April Showers…

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…

Moving right along…

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.

This one is using Just Jaimee’s Storyteller 2018 – March Collection! I can’t wait to see it come to life in my PL pages!

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!!

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…

It’s beginning to look…

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!

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:

Planning the New Year

Well, the day has come…back to work tomorrow and I’m not sure I’m ready for it, mentally anyway. My goal for the last several years has to be better organized, and I think I’ve done fairly well at it every year, but not where I’d like to be. So, this year, I decided to purchase a planner and really get down to business. Another thing that is helping me along is all the great planner accessories out there in digi-land. There are so many pretties!! I am going to do my best to share my planner progress here and have created a page for it – Planner Pages 2016. I’m really enjoying dressing it up and keeping track of things already.

I am using a Heidi Swapp Memory Planner and it is the perfect size for me. Everything I have used so far to decorate it comes from Just Jaimee’s Story Planner 2016 January Kit and her Welcome Bag. Make sure you check out all the great deals you can get by subscribing and becoming a VIP!

This is a dashboard that I printed for the very front of the planner. In the pocket to the side are the stickers that I have printed and cut to be used throughout the month.

The Planner came with some pockets, so I just printed a couple of cute journal cards for the new year and slid them in.

On this first sheet that was included with the planner, I am tracking all the basketball games and practices that we have coming up in January.

This is a journal card from Just Jaimee’s Storyteller 2016 Collection that I just loved.

I also added a month at a glance card from the Welcome back and another dashboard that I printed and glued to the first page of the new month.

I prettied up this page with some fun stickers and am using it for birthday and important date tracking.

And this is the first week of January, with not much there yet, with the exception of a few fun stickers and a back to work reminder.

I will try to be back and update with each week’s progress as I can. I already have some fun ideas for the coming weeks. Thanks for looking and hope you have a terrific week ahead! Peace, out…
