Sample Baby Shower Invites

As some of you may or may not know, my bestest friend Mo is pregnant with her third child!!! Of course I told her that I would love to do her invites and announcements (pictures of the other invite and announcement I did for her second child - my godson, will eventually be posted) so I came up with a girl sample and a boy sample (the same yet different colors)....Let me know what you think.....



The front of the card has an actual little wire hanger, the back is blank but would have the information for a shower typed in a really cute font.....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MO!!!

Today is Monica's birthday - Monica is my bestest friend in the whole wide world. I have known her for ever!! I was reading on a blog about happiness and it made me think of all the things that me and Mo have gone through in life....we've been there for each other since I can remember. Her children are the apples of my eyeballs!! Johnny, who will be turning 12 in October is my angel. An ex-boyfriend, and my first true love, passed away (actually on Monica's bday 12 years ago) and I was in a bad depression. The only thing that kept me alive (seriously) is the fact that she was pregnant. I wanted to see my nephew (since I don't have bros and sis', my friends kids and boyfriends nieces and nephews are my nieces and nephews) being born and grow up. I'm so thankful for hanging around because I've watched Johnny go from a little man (he was a little man the day he was born) to a pre-teen and it's been exciting. Next is Ian, my godchild and Monica's second....I will have to tell the story of becoming a godmother the next time around....any who, Ian, Mr. Pistol is a hoot and riot to be around.....now Monica is pregnant with another. Around August 12th, she will find out if it's a boy or girl, regardless I'm so excited....I'm creating her baby shower invites (again, will post what the first ones looked like) and will be doing her announcements.....All I can say is Mo is the bestest friend in the whole wide world and I've never been more blessed to have her and her entire family in my life....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MO!!

Until next time,
TTFN

Okay, so I sort of lied....

I was going to post a picture of my "Alter This" and July Contest Kit Challenge with the hopes of giving it away as blog candy. Well low and behold, the designer tape, which I do love, is not doing it's job and not sticking down. I don't feel comfortable having some win something that I'm not really proud of because it's almost like it's falling apart. I will post some pictures of it later and if you're part of the RSS group, you can view my pictures in both folders. Sorry...I will have to get a nice little package going for another candy post later this week or next!!!

Auntie Margie's Wedding....

Auntie Margie is my boyfriend's aunt. She got married on Father's Day of last year. I was fortunate to be asked to be in the wedding. You do not know how long I've been waiting for these pictures. Auntie Margie has been very busy so I became proactive and sent her two CDs and a return envelope.....I got them in a couple of days. THANKS AUNTIE MARGIE!!

This is a great picture of Auntie Margie and Gee.....



This is a perfect picture of Granny (Auntie Margie's Mom, my boyfriend's Grandmother - hence we call her Granny)

Now as you can see, the spray tan didn't really take effect. For those of you who don't know who I am, I'm the one that doesn't go......


I will probably post more pictures down the road, along with my Godson and nephew in the pool Saturday and my craft closet.
TTFN,

OMG - CRAZINESS

Hey Everyone,

I have so much going on, not really, but for me, really....

My best friend and her family are coming up tomorrow to swim..Hopefully the weather will be good :-) Since she is bringing my two nephews and godson, I also invited my cousin and her kids (no word if they are going to make it) and a friend from work and her child....I cannot wait.

Even better? I'm actually going to go bowl in a tournament next weekend. I'm nervous and excited. It's not like I'm a good bowler but I do enjoy it!!

Alright, I will be posting pictures and videos from this weekend and my godson's birthday party from two weeks ago VERY SOON!! Promise...

TTFN (ta ta for now)

I have a SISTAH....

I have a new sistah and her name is Laura.....I only "got" her yesterday and we are already typing like old friends.....

I cannot tell you how excited I am to get to know her.....

We "hooked up" through a Bella Yahoo Group......you fill out a questionnaire and then the sistah moderator takes her time and matches people up. You get to know each other over a period of three months and do little things for each other....

My sistah lives in Texas and we are IM'ing as I type now so I gotta go....

More to follow....

Introducing a new face....and my lovely weekend....

First I would like to introduce you to a cutie-patootie named Ella....She is a friend's baby and is so fun to be around. Now you cannot tell me how cute she is...She is starting to walk and says da-da.




As for my weekend....All I have been doing today is LAUNDRY!! I'm actually almost done so there will be no more dirty clothes (of course as of right now). My bf is currently in Fresno at some bike get together....I will be making some graduation samples for another friend of mine's daughter (graduating high school) and will also post the black and white with a pop swap I received Friday.....

I am so broken

I cannot tell you how bad my back hurts!! Let me tell ya the story...I had a NIGHTMARE so bad that I twisted my back. It was one of those dreams where you're at your own home so it feels real and not a dream. I look over at my bf (in my dream) and there is some guy standing over him and he lunges for me. I scream (in my dream) which I hear in real life so I wake up because I try to twist and get out of bed and hurt my back. I'm waiting for a call from Physical Therapy so I can hopefully get a deep heat treatment. That's all for now folks...

#1 Giants Fan

The first picture shows Ian watching his big brother Johnny at baseball practice. My nephew Johnny is a really good ball player! When he was little, when he should've been playing T-Ball (the kind of baseball where you put the ball on the pole and then the kids hit it from there - not being pitched to), by bff lied about his age and got him into regular kids baseball (where the kids get pitched to) and he held his own....Big Leagues - you better watch out....The last picture is Ian smiling....

OMG - I saw my first Blog Hop from Papertrey Ink and the winner is Kimberley Crawford. She created the most AMAZING project which can be found HERE.
