Blossom Layout


Well it's the end of another week....thank goodness. I am so ready for the weekend you have no idea! I have been following scrapbooking websites and blogs like crazy! I'm so excited though and my creative juices are flowing. Savannah is staying with her memaw and papaw tonight and so I have lots of free time to scrap.....but i'm just too exhausted. Ugh....I wish I had tons of energy. I did manage to create this one layout and submit it in a challenge in hopes of being picked as the layout of the week. It's probably not my best but I LOVE it....I have been dying to use this new paper I got from imaginisce and the embellisments. The first sign of a spring day savannah and I jumped at the chance to spend a few hours at the park. I took full advantage with my camera and tonight with my scrap supplies. Maybe I'll get lucky and win something eventually!

All Girl


So, scrapbooking has become my life which is amazing! I am a member of a website that poses a weekly challenge and if your layout is picked then you get a "store" credit to spend. YAY! It's sort of like getting paid for scrapbooking which is now my new goal! So I did this layout last night while watching Cars with Savannah. Hopefully I can get it uploaded! Ha! Anyway the challenge was to create a page that was girlie...I think I got it down! It's really awesome that I can go to a website and there is my page and I already have one comment from a girl on there! I'm so excited! Hope all have a wonderful day!

Vanilla Creamer

It has been a while since my last post. Sorry! Anyway, we have been busy around here the last few weeks. First, we were preparing for what turned out to be an AMAZING marriage retreat. If you are married, single, engaged whatever...it is good for all walks of life and I would highly recommend it for anyone. Ours was by Dr. Gary Chapman. Again, amazing. We are planning to go every year that our church has one.

This last week has been kinda a bummer b/c savannah and I both have been ill. We went to the doc on wednesday.....nothing too too bad....tonsilitis. Ugh. We can't seem to get well so I finally decided I would start vitamins. They make me sick whenever I take them no matter what time of day. However, I have started taking them with breakfast and things seem to be ok. I need to be taking them anyway so when we're ready to add another addition to our family I'll be good to go in that area! Ha!

Scrapbooking has been ruling my life. But I LOVE it. I'm trying to find a way to maybe get on with a design team somewhere and help design some stuff. I'm not THE most creative but I hear from others around me that I am pretty creative. So if any of you have any suggestions I'm all ears. I went to a class this past saturday and it was a baby layout...talkout about making you want a new baby!!!!! Plus it was the most adorable layout ever...it was fairly simple but LOTS of tideous work. Turned out awesome!

A new thing I have discoverd over the past couple of weeks is VANILLA CREAMER! Holy cow! I drink more coffee in the mornings now! My mother in law just happened to leave a small container of vanilla creamer and I decided to try it....I like it better than all the othe crap I used to put in my coffee. I'm willing to say that it's the best thing since chocolate! So if you like flavored coffee...it's my suggestion!
