In Deep…

Well, I’m in it kind of deep this morning. My PC decided to blue screen on me twice in the last couple of days, so I decided it was time for a long over-due reformat. I’ve had this computer for about 2 years and never done a good hard reformat, but I’ve put it off simply because I did not want to got through setting it all back up. Since all baseball stuff was cancelled for the weekend, and I had a bit of time, I figured it was as good a time as any. We are only going to get busier! Now, here I am, deep in re-installation hell!

I figured I would take a minute out and come share layouts for this weekend before I go any further and before I face-palm because there was something I forgot to back up (it always happens).

If and when I get my Photoshop re-installed and running, I will catch up on my Life in Pockets pages. I’m a couple of weeks behind, but it shouldn’t take me long to get caught up. Wish me luck as I go in deeper! Have a great rest of the weekend. Peace, out…

I’m just flying by after basketball and before bed. I’ll be back with more goodness to share in the next day or so! Thanks for looking…peace, out!

Let’s Get It On!

The new year that is! Bring on 2015! I’m ready for the new year with new plans and new organization…at least in my mind ha. We’ll see how it all pans out. We had a pretty quiet New Year’s Eve watching the festivities from New York on TV, eating lots of junk, and playing around with silly photo booth stuff that I printed for C. The new year, so far, has been spent doing a whole big bunch of nothing.

I have been working on uploading some scrappy stuff and will be getting  my Scrap Pages updated when I wind up this post. There is all kinds of fantastic stuff to start the new year! If you make it to the end of this, kudos to you!!

Danyale has a great new set of journal cards called The Dirty Deck – Holidays. These are so much fun! I used them for this page along with her new release all about Christmas Catastrophes called Better Luck Next Year:

And if you stayed with me this long…thank you!! Wishing you all the best for the new year. Peace, love, and happiness 🙂

 

 

Ummm yeah….

I didn’t think it had been that many days since I was by here hahaha. Oh my, the time is going by too fast. Maybe there is just too much going on at the moment. Creeping up on A’s wedding in less than 2 weeks. I still don’t have a dress or shoes or hair done or,  well, anything. I guess I truly will always be the queen of procrastination! I did get the place for the rehearsal dinner set. It’s a nice little coffee shop here in town and a lovely place to sit and eat and talk.

We had homecoming week at school last week and some super fun dress up days. Monday was 50’s/60’s, Tuesday was 70’s, Wednesday’s was 80’s/90’s, and Thursday was senior citizens day. Our dept always has the best participation! We didn’t get a group photo every day, but here are a couple from the 80’s and senior citizens day

It’s a lot of fun and the kids really get in to it as well.

In the scrappy world, I guess I have some catching up to do on posting. I can’t say enough about how much I love my designers! They are all so great and creating for them is truly a pleasure!

One bit of sad news first. Dear sweet Loni aka Zoliofrope is retiring 😦 I will miss her amazing templates but love her for making the decision to put her family first and be the best she can be. She does have a great sale going on right now!

And now for the rest of what I’ve been lucky enough to work with the last couple of weeks!

I’ve also got a couple of pages to add to my Project Life. I’m still behind, but not quite as far LOL Have a great rest of the weekend!!

TGIF

Fridays don’t mean a whole heck of a lot on summer vacation, but well, it’s still Friday 🙂 Just got finished updating my Scrap Pages and man, there was some gorgeous stuff to play with this week. Credits are attached to all of them so you can find all the goodness!! I am almost caught up on Project Life. I have to do last week’s page and this week over the weekend. I’ll get that updated in the next day or so.

Summer is quickly winding down. The schools here in this area have already gone back, so I am glad that I teach down the road a bit! We have several things going on the next few days. I go with A and C to Roanoke tomorrow to get their tuxes for the wedding. THAT should be interesting. I told C that on Monday we would head to Pipestem State Park and go horseback riding. He has never been on one, so that should be interesting, too! We also need to get in a few more pool trips before the summer is over! I have to go to work on Wed of next week for some training…yuck! I finally got my hair done yesterday after 7 months and it feels so much better!

I shared a fun pic on Facebook for Throwback Thursday yesterday, so I thought I would share it here as well. I miss my dad.

This was taken in 1996 at Smith Mountain Lake, VA. My parents owned a condo there and we spent a lot of time in the summers at that place. Yes, this is what my dad liked to do for fun – hang my children from curtain rods LOL He was the best!

I’m out of here for now. It’s a rainy day and I have some errands to run. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
