I did it…

I got my PL all caught up for this year, even including this week!! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me! Last week, I was 10 weeks behind. I have never been that far behind! Ok, so there is one missing week. I don’t know what it is about September, but I am sorely lacking photos in September every single year! I think it has to do with getting back in the swing of work and school. I will go back and finish that page when I figure out what I’m going to do about the lack of photos…maybe a lot of journaling! But for now, I fee complete and ready to move on from here!

You can check out all my pages HERE, but I’ll share the ones I’ve done for October

Now on to all the other things on  my to-do list!! Hope you all have a great upcoming week! Thanks for looking, and until next time, peace out…

TGIF…

There is something so wonderful about Fridays! C and I started the day with Starbucks because M had told me that the Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte was so much better than the hot, so I had to try it. Ummm no. Just no. I bought a Venti and didn’t even drink half of it. I’ll stick to the hot, thank you very much. Then we jammed out to Flush the Format on the Kidd Kraddick morning show on the radio. I’ll convert Chance to an 80’s music lover yet haha. Work/school went pretty well, and there’s just something about looking forward to the weekend that makes it better. That and being able to wear jeans!

On the way home, we decided to take advantage of the McDonald’s mobile order and pay to get a couple of large drinks and a free medium fry. We’re loving the deals on the app. I don’t cook on Friday. We either do leftovers, pick up something, or throw a pizza in the oven. It’s the one day of the week that we don’t worry about chores or homework or really anything for that matter. We just chill and sometimes get in a little nap!

The other great thing about Fridays is all the awesome new releases around digi-land, so I thought I’d swing by and share a few!!

At The Lilypad, Just Jaimee has this fantastic new add-on to the September Storyeller. It’s called Then and Now and it’s so beautiful!! I paired it up with the Template add-on for September

Then-and-Now

 

Over at The Digital Press, Rachel Etrog has an absolutely gorgeous new kit called Storyteller, and I paired it up with some amazing new templates by Akizo Designs called Autumn Leaves 03.

Fall-Memories

 

And at Sweet Shoppe Designs, River~Rose has a gorgeous kit called Magical Forest. I paired it up with some fun new templates called Fall Market by Crystal Livesay.

Staircase

 

It’s supposed to rain this weekend, so I plan to spend it trying to catch up on my Project Life. I have several weeks that I need to get done and I’m determined!! I hope you all have a great weekend!! Peace, out…

Simply Saturday…

Catching Up…

I’m still a little behind on Project Life for this year, but I hope to be caught up in no time. I just thought I’d drop by today and share the most recent pages I’ve done. It’s so fun to look back through the years and see what was going on at various stages. Some things stay the same and some things change so much!! You can check out my entire album with credits here – Life in Pockets 2018.

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.

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:

Week-6L

Week-6R

Week-7L

Week-7R

Hopefully I’ll be back soon. I’m hoping to get a planner update done in the next couple of days!! Thanks for looking!!

Catching up…

Just doing a bit of catching up today and some planning for what’s to come. I didn’t realize that I hadn’t been here for a couple of weeks, even though I’ve been updating my Scrap Pages.

I’ll start by sharing this week’s pages

Mad

Love-Bug

My-Space

Friday

What-I-Love-600

I’m hoping to get started tomorrow on some new things and updates on some old things and basically just do better about keeping up. I need to work on scheduling a few posts in advance and on scheduling a set time to do that.

I have a couple of PL pages to finish so that is all caught up. I’m feeling determined to get it done this time.  But tonight…I’m tired lol So, I’m just going to leave it at this and I’ll be back! Thanks for stopping by! Peace, out…

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

Life Happens…

So yeah, it’s been awhile. We’ll just say that life happens and this time it was mostly football season. It consumed my every evening and every weekend since July. It all came to an end after last weekend when they lost out in the playoffs. We then spent Monday and Tuesday trying out for basketball. He didn’t make the team, but it was a really good experience for him. Anyway, I finally finding a little time to catch up on a few things. I got my Scrap Pages updated with all of the layouts since my last visit and I’m working on catching up with my Life in Pockets spreads.

I only really got one page done for this week and it was with Just Jaimee’s November Storyteller Collection. If you are not a subscriber, you are missing out on some fabulous designs and some awesome add-ons!!

Love-This
