Today is my best friend’s birthday :) Here are a couple of layouts I created for her:

Here is the announcement in their blog: http://www.scrapbookgraphics.com/wordpress/?p=1078
The layout was the one I created to talk about my weight :) I posted it here a few days back.
The prize is a Epson StoryTeller Photo Book Kit.

On the same day I got picked by Melissa as layout of the day here for this layout:
It is the second time I get featured at Digi Pick of the Day, first time it was for this layout I did for the Lifts with a Twist blog:
I love the Lifts with a Twist Blog, probably cause I love how a lift can turn into something completely different. I also got highlighted there (here) for another version of the above layout.
I post all my layouts on the Designer Digitals gallery, and also try to do as many challenges I can, so I got my layouts to appear in their blog a couple of times:
Ah, and I got a free kit from Jackie Eckles when I did this layout for her Font Challenge:
Ok, this post is getting too long and I am not meaning to brag about myself but, in one month, that is a lot of praise and I am soooooooooooo happy for it I wanted to share :) The challenges are great and I really feel I am improving after each layout! So, keep them coming!
Lastly, thank you to everyone that take time to leave comments on my layouts. It really keeps me going :) You are all too kind! Love the digi-scrapping community!
I am so glad I have found scrapbooking, even happier to have found digi-scrapping. I mean, when I was playing World of Warcraft I had lots of fun, but at the end of 3 hours I had nothing to show for it. How frustrating is that? I feel I was wasting my time. I am sorry to all my friends that play, the main objective is entertainment so it doesn’t really matter if you have something to show at the end of it, right? Well, I thought it did matter to me :)
Para felicidade geral da família (mamãe e sogrinha), eu cancelei minha conta de World of Warcraft. Acabou o “joguinho de computador” viu? Podem ficar felizes :) Agora vcs vão ter que aguentar o moooooonte de páginas de Scrapbook que eu vou criar no tempo que eu estaria jogando :)

I just *had* to buy new clothes. Going back to work I finally realised I didn’t have one pair of pants that fit me, kinda cool if I wasn’t so broke LOL But I did buy 3 new pairs, so I am good for a while now.
So, I finally got around to scrap before and after shots of my "weight loss":

Lucas is blowing raspberries all the time. He likes playing with his feet. He smiles when he catches you looking at him. He loves watching his big brother. All these really sweet things just melt my heart.Lucas started solids two weeks ago and already has difficult appetite, just like his brother and dad. He will only eat what he feels like. Even nursing is a bit of a fight now; he doesn’t really want it during the day. He likes to nurse at night though. Lucas has big stretches of sleep just after 8PM, but from around midnight he wakes up every 3 hours for a feed. He loves to sleep on his back, he used to only sleep on his tummy but now he turns on his back and is happy. Lucas is on all fours all time, ready to crawl, but not quite there. He will drag himself around though, not quite sure how he does it but when I look again he moved somewhere else :)
Today I remembered how we had a PARTY for Mateus’ six months. Oh dear, celebrations yesterday stopped at hugs and smile :) We took Mateus to see Spiderman. Lucas got some daddy time while I was with Mateus at the movies for the first time. Spiderman 3 wasn’t a clever choice for a three year old, because it took too long, but he looooooooooves Spiderman so I had to take him. So, back to Lucas, today I felt bad for him and decided he needed a “birthday” present. I bought him a walker. I have been thinking about it and thought we could not afford one at the moment, but he deserves it, he never gets anything because he already has all of Mateus’ “old stuff”. So I went and bought the cheapest one I could find, and still it was one of my favourite ones (I always buy Pooh Bear stuff for the kids hehehe) When he saw it he squeeled and giggled and was jumping off my lap to get to it. He loves it so much! (he loved the one at childcare so I knew what I was doing LOL) Here it is:
That is it for me :) Have a great week everyone.

Bom demais né? Mal posso esperar por mais fonts dela :)

So, still don’t quite know what to do with myself! Stop working? Work part time? Should Alex watch the kids? Should I just find another childcare (they are all full though). I was told today that working from home is not an option on my current job. They can’t support it. However, they will make pretty much any other deal. One suggestion was to just work one “night” a week from 3PM to 7PM. Maybe if Alex was home with the kids I wouldn’t feel so bad about leaving them, and maybe we could finally save some money. I might go with two nights to make it worth my while. Decisions…
I started a time capsule album, here is the "family" layout:
I want to print this one to put in my new frame *wink wink*

I got a frame for my favorite scrapbook layouts:
And with the frame, I got a gorgeous layout made by Alex himself!
Alex said he has nothing to do with this one LOL
I also went on a shopping spree at Designer Digitals and Scrapartist, and can’t wait for the Shabby Princess’ shop anniversary celebrations.
Oh, talking about scrapbooking, during National Scrapbooking Day last weekend, I participated on the Designer Digitals all day chat! Got lots of Freebies but the coolest is that I got a subscription for Digital Scrapbooking for freeeee. Thanks to Jen Donelly :)
Ah, the *almost* remark was because the kids are sick, but not too bad! Just a cold! Hope they get well soon.
I did some cool layouts for my mom and mother in law (I think they are cool at least)
Happy mothers' day everyone :)

Primeiro dia de volta ao trabalho hoje. Foi difícil, fiquei preocupada com o Lucas e com muita saudade. Que eu saiba ele ficou muito bem na creche, comeu, dormiu, nem sentiu minha falta. Fui lá 10AM, 1PM e 4PM pra dar o peito. Estou suuuuper cansada pela correria. Mas, no final das contas, amei estar de volta e ver todas as pessoas do serviço. Foi legal ouvir como todo mundo sentiu a minha falta. Só não foi legal ver a bagunça que as coisas estão. Hahaha isso eu não posso escrever em inglês se não eles vão ver. Mas tava tudo uma zona, muita coisa pra consertar, parece que a parte administrativa do que eu faço ficou parada desde quando eu fui embora... mas é bom, assim vou ter o que fazer e não vou ficar pensando nas crianças o tempo todo. Fotos mais tarde :)

Ok, sete coisas que ninguém sabe sobre mim... não existem. Alguém, em algum lugar já me ouviu falando de alguma coisa da lista. Mas aí vai:
1. Quando tem uma comida que eu gosto em casa, não consigo parar de comer até acabar (o segredo é não ter a comida hahaha)
2. Adoro jogos de computador e perco a idéia de tempo quando estou jogando.
3. Eu dou mais valor ao que os outros pensam do que minha própria opnião.
4. Passei de ano raspando todos os anos até chegar na faculdade, onde virei um dos melhores alunos.
5. Eu *também* gosto de Heavy Metal (hoje em dia tenho gosto mais variado)
6. Não gosto de batom nem de salto alto :(
7. Às vezes pago pra ficar em casa do que fazer qualquer coisa na rua.
Não conheço muita gente com blog que escreve em português :(

Pictures of Lucas at childcare yesterday:
Ok, obviously he was doing much better than me!!! He was happy and smiling and playing! He normally is a bit hard to settle to sleep in the afternoon, well, there I put him down and he just closed his eyes and slept. Crazy! I am back to work two days a week next week and he will stay there the whole day, so I hope he continues to enjoy it.
Fotos do Lucas na creche. Olha só que felicidade! Ele dá o maior trabalho pra domir em casa e lá na creche eu coloquei ele no berço e ele simplesmemte fechou o olho e dormiu... fiquei lá, boba, olhando pra ele. A única coisa que me preocupou é que ele ficou com fome antes da hora. Mas acho que ele vai acostumar a mamar nos horários certos e esse final de semana vou tentar dar alguma comidinha pra ele.
Três albums novos no site:
Tidbinbilla Extravaganza (um final de semana na Reserva Tidbinbilla)
Fotos antigas: fotos que escaneei pra minha mãe (coloquei no site pra ela me dizer o que é o que nas fotos)
Fotos profissionais: as fotos de estúdio que tiramos outro dia.
