A few things

Well here are a few things I've been able to do. Nothing big just some quick fun stuff. I have really enjoyed playing with some of my stash lately. It's like it all became new to me again. I also did my first sports page. My son has been playing for about two years but this is my first layout of it. I plan on starting an entire book just for his football career. Thanks for stopping by.

a mini and more

So it's always fun getting goodies in the mail. Especially when they are scrap related. But this wasn't just a goodie box. When I tell you there was just goodness overflowing out of this box. THANK YOU KEANDRA!!!!!!! The children went just as crazy as I did when they found out there was goodies in the box for them too. I am not joking when I say since the box has arrived Jeremiah wears his visor every single day. He wears it to football practice and after practice and everywhere in between. Be sure to take note of the Heidi Swapp letters and all the wonderful thickers. I have already started to use some of the stuff in it. Since there is just entirely to much stuff to show it all to you. I will show you the pile and the highlights. The mini album is for the childrens God mother. I don't do many of them but I had fun with this one.

The past week

my family and I have done pretty much "nothing". But alot has happened. I received an email from Mrs. Kelly Goree asking to use my "Park Cutie" layout in the Basic Grey August newsletter. Which I was super excited about and can't wait for. My layout "my dad my friend" was featured in's newsletter. And I have 2 altered art projects published in the July/August issue of Scrap n Art Magazine. My friend Keandra is sending me a box of scrappy goodness. Which I can't wait to receive. This girl has amazing talent. She is making her own titles and ladies when I say your gonna want these I mean it. Here is her blog address. Go check it out you won't be disappointed. Myia another scrappy friend is sending me an exciting gift, the rock on love collection by Prima and Adrienne Looman. I am a big fan of her work. And I am looking forward to rocking out this collection, big time. Thanks Myia!! I am having a great scrappy month. I really looking forward to receiving our new DT box from Scrap n Art. I love the team and all the girls are great. Not to mention we get to work with some amazing products and talent. I also met an amazing lady by the name of Vicki from who lives near enough to me. She invited me to be a member of her scrapbooking club and told me about a wonderful new store called "Scrappers Boutique". This store is just toooooo cute. And the owner Cherie is a doll. I went yesterday to crop and had a great time. She has all the newest products and is getting tons more in from CHA. Which you ladies know is this weekend ,right? Anywho, I have a million projects that have been completed with the last month. But you'll have to subscribe to Scrap n Art Ezine to get to see them. So go get your subscription on. LOL, thanks for stopping by!!

life over the past few months

So over the last month and a half my family's life has been crazy busy. My husband prepared to return to school full time, my son Jeremiah started football pratice 4 days a week. I recieved a 17 pound box of scrappy goodness from Scrap n Art Magazine for the Sep/Oct issue. Which you won't want to miss. I have been a scrappin fool since June and I have finally lost my mojo. I luckily didn't lose it until I was about 8 projects away from being done with my DT work. Anywho, my work is complete and I just want to share the last couple of weeks of my life with you all. In the midst of all that has been going on my husband decided we weren't busy enough. So he wanted us to give the house a makeover. For those of you who don't know, we have been living in Texas for a little over a year. For the last 10 years (which is all the years of my adult life) California has been my home. Steven was born and raised in California. We moved to Texas bought, this house and he says now it's time to fix it up. So here are a few before and after photos, and off all the things that have been going on. Well some I will upload a few 4th of July photos later. You know life, and family photo shoots. Oh ladies, draps or no drapes? We still have a lot to do, such as wall hangings, and plants. Thanks for stopping by!!!
