Happy Friday!! Friday evenings are a favorite of mine. It is the one day of the week that we just do a lot of nothing. No homework, no chores, no cooking…just relaxing, maybe scrapping or movie watching. This Friday was a bit different because we had the day off due to some pretty significant flooding in the county where I teach. I feel so bad for all those who were affected by it. There were several campgrounds close to the river that were completely under water. I spent the day cleaning the house so that I can enjoy the rest of the weekend. I seriously need to spend as much time as possible catching up on Project Life! I am so many weeks behind and there’s so much more amazing, fun stuff coming up!
I thought I would jump on tonight and share the new releases for this week, and then hopefully be back to share some PL pages as I finish them!
Happy DSD weekend!! For those who don’t know, DSD is Digital Scrapbooking Day. There are challenges, games, and sales galore!! I honestly get a little overwhelmed sometimes and decided a few years ago that I would just sit back and do what I could, when I could. There is just so much! But what I have done this week and into the weekend is scrap!
It’s also BYOC weekend at The Lilypad! Talk about gorgeous!! Here are just a few of the kits you can find on sale:
I’m also hosting a DSD Scraplift Challenge at The Lilypad if you are into having some fun and possibly winning a little prize.
There are more fun and games over at The Digital Press and some amazing new releases and fantastic for DSD!!
I’m hosting one of the monthly challenges over there – All About Me!
And even more amazing new releases over at Sweet Shoppe Designs!
Did I mention the word overload? Insane, isn’t it!! I hope you are joining in the fun and getting some memory keeping done! I’m heading back to the forums to see what I can get in to, so until next time…peace, out…
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
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.
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.
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…
Trying to wrap my brain around where the last two months have gone! Wow! I barely even remember them passing. Everything at work was just crazy. I finished up a class, had another project to complete, and held tons of meetings. Baseball season was a blur. Chance’s team didn’t do very well, but he had a great time and that’s all that matters. He really loves the game. School ended last Friday and since then I’ve been cleaning out rooms and prepping for a yard sale tomorrow. They are so much work, but I will be glad to be rid of all this junk! I have a one rule when it comes to yard sales…if it goes out of the house, it doesn’t come back in. Whatever doesn’t sell, will be donated or trashed. Once this week is over, it’s really time for summer break to begin!
Other than all of that, I’ve been trying to keep up with some scrapping. I am way behind on project life, but caught up in most other areas, even though there is so much I would love to do! My Scrap Pages is up to date, so if you want to check out what I’ve been up to, you can look there.
I thought I’d drop in while I have a quick minute and share some of the fantastic new releases this weekend!
And last but certainly not least is Hello Happy Collection by River~Rose. I paired this one with June Bingo Templates by Crystal Livesay.
And now that crazy time is over, I hope to have more time for blogging, so I will be back soon! For now, I’m off to do a little reading before I finish setting up for the yard sale! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!! Peace, out…
We are having a lovely rainy day here today. Why do I say lovely? Well, for starters, it’s not snow!! And a long time ago, I was walking my daughter in to kindergarten, grumbling about the rain when she looked up at me and said, “But mommy, if it didn’t rain, there wouldn’t be any puddles to jump in”. I have never looked at rain the same since. We had a crazy busy week, so I’m taking the rain today as a sign to slow down and catch up on a few indoor things that I’ve been neglecting. Plus, I’m getting a little time to scrap and to come by here!
I wanted to take a minute to share what’s new this weekend and the layouts I’ve created!
I’m a little behind on PL right now but only a couple of weeks. I hope to get them caught up quickly. I also have a couple of other layouts for Simple Scrapper that I need to upload and share, but I’ll be back with those 🙂 I hope you have a lovely rest of your weekend!! Until next time…peace, out…
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.
And I also wanted to tell you about the amazing Retirement Sale going on at The Lilypad!! There are some gorgeous designs that are going, going, gone! Make sure you take a peek and get them while you can.
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… 🙂
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.
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!!
Wow, I didn’t actually realize how long it had been since I posted here. I honestly think the whole month of December was a blur! I have thought about it quite a bit, just never made the commitment to sit down and post. I’ve spent the last day or so reorganizing everything, creating new pages for the new year and coming up with ideas to get me posting here more often. We’ll see if it sticks!
I finished up my Life in Pockets for 2017 and you can see it all HERE. Well, all but one week I am finishing up. I’m not sure why I got stuck on that week, but I’ll insert it when it’s done. I also started my Life in Pockets for 2018. I have the cover done and will start on pages next weekend. I’m excited for a new year.
I also started and finished Document Your December for 2017 and you can see that HERE. I only went through the 25th because honestly we haven’t done a whole lot since then.
I’m not going back and add all the layouts I’ve done in December. I’m just far too lazy. But I hope to keep up better from now on. I plan to add the blog to my list of layout upload places and that should make it easier :).
And if you’re looking for some excitement – It’s MOC time at The Lilypad! 31 days, 31 challenges! If you complete them all you get a $20 gift certificate to The Lilypad and a chance at a Polly spot! It’s a sweet gig, I tell ya! Under my scrap pages, I added a section just for my MOC layouts! I love participating and stretching myself out of my comfort zone! It’s always exciting to see the challenges pop up every day! If you haven’t signed up, you really should! It’ll be fun, I promise!
Ok… I’m out for now. Just wanted to post a little update and get myself on track! Hope to be back soon! Until then, peace, out…
Relaxing, catching up, couching. That’s what Sundays are for. I haven’t gotten to the couching part yet, because DH is hogging it up! I’m going to kick him off of there soon!! But, I thought I’d take the time that I have and come by here and share some layouts for the week. It’s not to late to catch a lot of these awesome designs on sale!
I’m still playing along with MOC at The Lilypad! I’m caught up to today and will try to get that layout done after some couching 🙂 Here’s what I’ve done since I last posted:
