New Releases…

Happy Friday!! Hope all my US friends had a wonderful 4th of July celebration yesterday. Ours was a little different this year because my oldest is in CA with the National Guard training for their upcoming deployment overseas. We mostly celebrated by hitting the gym and grilling some burgers.

And now that it’s Friday, it’s time to share those amazing new releases!! It’s BYOC time at The Lilypad and I got to play with a couple of new kits that were so much fun!

My youngest was obsessed with Toy Story when he was little, so this collection from Kim Jensen was so perfect for finally scrapping the photos. I paired them with brand new templates from Pink Reptile Designs:

New this week…

Happy Friday! Hope you have a fantastic weekend on tap, wherever you are in the world! Personally, I’m hoping for a quiet, simple weekend at home. I haven’t had one of those for a few weeks!

Stopping by today to share a couple of fabulous new releases for this week!

First up, a new month coming means a new Storyteller from Just Jaimee!! I think every new one becomes my new favorite!

Next is Rack ‘Em Up Collection by River~Rose. I’m loving this one because I have quite a few photos from our days of shooting pool at the Elk’s Club that I haven’t scrapped yet. Plus, I just adore the color combination! Those are my colors!

I didn’t have time to scrap with much else this week, but I hope to have more next time! Make sure you catch these goodies on sale this weekend!! Until next time, peace, out…

Life in Pockets…

Hope you’re having a great week! I had to look to see the last time I updated with Life in Pockets pages,  and I see that I’m actually not that far behind. This is the reason I love using Just Jaimee’s Ready to Go Templates! They make being caught up and staying caught up so easy! I haven’t gotten more than a couple of weeks behind this year and we are just about at the half way point. Wow, that’s hard to believe!

Anyway, I thought I would stop by today and share my latest pages! This is such a fun project and I am so glad I started it! Now to find time to go back and try to catch up on the years I missed!

Are you doing any tome of Life in Pockets or Project Life? I’d love to see your work! Thanks for taking the time to look! Peace, out…

Long time…

I have seriously been letting this summer get away from me. I haven’t spent too much time at the computer, there’s just been too much other stuff going on. The end of the school year, all three of my kids birthdays, and a wedding in the last few weeks. After school was out, I started doing a major purge of my house and a good cleaning. C and I also joined Planet Fitness, so I’ve been adding that to the routine 4 or 5 times a week. Whew. I think it’s about time for some relaxing on my porch with coffee and a book. Hoping to get on that right away!

I wanted to swing by here today and share my Simple Scrapper layouts for April and May. I love being a part of the team at Simple Scrapper. I really feel like it helps me to create some meaningful, purposeful layouts and inspires me to create pages that I may not have thought of otherwise. The Premium Membership offers exclusive content and a supportive, generous, and inspiring community. So much amazing content! Some of the benefits include a private groups, Spark Magazine, chats, podcasts, sketches, and story starters. Totally awesome!

Just wanted to stop by really quickly tonight and share my latest Weekly Pocket Pages. I am happily up to date and hope that I am able to stay that way for the rest of the year haha

Here are weeks 20-23 🙂

It’s been a busy time!! I’m hoping that my upcoming pages reflect some relaxation time!! Until next time…peace, out…

Sum, Sum, Summer Time…

Finally made it to summer break! The last couple of months have been insane and all I’ve been trying to do is keep my head above water! Now I have a little breathing room and I’m going to working creating some new habits. I am totally planning on this blog becoming one of them.

For now, I wanted to stop by and share my few layouts for this past weekend so you can see some of the gorgeous new releases.

Simply Sunday…

I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and if you are fortunate, you may be looking forward to another day off tomorrow! We are in full wedding prep mode at my house. My oldest is getting married next Saturday, so we are spending the weekend working on decorations and finding something to wear! It’s been a whirlwind engagement and we are all a little crazy, but I know it will be beautiful!

Holy Cow…

Well the last month has sure flown by! If you know me, you know that this time of year is always the busiest for me. The end of the school year and all that goes along with it makes me about crazy. We are a couple of weeks from school being out and I’m feeling it for sure! I’m hoping to do some catching up around here this weekend while we have an extra day off, but for now I’m thought I’d pop in and share this weekend’s new releases.

#the100dayproject

I’ve been keeping up pretty well with this project. In case you don’t know, I chose photography and more specifically just getting back in the habit of using my Nikon again more regularly as my project. I am taking the photos every day, even if I don’t get them uploaded on time haha.

Just thought I’d pop in and share some of the more recent photos

You can see them all here – #the100dayproject. Thanks for looking! Until next time, peace, out…

A bit of a break…

Finally, a bit of a break from work! We don’t get much of a spring break, but I cherish every second! It’s that time of year when everything is pretty crazy and I could use some down time. Plus, I do have a little work that I need some free time to catch up on!

Just thought I’d swing by and share my layouts for this week. There are some gorgeous new releases come at you!
