More Guest CT LOs

I've been totally slacking in my regular CT commitments, and I feel terrible about that, but for some reason I just can't find my groove.  Hopefully I didn't lose it for good.

In the meantime, Ms. Flergs has been rockin' the store with her new kits and so I want to show off the LOs I've created with her new stuff.

The kit I used for these next LOs is called Trouble Maker.  I had to scrap these adorable photos of my youngest nephews.  They are just sooo stinkin' cute that I couldn't help by snag these photos from Stephanie and do something with them. 


And some photos from my birthday dinner.  I used Megs collab with Tangie Baxter called

17 Cherry Lane.


And another couple using Rough and Tumble RELOADED

Guest CT

This month has been completely crazy for me already.  Totally insane, but I'm finding time to scrap.

I'm attempting to do the Project 365 photo challenge which involves not only taking a photo a day, but also scrapping it.  I'm already so behind it isn't even funny.  But I'm still going to attempt it.

I'm also participating in the ADSR Season 4 with Patricia again.  We've completed the 1st week and are moving on today to Week 2.   It's already been a real challenge for us.  Ha!

And my last exciting bit of news is that I'm a Guest CT for Flergs!  I'm not only excited, but shocked!!  But I'm loving it and have already created 2 LOs using her Rough and Tumble: RELOADED.  And they are super cute LOs!!

And since she's given me this amazing opportunity, I want to share with everyone that for 1 week only (although the week may almost be over) she has all her glitters on sale at 50% off.  You don't want to miss out on this sale because after the week has ended, they will be GONE forever!!!

Okay, so not really! But it is another Sweet Shoppe Designs From Our Blog to Yours. This time around, we were to take this Snow Test. Of course, since there is little to no snow here in ATX, it was interesting to answer these questions since I really don't know what I'd do.

Your Snow Test Says You're Independent

You feel like something good will happen to you in the next few days.

You love to work, especially when work is creative. You have the makings of a successful artist.

You are an independent, individualistic person. You thrive when you're doing your own thing.

Your biggest worry in your life is your health. You tend to be a bit of a hypochondriac.

When it comes time to relax, you really indulge. You are all about your favorite comforts.

It's a New Year!

Welcome to the 2nd day of 2009.  My poor Hannah doesn't understand why we haven't seen the "firelights" and said "Happy New Year!" yet. Poor girl was asleep by 9 pm on Wednesday night.  Of course, Mommy dozed on and off from 9 until midnight, only awake long enough to tell my snoring husband "Happy New Year!"  And boy did she have a meltdown when I told her it was already the new year.  So together around 6 pm last night, we yelled together, "HAPPY NEW YEAR!"  She said it's not the same.  LOL.

Of course, along with the New Year comes resolutions.  I try not to get hung up in the craziness of it all.  But this year, my resolutions are not the same as the ones I've had in the past.

Over this coming year, I hope to

  • grow closer to my LORD.  Drive into his Word and continue to learn how to be like Him. 
  • continue to love others like Jesus.
  • be the mother to my children that the LORD wants me to be.  I want to have more patience and understanding with them when it comes to every day things and I want them to see how to love others by my actions. 
  • be the wife to Stephen that I know I can be - I want our relationship to strengthen in ever ay possible.
  • lose the weight I gained with Cayden by living a healthy lifestyle.  I want my entire family to live an active and healthy lifestyle.  This is so important to me.
  • grow closer to my family and friends. I'm tired of superficial relationships.  I want each relationship I have to grow deeper.  Those that don't, are a waste of my time.

So those are my resolutions.  Pretty deep if you ask me.
