About Me

I am a 51 year old woman who in the past few years have been through one thing after another. Even though I see God's hand in it all it has and continues to be a difficult road. I feel I cannot be the only person thinking and feeling the way that I do. Maybe not all of you and its not my intention to offend yet to help. So if you disagree then lets agree to disagree. This is the truth as it applies to my life and we could differ. This is my journey and I pray that in some way it may be helpful for you or someone you know. God Bless you all on your journey whatever it may be.

Good News Bad News

Well, I have good news and bad news to share. Which would you like to hear first? LOL Well, lets go with the bad lol. Well, I had someone apply for my CT position. I accepted her as she had a nice gallery set up and had been scrapping for a while. She seemed very excited and I thought wow this is going to work well. Then this morning I got the Im so overwhelmed and I dont think I can do this, yadda, yadda, yadda. Oh, man I am so disappointed. I really need the help so bad!! I am having a hard time doing the designing and the layouts etc. etc. Then there is the advertising. For some reason that always goes to the bottom of the list. That is so bad!! I need to advertise more!! I need more hours in the day!!!

Okay enough moaning and groaning!! The Good News is that I am taking over Linda Cumberland's Challenge Blueprint Challenge while she is on extended leave. I am very excited about this. It is going to be a fun challenge for me too! This month Linda already had done a sketch so I was off the hook but if I am still needed next month then I will have to make a sketch which I have never done but I am sure up to it!! I take the challenge on willingly lol!

I am still working on the featured kit but have one of the posting bonus' to show you. This bonus is if you complete the challenge with the featured kit. Here it is!:
Photobucket These are exclusive pieces that you will only get as a posting bonus. They will never be in the kit itself. I am so excited about this kit. If you have been to The Scrapping Garden lately you will have seen a sneak peak of the kit for the color challenge. I am excited to get it finished. I am almost there. I need to get it finished I dont think I am going to get it in by Friday. Maybe for Tuesday. OH MY the Challenge starts on Monday. Maybe I can pospone it until Tuesday. I think I am going to have too. Darn. I just realized today was Wednesday. I am too late for it to get in by midnight tonight. Oh Well!!

Thanks for reading and I will see you all on Friday with a Freebie. Pray for me that I will get some more applications on my CT Call. Have a wonderful evening!!

I'm Back!!

It is so nice to be back on my own blog. While I like blogging on The Scrapping Garden's Blog once in a while it is just so good to be home!! I had a pretty interesting weekend considering that Dean worked all day on Saturday and then was gone doing personal stuff all day on Sunday.

Saturday Morning John Paul and I went out to Breakfast. We always do that when Dean works. It gives him and I something to do together and he really does love going to Breakfast the most. The great thing for him was that Dean called after he got off work and wanted to meet us at the same resturant that I took John out for Breakfast. They serve Breakfast 24 hours a day so John got two Breakfasts!! He was so happy!! It would be nice if everyone was so easy to please!! Then when Dean was finished with his errands on Sunday we met him in Tacoma at Applebee's for Dinner. Whenever we go there I always get a half salad so I have room for dessert. I got the flowing Chocolate Cake with icecream. OMG it was so rich. I got to the last two bites and couldnt eat anymore. I was starting to get nauseated. I should have ordered coffee with it. I will know for next time. It was worth it though. So good. Soooo... Chocolatey(if that isnt a word I just now invented it!! LOL)

My Nephew's wife called me this morning which was a wonderful surprise!! I havent heard from them in so long! They had been homeschooling the boys which was totally not working. Well this year they decided to put the boys back into school. I am so happy. One answered prayer. Their youngest son is ADHD. They had not been medicating him. Just trying to take care of it naturally. Well, that didnt work so they finally got him put on Adderall!! Another answered prayer!! Their youngest child which is a girl. Her name is Mira is walking and talking. She is very, very intelligent. She is the cutest thing too. I will share a layout with her in it!!

Photobucket This is a layout using Linda Cumberland's Kit called "Madeline" Before I started Designing I used to be a CT for Linda. Mira is on the far left. My Nephew's boys are in the Middle and John Paul is on the far right. These pictures were taken this last summer when my sister "My nephew's mother", came to visit us. I hadnt been doing layouts very long when I did this one so I know the drop shadows are a little higher than they should be.

I wanted to remind everyone that my Celtic Dreams Kit is in the store now. It will be on Sale until the 11th of March. Then it will go to regular price. Here are the previews of that kit:

Paper Pack:
Photobucket This kit is a more traditional kit and the paper pack has five bonus' in it. It was a fun kit to do and I learned a lot while I was doing it. I hope you all have a great day and I will be back for more blogging at least on Wednesday. I will try to make it tomorrow but I know I will make it for sure on Wednesday!

Have a wonderful Day,
