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.

Design Team Call
Open December 10th to December 28th.

Announcement will be made on January 1st, 2010

Do you have a New Years goal of making a design team…then we have the perfect one for you! Scrapbook Challenges is looking for some talented scrapbookers to help out with posting challenges and completing layouts based on sketches. We have 4 spots open.

• DT members will sign up to do QOTD’s and Featured Layouts.

What DT members will get:
• The ability to state a design team for your scrapbook resume.

Please send an email to with “Design Team” in the subject line. Please share the following:
• A LO that is your favorite that you did.
