Happy Wednesday

Nothin much happening today with me just work. The girls went to soccer camp and Alex to boy scout camp. Tomorrow is a big day though, my boy turns 10!!! Double digits...where has the time gone??
Here is a 2-page layout I finished...I only had to add photos as it was a class by one talented lady, Andrea. Pictures are from Maddie's birthday a couple of years ago. Have a great day!

I'm Back :)

My daughter and her best friend since Kindergarten
My sisters boys playing football.
Natalie, Andrea & Carrie...Scrappin' Sports & More DT
Me :), Renee & Jennifer....more of the SS&M DT. Notice all the cameras on the table :)

I can't believe I have been home for 5 days already and have not posted anything. I had a wonderful time at CHA. There are always so many new wonderful papers, embellishments, die cuts. It becomes almost too much to take in. I don't know how the buyers can make decisions.

I loved meeting the ladies on the SS&M DT. Jennifer, you are just as I, bubbly, fun of laughter. Renee & Natalie, I have to say you both surprised me a little. You both are much more outgoing & crazy IRL than I would have expected. Loved getting to meet all 3 of you!!! Carrie, glad we could hang out again this year. Andrea, it wasn't the same without you there, our prayers are with you. Tracy, glad I found you booth this year, I even walked by more than once!! Lori, Dawn, Brian glad we could all do dinner & desert.
I was really excited that Kitty Foster & Wendy McKeehan were at CHA signing their new book Fabulous Friendships. I was LUCKY enough to have 2 layouts in the book. It was one of the main highlights of the show for me this year.

New Playlist

A big thanks to Renee' for having a playlist on her blog. I listened to it MANY times over the last couple of weeks when scrappin' for CHA. I had my daughter Victoria create my own tonight. A lot of Renee's songs ended up on my list too.

I decided to participate in a scraplift challenge over at A Cherry On Top. Here is my entry, love this picture of Maddie & the inspiration for my sketch.

What else? More Scrappin' Sports projects

I spent another day playing with the new releases from SS&M today. It's amazing all the different things you can create with these papers.

Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. Mark decided to take the kids to the cottage, so I was able to do some scrappin' today. I completed 4 layouts & a journal today. Still can't finish the altered box & frame I started....can't seem to find the right combination. Maybe tomorrow :)
