Gorgeous Collection: Oranges

Hi All!

It's been a busy week. I finished up with summer school, did interviews for paraprofessional positions (3 positions...19 interviews...phew) in my classroom, had to find a new loan for the house (don't get me started), and began a second round of fertility meds (this last round was unsuccessful...I'm still hopeful).

So, sorry to keep you waiting, but here is the Orange papers for the Gorgeous Collection. I hope you like them.

Happy Scrapping!

Well, tomorrow I get to babysit my cute little nephew...he's getting so big. Maybe I'll take some pics and post them. Then this weekend Joe and I are going to look at furniture for the new house and maybe head over to the house and take measurements for window blinds. We'll see.

Anyway, hope you like the papers...and as always, I LOVE your words of encouragement!

Fertility Update...

I just got back from my Reproductive Endocrinologist and was informed that I have a nice sized follicle (where the egg is released) on the Left side (actually 2, but probably only the largest will release)! Perfect, that is the side with a tube so my chances for getting pregnant this cycle are...get this...NORMAL! WOW! I have to give myself a trigger shot tonight to encourage the follicle to release it's egg...which I'm very nervous about...I don't like needles. Then it's business as usual and then wait to see what happens.

Anyway, I just wanted to share that I was pretty excited about what I found out at the Dr.

I learned something new today in the wonderful world of digiscrapping...there's this thing called RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) where digital scrappers take pictures from fellow digiscrapping pals and create a LO for them. SOOOO...I decided to do one for my friend Jeanne over at Creative Bliss. I hope she likes it...I snagged a photo of her cute daughter Jessica from her blog...hope she doesn't mind :)

Here it is -Credits:
CGammon - "Sweet Pea" @ Scrap Artist
AAbney - "Color Wonderful" @ Scrap Artist
MLima - "FrancheCompte" @ Little Dreamer Designs
EMerrit - "Doodle Trims" @ Little Dreamer Designs
MColeman - "Girl Power" @ Little Dreamer Designs

There you have it! Hope you like it Jeanne!


Summer Sunset

Okay...I've finished the papers for this kit and added in a little sneak peak of what you might find in the elements! :) I absolutely LOVE the colors in this kit...I hope you like them as much as I do! I had a lot of fun creating the papers in this kit and I hope you have as much fun using them to scrap your memories!

If you like the papers and use them in a layout I really WANT to see them...please post a link to your blog or send me an email.

As always, any comments or suggestions are welcome and will help me become a better designer!

Sweet Boy

Here is my latest LO...I had lots of fun doing this and actually scraplifted from July Guest Creative Goddess "Ivana" at Scrap is her LO
And my take (with my little nephew...he's quit the little chubbers...super cute):

(Click for Credits)

I've recovered from my surgery and my right tube was completely removed. I started on Clomid (this encourages more eggs to mature) and have been MISERABLE on them. LOADS of Hot Flashes, Nausea, Headaches, Heartburn, and Fuzziness. YUCK! One more day of pills and we'll see if it works. Finger crossed!!!!!

Joe and I also found a house and are praying things work out so that we can close on August 8...the day before my 31st birthday...NICE BIG PRESENT!!! I don't have a picture to post right now but it's a cute, old house that is perfect for us to start out in. It will need some work, but that's okay 'cause we want to make it OUR home...
