Happy Halloween

The top layout is of my daughter, Julia, photo taken before she went to school this morning. The cute little kitty cat is my friend's daughter, Hayley, and the cute little witch is Hayley's big sister, Anna. I kinda cheated on the layouts! Just switched the photos out!

The girls got lots of loot tonight, but it was soooo cold!

It's been months

WOW, what a bad blogger I am. It's been months since I've posted anything. I have been busy with my digital layouts though. Above are some for you to look at. The one right above with the gorgeous browns and blues are from jasbeanie's Kewl Beans Series, Fizzy Fusion Mix. The other layouts are done using Mindy Terasawa's Dreamy Afternoon kit, her Autumn Time kit, and her Whammy Oragami kit!

Smelling the Peonies

Haven't posted in a long time. Here's a couple of digital layouts I just did lastnight of my daughter smelling the Peonies. I just love these photos of her! In the layout with the 3 photos she was getting mad at me because she wanted to go inside and watch, "My name is Earl."

Boy have I neglected my blog. Maybe I shouldn't have one. I was sick for a week in March and then went out to Vegas for a wedding the beginning of April. Man, is Las Vegas growing! I can't believe how much construction is going on there. Haven't been there since 9.11! Julia and her big brother, Eric, just love Las Vegas. I think Eric would like to live there. Julia said, "mom, it's beautiful here, no, it's wonderful." She loved all the cactus, and going to the M&M Factory, the wax museum, Target, and all the other things we did there. She bought a really cute beanie at Claire's Boutique. I'll have to post the photo later. That's all for now!

Nike Pink Shocks

My daughter was so excited when we went to Dillard's and the Nike Shocks were 75% off! Can you believe it? We got this pink pair for $14.95 regular price was $55. Can't beat that price. I ended up getting her two pairs. For this layout I used Manda Bean's and Robin Carlton's Isn't She Lovely kit, available at SweetShoppeDesigns, fonts are Melissa Baxter's Lipgloss and Barcode font. Frame made with cookie cutter tool.

Sand Painting by Tibetan Monks

This sand painting is just amazing. The Tibetan Monks are at the university I work at doing a sand painting. It's really incredible what they are doing. They use an instrument called a chak-purr and it lets a small amount of sand out and they guide it over a table that they have drawn the outline on. The top photo is my daughter with one of the monks. They are so nice and my daughter is quite sad that they will be leaving tomorrow. They have spent many, many hours on this painting and the closing ceremony is tomorrow.

Birthday scraplift

I did the above layout for a birthday scraplift on 2Peas website for Cindy Liebel. She did a gorgeous layout of her and her husband, called "I love this man."

Tonight I took my daughter, Julia, to see a sand painting being done by some Tibetan Monks. It is really quite something to see. I took some photos and will post them on here soon. They were also selling silk purses, CDs, rings, necklaces, t-shirts, all kinds of stuff. The proceeds go towards the monastery. So of course I bought some stuff. I'm going back tomorrow too. It takes them 2 1/2 days to finish the painting.

Too Fast

The weekends just go by too fast! It's a beautiful day today so I'm going to wash the car. It's so filthy with salt and everything else. Julia's been outside playing with the little neighbor girl and of course not wanting to come in.

The layout above is another one that I have done recently. I just love this photo of Jules. She looks so cute in hats. I used Mindy Terasawa's First Blossoms kit available at Sweet Shop Designs, Font is Courier New.

Well, I must get motivated and go wash the car, do more laundry, make spaghetti for dinner and find a little more time to scrap!

Better Today

Jules is better today. She did have strep throat, but we got antibiotics and the doctor said she could go to her Gymnastics and Chinese lessons today!

In the layout above, Julia had on her tutu which I just love. I stood on top of a chair and looked down on her to take this photo. The kit is Robin Carlton's tootsie POP! kit which is available at Sweet Shoppe Designs (, it's just a gorgeous kit full of stuff. Aren't the flowers beautiful? I have done quite a few layouts using this kit.

Ju Bean's sick today

My little Ju Bean is sick today. She complained of a sore throat and headache after we got home from the mall lastnight. I took her temp and it was 99.3 lastnight, but today it's 102.8, so I'll be calling the doctor's office. There seems to be strep throat going around the daycare.

We did find some really good deals at Dillards though. Nike shock sneaks for $14.95! Can you believe that? They were originally $55 and another pair that was originally $60 we got for $19.50! You can't beat that. Julia has been wanting some of the shock ones for a long time, but I told her I wasn't going to spend $50-$60 on sneakers.

This is one of my favorite layouts that I have done recently. Digital scrapping is soooo addictive, but it's something I really love and enjoy doing. And, Julia will have all of these layouts to look ba ck on when she's older. I used the Karma Chameleon kit available at Sweet Shoppe Designs, it's packed with lots and lots of pp and elements and alphas! A huge kit and it's so pretty.
Time for me to start calling the school, the daycare and the doctor's office. Julia's on the couch watching Sponge Bob Square Pants!

My very first blog

Okay, I decided to try a blog. Don't know how long it will last, but I'm going to try it! Above are a couple of layouts that I just finished. The photos are of my daughter, Julia, (she's the taller one) and her best friend, Anna next to her. It was Anna's sixth birthday when I took these photos. Aren't they just the cutest little things? Anyway, I used Mindy Terasawa's Courage and Strength kit available at Sweet Shoppe Designs. Isn't it awesome? The font is Susie's Hand.
