I can't believe September is here!


I am almost four weeks out of chemo treatment and it sure feels good. I am doing more and more. In fact I am leaving Friday for a much needed vacation to Myrtle Beach. I know Tropical Storm Hanna is suppose to hit the Carolina's Friday sometime but we are still heading in that direction. I can't wait to go and get away. I am taking some stamping with me. I figure we will have some rain so I might as well stamp. There are 7 other women going. This is our 14th year to do this. It is so much fun!

I am posting pictures of a baby gift I made for one of my downline who is also a very good friend. The book is a "Watch Me Grow" book. I have heard of them but never did see one so I did my own take on it. I made the book and with it is a plain white Onesie in size 12 months for the baby to have it's picture taken in at the same time every month so you can see the progress of it's growth. I made up the poem I put in the front of the book as well as the one on the onesie. There are several pictures so enjoy!
