Scrap Fit and sketch 177

Challenge #10 is up over at ScrapFIT. Its a pretty cool one, and was able to get me scrapping this month. We had to use some Cosmo Cricket products and a Christmas word to complete the Page. I used all CC from the Early bird collection along with the Say it from Prima blings and and thickers. I choose the word FROSTY, and here is how I used it to design the Layout.

I also used the following sketch from Scrapbook Challenges. Sketch #177, I changed it up a little, but not too much. If you would like to play along, please share your work with us here for your chance to win this months fabulous prize. In case you don't know, this month its the December kit form paper Posies, shown below.

They are still time to get in on the current Design team search. Check it out here.

Design Team Call and Baby update

July 17th is my due date. I thought it was kinda cool. Blake was also due on the 17th, yet he made his arrival 5 days early on the 12th of April. Everything was great. The heart rate was a strong 172 and the midwife predicts from that alone, its a girl. I'm not so sure about that one though. I'm pretty sure Blake's heart rate was also above 160, and he is obviously, not a girl. I would love a Haley in our life, but oh she would be so girly and that scares me. So we'll find out in about 12 weeks which it shall be. She put me on Zofran too, but I knew that was coming from my history. I'm glad she sees no reason why I should be high risk this time. I'm grateful for that!

We are finally ready for Christmas at my house. Most of the gifts are bought and now were waiting on the delivery truck to get here so Santa can inspect and wrapped them before he gives them to Blake. I still have a few odds and ins to get but the majority is finished. Our tree this year is real! Wow I know, with red and clear lights and red and gold decorations. OH, and do notice I had help with decorating the tree this year, but I loved the help. I later added and moved things around but I had to get a pic like this. My favorite part was the single huge gold ball on the bottom.

one day at a time

Hello blogland!!!
Sorry for the lack of updates, but I have a feeling it only going to get worse. I may even take a break from blogland. Not sure right now.
This pregnancy is headed in the same direction, as with Blake. I am so sick and tired. Its hard to eat, and I'm starving all the time, yet I can eat without getting sick. My body does not handle pregnancy well. I had to take Zofran with Blake, and its so expensive I hope it does not come to that. I have my first ultrasound on Wednesday to make sure baby bean is okay. I should be around 10-11 weeks then. Good news I think we have settled on a girl name, even though I'm thinking this is another boy. We don't agree on any boy names.

Christmas is right around the corner now. Scary! I finally started shopping today. Santa will be bringing Blake this Fisher Price Cool school system (its on sale right now) and I have no clue what else.

I don't have alot of scrappy to show you.

This page was created from sketch #174 over at Scrapbook Challenges.

Scrapbook Challenges will be holding at DT call in January with easy requirements and tons of inspiration. Check us out of you are interested. Join the group and watch out for the notice.
