Spring has Sprung!

I wrote this post back in November 2012 and posting it now for #TBT Throwback Thursday!

I am sure most scrapbookers like me are always behind when it comes to scrapbooking certain pictures.  I can always find some winter, spring, summer or fall activity that I have put off becasue I am inundated with pictures.  The layout featured here is made with Jillibean Soup collection Southern Chicken Dumpling.

Hope you enjoyed a little spring at this time of year.
Happy Scrapping and Shopping!

A few things lately...

I  know I have been quite busy but thought it would be neat to share what has taken up my time lately.  And I have been getting back to visiting your blogs - which really makes me feel accomplished.  And believe it or not, all the good things I am seeing is making miss and want to scrap.  YAY!!

 - Got a part time job at a nursery school as a substitute (with the chance that it could turn into more).
    LOVE it!!  I actually was called in to work about 9 different sessions in May and June.  And let me     tell you, that little time spent with 3 or 4 year olds is tiring!!

- Baseball season for my son...need I say more?  Who by the way, pitched this season and really likes    it.

- STEPS training with my daughter and a model clay longhouse with my son.

- End of the school year concerts and activities: son's instrumental concert, daughter's chorus concert, son's piano recital, daughter volunteering at her school's 50 year celebration, and this weekend it will all (sort of) end with my daughter's dance recital!!!  I am so excited about this.  We are at a new studio this year and the ballet classes put on a production.  The show is only 1 hour long and the production is the Lion King!!  She is an AMAZING dancer.  So proud of my two kiddos.

Instrumental Concert and Piano Recital

Choral Concert

My daughter had to dress like the 60's (if possible).  Like the hair style?


And a sneak peek at the Lion King outfit
(no make-up or hair done). 

- Reading:  5 books our of my goal of 20 to read.  And some of you may know this but my reading "season" is April - September.  Thanks for the book suggestions.  I will be checking those out.  Currently reading...

Thanks for letting me share!

Make it Monday No. 42

Happy Monday!  This is the last week of school for my kiddos.  They are out on Thursday!  I believe some of your kids have been out of school for a while now.  Hope their summer vacation is going well.  We need to get some items on our Summer Bucket List.  Do any of you do that?

The challenge this week is a sketch created by Crystal.  I love that is uses two pictures
and has lots of elements.  We hope you will join us in creating a card or a layout.  Crystal 
and I LOVE seeing what you do with our sketches.

Cards and Layouts are welcome!  Today I am starting out by showcasing 
the two beautiful cards created by DT members Svetlana and Rachel.  And then you 
will see all the amazing layouts by the rest of the DT.  Darcy is also back with us
 sharing her final layout as guest designer.  It has been a pleasure to work with 
Darcy and have her share her fabulous creations with us to help inspire you.

Featured Friday May 2015

Hello Ladies.  I feel like this week has been more consistent with blogging.  I had all intentions of commenting on blogs last night but first my computer was running slow and then some weird pop up from a blog caused me to shut down and do a full virus scan.  I felt I needed to explain that for myself because I am trying to get back to blogging and scrapping.

Anyway, the reason for my post today is to share the Featured Friday artists for May.

#TBT Magic

that I never published on the blog but created posts for.  I am going to start sharing

Happy Scrapping,

Welcome Guest Designer Darcy!

This month we are happy to have Darcy from Our House of E join us as a guest designer.  I always love seeing what Darcy creates and am excited to have her play along with us in June.  Join me in welcoming her.  Stop by and check out her blog and read a little bit about her below!

My name is Darcy and I live in a small community in Northern Ontario, Canada. My husband and I are coming up on our 12th anniversary and we have three little girls that keep us very busy. I've been scrapping for about 8 years and when we moved into our new home, I got my very own cave for Christmas!

Sketches are my go to when starting any layout and I love project life! I take a picture a day and post it to my instagram with a little blurb about what was going on and why I chose that pic for the day. When I finally get around to creating the spread for that week, I just copy the journaling and I'm done. Easy.

My style is super simple and super clean. I am a self proclaimed blingaphobe. My blog is called Our House of E... with the E standing for estrogen (my poor hubby!). Thanks to Leslie and the DT here at The Memory Nest for having me!

Here is her first layout from our recent challenge.  Such adorable pictures.  Love the colors in her patterned papers and how they pop on the black paper/compliment her photos!!

Happy Scrapping,
