Scrap Our Stash August Challenge

Scrap our Stash has a challenge this month to "re-do" a project. I am not really a "re-doer" so this was a bit of an extra challenge for me. (especially since I am still out of town with limited scrap stuff and photos) I decided to look through my photos on my computer and see what I had that I wanted to do again. I found the photo of my hubby and I at our rehearsal dinner in the Bahamas. I really loved how that layout turned out and so decided to see what I could come up with. (I am not posting the old photo because I can't find it on my computer right now and I need to go home)

I used a photo of my dd that I had with me and thought that turning the "sketch" would make it more fun and interesting to re-do.

I just love the colors that I used together. I think the red really just pops off the page. My daughter calls herself Mei Mei. That isn't her name but what can I say?! ha (her middle name is Mae and Mei Mei means little sister in Chinese) I just think she can't say Georgia very well and most of the family calls her Georgia Mae so she just says Mei Mei.

Anyway, it doesn't matter and I am rambling. ha You should go check out this challenge at Scrap Our Stash.

I'm getting very excited because I only have one more week before I leave to drive back to Nevada!! (and to my precious wifi! LMAO!)

My kids don't start school until August 29th! Doesn't that seem really late?? I have been trying to gather some of their school supplies when I can get to the store because I know they will be sold out by the time I get home! ha

I did get some new shoes and school clothes for them. I'm getting thing done slowly but surely.

My birthday is coming up on the 24th and my friend, Denise and her family are coming to help me celebrate. I can't wait!! My kids can't wait for her kids to come and my hubby can't wait for her hubby to come!! LOL It will be a nice end of summer party. The won't actually be there on my bday because her kids start school on the 24th.

Is it wrong that I am kind of ready for summer vacation to be over??! ha The only thing I don't look forward to is HOMEWORK! ha

Hope you all are having a great week!

  6. Hi Stacy, love this layout, and yes the red really does something for the LO. And your little 'Mei Mei' is sooo adorable!! Your birthday is just one day after my daughter Kyra's, she's turning 18 on the 23rd of August. Very important age because here in Holland they can start taking driving lessons. I'm trying to arrange it so she can have her first lesson on the day itself. Hope you are having a great time hun! Hugs, Frea

  7. What a gorgeous layout! I also wanted to thank you for commenting on the Moxie Fab World post about me!

  8. Georgia Mae is an adorable name just as adorable as Georgia herself! That little flower is so cute too. Did you make that yourself?

  9. How adorable!!! Enjoy your last week there, and just think how wonderful a good internet connection will be when you get home...lol!

  10. Super cute lay-out!

    I bought most of my school supplies at the end of last year! Saved me a bunch of money! It seems as they get older (4th & 5th Grade) they need less! We are only in day 2 of school and have already had one huge melt down.. Went something like this, your hair clip doesn't match your shirt please pick something else out. Then image me ducking to avoid being struck in the eye with a clip then hearing " I hate my Life!! Why does everything have to happen to me???"

    Really??? from a 9yr old? It's not looking good for me! It's going to be a long year!

    I'm sure I will have my one way convo with you before you head home but just in case... safe travel!


  11. Gorgeous page, ADORABLE little one.
    Blessings Bernie

  12. Fabulous redo girl!!! (Though it's hard to say if it's better w/o the first one, lol.) The red totally pops off the page and makes the layout. The flowers rock. We can't wait till you get home either! Chris is always asking if you left yet! So funny. Nick told me how lucky Olivia was to have an extra week of Summer vacation! He's so not happy about starting 3rd grade. Let the homework wars begin, ugh.

  13. your daughter is so Adorable! She's so cute so with your Layout! Love love it!
