I hope to get my scrapping mojo back. We've been busy with other things, it seems like scrapping has taken a back seat. In two weeks I've done 2 LOs. Can you believe that??

Here's the LO..I got done this week. It's a picture CJ took last weekend on the photowalk. It's son Erik and my Lexi at the Alter of a local church. He really wants to marry her. I think it's so cute..but my hubby doesn't think so. You should check out CJ's...we used the same sketch this week. It's from 52 sketches.

Here's my 2 little Wildcats:

Gigi's arm is still broken, but we decided to take the sling off for the pictures. She's the best one armed cheerleader.

Today us girls had a "at home spa day" I did their nails, we had makeovers ( I let my 5 and 7 year old do my makeup). We had so much fun. We also made was a perfect afternoon.
Here's some post makeover pics...yep I put make up on them. They both felt glamourous.

Blog Candy!!
Go to Melissa's site to win a's her blogaversary. Good Luck!!

I hope everyone has a great week!! :)

Long Week

We've had a long week!!
Tuesday the girls started Cheerleading practices. Practices run from Monday through Thursday (they added a Monday practice to the schedule...yey me). There are 57 little cheerleaders on my daughters' squad. It's fun trying to watch them coach so many girls. All the cheers are coming back to me from last year. I catch myself saying them...."lets get fired up".

On Wednesday we were at a play date and Gigi fell down and broke her arm. We didn't realize it was broke until Thursday. We took her to the ER and the x-rays showed a crack in her humorous, right underneath her shoulder. It never swelled nor did it bruise.

With this break, they didn't give her a cast. But we have to treat her as if she had a cast. She can't run, jump, swim, or really play. We have to keep her arm immobile. She also has to learn how to do everything with her left hand. So the first night we all ate with our less dominate hand, so she would feel better. Also after dinner we had a hands free jello eating contest. (Tony won... imagine that)

The Doctor said she can't cheer-lead until September. She a little upset about this. I think she can do it with out jumping. She'll just be a one armed cheerleader. One thing she is happy about is that she can play on the computer a lot more.

Today we went on the 2nd Annual Worldwide Photo Walk for our region. Luckily CJ came with us. Our poor region had 3 participants. We walked around a local park and took some pictures. I need to edit them and upload them to a site. We took pictures of flowers, kids and ourselves. We found really good mirrors for self portraits ( I should have redone my make up before I went).

Here's the only LO I've made this week. It's of Lexi practicing her new cheers. She's now a little wildcat. She's so excited about cheerleading and she's so cute doing it too. I did it for 52 sketches.

Well I hope your week was more relaxed than ours. We have plans all the way until next Friday. Starting with a car wash tomorrow.
Take Care!!

Love and Hugs!

Busy Weekend!!

Wow..we've had a whirl wind weekend!! When Tony's off it's go go go.

On Friday night the girls and I went to see the Field Army Band and Choir preform and following the performance was a great fireworks show. Gigi and Lexi loved it. The were worked up for a good 2 hours because of all the boomers.

On Saturday (4th of July) Gigi and Lexi was in a local parade for cheer leading. It was Lexi's first cheer leading event. She had a blast throwing candy out at the town, plus she got to spend time with her friends. After the parade we hung out with my SIL and her kids. We all rode together to see the fireworks. All the kids had so much fun at the park, where we ran into more friends. So there were even more kids to play with. Whoo hoo.

Sunday was an official day of rest..we did nothing. Woot Woot!!

Monday...we went to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. We all enjoyed the museum, it had everything from gems to dinosaur bones.

(our shutter bugs) Lexi had taken over a 100 pics between the past two days and deleted them all by accident. She wasn't too upset, but I was completely shocked when I only uploaded 9 pics.

Tuesday we went with my SIL and nephews to the Cleveland Metro Zoo, the kids had a blast looking at their dinosaur exhibit and their animals. We didn't even get to see the whole park..who knew the zoo closed at 5pm? Luckily we have Zoo Passes..we will definitely go back.

(all the zoo & museum pics are sooc)

My little Lexi lost her camera at the zoo and she was so so so upset, but luckily some nice patrons turned it in and we picked it up at lost and found. I think she'll be more careful now with it.

Well I better get busy editing pics...I have tons of scrapping material now. I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Love and Hugs!

Some Scrappiness!!

I've had a blast scrapping the past couple days. It's been fun. I just adore playing with new papers. I've scrapped a few events from the last couple weeks. I finally got around to editing some pictures. Whoo hoo

Here's a few LOs I've made the past couple days. I tend to use challenges as inspiration, they help me fill my books. I particularly love sketches...I didn't use them in the past, but now I seem to do mostly sketches.

This layout was done for Mix it Up, you need to use 4 manufactures, 4 pictures, flower and hand written journaling. The pictures were taken at the local flower garden. This LO is also going to double dip for ScrapJazz's July Challenge.

This LO was done for 52 sketches. I think it turned out cute. Lexi liked it. :)

I did this LO for ScrapJazz as well. The title had to be the same as a TV's shows title. I picked Charmed.

This LO is a double-dip as well. I did it for ScrapWhisper, the title had to be "one of a kind" and I used a sketch from Capture These Sketches.

For this LO, I also used a sketch from Capture these Sketches. It's a new sketch far they have some really cute stuff..check them out!

I hope everyone has a safe holiday weekend. I know we are looking forward to fireworks the next couple night. I'm hoping to get some good firework pictures. I've been reading about DSLR firework tips. Hopefully...I'll be posting some awesome pics.

Happy 4th everyone!!
