We are having a lovely rainy day here today. Why do I say lovely? Well, for starters, it’s not snow!! And a long time ago, I was walking my daughter in to kindergarten, grumbling about the rain when she looked up at me and said, “But mommy, if it didn’t rain, there wouldn’t be any puddles to jump in”. I have never looked at rain the same since. We had a crazy busy week, so I’m taking the rain today as a sign to slow down and catch up on a few indoor things that I’ve been neglecting. Plus, I’m getting a little time to scrap and to come by here!
I wanted to take a minute to share what’s new this weekend and the layouts I’ve created!
I’m a little behind on PL right now but only a couple of weeks. I hope to get them caught up quickly. I also have a couple of other layouts for Simple Scrapper that I need to upload and share, but I’ll be back with those 🙂 I hope you have a lovely rest of your weekend!! Until next time…peace, out…
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.
River~Rose also has a gorgeous new collection out this weekend and still on sale – April Rains:
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…..
Not so much here, but in life I guess I’m moving right along. I’m taking a class this semester on Google Classroom and Google Suite, so any and all spare time I have had has been spent on that. My new year plan for posting more regularly has kind of fallen by the wayside for right now. Maybe I need to stop thinking and planning and just do.
Anyway, I thought I’d stop by before bed time tonight and share a couple of new pages for this week.
And this page is using the new Perspective by River~Rose
I am working on this week’s pages, but other than that my PL is up to date. I have been going back and using some older JJ templates this year, instead of the Ready to Go pages. I am kind of missing them, but looking forward to a new look in my book I just had my 2017 book printed and I am loving going through it!! Here are the last couple of weeks:
Hopefully I’ll be back soon. I’m hoping to get a planner update done in the next couple of days!! Thanks for looking!!
Ever get sucked down them? I sure do! Just about every time I sit down at the computer to do one thing, I’m off on adventures looking up a thousand different things! And that’s why I never seem to get here like I intend to! I swear, I can be going to upload a layout and next thing I know I’m looking at phone cases or reading about missing people or any other random things, but I never remember how I got there haha.
But anyway, I just wanted to pop in tonight and share some amazing new releases out this weekend and get caught up on posting my MOC layouts!
You can check out my page – MOC Pages 2018 – to catch up on all things MOC!! It’s hard to believe that it’s almost over! I am caught up through today and looking forward to the last three days of challenges!
I’m telling you, Etc. by Danyale and Little Butterfly Wings make the most beautiful babies!! They have this one out this week called Dear Karma 2: Innercircle
And it’s time for an amazing new Storyteller from Just Jaimee!! This is the February 2018 Kit
River~Rose has a lovely new kit out called Two Hearts today that I used for 2 pages of my kiddos. The first uses an older template – Mix it Up Vol 2 – by Crystal Livesay, and the second uses a brand new template – Shapin’ Up: February by Crystal Livesay and Jimbo Jambo Designs.
If I am not babysitting, I may try to swing by tomorrow and do a planner update. I haven’t done one of those for awhile! I’m out for now! Thanks for looking and I hope you have an amazing upcoming week!! Peace, out…
Relaxing, catching up, couching. That’s what Sundays are for. I haven’t gotten to the couching part yet, because DH is hogging it up! I’m going to kick him off of there soon!! But, I thought I’d take the time that I have and come by here and share some layouts for the week. It’s not to late to catch a lot of these awesome designs on sale!
I’m still playing along with MOC at The Lilypad! I’m caught up to today and will try to get that layout done after some couching 🙂 Here’s what I’ve done since I last posted:
We are at the beach for the Thanksgiving holiday and it’s been awesome. Temperatures have been mid 70’s perfect and I got a little Christmas shopping done. I just hate that it’s about over and we are headed back to the cold, but hopefully we’ll be back soon. I thought I’d take a few minutes while I’m relaxing on our last night here to share some amazing newness in the shops this weekend. I think this is the most layouts I’ve scrapped in a week for awhile.
Check out these amazing new designs that you can still catch on sale at The Lilypad:
And this newness at The Digital Press
This one is also available in Sahin Designs personal store
And there are also some awesome Black Friday sales going on and I took some time to play with this great bundle
Hope you all have had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I’m off to see what else I can get in to this weekend! Peace, out…
Saturdays rock! They really do. Even if I spend a good deal of it cleaning. I love the relaxing time in the evening when I can catch up on things I’ve missed on line and not have to be worried about getting ready for the day coming up.
I’m headed to catch up on PL as soon as I’m done here, but I wanted to drop by and share the gorgeous newness this week.
Aren’t those fun!! I love them all. Digi-world is getting geared up for Black Friday and it’s going to be awesome!! And no crowds!! I hope that you all have a great rest of your weekend!! Peace, out…
A lot like Christmas!! Especially if you have been over at The Lilypad this weekend. The designers have knocked it out of the park this week with all their amazing Document Your December creations! This is one of my very favorite projects of the whole year! I try really hard to have all the pages mostly made before December starts so that all I have to do is add photos and journaling. I did a cover pages and several other pages this past week, so I have a good start! The photos it my layouts here are from last year, but I will redo them when the time comes with this year’s photos!
I’m starting to feel so festive hahaha
But there are some other fantastic creations out there this week! MEG Designs is the featured designer at The Digital Press. Her whole store is on sale 30% off and she has some beautiful products!
Also at The Digital Press is this gorgeous kit by River~Rose
And last but not least, is this gorgeous collection by Sahin Designs
I’m going to spend the rest of the weekend working on PL for this week and trying to get some more DYD layouts ready to go. December will be here before we know it!!
I love them. The chores are done. The house is clean. The laundry is put away. Football is on tv this time of year. I am a happy girl. Now if I could get back on track with posting here more often, it would be great haha.
Football practices are still eating away at my evenings. I’m not sure what I will do with my time when we don’t have to go any more. C has decided that he is not playing basketball this year, so we have the winter off from sports. Honestly, there is a part of me that will miss it, but I will enjoy the extra time and not have to go out on cold snowy days.
Exciting news in my scrappy world – I am now a Polly for the Lilypad! How awesome is that. I’m still just kind of hanging around getting in the swing of things and learning how things work. It’s been fun so far!! I’m looking forward to being more a part of such a great site!!
I’m a bit behind on sharing pages, but here’s an update on what I’ve done the last week or so:
I think I’m going to spend the rest of this Sunday evening getting caught up on PL and hanging out at the Pad! Hope you have a great rest of the day and a wonderful upcoming week!! Peace, out!!
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.
