New Christmas Present

I'm already using a Christmas gift that I got from my dad yesterday... a laptop. I'm so glad to finally have one. I'm ready to dive into the digital scrapbooking and I'm going to do it with the Creative Memories Memory Mananger and Story Book Creator programs. And I plan on doing it with the laptop. :) Thanks Daddy!!!

Speaking of Scrapbooking, it's getting closer to our Annual winter Scrapbook Retreat in January. I can't wait to go!!

My Goodness, it's been way to long

Wow, it's been 2 1/2 months since I've blogged. 

Lets see if I can catch up.  Since my last update, I went to an all day crop in August.  Did school clothes and supply shopping.  The weekend before school started we went on vacation for 3 days in San Antonio.  Ryan went to 4th grade and Saira to 1st grade.  They've already finished the 1st 6 weeks.  And both were on A-B Honor Roll as well as Perfect Attendance.  Ryan is nearly done with the football season, with this team 2 wins and 2 loses.  Playoffs are next weekend and the weekend after is the Superbowl.  I've been subbing again this school year.  And so far, so good. Over the summer I had lost about 15 lbs, I was super excited about that.  :)

This Saturday is Croptoberfest and the group of girls I crop and retreat with will be gathering for the all day event.  I'm so excited to get lots of layouts complete. 

Hopefully I can keep a good routine of updating my blog more often.  ;)

Thought I'd share my flower, button and catseye chalk storage. I use my empty PartyLite jars. These are the Just Dessert Jars. My tools go in a PartyLite Hurricane jar.

Weekend Retreat at Las Brisas Farms

What a fantastic time it was at Las Brisas Farms for the Scrapbook Retreat last weekend.  When I first arrived I swore I was going to die of heat exhaustion!!  But finally after setting all the a/c settings to meat locker settings, I finally cooled off.  And once I cooled off, I already looked forward to going back there....especially after we had dinner!  YUMMMM, that wonderful couple really nows how to create a meal.
Here are a few pictures that I had taken while I was there....

It Came, and it's Gone

Well, the school year is over. And Summer is now here! We are enjoying the lazy days of summer!!!

May came and gone, and now June is nearly over.

Yesterday I hosted a Creative Memories Get Together. Had a wonderful morning/afternoon with the girls. Now it's time to prepare for the Retreat next weekend. I'm so excited. I wish I could pack my stuff up right now and spend the week there. Wouldn't that be totally awesome!?!?!

Here is where we are going, to Las Brisas Farm.

And check it out!!! I'm a guest designer for July again for Scrapperie. Sandi was such a suprise this month when she asked me to be a guest aagin. I was ecstatic over it and about jumped out of my chair. I can't wait to get the kit this week. Isn't the July Kit, English Garden, just goregous!!!??!!!

Layouts from Celebrate Houston

Here are the pages that I made last Saturday during the horrible storm in Houston.  1,000 ladies gathered at the George R. Brown convention center to scrapbook from 9am-8pm.  I managed to get 8 pages done plus several 8x8's for our Thanksgiving in Alaska album.

So here's the 12x12's....
This is a favorite, it's pictures from the Mayhaw Pageant last year.
The rest of these are from Pre-K last year with Saira.

LOL, here's the LO's!!  The first one was made with the March kit from Scrapperie.
This second one was made with the Nov./Dec. kit from Scrapperie. 

How about some LO's!!!

I think it's about time that I post pics from the projects that I did with the March kit from Scrapperie.  ;)

But first, I have to tell you how crazy life has gotten.  I though the fall/winter was busy....with football, TaeKwonDo and working at the school.  NOPE, Spring is, with Ryan doing baseball, Saira doing softball, Ryan's TaeKwonDo, me working at the school and now Chad with a bummed up knee.  I swear, I don't know what a days rest means anymore!!!! 

But anyways, here are some pics.....  I had so much fun with this project....

I love how this album turned out!!  It's my most favorite thing ever now!!  :)
