Our Newborn Baby Boy

Happy Saturday!

I was inspired to make this layout by a sketch challenge at Stuck Sketches.  (in February!)  Anyway, I obviously didn't get it posted in time.  But I love it and I want to share it with you!  See that fun star??  I cut that out freehand.  Can you tell?  lol 

This is a photo when he is one week old.  It's not the "official" one but I couldn't wait to scrap so I used this one.  I think it's adorable!

Are you guys having a good weekend??  I'm glad you took time of your weekend to stop by and look around!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Precious Baby

Hello and welcome! 

Here is my Precious Baby layout that I made.  It is of my goddaughter's new baby and her husband sleeping at the hospital right after he was born. They look exhausted don't they?  For some reason I can't get the layout to photograph very well.  Sorry.  

I fussy cut the word baby from one of the patterned papers and just had to add that rabbit embellishment because it was just too darn cute!  I left this one pretty clean and simple.

I'm glad you dropped by and checked things out today!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

You Are My Happy

Happy Monday! 

 I'm back to share this layout I made that DOESN'T have a baby on it! lol  I bet you think that I only scrap baby photos!  Well not for this layout.  This one is of my sister and her granddaughter.  I was inspired by a sketch challenge but didn't get it posted in time.  (the story of life)

I hope you are having a nice Monday.  I'm trying to get things ready for the field trip I going on with my son, Riley.  We leave for Sea World on Wednesday.  It's a fun trip and we get to spend the night in one of the exhibits.  I've gone with the 3 older kids and each trip was a blast!

Xmas Traditions

Hey friends,

Remember how I'm always forgetting to post my layouts to their appropriate challenge sites?  Well guess what?  Here's another one that I made and didn't get blogged and posted in time.  I think it is a cool layout so I'm going to share it with you here today.  

I always get my kids matching pajamas to wear Christmas Eve.  This year I kind of went a bit crazy and got some wacky ones.  They were good sports and wore them but I don't think they liked them  too much.  But don't they look cute!?

I didn't get this photographed very well...  It's really nice in person.

Thanks for dropping by today!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Scrap Society's Dark Side of Disney Crop

Hello guys!

I thought today would be a great time to post this layout I made about the last Scrap Society crop I went to with my BFF, Denise since we are going to another one today.  This crop was called Dark Side of Disney and it was so fun!!  It was a 3 day crop and there were games, decorations, costumes and prizes.  I love Scrap Society!  

I must tell you that I totally scrap lifted this layout from Denise who made one almost identical first.  Actually all of the girls copied Denise's layout! lol  

The only negative thing about this crop was that I fell spectacularly and hurt my knee, elbow and shoulder.  Most of my injuries have healed but I'm still working on that shoulder....(sad face here)  I'm a total klutz!  LOL

Hopefully nothing happens like that at this one!

Thanks for stopping and looking!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Love You to the Moon

Hi there people!

I made this layout for the March Sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  However I didn't get it posted in time.  (insert sad face here) But that doesn't mean I don't love the layout and that I wasn't super inspired by the challenge!  It just means I'm a bit    Anyway, here it is:

It's prettier in person.  Really!  The papers don't photograph well.

You and Me -Scrappy Friends Challenge

Hello there!

I must tell you that I am the WORST at getting layouts posted on my blog and then uploaded to the appropriate challenges in time! The absolute worst!  I have been having problems getting on my blog as I have mentioned before. It is a long drawn out story that you don't really want to hear believe me. I've been trying all day to get on here so I could post some layouts and I FINALLY got on! (yay me!) Anyway, the first layout I tried to post is (of course) too late.  BUT I'm excited to say that I think the Scrappy Friends challenge that I did is still OPEN!  

The sketch challenge is from Brenda at Grand Divas Creative Corner and the Bingo challenge is from Rochelle's blog, Through the Eyes of Rochelle Spears.  I completed the vertical B row - Border Punch, Green, Ink, Chipboard Shape and Twine on the bingo card.

I love how this turned out!  That photo is so sweet it's giving me a cavity! lol  I am having so much fun scrapping all these baby photos from my goddaughter!!  

Okay, I'm going to make this short and sweet so I can maybe get it added to the challenge in time!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Sketches in Thyme January 2017

Welcome to 2017!
I'm excited to be back here in 2017.  I have been having trouble logging onto my blog.  For some reason it keeps my son logged in and doesn't let me log in.  So I'm a bit behind on things.  Surprisingly today I was commenting on my friend, Denise's blog and when I tried to log onto my gmail account, it let me!  Yay!  So, I rushed back to my blog and here I am writing a post!  lol
Let's start with the new year...have any of you made any resolutions?  I made the same one I make every year...move more, eat less.  So far I'm moving more.  Not sure about the eating less though! lol I'm taking it step by step, literally!  I got the fitbit flex 2 and I've started walking 10,000 steps each day again. 
 Pretty right?
I've been doing really well so far.  My kids are helping out by encouraging me to take walks with them and I try to get in laps around my pool. (walking laps around the outside edge) (Not in the water) That sounds weird but it works for me.  However it has been chilly here in Henderson. It was 33 degrees here yesterday which made walking outside a challenge.  I did it though!! Woot!  I had my 10,000 steps done before the kids got home from school. 
How about you?  Anything exciting to share?  I would love to hear from you!
Now let me share a layout I made for the first sketch challenge this month over at Sketches in Thyme:
The paper is from the December Flavor of the Month Club kit over at The Scrap Room.  I'm obsessed with Christmas papers so I have to confess I used this same kit for my December layout for Sketches in Thyme too.
I was a bit challenged taking the photo.
You should head over to Sketches in Thyme and check out the sketch challenges there this month.  You can enter as often as you want for the one prize given away each month. 
Okay, enough from me....I heading off to walk a bit more. 
Thanks for stopping by and looking.  Until next time...happy scrapping!
