Getting Ready For Baby X


My family and I went to the city for yet another doctor's appointment and while we were there we picked up a few things for Baby X. Most importantly an outfit to bring the baby home, which we neglected to think about when I had Felicity. It's hard to resist all those cute baby outfits, and the many toys and paraphenalia at The Bay and my favorite Maternity/Baby shop, but since we decided to wait to find out what we were having we could only pick up a few basics.
I love the diaper bag we picked up. It's water proof and is sprayed with something that helps prevent the escape of odours (very important) and mould. Plus it's not to girly, so Kieth can carry it without feeling like he's packing my purse. The Baby outfit had to be generic, and we found this great little set of outfits at The Bay with zoo animals all over it in oranges, creamy beige, and blue. And of course since Close To My Heart has a stamp set in there new catalog that coordinates perfectly, I'll have to get that for my Bringing home Baby pics.
I've managed to complete my mother-in-law's Mother's Day card early enough to mail out on time for once. I used my new Cricut cartridge - A Walk In My Garden to create the flowers on the front and inside. I also used my new glue pad to stamp the butterfly image and covered it with glitter. I was quite happy with how well the adhesive worked.

Disney On Ice

Felicity's Figure Skating Club presented Disney On Ice last weekend and as usual it was a great show. I've seen so much improvement in many of the skaters this year, especially my daughter. Here are some of the pictures I captured. The lighting was poor so they are not all that great, but the video footage turned out pretty good.


Felicity's Canskate A group performed a Hawaiian dance from the animated film Lilo & Stitch.

Toilet Paper Roll Album



I saw the idea for this Toilet Paper Roll Album on UTube and couldn't resist creating one of my own. There are tags inside each of the flattened toilet paper rolls where I will add more photos or journaling.
I hope the Spring Theme will inspire the snow to melt so my grass and flowers will appear.




I used the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel to make the green on the lady bug shine, and added touches of glitter throughout the album.


Now all we need is Spring to appear so that I can add photos.

Crazy Hair Day


It was Crazy Hair Day at school, and so this was what we came up with. It could be crazy hair day every morning at my house! Felicity and I had fun coming up with this style.
