...My Nana...

This is a small part of my family. 
My two uncles, Clayton & David, Nanny Cook and my mom Helen!

I'll miss my Nanny, when the time comes for us to say goodbye, our time is short now as she is nearing the end.  She has now been admitted to the Miramichi Hospital in Palliative care, we are all just waiting now, and this is the worst part of it all.  I love this family of mine, and losing one of them is going to be hard. Some may think bad of me for not wanting to see her the way she is now, but I prefer not to see her like this...I want to remember her for who she was before the cancer, I want to remember how she used to be, not how she was when the disease took over. So please dont' think bad of me for not wanting to see her during these last days. I do love her with all my being, she's my Nanna!

She is one hell of a woman, my grandmother, I wish you could all have met her when she was well...she's a crazy one and definitely not your typical grandma to say the least.  She could party with the best of us, and even party harder than most that were half her age, yup, she could drink you under the table!!!
I will always remember spending my summers on the beach (she lived on the beach), I had so much fun during those times, and I will always cherish the times I've spend with her...I can remember all the way back to being just a young girl, sleeping on a bean bag chair (my choice), while she was living in Fredericton, watching those huge squirrels ...and sitting with a kitten, always a kitten for some reason!  I remember so much, and will cherish those memories of my time with her.

I love you Nanny, and will always be thinking of you.

Simply Scrapping Crafts

When I need inspiration & a challenge I sometimes go here to Simply Scrapping Crafts, the ladies are wonderful and the challenges are fun.

Well, a few weeks ago, I uploaded a few of my LO's and this morning I got an email saying that I have been chosen gallery fav!!  So excited for me!  I love when this happens!

Hopefully I can get some more scrapping done over the week, and get my mind off of some personal stuff. 

A lot has happened this weekend, and I really need some me time...I can't wait till the crop at the end of the month, I am so going to relax and enjoy myself.


Sending big hugs to my dear friends and to the family of our fallen paramedic...
you will be missed dearly

I won! I won! I won!!

I won!!!! I won the Big Brother Challenge over at Let's Capture our Memories!! I am so excited, I won a 50$ gift certificate from the online store. You really should check out that store, awesome, awesome deals!

Anyways, I have never created an altered item before, but for the last challenge of the contest, we had to create something, so this is what I made.

I had fun with this challenge!  So I managed to turn this bird house, into a sorta little table with 5 mini albums!  I love it, each mini is for each of my family members, and one for all of us!

Well, that's it for now! Hope to see you soon...I have some shopping to do!
