So Excited...

I am so excited. I was just able to order the new book 52 Challenges by Elsie Flannigan ( ) ( I just love her). She is such a free spirit and her scrapbook pages reflect that. I can't wait to get it and try some fun challenges. I have scrapper's block so this book will do me some good. I think it is because I have been scrapping non-stop since we got back from vacation. I am sure I will get me crativity back soon.

Scrapping About Me...

So, I know that it is important to leave some evidence of my existance for my kids and grandkids to know. But it is so much easier to scrap about the kids and about Ezzy. I already know how I feel about them and I say it everyday so it is right there in my head. But for myself I really have to think about what I want them to know about me. So the other night I decided to start slow. I did a very simple layout about me and include the most obvious things I want them to know about myself. I am quite happy with the way it turned out. I originally had " I'm addicted to Coke" but I changed it to "I'm addicted to Coca-Cola". I didn't want anyone to get the wrong idea. I may be crazy at times but I am no druggie. ((LOL))

More pictures from Disney

These pictures were inspired by my favorite scrap artist Elsie Flannigan. The hotel had such awesome color walls. I am having fun with this photography thing. I think I notice potential backgrounds now. The new camera I have takes great pictures and I am getting more familar with the different settings. This was taken at the Magic Kingdom at Mickey's house. This is at Minnie's house. This is the Tea Cup ride.

I'm Back from Disney...

Man, it is great to be home but I really did have a good time. I think I just might have to plan to go back for my birthday in October. Here are some fun pics from the trip.

The countdown continues...

After months of planning we are finally going to be leaving for our vacation in Orlando on Wednesday. Man, I can't wait. With all the contructions and renovating going on in our house I will be so happy to be out of there for a couple of days. I spent most of the weekend helping Tasha move into her new house. It is really nice. I love the colors she used. They make it look very light and airy. When we get back from Orlando I will be doing the painting in our house. I am ready for the change of colors. See you when I get back.

Countdown to Disney....

5 Days and counting. We leave for Orlando in 5 days. Man I can't wait. The kids can't wait either. Every time Niah gets in my car she's asks if we are going to Disney. We will be going with my friend Tasha and her son. We got a suite with a kitchette so I will be headed to Walmart this weekend to stock up on juice, snakes and breakfast stuff for the trip. That is were we tend to spend the most money so I am going to be prepared this time.

My Layout Won a Contest...

Wow, how cool is that. I was surfing the net and I found this wonderful scrapbook site called Serendipity Scrapbooks. I entered their June Anna Griffin Contest. My Layout had to be 75% Anna Griffin products. That wasn't hard cause the A Million Memories June Kit was all Anna Griffin. And I won. My prize is the new Scenic Route Charolette Line. I got them on Saturday. They are so yummy I can't wait to play with them. Here is the Layout.

4th of July..

I decided since our house is under construction right now, it would be good for the kids if we spent the morning at the park. So we invited my friend Tamara and her two daughters to join us at the park. She suggested that we go to a park I have never been to before. I liked it. There is a perfect spot to lay and watch the kids. I will be going there again. After that we had dinner at Tamara's house, shot off a couple of firecrackers and called it a night. I think it was a good day. Here are some pics from the park. I love this shot of Nayshawn jumping from the swing. I will be scrapping that one very soon.

Design Team Layouts..

I am on the design team for A Million Memories ( and I have been working on some projects for July to be posted in the gallery there. Since it is July, I can share these beautiful works. I was sent those beautiful KI Memories Color theory items and really had a lot of fun creating with them. So much fun that I think I am going to entry the KI Memories Celebrate Life contest. I think a month is enough time to create some really special Layouts. Wish me Luck. I will post some more later.

The other day I went to the bank and they were having a drawing. Guess what? I won a $50 gift card to AMC Movie Theaters. I am never normally lucky like that so this is a big deal for me. Just thought I would share.
