Tuesday Fiona Whitt

Last night Tuesday went home to be with God. That sweet little girl is no longer in pain, but I can't imagine the pain her family is in. Please pray for them. She leaves behind her mom, dad, two brothers and a twin sister.

What is LEVO you ask? A word in a foreign language, perhaps. A acronym, maybe. A city overseas, could be. But this is what it really is............

Cute, huh! When I went to take a pic for the blog I notice how I hung it, LOL! Here is how it should look:

Here is a closeup of one of the pennants:

I am so happy at how this project turned out! I made it using the cricut design studio and the george and plantin cartridges for cricut. Let me know what you think. I think I may make one for the guest bath and hang over the mirror! **as always click on the pic for a close up.

Baby Shower Time!

Tot School

Tot School

So we are finally feeling better and going back to Tot School! Carisa over at 1+1+1=1 has given me some great ideas to get started. Be sure to click on the above link and see what others are doing! This week for our tot school, Shelby Lynn will be learning about ladybugs, the number 1, and the letter 'L', along with some arts and crafts. I will post pics of our activities on Friday, but wanted to put the Tot School link up, because others have already posted pics of what they did last week!

As I mentioned before it was a scrapbook baby shower. Here is a pic of some of the scrapbook embellishments I made to use as decorations:

Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to get the pics of all of the girls layouts. They did an awesome job!

First posts of many

So I am waayyyy behind on things I wanted to post, so I may have to start doing two a days! With hubby getting ready to leave I have been in such a funk! But last night before I went to bed I decided to get out of it! It was kinda of like therapy for me to plan what sort of surprises I am going to send in his care packages! Soooo, back on track now!

When I went home at Thanksgiving I threw my best friend in the whole world (my soul mate friend we call each other) a baby shower. I spent months pouring over the cricut message board getting wonderful ideas. The ladies on that site are soooooo very talented. So I want to say a big thank you to all of you who posted ideas that I scraplifted from. There are way to many to name, so I am just going to link to the cricut message board HERE.
Here are some pics of decorations:

Welcome to the shower!

Diaper cake (No cricut used here).

Diaper Wreath

Name photo book

Memory paint can

Baby Clothes line

Baby Sock Rose Bouquet
Well this is part one of the shower decorations. I will post the rest tomorrow. Melanie is the one who got me into scrapbooking, so of course I had to throw her a scrapbooking baby shower. After we opened the packages, each person made Melanie a scrapbook page to go in her baby book. Tomorrow I will post those pics and the scrapbook embellishment that I used as decorations as well as the party favors! Thanks for Looking and as always I love me some comment love!!!

7lbs 2oz!

Zoe Bella arrived safe and sound Tuesday night at 5:02 pm. She weighed 7lbs 2oz (so Jay was closer to the weight) and she was 19.5 inches ( I was closer on that one!). It is so hard not being in TN so I can see her and love on her!!!! Hopefully soon though. Quick post today, I have to clean the house.

Corduroy and Lace

This will be my first post showcasing the amazing kits that Lindsay over at SPINKYDINK has created. Be sure to pop over to her blog and meet the rest of the design team. These two layouts were created using her Corduroy and Lace kit which is soooo versatile. I love it because I can use it for many different events. You can get this amazing kit HERE

These pics are of my best buddy! And it is so great that I am posting these today because she is in the hospital right now having her little girl!!! Jay and I have made predictions as to the size. I am saying 7lbs 11oz and 20inches and Jay says 7lbs 8oz and 21 inches. I can't wait, the anticipation is killing me, but I am know it way worse for the proud momma and papa!!! Good luck Mel, you can do it!! (She is going to try to go natural, but they started her on pitocin, which I as know is one mean drug!)

Tot School

Yea! I found another site that comes up with the weekly theme and activites for teaching your tot! I am just not feeling really creative right now with my hubby getting ready to leave; so it is nice to have someone else do that side of it! The theme for the week of Jan 11-17 is Zoo Animals! Go to for ideas and to sign up for the weekly newletter and link to their blog! I am loving this theme because I have a cricut cartridge called Zooballoo that I have been wanting to use to make Lil Bit a ABC book with. So hopefully I can post that by the end of the week along with the activities we do!
So my hubby is definitely leaving and I think is trying to give me a heart attack. Friday night he went to play flag football and came home with four stitches and a big black/purple eye! I thought flag football was supposed to be less injury prone that full tackle, but apparently not because another one of his buddies tore his ACL!! I am hoping I can convince my hubby to let take a pic, I really think this one needs to be scrapbooked about!

Posts where are u?

Where oh where I have my posts been? Well, we have been sick! Lil Bit had RSV and ear infections in both ears and Jay and I both had the crud, but thankfully we are better! So needless to say we didn't do tot school this week, also when I went to the site that used to host tot school, it appears she no longer is. So I guess I will have be creative and think of themes all by self, though I will be disappointed not to see what others did with the same theme!
Well, I got some bummer of news last night. My hubby was supposed to be going out of town for four months this summer, but his work called last night and said he will probably be leaving in 3 weeks! I am so not ready for him to be gone, especially during the winter; at least during the summer it is warm and we are super busy. I absolutely hate winter and cold weather and now I won't have my hubby to keep me warm!
Until next time....
