Another LO

Here's a LO I did for an old friend of mine...well not old as in she is old, but in that we have known each other for about 26 years. It's of her and her boyfriend. She really loved it when I showed it to her. I'm glad :)

Some more LOs

Here are two more LOs I did today. I really love the one with Mikey. I made my own overlay frame using a transparency, my AL flourish stamps, and Stazon ink. I think it came out pretty awesome! The second one I did is of me and my sis with a friend we have known since we were 7 years old! That's 26 years! WOW!! I guess she's more like family than just a friend. We spent some time together on Saturday and had a blast! I know the paper I used on that LO is kind of outdated, but can you believe I had NEVER used it until today??? I think it looks pretty good mixed with the other two paper lines. Anway, thanks for looking. OH and FYI, Miguel liked his LO and didn't say anything about the flowers! LOL :)

Another LO

This is a LO I did today with a pic of Miguel at the river this past weekend. It was a scraplift of a LO on 2 Peas. I wonder if Miguel will mind that I put flowers on his LO?? LOL :)

Another quick LO and a better pic of my new hair :)

I did this LO pretty quickly yesterday. I was inspired by a LO in the sb.com gallery by my friend thecircleguru (Ali). I am constantly stalking her gallery for inspiration and ideas. She does the most beautiful LO's ever!! :)

This is just a different pic of me with my new haircut. I'm really liking it! And it's so darn easy to fix too. It took SOOO long to dry all that hair I had before! HUGE difference in time! I think that I will grow it out and donate it again. I'm sure it would take me about a year and a half though, but it is well worth it!

FINALLY...some LO's

I've been scrapping since I came back home....LOL!! The first two LO's I did at my mom's house while we were over there. We had taken Elijah to eat at the Rainforest Cafe for his birthday. It was SO neat there! The food was good...I wouldn't call it great...a bit overpriced IMO, but the atmosphere was awesome! Lij loved it! And we all had such a great time so it was worth it. That whole day, we did stuff just for him. I took him to Wal Mart and we both had breakfast at the McDonald's in there. Then I got him a camo comforter set for his new twin bed and a lava lamp for his room, we went and got his hair cut, then we went to play putt putt golf, then we had dinner, then we went to this cool mirror maze thing downtown across the street from the Alamo. He had such a great day!

This last LO I started yesterday and finished up this morning while I was waiting for it to be time to go out and wait for the school bus. I took that pic the day before we took Elijah out for his birthday . We had a cake for him at my mom's house and he got to open his gifts. It's so funny. Him and Matthew are sometimes hanging off of each other...literally and Mattie calls them BFFs...LOL I think it's funny...but cute!! LOL

I started another LO with a pic of Mikey at the zoo, but I haven't finished that one yet. I'm really liking it so far. I'll post that later.

My Hair

This is me with my new haircut. Not the best pic of me, but there it is! I really love it! And the color isn't too drastic from what I had already. I'll try to get a better pic.

It's been a long time coming

My goodness, it's been a long time!! It was a busy last part of summer. Well, maybe not so much busy, but we were staying at my mom's who doesn't have a computer and I ended up taking scrap stuff over there, but never really got the chance to do anything except for one 6x12 LO that I will upload later when I take a pic of it. When we came back from my mom's because Lij was starting school, I had the job of putting all the stuff we had all taken over there, back in its proper place. Then Miguel started his vacation and we were hardly at home. We got so much done including cleaning out and straightening the garage. We got to go out ALONE together and spend time together on SO many days and nights thanks to my mommy who had also taken her vacation on those same days for that very reason...so we could leave Mikey with her. Thanks Mom!! :) We also did family stuff....we took Mikey to the zoo, Chuck E. Cheese, we went to the river. Sorry to say that Lij missed out on that stuff since he was in school. We had a great nine days together and I am going to miss him terribly because I know that I will not get to spend that much time with him for a good while :( :(

Anyway, I finally did it!! I cut my hair and donated it to Locks of Love! I was a bit scared and nervous about it. Not because I didn't want to do it. Mostly just because I didn't know how short it was going to be and if I was going to like it. But I did it and at first it was shocking to see how much hair was cut off and how short my hair is now, but it's a really cute cut and Miguel just LOVES it!! Which is the best part of it!! LOL :) He had been wanting me to cut my hair short FOREVER and this was the perfect time. I colored it too and I am really loving it! Plus it is not so darn hot with all that hair and this horrible heat!!

I finally did a LO today. Gosh, I was itching to get something done!! I am really loving the way this one came out! I hope I get some more done. I have tons of cool pics to scrap . And I just got the new CK and Scrapbooks Ect issues and saw lots of stuff I want to copy and try.

Lij is back in school, but had to be sent to another school because his grade was capped :( But guess what? The bus he has to take to the new school which by the way is not THAT far and is very nice too, stops right in front of our house!! Going AND coming...he gets left right on our lawn!! How awesome is that??!!? Now on days that are cold or rainy or whatever, I don't have to take Mikey out or worry that we will all get wet or be cold, ect. It's amazing the way God makes some things work out for the best :) :)

Hmmm...what else?? Can't think of anything else to write at the moment, but I will be back. Mikey is quiet and I have to see what this kid is up to!! LOL
