND I got some GCD news! (Oh and KUTNER from House died-WTH??!!)

First off, Mixer number 13!
The challenge was to use a Dr Seuss book for inspiration and a DR. Seuss quote on your page.
This quote TOTALLY fit my LO of my adorable little nephew READING (I still can't believe he is READING!!)
I used K& Co papers
Pink Paislee scallop paper Trims
Prima Flowers
Rose MOka alphas
Making Memories word strips.
Owl Stamp- Colorbok (Stazon)
Make sure to check MIX it UP! tonight for Challenge 14!! http://mixitupchallenges.blogspot.com/2009/03/mixer-13.html
There is a FABULOUS new prize kit donated from CMK for this round of challenges (CMK kits are DROOL-WORTHY!!! & JAM-PACKED full of scrappy-goodness!http://mixitupchallenges.blogspot.com/2009/04/april-sponsor-commanditaire-pour-le.html

SO I applied for The GCD Design Team and didn't make it BUT I made a spot in their group of 21 testers! And will be receiving product from them to design with! Holy HANNAH! I was FLOORED and THRILLED to see my name on the list!
You can check out the New DT and the announcements on their blog here: http://gcdstudios.blogspot.com/2009/04/our-new-product-testers.html .

OK my TWO favorite shows are HOUSE & LOST.
I watched House Monday night and 'OMG! They killed Kutner!!!' (said in my best South Park STan voice) I EQUALLY Loved/Hated the way they did it. It sucked that they just THREW it out there without warning (fans are in an uproar) BUT BUT BUT THIS really IS the reason I LOVE this show so much! They are CONSTANTLY surprising me with their dry-wit, interesting characters and the cast is STELLAR. SO while I think it is rotten to throw it all out there-BOOM! with no warning, I applaud the writers and cast for a flawlessly executed exit of a very beloved character (and for simutaneously SHOCKING the pants off me.)
RIP, Kutner. Congrats on your new job in the West Wing, Kal Penn :)

Love that Dr. Suess LO! Congrats on being a tester! I'm am SURE you will rock whatever product they send you. And I totally agree with your thoughts on House...I love them for their shock factor and having the guts to kill off a character like that (though I will really miss Kutner!).
