Feel Better Soon! FMS 59

We all feel a bit green now and then - not fun at all!  When my daughter was about 4 she got sick one night.  After a while her stomach settled and I got her back to sleep.  I put down clean beach towels making a path from her bed, across the hall and into the bathroom - trying to save the carpet just in case!  Sure enough an hour later I heard her hollering for me.  I met her at the bathroom door where she was crying and saying  "Mom there were clean towels in my way and I had to take a new path from the other side of my bed to the bathroom. But I didn't get the towels dirty!"  Oh I found that path - no problem!  

Have a fun Halloween and don't eat too much candy ;)

It's Great To Be Back! FMS 58

It is great to be back with the wonderful gals at Freshly Made Sketches!  Storybook DSP was just hanging around my desk so I decided to put it to good use on Narelle's cool sketch!


Here's a peek at the simple thank you cards I had been making using Storybook Designer Paper.  

And here's a peek at Emma - I believe this is the "Don't try to sweet talk me" look!

Halloween Witch.........PPA145

Remember the witch in The Wizard of Oz writing "Surrender Dorothy" across the sky? I do!  Pretty scary stuff when you are 6! Looks like this witch from Toxic Treats is much friendlier - and not a flying monkey in sight!  (shudder)

Emma Lin is pretty friendly herself this week.  She is one month old and already practicing the royal wave!  Not quite ready for sitting up though...........I think she is hiding from those flying monkeys!

Margaret designed a great sketch for us this week at Pals Paper Arts - hope you join us!

Falling For You! PPA144

Whew what a wild three weeks it has been getting used to the "new normal" of having a brand new baby in the family!  Granddaughter Emma is doing just fine - her mom's recovery has been a bit slower than expected but she is improving daily.  I have been helping out every day but unlike Emma's parents I sleep very well when I get home at night!  Thanks to so many of you for your cards, comments, and good wishes!  

Thought you might like to see a photo from Miss Emma's first photo shoot at two weeks old.  Baxter really isn't as forlorn as he looks in this picture.  He has proven to be a great big brother and sleeps near Emma all the time.
