New Freebie September 6, 2008

Filed under: Freebies,Scrapbooking — andreawhitt @ 9:46 pm

I have a new freebie called Boy Bundle.  I loved the colors from my Flower Patch freebie and thought that since it was a girly kit I would make one good for boys with the same colors.  Here is what I came up with…

Here’s the link to the 4shared folder that you will find the 5 zips to this kit.  I have dial up so I have to break it down to small zips so that I can upload pieces without being interupted by phone calls and aol restarting on me.

CU is allowed, you can read my TOU in each zip.

3 New Layouts April 26, 2008

Filed under: family,Scrapbooking — andreawhitt @ 7:08 pm

I have been scrappin’ away these past few days.  I’m glad though cause I’ve really missed it.  I’ve just been so busy and sick all winter…haven’t had the time or energy to sit here long enough to make much.  But, luckily, I’ve been back into it.  Miranda is playing in the floor learning to crawl and get around.  She is even trying to pull herself up on stuff and that worries me, lol.  I’m not ready to watch her get hurt.  She came so close to busting her little mouth the day before yesterday cause she stood herself up at the coffee table and her legs went out from under her before I could get to her.  She hit the floor pretty hard but she didn’t cry.  And luckily she didn’t hit her face on her way down.  I know she has to learn just like Marie and Katie did but I can’t help but worry.  I’m just a mommy and I don’t want my babies to get hurt.  Here are my 3 newest layouts.  If you want to see them in my Digital Freebies gallery with the layout credits I have the links below the layouts.

My 2 Newest Layouts April 24, 2008

Filed under: family,Scrapbooking — andreawhitt @ 7:56 pm

I’ve made two layouts of Miranda.  One is of her biting my finger (yes, it hurt too, lol) and one is of her getting sick last week.  It’s something how they can get so sick so fast and already be better.  But thanks to tons of prayers and faith my baby is better.  I took her to the doctor this morning for another check-up and Dr. Patel said this illness was all finished “for now”.  I don’t like that last part of that sentence but I’m glad my baby is better.  She said that it could start back but she doesn’t think it will.  I have to watch her for fever, bruise looking spots appearing, painful cry, and any signs of blood in her diaper or spit up.  I can’t give her any medications because if it was a medication that sarted this, a medication could aggravate it.  The nurse that discharged her from the hospital said I could give her Tylenol BUT that if I take her pain away and calm her I might mask something that needs further attention.  Makes sense to me!  It’s just very stressful to know that it could possibly happen again.  I thought my baby was dying.  The nurses didn’t even know if she was going to be ok or not.  None of the nurse that came into her room knew anything about Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura.  Her doctor said it usually isn’t a huge issue, but where she was so young and swelling and bleeding so badly not to mention her painful scream…she admitted that even she herself was really conserned about Miranda.  Thank you Lord!!! For taking care of my baby and helping her get through it.  OK, I’ll try to quit rambling now…and post my layouts.  I’m just still a nervous wreck over the whole tramatic experience.  Here’s the layout of her asleep in the hospital with an IV and the places on her legs…

And here the one where she bit me…painful…but funny 🙂

Hello, Welcome to my blog! April 20, 2008

Filed under: family,Rambling,School,Scrapbooking — andreawhitt @ 12:44 am

I decided to give word press a try since I got tired of trying to change my template at Blogger and it keeps giving me crazy error messages.  Of course, lol, I may be doing something wrong but I followed the directions and still couldn’t get anywhere with it.  So here I am.  A little about me…hmmm…well, I’ve been married to my husband, Edward, for almost 7 years and we have 3 beautiful daughters ages 6, 4 and 8 months.  I absolutely love digital scrapbooking and designing.  One day my babies will looks back on my scrapbook layouts and cherish them.  I also love photography, even though I still have a LOT to learn about the subject.  I just basically point and shoot with my digital camera and then edit my pictures with photoshop.  I’m getting ready to start college to get an Associate degree in Information Systems Technology.  I’m really excited about getting back into school.  I was a nursing student when I found out my baby was on the way and I’ve decided that’s just too dangerous and time consuming for me.  I like computers a LOT more than poking and proding at people anyway, lol.  I’m a pretty easy going, down-to-earth person.  At least I try to be 🙂
