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.

Aren’t those fun!! I love them all. Digi-world is getting geared up for Black Friday and it’s going to be awesome!! And no crowds!! I hope that you all have a great rest of your weekend!! 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.

Newness…

Ummmm, how did it get to be July already? I feel like I blinked and June was gone! If we are accomplishing anything with this summer break, it’s relaxing. We’ve done that very well!

Just stopping by today to share the newness that you can find in the digi-world this weekend. There’s still time to grab them on sale!

I am off to do some organizing on the computer and post updates to my Life in Pockets. I finally got all caught up with that. I hope to get some Planner pics and update that as well. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday and a happy, safe 4th of July!!

Newness and some prayers…

Before I get in to all the amazing new designs that are on sale this weekend, I want to take just a second to ask for prayers for so many people here in the state of WV. 44 of 55 counties are currently under a state of emergency due to devastating flooding in some parts of the state. Last I heard, 20 people are dead and many have lost their homes. It’s so sad. This all happened just an hour or two north of where I live and many are still trapped. Thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.

Now on to some good news. I have quite a few layouts to share for this week. So many amazing kits and collections on sale!

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.

What I did realize is 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. 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:

Just Breathe…

I have that tattooed on my wrist and I look at it often…especially this time of year. I try very hard not to get overwhelmed with all that lies ahead for the next few weeks. I know it will get done, it always does! I’m just looking forward to breathing deeply and maybe relaxing just a bit.

I wanted to swing by and share this week’s layouts before I get behind again. I’m already about 3 or 4 weeks behind on my Life in Pockets, but I’m hoping to work some on that tomorrow evening. We’ll see… But, here are this week’s pages from those amazing designers I have the privilege of creating for….

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.

Happy Saturday!

I love Saturdays, especially the evening after all the chores are done, the house is clean, and I am looking forward to just surfing around and admiring all the beautiful layouts in the galleries.

I thought I’d stop and take a few minutes to come by and share my layouts for this past week. Click on the photos to take you to the shops!!

Just Jaimee’s new templates for this week are awesome!! And inspired by one of my favorite scrappers – MissLoveScraps. I also used the April Storyteller Collection for this one.

Tomorrow, I intend on getting caught back up on my Life in Pockets and get some updated planner pictures. I am wayyy behind on that! Hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!! Peace, out…

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. 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.

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…

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!!
