As I looked into her eyes yesterday I knew it would be the last time I saw her here on earth....she knew it too...she started to tear up....I told her I loved her and kissed her good bye. She has wanted to go "home" since Daddy passed away last year...so now she will be with Daddy once again. While you will be missed greatly here, I am glad to know you aren't in pain anymore. Viya con Dios Mom.

After being gone all weekend we came home to a padded mailer from Jeremy. Enclosed was a CD full of professional photos that he and his companion and group had taken. I couldn't wait to get my hands on them. I kept the layout simple but am happy with the results. It's so hard sometimes cuz I miss him terribly and at the same time I am so proud of him and wouldn't want him anywhere else.

I just finished this yesterday....I know I didn't waste any time scrapping the photos but now that I don't have as many photos to scrap I have to either do old photos or the newest ones that really excite me....you can guess which route I went yesterday. lol I used older Basic Grey paper and a sketch from the current Basic Grey newsletter. Any way....here is my California Snow Dork! I somehow don't think he will be this excited to see snow in a few months.

Jeremy sent home his memory card today so I raced to the computer to see what he had sent....he only sent 4 pictures two of which weren't that great but I just had to laugh.....only a California boy would be standing around in the snow posing for a picture in a tee shirt, shorts, and NO SHOES!!! What a goof ball.....

When I saw the sketch that Stayce used for the last week of the contest over at Scrapbook deals 4u I knew it was perfect for my photos. I had way too much fun playing with this layout. It's all done very tongue in cheek. I made a layout about a tractor and made it all glittery and sexy??? I had more fun playing with my new cricut deep cutting blade and black embossing glitter! I made the glitter letters and the other embellishments on the page. I even used an OLD die cut that was the wrong color...I just used it as a template. These photos are from last year's trip to Utah and the corn maze in Lehi...they were a perfect fit for Kenny Chesney's song "She Thinks my Tractor's Sexy".

And it was so easy! I found this cool Blog layout and it was so pretty I decided to play around and see if I could try something new...and I did! There may be hope for teaching an old dog new tricks yet! Big thanks go to my friend Michelle over at Scraplove for giving me the link for this cool blog design. Thanks so much girlfriend! The only problem was I lost my music and all of my blinkies and such...ok so the old dog has more to learn....lol
Here are a couple of layouts that I have done this past week...all three of them are lifts from amazing artists. Two of you are two of my bestest online buddies...the other lift was from an awesome layout that I saw over on Jenni Bowlin's blog.Thank you so much girls...you inspire me more than you know!
I wish you could see the details on my faith layout better...I used "holographic" embossing powder on the title and it just looks so cool and sparkley IRL

I was so inspired today by the Sept 28th post over at "The Story Matters" blog that I sat down and answered the questions and created this layout....I think I will send the questions to Jeremy and see if he will answer them...it was a good little exercise in not only creativity but thinking as well....guess I used both halves of my brain to come up with this one. :-)
The challenge at the Story Matters is over. I figure anytime you can get your brain thinking is a good thing so I posted a little challenge of my own for the girls over at Scrapbookdeals4u....I hope they will take me up on it.

Ok I maybe a little bit over the top here and maybe I won't ever post 3 posts in one day again BUT..... I was over reading Stacy Julian's blog and I was so impressed with her idea that I had to jump on the band wagon. I so am not into making little books but her idea just was so cool I decided I needed to see if I could do this.....Hey Martha....maybe this will help you slow down a bit? Go and check out her blog and see what I am talking about! It's her October 1st blog post.
I just had to post some of my creations that I made with the kit from scrapbookdeals4u! This kit is amazing! The yummy October Afternoon papers were so fun to play with.
Hey I just found out from Martha....anyone who orders the October kit and mentions my blog gets a free mini kit from Scrapbookdeals4u....so head on over and get yourself this Rockin October kit. www.scrapbookdeals4u.com
