On the 11th day of Christmas....

It is an All about me day! LOL. I have some plans of beauty today. I was just too jealous of Kerri's I have too!! Especially before the holiday jam. So, unfortunately the kids broke my wallet and my darling will KILL me if I go spend tons to get everything done. I bought the dye, and restocked my manicure supplies. Got my good old tan in a can! LMAO and will have a day at it! We will see if I have the stuff in me to turn around this old look. Especially before my birthday. I need to have a great look to go out right?? Hehehe. You would be surprised, but the gray in my hair is far more than anyone my age should have. But..... thanks to Clairol it can and will be hidden! LOL. I started my all about me time early though and did a few scrap pages for my personal book. I picked up the girls books today to insert some new pages that I received from printing and realized how hefty they are compared to my own. Not that I am complaining as I have a blast filling up their books and keeping up with their pictures. But, in light of things its okay to be selfish at times! So without further ado, please allow me to introduce myself!!
These pics were taking at the beginning of this year. I did it for a challenge on SBF called Here's your sign. You were to scrap yourself with your zodiac symbol and birth date.
This pic is from earlier this month. I was out watching the girls and got lost in thought, Joe yelled at me to look at him and "snap" LOL But I was releasing some stress in thought and thought it was a great way to look back to remind myself how to do it later! LMAO
Both of these pages are done with Colies beautiful new kit called A New Day. (Which happens to be on sale right now for 2.99) I am in love with her design and know for sure I will be using this one alot!
Andria , could you email me or leave me your addy so I can send along the recipe to you?? ALSO- Thank you ALL for your lovely comments and letting me know more about you all too. I am amazed at how friendship can be made through the scrapping circle and how much all of us truly have in common. I did talk with my dad, and told him no matter how hard it may be, she bought them for this occasion and would want nothing more than for it be as that. He asked me to do the wrapping of them, he just isn't ready. But I hope more than anything that it will be a reminder to my little brothers and sisters that she still and always will love them and be with them.

Love the LOs. It's good to take time jsut for you. Don't sweat the gray. I've had to dye my hair since 8th grade and I'm 28 now, so about 14 years LOL. It's been noticiable that long. The only time I've let it go is during my pregnancies, and I'm glad the last baby was it becuase it was really gray LOL.

You look GREAT!!! I love the LO's!!! I'm glad you are taking time for yourself also, just wish it could be true pampering and let someone else do all the work.

I just wanted to give you one last big THANK YOU for all the freebies you have given out on your 12 days. This is the last day I will be able to pick anything up (tear) as we will start our Christmas trek and internet connections where we will be are questionable at best. Sure wish I wasn't missing out on the double freebie, I have been over at JFTSOI also and there is some great stuff there!! I will be checking back in as soon as we get back, on Christmas day since my hubby has to work that of the unlucky ones. Wishing you all the best for your Christmas, I hope that it is everything that your heart desires it will be. Blessings to you.

You go girl! As someone once said to me! I hope you enjoyed your day of self-pampering. As for grey hairs, I had my first at 9! Back then my Mum used to pull them out, but come 22 I had to start with the dying and now at 38 - I have no choice!!! It doesn't help when on your Mum and Dads side everyone is grey!! Never mind - thanks to Clairol as you put it.
Love you layouts, I really like the picture your husband took, you really are miles away and really beautiful too.
Sorry I never said hello yesterday. I managed to catch a 24hr tummy bug thing. Still feel as though I have been kicked in the stomach, but I am at least up and about. Unfortunately Robert (3) got it in the middle of the night, so I had to put my "suffering" on hold for him. But he was back to normal after a sleep in Mummy and Daddy's bed!
Thanks for yet another present.
CU tomorrow

Thanks so much for the freebie.

I just want to say that when my grandmother died she had already done her christmas shopping. It was special to me to get her christmas present "from beyond the grave" as it were. It showed that she cared enough about us all to think about us even though she was fighting her cancer.

I wish you strength & pleasant memories as you wrap her presents.

Thanks for another lovely freebie! Boy! Are you spoiling us or what??!! I'm so happy that you talked with your dad, and I understand why he's not ready yet (my dad wouldn't be ready yet - and mama's been gone since May 29, 1999) but I'm sure that even he will come to see them as a reminder of her love, just as you hope. Love your layouts - and it's good that you're going to spoil yourself a little! You deserve it! ((Hugs))
