Bloggy Giveaways

Thanks for playing! Contest is over :( See this post for the winner!

Shannon is hosting another Bloggy Giveaway carnival this week! I had so much fun signing up for free stuff last time that I've decided to be on the giving end this go around. I've got some GDS money burning a hole in my pocket, and I'd love to give one happy digi-scrapper a $10 gift card! If you are a digi-scrapper, a digi-scrapper wannabe, or know someone who is, leave a comment on this post before Groundhog Day (Feb 2). I'll use a random number generator to choose a winner!

Round 4

This is my entry for the final round of the GDS Supreme Team contest. I'm not sure it's one of the top 12, but I finally worked on it long enough to make it something I was proud to post. I just kept hearing Tim Gunn's voice in my head, "Make it work!" There are some REALLY fantastic layouts - everyone is so talented. I especially love this one and this one, but there's not a bad one in the bunch!

Days 12-18

I don't know why I have such a hard time when it comes to posting these pictures! So, catching up again, here are days 12 thru 18. We got "tasks" for most of these days, so I tried to stick to those.

Day 12 - Caden's ear on Saturday
Day 13 - Blessing day - obviously! Jacque got him this towel from IKEA and he loves it!
Day 14 - "Chaos" - all 28 pounds of it (he had a baggie on to collect a urine sample - 0 for 2 so far)
Day 15 - "5" - the minimum number of goldfish Caden tries to shove in his mouth at once
Day 16 - "Cold" - my Chai Creme Frappucino - good thing they built a Starbucks on the corner!
Day 17 - "Bright" - this is my one cheat for the year (HA!). I didn't take any pics on Thursday, but this one is from our trip to the park with Kourtney & McKenna on Wednesday afternoon.
Day 18 - "Green" - lettuce from the produce co-op this week

My Boy

I guess I forgot to post these two layouts using Theresa's Birthday Boy kit. Lots more to come of Theresa's stuff as she has oh-so-nicely agreed to let me be on her creative team! Yipee!

And this is one I finished today. It's simple, but I like it.

Supreme Team Round 2 Layout

I stole this picture of Kourtney & McKenna off Kelly's blog because I needed a girly picture to use with this kit. Hope you like it, Kelly!

Day 11

Caden woke up with a really swollen ear this morning. I assumed he got bit by something, but I couldn't see a bite mark anywhere so I was kind of freaked out. I took him to the doctor this morning and she said it was in fact a bite and just to watch for signs of infection. She had Dr. Flicker come and look at it since he is on call tomorrow (in case we need to go back). He walked in, laughed, and said, "It looks like he's signaling to make a left turn!" Ha!!

Day 10

Shortly after a fall on the tile and a subsequent fat lip.

I should've taken a picture to piggyback off my one yesterday (the wagon). We opened it up today to put it together and there is a big dent in the wagon, and part of the paint is even chipped. Boo. Packed it all back up.

Anywho, here is mine for today. We went on a walk this afternoon and I got lots of good pictures, so it was hard to choose. I chose this one just b/c it is a little different. I have no idea who Serena is, but she left her mark in the neighborhood!

Playing Catch Up

My picture from Day 8: A new wagon on our doorstep!

Okay, so I didn't do so well with posting everyday. Didn't even make it the first week. I did take pictures, I just didn't put them here. So in an effort to catch up, here's a layout I made to commemorate the first week of Project 365!

I'll be back later with picture for today...we're going outside to play! It's a beautiful day!

Supreme Team IV, Round 1

There are over 150 people trying out for 12 (!) spots on the Supreme Team this time. I haven't seen all the layouts, but the ones I have looked at have me nervous. They are awesome! Too bad former Supremes don't have an automatic in (of course, then they'd be stuck with most of us forever!). Anyway, here's my LO for round one. I was going to use a pic of Caden in the Kansas snow, but it didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped, so I ended up revamping a little and used the pic I took of him yesterday.

This is my "Christmas Clutter," on the list to put away tomorrow!

And one of sweet baby Caden for good measure.

Day 2 of 365

It was a tough call between these two...

Project 365

January 1, 2008

Amy has started up a challenge at GDS to take a picture every day of the year. I figured I'd play along and while I was at it, make sure I take a picture of Caden every day too. I suppose sometimes they will be one in the same, but here are my two pictures for the first day of the year! The 1st is always self-portrait day...ugh...1 down, 11 to go!

My friend/former youth pastor Kevin, who spent the night at my house while trying to recover from his 3 day canoe trek thru the Everglades:

And one of baby Caden:

It's fun to see everyone's pictures and put faces with names, but I think it's pretty obvious to everyone that if there were a best picture award, Beckie would get it!!

Got Wheels?

Here are two pages using Amy Leigh's Got Wheels? cute!
