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!

Let's Scrap Sketches.

I am happy to announce that I am a new DT member
first post for them and I couldn't be more excited to 
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!


Sketches in Thyme/Scrap It With a Song

It's hard to believe that it's March 1st already!
Where does the time go???
In any event, I am happy to post a layout I did for 
two design teams, Scrap It With a Song, and Sketches In Thyme.

For Scrap It With a Song, our pop song this month is One Republic's, Counting Stars
(If you click on the link, it will put you to a you tube video with the lyrics to the song)
My inspiration from the song came from the title. While my layout was not
counting stars, it was "counting bones".  A little more appropriate, I thought
to go along with our photo of our dog Duke who is always trying to figure
out how to get more treats!  So below is the sketch Bev Code made for us to use,
and my layout !  I hope you enjoy it and it gives you some inspiration!

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!
