SC Sketch # 310...

I actually did a double pager on this one Sketch # 310. I have sooooo many pictures from the
Corvette Museum that Kim took of the boys. I ended up making him an entire album using this
Cruisn line from CTMH. Sorry it is so Blurry.

Scrapbook Challenges Sketch # 307

Happy Monday Everyone!

My week last week was a bit CRAZY!! Still getting into the swing of things with the kids off to school. WE have Volleyball and Flag Football on top of that. Now that Ayla is a Senior this year
there are lots of things going on with that as well. Preparing for College, looking for Scholarships
and so on. My DH is home again this week fr vacation so I am not sure how much time I will ahve scrapping. However I know he will be playing golf a few days. I did manage to get about 8 layouts completed last week but have not photographed them yet so be on the look out for those. I am also working on a Fabulous kit from Kropss. This month we are working with the Echo Park Paradise Beach. The kit is packed full of goodness.~ Have  a Blessed week~

Scrapbook Challenges Sketch # 306....

Chace had the best time helping us out with the gardening this year. If he could stay outside
and play in the dirt 24/7 he soo would. Be sure to stop by Scrapbook Challenges this week

shop talk....

These pictures are of Denise's dd Emmy the last time they came down in March. Denise gave me
this OA line so I had fun playing with it.

Monkey Business..

This really is so not me at all. Denise gave me the strips of paper and the title and monkey.
I think they came from a really old swap on 2 peas, so I used it with the pictures of Chace playing under the coffee table.

Let's Play...

A few weeks ago my friend Denise and her children came to visit from VA for about 6 days. We scrapped and scrapped. I completed about 26 layouts and she completed over 50. I am a slow scrapepr, hehehehe. Thought I would share this one of Ayla when she was 3 at her daycare. I used a ton of scraps that Denise gave me from her using her scraps..

SC Sketch # 305

Happy Monday!!!

Wow! What a week it has been. We took the kiddos on a mini vacation last week to Franklin, TN.
I know many people are floored that we would take a vacation an hour and a half away. But we had fun. My DH is a major History Buff and he ahs wanted to go there to see a few Battlefields. The girls and I hit every store and mall around, lol shopping for school clothes and scrappy supplies. We have lived in Tn for 2 years now and I think we have just about covered the state now exploring different areas, so next year we are heading to Florida for vacation!!

Any who above is Scrapbook Challenges Sketch # 305 and I decided to flip it just a little and use Chace's first Baseball team picture. I tried to blur some of it so no one will get upset for me posting.
have a great week.
