Good Tuesday morning..

How's the weather where you are today?  It's about 6:40 am (EST), the temperature is 46 degrees and there is no rain or snow in the forecast which is good for me.  My mission today is to get out and capture something Christmas-y today.  Maybe a business that is showing it's Christmas spirit or a home decorated to the nine's.  If I find something, like that, I'm gonna scrap it LOL. 

There is digital scrapbooking news on the horizon.. for January 2010 so stay tuned.

Until next time,
Let your inner whimsy flow; I do!

Layouts for some of the Deco-Pages Challenges

Hello family and friends.. I haven't posted in a couple of days.  I wish I could say I was busy scrapping but the truth is I have been having such back and leg pain, I could hardly get out of the bed.  Today, Saturday I thought I would try to sit and get a few things done ... Christmas time is upon us.   I have created a few layouts for some challenges that are held over at Deco-Pages, so I wanted to post them for you. 

These were created for the Color Challenge... They came out kinda nice I think.

 This one was for the Font Challenge.. The font is Goldilocks.. I think it's a very "whimsical" font.  I will add it to my list to use.

Well.. more scrapping to catch up on.  Hugs and Season's Greetings and Blessings Fam..

All data gone..

Aggrevated... this morning i got up to an almost non-existent programs on my computer.  I don't know what is eating up my stuff but I have to wipe it completely. There is nothing to be saved.  No programs open, nothing.  UGH!! this is not what I wanted to do and I have an updated virus .dat file.  I called HP and they said there is some type of "bot", "worm" something that they have been dealing with other customers and we all have the same symptoms.  So.. I will be down for a while to get this computer back up and running.  Be careful with your downloads.. Scan often cause this isn't any fun.  I have lost over 30 gigs of scrapbooking kits, pics, layouts, etc. 

Well .. I better get started... Chao, y'all!

Keeping us safe..

Proud Army Mother. My son is a MP currently stationed in Louisiana and will soon be deployed in early 2010.

Once I cuddled you, watched you at rest
Once I fed you at my breast
Now you’re one of our nation’s best
You’re a United States soldier.

I dried your tears and bandaged your knee
When you wanted comfort, you came to me
Now you’re defending the Land of the Free
You’re a United States soldier.

Once I told you never to fight
Unless you were standing for what is right
Now you help make up America’s might
You’re a United States soldier.

The day you left, I thought I would die
I hated for you to see me cry
How could my boy, my sweet little guy
Become a United States soldier?

Graduation day was emotional and fun
Two hundred new soldiers, each an Army of One
You said “I made it, Mom!”…I said “Hooah, son!
You’re a United States soldier!”

You’re still my baby; it will always be so
Whatever you do and wherever you go
But you’re also a man, one I’m proud to know
You’re a United States soldier.
