Northeast Region Venturing President!

I am so very proud of Kyla. She has just been awarded the position of Northeast Region Venturing President and will be a member of the Youth Venturing Cabinet. This is one of the highest youth Venturing positions in the country and is a huge honor and responsibility. For those of you who may not know, Venturing is a program within Boy Scouts of America. We are off to San Diego for meetings and her swearing ceremony in May. She's very excited! She will also have to travel to Texas this summer and attend many regional events that she will be invited to. This is the picture that will be on the Venturing website. I'll post a link to the site when it's published.

Rite of Passage

Dennis and I gave Jessy tickets to see her favorite singer for Christmas...Avril Lavigne! The concert is tonite and Kyla was nice enough to take her. I think it's only fitting that the big sister take the little sister to her first concert. That's the way it was in my family. I'm the oldest and I took my youngest sister Christine to her first concert. It was sooo long ago, I think it was a Poison concert. Yikes...flashback! They're there as I type this. I hope they're having a great time. It's moments like these that I hope bond them. Here's pics of them before they left.

Amuse card challenge #37 Lots of Dots

This weeks challenge is to make a card using dots. Last nite I bought some new awesome amuse stamps and I think it came out cute. It was very basic and simple and I didn't use any glitter (shocking!) or ribbon.

The Cover-Up...

I went yesterday to have my old tatoo I got 25 years ago covered-up. What a difference from 25 years ago to today. Back then, you had to be 18 but they never checked ID's. You always wanted to be the first tattoo of the day so you'd be sure to get a clean needle. Girls getting tattoo'd was not very common. This time, I had to show them my license for identification, sign a waiver & get a new needle out of the package just for me! I'm no longer in the minority. Lots of girls get tattoos now. Jeremy was great, I told him what I wanted and gave him a few pic for ideas but he is so artistic that he drew up his own interpretation and it was perfect. It was better than anything else I could think of. His challenge was that he had to completely cover-up my old one. I think he succeeded. I have 2 others that are even older but they're in a place no one will ever need to see...
