Happy Saturday....

Well... I am feeling a little better but also a little worse. I know that doesn't make much sense... but my throat is a lot better.. but now my lungs are burning when I cough... oy!! I slept in this morning until almost 10am... it was so nice... and SO NEEDED!! I am doing laundry today and just hanging in my scraproom! I am finishing my challenge I started a few days ago. I just love that I am doing them again with my friend Jennifer! I just LOVE her!!

Here is my last layout! I just LOVE how it turned out... there is just something about it that makes me really happy! You know.. that just happens sometimes!! I used some yummy Paper Trunk papers... they ROCK!!
Ok... well, that it for now... I'll post a few more layouts and some pictures soon! Have a great weekend!!
Hugs!! Janice

A fun Card give-a-way....

Check out my friend Karen's blog here for a chance to win some awesome cards!! She's a rockin' hot scrapper and is kickin' some creative booty... better hurry its only on til Saturday!!

In other news...

Our 1st monsoon started a fire that has been out of control for a day now. Of course, fires are always bad.. but this one is hared to reach. Its not really close to us but its close enough for the smoke to be killing me... its mostly because what's burning is what I am the most allergic to! Uggg... my chest is killing me, the throat is raw... its so NOT fun!

Well.. that's all I've got for today!!
More later.. and maybe some new layouts too!

Jack lost his 1st tooth!!

Yahoo!! It finally came out!! Jack lost his first tooth early this morning. It was 5:30am when he walked into our bedroom and said... "Dad... I lost a tooth! It was just out... look, it didn't even hurt"! It was so GREAT! He was very excited.. and we were relieved that it was finally out!! Its been loose for months... now, for the one next to it to go!! LOL! Its not that I want it to happen fast.. its just that his "adult" teeth have been in for months! Daddy calls him shark tooth all the time!! Here are some pictures I got tonight! He is excited that the tooth fairy will be visiting tonight too.... its already under his pillow in his "tooth holder" his Aunt Lori made him when he was a baby!!

Congratulations my sweet boy! You are growing up so fast!! I love you!!

Thanks for sharing our memories!!

Hey Friends...

Just stoppin' in here to update a little! I'm really trying to get better! Here are a few layouts I have done lately! I've had a little scrappy mojo going on! Thanks to my friend Jennifer and some awesome challenges too!

A couple of my Creative Team creations for June! Rockin' the Junkitz and Basic Grey... it was super fun!

I am lovin' Libby's AWESOME 6x12 challenges that she gives us @ Scrapbook Doodle!

I had a BLAST playin' with the Pink Pailsee Office Lingo... love it!

It doesn't seem like we have been on summer break for a month already! But... we have had some summertime fun! We went to CA to visit family for 9 days, had a few pool parties and even several sleepovers! I'd say for sure summer is HERE!! It also shows in the Arizona weather which today read in my car as 117... holy cow!!

More soon... love to you all!

It's been soooo long!!

I have been a bad blogger! I really want to be better.. but somehow it just seems to slip my mind! LOL!!

So... what's been going on since my last post? Well, Jack graduated from Kindergarten, Melissa from 8th Grade and Drew from Greenway High School! I had a blast doing photoshoots for them all!!

Jack's Baseball Team The Dragon's finished up their game schedule and we've been in California for over a week now. Adrian's 1st birthday, the birth of baby Ryan and a goodbye to Ma's cat - Simone has kept us busy here! We are going home tomorrow and getting back into our summer plans - which include lots of playdates with friends, bbq's and swimming!

Well.. I just spent the last half and hour trying to load picture here with no luck! I'll try again later.. but that's what's been going on in my world... besides Scrappin' and hangin' out @ scrapbook Doodle of course!!

I have to send a couple of shout outs too before I go:
#1 to my friend Manny seriving our country in Iraq... Love you friend... be safe... God is on your side!
#2 Kudos to my friend Jennifer who ran a 5K race last weekend.. her 1st ever!! Way to go.. I'm so proud of you!!
