Scrapfaith Layout

Here is the layout for the scrapfaith site. The topic is how one feels the love of a diety. That challenge goes up tomorrow. I think we are giving prizes now so check it in sidebar------->

I also added in the sidebar a place where you can sign up for an email notification when I post something case anyone is interested =). Have a lovely day.

Hard to believe, but I turned 35 today. That sounds incredibly old for some reason. I guess I don't have a problem admitting it though as I feel like I am at my best...physically, emotionally, career, motherhood, relationships...things have never been better (knock on wood). 35 is if I could only just stay here =).
I had a good birthday. Woke up to a poster in the kitchen that Tonya and Bella made wishing me a happy birthday as well as cookies and an i-tunes gift card. Worked a a dozen roses and a lovely card that made me smile along with them. Being that it was Wednesday, I had a half day off. So I decided to go shopping in honor of my birthday. And shop I did. I decided to stop being cheap for a day (hopefully I won't regret it). I also decided somewhere in the shopping trip that a 35 year old woman shouldn't have a bedroom that looks like a college dormroom and so my remodeling project begins. I bought a few things and am in the thinking stages of buying some more. I'm about to go take some before pictures and hopefully in a week or two will have some afters....we'll see how that goes. I even bought paint this evening after a lovely dinner with my children. I'll leave you with a photo of the girls trying on their dominican spoils and showing me their muscles. I'll have a new layout to show is for the scrapfaith site.

Who do you look like?

Inspired by the great Emilie I too tried to find out the celebrities my family most looks like. It never fails....if someone comes up to me and says "now who do you look like?" I will always hear either one of these two I was not surprised when these two faces popped up. Also popping up on both of these photos was Freddie Prinz Jr...not sure what to think of that one =). Also did the girls....I think Emma is a little too young for it, she didn't pop up with too many options. Anyway, have a lovely day.

I'm back.....

It was, sunny, beautiful. Had an absolutely wonderful time. Didn't take a ton of pictures as I didn't really do anything other than sit on the beach =). More later, have a great day.

Bella's Birthday book

Here is Bella's finished birthday book...nothing exciting at all, but finished, so that is good. I got a little frustrated with the whole board book concept with a set number of pages...kind of decreases the flexibility of the whole the ringed ones better. Anyway...enjoy. Have a lovely day.

don't know much

Hello....just thought I'd drop by and say hi. Don't really have too much to talk about today. Haven't taken any pictures lately. Scrapped a few things this weekend, but nothing I felt was worth the effort of putting on here. I'm working on a little book from Bella's birthday. Not feeling who knows how long it will take to get done. Had strep throat again this past week. I haven't gotten strep since I was very young until this I've had it 4 times in the past few months. Pleasant. Finally feeling better. Gotta get ready for my vacation that I need VERY VERY badly. Going to the Dominican Republic....very very excited. Anyway...will try to post something more exciting later. adios.

My December Album

As promised, my december album. I started out doing the daily december digital thing, but only made it three days. I then went back to the tried and true old fashioned paper scrapping. There is not a page for each day, but this covers the highlights of the month. Hope you all enjoy it!
