Oh Happy Day!!

It's friday!! Thank Goodness!! No cheer practice today whoo hooo!!

This week Gigi started the 2nd grade and she was so adorable. Her big is huge compared to her little body. I can't wait to scrap these pictures.

No more pictures PLEASE!!!

Lexi had a dentist appointment earlier this week and she was champ. She didn't cry and she actually smile when he took her x-rays. Of course I took the before and after shots. :)


This week I even got to scrap a little. Here the LO I did for the Cord Camera Message Board Challenge. It's a pagemap's sketch. I'm beginning to really enjoy doing sketches. :)

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
Ta-ta for now!!

OMG summer's over

Today is's the last day of Gigi and Lexi's freedom. Tomorrow Gigi goes into the second grade and Lexi will be home all day with me writing her ABCs. Over the last week we have celebrated summer as well as Gigi's 7th Birthday. She is spoiled rotten!! Her Nana and Papa was even here for most of the week. Gigi and Lexi both got lots of toys and WEBKINZ!! (I'm fighting for computer rights!)
In the last week we've been visiting and running all over the place.

Here's a quick recap!!
Last Friday----Gillian's Birthday Party

Last Saturday--Gillian's First Game (we lost 20-0)

Last Sunday-- My Parents arrived! (yey me!) They gave the girls fake chop stixs. So we had to have Chinese food so they could play.

Monday--I got some Gigi and Lexi love before I got to babysit my parent's dog while they took the girls shopping.

Tuesday-- Hey I got to scrap today!! Whoo hoo!

Wednesday-- Time to make the Cupcakes for the cheerleading squad for Gigi's birthday!

Thursday--Gigi is 7!!! Happy Birthday Gigi!!

Friday--Road Trip, we took a 3 hour drive to the Columbus Zoo. Mom and Ray left for VA as we headed out the door to the Zoo!

Last Night--Bonfire to celebrate the football season for both the players and the cheerleaders!! There was music and fun for everyone (mostly the kids).

Today--Football Game!! Go Wildcats!!

Tomorrow-- First Day of School!!

WHEWWWW!! Now I'm really tired. I've taken tons of pictures this week!! Hopefully I'll find my mojo soon so I can get scrappy with them. I hope Mom didn't take him home with her.

My mother has been bit by the scrappy bug and now wants to scrap. She already has some tools including the cricut!! I sent her home with some other tools she may need. I tried to help her out some. I can't wait to see what she creates with all her new scrappy purchases.

I hope everyone has a fabulous week!!
Love and Hugs!!

Ta-ta for now!

2 weeks left!!

In 2 weeks Gigi will be back in school. I can't believe how fast this summer went. It's seems like yesterday she just got out on break. This week we went and bought her new school supplies. I love suppy shopping. There is something about new notebooks and pencils. We also went clothes shopping too. She at that age where I let her pick out her own clothes. I realized she's such a unique girl, she girly with an edge. I love that she has her own sense of style.

Also, this week we are celebrating her 7th birthday. Well her party is this week the actual birthday is next week. She's having a High School Musical Party. For fun, we are doing HSM sing along. Now I know everybody will love that. LOL Don't you all wanna sing "Bop Bop Bop to the Top"?

This weekend some of friends convinced me to go to a 12 hour crop. I was going to cancel and go to Va and then that fell through. Then I was going to still cancel but I was told to go and get good stories. It was fun to have a night away from everyone. I got to play with other adults and be silly. At the crop I made 5 LOs. They are in my Flickr gallery. Some are really cute. :)
Here we are being goofy. Let me tell you I was lucky to get 5 LOs done!!

Well now on to new LOs. After the crop I had some pretty good MoJo!

I love this LO of Lexi!! I rarely love my work but I adore this one!

This LO I did for this weeks 52Sketches blog. This sketch just spoke to me and I like how it turned out. Check out her blog!

I've got a couple more challenges to do today. Hopefully I'll be back to post them soon!

What a mess!!!!

I've started a project today looking for toddler pictures of me. I decided while looking at picture to pull them out of those old photo albums. I didn't want them to get ruined. I found some good pictures and I even found some subway tickets from my first ride on the DC rail. I was a scrapper from the start. I've always enjoyed taking photos so I guess wanting to scrap has come naturally.
Here's some pictures of my mess:

I haven't scrapped anything this weekend or today. I'm sort of saving pictures to scrap Saturday at the Cord Camera's 12 hour Crop. Whoo Hoo!! It's going to be 12 hours of non-stop giggling, laughing and scrapping. My friends from around here convinced me to go and I'm grateful that they talked me into it.

So I'm going to leave you with the last LO I made. I used Prima Papers and I did it for the Cord Camera Message Board Sketch Challenge.

Well I need to work on my mess some more.
