Holy Cow! It's a Girl

I'm your friendly guest blogger - no, not like your elementary substitute teacher. My super duper pal Lisa had an adorable baby girl Tuesday morning. Elsie Madison has an inch of soft- I mean the softest-sandy brown hair at 7 pounds 5 ounces and 19 1/2 inches. Mom is doing great, wow to be a woman- I mean you go thru the incredible physical upheavel of having the baby and then wham you have a baby that needs all you attention. I think God forgot to stick in recovery. We are unbelievably blessed and there now is no doubt about it - I am the luckiest guy in the world.
Thank you so much, I mean really Thank you, for all your kind words and prayers. We all have quite a bit to be thankful for...take a minute today to thank the big guy above for all your blessings.

Still Waiting

Babies come when they want to
I know but,
the wait is driving me crazy.
Under a week until my due date
and I'm excercising -yes
drinking plenty of water-yes
resting -yes
major contractions -no.
I would like to have a Natural Child Birth
without pitocin -which I had last time.
Jake was only 3 weeks late!
So everyday, like today,
I'm hoping to feel the pain!
I'm thinking of baking a chocolate cake
with chocloate frosting
and hot cocoa (80 degrees I'm not sure about this one)...
to seduce the baby into the world.
Am I the only one who thinks this is a good idea?

Sweaters by Grandmother-hope the weather gets cooler fast.

By the way, don't you love the new KI Lace Cardstock
and the Basic Grey and October Afternoon's brown rub-ons!

WOW -I love these sheer albums and tags. They are not totally transparent - they are frosted - great for someone intimidated with the clear look.

October Afternoon video

This is a new line we really wanted to add -the stamps are super high quality and detailed, just like Technique Tuesday.
The products are made in the USA which means less odors. When we open boxes of papers it makes a difference when less powders and chemicals are used to print them. We are an allergic family - as a lot of people today -so the less allergens the better. This is hard to find.

Our Winner Mia!

We had so much fun doing the $100.00 Contest.
We wanted to let you know a bit about our winner. Check out her journaling on her layouts -tres bien!

Where you're from?
I'm from a tropical island in the South Pacific called the Philippines and more specifically, the capital city of Manila. Scrapbooking here is relatively new but it's taking off with a bang!

What got you started scrapping?
I started scrapping last year when I wanted to find a nice and original gift to give to someone that wasn't bought in a store or something they might already have. A former co worker showed me her scrapbook and I thought "Hey, this is a neat idea!" I then came across a LSS and ventured in and needless to say after that I was hooked. I think scrapbooking came natural to me since I have an art & design background so I've pretty much been creative most of my life.

How much time do you spend scrapping?
Try all the time! LOL! I eat, drink, think & sleep scrapping! I love it that much!

Where do you "start" on a layout?
Since I'm a visual person I usually start with the photos and then go on from there. But sometimes I may mix it up and start with a nice piece of patterned paper.

Thank You Mia!
