Getting Ready for a Crop

I am going away to a weekend crop in 4 weeks and I'm so excited!!  I just finished the last layout from my last crop, just in time to take a whole bunch of new scrapping and scavenger hunt pictures.  Here it is:

Ah, 4 whole days of game and scrapping fun!!  I can't wait!!

Wishing for Summer

It's so much fun to play along with challenge blogs.  I played with Scrap Whispers a while back.  Someone creates a layout, then we take turns scrap lifting each other's layouts.  It was really fun to do too.  Here is the layout I created from one of the other players in the game.

I posted these pics of Tom and Abbie's sandcastle during the summer.  This was really fun to do too. 

Ok, I'm off to work...another super busy day!!

Happy Girl

Who doesn't love the smiling face of a child?  Especially if that smiling face is your child, right?  I found this great sketch on Nuts About Sketches and knew instantly what pictures I was going to use.  Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on it:

I was digging through my older stash of papers and found this collection from K i Company.  I love the brown, pink and green together.  And with a sheet of letters, this was perfect.  Especially since all my Cricut carts are all still MIA.  I added a few other embellishments like a Dear Lizzy flower brad, Jenni Bowlin butterflies and some other misc stuff I found laying around.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!  Hope your day is filled with love, not just today, but every day!!

Niagra Falls - Part 2

So I still don't have my computer back.  But Tom is being really good about sharing his work computer so I can get some stuff done. 

My weekends have been so busy these last couple of weeks I haven't even gotten much scrapping done.  I don't know how you folks get it all done, but I'm jealous!!  I decided I wasn't going to do anything but relax and scrap today.  That is after I do my work laundry for the week, clean the cat box, finish valentine's for Tom and Abbie, update my blog, pack food for work tomorrow and spend some quality time with one very tired and slightly stuffy little girl who is spending the day snuggling in bed.

Hopefully with a few good nights rest she'll be back to normal.

I did manage to get one layout done so far today, but I'll share that with you tomorrow.  For now, here is page two of the Niagra Falls layout from several weeks ago.

It was so cold and dreary out that day.  No sunshine at all.  So I wanted to brighten up the pictures with bright papers...and use up a bunch of scraps.  So that's just what I did.  I really love the red and black together.

Alright everyone, I better go put my clothes in the dryer otherwise I'm wearing jammies to work tomorrow!!

Don't you just hate it when...

Your hard drive crashes and now you have to share a computer with everyone else in the house?  Tom will have to buy me a new one and install it over the next few weeks.  In the mean time, Tom, Abbie and I are using one laptop.  And since Tom uses his for work, we get bumped from time to time.  Abbie's computer needs a little help too, so that will get repaired after mine.  Luckily, we backed up not too long ago, so not much will be lost, if anything.

So, posting will be little a slow this weekend, but I plan on getting some, if not all my layouts from the last week posted. 

Abbie has a friend staying for the weekend so I plan hope to get to the craft room at some point.  I have been feeling extra scrappy lately.

Alright my scrappy friends, I am going to use my very rare afternoon off to hopefully finish reading "The Girl Who Played With Fire".  I started it a while ago and really want to see how it ends.

Have a happy Wednesday!!!
