12 Days of Christmas - Scrap Orchard Style....

Our gifts to you.... 12 days of sales, promotions and freebees!! Mark your calendars!

More to follow...

Seriously? What is this world coming to?? LOL!

Ok, so I know that it's WordArt Wednesday and you all just came here for Bethany's Kick-Butt WordArt, but I had to share a funny store... it's been tooooo long right?

So Ethan, my 8 year old, will be turning 9 soon (mid-January) and so we've been talking about what we can do for his party this year... we try to do birthday's kind of "big" but our options were pretty limited in Hawaii as to where we could go... so his friends have brought up things like Laser Tag and Rock Climbing (both PERFECT for Ethan) but yesterday he came to me and told me that he had his party all planned... Here was our conversation:

Ethan: "Hey Mom! I've got it all figured out!"

Me: "Oh yeah? What have you got all figured out buddy?"

Ethan: "My party!!"

Me: "Yay! What's the plan?"

Ethan: "Well... first the limo will pick me and the guys up at school"


Ethan: "Then we'll come home, play Guitar Hero, watch movies, eat pizza, play foosball and open presents - Oh! And then for the after party...."

Me: Shocked out of my stunned silence by the words AFTER PARTY coming out of my 8 year old's mouth bursts out in laughter and have a long talk about the possiblility that he may have been sitting with his sisters for too long watching MTV... Seriously? An AFTER PARTY??? LOL!
What happened to to days of pinatas and pin the tail on the donkey????


Ok...now what you really came here for! :) Bethany's WordArt Freebie for the week! Click to download!

Happy Turkey Day - Eat, Drink and Shop for ony $1.00!!

So Kami, Mel and I decided that our FABULOUS design team deserved the weekend off! No Fresh Fruit Friday this week! But WAIT... before you get TOO sad (he he he) check out the INCREDIBLE DEALS that you can find in our little Orchard FARMER'S MARKET!

With over 20 pages, filled with hundreds of KITS, TEMPLATES, WORD ART, ELEMENT and PAPER PACKS and even COMMERCIAL USE items.. ALL FOR ONLY $1.00!! You won't even miss all of the new goodies that we usually put out every week! LOL (Don't worry... we're cracking the whip for next week! :)

But hurry, we only open the Farmer's Market VERY RARELY and when some of these items are gone... they'll be gone forever!!

So head on over to the Farmer's Market and fill up that hard drive (you know... the one you'll be purchasing on FRIDAY at some crazy good deal that you only had to wait in line for for like 4 hours in the cold??)

Click HERE to head there!!

Happy WordArt Wednesday!

So the dh, dog and kids and I are on the road! For the first time in 7 years we're able to pack up the car, route out the trip, fill up the gas tank and hit the open road (sorry Hawaii... we love and miss you dearly, but the ability to drive home for the holidays isn't always an option! he he he!)

So after driving through a Pennsylvania snow storm (gets your heart pumping!!) and crashing for the night, we're up and off for a bit more driving and then good food, good friends and good football ALLLLL weekend long!

But before we do, I need to get you some FABULOUS WordArt from Bethany don't I? So without further ado... here it is! Click on the image to download! :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
