Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!

Well after a busy weekend of sleepovers and a family party.  We decided to stay home and relax today.   So, I decided to scrap a little.  I got 2 layouts done and I'm posting one here and maybe I'll post the other one later.  Basic Grey posted a new sketch on their blog.  Here, go check it out.  I used my new BG What's up papers and their sticker sheet.  I've been looking for a reason to use those papers and their sketch was a perfect reason to cut them up.    

It's a cute picture of my Lexi after last years dance recital.  She's so stinking kills me! 

Thanks for checking us out! Til Next time. 
Love ya!

Love Thursdays!!

Thursdays are my favorite day of the week, because I'm off.   Today I got to volunteer at Lexi's school for at Outdoor Day!  It was an experience.  I helped man the balloon relay and the scoop toss.   I do to say the scoop toss is quite boring..but the kids loved the balloon relay.  I don't know how many time I had to say no today.  "no, you can't throw the balloon at me." "no, you can't keep the balloon" "no, you can not throw it at your teacher."

Once I came home, cooled off, relaxed, ate dinner I finally got to to play with paper.  It's not my usually style but it's all circles.  It's Gigi and her Bestie at the roller rink.   They are "2peas in a pod"

thanks for stopping by!!

still feeling the mojo!

I finally got to scrap some of Gigi's birthday pictures.  She had a lovely Twilight themed party.  It was crazy and fun.  When Gigi and her friends get together and they are nuts.  They are so makes your head spin.

I used the sketch from Got Sketch?  I always love a good sketch to get the juices flowing.  This one kind of fell in place. I even got to use a lot of my new supplies. <3

Here's is a new picture of Gigi.  I did our dance pics yesterday.  I can't believe another dance year is almost over.
 Here is my Lexi.  I was very lucky to have them in the same dance class this year.  Having them in the same costume makes matching pictures...much easier.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back soon.

more pretty paper.

I had to go buy some Authentique Paper today.  It's so pretty and girly.  I did have to laugh because the cashier was trying to pull it apart because both side are so lovely.  She wanted to charge me twice because it was a 2 sided piece of paper.  :D  I love the paper but I don't want to pay $1.70 for each sheet.  LOL

As soon as I came home I found the perfect picture to go with this paper.  This is Gigi  before we headed to Cleveland for a surpise concert.  She looks so young here.   I used the sketch from Authentique Paper, They have gorgeous paper and I can't wait to use/get more.

 Here's Gigi today before school.  I can't believe how much she's changed in one year.  I guess this is why we scrap.  We just want to capture each moment.

Here's my Lexi LuLu from today.  She had her spring concert this morning.  She had 2 parts.  She did a flag routine and she played a kazoo.  We were very proud of her this morning!!  

Thanks for stopping by.  :D

I love a good sketch and pretty paper!! I got to use both for this layout!  I actually got to use scraps...I just love using my scraps.

At night I've been watching Glitter Girl on Two Peas..I think she's my inspiration for this layout!   I used the sketch form The Paper Variety. It's a gorgeous sketch, I hope I've done it justice.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Dark Shadows!

I don't know if you remember watching dark shadows as a child? I do, some were in black and white...then they found color! If course they were all reruns on the SyFy channel. With the new release of the Dark Shadows movie, I accidentally found a book written by Laura Parker. So I did some research and there is a couple books!
I just finished Angelique's Descent last night!

It did have a slow start talking about Barnabas new life, but it gets a lot better once he finds Angelique's Journal! It was just great seeing everything from her perspective and how Barnabas and her life constantly intersect. I felt bad for her and near the end I felt bad for him!

I don't like spoiling things for other people, but I will tell you I'm going to read the next one!

I'm turning into a book worm!

love the basic grey blog!!

Here's for another challenge.  It's the 2 different types of fonts for the title.  I love the look of mixed fonts.  I believe it's add to the dimension of a project.
This is a layout about my baby..we have her a new nick name this week.  I just love my lexi lulu!!

Thanks for looking!!

I know it's been a LONG time!

I can't believe I haven't posted anything since 2010.  Well being a mom of 2 growing, busy girls, things get pushed to the back burner.  For instance I've hardly scrapped in the past few months.  But you know I keep getting new scrappy stuff.  It's an addiction I know.  LOL Well..let me show my girls..they have grown a lot.  *pout*

Here's Ms. Lexi, she 8 and full of life.  

                                               Here's Gigi, she's in her preteen glory.

Here's the most recent LO I've made.  I made it for blog hop by Design by Diana.  It's a great sketch..I hope everyone stop and wishes her a happy 3rd blogiversary.
Well I hope I'll be back before 2014.  :D
Love ya!!
