Still Waiting…

We are over 2 weeks in to spring now, and I am still waiting to see it! I’m looking out my window right now at snow on the ground and more expected tonight. I’m so over it. We have had a few fairly nice days here and there, but no definitive spring yet. That hasn’t stopped the busy from coming though. Baseball practices have started. IEP season at work has started. And the countdown to the end of the school year has started. Sometimes it feels like the days drag and other times it feels like life is going by at lightning speed.

One of the things that brightens every month for me is BYOC at The Lilypad!! Amazing designs that all coordinate so beautifully. And if you haven’t seen this month’s, it is gorgeous!! Here are just a few sample pages by me.

I am working on catching up with Project Life. I only need to do this week’s spread, but I will be taking some photos today to add to it. I’ve got some actual work to do for my IRL job and I guess I need to make that my priority for now. Hope to be back soon with new updates! Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful and relaxing! Until next time, peace out…..

Marching on…

Wow, I can’t believe it is March already!! But I have to say, March makes me very happy!! I know that winter is ending, spring starts, and the time changes back to Daylight Savings Time. I think that is the happiest day of the year for me. I love the light in the evening! And that takes me back to my One Little Word that I have seriously neglected! I need to get back on my focus with that.

A new month also means BYOC at The Lilypad! Opening the store is like opening the door to spring with this BYOC! I worked with as much of it as I had time for and I absolutely adore all of it!

I need to spend some time this weekend getting caught back up on my weekly pages! But I’ll be back tomorrow to share more new stuff! Thanks for stopping by! Peace, out…

Friday, y’all…

It’s Friday!! Of course it hasn’t been much of a work week for me! We went to school on Wednesday on a 2 hour delay, and have been off ever since due to the extreme cold. Most of that time for me has been spent babysitting my water pipes that like to freeze up when it gets too cold. My poor hairdryer is worn out! I think I am really craving routine though. I’m having a tough time structuring my day and spend too much time getting lost in rabbit holes online.

But, I have done some scrapping because…BYOC and MOC! The colors in this month’s BYOC at The Lilypad are so gorgeous! Here are the pages I’ve done with it:

I’m hoping to pick up my big camera some more starting tomorrow and get to work on my PL for 2018. I have a start on it but not sure I’m happy. I need to think on it haha.

Hoping to have more to share soon. Have a wonderful weekend!! Peace, out…

Happy Thursday…

This is one particularly happy Thursday!! You gotta love a great four day weekend!! I’m telling you, no one really knows what it’s like inside a school on the first week back with students after summer break. I’m exhausted as I know all of my teacher friends are. I really need this weekend to get myself back on track and feel like I am with it again! The best part today was when they cancelled football practice and I got to come home and grab a nap!

If you weren’t aware, it’s BYOC at The Lilypad!! I didn’t get to play as much as I wanted to, but I swear I seriously love each one more than the last! Here are a couple of pages that I did manage to get done last night:

And now I am off to try to do a little catch up on PL and hit the bed kind of early. I’m still pretty tired and I’m ready to get started tomorrow! Until next time, peace, out…

Beginnings and endings…

There’s something refreshing about a new month. Time to start over, start fresh. Here we are in November. As much as I dread the cold weather cBOYoming, part of me loves this time of year and starting to think about the holidays. Football is over now and we have our evenings back again. Maybe with the new month and more time, I can spend more time here.

What a great  weekend it is in digiscrapping!! Designers never cease to amaze me with new and gorgeous creations!!

Over at The Lilypad, it’s BYOC time!! Check out these gorgeous goodies:

I’m going to spend the rest of my evening doing my PL for this week and hanging out in the gallery at TLP. So much wonderful inspiration there. Have a great rest of your weekend!! Peace, out…

Seriously…

One day this space will become habit for me. Just when I think I’m on a roll, life throws a curve ball and I’m behind again. This time it’s for the best of reasons, though. I have a beautiful new grandson! He is absolutely precious and I adore him! I got the call on my way to work last Friday, so we spent the weekend either at the hospital or at football. This week it is raining and chilly, so I am spending some time getting caught up on all the neglected things. Football was cancelled and I was finally able to go get my hair done.

I’ve uploaded all my layouts for the last few weeks to My Scrap Pages, but I’m not going to share them all here today. Go check them out if you’d like…credits are on each page.

This is BYOC week at The Lilypad, and oh my at the goodness!! Here’s my pages
