Guess What???

I'm an Inspired Scrapper! Yes, it is true! I am so honoured and thrilled to be a part of this all Canadian team of women. If you haven't been to the blog, take a gander by clicking here. I have been a long time admirer of the blog and of the ladies on the team and now I can't believe that I am officially a member! Yeah me! LOL

And after weeks of tests and worry, I can officially say that I do not have osteoporosis! It has been a long 5 years filled with tears, laughter, frustration and more frustration...but words cannot express how happy I am. I am hoping that I truly am on the upswing...there are lots more doctor, physio and lab appointments but for now, small gains are good gains!

Thanks for dropping by!

Sketch #97

I was asked to contribute to Valerie Salmon's Got Sketch blog this week...and I am always so thrilled and honoured with the opportunity.

Here is my take on the sketch which I rotated 90 degrees. This layout is about my super cute neice, Sophie.

Isn't Sophie just the cutest little thing???

Wanna See My Mini Album???

Our last assignment for Black River Designs was to create a mini album. I have been wanting to do a Hopes and Dreams album or an "Advice" album for the girls...for a very long time...and I finally did one with my Maya Road album (which I've had forever!!!!)

Here it is...

There is another 8 more pages but I think you get the idea of the album...I don't want to bore you! LOL

It's Harder Than I Thought

It finally happened...Danielle has lost her first tooth. I don't know who cried more, me or her.

And to rub salt in the wound...I say to Danielle every morning..."Morning Baby Baby" and she said with her hands on her hips..."Mommy...I am not a baby anymore...I lost a tooth!" Eeek!!!

...sniff, sniff...

Scrappy stuff tomorow ...

Missing Summer

With the time change, I have been missing the carefree sunny days of summer. Here is a summery layout I did with the yummy Black River Design papers.

Other supplies: Close to my Heart (cardstock); Basic Grey (chipboard alphas); EK Success flower punch; Spellbinders (circle); Copics multiliner ("stitching"); buttons (unknown source); Fiskars apron lace border punch.

Here is a close up of the flowers too-

It's Been a Very Long Week!!!

Ugh! H1N1 news is everywhere...and everyone every where is sick. This week, we were hit with sickness. We started the beginning of the week with Danielle and Madison having an asthmatic cough. No problem. A bit of rest. Some steroids and we are off to the races! But as the week progressed, things got worse. Danielle got worse and then I caught it. Every time I get sick, I get scared and pray...please let this not be H1N1. While I am not feeling great, I am on the mend. Yippeee!!!

So let me share some pictures that put a smile on my face!

I stitched this ballgown - fairy princess outfit!!! Me? Can you believe it? Let's just say, it wasn't as "simple" as they said it would be but it was all worth it! Look at the smile on her face!

And here Madison and Danielle are on Halloween Day! Madison didn't want a single shot...I guess it is the age...sigh...

I'll be posting some of my latest scrappy stuff later this week! Thanks for dropping by!
