Mish Mash, Hodge Podge and New Templates!

Happy Sunday morning! I love Sunday mornings - the kids know I love to watch the CBS Sunday morning program and generally are anxious to let me do it. One of the kids gets to go to the store with either Dave or I and pick out doughnuts for the family and generally they are lazy fun days. I'm looking forward to the day ahead. I think the kids and are going to make our "Thanks"giving Turkey - can you believe how fast Thanksgiving is approaching?

Except for one end of season soccer party, soccer is pretty much over. Eli did well through the surgery but has had a hard time recovering. Poor little guy he's been miserable. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, Zoey's birthday next and then I'll blink and it will be Christmas. Yikes!

I just added a couple of templates packs to my Scrapbook-Bytes store this morning. here's a preview:

Each is only $2.99 and you can pick them up here.

Oh before, I forget, I have a few things I want to share! First of all, I am hosting a "Alter the Season" challenge at Scrapbook Bytes! Our first project was to make a set of altered blocks and our next project (to be posted today) is going to be a wallhanging using chipboard coasters. Here's a peak at the blocks I made for the challenge.

After the holidays I am going to make a bunch of these up as baby gifts. Wouldn't they be cute with the child's name on them or the word "baby"? The were super easy and fun to make. Come check out the challenge here.

Scrapbook-Bytes new TidBytes is out! If you haven't checked it out - you need to! It is awesome! Jammed packed with fantastic layouts, great tutorials, fabulous freebies and exclusive downloads, digital reviews and more! Don't miss it! I'll come back tomorrow and tell you a little bit more about this photo and project we completed, but in the meantime I will give you a sneak peak.

Aren't those little nuts cute? We made their matching aprons for Thaksgiving from Ali Folendore's "Tasty Tom" kit. I'll come back and talk about the aprons tomorrow!

Well Aidan just walked down the stairs all sleepy which means he's likely to snuggle with Mommy. He won't want to too much longer so I am off! Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great Sunday!

I was reading a post today at My Scrapbook Art about funny kid stories and one of the members said that her funny kid stories are the source of most of her blog posts and I thought - gee - I should blog! So here I am! Once every 3 weeks is good right? LOL!

Anyways, don't know if you heard it this morning or not but that huge sigh of relief you might have heard was me - this is the last week of soccer till Spring season and Eli's surgery is on Thursday. After this week things should calm down at least some. Yes, there is the holiday craziness but at least not 3 nights and/or days consumed with soccer practice and games, add to that birthday parties and cub scouts. Geez - we are always on the go and even the kids have been complaining that they are never home! Life is going to be incredibly nuts when we have all 3 kids in school and involved in different activities! I missed the Digi Dare "Secret" challenge - but if I had done it - my "secret" would have been that despite the craziness I love it. I waited a long time to have kids and be a soccer Mom so now I secretly love it!

Let's see - what's going on in the digi world! If you haven't seen Traci Reed's newest collection - you are seriously missing out! It is amazing - "The Ones We Love" has 6 kits - 3 girl and 3 boy themed - all with amazing elements and backgrounds! And other big news for Traci is that she is now at Sweet Shoppe Designs and has opened her own shop - Here are 4 layouts I did with Traci's new designs!
Zoey at the Duck Pond is using Traci's "Evie Jo" kit and the DSD Template by Rachael Gialliongo.
Obviously I have been in a mood to scrap the boys! Check out Traci's new collection here!
Oh and the some of the biggest news is our house is that I had my birthday last week and even I missed it! LOL! I had planned to have a big sale, a bunch of new products and a freebie! Well, as is so typical of my life, I missed it. My Mom says I was 2 weeks late when I was born and have never been on time since. Well she's sort of right and if missing my own digi birthday party doesn't prove that - I dont' know what. Bottom line - I am going to have a belated birthday celebration and a fun word art pack about getting old free for everyone!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope to have a few things to share with you in the next day or two. In the meantime - have a great day!
