My 300th Post

WOW, I can't believe that this the 300th post in 2 years! I must be awfully chatty, LOL!
Well, for my 300th post, I have a LO to share. I've wanted to scrap this subject for the longest time (I swear my mental scrap to do list is a mile long). I created this for the Jenni Bowlin Studio contest over at scrapfreak.com. For the contest, I had to use at least 3 JB products....well that was easy considering how much I LOVE her stuff!

I used some new Prima and Graphic 45 papers here too along with some embellishments that have been in my stash FOREVER! I don't know what is is about using stuff that gives me such a feeling of accomplishment, of maybe that's just me subliminally giving myself permission to buy new stuff! HA!

I created this LO about my little old house.

journaling: When we first moved into this house, I was pregnant with Donovan. This little 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cape cod seemed perfect for our growing family. Little did I know how quickly we would outgrow it; a baby in the house takes up a lot of space. I soon began to dislike this house and often wish for a bigger one, one with more character, more storage space. Recently, I realized that I spend more time wishing for a better home than appreciating the one that I have. Troy and I became parents in this house. I nursed my babies in this house, celebrated holidays and birthdays and continue to watch our children grow up in this little house. I've laughed, cried, cursed, and praised all in this very house. There are a lot of people in this world who are homeless; although I have my issues with my home, I'm happy to have it. Hopefully adding square footage with the renovation of our basement will help me love this old house a little more! 2/28/09

I wrote my address on the JB ticket after I took the photo. Oooh, I just love these new thickers; I love script and I can see that I'm going to have to pick up a few more!

I used a keyhole brad as a flower center- I don't know where this is from, but I've had it forever!
Well, that's it for now...thanks for stopping by!
