Hello blog land, how you all doing today? Here in Georgia, we have had a really nasty weekend. Its been gloomy and rainy Sunday filled with windy, cold chilled air. Doesn't make for a fun shopping day or even a nice dinner. So you ask what have we done all day......Blake played with Thomas and his many feet of track, and of course I played with my pretty papers.

This is my crazy little niece Bailey. She can really be a handful at times, but she is also very loving at others. She started Kindergarten this year and I can already see a huge difference in her. This is her first school picture. This is what I came up with. A simple layered page lightly embellished with Butterflies, bc I can see her becoming a little butterfly herself.

I shall get back to being lazy and I have to think about dinner plans. I really wanted to go to Canyons or Five Guys tonight, but I dont think I want to fight the weather to do so. Also wanted to stop by HD and pick up some twine but I guess that will have to wait also. Happy Monday to all.

Come July

I'm so tired, nauseous (but not sick yet), and hungry. Oh my!!! If this cycle continues, I will be big as a whale by July. So far so good with this little peanut.

Therefore, this was the only LO I was able to finish this week. I love the color in the My Little Shoebox papers. They are so pretty.

I wanted to let everyone know about this site. Lots of fun. Scrapbook Challenges

short and sweet

What a fun week, this has been.
Work has been extremely easy,
and even somewhat fun.

I know these are really bad photos, but
here is my two latest pages.

Can you believe it? I finally used this
Doodlebug paper. I've had it soooo long,
and the star lace too. I'm not usually a
big holiday page fan, but I think this may be
my favorite yet.

Look at my little dudes pictures. He did so good.
He posed himself, and was off the table
in about 2 minutes. I was so proud of him.
I can't believe how big he looks in this outfit
I'll say it again Green is a great color for him.

These other kiddos here are his cousins.
Jaylin 8, Bailey 6, Brennon 3 and Blake is 2.

santa, halloween, Nikki, new car much more

Hello dear friends......

Blake and I happened to be at the mall on Friday when Santa arrived from the North Pole. It was really cute, I didn't have my camera to snap a pic. His reindeer landed around back because it was safer that way. They pulled him around the parking lot, all the way upfront to the main entrance, where everyone was waiting for Santa. Blake was in totl awe and amazment. I have been telling him about Santa and showing him photos. He still really didn't understand, but he knew it was special. We didn't stay for photos bc my preggo sister was with us. Oh yeah, I'm going to be a aunt. I can't wait. I'm so excited. It's a boy, due March 1st.

This is what we got at the mall for Blake. He looks so cuuuuute. I can't believe how big he looks in this outfit. I love it. Green red, and Orange looks so good on this child. You can find it at the childrens place, if your interested. Their jeans fit so good on tall but skinny little dudes.

My dear friend Katrina, sent me a happy package in mail. How exciting right, we all love snail mail especially when it arrives on the top of the huge stack of bills. Inside, I find the Nikki Sivils papers. They are so fun to work with, and to my surprise very verstile also. How clever was Nikkie to include the sheet of cut outs. I really love that. Genius, I say pure genius.

Here is my very first creation with Nikki Sivils products. I will be posting more. Look out.

Halloween was fun. Blake had a nice time. It was nasty out, as the night was filled with a slight mist of rain all evening.

this is Blake watching it rain early afternoon

We took the umbrella and took B to about 10-12 houses. He still managed to get a half bucket of candy. Not so bad for a rainy Halloween. We didn't really get any good pictures but here they are. I can't wait until next year, when he can choose his own costume.

Oh and for those or you who are not on facebook, I finally found new car. yeah! I ended up getting the G6. Its red and fully loaded to the max. I've never had a loaded car before, so I'm loving all the bells and whistles, and the covertible LOVING IT.

Have you ladies seen this perfume? I must have this. (Josh its on my christmas list, now I just need to trick you into reading my blog) Seriously girls, this smells so sexy, fresh, young, confident.
