April Desktop Calendar

Digital Candy always has some great challenges going on for digital scrapping. It keeps me motivated, so I just love it. Every month they give a kit to make a desktop calendar out of. I really loved how it came out this month, especially since I showcased my pretty kitty, Pebbles.

I'm so excited to be heading home tomorrow. It doesn't seem like it's really going to happen, but I already paid for my tickets, so I guess I had better go. HAHA! My sister from Minnesota whom I haven't seen in almost 2 years will be there also, so it will be like a big reunion. My dad has no idea that I'm coming, so I can't wait to surprise him!

An Easter LO

This Easter was nearly a bust. For years, my little sister has been keeping us all young and entertained with her passionate hunt for the Easter eggs. We were certain she was going to be "too old" this year, but she surprised us and said she wasn't. But Easter morning, she woke up sick. She didn't eat any ham or cranberry sauce at lunch (her favorite Easter treats) and she actually took a nap or two! Very strange behavior for her. She still insisted she'd hunt eggs as long as we hid them inside. So, we did, and she hunted. It was enjoyable until she got to the last few hard ones. Then she was just plain exhausted, so I helped her get the last ones into her basket and then she took another nap. What an Easter to remember! At least I remembered to take a few shots, even though there isn't much excitement to them.

Feb. and March calendars

So I got behind on Lacey's calendar challenge. I'm caught up now, and hopefully I'll stay that way. Here's my Feb. and March pages...only 9 more to go!

I'm headed home to Indiana on a quick trip to visit my dad come Monday. I can't wait. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor on March 17 (his birthday) and we've had a bit of a rocky road since. This is my first chance to get home and give him a hug. Luckily, they're feeling better about his prognosis everytime he goes to the doctor. They still don't know if it's cancer or not, and won't really know much more for at least 6 weeks. But for now, it's not as big a worry as it originally was...thank goodness!

A challenge entry and other random stuff...

There's a challenge at Digital Candy to scrap the music you love. It's to go into a "book about me" when you complete all of them. I missed the first few challenges, only found this site recently. But I thought this was such a neat idea! Here's my take. I have a very diverse taste in music, even though this doesn't make it seem like I do...haha. I just always find myself reaching for the same CDs when nothing else is pleasing me, and these just happen to be the girls...

That also made me remember this tag I made. Well, I've made several, but this is my most recent one. Haven't made one since...don't know when I will make my next...just thought I'd share.

On other news...I went to the doc yesterday morning to see if the Clomid dice. I have to up my dose...I'm sure I'm going to become such a lovely person to be around soon...I hope it's all worth it!

An Alpha Freebie

I started out making a kit with wild and funky colors...finally talked myself out of it. But during the course of it, I made this alpha. I thought it's too cute to just throw away, so I'll pop it on here for free. Enjoy!

Through the Years

Scrapping at Jodi's on Sunday was a blast. I only got 3 pages done, though. LOL. I was too busy chattering and helping my friend's with theirs I guess. But, all together we completed 8 pages in 4 hours. So not too shabby. It was the first of many days like that, I hope. But, of course, I haven't taken any photos yet! (Shame on me!!) So, no new paper scraps to share yet. But I did make this cute digi page of me and my sister for a challenge over at Digital Candy. I used a kit from Digital Divas' Design called Country Cottage.

The challenge was to create a "timeline" with your photos. So, I found that pretty simple with my old photos. My sister and I had photos done every year from birth until she turned 18, I think...somewhere around there. Then we started getting lax about it and get them done every so often. Ah well...such is life when you grow up, I guess.

Well, this morning was such a pretty morning with fresh fallen snow and the sun shining...I couldn't resist snapping pictures before I headed off to work. The dogs were being extra cute, so I took a ton of them. I scrapped a few this afternoon. The kit is from Tatic and called Funny Nature.

Tomorrow afternoon I'm going to a friend's house to scrapbook with no interruptions and room to spread out. I need to pack up some papers and things to work with yet today so I'm all ready to go. I can't wait. It's been too long since I've paper scrapped. Then I'll have to take pictures and get them all uploaded...haha.
