You've Come A Long Way Baby

I found this calendar that had all these great "Bombshell" beauties.  I said to my self, these pictures and the old trophy plaques, that my hubby said "what are you going to do with these", (at the time, I had no clue, but you know how it is, throw something away and there it is a project gone to the garbage) are a match.

I've always wanted to try a form of altered art.  This is what I came up with.  One down and eleven to go. I need to find some more plaques though.

I would like to thank Roni from Inkstains for her help

Lets All Cheer

This is our girly girl, aka diva in the family. Adriana, who is 4 some of the times and double that some of other days. She does not wear pants only dresses. She would rather have her nails done that go to the movies. This past weekend she was in a cheerleading competition and her squad took first place.

We are very fortunate to have her. She is the second daughter for my daughter, Lisa and her husband Paul. Jayden is their first. After having Jayden my daughter and son-in-law were having a very hard trying to get pregnant. After months of trying everything conceivable, no pun intended, they decided to try international adoption from Guatamala. One year to the day they got a call saying they had a baby girl for them. I was very honored to be able to go with them to bring home my newest grandaughter.

For the last four years we have been truely blessed.

Grammie and Papa love you sweetie.

My First Attempt At Stitching

Better late than never.
I saw these wonderful seasons of the sheep on Char's blog The Pickled Pepper Patch, and even though I didn't know the first thing about stitching them, I kindly asked Jenny from Jenny of Elefantz if she could help me on some basic stitches.

If anyone is looking for wonderful help, tutorials or just a simple question these remarkable ladies fill the bill.

Thanks again Char and Jenny

As Always,
Take Care

My Sweet Sweet Jayden

This past Saturday, my very precious first grandaughter turned 9. She is in third grade and already a very talented artist. She has a sister, Adriana who is 4, that was adopted from Guatamala and a set of 2-1/2 years old identical twin brothers.

Happy birthday baby, I love you.

As you can tell, I am a very proud grammie.

As always, take care
