Simply Saturday…

I thought I would take time out today to share my layouts for Simple Scrapper this month. I realized that I hadn’t shared for a bit and need to catch up with those. They are always some of my favorite pagegs!!

I love being a part of the team at Simple Scrapper. I really feel like it helps me to create some meaningful, purposeful layouts and inspires me to create pages that I may not have thought of otherwise. The Premium Membership offers exclusive content and a supportive, generous, and inspiring community. Some of the benefits include a private Facebook group, Spark Magazine, chats, podcasts, sketches, and story starters. Totally awesome! And here are my pages:

Oh Spring…

Spring just keeps popping in here for a day and giving us a little taste and then runs off again. We had a winter with pretty much no snow and now we are getting ready for our second winter storm since the first day of Spring. I am not a fan. I am not a cold weather person. I do not like snow, especially if there is a chance I will have to drive in it. But I don’t reckon there is anything much I can do about it, so we bought a bunch of snacks and we’ll just hunker down for the weekend.

I know I haven’t been by here for a couple of weeks, but I have been trying to stay on top of a class that I’m taking this semester and do a little scrapping here and there. I wanted to make sure that I got here to share some amazing new releases this week.

I’m going to do some PL catch up this weekend and get my Planner set up. It’s been awhile since I updated photos of it here. I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend! Until next time…peace, out… 🙂

Backing it up…

I’m getting ready to back up everything on my computer from February! I’m a few days behind, but it’s still early in March. I do this every month, without fail! I have come too close to losing everything a couple of times, so now I am dedicated to backing up at the end of every month. I have two EHD’s where my photos and scrapbook pages go to live. I actually have 3, but one is full. My scrapbook kits get backed up to my big EHD. I need another back up for them as well. I would hate to lose them all, but my photos and pages are what mean the most to me.

But before I get to that, I wanted to swing by and share a few more pages!!

River~Rose and Grace Lee teamed up this week for an awesome new kit called New Chapter by River~Rose and Grace Lee and I also used this template set – Stand By Me by Crystal Livesay and Two Tiny Turtles

Graduation-Day

 

A new month also means new layouts for Simple Scrapper!! Being a part of Simple Scrapper has helped me focus on purposeful ways as far as my scrapbooking goes, and in other areas! The Simple Scrapper Premium Membership provides amazing content and support for being productive without getting bogged down.

Rabbit Holes…

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

From my happy place…

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:

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…

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:

Seriously…

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.

This is BYOC week at The Lilypad, and oh my at the goodness!! Here’s my pages

New, new, new…

Staying up to date as much as I can right now 🙂 It will be nice when football season is over and I have my evenings back again. But until I do, I will make the best of it and get here when I can. We spent the afternoon with football games and our team lost pretty badly. I’m not sure what all they are doing wrong, or what they are doing right. Hopefully they will get it all together.

In digi-land, there are some fabulous new releases this week and I had the privilege of working with the best!!

First up, Danyale teamed up with Studio Basic this week for one amazing collab – Everyday Brave. I am so in love with this one!!!
