Guess what?!

I've been "scrapping" some more!! I can hardly believe it! It's not much, but I made an ATC for a challenge at Tally Scrapper. We were to use paint somewhere on it and to do some cut work. Here it is....

Also, as some of you will remember, I was trying to put a mini album together in an old sewing kit. Well, I totally farked the kit itself! (No. It was not fixable.) So, I just cut and scored a 3/4 inch piece of Sass Lass to use as the "spine". Here it all is....

I started working on not 1, but 2 layouts. However, I don't have pictures printed. So, right now they are ideas in progress. I am hoping to get them finished before the hubsters comes home...'cause I won't have the time to do them then! :0) By the way....8 days and a few hours left!

....I have been scrapping a little. I felt like scrapping, which has been a rarity. So, I stood at my counter and went to work....and I enjoyed it!
This is a layout I did just because.

This is the front of my art journal page I am doing. It's explained best by Rachel (TallyHo) over at TallyScrapper. So, head over there to check it out.

These are cards I did for two blog challenges. One on the Paper Popsicles blog. It is being hosted by Amy Duff! The other is on the Mosh Posh blog. It is being hosted by Estee Stone!

All that medical stuff...just ignore that. I had more bloodwork done today. It's a longer story than the last one. I'm alive. That counts for someting, right?? lol

Do you ever feel.... a worm on a hook floating around in the ocean?? Every once in awhile, a fish nibbles at you, but they end up swimming off. And you just wish the fish who wanted to eat you would come along already?

Like a migrating bird who has built it's nest in a branch, only to find the next year that the tree was cut down? And you just want to find that perfect branch again?

Beach Time/Scrapping Time

So I finished my second bunch of journaling tags for the swap Tricia is hosting at Paper Popsicles. Here they are...

I got the idea for the flowers from NikkiZ over at TallyScrapper.
Here is the link.

Bruce (my "little" brother) and I took Caleb, Joshua, and Ava to the beach yesterday. We were there for about an hour....and I forgot to sunscreen the young people and myself. Needless to say, we are sunburned. JR has the worst...mine is runner-up. Other than that, we had a fabulous time!

Joshua's Pre-K Graduation

Joshua Robert graduated from Trinity Preschool on Wednesday. My baby is growing up so fast...faster than I want. I just want him to stay little and cuddly and lovey. We registered him for Kindergarten Tuesday morning. I think I may cry just typing I didn't get many pictures because the place was a madhouse and I had 5 young people and my brother with me. Without further adieu....

I got a few other photos of the actual ceremony. But they didn't come out too well and have other young people in them.

Also, I've been doing some "scrapping"! :0) I am participating in a tag/journaling spot swap over at Paper Popsicles being hosted by the wonderful Tricia! So, I've been working on those. Here is a photo of the fugly ones I did. No worries, I'm working on new ones that are much better looking!!

BIG NEWS!!! The May Kit, Like a Box of Crayons, is up at Tally!!! For $22.99 you get all this...

Get one before they're gone...which is going to be pretty quick!!

Ohhhh, and I found this really cool new scrappy place!! Mosh Posh!! I stumbled across the site on the Scrapbook calls site.....and I'm glad I did!

Well, I suppose that is all for now! Thanks for reading! :0)

mothers day Pictures, Images and Photos

I scrapped a little!! No I don't have any I think fit the LO. But, I think it looks pretty good for my first after a few month slump! :0)

For Mother's Day, I got tulips from the and my fave perfume from the young people...and a waffle maker from my brother! :0) I'll have to take some pictures and post them later.

Have a great day!

*Update* Here are some photos of my flowers...

(BTW, I didn't edit these photos except for resizing....used my Sony Cybershot.)

Oh, and today we celebrated birthdays. Taylor turned 11 on the 6th and Traven is turning 13 tomorrow! They picked cheesecake! Traven refused to take a good photo!
