Tonight was Timmy's championship game for his Tyke team, the Rangers, and guess what .... we won!!! The game was a real nail biter..... both teams tying it up all along.....I thought my chest was going to explode, especially the last few seconds when we were up 6-5 and the play was in our end... ahh! My little Timmy got his first assist, woo hoo! I am so proud of you Bubby! And boy can he skate around waving one hand at the crowd and the other clutching his trophy!

I am however, a little concerned about the retreat this time around. Last time, I went with a group of girlfriends and they were the only people I knew at the retreat, tho we met a few new scrappy friends that weekend. We had such a blast. You may have seen us, we were the ones in the cute matching T's and yes we will don them again this time! It's all part of the fun! Buuutt, this time I have "met" several of you through the 2SF forum and this is were my worries lie, I cannot see more than 4-5 feet in front of me at best, so if I don't recognize you right off the hop, please don't feel offended, it's not intentional. (I have had times where I didn't recognize my husband or best friend across the street!!) I am gonna try my best but if I miss you please tell me so! Okay? Thanks!! Oh and this goes for Scrapfest, too! I really appreciate it!! See ya in a week!!!

I added journalling in the format of a little storybook to the album, this is how it reads...
Once upon a time, on an early spring day,a princess was born. Her royal parents named
named her Zaida. Zaida, a beautiful princess, was cherished by all who knew her. Zaida loved to play in the beautiful sunshine, and snuggle with her friends and family. The little princess was given fancy hair-dos and fine clothing. And she lived happily, ever after!

As silly as this picture is, I really like it. I recently came across this picture again, it was taken about a year ago at Fran's diner in Toronto. Ian and I took Timmy away for the weekend last year to do some fun kid stuff. If you know the dynamics of our family, you'd know that Timmy spends a large amount of his time with his teeenaged brothers. He was showing signs of needing to be a little kid. Ian and I were all too happy to oblige and act like kids again ourselves. We stayed at a nice hotel with an indoor pool, visited Medieval times, the ROM and a few other places, too. We had a great time! As parents we didn't need to worry about cooking or cleaning just playing, it was exactly what Timmy needed. Hmm, makes me think we should do it again!!
I recently was looking through my files for pictures to put on a "You & Me" layout that I did at a class at 2SF, this was one picture that I chose to add to the layout. What struck me as sad is, that out of the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of pictures we have of Timmy, there were only approximately 18 of him and I together. I can only blame myself for this as I hate to have my picture taken... but I have vowed to change this as I want him to remember the good times we have together, I think I will make this a belated New Years Resolution!
Now I am going to tag a couple of more people to see what results they will have in the fourth folder / fourth picture game will be ... Michelle and Cheryl, you have been tagged.

My friend, Heather, is having a baby boy in May! Her family is hosting a shower for her in April, but unfortunately I cannot attend (it's the spring retreat weekend!). I spent some time today making this card to go along with the gift I am sending. It turned out too cute to wait to post it in April ,so I thought I'd give a sneak peak now. I saw this idea in an old issue of Papercrafts magazine and modified it a little. The rattle on this card has a clear top, made with an acetate sheet, inside are some little buttons that are free floating to make the shaker aspect.
Oh by the way, heather if you see this act surprised when you receive this card!! lol

One of my favourite ways to add texture to a card or layout is by using my Cuttlebug. It is very easy to use and the effect is awesome! There are several different embossing folders available for the Cuttlebug, giving effects from whimsical to elegant, as well as seasonal themes
