I think life my life is boring or unexciting - the kids remind me how not true that is! Hehe! And for glamour - well being a SAHM has it all! Yesterday the kids and I had a fun, full day planned. We left the house headed first for the Children's Museum and then for hair cuts, shoe shopping, dinner, ice cream (if they behaved) and last minute school supply shopping. The kids had fun and we all had a great time. The highlight (and I say that most sarcastically) was when my oldest son dropped his pretend police badge in the toilet. Yes, of course, it has to be the toilet he had just used. Ah yes, the glamour and humor of scooping his police badge out of the toilet. Fun!

I could go on and on with tid bits of fun like this. But I'll spare you all!

My CT has been working with my new kit (see post below) and I am so excited to share with you these layouts:

This layout is by Neisha (aka Lavendar)! Isn't it lovely! I love how she used the frame, the photo grouping and the flowers. Beautiful Neisha! My good friend and team member Char did this wonderful layout (below) with a picture of her Grandmother using Grammie's Apron too!

The last one I am going to show you today is by Guest CT member Jamie (aka azrood)! How seriously cute is her daughter?

Thanks to my wonderful CT for allowing me to share these layouts with you! Just a note - I am leaving the contest open for another day - so, please leave a comment in the post below too and you'll be entered to win the Americana kit! Your chances are pretty good now!
I appreciate you stopping by! The cable guy just got here so I'm going to run before I lose this post! I'll be blog hopping later! Have a great day!

New Kit, a little contest and more!

Good morning! It's been way too long since I blogged so today I am going to do it up big - I have a new kit to show you, new layouts and a contest! Lots of fun stuff!

On a personal note, I can't believe that Aidan starts 1st Grade next week. Wow! He's really grown into a goofy boy this Summer. He's such a nut - filled with goofy smiles, expressions, dances and more. I hope that goofiness doesn't translate to him getting into trouble at school. He had no trouble last year but he is so much more animated now.

Zoey girl is living it up! We decided it was time to give her her own room and she is thrilled. I am in the process of decorating it and I am having the greatest time taking advantage of all the great altered projects at Traci Reed's Team blog and Dani Mogstad's Girl Talk. Zoey is also excited because she has a new bunny! His name is Bun Bun and he is sooo cute and furry!

Eli turned 2 on the 12th. We had a family birthday party with fun bright red cupcakes and lots of Diego presents. It looked like Diego mania in our living room.

I am so lucky to be on the best CT's! I've been a bad blogger and haven't kept up so instead I created a slide show with many of my recent layouts using kits by Traci Reed, Dani Mogstad and LaWanna Desjardin.

I am very excited to share with you my newest kit! After more than a month away from designing - it felt great to get back into it. My newest kit is titled "Grammie's Apron" and you can see it at the top of the post. It is available at Scrapbook-Bytes. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and hope you like it too! My CT is working away with it and I hope to share some layouts with you that they have done with it soon!

Okay, now for the contest! Did you know that the Scrapbook-Bytes Design Team puts together an incredible monthly megakit available for only $5.00? They are available here. I participated in the July kit and therefore have 1 to give away to 1 lucky blog commenter. So, leave a comment for me and my DH will pick a random number and that person will be the winner.

Here is a preview of the July kit:

Pretty isn't it! All you have to do is leave a comment before Wednesday at noon and you could win it!

One last thing to share - today Fantacy is having a crop at 1:00 - 2:00 in the Scrapbook-Bytes chat room. I have it on good authority that the chat freebie is fabulous. So join Fantacy - she's a lot of fun and you'll do a layout and get a beautiful freebie. For more information, visit here.

Thanks so much for visiting and staying with me this long! Have a great day!
