Happy birthday Doria

I want to wish my Loving Daughter, Doria a Blessed and Happy Birthday. Doria is my only child, and she's always been a great daughter. She's a mother of four, a wife and foremost a Sailor. She's been active for Thirteen years. Her birthday is on Friday the 13, of March. When she was 13 years old, it also was on a Friday the 13. This day for me has been the luckiest day in my life. When I had her, I knew that she would be the most precious gift that God could ever send me. Everyday and thank him for her. I just went to Virginia, and spent five delightful days with her and my grandchildren. Even though, two out of four were sick. I still loved every minute that I spent at her home. I made her a silhouette of her first born, as a card. I also made it into a picture for framing. I took so pictures of the girls, so that I can convert them into silhouettes also, this way she can place them all on a wall by ages. I think that she would like that very much. The silhouette came out beautiful, I didn't expect it to look so nice. I hope that she has a blessed birthday day. For I will miss being with her and that day.


From your loving mother, who holds you in her heart always. MOM

The Long Shot

I like to introduce you to one of my other Grandson. Colby, who is quite a character, if I am say so. He loves playing sports, Baseball, basketball and football. I guess he's what you call an all American. He's still young, so we don't know as of yet, what sports he'll stick to the most. I wanted to share he's basketball abilities, which he's doing very good in. He's made us all proud, specially, he's Grandfather and mother. LOL

This is his outstanding play:

I am enclosing a title that I created for his scrapbook page.

Kilroy was here!!

I found this Kilroy dings and it reminded me, when I was a litte girl, how I would see these icon, painted, scratched or penciled everywhere. Then, later in life, as I got older I found out that there were a stories about Kilroy was here!
I decided to make a Kilroy Birthday card for my brother in law for the laugh, As I posted the card, I got curious about finding out, the real reason for the Kilroy legend, so I googled. Yes, I googled, and this is the results. Please take a minute to check it out. I got a very interesting result. The legend was endless....LOL
So, check it out! Specially those who don't know the Kilroy was here, legend.
-(@ @)-
--oOO-- (_)-- OOo--
There are so many legends about kilroy, now, which one is the original legend.

GSD for already posted files

These GSD files are for the already pre-posted files, in different formats. Last night I received the GSD files, to replace the DXF format files. Like always, my blog isn't being friendly on editing my already posted blog information, but this is the only way I can make it work. By posting as new. I will be getting a silhouette cutter by QuicKutz, soon, so this re-posting and confussion will come to an end. WooHoo! For now, I will place three GSD files for you to pick from. Have fun, enjoy, and most of all, thanks for stopping by.
