Good afternoon!

I did this page for one of Back Porch Memories monthly challenges. Michelle's Thankful/Grateful recipe challenge. The ingredients were the word "grateful or thankful" a button, floss, and a die cut. I used The girls paperie pp, half of a MME diecut, a prima flower, bobunny and my little shoebox letter stickers...and Colossians 3:15 for journaling.

Isn't she just the prettiest thing?? This was 5 minutes before she snuck off the dock and went for a swim. It was 60* out, but she sure didn't care! The pps are adornit with some K & Co. and Bo Bunny border pieces.

Another fun back to school page. I used Basic Grey and October Afternoon papers. Some Pink Paislee Back to School rubons, and Bayberry Cottage clear stickers. The letter stickers are Thickers, Hiedi Swapp CB and Target $ spot letters.

I'm finally starting to get my scrapping mojo back. I don't know what happened there for a little while but I just couldn't get in the mood to scrap!

This was with some scraps left over from my October SO PP and BB kit! These papers are so much fun.

Taylor's pretty face is just covered in freckles. Chloe has always called them sprinkles and it's kind of just caught we all call them sprinkles. I used Green at Heart Basic Grey pps.

And then this last one I've done was the end of the first day of school. Taylor was so happy and Chloe was so exhausted! OA pps in this page!

I don't have ANY vacation I'm just making do. :-( The challenge was to use predominately primary colors. Easy enough!

Simply Obsessed - Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Happy Birthday Simply Obsessed! Celebrating 3 years of Scrappy Awesomeness! I hope you are enjoying our Blog Hop this morning! You should have come to me from Brianna's blog, Jill of all Tradez ?? If you didn't and you just got supper lucky to stumble on all of our birthday fun, you can start at the beginning of the hop at the Simply Obsessed Blog!!!

I wanted to make something special for the blog hop. Something birthday related that might be a little unique? I racked my brain until I finally desided I needed to make a Perpetual Birthday Calendar! After I put it all together I decided that, that I will Remember WHEN I need to make my peeps some cards, I also need to know WHERE to mail them. lol So I added an address book too! It was so simple. It spent more time typing up the calendar and address pages than it did to make the book. It's made with October Afternoon papers and letter stickers, some American Craft Thickers and Foofala buttons. Oh, and the font for the tabs is one of my favorites, it's called Digs my Heart. (Thank you Ronda)

Well there you have it! I hope you have been inspired. Happy Scrapping and off you go to Shana's place! I hope you enjoy our Birthday Blog Hop! Happy Scrapping!

Here is a list of all the Blog Hop Participants if somehow you have gotten lost or might have missed a page along the way.

More Scrapping!!

It was fun today sitting at the kitchen table with my family as I scrapped. Christine, Daddy and Justin played on their phones/laptops while I scrapped. I was starting to think my kitchen table wasn't nearly big enough. lol It was so nice. The most fun I've had scrapping in a long time.

These Sassafrass, Nerdy Bird papers couldn't be any more perfect for Christine and these pictures!

July's Simply Obsessed Reveal!!!

Oh this kit was so much fun!! Come check out what everyone else has done with the kit. You will just love it. Check it out HERE!

Wow, can I just tell you how much I LOVE this kit? I know I'm not alone since the kit has already sold out. But goodness, if you can get your hands on this kit you will be so happy. I know Heather is trying to get together a reorder, so don't hesitate to let her know if you want one!!! I did 3 pages and have tons more goodies I haven't even touched yet. I can't wait to get back with it and play some more!!! It's bright and happy and is just perfect for our summer pictures!!!

Let me show you what I did, I hope I did this kit justice!!

Life with you...

How can you say no to that face? *rofl* It's Chloe during one of her regular drama queen moments. When I showed her the picture, she tried so hard not to smile. You know that look. lol This page is all kit goodies exept for the Kraft CS, the red Target $ spot letter stickers and some buttons from my stash. I am in love with those Niki Riki thickers! I want them in all colors now. So much fun and they are just the perfect size.

Redneck Princess:

Yes, that IS mud on Chloe's face. We had rain for a solid week last month, so my husband had lots of fun mud holes to drive the 4 wheeler through. They had SO much fun and got SO dirty! They had to wash off with the garden hose before they came near the house. Chloe said being a redneck sure was fun.

This is all kit goodies except for the buttons. I can never have enough buttons! lol Even the little black scallops are from the kit....they came from the rub-on packaging! They were just too cute to throw away.

Hello Sunshine:

I love this picture. Chloe is such a nut head.

This page is all kit goodies, right down to the CS. I just love the banner that came with the kit, you could do so much with it! I slapped a little paint on them, covered the tops with pretty paper and stacked them. I loved the dimention it added. This may have been the second or third time I have EVER used a rub on! I couldn't believe it was so easy. The big one, I was just too chicken to put it right on the page. So I put it on white cardstock then cut it out. I believe it would have done just fine to put it right on the page, but I just wasn't confident enough. lol

These pages where so much fun! Thanks for looking!

Come check out my first Design Team Reveal on the Simply Obsessed Blog!

Good morning! This is my first kit reveal and I am just too excited! This kit was so much fun to work with. I have the hardest time finding manly paper that I just love, so this kit was a wonderful surprise. It is gorgeous, the colors are so warm and yummy. The papers are so versatile, I love the mix of gorgeous patterns. I could just keep on and on creating with it.

My first page is of my husband early last spring on top of Mt. Currahee, it's our closest mountain. It's not very big, but it still a nice view and a fun way to spend the afternoon! :D The words on the page and the buttons are mostly Badda Bing chipboard with a few from the Bits A Bella sheet. The title piece is from the Billboards sheet. Love it! Those pieces where so much fun, the possibilities are endless with the wide variety of shapes, words and buttons! I am also in love with those cute little Jenni Bowlin copper stick pins.

My second page is a picture of my husband from last month. You have to scrap the icky along with the good, right? lol I think this might have been our third trip to the emergency room in as many weeks. :-( My poor husband felt like he had been bulldozed. Kidney Stones are NO FUN! The "Never Give Up" circle, the Mr. Tough Guy strip and the journaling dot are from the Bits A Bella paper. The strips underneath the pic are also from that same paper. The word "Not" is the Cosmo Cricket chip letters. I used some Badda Bing chipboard to help it pop a little. The buttons and the little accents are also Badda Bing. The Sun Corral Bazzill is also from the kit. The only thing from my stash is "again" .

This card is the Coastal Blue Bazzill from the kit. I used some of the Basic Gray Capella gummies and gorgeous flowers on here too. The Billboard pp was perfect for my card! The Blue and white pp is from the Bits A Bella paper. The Cosmo Cricket letters worked great for my card too.

With this card I used some stitching and distressed all my edges to give it some texture. The Badda Bings accents where just perfect to complete my simple little Father's Day card!

Well that's all folks, thanks so much for taking the time to look at my work. I just loved working with this kit. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Happy Scrapping!

My Minds Eye

This is MME's fabulous little sketch for Dream Big, Challenge #10. I love their sketches. I always do them, but never post them. (Can you say, "Chicken"?) This page was a lot of fun though, I am so in love with these Quite Contrary pps!! Here is my take:
