Take a deep breath

Life is a constant adventure. I am reminded of this often. :grin: Note to self... savor the moments. Scrapping allows me to savor some moments retroactively. Here are some from the last few weeks:







This is one I made to go along with my blog post for the Scrap Matters team blog. I am trying to keep my hobby from becoming an obsession. Darn the Type A in me. They say your gift can also be your vice....

My sister Gina visited for a week, and we had a blast. Amanda had quite an eventful week, having turned five (my baby is five!!!!) and getting her four top front teeth extracted (nerve damage). She is back to her normal chipper self.

Awesome LO's.
I love checking out your blog... it is always so pretty! Thanks for the sweet words about Sela on my blog. I actually entered her in the Baby Gap contest this year.. but we didn't get picked. Maybe it is all for good... I don't want her to know how dang cute she is!
