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!!! :)

  6. I know this is almost impossible, but relax and try not to stress. Drink water!!! I hope your Doc is nicer than mine. I HATED hearing you know they are nothing I can do to help you, we'll have to wait and see how it turns out. I could almost slap them. They will probably want you in for an ultrasound right away.

  15. Okay, first of all I love all your creations, and OMG CONGRATS!!! I will keep you in my prayers and be thinking good thoughts. My friend I used to work with had like three or four miscarriages before she finally had her baby girl, but her body was acting as if the baby was a foreign object attacking her body or something. She just had to give herself a shot in the abdomen every day for her whole pregnancy to have her little girl, and now she's got two beautiful children!! I am so happy for you! Love, Jess
