My collision....

with a HUGE buck last night. I'm ok but the truck and the deer aren't. I feel bad about the whole thing, but I guess stuff like that just happens. I am just so very thankful I was in our big truck and not my car or it would have been a really bad situation. :0)

Did this one...

for a challenge over at HYWWP. The challenge was called "Had to Have You." You had to do a challenge about some product you just HAD to have and not used yet. Mine product was the Prima Sew Cute papers I bought a while back and never used. I could never figure out what to do with them since they didn't really have coordinating printed papers to go with them or anything. Well, I finally used one of the 3 that I have last night and it turned out ok. :0) Thanks for the challenge, I really needed to use that paper. :0)

A little bit...

Yep, a little bit of scrapping done. I got 2 done this afternoon and started another one but got stuck. I am taking it to work with me tomorrow and I am going to try and finish it. :0) One is a little doodle that Chrissy did before Cayden was born. I thought it was cool, so I scrapped it. The second is just a random pic of Cayden.

Oh Boy!!

My little buddy is getting so big. He turned 3 months old last Sunday and he tries to talk, he smiles and giggles and he even tries to sit up by himself. I love him so much and I am so enjoying watching him grow. Cayden is truly a blessing to me and my family. :0)

I found it!

I found my mojo! I don't know where it has been, but it's back a little bit. I just did this layout based on one of my friend Trisha's beautiful sketches. This is a pic of a gorgeous sunset on Waikiki Beach in Hawaii. I have tons of pics from my vacation and I plan on scrapping my favorite pics. This is definately one of my favs. Hopefully my mojo will return back to normal soon so I can get some fall layouts done as well. :0)

I had a wonderful time in Hawaii with my mom and my sister. We had lots of fun, saw beautiful scenery, ate terrific food and shopped til we dropped! I even made new friends along the way. Here are a couple of my favorite pics. I am trying to upload them somewhere and then link them to my blog to share with everyone.

I just turned 39 the other day and thought I would make a layout about how I am proud to still be around to have a 39th birthday and journaled about some things I have learned along the way. :0)

Love these papers....

From Cosmo Cricket! I used the Earth Love Line on this layout and I love them! This is my stepson Bri mowing our grass for the first time on the riding lawnmower. He did a terrific job on the lawn and I was very impressed! :0)

Here's one of

My son Chris and his son Cayden. I am so very proud of Chris for being such a good daddy. He is doing a fabulous job! :0) I LOVE Cayden to pieces, he is so precious!

Bad photos....

but still got these 2 layouts posted. Destiny had my camera earlier and I don't know what she did to it, but the pics are coming out fuzzy/foggy. I will have to check it out and ask her if she did anything to my camera. Grrrr! This is one of my sister and I back in May of this year. I sure wish we lived closer so we could hang out all the time. At least we can spend 15 days together in Hawaii this month. YAY! This was based off of a sketch, but I don't know whose sketch...it was in a fav file of mine. :0) THe other layout is of Cayden's little feet. I just wonder where those itty, bitty feet will take him to one day. I love that little guy so much. THis one was based off of a sketch from 52 sketches in 52 weeks. :0)

Here's a new one..

This is my daughter Destiny dressed as a Glamour DON'T! Oh my goodness. I made the pic black and white due to her mismatched clothing clashing with my pretty papers. :0) She has on hot pink and black checkered tights/skinny jeans, a light pink TUTU, flip flops, and blingy sunglasses. Her shirt matched her pants at least, but she actually went out in public like this. LOL She never ceases to amaze me. I love her to pieces. <3

Cayden Update :0)

Cayden went to the doctor last Monday. He was 3 weeks old last Saturday. He weighs 9 pounds 3 ounces and is 21 inches long now. He gained 2 pounds and growed an inch in 3 weeks. WOWZERS!! They sure don't stay little long, do they?? :0( I love him so much, he is definately my SUNSHINE!

Been a while..

since I have posted, but I have been super busy just living life and spending time with my new grandbaby. :0) This past Sunday, I went to the LSS with my bestie, Cinn, and we attended a small card class. This was our first time doing a class. We made these 3 doggie cards and I think they are the cutest things ever. We learned how to color our stamping with prisma pencils and a technique to blend the colored pencils. I felt like an artist after this card class and I am super excited about my new "skill". Now I see my stamps in a new light. :0) Just wanted to share this with you guys.

Got 2 more

Challenges done for the weekend crop At Have Your Way With Paper. One is for the "he's one hot tamale" challenge about a boy/guy in your life, so I scrapped my grandbaby Cayden. :0) The other is about your favorite products. I love Basic Grey, so I did a layout using the Archaic line. I had fun doing the online crop and want to thank the girls who took the time to post challenges for us. :0)

My first....

layout of my grandbaby, Cayden. I scrapped his ultrasound pics, but this is my first of his cute little face. :0) I was trying to stay away from "baby" papers , so I used Crate Papers Orbit Collection. I think it turned out o.k. I guess.

A new one...

THis is a layout based on a sketch by Trisha, which was inspired by her sister Jenny's layout. IT's the August 1st sketch challenge over at www.haveyourwaywithpaper.com. You should go check out all the fun challenges we have going on over there. :0) This is about how I am a little addicted to Facebook and the games on there. Thanks to Jenny and Trisha for the inspiration.

My 1st Grandbaby

got here today (8-1-09) at 3:09 a.m. He weighed 7 lbs. 4 oz. and is 20 inches long. His name is Cayden Michael Todd Hicks. Todd is after my brother that was killed in a car accident in 2006. I couldn't stop crying when I found out that she named him after my brother. :0) I am in love with Cayden already!

I Love....

Hummingbirds. I had never seen one until last year and it flew up by my face at work. I swatted at it, because I thought it was a wasp or something. When I figured out what it was, I was in LOVE! :0) They are the cutest, prettiest, little, tiny things. Anyways, I have hummingbird feeders at home and at work. I took this photo of one yesterday and another from last year. Just wanted to share with you something else I have a love for besides scrapbooking. (of course I scrapped my hummingbird pic from last year :0)

I am impressing myself getting so many layouts done lately. :0) It's great though because it makes me happy when I scrap. Here is one of a little jack rabbit we found out back. He was a little tiny baby and we bottle fed him kitten milk for 2 days hoping his mom would come back. We finally saw her and set him out back and she came and got him. He looked so pitiful sitting in that grass all by himself because he was so tiny and helpless. Made another quick one of my daughter Destiny primping in the mirror. Seems she has hit that age and now all she does is stay in front of the mirror. LOL :0) That layout is based upon a sketch made by my buddy Trisha. Thanks Trisha!

Guy layouts...

Got 2 layouts done today. One is my boyfriend Brian cooking out and the other is my son Chris at work. The one of Chris with that pitchfork cracks me up. Every time I see that pic of him, I automatically start singing the Green Acres theme song. :0) These layouts were a bit more challenging for me because they are guy layouts. I tried not to use my usual bling, flourishes, flowers or anything girly on these. I was a bit out of my comfort zone. :0)

Friday, June 26, 2009

Another of my daughter Destiny...

I really wish she would slow down. She is growing up so fast on me. I wish she could just stay little forever, but that's not how it goes. I am selfish. LOL :0)

Monday, June 22, 2009

3 new ones.....

Hello! Got 2 layouts done at work today and one done last Thursday. Seems like I should move my scrap room to my work since I get more layouts done there. LoL :0)

Yummo!! :0)

This is a layout I did about the yummy cupcakes my friend Trisha made for us when we went to Texas. Those cupcakes taste as good as they look...YUM!!

Didn't want to say Goodbye :0(

This is a layout I did of some of us girls leaving the hotel in Texas to go back to the airport. It was sad that we had to tell our friends goodbye. We were all crying our hearts out. I love and miss my friends so much!!
