*today is surgery day* :):):):):):):):)

hi all.......

we have waited for this day for almost a year....with a new insurance, we had to appeal and fight...but today is the day....by the time you read this...we should be home with Brookie resting from her day at the Children's Hospital.... for those that are new to my blog...Brookie was born with Port Wine Stains on about 70% of her body, and she has laser surgery to remove the stains....Port Wine Stains can cause blindness, so that is why she has the stains removed... :):):)  Some of you have noticed that she has two different eye colors...one of her eyes has turned green (like her brothers and my Mom's eyes)....and one never changed from the baby blue/gray that we are all born with....for this reason, she also sees an opthamologist for any problems....so, hopefully by the time you read this, all has gone well and we are at home resting :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I also wanted to share some lo's I have made.... the first being for Sketchy Thursdays :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) My title is "We are Sketchy Girls" ....and this is three of the Sketchy Thursdays girls that all happen to live in Arizona :):):):):):) Antonia, Me and Heidi and last month we went to my friends house for a crop :):):):):):):):):):):):):):) I used a NoelMignon.com kit on this lo! :):):):):) Here is the sketch this week :):):):):):):):):):)
And here is my lo :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)










And the next lo is for Scrapping the Music!!! This weeks song is, "Tiny Dancer" by Sir Elton John!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE this song!!! Again...I used a NoelMignon.com kit on this lo!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)














Thanks sooooooooooooo much for the CONGRATS yesterday on making the ScrapbookCircle.com DT!! I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooo EXCITED! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
 And speaking of ScrapbookCircle.com .... yesterday I got their July kit in the mail...and *swoon* I loveeeeeeeeeeeee it!! So I had to play...and I made this...."Vintage Love"  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)















Thanks for stopping by... :)
