Well I have not been able to do much scrapping today, my son needed help on a project and I have a lot more school work than I realized. I will try and get some things done this week.
Well another day of scrapping. I am so excited because I have been playing with the Pagoda cart. Maybe I will post something a little later. Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday.
This is a heart card that I made for a challenge.
This was a Christmas card I made.
Wow a lot has happened since I was on here last. My oldest son Michael joined the United States Navy and will be stationed in Japan as of April 1st, 2011. Been busy with the family and trying to get my 17 year old son Nicholas ready for college, he will be a senior in HS next year so he has to start looking. Andrew my 15 year old may be joining the Navy as well when he turns 17. Alexander my 13 year old is going through the teen attitude phase......hahaha
The holidays were great, we got to spend some much needed time with Mike and we are looking forward to going to see him at the end of the month for his 19th birthday, as he will be leaving February 1st to Great Lakes, Illinois.
