I'm so thrilled! Last night when I got home from work this was waiting for me in my mailbox!

I should explain though that this is the first time I have ever had in mailed to me and the reason for that is because I was published for the FIRST TIME in it! So this is my complimentary copy. ;) This is what I had published. (mines on the bottom of the page)I little closer up! See my name! :)
What a rush! Very cool indead to see my hubby and boys in a magazine! The other cool thing is they did include the mention of my dad because he made the wood plaque, so my dad gets published too! heehee! Anywho, I just might have to try my hand at a submission to two again, because the excitement of seeing my name in print is the coolest thing evah! Thanks for putting up with me today! :)

Lastest Project

Happy Friday all! I seems like I don't post scrappy stuff as much as I'd like. Perhaps that is because I seem to have so little time to create stuff to post! Okay enough boo whooing from me, I have had a little time and this is what I have been working on. I've been doing more mini albums lately then anything and when I'm on a project like this I don't work on any single page layouts, not sure why, just me I guess. Anyways, anyone who knows me also knows that my mini albums are far from mini. This one isn't too bad though! It was a day trip we took to Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan. First time really working with Graphic 45 stuff, it was perfect for the theme. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

November Kit Studio Calico

So in just 2 weeks I should have this at my front door.

I love the trees, the pear paper and the little Maya Road houses! Oh how I love to get scrappy mail!

So what are your plans this weekend? I went from having a pretty open schedule to one that is jammed packed! How did that happen you ask? Well I just don't know I must have said I was free this weekend out loud or something! LOL So tonight I go to families house to celebrate 2 of my nieces college graduation. Tomorrow that kids have their activities during the day which will keep me hopping since Ken is working overtime. Then Elliott will be going to a sleepover and I will be going out with a friend to see a locate musical. Sunday I'll be going to the Paper Pickle to their Christmas Open house, and then to our old neighbours house (they just moved away 2 weeks ago) for a visit and to pick up Elliott from the sleepover. Phew! see what I mean? And I when easy on the details.

I hope to find a little scrappy time, but we'll see. Happy weekend all!

Look What He Finally Lost, Just in Time For Christmas!

I've been meaning to post this adorable photo of Elliott. He is so proud! Finally after many (if not all his friends) he has lost his 2 front teeth. Funny thing was, he lost one on Monday and the second one the next day at school, I didn't even get the chance to take a photos of just the one tooth missing! And to top it all off the next day was picture day at school. Now is that perfect timing or what!

Halloween Photos

So for Halloween this year Braydn debated as to whether or not he was going to go out trick or treating. These are sad days for momma, as even though I'm not a huge fan of Halloween, I am sadden that my oldest is growing up! In the end I don't think he could resist the idea of not getting any candy, so he resourcefully came up with a costume from things we had around the house. He became...Mr. Bedhead. I think he did a pretty good job of it too. Must be those acting classes! He used my robe, dad's sleep mask (for those awful midnight shifts and needing to sleep during the daytime) put bags under his eyes and did a real number on his hair. Grabed his favourite pj's and pillow and voila! Big yawn, Mr. Bedhead :)
And of course Bumble Bee! Cutest little Bumble Bee I've ever seen! :)
Hope you all had a great Halloween.
