a little scrappiness

I love working or being back in the work force, but it's a lot harder to find time to scrap. So since I'm working 29 hours or so a week, I've decided to treat my self to a new scrapbook kit! I joined the Scarlet Lime kit club! I can't wait until I get it in the mail around the 10th. :D

Here's a couple LO I've done recently.

I did the top one for this week's Sketchy Thursday. I used pictures from this winter and some eyelets I bought forever ago. The girls were like, "what's all that banging Mommy?"

I did this one for sketch 200 on Scrapbook Challenges. I used pictures from the first time Lexi met Mrs. West. She really going to miss her during the summer.
I hope you are having a great scrappy weekend!!

Sketchy Thursday!

I'm loving the sketches over at Sketchy Thursday! It's helping me scrap some of my many photos that are laying around.

For this week's sketch I bust out Lexi's 6th birthday party pictures. I just felt inspired by them. Plus Lexi loves when I make layouts about her.

On a side note, a Big Lots near where I live had the Cuttlebug folders. I got a few tonight and I cut those circles, on the above layout, with a new die. Gigi and Lexi had a blast breaking in all the new folders and dies. I was very entertained watching them cut paper and rolling them through the cuttlebug.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my stuff! See ya soon!

Wow it's been a long time!

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger. We've been super busy, plus I had ZERO mojo.

I'm now a working mom...whoo hoo! I'm glad to be back at work. Both girls are in school, so the timing was perfect. Right now I'm working part time, but that's like 30 hrs a week! I definitely couldn't say no! The girls are settling well,to me working again.

I'm also an official soccer mom, both girls are playing this spring. They are loving every second of it! I love that they love it! Lexi is a scoring machine. I think she's scored in almost every game. Gigi is the smallest on her team, but she plays as hard as she can. I just wish the weather was better. They have played in rain and sleet for a couple weekends!

Pretty soon I'll be posting pics of Lexi's dance recital costume. I'm going to do a photo shoot real soon! She's going to be so adorable on the stage!

On to some recent scrappiness, I finally found some mojo this evening! I'm really excited that I made two Layouts tonight.

This one I made with the Scrapbook Challenges sketch 198. It's of my nephew's birthday party last year.

This one is for Sketchy Thursday. I finally started cutting into my Sassafrass Lass papers. I just love their colors.

Thank you for visiting! Hopefully I'll be back soon!
