So much to tell...

I have watched some great movies...Let's see I rented...

The Reaping, so very good! Loved it!

Vacancy another good movie. Had a lot of make you jump action in it. The concept was kinda interesting I don't think I've seen a movie yet where they wanted to make a snuff film with the people they were taping. So it was fresh.

You me and dupree was ok. Kinda long and I didn't feel the chemistry between the characters.

Disturbia...I really liked it. I thought it was gonna be really cheese but it wasn't.

Happily Never After...My kids liked it a lot. I thought it was cute.

The new challenge is posted over at scrapmojo...Have u checked it out yet? Here is my take on it.

I wanted to use the bampop for this...But it just wouldn't work. It looked so blah! I still don't really like this one that much. I want to re-do it. Oh well. I love that u can see my cousins roller skates. We were roller queens back in the day lol!

Here are some more layouts I've done...

OLW challenge...

Courtney challenge for sistv...

I have 2 more sittin on my desk I just haven't took a pic yet...

On to some sad/bad news...I got a call from my brother last night...My dad had a heart attack. He had a stroke 2 yrs ago and now a heart attack. He is only 50. I need to go see him today. I need to put all my feelings that i have of him aside and really forgive and forget. I mean I am a pretty forgiving person with time but forgetting is not something i do easily. I usually get burned again so its hard. My dad wasn't around a whole lot when I was a kid. He would always say he would come get me and then not show up. It was heart breaking to a child. He still does those things. He barely knows my kids...Ugh. Anyway like I said get past it.

Hug the ones you luv and don't take your parents for granted. They WONT always be here. It's so easy to get caught up in your own life. I've had to learn this lesson way to many times with friends and family.

I love my mojo girls! They are so talented and inspire me. My right hand girl Melissa has helped me so much just in support alone! I ♥ her.

I have been hanging out over at A million memories the past few days and let me tell you those girls are super! Love that store love that board! Great talent there.

I also have watched a million movies...Let me see if I can remember them all...

Knocked up...it was good but not as funny as I thought it would be...Sometimes things hit reality to me and they are not so funny lol! I think this may have been why...I couldn't get past the whole real life isn't very kind sometimes.

Reign over me...OMG this movie was sooo good...It made me cry. I loved it! I recommend everyone to see this movie.

Bug...STUPID! I hated it. It made me feel like I was going a little nuts with the characters...I use to have these people call me on relay and talk crazy to us...You had to sit and listen to them for so long...It got really annoying and sad. Just like this movie.

Last mimzy...Dang kids movies that make me cry! LOL! It was good too. Kids loved it.

The bridge to tarabithia....Another dang movie that made me cry! The kids were crying i mean it was sooooo SAD. But good.

Messengers...Excellent! I loved it..Im a big horror film fan...

NBR 23...Very good. It was interesting and wracked you brain..I'm sure a great challenge for Jim Carey.

Employee of the Month...Not bad pretty funny. I would watch it again.

Lucky you...Ok total poker movie...I mean really if u love poker u would love this movie...Not much romance..More poker then anything. It was ok.

Hmmm i think that might be it. I plan to rent me some more scary movies....Its hard being the only scary movie fan here lol! I want Vacancy, Reaper, 1408...I know there is more...

Ok on to the layouts...Blogger is not allowing me to upload pics sooo Ill post them later on today.
