The game is coming to a close!

Texas Hold'em Poker week is almost over at Sisterhood of Scrap. What a fun game they came up with! By the end of this post I will have completed all the challenges and I think I will end with a pretty good hand.

I finally got around to doing Thursday's challenge tonight. Earlier today DD#1 took DD#2 out to play in the snow from our first snowfall of the year and she took some great pictures while outside. I knew I wanted to use them. I was thinking I was going to do a paper layout but just before starting in on it I was surfing some scrappin' blogs and I got bit by the digi bug again so I decided to go digi with this one. All the elements, except for the red matte behind the one picture, are from Selena's A Formal Affair, though I did recolor all elements except the paper.

I don't think I really need the card for Friday's challenge but I'm going to do it anyway. My mom is crazy. She loves to have fun and is known for all the fun she creates and enjoys. This halloween was no exception. She, and a friend that shall remain nameless for the time being anyway, decided to dress up and go knocking on the doors of their friends. I have many pictures of Mom dressed up ready to go out and have some fun with her friends over the years. She has had a great collection of different masks, teeth, wigs, glasses, outfits, etc. Her dressing up and going out is not confined to Halloween - oh no, Mom dresses up like this all throughout the year. You never know when or where she's going to show up in costume. She has many stories about her dressup times. Maybe some day I'll share some of them. For now, I'm going to leave it at that and share with you the picture she sent me of her and her friend this halloween. Mom is the one with the lovely green face. Love you Mom! :)

There, I've completed all the challenges and I'm feeling pretty confident about my hand, but who knows. We'll find out how I made out tomorrow when everyone lays their cards on the table.

Thanks, Sisterhood of Scrap girls, for a super fun game!
