Where the Heck Have I been????

So here I am checking out blogs and realize that I have not posted in more than two weeks! Working full time and trying to spend time with Rhys and Joey is taking up all of my spare time. I have also been busy making jewelry for Christmas orders and have been debating holding a Christmas Show and Sale with a girlfriend who paints...only problem is when and where!
So I will try to scrapbook some photos soon!
I am working on a 6x6 mini album using the Hambly overlays for my Grandma for Christmas so I will post it as soon as I am done.
Take care...hope everyone is happy and healthy!

Our Little Monkey

It was so much fun to dress Rhys up as a little monkey!!!
I was very suprised that she liked her costume and didn't try to take it off once!
Hope you all had a great Halloween

Wedding Gift Panic

Yesterday I checked out my girlfriend's wedding web page and almost had a heart attack!! Her wedding is in two weeks and I had planned on making an 8x8 album for her gift...problem is it contains 40 pages. Now I am a fast scrapbooker, but back to work full time and a 13 month old at home come on I am not superwoman! So last night I pumped out 24 pages between 8 and 11 pm!! Now I have to finish the rest and add a few more details here and there.
Here are a few pages to look at...

BC pictures

It has been so long since i put anything on my blog that i thought i would post some pictures from our trip...soon to be on layouts. We had a blast at the pumpkin patch in Kelowna. We went on a hayride, through the hay maze, launched pumpkins, and took lots of photos.

I'll post more photos later.

Hi Everyone

I know that it has been awile since i posted.
Funny thing is that going back to work full time is really keeping me busy!

I do have scrapbook splurge on saturday and a ton of photos from Melina and our BC trip so I plan on doing a lot of scrapbooking!

I feel like so many things have been neglected now that i am back at work! My scrapbooks, jewelry making, friends, and lastly housework.

hope all is well with everyone. I will post layouts after splurge.

My Baby Turns One Today

I can't believe that Rhys turns one today! This year has flown by! I sit here and think about how one year ago today i was in the hospital in labour and thinking this is way too early! A lot of things have happened over this past year and we are truly blessed that Rhys has been so Happy and Healthy!

Here are a few photos of her party.
I will have lots of new photos to share soon as we are spending the day doing fun things as a family!

Family Photos

I stole this from Melina's blog.
She put this on Rhys' birthday gift as a card and i just had to share it! I was actually going to take a photograph of her photos but this is way easier and it shows how truly talented she is!
I had so much fun shooting family photos with her this week. I love all of her candid shots...the one's she always manages to snap and you don't even realize it! Joey is not into having his pic taken so these shots of us just hanging out are perfect for him. Stay tuned I will be scrapbooking lots of them once Melina gets them to us.

First Birthday Party

Melina took this wonderful shot of Rhys eating her own birthday cake!
Rhys' Grandma Cindy bought her a cake to eat was so much fun watching her gently touch the icing and then diggin right in.
We were going to give her her own piece of cake to eat but this was way more fun!!!!

First Birthday Party

Well today is a big day!
Rhys is having her first birthday party today (shee will be one on Tuesday).
We have 13 friends coming to the party between the ages of 10 months and 4 years so it should be a lot of fun!
I had no idea how much prep goes into a party (and i didn't even make my own cake)!!!
It is so much fun buying decorations, treat bag goodies, picking out a cake, and choosing the perfect outfit to go with her scrapbook pages (hee hee hee).
I will post pictures tomorrow.
Have a great day!!

Pre made birthday layout...#2

I picked up this paper at our scrapbook splurge! We each put in a small item or paper (something we didn't need) and we drew names to see who picked a prize. I was second and picked out this great cosmo cricket paper (thanks Jenn). It matched "Happy Birthday" ribbon I had picked up so i have another page to put a birthday picture on!
I am working ahead as my pictures aren't inspiring me right now.

Hope all is well with everyone!!

Saturday night fever...

I am sooooo excited!
I joined a scrapbook splurge and we have our first crop on Saturday night!
I have decided to pick out some photos to scrap and make up kits so that i don't take all of my millions of things with me...easy right...NOT!!
I don't know what pictures I want to crop...what if i get there and they don't inspire me? It has been so long since i scrapbooked away from home i am having troubling deciding what to take! Also we don't meet at a store so if i don't have it i am SOL!!
Oh well...i need to get my garage sale organized for tomorrow now that rhys is off to sleep.
I will share more photos later...
sleep tight
