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



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.

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 for this month:

And now I am off to back that thing up! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!! 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!

And this page is using the new Perspective by River~Rose

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!!

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






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

If I am not babysitting, I may try to swing by tomorrow and do a planner update. I haven’t done one of those for awhile! I’m out for now! Thanks for looking and I hope you have an amazing upcoming week!! Peace, out…

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!!

I’m going to head out for tonight, but since I have my evenings back now, I hope to get here a lot more often. Until next time…peace, out….


Oh wow, it’s been a while since I was this glad to see Friday come!! Can I be real for a second? I love what I do, really, but weeks like this really test my sanity. I’m not sure if there was just something in the air or what, but the kids have been out there…like, way out there! I’m exhausted. But it’s Friday, there was no football practice, and I’m chilling in my PJ’s and hanging out online while I listen to the 12 year old yelling at a video game. Yep, he’s out there, too…wherever “there” is. I would almost swear it’s a full moon, but I know it’s not. Anyway, I thought I’d swing by and share my pages for this week. There’s some awesome new stuff in the stores and you don’t wanna miss getting it while it’s on sale!

Just Jaimee has an amazing Add-on to the September Storyteller called Hello Autumn. It is so gorgeous!!

Hello Autumn by Just Jaimee


I am totally in love with Friday Night Lights by ForeverJoy Designs. I seriously could scrap with this one for days with all the football photos I have! These are from the Jason Witten Football Camp that C went to this summer.

And I absolutely adore Happening Now by River~Rose! Such a beautiful kit!! I paired it with some fantastic new templates from Crystal Livesay – Last Days of Summer. This is my little grandson waving at me as he pushes his stroller around the football practice field.

I have some catching up to do on PL and I hope to get that done after football games tomorrow. This week has been so crazy that my planner is laying in front of me completely blank and empty. No stickers or even any writing. It looks so sad. I’m going to have to get on that as well. So, that’s it for me today! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!! Peace, out…

Sunday Funday…

It’s actually been a really quiet calm Sunday, and I really needed that!! Yesterday we had to be at a salute to the military and first responders during the football games and then C and I went to the movies with A and M last night. We went to see IT in IMAX. Really cool, if you haven’t seen it. But I still love Tim Curry as Pennywise!

Anyway, I thought while I was having some quite time I would come by here and share a few layouts. I didn’t scrap any new releases this week because it was so hectic, but I did upload a couple that I had done earlier.

This first one is done with for Amber LaBau’s blog template challenge! I also used it for the Random Challenge at The Lilypad. I used Wonderful You by Amber LaBau. It’s a fantastic template and you can get it for free on her blog!


This page uses Amber LaBau’s featured product for September – In the Orchard. If you create a page with this kit by September 30th, you have a chance to win $10 to her store! You can check out the details on her blog!


I’ve already scrapped a couple of pages for next week, so I will have something new to share then!

I got caught up on another week of PL today, too! Here is Week 35


That will wrap things up for me today! Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!! Peace, out…

Happy Labor Day…

It’s been a really low key Labor Day around here. I did some laundry, mopped the floor, and took a nap…perfect. I was also able to scrap a few pages and print some stickers.

I just thought I’d drop by and share my PL pages for the last few weeks. I still have the spread for this week to do and I’m all caught up again, but it will probably have to wait until next week.

All of my pages for this year use Just Jaimee’s Ready to Go pages!! They are a life saver for me. All I have to do is add photos and journaling and I’m done. Sometimes I change things up a bit, but if I’m in a bind, I don’t have to. They are seriously amazing!!


And while I’m here… I’m going to try to stay more of top of sharing my planner pages. For those I use Just Jaimee’s Story Planner kits. They are amazing as well. I’ve been printing the stickers for my desk planner and also making a pocket planner for my purse using all the contents of these kits.


And that’s it from me for today. I hope you have all had a fantastic Labor Day weekend and the upcoming week treats you well!! Peace, out…

Crazy days…

This week and next are probably two of the busiest of the whole  year. My goal is to be done shopping and such by next Friday when we are out of school and this weekend will be spent getting everything ready for all that goes on at my school and C’s this week. I need to do some serious catching up on wrapping and make a few gifts. I also have 2 pot lucks this week to prepare something for. This past week was spent with C’s first band concert and rehearsal. So, needless to say, not a lot of scrapping got done this past week. Actually none during the week. I hope to do some serious catching up this weekend. I have a couple of layouts to share that I managed to get done last weekend before the craziness!!

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:
