Sad into Creative: Stepping into Digital Scrapbooking {finally}

It took the death of my old dog Tonsina to push me to the point of jumping in.

Here is my first attempt at Digital Scrapbooking with Stampin' Up! 's My Digital Studio software... I am pretty pleased, for a start.

    

Another birthday cake (or two)

I love the cake we made for Daughter # 2's second birthday -- and here are a couple of other cakes that we have enjoyed over the past year. This Elmo themed cake was for the third birthday:


I made Elmo punchouts for invitations -- but got way-laid and never sent them out -- so they became Valentine's for DD#2's preschool class:

Grrr...
This is the year of sickness.
I was hospitalized in January (while on Vacation) for the flu and pneumonia... and now I seem to get EVERYTHING... the stomach flu last week, then on the heels of it, this sneezy head cold and I am all clammy and yucky. I could even stamp, as my DH is around and willing to take the kids... but it is just too dang exhausting to do anything.
