Hi! Come on in and look around!

Welcome to my window on the world. A snapshot of my life and experiences. I'm a photography junkie and a scrapbook addict. I capture it all here, and share my journey down this amazing road called LIFE with you!

Christina Renee and Tangie Baxter and Me

digi credits: HERE

I made this lo for the challenge this week going on at the Loft over at Tangie Baxter Designs. I got really creative with my photos. Plus Christina Renee is having her block party and I had to use this kit Dare 2 Be U Bundle by Cinzia Designs. It even has some quick pages in it for those days you just feel like slapping something together! LOL! The alpha in this kit totally rocks. I adore it! It's so different. And I'm not even on her CT so all this talk is REAL from the HEART! Which I only talk about what I really like anyway cuz I don't believe in being fake. But anyhoo, I hope you will check it out!

My son made me so mad yesterday, I thought I was going to lose my ever-lovin' mind! He has to pay for 1/4 of his insurance every week that he gets paid. He has shorted us, and we catch it and make him pay up or no driving. He has shorted us, gotten caught, paid up, and withdrawn it from the bank. We make him pay up or no driving. This week he paid up money he owed for shorting and then some with no tricks. I was so proud. We thought he learned his lesson. NOPE> He withdrew every last cent. Now his whole paycheck this week has to go to cover 2 weeks of insurance. I guess the car will be parked because we've quit giving him any money at all for gas. We've cut off his lunch money. He gets no allowance. I have no idea what is on his brain when he does this crap. He knows he will get caught and lose the car. He doesn't want to lose the car, but he still does it. Then he's upset he doesn't have the car. Swears he won't do it again and does it again.

Kids! What are we going to do with them?? After deal with my five, I now truly understand why some species eat their young.

Cute layout!

Oh Boy, is that what I have to look forward to when my daughter starts driving?!
Hope you have a Great Day!

Cute layout! Good for you for sticking to your guns There is nothing wrong with making them responsible for themselves because when they get out on things will not be handed to them!

As the mother of a teen boy, I can totally understand your frustration. Where are their heads? LOL Love your layout.

Oh wow... we have the same thing with our 17 year old. He wants and wants, but needs to save. A video game is more important than saving up for his senior trip too! He must think that we're gonna give him the 1K he is gonna need... NOT! With Joe out of work, and me just getting my business started, it ain't gonna happen. These kids have no responsiblity at all!!! (I know, it's our fault LOL ) Awesome looking layouts girlfriend, glad you stopped by, and see you later... {{HUGS}}

Great LO.

I am so glad my 3 are not yet at the driving stage. Sounds like you are just right to stick to the rules though.

Barb said...

AAAARGH, that would be so frustrating!

There's been a lot of interesting research on the teenage brain recently, showing that the areas that control judgment are one of the last areas of the brain to develop.
