First Day of School

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

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!
