Finally!!!! I missed my precious technology!!

Howdy Y'all!! You might be wondering why you haven't heard from me recently. Well, my modem decided it didn't like to work anymore, and so I had to wait for a replacement in the mail...over the long weekend...
Needless to say, I've been having some harsh techno-withdrawls!

I'm just going to post quickly tonight though, because it's way past my bedtime, and I'm doing a 75km bike race tomorrow!!! Please pray that I don't die!! lol I am not sure that I'm going to do the whole thing, but I'm really going to try!! We're doing it in a relay, but I start first, so I'm just going to go until I can't anymore...ya never know, I could get all the way ;)


This layout is of my cute little adorable cowboy Caleb at the Canada Day Parade. So adorable!! I finally got to use my Tim Holtz alphabet die that I bought ages ago!! I looooove that it will cut chipboard!! I can make my own "thickers" now! haha



I'm pretty happy with how this layout turned out, and it was finished really quickly too! I finally just decided that although it is artistic and I really love making great layouts, the main reason I do this is for memory keeping, so I have made myself not overthink layouts anymore and I get them done waaaay faster!! 

I used yet another fabulous sketch from Boys Rule for this layout :)

All of these yummy products I used were from my August Counterfeit Kit.
I'm also entering this into the challenge over at Scrapfit: Workout 75 is "Trendy Twine" I soooo love twine :)
and also into the challenge over at Anything But a Card: Anything goes! (as long as it's not a card! lol)

Well, there you have it ladies and gentlemen! Wish me luck on the Tour de Cariboo!! Pray I am alive tomorrow night!! 

*hugs*
