Christmas Card Picture

Well, I ran out of time to take the kids to get their photos done professionally, so I set up my camera last night, had the kids get dressed up really quick, and took about 15 shots. Only one came out great with all of the kids.

Top Ten Signs that you are Addicted to Scrapbooking

1. Your three-year-old wants to know if her coloring book is "archival quality."

2. You decide to give your child piano lessons so you'll be able to use the musical instrument stickers.

3. You're in a fender bender and your first thought is "I wonder what die-cut shape will coordinate with this event?"

4. You try to claim your album purchases as a medical expense because it's such good "therapy".

5. You redecorate your family room to coordinate with your photo album covers.

6. Your child is the only one in class who thinks "crop" means "to cut your photos".

7. Scraps from your corner rounder cuttings can be found in unusual places: school lunch bags, briefcases, the laundry, the dog's water bowl.

8. A regular sandwich is no longer must be cropped or cut with decorative edges.

9. You buy a new swimsuit because it matches the new gingham photo mounting paper.

10. You're the only one at a social gathering yelling, "Just one more photo folks, I don't have enough for a 2 page spread"

I've Been Tagged!!

I was tagged by a new blogger friend of mine Korin.

Now to think of 7 things to tell about me.

1.) My favorite holiday is Halloween. I love to deck out my house all scary but not to scary for the kids in the neighborhood. Although this year I was told by one lady my house was to scary for her little girl. I guess that means I did a good job. I hope to have an elaborate graveyard seen in my front yard one year.

2.) I am a Step Mom to my 2 older children but to them I am their Mom. (I'm a Mom of 4 beautiful children)

3.) I love to buy gifts at Christmas time for the kids. It is one of the highlights of Christmas time for me. A close second is watching them rip them open and their eyes light up with delight.

4.) I HATE to cook but I do a pretty good job at it.

5.) Before I became a Mom I was a Travel Agent. That was a fun job! I Loved traveling to places for very little $$. While I was a Travel Agent I visited, Mexico City, Tampa, Cancun and Cruised the Caribbean. I would love to get back into the Travel business again when all the kids are in school.

6.) A dream of mine is to open up a Scrapbook store with my good friend, Laura. She knows all the business in's and out's and I just love to shop for product!!

7.) I love to watch Harry Potter movies over and over again.

Now to tag some others:
