2 Days!!

Is all it took for me to fall off the bloggin' routine! I hope all had a great week! Mine was fabulous and I have so many fun things to look forward to and share with you all! After you've read this post, don't forget to scroll down and pick up the Calendar Topper freebie that Tanya made for everyone using my newest kit.

First off - a sale! A major sale! Everything in my SBB store is 50% off! No coupon code needed! Just go and shop - everything is marked down!

Next, I scrapped again! Not once, but 3 times even! Thanks to my incredible fortunate of being on the most awesome Creative Teams - I got 1 layout done and 2 brag book layouts done too! Heather Roselli has a new kit out called "Win or Lose." It is the perfect kit for scrapping all of those fun Game Nights and favorite games. Here's a layout I did using Missy Strand's template at SSD and Heather's kit.

I am finding it a little hard to look at this layout though - they both look so much bigger now and that was only a year ago! Check out Heather's kit - Win or Lose. It has a wonderful free with purchase deck of cards right now that you don't want to miss out on! Also, if you haven't checked out Heather's team blog. You definitely need to! Lots of goodies and prizes being given away.

Once again the amazing Traci Reed has come out with an incredible kit. I so want to grow up and be Traci! She's years younger than me yet she possesses such incredible talent and wisdom beyond her years. Her kit called "In the Air Tonight" is beautiful! It is totally perfect for so many pictures of Zoey and really all the kids. It is girly but not so much that I couldn't use it with Eli's layouts too. Here is a little brag book page I did using Darcy Baldwin's fabulous Brag Book Templates and Traci's newest goodie!

And another one using Traci's Sunshine Playground and Darcy's templates.

And speaking of Darcy Baldwin! I consider myself a very lucky girl to call Darcy a friend and to have had the opportunity to spend time with her and and wonderful boys in person! Sooo, when it came to creating chore charts for the kids - I immediately grabbed Darcy's chore charts and went to town. If you are looking for a chore/responsibilities chart to start the school year off right - Darcy has the best. Here are Zoey's and Aidan's charts - both using kits by Traci!

If you are still with me a big Thank You! This was a far longer post than I intended. It's just that there are so many great things being put out there right now by my digi friends I had to brag about them!

Please say Hello! and let me know you stopped by. I am off to take a shower and then I think we are going to go bowling again. A new family hobby! Have a great day! Play hard and make great memories! And thanks again for stopping by! I really appreciate you!

It happened again!!!

Yep, I scrapped! And I designed! :) Holy cow - was there a full moon yesterday?

Does anyone have tips on organizing kids rooms and getting the kids to keep it that way? Inexpensive ones? I don't understand how I can spend hours cleaning the kids rooms, organizing them and then within a week you would have absolutely no idea I had ever been in there. We bought some closet storage "solutions" this weekend because we simply had to do something. Our downstairs hall closet was becoming known as the "Zoobomafoo" closet. For those of you who do not have young children or young children who love that show - Martin and Chris have a closet that when they open everything from balls to animal food falls out of knocking them down. It's funny in the show but not in real life!!! But back to the real topic - how do I inspire Aidan and Zoey to put their toys back where I have now put them???

Well I have to run - one of my clients has already emailed me a long list of things to do this morning. But before I do, I want to show you the layout I did yesterday using Traci Reed's fabulous new kit Blue Skies and Flutterbies.

Those photos are of Zoey after a soccer game last year. She's so pretty (if I say so myself) and even after running around in the Texas heat for an hour.

Oh my now we have progressed to screaming from upstairs and another email! I must go! I'll be back tomorrow with a look at Maria LaFrance's and my new kit coming out tomorrow called "Gabrielle" and a birthday wish for Eli!

Thanks soooo much for stopping by! I really appreciate it and love reading your comments! :)

2 Days in a Row!! New Record

Anyone there? I know at least one person read my blog yesterday. Thanks Tammy! I owe you a pm and I'll do that today!

We had a fun family day yesterday! We bowled, had lunch, did a little shopping, had ice cream and watched a movie at home. I have a cute photo of Eli bowling with his paci in his mouth that I'll have to share tomorrow.

I scrapped! I scrapped! I worked on a layout using Heather Roselli's fabulous party kit yesterday. She designed the kit to celebrate her 1 year Anniversary at Sweet Shoppe. It is a fabulous kit and was perfect for Eli's 2nd Birthday photos.

It is hard to believe that we will be celebrating his 3rd Birthday on Tuesday already. He's grown so much in the last year. Of course he has!!

Anyways, we are organizing closets today and cleaning house. Hopefully we will also go swimming as it is supposed to be 102 here today. Yikes!

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment and say Hello!

It's been forever!

Hi everyone! Remember me???

First things first! Thank you to my wonderful Creative Team who has managed to continue to post here on my blog despite my complete disappearance from the digital scrapping world. Without them I think everyone would have totally forgotten about my designs and me! Thank you girls!

I have been busy busy busy trying to start a Virtual Assistant business. So far it has been going fairly well but I am so busy that I don't have time to do very much scrapping or designing. I am excited though that things are starting to settle down and I am getting some time to do both. In fact, before my family and I run off for a fun family day, I wanted to stop and share at least one new thing I have up at Polka Dot Potato.

This fun little mini kit is called "Boys Room Mini" and is only .99 cents! Not only is it a steal but it is super cute! You can pick it up here.

Well I told the kids I was going to kidnap them today and have a fun family day. So we'll see what kind of fun we can find on this ridiculously hot August day in South Texas. I suspect we are either going to go bowling, mini golfing, swimming and/or all of the above. I want to make use of the weekend to be with them now that I am a WAHM.

Have a great day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
