Lots of Fun Stuff Here

Boss is annoyed at me.  I have been having too much fun.  And I lost track of time.  And so I did not pick the hoppy froggy bloggy thing winner person yesterday like I was supposed to.  But I will today!  After I show you all about the fun and wonderful things that have been going on here. 

The first thing is that there is a challenge over at The ScrapRoom about making a pretty-paper-picture-story page of love.  (If you are a ScrapRoom member, you can see it here!)  This is not that exciting for me because love and mushy stuff is for, well, Boss.  She is the pink wearing ribbon loving chocolate eating lovey mushy person around here.  But since there is this challenge, Boss has a reason to take extra pictures and play with them and hang out with me.  This is really super duper awesomeness.  Because you know what happens when we hang out?  Boss sings Mumford & Sons to me with a happy smiley face and feeds me Cool Ranch Doritos.  Yes, lovey mushy stuff is actually pretty good after all. 

These are the pictures that Boss will turn into a pretty-paper-picture-story page about love.  They are from when Boss gave Big One and Player and Talker cards with brilliant poems in them and also big chocolates.  And I am willing to overlook the silliness of the pixlr-o-matic mess she has made of the pictures because I am too busy snarfing down Cool Ranch Doritos.  This is called "keeping my opinion to myself."

And then soon after that, we had the birthday of Player and the Cousin-of-Player.  This is the boy Cousin-of-Player.  Not the girl Cousin-of-Player.  The girl Cousin-of-Player is actually Cousin-of-Talker.  That is how I can tell them apart.  Well, plus Cousin-of-Player smells delicious and I am sure would be easy to convince to give me a ham or a roast or something.  Cousin-of-Talker just bosses me around a lot and makes me walk here and there and here and there and follow the rules.  I think Cousin-of-Talker must be the "related" word to Boss.  They are very much the same in some things.  Including the color pink and ribbons and lovey mushy stuff.  But here is the birthday of Player and Cousin-of-Player.  Boss thought it was hilarious when some of the flags caught on fire.  She might have been drinking a little at that point.
Boss says when you do not have fantastic cake decorating skills, you can fool everybody by making lots of little flags out of birthday paper and tossing on a bunch of sprinkles and using every candle you have.  And if you catch the cake on fire, then it is super more extra fun!  And the glow of the cake is even better for taking pictures of.
And finally, the best for last!  Well, the best for almost last.  Do not worry, I have not forgotten that there will be a winner in this blog post.  BUT LOOK!!!!  My friend Willow spent the weekend with me!  She is super duper extra lots really really REALLY wonderful.  I love her.  And she loves treats!  Just like me!  Boss gave us lots of treats for looking adorable in this picture.

And finally, the winner of the hoppy froggy bloggy thing.  Everyone was so very much niceness!  I was worried how I was going to pick a winner for the only-slightly-licked Evalicious stamps, but I decided that my tail would tell me.  Because the tail of a dog is a marvelous thing.  It will tell you when you are happy and smiling even if you do not know it.  And here is the winning post that made my tail wag a lot - A LOT! - and made Boss laugh out loud:
Laney  February 11, 2013 at 7:30 PM
Who's a good boy? Who's a good boy?? You are! Yes you are!!
So Laney, I am a very good boy (yes I am!) and I will remind Boss to mail you these delicious Evalicious stamps.  But you will have to send Boss an email at saviostrozny @ to get this prize.

Hopping is for Frogs

So Boss says we are part of a blog hop today and that we have a special love card thing for the "Valentine" word.  And Boss says I must show it to you right now.  RIGHT NOW.  She is saying this quite emphatically.  So here it is:
These are Evalicious tasty things from the Love You Lots bundle.  I think Boss will be giving me this card to taste.  She loves me lots as I am sure you can imagine.
Now that I have done that, I will tell you that I wish Boss would just let me write my own blog posts without all of these ideas she has.  Because I have no idea what this is all about and now I will have to make this blog post make sense which is really not that easy even if you live here and listen to what is going on.

I mean, really.  Does this make sense to you at all?  AT ALL?  No?  I did not think so.

And I do not see any frogs.

Boss is now mentioning the "pepperoni" word.  I am suddenly very much paying attention to that word.  And the other words she is saying.  And now I am suddenly very much understanding what is going on here - which is good for you because Boss says you might win a prize!  In fact, you might win two prizes!  Which is more than you have right now, to be honest.  But that is a little bit mean, so I will move on.

You have probably come here from the most excellent blog of Natalie.  But if you did not, and you got here all by yourself, you should be extra proud of yourself and then go to the Evalicious blog where all the fun stuff and one prize is.  Then you can hop along from blog to blog to blog and come back here. 
click on this link if you have not been here yet!
this is where you are but I am not sure why this name is listed and not mine
this is the blog of awesomeness where you should go next!

And if you are wanting an extra prize, you should be leaving a comment for me here.  I will be picking my favorite one next Saturday on the 16th and sending that person a couple of really tasty Evalicious stamps (although I think frogs taste better).  I only licked them a little and I am sure they are just fine.  Really.  I promise. 

Oh, and Boss says that Evalicious is taking a shipping break between February the 10th and March the 2nd, so if you are really really really wanting some yumminess for yourself, you need to get it now.  RIGHT NOW.

Boss Wants to Marry Project Life Too

Boss says the more she does it the more she loves it.  And the more she loves it, the more pictures she takes.  And the more pictures she takes, the more she does it.  And now I want to talk about giving a mouse a cookie for some strange reason...

So taking pictures and putting them in pockets and making teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages out of them is making Boss very happy.  And the more Boss is happy, the more we are happy.  And the more we are happy, the more pictures Boss takes of us.  Um.  I am thinking about cookies again.

The thing that is making Boss extra happy is that she is taking pictures from before I was around (which would normally be boring) and making them into teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages that are actually making the not-so-nice photos (says Boss! not me!) look good AND take less time and pages to do them.  So Boss has more time to play.  And when Boss has more time to play... I think I will just go find a cookie.

January 2010:  Boss likes how she can take all sorts of photos from the same weekend and put them on one page and make a travel diary thing.  I think this might be lazy as Boss is a big fan of things that let her be lazy.
January 2010:  Hey, it is Mr. Larry!  Mr. Larry loves me.  A lot.  A LOT!  Even after the ham incident he gave me a cookie.  I love him.  He knows where the cookies are.
February 2010:  Awwww, it is Player and he is cute.  CUTE.  I think he was thinking about me even then.  He says he was.  And Boss says that she has the documentation to prove it.  I think that is good.  I may have to Google that phrase later.
February 2010:  I have heard stories of this cat.  He looks tasty.  I heard he was plump and fat and so I am thinking he was probably filled with cookies.  Boss is now giving me the squinty eyeball look.  I am not supposed to taste the cats.  Even if they want to be tasted.  Oh.  Boss is squinting at me harder.  Moving along!
January 2013:  Boss says another thing she likes about taking pictures and putting them into pockets is that she can put in pictures of things that would not normally get to go on a big pretty-paper-picture-story page like ice and soup.  I agree that the ice is stupid.  Soup?  I think it would make a lovely pretty-paper-picture-story page, but Boss is not agreeable on this.
January 2013:  Boss also really really really likes how bad pictures are good to use when making teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages.  These are not bad pictures.  Well.  The one with Player is not a bad picture.  The other ones are perhaps on the questionable side.
January 2013:  THE BESTEST PHOTO EVER!  THAT IS ME!  I am finally in the teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages!  But my head is in a shadow.  I must be speaking to Boss about using the "Photoshop" word to fix this.
January 2013:  More food.  Woman, you are killing me!  I am very hungry now.  And I am pouting.  See how adorable I am when I am pouting?  It makes you want to give me a cookie, yes?
January 2013:  And that is the end of the teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages.  For now.  Boss is making birthday teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages, Christmas teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages, and February teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages in our hang-out room.  I am very much happiness about being with Boss when she makes these teeny pretty-paper-picture-story pages because she is happy.  And I might get a cookie when Boss is happy...

This is most of the stuff Boss used because I do not want to list out things like staples and paperclips and for goodness sakes I think you have some cardstock and alpha sticker things that will be just fine:
     Fancy Pants Love Birds kit from The ScrapRoom
     Studio Calico State Fair kit from The ScrapRoom
     My Minds Eye Gertie kit from The ScrapRoom 
     Glitz Laced With Grace kit from The ScrapRoom
     Jenni Bowlin Magpie kit from The ScrapRoom
     My Minds Eye True Blue kit from The ScrapRoom
     BasicGrey Life of the Party POTM kit, sign up at The ScrapRoom
     BasicGrey Serenade POTM kit, sign up at The ScrapRoom
     Evalicious tasty things:
          Tags:  Love You Lots, So Daily, This & That, Real Life, My Week, School's In
          Badge Buttons:  Love You Lots, Fall Quote, This Way, Real Life, Vintage Labels, This & That, School's In
          Stamps:  Journal Prompts

Actually, based on this list... maybe you should just join The ScrapRoom kit club and buy all the Evalicious goodies there are.  It would be fun and faster than buying one thing at a time. Yes?

Boss Wants to Marry Reveal Day

Because she says she is in love with it.  A lot.  A LOT!  So then Big One tells her to marry it, and then Boss says rude things, and then they both laugh.  My people are cute when they are like that.  Cute, but confusing.

So you know how reveal day works, right?  Boss works on pretty-paper-picture-story pages and cards for The ScrapRoom and pretends they are a big secret.  Then she not-very-secretly shows everyone the pretty-paper-picture-story pages that she made and calls them a "sneak".  She is not being sneaky.  She is showing the pretty-paper-picture-story pages on the internets.  The internets are huge.  HUGE!  And then finally all the pretty-paper-picture-story pages and cards she made are in the Gallery at The ScrapRoom. 

And then I show them to you here, so you can look at them very close and see the details of the pretty-paper-picture-story pages as much as you want.  Plus, you get to read my very intelligent analysis of the pretty-paper-picture-story pages and cards too.  I am adding quite a bit of good information, actually.  I am helpfulness like that.
Bella Blvd Kiss Me:  Boss is secretly not a fan of Bella Blvd paper and does not want anyone to know how much time this layout took to make.  She may have struggled a little because Bella Blvd paper is clean and has nice colors.  I know, right?  This is Boss and her confusingness.  She apparently does not like clean and nice things.  Which maybe explains why she loves Talker and Player.
Boss does love the layers, sewing, and bling.  I think bling is like white chocolate.  Or beer.  Or maybe even ham.  They are all delicious things I am not allowed to have.  Ever.
More layers, sewing, and bling.  Boss is being repetitive with her redundant and duplicate pictures.
Bella Blvd Kiss Me:  Boss says that when you have paper that is not being the "cooperating" word, sometimes it is helpful to cut it into smaller pieces and use just your favorite bits.  And she says something about mixing it with beer?  That makes no sense.  Do the best you can with this advice. 
Boss likes to fuss and cut.  And she did like the little pink heart.  A lot.  A LOT.
For this pretty-paper-picture-story page, Boss used the very loud scary cutter thing that hooks up to her computer and makes very loud scary cutting noises when I am trying to taste paper bits on the floor.  I may have jumped and ran a little when this white paper was being cut.  But I will not say for sure.
This card will be given to Player.  It is a secret.  Do not tell him.
Echo Park Paper Love Story & the February ScrapRoom Sketch:  Boss said the "awwwww" word a lot when she was making this pretty-paper-picture-story page.  I got irritatedness with her because she was not talking to me.  It is unfair.  Even if this pretty-paper-picture-story page is pretty.  Well.  Pretty if you are a girl who likes pink and love and stuff.  That is not me.  I am not a fan.
Another picture of the nauseating cuteness of this pretty-paper-picture-story page.
Echo Park Paper Love Story:  So Boss is totally loving this pretty-paper-picture-story page.  I think she was very much surprised about how good the grey cardstock looks as a background but I am not surprised so much.  I mean, really?  How can anything that is the name "grey" be not the most awesomenest thing on the planet?  Or maybe even in the whole galaxy!
Boss makes paper look like washi tape.  It is not enough that Boss has a terrible amount of washi tape.  No, she must make fake washi tape.
More paper that looks like washi tape.  Boss is being repetitive with her redundant and duplicate pictures.
This card will be given to Talker.  It is a secret.  Do not tell him.
