AEZine Challenge

My Essential Tools . . .
Paper, Metal Ruler, Letter Stamps, Ink, Pen, Pencil, Knife, Fiskers Scissors, Scotch Glue, and of course Ali's book.



In honor of this being my first AEZine challenge I thought I would post some pics of when we met. Here I am with Ali back in September when she came to my scrapbook store here in Waco. It was so much fun. The first picture where we are talking and I am standing because I was having contractions and needed to move around to work through them. They were so irregular that I didn't think it was the real deal. I left after class barely able to walk b/c my contractions were becoming so intense. I literally had Stella an hour and 15 minutes later after my favorite photos class, at home, on the floor in the bathroom b/c we did not make it to the hospital in time.... you can read more about it on our family's blog. I definitely recommend scrapbooking while in labor. Ali, we will have to work something out the next time I am pregnant. I will definitely need to make another minibook in between contractions.

I love the new blog! Thanks for sharing it with us. I'll definitely keep up with it - I always love the projects you do at home. Pics aren't the same as being there, but they're a great reminder of dear friends.
