Well I am certainly not keeping up with my blog, that is evident by the last post being in April and today being in September.  I could use the excuse that I have been quite busy. Or I could be truthful and even though I have been quite busy I have also totally forgotten my blog.  I will try to do better in the future.  I have been doing some scrapping, not a lot but some.

Since the last time I posted both Alan and I have gotten new walkers so now we can go for nice long walks were as before we could barely make it to the corner and back.

I also have a new Dietician who has been working with me, she is really good and finally I am eating mostly healthy foods and have my diabeties under control. I have to drive an hour to get to her but it is well worth it.  She calls me every second week to check in and I go to see her once every two months... yeah I did tell you she is really good and works with me and around some of the problems I have.

Okay so let's see what I have created since April LOL

These ones were created in May.





These ones were done in June.




I was much more prolific in August LOL










So far September is coming along okay but I really do need to come up with more ideas for male pages... they do look so very boring.




Well that is about it for me so far this month but I am looking forward to the rest of the month, unlike the past months that were full of appointments for this and that, this month only has one more appointment and the rest of the days are free.  Hoping to use the rest of the month for scrapping and maybe remembering to use my blog.  LOL

Still on Track

Hello again my friends.
I am so enjoying being back.  To get up in the morning being the real Jackie, the one who I was for many years instead of being someone I never had been before and really hated being.

I give my the Lord Jesus Christ, my personal Saviour  all the glory, honour and praise for what He has done for me. Without Him to keep me going I would have never made it through the past year.

I have been creating at least one project per day, not quite what I would have been doing before but I am happy with that.  I know it is coming and beside, I don't want to push myself too hard and maybe end up pushing myself too hard.

These were all challenges from Creative Inspiration.

Not in any particular order here they are.
This one was for a card sketch:


I did two of this layout because both of the children were in the photo so I needed one for each of their scrapbooks. This one is for Brady's.



This one is for Leah.

This is another card challenge.



And of course I had to have one of my precious Jack. Jack loves his toys, a stuffed teddy and a stuffed kitty. It also isn't advisable to touch his blanky if he is close.


Well that is it for me today.  Please leave a comment so I know you have been here.

You and Me Together

Things are definitely looking up, I completed another layout in just a couple of hours.I used a sketch from the Robin's Nest to do this one.  Unfortunately I don't have any product from them so the layout won't be entered in their contest.

Here is the sketch by Bev Code:

Here is my layout.

Happy Father's Day

Today is a day when we honour all the Father's in our lives.  I lost my father many years ago but I still miss him today.  He was very precious to me. He was a carpenter by trade and I remember watching him build many things. So when I had to create something for the reveal for Just Imagine/Kreaxions, what a better way to remember my Dad, then to create a tool box, and what Dad wouldn't be delighted to receive this delightful little tool box for Father's day?
 To create this little box I used the Prima's Craftsman paper collection. I used Kreaxion's punch # 905 to create the border for the perfect finishing touch and I used the circle cutter to cut the tag. I used my Cameo and cutting files from Silhoutte to cut the tools.

A quiet Moment!

The flowers are Prima, the chipboard butterfly is unknown, the pearls are from the dollar store and the ribbon is unknown. The vintage leaf pins are Maya Road.

A Lovely Thank You Card!!

Sometimes we forget just how easy it is to put together a simple card that really looks pretty.  To create this lovely card I used papers from MME's Now and Then. I used Kreaxion's punch # 301 to make the border. The 3D sticker was created by fussy cutting a couple of medallions from the paper and pop dotting them and adding a little bow.
