Soooo Loooong

Can you believe how long it has been since I blogged?? Did you miss me ?? :-)

What have I been up to...just scrapbooking, geocaching (we have found two more recently), working out. I have been watching this show recently called "the deadliest catch", anyone watch that?? I love this show it is so interesting...I tivo it while I sleep then watch it right when I wake up with my cup of coffee. Thats right ladies I am not getting Starbucks everyday anymore. I make a french vanilla coffee at home now. I still get my fav. white chocolate mocha a couple times a week.

BIG NEWS on the photography front. I get my lens tomorrow!!! I am so excited.
<--------------------------link to lens there in my gear section. The link that says my next purchase...I ordered it on Friday and UPS says it will be here tomorrow. You know I will be stalking him. I have been wanting this lens for about a year. It will be my first (of many to come) "L" lenses...which is Canons Pro lenses.

On the scrapbooking know I have a ton of pages to share. Its been two weeks since my last post!!!

You dont get to see my Memory-Works creations very often because they are exclusive to the website (and my blog), plus I can not load until they are revealed over there...this is with their February kit.

These Pages were made with the SNS brown/blue Feb. kit. You can shop Savvy N' Sassy for AWESOME ribbon kits HERE.

This layout was created with my new toy...the Silhouette. Quickutz just released it at CHA. The frame is part of the 50 images that come with the machine, the vine I bought via Quickutz, the words on the frame is a font from my computer and the butterfly is a regular Quickutz font.

These layouts were made for an ongoing contest at Timeless Inspirations (we are in the final week now...wish me luck).

This first page I traced around chipboard letters and then cut with exacto knife. I then put a different sheet of paper under each word and pop-dotted the enitre layout :-)

Thats all for now :-)

My Latest Creations :-)

I made these two over the last 2 nights....

This one is for an ongoing contest at Timeless Inspirations

This one is for a contest for GDT at CreateMyKeepsake (fingers crossed)
There is a special bond between Madison and Brooke. I don’t know if it is because they are so close in age but I hope this special connection last a lifetime. The interaction i get to see between these sisters everyday is amazing. When Madison goes to school Brooke is so cute, she says she needs Madison and wants her to come home. Madison is such a good big sister to Brooke. When Brooke gets into trouble she is very concerned and even trys to calm Brooke down when she gets upset. My favorite experience of their special bond that I have seen so far was when Brooke was in the hospital to have her kidney removed. Although Brooke had not seen me or Madison for a whole day when we walked into the door to see Brooke she did not even know I was there. She saw Madison and her eyes lit up and her sadness from being in the hospital that I could see on her face was gone. Brooke ran across the room and gave Madison a big hug. As she ran to her she was yelling "Madison, Madison." Brooke did not want to leave her side after that and kept saying she wanted to go home with Madison. As Brooke gets older and is more able to play on the same level as Madison I like to just stand outside their bedroom door and listen to them talk to each other. Madison takes on the role of big sister including being bossy at times. Whenever Brooke gets treats or snacks she always makes sure she gets one to give to Madison. Even though sometimes Madison gets the cookie with a bite missing. I love to see how thoughtful they are to each other. There is a special bond developing between those two beautiful girls. A bond that will last a lifetime and that I am lucky to see.
