November already…

Ha I honestly did not think it had been almost a month since I last posted! Not quite sure what happened but it sure feels like I have been super busy every single day. Just dropping by today to share some fantastic new releases for this week!

I’m hoping to do some more updating soon, maybe this weekend! I am so excited to start planning my December Daily. It really helps keep me and my mind occupied during the cold dark days of winter. Thanks for looking! Peace, out…

Seriously…

Yep, it’s seriously been two months since I posted. You know what they say about the good intentions. The summer got busy, vacation came and went, and we spent some time just in the moment. I’ve been stopping by to update my Scrap Pages and I *think* every page I’ve done is there. It’s just been a matter of not getting here to type up a post. I am going to make a conscious effort to try and post at least a couple of times a week from here on out. School has been back in session for a couple of weeks and we are finally settling in to a bit of an evening routine, so I should be able to keep up!

Today, I wanted to swing by and share some new releases for this week.

If you haven’t seen it, you have to check out the new collaboration from Allison Pennington, Etc. by Danyale, Fiddle-Dee-Dee, and Little Butterfly Wings. It’s called Life UnCensored – Daily Bull****. If there was ever a kit that I could use over and over and over, this one is it!

Over-it---Censored

 

Just Jaimee also has a beautiful new release this week called Foxy Fall! I am not a big fan of fall, but the colors in this kit are just amazing!

Autumn600

 

Weekend Collection by Akizo Designs was the perfect kit for scrapping a trip to the park we took over the summer!

Day-at-the-Park

 

I am also really behind on sharing pages I’ve done for Simple Scrapper the last couple of months, so I will be back to share those tomorrow, I hope!! Thanks for stopping by! Peace, out…

How did it get to be December?

Gahhh I’m not really sure how it got to be December! Wow! I am seriously feeling behind on life right now. Yep, all of life. I do have a good bit of shopping done and some wrapping. My goal is to be done before Christmas break starts in a couple of weeks, but we’ll see if that happens. I’d like to be able to relax and enjoy my time off this year 🙂

With all the Christmas scrapping I’ve been doing lately, it’s felt like 100 Christmases already hahaha. But seriously, if you have not seen this month’s BYOC at The Lilypad, you are missing out. It’s amazing! Here are a few of the layouts I did this week:

With the exception of today, I am up to date on my Document Your December layouts, but behind on Life in Pockets. I hope to get that updated in the next week or so, but we are tied up most days this week with band concerts and such. It’s the most wonderful time of the year…repeat…. Have a wonderful week!!! 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…

Oh Life…

How you have a way of keeping me from blogging hahaha. Yep, I’ve been away for a bit. I think I just needed a break from being at the computer so much. Other than keeping up with my CT obligations and scrolling through FB occasionally, I haven’t been on line all that much. We’ve been doing things in the time before school started, and then there has been football practice…every day, and games, and life. Now that work and school have started, I am trying to get some order and organization in my life and coming here, I hope, will be a part of it. I’m not going to post all the pages that I’ve done over the last few weeks, but I have updated My Scrap Pages with all of them and I hope to have my Life in Pockets updated by tomorrow. I still have a couple of weeks to catch up on there. I also have some planner updates to share and what I hope will be #plannerpeace. Maybe.

I am going to share my latest layouts and then hopefully from here on out I’ll be back on a more regular schedule…and with some other things, too.

We are less than a month away from welcoming our grandson 🙂 Things are getting exciting around here. Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend!!! 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.

And don’t forget to check out Penny Saver at The Digital Press!! Talk about some amazing deals!! I’ll be back with more on that and some other things I’ve been up to in the next day or so. Have a great start to the new week!! Peace, out…

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:

And that’s pretty much it for this week. I have one week to catch up on in my Life in Pockets and tomorrow I will get my planner all prettied up for next week and try to get some photos. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!! Peace, out…

All the crazies…

I am not even going to look back to see how long it’s been since I posted! It’s been so incredibly crazy around here with baseball, end of the school year, graduations, dance recitals…you name it, we’ve done it. All while trying to finalize everything at work for the year so I can actually start summer break. Tomorrow is our last official day, and I am soooo ready for some down time.

I just finished updating My Scrap Pages and I won’t post all of them here, but you are welcome to go check them out if you’d like. Here are the most recent ones and the ones from all my fabulous designers that you can still catch on sale this weekend 🙂

It’s supposed to rain all day today, so I am hoping to get caught up on a few things and just have some quiet time. I am not stressing the housework this weekend, since next week, I will have all the time in the world 🙂 Where ever you are, I hope you enjoy your Sunday!! Peace, out…

Routine? What routine?

So, I was in a pretty good routine posting here, and then…hello baseball season! Oh, and the end of the year madness. I’m struggling to catch a breath these days, but here in a few weeks I will get to take a really big deep breath for the whole summer!

I’m just going to skip to the chase and post all the layouts I’ve done recently and hopefully get back on track this weekend! Some were done as CT layouts, and others as part of all the festivities for iNSD, which I didn’t get to really get in to as much as I would have liked.

Spring time and Saturdays…

I love them both! Especially together when the weather is really is as awesome as it was today. Things are starting to get back to normal around here after the last few weeks. It really was draining and exhausting. I all in for a little normalcy. Baseball practice has officially started and school work is getting crazy. It’s that time of year and I am so happy to have it here.

I wanted to take a minute to come by and share some new releases for this week while they are still on sale, and a couple of pages from earlier in the week that I didn’t get a chance to share. I’ll start with a couple of layouts that I did this past week. These are no longer on sale, but still gorgeous at their regular price!!
