Its word up.....
Over at 'one little word'

Miss Revlie chose the word this time around, the word Jump.... I have to admit I was a bit stumped at first and then one of my kids mentioned the song by Dallas Smith. It was perfect! I remember back to a time being 16, 17, 18 and thinking about life.... I had been with my hubby since I was 12 or 13 and we were trying to figure out if it was right, should we be married, should we be together? So we decided to jump right in... and so 27 years we are! while the years have passed by so fast and there has most definately been ups and downs I am so glad we decided to jump!!!
If you want to play along, head over to the 'one little word' blog and play!
Until the next time!

Happy Sunday!!
Hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend! However it is sunday already!! and It is also December!!! Like seriously? Lori sent me a message today to say that our rooms are booked in Las Vegas again!!!! I know that it will fly by like crazy! Not to mention that CHA is coming up in January! WOW I don't know where it is going but LIFE is flying by fast.... I just finished up the last Chapter of my Happiness journal and can hardly believe that it has been a whole year that we have been working on it! I have to appreciate the days more...
appreciate the little things, not worry so much about how fast it is all going but to really enjoy things more.... the little things....

I have to try not to get so caught up in how busy I am and just Breathe....

Sharla mentioned going toboggoning on Saturday and my first thought was... EEEKKKKK!!!! I have so much to do and then I just realized that "really" what is more important than spending time with family, time doing fun things? Turned out it was a bit too cold for the little ones since they have all been sick but next time they ask I just want to go.... and enjoy....

Here is the layout for this coming week and I do have the happiness to post but that will have to wait for another day, it is too dark to take a picture now....
Until next time,


Thursday, November 29, 2012

Life is good so.....
Let's Celebrate!

So most of you will remember 'one little word'..... If you don't, you can check it out Here! A few years back I was part of this amazing group of women.... it was fantastic! Because of life and different situations, Ronda (The mastermind behind OLW) decided it was time to back away from it... so to cut a very long story short, it never left her and because of that OLW is back up and running! And I am part of it once again! I am so excited to be back again with these amazing ladies!

This time around it was Jessi's word choice and she chose the word Celebrate.
I knew right away where I wanted to go with this word...

A lot of you ladies may know this story but for those of you that don't here it is....
Last year my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer.... He didn't seem overly worried when they found something there and when my mom called to tell us all she said was "They found a wee bit of cancer...." Like what the heck is a wee bit? That is the scottish in
Anyways my dad did really well and responded to the treatments really well and for now all is good.....
We are happy!!!
So in August my dad turned 70 and was so excited about it! ( not sure if I will be as excited as he was!) We had a party for him and i think he was so happy that he was able to celebrate it with all of his family around! We were too!
So my layout is called.... 'Life is good so Celebrate!'
Enjoy the little everyday moments everyone and Celebrate life!
make sure you go and check out 'One little word' and play along!!!

Until next time!

We had a great time, absolutely great! we even had time to sit and enjoy the pool and since the temperatures were around the 36, to 37 degrees it wasnt too hard to take... we won't talk about the slot machines though ok?? just

Saturday night....
ok so I have to say that I had the most oductive day today than I have had in a really long time! So proud of myself actually.... my bedroom, although it still needs a little work is finally cleaned up! I really need to do a major overhaul but it was needed to have everything put away and tidied up and I got that done today! Yay me!!! I also got a lot accomplished in my studio! so excited to have put stuff away for now that is! I also got a little bit done on 'my week in my life" album and I have to say it makes me happy just looking at it....
here is a little peek:
you will love it when you see it in real life!!!
Next is my #4 child turned 19 yesterday! say what? I know right? like where does the time go? He told me on facebook to just think of the moments and not the, oh to be young again! I want to say just wait till your my age and i know he will say you were right mom.... it is flying by..... lol
it will come! lol Happy Birthday Cole!!! Love you dude!

I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer! It  is just speeding past and I know for me anyways I am planning September... sad I know but I have to plan my classes at least!
I know most of you that read my blog will know that I am starting another Shabby Chic class... This will be the 6th album which is so hard to believe! I have to thank all of you for that! it has been a crazy fun time for me and I hope it has been for all of you as well!
We will be doing the 9th month(september) of our happiness journal which is like crazy, like we started that class in January and it gets funner every month! I can hardly wait to find a new book for January, I know that will be another fabulous class!!!!

This is all for now my friends, have a fabulous rest of your night!!!

Holy Moley!!!
ok I am not even gonna go there.... no excuses, it is what it is....
Busyness.... plain and simple! lol

On a lighter note I have been workin on my class for next week, "days of our lives" and i am so excited about it! who would have thought, a fun little tin can, a cute mini album in it and a whole weeks worth of memories.... all about you....
Imagine 20 30 or 40 years from now when someone is looking through that little album... makes me giddy just thinkin about it! I would love to come across something like that! what a  treasure it would be!
I promise to post some little sneak peeks in a day or two so that you all can get excited too! well the ones that are taking the class anyways! And Lori got the rest of the tins in so i can teach it! Yayyyy!

Not sure about all of you but summer seems to be fading away fast and it really makes me sad! i don't want to wish it away either....
take lots of photos, capture all those great memories..... i have to say I am a bit guilty of not picking up my big camera I have been using my phone but it is just so darn handy and takes some fabulous pics too!
I also wanted to share an album that is a work in progress.... a while back I got a box in the mail and it was some Donna Downey product! I was so excited! However because of the cares of life and just being too darn busy i just didn't get it done for awhile. I have however finished the cover of the album and I love it! I am slowly working on the inside pages but it is all about the girls and summertime so won't be totally done it for a little bit yet....
and a few shots from summer so far....

Hope you all have a fantastic week!

How can you tell its summer?NEGLECT....

there is no other way to describe it....and I do feel bad however I do get over it....

Seriously though....

it is bad.... however it has been really busy.... like I wasn't busy before but for some little tiny 2 year old reason I am busier lets just put it that way....

Good thing she is cute....

I did teach my happiness project today though and it was a fabulous class... especially this afternoon, there was a lot of creative energy goin on.... it was awesome!

and I totally didn't take a picture and the book is at the store.... K  i promise as soon as I get back there I will take and post a picture! Have to say I love it...  Love the class, Love the ladies that are taking it, although i know it has been highly stressful for some of you! For the record me too....

 On that note....
Lori launched her Iphone app yesterday and it is awesome! I think you will all love it....
go to Itunes and type in scrapbook inc..... and  just buy will love it!

It feels like our lives have been busy lately with birthday parties for all the kidlets and of course Sharla and Cody too....
We had supper and sort of celebrated Kades birthday on Tuesday... cute little dude turned 4... seriously where the last 4 years went I don't know....

 Kianna just turned 2.... and Miss Ellas birthday is next... then Cole....They are all so sweet! so hard to believe sometimes how fast the year goes....

Until next time,
