Big savings on eBay....

If anyone wants to hop on over to eBay I have some great prices on my auctions at this time and if your purchasing multiple items I always give a combined shipping rate so these are awesome prices. You can check out my eBay store here: I also hope to get these sale prices up on my website in the next day or so, this will be a great time to stock up on all your scrapbooking supplies. You can find my website here:Scrappers Heaven

I did manage to get another scrap page done today. This one is of my grandson again trying at his strength on one of those "Test Your Muscles & Ring the Bell" things at the Canada Celebrations on the mainland. Apparently he rang the bell every time so he was quite pleased with himself, lol. Hope everyone has been having a great week so far, one more work day and then the weekend! TFL

Sunshine & smiles

Another gorgeous day today. I love the summer and all of the layouts you can do with summer photo's. This picture that my son took of my grandson is just so perfect for a summer layout. Scott always has a big smile on his face, I just love that about him. TFL!

Hot, hot, hot

Well it looks like summer finally arrived with a vengeance. It's been super nice for the past few weeks and this week the weather is getting hotter with no end in site at least for a week. I'm not going to complain though after all the crappy we had in May and June. My poor veggie garden is probably not going to recover. Very sad, I won't get my fresh tomatoes from my garden. :-(

We had a visitor on Saturday. A young 2 point buck decided to wander in for his lunch and spent some time munching on all the leaves. I managed to get about 10 feet away but he was half hidden by the trees. When I did manage to get in front of him he decided it was time to leave, so that picture didn't quite come out that clear. I decided that I'd scrapbook them for another entry into the color challenge at My Creative Scrapbook. Layout is below.

I also got a nice surprise in the mail today. Instead of getting just bills I got my prize goodies from Pam at My Creative Scrapbook for my Layout of the Month for June and also for the color challenge that she so nicely gave everyone who entered a prize - thanks so much Pam!

New products

Have you seen all of the beautiful new products that the companies are releasing for the summer CHA, such as Prima, Bo Bunny, Crate Paper, just to name a few. I think that Prima has out done themselves with all of their gorgeous new flowers they have this time. I soooo need to win the lottery so I could just go and buy one of everything! Any rich person want to adopt me? LOL

We had a color and sketch challenge at My Creative Scrapbook for July and this was my entry for it. My daughter had taken my grandchildren with her to the off leash beach that she takes her dogs to for a swim and play time with the other dogs. They love spending time with their favorite Auntie. Mikayla just looked so young and carefree in these photos. It would be great to be that age again!

Well I hope everyone is off to a beautiful sunny work week, TFL!

I'm so excited...I was checking out all the posts at "My Creative Scrapbook" and found out that my layout of my grandson bouncing on the trampoline won the June Sketch Challenge! You can see my layout in my June 17th post. All of the ladies in this group are so talented, so for my layout to be picked is a great honor for me. On top of that I get to look forward to getting a prize for this in my mail...Whohoo, something other than bills! LOL

I hope everyone is having a great day enjoying the sunshine!

New scrap pages

This first page was a picture that my sister took when we were having a BBQ with my sister and husband and my son and grandchildren. I still can't get over that my son is 30 now and has two little ones himself. I'm so proud of my son and all that he has accomplished in his life and for giving me two of the cutest grandchildren ever (I'm not biased at all, lol).

This next page is one I did with a couple of pictures my DH took of some Bison at a farm about 25 klm's from us. You can see how they are shedding their big winter coats and the baby is so cute.


Being having a big relapse with my MS since the attack in June. I was good for about a week after that and then the following week I started having smaller attacks during the day and then on July 2nd I started to feel all light headed, as if I had one to many drinks or something and then I couldn't think of words I was trying to say and was having a difficult time talking. I ended up spending about 4 hours in emergency as they though I was having a stroke. All the test came back fine and by the time they got the reslts to me I was talking all normal again, and just felt really weak so they decided I should see my Neurologist at the MS Clinic. On Saturday July 3rd it happened again in the late afternoon and I was talking all stupid again and couldn't talk well, everyone thought I had been drinking that one lasted quite long into the evening so I ended up flying out on Monday, July 5th to Vancouver. Turns out after seeing my Neurologist that my MS was attacking my brain stem which is why I looked and acted like I was having a stroke. Now it is just a wait and see thing and hopefully it will clear up on it's own. Otherwise they will have to give me a round of intravenous steroids to help clear up all the inflammation in my spinal cord that attacks everything.

I seem to be not doing to bad the last couple of days, at least my head has felt clearer which is good as that part was really hard to deal with. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I have managed to do a couple of scrap pages through out all of this so I hope to get those posted but I seem to be having a problem with my blog and doing new posts which I hope gets fixed soon. Take care all!
