Tag your it

Tag! My Turn
My friend Cheryl tagged me this morning so I'm gonna play along . . .We are supposed to post the 6th picture from the 6th folder in our photo files and then tag 6 more people and ask them to do the same. Since I'm just learning how to get to my photos, I was surprised at how easy I found this one:


This really is the name of the file and it explains it all. My grand babies wanted to fix my hair and once they got started Aunt Steve had to get hers done too. I'm glad you can't see me, I had every hair accessory we had left in my hair.

TOO fun and great memories.

OK . . .now I'm gonna tag ! Sherry , Madeline, Cindy, Claudia and The Scrapbook Shoppe . But I'm gonna change it up a bit, since I only have 5 Blogs I'm sending out to, I want you to do your 5th file and 5th picture. I can't wait to see what you got Ladies!!! If anyone else wants to play, feel free! Tag ALL your friends!

Card classes

This is one of the cards for my Easter class on March 28, 2009.

We will be making 6 cards, 3 different styles and 6 suprise items to help celebrate the Easter Holiday. If you go by the Scrapbook Shoppe you can see all of what we will be making. Don't forget to sign up.

Happy Birthday

I have some things I'm working on for a mothers day card class. Usually when I do a card class we make at least 10 cards. Well who needs 10 Mothers day cards? So Cheryl and I have decided we will still make 10 cards, But here is the switch. We will be making 2 Mothers day cards, a beautiful card holder with 4 cards to put in them as a gift for your Mother and Mother-in-law.
But until I unveil my creation, here is a card I made for a Young friend of mine, She was turning 13 and I wanted to make her something girly, but not childish. The Delight in Life sentiment will always remind her to enjoy her life to the fullest.

Happy Birthday

The last birthday of the month is my beautiful daughter Honesty. It's hard to believe our baby is turning 26! Time sure does fly when your having fun, and fun we have had!!!

Honesty all through our raising children I was most concerned for you, a girl so many things can happen to girls. But from the beginning you have proven time and again that you're not afraid of nothing. You set your mind on things and have gone for it. You may have had to pick yourself up and brush yourself off, with a few bruises and bumps, but you didn't care you just keep going. This may in part have to do with being raised with two brothers that didn't give you a minute to forget they were, "your big brothers". As I laughed my way through all the antics that you all pulled on one another, I sit back with a smile on my face and contentment in my heart. Knowing that with a little help from us you have grown into a wonderful woman that can take care for herself and hold your head up high. You can fight for what you want and know that the gashes and blood are only signs of the determination you have and it will all wash off and heal up eventually. Yet you are loving and caring and are there to help anyone who has been banged around themselves fighting for the things they want and you can be happy and proud for them just as you are proud of yourself. I love you Honesty, more than you can imagine. In my heart always you will always be my little girl, But the sparkle in my eyes is the woman you are today. Honesty you know your my favorite and will always be, you hold a place in my heart that no one will ever hold! I love you sweety and wish you the Happiest Birthday of all.

My Hunny

So the The next Birthday of the month is my Hunny. This year he turns 51, wow !! Hunny is an amazing man who has always put his family first. He has worked hard all his life to make sure I was able to stay home and raise our three wonderful children. I thank him soo much for the time that I had with them, I would have missed so much if I'd have had to work.
He made sure we went on a vacation every year on one salary. And he has taught my children so many things, it is amazing the stuff he knows. He is a Jack of all trades and the master of quit a few things. If you need him to do something or figure something out and he doesn't know how right off, if you will give him a day or two he will figure it out and come up with an answer. He is constantly learning and adding to his knowledge. Some things I love about him are, that he reads the Bible, dictionary, encyclopedias from cover to cover over and over when he gets the whim. He has a serious nature and I'll catch him trying not to smile. I absolutely love that he is an amazing grandpa!!! My kids say we switched roles from when they were kids lol. These are just a few things I love about him, he is an amazing man!!
30 years ago when I thought I was in love, who figured Hunny would truly become the love of my life?
You my wonder why I spell him Hunny. well he is what the buzz is all about in my life, he has always been the hive where all the hunny making has gone on. I may not have realized it when I as young and stupid, but now I know and I am soo glad and BLESSED to still be making hunny with this man!!! I love you sweety, Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday

He is turning 29 on the 12Th of March.
March is the Birthday month for our family and it starts off on the 12Th with me oldest son Nathaniel, he turns 29 this year and these are pictures of him last year at his 28Th BD Party. The old saying time flies when your having fun is true, We loved raising our family and now that they are making lives of their own we miss them sooo much. We are so proud for the wonderful people they have become, but we miss those babies that filled our days with love and laughter and the teenagers that filled our home with excitement and energy and now the adults that fill our hearts with awe!!!!
Thank you Nathaniel, our first born you have filled our lives with more happiness than we should have been allowed, you blessed us with the most adorable granddaughters that we just can't get enough of. We look forward to seeing where the rest of your life takes you. Know that we are cheering you on and loving every minute of everything that comes your way. You have made us proud, so many times over. You know you will always be our favorite ;) hands down and your spot as number one can never be replaced. We love you the most and always will. Love Mom and Dad

Have you seen the movie Mars? It may become my favorite this season!


Happy Birthday Elizabeth!!!

My friend Elizabeth brought this birthday card her husband gave her to the crop Friday at the Scrapbook Shoppe. We were all oo-ing and aa-ing over it, the words were soo sweet!!!! towards the end it says "I know it's your birthday, But I'm the one with the gift" Tooo sweet RC!
So after looking at it for a few minutes I thought " Hey, I have that stamp" so I pulled it out and made this card, Rc's card to his beautiful wife Elizabeth was my inspiration.

These are my versions of RC's wonderful birthday card to Elizabeth.

Ladies we'll have to wait to see what he does next year ;)

My good friend Shirley was turning 29 again and I wanted to give her something special for this wonderful time in her life. I found a site by andrea walford that made a cute little bag that held three jars and tried it out. It turned out just as the directions said it would woo hoo!! Thank God for tutorials!!!
Well the bag wasn't the size I needed for Shirleys goody bag, so I took the measurements from the box of candy I was giving her and made my own bag, and with the scraps from the bag I made her a matching card. Happy Birthday Shirley, I hope this one is better than the last one!!!!
