Little Man and Sittin` Purrty!

Oh yes, what a long week!

I haven`t felt like scrappin or even talking all week.
I`ve ignored phone calls and even went to bed early... one of those weeks.


Monday morning 8am our office received some news that a coworkers husband died in an accident and her 10 year old boy was with him at the time. The young boy is ok but his dad didn`t survive. SO SO SO Sad. My heart goes out to the Noel family.

Then on Monday again, our wonderful ( insert sacastic smiley emoticon here ) employer decided it was time to notify 5 people in our office that they will be laid off in October! October ... why on a day like today I asked... well .. really doesn`t surprise me. It seems when things are bad they enjoy making it worst.

I also had another migraine this week, i think this is the 4-5th one this month. I`ve been drinking more water but I seem to be really sensitive to ... waking up in the morning! Usually around 11am I have a headache .. then a migraine by 4pm ish. So I went to bed early on a few nights this week and made a Doctor`s appointment for test. Hopefully it`s nothing drastic but stress or my TMJ acting up.

On a HAPPY NOTE -
It`s our 1 year anniversary at Creative Scrappers! I can`t believe it`s been 1 year since i started the blog. It was just going to be a blog.. I had a call up for design team members and On May 18th i then opened the forum and gallery and KABOOM it went off. I am very proud of what has become of the site and happy to have met tons of scrapbookers and made a few friends. If you haven`t had a chance to participate in our forum, come visit! Even if you are a lurker... we like lurkers! But i guarantee in no time you`ll be scrappin with us.

Here is a layout i did for our scrapbook sussies kit for May. I really love the papers this month.
I used a photo of skinnimini`s little boy and called it `little man`


I love the Whimsy Button I used and the twirled twine! How cute is that.. I actually got my hubby to make those for me.. i love them!
Scrapbook Sussies has a blog and we are looking for guest designers!!! HINT HINT .. send LARA an email ( lmcclendon@scrapbooksussies.com ) and let her know you saw the post on my blog .. .you might get lucky !

And my layout for our reveal at Creative Scrappers -- for Sketch 48.
Remember the sneak peek from April 15th ... yes, this is finally my layout!


I used October Afternoon papers.. i love those papers. they are double sided and so yummy in color. Of course a photo of my dear kitty Eddie. He sits in a huge bowl on our coffee table. We were going to use this for decoration but when we placed it on the table he immediately jumped in and claimed it his own. He fits so snug and comfy in this bowl and he really loves it. So ... i took a picture to remember.

I am home scrappin tonight and enjoying some quiet time. I am playing with some Pink Paislee and also My Little Shoe Box for 2 more Sussies layouts. make sure you come visit us on the sussies blog Monday .. cause it`s my day to post on the blog.. . also on Monday
