Wrapping It Up

Some of the insanity of the last 3 months is starting to wind down. I feel like I have hardly been at home. School wraps up in 2 1/2 weeks and everyone is looking forward to it. The layout from above is from last year. Hopefully we have a nice hot summer so we can do lots of this, picnics and being generally lazy. Crossing my fingers!

Craving Summer

Even though the weather is slowly getting warmer here, I am dying for summer to officially maker her appearance. In the meanwhile, I am having a wonderful time with the Fly a Kite line by October Afternoon (in stock at Scrapbooker's Club House, by the way). It has some vintage-y patterns and the colours are phenomenal. Sigh. Oh, summer, come back soon!

It is with a heavy heart that I decided to resign from the Journaling Junkie Design Team. It was a tough decision. JJ is really close to my heart as I have been there since it started over 2 years ago. Stephanie is a dream to work with but I have been feeling quite overwhelmed over the last few months. Between running my own business, taking care of 2 very active kids, a husband and a household along with volunteer work, I was starting to feel burnt out. I wish Stephanie and the rest of the JJ team all the best. You ladies rock!!! Thank you for having me all this time.

There is a design team call on over at JJ so see my sidebar link and head over. You'll be working with a great bunch of women! :0)

Looking back...

A friend of mine sent me this picture of my daughter that was taken 5 years ago. She was a petite 3 years old then and on this night she was going to perform onstage for the first time. My poor little ballerina was terrified! It is funny how much she has blossomed since then. I guess that's why I love scrapbooking. It helps me not forget those little things that would otherwise slip away.

Peeve Me Off!

I always have a bit of trouble doing layouts about myself because I don't actually have many pictures of me. So I end up posing and looking a little like I have a stick up my butt! LOL I gues this is what happens when you are used to being behind the camera, as opposed to in front of it. Anyway, this layout was done in conjunction with Journaling Junkie and talking about pet peeves. You know, those little things that get under your skin. Looking at this now, it reminds me of an important lesson: don't sweat the small stuff.
Thanks for looking and have a great day y'all!

It's Still Rock 'n' Roll To Me....

...or it might be jazz or classical or...well, some kind of music! I have loved, LOVED music for as long as I can remember so I quite enjoyed this Journaling Junkie challenge. Rather than making a list of favorite cd's or something like that, I journaled about music makes me feel. And it makes me feel a lot. I can get totally lost in a song. For someone that lives in her head quite often, music is a wonderful escape from my worries and stresses. What does music do for you?

Sketch Contest

I am getting more and more into card making. It takes way less time than a layout and it's so satisfying! Pink Persimmon is having a blog hop sketch challenge and I thought I would take part. I adore sketches big time! The top 3 cards use just the sketch as inspiration while and bottom have the additional elements of paper piecing (my gingerbreadman) and flowers and buttons on the last one. Thanks for looking!
