A Boy and his Box

Here's the final layout for the night. This layout was inspired by my little one Kellen and was scraplifted from Julie Bonner from 52 sketches...52 weeks #48. This layout is of my little boy loving this little brown box. It doesn't matter what toys we have bought him, he'd much rather play with a box and his shoestring. Haahaha. Gotta love him!!!

Time 2 Lather Up

Here is my 2nd Layout!!!! Hope you Njoy!

Today has been one of those days that makes you want to cut yourself off from the rest of the world and do what makes you happy to focus on your muse. Scrappin makes me happy. Scrapping is my muse. Scrapping allows me to do what the infamous Whitley Gilbert said do on "A Different World"-Relax, Relate and Release. With that being said, I haven't been doing a lot of this lately and it seems like my life is spinning out of control full of long days and very short nights. Life is full of family obligations, work obligations and society and self inflicted obligations. But with all of these obligations to everyone else, we neglect ourselves; we neglect what makes us happy. So today, I am vowing to Relax, Relate, and Release. I am vowing to RELAX,take some "ME" time; at least 30 minutes a day just to relax. This can be scrapping for 30 minutes or just sitting in my scraproom for 30 minutes. Next I plan to RELATE. I will pour my lifes experiences (good and bad) into a page, I'm not guaranteeing a page a day but I will work toward my one page a week goal; after all Life's A Scrap.hahhaa. I crack myself up!!lol. Finally, I will RELEASE. I will not feel guilty about taking time to rejuvenate. I will allow myself to release control to others to help me during this time and know know that perfectly ok to have time to myself. Scrapping is important to me, to my sanity and starting today I will give it and myself more of that positive energy. Good night and Happy Scrappin!

Here is my completed layout from last week. I scraplifted this sketch from Julie Bonner. This was week #46 Layout from 52 weeks 52 sketches. This is a layout of two of my nieces who absolutely adore and annoy one another. The caption reads: "Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll be there.~Ami Li"

Its Fun to Watch My Two Guys Play!!!

Here are a few pictures I took this morning. I'm not really sure who loves playing the most Tre or Kellen. lol

A Wonderful Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year. It’s full of Family, Food, and Fun. In the past, thanksgiving has been a time of reflection. A time to reflect on all the wonderful blessings we have received throughout the year. As I sit here on the couch with the hubby, I feel overwhelmingly blessed and thankful. I am thankful that our paths and crossed with the newest member of the family; Kellen. Kellen is our foster to adopt son, and I must admit; Tre and I am in love already. His arrival has made this Thanksgiving particularly special, mostly because we were able to share this Family Holiday with him. In thanksgivings past, we have been grateful to have a wonderful family and wonderful friends to share the holidays with, but it always felt like there was something or someone missing. But, that was not the feeling this year. Since day one (approx. 2wks ago), he adapted and has adjusted perfectly with us; it’s like he was meant to be here. His arrival alone, has made this the best Thanksgiving ever. Things for him have not been the best, which ultimately, led him to be placed with us. I hope with all my heart that we can show him what love is and the meaning of family. On Thanksgiving day the house was full of love and family and it was wonderful to witness Kellen being part of all of it. I look forward to our future with Kellen and my hope is that he is finally HOME.
