Katie enjoying the Sunny Day

Here is my totally adorable granddaughter Katie. We celebrated Fathers Day on Friday because both of my brothers had to work. So the whole family headed over to my dad's house for an impromptu dinner & swimming get together. It was great getting everyone together. This is my sons first fathers day as a married I couldn't resist this picture of my granddaughter. It's taken from my phone because i.....GASP!!!....left my camera at home (hangs head in shame!).

I've Been Bad

I know i've been really bad about updating my blog. I'm going to try really really hard to post more often. I've been busy. I had a huge yard sale yesterday because i'm getting rid of the old and hopefully i'll be able to have enough money to redecorate. I started painting my living room a couple weeks ago and i'm not finished because I ran out of paint!! lol. So today, i'm off to Lowe's to buy 3 more gallons of paint to finish up my hallway, living room & kitchen.

I went out last night with my daughter in law, her mom & her sisters for her sister Misty's birthday. They bowled (i can't because it hurts my wrist) and then we went to the Elephant Bar to eat. Oh my gosh, i really love their food there. I've eaten there before and it is sooooo good. I couldn't eat everything. I even had a drink. I'm not a big drinker (although i do like tequila!) and it was kind of sweet for me.

Tomorrow is back to work (yuck! but thankfully i have a good job). Evening i have a class at curves again. I've lost 13 pounds and my goal is to lose 7 more pounds in 3 weeks. We'll see as i'm going to take it as it comes.

Haven't done much scrappin lately. I did sell a bunch of handmades and various things that i've had for years that i've never used and it made one lady really happy as she walked away with a whole bunch of nice items!

Will blog again soon!!

My grandchildren

I am finally adding some pictures of my beautiful grandchildren. Bryce is 5, Hunter is 15 mths old and Katie is 4 months old. These pictures were taken after Katie got out of the hospital. She wouldn't be smiling before the hospital stay. I absolutely love her smile!

Easter Card

Really cute card that I made. It's just a simple card using bazzill paper (love that paper!) and lavender felt fusion with an embellishment from my really large embellishment stash. I hope you enjoy this card as I really like it alot.

For Easter my son & daughter in law are having the Easter egg hunt at their new home. Hunter & Katie are a little young to hunt for eggs and Bryce is with his mom this year and will be hunting for eggs up north. I'm sure he'll have alot of fun. Tomorrow is not only Easter but it's my daughters 27th birthday. I will be baking her a cake.

New Cards

Here are a couple cards I made using some extra paper & ribbon that I had. I do want to try making more cards and posting them on the blog. As soon as I can figure out how to put a layout on here I will. I just can't seem to get the whole page in the picture from from digi camera. Oh well, it'll happen soon. I will be posting an Easter card that I made soon also.

Another card...

Here's another card i made while on my cruise. I'm still learning this blogging thing so i'm not too sure about how to put pics in with the posts.

My First Blog

I've been wanting to blog for awhile but never knew where to start. I asked friends which blog they used and how easy it was and so on. I want to try to blog often and I would love to post pictures of layouts & cards i've made. Last month I went on a scrapbooking cruise to Mexico with 3 of my friends. We had a blast and I'd recommend it to everyone who scrapbooks. I wish I could go again this year. Here are pics of the a couple cards i made while on the cruise. I just bought the silhouette and i'm learning so much about it. It can do so many things. I know it can do more than i realize. It's so awesome!
