Now I see.....

it's word up agin! Wahoooooooo! So the word is Jessi's pick this time around..... 'see'..... over at OLW, make sure you go check it along!
The other night I was thinking about this word.... what it means to me..... and then it clicked... I figured out that now I see, now I see that my mom and dad really did know what they were talking about..... they really did know what they were doing. Why is it that it takes having your own families before you finally see.... you finally get it. I remember mom saying; when you have your own family you'll see. Now I see, now I finally get it, now I AM saying the very same thing to my kids..... do they See, do they get it.... do they think I don't really know.... I don't understand? We'll see.....

Lunch out today with my gal pals.... another thing I love and don't do it often enough! Shawn is home for the weekend, so excited about that....I think we are going out for supper tonight so that will be awesome, no cooking, although I don't cook Friday nights anyway.... wanted to share the new layout package.... sold out last night but might be able to scrounge one or two up if anyone was interested! I have been thinking so much about this girl this week..... and make sure you check out Jessi's technique on OLW!

"we don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing"

Karla's choice this time the word! I chose this picture of Sharla and her friend Megan! They are always having so much fun together! Megan is on a trip to South America right now and we are all missing her!
This is what I came up with for the word 'fun' over at OLW this week! love that word and how true it is..... With the busyness of life we all get so caught up in the moments of life that we forget to play....we foget to have fun.....If you want to play along you can go check out OLW and jump right in! We would love to see what everyone comes up with!

and of course a few pics of my lovelies for this week!

This guy looks like he has a black eye but it is more likely lack of sleep.... those video games are pretty important you know!
Have a great day everyone!

and I love this quote!

"Despite the changes which come into our lives, and with gratitude in our hearts,
may we fill our days- as much as we can- with those things which matter most."
President Thomas S. Monson
hmmmmmmm... filling our days with the things that matter most..... love that!
Saw this over on Teresa's blog.....go check her site out she has the cutest little valentines projects going on over there!
I have been thinking lots about Gratitude lately and how Grateful I am for my life! My family, my friends! I was talking to an old friend this morning and just realized that I am soooooooooo thankful for where my life is today!

I am so sorry I don't have the layout on here for the class yet, hope to add it later on! Good thing you girls all trust me!

Happy Monday everyone!

So much to do, so little time.....
so happy Monday morning! I LOVE a little bit of routine, not lots but a little.... the kids are all back to school this morning, Cole and Sharla have been off for almost three weeks so there has been no routine! YIKES!!!! So i am loving the quiet this morning..... The last week has been so busy with scrapbooking! It has been so awesome, haven't scrapped this much in awhile so it has been good.... Getting some class samples done and so on! I will be teaching a canvas class at the Scrapyard here in Calgary this month. I also have two layout classes planned for this month, one on the 12th and one on the 19th. I have a couple spots left in the 12th so if you are interested let me know. I also wanted to share a couple of pics of the album I made for Brianne.....the pics aren't great but I was running out to a class and before the album was gone I thought I better hurry up and snap a few pics! I have to say the album is amazing, I know that the family will cherish this abum and will enjoy looking back through the memories of Brianne's life..... Have a great day everyone and I will be posting a technique at OLW this week so make sure and check it out!
