Tick, Tock Goes the Clock

The clock is winding down. 2007 will be another year in the history of my life. It's been a good year. It's been a sad year, too. Our DS moved to Oregon so our visits are gone. I lost my mom this year, and I lost my precious little furry friend, Purrna. On the bright side, DH and I are both healthy and happy. We love our new home and our neighborhood. It's been a wonderful change from the hustle and fast pace of Las Vegas.

I want to thank each of you for visiting my blog. I hope your Christmas was a wonderful one. I especially want to wish you a very SCRAPPY New Year! May you have health and happiness in your life. Thank you, each of you, for being my cyberfriend. It's been a wonderful experience!

I've been working on some new layouts. I thought I'd share them with you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I love to share!

The first LO is of my Darling Husband when he was so tiny! That Santa looks so real and the expression on my DH's face is just heart warming. He is so enamored. Bless his heart!

I Believed in the Magic


The next LO is based on a photo of me as a four year old. Again, the Santa looks so real! They don't make them like they used to, huh?

A Little Birdie told Santa


Zion National Park is so beautiful in the winter when the snow is on the peaks. This photo was taken in mid December just after a snowfall. I wanted to keep the colors of the LO within the range of those found in the photo.

December's Beauty


The final photo is a switch from the winter photos to one of summer. This was DS's very first swimming lesson. He loved that lesson. That was the ONLY lesson he loved. After this one, he cried every time he saw the instructor come to the house! He didn't want his face in the water. I don't think he puts his face in the water now when he swims. We felt it was important that DS learned how to get to the edge of the pool and then climb out in the event he fell in. This gave us some sense of security.

First Swim Lesson


Again, I hope each of you have a scrappy New Year!
