The Best Remedy

Sometimes when life throws you a curve ball, you need a little pick me up. Whether I have a bad day at work or I wake up on the wrong foot, I can always count on my girls to put me in a better mood.

You see, they have a way with silly faces and making me laugh when I am feeling down. It's a trait of there's that I love. I can't get enough of it! Speaking of girls and silly faces, I was lucky to capture just that a few weeks ago while taking pictures. I used some of my favorite Webster's Pages products to create this fun and silly layout.


Do you see that red and white strip of tape? I received it in one of my Scrapbooking from the Inside Out kits and can't get enough of it! I have used it on several layouts and plan on using it on several more.



Happy creating!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Turkey is in the oven. Pies are on the counter. Sides are waiting to be cooked. Rolls are happily rising and I am taking a short break before the feasting begins to reflect on this past year.

I am thankful for my family. They have done so much for me and continue to do so.

I am thankful for friends who are there for me. Who listen to my woes and thoughts. Who give me advice and much needed hugs.

I am thankful for having a home and the means to take care of my little family.


Here is a tag I created with a few Webster's Pages products along with one of my favorite picture of my girls. It was taken last year. I just can't believe how much they have grown since then!

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Happy gobble gobble day everyone!

Eat Healthy

The holidays are creeping up which means lots of yummy foods! I love all the food at Thanksgiving and all the sweets around Christmas time. I am a sucker for sweet things!

Pretty soon I will be baking all my favorite Christmas cookies to share with my family and friends. I will need to remember to eat something healthy during that time though. That is soooo hard to do when you have all this delicious cookies calling your name but I am determined to try to keep a good balance of sweet and healthy in my household.

As a reminder to eat healthy, I created this layout with the Mindful kit from Scrapbooking From the Inside Out. 


Happy Creating!

MIA No Longer

I was out sick for a bit. It started Halloween night and ended up with me having to go to the doctor for some antibiotics on the following Monday. I ended up with sever chest congestion. It got to the point where I could hardly breathe. If I would have waited a few more days, I probably would have been diagnosed with pneumonia. No fun!

I finally have my energy back and feel like myself again. This weekend I disinfected my entire house and now it looks like my oldest daughter might be coming down with the crud I had. She is coughing and doesn't have much of an appetite. If she gets any worse, I am going to pump her full of Mucinex so that she doesn't get as bad as I did.

While I was sick, my girls were a big help. I know it scares them when mommy is sick. Poor Aryanna kept hoping I would be better soon. Luckily, I now am. This weekend I have been back to crafting. It feels good to create again. Here is a layout I made a few weeks ago with the Best Friends collection from Webster's Pages.


Happy Creating!
