Guest Designer

I was pretty excited to be asked to be the guest Designer this week over at Pencil Lines sketch blog. I love to go there for inspiration. I was given a sketch by the very talented Michelle Filo. So fun and got me to do my christmas pictures which is always a good thing! So thanks ladies for the opportunity! I used the new Happy Holidays line from Fancy Pants, the paper, buttons, rubons, chipboard - everything!


This next layout was for the new challenge over at Method Playground . We have the Fabulous Scarlet Namvong from Studio Calico. The challenge was to stitch on your layout. I love cross stitching anyways and stitch quite a bit so LOVED doing this layout. Was able to escape friday night and scrap with some great girls and did this layout. Come over and play with us!!Other news in the Hurd household we are currentley dealing with BARF - yummy i know. I seriously thought i was out of the woods. Ethan did it the night before his birthday last tuesday - and then was fine the next day! Totally fine! Well Saturday rolls around and I am planning for a Christmas party at my house, trying to cook, clean and do last minute things when my sweet baby girl did it. So she was so sick the rest of the night till i put her down at 6:30 for bed - didn't wake up again till the next day and was FINE on Sunday like nothing had happened. But......Ethan had the return of the bug, but worse. Then this morning baylee woke up at 5:30 and decided she still wasn't feeling well and barfed all over herself and her bed. UGH........i hope its over now - they both seem fine. All I can say is i'm lucky i have a husband that doesn't mind cleaning it up and doing the laundry. I did the cuddling and he did the cleaning. Worked out well. Hopefully we are all healthy for christmas!
