Baby Memory Box

I thought this box would go great with Baby Tanner's album, so I used more of the retired Manhattan Designer Paper for the trim of the top of the box. I used the Felt Chocolate Chip ribbon from last year's Winter Mini around it also. LOVE that ribbon! I cut out the letters using my BIG SHOT and The SERIF ESSENTIALS ALPHABET (p.199 in the catalog). I used left over thick cardboard from something and then used Modge Podge to attach the Chocolate Chip paper to the top. The letters were also cut using the Big Shot. I put another layer of Modge Podge on top before I stuck them down. The photo box is from Micheals.

Rock-a-Bye Boy - Baby Album

This has been a year of baby boys for my girlfriends! I ordered the Rock-a-Bye Boy Simply Scrappin' kit before it was retired to do 2 of the albums. This was the first kit I had tried out and I loved it - everything coordinated - the textured cardstock, Designer Paper, and you got tons of embellishments! I finished 2 baby albums and cards to match with the kit. I did add some more solid colored cardstock and in this album I also used the retired Manhattan Designer Paper since the baby's room is brown/blue. I definitely will be getting more Simply Scrappin' Kits to do albums.

This page has a poem about a lock of baby's hair and a cello bag to hold it. Now I need to get inspired to get an album done for Kayley, my baby who will be 8 this Oct.

I also decorated a Baby Memories box for little Tanner. I'll post that tomorrow! Loving my Big Shot for that one!! :)

My Birthday at Disneyland - of Course!!

With Disneyland's special this year, I couldn't resist going on my birthday (July 14)! We have Annual Passes, so you get to choose from different perks on your birthday instead of getting in for free. I choose the $69 Fun Card!! I can't wait to spend it! We were too busy this past trip to take time to shop, so it will have to wait until our next trip. (hopefully, next week before school starts!) :)

Here we are on the tram to Downtown Disney!

Kayley and Max at CA Adventure

I had to get my picture with either Mickey or Minnie on my birthday!! Here we are at CA Adventure.
We met up with a friend of mine from jr high/high school at Disneyland on the 15th. We found each other on Facebook. It had been 19 years since we had seen each other! We had a fun day and a great lunch at Oggi's before we had to head home.

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world.
Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
