I'm all verklempt.


Karen Burniston read my blog today and said nice things about the Emily's 3 layout. Cool, huh? That's what a nice kit will do for ya and a little bit of fun ingenuity. Not much blogging time right now, as little Emily is right here wanting to play alphabet. I guess that's ok.

Today, this made me go "hmmmm" -- why does my hair and/or pores smell of onion when the shower water first hits me on the day after I eat something that's made with fresh onion? Why is that? There is absolutely no mistaking that smell of fresh onion either. We had homemade chicken noodle soup last night with plenty of fresh carrots, celery, and onion in it!

Did two layouts today. One is of the girls in 2004 before our move playing with Little People for one of the first times. The pic isn't great, but the fun sure does show. Used stuff from my stash, including Little People stickers that Santa brought me my first Christmas as a scrapbooker. I need one more MM Tag Maker rim to finish it up but thought I"d go ahead and post anyway.

Second layout is from the Lisa B QVC book. I just love all things Heidi Swapp. Well, almost all things. I'm not into the chipboard strips and a few of the other things. Still, lovin' this book!

Oh, it finally happened. One of the girls got into my sb'ing stuff while I wasn't home and dh wasn't watching them in the basement. She got Zig markers and blank shipping tags. Could have been so much worse....still, we can't trust them at all in the basement by themselves. Will the day ever come that they can play without being watched like a hawk?

Ok, so I posted the layouts backwards. No biggie....

Love the layouts! Oh my gosh, the girls with very little hair! I've only known them with long, wavy hair!

Tracey, you totally made me laugh with the "pores smelling like onions" comment. LOL. Another awesome page! I love all the pinks in your layouts... So wait, I don't get a mention when I say nice things about your layouts? LOL Just kidding. Have a good one!

Tracey, just happened upon your blog by accident when I searched Archivers and Des Moines...
I just wanted to offer you a little support. I live in the DSM area also and followed my husband on a transfer from here to the New Orleans area for two years. The culture shock between the south and the midwest is more than I think people realize until they've experienced it. I hope you're adjusting well.

I can't believe that onion thing happens to you too! It totally happens to me every time I eat onions! Freaky. There must be something to it.
