Nice with a dash of Naughty

I am so excited to share my first Design Team Creation for Scrap that Moment.  I got to create with Nutcracker Sweet from Graphic 45! And I have lots to share!  I am really loving pairing this collection with the WorldWin Kraft cardstock and a little bit of May Arts Jute!  and I especially love posting this "candid" picture of my girls acting silly for all of you to see!

Thankful- day 7

Today I am thankful for my country!  We live in a country where we CAN vote and elect our leaders!  Even if the candidate or resolution we were voting for doesn't win, we still have the right to vote!  I am thankful that so many people were actually interested in this election!  and that so many voted for the first time!  I don't understand people who don't exercise their right to vote.  But the great thing about our country is that is their RIGHT.  Just like it is my right to vote, they have the right to choose not too, neither one of us facing fear of punishment or retaliation!

Thankful -Day 6

I am thankful for my son! He is such a bundle of energy and always keeps us on our toes! He also has the sweetest heart and would offer you his favorite toy (for the most part *wink*) if it would make you smile.  He has learned to control much of his energy during school which is no small feat!  Even though his is out growing being my little boy, he is growing quite nicely into being my young man!

I am Thankful - Day 4

Today I am thankful for my daughter Meagan (and if my other kiddies are reading this there will be a day to each of you as well).  I am thankful She has grown into a beautiful young woman.  She is a great help around the house and chooses good friends.  She also has a great sense of humor and can always make me smile.  In this layout she borrowed my camera to take pictures of her sisters birthday party and managed to take a few pictures of herself.  Meagan also has a tremendous amount of patience with her brother.

Thankful (Days 1,2 & 3)

I have decided this month I am going to post about the things I am thankful that God has provided or sent my way in my life, and since I am already behind goes days 1, 2 and 3.

Day 1:  I am so thankful for my hubby and 21 years of marriage. Most married people know that marriage is not always easy, but it is so worth it!  Love you honey!

Day 2: I sometimes complain about how hectic our family schedule is, each kiddie always having someplace to go. But I am so thankful that we have 3 healthy kids that are able to participate in these activities! 

Day 3: (to quote my cousin Katie...) I'm so THANKFUL to my mother who watches my children so I can go to work at a job that I love!! Without her, life would be so much more difficult. She helps with rides, feedings, and schoolwork!  Mom you rock!!!!!!!!!  Thank you!

Once Upon a Time

Once Upon A Time.   This page was so fun and yet so hard to complete.  It is the only picture I have of my grandparents together.  They divorced before I was born.  All the pictures of my grandpa are with his 2nd wife. I used Little Red Scrapbook's July Kit and a PageMap.  I was so excited when it was chosen as the "Pick of the Week" at StoryTellers.    I was also challenged by an old friend at Scrapbook Heaven to use at least 7 layers on a project and I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A little scrapping

Since you last heard from me we have been through a vacation, another softball season, another baseball season, soccer, football/dance squad, marching band seasons and another whole set of holidays. During this time I started to feel pressure from doing the design team work. I started to only scrap my assignments and nothing ever for me. There was just not enough time to scrap for fun. So I made a decision when to not reapply for my current design team and take some time off. DO I MISS IT??? YES!! but I am loving being able to scrap things for me, the pictures I want when I want, not just the ones that match the kit. So I moved my scrapbook room from one location in the house to another and reorganized and purged tons! and have been creating and having fun and remembering why I got into this hobby in the first place. Here is one of my recent creations.
 I created this for a monthly challenge at Storytellers.  The challenge was to use pastels. I DON'T DO PASTELS.  But this worked and I was happy.  Thanks for looking   :D
