Friday…

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!!

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…

Busy or not so much…

I can’t decide if I am busy all the time or not really doing anything at all. This summer is flying by and I am down to 2 more weeks until school starts. Part of me doesn’t mind it. I start to crave adult interaction. But part of me wishes I had a little more time to finish all the things I wanted to do. But it’s coming, like it or not. I am not going to complain about the babysitting this summer. These days are short and I will cherish this time with him always. I’m sure I will miss him when he is not with me all day. Football practice has started again, so we are spending 2 hours every day, 5 days a week at the practice field and this is our last free weekend before the games begin. Things are about to get crazy! I’m working on a plan to be more organized with my daily to-dos. We’ll see how it pans out!!

If you haven’t been by The Lilypad to check out this month’s BYOC, you really should, like now, before the sale ends. The colors are fantastic and the designers just continue to outdo themselves! I actually got a few pages done with it:

I’m only one week away from being caught up on my Life in Pockets, so I’ll be back to share that. I also have another project that I did last week and want to share. Until next time….Peace, out…

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:

Love Saturday

Saturdays rock! They really do. Even if I spend a good deal of it cleaning. I love the relaxing time in the evening when I can catch up on things I’ve missed on line and not have to be worried about getting ready for the day coming up.

I’m headed to catch up on PL as soon as I’m done here, but I wanted to drop by and share the gorgeous newness this week.

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:

I’m going to spend the rest of my evening doing my PL for this week and hanging out in the gallery at TLP. So much wonderful inspiration there. Have a great rest of your weekend!! Peace, out…

Simply Friday…

I have really come to enjoy the simplicity of Friday. No football practice. No homework. No cooking. No running. Friday evenings have quickly become my favorite! It’s really the only evening of the whole week with nothing to do. So, tonight I thought I would take a minute to share the layouts that I did for Simple Scrapper this month. 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

I didn’t get a whole lot of scrapping done this week, but I did get to play with this gorgeous new kit by River~Rose called Autumn Evening and it’s on sale this weekend!

I’m going to spend the rest of the evening getting caught back on on PL and playing in my planner. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow to share some of that 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!! Peace, out…

 

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!!!

This it for today. I am off to update my planner and hopefully try to get back here tomorrow to share what I’ve been up to with that lately. I also need to do some catch up work on my Life in Pockets. Hope you have a fantastic Saturday night!! Peace, out…

Busy, busy…

Yeah, summer is still happening here. Football practice started right after my last post and it is two hours a day, every day. It seems like we no sooner get up, get chores done, and eat, then it’s time to head out to practice. Such is the life. I have two more weeks of summer vacation and I already see the days filling up with things that need to be done. I’m determined that we will squeeze some fun in there! But I’m not going to dilly-dally here. I’m just going to drop off some pages so you can see what I’ve been up to and the gorgeousness from my amazing designers and then I’m off to bed to start all over tomorrow.

Yeah, so…

What happened was…summer. I’m feeling like I haven’t been very productive, but I have managed to clean out a few rooms and do some fun things. C and I ended up taking off for the beach, just the two of us. R was hoping for a phone call about a new job and didn’t want to leave, so since it would be the only chance for us to go because of football starting, C and I jumped in the car about mid-week and took off for a few days. It was really nice to spend some time together and do a lot of the things that he and I like to do. Since we’ve been back, I’ve just been catching up on some things around the house and hitting the pool and a few baseball games. And we’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon Go! It’s about to get crazy here again, so I’m not sure that productivity will happen this summer ha. Football practice starts tomorrow, I have to go in to work on Thursday, and I need to start doing some pre-work stuff before school starts.

I haven’t even scrapped all that much, but here are the pages I have managed to get done 🙂

Motivation…

I’ve finally found a little motivation and have been doing some cleaning out and purging around the house. I hate taking the time to do it, but it feels so good to get rid of junk and de-clutter!! I’ve done 3 rooms now and today I worked on the out building, sweeping and cleaning. Now to just finish the rest of the house!!

Needless to say, I haven’t scrapped a whole lot because I’ve been doing all the other things. But I did want to come by and share what’s on sale this weekend. It’s some gorgeous stuff!

Starting with this amazing collab from 2 of my favorites – Just Jaimee and Sara Gleason:
