new one

So, Valentine's day is over. Time for a new header.... I really like doing them, not super hard and I know that I will change it again soon. They are not scrapbooks, I won't have to look at them for years to come and wish I had done something different!

january, november & december

only 3 more pages left to go in my year in review album... I am stuck though. I have a lot of kits, but not one that I am inspired to do with those 3 months. why? Why? WHy? WHY?! I want to get it done so I can work on the million of other scrapbook projects I have to do. I have a project for someone that needs to be done in like 2 weeks.... Maybe I need to give up my year in review project for a few days and come back to it.... That sounds good. Enjoy!

paper {don't tell my computer}

Sometimes I think I miss paper scrapbooking. Then I do a project that involves glue, paper and ribbon. I then remember why I love digi scrapping. It is not a whole process of getting 5 million things out for one project and taking over the dining room table. But, sometimes I need to be away from the computer screen.... I guess I will have to just get the stuff out and take over. But, I really enjoyed having my best friend from high school over last night. We got out my cricut and cut our little hearts out. I knew I had a few things I had wanted to do (some since October!) so I left it all out. Good thing dh stayed at work last night (and the night before, but that is a different story!).

This was supposed to be done before V-Day, but I just didn't do it... Oh well. The supplies
Finished product!

Half way through the frames Rachel called me. Then she and Olivia came over half way through my next project.
I got this great idea. And made some of my own changes... What do you think?

Rachel made one for Olivia.... Here is all three... Enjoy!

Sorry it is sideways, I can't get my computer figured out just this moment.... Once I get it fixed I will post a new photo.

I have been working on our 2008 year in review album and I am just stuck. I really want to get it finished and I just can't. What is my problem? I have 3 months done, I just finished July. it isn't my favorite, and I will probably change it.... I have also done dd's valentines for her party on Friday, so that counts for something!

what is in a name?

So, over at the dailydigi Janet had another template.... Love it! She wanted us to write about how someone got the name they have. I wrote about our dog, Jack. It is such a sweet story. I am so glad to have him in our family. Everytime I see him I am reminded about a wonderful day in our family life. It brings tears to my eyes to think about.... Enjoy!

one day {dd} came to me and said,"my daddy is going to bring me a little black dog named jack from iraq." what?! the whole thing rhymed, but i don't think she noticed. when talking to {dh}, he said we should do it. i got to work quickly and found a really cute miniature schnauzer. the plan was to have the kids spend the night at the christensen's house the night {dh} came home from iraq. we needed time to be {us} after not seeing each other for 9 months. the next morning, we met the breeder and got jack. when we got back to the christensen's, i went inside to get the kids while {dh} waited outside with jack. {dd} was so excited to see the dog. but the best part was when she saw her daddy. she threw herself into his arms and wouldn't let go! this was so special to all of us. what is even better is the little black dog named JACK from iraq. we couldn't have asked for a better dog!
