Well, as promised!  Here's my second post for the week!

are photo's of Sarah last summer at the beach.  Warm weather is coming

Use Your Stuff Challenge #180 "Anything Goes'

This is a DT reveal I am doing for Use Your Stuff.
The challenge this week, for #180 is "Anything Goes".
Which was perfect becuase I have been working on Sarah's
invitations for her classes 8th grade graduation party in June.
This was something I came up with on Friday.  All of the
word art represents different things, or special moments their
class have had together in the past 9 years.  Most of the class, 37 of them,
have been together since Kindergarten, so this is a bitter sweet time for them.

I hope you like the invitation.  I'm not sure this is the final product, 
I still have time  tweek it....any suggestions are welcome.  
I'm not opposed to adding/changing or
going in a totally different direction!

I will be posting later this week for another blog on Wednesday! So until then...

Let's Scrap Mid Month Reveal

Hi friends!  Hope everyone is well!

We are settling in our new home, and adjusting well.
The last of the furniture came last week while we were 
away on Spring Break, and so now I'm shopping for artwork
and "pretties" as my mom calls it! :)  We are home for the 
remainder of the school year, (6 weeks) and then travel season will
start again!  Lots of fun trips planned too!

It's the 15th of the month, so it's time for our mid month reveal
at Let's Scrap.  Here's the sketch, and my take on it!  I try
really hard to stay true to the sketch.  These were photo's from
Sarah's first day of 8th grade,back in September!

Have a great week everyone.  I'll be back to post early next
week for two more design teams!!! Thank goodness for them,
becuase they are the only reason I'm staying on task!!! :)

Spring Has Sprung Blog Hop

Welcome to our Spring Blog Hop.  The birds are chirping, the sun is shining and (hopefully) the cold spell is over!  The Use Your Stuff Design Team are showing their spring fever by creating some great spring themed projects for you.

The hop runs from Monday April 13th until Saturday April 18th, so you have lots of time to play along.  Make sure you leave a comment on each blog.  If you would like to follow the blog, I'm sure the DT would love that as well!  We have 5 spring themed prizes to give away from the comments on the blogs.  You won't know which blogs we will be choosing so make sure you comment on each one.  International participants are welcome. 

I chose to do 3 Spring cards, that include some bling, and flowers~of which I'm super excited to see after this long winter we've had!  I hope this gives you some inspiration!
 Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here is the line up for the blog:

Let's Scrap April Sketch

Hi friends!  It's been way too long!!!!
We are officially moved in and about 85% unpacked.
With most of our boxes now contained in just 2 of our garage bays.
So there's progress!!  I went to IKEA over the weekend, and got some
organizing cubes and bookshelves for my craft room.  And am happy to 
report things are progressing nicely.  All that's left to come for furniture
is the master bedroom sitting room. And that should be here next week.

I just looked to see that it's been quite a while, 2 weeks to be exact since
I've posted last.  Hoping that that will change....

This is the layout sketch for Let's Scrap Sketches.  My photo of my 
layout is much better here than on their blog. These are photo's from Sarah's birthday weekend in NYC this past December.  Please pop over and play along
Hoping my 2 page layout gives you some inspiration this week!

We are off to Key West next week for Spring Break!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week and a blessed Easter Sunday!

Picture This! March Challenge

I'm back!!!!! Unpacked, and eager to spend lots of time
in my new craft room!  It's coming together slowly, but am making progress!
The rest of the house is coming together as well, with just a few
pieces of furniture left to come in!

This is a layout I did last night for Picture This! Challenge Blog.
The challenge was to use 2 photo's, plus a dark background, and a butterfly!
Wasn't so sure these pictures from the beach last summer would
work, but I think they did very nicely!

Hope everyone is warming up and excited for Spring to start!
(Even if were are expecting snow tomorrow, here in the Washington DC suburbs!)
Have a great weekend! Hoping to post some more in a few days!

share with you the first sketch for March.
Typically, Let's Scrap does two page layouts,
but I condenced mine into one page.

Here is the sketch, and my layout!  I hope you
get some inspiration from it, and you come over and play!
