Since I started this blog I have thought about what kind of fun prize contest I could have. I finally came up with one! I have some great news to share and I want make a little contest out of it.

First off, the great news.....I quit smoking!!!! Can ya believe it? I smoked for years! And it has been 2 weeks since my last puff! I am so excited about this, but also scared, I can't keep up with it. So this is where I need your help. Post a comment of encouragement, to help me stay on the right "non-smoking" path and help me get through the rest of my first "non-smoking" month. You can only post once. and have until April 3rd to post. On the 4th I will randomly choose a winner and send you a wonderful scrappy prize!! So who wants to help me get through the next two weeks??

Mommy's Chapstick

I created this LO for a Challenge over on the All Moments Remembered site.
We had to incorporate those word quote bubbles in our LO. At first I did not think I would be able to come up with something, until I came across this photo and thought it would be perfect. Gotta love my dog Rigley, he just makes any LO, POP!!

I used Piggy Tales-paper, Cricut-CU, Printed out the quote bubbles.

If only I could be queen every weekend.... ok back to reality! I already posted the Shad fishing double LO.
Here is, oh this is so sad to admit, but here is Halloween LO's from 06 and 07, if I wasent sick of looking at orange I would have done 08's too. Yep I am a little behind on my scrappin.

Crafty Day

Yesterday i was cleaning out my scrap room and made a pile of things for my daughters to have. They both decided to get a little crafty with their new stash. My oldest made these cute "Free Passes" for me. I thought it was so sweet! A free hug, A day of Quiet, Dinner! She really put some thought into some of the things she could do to brighten my day.

My youngest took some scraps and made these cute LO's. She just loves the photo of her cousin taking a nap with our dog.
I am so proud of both of them, and I'm glad they enjoy being crafty.
