Its good to be ....

I was back at work today bright and early, but only lasted till noon. Still felt a little puny. After a long nap and a little lunch, I felt 100% better. Now Richie has it. :(
I did get to work on my upcoming beginning elements class tonight. And here it is....

Roaree thinks he is the king, and he is of this household. His newest demand is brushing. He likes to be brushed and now demands it like the king he is. The kit to make this layout was a blog freebie from Nichol Young Designs. Check her stuff out.

I am Alive, but barely

I peaked over the covers this morning hoping I was still alive and my stomach feeling back to normal. Well its somewhat better and my mood is black since yesturday was 24 hours of flu hell and its taken away one of my precious days off. Now with a planned housefull for easter I have to try to get everything done along with my 50 hour work week. Geez! Oh well onward. God please let my toast stay down!

Angles and composition

This week at I ♥ faces the submission is "Focusing on Angles" I love learning each day more and more about photography. It really helps tell my stories. I stopped by my friend Taryn's house to shoot a couple photos of her little baby girl. I had tough time as she was fussy, but this shot and angle really touched me. Its not the perfect shot but beautiful to me just the same. Enjoy and take a minute to stop my I ♥ faces and look at all the entries!

Luck of the Irish!


I have a little luck of the Irish in me (thank you mom) and am a lucky girl. My hubby has been super busy working on my digital happy place at home. As most of you remember I have a Happy Place that my work husband put in for me at the office and its filled to the brim like the local scrapbook store. At home I do all my digital work so my hubby is putting in a digital happy place. Oh Yipee. Well it will be done this weekend so look for the pics.


I am lucky to have such a giving, caring husband, a giving and caring best friend and for both I give them all that I've got. So I am so lucky that I have my creative spaces as its the only thing that relaxes me and gives me a little peace.


And today also marks my 300th blog post, wow, I guess I do have something to say!

Khylie-6 month pic

I took my great niece's six month pictures in January and I had posted them on my blog. Richard and I met Rachel in Santa Monica today for Khylies Dedication.
I decided to used my cocoa Daisey February kit to make a little accordion book for her. I thought it turned out nice and they loved it. Let me know what ya think.


Here is the card I made with some left over scraps and a prima jewel florish.



Inside the two small photo inserts is a place for the father and mother to journal. Have a happy Day.

Geez....

Ya know, this girl needs her sleep. I am very very VERY cranky if I don't get my 7 hours of sleep. I can survive if I have to with 6 hours and love 8 hours, but for day to day sanity of those around me I need 7 hours. HOWEVER, Chevron decided they needed to put a drilling rig up on the hill above my house. That brings along 24/7 noise. The loud humming of generators and lights that are spot lights shining in my bathroom block wall which then shoots off the mirror into my bedroom. (thank god for the new shades in the bedroom that Richie put up)



This is what I am dealing with and its not making me happy!!!!!!!!!! I guess I will have to get break out the sleeping pills!!

My little baby's new bed

As I have posted before, my new digital happy place is currently under construction and my hubby is buy putting all my wants together. The room was previous an office (junk room) and my little bitty kitty, Chipper's special place. In preparation of sharing it with Mama, I bought him a new hot pink bed cause I needed a touch of pink and thought this would be perfect. It came a couple days ago and I put it on a little table by the window (the new blinds are not here yet so the old ones are up cause Richie says I walk around the house naked too much!) I put my little baby in it and he jumped right out. Well today Richard walked in there and he was appreciating his new little bed. And best yet, Richard took a picture so I could "do something scrappy with it". So I am super happy he is going to like his new little place in my new Digital Happy Place!!!!!!!!
