16 days since my LAST post...WOW

Okay I am focusing on getting back to center, I guess that is what I'll call it!  Too many distractions keep me going in scattered directions...like the ScrapFest competition!!!! and Paint Party Friday!!!

 Our team of five had one hour to run thru the scrapyard (only 2 members at a time in the yard).  We tagged in and out grabbing what we think we could use to create our design.  You can collect 500 lbs of scrap - so our bin was filled with what we thought would be enough to do the job - we signaled done and went to the scales.  You could not exceed 860 - the bin weighing 360...we hit it right on the nose!!!  Screams of excitement roared from the five of us and the other teams were like "what is going on". 
                                                     You could tell this was our first year to compete as we were like little    kids at the waterpark!!!  Our welders,
structural gods as our leader likes to call them, had to go back to work - Stacy (our leader) and myself hauled the "junk" back to our house to unload!  We have until next Friday June 24th to complete the mission!!! I will share some of the process but can't show much until the unveiling in Lansing's Old Town.  18 teams... we are pumped and my new mantra...
Mission "IS"-possible is sooooooooo fitting for this adventure.


So, this is my piece for Paint Party Friday!  Our sign I did for the yard as we work!  People are doing slow drive by's trying to get a glimpse of what's going on!  Tonight the videographer for the event is stopping into video and interview!!!  I hope you follow along this next few days...I will unveil the completed piece next Friday here at Paint Party Friday but in the meantime will be posting...promise!  Thanks to Kristin and Eva for hosting such great fun!


June 24th and 25th...we are in it to win it! -or just to have a great time!!!
