I'm Back!

Hey....anyone out there still stopping by here?  Sorry to have been gone so long.  No good excuse except I have been in a funk.  A scrapping funk I mean.  I've barely scrapped at all in the last two months.  Ever since I got my Fitbit Flex (a pedometer thingy) for Christmas and made a resolution to try to get healthier this year, I have been out walking instead of sitting in my scrap room either on the computer or scrapping.  But I think that I can find medium ground because I need to be a bit creative everyday too.  So I'm BACK!  (lol)

I'm still the co-dt coordinator at Sketches4all and we always have a Design Team challenge that starts on the first of each month.  This month it is a sketch challenge and it is Anything Goes.  Here is the gorgeous Pagemaps sketch you have to work with:

And here is the card, yes...card, I made as my example.  Baby steps people!!!  ROTF

Not my best work but at least I got my feet wet right?

This challenge lasts until April 30th and there is an awesome prize by our fab sponsor, My Creative Time.  So if you have the time and like the sketch you should join in!!

Life is busy like usual around my house.  Kids are busy with school and after school activities.  We are full swing into boys lacrosse season and my son's team is doing really well this year!!  So it is super exciting to go to games.  It is always fun to watch!  We have a game tonight in fact.

My daughter just finished up her season on her Dance Team with a big banquet at school.  She looked beautiful as always and really loved being on the team!

Okay, time to go walk.  I hope to hear from you if you are still visiting!

Until next time...happy scrapping...or walking.... lol

    But I am totally proud of you!! I think that is awesome!! (Since my running almost 2 years ago (yikes) my crafting has also taken a back seat.

    So glad you are back! Carri~Abusybee

  4. Glad to see you back Stacy....your daughter looks pretty...keep on walking and I hope you will find your scrapping spirit again...Hugs Jose

  5. I'm new here, but I saw your comment on Queen Kat's blog and thought I'd stop by. I love your card and that is a fabulous sketch. I especially love your pattern and color combinations.
    I'm a fitbit junky too! Maybe there's a club for us. LOL! I found the perfect mix, I craft at a stand up desk and I keep my adhesive, inks, etc. on the opposite side of the room. That's basic steps but they count. Plus you can dance while you create. Did you know you will burn 70 to 140 additional calories if you are standing instead of sitting for one hour?
