Digging Digi

Well with much persuasion over the past months, I finally decided that it was time to try my hand at some digital layouts.
Although Peggy and several others thought that this was something I should have tried my hand at a long time ago, I only really started because Dawn asked me to join her in a crop at DST.
The chat was BRING A FRIEND, and for attending you received the most amazing kit that was designed by the DST design team. This is what I used to get started with digi scrapping. THANK YOU to all those that created this marvelous kit...it truly is beautiful!
Although I can't see me going totally digital, I am loving the opportunity to play in my PSP program and see what I can do while I am just sitting in front of the computer and not playing with my paper.
Here are just a few of the layouts I have done....hope you enjoy!

I can SEE!!!!

Ok.....well not me, but my son!!!

Since he moved out of the house, he was finding that he was getting more headaches and his vision would get blurry after being on the computer for extended periods of time.

He has never had any problems with his eyes in the past, but I told him that it wasn't something to be delaying in getting checked out.

He got his appointment set up to have his eyes tested, and found out that he has Estigmatism in both of his eyes. No wonder he was having difficulties!

He sent me this new photo of himself......isn't he just so handsome? (although I did tell him he needed to shave)
I can't believe how much he has matured in his facial features in the short period of time since he moved out of the house. My boy is definitely a MAN now!!!!!

Baby, I am so proud of you!!! Keep up the great work honey...you are going places!


Last weekend was our Thanksgiving here in Canada. The weather was absolutely beautiful, that it was actually hard to believe that it was October. The weekend was full of all kinds of preparations, but I just love this time of year.

We usually try and get out and enjoy the sites, and visit the festivals in the area, when the weather allows it. This year, the weather was PERFECT and it really allowed us to get out and enjoy each other's time, and to reflect on all those things that we truly are thankful for.

I am so thankful for having the time with my family that I do. As the boys grow older, I find myself missing being with them and doing family things, but it also makes me thankful for those bits and pieces of time that we do get to spend time together.

I am thankful everyday for the love that I have found with Rob.

I am thankful for my sight. To view nature's beauty this time of year is something that brings me much joy.

I am thankful for knowing that God believes that I am strong, as he only let's things happen that he knows you are strong enough to endure. And I definitely have been tested as of late.

I am thankful that I have my father still with me, and that I get the pleasure of being with him every day. Together we are able to remember MOM and keep her memory alive.

I am thankful for all my friends, both online and off, who have ever been there to listen to me and were there to understand and support me.

Take a moment in your day and reflect about the little things that you are thankful for. You will feel sooooooo good afterwards. TRUST ME!!!

Counting down the days:)

Been tagged AGAIN (by 2 different people) ;)

Well I have been tagged by both Dawn and Charlee....

Now I am suppose to tell you all 5 weird things about me, but gee, what constitutes as WEIRD????

1. I cut my pinky finger off and had to have it reattached--I didn't feel it and only wanted a bandaide to put on it, so I could finish washing dishes.

2. My right hand is constantly ice cold, no matter what time of year it is.

3. I don't drive.

4. I married someone that grew up a couple of blocks away from where I grew up, and yet we never met until we were older.

5. I need to sleep with a sheet on my shoulders no matter what time of year it is.....because my shoulders always get cold.

OK>.....now I have to see if there is anyone out there that I can tag.

Have to go and teach

Well, here we are, Thursday again, already!
It is so hard to believe that this week is just about over again. Where does the time go?

I have had a busy day of things here, but mostly I have been prepping for tonight's class. Punching pieces for a large class really can take a good chunk of your day away, but I don't mind.

I love being able to go up to the store and see the gals, have a laugh, and see how each page can turn out just a little bit different.
Tonight's class is Pumpkin Patch Punchart. (my own punchart creations)
Multiply that many pieces X15 for each gal in the class, and I tell you, you sure do lose a lot of time out of the day. But I am at least prepared, and everything is punched and bagged ready to go.

I thought I might actually get the chance to work on something for me, but that doesn't look like it is going to happen. I will just have to hope that tomorrow will leave me some ME time!

Hanging out

This time of year is always so nice for getting out and going for walks. This past weekend, Rob and I managed to get out and enjoy the weather. I just love going for a walk and seeing the colours changing on the trees, and watching the squirrels scampering through the park getting ready for the winter.
The sun was out, the air was crisp, but it was so wonderful to just be out and being together.
Here are some photos we took of our trip to the park! We just love to have fun!
