Colorado pics

Just wanted to pop in and share a few pics from our vacation to Colorado while I am taking a break from packing for our camping trip, we leave tomorrow.
This is a pic of the kids at the Garden of the Gods:

This is the Stanley Hotel where Jennifer & Jerod were married and where we took the ghost tour, yes, it's haunted!

The first time I saw an elk, of coarse I was taking pics at the back of the hotel and Greg had to call me on my cell. After not seeing any elk last summer on our trek to CA, Greg knew it was my mission to see one this year! lol!

Greg & the kids in jail at the Flying W Ranch:

Of coarse, what's a vacation to Colorado without a trip on the Cog Railway to Pike's Peak?! This was my third trip up, Greg's second and the kids first, but I think this was the coldest for me,( just like being in Wisconsin on a cold winter day), it was -10 degrees with the windchill and all we had on was sweatshirts, but Austin still climbed the rocks! (and look at that view!)

The kids and I by the Cog Railway:

Now off to pack some more! Thanks for stopping by!

Scrappin' For Me!

I finally found some "me" scrappy time, by this I mean scrapping, that's not for a design team. Don't get me wrong I love scrapping for the two design teams I am on, but I finally had time once again to play at some very fun blogs!

The first layout I want to share with you today is called Happy. I used a pic of the kids & me on Mother's Day, of coarse they were being silly, and used October Afternoon's 5 & Dime collection. Put those with the July 7 sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches, Challenge #6 at Scraptivations (bingo! I used the first row going down: punch, banner, celebration & brads) and here is my layout:

The second layout I did is called Twelve and has pics of Austin and his cake on his 12th birthday. I used the sketch from challenge #8 at Scraptivations along with the Scrap{Stash} 7/5/11 at My Scraps & More (use at least 10 different manufacturers on your layout, I used 12!) Here is my page:

Thanks for stopping by today and happy scrapping!

MSW June Summer Is Here Contest

Lucy at My Sketch World had a contest last month (Summer Is Here). The challenge was to create a layout about your favorite things to do in the summer and you must use at least 2 pics. We love to go to waterparks in the Dells and spend the day cooling off on the slides and in the water. I used a few different lines from Echo Park and loved how my layout turned out! Here is my layout of Austin and Sierra in the wave pool along with Sierra's pic of the Mt. Olympus sign:

Got Scraps Week 5 Challenge

I chose to do a layout about my life at 45. Here is my layout:
