New pictures of Ellie

The weather has been so great that over the past weekend I took a blanket into the backyard for Eleanor to lay on. She loved being outside. I had to take lots of pictures too :)

There are also some favorites from the last week. I was better about picking up my camera this past week :)

This one cracks me up! The dog had to check out the new baby :)

I love scrapbooking

I think it is funny how my style of scrapbooking has changed so much the past few months. I loved one photo layouts with little journaling and then all of a sudden I wanted more. More pictures, more words. I was taking a ton of pictures to only use one on a layout. So much of the story was being left out. So I have changed my focus. I wanted to add in what I had taken out due to trends. So bring on the pictures and let there be a story told :)

Here are the kits from Aren't they gorgeous!

yummmmmmmmmm salsa

Ok weird post but, we love salsa. We had a favorite for years but they stopped making it. SO we found a new one. Since moving we haven't found it. So the search was on. and low and behold. We found such goodness right at my favorite store. Target! That's right Target. They have their own brand Archer Farms. We have tried about 4 kinds and they have all been fabulous! So if you are in the market for some yummy salsa, Target is the place to go :)

My project 365 ......

Has kicked my fanny again. I am such a perfectionist. If I miss I just so oh well. I failed. I just need to move on. All I want is to have pictures to document our year. I don't need to have pictures for every single day to do that. I haven't picked up my camera for weeks. So I will now try to pick it up at least once a week.

Ellie Jayne is growing like a weed. 15 pounds. Rolls over both ways. Plays with toys. and much to my relief is starting to amuse herself and not be so fussy. Ahhhhh so much easier to get things done.

Here is the most recent picture I have ( which is 3 weeks old but still :))

and one of Ellie and I and one of Ellie and Lance on her 3 month mark

Hello is it me your looking for?

Ok weird me coming out. But I was listening to my ipod on shuffle and this little diddy redone by David Cook, last season of American Idol, just came on.

Ok. A scrappy share. I was very excited to be asked to do a layout for the blog. Valerie and Janna do amazing sketches.

new Stampin' Up goodies!

Here is a preview of the new mini catalog that comes out next month. They are showing the new Easter stamps and have those available to purchase early. Here is a link to the preview. Fun stuff. I just placed an order for some of the new stuff. Can't wait! and I read that they teamed up with Ellison to make embossing folders! They are larger than the cuttlebug. (glee!!!) They will be available later in the year. Now I am off to take a nap :)

I forgot to post my projects for you. We mostly vegged out this weekend. After being in the upper 70's on Friday it was very cold this weekend and on Saturday we woke up to a dusting of snow!

Here are my SD4U projects:

Have a great day!
