Hump Day, Happy Day

So I said I was back and then didn't write for a week! OOPS! That's what we call......grace....hehehehe.  Because you will give me grace as a busy mom to 3!  And honestly I wasn't writing, not because I didn't have anything to say but I didn't feel like I had anything to share! I haven't been scrappin, haven't done any paintings, nothing creative really b/c I've been busy with prior obligations and kids sports and such.  However I was looking through some pictures I have taken over the last year of layouts and noticed that I haven't shared near as many as I have and I have an entire stack of layouts that I need photograph and upload. I might work on that next week or the following....no promises though. For now here are a few....

This is of my sweet girl on Easter a few years ago, I used Noel Mignon Kit and I apologize I cannot remember which one and I believe this layout was for a challenge she had also. (see it's been waaaaay too long). 

I don't remember the purpose of this one either BUT these pics were taken Christmas before last at my Aunt's house when we celebrated on Christmas eve. 

And this one I just love of my lil guy! That face! Just makes my heart warm every time! 

Well I won't be on again until sometime next week.  I am busy cleaning around my house today and tomorrow and then I am headed off to a much needed retreat....a scrapbook retreat with 2 of my best friends!!!!! :D I am soooo excited to scrap some pictures and maybe work on getting my December Daily album together....although I doubt it....I just want to scrap some pictures....for fun...for me. It's been a while since I've done that so I'm READY! 

Hope everyone has a great week ahead and a FABULOUS weekend! Do something creative!

Coming Back

Good morning friends! Or Happy Hump Day! I've really been thinking about life, my family and memories I want to remember and it's got me into seriously thinking about how I do things and wanting to change that.  I am by no means a writer, a professional or anything of the sort BUT I do however want to get back into blogging and writing to remember this crazy journey we call life.

I've been digging into research on several things and ways to document life.  I, of course, will continue to scrapbook and I promise to work harder at sharing those pages on here.  I think I will work on a loose schedule of writing and I say "loose" very loosely b/c we all know me and how I keep a schedule! Haha! I'm thinking maybe if I sit down a few days a week and write them out and schedule them in advance maybe, just maybe I can stick to it better.

Anyway-we are starting some new things around here and I will be sharing those as we get closer to it and what we are doing and how.  Please share and invite your friends and join me on the journey! Leave comments and such b/c I LOVE hearing from all of you! :D

For now-I will leave a picture with you....my really good friend Kayleigh got married over the weekend and asked me to take her wedding photos! I was shocked and honored! I tried to get her to really get a professional but she wanted me! I sure hope I lived up to her expectations! I quickly learned the pressure I put on myself was all on me though and not her.  She sent me a few ideas via facebook but mostly she wanted me there, to not be in her face, just ready to click when she said "I want this!" She was the boss and it worked out great for me! I've got to get busy editing those pics but here is one of me and her and few of my favs!

Here we are....another week almost gone and it snuck up on me! Actually I have been dealing with traveling and sick kids. UGH....that's the worst having a sick kiddo! But all is better around here now thank goodness! I'm hoping everyone is on the mend.

I am stopping in today to share a layout I did recently! Hope you enjoy it!




I used the last Noel Mignon kit :D I had so much fun playing with papers, making the banner, the stickers and buttons and all kinds of goodies!

Week In The Life.....Epic Fail

So last week was an Epic Failure for me! Which comes to no surprise that I do not do project life. I'm just not programmed that way! It's a nice thought in theory but I just don't do well! I like to just take pictures when the mood strikes, scrapbook and now blog about it.....oh well....maybe I'll try again later....who knows. I'm excited to see everyone who actually did participate though!

Today I am sharing some junk journal pages I did for a swap over on the two peas board.  They are very plain for my taste.  It was my first swap like this to participate in and I had a really hard time creatively with them. I'm not sure why....I just had a mental block and it may be because I do my pages based on an actual picture.....that's my starting point.  So to create something for 9 other people with nothing in mind is kind of challenging! I will probably end up sprucing my up when they come back to me....we shall see.


These first two are for the traveling one....not really sure why I participated in this one b/c we don't travel.....I should have done the summer one....oh well. 


This one is for fall....my FAVORITE time of year! And I just realized when I took this picture that tag looks very plain BUT it has 3 stripes of colored washi tape and a leaf glued on there to give it some dimension! 

I hope you all enjoy your day!

Under the Weather

Hi y'all! I'm still here...sorry I haven't been posting pics from day in the life...I honestly haven't even taken very many pictures....may have to do this week again later. Anyway I'm just not feeling really great right now and I wanted to let you all know I'm here...hopefully I can get back to some normal-ness soon. :(

It's Funday Monday!

Sounded good anyway! Sounded like a great way to approach the new week! We are just hanging out today for a few reasons....and lil miss starts dance today! So excited! (she is anyway).  My lil guy is up with me this morning and he is so cute....he goes to the window, opens the curtain and says "you see that (as he points outside) it's time to get up." He was referring to sissy....so cute!

Anyway, today is the day for the BIG  .....Week in the Life with Ali Edwards and she gives some really helpful tips to help through the week! I'm super excited to do this project again, we have some changes going on in our family so it will be neat to document some of them....I almost wish this project was next week or the following....oh well...maybe I can do it again! After today this weeks posts will contain photos from the previous day and maybe some of the lists I want to include....

I thought I would share a layout with you today also.

My mom snapped this picture of me and my lil guy.  We were out having some family pics with my mom and J man said cheese! I love lil snap shots and tidbits like this :D 

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Make sure you make it count!

TGIF-well they all run together for me!

Happy Friday! Do you have any big plans? I have plans for hanging out with my kiddos! Tonight we are planning a movie night in!!!! We haven't done that in a while....Love those lil guys!

So you may have noticed I forgot my post yesterday! ACK! Sorry about that...things were hectic here yesterday morning and then I was gone all day at a friends house scrapbooking and then back home was CRAZY! So today I will post 2 pictures!!!! :D (lucky you lol)

This first one is of my girl at her birthday party! I actually used my cricut to cut out the 7 from some Bella Blvd paper.  MME enamel dots...thsoe are so fun and washi tape! What project from me would be complete without washi tape! 

This is a selfie with my bestie! We met at a town thats about 45 mins from each of us one day...sure wish we did that more often! Anyway-we chatted while the kids played and just caught up on life and it was wonderful. I MISS her sooooo much! :( I'm hopeful she can come soon to hang out with me! :D 

In other news did you see where Ali Edwards is doing her annual Week In the Life project? Have you ever participated? I did one time and that was in 2010 and honestly the only reason I haven't done it since is b/c I didn't see the blog post for it.  I'm noticing it's different every year and this morning I was catching up on the blogs I follow and it caught my eye! THANK GOODNESS! I enjoyed this project so much b/c it gave me a glimpse into what I did all week. She has giveaways each day....you should play along!!!! 

I hope you enjoy your weekend! Hug someone that means something to you! :D
