A Good Day

I seem to be having a good day! I have managed to get a lot done. I cleaned up the house, ran all my errands, got some work done, organized a teacher appreciation lunch and still got some scrapping in! Here is a plaque I altered. I saved it from the garbage when we were cleaning things up at the church - I hated the gold color around the outside and I am not a coffee person so I painted it black, covered it with patterned papers that match the colors in my scrap room and of course added a pic of my beautiful little niece. A few flowers, a little chipboard and some bling and tada! Something much prettier!



 I also did this LO for a challenge on ScrapFit to use numbers on your LO and at Flying Unicorn to do a purple LO. It is hard to find good purple paper!

Hot Springs

Hot Springs, AR has become one of our favorite vacation spots! We loved it so much we bought a time share week there. Having four boys means going on vacation places where they can hike and climb around - and of course you can't go to the National Park without sticking you hand in the water to see if it is really hot - well it is - 143 degrees worth!

This LO is based on a sketch from My Scraps & More and for a challenge at Flying Unicorn to do a LO about boys and ScrapFit to journal "around" something.

Well... I ran away from home!

I hit a scrappy slump! I know we all do. Life got busy, work was hectic and the boys were going 20 different directions. BUT I have an awesome husband! He took off work Monday and handled life for two days so I could retreat. I was able to go to our time share in East TX and just relax and unwind - and guess what! I actually got a few pages done! Sooooo here is my return to scrappiness:

These are all based on sketches from My Scraps & More:

This LO was to scrap something you are proud of - this is my oldest DS and I am so proud of the young man he has become - we had a rough start, but he is very hardworking, caring and compassionate!

This LO was for a challenge at Scrap Friendzy to scrap someone who inspires you. This is my Mother-In-Law who battled breast cancer and won - she has always been a fighter!

This LO is for a challenge I posted on Scrap Friendzy - in honor of breast cancer awareness we are doing "Think Pink" Challenges all month long. My challenge was to create a LO where "Real Men Wear Pink" and to scrap a boy or man and use pink on the LO!

This one is based on a sketch from Sketchy Thurdays and I made it for a challenge on Scrap Friendzy to scrap "Overcoming a Challenge" - the boys faced the challenge of riding a skim board, I'm not completely sure they overcame it though!
