I made a new layout for the Scrappers Boutique. I used Teresa Collins SPRING FLING line. It has really beautiful colors in pink, reds, teal and green. It went perfectly with some pictures of my grand daughter when she was 2 years old. Hope you like it! Cherie should have some kits made up soon if you want to stop by the Scrappers Boutique and make one your self!!!

I had a bunch of leftover paper and butterflies and stickers, so I decided to make a couple of cards. There is always a ton of left over scraps when making a layout, so instead of throwing it out - Make a few cards and make someones day!!!

The reason I've not posted

So here are some hints as to why I havent posted in a while... See if you can guess...

I'm at a place that is only open in the summer.
It requires a lot of water to operate.
It is SO much fun!

Can you guess where I've been or what I've been doing???

If you guessed I am working at Hawaiian Falls, then you are right!
Hawaiian Falls is a new water park they opened last summer in Roanoke (only 15 minutes from my house in Keller) and I am now having a blast where I am working!!!
But sadly, it is keeping me busy that I havent been able to scrap in a while - but I promise to get back to that soon!!!

If you havent checked out Hawaiian Falls, then you must go one day soon! It is so much fun!!!

Here are more pics!!! Enjoy!!!

These are some of the fun people I work with. The middle one in the red shirt is my oldest DD. She's been working here for 2 years now. Lead Lifeguard!

New Projects

I have made a couple of new layouts and a project recently, so I thought I would share them with you now. I am so excited because a lot of the new CHA releases are coming out and they are so beautiful!

My first project is a white printers trey that I decorated with Little Yellow Bicycles Saturdays line. This line is so beautiful for just your everyday pictures with lots of blues that remind me of blue jeans, reds, creams, beautiful flowers and lots and lots of different embellishments. I decorated it up with flowers and bling and used pictures of one of my kids favorite past times... riding and enjoying horses.

My next project is a double page layout I made using Teresa Collins new Fabrications Canvas line. She has 2 new Fabrications lines, one being called Linen and the other Canvas. They are different but also similar enough that they can be used together and inter mixed. There are so many colors in each line that you could also make several layouts with each line using the different colors introduced and still come out with totally different looks. I love the teals and purples and oranges and shades of coral.
My first layout is using mostly the Canvas line:

My other layout is using Teresa Collins Fabrications Linen line. This line is absolutely gorgeous as well, and I also incorporated some of my favorite bling and products from Prima which I love so much! This line has the most beautiful cranberry/orange/coral tones, with black, creams, and greens.
This was a really fun layout to make and it turned out beautiful. ENJOY!

Becca is now in TRACK!

Becca did basketball and cross country and now is in track. She competed in her first track meet last Thursday and ran in the 4x200 and the 4x400. We were there from 4:30pm - 9pm! It was a long evening but she did great! She placed 3rd in the 4x200 meter and 2nd place in the 4x400 meter! She loves running!

Flowers for Mom

Ethan has been coming home from school the last couple of days with flowers he has picked on the way home from school. He is always so sweet and always thinking of ways to show his mommy how much he loves me!
Here are a few pics:


I have made several new layouts that I haven't posted, so I thought I would post them now!
The first layout is a layout I made for page of the week for The Boutique a little while back using the Gathering paper line from Authentique.  It was perfect for the pumpkin patch pics I took back in October - November with the browns, teals, oranges and light blues and I added some teal glitter thickers that I inked up to dirty them up a bit and tone them down to match the layout. It was a big hit at the store!

I also made a layout for when Rebecca went to Horse Camp last summer using the My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally line. It was perfect with the red and browns and the wood textures. The left side was completely inspired for the MME website and then I made the matching right side since I like 2 page layouts.

I also made a cool interactive layout using a paper line called Sincerely from a brand new paper company that launched it's paper lines at the last CHA. They are called Trinity Paper Arts and right now they have 3 new lines they just came out with. You can check them out here:
The Sincerely line is a beautiful combination of blacks, greys, and burgundy. I made a double page layout using pictures from when Ellie and Caleb went to a murder mystery dinner. It came out really nice!

And lastly is a layout I made this past Christmas using the beautiful glittery and red Lost and Found Christmas line from My Minds Eye. I taught a class at The Scrappers Boutique with this line and I had a few things left over, so I thought I would go ahead and use them and made this double page layout. It turned out quite nice!

New Year

Well, I have been missing for a while here... there has been so much going on.
Hubby had to have knee surgery (3rd time - but 1st on this knee) a few days before Christmas and 2 days before we left for Arkansas.
We went to my brothers in Arkansas for Christmas and had a great time with 15 people all under the same roof!
Came back home and had a quiet New Years Eve... In bed by 10:30pm since I wasnt feeling well and fighting a head cold.
But now I am feeling better and ready to start a new year.
I joined Move Move & Eat Well with Cathy Zielske on Big Picture Scrapbooking and set a few goals for myself:
1. Move More - exercise at least 3x a week
2. Drink More Water & Less Diet Coke - Drink at least 4-8 glasses of water before having a dc
3. Go to bed early - Attempting to go to bed by 10 - 10:30pm
4. Eat Well - Eat more Fruits and Veggies and less fast food
5. Get more organized with my whole life

So far so good but I have a retreat soming up next weekend, so I am not so sure how I am going to do there on the 4 items on my list!
Till next time...
