wow! march already?

I don't know where the time has gone...things have been cRaZy...but i love it when life is like that for me...i just get all jazzed up on the craziness. the stress i don't like so much but you learn to deal with it in a good way. i think a lot of working mom's feel that way too but enjoy what i do and that makes it worth it. i believe in these kids. when we stop believing in them, then we are in trouble, not them.

speaking of kids....who wants to see the cutest 1 year old? well, he was only 2 days old in the first one and 3 mos old in the second... ;)

I love these KPertiet Coded digi stamps. I use them on my photos alllllll the time!



some hidden journaling .... i remember writing this journaling at owen's tball game when the one mom next to me was on her phone yelling at her husband b/c he missed the game. hmmm?




on this one i used fabric and batting. i stuffed the fabric and then stitched the photos on top of the "pillow" ....and sock monkeys...need i say more??????


I also used some glimmer mist on these tickets...



besides the digi stuff, i got these goodies at serendipity scrapbooks and hss.
