It's finally happened!

My baby girl has turned into a teenager. Have mercy. On me. LOL Of course, she would absolutely DIE if she knew I posted this on my blog, but it's my revenge for all of the eyerolls I've had to endure in recent weeks. I was thinking about having this pic enlarged and scrapping it. What do you think? Should I do it? :-D

Surprise! It's me!

It has been an absolute whirlwind of a week, umm, month actually. Which is a bummer, because I didn't have anything on my calendar when August started. I haven't had much time to scrap, therefore there hasn't been much to update here. But alas, I was able to scrap a little bit yesterday during Scrappy Hour in the Feeling Scrappy classroom. This is a layout for my Book of Me.

I can't believe September is almost here already! Where did the summer go? But a new month means new fun on the Feeling Scrappy message board! Each month, we have a new avatar theme and they are always CRAZY! (Probably has something to do with the fact that "I" choose the themes! LOL) You will NOT want to miss what crazy thing I have planned for September. At least come over and see the ladies fuss at me! :-D


Scrap shopping at Home Depot

Yes, it's true! My husband thinks I'm totally nuts and I think it secretly annoys him that I LIKE going to Home Depot. Last time we went, he "lost" me in the kitchen section, and when he found me looking at formica samples, he rolled his eyes and said, we're not getting new countertops, forget it. I was totally confused and he pointed to all the samples. "OH! No, these are for the scrapbook! What do you think about these colors for beach pics?" Other cool items from Home Depot for paper crafting: washers, paint chips and drywall tape. Yep, nuts, I tell ya! LOL What do YOU think? :-)


I Rock!

No! Really! I was nominated for Rockin' Girl Blogger! I really have no idea what that means, but I'm very excited and honored for the nomination! :-D

I have actually managed to find a little time to scrap. I finally finished Ethan's portrait album and none too soon! I was feeling a little stressed about it, since he had already passed his G.E.D. So, that's done. I've been working on a couple of beach pages as well. Here's one I completed today for the Feeling Scrappy class. And just so you know, I'm not giving anything away by showing you my layout. I promise, my layout looks nothing like the sketch given, nor was it supposed to. LOL But I will admit, it wasn't as easy as it sounded!


Back from the beach!

Ahh, there's nothing like a little sun, surf and sand to soothe and renew the soul!

We came back home to wonderful news! Ethan got his GED results and he's passed! You know what that means! I'm LATE in completing his portrait album! So, I've got to get busy and finish this week. Luckily, I only have 6 more layouts to do. But darn it, that means I've got to get busy scrappin'! LOL And lucky for me too, that Feeling Scrappy's latest class, Sketching with a Twist, starts in a few days. I can't wait to scrap my beach pics! :-)
