Congratulations Lawrencetown, NS!

The tiny village of Larencetown (pop. 700) has made the top 5 in the CBC Kraft Hockeyville contest! Next stop #1. Check out their story here and please vote. Everyone can vote not just Canadians. By making the top 5 they are guaranteed to win at least $25,000 in rink upgrades and a CBC Hockey Night in Canada broadcast. If they get the votes to be #1 they will win $100,000 in rink upgrades, a CBC Hockey Night in Canada broadcast and and NHL pre-season game played at Acadia University.

And for the Canadians reading this, after you vote for Lawrencetown please head on over to the TSN Bring Home the Cup page here and vote for my son's Middleton Mustangs PeeWee house team. We would both appreciate it!

March Layout Tag

I've actually gotten 3 layouts done this month including this one for the March Layout Tag at KC. It's amazing what I can get done now that hockey season is done. LOL I'm even planning on going to a local all day crop in a couple of weeks.

Bring Home The Cup

I'm going to ask you to vote again. LOL This time it is for my son's team in the Pepsi / Frito Lay 'Bring Home The Cup' contest. Our PeeWee team had 8 skaters and 1 goalie for most of the season after our 2nd goalie was out due to a concussion received at school. We were a small team, but that didn't stop them from winning the majority of their games and coming in 1st at the only tournament we were able to enter this year. These kids have shown a lot of heart and really deserve to win this contest. Not only have they played hard, most games we only had 1 or 2 spare forwards and 1 spare defenceman, but they have also played good clean hockey and shown great sportsmanship. I have been very proud to be their manager this year. Voting is open from March 22nd to April 17th and you can vote once every hour. Here is the link.

I've Been Voting!

For Lawrencetown for CBC Kraft Hockeyville. Between DD and I we have been voting close to 100 times a day. And I have to say I am so impressed with the Lawrencetown for Hockeyville 2010 Facebook page. They have over 1900 members already. Not bad for a tiny village. I even have my family voting in Ontario. Every little bit helps.

I Challenge You...

... to stop collecting scrapbooking products and start using them. I have been cleaning and reorganizing my scrap room and I realized I really need to spend more time creating and less time buying. So, my challenge at Kindred Creations this month is aimed at just that. Come on over and join us.

Here is the layout I did for the challenge. The patterned paper and the shaped paper are the newest items on there at 6-9 months old. Everything else is 1-5 years old including the picture which is from May 2006. LOL


And don't forget to vote for Lawrencetown for the CBC Kraft Hockeyville 2010.

Lawrencetown, NS is a CBC Kraft Hockeyville Finalist

How incredibly cool is it that the tiny community of Lawrencetown is a finalist in CBC Kraft Hockeyville 2010! The kids and I have been voting non-stop since the finalists were announced and we're really hoping they make the top 5. I have to say after watching the top 12 show on Monday that Lawrencetown best embodies the spirit of Kraft Hockeyville. It is a small town rink with a true need for upgrades to bring it into the 21st century. I hope everyone votes and votes often for Lawrencetown. You can do that here at the CBC Kraft Hockeyville site. Also join the Lawrencetown for Hocketville 2010 Facebook group.

I Completely Missed February!

I can't believe I didn't post once in February. It was a crazy busy hockey month. Between my son and daughter's teams we had 4-7 games most weekends. The biggest excitement was my son's PeeWee team winning the Berwick tournament. We only have 9 players including the goalie, so it was pretty amazing.

As usual I only got 1 layout done and it was my layout for February layout tag over at Kindred Creations. This time I did a digital layout.
