First Sketch Challenge Entry for 2010

My First Sketch Challenge Entry for the new year!!! Jen posted this challenge back on December 26th, but I'm just now getting around to entering. My daughter has been invited to an Eagle Scout ceremony this weekend. When I suggested she buy a card, she said "I thought you could make one". To my delight, I did just that!!! So, thanks Jen for the awesome sketch challenge. It was perfect for the card. Hope you all agree!!!

Happy New Year!!!! Here's to health & happiness.

Another take on this layout that I just thought I'd share.

February already!

Can you believe how fast the time goes by?!?! Hard to believe the first month of 2009 is behind us already. And I have to admit I'm not off to a very good start. Have lost my motivation for exercising and eating right. I really need to get a handle on things with all the vacationing we will be doing this year. First of which will be jetting to Alaska in February with my mom to see that newest addition to our family. Little Seamus Calvin!!! Can't wait to meet the little guy in person!

Didn't sleep at all last night. Finally got up around 3:30am to some bible study and praying. Went back to bed at 4:30 and laid there until 5:30 when it was time to get up. So only about 4 hours of sleep. I'm tired!!! But, I will take time to go to the stamping room tonight. Working on a little project that needs to be done so I can take it to Alaska.

Well, that's all for now. Hope everyone is staying healthy!!!

Christmas Giving

Tonight we were able to have dinner with Missy & Connor at mom and dad's. They leave Wednesday for home and I won't see them until the end of February 2009. I'm grateful that mom and I are able to take a vacation to see them after their new family addition arrives. So, tonight I wanted to give Missy her Christmas gift so I could see her open it.

The gift was a framed photo of her mom (my sister) when she was about 3-4 years old. Extra special since she passed over a year ago from cancer. Just an heirloom I wanted to frame for Missy to have for her wall. I was pleased with the finished product so I must share:

It brought a tear to her eye and she thanked me sincerely. I was so happy she liked it and was glad I was able to give it to her in person while she was home. After all, isn't Christmas all about giving.

Happy Holidays!

Sketch Challenge

There are many blogs I read almost daily. A favorite would be Fresh & Fun. Today when I checked this blog I was pleasantly surprised to see that a new sketch challenge had been posted. While I've never participated in a challenge, I have had thoughts of doing so. Timing is usually the issue, but being it is Friday, I had time to actually think and make a submission.

So this is my submission for the Weekend Sketch Challenge (WSC67) Entry #101. Wish me luck!

Catching Up!

It has been some time now since I blogged. The schedule is hectic from week to week, but with the Cross Country season winding down it will free up some weekend time. I think I may get to start sleeping in and relaxing a bit on Saturday mornings. YEAH!

I'm still jogging 2-3 times a week. I'm still somewhat shocked that I've been consistent with this new exercise, but I do love being outdoors in God's creation. That coupled with the fact that I want to stay in good health as I age and we are constantly told how good exercise is for our bodies. It's a way I can praise God and show my thanks for sustaining my health. And as long as the legs still move, why not let them carry me down a beautiful tree lined street or trail. Right?!?!?

Recently acquired a Cricut Expression machine. I am having so much fun scrapbooking and making cards with this new tool. It has provided hours of fun already. Can't wait to make some gifts and boxes with it. Good holiday ideas floating around in my head lately. . .

Well, it's late, and tomorrow is Friday! Yes! Looking forward to the weekend. Good luck at Regionals RLHS Cross Country team!!! Go Saders!!!!!
