March Kit | Paper Camellia


Good Morning Friends!

It's reveal day for Paper Camellia today! The March kit and Add Ons have been revealed and it's full of Crate Paper, New Gold paper from Chickaniddy ( you'll want 10 of these papers! ) and MME! Yummy ;-)



Also did you know Paper Camellia now has an EVERY DAY LIFE KIT!!! ?
Oh yes ;-) look at all those goodies!



Here are my layouts for this reveal and please make sure you visit the PC blog for more awesome DT projects!

My first layout is called Sweet You
My niece is growing up so fast, she'll be 11 this year. She's at that stage where she never wants her photo taken. She hides her face or runs away from me. I usually have my iphone ready and on camera mode when i'm with her cause after me begging her for 15 minutes she usually gives in to 1 pic! I take 50 to get a good one but she doesn't know that!
I just wanted to showcase the gold, this paper from Chickaniddy is awesome for silhouette cut files - really lovely to work with. I created the hearts and the you.
the You is from Jillibean soup silhouette store.



This next layout is called Darling
Again, this is the same picture of my niece just not cropped! 
I added more gold and some wood dots on this page. Love those! I also distressed my edges a bit, i have always loved that effect and well i did that on these 3 pages this time.  Don't you love that background paper? LOVE IT!



Alright, this is my 3rd page - it's called NOT SOLID GOLD SINGERS!  This is a picture of my friends - Stephanie and Nicole. We were in Los Angeles at the time and getting ready for a day trip to hollywood. I took 3 individual pics of the girls with their shades on. I think we all love our shades and yes i need a new pair! When i added these 3 pics together using - photosheet - i wasn't sure what to do with it. I got my kit and saw those records and started singing a song from ages ago that had
867-5309 in the song.. remember that ?! and then the numbers got me singing
4321 earth below us,  ( click to listen! ) not sure why but i just went with it!
so here we are --- Not Sold Gold Singers! ;-)




those are my pages for this month's reveal ! I will have more to show you next week with a new sketch challenge from Paper Camellia  ;-)

It's Goodbye | My Fur Baby


Today I was suppose to blog about how excited I am to be joining the Jillibean Soup Design Team. How grateful i am for this opportunity and so much more but sadly I have other things to blog about. 

I have shared many photos and stories of our cat Eddie, here on my blog, my facebook page, and also on instagram. He's been in many of my scrap pages and a few more projects being posted shortly.  Today, we had to say goodbye to Eddie. He wasn't feeling well the past few days. He wasn't eating, socializing and quite frankly sending us messages he wasn't feeling well. He would only eat his Greenies and want some fresh air. Yes we left some windows slightly open for him - even in the middle of winter!


Thursday we made an appointment with the Vet, hoping to have him checked and it would be a sore tooth, or something a pill could fix.  Our vet took some xrays and saw a large mass of tissue in his stomach area.  We then scheduled an overnight IV for him to gain strength and surgery first thing this morning to see what was there.

At 11am  we got a call that surgery was impossible. This mass was about 3 Inches by 2 inches inside him and attached to other organs such as his pancreas / stomach and colon.  We sadly had to make the decision to have him put to rest.

As sad as we are today, as much as it hurts right now - we feel at peace. We feel relieved that we were able to say goodbye to him, to give him his favorite treats as his last meal, and to enjoy some cuddles and hugs just a few days prior to.  We were always worried when he went outside - even an hour a day - that something would happen but he LOVED going outside and being with his " friends! "

Eddie lived a great life - a super great kitty life! He was brought home at 8 weeks old, named Eddie after the first Big Brother winner named Eddy - at about 4 years old He had a little accident and had his tail amputated. Many cat fights, many abscesses, many scratched corneas, and even fighting through diabetes 3 years ago - he had 9 lives for sure.

So today, we say goodbye - we are sad. He really was a little baby to us. We've learned a lot from him and thankful he was there for us when we needed a little love.

thank you all for posting on facebook, and sending private messages - that means a lot to both Steve and I.  We know things will be ok, but man this sucks!

thank you Mr. buzz buzz  - you'll be missed.
