First Day of School

I am addicted to clouds lately. I don't know why, but I just can't stop using them.

Friday, November 27, 2009

OK...Last One!

I've been busy this week. I finally got around to using the Crate Paper I got from Hilary's store for my birthday! I love this paper. It's so thick and cute!

More Scrap stuff!

I went to Archiver's Wednesday after work! It was fun...but what was I thinking? Traffic was such a mess the day before Thanksgiving! It took me 2 hours to get from Buford to Carnesville. This was my bargain of the day!! I got a pack of Basic Grey Urban Prairie for $8.40. (Reg. $11.99 - 30% coupon (yay coupons! lol)) For 34 sheets of BG. It didn't come with the usual letter stickers or embellishment stickers...but it does have 2 sheets of the whole collection. Yay me! Right?

Scrap, Scrap, Scrap!!

I love you a Latte. Ha, isn't that cute? lol I saw that this month Treasured Scrapbooking gallery this month and I had to steal it. (Thank you Aymee)

Another Circle Journal!!

These things are so much fun. I have really enjoyed seeing so much creativity thrown in these things! Such inspiration. I believe I only have two more journals left and our circle will be complete. I can't wait to see my book again!!!

This month my topic was to scrap a funny story. Ha! Being the goofball I am I had lots of stories to choose from. Taylor enjoyed reading about how she publicly humiliated me. lol I need to scrap this story for myself now.

Journaling reads:

Having 4 kids I should be used to horrible mishaps, right? I have been embarrassed many times, but never so bad as that day at Racetrak, a local gas station. Taylor had just turned 3, and she had to use every public restroom we drove by...I swear! No big deal. We pumped gas then went inside to go potty. She went, then it was my turn. I was sitting on the toilet, midstream, when Taylor decided to LEAVE! Like lightning...BAM...she slammed the door all the way loud every person in the gas station turned to see what the commotion was. The door...just out of my reach...stayed open. I was horrified...sitting on the toilet with at least a half a dozen people staring at me as my baby ran out the open gas station door. I was screaming, "Taylor get back here, right now!!" as my dignity was being flushed down the toilet. The worst part was afterwards I had to wait in line to pay for my gas. It took me a year or more before I was able to go back in that station again. ACK!

Circle Journal

It was hard, so hard to pick just one book that I call my favorite! I have loved so many! I settled on my favorite series! I'm so proud I did this page. Looking for pictures I found that there have been 4 more left behind books added to the series! Now I have to read them!!

Scrapping Regular Lately! WooHoo!

Having fun! This challenge was to use a tree and fall colors. Had some great inspiration. I used some scrap Chipboard for cardstock and some scrap SEI. I think it's SEI anyway. It's hard to guess when it's scraps.

More challenges!

I am having so much fun! I so wish I could take a day or two off work to stay at home and scrap some of the fabulous challenges at Treasured Scrapbooking. They are having a crop this week loaded up with another, I think 8 challenges. Plus the normal 10 from the design team. That makes 18 challenges! Tons of inspiration! Here is what I did last night.

This was Chloe at the very beginning of Summer when we were camping up in Helen. She is a mess.

What a weekend!

Wow! I can't believe it's Monday already. I need an extra few days off to reflect and ponder my fabulous weekend! We went on a weekend retreat hosted my my church's women's ministry team (WoW - Women of Worth). We were blessed to spend Saturday evening and Sunday morning with the most beautiful and talented women of Beloved. Oh, the light these women have is so inspiring. Their faith just glows. Not only can they sing (and wow can they sing! I have goose bumples just reminiscing!) but they teach a fabulous lesson. I learned so much about myslef and realized I'm not the only wierdo with all these looney personality traits. It was so interesting to learn how our traits go hand in hand with each other and how our compatibility meshes with others around us. I have so much more to much to work on as well. I can't wait to see these women again. What a blessing. I can only pray that every women would get the oportunity to hear these women sing. Kim, the tall blonde..oh my word!! That woman is hilareous!! She will leave you in stitches. I laughed so many times this weekend until I had tears in my eyes. We had so much fun!

Thursday, November 5, 2009

If you enjoy challenges, I have found the forum for you! Treasured Scrapbooking. This month they have 10 seperate challenges going a sketch challenge. FUN!

This challenge was to scrap something sports related. Yeah, maybe marching band isn't exactly sports...but it is enjoyed at a sporting event! Close enough! lol We are so excited to have an excuse to go to all the FCHS ballgames!!! We really have fun. Even Taylor and Chloe can't get enough! Go Lions!

Scrapping Again!

A long long time ago I was laying in bed and couldn't sleep. Like any good scrapbooker, I was thinking about a page I wanted to do for Chloe. In the middle of the night I got up and scribbled some notes and filed them away in my scrapbook desk...never to see them again! lol Well last weekend I went to scrap and I just couldn't. The mess was too overwhelming. SO, instead of scrapping I spent the entire day cleaning and reorganizing my small (giggle) scrapbooking collection. Low-and-behold...there where this cute little note about some of Chloe's silliness. So here's the LO about my little comedian.

Journaling says:

10 things about Chloe
1. Her shoes are always on the wrong feet.
2. She is obsessed with "orange un cool buses." (Orange one school buses)
3. She loves "slip slops." (flip flops)
4. Still won't sleep all night.
5. Llama Llama Red Pajama is her favorite book
6. Loves watching Dora
7. Keilan Locklear and Gavin Willis are her boyfriends.
8. She knows she is a princess.
9. She <3's her Yammi!
10. Wants to "hold your hair" when she gets sleepy.

Scrap Whispers - Challenge 49

This week was Telah's turn to set the challenge. In honor of Halloween and all the candy we are going to be collecting over the next week she has asked us to make our page candy related. Either scrap about candy or use a candy wrapper as inspiration.

This was not hard for me to find inspiration. After all, I do have 4 kids. Who likes candy more than kids? lol Right now my youngest is completely obsessed with Starburst. When I say she thinks she has to have some every day, I mean it. I should have included on my page that her pet name for Starburst is "my scarbies".

Here is my page:

This is the last weekly challenge for this round of Scrap Whispers. Stay tuned next Sunday for the big reveal. I am so excited. This unfortunately is my last round on the Scrap Whispers design team. :-( I'm really going to miss it, but I just don't have time right now to keep up. Maybe once the holidays are over Georgina will let me try out again some time. I hope so.

Circle Journal Page

I have had so much fun with this whole circle journal thing. I love looking at all the pages that other people have made!! This has been my favorite topic though!! I love this book. It was so hard choosing what to put on my pages. I stuffed it with as much fun as I could. There is still so much I could have added though.

Scrap Whispers - Challenge 47

This was hard!! These ingredient challenges are always a doosie for me. I kind of messed up on the journalling tag. I rather misunderstood it until I read it over on the blog. Yikes!! You can't do anything with me I guess.

Sarah's Challenge:

This week we have a very specific challenge for you, set by Sarah from our Design Team! You have to use the following "ingredients" on a layout:

1 piece of 12x12 cardstock
1 piece of 5x7 patterned paper
1 piece of 3x9 patterned paper
1 piece of 8x8 patterned paper (all the patterned paper has to be different)
1 single journalling tag
letter stickers (any kind or style)
5 flowers

Here is my LO:

I can't stand the way lumpy 12X12 LO's stitch together. :-( I wish I knew how to get rid of that shadow.

Scrap Whispers - Challenge 46

This weeks challenge was brought to you by Helen:

Have a little reminisce about your childhood, or maybe your teen years. Is there something - a place, a person, an activity, a TV programme, a piece of music - that really brings it all back? It could be a park or playground you went to, an item of clothing you coveted for months and nagged your parents to buy for you, a film that really caught your imagination...

BUT it must be something you don't actually have a photo of! Find a photo online, cut up a magazine, use a pic of your kids doing something similar and create a comparison. If none of the above appeals to you, don't use a photo at all.

The journaling's important for this one, so make sure you add something about your memory - it can be hidden if you'd prefer.

Shew! That was a fun project!! It was the picture part that knocked me for a loop. I had no idea it was going to be so hard to find a photo of a blue jean vintage record player. lol I'm tickled with the one and only picture I did manage to find though!! lol

Here is my LO:

Scrapped ALL day!!

I am so spoiled. I feel like it right now anyway. lol I took the day off work and went and spent the whole entire day with Hilary at Southern Gardenia. OK, so I was there from 11-8, less about an hour and a half to get the girls from school and take them home...and I still only got 4 pages scrapped. Hil., she worked on invitations, unloaded some boxes of scrap stuff, loafered around the store and watched TV for a while and she still got 7 pages done. :-( She makes me feel so unbelievable slow!!!

So proud and excited!

Chris will kill me for posting this picture. (hehe) I just don't care, I am so proud. This is from Tuesday at their Northeast Georgia Marching Exhibition. She just loves band and that makes me so happy. I'm glad she is busy with something.

They got some really great and exciting news Tuesday! The Franklin County Marching Pride was recommended by the governor, Sonny Purdue, to represent Georgia in the 2010 annual Independence Day Parade in Washington D.C. How exciting is that?!?! My baby is going to be marching in front of the White House in front of hundreds of thousands of people. I'm just welling with pride I am so proud of her.

Sunday, September 27, 2009

We just went and met with our pastor, Chris about Taylor getting baptized. Of course I cried. Taylor told me I embarrassed her. :-( I just can't help myself. When it come to matters of faith I am a blubbering fool. I am proud of her. It will be a few months before they have another baptism, they haven't scheduled an exact date. Taylor was upset about that. She said she is too excited to wait that long. She wants everyone to know she has Christ in her heart.

Saturday, September 19, 2009

A cute little 6X6 mini album I just made! Fun!!! I love the colors. I wish I had been able to take some good pictures of it. I have LOST the stupid charger to my camera battery. Can you believe that? I can't even remember where I last charge the battery at. I am loosing my mind. I must be. :( I found another one on ebay for $15. I guess it could be worse. I hate being disappointed in myself.

Friday, September 11, 2009

Good Day! I hope everyone is having a nice Patriots Day. Don't forget to take a minute or two to remember all those treasured lives that where lost on 9/11. It's hard to imagine that it was 8 years ago. I remember the grief and shock I felt that morning like it was yesterday. My prayers are with all those families that lost so much that day.

Thanks for visiting my blog this morning for another Scrap Whispers Blog Hop. We are showcasing the very talented Rosey. (Red Squirrel) She is our Whisper Member of the Month!

I had fun lifting her LO. I love lifting lifts of lifts. I lifted her version of Nilsa's sketch we did in the last round of Scrap Whispers! It was so hard to pick just one thing to lift. Her cards are fabulous! She is an awesome stamper. I'm in awe.

Here is Rosey's LO...isn't that picture amazing? Gorgeous!

Here is my LO! Wow, I changed it a lot, but the sketch is still there...I focused on the fun layers, the scallops, the fibers, I kept the polka dots but I had to leave out the version is already busy enough! lol
