Sunday's List

Hey Scrappers!

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend. Our busy schedules started yesterday. We had my family over for a cook-out & campfire. I have to say, it was a wonderful day. Very laid back and low-key. The weather was beautiful - mid 70's - a very nice change from the record-breaking 90 degree days earlier in the week. Today we have a birthday party we are attending, and tomorrow will be crazy. We have a parade (that DH will be in), a birthday party and a picnic at my MIL's house. All really fun things, but a lot of running around - and not much space for DD2 to take a nap :-( ..

Here is your list - and enjoy the rest of your weekend. BTW, no list tomorrow - I just have too much to do. Be back on Tuesday!

Happy Scrapping!

A Special LO

I wanted to post a special layout here. Today is my Grandmothers birthday. It is the first one we are celebrating without her. So, I made this layout for my mom and the rest of our family.

Play-dough Pics

Yesterday DD and I were playing with some homemade playdough. Well, she was playing, I was mostly taking her picture. She was being such a little ham, I thought I'd share some of them.



























She made a little sheep with it and wanted to show it off. She was having a blast posing for the camera (nope, not normal for her!) and she was being so silly making a "happy face" instead of just saying "Cheeeeeeeeeessssssssssssseeeeee" ! She cracks me up!


I'll share the recipe for the homemade dough, if I can find it.

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. My week is starting out to be very productive. I dropped the kiddies off at my MIL's and ran errands. I went grocery shopping, got some presents for a birthday party we have next weekend, stopped at Target and got some cute little flip-flops for swimming class tonight, I planted pansies & petunias, tomatoes, peas and beans, I even had time to fit in a shower! All this, by 12:30. Amazing! I also stopped to try on some swimming suits - but that was NOT so much fun - I'll definately be walking tonight! LOL...

A LO, a List & a Funny Story!

I've been busy today! I finally finished a LO - it's been a while. As you can tell, I am way behind on my pics. These are from just before last Christmas. I have come to terms with the

fact that I will always be behind on scrapping :-) There actually was a time BC (Before Children) that I was caught up, and I was trying to come up with events to take pictures at, just so that I could continue to scrap! Only a true scrapper could admit to that :-) I know I'm not the only one that does that - or makes sure my kids have matching outfits in pictures so that I can match papers to the photo's easier! LOL

Here's my pic credits:

Quick Page – Elegance Quick Page # 3 by Doro (Doreen Stolz) (Get it here )
Fonts: Ck Windsong

Special techniques: Dup title layer and changed the color to 2 shades darker than the paper below the title. This gives it a more realistic drop shadow look. The original Quick page did not go with my pictures, but I really liked the feel of it, so I adjusted the hue and saturation until I got colors that went better with my pictures.

Ok, now my funny story. Don't worry, the list is coming...

We recently purchased a new (to us) minivan, and I was really excited about the multi-zone temp control. I can't tell you how many times I'd put my kids in my old car for a quick trip to the store, and find the poor things fast asleep and dripping with sweat because they were just too warm. It didn't matter how high I turned on that a/c, it'd happen every time. So today, on the way home from bible school, I looked at my temp guage, and noticed that it was already 81 degrees out. So, I set my a/c at a comfortable temp in my zone, and cranked up the a/c for the kiddies. A few minutes later, my DD1 (who's 2 1/2) says "Mom, can you turn down that wind?? It's really messing up my hair!!!!" I guess she'll never enjoy riding in a convertable! LOL

Ok, now, here's what you all came for - the LIST:
