Every day is a New Beginning

I am starting to look at each new day as a new beginning instead of just another day. It can be the start of something wonderful, or it can be just another ordinary day, it is up to me to make it what I want it to be. I had to take another line because I just couldn't face the mornings LOL I am not used to getting up in the mornings. I am a night person who rarely went to bed before 5 or 6 in the morning and then got up around noon. Now I have to be at work by 10.. that's stretching it for me. So it's an all new adventure. I am telling my customers that I have turned over a new leaf because I wanted to see if they looked different in the mornings.

Mornings are also much busier at the store, also a lot more propane. Drat it was cold pumping propane today in that pouring rain! However, I can't really complain as it was the first time I think this summer that I had to do that and we really do need the rain. I had something really really weird happen at work today, I have never seen it happen before and we still don't know what caused it. A customer came in and pumped $58 worth of gas or at least that is what the pump and the console said she did, however when she got in her car and started it, it still showed on empty... in other words, she hadn't pumped any gas at all. The boss went out to check it out and he pumped another $42 worth of gas in her car and it was still empty. So, he went and pumped $30 into his van and it worked okay. So, he tried with her car again, this time pumping another $50 worth, this time it actually worked and filled her car. As I said, we have no idea what the heck was going on with the pump and it didn't happen again.

I have managed to sneak in a couple of challenges after work.
The first one was for a challenge at ScrapDango. We had several colour combo choices and we were to use 12 and 12 only items on our layout. I used the Chocolate Chip and Milk colour scheme.
Three colours of cardstock, two patterns of paper, two colours of stitching, one photo, One font(for the title, bling flourish, and one flower with center.

This next one was also for a challenge at ScrapDango. This one required:At least 2 different fonts in your title
One of these forms of writing seen on your page (Book paper, patterned paper with writing on it, script paper or stamps)
Your journaling needs to be either a 'Once upon a time' story or a letter to the person scrapped. For Extra Credit:Include a quote on your page
Use lined paper

I went with the Once upon a Time story.

This one I did for a challenge at WeScrap. This one was "All the Glitters" and we had to use glitter on our layout and use either the layout provided or one of the layouts from the gallery. I choose a layout by Ally that had caught my attention in the gallery (her work is awesome). Believe me when I tell you that there is lots of glitter on the layout, there is also lots all over me and my scrap room!
