So, yeah….

It’s that time of year where I am not around much. Work is insane and then add baseball to that. We have been doing baseball 5-6 nights a week and it’s really starting to become draining. I’m not really feeling like I am keeping up with much of anything. But, less than a month from now it will all be over and I’ll wonder where the time went.

I’m not going to add all the layouts I’ve done the last few weeks here. I’ll just upload them to my Scrap Pages and if  you want to have a peek, you’ll find them there. What I did want to share is that two of my favorite designers, as well as two of my favorite people are retiring from design. It makes me very sad that I won’t have new goodies from them to play with regularly, but fortunately I have a great stash from both. I wish them both all the happiness in the world!

First up.. Val of ValC Designs. I’ve been on her creative team for about 3 1/2 years now and I have to say that working with her designs really helped me think outside the box and create some pages that are among my all time favorites. Make sure you check out her awesome sale and grab her gorgeous designs while you can. Image is linked to her store at Oscraps.

Next is Tracy of Tracy Martin Scrapbook Designs. I created with Tracy’s stuff back when I was on the site CT for One Story Down and totally fell in love with her amazing creations. I was over the moon when she asked me to be on her creative team over a year and a half ago. Her kits are among my very favorite of all time and I find myself going back to them over and over!! Don’t miss this chance to get all her amazing creations while you still can!! Images linked to her store.

Alrightie.. that’s it from me tonight. I’m off to get my gallery updated and hit the bed. Peace, out….

Ahem….

Yeah, I’ve been away for a bit, but it is that crazy busy time of year. IEP season is in full swing, I’m finishing up work for a class I’ve been taking this semester, and C started baseball. Not to mention the fact that the weather is better and I just don’t want to be inside as much! Just thought I would cruise by and update all my pages. I’m getting ready to work on the latest PL pages, but here are the rest of the pages I’ve done since I’ve been away

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend. I’ll try to update sooner next time! Peace, out….

Well…

I’m not really sure where the last few days went, other than we did finally get back to work for 3 days and then off another 2. I am over winter. Fortunately, it does look like the next week or more will be beautiful and no temps below freezing! I also love, love, love the time change! I really do think about this blog every day and say I’m coming to post something and then one thing leads to another and I piddle around and don’t do it. But anyway, I’m here now and wanted to share a few new things for this week!

First up, it’s a brand new month at Simple Scrapper! If you haven’t checked out their Premium Membership, you really should. It’s a great community filled with wonderful scrappers! You also get access to a full library of sketches and Story Starters to jump start your creativity, Spark Magazine, planning tools, and lots of other unique and awesome content. Here are the layouts I created with sketches and story starters from the Premium Membership:

Peace, out….

One of “those” weeks!

Where do I even start about the last week or so! Yikes! It started off just fine, still mild weather and not a whole lot going on except going back to work after the break. It wasn’t so bad…sometimes adult interaction is just what I need! Then it all went down hill. Winter decided to make an appearance and it got really cold, like below 0 cold. We ended up being out of school on Thursday, but as much as I’d like to enjoy a snow day, having to spend it with frozen water in my laundry takes all the fun out of it. Back to work on Friday and I end up in the ER before the end of the day with a kidney stone. I still have it I guess, I’m not so good at following directions and straining things, but we have been out a lot and I am not carrying those things with me! TMI? Anyway, after getting home from that and going off to basketball practice, I’m thinking things are looking up for a good weekend. We pull in the driveway after practice to water gushing out of the side of our house. The water pipe and burst and flooded the laundry room. Have I mentioned the fact that I hate winter!! So that’s where I stand….still drying floors and washing clothes by hand for the time being.

I’ve been trying to keep up with MOC at The Lilypad, but the events of last week have put me a couple of days behind. As soon as I log off here I am going to try to catch up. I have been keeping up with CT work pretty well and am still always amazed at the goodness that comes my way every week! Here’s what’s new with my awesome designers this week:

The last page is for Val C’s challenge over at OScraps…it’s a great one, so check it out if you get a chance! And don’t forget that MEG Designs’ template challenge is still going on, with a template created by yours truly!

I will be back tomorrow with some cool stuff from Simple Scrapper to share for this month! Monday is done….Peace, out 🙂

And Breathe…..

It’s been another couple of weeks, but a crazy couple of weeks. My son is now a married  man, for better or worse as they say. It was a small but really nice wedding. And now I’m exhausted. My birthday is tomorrow and I don’t even want to celebrate haha. The time changed last night as well, and I hate it! I do not like it getting dark so early. All of my energy is gone once the sun goes down. But anyway, I’m hoping to get back on track with a few things now and get ready to gear up for the holidays.

This weekend was DSD and while I didn’t get to take part in all the activities, I did get to scrap some last week during down time! I updated my scrap pages with all these new pages:

Ummm yeah….

I didn’t think it had been that many days since I was by here hahaha. Oh my, the time is going by too fast. Maybe there is just too much going on at the moment. Creeping up on A’s wedding in less than 2 weeks. I still don’t have a dress or shoes or hair done or,  well, anything. I guess I truly will always be the queen of procrastination! I did get the place for the rehearsal dinner set. It’s a nice little coffee shop here in town and a lovely place to sit and eat and talk.

We had homecoming week at school last week and some super fun dress up days. Monday was 50’s/60’s, Tuesday was 70’s, Wednesday’s was 80’s/90’s, and Thursday was senior citizens day. Our dept always has the best participation! We didn’t get a group photo every day, but here are a couple from the 80’s and senior citizens day

It’s a lot of fun and the kids really get in to it as well.

In the scrappy world, I guess I have some catching up to do on posting. I can’t say enough about how much I love my designers! They are all so great and creating for them is truly a pleasure!

One bit of sad news first. Dear sweet Loni aka Zoliofrope is retiring 😦 I will miss her amazing templates but love her for making the decision to put her family first and be the best she can be. She does have a great sale going on right now!

I’ve also got a couple of pages to add to my Project Life. I’m still behind, but not quite as far LOL Have a great rest of the weekend!!

Getting back on track

I am really going to work on getting back on track here. This month may be more difficult for me because the wedding stuff is upon us! Two bridal showers down and two weddings to go. We had my future daughter-in-law’s shower on Friday and they got lots of nice things. Next week is my niece’s wedding and then we have 3 weeks to do all the final preparations for my son’s wedding, including find me a dress *ugh*. In the meantime, I am just working and trying to keep my sanity.

Keeping up with scrapping helps keep me sane, but I am falling way behind on my Project Life. I am hoping to remedy that later today. I might have to do more writing than photos in there because I still don’t have a working cell phone camera and I’ve only had my new DSLR for a couple of weeks. We’ll see how it comes together.

I know I say it all the time, but I create for some amazing designers. I am in awe week after week of the beautiful stuff that they come up with. This week is no exception.

Did someone say Summer?

At the end of the day tomorrow, it will officially be summer vacation! Can’t I get a WooHooo! In case you didn’t know, teachers are wayyy more excited about it than the students ha! The last couple of weeks have been kind of crazy, hence my lack of posting, but I’m going to try to do some catching up. Two of the three children have had birthdays come and go. A turned 23 *gasp* and M turned 19. How in God’s name do I have children who are so old? We went out to dinner on both occasions, only a few days late on the oldest because he was away with National Guard duties. In addition to that my granddaughter graduated from Kindergarten and also had a dance recital that we’ve attended. Check out my instagram if you want to see photos of any of the above.

Before I get to sharing scrapping stuff, I just have to take a minute to confess a parenting fail. I was watching Forrest Gump last night with M and her boyfriend and it came to the part where Forrest is on the Dick Cavett Show with John Lennon. BF (who is 20) says, “What did John Lennon do?”, to which M replied, “Wasn’t he in a band or something?”. Where did I go wrong that my children do not know The Beatles. As someone said in a comment to me on Facebook, guess they weren’t more popular than Jesus after all.

Ok…on to scrappy business. I am so totally stoked. I have just recently acquired 2 guest spots that I am over the moon about. One is for Scooty’s Designs at Pickleberry Pop. If you haven’t seen her stuff, you must check it out! And the other is for Little Butterfly Wings at The Lily Pad. Omgosh, I have been a fan of hers for soooo long.  You’ll see pages with their stuff in my long list of layouts, since I am so far behind. And hopefully I’ll get all caught up on Project Life in the next few days.

Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:

I think that’s it for today! Hopefully with more time on my hands, I’ll be back more often. 🙂

Happy Memorial Day

 I hope everyone is having tons of fun with cook-outs, family, and friends! And I hope that everyone takes a moment to remember why we have this day and think of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Not much going on here today. R is working night shift, so he will be sleeping most of the day. C and I went out for ice cream and shakes yesterday and I got all the chores done, so I’m hoping to relax with the sun and a good book.  I have been trying to get through Allegiant since the fall! I also have a bit of paper work to do, but I’m going to enjoy the day as much as possible! Ribs are marinating for the grill later! M is gone to Pigeon Forge with her BF and his family for the weekend and A is on a mission with the National Guard for 2 weeks.

I did get a bit of scrapping done amidst the crazy last week. The designers I CT for never cease to amaze me with their creations!
