*an amazing day* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all... 

Wowwwww...a busy... but amazing day! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

A little over a week ago...Brookie was getting into her car seat and the arms of the car seat burned her arms (we live in Arizona... and its still over 100 degrees every day) ....so I was thinking what I could do to cool them down.. so I approached my dear friend Chris (*love her*) and asked her if she could knit something to cover the arms (YOU really need to check Chris out... she is AMAZING!! She scrapbooks, paints, knits, quilts...I do not think there is a craft that Chris does not ROCK at!!)
Sooooooooooo Chris suggested that she quilt some sleeves for her car seat...I was like....WHOA! You are a genius (Can you see why I love her??!!??) ....and I sent her the measurements of the arms of her car seat...and TODAY we got them in the mail!! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! Thanks Chris!! BROOKIE was sooooooooooooo happy!! She saw the material and said... "Look Mama, its the alphabet for my seat!" (the material had abc's on it!) ... SHE LOVES IT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Here is Brookie showing them off! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


and here they are in action!! We LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE them soooooooooooo MUCH Chris! THANK YOU! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)




And Chris sent me a card and a necklace that she made... (she is sooooooooo talented!) ... you will see the necklace later on in this post!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


After we got our HAPPY MAIL from Chris.. we went to the park! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)





 *i love her new skirt* :):):):):):):):):):):):):)



 *ready set go* :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

*And I am wearing the necklace that Chris made for me!* YAY! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)



 *playing hide and seek with Daddy* :):):):):):):):):):)






And then I was honored when my dear friend Sherry asked me to come over and help her get started on learning how to scrap :):):):):):):):) I loveeeeeeeeeeee this woman!! She has the biggest heart... and is beautiful inside and out! I had soooooooooooo much fun with her and I got to meet her hubby... who was just soooooooo sweet! Thanks Sherry for having me over today!! Sooooooooooo excited that you wanted to learn to scrapbook and that you asked me to help! :):):):):):):):):) And anyone that knows me has got to know my NUMBER ONE rule that I gave to Sherry about scrapbooking... right??? :):):):):):):):):):):) Well... ok... maybe that was a broad one... LOL... sooooooo my NUMBER ONE rule... there is NO WRONG in scrapbooking.. we all create our own way.. we all create what fits us.. and it DOES NOT matter what it looks like in the end.. what matters is that you created a page that the next generation will appreciate!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) And SHERRY ROCKED IT!! She made three pages and a CARD while I was there!! GO SHERRY! :):):):):):):):):):):) And here she is scrapping! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And here we are together! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And here is the cutest little Halloween decoration she gave me as a present! :):):) LOVE IT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


*phew* busy day... but an AWESOME one!!! Thanks for stopping by... I really appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  10. Wow, BrookieWolek is "rockin" that skirt.........I love it. Having been to Scotland a few times and having just a wee touch of Scottish blood in me, I just love the plaid. The tulle just takes it over the top! I'm so glad you got Sherry scrapbooking. I hate it that you ladies are WAAAAAAAAAAAY over on the other side (almost California) and we're not able to get together more often. Hopefully she's gonna' comer over here to play with clay. She may not be able to speak well or loudly, but through art she can be heard 'round' the world. Thanks for sharing so much with us on a regular basis Julie. You have a beautiful life, and family and you deserve it girl.

    Hugs,
    Meri

  11. Oh Julie Sweetie...
    What a wonderful time we had yesterday. I so enjoyed learning about scrapbooking, and my book will be full soon, this I know to be true and I too will be buying 12 x 12 tubs to fill with pages. I love the card you showed me how to make. I'll be making several of those for sure. One for all occasions. Yeahhh!!!

    You are a jewel my friend, and I so enjoyed being with someone who was able to understand what I said and can love me just the way that I am.

    Thank you sweet Julie, you so lit a fire in me to create. You will be seeing pages believe me.

    I love the park photos, how sweet they are. Ms Brookie is sweet in everything, but she looks so sweet in that tutu skirt. Love it.

    So glad that you loved you Halloween decoration. I just knew it was you when I saw it.

    Have a gorgeous Sunday traveling. I can't wait to see the photos.

    Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

  13. Oh I LOVE those photos!!! The park is my fave place to snap pix.....its about the only place i can get candid shots of Jesse without him posing for every single shot....lol. You REALLY need to do your own scrap class girl....I have the sickest visual in my head of you dressed like a scrappy nun (the sick part is that I even visualize scrappy nuns!!!)and whacking your students with rulers yelling LET IT FLOW!!!!!! LOL....Or have you seen that R L Ermy Gieco comercial ....the dude from full metal jacket? LOLOL...I kill me :)

  15. The covers are a great idea, although just come to Ohio, it's only 60 degrees so you would just need a jacket instead lol! And that skirt is beyond cute!!
