A Few New Pages

Well, my favorite scrap mag, Scrap N' Art is holding a DT call! So I entered. I had to try. I love Scrap N' Art... that would be my current biggest scrap dream/goal. There are so many talented designers hanging out there, I doubt I have a chance, but I had to try. :)

I finally got a couple blinkies working on my blog too... check them out, they are great sites!

Here's a few new pages:

PP is DCWV, bling swirls are Prima, bling flowers are The Paper Studio, Blue Flowers are American Crafts, Font is jellyka_estra from

CS is Hobby Lobby, eyelets are Making Memories, letters are american Crafts (red) Rusty Pickle (orange), and Provo Craft.

Milena gave Pooh pink panties this summer. The Journaling says "yes, pooh is a boy, but since when does that matter to a 2 year old girl who thinks pink panties are the ultimate accessory?"

PP is Provo Craft, CS is Hobby Lobby, Paint is Apple Barrel, Letters are American Crafts (brown) KiMemories (Pooh), and Provocraft (summer) Chipboard is KI Memories

M is 3!

How is that possible? My baby is three. I asked her yesterday why she was growing up so fast and she said, "It's ok, Mom, I can be two for one more day." What a sweet girl! :)

Here are some fun facts about M at 3:

  • Her favorite blanket still HAS to be with her at bedtime.

  • She is 70% potty trained now... but we haven't started on nighttime training yet.

  • She Love the park, the library, and all things summer.

  • She is sypathetic and compassionate, and love God already.

Her Daddy and I are so proud of her! Here are a few pics:

Oh, and one more thing!

Just wanted to give a shout out to two new scrapbook sites that I am really enjoying:

Apple Blossom Studio

and Pink Sketches blog

Both of them are looking for a new design team this week, and I am going to get my applications in! I would love to work on either of these two sites, as I think they are both fantastic!

Summer is winding down!

How is it possible that summer is coming to an end already? The kids here start school next week, on the 13th. Wow. So soon...

I haven't had much scrapping time recently. We've been too busy! I do have a few new things to show, though. I'll post pictures later today, if I get the chance.

Quick family update:

Nichole is with us this week for her last week of vacation. she is reading a lot, since she can't seem to put the latest book in the current series down! Last week she helped with picking green beans, and also got to spend a fun day with a few of her friends from church. We are working on planning a fun family activity so we can enjoy our last weekend with her before school starts again.

Milena and Elijah are doing well, nothing too exciting going on.

More soon!
