Hey friends...........

it's been a while hasn't it.  Feeling really guilty about neglecting this place.  We've just had alot going on.  You can usually find me at my desk with these.
Wow - i didn't realize how much time and energy goes into this - and I had also forgotten that i am not naturally smart - that i have to work at it.  That i have forgotten how to retain information and i find it going in one ear and out the other.  But i enjoy it for the most part - besides my bone head math class.

The kids also started school and so far seem to enjoy it.  Both of them have made a few friends and don't complain to much.  I'm sure in a few more months it will seem like their 'normal'.  I hope anyways.
Baylee is just going to the same Pre-School down in Ogden.  We loved teacher Andrea last year so i kept her there - we do the 30 minute drive every Monday and Wednsday - i go to the gym or study while she's there so it works out well!

I have a few projects to share - yes i have scrapped a little bit!!  Luckily i still get together once a month with a group of girls that i used to live by.  One thursday a month.  Keeps me going!  I used the new It's your Day line from Fancy Pants Designs for both projects.  I have had this butterfly Mason made out forever wanting to scrap it with a school picture and when i got this new line the colors were perfect!! 

Also a fun birthday card
This line can really be used for way more than Birthday - check out the Fall Wreath that Ronda Palazzari created with it.  SO CUTE!!

Fancy Pants is also having a Creative Team call - HELLO!!  If you love their product - jump on this - you won't regret it - i LOVE designing for them.  Unfortunately the call ends tonight - in like an hour - for some reason when i started this post - i thought that the deadline was tomorrow - sorry about that.  But if you love them - you would have known already anyways!!

Thanks for stopping in and have a fabulous day!  I'm off to study some more - have a big fat history test tomorrow!
Hugs B

I want to cry when I look at your books. I don't think I could do it. I am proud of you. I knew this move would not be good for us now we never talk. Life is crazy we still want to come and see the new place sometime. Have you done any salsa this year? Remember making salsa in your kitchen those were fun days. I felt like life was slower paced then. Seems busier when the kids get older. I miss you glad it is all working out. Call me sometime. Luv Ya Jen
