Hi All!!

just a quick post to show you my recent layouts, the first one using Zany Zinnia's kit and savvy ribbon for a challenge on Savvy n sassy's RIbbon rave contest, the second one for a challenge at Scrapbookers Clubhouse using a sketch there, and using my newest MOSH POSH kit, LOVE new goodies to work with and can i just say the bazzill bling flowers are amazing.

FYI, there was a conversation not long ago between dd and i, actually when she was organizing all my scrapbook flowers into colors/jars and she asked "how come you don't have any black flowers mom"? well i decided i have black paint and white blossom, make one LOL. but i just got an awesome box of stuff from Lisas Scrap shack today and in there was a package of black bling blossoms so expect to see those on a layout soon.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

to all my friends and family who are MOMS, hope you had a special day and were treated to breakfast in bed or lunch out or something to make you smile and feel appreciated. I hope my mom and grandma are having a great time on their trip, i want to say thanks for all you do and LOVE you both. Here is a fun page i did yesterday in honor of my Grandma who is amazing, riding a bike at her age, so active and strong, i hope i am like that in my golden years. This was for the ribbon RAVE contest at Savvy N Sassy, great challenges so far.

I got a dozen beautiful red roses from my family, so thoughtful, and was a lovely relaxing day. the believe layout i did for my dt assignment at Timeless Inspirations and i just had fun mixing the black with the cool colors of the patterned paper.

the Love2Scrap site is still down, going into withdrawal here so hope its up and running real soon, miss you guys.

Soccer starts tonight and the kids are sooo anxious to get out on the field, weather is looking up, green grass everywhere and the trees are popping so i am glad to see the blah brown disappear.
this week will fly by with lots of stuff going on, always an adventure. Chow for now.

May Day May Day

My schedule for May is looking quite busy so i hope to have a little scrap time between soccer practices, 4-H events, work and all the other things that spring brings. Hope everyone had a great National Scrapbook Day and celebrated with fellow scrappers online or at a real crop. I did a few pages but was a rather hectic weekend and with having our main computer crash and getting a replacement (at quite a steal i might add) and all that entails my brain was on technology overload LOL.

Anyway, for those who hang out with me at Love2Scrap the site is down for maintenance and will hopefully be up today or tomorrow so keep checking back. A good time was had by all at Timeless Inspirations and the challenges are still up and not due till wednesday nite so if you are looking for some ideas and inspiration be sure to stop by the SPring Fling forum for a looksee. Rhea and Share over at SavvynSassy have again put together some beautiful coordinating ribbon kits and i can hardly wait for them to arrive in my mailbox. I'll share a couple layouts i did recently that i love.

Oh and i forgot to shout out a big THANK YOU to Em (wordsmith) for the awesome weekend we had there scrapping and visiting and it was a great retreat. I completed 15 layouts so it was productive for me too.

here are 4 of the ones i did at Em's, and i have to share pics of my puppies, oh i love them, they are sooooo adorable. ANd thanks to my cousin Jana for sharing pics she has taken of her precious daughter Kayla, what a ham for the camera.

Mom, so sad you are not coming for your annual spring visit, we will miss our crib tourney but hope to see you soon.
