iNSD and Other Craziness

Wow, this was one crazy week. Both in the scrap world and in real life. You can tell it’s getting close to the end of the school year because everyone is getting on each others’ nerves every day. And I’m not just talking about the students, the teachers can be just as bad haha. We are down to just over a month left and I’m not sure there is anyone more excited than me. The past couple of summers and just been, well, crappy. I mean I appreciated the time off, but they weren’t the rejuvenating fun filled times that they should have been. I’m so hoping that this summer is full of fun and memories and sunshine (unlike the rainy one last year).

We also got to do a little celebrating this weekend. My oldest proposed to his girlfriend at Disney World last week, so we all got together for dinner on Friday with her family for a little celebration. She is a wonderful girl and her family seems lovely. I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

In the scrappy world, iNSD is in full swing. There are games, chats, challenges, gifts, sales, and fun everywhere! It’s hard to keep up. I’ll be honest, I tend to bury my head in the sand on some of these big event days because it’s all so overwhelming. The past few years, I haven’t been around much for this one, because it always seemed to fall on prom weekend. No proms this year…kids are grown up. Well, except the one, and I have a few years with him before I start all over and honestly, boys are much easier than girls ha. So, I did manage to scrap quite a bit. There were a few things I had to pass on because I just ran out of time. But I can tell you, these designers work their butts off for this day. I don’t know how they do it all. Here are  the pages I managed to get done during the craziness:

Fabulous Friday and More New Scrappiness

Happy Friday, everyone! I so totally love Fridays! Our one day of the week to come home and just chill. No homework to be done, no dinner cooking, no chores, no nothing….just time to breathe again. I swear 3rd grade homework is going to be the death of me!

Thought I would take a minute to drop by and share the rest of my layouts for this week. There some fantastic stuff hitting the stores.

Throwback Thursday and Some Scrappin’

I always have a good time looking back through photos, finding something fun to post for Throwback Thursday. This week I chose a photo from 2006 – C’s favorite game of pulling M’s hair!

Scrappin’ Saturday!

Getting ready to do a little scrapping for the upcoming week, but thought I’d take a minute to share what I’ve done this last week. I am so honored to be creating for some of the most fabulous ladies! You can see all of them with links to their shops on my Creative Teams page. I haven’t done so well keeping the Scrap Pages page updated, but there is a link to one of my galleries there if you are at all interested in seeing more lol. I did, however, update my Project Life 2013 page with the finished result and created Project Life 2014.  But here’s what’s new this week!

Hope everyone has a wonderful blessed Easter!
