Almost Done!!!

There are only 2 hours left of school tomorrow morning!

I am excited, happy, tired, worried and sad all at the same time.

So excited for the summer plans we have; happy there are no more lunches, happy I don't have to go back and forth to school anymore; tired just thinking of all the things I need to do right now to get ready for 'stuff'; worried about entertaining the kids all summer; and finally sad as my kids are growing up sooo fast!

Next year I will have no one home with me during the day anymore! (I am VERY excited about that - and I feel a tiny bit guilty over that excitement...........

k, over the guilt now!!! lol)

I will probably do more volunteer time, that makes me happy. :)

Last week on The Inspired Scrappers blog, our assigment was a sketch. Here is the sketch and my sample;

Supplies; Magenta, October Afternoon, Nestabilities, EK Success, Cuttlebug

If you have a chance, play along with this sketch, would love to see what you do!

This week on The Inspired Scrappers blog, our challenge is to 'Scraplift'. I am working on mine right now, pop in Friday to see all the samples!

as always thanks for stopping by!

Bo Bunny Roughin It

Created this mini album with Bo Bunny's awesome Roughin It line and Piggy Tales Barn Door album. These albums are great! If you are a mini album maker and LOVE to use chunky embellishments; you gotta get one of these! The way they are made, they allow for so much depth to each page!

I am teaching this class at BC Scrapbooking Crop for Kids, coming up October 1-3rd in Abbotsford. I love that %100 of the class fees are going directly to Childrens Hospital.
Check out the site to see all the classes being offered that weekend!
Hope you had a great Tuesday!

Happy Monday to you!

Wow we have been BUSY! No moments to spare even. Okay, actually I had 10 minutes outside by myself yesterday morning, just before leaving for church. lol

One of the big highlights was Kimmee's graduation. I am so proud of her. Now the next stage of life begins.

Then yesterday I had 100lbs of strawberries to deal with! My mil and fil came out to help. We had a great assembly line going and had it all dealt with in no time!
Yummy! A freezer full of strawberries!!

Today I am doing laundry and starting to pack for camping.
Enjoy your day!

A picture is worth..........

A picture is worth a thousand words..........................and this one especially!

Just came across it in my pictures and had to share.

I think Kolton asked Danny to look underneath and see if there was a wasp nest; so Danny just grabbed the front and lifted. Yep he is strong like that. No idea why he is grabbing his head, maybe he is thinking, or maybe he thought there was a bug on his head..............but it sure made the photo funny!
Kinda like Danny was looking under the 'hood' to see why the go cart wasn't working, but forgot that there was still a passenger in it. lol

Oh boys, gotta love them!

Good Monday Morning

Yahhhh it's Monday!

I know, that sounds crazy right!? It is just that we had such a busy weekend, Monday brings some quiet time for me. aahhhh
The kids are back in school, hubby is at work and I am here with just 1 little one and a pile of laundry! lol

Friday I was taken out for lunch for my birthday by a friend and we did some shopping till we had to pick up the kids. Then hubby came home and we went out for dinner for my birthday. And it was funny cause there was a lady there that looked familiar to me, but I couldn't place her. Turns out she was a fellow scrapbooker and also not sure who I was. lol Scrapbookers, we are everywhere! lol
Anyways, Saturday was scrapbook work, weeding and then a 40th birthday party for a friend. It was a 70's theme, and boy did everyone look awesome! We had a great time.
Sunday was up and off to church, then grocery shopping and off to a 4th birthday party.
Hubby and I were so tired last night, we just sat and watched 2 movies and headed to bed. Too tired to do anything else.
So today, Monday, brings some quiet for me. aaaahhhhhh

I will be doing laundry and cleaning house!! And of course scrapbooking somewhere in there!

Here is a page I did for The Inspired Scrappers blog; the challenge last week was wedding.

Most of all the supplies were from my Scrapbooking Fanatics DT kit. LOVE the banners, the smooch spritz, blossoms and bling!

And I added my new FAV embellishment; FABRIC! I matted the photos in a nice soft white material.

I already has this layout on my desk when I stumbled across this new site; Color Combos Galore I suppose it is not new, just new to me. Anyways the colours were totally what I was working with so I played along. Check them out, seems like a great site and great people!

Well my quiet time is over, I have a hungry little man and laundry machines beeping at me; must go answer them!

Have a great Monday and as always, thanks for stopping by!

My 1st class is up....

Well I can finally start sharing some of the work I have been crazily getting done! :)

October 1 - 3rd, 2010 is the next BC Scrapbooking Crop for Kids. I am teaching 3 classes that weekend and here is the first one.
It is sponsored by Scrapbook Parade and The Memory Workshop Scrapbook Company

While the crop is sold out, I think you can still register for a class pass. That means you can attend the event and take some classes, you just won't have a crop seat.
You can see more details of this class here:
My Minds Eye Double Pagers
Following this link will also allow you to see all the other amazing classes being offered that weekend. (some are still being loaded, so check back often)
The BEST thing about the classes, is 100% of the money goes directly to Childrens hospital!!! AMAZING!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
