More scrapping and lots of other stuff!

I have gotten a few digi pages done this week!! Wooohoo go me! Finally getting some scrapping done is sure relieving my stress :)

First off, my cousin Tina finally *finally* got her birthday (August) and Christmas gifts from my mom! I have been so excited for her to get them so I could find out if she liked her birthday gift I made. A memorial somewhat of our grandparents. She loved it!!

All of these are digi pages...
Pics of Jon and Kayden when she was a couple days old. I used the Funny Valentine kit from Pixel Diva Designz

Sammie saying the Pledge of Allegiance for us. It was so sweet!I used Teriann Hanks Liberty kit available at TTS

Jon, posing by the tree in our front yard this past Thanksgiving. We have a tradition of having the grandkids stand by the tree and taking thier pic, so we can see them growing from year to year. I used Mad Scrapper Designs Wendi's World kit also available at TTS. I love this kit!

And finally a page I did for her DD inside joke at TTS. Kacee had a challenge to see how many times we could use the word 'Loverly' and I came across this Loverly word art while looking for digi freebies and HAD to use it! *L* It was screaming Kacee's name! ( I also used Sunfire/A Fairy Tale/TTS; Word Art/Sophia Sarducci blog freebie; /Junianas/Tracy's Wish Add on/TTS; Designs by Krista)

Come read our latest at TTS Newsletter!

I had to post these for Nancy so she can see what Sammie did to her hair! *L* Bella's isn't nearly as bad *giggle* this is the before shot...see how long and nice her hair was...WAS mind you...until she got a sucker stuck in her hair WHILE her Uncle Shaun was babysitting her...and he fell asleep on the couch while Sammie and Jonny were watching a movie.

And now the DAMAGE she did!

OMG Shaun was in a panic when he called us..he siad his sis was gonna KILL him!!
Once Jenny got over her shock and anger *L* She took Sammie to the beauty shop to get it fixed.

Scrappin!! (and sales!!)

I have been scrappin!!! Went to a crop last night and got some pages done! Woohoo!!!

I used Scrapworks...our sponsor at TTS this month for the first 3 pages, the last page is done using Close To My Heart papers

Patricks first ultraspound pics!!!

Got this adorable pic of Jonny and Sammie when they were here for Super Bowl weekend! One of those ahhhhhhhhhh moments, don't ya think?

Jonny and Sammie building a snowman after one of their many Utah snow storms this winter!

Mal and Chelsea down in Ontario CA. We HAD to stop at this sign so we could get thier pic on the way home from the beach. I wonder how many people thought we were nuts as they were driving by! *L*

How about some pretty exciting news if you like scrapping AND sales!!! Check out the new paper store at TTS EVERYTHING is now 35% off EVERYDAY!!!

And I have to leave you with a joke for the day!!

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me and my brother who is four years older than I am. I was maybe 3 and a half years old and had just recovered from an accident in which my arm had been broken among other injuries.

Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news and my brother was playing nearby in the living room when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home. My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch
me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!!'

My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up, then says, 'Did it ever occur to you that the only place that baby can reach to get water is the toilet??'

Another busy week....or I am getting old *L* Ok so I know I am getting old, but time is going by way to quickly!
We had the primary here on Tuesday. I'm bummed because my man didn't win CA. But I am even more bummed that he dropped out of the race this week. :( Yeah I was hoping Romney would too. I really liked his views on a lot of things. I had a lot of hope of him turning this economy around.
Now we get McCain who says we could be in Iraq another 100 yrs and who is so anti gun it's not even funny...check out these links
McCain Lieberman
McCain Lieberman 2
.... obviously I am not anti-gun. Seriously people...if you take all the guns away from the good people the bad guys will still be able to get them. Drugs are illegal yet the druggies can still get them can't they? Thats because if you are into things illegal you still KNOW where to get the things that are illegal!! And even if they couldn't get a gun, do you honestly think thy won't kill, mame, torture, rob, etc with a knife or a sledgehammer or whatever they could get their hands on? If they want to commit a crime taking a gun away won't stop them, it will just leave us good people without a way to defend ourselves!
Then we have Huckleberry who wants to ban smoking across the country. Hey I am not a smoker and don't like it, but big brother can not start coming into our homes and telling us what we can and can not do! What will be next? You can't eat this or drink that, or they are going to watch what we are doing in our bedrooms and living rooms...and I won't even start on all the other crap he is for! As far as I am concerned.. him and McCain making a deal...they are already worse than Bush, making deals already....and way to sure of themselves! I already want to wipe that smirk off of McCains face! And then there is Ron Paul...don't even get me going on him *L*
That doesn't give us much choice....ugggg I am so not looking forward to the election this year! I am seriously considering starting a My Space thing for 'Write in Romney'!! And since I don't believe in voting party, I vote person and what they stand for. I can not in good conscience vote for Hillary, because I can not stand her on so many levels. That leaves Obama, and I am just not sure about him yet, and part of that comes from reports I have read about some of his beliefs. So I am already torn about what is going to happen in the election this year.

Ok, stepping off my soap box now! *L* If you read this far I have a little something fun for you to do.

What kind of car are you?

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Now for even more fun!! If you are a scrapper that is! *L*
