FOB2Y 6/26

"Today, I want everyone to blog about their favorite birthday year. What age was the best? Do you think you’ve reached it yet? Post about the experiences that have made you who you are. Bring it, girls!"

Hmm... well, as strange as it sounds, none of my birthdays seem to stand out at the moment. I guess that means I haven't had my "best ever" just yet. Hopefully I still have many, many b-days to celebrate and one of them will be just fabulous!


Here are my quiz results...

What Your Fridge Says About You

You like to be surrounded by things you love. You aren't exactly greedy, but you can be materialistic at times.

You tend to be a fairly thrifty person. You splurge occasionally, but you're mostly a saver.

You are a very adventurous person. You love to try new things, and you get bored very easily.

You are responsible, together, and mature. You act like an adult, even when you don't feel like it.

You are likely to be married - and very busy.

Low Tide layouts

Jenn's newest kit, Low Tide, is perfect for any type of beach or pool layouts. We were able to take my son to the ocean for the first time while we were back East for the funeral this past week. He LOVED it! The water was coooold, but he didn't care at all. After running up and down the beach for what seemed like hours, we walked up and down the boardwalk and he loved that too. He's such a happy kid. :)

busy week

I had to go out of town for a funeral this past weekend (about 12+ hrs one way) and I'm still trying to catch up on my sleep.

You'll notice some CT changes for me.

Mandy is no longer at Scrap Orchard, but she'll be settling in to her new store SOON. Sorry, can't say where just yet but it looks like a great store! I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone there.

Beckie will be closing her store at Digital Candy in preparation for the birth of her 3rd baby girl. She's having a huge sale right now at DC, which you can read about at her blog. Her stuff is awesome so you don't want to miss these deals!

Amie will be taking a step back from designing as well. She needs to focus on her family right now. So I may be doing an occasional LO for her, but she won't be creating any new kits.

Soooo... lots of changes while I was out of town. Now I'm home and trying to get back to our routine. I have a couple new LOs to share already. I'll post those in a bit. :)

Beckie has a new freebie template on her blog. These are so fun to play with so definitely go snag it if you haven't already. :) Here's what I made with it. I used Monkey Business by Mandy Mystiques.

just for fun

I had some spare scrapping time this weekend and took full advantage. These were just for fun, not for a CT. I love them though!

This is just one a zillion photos exactly like this. LOL, such a ham!

I think the LO below is my new fave! This was one of those pics that I thought I'd never use, but since he's usually such a goof I love getting shots like this where he's not hamming it up. Just had to scrap it and I loooove this kit so I'm happy with the results. :)

Both images are clickable if you'd like to leave me some love! :)

alert since the day he was born ;)

So, have I mentioned how much I LOVE Beckie's Adorable You kit?! I was able to scrap my son's newborn hospital photo this weekend. It always cracks us up because he's soooo alert -- doesn't look like a newborn at all -- yet he was less than a day old! WOW! We always said he looks like he's giving a speech. LOL!

new "mini" kit from Jenn

Jenn has a gorgeous new mini kit, Felicity. The colors are wonderful AND it's on sale right now -- just $2.79! Here's a layout I made this afternoon.

The image is linked, of course. ;)

Dad's little helper

Here's a layout I made today with Beckie's "For Dad" kit. My 2½ yr old son just loooves to help daddy with yard work. (Works out good for me because I hate it, LOL!)

Digital Candy 1st birthday celebration

If you haven't checked out all the fun stuff happening at Digital Candy already, you definitely should!! There are tons of sales, challenges, prizes and freebies all month long! You'll need to be registered in the forum to join in the fun. :)

my mom as a toddler

She'd probably kill me if she saw this, LOL. Here's a layout I did with a pic of my mom as a toddler. I thought it looked great against the pinks and browns in Mandy's new Cotton Candy II kit. Image is clickable. :)

Don't forget to check out Mandy's blog (linked on my blog -- look to the right) for a freebie that coordinates with this kit!

another night without power :(

Ugh! We had yet another big storm last night that led to a power outage. It was only out for about 11 hrs this time -- just enough to kill my scrap time and make the house rather uncomfortable for sleeping. So glad it's back on now, but I didn't sleep well at all and can't fall back asleep. So here I am, hoping to scrap a page before my little guy wakes up for the day. :) I do have a LO to share from yesterday still so I'll do that next.

For Dad -- new kit by Beckie Wallace

Beckie Wallace has another great kit now available at Digital Candy. For Dad is great for Father's Day layouts -- or any type of masculine layouts really. I used it to scrap this great photo I took of DH holding our son on the day he was born.

Click the image to view this layout in my gallery and leave a comment. :)

Daddy in training

Mandy has a great new kit that was just released -- Cotton Candy II! If you liked her original Cotton Candy kit (now retired), you'll love part II! It's on sale right now, so go snag it at a great price. :)

Here's the first LO I've done with this great kit. Yes, my curly haired cutie LOVES his baby doll! He'll most likely want to kill me for scrapping this when he's older, but for now I don't think he'll mind. ;)

rough weekend!

Ugh. We had a nasty (yet brief) storm come through Friday night and lost power around 9pm. Once the storm had passed, DH decided to take a walk around the yard (in total darkness) to see how many tree branches he would need to clean up. We *thought* there was a very large branch on the deck... but we quickly realized it was much more. An entire tree had snapped and landed on the deck! Of course, we're counting our blessings because if it had fallen another way it could have easily landed on the house -- right on our son's bedroom where he was fast asleep. Scary! So as much of a pain it will be to take care of the mess, it could be much worse.

The power didn't come back on 'til around 4:30pm or so on Saturday. What a long day without a/c! Everyone who knows me knows how much I HATE hot weather so this was misery -- temps in the 90s, which is ridiculously hot for this time of year. No fun.

We're so happy to have our power back. I've already scrapped a new page and plan to do a couple more today, time permitting. Our a/c is set at 66 right now so life is good! :)

Mandy's new kit

I loooove Mandy's new "Monkey Business" kit. Just awesome! Here's a preview (click to check it out in her store -- it's even on sale right now!)

I made this layout for my friend Val at JM. :)

I love this pic of my little guy (yep, weird angle, slight blur and all!) Journaling reads, "You could always stay this young and I wouldn't mind at all." That's a song lyric that is so true!

All images are clickable! :)
