Online Crop

On Friday night, I participated in an online crop over at Pick of the Patch. Leah and Heather(who has updated her blog) skyped with me while doing this layout. I only lasted long enough to complete this one and then I had to go to bed. I stayed up too late on Thursday night. This was a challenge to use 1 sheet of cardstock, 2 photos, 3 patterned papers, 4 ribbons, 5 flowers and 6 brads.

One Little Word

A new site, One Little Word, just started today with their first challenge. There are some awesome girls on their design team, some of which have blogs I frequent. The challenge word was "GO". As I looked through some pictures, I found two of Daniel teaching Annessa to ride her bike. Immediately, "Letting Go" popped into my head. As I went through my paper and some of the new products I purchased on NSD, I found the HS clock overlay. So perfect for what I wanted to do. So here it is:

Some Layouts...

So here are some of the layouts I've done lately. The first one is from last weekend...it's the ONE layout that I got completed over the NSD weekend.
Next is a layout that I did for a challenge on the Unpubbed website. The challenge was to do a layout about an object that you see in your house daily and what it means to you.
This layout was for the Scrapjack #8 Stephanie Howell. You can go to their website to see the target "jack".
Tonight I did two layouts while talking to Leah, Jamie and Heather using Skype. If you have never heard of Skype or have never tried it....it is Awesome! We were able to 4-way chat with each other just as clear as a bell! And it was all free! Enjoyed doing all these layouts...hope you enjoyed seeing them. :)

Whatta Weekend!

Have you ever had a weekend that was just so packed full of stuff...especially fun stuff? Well, this was one of those weekends for me. We had a little scrapbooking mixed with a bit of baby shower and some more scrapbooking, a little roadtrip fun, some people-watching at the mall, a little more scrapbooking, some surprise birthday stuff and I wrapped it all up with yet another baby shower! How's that for fun and exciting?! I bet you are just dying for me to fill you all in, aren't you?
Friday night was our monthly crop get-together. We also planned to have a surprise for our friend Amy while we were there. It was so funny because when she came in we hollered "Surprise" but she thought we were just being silly. Moments later it hit her that all those gifts were actually for her. We had a good time doing that for her and of course, we always have a good time scrapping! We got us an updated picture with all of our gang that have purchased the ATG 700. Don't we all look so....uhh....crazy cool with our guns?We had a great time chatting and doing a little bit of scrapping too!

We got up early to leave for Birmingham on Saturday morning. With it being National Scrapbook Day, we decided to take a road trip to the Scrap Etc. store that was having such a great sale. We got there early enough to be one of the first 25 in and got this cool scrap apron.Got some good deals! Can't wait to use it all.After shopping there, we found our way over to Scrapbook Mania where our blogging buddy, Cheryl is on the DT. Cute store and such nice people. She took pics of us and said that we might end up on there website....but we didn't. :)

We ate lunch at the Galleria and enjoyed our time together talking and doing a little people watching. We were taking our time getting home because not only was this a fun scrapbooking trip for us gals, it was also a way to keep our friend Amy busy while her husband finished the decorating for her 30th Surprise Birthday Party. We pulled in and she was truly suprised! Wow...what a responsilbility to pull something like that off! I was so nervous and so glad when it was all over. It's hard to keep secrets like that.

And then on Sunday night we had another baby shower for a lady in our church. So it was a weekend of cake, scrapping and lots of fun! I'll try to get back on here to show you some more pics of my layouts I did complete....although I think I only did one!

I am WAY behind on my blog reading! I hope to get the chance tonight or in the morning. Don't go anywhere....I'm on my way over to read and comment! :)
