A Doll For Miles was also made with the kit Pure Happiness by LorieM of ESS. I love the colors in this kit and the vintage feel. It's gorgeous.
The Journaling reads:
He's a boy why does he need a doll?
so that when he's a father like you,
he'll know how to take care of his baby
and feed him and love him and bring him
the things he wants, like a doll
so that he can practice being a father.
-Charlotte Zolotow
Taken from "A Doll For William"; which is one of my favorite children's stories.

And now for some color! This is the thing that I love about being on creative teams...I would normally shy away from bright colors. I just prefer muted tones. But because I was asked to use this fun and colorful kit, I branched out and made something different!
Sassy Jess was made with Ordinary Miracles: March 09 Enchanted Studio Scraps Mega Kit.

Such a Funny Boy! Plus some family news.

Miles just loves to make us laugh and he has quite a sense of humor! These pics are of him streaking through the house, bare naked with a diaper on his head. He thought that was totally hilarious!
Kit is the new Collab by Chaos Lounge and Melissa Daniels called Going Buggy. You can find it here.

Other news...hmmm, let me think:
Miles is going to be tested for speech delays at the end of the month. He certainly is brilliant, so that's not the problem. He just doesn't really talk much. He has about 10 words that he uses and me makes those work in all situations!

Emma is in the midst of finishing up her social studies project. It's titled, "Half Man- Half Wolf, Legends of Werewolves". That's right, my beautiful little girl loves werewolves. She's such an interesting young lady. Oh....she also made the cut for Math Field Day again this year. I'm so proud of her!

Jess was in the hospital ER until late last night because she has a horrible ear infection. Poor girl!
She had to get a shot in the bum...Ouch!

And I've lost 2 more pounds this week! It's nice to feel like I can do this...I can lose weight in a healthy way and I can reach my goal! Hurray!

Bye for now,

Longest post ever!

Hi all! This may be my longest blog post because I am so far behind! I've got to keep up with this or things just pile up. So, lets get started!

This LO is kind of cool, isn't it?! "Our Little Star" was made with Vicki Stegall's Rock on kit. I guess it's an expression of my wish that Miles is musically inclined like his talented Daddy.

Here's my oldest baby when she was going to her latest school dance. "Almost Grown Up" was made for a speedscrap at ESS and uses all Chaos Lounge products.
This LO was also made for a speedscrap and I did them both at the same time! That was quite a challenge! The kit used is Endless by Armina Designs. The quote is a lyric from the song Nature Boy which is a favorite of my husbands.

Thanks so much Jen of Chaos Lounge for tagging me, this one is different and fun!!! The rules are:
•Go to your photo folder in your computer
•Go to the 6th folder of photos
•Go to the sixth picture
•Put the picture on your blog and a description of it
•Invite six friends to join the challenge
•Link them in your blog.
Here's what I found when I looked in the correct spot. A pic of Miles checking out the Christmas tree!
I'll have to think about who I can tag. I'm so new to blogging that I'm not sure I can find 6 people!
These two LOs were made with All About Boys by Neverland Scraps. This kit was very impressive because the colors are so rich and saturated. You can find here in the ESS store...;amp;page=3/
"Ball, Ball, Ball" is about how much Miles loves basketball. I swear, the boy is obsessed! His greatest joy, right now, is for his Daddy to play ball with him!

Finally we come to the end of this post! One more bit of news, just to pat myself on the back a bit... I've lost 15 lbs so far in my weightloss quest! 15 lbs and 14.74" lost!
Talk to you all soon!
