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.
