Hate not having internet!

So haven't posted anything in a very long time since i we don't have Internet at my house =(.
But truth be told i haven't made much these days. My craft area is a mess and still don't have a thing to hold my stamps lol

I did make a card for a colleges friends baby shower! It turned out SO cute!
Its hard to read on here but it says "Here comes prince charming"

Me (left) and the beautiful mom to be Jackie!
look at how tiny that baby bump is!

It was nice getting to see that group of girls again.
Aiden was the center of attention everyone thought he was just to cute.
He is such a lil heart breaker

So mypinkstamper did 12 challenges for National Scrapbook day (May 07)
I did all but 2

Here is what i did for them!

Challenge 1. Anything Cupcake!!!

How cute is this cupcake? I actually used old 3-ring binder separators i had left over from college! How true is the stamp i used "too much of a good thing is simply wonderful" ^_^

Challenge 3. Breast cancer theme item

Simple but sweet!
Last year my best friends dad past away from brain cancer and in his honor we started a rely for life team and one of our members is a breast cancer survivor!!!

Challenge 4. Make something with a Mother's Day Theme!

                                                                                    Well this challenge came at a great time i didn't have my moms mothers day card made yet so when i see her tomorrow she'll actually get this pretty little card.
Its made with a page from an OLD woman's day magazine that was left by the person who lived in my house before us

Challenge 5. Any 3-D item OR 3-D item on your card

April showers brings may flowers
May is the best month of the year!  Mothers day, My anniversary, And MY BIRTHDAY! WOOT
I made the flowers that POP out from the middle of the card out of colorful ads in some magazines i had

Challenge 6. Incorporate a TAG into your project!
I am in love with this little card! its so sweet!
I hate my hand writing but i didn't like the way "Escape" looked when i cut it out on my cricut but i think i did an okay job on it ;-)

Challenge 7. Make a Scrapbook Page!
Well i Dont scrapbook very much if at all but i figure with the birth of my first child it wouldn't hurt to start.
If you know me you know i LOVE LOVE trees lol
I think its cute and simple and not to bad for the start of my scrapbooking life =P

Challenge 8. Make a summer themed project!

Summer Breeze makes me fill fine......
My sister is always so lucky when in comes to yard sales, the blue and white paper is actually wrapping paper that my sister got a HUGE roll of from so yard sale!!!!

Challenge 9. Use Glitz, Glam and Glitter in your project!

So i was REALLY shocked at how hard this one was for me!
If you ask my family they would say if I'm "lost" in a store just try and find the row with the most shiny objects lol... whats sad is it true haha
But in all my craft stuff i had nothing shiny, glittery etc.
but i did have paint (the blue background) and silver nail polish ^_^

Challenge 10. Make a layout or card with a pet in it!

This card turned out pretty cute!
I wish i could find the cord for my camera so i could use it and not my phone.

Challenge 11. Make a project and use Pink, Green and Black in it!

I have to say i love pink and green! if i had a little girl this card is what i feel she would be dressed like lol

Well i hope you guys like what i had to offer and i would LOVE comments! I wish i got more they are always nice to read and helpful!

So its been some time since i posted last and thats because my life has been crazy! lol

When i was in the hospital my sister told me that she was giving me a trailer!! She let her brother in-law live in it and he was moving so she gave it to us. Down side her brother in-law was a total slob *yuck*. When i got out of the hospital me and my fiance stayed up at my dads in Erie while my baby was in the NICU up at
Hamot. When we finally got to come home as a family =) my fiance spent every day over at the trailer cleaning like a mad man! it took about 2 weeks or so before he would even let me come over to see it. Him and my family did a wonderful job making this place look good i guess just out of the living room they took out 23 bags of trash!!!! *nuts i know*

But we are all moved in and 90% unpacked lol and now my life is just a little nuts-oh but that's just because i have a 2 month old and he has  PT & SI coming weekly *PT comes one week SI the other*

I have lots of things i have made since my last posting i just have to find what we did with the charger for my camera so i can take and post picks!

My baby is born!!!!

Well had a hell if a week! On the 11th i went in to the hospital because my blood pressure was something/112 *very bad* spent two days there and they couldn't get my BP under control so they sent me to Magees-Womens hospital in Pittsburgh pa *about 1 1/2 hours south of where i live* talk about a long ride in the ambulance! Once in in Magees i was poked so many times lol lost count at 23 stabs. It hard to get my blood out of me.

On the 15th i started getting a pain on my right side under my ribs and a funky burp taste in my mouth. So they gave me the meds to start labor. BUT my liver had other plans. The pain was nuts i got two shots of morphine it did nothing!!! they came in and said its time to get the baby out!!!

got the epidural put in but it didn't fully work so had to be put under and my son was born at 9:09pm Feb 15th =)

I got severe pre-eclampsia and HELLP my blood platelets dropped all the way down to 40!!!!

It took 2 days before i got to meet my son. best moment of my life =)

spent few more days in the hospital because they could take the epidural out because my blood platelets didn't want to go up

But I'm home now! My son Aiden is still in Pittsburgh but tomorrow he is being moved to Erie. My dad lives in Erie so we are staying with him for the time Aiden is in the hospital *fingers crossed it wont be long* It shouldn't be long till we are all home together! he is breathing on his own and isn't on any monitors and takes a bottle every other feeding

            His binky 

such a sweet smile

     Proud daddy =)
