Finally Summer!!

The sun has finally come and we have been enjoying some hot summer days! The hot hubby and I are heading to the lake for the next two weekends, so hopefully the heat wave continues. The only down side to the hot weather it the heat in house. My craft room is on the second floor of the house and by in the afternoon/ evening it is cooking. Rather than playing in there, I have been avoiding it. I think I may have to take over a corner of the man floor (aka the basement) until things cool off.

A couple weeks ago I went to a local LSS and scrapbooked with a friend of mine. Here are a few of the layouts I did in the comfort of the air conditioned store.

I just noticed that the bottom of this one got cut off. There should be a blue strip at the very bottom, oh well...

Have a gooder!!

Another Scrappin’ Weekend

I spent another weekend scrapbooking. This time Nadine made the long trek from Saskatchewan to spend the weekend in my craft room. I only managed to get 15 pages done, but we did make a few shopping trips and I had to cook a few meals (okay, only two, but still).

I haven’t scanned any of the pages I made last weekend, but here are a few that I made on the retreat.

This one is about the hot hubby's style, or lack there of, during the winter months.

Just a radom picture of the two of us from January.

I snapped this picture with my new Digital Rebel, while the hubby was trying to enjoy his breakfast.

3 nights, 4 days, 11 fabulous ladies & 34 pages....

A couple weekends ago I went on a scrapbooking retreat with some of my friends. I had an awesome time and manage to complete 34 pages while I was there. I finally finished 2005 and am almost up to date with this year. It is so nice to get away from the everyday distractions and focus on creating. I can't wait until the next retreat in September!

Here is one of my favourite pages from the weekend.

Busy, Busy, Sick, Busy...

The last month has been crazy!! I have been travelling quite a bit for work and then right smack in the middle of the craziest week, I got the flu. I haven’t had the flu since I was a little kid. Without going into the nasty details, I will just say losing 5 pounds in one day isn’t as exciting as it sounds ;)

On a happier note, I won a challenge on the Scrap n’ Supply Shack blog and received lots of American Craft goodies!! Here is a look at what Shannen sent me (Thanks Shannen!!)

I did manage to get a few layouts done over that last month. I am just about finished my 2005 album. I am so sick of scrapbooking “old” pictures so I think I am going to start my 2009 album before I start catching up on 2006.

Have a gooder!

What I’ve been up to…

I have been super busy that last week or so and have hardly had any time to scrapbook. I did however, do lots of crafting!! I hosted a very good friend of mine’s baby shower at my house on Sunday. It was lots of work, but definitely well worth it. Here are some pictures the decorations/favor/cards that I made for the party.

The welcome banner at the front door.
Large banner. Please ignore my empty shelves, it is a work in progress.
One of the Baby banners above the windows.
Another Baby banner over the fireplace.
The favor boxes were filled with Sour Soothers.
I made onesie thank-you cards as a gift for the Mommy to Be.
The comfiest chair for the Mommy to Be.
One of the games we played.
The Mommy to Be & Me. The matching shirts were a total fluke.
The planning committee & the Mommy to Be.

I wouldn’t have been able to get all done without my partner in crime/slave labor Michelle. Thanks again for all of the help!!

Now that the shower is over I should have lots of time to scrapbook, but first I have to clean my craft room, which after last weekend is a disaster zone!! Wish me luck…

Have a gooder!!

Catching Up

I am really looking forward to this weekend, I have two scrapbooking dates! Tonight I am going to a late night crop and on Sunday a couple girlfriends and I are getting together to scrapbook. I have a feeling it is going to be a great weekend!

Here are a couple more layouts that I did last fall, but never got around to posting. Hopefully after this weekend I will have lots of new pages to show!

Giving it Another Shot…

After a long hiatus I have finally decided to resurrect my blog and this time I am determined to keep it updated. The last couple of months I have really missed scrapbooking’s on-line community. I miss the message boards, the on-line galleries & the blogs. I really need some inspiration to kick start my creativity and I think that this is the best way to do it.

And, since a post with out pictures is boring here are some layouts that I did last fall that I never got around to posting.
