Shelby is practicing sliding into her teen years, exerting the independence that she thinks she has. It is a bit challenging, to say the least, and I am sure it will get worse before it gets better! Pray with me...I remember when she was about 2 remarking that someday I would be thankful for her independence but that time has yet to come, someday, someday.
I do have a LO starting to develop in my little brain. Speaking of little, I have been into printing little pictures lately. I just printed several pictures from our recent Cricut SWARM at Susan's store and I want to use those pictures on a LO with the Bug cake. Need to remember to use the Cricut green and pink polka dot ribbon I have. For those of you who don't know, the Cricut is a die cutting machine I use in scrapbooking. It's signature color is a wonderful, bright lime green and the Cricuts are nicknamed bugs. Susan had a cute cupcake, cake made to look like the Cricut logo and it will be the center of my page. I will be working on this one in the coming days...be on the lookout.
In the meantime...please say a prayer for my cousin's husband Rob. He is going through some medical challenges right now and they could use the extra thoughts. Also, my little Bro Adrian and his family are trying to get moved and are having a hard time finding a place and making it all come together, meanwhile my SIL is training for her new job. They too could use a little support from above.
See ya later! Gotta get to work...one and a half more days of Duty Officer!!!

There are 13 total picts on this LO All are from my house.
The Snow Beautiful is from Alphalicious short stack with the O in snow from AE. I turned the B upside down as I like that look better. I layered the lettes on shadows. The tag is also from AE. I used DS to do some stretching of the tag and the snow word. Snow is lightly Stickled with Star Dust.
The photo mat on page 2 is chalked on the edges and the tag has some fibers from my stash!

Well the whole family is sick. At least hubby and daughter are! I think it is the flu~the icky bad kind that is running rampant right now. Hopefully Hunter doesn't get it too, but are there any bets? DH woke me up at 3:00 freezing and has done nothing but complain since then. He even complained when I told him that he and DD are going to the Dr. today! Did I mention that this is going to be fun!?
- Mom, I am reminding you to talk to me about the black milk glass you found!
I still have 2 layouts to post and a third in progress. It will probably be in progress now for a bit. As if the whole family being sick isn't enough work, I also switched on call week with someone at work, so tomorrow at noon until next Thursday at noon I am on call. I never say the Q word, which I won't even identify right now, during or right before an on call week, so tough if you can't figure it out!
I'll try and get those LO's posted tonight...but for those reading this post, please keep my family in your thoughts. All joking and complaining aside, I hate to see them in any discomfort. It breaks my heart!
They both tested positive for the flu today, so $104 later for prescriptions I hop they are on the mend. I'll keep you posted, you keep your fingers crossed that Hunter and I don't get it! Deal!?

Anyway, back to the housework~err blogging about housework. It has to get done! The kids will help some but I will be doing the bulk of it. Actually, I will be doing most of the work! Shelby is currently doing her homework and while Hunter is a help~he isn't good at toilets~yet! There must be some rule against this! When I announed that it was housecleaning day, Hunter said, "Mom, when are you going to win the lottery?". Boy don't I wish I knew, then I could scrap while some nice person did my housework.
Of course that is just a dream....
Hahahaha!!! I got some scrappin' in today afterall! I have completed two pages and printed several pictures to work on a third. I don't think I will get them posted tonight, but I am so happy that I got to play today! Life is but a dream!

BTW~page idea...Hunter used to bite the wheels off his toy cars (HotWheels) when he would receive a new car he was always say, "I bite the wheels off" with the cutest little voice. When asked why, he would always say, "Cause they are chewy." Anyway can't forget this one!
Feel free to remind me of other cute, strange or off things my kids or I have done so that these memories can be preserved!
Welcome to my blog...I love having you drop in!
