Kale is 4 months old!


My little Kale turned 4 months old Saturday. He got a new little cowboy shirt and a belt to go with his belt buckle from Uncle Aaron and "Aunt Karen". Isn't he adorable! He is just changing and growing so much so quickly. He loves to chew on his burp rag or any type of small little blanket. He loves to play with toys above his head and he is trying to roll over too! Kale is just a bundle of joy for all of our family to enjoy!

Just Us Girls Challenge 24 ..... Flap Card

Pam is hosting a challenge this week to create a flap card. I chose to make a notepad cover so I could have something in my purse when I want to make a list. I'm big on lists so this comes in very handy. I'm in love with these new papers that I got at our local scrapbook store. Looks like spring to me! I used my Justrite stamps to create my name and that was all the stamping that I did. I purchased my little notepads from Papertrey and I made my own cover for my notepad. I placed one of my Mom's crocheted flowers to the bottom. I just love this and can't wait to use it. A little velcro circle keeps it shut right under my name. Here's a close up of my flower....don't ask me why it is flipped....google is doing something funny to me!

Thought I would show you how I made my flap....it's pretty high tech! I took my scoretape and traced around the outer edge and cut it out! Pretty inventive huh?~!


Here's a close up of my name.....again I don't know why it is flipped!


Hope all of you have a great weekend. Be sure to stop by the JUGS site and check out all the girls creations. Stephanie is our guest designer for this month so please stop by and see what she has created for you this week too. The JUGS girl's links are on my sidebar too. Thanks for stopping by!

JUGS 23 - Sketch with a Sponsor


This week Dana is the host for JUGS. She has an awesome sketch to share and a great sponsor, Dawn with W Plus 9 Design Studio. The set I chose to use today is called Funky Foliage. Be sure to stop by Dawn's blog and head to her store to see her great stamps! There is a chance to win 2 of her stamp sets for free....so hop over to JUGS to see how! You can check out all the other gals links too on my side bar and don't forget to stop and see our guest designer, Stephanie Kraft.
Today I have one of my very first scrapbook pages for Baby Kale. I'm so excited to get started on his book. I made a trip last weekend to a town about 45 minutes away from here to shop at their scrapbook store. This place is in a very, very small town that doesn't have much of anything, but they do have a great scrapbook store! I remember going there once about 5 1/2 years ago when I was pregnant with Ethan. I thought the place had closed, but it hadn't and they have such a great selection of paper. We headed that direction to see my brother-in-law and his fiance, but made plans to stop here along the way. I'm so glad that I did. This lady inspired me to get back into my scrapbooking. See I haven't done a whole lot really since Ethan got sick. I used to do a ton, but that really slowed me down, but she was talking about how theraputic scrapbooking can be and I have to agree. So.....I think I'm back, into scrapbooking that is.
Can you see the background paper that I made with the Funky Foliage oval. I love it. It went perfectly with my new paper that I got from the scrapbook store. It is a paisley and I just love any kind of paisley print. I used the dashed circles for my title letters. It just adds a little something to my page. I just love how this turned out and I think I have myself all ready to really get back into this hobby that I have loved for so long. I can look and look at my scrapbooks and never get tired of them. I have a ton finished from when Ethan was little and I'm so glad that I have them now.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm hoping to be back with more pages......I think I have enough pictures to last me a lifetime of scrapbooking!

More New PCS Digis!!!



So I think my "mojo" has left temporarily. I just couldn't get my card to come to me! I'm back to work this week so my mind is going several different directions, so I'll blame it on that this week! I love Melissa's new images as always. Isn't Lily so cute dressed as a little bunny! Be sure to check out the paisley paper that Kristin designed too for My Time Made Easy! I just love it. Be sure to check out all the PCS gals on my side bar and head over to Melissa's blog too! You can get all of these new digi images here! Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back on Sat morning with our JUGS challenge!

Having Fun with my Baby!

My Baby Kale is getting so big and is SOOO much FUN!! He is just one happy little guy most of the time. Last night we went out and got him a new jumparoo to play in. He seems to like it. I'm sure we'll get a lot of use out of this in the months to come . And here is Kale in an outfit that my friend Maria gave him. I think this had Kale's name written all over it when she saw it in the store.....isn't it adorable! He wasn't too crazy about the hat, but darn it looked cute!

Last night Kale got to try cereal from a spoon. He'll be 4 months on the 13th so I thought I would give it a whirl. He really seemed to like it. I can't wait to see how big he is at his next doctor's appt. According to our scales he is well over 16 pounds!

Hope these pictures bring a smile to your day!
