So How is everyone's week going???? K so it is freezing....
here.... I don't remember it being this cold before! Unreal, I think this morning the thermometer said -31 not uncluding the wind! Freezing! I know it is January but still!!!!!!!!!!! Crazy! So there are a few things, first make sure you all check out OLW tomorrow for the word up! Next is the class for January:

There is a little mini album in on this layout and all together I think there is about 25 pictures! Great way to get all your GOOD christmas pics on one layout! Next is the Feb class... a mini "just us" acrylic album on the 7th, it's sold out but I may have some kits available. The next is the layout classes on the 21st and the 28th.... the 21st still has some room!
One more thing and that is a date for the "Spring Thing" it will be on May 24th! Woooohoooo It seems like a little ways away but it will be here before we know it and with that will come some warm weather! YAY! Stay warm for all you Alberta Chicks! Have a great day!

Where have I been????
I know it has been forever.... but I have been sitting my butt on the beaches of the Carribean, sippin on 'electric lemonade'...... it was absolutely amazing! Rob and I and Dan and Debbie went! It has been a long time since we went on a holiday so it was so much fun! I don't have much to share in the scrappin world but I do have a few pics of our holiday!

these were the rooms

This is the view from our room

Out for dinner, the food was amazing, I think i gained 10 pounds!

There are lots more but I don't want to bore you too much!

So many pics..... so little time!
so how is everyones week going? mine is just gone..... there is no reason for it other than ......gone.... Like where does time go? I was reading a blog today that totally touched my heart....A very young women was writing her story about her husband who is terminally ill.... he was saying goodbye to his little baby in the pictures and it just made me realize again the need to make the most of our oppurtunities.... make the most of our days. My word for the year is "live" like how appropriate.... none of us know what life will bring us but we have to make the most of every single minute.....

Sorry about all the pics and believe me I could post another hundred at least but thought I better stop.... I loved the holidays.... don't get me wrong there are moments, we aren't always perfect although i know I make it sound like we are.....lol but it is sooooo special to spend special times with family and friends.... it truly is the BEST..... Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy New year to everyone!
wow! It is so hard for me to believe that it is 2008 already! I am sure everyone is feeling the same way! Hope everyone had a great Christmas and An awesome New Year....
As a new year starts it has caused me to reflect on the past year.... to wonder if I accomplished all that I wanted to.... For myself I feel like this past year was so much better than a lot of years prior for many reasons!

My new word this year is "live".

I know this seems like a very basic word but I mean LIVE like there is no tommorow.... Live like you have to accomplish so much in a very little bit of time.... Live with all the very best intentions.... and so on.... you get what I mean. So often I feel like a day goes by and what have I done? I want to live for ME and MY family...
I love the quote that Ali has on her blog today:

"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good". author unknown

So with all that in mind.....
make sure you all go over to ONE LITTLE WORD and check out what is going on..... it is word up #17 and there will be multiple winners this go around..... it is Karlas word this week and with a new year starting it is a great word. Here is what I came up with:

I will have more to post about in the next couple of days, some Christmas pics and some New years ones too but for today this is it....
Have a great day everyone!
