Frightfully Adorable....

I had fun creating this layot of Jack from 2010 Halloween. I used the Bella Blvd.line for it. The sketch was courtesy of Sketch#273 over at Scrapbook Challenges I love it over there. They have a new Sketch every week. Would love to see you there.

I would like to also wish all of you a very happy, healthy New Year!

I just love this picture of Chace that Tisha took of
him in the NICU when he was just a few days old.
This layout is based off a challenge over at Scrapbook Challenges.

happening in the new year.

Trick or treat...

Just wanted to share a layout of the kids at Halloween this year. I used the Bella Blvd Line. I just love it. I did manage to get a few layouts completed at the 2-day crop the other weekend along with a Calendar, a 6x6 book, my Christmas cards and a framed layout for my son. So, I didn't think I did too bad. Have a great day!

My Friend Beth...

I just wanted to tell you how much I loved this assignment of using Border Punches. However I only own one to my name but I just Love it. When I chose my picture for this project of my children I knew that using Echo Park's Playground Line would go perfect. I noticed that it even had a border sticker that mimicked my border punch. This assignment was to use a border punch for Chicas gettin Crafty.

Just the girls!

This Layout is of my sister Brandi and I in about 1976.
Although I Have two daughters, I don't get to scrap many girlie layouts because
they dont like to get there pictures taken as much since they are getting older.
So, I was happy to scrap this one of us. We were so close when we were little then in our teen years
we started to drift apart then we got married and had children. Now, we live a few hundred miles away
and I miss her terribly.

It is a bit rainy here today kind of yucky. It makes me

Life has been well, you know a bit busy! With 4 kiddos I feel pulled
in a million different directions. I stay creative. The above Fall banner I made with Eye-lets Etc.

Mac-n- Chz please......

Yummy!!! Who doesn't love Mac-n-chz????? I know I do and so does my family. This is my great grandmother's (Myrtle Spangler) recipe. She will soon be turning 95. although I have not seen her in many years she is still a big part of our life. I was lucky enough a few years back to receive a cookbook made from my mother complied with favorites of her and my grandparents. This recipe happens to be one of them. My great grandmother had 16 children. My grandfather(my mom's dad) was her her first born his name was Jack whom I named my first son after. I always thought it was such a Man's man name if you know what I mean a big strong name.  I love to hear all the stories my mom tells me about staying with my great granny. She is such a wonderful and spritual woman and I loved listening to her. growing up as a small child and visiting her was great because that meant that you would not only visit her but someone else in the Spangler clan would also be there. Her kitchen always smelled like fresh homemade bread or pie and it was filled with hope, love and joy.
Miss you Granny!

An answered prayer...

Boy, what a weekend. I spent most of it in the bed with a head cold. i would rather be sick than any of my babies. Last week Chace had a fever and complained he didnt feel the best. I prayed over and him and prayed over him asking God to let me be sick and Chace be better. My prayer worked. I feel miserable but I will get through it and God knew that when he answered my prayer. Above you can see a few more challenges that I had completed at the My Scraps & More crop. the first one of Ayla
is was a sketch. I have really enjoyed the new friends I have made over there. Well we have a new chorus member in the House. Jack came home last week and was super excited because he tried out to be part of his school choir and he made it. His school is really small and they only have choir and jump rope team. We were very proud of him They do alot of traveling and concerts have a uniform to boot. Of course my head starts spinning $$$$. but on no, it's not about the Money, Money, Money
it's about the priceless memories he will have and the pictures I get to take. Everything these days have a Price Tag. First its was the new Volleyball shoes, hair ribbons for each game,embrodiered backpack, Football fees, cleats, now chorus and next will be soccer....but we do it to keep our kids active and healthy and yeah, of course we love the concession stands!!!!
