C is for Camden

I altered a foam letter for miss Camden. I plan on doing one for Cade, too. I think it's so much easier to make things look girly, though.

Today I'm working on a card and gift bag for a friend of mine who's going through chemo. She's 32 and has stage 2 Hodgekin's Lymphoma. We're all very optimistic that she'll be just fine. I'm no longer a Mary Kay consultant and I have lots of leftover products so I thought I'd make her a goodie bag with pampering stuff. So far it's going to have Lotus and Bamboo loofah body cleanser and nourishing body lotion and a Satin Lips set (mask and balm). I'm not sure what else I'll throw in there.

My husband is a lucky man. Seriously. He's out of town on business and stopped into a casino last night. I agreed to him spending $20. (I'm not a gambler--at all--and think it's just ridiculous to lose money.) Anyway, he was there for about 5 hours (on $20!!!) and walked away with $600!!!!!!! Last time he went to a casino he went in with $40 and came out with over $2000. Shoot, maybe I shouldn't have such a problem with him gambling! lol Anyway, he plans on buying a GPS for traveling (I'm wondering if that would be reimbursed under business expenses?) and I plan on going to the scrapbook store! :)

Have a good weekend!

The crafting bug is back...yay! I finished a layout last night and I'm working on another one this morning. I'm also going to alter a letter "C" for the baby today. We've decided to name her Camden Faith and I am completely in love with the name! So we'll have Cade and it! :)

Anyway, here is a layout I finished recently. Horrible picture but I really do like the finished product. I so appreciate my husband. He really works hard to provide for us. And his efforts are being blessed--praise God!

Here are a couple of mini cards that I did...these were so simple and so fun! I can definitely see myself doing more of these. They're perfect little cards to put on the top of gifts.

The baby has hiccups right now and it drives me crazy! She's getting so big. Actually, it's me that's getting so big! lol Here's a picture from 32 weeks.

Time to finish scrapping and take Cade to swimming lessons. He's doing so very well, by the way. I'm seriously impressed with how much progress he's made and his coach is fantastic! Have a blessed Wednesday!
