Home made jobbie

Thanks to the girls at LP I was able to copy the home made clip it up. Turned out pretty good actually, I'm going to hang it from the ceiling so it doesn't take up too much room....but not until we get to the new house. I have binder clips and metal shower curtain hangers on mine and use them for different sized letters. This is only for my packaged letters no other embellies....I like to keep things together so if I can't have them all in one place forget it. The lamp shade was $2 from drop and shop and the clips are from the dollar store. This clip it up cost me a grand total of $8.

Layouts from the LP crop

So I've been very busy creating layouts for the crop that just finished up at LP and it was so much as usual. The DT layouts are done and I think I might have some scraps left to make a few cards. I LOVED working with the my little shoe box line !!! Wish I had more of that stuff....

The princess and I

I'd squeeze her if I could get my arms around her....haha. She's such a big girl, very tall and solid. She chatters all the time, so cute....."mum....jabber jibber jobber.... toys ok?" sure babe.

Some how we figure out what she is saying, "mine" is a very clear instruction for us.

Such a fun age.

generation in between

Here is a layout of my mom and my daughter. I used the LP alternate kit for June and cut out the flowers. A very lumpy layout. I was dressing Olivia in her jammies tonight and we were chatting about the day, I said "tomorrow we will go see Grannie and Papa" and she replied "oh fun!" She so cute!
Maggie sent me to Traci's blog to leave a comment to win a blog makeover!! Wouldn't that be so cool? Her work is sooo good, I would love that. Check it out here.

Sniff....we sold our house....8-)

I'm so glad we are moving. My house is lovely but it just a bit too small, I don't have a linen closet and the master bed room closet is only 1/2 used because you can't get at the other part....little things that make you grouchy. My new house has a walk in closet - yum. Olivia's closet is a regular closet with bi-folds but it's 11 feet long....any girls dream. My scrap room is 12 feet by 15 feet with florescent lighting - I dream about it every night. Did I mention the pool? Josh is pretty excited about that and Rich gets a new shed...that has windows 8-)

This is was we are leaving behind, a lovely home with unbelievably awesome neighbours.

I know it's hard to see.....

But there is a bird in my now dead planter. I'm really not a flowery kinda girl but when we put our house up for sale I thought I should have some colour outside. Currently our front garden is populated with shrubs and low lying plants....many shades of green. So I picked up this beautiful plant, no idea what it was but I was so proud of myself because I kept it alive for so long. Now it's somebirdy's home. I'm hoping I can catch a photo of the baby when it cracks it's way into the world.
