Life is good!

I haven't blogged in a while so I thought I'd get on here real quick while I had a minute.  I am feeling really good.  I'm 14 weeks along now!  I had a doctor's appointment on Monday.  It was pretty standard stuff.  I got to hear the heartbeat.  It did take them a long time to find it so that scared me some, but then there it was nice and strong.  We are scheduled for another ultrasound on October 13th where hopefully we will find out what we are having.

My stud muffin hubby completed the MS 150 this past weekend.  It was a ride from St. Augustine to Daytona Beach one day and back the next.  He's done this ride or one of the other Florida rides for the past ten years. I'm so proud of him!  Benjamin and I had a good time in Daytona Beach while Daddy rode.  We met up with a friend on Sunday and played by the pool.

Benjamin is an amazing little man.  I can't believe how big he is and how much he can do now.  He is a little climbing monkey so I try to bring him to as many places as I can to get all that energy out.  He's talking a little more.  He's really good at bye bye now!

Here are a couple new layouts from me.

This lo was done for the Color Challenge at Digital Candy.  The papers and elements are from Just a Boy by Angie Kovacs.  The swirls are from Splash by Lazy Kitty and have been recolored. The tear was made using the wild tear action from Atomic Cupcake.  The font is Curlz MT.

This next lo is for the Candy Jar Challenge at Digital Candy.  This is a baby pic of me!  I used Summer Romance Add On by Trish H. Designs, Scripty Brushes and Gold Hot Spots by Trish Jones Designs, and Date Bit by Misty Cato.
These next 2 lo's both use Blushing Blues by Sherrys Scraps.

And check out the cool new products I was able to test for Mega-Doodle Inspired and are available now!  Check out her blog for her many store locations where you can pick up these cool products.  This first 2 are these cool football brushes/word art.



And here is a cute little lo I made of my football watching men.

Her newest product is 3 actions for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements to make 3 cool stickers, a transparent sticker, a puffy transparent sticker, and a super puffy transparent sticker.

Perspective

There are so many times when motherhood makes me frustrated.  This is the hardest job I've ever had, but it is also the best and most rewarding.  I saw this video and it reminded me how lucky I am.  I am so grateful for everything I have:  my husband, my son, and my unborn child. So when Benjamin decides to wake up at 4:45 a.m. I will try to remember how lucky I am.  I sincerely hope that everyone's wishes come true.

Happy Birthday to me! I'm a PSE tester for Mega-Doodle Inspired!!

Today's my birthday!! I'm 35!! Ahhh, that sounds old! I woke up this morning, before 5 a.m. thanks to my teething son, and found a gift from my wonderful husband. The New Kids on the Block newest CD. LOL! I can't wait to listen to that one!
I'm so excited because I was accepted as a PSE tester for Mega-Doodle Inspired! I've always admired her work so I'm thrilled to get to play with her new products. What does this mean for you? Freebies!! Brandy of Mega-Doodle Inspired is so generous as to let us offer our blog readers freebies with her products! Stay tuned for the freebies!!

Here are a couple new lo's. Both of these lo's are made with Father's Day Kit by RS Designs.

Some new lo's to share!

I've done some fun scrapping in the last couple of days and I thought I'd share my lo's. Here is another wedding lo.


For this lo I used Blue Butter Bouqet by Scrap Kitten Designs. The font is Anmari.

Next I have a couple belly lo's from 10 and 11 weeks.

This is a recipe card lo I did for The Digi Twins challenge at Digital Candy. The category for August was salads. For September it is soup. Here is my sald recipe card.

Another challenge I did last month was the template challenge at The Digi Chick. I definitely think I will be doing more challenges because they are such great motivation to scrap. Here is my lo for that template challenge.

And one more. A lo of my crayon eating son!
