So I have been a little absent these days I guess!! Lots been going on....

1. I stepped down from Beary Box last month. It was a hard decision for me because they are all so awesome over there but I have to much to do and felt I wasn't able to give it 100%. Congrats to Joey who's expecting her first baby!!!

2. I have been in and out of doctors offices for a variety of reasons!! One was my leg. That was a mess. I had the biggest cankle for a week!! It was painful. Note to self... If you leg is itchy after you shave them DO NOT SCRATCH!!!!! It was all infected and... I will spare you the details. Jordan was in with a perforated ulcer in his throat. Then I was back one more time for another thing and ended up becoming the human pin cushion, not to mention the ultrasounds. I NEVER WANT TO GO BACK TO A DOCTORS OFFICE AGAIN!!!!!!

3. I am trying to get caught up on projects that I started for the store. The good news is is that the owl mini album instructions are finished!! Just needs pictures.

4. I went to the cabin with the girls at the end of Feb. That was awesome. I love going up there. No one around... that's a lie. My friend got her car stuck in the drive way (mountains of snow!!) so we had to get the guy down the street to pull us out.

5. I went to Canmore with my Mom, Gma, Amanda, Ash, Erin, Erin's mom Karel, and Eileen. Lorna always does such a good job with her retreats. We were up till 4 in the morning and up again at 8. I was so sleep deprived by the time I got home on Sunday. My sister (who doesn't scrapbook... well she does now) did an awesome Job and was up late with us every night. She is so creative that one!!

6. Jordan and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary. We are going away this weekend but went for dinner at the Japanese Village on Saturday night. That place is awesome!! GO!!!

7. It's time to get a "Big Girl Job" which makes me sad because I love working at the store and Robin and Lori are SOOOOO good to me. I've been sending out resumes left right and center. I will still work at the store though, just not as much as I do now. I love it here!!!

8. My dad is gone!! He's moved to Abu Dahbi. He will come back for two weeks in May and then they are gone for 5 years!! YIKES. I got to talk to him on yahoo chat last night. We signed I love you over the web cam and I wanted to cry. I am such a family girl that I can't imagine not seeing them all the time. Jen, Chloe, and Austin will join him there before the new school year begins. You can bet I'll be visiting next year for sure!! It looks amazing there and I am so excited for them!!!

I will try to not let this run away from me again!!!! At least once a week is my goal... HA HA HA!!!

Founds this...

on Laura's Blog. You are supposed to.....“Go into your photo archive, pick the 4th folder in the archive, select the 4th picture in the folder, and write about it. Then tag 4 other people to do the same”

It sounded like fun to me so here it is...... (and I haven't looked yet to see what it is.....)

This is me and my girl friends on New Years this year. It was a Mardi Gras theme (as you can tell by the beads hanging around our necks!!) One of my best New Years ever!!! Me and my friend Ashley (second from the right) threw it at her place. We must have had like 30 ppl there. Parties with these ladies are never dull!!

Well that was fun!! I am so excited for this weekend!!! 8 of us are heading out to Canmore for another retreat!!! My little sister is coming this time and I can't wait. I love getting out of town!!!

My Journal

So Robin and Lori bought me this Journal (Wreck this Journal by Kerri Smith) when they were in Vegas LAST year. They are so awesome to me!! If you know me, then you know I hate when my books get crumpled, stained, or WRECKED!!!! Doing this journal is almost therapeutic for me... ha ha. I have been passing it around to friends and family and have started taking pictures of everyone WRECKING my journal.
Those good looking people are my brother (Logan 18) and my sisters (Amanda 21 and Chloe 3) They all took a stab (almost literally) at the Journal. Logan set one page on fire and we almost lost the whole book... I guess it's all part of the fun. Chloe needed some encouraging to toss the book off the railing ("you aren't supposed to throw books" were her exact words) The stains were pretty fun.

I totally recommend this Journal TO EVERYONE!! So much fun. You can buy it at Urban Outfitters or Chapters.

Well that's all for me!!!!

One of those days....

Today is totally one of those days. I am soooo sick and have been for a few days now. Everything hurts from coughing so much!!!! Then..... I read something that I knew I'd get upset over (but did it anyway) Oh well right..... kicked my self in the butt there!!!!!! It's almost one of those "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all" kinda days..... but I always have something nice to say....

I had an awesome time this weekend. Didn't get to see my movie (hes just not that into you) but I did go with these ladies (see below in my latest beary box design) to the Marilyn Munro exhibit down town. It was great!!!! What a life that lady had!! Wow!!!

Speaking of Beary Box.... check out the blog every Monday (layouts) and Thursday (Cards) and take part in the competition!!!!! Joey gives away awesome prizes every week!!!

Big yay to Jordan. I now have a million games on my DS... guess what I have been doing since I was sick..............I have to say Mario Party is totally addicting!! Yikes......

I have been doing a lot of brain storming these days...... lots going on up there. I will let you know more on that after I hash it out with the girls on girls weekend.

Thanks Guys.

Hi guys.

So here is my latest Beary Box design....

I went 6x12 with this one. It was a lot of fun but harder than I thought it would be. Lynn Thune makes it look so easy!!!! I had to shrink my sketch obviously. I made this at my good friend Ashley's house. That's her in the picture. I didn't have any pictures with me so I had to borrow one from her.... LOOK, YOU MADE MY BLOG ASH!!!!!!! Love her.

I also did this one 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately the picture of this one is really really dark!!! It was on craft card stock and is actually a pretty bright page. This is my beautiful sister a couple years ago at Easter.... deep in thought.

Also my Canyon Layout is the feature layout over at calgaryscrapbooking.com. Its a web site totally devoted to Scrapbooking in Calgary. They have some awesome layouts in their gallery not to mention tips, tricks, and all you want to know about Calgary Scrapbooking.

So I have been out in Airdrie for the last week watching my sweet little sister Chloe. She is such a good girl and I am very proud to say that she made her first every scrapbooking page!! I didn't take pictures which I should have but I will next time I am out there. It was soooo adorable. She was very very proud of herself!!!

Well that is all for me.... OH apparently my little sister does read my blog from time to time so... HI AMANDA!!!!!! ha ha.
