Happy Monday everyone! How's your week starting off so far? Everything going well around here except had a child home today b/c she had a bad case of hives on her legs, wrists, and back yesterday, which warranted a trip to the ER. Poor Sweet Saige. She's better today tho, so shaping up to be a better day for sure.
Bailee had her Valentine dance at school a week ago and she sure looked gorgeous. I did a new haircut on her and painted her toes and fingers...she did the rest. Doesn't she look beautiful. Wow - so grown up. They were having a good time I guess until some boys (including the 8th grade class president) brought in some alcohol and decided to drink it during the dance. Ended up not so much fun, which is a bummer, as this was something they were all looking forward to.
Me, I'm still plugging away in cosmetology school and now only have 4 more months to go!!! YAY!!! So ready to be done and out there doing what I've really had a passion for for so long. I'll keep you advised as time winds down.
Hope ya'll have a great day and week. Blessings, Brenda

WHAT?? Twice in one week you say?

Happy Tuesday! I'm excited to share with ya'll another layout (this time a 2-pager) that I completed yesterday. The pictures are actually from the year before last and we all decided it would be fun to do "scared silly" pictures. I love these pics - it's funny to me how each person has an altogether different expression. I love my family! Hope your week is going well. Hugs :) Brenda

Yes it's true...I'm alive!!!

Hi all my favorite blog followers! How has life been treating ya'll? It's been good here, with general ups and downs thrown in there, but I'm alive, so it's not all bad, right?
Here's a quick rundown on my life since last posting...I started cosmetology school and am now only 5 months away from graduating as a full-fledged cosmetologist. My favorite is hair, even though I'm able to do nails, facials, etc. I just love cutting and coloring, it really stimulates my creative bone. So much better than typing for a living.
Just recently I started scrapping and making cards again after a VERY long break and thought I'd share a page with you that I made just today (ok Stacey you better leave a comment). I used CTMH papers and some other assorted trinkets I had lying around the house. I went to my sweet friend Rhonda's house and scrapped the afternoon away with her, so thanks Rhonda for having me over to spend some time in your fabulous scrap room :)
Have a fabulous week and I'll be back sooner than last time with another little project. Hugs!!!
