My biggest critic, biggest/littlest Fan?

So today we (Mostly me) have been cleaning up in my scrapbook room rearranging cleaning out sorting and trying to get things to a better organization. When I got ill it became a catch all in there. Everything was being tossed on top of my scrapbook island (makes me ill to think) and in the floor and Bella had a great time with paints and inks and all sorts of things.
We (again with that WE mostly ME again) are taking my scrapbook island apart and putting it up against the walls more like cabinets with a counter top and a smaller table with cubes (with counter top) that is lower to the ground since I don't stand to scrap as much anymore. I have another counter top that is square and at the time we got it said I would hold on to it. Good thing I did. Also this way I can utilize space better (hopefully)

Bella looked through a lot of albums at older layouts I had done today. I loved hearing her say "OH I LOVE THIS ONE" "This is my favorite NO THISSS ONE"
One thing I found to be the most common thing, She loved the pages that had journaling on them. "Mama You need to write more STUFF on it, you know about what I was doin' and how cute I was and how much YOU LOOOOOVE mee and all?"  Me:""oh really?" Bella: Giving me her best literary stare with raviolis smeared on her face "YES REALLY MAMA, People Like that kinda Stuffs, well and ME TOO!" :with her sprakly grin really wide ME: "Good thing there are some of those in there huh?" Bella: "YUP" ME :gives a kinda stern look Bella: " I MEAN YUP-MAM"
Me" You are so silly" Bella hehehe
 SO you seeee,  err hear, ughm READ? The pages that just mainly had a title, or the pretty pages that had just a word on them. She thought were okay or nice, BUT. She really liked hearing the story again about what was going on in the photo.
She liked being reminded what we did, What I was thinking at the time maybe (well sometimes)



There are so many many more she just kept going ohhhh ahhhhh Loved reading them and laughing. She REALLLLY got to laughing when she saw this:

She remembered it though. Remembered getting in trouble and remembered me being so angry I cried.
(Although I stopped and took photos of her hahaa)
She loves this one of Nana Faye's Red Hat.

But the one's like this, Were her favorite.

and this.

My kid... She is going to make me journal more. What about your kids? What do they like? Have you had these conversations? Do they pull out their books and look at them? Who looks at your books the most? LET ME KNOW!!

A new post!

Are you as shocked as I am? I know it has been some time between posts. A lot has happened. My baby has gone back to

school. 4th GRADE oh my goodness say it isn't so!!! She is getting so TALL. Which I know compared to me tall is everything. She is definitely taking after her father in the tall department and feet.

She is doing the cheerleader thing again this year. SO CUTE she is. Love watching her cheer.
(gives me lots to scrap book also)

Speaking of Scrapbooking Take a look at Scrapping Frenzy's blog today. I am the guest designer and did a blog post today. There is a tutorial for a Mini album I made using left over packaging from those embellishment packs we all get (that look really cute!)
I tore the front of the package but It didn't stop me! I show you how to turn it into a mini album. Check it out. SCRAPPING FRENZY
I have several more cards and layouts to share that I have been working on that I have not posted. Bella and I did a lot of scrapping this summer while I was laid up. We made Thank you Cards for People that did so much to help us out while I had been in the hospital and helped us out with various things afterwards. (we so appreciate everyone you have no idea what you mean to us)
Bella would roll my wheelie cart back beside my bed bring my board back here, and we would get to it. We had several people also that were sick or just needed some lovin' that we made cards for as well.
(I had broken out with shingles real bad after that so was afraid to send some of them due to some of the illness that some had but NOW I am getting to FINALLY mail them bare with us. I do NOT wish shingles on anyone it is dreadful painful and if remote chance you could get it I always tend to go on side of caution on that!!! Be glad)

I am still going to dr visits like crazy I have 2 new dr's added to the collection a nephrologist (expensive fancy name for kidney dr) and an additional MS dr. He is an MS specialist that worked with the MS specialist at UAB that I went to that I LOVED. He is also the assistant MS professor here and is very smart. he is looking over all my tests and labs everything since my dx deciding should they switch my med. (I keep flaring up and he is looking for the triggers and seeing what else they can do)
I really liked him and his staff. Hey whatever can keep me less sick I WILL DO IT.

I do not like taking these injections and the medications that make me feel worse seems like they keep adding more and more and more meds. If I can take the IV and get by with less medications. I am leaning towards it (after I do some more research and find out what it will do to the shingles and also kidneys)
I have so much to look forward to and I don't have time for all this. My Bella bug is busy busy

The count down has started for our Disney trip. OH I cannot wait.
I am already starting to collect Disney scrapbook stuff. Gonna be a lot of scrappin goin on when we get back. YAY.

I will be back with more scrapbook projects. Be sure and look at the Scrapping Frenzy Blog.
Hope you have a wonderful Friday!
