Happy Friday everyone!!!

I had my second doctor's appointment this past Wednesday. We saw the gestational sac & yolk sac starting to form on the ultrasound!!! I'm a little over 5 weeks. There was another little spot that showed up. The doctor said it could be a small blood spot....or a twin that was starting/trying to form. WOW! We will find out more on the 27th. The doctor said we should be able to hear the heartbeat then!!! It's so great to hear GOOD news for once!!! I'm trying to stay calm and not to stress. Easier said than done!!!

Tomorrow Scott & I celebrate our 1 year anniversary! It seems like we have been married for 20 years!!! Hehehe!!! ;) He is taking me to Red Lobster...mmmmm mmmmm!!! We have so much to be thankful for right now!!! :)

Scrappy news!!!

Be sure to check out Citrus Tree for the January Challenges!!!

Here is my layout for the sketch challenge!!!

Have a great weekend all!!! :)

Happy Thursday everyone!

The new January kit at Citrus Tree Studio is available for purchase!!!

"Victorian Romance"

This layout is of my sweet friend Beth & I. All products used are from the January kit!

My dad & I. All products (except for the staple) are from the January kit!

A little tag book.

Each tag on the front reads:
5 reasons why I love you
8 places we love to eat at
9 things we couldn't live without
2 of our favorite gifts from each other
4 of our favorite songs

The back of the tags lists each reason, place, etc.

A card I made for Scott. I wrote something special on each tag. :)

The PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT at Citrus Tree. It's the 7 Gypsies Artist Tray. I had so much fun altering this tray! I have it hanging in my living room now!!! :)

A New Year's Surprise!!! :)

Hi all!

I hope everyone had a great New Years!!!

I have some exciting news to share...

I found out New Year's Day :) I'm happy,excited, scared, worried...I'm feeling all the emotions right now! Some of you know about my miscarriage history (I have had 2 in the past year) & that we have been trying to conceive again. I will be calling the doctor ASAP Monday morning.

We want to have a baby so bad...please pray for us!!! Third time is a charm ;)

A big thanks to everyone who participated in the New Year's Crop at Citrus Tree Studio!!! We had so much!!! Here are a few things I created for the crop!

I created this layout for a challenge where we had to use 3 pictures and at least 3 circles.

This was created for the "Old School" Challenge! :)

I created this for a challenge where we had to cluster our embellishments together and use white space!

And this was for the ATC Challenge!!!

Have a great week everyone!!! :)

A Wonderful Christmas!

I hope everyone had a great holiday! We sure did! Before I share all the Christmas pictures with you I want to show you some sneaks from the January kit at Citrus Tree Studio!

This kit is beautiful! It goes on sale January 5th, so save the date!!!

Here are pics from Christmas day at Mom's house!

Mom and my stepdad Tim opening up the Wii we got them! Mom has seen that it's a Wii, Tim doesn't know yet...

They were so excited. Mom was mad at me for buying it but not for long! Hehehe ;) I think they are having a Wii party on NYE. Seriously. Haha!

Mom & Tim pushing Scott's present in the living room. We said it was Tim's. I bought him a big toolbox from Sears that he wanted soooo bad. I figured it would be obvious if I wrapped it and had it by our tree.

Scott's reaction when he found out it was his!


That's his mad face. A good mad though :)

Christmas Eve Pictures!

Yay! Got my pink laptop from Scott :) Please ignore our couch, I know it doesn't match. We need a new one!

Scott loves Family Guy & Monopoly. Perfect gift!

WOW!!! He bought me the Cricut!!! I can't believe I got a laptop AND the Cricut.

And 2 cartridges! He did so good! I also got the tool kit and mats! Who knew he could shop! Haha!

A camera bag, I LOVE it!

We had to have A Christmas Story on :)

He loves his new tools!

Can't believe he got this too. I had one a few years ago but sold it. It really works. I have been doing 100 exercises on it each night :) I'm hoping for a six pack, haha!

More tools!

I have no idea what I'm doing in this pic.

A new shelf for my scrapbook room!

We also got each other more Wii games and clothes!

Snickers, Rascal & Orangey received gifts from Santa :) I didn't get a pic of Orangey though :( I know, I'm a bad mom. He's living on our back porch still. I bring him in every so often to let the girls get used to him.

Snickers playing with her new toys!

Woops, another picture of Scott, hehe! More tools!

Rascal & her stocking!

That toy is super cute!

So, as you can see, we are all spoiled rotten :) Nothing wrong with that, right?!?!

On to more scrappy stuff!

I made these cards for the Posh Blog!

I am in love with this Crate Paper line. The colors are awesome!!!

Whew, sorry for the long post! Have a great day!

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!!!

Scott and I have exchanged a few gifts because we can never wait! We are going to have our "official" Christmas on Christmas Eve. I can't wait ;) Anyways, I got him the New Super Mario Bros for the Wii and he LOVES it. OK, MORE than loves it. He has played this game for 6 hours straight. I really love it too! But I don't have the time to sit in front of the t.v. for 6 hours, haha! I love being able to play with him. Up to 4 can play at once, how cool is that?!

It is very addicting! Just ask Scott :)

Scott got me a new Wii game too. Harvest Moon. I have been wanting this game for *SO* long! Now, if he would stop playing it, maybe I could get addicted!!! I told him we need to buy another t.v. and Wii just for me! He's such a Wii hog!

I also got a new paper trimmer!

I love it!

We still have about 20 gifts to exchange with each other. Crazy huh?! I'm serious, there is AT LEAST 20. We really went all out this year!!!

Check out this layout I made for my DT over at Posh!

And here's another new one of Scott & I!

And don't forget about the New Year's Crop going on over at Citrus Tree Studio! Check out the forum for all the details!!!

Have a great day everyone! :)
