Happy, Healthy House!

Well, we're all better! Actually, I never did catch anything- still can't even believe that one! If the gang gets it, I get it. Definitely believe in the power of prayer! We've had a busy week with the holidays. Loads of fun and time spent with family always make it memorable. We even had a couple more birthdays to add to the mix!

Last week I was in charge of the All About Me challenge over at SCRaPDANGo. I wasn't sure what to do and had a couple of ideas, but they were squashed as I looked through the archives of past AAM challenges. So, the search was on. I decided to do a challenge about your name. It could be how you got your name, or maybe what your thoughts are on your own name. You could also do something with a name change from marriage. I decided to go with the "how I got my name" version and use a baby pic. I've never used a baby pic before and I figured it was about time! The title is "What's in a Name..." Here's my LO...

Sorry for not getting in closer on this one. Something is up with my Photoshop and it won't let me save any changes I make on pics. Very strange...

My AAM album is an 8x8, so that is what I went with for this LO as well. I used some Cosmo Cricket papers. I thought they did a good job of keeping the vintage feel of the 70's baby! I tucked my journaling away since it is kind of long. I wasn't sure about this one until I got it done, and now I just love it! (Hmm, have I said that before?!) I think what really helped were the little butterflies on the left. That is the first time I got to use my cute little Martha Stewart punch! Can't wait to use it more!

Welp, that's about it for now! Thanks for stopping by!

Where Has the Time Gone??

So obviously, I've been a complete blog slacker! I missed my own blogoversary a few days ago! Yikes!!! It was (unfortunately) for "good" reason though. Our household has been struck with the flu... Not sure if it is H1N1 or not as the docs don't really test much lately, and since it is seasonal flu season around these parts, it's hard to tell with just the symptoms. I'm the only one it hasn't hit, but I've had more than my fair share! I've been living in a surgical mask the last several days-I wonder if my family remembers what I look like?? Oh my... :)

I have been very busy with SCRaPDANGo goodies lately! I'm so excited to share what I've done so far for reveal day with my beautiful Sugar Kit! Check it out!
Pink Paislee's Amber Road

The kit actually is not complete as shown, but that is crazy considering how much is already there! It really is just beautiful paper. The colors are just gorgeous! I am not much of a theme scrapper lately, I've noticed. These papers had me digging into my winter and Christmas pics in no time! I've done three projects so far, and I'll have another 2 or 3 up in the next day or so.

This was so much fun! Make sure you stop by the Dango forum or blog to see what the rest of the DT did. Remember, I've just shown you one kit here. There's also the Spice Kit that is just as gorgeous!

Well, I'd better head off... Fending off the flu has been hard work! And I still have more scrapping to do!

Til next time~ <3
