Ryan is the oldest grandchild and will be graduating from High School in June. While Derek, our youngest just celebrated his first Christmas. Seems like just yesterday that Ryan was the one celebrating his first. Sigh!!! Time goes way to fast!!

While We're Waiting...Say Cheese!!

Oooops! Lucie pulled off the road just a fraction too far. After all the rain we've had her front tire sunk in the mud. That caused the back tire to raise just enough that they couldn't get traction to get out. But I got a lot of fun photos out of the deal...LOL!! She and Amanda had time to kill while waiting for the CHP. These are some of the pics they took with their cell phone while they waited.

The January 'Sweet Nothings' specialty kit

included chipboard elements from Sassafrass Lass. In my LO above you'll see how I used them to frame the photos of my granddaughter at her Daisy Scout meeting. I also used some for the flower and leaves. I love how the chipboard adds fun and dimension to a LO. So easy!

Now hop on over to Missy and see what fun ideas she has to share with you.

Thank you for visiting us all today, we hope to see you on our Forum and have you join the fun of our month-long celebration of Love and ScrapMuse

'Spread the Love' Contest at Scrap Muse

When you think of February you think of LOVE! At ScrapMuse we are going to dedicate the month of February to spreading the love. "Spread the Love" will be a month long contest held on the ScrapMuse message board. We are going to spend the first 5 days of February getting everything ready for you. You will have the rest of the month to earn points by spreading the love about Scrapmuse, participating in weekly challenges, joining our Blog Hop, and posting on the message board. Since the contest is all about love.....there will also be random "love" points handed out! You will find a complete list of rules and ways to earn points on February 5th in the "Spread the Love" section of the message board. The grand prize for the scrapper with the most "love" at the end of the month will be a Brand New March 2010 Mega Muse and a July 2009 Mega Muse. We will also select a second place winner from a random drawing who will win a March, 2010 Mini Muse.
