vintage jewelry

A small amount of my great grandmothers and grandmothers jewelry. I love each piece even if some are not perfect. I love wearing them or just sitting wondering when/where every piece came from. The oldest piece is a copper pin with my great grandmothers name engraved. I have no clue when it was made but to me it means a lot to have something she had. Do you have jewelry from any family members ? Do you wear them?

8 first songs

#1 Madonna---Holiday
#2 Finger Eleven --Paralyzer
#3 White Stripes--Icky Thump
#4 Michael Jackson--Billie Jean
#5 Blue October--Into the Ocean
#6 Len--Steal My sunshine
#7 30h!3--Dont trust me
#8 ting tings--shut up and let me go

I am here listening to my ipod and working on three projects( taking turns back and forth).
I thought it would be interesting to see what are the first 8 songs on your ipod when you turn it on. I have a lot of music but I could always listen to new. I love anything ( except for some rap). I love music that makes me want to move or mellows me --anything goes!! Now its your turn do you want to play along? If you said yes, link me up to your list of 8 songs--:D
until later remember to smile because I love you all--xoxo--gina

weekend recap

On Friday we built a tent and watched the Incredible Mr. Limpet. The boys fell asleep inside it. Saturday I watched the movie The Time travelers wife with my dd. I have to say it was a 6 kleenex movie--I am so terrible at movies like that.

I also scrapped the day away on Saturday ( in between making lunch and dinner) but some of you know that--:D

Sunday --we did nothing. I cleaned, cooked and did laundry. I also uploaded my dt layout -after finding out I had done the wrong challenge. I did get the correct one finished.

---What did you do this weekend? until later remember to smile---xoxo gina

You can check out how I used them below. I love the card she made too. LOOK at that flower made of circles--AMAZING!! If you need inspiration on sketches for scrapping or cards please check out her blog. You never know you might even win a little prize after finishing a page. How could you go wrong with that?
