I'm a Flower Girl!!

Yeah, at my age of 33 (turning 34 oh no!) I became a flower girl for the first time. I have never ever been a flower girl during my youth, but now Prima gave me the honor of the title! I still can't believe it. Being on the Prima Design Team is a dream come true for me. I am so honored to be designing with such a talented group of artists. I am just so thankful for all the blessings that have come my way as an artist. Here is the page that I think they liked best among my submissions...


I also designed this layout for Scrapbukan feauturing Basic Grey Papers (Periphery)

When your world finally gets a dose of sunshine...

... thanks to all of your prayers, my world is brighter again. Nicole is so much better. Her eyes are almost fully healed and she is back to her old self. My throat and eyes are ok now also and I have resumed scrapping (last minute effort to beat my deadlines). Only now, my husband has the eye infection. I know... him too. But he is strong so I'm sure it will clear up in a few days.

Anyway, just to get back on track again, I'm sharing with you a few items I made for the badgirls January kit...

When the holidays pass you by....

Christmas and New Year just passed us by. That's because my three year old daughter, my only child, got seriously sick for the first time. She had a major case of eye infection which caused the bacteria in her body to rise to scary levels. She had very high temperature and was already chilling. She could not eat and she would vomit her milk. When we took her to the hospital, she was immediately admitted and she had to go through several examinations. She was pricked, injected, examined, and had to have a tube inserted in her hand (dextrose) for support in medication and nutrition. It was such a scary scary time for me. We were just released before new year's eve but she is still being monitored. Being the mom that I am, I cried endless tears and unconsciouly wiped my eyes with the same hands that comforted my little daughter. And so now, I have the eye infection! But I still am thankful that Nicole is better now.

I appologize for not being able to answer emails, not being able to participate in the forums, and for just being out of touch. I will catch up with you guys once Nicole is better.

Hope everyone had a happy new year.
