Woohoo! Tomorow is the BIG day!

Okay so my non-scrapping friends will be eye rolling now, but scrappers will understand my excitement.
Tomorrow is the beginning of the new Lisa Damrosch class, "Product Playground 2" at Big Picture Scrapbooking. I have previously taken 2 of Lisa's classes and I swear she is my favorite teacher ever, she is a ton of fun, more talent than you can shake a stick at and I am beyond excited to see what she has in store for us.
I will be sure to share some creations with you when time allows.
BRING IT ON BABY, I'M GOING TO PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday to My Boy Evan and other baby news!

Seems so hard to believe that my middle child Evan is 7 years old today.
WOW! It seems like only yesterday that we were blessed with this little miracle, what joy he has brought to us in these 7 years (okay a few headaches too, but mostly joy LOL)
Since it was his birthday, we took him out for lunch, of course he chose Pizza Hut since he loves the lunch buffet. The waitress overheard us saying it was his birthday and brought him a huge piece of Chocolate Caramel cake, wasn't that sweet of her?
It was a good day at the old Pizza Hut to be sure. Several large groups had made short work of the buffet so we had to wait quite some time for fresh food to be brought out, the waitress felt bad and so gave me a free order of boneless Teriyaki wings (can you say yummy?) and then she gave Evan the cake which goes for about $5. As we were leaving our friend Ina who is a waitress came out from the back with 2 empty pizza boxes and told my kids to load them up with whatever they wanted from the buffet, the buffet ended at 1:30 and nobody else was having it so they stacked them boxes pretty full, talk about a windfall LOL

On an unrelated note, my dear friend Rachel gave birth to an 8 lb baby girl, Sienna Elizabeth last evening at 10:34 pm, I can not wait to see pictures of the little angel and wish I lived closer to BC so I could see them for real. Congrats Rachel, Brian and big brother Kane, welcome to the world baby Sienna, you've got yourself one heck of a mom there baby girl!

Back from Surgery, All is Well

Got home yesterday afternoon after having my endometrial ablation. Things seem to have gone quite well.
Today I am feeling pretty good actually, better than I thought for sure. A little crampy but nothing that I can't handle.
Time will tell how successful it was, will know more once a cycle passes but I still have high hopes, it certainly can't be worse than what it was before that's for sure.

I want to take a few moments to thank everyone for all the emails, posts etc that you made with your well wishes and prayers, you have no idea what they mean to me.

Today I will be taking it easy, DH is busy doing laundry for me and I am planning on spending some time down in my scraproom playing and relaxing.

Again, thank you all my friends, chat soon!

Epson Creative Zone...Cool!

This is a little Brag Book I made using free downloads from the Epson Creative Zone, if you haven't checked it out you really should. Tons of really cool little projects, really simple and free...can't beat that. I combined 2 projects to make it, I used the Travel Brag Book and the Travel Accordian Album one. In between the photo pages I am adding in the blank postcard and the blank journalling sheets so she can do her own journalling later.

I enjoyed it but have to say, digi stuff will never replace my love of paper scrapping, but I can definitely see more combining some of these great Epson projects with my traditional layouts.
