I"m not missing - I promise!

I've had a problem lately. I had some skin issues i wanted to deal with and in searching for a product to help me, it instead, gave me an allergic reaction. Yup..... my face is red, swollen, bumps, and itches like crazy. It sucks to say the least. So- I'm on benadryl and cortisone cream, in hopes that I can find something I'm not allergic to. SO please... if anyone has anything you think i can try - please leave a comment. Face wash, acne treament, facial creams or moisturizers, whatever! Just nothing with Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide..... tha'ts what's killed me to begin with!

Yet another one

I, for some reason, am really attracted to the whole digi scrappin' thang. I do love sitting at the computer and creating something- this can be a little frustrating, which I don't like- BUT, to come with something is very fulfilling! I've been working on this one all day- due to computer problems (gggrrrrrr). Never fear either.... I'm not giving up paper scrapping for anything... this is just a fun side thing. :)
SO- here it is. Think I can make a career out of it?! Hang on to your panties.. I"m gonna go hybrid scrapping soon too!

I haven't done cards in SOOOOO long. I seriously can't remember the last time I made one. So my good friend informed me of yet another contest and the first round is to make "Hello" cards. Well, the prize and the simple-ness of it were too good to pass up, so I've currently made two and will make about a gazillion more tonight... hahaha :)
Here are the two I've done so far- and I have to admit that all these cool shapes come from my shnazy Silhouette machine. It's so wonderful, I can't begin to express my love for it!!! jk
Anyway- Hope you like them!

I never cease to amaze myself!!

This is SO fun. My friend Amanda and I challenged each other. We went each other a picture and we had to use that one picture and create a one page, 12x12, digital layout. Neither one of us have ever done a digi page before and so we went hunting on the internet and found quite a few freebie files to use. So out of those files, we created the pages. I need to tell you, there is only one digi scrapper that I admire. She makes it look sooooo incredibly real, you can't tell whether it's digi or not. So my thoughts on digi scrapping haven't been too high because I think it's too easy and doesn't look real. I wanted to learn how to do it for the pics that I don't wnat to physically scrap, but don't want to throw away either. But now that I've done it, it's really a lot of fun! don't know if it will lead to a lifelong career or anything, but I know I'll do it again. SO here it is in all it's glory! This is Amanda's adorable daughter Lily. Seriously...... so fun to find new talent.... lol ;)

Creative juices and inspiration

I've been creative because I have to be. That's right. My design team commitments are kicking my butt and I'm really struggling. I've created 3 pages in the past 2 days, one of which I think is aweful. But, I did create this one that I quite enjoy. Now that I've scanned it in and see it posted, I do believe I'm going to be fixing it up a bit and adding a few more elements and then I may submit it... so we'll see what happens. I haven't had a whole lot of time to sit and do what I want. I just got this pic from my brother who is serving a mission in New Zealand. This picture completely took my breath away and I think you'll agree. I'll be scrapping this one VERY soon. Amazing isn't it? One of those "powerful" pics. LOVE it!
Anyway- Amber.... out.

This is FUNN-HAY

Ok.... So I did this page the other day. I have to say... it is so funny! I just love how funny I think I am! Well..... the page is wonderful in and of itself, but the journaling is the best part. Read on and I think you'll agree!!!

Journaling Reads:

3 kids in 5 years. What was i thinking?

Perky boobs and a cute butt. Used to have them...then they moved south. Speaking of moving south....

I like in Georgia of all places! My kids have southern drawals and we're across the country from all family. What are we doing here again?

I'd much rather go to sleep at 9pm than party with friends. Oh wait! Friends and party... what are those?

I own a minivan. I drive the minivan. I love the minivan. Something is definitely wrong with this picture.

All it takes are 3 notes of one song to recognize what cartoon it comes from. I would so kick trash in "name that tune"!

I'll be 25 the rest of my life. Better get used to it!

Dealing with 25... yup. Tha'ts what I'm doing and I love it!

I admit....

I'm totally biased about my kids!!!! I just fixed these up and I must say, I have the cutest kids on the face of this earth!!! Here they are in their cute Easter clothes and at their Easter Egg hunt. The girls' dresses are frilly and so adorable. I'll get a pic up of the full dress later. Just thought I'd share the cutest kids in the world!

Happy Easter!!!

So today was fun. Woke up to find the Easter Bunny found us once again. (thank heavens)!
Kids got some cute clothes and tons of candy. Went to church and had a nice time there, then came home and went to an Easter Egg hunt at a friends house. Kids didn't have a whole lot of competition in that one, so we loaded up on even more candy. Came home and had dinner, and put the kids in the tub and then in bed. Talk about your non-stop, hyper active, day! I'll post the pics of the kids tomorrow. Anybody in the need for some sweets? I think I have about 10 ponds of it!!
Happy Easter!
