I'm Back: A Sneak Peek & Giveaway


It's been a crazy, fun July. We traveled to Florida, have been getting ahead on school work (getting ahead so we can take a little break when we move), and working on our new house. You can see some of the activities in the weekly double pages I've been scrapping.

It was nice taking a break from the business side of template designing and being able to enjoy scrapping in the free time that I had at the computer. I did have a goal to finish Matthew's Album and that didn't happen, but I'm still slowly, but surely, working on it. I'm not going to give up!

But, I'm back to business, and I have two new template sets for you this week. I think you'll like these for scrapping lots of photos or to do a quick review of your month or week. If you want a chance to win them enter the giveaway below.

I'm glad to be back!

A Variety of Pages


Typically I scrap my weekly double pages on the weekend, and if I have extra scrapping time I will work on Matthew's adoption album. This weekend I made two pages for Matthew's album, the July page for a 2016 Calendar I'm working on, and an extra (just for fun page) for a challenge over at Scrap Orchard. If you include my weekly double pager, I scrapped a total of 6 pages this past weekend. I'd say that's pretty good.

Above is the July page for the 2016 Calendar. I'm loving Juno Design's Everyday Life kits for these calendars. And I just can't wait to print this calendar for my mom....I might even get one for myself.

To get these pages done for Matthew's Album I kept them nice and simple...which I always end up loving anyway. Plus, with these photos, especially the ones in the page at the top, I really wanted the focus to be on the photos themselves.

And this page was created for a fun challenge over at Scrap Orchard. We were supposed to scrap the top 5 of 2015 (so far). I thought it might be difficult at first, so many great memories this year, but once I started going through my pictures I new instantly what I was going to choose.

It was a great scrapping weekend. I sort of fit it in between all the normal weekend activities, but I mostly scrapped at night. I'm hoping this weekend will produce as many pages!

So, I'm curious. When do you mostly do your scrapping? Weekends, nights, mornings, in-between?
For me it's almost always fitting it in around weekend activities. I just can't seem to squeeze it in during the week.

2015 Week 28: Work, Play, Repeat

Week 28, and I just realized that 2015 is half way over! The time does fly. This week was filled with lots of work (school and new house) as well as a lot of play time. We met friends at the park, went to the pool (no pics of that - I was too focused on keeping track of my kids) and an afternoon at the lake. Oh, and we took a day trip to Chapel Hill for an audiologist appointment. Matthew's CI is working great. He went from being able to hear at 90 dB (profound loss - pretty much not hearing anything) to hearing between 35-40 dB with his CI ear. Our goal is for him to get to 20dB. Hopefully we'll get there by our appointment next month. Not sure if you wanted an update, but there it is.

Okay, enough of that. Here's a closer view of my layout for week 28.

Look at how long Lydia's hair is? I love it. And yes, that' why I included that picture in this week's page.

Week 27: 3 Pictures of Me?

I don't know what happened this week, but I didn't take a single picture with my camera, and I only took a couple with my phone (this could be because my phone is very moody lately and sometimes it doesn't want to work). Thankfully my hubby snapped a lot of photos and my SIL even snapped a photo for me this week. The result is that this week's page has 3 photos of me. I'm not too thrilled with that, but I know my kids might enjoy it when they grow up. Look, there's our crazy mom running one of her races! My kids do a good job of cheering me on though, and I love to see their smiling faces at the end.

Beside the race we worked on our house a little more, did school work, worked a lot, or maybe it just seemed like a lot since last week we were on vacation. Either way it's always a fun week when I get to do it with my family.



Hope you all had a fun week even if it was filled with lots of work!
