It's the middle of February and this winter has long outlived its welcome. However, the days are getting noticeably longer and it's not pitch black when I leave in the morning any more.
This week, we take time to celebrate this special little lady. Her father and I did reflect a little on this significant milestone: half-way point till she is out of our house! LOL. I wonder if we will follow her or will she be a homebody and stay near us? Due to my own life's circumstances, I wonder about this more than I wonder about some other stuff. One day at a time, without trepidation, I tell myself. Changing diapers, potty training were hard stuff, but the teenager years are on the horizon. She is aware enough to let us know the other day that rough waters are ahead. And since she is a girl, she just might shout "I hate you" to us as a rite of passage!! Well, I can't wait! LOL.
Remember my dreadful skiing experience last week end? I had to resort to scrapbooking to cheer myself up as I put it in a blog post I did for Creating Keepsakes. Yes, sledding is a much happier experience, one which I would gladly do again soon! I am noticing that I really like mixing wild colors and papers together. I do like the result but my goodness there are some crazy colors going on here!
I used a Laina Lamb's Die-namics Story Starters for the strip die-cut. The title is an assembly from the Silhouette store.
I hope to be back soon. I received some amazing goodies from Close to My Heart that I am absolutely dying to try! Maybe by next post I will have a few things to share! Fingers crossed!
