Posted by PicasaThis is our newest member of the family. I wasn't really sure that I wanted a new dog, let alone a puppy. But Ollie is a sweetie and has become my shadow. I still have much to learn about puppies but he is a doll. I'm sure he'll teach me what i need to learn. My favorite thing about him is , he is only 4 months old, but he never leaves the property and comes when I call. The one down side is he loves chase that is. My cats are not so fond of Ollie.
Again I LOVE this Bo Bunny paper. It is just too cute. I love orange too so that is an added bonus.
I'm actually on a roll with my scrapping. I am trying to simplify so that I can get more done.
Of course with an active toddler and a new puppy....I'm not sure what I can get done. Life is never dull.
Well, I can't Believe it but actually scrapped. My wonderful husband bought me an awesome Nikon SLR camera for Mothers Day/ Birthday. So I have been enjoying playing with it. It is so cool and I love the pictures that it takes. (I'll show more of those later.)

Posted by PicasaThis is our dog Piper, she is a Valley Bull Dog. She is 10 years old and we are enjoying our last few weeks together. Piper has lymphoma and there is no treatment, just a palliative treatment we are using. She still has a lot of life left in her, but we see she is not the same dog she was a few months ago. I loved this Bo Bunny doggy paper and was actually glad to do a page for her. I just have to think about what to say in the journaling.
I used the Jumble Alphabet from the upcoming SU! catalogue. I love the fun letters, I will be using it a lot for scrapping I think.

It has been a busy week. We have had moves, birthdays and mad dashes to the airport. That's a story and a half on it's own.

But right now M ike and I are relaxing (yeah right) at my Dad's house. We have done some shopping, enjoyed the sun, seen a couple of movies(Star Trek rocked), and met up with friends.

Pretty much a fun time. It will be over too soon. :(

I just wanted to share a couple of quick pictures of what I did before I flew to Ontario.
Drew turned 15 this week. Not as exciting as 16 but one year closer to being able to drive. Can my nerves handle it. He wanted a Batman cake. He supervised so I got it right and he was thrilled with the results. It's the little things in life that bring joy. Poor batman lasted all of 5 minutes when the time came to cut the cake. So a complete success.
Isn't it nice to be able to do special things for the people you love. I can't wait to scrapbook this for him. I think I see more cakes in my future.

My scrap table is covered with 1/2 finished layouts. It seems there are not enough hours in a day. I've thought about giving up on sleep but......... that doesn't work well either.

So I thought : Why do we scrapbook? What is it that drives us to preserve these memories?


So here is my tip of the day:

While you are thinking about connections to those around you that you love, consider thinking about the world population as well. Think about the causes or charities that are important to you and that you support. They say alot about who you are, which makes them GREAT TOPICS for your scrapbook pages.

Let's scrap into spring and share this hobby with anyone who will listen. LOL I'll be posting tips and other stuff all month and look for blog candy coming up after my trip. :)
