Well, my kids went outside to play and we have a fenced yard, so I hadn't checked on them for a few minutes. I went outside to find an 18 inch deep and 24 inch wide mud hole! They all had their arms in it too and I should have gotten a picture. They all got sprayed off with the hose before they came back in, but oh...were they having fun! The mess was worth the look of excitement on my 2-year-old's face!

I have a new kit in my store at GDS too:

I just got in from the Dr's and decided to visit again. What a lovely surprise to receive this two-photo template. Love the diagonal design aspects with the stitching and journaling placement. WOW, how you come up with all these various designs is way beyond my comprehension. But, keep up the good work. Your designs are everywhere and I am so proud when I see your name mentioned on a digital site. There is no question in my mind about download or purchasing your designs. I just wish I could afford to purchase so much more.

Tomorrow morning @ 7:30 a.m., I go in for outpatient surgery. The implanting of a port for continued Oncology treatment. I have had these treatments so far for about 10 months with short breaks within the past year. I hope your scrap is successful and you have many participants. So sorry that I can't join in this one. Leavin LUV! XOXOXO

I've been gone for a while traveling and just dealing with life and as of late usually barly remember to sneak in every once in a while a check your blog sporadically... And I wanted to firstly say I'm sorry I have been one that has been way to in a HURRY in life and haven't said thank you as much as I used to.

I want you to know I don't take your generosity and kindness in the giving of your time and talents in sharing your gift with us through the templates you are always giving away. I am truly grateful for your blessing in my life helping me to be able to complete layouts quicker... I still take a while to complete them, lol -- but at least with your templates it's not 4 hours per layout... maybe 2 lol

I recently (about6 weeks ago) lost over 100 of my layouts I had only backed up about 50 from the last 2 years of digi scrapping onto a separate DVD and we had a "freak" HD Back-Up issue losing almost 30GB of layouts, photos, and digi kits... that the recovery programs weren't able to recover. So, I am really going to enjoy using your templates to try completing some new layouts that I start printing right away for my family.

Anyhoo... I get off track too easy, lol I really wanted to take the time today and quit being the drive-by hit&run girl that I have the last 4-6weeks... You truly are appreciated, even by overwhelmed booty-heads like me. lol

Love You Sweetie and Truly do APPRECIATE everything you do!!!
Blessings, Shawna

Mud!!! Even heard of a book called "Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud"? That's the first thing that came to mind in reading about your kiddos mud adventure! (a fun read for preschoolers!) Thanks again for a cool new freebie!

Haha, I know just what you mean about the mud, my 6 year old daughter still does that. Yesterday I went out to find that she had filled a sled with water and then turned it into a mud bath that she was laying on. The joke was on her though, she forgot our hot water heater died the other day and had to be showered in freezing water. When she was 2 she was outside with her bro and dad and my son comes in and says "guess what your precious little girl is doing" and so I went out to find a huge mudpit she had created with the hose and a tiny little blond wearing a pink dress and pink satin shoes a completely covered in mud. I did take pics of that one. There wasn't a single spot on her that wasn't brown! And even though he was only about 10 feet away my DH didn't even notice. Thanks for all of the great templates. I unfortunately missed this one due to some family problems which kept me away from my beloved PC, but I love the others that I've caught in time!

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove box...an unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.

  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
