I realize that I am the worst blogger in history!! I haven’t updated this blog all month!!  Here’s the rundown….

 Christmas was awesome!! The girls loved all the presents that Santa brought!! Rachael got a rockin Bratz sewing machine, I can’t wait to get started with it. Rebecca got an amazing Playmobil Farm! There is a zillion pieces to it and she absolutely loves it.  Tons of animals, people and farm equipment. Highly recommended!! I got some new jammies, a sweater with earrings and a necklace and some awesome new Dave Matthews tunes! Some other goodies too that I can’t remember right now LOL

 Well, I’ve been working hard on DT stuff for the past couple of weeks.  I’m loving being a part of two great teams.  I’m really going to hate when they come to an end!!

 Will update tomorrow with some recent stuff I did for Paws and SBCH.  Happy New Years!!


Technically its Thursday….

Well it’s 4:10am and here I am.  Unable to sleep and surfing the net.  We got a new computer this week and there’s one thing I hate – I can’t remember ALL of the sites that I visit on a regular basis.  I am just so used to using the drop-down list and choosing my regulars….I feel lost, I know I’m forgetting to visit a site that I go to frequently. Does this ever happen to you??

There are two great GDT contests underway, one at Scrapbookers Club House and one at Paws On Scrapbooking.  Be sure to drop by and give it a try!

I’m off today!  I’m going to be the “Secret Reader” at Rachael’s school this afternoon.   Basically I show up with some book and treats and read a few stories to the kids. The catch is that no one knows I’m coming.  Its really kind of a cool idea.  Rachael will be so surprised to see me!  This is going to be lots of fun! I’m hoping to get one of those pull-apart cupcake cakes for the kids, if I can’t get one I’ll bring some fruit and veggies. I’m actually kind of nervous!  Hee hee!

I’m counting the days down until Sunday, Kim and Laura and I are going scrapbooking for the entire day!! I have a few little projects to finish up and want to get some more cards made. I also have a gift for Rachael’s teacher to make and a few things for my “Secret Santa” at work. I may only get one layout done but I know I’m going to get alot accomplished!

My uncle Ross is in the hospital in Halifax.  For the past few days he’s been having headaches and alot of pain and vomiting.  After a few trips to the ER they finally did a CT Scan and diagnosed him with an Aneurysm.  Its bleeding a little so they sent him from Sydney to Halifax by ambulance for surgery.  Last update was that he was there and still waiting to see the surgeon.  I know he’ll be fine, I hope he’s home before Christmas, this will be their first Christmas in Cape Breton in many many years.  They retired here in August after living in Vancouver forever!

Well I think that’s enough babbling, I can’t think of anything else of any value and I really should try to get back to sleep! After all, who wants to see a secret reader with bags under their eyes!! G’night all!

The weekend is here!

Well it’s finally the weekend again! I’m looking forward to relaxing and taking it easy. Rachael and I are going skating today and then off to the mall to look for shoes. Her Christmas Concert is Tuesday night and she’s in need of some “high heels” she tells me!

I’ve been working on some Christmas cards the last couple of nights. I did a really cute card last night and I’ll be posting a step by step today on Scrapbookers Club House today! This is my first challenge as part of the Design Team! I’m looking forward to working with such talented ladies!! We got a sneak peek at our first DT kit and its YuMmY! I can’t wait to get to work!!

Here is a layout that I did recently using a Hambly transparency as the background. I love the look of the transparent background. I’ve even ordered a few transparencies so I can do it again!! Have a great weekend!!

Hump Day!

Super Saturday!

Well today was the annual Christmas Parade.  We all bundled up and got ready to go.  We got there about 1/2 hour before the parade began. The girls had a quick snack and watched a movie while we waited.  When the parade was in sight we got out of the van and boy was it cold out!! We were all frozen!!  About half way through the extra long parade Rebecca wanted to get back in the van.  That was one request that I was happy to fulfill.  We hopped in the van and watched the rest of the parade.  After that it was groceries and then the 6th Sydney Brownies sang Christmas carols for the senior at The Cove Guest Home.  The girls did an amazing job! I’m so proud of them, they are such a well behaved group of girls, sometimes it amazes me!


I have been invited to be a member of the Dec – March design team for Scrapbookers Clubhouse .  I’m so excited to be working with such an amazing team. Sunnygirl (Caroline) was a guest DT member at Paws on Scrapbooking . Her work is amazing.  Also joining the team is Ali who is also from Nova Scotia! She lives about 10 minutes from The Oaklawn Farm Zoo! My kids new favorite place! I can’t wait to go back there next summer!! And the fourth new member is Jennifer who also does the most amazing work and she is loads of fun on the board! We are lucky to join Nicole and Noella on the DT.  I’m really looking forward to getting to know everyone and working with such talented girls!! I’m still in shock!!  :)

Welcome to my blog! I’ve decided to try my hand at the world of blogging. Please bear with me while I learn the ropes and work out all of the kinks! I’ve decided that I’ll devote this little blog to scrapbooking and everyday life.

Happy scrapping! I’ll be back a little later when I figure this thing out!! LOL
