What's Happening Wednesday!

I was cruising the blogs of some of my friends and I must say, there is so much crafty goodness out there in Blog Land!!!  I first stopped by Tanisha's blog.  I have been a follower of Tanisha's for some time--I can't remember how I stumbled upon her blog when I first started blogging but I have to tell you that she produces some of the most amazing projects I've seen.  Here is a sample of one of her LOs:
I then scooted over to Terry's blog and found this adorable Teddy Bear purse!  Make sure you drop by and get the instructions to make one of these yourself!
I've never been able to figure out why Janis' Blog is named "The Reluctant Scrapper" because she also produces some amazing projects!
And then Audrey is so crafty that she managed to take ordinary Poker Chips
And turn them into these little gems!
These ladies are amazing and I would encourage you to drop by and visit with them!
Happy Scrapping!

Some Cards!

I want to share some cards with you that I've made over the past few weeks.  This is a shutter card that I've been wanting to try and do for a while!
I also made a couple of Christmas cards.
I really like the color scheme in this green and white friendship
I made this card in my Stampin' Up Club--I think it's powerful in its message.
I really like the geometry of collage cards!
I think I've posted this card before--either here or at Tellen's Place but it's a pretty card and I don't mind showing it again.

Thanks so much for looking and Happy Scrapping!

Hey There!

My goodness, it's been a while!  I feel as if I've been on a mad adventure.  Well, first thing's first--I mentioned in an earlier post that I had to take some special blood tests.  The good news is that my liver (which was the cause for concern) is fine, however, the bad news is that I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.

After some research into my condition, I began to understand why I was constantly battling headaches, extreme fatigue, and why I couldn't lose any weight.  I am now counting carbs and walking daily, and to my surprise, the headaches have eased up and I've lost 5 lbs.  I am now ready to take my fitness to the next level--on our way to a nursery Saturday to buy some new shrubs for our front yard, we passed by a gym that offers a 6-week X-treme Fitness class aka Boot Camp!  After speaking with the young man who owned the gym, giving him the low down on my condition and my age, he convinced me that this is something I could do, so I signed up!!!

I am going to try and start on Tuesday, and I'll keep you updated on my progress.

My wonderful husband gave me a cruise for my 50th birthday and while I don't feel like going into the details, we missed boarding the boat by 2 minutes.  We were all devastated, but Charles would not let us wallow in our disappointment--he made lemonade!!!  We got in the car and drove down to Boca Raton for the beginning of what he dubbed our "Vagabond Vacation!  We stayed at the most fabulous Boca Resort.  The resort and its grounds were just plain delicious--in the most beautiful artwork and service and restaurants--just plain beautiful!  The best thing about it is that the building is in the Art Deco style and it's entirely pink!!!
We not only stopped in Boca Raton but in Orlando as well, where we took my mother on her first visit to Disney World!  I've posted a slideshow on the left of our weeklong adventure!

All I can say is God is Good, and we may not have gotten the vacation we wanted but we most certainly got the vacation we needed! 

My mother and I went on a Safari down in a town called Loxahatchee, FL which was totally awesome!
We saw animals there that we'd never seen before!  Needless to say, when we got back home we were all very tired and extremely happy!

Happy Scrapping!

A Digi Layout

Happy Saturday Morning!  You would not believe that I am posting from a Camper owned by my girlfriend, Valerie!  Val invited Temple and me to camp with her and Temple's BFF, Tatiana at a wonderful campground down in St. Augustine, FL.  We arrived last night after work and we'll spend the day with Val and Tati. 

When Charles called me last night, we were at this really cute little restaurant on the campgrounds having dinner.  My ever witty husband responded that, "you guys are really roughen it!"

Anywho, as I always have trouble sleeping when I'm away from home, I've been up since about 6:30am and I decided to do a digi LO of my favorite subject--Temple!!!
We have such a busy weekend planned!  We'll spend the day here in St. Augustine, tomorrow we have a barbeque to attend at one of my other girlfriend's home and Monday, we're off to the Beach!

I hope your weekend is filled with fun and a lot of joy!

Happy Scrapping!
