long time no post...

Hi all, I have been so busy getting ready for our schools fall party. Plus I was working a lot last week. I have not had much time too play. I wanted to shout a big Thanks out to my bellah sistah Jacquie Peifer. I received a package in the mail today. It was from the kitchen sink. the chick stamps!!! Thank you Jacquie!!

I also received lots and lots of buttons and some copic markers from my great friend Amy Rambo. She put the buttons in a vase and put daisies on the markers so it looked like a bouquet of flowers. very cute. Thanks Amy!!

You guys have made this birthday great!!!

I feel the Christmas season approaching

Hi everyone, what a cold rainy day. I think it rained most of the afternoon, and it is quite chilly out there. makes me want to bake, or make some soup or something.
I made 2 cards tonight, The first one a Bella, but I am unsure of her name. I received her from a RAK on SPS. I am unsure of this card, I like it as far as the idea goes, but the ribbon is not quite right. The sketches of both cards came from an add in Paper Crafts magazine. I like how the second one turned out, I love that stamp. I think I received it from Jacquie, my Bella Sister. You know it is funny how I don't think I would have purchased this stamp, but now that I have colored it in and used it, I LOVE it!! Just reminds me to keep an open mind. Have a great night, hope all is well.

BSC #50 and prezzies from my sistah

Hi all, I have been gone a while it seems. My mother is always the first to remind me that I have not posted for a while. =-)

We had a great weekend. Taylor had a slumber party fri night and I had my scrapbook group. Bradley had a friend over to play, so I think we all had a good time. Sat, we had our last soccer game of the season. Then off to another birthday party. Another slumber party for Taylor. When she finally got home today, we headed off to another bday party, for my nieces and nephews. it was at a local park we had a bonfire and played and climbed (which I will pay for tomorrow I am sure). It was just a really fun time.

Well friday I got home and there were 2 envelopes waiting for me. My bella sistah Jacquie spoiled me again. just look at the goodies I received from her. cards, a new bella to play with, papers and matching embellies, and the second book in the twilight series. I can't wait to get started on it. The last one took me about 2 days, but I was home sick and had lots of time to read. I have to work full time this week, I am not used to doing that, so I am sure I will not have time to do anything. Thanks so much Jacquie, you really made my day!!!

Here is my version of BSC #50. this is paper that Jacquie gave me, and the bella from her also. I used bella dots on the pink pieces. It was a fun card to make.
Well I don't know how much I will be around this week, but I will try to check in. Have a good night and be well.

bellahollic sketch challenge 1 w/o a bella

I bought this paper pack in Kansas city this weekend. I love the color combos, and it came with the rubons too. I used the bellaholics sketch challenge from Sarah at scrampin mama. However I failed to use a Bella, so I will have to do a new one with a Bella and I will post it when i have it ready.

I am home!

It is so fun to go on a trip, and always so good to be home. My friend Amy over at The Scrap addict, (who is giving away some blog candy) went with me to CKC convention in Kansas City this weekend. We had a blast! Now our opinions may differ slightly about the convention, but, in my opinion it was pretty bad. The vendors part was pretty good and they had some really good deals. We did some damage to our pocket books, unless you know our husbands, then we hardly spent anything! We actually left the crop on friday night and went back to our hotel to scrap. Then the next night, we called a local Archivers and went to their scrap mania from 5-11. It is so much more fun than the ckc. Don't get me wrong, we had a great time, but how can you not with someone that cracks you up constantly. Luv ya girl!

I did not get much done because we played and talked so much, but when I get home from work I will post 2 cards that I did. See you later tonight.

Awesome blog candy give away at the scrap addict

My dear, sweet, sarcastic friend Amy at the Scrap Addict, is giving away some blog candy. You must go look on her blog. You can find it here.


These 2 pages I did of my daughter Taylor. We were in Okoboji, IA and she wanted to make the bestest sand castle ever! She worked so hard on it and even put up a sign asking people to please not knock it down. It was so cute, and she was so persistent. She watched out the window all evening, and as soon as she would wake up to see if it were still there.

mixin it up a little

I don't usually post my scrapbook pages, but I am going to change things up a bit. This is a pageI did for a swap last Christmas. It is all CTMH the edges are all distressed, I scored the lined then sanded them in the cranberry card stock. I really like this page, and am waiting for the perfect picture to put on it. I will have to go through my pics and find one.

I have had many people ask about my dog, Ced. We had a call from the vet this morning and he said his blood work looked great. He is feeling good, we think, because he is back to his old self again. Thanks everyone for the well wishes for him. Have a great day and thanks for looking.

Latte Bella and a recipe for cookies

Ahhhh it is Monday. I actually like Mondays because I only work until noon. The kids get out of school at 1:55 on Mondays, so i picked them up and I also picked up Amy's 4 kids and they were hungry. So we made some peanut butter cookies, and some puppy chow. This recipe for the peanut butter cookies is one of the best I have ever tasted, and they are so easy. I found this in our school recipe book. It is...
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
mix it all together, form into balls and flatten, then bake at 350 for about 9 minutes. Thats it. They are great!

I made this card tonight for a friend of mine. Tomorrow is her 33rd birthday.
This is one of those cards that I made and just don't like. Do you ever do that, work really hard and then it just stinks? Oh well what do ya do?? have a great night all! thanks for looking.

Good News

Well we got some real good news today. The Vet called and it looks like Ceddie has a kidney infection. The vet said he still has quality time left, we just need to get him better. his white blood cells were more than triple what they should be. So he is just really sick. He went to the hospital today, and they put him on iv antibiotics, and fluids to flush out the kidneys. He gets to come home at night then back in the morning. for three more days. Then they will draw blood again on Monday. I will tell you though, he is so much better already. My friends Kellie and Amy were over tonight and I bet if they did not know, they could not tell he was sick. He also has a way better shave on his legs than i do. hehe they shaved both of his front legs. I just wanted to share my news, I hope to report good things again tomorrow too. Have a great night!

Poor Doggy

Poor Ceddie, He has been so sick. We took him to the vet today, because he can't keep anything down. he has been moaning constantly. I feel so bad for him. He is getting so old, like 98 in human years, it is not looking good. They took some blood and will call us back tomorrow. I just don't want him to suffer and it is really tearing at my heart. It is hard to keep my eyes dry tonight, and these pics i took at the vet today make him look so pathetic.
