Well, I finished another quickie Layout -- this one is of Kaitlyn and her cousins (my twin neices) Aubrey and Ashtyn last week at Nanny's house. They love playing together and this picture shows it! This was a quick layout from a Stampin' Up! kit - which is now retired, but they have some great ones in the new catalog!(check it out by following the link to the right!) Thanks for looking!
The kids had a great week at Vacaton Bible School this year! At the end of the week, they had a special climax featuring Dan Breeding of Creatures of Creation where he brought some of his creatures. He brought a Gibbon, a squirrel monkey, a monitor lizard, a horned owl and especially he brought an ALLIGATOR that the kids were able to pet and have their photo taken with it. They were soooo excited when they came home and told us all about it. What a great week learning about all God has made! This is a layout featuring some pictures that Nanny took of them with the alligator. "What could be 'GATOR' than this??" (click on layout for larger view)

Another set that I have is called Zoofari - this is a cute animal outline set. I have used the new IN Colors on this one too!
Pick A Petal is a new set that has lots of possibilities!
And one last one uses 2 new sets, a hostess set Garden Silhouettes and Holidays & Wishes.
There are also lots of new accessories like rhinestone brads in circle and square shapes, tons of new chipboard, GREAT designer papers and the beautiful 6 new In Colors -- Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, and River Rock. GORGEOUS!
Be sure to check it all out, and let me know if you NEED anything! *wink*

1. I lived in the same house growing up until I got married (minus college).
2. The farthest west I have been is Memphis TN (or would New Orleans, LA be farther>??) Anyway, I haven't been OUT west and would love to go someday.
3. I wanted to be a nurse from the time I was a small child (like 3 yrs old) -- and I AM ONE! :-)
4. I knit - I have made sweaters, blankets, xmas stockings, and even SOCKS! and I love it!
5. I can tat! Do you even know what tatting is? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatting check it out
6. I used to be an ATM custodian and carried $100K or more in my car with an armed guard to refill and check on ATM machines (while in college).
7. I have 2 beautiful and very smart children -- DD is going into the 4th grade and made straight As all year this past year!
I guess that is all for now...and I guess I should tag someone but I am not sure who so I will leave it as this for now! Thanks Margaret for tagging me -- FUN!

Well, after much hemming, and hawing over whether or not to try digital scrapbooking, and "talking" it over with my online buddy Margaret, I decided to TRY digital scrapping. So, I did a google search for some digi tutorials and free downloads, and found some great stuff at http://www.shabbyprincess.com/ . There are tutorials and free downloads, and you can even sign up for a newsletter! What fun! Jump on over and check out her cool site!
So, I downloaded the Sun Porch by Amy Teets kit and jumped in. I have PhotoStudio2000(ArcSoft) that came with my Canon scanner years ago, so I am sure there are better/easier softwares out there, but I was able to create this LO with my limited knowledge and skills -- pretty cool. Now the journaling and title are kinda corny, cause I was just foolin' around, but it was cool to see everything take shape! I had fun! Thanks to everyone, especially Margaret (her blog http://lembckechronicles.blogspot.com/) for all of the encouragement and inspiration! BIG HUGS!
