i've been tagged!

i was tagged by dear, sweet paula!

1. If you could have £100 (~$206 USD) worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose? i would want paper packs (basic grey, ki, love elsie, etc), or kits (you know how much i love my jenni bowlin kits!)

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons, which would you choose? rubons, i use them quite a bit, and i don't use stamps often at all!

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do? layouts, i am not a card maker!

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both he he he) i want my own room (to be done) -- i would not want the responsibility of owning a business!!

5. And last but not least, what is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style. using my kits!! i am all for coordinating items, so i am a kit user at this point!! i have also been really into mini books :)

I tag:
special k, sue, missy, and mary jo!

happy monday!!

nice day today at work -- the kids were working hard and excited but fairly calm and relaxed -- it was AWESOME!! had a math test and my boy did great :o) i think he even got a 100%, which is what he wants to get! half the 6th graders were on a field trip, so there were only 13 kids in PE which was really interesting, but so relaxing and quiet! so VERY funny answers on a language arts test today, so it was a laugh and a half from the start!

after work i went to do an interview with The Pujols Family Foundation, and now i am working on the paper about the interview -- PFF does WONDERFUL things for the local community with their work with people with Down syndrome and wonderful things for small villages in the Dominican Republic with water purification and medical and dental assistance...i also filled out my volunteer application with them, so within 4 weeks i should hear something!

get a pair of new jeans to stop smelling?

i bought some new jeans this year -- one has a very dark wash, and the distinct odor of singed hair! they have been: washed (tide & clorox), dried (2 bounce sheets), sprayed with febreeze & body splash -- any other ideas?!?
