The Giants Win & So Do We :)

I honestly didn't care who won the Super Bowl this year, but my dh was rooting for the Giants.....he likes to go with the underdog :) I came into my scraproom to check my mail (since we had to cancel our Super Bowl party) & Jim started yelling because the Giants scored, but then he started yelling again.....all I thought was maybe they scored again. He ran into my scraproom saying "the Giants won & I won!" At first, I thought he was joking around with me, but nope.....he showed me his football pool sheet & yep, he won......$240.00!!! WooHoo!

I finished this layout last week, but kept forgetting to post it, so here it is.

I used the new Making Memories Chelsea's Place papers from Michaels along with AC Velvet Thickers & felt winter snowflakes, rhinestones, Jolees snowflakes & some Let It Snow ribbon that I've had in my stash forever. Sorry the pictures are so dark.....my scanner doesn't work right now plus we haven't had any sun in a while to take a decent shot of it & the flash would have just glared on the pictures.

Yesterday was the UAW bowling tourney & I thought I'd bowl good in it since the lanes were synthetic. Boy, did I think WRONG :( My first game was decent (177), but it went all down hill from there (155 second game & 135 for the third). I ended up sticking on the approach in the 9th frame of the second game & that just really messed me up for the rest of the day. I gotta stop letting stuff like that get to me! Jim, on the other hand, bowled REALLY good.....his games were 243, 224 & 227 for a 694 series :) We didn't do too bad as a team, but we won't know if we placed for quite a while yet.
Tomorrow, the 4th, is my Dad's 80th birthday. I know it's hard for him to believe that he's lived to see 80, but I knew he would make it :) He just has this spirit about him....a spirit for life! Happy Birthday, Dad.....I wish I could be there with you to celebrate it! But since I can't, I'll be watching a lot of QVC for their scrapbooking shows. I'm going to try my hardest not to buy anything......although.....we-did-just-win-some-money.....hmmm. I hear QVC calling my name ;)

Til next time,
Benita

I didn't watch the super bowl, but I probably would have if I knew that we would win $ for it lol. There's a lot of stuff (scrapbooking, of course) you can buy for $240!

I love your layout. I never thought I would say it but "sometimes" I miss the snow!

Congrats to Jim on winning the football pool. I didn't care who won either but I was happy that the Giants pulled it off. Maybe next year will be my team's year-Go BENGALS (one can hope can't they?)!

Off to watch more QVC...So far, I've only bought one thing.
