It's begining to look a lot like Christmas

Posted by PicasaIt's about time for me to update my blog - I don't have any recent layouts photographed so, I decided this one of Niko at 2 would work.  He is soooo into Christmas.  So un-like his daddy.  He went to bed thinking about the candy he's going to get from the Advent Calendar tomorrow morning - now if I can only find it in all the Christmas stuff that is yet to be unpacked...

I'm so excited my baby sister and her family are planning on coming to Texas for Christmas.  It will be so much fun to share Christmas and Austin with them. 

Better get busy unpacking those boxes!

Genuine Sweetie

This is Madeline, my Genuine Sweetie (or as Niko says - well almost).  This was a picture of her at Crowe's Nest farm last year.  I completed it for the Pagerize This Challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  I wanted to keep with the circle and the scallop idea Christy had going on her page - and I just happened to have this scalloped circle paper!  Thanks Christy for the inspiration.

It's not too late for you to take the Pagerize This Challenge.  See how you can submit your page and be eligible to be chosen as the next Pagerizer in the Pagerize This Challenge at Scrap Our Stash (link above).

My weight loss in Watermelon

Posted by PicasaNot only did I want to share my layout - which I am very proud of... I also wanted to share the story behind it. 

I started dieting on March 21st - and then 10 days later joined Weight Watchers.  On May 2, 2010 I had lost 14 pounds.  Niko and I were at the grocery store - and he wanted to buy a watermelon.  When I picked this one up - I noted how heavy it was.  Niko suggested we weight it.  It weighted 14 pounds.  There was no way I couldn't buy that one at that point.  As a true scrappinpsycho - I was already thinking this would make a great layout. 

Of course when we got the watermelon home - I had to have Niko take a picture of me with the watermelon - and I also had everyone who came in contact with the watermelon - pick it up and see how heavy it was!

My next leighout (get it) - is me with my youngest grandson - I've now lost my weight in Jonathan. 

This was my Show N' Tell Sunday at Scrap our Stash. Check out all the details on how you can share a Show N' Tell at SOS.
