Bright cards to beat the blahs!

I decided to make some bright cards to battle the morning sickness! Creating Keepsakes featured this color combo this month, and I really love it.

And I never posted these fun cards I made during the Christmas rush, but they're so much fun I can't resist!

My Big News!

Our big news for a Happy New Year -- we are expecting a baby! The due date is Sept. 1st, and we're so excited. I'm also totally freaked out, because my first two pregnancies were no walk in the park. With Sammy I was horribly sick for the first 5 months. With Joshy it was all 9 months, plus I was on bedrest for the last 3 months. I worked really hard during 2007 and lost 57 lbs, so I'm hoping that will help. Here's my last layout from my weight loss scrapbook! It uses the same digi-kit I used for my mom's party -- I just love it!

And here's my first layout for my little pregnancy journal. I've never done a real pregnancy journal before, but I have a lot of thoughts I want to get down right now. I got some super cute 4x6 albums from Target, and I'm going to use them so I can just slide the 4x6 pics in and create 4x6 journalling cards. For the album I bought a luscious digi-kit called "Meadow Bliss" by "Designs by Mindy" from It has some really gorgeous stuff in it, so I can't wait to use it! I also got the super-cool Bamboo Fun pen tablet for Christmas (thanks, Mom and Dad!), which I used for the handwriting and doodled scallops on this layout. So fun!
