I’ve made a new freebie for everyone.  It was made for the color challenge at Digital Scrapbooking dot Org.  I fell inlove with these colors.  They are beautiful!  Here a preview of the kit.  The links to 4Shared are below the preview.  I’d love you see what you create with my kit 🙂  If you can, please leave a comment and link to your layout.  It’s not required though.

I survived my first day :) August 9, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — andreawhitt @ 5:14 pm

Yesterday was my first day at work.  I am now the People Greeter at my local WalMart.  I haven’t been trained for that yet.  I spent all day yesterday doing orientation and a bunch of reading and quizes on the computer.  Man…there’s a ton of them.  I hope to finish them up tomorrow so I can start my actual job.  I’m still nervous about it though.  I don’t think it will be too bad, just dread the very beginning and getting the hang of it.  I’m good at smiling and being friendly so that part is down path, lol.  Just gotta check merchandise if the alarm goes off.  I am so glad I got the job though, we need some extra income soooo bad.  Now I can pull some of the weight of finacial burden off my husband.  It’s hard with three kids but we make ends meet the best we can.  Hopefully, it won’t be quite so hard now.  I just miss my babies when I’m working.  But I know I’m helping them too.  The only thing I don’t like about it is that several days next week I have to work 4 till 11 and I’ll go pick Marie and Katie up for school and bring them to my m-i-l and get their homework out for her to help them because I’ll have to get to work.  I’m glad she’s gonna help me with them.  Well, better run.  I’ve been working on a freebie kit for a color challenge at Digital Scrapbooking dot Org.  I love the colors and am having fun playing with them.

Wow, I should blog more often

I noticed it’s been quite a while since I last blogged so I thought I’d jump in here and do it.  I can’t believe summer is almost over.  It’s been an interesting one for sure.  This year I took my girls to see fireworks for the first time.  They also got to go to the pool and a carnival for the first time.  I guess you could say we’ve had a summer of firsts.  My husband usually tells me I can’t go or comes up with some lame excuse why I can’t but this year I didn’t ask.  I just said we’re going here on this day and took them 🙂  They’re too big to be sitting home all summer doing nothing.  They loved the fireworks.  One of Katie’s friends from school showed up and she got to watch the fireworks with us.  One of Marie’s friends was there too and his family sat beside of us.  I hadn’t seen real fireworks in about 8 or 9 years so it was a real treat for me too.  We also watched a tire burn-out earlier that day that was interesting.  My husband would have LOVED that but he didn’t want to go with us.  His mom went.  Two of her brothers had vehicles in the burn out.  They really ‘smoked um’ too.  One of uncle Ken’s tired busted because he burned them so long.  Honaker (VA) had a beautiful firework display.  I had never been down there to watch them but I’ll be going every year now.  It was amazing. 
   The carnival was a big hit too.  Katie was just barely 42″ tall but she got to ride all but one of the rides without me.  I couldn’t tell you how many times I had to walk up the steps to slide down this huge slide.  They said she was a bit too short to ride it alone.  I think I lost a couple pounds that day, lol.  But we had tons of fun so it was worth it.
   I’ll have to post the layouts I’ve made of our summer fun.  I am working on an album of just this summer.  Soon, school will be going back and the pool will close.  I found out today what teacher my girls are getting.  Katie will be in Ms. Vanessa Hess’s class.  I’m glad because Marie had her for kindergarten and I really liked her.  Marie will be in Ms. Tracy’s room.  I don’t really know her yet but I haven’t heard any complaints about her, so that’s good, lol.  I dread to see the summer go but I’m excited about school too.  I need that schedule to add structure to my life, I guess you could say.  Maybe I’ll get to do more scrappin and cleaning when they’re in school.  I’m supposed to start working soon though and don’t yet know what my hours will be.  I got the job as exit/greeter at my local walmart.  I really need the money so I’m excited about it.  Well, I’ll quit rambling now and get back to this fall kit I’ve been working on.  I’ll be back in a bit to post some new layouts I’ve made.  I just have to upload them to photo bucket first.  Later 🙂


3 More (matching) Layouts May 4, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — andreawhitt @ 5:33 pm

I have finally been taking the time to scrap again.  It is so hard to do much while playing and taking care of my babies.  I have so many pictures I want to get scrapped and so many ideas floating around in my head but now I’m getting the time to sit here and get them out and show them off.  I downloaded Retrodiva’s free ‘Be Mine’ kit and made a layout of Katelynn with it.  I thought the kit was so gorgeous I just had to use it again so I decided to make one of all three of my girls with the kit.  Here’s the 3 layouts I made…

Sweet Marie

Sweet Katelynn

Sweet Miranda

Aren’t my daughters so beautiful?!  I am so proud of those little boogers, lol.  They are my world! 


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.
