The last day of 2007

Wow I can't beleive how time has flown by us.. 2007 is now going and 2008 will be here...
I am hoping for lots of new things in 2008
Yes the forever losing weight battle.
I want to get my photo's scrapped and in albums not just in a box when they are done then later decide I need to change it..
I want to use the supplies I have I bought them for a reason now I need to get back to what was so cute about them and use them.
Pay off some bills
Spend less set some budget goals
Eating out to be a treat... Healthier eating habbits will start with this.
Have at least one date nite a week with hubby
Walk more when it warms up at nite
Organize my scrappy space
Go thru the house and rid what we don't use donate it.
Take at least two Saturday off work a month...
Scrap with Debbie hopefully once a month (Saturday) and Scrap here at the house (Saturday and sneak in when i can)
Help Hubby more at work not sure how but I will think of something he works so so hard.
I have so much but I guess these are the main focus..

Have a wonder last day of 2007 becareful... Hubby will be cooking dinner for us tonite.. He will make ribs for DD and for him and I lobster tails.. DD does not like lobster. He will even do the clean up can't ask for more than that..

I am getting ready to do some heavy Scrapping in January 2008.. Will be involved in a Scrap athon with many challenges... over at SecretScrapper as of January 31..2008 I will no longer be on the Design Team. They are looking for 3 DT members and a cordinator.. So if anyone thinking about DT.. apply...

Xmas Cards

Ok..Here is my shot at April's challenge I was so out of it and out of sorts today I feel much better after a good nites sleep.. she has the three cards on her blog and you use the same patterned with different materials for each.. so now I have three more cards to send out ..It didn't take that log it was just getting the mojo to get them done..between my migraine and other things neglected int he house and such.. I might just make the rest with the scraps I have left now of the paper and only buy one box.. I usually sent about 40 cards to 50 this year is 60..
and I do not have time to make them with other projects.. so i am buying them... I will make one for my aunt who tells me she doesn't accept anything from me unless it's hand made LOL>
Happy Monday Everyone...

HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL ....(not anymore)

Here is my baby ... I can hardly beleive the time how fast it has gone.. How much joy this little soul can bring to one's life. I love being her mother.. It's not always easy being a mom.. but there is no other greater feeling in the world than to love someone this much.
Then they grow a little bigger... and
Then they become a little more independent.. & cute as a button
The teen years start to hit and your wishing you can go back to holding them as a baby time is passing to quickly..
Then H igh School starts... see how the time passed so quickly...
Then the High School graduation comes.... faster than the speed of light. Amanda is to the left and her best friend Chelsea is to the right. Her single grad photo is in Az.. still.. I could not be prouder of this girl.
& here she is 21 years later... All grown up.. I am so very proud of her .. She is growing up to be all that she can be. It's so hard to beleive how the time flies and no matter how old they are you always love them more than anything in life... She learned a lot of lessons along the way..She is working so hard in school I know she will accompolish.... what it is she is going after.
I love you Amanda... & looking forward to all that bring to me....
This last photo was taken by Jessica Amanda doesn't take photo to often now that she's all grown but says she would like Jessica take them again.. I had her do these for her 21st.
