Look Mom, It Changed!!

This is such a funny story, I had to share. Yesterday I got home from work & was in the kitchen trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Savannah, (the 13 yr old) came into the kitchen & said, "Hey, Mom you've got to see this. When I put this Gogurt in the freezer this afternoon it was pink, now it's blue. I wonder why." I pointed to the front of the Gogurt & said, "Maybe it's blue 'cause it says 'Blueberry Blast'!" We both had a good laugh about it. She's pretty cool about laughing at herself when she has these blonde" moments!! Which is nice because it wasn't always that way!!

And on another note, I dug up this old photo of Darien when she was 3 yrs old. She is just too cute!! I started the LO with the strips of paper & ribbons behind the photo & the swirly stamped corner, then I hit a creative block. Where to go from here? I tried more swirles & doodles, looked horrible. I tried some bows& tags, still didn't look right. So I went browsing the Digi Chick gallery, looking for inspiration ~ & I found it! Crazygirl's gorgeous LO caught my eye, so I lifted a bit of it. See her LO here & here's mine ~

I used my new kit My Sister's Faded Dress, ric rac & beige ribbon from my Moxie kit & swirly corner stamp by in obscuro

A Dogs Life

I have a bunch of pics of the dog the girls have taken. Litterly tons. I've actually had to delete some from my camera! (Thank goodness for digital!!) I'd rather scrap the girls, but Canon is a huge part of their lives, so I just had to do a LO. Many of the pics are him sleeping, because let's face it, a sleeping dog is soooo cute!!! So here is my LO using the yet un-named kit. (Want a chance to win it? Read the entry below.)
