I have done such a poor job of posting pictures lately...and there are multiple reasons. The main one would be that it's hard to post pictures you didn't take!! :) The second would be that I had a hard time locating the USB cable for my new camera. I finally found it last night, so I'm going to post a few pictures.

Here is Alexa on one of her last paci days...I think this was on Friday or Saturday before it went away on Sunday. She has done remarkably well, and I am so proud of her. With the exception of once at daycare and at the basketball game late Friday night when she was sleepy, she has been over a week without it. She doesn't even seem to miss it! My baby is growing up way too fast!! :) I love every minute of it!

Here Mimi and Alexa are playing with Gabe the kitty...Alexa loves to try and hug him, give him kisses, or back up and sit down on him. He doesn't always love her, but he has been super sweet to her no matter what she has done to him!

And finally...my first attempt at card making! This is the thank you card I sent a friend for the contest prize she sent me. She was super sweet to email me and let me know she got it and that she thought I did a good job. Like I said for my first attempt I didn't think it was too bad, but compared to what I've seen her do, it was nothing! I'm going to try the star again on my next card...a little bigger, and with a different technique, but I thought the beads gave it a neat look. I will let you know how it goes. As for the embossing done with the Cuttlebug, I would recommend stamping or writing on the card ahead of time if you are going to emboss the whole thing. It made that slightly difficult!

I hope I'm going to get to scrap this weekend and play with some of my new techniques...including embossing pictures! Embossing folders would be a great stocking stuffer...hint hint...for any scrapper on your list! :) Hope everyone is having a great week! Mine will be better tomorrow once my exams are over. At this point I am really in need of a few weeks that don't include school. They won't necessarily be restful (because I haven't even started Christmas shopping) but at least I won't have the stress of school hanging over me too! Only 21 more days until Christmas...I'm getting so excited, I can't wait to see Alexa rip into presents!! :)

I love the card, the beads are a perfect embellishment!
