It wasn't me...

Oh what a weekend we had.  Let's say I spent mine wishing my head was buried under the covers in my bed.  Instead, I was cooking, cleaning, laundering, get the idea.  And, my favorite daughter (not just because she's my ONLY daughter), whom I love to the moon and back, gave me a cold.  A really nasty cold.  One of those I-can't-breathe, my-head-is-going-to-explode, how-much-pressure-can-an-eardrum-take kind of cold.

So, in honor of the wonderful day I've had (and by wonderful, I mean I actually got dressed and stayed awake the entire day), we're going to play a little Not Me Monday.

It was absolutely not me that just spent $30.00 this evening on ice cream.  Thirty dollars.  On ice cream.  In my defense (or rather, the defense of that OTHER person that spent big bucks on ice cream), it's been a crummy day.  A crummy week, really.  The Schwan's man pulled into my driveway with his lovely yellow truck and I totally caved when he said he'd stocked up on Rocky Road.  Typically, I don't like Rocky Road ice cream one bit, but there is just something about Schwans Rocky Road.  As a matter of fact, I'm eating some right this very second.  Uh...I mean that person that's not me is eating some.  You know.  Because this is Not Me Monday.  

In other news, can you believe March is already half over??  Where has this month gone?  Well, this year, really.  When I was pregnant (seems like ages ago) I signed up to get these neat emails that tell you how the baby is developing.  I was so excited to get each one.  As it turns out, the emails continue after you deliver.  It isn't quite the same to get an email that says "Your Baby is 15 Months Old", which is what today's message said.  *sniffle*  My baby is what??  

Because today is the 15th, My Life and Scrap has just released their newest collaborative kit: March Pixel Edition.

Isn't it great?  I just love the Easter-y colors.  Some of those greens would work out perfect for St. Patty's Day layouts too, don't you think?

Here's a cute little Quick Page from the incredible talent at Team MLAS.  You know you've got those leftover photos from last fall/halloween that haven't been scrapped yet.  This is just what you need!  Download it for free and toss your photo in there.  Done!  Voila!  

Happy Monday!

Amazing Race...

Are any of you participating in the Amazing Digi-Scrapping Race?  This was the first year I'd even heard of it, so when a friend asked me to partner up with her, I was game.  It has been so much fun!  Though, I have to be honest, some of the layouts really do require some brainstorming before I can start the creating process.  Here's a peek at what I've done so far:




5.6 - No Entry - my partner had to do this one alone






What do you think? While it is too late to sign up for the ADSR this year, if you're in the mood for some challenges, head over to My Life and Scrap.  There's nothing like a good challenge to get your creative juices flowing.

Sweet Baby

Thanks to Cara, of Sweet Tomato Designs, I'm finally getting around to scrapping some of the photos from my daughter's birth.  I know, it's only been...15 months.  But who's counting?  :)

Here's my first layout, isn't she sweet?  I used The Princess, which I am seriously loving.  There are a couple baby-specific elements, but overall the kit is extremely versatile.  I can see myself using it for a lot of spring-y pages, not just baby stuff.

Here is a preview of the kit:


And, because you can't have a Princess without a Prince, take a look at this:
