I received my kits from The Scrapping Spot and I have to tell you...they do NOT disappoint. I'm so glad I got both of them, because some of the elements ar interchangeable! I love that!

Ari and I are hosting a March Sketch Challenge with 15 sketches complete with examples at The Scrapping Spot. There are prizes involved. If you love sketches, zip on over there and sign-up TODAY!

Here's what I've created so far with the Basicgrey Two Scoops.

Thanks for taking a quick peek!

I know...another post...finally! I generally don't post, unless I have a picture or something to share.

Since my last post, we spent the weekend at camp, muddled through President's Day and got our taxes done.

Camp - we froze the first night. For some reason we couldn't get the camp warmed up. I was in all my clothes, a sweatshirt, socks AND slippers. I slept like that and my toes were still icy. I made sure the kids were all bundled up. All I know is next time we go to camp in the winter, I MUST bring more blankets. The ones AT camp were frozen! We basically used the ones we brought. On Saturday morning, after a lovely next-to-sleepless night, Blake kept saying, "Dad!" He had to have said it 15 times. It wasn't until he added, "deer!" that Charlie hopped off of the floor (our "bed" for the night) and zipped to the big window. Apparently, there were 6 deer right below camp. It's always exciting to see wildlife. We had good food and played lots of games. It was nice. The kids can't wait to go back...hopefully in warmer weather.

President's Day - the boys had to make up a snow day, so they weren't thrilled, but that's life. I took Kaila and went to Charlene's to workout and pretty much didn't get anything else done the rest of the day. I went to volleyball that night and got a little more exercise.

Tuesday - I worked on getting our tax stuff ready allllll day. The good news is that I completed that particular task and we were able to get our taxes done without incident. In fact, this photo in the layout is from Tuesday, right before we left :) We were both excited to have a "date" night. We went to Red Lobster after we were finished with out taxes. It was sooooo good.

Anyway, here's the layout I did today using what little bits I have left from The Scrapping Spot's February Kit.

Thanks for stopping by!

It's another day...another "snow day." Sigh. Well, at least I don't have to get ready right away and I did sleep in a tad. The kids are actually behaving themselves, so what am I doing? Scrapping - just one page though. I'm almost caught up on my Layout a Day at The Scrapping Spot.

LAD #11 - I used another one of my sketches for this one - Sketch #39 -

LAD #12 - She's got moves!
Now, I'm off to actually
do housework, baking, etc.

A couple of layouts to share...

I'm currently participating in several challenges at The Scrapping Spot, so these fit into a couple of them.

LAD Day 4: I used my sketch #21, along with TSS February Scenic Route Kit.

LAD Day 5: I scraplifted Ange's "Holiday Fun" for Spot Tag the Third at TSS. Thanks, Ange!

Not sure if I'll actually get to do another layout today, because my TO-DO list is FULL! I can always hope though.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just a short update with pictures of my darling daughter. The only reason I'm even posting is to marvel at how fast kids grow. I know I say it constantly, but it's true and it totally amazes me!

Check out my 4 year old.

Thanks for stopping by!

Semi-Lazy Day...just chillin' - mostly. I forgot to post my other layout yesterday, so it's gettin' posted today. I used another Pagemaps sketch, along with my February Kit from The Scrapping Spot. Also, the stamps are some new Basicgrey stamps. Soooo pretty! They match the new "Two Scoops" line of papers. Had to have them!

The weather is supposed to warm up a bit, which is good. I don't like all of this ice.

Anyway, back to chillin'!

Thanks for stopping by!

Quick Update --- I created a couple of layouts with sketches that I created as my starting point. I also used The Scrapping Spot's awesome February Senic Route Kit to help in my quest.
Oh, and speaking of The Scrapping Spot...they're searching for a new Design Team. If you're interested, go to the Message Board under Announcements for further details.

Thanks for taking a peek! Now, I'm off to prepare some pizza for my guests this evening and hopefully clean a little so that they might get into the house.
See ya!

February Pagemaps - check them out at I was asked to do one of the roundmaps for Becky Fleck. I used The Scrapping Spot's January kit to help me out.
Yeah, Blake doesn't look so happy here, but he was minus a snowball to his face by non-other-than...Nick! He got wiped off and was running around sledding again.

Thanks for taking a peek!
