Scrappin' in a Book?

Sounds weird, doesn't it? It's really fun!!! Scrapbooking is something my mom and I love to do....together, AND apart. In fact, I love scrapbooking SOOOO much that I had my sixth birthday at our local scrapbooking supply store!! Yep. I don't have any pics of the actual party...sorry!! I think my mom has them somewhere... But, I DO have pics of the scrapbook I made. Each girl's scrapbook had a layout cover like this. Each boy's had camo for the background. But both had pictures of each kid and their name. Click on the pics to make them bigger. (BTW, obviously this is mine...but I was little, so the handwriting may be a bit messy):

Then, my friends that came brought their pictures from things like family photos, vacation pics, etc. The store provided all the rest. The store owner is the only one that works there, so she,(along with the "partygoer"'s parents) helped us out with the messy stuff. And sometimes they had to help the little ones with the cutting. All in all, it was a great party. :) I will ALWAYS remember that birthday! I got my first set of earrings then. Even though I think my cousin KNEW I don't have my ears pierced!!! LOL

Here's a few pages in my scrapbook.(there are a LOT more) Keep in mind only a few of these were added in my scrapbooking party. The rest I added at home over a few years. :)

Here's the first page I did that night.

Here is another layout of me in dance.

Here's some from my eighth birthday party(it was a 50s!! So fun!)

And last, but certainly not least, a page I made shortly after the "Charlotte's Web" play I was a narrator in. I was about eight I think......or about to turn eight.


Update on-well, our life I guess you'd say! LOL Colt's doing pretty good, he just got a new couch/bed for his room. AND we got a flatscreen TV I think it's a 32" one. It just HAPPENED to go in HIS room, which I don't think is fair at all!!! :) I have a sinus infection. :( I got it I believe Monday night even though I didn't get fever until Tuesday morning. That's when I went to the doctor. Well, I'm feeling quite a bit better now. I'm still a little stuffy and have a teensy weensy tiny winy cough, and a fever every now and then, but I'm not as tired. Yesterday my fever got to 100.6. Eeekk...I felt HORRIBLE!! My head was swimming, I was cold, sleepy, etc. Mom told me she'd lie down with me so she did. It made me go to sleep faster. I napped for about forty minutes and mom got up a little before me. I'm feeling better now. YAY!! Haha Please pray for this girl we know named China. She's a college student. She lives in the dorms at her college and they sent her home with Swine flu. :0 I'm really scared for her. It actually tested negative , but she has all the symptoms. Soooo it's either Swine flu, or regular flu. Either one is dangerous. Please keep her in your prayers. And you know what my "older" brother did (What was he thinking?)? He went to her house to be with her brother!! Yep, and then he came home! I avoided him the WHOLE time. LOL Don't get me wrong, I love 'em, but I just can't take a chance. I already have a sinus infection, and that weakened my immune system. I'd have a BIG chance of getting it! So nope, not going to do anything with Colt for awhile. Just keep my family and I in your prayers if you don't mind because I don't want them catching it and I would like to feel better for dance. Thanks. And speaking of dance.....I'M DOING A SOLO THIS YEAR!!! I'm soooooo excited!!! I'm hoping for Jazz. Wish me luck!!!

God Bless and en"Joy"!!

Love, Joy =D
