Lindsey Holding Michaela Layout

This is a layout of Lindsey holding Michaela for the first time. Circa 10/2004.

I did this layout for a few challenges:

Use Your Stash
I had to use something from my stash, nothing new. I had used the Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' Just Delightful kit. I bought it about 4 years ago.

52 Sketches
sketch #43. I forgot to save a copy of the sketch.

Thanks for looking at my layout:)

Hey ladies! I need some help. I was tagged for a meme. My computer will not let me do a copy and paste!! Is it because my Husband downloaded the Internet Explorer 8? Are you having troubles copying and pasting? I have been trying for a week now. I can grab peoples buttons and save as pictures but can't copy and paste!!!!!!!!

Edit: I ended up downloading Firefox and it worked!! A humongous woo hoo!!

Franny the Witch Card

I made this Halloween card for a challenge at Crafting At Your Special Delivery. At the blog is a link to download the witch for free. As I said before, free is good!

I had used Martha Stewart's glue and glitter for the white strick in Frannys hair and the green glob in the jars. The jars were stamped images from an image swap I did with my SBS #26 Sisters.

I didn't have any Halloween stamp sayings so I wrote this one out. It was going so nice until I got to Witchin'.

Thanks for checking out my card:)

Purple, Man It Was Hard To FInd

Over at Yaya's today is Orange You Glad It Is Saturday. It is a day where Yaya lists everything that is orange...her favorite color. For us it is to list our favorite color or thing. My favorite color is purple. Yet, I don't own a lot of purple things!! What!! I had to scrounge around my house. Some things I forgot I had.

I was so excited to post that I forgot to edit some of my pictures. Close ups would have been nice.

This is Michaela's family potrait that I hung up last year. I gotta get a frame for it.
The accents on this frame are purple. This is a picture of Lindsey and Michaela. One of my favorites.

A candle holder I bought on our Honeymoon while we were in Ludington, Michigan. It has purple sand and shells in it.

Another purple candle holder I got for Mother's Day from Jason' parents. We use it to store change.

One of my favorite shirts. I look thin in it. It fakes a waistline:)

A pendant with an amethyest in the middle.

A bracelet with purpleish glassy stones.

Another pendant with a purpleish glassy thing.

Chessy 1980's earrings that I kind of just took from my sister when she moved out of the family house. Hey, she left them. I don't wear them. Right now I just can't throw them out.

A container that I use to store my paper scraps.

Amethyst earrings I got from an old boyfriend. Nope not the previously mentioned Numbnuts. This one I nicknamed Jerkoff.

Adela's Blue's Clues Pillow. She loves this pillow. You see the white spots? Those are her drool marks. I have to wash this pillow about once a week.
That is it as far as I know. If you want to play go over to Yaya Stuff and link up with Mr Linky.
You know you want to:)

Scrapbook Sunday: Quilt Page

Happy Sunday!! Scrapbook Sunday is brought to us by Holly of Girls At Heart and Noelle of Lil' Bits and Pieces Of Me.

I did a quilt-like layout. Right after Lindsey's first birthday party was over, Jason and I had to go bowling. Jason's parents stayed and watch Lindsey for us. They took pictures of her in front of the Christmas tree in her little rocker.

To see more Sunday Scrapbooks please visit Noelle and Katie.

A Fall/3D Card

Here is a card I did.

I did it for Jeannie's 3D swap. I tried to use the paper piecing effect. I didn't have a leaf punch. So I stamped leaves and accorns, embossed them and cut each one out. Hey, I did the cutting in front of the TV:)

I also did it for The Sisterhood Of The Stamping Sisters #26's color challenge. We were supposed to use the colors: orange, yellow, brown, red and green(optional).

I am also using it for KL Stampin' n Scrappin' challenge. You were to use fall colors.

Thanks for checking out my card:)

Happy Birthday, Michaela!!

On October 1, 2004 at 10:15 am, Michaela Lucille came into our lives. She was colicky but she slept pretty good at night. Yeah, she got up for a bottle or two when she was an infant, but she slept at night when she wasn't hungry. (with the other two I had to walk around or sit up and rock them. They wouldn't let me sleep at night...but you know, I can do this again...I want to do this again)

Here she is at 3 months.

This is Michaela last month for school orientation!! She is 5 now!! She has a little boo-boo on her nose. How that happened...she doesn't even know.

She is My Little Butt Lady. I love you, Sweet Bubba!!
