Hello all,

Gavin, Harper, Josie, and I are all getting established at our new abode.  It is quite large, and there is plenty to do around the house, but I was able to muster up some time and energy to actually scrap this weekend. 

At my 36 week check up last Tuesday the CNMW announced that I was 2 CM dilated and had a soft cervix.  I thought, yay I'm about to have this baby, but here I am another week further (37 tomorrow), and still no little guy.  That's ok though.

This weekend was so lovely.  Saturday morning my mom and I attended the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington, TX.  I love attending this each year because this is where I stock up on cheap embellishments, lovely papers, and other goodies.  My sweet mom was so generous to buy things for me too.  She is such a doting mother.

Some of the goodies that I came home with are a subscription to Scrapbook Trends magazine for $7 per issue and 2 free magazines. An awesomely large fiskars cutting mat, new fiskars rotary blade trimmer, tons of beautiful paper, lots of sweet embellies from Melissa Frances, Basic Grey, Jenni Bowlin, and other off brand companies, some cat eye chalk inks, a new uniball signo pen, a pack of white Bazzill, and some colored Bazzill cardstock.  Not to mention all the freebies that I tried to win, etc.  It was a lot of walking, and I was eager to get home and put my feet up after all that!!

That evening my sweet hubby took me out on the town.  We saw What to Expect When You're Expecting, which was such a fabulous film.  I will be buying this one; it was way too adorable!! I laughed, I cried, and I peed my pants :) yes! LOL it was that funny. If you've seen this movie, you totally know what I talking about.

That evening I got down to business in my scrap space, used my new papers with old papers, and I used my silhouette machine for the 2nd time since I got it back in December.  I am so glad that I did too because it's PURE brilliance!! Best scrappy investment I've made.

Sunday I got scrappy again doing two page layout for my daughter's 3rd birthday.  Harper came home that afternoon from spending the night with my mom (her Lita), and she proceeded to take a nap with her daddy giving me even more quiet, creative time in my little scrap retreat at home.  I love my new scrap room.

Today I am back at work and will be leaving shortly to sign papers on my home. I'm looking forward to be a homeowner once again, and no longer a squatter :) lol. 

And one more thing, to share a few photos from my Little Gentleman themed baby shower for Sawyer James.  My little mister will be here any day now, and I CAN'T wait to meet him and hold him and nurse him, and scrapbook when I'm on maternity leave, lol. I have CRAFTING on the mind all summer long!!

With Love,

Gabrielle Watson
