Its good to be liked!

I hurt my back earlier this week and I was getting pretty grumpy and down by today. It had just been long know?

I met this lady on line at Dreamer...her name is Donna and I took an instant like to her. She seemed very sweet and nice and super talented too! Anyways we have been chatting on line and sending PM's and I was right she is very sweet and nice! Skip ahead to today....I am in my housecoat, getting the kids ready for school and it is 7:30am and there is a knock at my door...I'm thinking 'okay' its early and someone is gonna get a shock seeing my in my housecoat (think big terrycloth not little and silk lol) and there is a delivery guy with a BIG box for me...look what Darling Donna (my new nick name for her) sent to me...

See I told you she was talented! Can you believe the detail and work she put into these things just to send to me? Wow! I am flabbergasted. Thank you are sweet beyond words!

Teachers Valentines Day gifts....

For part of my DT project at Scrapbook Dreamer I altered a couple of Prima bottles into my kids teachers gifts...I think they turned out really cute! I used a 3 Bugs Smitten line (available at SBD) and bits and pieces

I used a pattern form Scrapbooks etc for the cute little owl!

If you want to alter some of your Prima bottles...visit dreamer here

Lovey Dovey....

This month over at Scrapbook Dreamer our design team projects were to deal with LOVE and AFFECTION....So I got to work with the 3bugs Smitten line! It was a lot of fun.

This layout is about Ty's crush on his cousin Morgan...she is a beautiful young girl who thinks that Tyler is fabulous!

And of course had to do a layout about Sally....

Although this was not for SBD project it is the month of love so I HAD to do one about the man I love...

The journaling is hidden behind the photo and reads...

That’s what Jon is…my LOVE! He is so many things to me that my love is the only word large enough to encompass everything I feel for him. He makes me feel beautiful even when I have messy hair and no make up on. He aggravates me beyond reason, and makes me so mad I wanna explode. He makes me feel desirable because he thinks I am perfect just the way I am, even with a few extra pounds and a few gray hairs! He makes me laugh so hard I almost pee my pants! He makes me feel like a wonderful mom even if there are days I feel like I won’t be winning any mother of the year awards. He makes me feel like I will never be alone…no matter what I can turn to him and he’ll always be there, that I have a partner in life that will help me whenever I need it. He makes me feel passion and desire for him to the point there are no words. He makes me feel like he feels all these feelings for me…he makes me feel loved….which is why he IS my love.
