Busy Times

Hey all! I don't have any pictures to share today.  It's been a crazy couple of days for sure! I have an album order I have got to get busy on! I have my own scrapping projects I want to work on, two small kiddos to take care of who seem to think they need to be fed on a regular basis! And my normal wifely duties. I intend to find some crafting time for sure today though! i hear lil man crying now...so I just wanted to share really quickly I have become a blog follower of samantha over at scrapmast paradise.  She is wonderful with her creating abilities! I LOVE her projects...she is a stampin up demonstrator...I'll add that link later!  Anyway she is having a design team call at scrapmaster paradise so check it out! :) I am way EXCITED to get to know her better and the others who are joining the forum! Have a great day and I gotta get my lil man before he thinks I ran away...which by the way is tempting! (hahah..just kidding.)

Week in the Life 2010: Final Project

After finally getting my pictures yesterday I got to finish up my pages, pictures and embellishments today.  I did not do the same layout/book as the FABULOUS ali edwards but I took the idea and made it my own this time around.  Mainly b/c I have not had a lot of time to scrap lately so this was a great catapult to get me on board!  It got me thinking creatively and got me to use one of my monthly kits that I hadn't even opened yet! Ha! All I have to do now is put it in an album which I am fresh out of so that's next on my list hopefully tomorrow! Here are the pictures and I hope you all enjoy a glimpse into my life!

This is my first page which is not a particular day...just my family and about the project itself.




Thursday was the BEST!


Saturday was all about lounging!

Sunday! :)

A day to blog

  • Hi everyone! I don't have any pictures to add today b/c I have made some submissions for things that I'm not sure I can post yet and some projects I've made for mothers day! So I obviously cannot post those.  I have been working on my week in the life project still and I FINALLY got my pictures today so I intend to work on the project either tonight or in the morning.  We'll see after I'm done on the web!  I also am trying to get my scrapbooking business up and running...how that works is I am making scrapbooks for people who either do not like the hobby or don't have time but like the idea of a scrapbook.  I have 6 orders pending...one of which I have the pictures for.  Let me tell you this is a process. I picked the pictures up and started sorting through them and picking out the ones I think I might use.  This has been a great idea for me....I get to do my favorite hobby of all time for extra money and it gives me a reason to get my stuff out everyday! :)  So if you are interested or know of someone who is.....please refer me.  I'm mainly just servicing the people at my church and my friends around the country....b/c I know of a few others who do this service to make money too! It's been great b/c I've just been sending people I know here to my blog to look at my work! Awesome! I hope you all have a great night and hopefully I'll have some new pics to post tomorrow!

Nice Day

It's amazing to me how one day mother nature can be so destructive and the next it is absolutely gorgeous outside! I plan to let Savannah spend the day mostly outside today.  I on the other hand am an indoor-sy kinda girl.  Which is ok b/c I have some scrapbooking projects I want to work on for design team calls and such! Yay! So exciting. I'm going to keep working on my week in the life project, speaking of that I checked on my pics today and they are supposed to be here tomorrow.  That's great news!

Today I also started something new...working out! Before 8am I have managed to blog hop and get some amazing inspiration for today, workout, feed the baby and change him and now he's back down for a nap, check and answer emails and have a peach smoothie for breakfast! My new goal for this next year between birthdays is not only to get some experience on a design team and challenge myself creatively but to lose 90lbs! What a quest! I'll let you know in a year how I did and progress along the way!

Enough blogging for now....I wanna work on something for Gallery Idol over at paper crafts magazine.  But to leave you for the day here is some more of my work!

These pics were taking mothers day 2009! Love the layout

This picture was taken on Garretts birthday...Sept 2008...znc i outlined the swirls with stickles...a lot of work but I am happy with the way it turned out.

This was Savannahs school picture fall of 2008!

These pics were of Savannah on halloween of 2008...she was fifi the poodle and she was so adorable! :)

Crazy Few days/Design Team Call! :)

WOW! It's been a crazy few days around here.  We have been dodging tornadoes since Friday afternoon.  Thank goodness the bad weather is over with for the weekend....now just prayin for the folks in TN!  Anyway I thought I would just post some of the work I've done!  I am trying out for the design team at noelmignon...YAY I'm soooooooooooo EXCITED! I hope that my designing is up to par for her! I was just thinking last week I wonder when she will be having a DT call and what do you know! Yesterday....on my birthday....I discovered she is holding one through May 15th! OMGosh....I can hardly contain my excitement! I have never been on a design team before but would LOVE to get the experience! 

I also FINALLY started working on the pages for my week in the life project while I am waiting on my pictures, however I got interrupted last night because of tornadoes.  I have become a "kit hoarder" and decided to use a kit I had purchased and not used yet to do this album! Especially since I have a new kit in the mail! Ha!

Anyway here are some fun layouts I've done! Enjoy! Leave a comment and tell me what you think....and send your friends here to follow my blog to see if I make it to the design team!:)

This is a layout of my baby shower! Love you Amy and Kandy!

This was taken the day we brought baby jackson home and I LOVE this layout!

Jackson was just over a week old here and I had fun putting this LO together and putting the buttons on the polka dots! :)

This LO was just fun...all the bright vibrant colors! This was our first sunday back to church and our first official family photo!
