Spotlight - Cute things you do - NishaM

OK, when I saw this LO, I knew it had to be spotlighted. Is that little girl not the cutest thing you have seen (well, besides mine of course lol). I love how the simplicity of the design doesn't distract from the picture. The circle is a GREAT touch -- what I love most is the journaling. Absolutely adorable! Going to scraplift this FOR SURE!

Want this freebie?

I had a Circle Journal challenge at Digitals, but sadly, I was terrible at keeping it up and interest went away. So, this is my last month -- and to get the kit, you have to scrap with last months and post a LO (no password on last months).. For more details, just click here

Scrapper's Choice - dawneephay for her Granddad LO

Designer's Choice - Angela for her Classy Girl LO

CT Call

For those of you who were nice enough to send your names to potentially fill my CT - I am not ignoring you -- I am just in the process of setting up a good google /yahoo group (thanks for the suggestion) for my current CT so I can keep them up to date and give them a way to get the things I don't have in my store (like my freebies, challenge kits etc). This week has been busy, so hopefully I will be able to look at you all by next week.

Stories - Jen Wilson - need to blog this

OK, I have been waiting in anticipation for this full line to come out -- a while back, Jen Wilson (who I loooooove) had a contest to submit stories into her and winning submissions would have a kit built for them. Well, I won with the story of my daughter and mother in law -- so finally ysterday, my kit came out -- #7 in the line -- called Family Circles! Also, i thought I was just getting this kit -- but turns out I am getting the WHOLE Line. My MIL is about to start treatment again, so I think I will use the line to make a nice inspirational book to keep her spirits up. Check out the line -- it is beautiful

For those of you who don't know the story of Cassidy and her Nanny -- it goes like this:

It was September, 2003 - I was really not feeling very
well. Always tired, upset stomach and just feeling run
down. I thought maybe I had over worked myself. My
mother in law was feeling the same way and we often
wondered if we had caught the same bug.

After going to lunch with a friend and telling her how
I felt - she told me I was pregnant.. I didn’t believe
her, my fiancé and I had been together for
nearly 11 years – not once did we even have false
scares. We just thought, we probably wouldn’t be
blessed with children. However, as it got into my
head, I thought I had better check. 5 POSTIVE HPT
tests later, I finally realized she was right.

My mother in law was ecstatic when we told her the
news. She has been seeing doctors too - but her news
wasn’t as great as ours - the doctors had found a
tumour on her ovary. She started getting really sick –
having been a cancer survivor before (throat and
thyroid) she just didn’t feel she had the strength to
fight it again. This gave her something to hold onto –
and fight!
In January 2004, she was hospitalized, and
they thought she wouldn’t make it much longer. She said she wanted to
be strong enough to see the baby when it was born. In February, I was
diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes - and they told me I would be
induced early. I might even have the baby for my birthday in April. My
mother in law said it would be much more special to have the baby on her birthday.
More than a month early! I laughed and said no way!

That month, my mother in law had a 16 lbs tumor removed .. and Guess what?
March 28th rolled around, my mother in law’s birthday and sure enough,
my daughter Cassidy Kathleen decided to give her a
present – and was born on her BIRTHDAY!

So we know Cassidy was sent as our Little Angel – to not only
bless our lives but to give my MIL something to show
her she had the strength to fight it again. And almost
two years later, she is still fighting.

Here is a link to a scrap I did -- my MIL keeps this on her fridge -

Here is this weeks sketch :) Hope it inspires someone :)

Freebie -- Are you a Dog Lover?

I made these as a RAK quite some time ago -- I gave them out, and then never did anything with them. It was an add-on to my BAD DAWG kit -- So, I thought, why not RAK you guys :) You get all the frames and that pretty pink background that shows them off ;)

Don't forget today is sketch day -- will be posting a sketch later on :)
