New look and my B'day Gift

Hello all!! It's been awhile!! Been busy with the little munchkin and stuff!! I had a BIRTHDAY on the 17th (the big "37")!! Whoo hoooo!!! Just another day really!! Ended up helping Bentley work on a side job on my Birthday!! Of all days, huh? Oh well, it was fun - gave us some time together. Anyways, look what MAMA got for her B'day (well, it's a family present really)!!

Isn't he the cutest? His name is Tiger (Winnie the Pooh Tiger)!! He is 9 weeks old now!! I took him to the vet on last Friday and he was a little under weight (1.6 pounds) and has an upper respiratory infection, (vet gave me medicine) but other than that he is perfect!! I can tell that he will be up to par on his weight soon - because he is always hungry - tries to take stuff away from you!! So cute!! He's a cuddler - which I was hoping for!! Let's just hope that he doesn't outgrow it!! Will keep you updated on him!!


I finally got a new look!! Been trying for awhile to figure this blog layout and header stuff!! Even made my own but having trouble loading it right!! Must have it in the wrong size or something!! Anyway, I found a really great gal who give them away - Allie Brown!! This lady does awesome work and it was so easy to add - she even gives you directions on her blog. Check her out - THANKS Allie for the great layout and Designs by Vicki for allowing Allie to use her "Summer Cocktails" kit!!

The Book of Revelations!

I received this in an email.

This will make you re-think : A Trivia question in Sunday School : Howlong is the beast allowed to have authority in Revelations ? Guess theAnswer? Revelations Chapter 13 tells us it is 42 months, and you know what that is.
Almost a four-year term to a Presidency. All I can say is Lord Have Mercy on us.!!!!!!According to The Book of Revelations the anti-Christ is:The anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40's, of MUSLIM descent, who willdeceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything ..
Is it OBAMA?? I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to repost this as many times as you can!
Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet...do it! I refuse to take a chance on this unknown candidate who came out of nowhere....

Popular Songs

My good friend Gloria Val Verde me to this fun site that will tell you the popular song on the day you were born. What a cool thing!! Mine was Maggie Mae/Reason to Believe by Rod Stewart. It will also tell you songs on other dates (examples: The day you got married, the day your child was born, etc.). Here are a few more that I found:

The day Ben (dh/so) was born: Baby Come Back by Player

The day my oldest son Tyler was born: The Boy is Mine by Brandy & Monica

The day my youngest Caden was born: SexyBack by Justin Timberlake

The day I got married: Have You Ever REally Loved a Woman by Bryan Adams

The day my Mom was born: I Love You by Bing Crosby

The day my Dad was born: I Will Follow Him by Little Peggy March

Fun to see those!! Check it out and see what the popular song was on your special days!!

Big Boy Bed and some FREEBIES!!!

Hello everyone!! How's it going? Here it is pretty well. Guess what we did last night? That's right we changed Caden's crib into a toddler (Big Boy Bed). I have been dreading this day but knew it was coming. It only took about 45 minutes and lots of putting him back into the bed before he actually stayed in the bed and fell asleep. Check out his Big Boy Bed...

I thought ahead when I bought the crib and got a 4-in-1 that would change from crib to toddler bed to full size bed. Let me tell you it is well worth the money so that you don't have to buy a toddler bed (which they seem to outgrow in no time) or a full size. Will just have to buy the mattress. The only bad thing is when he gets up in the morning I won't be able to lay in the bed for a few more minutes like I could when he was in his crib. He is such a busy body that as soon as he wakes he's on the go. My little one is growing up (too fast)!! Sniff!! Sniff!!

Now I have some more FRAME FREEBIES for you. Donna has requested Grandkids. So, here it is along with other versions.

Questions and another FRAME FREEBIE

Hello everyone!! I hope that you enjoyed the Family Frame Freebie. I made it in PSP. I have has someone who is using Photoshop Elements 6 ask me how to use it!! In PSP I use it just like a template. Can someone please let me know how you would use it in PSE? I do have PSE5 and this is what I came up with:

Here's what I did:

Open the frame template

Then use your Magic Wand Tool and click on the frame - you should see marching ants around the frame

Next open the photo that you want to put into the frame and do all your enhancing or whatever you need to do to it

Then hit ctrl A to select and then ctrl C to copy the photo

Then create a new layer above the frame

Next click on edit and paste into selection

Your photo should be there and you will have to resize it to the size of the frame but it is below the FAMILY word!!

**If someone has a better way please let me know!!

And here's another freebie for you today:

Here's my example:

Hope you like it!! Still taking any requests!!
