Hello Bloggers,

It's been a few weeks since my last post I know, I know.  I am just going to show case a card and envelope I made using our latest sponsor Thebearyscrap!  I am telling you I have never played with tear bears before, but I am getting all kinds of hooked!  The images she sells range from pigs to mice, skunks and yes Bears!    She even has a tutorial that breaks everything down for you step by step.
Right now our blog is holding a challenge that is going on for a couple of more days, so come visit us at Iftheshoefitsscrapit!

Here are pics of my projects -

So like I was saying in my last post, I had decided to go Au  Well let me tell you, this is not easy what so ever!  But, I am sticking with it, I have met quite a few people that are so knowledgeable and so willing to help me and have given me great websites and tips.  My whole goal is not to cut all of my hair off, like so many.  I love my length and not quite (or ever) ready to be bald. LOL!  Once I get my hair in a decent hairstyyle, I will post a pic.  Hopefully soon.

Where my girls at???

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know that we have  an awesome challenge going on right now over at The Shoe.  The challenge is being sponsored by Kenny K Downloads!

I haven't been scrapping much for a couple of reasons.  1- getting used to three kids that all crave mommys attention at once, lol.  2- My scrap room has been looking like....well like nothing since I could barely see it for al the disarray it was in.  So my mom in law and I took it for action and it is back at a 95% workable condition.  I was able to whip this up with being surrounded by clutter.

The meaning behind this project is this:  I have decided to let my hair be natural.  For those who do not know what this means, I am not going to put anymore harsh chemicals in my hair.  These chemicals that used to straighten my hair.  I have plenty of reasons for doing this which I will share in future post along with transition photos.  This will not be an easy task, but I am willing to say that I did try and maybe encourage others that have been on the brink of trying, but could not pull themselves to do so.

Lets see...products I have used for this 8 x  8 LO, 
Copics (don't ask which colors, lol)
Journaling: Copic multiliner
Image: Kenny K (Bling Baby)
Stamp: Close to my heart - Be Yourself
Background Paper: DCWV - The Eco Stack
Flower Brads

Make sure to check out Leslie's and Cammie's pages as well!

Never entered any challenges before so I think I will try this time:
Stay tuned...

Greetings from a Full House

Its been a long time since I have posted, lol with a new baby and a full time job, it's hard. I so envy those that can do it or find the time. Every time, I think I can and try to sit down, either Kennedy is crying or Nya and Morgan are fighting (brother/sister love, lol).

Lets see what's new? I have to update you all and I guess my blog stalkers also, lol. Morgan is now ten, Nya is now four (and gets to start school this up coming Tuesday) and Kennedy is 6 months old. Time is sure
flying by!

I am also going back to Sea Duty in March :( So I'm trying to spend as much time with them as I can now. But at least it is only for two years. I am on Shore duty now, and thought it would be so much easier, which it is easier, but throw a newborn into the mix, and you know the rest, lol.

Thought I would post a few photo shoots my kiddos did with an awesome photographer from this past past Spring and this Summer.

First the Summer photos, Kennedy is 5 months, Nya 4 and Morgan 10 in these photos.

And now the Spring photos!!! These were taken first!

Kennedy at 2 months

Nya was still 3 in this Photo

Morgan was 9 here

Well I will be posting a back to school Layout soon, so stay tuned...

Our New Addition

This is going to be a quick post tonight, of course because I am tired, lol. We had our new addition Kennedy arrive Friday the 18th at 10:00 exactly. She was 9lbs 7oz and 21 inches long. OMG, she is just a precious as she wants to be and her brother and sister are just in love with her!!
I actually went into the hospital Thursday night to be induced and I ended up going into labor on my own with anything! So it was her time to come anyway, lol. We ended up being in the hospital for 5 days!! I was so ready to come home and sleep in my own bed. My poor baby had to go through phototherapy because her (jaundice) bilirubin levels were high. Phototherapy is where they are exposed to special ultraviolet lights until excessive bilirubin has been destryed and the liver matures enough to handle the load. It was awful having her under this thing with a blindfold on to protect her eyes, for almost two days. She cried, and I would pick her up comfort her, feed her, but then back she had to go.
Kennedy is good now, and we have been home for a few days and she is fitting in quite well, lol.

Back again! This time for real, lol, maybe

Hello everyone,

So I have been MIA for some time now, 6 months to be exact! LOL, well all for a good reason, for those who do not
know I am 8 months preggo and will be expecting a baby girl on the 21st of February. I actually just started feeling better recently due to my body and pregnancy have never meshed well together, lol. But, this will certainly be my last. I feel so grateful though, that my kids will have each other. I grew up an only child and I did not want that for my son, so now he will have two sisters, lol!

Okay enough with that. On IFTHESHOEFITSSCRAPIT we have a new challenge this week. Use Ribbon! We have a couple of samples up for you, but I know everyone will do great.

We have a few things coming up in the near future, so keep an eye out for that post on the challenge blog as well as on my blog here!

I would like to thank those that have been patient with me, because being preggo at 33 is no walk in the park!!

With that being said, here is my card I have created with Ribbon.

No Title Needed


It's been a long time I know. As you know I had a short 3 month deployment, then we had a huge inspection when returned as well as a follow up to the inspection. So my once normal working hours had increased to 12+ hours at work. I have sleep apnea, so this does not make it any better, so I have been super tired and had not been able to open up a scrap anything, as much as I really wanted to. I was on a design team and just could not do anything, I was going to drop, but she got me first, lol. Made things a lot easier. Wish her blog all the best!

So whats going on with me? My husband is finally moving down with me and the kids(after living in separate states for two years) Yay!! His job was just a lot better where he was. But, being all together will be a lot better. Plus I know he is tired of the commute every single weekend.

Lets see...after a few weeks of neglecting our own challenge blog and months of neglecting my spot here, I finally have something to post, lol. This was a card I did with an image from Robin's Fetish Stamps. It' s called "A Little Birdie Told Me". Make sure to stop by to see what other stamps she may have for your stamping fetish!

Well, in closing I just ask that everyone is patient with me, lol. I will be leaving for 7 months real soon, it's going to very hard for me to be with out my family and I will be in a new job actually working on the flight deck (Very Scary). I just ask for your prayers and for my safe return. In the meantime I will try and update more often and I will definitely post before I leave for deployment. I may have to email my husband my blog post and teach him how to update for me, lol (yeah right)! Have a great week!
