Hunting Layout

These are 2 12x12 layouts, of my husbands hunting trip this past fall.  I have to say I thought, once, twice, a hundred times about weither to post this or not, as I would not want to offend anyone. 
It is a smiple layout with stamping and the moose were cut with my cricut, then instead of using the actual cutouts I used the negative piece left over and sponged them instead, they look more real.
My husband really liked it and I hope some of you do to.

I am top three over at Just Buggin: Challenge 21 Monocromatic

This is the Comment on my layout From Just Buggin!

I thought this layout was beautiful and to me summed up what scrap booking is all about. I thought both the design and the colour was stunning. I am not sure what cartridge Kelli used (maybe you could leave us a comment Kelli to let us know). I really enjoyed reading the history behind these photos - hop on over to Kelli's blog to read her article.

Who Am I - Post ten

It's Baby time!

Cricut and Cartridge "Noel" for the rocking horses, Martha Stewart Punches for the fence & scallops and stampin' up punch for the flowers 
Well here I am with my very dear friend Patricia at her baby shower, she was due almost 3 months before me, but since my baby was in a hurry,
they are only a few weeks apart.

The day this photo of me was taken of me in labor, with my husband, It was a Friday, I still had a month of work, It was a work day and My husband had stayed up most of the night planning a surprise road trip to some bread and breakfasts in the United States, as a relaxing last trip for me before the baby arrive.....that didn't work out! Not long after he came to bed, my water broke at 3am, a month early, of course being my first delivery, I thought I pee'd the bed. So a month premature,
we welcomed on Saturday night our Daughter Makayla.

To be honest with you, I loved being pregnant, even with all the issues I had keeping babies to term, and miscarriage, I was so happy pregnant, loved every minute of it. This is also the time I started coming to terms with my new body and gained lots of self esteem and self confidence.

Who Am I - Post nine - Wedding Again!

This has a very distressed background, lots of glitter and flowers of the same colour! The pearls and daisies really bring thru that wedding feel.

This is 1997, a time in my life where there were lots of changes!

In a matter of a year we;

Got Married

Purchased Our First Home

Got Pregnant with our first baby

and miscarried for the first time.

Wow, a lot in one year! This is also when I packed on most of this weight I am carrying around. My dress is beautiful, it's one of a kind, designed and made just for me. I choose everything down to the last pearl! But when I look at it now, I realize, I was shopping for the "fat girl" covering up everything! I remember saying the sleeve needs to be a little longer, a little longer, maybe a little longer......Lord knows it was so hot you could barely breath on the beach were we got married......but I needed to be covered up.....If I could do it over, let me tell you I would be wearing a much cooler dress, still very formal and detailed but maybe strapless or tank style at the top, and my poor husband could them be dressed in linen pants and a nice shirt blowing in the breeze instead of a tux....Its a matter of excepting ourselves for who we are, and becoming comfortable in our own skins.

Now in saying that, I loved my wedding and my pictures in very formal attire on the beach, I think they are stunning, but oh man were we hot!!!!
