Nine, Ten, Eleven

Once again, trying to catch up with all the challenges and share all the layouts I created during scrap weekend.  Sorry for all the multiple layout posts.  February brings new layouts, new challenges, new sharing!

This Glitz collection was perfect for the colors my 
daughter wore the first day of school!! I am thrilled
with the way this page turned out! 

October sketch from Sketches in Thyme
Our House of E...: fabulous





LOVE this Shimelle Collection.  And the gold accents from Heidi Swapp PL were perfect with it.

Six, Seven and Eight

Here are a few more layouts from my scrap weekend (bringing) me up to posting 8 layouts or pages!



For those of you who don't know, we have a ski area less than five minutes away from our house. 
 So neat to be able to say that, although I do not ski!!
Memories In Thyme





My son doesn't like soda.  But he had to drink some soda from the bottle that had his name on it!





An oldie pic: playing the game of life with my brother, 3 cousins, and then boyfriend 
(who yes is now my hubby). Fun Memories!!

Happy Scrapping,

Old Layouts!

Hello!!  Sharing some layouts that I created back in the fall using Jillibean Soup 
collections (Cold Avocado Soup and Chilled Cucumber Soup ~ currently on sale at tMN)! 
I am pretty sure they were also created with sketches from months ago.  Will add those
when I figure out which ones! 








Please let me know if comment verification is on.  A bloggy friend notified me that it was, 
which is weird because I had it.   I checked my settings a little while ago it was not 
turned on.  Hmmmm!?!?!   I do not want it on so I would love your help so I can fix it.


Happy Scrapping,

29 Layouts

Hello Ladies.  I am back from my scrapbook weekend with my friends.  It was such a great time and I got so much accomplished.  I also, as you probably noticed, took a break from social media.  I will be back full swing to share all my layouts with you and to visit your blogs.





May need to retake these pictures.  No sun today with the blizzard moving in.
We are hunkered down for the night with no school tomorrow.  Keeping my 
fingers crossed we don't lose electricity!!

Happy staying warm,

ONE little WORD!!

I know...it has taken me FOREVER to share my OLW.  
I originally had a different word but it wasn't working for me.  

My OLW = positive

Thanks to my mom for helping me choose this word.  A couple of months back it was Whoopi Goldberg's birthday and I happened to catch the end of the View.  She said something about how she is grateful to be here another year.   Now, I always seem to get a little bummed on New Year's, my kids' birthdays and my birthday.  I hate thinking about how fast the time is going and how my babies are growing.  But Whoopi made me realize that it is more than being bummed it is being grateful to be here.  

So I want to be positive....
about enjoying each milestone (years passing)
about losing weight and taking care of myself
about others even when they aren't positive
 etc., etc, etc.








Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy being positive,

Excuses, Excuses!!!

I know.  I always have an "excuse" for being absent.  You ladies amaze me with your regular posting and visiting of blogs.  Believe me...I always love seeing what you all create, which is why when I haven't been by in a few days I try to comment on all the things I missed.  Plus, I appreciate the time you take to visit my blog and truly enjoy having you as my bloggy friend.  

This past week I have been preparing for my darling daughter's 12th birthday - a Winter Wonderland.  Here is what I have been up to. Thanks for letting me share and ....

Happy Sunday,




 

  









Photo booth pictures - some will look better once they are cropped down.  
Didn't have time to do that!


       











To quote my mom - the party went out with a bang when I got a
phone call from a neighbor saying that two cars parked outside
my house were totaled.  Who would ever think they would hear
those words!?!?  We are just glad everyone was safe inside 
singing four verses of Happy Birthday [too loud to hear the bang].
I am still in utter disbelief!!!






P.S. Yes...they did find the guy.
