Here are 2 layouts I created using a wonderful kit by ChrissyW Digital
This is a wonderful kit, seriously, if you don't have it get it! She was kind enough to pass out a few freebies on her facebook page to a few people she would pick out of those that had commented. I am sooo very thankful for this freebie as it really is an amazing kit!
Please know that I did use a word-art element from digiVickie for the first Layout and A tied ribbon tag on the second layout made by InspiredbyDominic Designs

You should see more from me done with this kit, I LOVE it!

I'm Back

Yes, I have been away for nearly a year but I'm back once again and do not plan on leaving any of you!
While I was gone we purchased a new home for our family:  
We had been trying to figure out a way to do this for a long time and in April we had our chance and we took it! It's been a crazy ride since then, This home was a foreclosure and needed a lot of love. Here are the photos from when we first got it.

So far we have done quite a bit of work but this summer we plan on doing a lot more and when that work is completed I will gladly share the photos from that.
We also had a lot going on in July, I got a second job and we celebrated my oldest son's 4th birthday in the new house despite the fact we didn't have anything in it really. With the second job I hardly was home and it was worst these last 2 months. So December 13th was my last day on the job for one of them, I am now only working 2 days a week and hope to scrap a lot more than i have been.
My boys needed me home more and i needed to be out of the house less so since i'll still be making the same amount I went with it.
If you are a designer and need some ct help just let me know. I hope to start designing again here in the next few months.
I hope you enjoy the layouts I am sure to start posting shortly. Also be on the lookout for freebies!!! I love to give out freebies!

Two New layouts to share and a great freebie!

So between all of the chaos at work while my boss was away playing in Las Vegas for 4 days, the "normal" chaos at my house along with the crazy schedule's I finally found some time to create 2 layouts.. well one layout and one desk-topper for March.
You can get this kit at her store with Scrapity-Doo-Dah.

This kit is Awesome! I love the colors and the artsy style to it. It allows you to use this kit for all kinds of events, seasons, themes and much more.

On a personal note: I am still setting up my computer and getting things set up but as you can see from my march desktopper I hope to create a few things in the month ahead. 
I'll be celebrating the 1st birthday for my youngest little boy, Dawson. We aren't sure what the theme will be or the colors but once i have that figured out you'll most likely see bits and pieces of things such as invites and such. I would like to have it someplace that is kid friendly and especially baby friendly.. and out of the rain.
As for now though I'll leave you with a little goodie. Hopefully i'll find the time to post again tomorrow so keep an eye out!

Long time and lots to tell you about!

I know it has been an exceptionally long time since I have been on here and posted a single thing but there has been lots going on. As I last told you all, I got my alcohol server permit. I am still a cook at the VFW near me and I have been waiting tables on Saturday while bingo is going on as well as when needed for Sunday nights. Later this month I will be getting to bartend. My little man is now 10 months and my big boy is almost 4 (this July) No plans in the foreseeable near future for any new additions to our family. We hope that by this time next year we are in a different home than we are in now, one with more room for the kids to run and play. Hubby got a promotion and is now the head bartender at the sushi place where he works. Sadly my Dell computer broke the other day so I now have a new Samsung that I am setting up. I am still currently waiting for photoshop cs4 or cs5 to be installed on it. I now have a Wacom Bamboo pad that I have never worked with, I just got it so I will be trying to set it up and play with it soon. I hope to have a lot of new things in store for you here very, very soon. For all of you who have the Hallmark Card program I will be sharing some of the cards that I have made with it.

If there is anything that you would like to see specifically from me please, please, please don't hesitate to let me know.  Just comment on the post or send me an email, I would truly love to hear from all of you.

update once again

Sorry ladies and gents that I've been away a lot lately. I have my alcohol service permit now and have been training on my own time a the bar where I work as a cook. Hubby has been working a lot and we have had to get my oldest evaluated for some learning/speach/attention things. They want him back to do further testing sometime next week or after that. I'll let you know more after that.
As for my grandfather, he chose to not get chemo done after all. He decided for him being sick and the other bad things that come with chemo wasn't worth the extra 5% cure rate he would recieve. But he's doing great so far.
We will be going to the pumpkin patch here tomorrow after work! Can't wait and hope it doesnt will be a little while before you see anything new from me but i hope to get you lovely people some awesome holiday gifts and special treats for the season. so i hope to see you all around before too, life just has been so busy!

Update and an invite!!!

Hi there everyone.. I have an update for you all... My grandfather's surgery went fine and he's doing much better. They got all of the cancer from what they can tell but they are suggesting that he goes ahead with chemo just to be sure... We will find out more about that later tonight. Please keep him in your thoughts...

The kids are growing fast and i have quite a few photos that i'll be posting and scrapping before long. Dawson turns 6 months on monday the 27th!!! WOW boy does time fly! James is 3 and is starting to get a little excited over candy day as he calls it (Halloween). We have to see if he costume we got last year for him for this year will fit or if we need to get a new one for him.

Ok now onto a few other things.
My adorable oldest son was playing at my mom's and found his uncles safety glasses and decided to put them on, just look at this cute photo i took!

We had his birthday last month just after his actual birthday and here are some photos of the grand affair! lol
Daddy sat with him when we sang happy birthday but he was crying because he wanted to play with the toy on his cake..
Here is his cake,
After cake we did presents and here he was handing daddy a few toys and practically drooling trying to get daddy to open them for him. Of course daddy did so happily!

I can't believe my little boy is 3! I can remember so much about him being born and how amazing it was. The best feeling of all was finally holding him after waiting for so long. 

Here is another photo of my 3 year old, laying on the walk way at my moms watching her giant African Spur-Thigh Tortoise. He loves that thing. If you missed it before i spoke about here in another blog post a while back, here is where you can find that post.
