Oh.. I can't believe I forgot!!

This little girl came into our lives last Saturday the 16th.
Little Miss Sage Madison, my new niece :)
8 lbs, 4 ounces, strawberry blonde hair

I'm so proud of her Daddy (above), my "baby" brother. This is his first baby and he is a natural. And his Mama had her ALL natural. No medicine AT ALL. And it was her first baby as well. Can you believe that!!
I have the feeling she's going to be the subject of MANY future scrapbook layouts :)

Hey all.
Well, if you're still reading my blog, I appreciate it.
I know I've been so flighty and not updating like I should. There is ALOT going on right now. Scrapbooking hasn't really been on my mind like it used to be.
Those of you that know me personally or follow me on Facebook know the deal as I wear my heart on my sleeve and am brutally honest. Just please keep praying for us. We really need it.

As promised, here is the layout I did at my crop on the 9th. I don't care for it, I want to change it up but still haven't figured out how to "fix" it yet. LOL
So it's going to stay as is for now.
(click to see detail)

And here's a LO that was actually done by my friend Sarah Mullanix. She's an AWESOME scrapper and I'm proud to be using a page of hers in Caleb's album :)
All I did was add pictures, faux stitching and Stickles.
Thanks Sarah!
I *heart* it!! :)

I need to get my butt into gear. I have agreed to scrap a Sweet 16 album for a special teenager and it's due by mid Feb. I've done ONE page so far. YIKES!

Have a great rest of the weekend and........

GO COLTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL THE WAY, BABY.

How cute is this!

My niece is on her way!
Little Miss "Sage Madison" will be born SOON.
Her Mama's water broke last night.. she's just waiting for the labor to come on. I can't wait to meet that sweet little pumpkin :)

How cute would Sassafras' new CHERRY DELICIOUS line look with some baby pics of sweet baby Sage!?

Love this line! And can't wait to see "Apple Jack". I have the feeling that it's more boyish and will work wonderful with Caleb pictures :)

Nada, Nothing, Zilch.

Hey all. I have not had any time to scrap or take pics this week. So sorry.
Doug was out of town all day Tues and Wed and Caleb was SUPER clingy. Now that he doesn't take naps, it's impossible to get any scrapping done during the day.
And now I've got a medical issue.. it hurts when I sit down for long. So I'll try and get my work posted next week.
And YAY! I won on the Sassafras blog today. WHOO HOO!!!! LOVE Sassafras! And it looks like their new lines are going to ROCK! Can't wait!
I'll be sure to post my yummy goodies when I get them in Feb. WHOO HOOOO!!

Please PLEASE pray for the people of Haiti. I have personal ties to Haiti and am just so sad about what has happened in PAP.
My friend Luke Renner has been living in Haiti with his family for seven months now and is now in PAP helping with the recovery effort and documenting everything for the news channels here in the US. He has been updating Facebook with pictures and video.. it's just all SO sad. Please pray for Haiti tonight.

Thank you and have a great weekend, y'all!

Hey everyone! I'm here.
I went to my monthly crop yesterday but ended up only staying a few hours. I totally forgot we had a late Christmas party at my step Dad's family to attend so I left for that after finishing only ONE layout!! OMG, I talked WAY too much and scrapped WAY too little, LOL. So what else is new, huh? LOL
I'll show my layout later in the week after I get a pic of it.
Doug's going to Kansas City on Tues/Wed for a big job interview so while he's gone I'm hoping to be able to scrap at night after Cay's in bed and maybe I'll have more to show you than just the one layout :)

I feel like I'm in limbo right now.. Ever feel that way? Like I was so "off" at my crop yesterday because I was so sad about possibly moving away from all my crop friends.. I think I was actually depressed and it really affected my creativity. I sat down to scrap and couldn't think of a darn idea so I went around the room and talked to friends for a few hours. How weird is that!?
I mean, we don't even know for SURE that we are moving to Kansas City yet in my mind we are and I'm going to have to say goodbye to everyone here and that could have been my last crop. *sigh*

Oh well, it'll get better. I know if we move I'll make more friends. It's just sad to leave my NJS girls. *sniff sniff*
But you have to go where the jobs are. After all, no money, no scrap stuff, right?

I'll be back soon to post some work. Have a great week, girls! And please say a prayer for hubby. This job looks very very promising. They are paying to FLY him to Kansas City so that's a good sign they are serious :)

I'm still here....

I'm still alive and kicking :)

No scrappy news.. I haven't even looked at my scrap stuff in a few days. BUT, my 12 hour monthly crop is this Saturday and my friends Jenny and Sarah M are going with me. Can't wait!!!

AND... Guess what!!??
Hubby has a job interview in KANSAS CITY this week!!! How awesome!!!!!!! :)

And one of my friends started a challenge blog and is having a design team call. Check it out! I am not applying.. I've got WAY too much going on. But I thought I'd let you all know about it because I think it's going to be really cool.
It's all about scrapping the DIRT in your lives.

Well, have a great rest of the week, y'all!
