free template #7

I wish I could say that I spent the day outside enjoying the beautiful weather, but I didn't. My kids have been sick for the last week and now I've got it. Mainly just the sniffles, watery eyes, scratchy throat, but it sucks. I'm happy to report they are both over it though. We've had some rough nights of sleep. It's hard for a pacifier dependent child to sleep to keep it in their mouth while their noses are all stuffed up. I'm excited because the weatherman says it's supposed to get up to 74 tomorrow! I'm so ready to open up the windows and let in some fresh air. I'm so sick of being in the house and we really didn't get to be outside much last year because Allison was a newborn. Come to think of it, we really didn't get out much the year before that because Andrew was a newborn. I really need to get out! Speaking of Andrew, he's gonna be two in about a month. I can't believe it really. I let daddy use the clippers yesterday. I had to put him on my lap facing me and hold his head while daddy cut it. From his screams, you would think we were trying to kill him. Poor kid, probably scarred him for life. He does look really cute though, but it made him look so much older than he is. He doesn't look like that little baby boy anymore. If I think of it tomorrow, I'll snap a pic.

I made this next template based on my cousins layout I did a while back. I just love Erica Zane's Where the Heart Blooms (available at ScrapMatters)

Here's the layout:

I'm off to check out CS3 and see if I can find a decent video tut on scrapbook related use. Right now I don't care about editing my pics, I just want to know how to make a layout. I wish I could use psp for layouts and CS3 for designing, but my poor 5 year old computer can't handle both programs. My hubby did say that the next time we have some extra cash, I get to get a new computer!! Not holding my breath though. lol. We have small children, we won't come into extra cash anytime soon. I think he's sick of me hogging this one all the time and doesn't want my "scrapping junk" on it.
