LO share again... Finished another one up! :)

I took the pics in this LO, while a passenger in a car. My Emma was in the back seat and the windows were rolled all the way down... she was getting the "Wind Blown Treatment." As a child, I always loved rolling the windows down and letting the wind blow wildly throw my hair... it was such a feeling of freedom. I so get a kick out of watching my Emma do the same...

I have the day off of work!!! And my plans for today... Well, I did my laundry last night, cleaned the liter box and swept the basement floor. So, that much I have accomplished... But, my cleaning lady never showed yesterday , so maybe I'll be doing alot more cleaning then planned... :( (I sure hope everything is okay with her!) Otherwise, I have some carpet shampooing to do this morning and then and Emma and I are off to help my Mom with some lawn work and the washing down of the outside of her house.

Now tomorrow, we are having Emma's Girl Scout Troop over for a pool party and camping adventure. Jeanie and I set the tents up last night, so we are good to go! And Sunday, well... I hope to do some more carpet shampooing and then relax with some paper scrapn'... And of course, in between all this, I plan to do some digi scrapn'! :)

Off to post my LO to DST. Later people! :)

Wow! What a weekend! So many fun things planned and lots of pics taken. So, this is what our weekend consisted of... Pool party with Emma's friends, Dalaney & Savanah; Emma found Prince Charming (the tree frog); Attended a party with some good friends and family(but I forgot my camera, so I have no pics!); Siblings and I helped Mom put in some new landscaping and bird feeder; Emma and Father's Day fun with Dad; and topped it off with a cat nap in the pool! So many fun pics to scrap!!! Wooo! Whooo! I hope your weekend was a good as mine! Now we will top it off, on the couch, with a good tv program and a big bowl of ice cream! (Ice cream is my all time favorite treat and I have a bowl pretty much every night.) Toodles...

Good Saturday morning people!!! I was up and at it at 5:00 a.m. this morning, just simply couldn't sleep any longer! So, I got up and started my day! I am thinkn' my Emma will be up soon, because she feel asleep pretty early last night. I had to give her a Benedryl gel tab because she is covered with swimmer's itch; poor little sweetie! Well, helped the itchn' and all, but boy did it make her sleepy.... Although, she is so in need of the extra sleep, because she has been a very busy girl with her friend Delaney, Summer School and swimming in the pool.
Today we are having Delaney and her sister over to swim. I think I'll give my sister a call too and see if she wants to break out that new suit of hers! It is suppose to be a hot and humid day again! (Perfect swimming weather; the pool temp is 88 degrees!) Oh, here is a pic of our pool, in case your wondering what our pool looks like.

Oh, and I wanted to share this lo I created using the Gypsy Pixels' (Sherrie Piegdon) designs . After I finished the lo, I just wasn't thrilled with it (don't you luv it when that happens!). It's a lo using a pic of me and I so get stuck when I scrap myself. (Why is that?... wierd.) Anyhow, I forwarded the lo to Sherrie to check out and she gave me some great tips! (Thank you Sherrie, you rawk girl!!!) So, I'm providing you with the before and after, reflecting the changes. Wow! I was amazed at the improvement!!!

Benign!!!!! Just received a call from Dr. Pangallo with the good news!!! She said, they took a big enough mass to check the plasma cells that were formed around the tumor, which typical are cancer causing cells. Although, she said it all looked good and recommends another Mamagram in one year!!! (Shit, I best not go thru this again next year!!! )

Oh... what a relief! I can move forward and celebrate life!!!!!!!!

OMG! I had a BIG surprise of an e-mail from a designer by the name of Sherrie Pigdeon. Sherrie has her own store called
and her blog is at Go check out her store, she has a care-free and fun style to her designs.

Anyhow, her e-mail stated she saw my LOs in the gallery over at DST and wanted to know if I would be a Guest CT for her, for the remainder of June and then July. Let's just say, I freaked! I couldn't believe what I was reading! I'm not saying my LOs suck, but I still have soooo much more to learn when it comes to digi scrapn'... I have never been a CT before and honestly didn't know if I could handle it... But, being the go-getter that I am, I said yes! Heck! Her design work is soooo my style and she is a very friendly and down-to-earch kind of gal. It's gotta be, meant to be! (I am so lookn' forward to this Sherrie!) So, now it's time to play!
Good morning! And it is!!! It is suppose to be sunny and 80+ degrees today! Too bad I have to work all day, hah?

Just wanted to bounce in and share a freebie link; they are so cute, I just had to! See!....

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Linkn' you up! :) Thought I would share a couple of freebie links, that I came across today! I so liked them and thought you may too...

Oh, and just one more for you, go to: for...

Happy Scrappn'!!!!
Hello! Well, I'm back at work today and not feeling too bad. A bit sore and starting to drag, but hey... I'm here! :)

I did a lil' digi scrapn' over my lunch hour. See what I created. It's pics of my daughter Emma and cousin Jenna, running and playing care-free on a Saturday afternoon... Couldn't ask for more perfect pics of the girls together!

Good morning! Okay, I'm feeling a bit under the weather today; I think I over did it yesterday by washing a couple of windows! (My doctor would not be happy with me!!!) But, it drives me nutzo to sit still! I have to feel like I've accomplished something in my day... (I got this lovely trait from my Mother; she is the same way.) I typically don't mind this drive of mine, but when I'm suppose to be taking it easy, it is too hard to sit still. It does come in handy most of the time, but not after having surgery.... But, I'm feeling awfully sore today, so I will sit here at my puter, maybe go buy some groceries, and later today I have a hair appoitment. No washing windows!
I would probably feel better too, if I could actually sleep through the night. But, the throbbing wakes me... such is life! They did prescribe pain pills, but I really hate taking them. I toke one Friday night and ended up sleeping sitting up, because it was throbbing so bad.... It was a long night...
Well, I'll probably back later today. Heck, what else can I do?...

Sunday, June 10, 2007

Look at this goofy girl!!! This is my Emma at the dinner table tonight with a big glass of chocolate milk. And yep, she was enjoying it! These will be some great pics to scrap! God I luv this kid!!!

This how we spent our afternoon yesterday... pool fun! And I'm thinkn' today will involve some of the same. The sun is shinning and it's suppose to be 80 degrees. Although, I do want to wash some windows first and scrap for a while... So, off I go...

Saturday, June 9, 2007

I joined in on the fun with Weeds & Wildflowers today and thought I would share my lo with you all. :) I so love this new kit of Gina's and will be playing with it some more yet today!!! :)

Friday, June 8, 2007

Good morning! I just had to go over purchase the "Being Me" kit this morning! Every time I saw it, I thought to myself, "You know you want it, so go buy it!" (LOL!) So, now I feel better... it's mine! :)

I do have a few other designs from Weeds and Flowers, but I wanted to use this one for their freebie challenge, the girls got going on over on their blog. Maybe you wanna give it a try, hah? Read all about it here:

Well, I am off to the hospital for surgery this morning and hoping I'm feeling up to some digi play later (if I make it home, that is...). I usually don't respond to well, to the meds they use to put you under. :(

Good Saturday morning to you!!! Started this morning with some coffee, my puter and some time to create! What more could a girl ask for?! But, it wasn't long and the quite ended and I had two lil' girls at my side, trying to boot me off my puter! Ggggggzzzzz.... My daughter does have her own puter, right next to me. Although, cousin Jenna is here and they both wanted to visit their Webkinz world at the same time. My answer was, "Back off!" :) Anyhow, our plans for the day aren't much. Emma has her dance recital today, so I told the girls to play their hearts out this morning. And off they went to play pet shop...
