My First Pub!

If you look on the far left side of page 66 in the November/December issue of Paper Crafts magazine, you'll see this!!!

I can't tell you guys how excited I was when I found out this card got picked up! :D It's kinda fun to walk past the magazine stands, see that mag and know that a card I made is in there.

Thanks for letting me share this with you! :D

A Little Man Funny

Well, at the doc's on Thursday, Little Man had a follow up hearing test. He was just as cooperative as the first time. (read: not very) I could tell he was hearing stuff he just wouldn't tell us. I noticed him register a sound (but not tell us) and I asked the nurse and she indicated that it was really loud. So, in desperation, I asked him if he'd heard anything.

"I don't know. No. I didn't hear anything."

Then, I asked him, "Was it loud?"

His answer, "No, it was quiet."

At that, the nurse and I erupted into laughter and the test was over. :)

(He has another follow up in a month at their other office that has a more kid friendly test. We'll see how that goes.)

Looking Back...

So, I've been reading back through my blog. Have you ever done that? It's amazing the things that you forget. I really love reading back through all of it. So, you may start seeing a bit more of the mundane, family stuff mixed in with the scrappy/crafty schtuff.

Starting now! LOL!

~Tomorrow, Little Man has a follow up doctor's appointment. At his four year check up I expressed some concerns about his hearing. The doc found some fluid and so prescribed some OTC allergy meds. We'll go tomorrow and find out if it's helping or not. I have noticed that he doesn't have such a hard time hearing me now so maybe it is helping. I just really don't want him to have allergies. It just seems like such a pain in the tuckus! :(

~He's got preschool tomorrow and I need to remember to bring money because it's Book Fair time!!! We looked on Tuesday and there's a Cat in the Hat book that he wants. And, an Artemis Fowl book that I'd like, and for only two bucks! Woot!

~Miss Thing's fever finally broke! She's been hot since Friday night. She's still coughing and phlemy though. Andrew had to stay home from my cousin's wedding on Saturday and stay with her. Totally a bummer because...I wore a dress!!! LOL! I'll post a pic once my uncle gives me some of his. :) Anyway, she was super warm (101.5) and rather lethargic but she was still eating and drinking well so I went by myself.

~I subscribed to the Nook! It's been an online home of mine for over a year and a half but with all the house searching and such I couldn't really commit until I knew we'd be fine. I'd hate to overextend myself and then have to cancel. But, after a year here, I took the plunge! I got my first kit and it's gorgeous!!!
I've started a cool two-pager but Miss Thing is super clingy when sick so...you may have to wait a while to see it. LOL!
~Speaking of scrappy-ness, my next project (after that layout) is to get crackin' on my December Daily album. I did one in '08 and LOVED it! I don't think I'll do an every day thing like I did two years ago, because I was going to do that last year and the stress of it with two small kids and a new home was just too much and I skipped it. So, I'm just going to try to hit the high points and if I get a picture for the day, cool. If not, totally cool, too. Heh!

So, are you doing a December Daily this year? If you are, I'd love to see it, so share a link in the comments so I can give you some love! :)

Inkadinkado!

Inkadinkadoooooo! Not only is it fun to say but it was also one of the first stamp companies that I ever bought stamps from. I think I may have that pegasus stamp around here somewhere...LOL!

Anyway, they are the second featured manufacturer for the month of November at A Walk Down Memory Lane. Here are a few layouts I made using one of their stamps. :)
I used the same stamp and the same paper line, Crate Paper's Snow Day for both of these layouts. On my 1st Fall layout, the stamp makes a fabulous sun!


On The Queen and Her Court, I used that stamp to create my own large patterned back ground paper. This time the stamp really reminded me of a top view of a crown with all it's points. :)
Anywho, I hope you liked my layouts and remember, every Inkadinkado stamp is on sale for 25% off this month!

November Stuff!

Hi guys! I've got some fun stuff to share with you today!

First up, is the November sketch from My Sketch World. I love a multi photo sketch!
And, here's my layout using this sketch. I followed it really closely this month because it worked so well with my photos.


I also got to use Lucy's card sketch for this month! Woot!!! Here's the sketch.

And, here's my card!


I used some Tooth Fairy papers from Karen Foster because they are our Featured Manufacturer for November over at A Walk Down Memory Lane!

I also made this cute little tooth tin for Mickey.

Love that toothbrush and toothpaste! :)

I also made a purple one for Miss Thing. You can see it, and step by step instructions on how to make it, in the November 1st newsletter. :)

And, finally, another layout. This one is using a sketch from one of Scrapbook Generations Sketches for Scrapbooking books. Love them!!!!


Well, those are my November goodies! I hope you liked them. I'm off to my scrap room to tidy up so I can play! My Sketch World has a ton of challenges this month and every challenge you complete is an entry into a drawing for the Lil' Robots collection from My Mind's Eye! Whoo-hoo!
Thanks for stoppin' by!
