Some Scrappyness

I am so glad to be feeling a bit back to my normal self. My enerygy level keeps picking up and I haven't been sick quite as much. And I have even had the urge to be creative and scrap some (Thanks to Leah)! I did a couple layouts on Thursday night and then some on Friday morning. Here are the two I did on Thursday.I thought that maybe scrappin some pictures of snow would help cool things off since it has been at least 100 degrees everyday for the past week. This was the biggest snow we had back in January...not much huh?And then this layout was from October 2006 when our ladies at church went to the beach for a retreat. I love going out to eat at all those wonderful seafood restaurants.

Here are my Friday layouts. I experimented some using 8.5 x 11 paper and I really liked it. It's been a while since I have done any of the challenges, so I thought I'd try to do some.The above layout was using the Pencil Lines Sketch #46. And this one was from the OLW challenge to use the word Balance.And then finally this was one of the Scrapjack dares. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

I used kits to do all of these layouts. Mostly used my July and August kits from Sweet Pea Scraps. I got so much in them, I still have a ton to use! I also used some stuff from SiStv kits.

Happy 12th

Happy 12th!

Yesterday marked 12 years that Daniel and I said our "I Do's"! I can't believe how quickly time flies. I'd love to have all those pictures scanned in from over the years to give you a great walk down memory lane, but I just don't. I will show you this layout again that I did a while back. It has a picture of us from our wedding and then one from my birthday last December. We had a great date on Saturday night....No Kids! We went out to eat and it was very nice. He doesn't usually get over here to read my blog, but I'd like to tell him again Happy Anniversary and that I love him so very much! He's the best!In other news, Friday night Crop was a lot of fun! I had some sinus stuff going on but it didn't stop me from getting out. And let me just say......I loved working with those kits from Sweet Pea Scraps! It made it so easy to get some layouts completed. And speaking they are for you to see. I'm currently working on October 2006 and then I am trying to do some from 2007 as well so I don't feel so behind. The first two are from Oct. 06 and the last three are from Jan. 07.Hope you all have a great week!

Feeling Scrappy

I have not scrapped since our last monthly crop on July 6. This is so unusual for me because I normally do at least a page or two each week. But when you have next to no energy, something has got to go. And for me, it has been scrapping, along with cleaning, laundry, blogging....just about all my normal daily activities. But, last week I have began to start feeling more like myself. I'm trying to get caught back up with my chores. And, I had the chance to get online with Leah and scrap a little last Thursday ( it was actually the week before). Nevermind that I am just now getting it posted. It took me a while to figure out what to do first. But like riding a bike, it all came back to me. I was able to do two pages, mostly with my kits from SiStv. Here they are (sorry so blurry):And then last week, I went online hunting for a new kit to purchase. I found this one that I really liked from Sweet Pea Scraps:
When I sent in my order, I got an email asking if I wanted the July or the new August kit. I told her that I wanted this one...the July kit and didn't even know what the August kit looked like. So she sent me an email back with a link to show me:And I so totally fell in love with it too. Those are my colors! So I went ahead and signed up for the 3-month membership and she shipped both of them to me. I got them on Friday and I love them. I am so into kits now. Makes it so easy to scrap.

And this just in! Leah and I signed up for a couple of classes over at Simply Southern Scrapbook Convention which is coming to town the first weekend in October. How fun!

This Friday night is our monthly crop and I can't wait! Guess I'm feeling scrappy again!
