Roller Girls and Glue Galore

Hey everyone! Well last night's roller derby was soooooo much fun and today is Chris' birthday! Happy birthday honey!!! But let's back up a minute: here's some pictures from last night which was the last match of the 2009 Charlotte Roller Girls season. First of all, Toot L-O-V-E-D it! lol

Here's a pic of me and the birthday boy:

Because Toot was with us we did not sit in the "Suicide Seats" which is sitting on the floor.  Think of being in the front rows at Sea World but instead of getting splashed with water you could get a roller girl to the head.
Here's a group shot of the team and refs after the match:

They all had cool mean names like "Emmylou Harass" and "Ally Capone".  It was a lot of fun to see the girls play and they are currently recruiting.  Hmmmm...Think I'd make it as a Roller Girl???  LOL  In other news, I played along with a new challenge blog: Nerdy Victorious Scrapbookers. Actually, it was their DT call inspiration challenge but I played along anyway, lol.  (Anything "nerdy" is sure to get my undying devotion, lol)

Here's what I did:

Admittedly I do not do a lot of "me" layouts. I probably should but tend to shy away from it for some reason. But the nerd in me was entranced by the NVS collage on their blog and so here it is! :D This is about as "me" as you can get! lol Anything that I adore is here: pink, vintage, video games, kawaii, collage, bling, Mod Podge. lol Here are a couple of close ups:

I hope everyone's week has started off well, have a great Tuesday! :D

Happy Birthday Chris! Look at that Toot...she makes my heart melt!

How fun Maggi, my niece is on a roller derby team her name is "Hurt in a Skirt" and I wanted to join too and be a blocker, my name would be Karyn Blockabitch (Erin Brockovich) unfortunately after one practice session I'm no where tough enough to play with these girls...they kicked my butt and I was on their team! lol

Your layout is did a fantastic job, I LOVE IT!

Love and hugs,

Love your Lo of yourself. You should definitly do more. ANd I am very glad to hear that you didn't sit in the suicide seats with Toot with you:) Happy birthday to your husband!


“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”

love your artwork, always creative.
Happy Birthday to hubby! Has Toot's been to see Santa yet and sit on his ho ho ho knee??
Merry Christmas to all of you.

So funny how roller derby is coming back. There's even an event coming to our little town in Northern Colorado in a week or so!

Jessica Cangiano said...

What a marvelous layout, I too am a huge fan of all things pink and kawaii (and admit to having a tinge geek in me, too), and think this is one of my favourite pages you've created to date.

Tons of hugs, honey!
