Random Thoughts....

* I am so glad work is slowing down a bit for me (at least this week!)

* Soccer season has started and Brendan is so excited (Liv was excited to see some 'old' friends

*Our school board is changing the transporation for our kids and we may have to give up their caregiver we love so much (super bummed here.... :( )

* The scrapping mojo appears to be here/back!

A couple of new layouts:

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketp>(The above layout is a lift from an uber-talented lady whose layouts always inspire me! You can check out Kay Rogers' work at the link on my sidebar. You'll find lots of inspiration for sure!

Looking at the layouts above, I realize I need to start taking photos of them and doing it properly. You can see the scalloped edges and the colours are definately not as vibrant as they are irl. Note to self!

Bed time! have a great day tomorrow. :)

Long weekends = more time for pics!

I haven't been getting much scrapping done this long weekend but I have had my camera out a tons which is just as good sometimes. I am always so happy when Brendan lets me take his picture!! :)
Some faves from this weekend:

And finally, a little note my girl wrote to me while in the car on the way back from Oma's today......love her! :)

I have a couple of layouts to scan but even more layout ideas buzzing around in my brain. I hope to get to all of it very soon!

Enjoy your long weekend!

Well, close enough. ;) It's been one of those weeks and I can't wait for the weekend. It's a busy weekend but at least I'm not at work - enough said. Can't wait to spend some time with the kids.

Scrapping has been my de-stressing therapy this week. Here's another new layout that I started a few weeks ago:
Take care!

....did he get so big?? I love this boy .....

Happy NSD!

To all of my scrapping buddies, I hope you found a little time on this "holiday" to do what you love to do!

Today was a GOOD day. I really enjoyed it. Joe and I were busy with cleaning and stuff but it felt good to get some cleaning done. And the best part is that this weekend, we have nowhere that we have to be. No birthday parties or other committments.....it is so nice and a rarity these days.

We went garage sale-ing this morning. The kids cashed in on some "new" stuff and they were thrilled. We found a lot of good deals (like video games for B's gameboy for $2!). After that, Olivia and I went for a haircut and I got my eyebrows done....feels soooo good. :)

Once everyone was settled for the evening, I decided to do a little scrapbooking and finished three layouts. Doesn't happen too often that I do that many at one time. It was nice to sit at my desk and create.

Have a great day tomorrow!
