rearranging, prayer, digiscrapping...

So, I'm headed to my new school in the morning to rearrange.  Our supervisor doesn't like the last layout I did, so I drew up a little sketch and sent it to my new nurse to see what she thinks.  She likes it.  And so, I'm going to be there at 7 a.m. to help her get it rearranged the new way BEFORE I take the kids to school and BEFORE I go to work.  Yeah, long day but so worth it.

I've learned new things the last few days.  I've been helping my nurse review files.  WOW!  Lots of paperwork.  It's nuts but I know it will help her tremendously with the work she is about to start.

I'm learning to pray in a different way.  I know my daughter needs more help than I can give her but she doesn't "hear" me.  I'm just noise to her.  Any and all prayer is appreciated.  God, we need an intervention.

Made a digiscrap page tonight. DigiKit by Bruissements (Raccrocheuse). Yeah, the French site. Word art by Word Art World.  Jen has fabulous word art!  Check her out!

Starry Night

One of my favorite new songs is "Starry Night" by Chris August.  I find myself singing it randomly during the day.  Thank the Lord for amazing music that helps bring Him to mind and helps lead me into worship with Him.

From the Birds that Sing, In the Tallest Trees.
To the Human Life, of you and me.
From the Desert Sands, to the place we stand.
He is God of All, He is Everything.


I'm giving my life to the only one who makes the Moon reflect the sun.
Every Starry Night, that was His design.
I'm giving my life to the only son, who was and is and yet to come
Let the praises ring, 'cause he is everything
'Cause he is everything

From the Autumn Leaves, that will ride the breeze
To the Faith it takes, to pray and sing
From the Painted sky, to my plank filled eye
He is God of all, He is everything


I'm giving my life to the only one who makes the Moon reflect the sun.
Every Starry Night, that was His design.
I'm giving my life to the only son, who was and is and yet to come
Let the praises ring, 'cause he is everything.

Ohhhhhhh (everything)

Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
I believe
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
I believe

I'm giving my life to the only one who makes the Moon reflect the sun
On that Starry Night, He changed my life.
I'm giving it all to the only son who gave me hope when I had none.
So let the praises ring,
Ohhhh Let the Praises Ring

I'm giving my life to the only one who makes the Moon reflect the sun.
Every Starry Night, that was His design.
I'm giving my life to the only son, who was and is and yet to come
Let the Angels sing, that he is Heavenly

So let the Praises ring
'Cause he everything

Even as I'm creating this post, I'm listening to it.  I added it to one of my "mix" cds that play 24 hours/7 days a week.   I want the enemy to know who's worshiped in my home... and it's not lord of the airwaves (satan).  It's the Creator of the Universe!  

Night of Joy at Disney in 3 weeks.  I have been saving a little each month for the kids and I to go.  I'm still not absolutely positive I will be going.  Considering taking my portion and paying bills that are behind until I start getting paid again.  We'll see.

Back to work...

I went back to work yesterday.  The first 4 1/2 hours was spent getting updates to procedures.  The next 1/2 hour was spent driving.  Then an hour of updates with our team. 

I spent the last hour of the day at my new school.  Yes, I'm changing schools!  Yahoo!  I've been working in the clinic at the school I am currently at for 9 years!!!  I have never spent that long in one place.  The tech at my kids' school moved to a different school leaving the position open.  It was offered to me and I jumped at the chance.  Not only does it give me a change of school, I'll have WINDOWS in my office for the first time EVER!!!  I'm so excited.  The nurse is sweet and I believe we are going to work great together AND I get a window!  I'm so going to watch me some storms!

I'm still digiscrapping.  I finished a couple challenges this week.  And I won a kit from Shell's Playground.  Yah!  First kit I've ever won.  *dances*  The page below "Worn Out" was made with that kit.

Breezy's 15th Birthday was done with parts from Scrap Matter's 3rd Birthday Celebration.  Papers by Scrapmuss, word art by Graham Like the Cracker and cluster by Stephanie.

Chaz' 2nd Christmas done with digiscrap kit by Delicious Scraps.

Breezy playing in the rain was done with digiscrap kit from Au coin de l'objectif. Yes it's in French. Google Chrome will translate pages written in foreign languages with the click of one spot on the options page.

Chaz' first year of basketball.  Digiscrap kit from the Surfs Up collaboration by Scraps N Pieces & the Scrappy Kat.

Breezy after playing in the rain.  Kit from Teapot Lady at DSO. Font "Love Ya Like a Sister" from

Chaz at his 8th Birthday Party.  Digiscrap kit by Free2Scrap (Tough Enough).

Breezy colored her hair and then spent a half hour trying to get the perfect picture to post to facebook!  LOL  Digiscrap kit from Free2Scrap (Tough Enough).

My sister at Bass Pro.  We all spent time trying on hats.  Here she was testing out the camouflage gear!  Digiscrap kit by Rebecca B and done for a contest.

Hope you enjoyed the digiscrap pages almost as much as I enjoyed making them.

It's my birthday!

And a birthday at ScrapMatters digiscrapping store too! How cool is that?

In honor of the 3rd b'day of ScrapMatters, Happy Scrap Girl has a giveaway.  Check out her giveaway and maybe pick up some amazing digiscrap stuff for your pages!

As for me, I turned 47 today.  I'd like to say I feel different but it's just another day.  I'm extremely grateful to God that I have another day to spend with my amazing children and serving Him.  Some days I don't do so very great but I know that each morning His mercies are new and my page is blank and I get to start all over again.  So I'm taking today to "start all over again."  Thank you God!

I am usually in my own little word over here on my blog.  It's been nice to have visitors again.  Maybe I should post more of these layouts.  Or.... my Mom asked if she could see, maybe I should just create a blog for digi-scrapping?  No idea.  I'd have to tie it to a different email addy though.

Surgery and digiscrapping

I had surgery on my left knee yesterday.  There was a tear in the meniscus.  I'm doing well.  Not a lot of pain fortunately.  Removed the big knee brace last night.  Doctor said start bending knee as soon as possible.  So I'm bending it already.

Did a couple scrap pages last night and today.  

The first is Breezy in crazy high heels.  Kit is Glamouricious by Jabi Scraps.  Didn't it turn out cool?  I tinted the shoe pics to make them coordinate a little bit better.

The second is from Chaz' hiking trip on the Appalachian Trail.  The kit is from Saphira's World Scrapdesign and is part of the Great Outdoors Blog Train.  Word art is from Create with TLC.  She has amazing word art!

That's all for now.  :o)
