Pumpkin Cheesecake

I made a pumpkin cheesecake about a month ago and it was such a hit that I have been asked to make 2 of them for
Thanksgiving! I am really flattered...anyway, I made a cute recipe card for the pumpkin cheesecake recipe. If you want a copy
of this recipe, just go to Racheal Ray dot com and search in the recipes section. Thanks to the Racheal Ray Magazine for
this AMAZING recipe!

Meadows Challenge

You have all probably figured out by now that I love these digital scrapbooking challenges. This is my third one and I LOVE it!!! They push me to get pages done and to be creative. Here is my latest creation. The paper is from Gina Marie Huff's Painting a Dream, the frames are from Heidi Williams Warming the Heart, the stars and flower are from Gina Marie Huffs Super Stars kit ( I enlarged them and filled in the flower). The ribbon is from Gina's Believing in You kit, and the "dream" is from Gina's Playing With Wire word art kit. Oh, yeah, and the date stamp is from Teriann Hank's It's a Date.

The Cello

So, I have been planning on my Drew playing the cello since before he was born and like any good Suzuki mom, I have had the cello music playing since before he was one....more consistently in the last six-eight months or so. Anywho, I have been doing
this in anticipation of him starting cello lessons at age 3 or 3 1/2. That is how young a person can be to start the violin. Well, not with the cello! I have to wait until he is 5! The good news is, is that he already is on a waiting list for Brittany Gardner (she is in the picture standing next to a young girl) he will start in June of '09. That seems sooooooooooooo far away, I hope I can keep his interest alive. I kept telling him we were going to get him his own "baby violin cello." But, we can't even do anything with it. So, I have been scowering the internet and found some videos and pictures to show him.....I found a video on you tube. Also, I found a picture of a cello teacher and her students to show him just how little these cute kids are and that they CAN do it!!!

Here is my latest digital scrapbooking creation. I made it for the challenge over at the meadows. For these two pages I used papers, frames, the staples, and the little denim heart from Heidi William's Warming the Heart Kit. The wire tag is the Dream it tag from WW. The Alpha is from Gina Marie Huff's Doodling days (I darkened it). The Stiching is from Amelie Scraps Pink Paradise, the paper tears are by Traci Simms, and the font is "little trouble girl."

Here is a picture of our family that my dad took last week! He is an INCREDIBLE photographer!!!!!!

More Pages and a quick note

Before I forget, I do need to point out that the October page from an earlier post was not made by me. The credit goes to Shabby Princess. It is their October Desktop. All I did was add some pictures of my kids! There is another reason why I love digital scrapping....its EASY!! Ok, my other pages. The Twinkle Toes page is from Peppermint Creative's Twinkle Toes kit, with Traci Simms paper tears, and the Birthday Boy page is from Shabby Princess' Festival kit, the triple cardboard frame from scrapladies, and the date stamp is Teriann Hanks "Its a Date."

Digital Scrapbook

I know most of you that will be looking at this site already know that my newest obsession is of Digital Scrapbooking. I LOVE IT!!!!! It is (for me) so much faster and cost effective than paper scrapping. Rather than bore you with all of the reasons of my love for digi scrapbooking, I thought I'd just post some of my Pages. goes. These two pages were created for a challenge for the Meadows at Weeds and Wildflowers (one of my favorite scrapbooking sites). The first page is Called Tiny Toes, and I used papers and star overlay from Gina Marie Huff's Painting a Dream , the star stamp "A Little Pizzazz" by Sandy Krieger from Two Peas, the ribbon, frame and star are from Gina Marie Huff's Believing in You, the font is fontmoochers, and the alpha is from Gina Marie Huff's Doodling Days #1. The Second Page is Called Cameron and I used papers from Gina Marie Huff's Painting a Dream and Swirling Fall Leaves by Heidi Williams/Saxon Holt. The stamp frames are Naked Stamp Sheets No.2 by Meredith Fenwick, the ribbon is from ksharonkdesigns simples sets #24, the alpha is "another love affair" by retrodiva (Tracy Collins), the staples are from Brittish Designs, the Doodle by Deise Liemert, and the stars are from Heidi Williams Seeing Stars.
