I love Halloween, don't you?? Each year I look for new ideas to make cards for the grand kiddos and keep finding wonderful designs. This year my dear friend Janet showed me a technique I just had to try. So for the 3 youngest, I did this type of card. Happy Spooking and don't let the goblins get ya!
We had our 2nd Fever Friends Scrapbooking meeting on Saturday Oct. 25th. What fun! We had around 20-23 ladies come and go throughout the day with lots of laughing, card making, project finishing, layout designing fun! We even had a digital scrapbooker! Plus all of the food everyone brought.
We collected $90.00 for the Make A Wish foundation this time. Way to go ladies.
As promised here is a picture of Jamie. He really is a trooper. We took him to Chucke Cheese and he had a ball. The amazing thing about children is that they don't know that they "can't" or "shouldn't" do things when they have a handicap of any kind. He is not letting having casts on both legs keep him down, BRAVO Jamie, your nani loves you to pieces!
We spent most of the day yesterday at the Simply Pediatrics outpatient clinic for my youngest grandson Jameson. Jamie needed to have his casts put back on. He was born with club feet. It was a hard decision and I think his mom was more distressed then he was. Jamie turned 1 in August.
While sitting in the waiting area we heard this awful screaming and sure enough it was Jamie, his mom went running to the recovery room (he needs to be put under for the casting and un-casting process due to a rare skin disease he was born with). Anyway, bless his little heart, he was completely distraught with waking up and seeing all these strangers standing over him. It took us awhile to calm him down.
Last time (he has had casts off and on from Dec. 2007 - July 2008) he was just learning to sit up and try to move around. Was not a happy camper being limited in his movements, so we were really concerned that this was going to be monumental now that he was trying to walk, crawled like maniac and pulled himself up on EVERYTHING!
Well the saying that "kids bounce back fast" is so true! By last night he was sitting up by himslef again and CRAWLING! With casts on both legs! He was his old laughing, smiling, chatting self again! Whew!!!! God Bless my baby boy! Pictures are comin!
We found a new place to take the kiddos called Jungle Java. What a fun place for kids to run, jump, climb and just be kids. Came home and finally did a layout! Yeah!! I'm excited because my daughter asked me to design a paper for Jungle Java that she could use for her layouts. I did and then decided to ask the owner of JJ if they would like to buy my papers and sell them at their location, they said yes!!! So here is the unveiling of the newest paper in the My Town Series complete with my own layout!
I am retired for the second time in my life and have started a home business. Did I say retired? I design and sell scrapbooking papers.
My passions are my family, my papers, scrapbooking, card making, traveling, reading (when I get the chance) and hanging out with friends.
