Father and daugther dance 2010

My husband was finally able to take Isabella to a Father and daughter dance this year. Boy was she excited! Here she was with her hair and make up done. I did it of course. I went to You Tube and watched a couple of HOW TO videos on up-dos. I already had a plan but decided to with this. It was really cute on her and she loved getting ready.

Her dress came with a matching mini dress for a doll. But she wanted it on teddy so that's what we did. Here she was just dying to get into her dress.

Of course we had to take a couple of shots of her and her dress outside before going to the dance. With teddy of course!

We really wanted he to feel special so of course, flowers were in order. Just look at her face. She was so surprise. She just loved all the attention daddy was giving her. She was giddy all day and all night!

She was saying "Thank you for my flowers Daddy!" He adores her.

Proud DADDY!
OMG, I was so happy I found a perfectly matching tie that goes with her dress. It came out so perfect. I am SOOOO good like that! hehehe

It was so funny, my hubby asked her where would she like to go for dinner. And her answer was..."McDonalds please!" We just about died. You see we don't take them to McDees cuz they are just not that healthy. But she knew this was her chance and boy did she take it. And of course, Daddy had to do what she ask. It was her day after all.
Can you see how happy she was and look at my husband's face! Too funny.
This was her right after the dance. She wanted to put her flowers in a vase ASAP and she knew exactly where they would go. She said, "I knew that's what my room needed. It needed flowers! Now it's perfect!" Bwahahahahaha

We really wanted this to be a GREAT experience for her and let her know how special she is. One day she will be a woman and she needs to know how she needs to be treated and the kind of care and love she deserves. We want her to grow up to be a strong and a smart girl that knows her worth. Of course you can never fully control or decide for them or how they should live their lives or who to be with. But what we could do is show her and lead her until that day comes that she decides for herself. And hopefully she makes good decisions for her life.

I thank God that I have a wonderful husband that is willing to do what ever it takes to make our daughter and son feel good and feel special. He loves and adores them. They grow up so fast and we take full advantage of these moments because one day this will be but a distant memory. But for now we will enjoy them as much as we can!

this LO? Well I submitted it to Basic Grey Gallery and they accepted it. Woo hoo!
I know, I know! But dang it, it's those small unexpected gifts that I love the most. And it might not be a big deal to most but I must admit it made me smile and feel good about my scrappy pages. So there! Hehehehe just thought I'd share. Now I have to sort through my scrappy pages that I made to see if there's other pages or project they would want.
I mean seriously, I have been hoarding so much of their stuff I am surprise I don't have more pages. Oh, yeah! I forgot...I am a freak and have a hard time cutting up paper or using up products that I love. And then I turn around and there are so many new products I must have and what I have is now considered old and not cool (like myself) hehehehe. I am really trying hard to change this and as you can see I have been working hard creating from my old stash.
Oh, scrappy news! I tried out for a handful of Design Team Calls and I am waiting to see the results. It should be within the next couple of weeks. People....WISH ME LUCK! Sooooo fun! It is fun, even though it might be a hard blow to my ego 99% of the time. But I do enjoy it. It's the excitement of "WHAT IF'S?" I think as long as it does not stop you from enjoying scrapping and it does not make you CRAZY, it's ok to try out for teams. Being in teams should be a BONUS not a MUST HAVE or I WILL DIE if I don't make it kinda thing! You know what I mean?
OK gotta stop blabbing and eat my lunch. Have a good day everyone!

It's official...

I am now a Design Team Member for Creative Charms. They posted it on their Facebook account here. I actually forgot about the call until I opened up my email this morning. Apparently they sent out the email request last night but I just didn't see it or get it until this morning.

So, yeah! I am shock and happy and excited and giddy! I am just always grateful that someone out there like my work enough and trust me to be a part of their team and to represent their company. I will never ever take those kind of things for granted. It's a privilege and a complement for people or companies to want you to be a part of their team. So awesome, thank you so much CC!

Congrats to all the girls and looking forward to getting to know and working with ya'll! Have a great day!
