Another Digi LO!

Here is my second Digi LO! I used a template on this one from Lollipop Press DT member Erin Ostgulen. You can get it here. I used some more digi freebies from previous downloads over the past few months. I have a new kit from LP that I can hardly wait to use today! You can see it here in the store tab under the Beach Boy line, can't wait to play with the papers on this one!!!!!!!!

DJ's mom was moved from the rehab location back to Del Webb last night. They cant get a good blood pressure reading on her and her liver isn't functioning right. These are both known problems with his mom, and not a surprise to us that she's having these problems. However they are very serious problems and if not regulated quickly they are life threatening. So we are sleeping with all the phones kept on waiting for them to ring these days. Keep the prayers coming, I know they can help both DJ and his mom. Thanks for the support and for every prayer and kind thought!

First digi LO :)

I have been participating in a blog hop this week from Lollipop Press and got really inspired to try some digi scrapping. I don't have any temples so I just used my limited knowledge of photoshop and some freebies I've collected over the past few months. I really like how it turned out!

In other news we got a call on the way to my birthday breakfast that DJ's mom had fallen and broken her hip in three places. DJ has been trying to spend as much time with her in the hospital as he can. She's pretty out of it and some of the things she says are affecting him, even though he says he's ok. She's been talking about how everything is her fault and how proud she is of Caden. DJ's very fearful that she's giving up and will not fight to get better. So any extra prayers you have for her recovery and DJ's well being would be very much appreciated. His faith is struggling these days and he's trying very hard to just fake it right now, but again I can tell it's thin these days. So kind words, calls and texts would be great for him in this time. Thanks :)

New Photo Shoot Up - Flores family

This is my third year taking this lovely families photos. I took Neveah's photo's the first time when she was six months old. Now she's a grown up little kid of almost 4!!!!! Holy Cow. And Destiny is starting to resemble a teenager more in every photo I take of her. I love this family, just truly good hearted solid people. Go check them out over on my photography blog

The rest of the scrappy goods

Ok here are the rest of this past 6 months or so of scrappy pages. Please forgive the horrible photos but it's late and I don't want to mess with them any more, lol. And as always most have some element of a lift, either a concept or an embellishment idea.

 This is my most recent and I am proud to say an original :)
 Also an original :)
 I scrapped this whole page solely for the quote "If I hadn't become a mom I would have had a quieter life, but who wants quiet."

 Totally want to frame this one! Caden's blessing day.

 This one should read Live out Loud but I realized after the photo was taken that the L on Live was missing...doh.
So now I've caught you all up with the scrappy business over here. I've got the bug bad so I'm sure I'll have more to share soon!

Scrappy update

I realized it's been forever since I posted my scrappy adventures, so here you go. These are the last 6+ months of scrappy goodness. I have about 6 more to photograph then I'll be caught up with my recent work :)

 See through :)

 This one hangs in my office.

 I have this one on display in the family room (my favorite of all time)

 I included a flip up page and put the bears birth certificate underneath.

Nothing too exciting and all of them have lifted elements, but I do love looking at them and really that's what it's all about!
