Memory Lane

Well I have been doing lots of cleaning and organizing around here (and trying to get my act together ha ha!) Yesterday I was cleaning in my scrap area and finding old photos of the boys, layouts that haven't gotten put in albums yet (I know I'm not the only one with big stack of layouts sitting around!) and other goodies. It made me realize how fast time is flying by. The boys are getting so big it seems hard to remember when they were babies. The beauty of this hobby is freezing those moments in time and preserving them. So many sweet memories would be lost otherwise. So keep fighting the good fight and keep scrapping those photos! =)

Here is a favorite layout of Jon I was reminded of in my cleaning spree:

What a cutie! (I know I'm biased though.) Well, have a good rest of the weekend and God bless and protect those in the path of Irene on the east coast.

Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #6!

Here we are again with another Scrapping Everyday Miracles challenge. This one is about the special friendships that we have in our lives. I chose to do a layout about the friendship that my mom and I have. I feel so blessed that we are good friends and that I get to see her often. I am very thankful for our relationship, she is the best! You can join in our challenge too and have a chance to win a great prize. Head on over to SEM and check out all the details and to link up your project. Happy scrapping and take time to tell those special people in your life that you appreciate them!

Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #5!

It's that time again – time for another Scrapping Everyday Miracles challenge! I loved this one since I'm fond of doing humorous layouts anyway and the boys are such good subjects for such things. It is called "I couldn't help but LAUGH!" and is about finding those things in life that just make you laugh. I've been wanting to do this layout for AGES and this challenge finally spurred me on. (Isn't that the great thing about challenges?) The Dr. Spoonface photo is of Jon when he was 17 mos. old and the Superdog Greg photo is recent. Love them, those guys make me laugh.

So click on over to the SEM blog for full details. Link up your take on the challenge and you could win the sponsor prize or be chosen to be a guest designer. I bet you have funny photos and stories just waiting to be scrapped.

August?? Really?

I can't believe it's already August! Where has this summer gone? School starts in two weeks and my head is spinning with all the "get ready for fall" stuff on my to-do list. What happened to summer lasting until Labor Day? Alas. Well, I'm still going to try to hang onto that summer time feeling while I work on my to-do list, lol. In the meantime, here is a layout for you celebrating summer. It's not too late to go buy a box of popsicles.
