I've been on vacation and haven't done any scrapping :(
I took some great pictures of the kids though!
Tomorrow I am headed to the cities to meet 3 girls from the Memory Creators site that I am a member of! I can't wait!! We are going to the zoo in the morning, then out to lunch and then doing some scrap shopping! I am SUPER excited!

I have bought some new stuff lately especially from Joanns--Last time I was there they had a TON of new stuff! I'll try and snap a picture later on.

Well I just wanted to get this updated!

Here are two 12x12 layouts I finished. I really really like how the sandal one turned out! I am going to try to take pictures of more "things" not just people.

Here are 2 6x6 layouts I finished up yesterday. I like doing the smaller layouts sometimes to get my scrapping "mojo" going and it almost always helps. I one of Ciaara is one of my favorite pictures of her--she looks like an angel. The other one is for my All About Me album of me and my sister.

Whoooohoooo I got 2 layouts done tonight! I used the new Karen Foster stamps that I bought and I just LOVE them!! I love that I bought the small ones and I can't wait to get some bigger ones also!

Both layouts are of Noah--- which is good since I sometimes struggle on doing boy layouts. Girl ones are so easy, I can always add lots of flowers and ribbon so I need to be a little more creative on Noahs. I sewed on both of the layouts and I gotta say I just LOVE this little sewing machine. Like circles, I am LOVING doing the journaling in strips and have been using it ALOT!!

Yesterday I went to the Scrapbook Store that is about 15 miles from my house.... I had a coupon that was only good one day July 8th and I hadn't been there awhile so thought I'd drive over.
I didn't buy much but used my coupon on these snap together stamps from Karen Foster!! I also got two sheets of paper, one Basic Grey and one Rhonna Farrer. I only spent 6 dollars but was happy with my purchase!

Here are a couple more 12x12 layouts that I got done (one yesterday, one today)
I've been having a great time scrapping over the last few days and have even made
a couple cards that you could find in the link to the right.

I got a order from today and have 50 more pictures to go through and scrap!! I got them for next to nothing because you get 50 free for signing up! YAY.

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL 4th of July!! We did!! After lunch we took the kids to a little farm where they got to see some baby animals--a baby cow, bunnies and ducks! They were super excited! Our friends Matt and Jeremiah came over and we played horshoes and badminton and Nate grilled us an AWESOME supper.

We put on a FANTASTIC fireworks display in the backyard after dark and the neighbors came over and so did the guy from the fireworks tent in Nates store----they brought a TON of stuff!! It was soooooo much fun!!

Thought I'd share a picture of the kids in their "party hats"!!

Here is a layout I did today! It is the first time I used my new sewing machine on a layout! I LOVED it! lol I am trying to include myslef in more pictures and have started an All About Me album that is a smaller size, a 6x6. I have a hard time scrapping myself so it took me awhile to finish this one today but I do like this page.

Here is a picture of my best little guy at his program on Friday for the elderly at the Continuing Care Center. It was soooo cute listening to the kids sing. They made their own hats and collars and looked great! They sang around 15 songs some of which included ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle, If you are Happy and you Know it, Miss Mary Mack, Mr. Sun they wrapped it up by singing Yankee Doodle.

Thought I'd share a picture of the stuff I got at the dollar store! I stopped at one because the scrapbook store wasn't open and I could NOT believe what I found! K and Company--Marcella by K-- Basic Grey--and Scrapworks just to name a few!

I was excited and spent a little tooo much-- I will be going back
