I did it!

I made the Design team for the Scrapboking & Crafting friends on NING. It was official on the 12th of this month . It's sponsored by My Grafico & I got my set of Digital stamps on the 14th. I have made a few things so far though I was a bit unsure on how to open & use them once I downloaded them . I did figure it out on my own but I am still learning. I am going to recive my new set in the next few days , I can't wait!


Rory these past few months has changes so much, he is officially turning 7 months this week and he is pulling himself up and cruising around the furniture already. I was surprised when he started to crawl so early dragging himself around but now wow I think he might just be an early walker and Boy I am not really ready for that yet! I want to have my little baby a baby for longer.

He just got his 3rd tooth on the Saturday the 26 , the first two showed up on the 1st and the 8th of September... so three teeth in one month! Wow!
At his 6 month apt he weighed in at 14lbs 12 Oz and is in the 5th percentile.. He is my little shorty... most people think he is about 3-4 months old..LOL
Rory has lost his original hair except for a few stragglers and has grown lighter hair in it's place... right now it is a sandy blond color definitely not as light as Griffin's White blond hair. He also has light brown eyes... I Love them but I wish he had more green in them like me or Brad or the beautiful Blue like Griffin & Erika ... Oh well He is definitely an individual and I Love him sooooo Much!


Well I will just start of with saying the past few months have just flown by. Griffin Started school & is doing well. He also has 2 speech therapy sessions a week and a OT/PT once a week so we are always running to Peoria to have therapy it seems. He is doing great though he is working on building his muscle tone up and balance along with his motion sickness problem in the OT/PT & he has really come along way in speech but he is still not understandable to most and I am still the interpreter for most things he says, We have found that for most words he either leaves the beginning or the end off so it is not easily understood what he is trying to say.

We received his School pictures back and they are so precious... the teacher said he cried and was not letting them get a good happy picture and they tried for awhile but eventually he did stop and they got a picture. I will have to upload it and post later I especially love the tear in the corner of his eye ..Poor guy he is such a sensitive guy. We had had a bad morning which didn't help. He got car sick so we had to rush home and change from his picture clothes , so we were late to school not a good scenario for Griffin.

Cricut & other things I LOVE...

There are so many Cricut cartridges out or coming out that I want. Winter Wonderland , Stand and Salute, From my Kitchen, Everyday Paperdolls, are just a few of the new ones that just came out that I want Oh, and lest I forget the ones that have been out for awhile that I want.. or the ones that will be coming out that I want. LOL... Not to mention, ( OK I will mention it) the Newest Gadget that would be great to have, The Gypsy... A portable design studio ...Ahhh .

What can I say I love my Cricut machine and I use it alot... it has been the best tool that I have bought for my scrapbooking so far... I want to eventually buy all the add ons and extras that they have come out with and will come out with in the future.

I am also totally addicted to stamps and I found the most kick ass stamps from some online friends from scrapbooking & crafting friends @ Ning . The company that has the kick ass stamps is called Bombshell Stamps and they are so freakin' wonderful! I would use these all the time if I had any ... LOL. Check them out I don't think you will be disappointed!

I also came across a Garage sale the other day where the lady was selling unmounted stamps for 10cents! Needless to say I bought all that I liked for just under $15.00! I have already used a bunch of them and I love them... I bought all the food,animals, fairy, toys and woods/tree stamps that she had plus a few odd ball ones like a alien in a flying saucer that looks like a paper airplane.. LOL adorable and perfect for a boy page.

I Love Stickles... A woman at a crop I went to turned me onto them a while ago and I loved them right away, I really love the way thay can add a more finished look to a project and they have so many colors. I love all of the clear ones the most Stardust, diamond, ect... they can be used for so many things you really get alot of bang for your buck when you use them beacause they take on the color of the paper under the stickle glitter. When dried it's really great looking. Once I had used them a few times I had to go and buy some more and this time the colored ones! I bought the halloween pack with the black, purple and orange and the christmas colored one red, green & a stardust, and for good measure I bought the pastel one that had pink lavender and a different clear one. So I am set ... umm. . . Well at least until I need some of the other colors...
Muahahahahaha......Brad is gonna Kill me ... ;P

And lets not get started on Paper.... it all so pretty! I use alot of paper either with the Cricut or just in layering multiple papers fo my Layouts. I could never have enough paper!

I could go on and on about my Favorite Scrapbooking things... but for now I will say goodbye! Look for my next post to find out more of my favorite Products and what I really want to try.

Yard Sale for Scrapbook Room

Well.. I am finally doing it. I am getting rid of all the useless junk in my Garage . Don't worry it's for a good cause, I am making room for Brads Gym stuff to go into the garage and the car needs to fit in there for the Winter too! In return for this I shall get the downstairs room that is currently the Gym for my very own Scrapbook room so that I can have more space to spread out and be creative. YAY! * Happy Dance*
I was able to buy 2 new Garage doors , garage floor paint & epoxy, driveway sealer, door hardware, new doorbell, shop lights for the Garage and a new wheelbarrow ... with the money from the yard sale! wow! Now to roll up my sleaves and get busy!
