Gabrielle is HERE

The Birth of a new Family
Please meet Baby GABRIELLE - daughter of Tania Quevillon

It is with great pleasure, that I am announcing the birth of Gabrielle Quevillon-Cyr, this wonderful little girl was born on Sunday– February 18th, 2007 @ 12:24am. She weighed 7lbs-8-1/2oz (3.570kg). She looks a lot like her Daddy. However, she has her mother's hands/fingers. No doubt she’ll be a future scrapbooker. The family, Dad, Mom and Baby are all doing great.

I meet her for the first time today, Mom is very happy and Dad is a wonderful helper, the three were very calm and bonding, a wonderful thing to see. She hasn’t cry yet…. Perhaps her true CYR character will come out once they are in the privacy of their own home. More stories and news will follow.

La naissance d'une nouvelle famille
Voici bébé GABRIELLE - petite fille de votre amie Tania Quevillon

C'est avec grands plaisirs que je vous annonce la naissance de Gabrielle Quevillon-Cyr, cette petite fille merveilleuse est née dimanche le 18 février 2007 @ 24:24. Elle pesait 7lbs-8-1/2oz (3.570kg). Elle ressemble beaucoup à son papa. Cependant, elle a les mains/doigts de sa mère. Aucun doute qu’elle sera une future scrapbookeuse. Tous la famille, papa, maman et bébé vont bien.
J’ai eu le grand plaisir de faire sa connaissance aujourd’hui, maman est très contente et papa aide beaucoup, les trois sont très calme et heureux. Elle n’a pas encore pleuré…. Peut-être qu’elle garde son p’tit caractère de CYR pour la maison. Histoire et nouvelle à suivre.

Border Quote - Simple Pleasures

I found this great book " Embellished EMOTIONS for Scrapbookers" and knew just what picture to use. This page was done using CTMH Simple Pleasures paper packet and stickeases. Jade was 4 year old and not wanting to stand still for one more picture.

An Invitation To Share!

OK, all you creative Blackburn Scrappers! It's time to share! Whether it's a scrapbook page, a card, an altered project or ANYTHING scrapping/stamping related, I invite you to share with the group!
Either scan the project or upload a picture of the project to your computer. Then start a new post on the blog. You will see a tool bar above your message space...the last icon is a on this and it will allow you to add an image from your computer. It's that easy! Once the picture is loaded, press "done" and continue writing in your message space. Once you have finished, you can either "save as draft" or "publish". NOTE: you are still able to edit your posts even after you publish it.
OK, so I'm anxious to see what you ladies can do!

The "Whisks"!

A few of you asked me to share the whisk idea I made at Christmas. This idea could be modified for any theme, really..."Whisking you a sweet Valentine's Day", "Whisking you a SPOOKY Halloween" etc...The tag on this whisk says "We "whisk" you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"
The whisk is from the dollar store. Place the whisk in a plastic bag (I got mine from SU, but I'm sure you could get them at Dollar Store or Bulk Barn) as this will help keep the chocolates from falling out. Then put the chocolates (or candies) in the whisk. Use a twistie to close the bag. Make your tag (I printed my sentiment on the computer, matted it on red card stock, used a corner punch to decorate the edges and stanped images to decorate the tag). Punch 2 holes in the tag, insert ribbon, and tie around the whisk. Easy, no?
