Keeping Up With The Jangs...

Well, so as many of you know, the saga contines with our crazy life that we have at the moment.
We settled on our new home that we've been building the past year a few weeks ago.
And we are certainly taking our time with the moving process!  It is after all, February in Baltimore, and true to form, Monther Nature has decided to bless us with another 10" of snow this weekend! 
 Not to mention the -4' that we've been feeling all week!  So, while alot of boxes are being packed, and things taken to Good Will, not much has gone over to the new house yet!  Soon, very soon though!  We have our movers scheudled for March 6th, so hopefully things will start to take shape!

On top of moving, and trying to keep a "normal" scheudle, Sarah, our 14 year old (the one in the middle) got accepted into her high school of choice! Notre Dame Prepartory School in Baltimore.
She is super excited, and we can't be more thrilled for her. ( Although the 45 min commute
to the high school, not so much!)  We are very excited to start Sarah's new chapter in life, in September, but in the mean time, need to get a few things settled around here before we move foward!

Having said all that, I think those are some great reasons as to why not much crafting
has been going on in my world!  The only thing keeping me in check are my fabulous
design teams! Otherwise, my scrapbooking would have gone way south for sure!
So I have had some thoughts about my blog, and think I will update it more frequently
with our families ongoings, and some info/diy videos and such.  Please let me know
what you would most like to see so I can find them for you, and leave a comment below.
  I'm a huge fan of you tube and pinterest!! (Just trying to keep up with the teenage girl around here!

Have a great week!  Enjoy the Oscars!
 And I will hopefully post something Tuesday or Wednesday this week!

Sketches 4 All

Scrap room, scrap room, scrap room!
I got time in my scraproom!! :)

Got a chance last night to do a quick layout for Sketches 4 All.
I was also able to join in on Giorgia's Challenge on Sketches 4 All
Her challenge was to use arrows, in your layout.
So here is Sketches 4 All, February layout, and my take on the sketch.

I always forget to visit Sketches 4 All, but when I do, 
I remember what a lovey ning site it is! And what
fun challenges they have going on!

Stay warm this weekend, and have a wonderful valentines day everyone!

House Update

Just a quick update....

While I haven't had much time to scrap lately, 
we have been super busy since we closed on our home two weeks ago!
I feel like a project manager managing two homes and trying to coordinate
allthat needs to be done!  (and my husband thinks he'll pop out from under the office
And thing magically happen, and we'll be in the new house!!)

Looks like our expected move date is sometime during the first week of March.
On top of that we are waiting patiently for D-Day(decision day) 
for high school acceptances into the archdiocese of Baltimore!!!
I will continue to post updates, hoping to scrap later tonight.
(Hoping my floating charms from Origami Owl will give me inspiration)

SIWAS Challenge.

I am happy to write on this post, that this
is my first team member challenge for
Scrap It With A Song.  Each month
a new Pop and Rock song will be revealed
and to play along all you have to do is be inspired
somehow from the words in the song, or the song title.
The song for February is Shakeria's, "Whenever, Wherever"
When I was reading the lyrics, the word that popped out the most
for me was the word LUCKY.  It shows up alot in the song.
As I was thinking about what pictures I was going to use, once I
saw the word I knew.  They were pictures from county fair this year
when Sarah and Ziggy showed in the horse show.  She had a fabulous
day, and was "lucky" enough to be Grand Champion! Something
she's worked very hard for!The post below me has other pictures from 
fair, and this is going to be a double page layout in the scrapbook...
Come along and play with us this month!!! Hope to see you over there!

Sketches In Thyme Challenge for February

Hi everyone!

It's the beginning of the month, which means
new challenges are up!  Sketches In Thyme has
a new layout for Team A.  Below is the 
sketch, and the layout I did.  These were some
photos from the county fair this past August. A few fun,
quiet moments for Sarah and Ziggy, after they showed in all their classes.
 Something that is atypical for fair day! 
Hope I've given you a little inspiration!
Pop over to the site and play alog!

LTSCB: #46 Anything Goes

Hi everyone!
Twice in one week! Who would of thunk it!!!
(Certainly keeping up with one of my new year's resolutions! LOL)
There is a new challenge up over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.
Challenge 46 is Anything Goes....

Here is my inspiration for you.

 I have volunteered at Meals on Wheels of /Central Maryland 
for the past 5 years, and in addition to delivering meals to some fantastic clients, 
my secret paper obsession became known and I am now the official/unofficial
card maker for MOW.  On any given month, I can make up to a dozen birthday cards,
 and  sometimes, they are the only cards they receive on their special day.
Here is a card I did for one of their clients....
My digi stamp is from Bugaboo Stamps
and it is called Cupcake with a Cherry On Top

Come over and play with us!!!!! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
