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:
Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend. I am going to mow the lawn and do one of my favorite things ever….plant flowers!! 🙂
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.
Only this one is not so manic, thank goodness. The second day of our ever so generous two day Spring Break ha! *insert eye roll*
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. Mine was spent with children off and on over the last couple of days. We had dinner Saturday with A, his GF, and daughter here at the house. They had to spend Sunday packing for their trip to Disney. I think they left about 3:30 this morning and I didn’t have time to stuff myself in their bags *sniff*. I’m sure they will have a great time! Yesterday was dinner again with M and her BF, and then once again using my precious Silhouette Cameo to make vinyl decals for their cars. Maybe one day I will get to use it for my crafty stuff! C had his visit from the “creepy bunny”, but creepy or not, he was thrilled with the Playstation gift card so that he can finally buy that Minecraft skin pack he’s been wanting for weeks.
My favorite part of the weekend was being able to get outside and work and play in the yard. The weather is fabulous and we so deserve it after the long awful winter. One of these days, I am moving away from winter! I was also able to get some pretty good photos and can get by PL updated for this past week. Sometimes life seems so monotonous and I go days without a photo. But I really enjoy keeping up with life weekly and the family loves to look back at the one I did last year and see what was going on and when. I’m really getting in to the whole pocket scrapbooking trend and am a bit obsessed with journal cards at the moment. I grab all that I can get my hands on! Danyale of Etc by Danyale is hosting a challenge this month in her Facebook Group – Etc Pocket Page Group – where she is giving away journal cards and selecting winners from each week’s challenge. It’s a fun way to play around with Pocket Pages and win $10 to her shop! So, if you are at all interested, come join and give it a go! I’m also really enjoying looking around at The Pocket Source. Talk about some fantastic inspiration.
I’m headed out now to enjoy some more sunshine and possibly getting in to something crafty. I am having a really hard time finding cushions to fit my deck chairs, so I am thinking MAKE THEM! Have a great Monday!
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!
Let me just start by saying that I CT for the most awesome designers and I feel so incredibly lucky every time I unzip one of their fabulous kits! You can take a peek at all these wonderful ladies and their shops on my Creative Teams page.
Just thought I would pop in and share the pages that I completed this week. I’m going to do my best to keep this updated more regularly!
Aren’t those some gorgeous kits! Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
