Hope everyone is enjoying Digital Scrapbook Day! I’ve been trying to hang around as much as possible and I’ve taken advantage of some great sales! This last week was kind of crazy for me with my birthday and working late because of parent/teacher conferences, but I am so glad that I was also able to get some scrapping in with the awesome new products that have hit the stores for this fun weekend! Check out some of the great stuff you can find and at great prices for DSD:
And now I’m just beat, so I think I’m going to enjoy some couch time and come back to see what fun is going on tomorrow! Have a great weekend!!
Just swinging by because I had to share the great deals happening right now and they are about to end…so run LOL!
If you haven’t seen, it’s Dollar Days at Pixels and Company. There are tons of gorgeous designs and they are all $1 each. Today is the last day, so don’t miss it!! Here’s a few pages I did with just some of the things you’ll find there:
Well, normally I would be happy to see Fridays come, but this one not so much. It is technically my last day of summer vacation. Looking on the bright side, let the countdown begin again! Part of me does crave the routine of the school year, but the evenings do become so rushed and there never seems to be enough down-time. But like it or not…here it comes again!
Fridays are pretty awesome in the digi-world. Lots of gorgeous new releases! I have a few new pages to share.
I am totally enjoying being a Guest Polly for this month, especially since I get to work with amazing designers like Sissy Sparrows. It’s been a bit since I got to play with one of their kits and they are so fabulous. This one is The Marble Jar.
Over at Pixels and Company Celeste Smith has curated this adorable kit called Foodie. that is a great compliment to the August Collection as well as a great stand-alone kit.
And last but certainly not least, and brand new tonight, is Little Miss Sunshine by Traci Reed. Adorable!
Looking forward to a relaxing last weekend before the rush begins. Enjoy yours!!
Summer is winding down and I am slowly coming to terms with that fact. I’ve had to work several days this last couple of weeks, so I think that’s kind of easing me back in to things. I finished up my transformation of M’s room in to a new office for me and I will share photos of that in a new post. There are a few things I didn’t get to this summer, but no point in stressing about it. It is what it is. We’ve had a good time and been able to do some really fun things. I have one week left and I hope to pack as much fun in to it as possible!
The best thing about it being August for me is the fact that I am a Guest Polly at The Lilypad this month and getting to work with some absolutely amazing designers and scrappers! I think I have scrapped more this week that I have all summer. Look out…here come all the layouts…
August also means a brand new collection – Bon Appetit – from Pixels and Company. They are always so amazing and this one is no exception!
I also have 2 new pages for Traci Reed. I love both these kits..so fun and so appropriate for my wild and weird children!
River~Rose has a new guest spot at Ginger Scraps and I love this adorable new kit. I used it to scrap M’s kindergarten photo from 15 years ago. One of these days, I’ll be caught up on their childhood lol.
Whew! Thanks for hanging with me. I’m off to see what I can get in to today and hopefully get some more scrapping done. Have a great Sunday!!
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…
Yeah, so it’s been a couple of weeks and yeah, same ole busy, busy, busy. I am taking a class this semester and, every little bit of weekend time that I’ve had, I’ve spent working on stuff for the class. It’s interesting stuff, if you like classes on teaching methods, but between that and the usual spring IEP, paperwork, testing, etc, I don’t have much “free” time. We have a 4 day weekend going on right now. That is the extent of our “Spring Break”. I am so envious of those who get a whole week off, but we are on the countdown to the end of the year! I’m also tackling a pretty big project in my time off…painting all my kitchen cabinets. They’ve needed an update for a long time. I got about half way through yesterday and will probably get the other half tomorrow. Today, we are going to color eggs and go to mom’s for dinner.
We got C all signed up for baseball a couple of weeks ago and he had try outs last week. We heard from the manager of the team yesterday and he will get to be #45 (Michael Jordan’s baseball number). Their team is the Giants and we have our meet and greet on Tuesday evening.
I haven’t had a chance to see it in person yet, but M now has a house of her own! I have informed her that she now must come and get all of her stuff haha. I’m dreaming of a craft room! But all of that will probably have to wait until summer, when I have the time to do it.
I have managed to get in some scrapping the last couple of weeks, and pretty much keep up with my weekly spreads. I’ve updated both galleries, but here are some of the pages I’ve managed to squeeze in…
Thanks for having a look and hope everyone has a happy and blessed Easter! Peace, out…
So I did plan to come back here a few days ago and share some more wonderful things, but I’m telling you, this weather and time off work have really gotten to me. I have no motivation to do anything. I keep thinking of all the things I could have had done around here with all this time off, and yet I have done nothing. Well, I have cooked, eaten, and washed dishes repeatedly…but nothing extra. I’m not going to spend any more time whining about it. There’s nothing I can do about it, I just wish I could make myself enjoy it a bit more. That hasn’t happened. C is ready to go back to school as well. He keeps saying that he is getting more brain damaged every day. I guess even more so than 9 year olds already are hahaha.
But anyway… here is what I failed to come back and share over the weekend. I got to work with some amazing new goodies by Traci Reed. One is a solo kit and one a collab, and they are both awesome.
This one uses She Is:
This one uses Rise and Shine:
And this one uses both:
I just finished up my week 8 layout for Pocket Life. It uses Pocket Life ’15: February Collection by Traci Reed,
Out of the Box v2 by Gennifer Bursett, and Weekly Edition by One Little Bird:
I’m off for now…going to maybe do a little more scrapping and trying not to think about the fact that more snow is coming tomorrow night Peace, out…
February already? This time of year, I love having the time fly by! Even though we haven’t had much of a winter, I’m ready for spring! Give me the warm sun in my face and flip flops on my feet! We spent the weekend with basketball and football. We had a snow day on Friday which really helped me out with getting the house cleaned up, since Saturday was tied up with basketball and yesterday was spent getting ready for, and then having company for, the Super Bowl.
Just thought I would swing by here today to share the new Collection at Pixels and Company for February. I have only just begun creating layouts with this beautiful collection. I just love everything about it!!
There is also a fabulous Birthday Bash going on, so be sure to swing by and check it out! Fun challenges and great prizes!! Even one for creating your own cell phone case! How fun is that? Here are the pages I’ve done so far…
Come have some fun with us!! Until then…peace, out!
Who doesn’t like something for a buck? At Pixels and Company, there is all kinds of amazing designs priced at $1 each! Exciting! Here are a couple of pages that I did with some of these fantastic products!!
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!
