I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning.  Hopefully he can help me.  I've been sick since the 12th of October!!!

{2 blessings}

So I know I'm sort of due for 3 blessings today, but I only got 2 done.  So I'll post 2 next week and then be all caught up!

First - my brother Christian!

This is my younger brother Christian, just younger than me. He is about to be the daddy of 2 daughters. He's such a great guy. :)

And here is my 2nd blessing for today. I was watching some TV show and there was a blind person and it just hit me SO HARD how lucky I am to have the gift of sight!

{full credits}

And those are my blessings for today. I thought I was over and done with being sick but NNNOPE! I was sick in bed all day yesterday and had to leave church early today to go home and crash. I seriously need to be done with this sickness. I'm really tired of feeling sick!

Oh - and one little bit of info.  ScrapMatters will be down all day tomorrow for a scheduled server upgrade.  So - don't panic!  It will be back up sometime on Tuesday!!

Well - I think I'll talk Josh into watching Amazing Race now before we go to sleep! See ya later!!

{feels good to scrap!}

After a week and a half without scrapping, it feels so nice to scrap again!!  Let me show you what I've done since I've been home (yes, I have lingering Disneyland fever so ALL these pages are from various Disneyland trips!).

I scrapped this yesterday for the Speed Scrap!  It's from our trip last March.  I LOVE Snow White.

{credits here}

I scrapped this one this morning using Erica Zane's awesome new "Tickle Me Happy" kit!

{credits here}

And this afternoon, I TOTALLY spaced the Speed Scrap! I was just sitting here scrapping this page, and totally forgot about it! :( I am so bummed I missed it!! I do like this page though . . . It's one of those magical Disneyland stories I always put off scrapping because I don't want to mess it up. But thanks to the DIS challenge, I got the push I needed to get it scrapped (This is from our March trip too).

{credits here}

And that's all the pages I've done this week.

Oh hey, would you like a little peek at what's new tomorrow??

I know - not the most telling peek - but you'll see it all tomorrow!!

Have a great night!

{home again, home again}

I'm baaaaack! It's good to be home, but oh man did we have a great trip!! It was so incredible to have my man all to myself for a whole week! Not to mention to be alone with him at DISNEYLAND! We had a great time and enjoyed MANY days of magic!

(thank goodness for the photopass photographers! I'm glad they told us to kiss and got this shot! Its one of my faves from the trip!)

It was quite an unusual trip however. Besides having SO MANY days there, I somehow managed to injure my foot toward the end of the first day and spent the 2nd, 3rd and half of the 4th day in a wheel chair! Yes, poor Josh had to push me all over the parks. It was super embarrassing at first, but I guess I got over it. Luckily, I was able to walk the last couple of days. It was a whole new experience enjoying Disneyland from a chair!

But I couldn't walk on it, and I was NOT about to sit in my hotel room and miss out on any Disneyland time! So - here I am in my wheel chair! It did help us get through some lines faster (not all of them). So that was sort of nice.

And on top of all of that I got sick on the 3rd day. A nasty wicked cold/sinus infection that is still with me. It is NOT FUN. I swear I always get sick on my Disneyland trips! It's so frustrating. Some day I'll have a healthy injury free trip.

But even with all of that we had an amazing trip and I cried like a baby when we left. It was a wonderful week and I wish we could do it again right now! I thought by then we'd be ready to come home but we were very sad it was over!!  I'm so lucky to have a husband who loves Disneyland as much as I do and wants to spend as much time there as I do.  We are totally M.F.E.O. and this was an amazing anniversary trip!!  Thanks baby for the good times!  I love being married to you.

I have to say I did miss scrapbooking!  I'm actually itching to scrap something right now . . . hmm yes I might just have to scrap this afternoon instead of work.  I should work though.  Decisions decisions. . . .

Hey - just so you know the Speed Scraps at SM this week are:
Evening Speed Scrap:  Wednesday 10/22, at 7pm MST
Daytime Speed Scrap: Thursday 10/23, at 1pm MST

After my vacation I'm in desperate need of some Speed Scrapping so count me in for both!!

AND I am hosting a new "Matter of Scrap" challenge at SM that started today!! It's all about TIME! haha Check it out here! '

Here is the LO I scrapped before our trip for it . . .


I hope you'll all play along!

See you guys around!!

{finally I can share these LOs!}

So - I can finally share SOME of the LOs I've been scrapping these days. But first - let me tell you about the lunch I had today!!

I got to meet Stacy and Kathleen, two friends from ScrapMatters who I've never met IRL before! Stacy lives in Australia and is here visiting family and Kathleen actually lives fairly close to me but we've never met! It was so much fun! We sat in Chilis talking for 2 and a half hours! It was a great afternoon and I'm so happy I was able to meet both of them! I was a dummy and forgot my camera, but they both had theirs there so I'll be getting pictures emailed to me soon!

Ok - now to do a little plugging for my CTs and share some LOs at the same time.

First up - Molly! Molly (DeCrow Designs) is off at Disneyland right now (we BARELY miss each other there! funny huh?). Anyway - she has a really cute pack of Halloween Doodles out right now called "This is Halloween".

And this is what I scrapped with it (using lots of other goodies from Molly's shop).

{full credits}

These are pictures from our trip to Disneyland LAST October. We went with my Sister and Brother-in-law and their boys. It was a lot of fun! I can't wait to see Candy Corn Acres again this year!

Next up, Erica Zane!! Have I told you how much I love Erica?? She came out with this gorgeous kit called "Where the Heart Blooms".

I scrapped my little nephew Noah.

{full credits}

Isn't this kit so gorgeous?! I LOVE it, and totally plan on using it again and again! And hello, TWO alphas? Jackpot!

And my last but not least CT plug, Mira Designs. Minna has whipped up an awesomely cute kit called "Sweet Bird".

And here is what I scrapped with it!

{full credits}

Ok - one more LO. This one isn't for a CT but it was in a Telephone Game at the DIS so I couldn't post it until the whole chain was posted! This is from our Jan. '07 Disneyland trip when Space Mountain turned into Rockin' Space Mountain while we were there.

{full credits}

And those are all the LOs I can share today! I've been running around like crazy getting errands done, things ready for the trip, making list and checking things off. Busy busy busy but I'm soooo excited to leave! It's going to be AWESOME. Hope you're all having a great day! See ya tomorrow!!!
