5 on Friday, Winners and Snow

I woke up this morning expecting the heavy snow the weather liars had been yammering about all week, but what do I see? Snow, to be sure. Coming down at a rate to produce the 6-12" they were calling for? Hardly. It's not even the wet, heavy, spring-weight snow they warned about. Good luck making a snowball kids. Do I sound bummed? I kinda am, in the sick, demented, I-want-storm-way. I do have to go out in it later, so I guess it's for the best, but still. . . . I'm still finding glitter and silly string as I clean - thanks leprechauns, you little weasles. Even the chocolate they left behind doesn't help when the annoyance of finding yet another stream of silly string stuck to something strikes. You can see the damage wrought this past St. Patrick's Day. It's hard to get the full affect by looking at the pictures but it's not the kind of thing a close up shows off well, either.

So there are winners from last week - and hopefully plenty of busy-bees working on the challenges this week. All are due Saturday evening to be eligible for Treats. So here's to my troopers last week; good job ladies! has selected Deanna as the winner for the week. Deanna, you'll be getting something in the mail by the end of the month. Friday - end of the week, end of Spring Break, end of sunny and 70. I guess the snow will keep us from our season opener soccer game for our 9 y.o. Can't say I'm all that upset. Love, seriously love watching all my kids play, but the schedules are about to get insane with two soccer players and a volleyball player - their practice schedules and game schedules are about to collide, and, really, when are collisions ever pretty? So, I'm hoping tonight to escape into some cropping at home - I tried to get into one of the three crops the Archiver's near me is hosting this weekend, but they're full up. So me cropping at home is sort of a coin toss, I want to, but what will I see as more important to do. We'll see. So in case you're looking to enjoy some peaceful cropping time this weekend, here's your 5 on Friday ingredients:

  • 1 sheet neutral cardstock - white, black, kraft
  • 1 sheet bright, springy shades of patterned paper
  • 1 set of stitches - pen & ink, rub-ons or the real thing
  • 1 frame
  • 1 set of buttons - at least 6

Other than title and journaling, the above are all that can be used on a layout. If you can make it into a two pager, given the ingredients, I'll toss your name it twice.

Hopefully, those of you in the upper northeast are drying out, those under a blanket of snow and cold are warm and those enjoying warm weather . . . well, ya'll are on your own. :D

Happy Friday!
