I am so disappointed since my laptop is not even 1 year and 4 months old. I asked him the cause and he said it really could be anything like a virus, spyware etc.... AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I am really trying to not stress, but as you can imagine...everything is on that computer...my picts, my digi stuff, all my e-mail addresses, my life is on that computer!!
Needless to say I have no picture to post (since they are all on my other computer). So if you think of me, say a little prayer that this can be fixed...at least for now!!

I stamped the journaling block on each page, so I can write down funny things that Riley and Brody say and do!!

I created this simple LO below using Daisy D's stickers and patterned paper and 7 gypsies rub ons!
I created this LO below for a challenge I have going at iSCRAP this month...it was to use a heart playing card on a LO!
Below is a digital LO created from kit A New Day found at Dragonflaire Studios. (I used my wacom tablet to draw the flowers on the background paper!)

My friend, Julie Woik wrote the most amazing childrens book called "The Life and Times of Lilly the Lash". An eyelash turned fairy who teaches children life lessons, good values and morals. The story is amazing and the illustrations in the book are like none I have ever seen...and we are huge book fans around our house. To learn more, please visit Julie's website Lilly the Lash to find out more about Julie, Lilly, what she offers (like lesson plans for all ages of children), meet the characters and most importantly how to order this amazing book!! I can guarantee you will want one. Another really cool thing is that a portion of proceeds from each book (there is going to be a series of about 20 books) goes to a different charity, this book goes to breast cancer research!

Sean and I took the boys to the park and man, did we all have fun. It is not very often I can actually take a picture with both hands. Riley was all over the place...hanging from the jungle gym, walking the balance beam, jumping off everything, sliding upside down on the slides, playing chase with daddy, and swinging on the swings.

...one the Gulf Coast Florida Railroad train. It's "National Steam Month" and in honor of that the Manatee line hosts a "Train Robbery" on their local rides each weekend for the month of February. The boys had so much fun seeing the deputies and the robbers re-enact a train robbery...too much fun!!! If you are interested check the link here.

1. any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, as love or hate.
When I think about the word passion or passionate, many things come to mind like Sean, my family, being a good wife and mother, scrapbooking...so you may be wondering why I posted a picture of my running shoes. Well, mainly because I wanted to challenge myself to write about something I am passionate about that I may not talk about or scrapbook as much...but I would want to remember when I look back at this ten years from now!
Less than a week away from my first marathon, my thoughts turn to running. After watching Spirit of the Marathon the other night at the movies, it got me so excited and pumped up. I have never experienced anything quite like a runners high...like I get usually around mile 7 and then again around mile 14 to 15...it is truly exhilerating.
The passion I feel for this competitive sport is like non I have ever known before (even with playing volleyball, softball, basketball and golf). Like most sports you are on a team, you support each other, you help each other, but with running you are all on your own. I love that and my competitive spirit does too. I have NEVER felt such mixed emotions as I did 2 weeks ago walking to my car after running 26 miles. Feelings of accomplishment, tears of happiness (that my body physically could do that for 5 hours), a smile that just wouldn't quit, an inner strength that I had never felt before...all I can say is Wow.
So when I think of passion, yes running is my passion!
