Boo-tiful YOU Layout & Halloween Cards

The BOO-tiful LO from the latest YouTube Video... Plus...

Rainee wanted to send your cousins and her papa a Halloween card so we sat down and made a couple...

The spiders are circles punched from card stock with googley eyes and we put them on that great Martha Stewart Spider Web Felt Ribbon. Legs with the circle punch just like we did in the video.

The mummy is black chipboard, covered with medical gauze strips and stickers for the eyes!

She had fun doing them. Super easy!

New adventure...

As of yesterday, I am now a full time 'stay-at-home-mom'. This is something I've been praying about for a while... Since January our company (The Los Angeles Times) was bought out by a billionaire... and with so many things changing... I didn't want to continue working for a company who didn't care about people - and just - - the bottom line...MONEY!

If you've read any of my previous posts... the changes weren't great... my life was turned upside down... it effected not only me, but my family... so much so that I've been in the emergency room and on stress leave.

So while on stress leave my big boss calls me to find out if I'm still interested in the buy out... I said yes... and thinking it's going to happen when I go back to work next week... she calls to tell me it was happening now... while I was on the phone with her...

It was a bit of a shock... but definetly a blessing...

So now we see what the Lord has in store for us... definetly staying home with Rainee... and doing some freelance... and hopefully doing something more with scrapbooking... but who knows what the day or should I say what 'everyday moments' can bring...

All I know right now is... I'm thrilled to be a sahm...

A new member to our family...

So is morning when Rainee woke up the first thing she said was,
"I'm going to get a dog today mom!"
and of course I said,
"Go talk to your dad." and he said,
"Yeah, we can check that out today"...
I didn't think Steve was really serious, and I don't think he actually thought we'd find one TODAY... but it happened.... after months of prayer and looking for the right dog... we finally got a dog today! His name is Champ... he's a Lab and Rainee is in love with him... and of course I had to share my newest photos of her with Champ... and I have to say they are adorable!!

Welcome to the family... Champ!!!
