ScrapMatters Birthday Blog Train

Hi everyone! Welcome to my stop on the ScrapMatters Birthday Blog Train! You have arrived from Plum Dumpling Designs.

I love birthdays, and each one is special in it’s own way. But one especially memorable birthday for me, was my son’s 8th birthday. He chose to have an “Echo Age” Birthday. Their premise is One Meaningful Cause, One Meaningful Gift. My mom had just been diagnosed with cancer and it was definitely on all of our minds, including my son’s. He chose to donate half of his birthday money to Camp Ooch, a camp for children with cancer.  I was so proud of him for choosing to do that at such a young age. My mom was in tears when she heard who he had donated to. It was such a special birthday. We had a big party for him and for his One Meaningful Gift, he got a new bike:

And here is your freebie made with Cupcakes and Candles which is free with a $20 purchase (Aug 6-12) from the ScrapMatters store!

Your next stop on the train is: Lori Bear

Be sure to check out all the fun birthday celebrations at ScrapMatters! Here is a master list of the festivities for you:


Have a great weekend everyone!

Moments That Matter – the ScrapMatters iNSD Blog Train!!

Hi everyone!! Welcome to the next stop on the ScrapMatters [inter]National Scrapbooking Day blog train. This train has stops ALL OVER THE WORLD!!! You have probably just come from Courtney (aka cnscraps) blog.  That's the stop before this one. And now you've arrived in Ontario, Canada at my (canadianmommy) blog!

Our NSD mega-collab at SM this weekend is called "Moments that Matter" and the whole theme of our celebration is all about those moments in our lives that really matter. At each stop you'll find a story about a Moment that Matters along with a freebie!! There are TONS of stops on this blog train, so you can pick up a LOT of goodies!!

The 'moment that matters' I've chosen to share is . . . the birth of our first child!

My husband and I had pretty charmed life you could say. We met in high school. Went away to college together. Got married a couple of months after graduation. A year later we decided to start our family and two months later we were expecting. After a very healthy and stress-free pregnancy, our son Ben was born on June 24, 2001.  Until this point I don’t think I had ever had a single worry. Not a real worry anyway. Well this is the point that life as we knew it, changed.

I had a really long labour that ended up in an emergency c-section. There were complications during the c-section and things got pretty scary. By the end of it all I was just so worried about him. I remember thinking that  I didn’t care what I had to go through or what had to be done. I just wanted him safely in my arms.

He finally got there, in my arms.  Everything that happened before that moment was completely worth it after seeing his perfect little face. But to be honest, the worry has never left me. Since that day, I worry constantly. Is he eating enough?  Is he sleeping enough? What if he falls? Will he be okay at school?  He’s playing outside and I can’t see him! Ack! I was starting to feel completely neurotic and then I read this quote:

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone

There is so much truth in that!  I now know that the worry will always be there. My life has changed, I have children. I will always worry about them. I will probably never have a moment’s peace again.  But it is and always will be worth it.

So here is my photo, of the moment my heart started to forevermore, “walk around outside my body”.


(Don’t laugh at the messy hair and exhausted face! LOL)

And now for your freebie!  Using Moments That Matter by the ScrapMatters Design Team (free with a $20 purchase during iNSD):


*Link removed*

Hope you like it!  Link will be active until midnight Thursday night 5/6. Then all these blog train goodies are getting gathered up and put into the store! 

And now you're off to the next stop on the blog train . . .
