I bet that got your attention! At least I hope it did. My good friend and awesome designer Kim Broedelet EHD (external hard drive) has failed her. She unplugged it to plug it in to her DH computer so she could back it up to disks and when she plugged it back in she couldn't find anything on it. Her DH took a look too and he couldn't find anything either. So now she sent it into a recovery service where they try to recover as much data as they can. She said she lost about 3 months of work. You can go here to her blog and read about it. I know how devastated I would be if that happened to me. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to burn your stuff to disks for safe keeping. Kim does burn it to disks, but life gets so busy you don't always do it as often as you should and before you know it 3 months have passed. I know that I will be very busy burning to disks for the next few days. I know that it is time consuming, but it is oh sooo worth it.

I have been working on some LO's this week and I made a couple that are not my usual style, but I loved making them and I think they turned out pretty good. This first one is our granddaughter and great-grandson getting set for the first kiss-with sippy cup in hand and everything. This was such a cute picture and I couldn't wait to scrap it. Than Michelle McCoy (Wolvsie) came out with this new kit named "Joy"-it was perfect for this photo. You can find the kit at Crafty Scraps store. She also has a freebie QP using this kit on her blog. The wordart Adorable was a freebie from Jazzieal.
This next one is my grandson. I used an Illuminated brush and a heart brush, I made the BG paper, and the leafy cluster frame was a freebie from Kim Broedelet which you can find on her blog. And you can get the kit of 5 leafy clusters in her store at DSO. I can't remember where I got the WA so if anyone recognizes it please let me know so I can give proper credit.

My sister had sent me some pictures of her baby too. It's her Border Terrier and she is her spoiled baby.
She so loves her doggie-so I decided to make a page for her. Credits: Paper is from Kimb's CU grab bag on sale at DSO, I blended the first picture into the paper to give it some texture, the frame is a freebie from Jen at Chaos Lounge using Kims new grab bag, the "counting trash" alpha is by Katie Pertiet at designer digitals and the the wordart is from Jazzy's "Doggy Treats" set on sale at DSO.

Now I have one more I would like to show you. I made this one using a challenge freebie kit from Fiona Storey at ScrapbookMax. This was given to those of us who made or commented on the Guess Who contest last week. I took the picture at a mini waterfall I passed when I was taking my GS home to Iowa this summer. There were two swans and I just think they are beautiful birds and I was lucky enough to get a couple pictures of them.
Well that's all I have for today. Remember Backup! Backup! Backup!
Till next time take care and have fun!!
