Simply Monday…

But not just any Monday. This is the Monday that we start adding 30 minutes on to our school day because of all the crappy snow days we had UGH. We have to be there 15 minutes earlier and stay 15 minutes later for the next 6 weeks! They are adding 5 minutes on to each class period. I’m not really sure what they think it’s going to accomplish, but I guess it looks good on paper time-wise. Oh well…we only have 7 or 8 weeks left anyway. I think I can, I think I can!

I thought I would take time out today to share my layouts 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:

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.

Simply Saturday…

I absolutely love Saturdays! There is something so calm and peaceful about them…no rushing around, no stress. Even time to come here and blog!

I have never been one to do much with a “one little word” for the year. I mean, I usually start the year thinking about something I would like to focus on, but I’ve never taken it much farther than that. This year, I decided that I really need to not only choose a word, but really focus on what it means in my life. Over the Christmas Break, I was watching some Instagram stories from people I follow and they were talking a lot about a #lighttheworld campaign. It really made me stop and think and ultimately led to me choosing Light as my word for this year. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense to me in several different ways. I’m going to spend some time jotting down all the ways that light impacts my life and my hope is to blog regularly about how I am focusing on light in my life.

To start things off, I created this page for River~Rose Designs this week, who created an amazingly perfect kit!! It’s called Be A Light:

Light
Be A Light by River~Rose Edgy and Angled by Crystal LIvesay

Among the things that I have had in my thoughts regarding light are ways in which I can lighten up in my life. Being a part of Simple Scrapper has helped me focus on some of those ways as far as my scrapbooking goes, and in other areas! The Simple Scrapper Premium Membership provides amazing content and support for being purposeful and productive without getting bogged down.

Simply Monday…

I know, right! Two days in a row. I can probably thank a snow day for that. We have another one tomorrow. There goes MLK Day and Presidents Day. Ugh, I hate snow. I would so much rather have these days when it’s nice outside and I can go out of the house without the air hurting my face. But it’s where I am right now, so I guess I’ll just enjoy what I get.

I was sitting here catching up on a few things and realized that I haven’t shared the layouts that I did for Simple Scrapper this month. I love being a part of the team at Simple Scrapper.

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.

Jennifer also has a book out called The New Rules of Scrapbooking! It’s awesome and it’s available at Amazon! I can’t say enough about the community at Simple Scrapper and Jennifer. So much inspiration for scrapbooking and simplifying life in general!

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…

 

Simply Tuesday…

I think I’ve said before that Tuesdays don’t get much fanfare. Just a day, unlike Monday when everyone is bummed, or Wednesday when everyone is all about humping, or Thursday and Friday when the weekend is calling. Tuesdays are just kind of there. Not as bad as Monday, but not so good either. Simply Tuesday. I’m starting to get adjusted to simple. I haven’t done a whole lot since school was out. Going from 100mph to 0 is tough on an old lady. But I’m finally getting in the groove and getting some things done.

Simply Wednesday

This is what I need more of these days…simplicity! The last month or so has been a big crazy, sad, stressful blur. Simplicity is so underrated.

I’ve really needed it in my scrpabooking life, too.  I thought I would take a minute to share the layouts that I did for Simple Scrapper this month.

Wednesday also means it is SOSN at The Lilypad! So many great deals to be had. I didn’t get an opportunity to play with much, but I did get a new page done with Danyale’s Morning Coffee Kit and Word Art. It also uses Valorie Wibbens amazing new templates – A Bit Worn Topography No. 2 Relax

Hope the rest of the week brings more simplicity!! Peace, out…

Simply Monday

And a snowy one here. I am totally ready for winter to be over and spring to make it’s appearance. But I guess it will happen in its own time. We had a one hour early release today because of some impending weather. It’s supposed to snow on and off for the next few days. Right now, they have us on a delay for tomorrow. I guess we’ll see what the overnight brings.

Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy the rest of your Monday!! Peace, out…

Simply Tuesday

I had a conversation with a co-worker last week about how Tuesday kind of gets the shaft. No big attention paid to it like Monday, it’s not hump day or almost Friday. It’s just there…a day. We decided we needed to celebrate Tuesdays a little more…show them some love. We have some pretty strange conversations sometimes!

Anyway, I’m running by today because I realized that it’s November 10th and I have not shared some of my favorite pages. The ones that I do for Simple Scrapper! If you have not checked out the Premium Membership at Simple Scrapper then you really should. It is such a supportive community and full of inspiration and motivation to get you scrapping purposefully!

Simply Sunday…

There is something so peaceful about Sundays…especially rainy ones. I so love the simple things on Sundays. I’m swinging by here today to share the layouts I did for Simple Scrapper this month. If you have not checked out the Premium Membership at Simple Scrapper then you really should. It is such a supportive community and full of inspiration and motivation to get you scrapping purposefully!

I loved the Story Starters and Templates this month and had a great time creating with them! For the first layout, I chose to describe myself using only word art. This was fun and I tried to describe myself the way I am most of the time! I used Think Happy Be Happy by Amy Wolff.

For the next one, I used a story starter all about my current camera and used a kit by Etc. by Danyale called Musings.
