You Say the Darndest Things, New Dress...and its MOVING day!! :):):):):):):):):)

Hi all :):):):):)

This post has been pre-written because today is MOVING day!!!! EEEEKKKK!! After months and months and MONTHS of packing and getting ready....the big day is FINALLY here... I will be catching up with all of you as soon as I get settled in... I promise! You all know that when I am gone for a little bit... I never forget you all... I just have to catch up when I am back in the swing of things! :):):):):):):):):):) If you need my new address, please be sure to email me at :):):):):)

Today is the latest challenge over at Nikki Sivils! :):):):):):)
Since April is the month of April Fools Day...this time we want to see what make YOU LAUGH!! Funny thing that happened, funny things your kids say... :):):)

I chose to document some of the funny things Brookie has said!! I have literally been keeping scraps of paper in a pile that have all these ADORABLE sayings she has said in the past year! :):):)

I used Nikki Sivils "Summer" line on this layout :)

The journaling reads:
"I'm playing lights on, lights off" - Your response when I asked you why you were turning the lights on and off!

You: "I've got some paperwork to do!"
Me: "What kind?"
You: "You know - some coloring, some drawing, some gluing - you know - Paperwork!"

"I need a bigger tiara...this one is too small for me... I am growing you know!" 

"Do you want to play something exciting? Not like this, cause this is NOT exciting at ALL!"

"You want to play on my bed? It's more comfortable...I have pillows you know!" 

You to Adam: "Abum, you need to use your manners! You need to say Please and Thank You!"

"I'm FOUR...I need to go to High School now!"

"Yep! I am FOUR you know...I can do this!" 

I'm telling you... this girl keeps us entertained! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Today is also the latest challenge is live on FAVE THINGS!! This time we want to know your FAVE THING about SPRING!! YAY!!! I want to thank FAVE THINGS DT member Chris for writing today's post for me... with moving and everything, she was the first of many of my girls that stepped up to the plate to help me get today's post live! I appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):)

I made my FAVE thing about Spring layout about Brookie's new Easter Dress!! This girl LOVES to dress up (like you guys didn't know that! LOL!) and I love to see her in Spring dresses!! Everything on my layout is from :):):)  **edited to add...I have had some people ask me what the yellow background is... it is new Pink Paislee House of 3 Tissue Paper that I got from BlueMoon!** :)

The Princess and the crab...and an update on my Mom! :):):):):):)

Hi all.....

I wanted to give an update on my Mom! :)  My Dad called me last night and told me that all went well with her surgery...she had to have a plate put in her wrist to 'fix' the break...I truly appreciate the thoughts and prayers for her... I can not tell you how much it means to me :):):):):):):)

And tomorrow is moving today we are having a big Yard Sale! Wish us luck! :)

Today, I have a layout posted over on Blue Moon's blog  (it will be live on there at 8AM MST) :):):):)

Carnival FUN! :):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi everyone! :):):)

Thanks so MUCH for the prayers for my Mom and her wrist, I know she appreciates them... she is having surgery today, and as soon as I hear from my Dad.... I will get an update on here and on FB! :):):)

I also want to send my prayers to those in the southern states... I have seen the news reports of the devastating tornadoes...and have been saddened by all the destruction... my thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the storms....

Today is also Thursday, which means its time for a brand new Sketchy Thursdays! :)

Here is our sketch this week! :):):):):):)

And here is my take on it... I used "Fun House" from GCD Studios that I got from! :):):):):):):):)

And today I also have my SECOND "Showcase on YOU" on Nikki Sivils blog!!! Go check out all the GORGEOUS creations that were sent to me this month!! YAY!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Have faith :):):)

Hi everyone :):):)

Wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for my Mom... her surgery is scheduled for tomorrow...and I will give an update when I can :):):):):)

I took a break from packing today to create a layout! lol! Yes, I took a break ... Well...actually, I ran out of boxes and have to wait for Brian to bring more home! LOL :) And YES! I do have my scrappy stuff out... long story short, I go to my friend Krista's house at least once a month for a crop, so I always keep my scrappy stuff in my rolling tote... so since that is easy to transport, I don't have to pack it! :)

I wanted to share a layout I made for a challenge over at Sarah Hurley's challenge blog :)  It was a sketch challenge :)  I made this to reflect a few things... our move that is happening in three days... and incorporating my OLW for 2011..which is "Faith"...... :):):):):):):):)

Everything on my layout is from (except for the title sticker, which is from SRM Stickers) :)

Here is the sketch :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):)

Total Randomness or Chaos...*whatev* :):):):):)

Hi everyone :):):):):):):)

It is FOUR days until we move.... wow... it seems like we have been planning this all year, and now its almost here :):):):):):):):)

Wanted to share some total randomness today :)

But, before I get started on that...I wanted to thank you all for the kind words for my Mom and her broken wrist.. I really appreciate it... a little update, she had to go back to the ER on Sunday night because the pain would not go away... and come to find out, she actually broke her wrist in TWO places and has to have surgery on it on Thursday... *sigh* so if you could say a little prayer for her... I would really appreciate it :)

Miss Brookie got her face painted at school last week :)

This is pretty much what my house consists of RIGHT now... lol :)

Pretty soon (REAL SOON!!) We will be saying good-bye to this number....

And saying hello to this one.....

And I wanted to share some layouts I made awhile ago using Nikki Sivils "My Friend Birdie"  and "It's Your Day" lines! :):):):):):):):):)

And speaking of Nikki Sivils... today is the day that I do my monthly "Showcase on YOU!" over on her blog!! I am totally blown away every month on the number of entries I get...and this month is NO fact, we had so many this month, I will be doing TWO posts for the "Showcase on YOU!" this month!! YAY! :):):):):):):):):) I would really appreciate if you would head over to Nikki's BLOG to see today's showcase!! I KNOW you will LOVE it... cause today... I am WAY giddy, as I had a FOUR YEAR OLD and a FIVE YEAR OLD send me projects (well, okay...their Mom's did...but still! LOL!) and I am proud to say, they are the YOUNGEST peeps I have ever showcased (before today's post, the youngest I have ever showcased was my friend and fellow Nikki DT member Deana's daughter Bryn!)

Thanks sooooooo much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):)
