I am a blessed wife to the love of my life and a mama to two little ones! I love to read and scrapbook and spend some time playing with my camera! I am learning more about myself every day! I hope you enjoy my little world on the web!

Here we are....another week almost gone and it snuck up on me! Actually I have been dealing with traveling and sick kids. UGH....that's the worst having a sick kiddo! But all is better around here now thank goodness! I'm hoping everyone is on the mend.
I am stopping in today to share a layout I did recently! Hope you enjoy it!
I used the last Noel Mignon kit :D I had so much fun playing with papers, making the banner, the stickers and buttons and all kinds of goodies!
So last week was an Epic Failure for me! Which comes to no surprise that I do not do project life. I'm just not programmed that way! It's a nice thought in theory but I just don't do well! I like to just take pictures when the mood strikes, scrapbook and now blog about it.....oh well....maybe I'll try again later....who knows. I'm excited to see everyone who actually did participate though!
Today I am sharing some junk journal pages I did for a swap over on the two peas board. They are very plain for my taste. It was my first swap like this to participate in and I had a really hard time creatively with them. I'm not sure why....I just had a mental block and it may be because I do my pages based on an actual picture.....that's my starting point. So to create something for 9 other people with nothing in mind is kind of challenging! I will probably end up sprucing my up when they come back to me....we shall see.
These first two are for the traveling one....not really sure why I participated in this one b/c we don't travel.....I should have done the summer one....oh well.
This one is for fall....my FAVORITE time of year! And I just realized when I took this picture that tag looks very plain BUT it has 3 stripes of colored washi tape and a leaf glued on there to give it some dimension!
Hi y'all! I'm still here...sorry I haven't been posting pics from day in the life...I honestly haven't even taken very many pictures....may have to do this week again later. Anyway I'm just not feeling really great right now and I wanted to let you all know I'm here...hopefully I can get back to some normal-ness soon. :(
Sounded good anyway! Sounded like a great way to approach the new week! We are just hanging out today for a few reasons....and lil miss starts dance today! So excited! (she is anyway). My lil guy is up with me this morning and he is so cute....he goes to the window, opens the curtain and says "you see that (as he points outside) it's time to get up." He was referring to sissy....so cute!
Anyway, today is the day for the BIG .....Week in the Life with Ali Edwards and she gives some really helpful tips to help through the week! I'm super excited to do this project again, we have some changes going on in our family so it will be neat to document some of them....I almost wish this project was next week or the following....oh well...maybe I can do it again! After today this weeks posts will contain photos from the previous day and maybe some of the lists I want to include....
I thought I would share a layout with you today also.
My mom snapped this picture of me and my lil guy. We were out having some family pics with my mom and J man said cheese! I love lil snap shots and tidbits like this :D
I hope you all have a wonderful day! Make sure you make it count!
Happy Friday! Do you have any big plans? I have plans for hanging out with my kiddos! Tonight we are planning a movie night in!!!! We haven't done that in a while....Love those lil guys!
So you may have noticed I forgot my post yesterday! ACK! Sorry about that...things were hectic here yesterday morning and then I was gone all day at a friends house scrapbooking and then back home was CRAZY! So today I will post 2 pictures!!!! :D (lucky you lol)
This first one is of my girl at her birthday party! I actually used my cricut to cut out the 7 from some Bella Blvd paper. MME enamel dots...thsoe are so fun and washi tape! What project from me would be complete without washi tape!
This is a selfie with my bestie! We met at a town thats about 45 mins from each of us one day...sure wish we did that more often! Anyway-we chatted while the kids played and just caught up on life and it was wonderful. I MISS her sooooo much! :( I'm hopeful she can come soon to hang out with me! :D
In other news did you see where Ali Edwards is doing her annual Week In the Life project? Have you ever participated? I did one time and that was in 2010 and honestly the only reason I haven't done it since is b/c I didn't see the blog post for it. I'm noticing it's different every year and this morning I was catching up on the blogs I follow and it caught my eye! THANK GOODNESS! I enjoyed this project so much b/c it gave me a glimpse into what I did all week. She has giveaways each day....you should play along!!!!
I hope you enjoy your weekend! Hug someone that means something to you! :D
It is already Wednesday! Can you believe that? My days here lately are just flying by! I think I need to re-prioritize because I'm not doing everything I want to get done in a day! WOW!
Anyway-have any of you gotten to be scrappy lately? I have a few things I have started on but not finished. I'm hoping to get some scrapping done either today or tomorrow!!!! (It's my day to cook at church today so I don't know about scrapping.....have to make a cheesecake and some chili).
I do however, have a page I made a while back that is in my pile of pictures I took the other day! AND I got a new NoelMignon kit yesterday and OH MY GOODNESS! Cannot wait to dive into that!!!!! It is the Miss Nelson kit ....sorry all out of stock...I thought she had one left...but she does have some of the coordinating PL kits that would be fabulous for cards, home decor projects or to add to some scrapbooking pages! Check it out!
Ok so here is my layout for today:
Speaking of project life....this was the start of my version. I don't do PL and you can see why! This was January for us...I decided I would do a collage of our month and January was as far as I got!?! It's now September and I couldn't tell you what we did 2 days ago.....but I did attempt something different. PL or any form of it is just not for me I don't think. I have tried several different ways...maybe one day I will find a way to make it work. We shall see.
Good happy Tuesday morning to y'all! Phew! Holy Moly is it REALLY September? Where in the world has time gone? If y'all find it make sure to let me know!!!! We had a fun filled weekend with visitors, visiting, cleaning, shopping and today I am recovering! I did FINALLY manage to get some pictures, cropped and edited so I could start back to my regular posts on here! I was going through the pictures of my recent layouts and a few of them I really like and a few of them lack "something." Do you ever feel that way? At a second glance it doesn't have the look or feel of what you thought it once did? I may need to go back and change a few of them.
Anyway-well today I thought I would start you off with the silliest happiest face on the planet! (or at least I think so). This lil guy just makes my heart happy! He is so FULL of personality and keeps me on my toes and laughing on those days I didn't think I could laugh....you know what I'm talking about?
See what I mean? Full of personality! This was one of the best pictures I could get on Easter but when I went back through my camera it just made me smile. He makes this face often! I got really brave with this layout! I used stencils, sprays, inks, my cricut, a gold pen for doodling, rub ons....I mean I used a little bit of everything!!!! I also got all the supplies or most of them from I think either Noel Mignons April or May kit....
I hope you all have a wonderful day! Hopefully I my life isn't too crazy tonight and in the morning and I can blog again! :D
