breathe in - breathe out

and try to sleep more! ugh, so tired today, a month ago was scrapfest and i feel like i haven't had much recoup time since then. visiting with my MIL and my mom and step dad was great, we had a good time although i worked a lot of extra hours at school so feel guilty about that but what else could i do. so i guess i'm just in need of a day to myself to relax and maybe scrap!!!! oh, as luck would have it i happen to be going with my good friend Janet to a crop not far away friday, staying overnite and scrapping all day saturday so bring it on!!! i should go prep for that i guess. Heres a layout i did for POTP Phenominal Pursuit, man those challenges and the quick scrappers there are making me scrap faster than ever before!! its good for a change, don't think to much just do!!!

my recent creations

Thought i'd share a couple of my recent layouts, this first one is from summer in the okanagan, my girlfriend margaret has the cutest twin girls and they had a blast playing in the water with lindsey. Used the new Fontwerks Henna stamps and AL Journalling stamp, a 3 Bugs DT project for Love2Scrap.

the second one is my cousins daughter Kayla having fun with her new bubble blowing toy this past summer. Wanted to thank Sheryl for supplying me with the quickutz alphas and bookplates for this, was for the survivor contest on ScrapbookingSwede but i didn't win, sure would have loved to win that quickutz tool and alpha but thems the breaks!!!

and this last one is a picture of me in my new outfit ready to face my classmates at my 20th high school reunion in July!!! talk about nerves but it was an amazing, awesome experience that i will remember for years, just sorry my close friends weren't able to be there but you make sure you attend our 25th!!! this was a DT project using WRMK for Scrapbookers clubhouse.

Fall splendor

has been pretty nice here this past week, but the wind has definitely sped up the fall process and i am sad to see the trees baring off. Got some good pics of the kids though and a few with their Grandma Heinricks who was visiting this past week.

Scrapfest - whew

what a great weekend, so much fun meeting so many great online friends that i've known for a long time but only "virtually". I really enjoyed the maya road class i took, being t.a. for Ali Edwards was da bomb and look forward to chatting with her tomorrow nite on Love2Scrap, should be great fun, she's such a hoot. Am going to try again to post some pics from the event and hoping blogger cooperates tonite - thanks Renee and Nikki, you were great roomies and you too janna, thanks for the timmies too!!! To my Scrapbookers clubhouse gang, we were serious scrappin gals in our black and pink, sorry i didn't have more time to hang with ya!!!
