Not a whole lot of this....

Unfortunately I have not been doing a whole lot of scrapping lately. Both kids have come down with the piggy virus (AKA: H1N1 or Swine Flu) so most of my time is spent cuddling, getting drinks, making soup and administering medicine. Even though they are sick, they are still making me laugh, smile and loving being their mother. Plus it's one of the few times Q actually likes to cuddle for more then a 3 minutes at a crack!

I hope that they get well soon!

Victoria BeckhamThis was my final layout for my week as featured Artista on the Bella Blvd. blog. It was fun to put all my projects together. Thank you to Stephanie and Bella Blvd. for giving me this awesome opportunity.

On another note this was such a fun layout to make. I really should scrapbook my "funny" side more often. I hope you like it.

Another layout for the Bella Blog. I think this is my favorite of the three. It really isnt about how the end result looked, but because I really enjoyed the process of getting to that end result! Using a quote on the layout was my challenge. I of course like the layout but sometimes its not about the end result but its how you get there that counts the most. So, go forth my scrapbooking friends and enjoy the moments that are found in the process. (Oh I'm philisophical today!)

What a good week!

This week I am the featured Artista over at the Bella Blvd. Blog
I couldn't be more excited to share all my projects with everyone there and here this week!!! I think they have easily become some of my favorite pages. Thanks to everyone who has shared love for my work both on the Bella Blog and on my personal blog. It really makes my day!!!

So the following layout is the first of the three that Bella will feature this week. I also shared a little about myself through a game of "You Know Your A Scrapbooker When..." It was really fun to come up with all those ideas and myself and my family got a really good laugh when i was compiling the list.

Can I have this dance?

If I was a twitter person i so would twitter this classic Gracie statement....

"Mom when I get married I want this to be my wedding song!" (Keep in mind she is 7) Don't you think her future husband will love this!!!!!

My newest page...I made this for Club 1 2 3 that I teach at my local scrapbook store. I really love how it turned out. I had been wanting to scrapbook these photos for a long time of Gracie looking at the Jellyfish at the Shedd Aquarium. The pictures are so awesome that I needed a way to scrapbook them that would keep them the focus. I think I finally found a way...

Door County

So, I've been living in Wisconsin now for about 15 years and this was my first trip up to Door county. I've always heard such lovely things about it in every season. Finally this past weekend took me for my first trip. Unfortunately when we got up there this is what it looked like :( Raining and foggy. It stayed that way until..... ...of course the day we left!!! Despite the weather we had a really nice time. I scrapbooked most of the time and he did some cooking as well as we sat out on our poarch drinking wine and watching the fog. LOL

Total side note.....Has anyone ever seen a pumpkin like this? I took pictures of it on our way around town because I had never seen anything like this lumpy bumpy pumpkin before.
