One thing worse than a very sore body, feeling cold, having hot flushes, nausea, a crazy headache, terribly sore throat accompanied by a dreadful cough, and an overall feeling that you were hit by a truck......... and that thing is the realisation that your kids got the virus that just kept you wishing to stay in bed for the previous week.
I am not even 100% yet, not even close, just the thought that my little babies are going through a fraction of what I have just been through is VERY upsetting.
I know that, if you are a mom, you will relate to this: I would give anything to change places with them, I would give ANYTHING to be able to suffer through all of that again, so my kids don’t have to..... but alas… I don’t have that power.
Now I just have to put on a brave face, so they won’t see how much I am upset to see them so sick, and hope for the best...

Anyway, the banner was inspired on this layout I did for the DigiDare:

Do you think my new blog banner is too busy? I am such a clutter bug ain’t I? The banner started off as just the title in plain “stamped” alpha, but I could not resist :) opinions welcome :)

You don’t have to sign in to see the book, just click on the “View Photo Book” orange button. Let me know what you think :)
I cannot wait to have this book in my hands; one other reason for doing it is to test out how those many different kits print :) Oh I love Shutterfly!

so yeah, I have disappeared...no, not really, I never meant to be a hardcore blogger :) so once a week is plenty! but still, since someone asked where the hell was I :) here I am LOL
I have been working crazy to try and get an album done by the 15th. It is Mateus first year album and it is all double pages of each month, lots of fun and lots of work and I have very little time to finish it. Here is what I have done so far:

I got a bit more praise these last few weeks:
- Page of the day at Creating Keepsakes (that was awesome!!!)
- Susan’s favourite layout at the Lifts with a Twist for last week’s lift.
ah man, just over the moon with those.. but the best was yet to come:
The first Brazilian blog… yeah! Do you remember me tooting I won a kit by Lisa Whitney for a challenge at the Scrapblog? Well, looks like the girls really like my stuff because… I WAS INVITED TO JOIN THE CREW… wow wow how cool is that? I mean, that is going to be loads and loads of fun because those girls are just so nice and so talented. Also, now I have an excuse to write in Portuguese, and if you like scrapbooking but dont like my ramblings in english you can check stuff there hehehe :)
and now onto a little enabling:
Funky Free by Amy Marty and Dani Mogstad

Ok, Lucas has been growing like crazy, this week he decided he didn’t want to be toothless anymore, I think it was the layout I did about loving his gummy smile, so his first tooth came out LOL Off course now I am freaking out about nursing him and getting bitten haha, hope it doesn’t happen because we offer him the bottle almost every day and he is still not keen, but if he bits me he will have no option LOL
Also!!!! He is crawling!!! We picked up on video, how exciting, you will have to wait to see it when I upload, crawling pictures are boring, you can’t see the action, but maybe I will get a layout done soon :)
And last but not least… I QUIT WORK.. well, not really but yeah, I just asked for eight months leave. It was a hard decision. Hubby got a new job and can’t leave early for me to work anymore. Childcare for both kids is so expensive it is not worth for me to work... well, I hope it all works out when Mateus starts school next year. At least I get more time to scrap (pfft yeah sure)
Hope you had a great weekend, I am off to bed, scrapping news on Monday :) (if I get the time to blog hehehe)
But before I go, some eye candy:
(just had to get some scrapping on this post LOL)
