Part time single parent....

So I think everyone knows that my husband is in the United States Marine Corps.... He is currently over seas so that means that I am a single parent while he is gone.... I dont know how single parents do it! I mean Im only doing it for 8 months.... My mother was a single parent for many years to my brother and I and she is a very strong woman! Anyways I havent been away from my daughter since july and that was for one night so my mother in-law said she wanted to keep Emily last weekend, so my mom and I had a girls day! She took me shopping and out for lunch and drinks.... :)  I had a great time! I missed Emily but it was really nice to get a break!


So I made a Halloween mini album in one day! Usually it takes me like a month! haha... Im really slow when it comes to making them! But also I usually already have the pictures to put in it, but this time I just made the album and when I get the pictures I can just cut them down and put them in! That was my project for today so once they release it I will post lots of pictures :)   Also my daughter had ambilical hernia surgery on Monday and she is healing very nicely and is doing great! She is tough and strong like her mommy and daddy thats for sure! here are some pictures of her on the seditive they gave her.... It made her so funny :)

Last Thursday's project for

So on this project I usedMy Minds Eye lost and found Union Square paper. I sprayed the paper with Lindy's Stamp Gang glitz spritz in gold, so it has lots of shimmer to it! I also used Ranger black dauber around the paper to disstress it. I used I am roses flowers and I painted them red and also used the glitz spritz on them. then I used some prima flower sprays and recolections black bling. And some red ribbon and black trim I had in my stash.... I hope you all like this! I put it in a shadow box and it looks awesome! This project was so fun to make!
