I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! Mother's Day here was pretty much overshadowed by Aidan's 7th birthday and the move of course. But that's okay - my husband was very sweet and the kids colored the wrapping paper on their presents for me and it was very festive and fun. David got 3 kits to make stepping stones for the garden in the new house - 1 for each kid of course. It is perfect, it will be wonderful to make them with the kids and put them in the garden and see them everyday.
Aidan's 7th birthday was on Saturday but we celebrated on Friday night and on Sunday. He received lots of HO train things including a new engine, a new passenger station, box car and more track. He was in heaven! And then on Sunday we took him to the local Train Museum and he got to drive his track on their layout. He was so excited and did so well. Major kuddos to the young boys at the Train Museum who were very nice to Aidan and taught him the ropes so to speak. We all had a very nice day. We went to Bill Miller's for dinner at Aidan's request and had a fairly good and inexpensive dinner. Here's a couple of pictures:
Time for me to go and do some packing and make lunch, but before I go I want to share with you some new designs I have in the stores (links are in the sidebar)! Also, I am going to start something new here on my blog. Each week when I announce new products, I am going to give one away to one blog commenter. So that means, leave a comment on my blog saying "Hi" and which of the new releases you would love to have and on Wednesday I will pick a name out of the hat and whoever it is will get the new release of their choice. If I get lots of comments, I might even do more than 1 giveaway. Here are the previews:
First up is a cute heart shaped album designed by my awesome CT member Tanya Tong using my Flowers for Mom kit.
Next is my kit called "Grammie's Apron." Very flowery with a classic look - perfect for heritage photos and all those Mother's Day photos from this last weekend.
And speaking of fantastic CT members, Pam Bumbaca made this fabulous bracket album using Grammie's Apron. I love it and when the move is all settled and I can find my photo paper - it is going to be the first thing I make up.
Tanya's been busy this week - hehe - she also did this really wonderful brag book using Rainy Day Sunday. It is perfect for mini albums for Father's Day or just any mini album featuring the men and boys in your life!
So on that note, I am off to make lunch for my littlest nut and get some food myself! I'm starving!! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day and I look forward to reading your comments.

You Are An ENTP
You are charming, outgoing, friendly. You make a good first impression.
You possess good negotiating skills and can convince anyone of anything.
Happy to be the center of attention, you love to tell stories and show off.
You're very clever, but not disciplined enough to do well in structured environments.
In love, you see everything as a grand adventure. You enjoy taking risks for love.
And if things don't work out, you're usually not too much worse for the wear!
You would make a great entrepreneur, marketing executive, or actor.
At work, you need a lot of freedom to pursue your own path and vision.
How you see yourself: Analytical, creative, and peaceful
When other people don't get you, they see you as: Detached, wishy-washy, and superficial
Okay so give it to me straight - take the test and link me up so I can see who my friends are.

Sadly I did no digiscrappin today but I do still have a layout to share with you! This one is using Kristin Cronin-Barron's My Sunshine kit available at Sweet Shoppe Designs. It is such a fun and happy kit - I just love it. Oh and I also used one of Bree Clarkson's fabulous templates too.
Wow - that was a serious dip into the sappy and reflective side of me. I suppose it is moving that is bringing out my sappy side. I have spent nearly all of my married life in this house and brought three precious babies home from the hospital to this home. I have never in my life been as happy or as terrified as I have been in this house. But now it is time to make new memories in a new and wonderful home. And the nice thing about moving less than a mile away - when I need to I can drive by and see how things are going over here in this little corner of my heart.
On that note - I am definitely going to stop before I become even more sappy. Thanks for sticking with me and reading all this (if you got this far!). I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will have a layout to show you tomorrow!

But even with its everyday challenges and craziness, life is good! Afterall, how could it not be when your beautiful 5 year old daughter comes running into the house saying "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy....a toad pee'd on me!!" She was delighted, I was laughing and smiling - it was one of those great everyday moments.
Did everyone survive National Scrapbooking Day? Last year I went totally crazy on NDS and spent a fair amount of money. This year, I was good! I restrained myself to just a couple purchases. Now mind you, if DH was not unemployed I am sure I would have gone crazy. There were amazing sales out there, incredible designs and a lot of inspiration and fun. I didn't purchase a lot - but I did do a fair amount of scrapping - at least for me! Indulge me please while I share!
My first layout is of my sweet Eli in the bathtub. I just love that sweet beautiful face! The kit is A Boys Toys by Heather Roselli at the Sweet Shoppe and the acrylic stars are by Traci Reed. I used one of the star album Quick Pages for the layout. Yes it might constitute cheating but it turned out really cute I think!
I will spare you the whining that goes along with this next layout of Aidan who will be 7 on Saturday (hint hint - look for a sale on Saturday). He is no longer my little baby - he has grown into a boy - a big, rambuntious, active and fun 7 year old boy!! For this layout I used a template by Bree Clarkson and a new kit called Chilaxin by Melissa Bennett, Eva Kipler and Scrapkitchen Designs.
This next layout is one of my favorites for the weekend. Zoey is just so darn pretty (in my humble opinion) and her eyes are just so amazingly blue! I did this layout for the NDS Spin-A-Lift Chain game. Tons of fun! The butterfly is by Annie Manning in this layout - everything else is from Traci Reed's newest kits - JuicyPops with Amanda Rockwell and A Tisket A Tasket with Gina Miller.
Okay well that is going to have to be all for now! Soon I am going to be asleep on my keyboard! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day!
