They finally got me...

Well I have managed to avoid all the sickness everyone else has had all winter but can say that no longer!  I haven't felt very good all week and haven't posted much, so bear with me. : )  We did finally get a ENT Dr. set up for Caden so maybe they will take out his tonsils and we won't be sick every week.  Wish us luck...

Aside from that, here's a new layout for you!

Card & Add-on Sketch

This is my card I made using Allison's card and add-on sketches from Sketchsupport.  To see the actual sketches and other projects using them, go to sketchsupport and use the quick guide on the right or any of the categories listed at the top of each page.
This is the actual add-on embellishment I made.  It Spins!!

The Best Christmas Gift...

Mason finally got to come home on Christmas day after 8 days in the NICU.  It was the best Christmas present that year!

This tree took FOREVER to punch all those leaves!  But I think it was worth it. :- )

This is a page I made from one of Allison's sketches.

I Love how you make me smile...I never know what I'm going to find with these two.  Weather it's shoes, hats, glasses or whatever else you fashion into your wardrobe, you always seem to get a smile or giggle out of me.  Even when your suppose to be in trouble. ;- )

Useless Info..

Just in case anyone is wondering...I LOVE music.  I added a playlist to this page just because I like to listen while I browse..If that's not the case for you, feel free to turn it off/down or click a different song. : )  (it's toward the bottom right)  I listen to anything and everything as you will see by the songs.  Here's a little useless info about my choices:

The Call..Regina Spector
This one is from the Narnia movies, which I Love too!  I just love the message and emotion behind it.

If I Die The Band Perry
This one is just catchy and reminds me to live for today, I have several friends that have died to young.

I Had The Time Of My Life..Dirty Dancing
Dirty Dancing, need I say more??  it's so corny but I still enjoy this movie. Nobody puts Baby in a corner! Soo wish I could dance...

New Again..Brad Paisley and Sara Evans
If you've listened to this, enough said.  The video on you tube makes me sob every time. Jesus gave so much for us and we should never lose sight of that so here's a great reminder every day.

Love Like Woe..Ready Set
This song just makes me has a great tune and I have to turn it up and sing along.

Right Here Waiting..Richard Marx
An oldie but a goodie...we used to sing this when I was younger and is one of the best love songs ever!! I and a lot of others know it by heart.
I hope to add more soon, but that's it for now...and a bonus layout to view!

They are my reason for smiling....

New layout pics and a winner

First off today I am going to share a few of my pages and then I will announce the giveaway winner at the end.  These are a few of my layouts I wanted to share and as you can see, I don't scrap in order anymore.  I used to but find I enjoy it much more to go with what I feel at that time..and work with pics/papers that I have at that time that work good together.  The first one is of my oldest son...I know, I know, it's pink and girly but when you have all boys, you get creative on ways to use pink,flowers,bling etc! Thankfully my hospital gown was pink and he just had that fresh newborn pink glow...oh how time flies.

Some of these pages look crooked, but trust me..if you know me you know they aren't.  It just the way I had to take some of the pics!  I am known for needing things "straight with the world" as my father says.  : )

I absolutely LOVE these little hat brads..I added them to the squirrel and title block

Last but not least, here's the giveaway winner....Christine Rantz
(Winner randomly picked by outside source)

Contact me by to set up prize info!
Be sure to check back in for more inspiration and giveaways...there may be a blog hop in the distant future and I am already putting together my next giveaway box!!( Yes, I did say box!)

New Adventures

I had the chance to go check out Scrapbook Generations new store today and it is awesome!  I think we were there for hours, checking it all out, shopping and visiting.  They had a bunch of new things and I can't wait to see the finished project.  I also received my challenge kit today for next month and I'm nervous and excited about it.  We will just have to wait and see..  I have so many layouts to post pics of but just have to find time to take all the pics  = )  Maybe tomorrow (wink wink...there may also be a giveaway this week to so watch for that!)

I hope everyone has a GREAT New Year and what a better way than to kick it off than to go check out Sketchsupport!

Aside from several new opportunities ahead of me, I am excited to start a new year because I have been blessed with a great, supportive family and two beautiful children that keep me grounded.  I pray we can all make ourselves healthier and really enjoy this year together!  Have a good one!
