Paper - Something I had in my scrap room
Bling - from the local dollar store

This is a layout that I am putting in a book all about myself.  This picture is from  the summer of 1993.  My husband and I met on June 30th 1993 and this is a picture on the Maid of The Mist in Niagara Falls Canada! It was a little trip we took in August of that year. This is one of my all time favorite photo's of us!

Ginger Bread House

Paper - Something I had in my scrap room

Ribbon - Close to My Heart

Ribbon Slide _ Close to My Heart

Bling - From the local dollar store

Embellishments - Cut with my Cricut

Every year like all the other kids out there, my kiddies build a gingerbread house!  This year was a little more of an adventure because I had just gotten out of hospital, from having 2 major surgeries, so my kids didn't get as much help as they are used to! Still they did a great job, used their creativity and didn't do to bad of a job cleaning up.

My Best Friends Wedding!

I have been working on a book about myself and my life events. One thing I have been meaning to add to my book (pictures all picked out and set aside) was "My Best Friends Wedding".  Well don't I look at three of my favorite challenge blogs and I can incorporate this layout into all three.  So I got to work.....

Paper - Silhouette by Close to My Heart
Flowers -
Bling - Close to My Heart and Various stores
Ink - Close to My Heart

This layout has tones of bling (my fav.), layering, flowers, distressing, popup's! It has it all!
I hope you like what you see! I sure did enjoy making it!

Christmas Sleight Ride....of years gone by

Paper - Mistletoe X7130B by Close to My Heart
Embellishments - Cut with Cricut - Cartridge "Christmas/Noel"

There is nothing better than a beautiful sleigh ride through the woods Christmas Eve. Our family has done it many times (My Husbands Parents started the tradition), it makes for a wonderful, fun filled Christmas eve.  We bring warm drinks, music and my brother also brings his guitar so we can sing Christmas carols.  When you get back from your sleigh ride, the farm supplies hot chocolate and Santa is there to greet the kiddies.

New Babies! born June 3rd and 4th

Born June 3rd, 2011
Mother - Bugsy
Babies - 9-1

9 Babies but one was very tiny so I put it with the litter born the next day to Carmal.  Her babies were half the size and she only had 5, so this little runt would have a better chance with Carmal as they only have 8 nipples and with 8 babies twice its size, the rund would not have had a chance.


Born June 4th, 2011
Mother - Carmal
Babies - 5 +1

Carmal has taken on Bugsy's runt as if it was her own. No issues with rejection at all.  You can see on her hip where she has pulled her fur out to line her nest.  Bunnies always do this before the deliver their babies.

These babies were born during the retreat I was co-hosting so I kept having to go home and check on them!! Thank goodness we are close to home!

This is "our Christmas" with my Husband Parents a couple of weeks before Christmas.  They usually spend Christmas with us but this year they flew out west  and spent Christmas with my Husbands 2 brothers and their Families.  We were happy for them all, we can't be greedy and have them every Christmas and Holiday, even though we love it when they are with us!
