Having some summer fun?

We were able to get out to the campground for 3 days this past week, and had so much fun... The first 2 days were unbearably hot but we survived... the 3rd day was dreary and cool, but was very much welcomed by me, I'm most comfortable in jeans and a sweatshirt. LOL! Tons of pictures were taken, so I'd say the trip was a success ;) I got some great ones of Brayden trying out the water, he wasn't all that pleased with it for the most part, but I think he was grateful for the cool down!

Sketchy Thursdays has a neat sketch this week, I'm always trying to get out of my comfort zone regarding using more than one picture on a layout so this was PERFECT.

I'm hoping to get some more time at the scrap table this weekend, and maybe reorganize my space a bit.... Have a great weekend, everyone!

Feeling the mojo?

I have been! It's been so great to sit back at the table and get some layouts done. Been working on some challenges from the LIITD members online crop, there are so many to choose from!

We're headed out to the lake to camp for a few nights, so I guess no scrapping will get done in the next week.... hopefully next weekend! :)

Feeling Scrappy?

Love is in the Details is having a summer long member-run online crop! Lots of challenges and games posted already and July isn't even halfway over!! If you aren't a member of the gallery/forum, I encourage you to join up and take part! Lots of the members are offering up prizes for their challenges so it's a great incentive ;) Click right HERE for the challenges, and become a member to have some fun!!!

This layout was done for one of Kim's challenges to use lots of techniques... so I inked, sanded, distressed, stickled, rounded my papers corners....

It's another dreary rainy day here, so I think I might just continue on with a few more challenges... :)

Scrappy Therapy!

I am so thrilled to report that my little guy's first open heart surgery went AMAZINGLY well, he is such a trooper... slowly getting back to his usual self but with more energy and a healthier appetite than ever before!! It is amazing what surgeons can do these days, his doctor performed a small miracle and saved a valve that they thought was kaput. He still might need it replaced eventually, but not right now which is a very very good thing. :)

But onto scrapping! I decided since Brayden and his Daddy took off to his brothers out of town and my other 3 kids are pretty self sufficient, I would sit at the table and see what I could accomplish. Sketchy Thursdays is always a great inspiration to me lately, so I thought I'd see what this weeks sketch was like! No printer ink, so I dove into the Disneyland pics that still need a home in my scrapbooks and found these 2 pictures of the divine creations they made on a daily basis. Almost too good looking to eat!!

Ooooh and I am soooo excited that for my birthday this year, my man bought me a Canon Rebel T3!!!! I'm slowly figuring it out, it'll take me awhile though... so right now it's a lot of automatic shots, no manual stuff just yet. In time, in time... ;)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Mine will continue to be a scrappy one.. even though it's so damp and muggy that my papers are all curling up at the edges as I work on a page... LOL!
