Now it's time for the  

October 2018 Song Inspiration/Word or Phrase Challenge:

ADD MONTHLY BOX

The song for October is:

 "You're Gonna Miss This by Trace Adkins"

She was staring out the window of that SUV
Complaining, saying "I can't wait to turn eighteen"
She said "I'll make my own money, and I'll make my own rules"
Momma put the car in park out there in front of the school
She kissed her head and said "I was just like you"
You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
Before she knows it she's a brand new bride
In her one-bedroom apartment, and her daddy stops by
He tells her "It's a nice place"
She says "It'll do for now"
Starts talking about babies and buying a house
Daddy shakes his head and says "Baby, just slow down"
You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
I You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fasth
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
Five years later there's a plumber workin' on the water heater
Dog's barkin', phone's ringin'
One kid's cryin', one kid's screamin'
She keeps apologizin'
He says "They don't bother me
I've got two babies of my own
One's thirty six, one's twenty three
Huh, it's hard to believe, but
You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
You're gonna' miss this
Yeah
You're gonna' miss this

Making Memories with my Friends

Welcome friends!

Ready for another layout from yours truly??  I made a double page layout which I rarely do unless it's for a class or a challenge.  


The photos on this double page layout are from The ScrapRoom crop that I went to with my friends in February here in Henderson, Nevada.

I'm a little slow to scrap the photos but the crop itself was da bomb!!  lol  I can't wait until February 16, 2019 when they host their next crop!  They are getting ready to open it up for purchase if you are interested in going.  

I'm so happy you stopped by today!  Until next time...happy scrapping!!

Choose Joy

Happy Wednesday!

I made a layout using leftover scraps from one of my page kits from the Flavors of the Month kit from The Scraproom.


The photo is a fun selfie I took with 2 of my kids and my goddaughter's kid.  We were out eating dinner at a local Thai restaurant and decided selfies would be a fun way to pass the time and keep the little kids calm.  lol

While you are here I will ask you if you have participated in this months Scrappy Friends Challenge here on my blog??  You still have time to join in and be in the running to win a prize!!  Check it out HERE.

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Throw Back Thursday Challenge

Hello Friends!

I have a layout to share today.  I was inspired by the Throw-Back Thursday challenge over at The ScrapRoom.  It was last months challenge and I did it last month but just got around to photographing it.  I'm late as usual! (eye roll)

I used photos from the vacation that my husband and I took this summer to St. Croix.


That is the view from our condo and a selfie from when we first landed and were on the tarmac at the airport.

I'm glad you were able to stop by and check out my layout today.  Have you joined in on my September Scrappy Friends Challenge yet?!?  If not, go check it out HERE!

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Beauty in Bloom

I'm back yet again today.  Didn't mean to but accidentally put in the wrong date to publish...so....here you go.

Here's a layout I made of my beautiful daughter.  She always has a happy smile to share. I want her to always have this happy smile.


I just love to scrap!  I love documenting memories and just being creative.  

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

Sweet Honey

Welcome to my blog!

I'm back again today with a double page layout I made for a class I'm taking at Scrapbook and Cards Today.  


I recently got a new Giant Schnauzer puppy so I have about a million photos of her on my camera to scrap.  Here are just a few of them! LOL  

I was inspired to add myself on the layout by the challenge this month at Challenge YOUrself.


Thanks for looking today.  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Stacy

Maybe...Maybe Not

Hello people!

Welcome to my blog today.  I have a layout that I made that I want to share.  I made this layout using the September Jump Start Challenge over at The ScrapRoom.


The photos are funny because we had entered to win a shopping spree at our local scrapbook store. In the first photo we were excited to hear who won but then in the second photo we learned that we hadn't won.  We didn't expect to win but you never know...right?

You should go check out this challenge HERE.

Thanks for stopping and looking!

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Hi guys!  

Here's a layout I made for the September Blend-a-Sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash.

I love the bright happy colors of this paper collection and I love the people in the photo!!  So that makes this layout just about perfect! (wink, wink)

Now you should go check out this challenge over at Scrap Our Stash!

Silly Girls

Hello there!

Here's my August take from the class I'm taking at Scrapbook and Cards Today.


I don't think the photo I took is doing it any justice.  I really like how it turned out and I LOVE this paper collection that I used!  It's just so pretty!

My youngest and I were being silly taking selfies.  I always think that these kind of photos can be some of the best to scrap since you are getting a little snapshot of life right now.

I really am enjoying taking this class along with my friend, Rochelle.  It's good to have someone that you are kind of accountable to so that you get that project made!  (smile)

Have you checked out my Scrappy Friends Challenge yet his month?  Look up in the upper right hand corner, then click on the box.  I would be thrilled if you joined in!!  There's a fun prize for a random lucky winner!!

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

All American Family


Welcome Friends!

I've been taking a class at Scrapbook and Cards today and wanted to share my July take on the double page layout.

It's a bit odd to have photos from the 4th of July posting in September but if you follow me at all you know I'm a bit slow to post so.....(wink, wink)


I really like how it turned out!  And I thought the title was perfect as it shows me and 4 of my kids along with my good friend. (who everyone probably thinks is their mother since she's Asian and I'm not.  LOL)

My husband always stays home with our youngest who does not like to go to see or hear the fireworks.  And my friend, who I've know since I was 15, always goes with us.

Now go check out my newest Scrappy Friends Challenge!! (it's in the upper right hand corner) I would love for you to participate! You might win my prize!  Thanks for looking!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing
As we danced in the night
Remember how the stars stole the night away

Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

Ba duda, ba duda, ba duda, badu
Ba duda, badu, ba duda, badu
Ba duda, badu, ba duda

My thoughts are with you
Holding hands with your heart to see you
Only blue talk and love
Remember how we knew love was here to stay

Now December found the love we shared in September
Only blue talk and love
Remember the true love we share today

Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

There was a
Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - golden dreams were shiny days

The bell was ringing, aha
Our souls were singing
Do you remember
Never a cloudy day

There was a
Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day

There was a
Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - golden dreams were shiny days

August Scrap Our Stash - Blend-A-Sketch Challenge

Hello friends!

Here's a layout I made from the Scrap Our Stash August Blend-a-Sketch Challenge.  Of course I'm late posting it as usual but I still wanted to share.


I totally was inspired by the two sketches.  I turned one sketch and added the half circles from one and the layered papers from the other sketch.  And I added 2 arrows.  So fun!!

This cutie is my daughter from her freshman year when she was on the high school dance team.

I'm happy you could stop by today and look.  Check back tomorrow for my newest Scrappy Friends Challenge!!  I would love to have you join in!

Until next time...happy scrapping!
