SCRAPATHON in progress

This week Scrappin_Fun is having a SCRAPATHON
for our 6th week in the Summer Scrap-off.
We can make 2 points for every single layout over 6x6
completed my Tuesday at Midnight.
We have a blog where this is posted -- if you care to take a look
I'm on team 2 and we are still in First place -- but only by 8 points.
So, I'll show you what I"ve done so far and then it's back to scrapping the
night away! (if my boys will allow...LOL!)

Jacob tells me in the van today (on our way back from
the pool) that he wants to be "one of those Disney guys!"
SO I ask.. what do you mean one of those Disney Guys.
He says "When I grow up, I want to be a guy who works at
Disney as a Power Ranger!" Then he goes into telling me all about the moves he would make and his full name (which I've forgotten.. but it was cute!)

Anyway, I did this layout for a few things...
1- the scrapathon
2- Sketch at
3- Challenge at

This is just a quick one using some old pictures I had of Jacob. Such a BIG OLE SMILE! He is really an awesome KID!

Another quick one -- 12x6. This size is starting to grow on me. This is Lukas playing at the park in New Port Richey. Using up some old Autumn Leaves stuff... I've got plenty of it.

or so. The photos are of Jacob eating some yummy
watermelon on the 4th of July.

Hump day and new stuff

Hi -- today is Hump day and just another day at work... tons to work on but
I'd rather be doing something else.
Here's a few new things I've worked on lately.
THis was for a challenge on Scrappin_Fun. We had to use at least 100 of one item.. I used rhinestones...
Here's another one for the 100 item challenge... Used up some old brads.
This is a 2 pager (a rare thing for me)
But used a Becky Fleck sketch and I'm happy with the results...
I've seen this face 1000 times... Lukas is so little and gets hurt so fast... poor little guy! I showed him this layout and he grabbed his ear and said "OWIE!"
Here's one of me... I did this one for a design team try out... that I DIDn'T get... oh well.. I like how it turned out.

Another one using ONLY stash items.
Jacob and Lukas acting goofy with their hats.

I made this for a online crop at
Cute site and great ladies over there!

I don't scrap myself that much...
I did this one for a DT call and combined it for the Survivor contest at Scrappin_Fun. I love using PINK! OH, and btw, this was used with SCRAPS.. cool huh.
I've got enough scraps to make about 100 layouts.

A little funny

This morning I'm upstairs getting dressed and I hear this noise..
so I walk downstairs to find Jacob in the laundry room. He had the washer
opened and was pulling out clothes, so I asked him "what are you doing?"
He responded with "putting the wet clothes in the dryer" so I asked "why
are you doing that?" (because he's never done that before, nor have I asked him to--
heck he's only four.)
He responded with "I just 'feeled' like it." Too funny!
He did know how to turn the dryer on.. so I think we are moving in the right
Now, to make him "feeled" like folding them!
