I did some scrappin this weekend!

Well, I got to some scrappin this weekend thanks to the MB and SueGiddens, she posted these great cards with different layouts on them so I did a couple of them. You can see more about that here

This one is my DD when she was born, I think this is the final pictures I have of her in the hospital. No Cricut on this one, the primas are from Cafe Prima.

Here is my oldest DS, I brought him to Sears for his 6 year pictures/1st grade pictures because I hate the way the school ones turn out. I used Locker Talk for the "1st grade" and the Gradeschool stack for paper. The border around the picture is a border from Sears.

This is the other pose I choose from the Sears Pictures. No cricut here either. I used the Fall stack for the paper. Just basic, not too fancy, but sometimes that's nice too.

Thanks for looking! Feel free to leave comments and don't forget to sign my guestbook at the bottom if you haven't already!

Never Ending Card

This is my first time posting a video so I hope this works! This is my take on the Never Ending Card. It is my first time making one so I just used simple white cardstock and some old Christmas Stickers I had. Now that I know how to do it, I look forward to making more and jazzing them up a little bit! Thanks for looking! OH, and yes, that is my DD Alyssa sitting in her bumbo in the backround, she just LOVES to sit there with me and watch me scrap!

Tech Support


Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 ;uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as
· Romance 9.5 and
· Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as

· NBA 5.0,
· NFL 3.0 and
· Golf Clubs 4.1..

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

· Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?




First, keep in mind,
· Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while
· Husband 1.0 is an operating system.
Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6..2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.
· If that application works as designed, Husband 1..0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2..0 and Flowers 3.5

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1.
· Please note that Beer 6. 1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 < FONT> (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0-program These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend
· Cooking 3.0 and
· Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Waterfall Card

This is my first attempt to the waterfall card, I had lots of fun making this! I used the directions off of youtube very super easy! she explains everything and the nice thing is you can pause it as needed. The "Happy Halloween" paper is from last years DCWV Fall Stack. The spider and pumpkin stamps I just got today from the dollar spot bins at Target, I don't have any fancy colored pencils or pens so I used my son's good old crayola markers and they worked out great! The brads are also from the dollar spot at Target. When you open the card, there is a stamp inside that just says "Happy Haloween" I didn't take a pic of that, but it sure turned out cute! I can't wait to experement more with all the fun cards people are coming up with!

Cold season is here!

Well, the last 3 nights Alyssa has kept me up pretty much all night crabby and wants to be held, she was running a slight fever yesterday. Grampa was here today to watch her and Devin and he got her to sleep and she's been slepping now for 3 hours, which is well needed for her. Devin was running a temp yesterday too, he's been doing much better. Jade started caughing a few days ago and now today, he's all stuffy and sounds horrible. It's rainy and icky here today which doesn't help with anyone's mood. Shane and I have been feeling fine, just tired from having Alyssa keep us up all night. I got her 6 month pictures done the other day at sears, they turned out OK, this was the day before she was showing that she wasn't feeling well, so I'm guessing she didn't feel well that day either because she was not smiling for anything. I'm hoping to get some scrapping in this weekend.

Alyssa at 5 months

Well, my baby girl is 6 months old already, I've been doing pretty good at keeping up with her scrapbook along with the boys. Here is her 5 month page I just finished up. I've been taking pictures of her every month with that blanket and doll that my grandma made for her. It shows how much she's grown every month compared to the doll.

Devin got his hair cut!

Well, I took Devin to get his 2nd ever hair cut, hoping that it would go a lot better than the first. I went to a different place this time, and they were a lot nicer and more understanding. He did GREAT! he did try to brush her hand away a couple of times, but he did not once cry like the first time, he was so upset he couldn't barley breath by the time we were done.

First Day of 1st Grade!

Here he is in front of his school

Jade and his teacher, Mrs. Daube

On our way!

Well, the day came and went. He was super excited to go see his old friends and meet new friends. We got to go the day before the full first day to meet his teacher and get all his stuff set up at his table. He had a great first day, he wanted me to come in with him which I was able to cause daddy had the day off so he was watching the babies. I got some cute pictures of him walking out to the van and into the school all the way to his classroom. I didn't cry this year, but of course sad to see my baby back in school. We kept Devin busy all day so he wasn't really affected by it, but today might be a different story. It'll take some getting used to for him.

A day of Scrapping

Well yesterday I got an entire day of scrapping in! I actually accomplished quite a bit however, I think I could have gotten more done if I didn't get sucked into Guitar Hero! Anyway, Alyssa wanted to join us, so I set her up in her Bumbo in the middle of the table, she LOVED it!

My future Scrapper!

And here are a few of the pages I got done.

This is the one when Devin started Crawling
