Ramping Up

My LSS is having a contest to pick a new member to be on the design team. I have been wanting to do this for a very long time & i am very excited to try out for this. The REALLY exciting part is that the customers are going to vote for who they want to be on the team between May 1-4!!

To submit for this, we had to turn in 3 LOs & one altered project. i thought I had everything figured out about what I was going to turn in. then I started second guessing myself and decided to do this LO that I have been wanting to do for awhile now. I worked on it till 2 AM and LOVED the way it turned out, that I decided it should be one of the three LO.

The hidden journaling is about raising my daughter to be a strong woman of God & independent, and confident in her abilities. this is a tough thing to do in today's society & it often worries me that I am not doing a good enough job. But I know that with God close by, he will protect us all.

thanks for looking & if you are in Tucson between May1-May4.....please vote for me at MMU!! :)

Birthdays & Weddings

Holy has been crazy busy over here the past few weeks. With what you may ask??

I can tell you there wasn't a whole crafting being done. There was a birthday party for Lexie & Bryson, which included their 40 closest friends being invited! But seeing these faces smile made the chaos of preparing for 40 kids & also their families all the worthwhile.

then followed my brother's wedding, with my angel girl being the flower girl.

Even though my brother was dashingly handsome and his bride was beautiful, I have to say that my sweet Lexie and my nephew, Austin, stole the show. She took her responsibility as flower girl very serious and didn't hesitate to "sshhh" her cousin as he started making faces at her during the ceremony. It was quite a hoot! How I love my girl.

Now I am yearning for some crafting to be until next time, Gadget!

creative me...happy daughter

I have steadily creating lots of different fun things during this past week. First, I have been really, REALLY wanting to make a t-shirt dress for Lexie. So my friend Mandy and her good friend, Jen, took some time away from scrapbooking on Saturday night to show me how to make these wonderfully cute dresses. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I made some cards for a swap hosted by Regina. The theme was "spring" and I was so excited to do something with Butterflies & birds.

i also made myself a new skirt & I have plans for some other fun stuff. I have a hankering to get some scrapping done, too. It's been TOO long!! but hey, we can't be everywhere at once, can we? my kids still need to eat, people!!
