Well we had a fabulous weekend. Here's some pictures that I took and here's a run down of what we did.

*Thursday (watched my nephew), finished registering Lexi for school, and Gigi's concert in the AM
*Friday night....nephew's birthday party
*Saturday...Nelson's Ledges State Park
*Sunday...Cook out
* and recooperation
*Tuesday..back to school for Gigi and feels like Monday for the rest of us!

Now these pics are from the random events in no particular order :)

I haven't been to scrappy this week (I think Mafia Wars has something to do with it)..but hopefully I'll get some scrapping in tonight and tomorrow. I'm hosting scrappy Thursday this week.
Gotta Run!!

3 weeks...

left until school lets out. I'm so excited about this summer. This Lexi's last summer before she goes to school and Gigi's summer before 3rd grade. My babies are getting big. There are so many things we want to do this summer.
*play at the parks
*Go to the beach
*Go to the zoos
*Go to the local nature parks
*read lots of book
*play in the yard
*play the wii
*learn how to do cartwheels
*Go to Washington DC for a couple days
*play with friends and family

This is just a small list of things to do!

This week's I heart face's contest is pick your favorite face. I have 2 favorite faces but, I went with this picture, I think she looks cute.

I am submitting this photo into the Blurb book photo contest. If chosen, I grant I Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and I Faces web sites.

Here's a couple projects I did this weekend. I did this layout for Scrap the Girls and these cards for a crop on AllyScraps (but I didn't turn them in...I didn't get to last night, my hubby was playing MafiaWars on FB).

I have a few more projects in mind for the week so hopefully, I'll stop playing Mafia Wars too and scrap. (Tony and I are slightly competitive.)

Love and Hugs!

I hope everyone had a fabulous mother's day!! I did, I have the best two kids in the whole world. They make being a mother so much fun!! We spent the weekend together playing and just having fun!!

Here's a couple pics we took yesterday. This first one I'm entering into I {heart} faces, laughter challenge.

These were us playing with the remote. Sometime the lighting looked good and other times it didn't, but we just went with the flow.

Also this weekend I did some LO for the Ally Scraps online crop. They have some great challenges and they motivated my mojo!

Hopefully, I'll get some more scrapping done this week. I'll see you all later. I gotta run and play!

Love and Hugs!

Get Funky!!

That the challenge on ScrapWhispers!! I thought it sounded like fun! So here's the card I made for them.

Also, here my entry for the 52 sketches this week.

After I picked the Gigi up from school yesterday, she tells me that she wants to check out books about magic tricks. So off to the library we went. She picked up 4 books about magic trick and Lexi got 3 books about horses. So our afternoon was planned out..we went from the library to Micheal's where we picked up magic wand parts.

They've already learned one trick already...this should be an interesting weekend of magic and fun!!

Oh....Ally Scraps is having an online crop this weekend. Come out and get "funky" or scrappy!!

Have a fabulous day everyone!!
Love and Hugs!

hats and more

This week I'm entering the I {heart} faces kids. I love this picture of Gigi. I added a vignette, which I learned how to do from ClickenMoms. That site is full of photo information and tutorials. Check them out!!

Saturday we decided to make a fun dinner for the girls. They both love and adore iCarly (on Nick). So we decided to make one of Carly's favorite dinners..we made Spaghetti Tacos. I know it sounds really weird..but it wasn't that bad. :) It was slightly messy, but that's what made it soo much fun.

Saturday was also National Scrap Day (NSD)...I had fun scrapping at home. I hit crops on ScrapJazz, Noel Mignon and I even did a LO for ScrapWhispers.

This is my first alter frame. I haven't decided what I'm going to do with it yet. Here's a few more projects from the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.

I hope you all have a fabulous week.
Love and Hugs!

Rainy days ahead

Of course Tony is off this weekend so it will be rainy. LOL it always happen that way.

Yesterday I went scrappy shopping and had a blast. I shopped for about 45minutes and waited in line for about 1.5 hours. It was total craziness, but seriously fun. Chrispea is a great person to wait in line with. :)

Here's what I bought. I got some really really pretty papers. There is some Crate, Pink Pasilee, MM and MLS.

Here's something that melted my heart today. While I was doing dishes, Lexi pulled out some stamps and ink and made me a pretty card. I love that she makes random little cards and letters like that. Of course daddy got one too.

(I (heart) U Lexi)

Here's a new LO for Scrapwhispers. They have a great challenge this week. It's a Black and White Challenge with one pop of color. So I took a recent shot of Gillian and removed the color and created a LO off of that.

Here's one for fun!

(*thanks CJ..she helped with the title)

Well I gotta run and pick up Gigi from school.

Love and Hugs!
