i'm stepping out

of my box. i am not a reader. i do not enjoy reading. i feel like i'm a slow reader. sometimes, most of the time, i have to read a sentence twice to understand it. that is why i don't read, it makes me feel dumb! but i'm trying...i saw the trailer for the movie twilight ( thanks jenn ) and after all the hype about these books i decided to try. karen started the first one sunday so that make me even more curious, cause she said she couldn't put it down. so when i was at the store yesterday doing my coupon shopping i saw the first two on sale. so i grabbed them. thinking they would probably just collect dust. but my hubby saw them and got excited cause he is a vampire book- movie freak! so karen gave us the one she just finished and we sat together in the living room last night after the kids went to bed. we read from 9 til after 12! he had to go to bed cause he had to get up for work...but i stayed up til almost 1:30 reading! me reading! i was truly shocked when i looked at the clock. hubby is out of town this week so he took his copy with him. we promised not to spoiled it for each other. but it was really nice to sit with him, even know we hardly said a word. you could hear one of us snicker a couple of times but that was about it.


now on to scrappin stuff! here is ONE of my layouts for STM. i say one cause this song has got me inspired to do two layouts. this one is of my nanny. she recently moved from puerto rico back to the states because of her health. don't know how much longer i will have her in my life, but i'm glad she is here in the states. it is much cheaper to visit philly than it is puerto rico. anywho, here it is...

I'm also getting very intrigued by all the hype about the Twilight series! Great LO for STM! Love the circle die-cut paper and mini pics!

Really cool layout! My problem with Twilight is I need the time. I've got to make some time.

Those books are addictive! I read all 4 in a little over a week and my daughter is almost finished with the last one.

The layout is awesome!
