It's been a scrappy morning!

2 posts in one day, WOW!

Christmas break, Greg is back to work, the kids are playing with their new gadgets and Mama is SCRAPPIN'!!! Just wanted to post a layout I did this morning and then I NEED to go get something done, LOL.
I did this layout for Wendi's challenge at MSW. There's still time to join in on the fun challeges there, go check out the forum!

and here is a card I created for Bev's challenge:

Thank you gifts for the kids that help me at work

With the budget cuts in the kitchen at school this year, I have 2 kids, part of triplets, that help me every day. I wanted to make them something and wanted to include a gift card to their fav place. This is what I came up with:
For Justin:
For Ali:

Thanks Justin and Ali! I really appreciate all you do!

Hustle & Bustle

In between hustlin' and bustlin' to get ready for Christmas, I found my sanity by taking a little time out of every day to relax and scrap, even if it was for 30 minutes.

At MSW I took Scarlett's challenge and made an ornament and added it to my card:

I recently joined a new message board, The Moments, and have been having fun with their challenges. I made my first mini album in years, but it was only the shell of it. I am going to be putting all my Christmas cards from 2010 in it:

Thanks for visiting and hope you find sometime during this busy holiday season for some stress-free time!

A little time for scrappin'

Between making Christmas cards and shopping for Christmas, I found a little time to play with the Imaginisce December sketch. The minute I saw this sketch, I knew I had to use it! Here is what I came up with. (I used the Jolly By Golly line from Cosmo Cricket)

Photo shoot!

Got the kids outside a few weeks ago for a few fall pics, the burning bushes in front of the house were almost in full bloom. Love the results!

Here is the card sketch:
My take on it:

and the layout sketch:

September 1st layout sketch at MSW

WOW! It's been a whole 2 months since I have been here! Where did the summer go?! I guess being gone on our family vacation to California for 3 weeks really took a chunck out of the being off work thing. Hoping to post pics from that soon!

Any way, the September 1st sketch is up at MSW and the new DT did an awesome job! There are also some new challenges to try too! Go check it out!
Here is my take on Lucy's wonderful sketch:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be posting again soon!

I have been wanting a new family picture of us for quite some time and had Theresa take this one at Jim and Nicki's wedding! Thanks Theresa!

A Few Photos from Jim and Nicki's wedding

My brother, Jim got married last Saturday and had a beautiful wedding! A fun time was had by all!
Congrats and welcome to the family Nicki!


I actually completed the LOAD contest at ScrapDango! That means I did a layout or 2 cards a day for the month of June! Now I need to clean my house, I have ignored it the last few days trying to play catch up! Here are a few things I did later in the contest.
