Here are a couple of my newest layouts!
I have THREE yes THREE layouts of Noah sitting here
that I started and just can't finish! :( I'm just not satisfied with them so they are sitting there waiting to be finished! I will not start another layout for Ciaara until I finished the three I have started for Noah!! What can I say, I'm a girl and I just "go" for the pinks and the flowers!
Anyways I'm pretty happy with both of these layouts, I love the picture of Ciaara holding the caterpillar!! I really love all these pictures I'm glad to have them scrapped!

Well I did it! I turned 30! It really didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. I think the worst part was just knowing it was coming.
This picture Nate took of me my last day of being 29--I plan to scrap it for my All about Me album.
I had a GREAT birthday and a GREAT weekend celebrating with my friends.
I have a couple of new layouts I hope to take pictures of and get them here later.

Here are my 2 latest layouts. I laugh everytime I look at Noahs, its so silly the way he hogs his whole bed. Hes really hard to sleep with, he kicks alot because he wants his space. I used Rob and Bob papers and stickers on his page with Sassafras Lass dot stamps around the photos and a Sassafras Lass Bracket stamp.
For Ciaara's layout I used Primas flowers, and my new Technique Tuesday stamps that I just got in the mail. Love them!
She is so cute and loves to wear fun "dress up" items!

Thanks for looking :)

My Baseball "Kids"

We went outside yesterday to enjoy the fall day, we all played baseball even me!
It was soo nice just to be outside and enjoy the beautiful day we had, it was sunny
and in the 50's! I'm not looking forward to the long winters that come every year!
Anyways, I took a ton of pictures yesterday these are some of my favorites.

My cool new stamps came in the mail yesterday! I already used some of them on a layout last night (I'll try and get that posted soon)

I LOVE LOVE my new stamps, I want more!!

This package came for me today from my Secret Sister at Memory Creators. I love everything in it and can't wait to play with it all!
Thank you Secret Sister! :)

Its amazing what can happen with our weather we can go from a beautiful day at the Apple Orchard with Ciaara and her class. It was about 70 degrees and just a lovely fall day!

Not even a week later it is FREEZING, only 30 degrees and snowflakes flying at Noah wearing a winter jacket and hat before school!

The Joys of living "Up North"!!!!

Finally I got some scrapping in and have done these layouts over the last couple days!
I had fun doing each one, I feel in kind of a "funk" though using solids backgrounds with just a bit of patterned paper--I seem to be stuck on that look lately! I do like all of these though and they all came together fairly easy! I also have a thing for brackets and arrows and chipboard--- lol who am I kidding I just LOVE everything scrapping and want all the latest goodies! :)

I ordered some stamps today from scrappersXchange -- some new Technique Tuesday stamps! I get a dollar off for every 10 points I had saved. I had 45 points saved, you get a point for every dollar you spend--I saved 4 dollars and 50 cents, plus she discounted my shipping since it was only stamps. I am pretty happy with my purchase and only spent 16 dollars :D
I have my eye on the new CherryArte Stamps too, they will probably be next!

Anyways, I just wanted to get my layouts up here! Have a GREAT night :)

I can not believe it is October already!! Where does the time go??
Its fall, my birthday is coming, Halloween is right around the corner!

Well we had a SUPER busy, exciting weekend. We went down to the cities on both Saturday and Sunday to see the last of the regular season Twins games. We had free passes for games and got our tickets weeks ago, the kids (especially Noah) love going to the games. The Twins clinched a playoff spot earlier in the week so we were excited to see them play this weekend especially with a chance to win the division on the line! So many things had to happen though; we had to win, the Tigers had to lose.
Bottom line: The TWINS took the division!! It was SOOO exciting to be there and experience that! Noah got interviewed by KARE 11 television station and part of it was shown on the news last night. Such a big deal for the biggest little baseball fan I know!!

I got my first Design Team package in the mail on Friday and have to get to work on some things for that! How exciting!!

I could write more today but I have to much to do! Happy October everyone!
