Pictures for DADDY!

Since daddy is away for a military training, the only communication is through phone, text, email, blog or Facebook. And since Chabella has been on a fashion craze, daddy wanted to see what all the buzz was about!
Wednesday was a pretty boring day so I decided to take the kids to walk around for a bit, thinking I will pass by Marshalls to see if I could get this dress form that I was eyeing, but walk away from thinking it will be there later. Well that was not the case since all the clearance items have all been taken away. Which made me really sad. So as we were walking out we happened to pass the kids area which is a bad bad place. They have too many cute things. So a last minute walk through at Marshalls became a shopping craze for the kids. Well for Isabella anyway!
So daddy here is the first outfit that your daughter picked out this morning to wear to school! Isabella had gotten up earlier than me, which is nothing new. She usually sits in the living room/dining/kitchen area to watch her cartoon and eat gogurt! But when I got up, she was already dress. I mean with shoes and jacket ready to go. LOL! She was soo excited to go to school to show off her new outfit. It is not fancy or brand name, but my daughter loves skirts. She is a girly girl! And she is Hannah Montana, Barbie Princess and SUPER MODEL in her own little world and we let her! If you could just see the poses she was doing last night as we got home from shopping. Well cuz you know we had to try on all the clothes again with all the new shoes right?

A close up of the skirt she just LOVES! She was jumping and twirling trying to get the skirt to move. hehehe

And these are her new fave boots right now. They are Rachel Ashwell shoes totally bling out baby! I also got her a couple more knee high boots and I am sure I will be taking pics of those tomorrow. Well see what this diva has in store for me tomorrow! Oh she tried to tie her own shoes...can you see?
Wathca think?

*My Little Shoebox* Jan. DT Assignments

For the month of Jan. we got to play with what ever previously release line we wanted. It was a FREE FOR ALL challenge for the team. This was such an awesome challenge, cuz I got to use all my scraps to create my layered flowers. You know how sometimes you cut your 12x12 paper and you end up with strips of paper. Well that's exactly what I used for my flowers and they turned out so good. And even though all the PP are from different lines they all go together so well. I used the cuddlebug to make the flowers and a layer flower sizzix die cut.
PP: Little Lady, Little Birdie, Imagine a Forest and In Bloom
Bling: Kaiser Craft

I am so excited you guys! I got an email late last night that I was not expecting at all! It was from either Melissa or Miranda (not really sure)...from It's All About Me Challenge Blog asking if I would accept a DT position. WHAT,WHAT??? I applied for the DT call but I did not expect to get picked at all. So you can imagine the surprise look on my face when I read that email. I was totally doing the happy happy joy joy song and HERCULES HERCULES clapping hands thing. If you don't know what I am talking about, then I am a bigger GEEK than I thought! Ha!

I of course wanted to share the news but I for one follow the rules. Since it was not posted on the blog yet I could not share, but thankfully they posted it today and you can see it here: And you can see the rest of the girls that stayed from the original DT, the new DT and of course Guest DT''s. So weird seeing my face on the side panel....hehehe!

Anyway, I am still trying to find my way around the site and hopefully I can soon share all the up and coming events and challenges we come up with. I am excited to meet the girls and get to know them. Find out more info and start getting to work on some stuff. I am excited and nervous! Just need to relax and get comfy, I tend to get geeky and awkward when I am unsure of myself. So wish me luck and thanks for letting me share. I am off to add the blinky on my blog and link to the site. Oy! God help me, I always forget how to do stuff like that!
