Imagination is a great thing! I love looking at life through the curious eyes of my 2 year old. At every bend there is something new and exciting, under every rock a creature to discover, beyond his reach is an adventure just waiting to unfold. Matthew is curious, spontaneous, spirited and a funny little thing. This morning was one of those mornings that started with the 'imagination' on high and it just set the mood for the rest of day so far. I made toast (cuban toast) for breakfast this morning and as I was piddling around in the kitchen I hear the exclaimation of my son "WOW!, Look Mama, look!!! As any good mother I rush over to see what could be so spectacular...he shows me his bread (the pic above) and with a smile from ear to ear, he proudly proclaims "A Happy Face". I couldn't help but to grab my phone and snap a pic of his AMAZING TOAST. He continued to eat joyfully and between mouthfuls I could hear him exclaim "I eat Happy Face".
How cute is that? I love the imagination of a child!!!
If you're thinking of trying Digi, quick pages are the way to go. Digi Quick Pages make it easy for you to create a page without the frustration of creating something new right off the bat. Learning to navigate a new program can be difficult especially if you are a *DO IT YOURSELF* learner. The great part of quick pages is that it allows you to create instantly while still learning whichever program you are using for Digital Scrapbooking. The page is already designed for you, all you have to do is *Drop* the picture into the open window. Digi Quick Pages is a fantastic way to be creatively digi while learning.
Come one, come all. Tell your friends about it and scream it from the rooftops. I'm so excited I'm bursting at the seams. I've created my first QUICK PAGE. I'm loving the site Michelles Angels, I'm currently creating for them and you can get the quick page here (just scroll down to find the download HERE button)or you can visit the site! Michelles Angels Shop also has a wonderful selection of Digi Kits by some of the most amazing Designers I've come across in awhile, including Digiscraptions Designs, who supplied this kit ALL BOYS, in order for me to create this layout. Thank you for stopping by, please leave a comment and don't forget to send your friends here to get their Quick Page Freebie.

This is the daughter of a very good friend of mine, isn't she just beautiful? I'd like to thank her for letting me play with her picture as I created in Digi. I'm loving everything I'm learning and it was great to have such a willing participant in the adventure. I hope you enjoy the page!

It's about time..after 7 months of not scrapping, I think I found my mojo. The ladies over at The Shaker Box are always a great source of inspiration and some are personal cheerleaders in getting me motivated. Thank you. I'm looking forward to some Blog Challenges and other scrapping fun. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and looking at the latest creations.
Well Matthew's first day of Preschool was August 24th, so here we are at the end of week 2 and he's adjusting well. The first few days were a little difficult, but I guess that's normal. His biggest hurdle is naptime! Some days he does well and naps, but other days he doesn't. It seems he has a strong opinion about this and seems to be wreaking havoc on innocent bystanders by not allowing the other littles ones to nap. I hang my head in shame and hope that he will adjust soon. But all is not lost, in just these few days he's made friends, loves his teachers and enjoys school. At the end of the week we receive a package of projects that have been completed by him including coloring, painting, pasting, cutting and glitter...I love all that he's doing. As for me, well the adjustment has been harder, I cried everyday the first week after I dropped him off. Today, I just teared up, so I'm on my way to recovery as well....(Don't laugh at me). We are so proud of you Matthew, keep up the good work!!! You are a GOOD BOY!!!

Yesterday we were out in the yard when hubby spotted a tiny turtle just hanging out on our deck. I'm excited to see our new visitor and immediately set up a little make-shift pond for him out by the palm trees and rocks. Mr. Turtle is not interested and scampers off. All I can think is that I hope Mr. Turtle will stick around for Matthew to see him. Now, for the most part, I'm an animal lover, not that I want to go around catching lizards and frogs, but I can deal with just about any little creature. I'm definitely a let's give them a little pet...hubby on the other hand finds no pleasure in being one with nature. As far as hubby is concerned they have their space and we have ours no need to collide. Later in the evening, Mr. Turtle is still hanging out on our deck. Matthew is definitely like his Mommy, he's all about checking out the little creatures. I love that he doesn't have fear and that he is interested in this little bitty thing in Mommy's hand. One day soon I know Matthew will be asking for a pet, just remember to ask Mommy.
Maya Angelou : The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.
