Our new kitten Buttons is so cute she likes to sleep on my desk and play with my keyboard when I am trying to scrap. It's nice to have a girl in the house so I can do some pink layouts like this one!

Life Is Brighter

With Valentine's Day around the corner I wanted to do a special mini album for my family to let them know my life is brighter with them in it.

For the inside I used the new Zutter removeable protector pages which I love and I used the Bo Bunny Love Bandit papers and embellsihments.

Blog Award

My scrappy friend, Jemma, gave me this Beautiful Blogger Award. I was totally shocked so thanks Jemma!

The award comes with the following responsibilities:
1. I must thank the person who bestowed this honor upon me. (Thanks again Jemma)
2. Copy the award and place it on my blog.
3. Link to the bestower’s site Jemma's Journey
4. List seven interesting things about myself - hmmmm let's see:
1)I was born in Africa
2)I eat cheese every day of my life (I would not be alive if it weren't for cheese
3)I drink a Coke every day (Yes Eleonor I know it's bad for me but I can't live without it)
4)I fell in love with Mike (my DH) at first sight but he wanted nothing to do with me - I showed him :)
5)I took a year of Premed at university
6)I love music - It's one of the things that gives me strength to get through the bad times and let's me let loose for the good times. The right music is food for my soul (right now that's Muse)
7)My second son Linden was born on my birthday (go pisces) and when he's bad or acts up my husband always makes the comment "Well he is born on your birthday" and I always say back he is so not like me (well shhhhhh don't tell my DH but boy is he like me LOL)

With the Olympics coming to Whistler in a few short weeks and my husband Mike gearing up for his part in the opening and closing ceremonies I thought I would change my header to celebrate Whistler. I've added a few of my favorite photos from Whistler over the last few years.

We have been so lucky to be able to go to Whistler every year (thanks Pat and Kingston) and the boys loved learning to ski and snowboard. It is an amazing place to just walk around and has amazing restaurants and stores. The instructors we've had so far have been awesome and Rhys snowboarded down Blackcomb with Mike for the first time last year (I was so proud). One of our favorite things to do is swim outside while it's snowing. This is such a fun place!
