Here's another quick update. I have to get ready for volleyball. This may be our last night. It's double elimination, but I don't have high hopes. As long as I get some exercise...I'll be happy.

First of all, the photos on this layout were taken by my awesome friend, Angelina Schwarz last year in March. She did a beautiful job "patching" Kaila's scrapes and bruises on her face. I know I'm scrapping the crap out of these photos, but I just LOVE them!

I did a layout over at The Scrapping Spot for Leah's Mixed Up Scraplift challenge. I had to scraplift a layout from Roxanne with an added twist to add some paint. Here is what I came up with. I used some paint AND a flourish stamp, one of the big foam ones. Click on the photo for a better look. Oh, and by the way, if you haven't purchsed some sort of Stickles or other comparable glitter puff paint, you need to do so and quickly! I love this stuff!

I promise a better/bigger update later. I do have to post pics of Easter and Kaila's first professional haircut ya know!

Thanks for stopping by!

Just an update with some layouts. These are all Becky Fleck sketches from PageMaps. AND yes, I know that there is a typo in the "Hunt" layout. I'll fix it later. Thanks for peeking!

Spammers beware! I can not believe that some idiots don't have anything better to do than leave comments on my blog that say "see here" or "warning see here." Get a life already. I've since fixed the problem. It will be harder for them to leave a comment now. Morons!

As for the rest of you, I would LOVE to hear what you have to say. Wink! Wink!

I have some layout updates. The first two are layouts that I did last Friday using two of Cherie Averil's sketches at If you're in a creative slump, go take a gander at some of her sketches. Some of them have examples too.

Ready for Trouble was created for a color challenge at The Scrapping Spot last week.

Kaila's Model Behavior was completed with Cathy's "Sisters" layout as inspiration from The Scrapping Spot.

We just returned from an awesome Easter Egg Hunt over at Wayside Emmanuel Church in New Castle. The kids had a blast and are currently on the ceiling from their sugar high ;) I'll have picture soon as proof of their jubiliation.

Thanks for popping in.

I'm goin' to a crop today!!! Yeah! This will be the last one for a while, so I'll definitely enjoy it. Although, as I mentioned before, I'll be battling some bad weather/roads. Oh, well. I told DH I'm taking the truck ;)

We're having an online crop over at The Scrapping Spot starting at 10:00 a.m. EST today. I hope to print off some of their challenges before I leave tonight.

I completed a layout for Cherie Averill for her blog. Click on her name for some other awesome sketches. Obviously,the boys' pictures are school photos taken by Lifetouch. However, Kaila's is one that I took and used one of Angelina Schwarz's photoshop actions to make it pop. Her school picture was absolutely horrible. And I'm totally disgusted with the fact that Clark Studios, out of New Castle, didn't do a better job making sure that she looked "right" before I paid so much for crap. I will not give one single one of them away...that's how bad they are. Yuck! I mean, seriously, how can a 4 year old take such a horrible photo? Disgusted, I tell ya!

The kids and I are attending an egg hunt this weekend. This will be our third year at Wayside Church. They always have crafts, stories and games for the kids. It's really a good time and the kid love it! I'm hoping the weather isn't too terribly bad.

I have to get Kaila ready for school and prepare myself for anothr workout at Charlene's.

Thanks for stopping by.

Don't forget to set your clocks ahead this weekend. You heard me right! THIS weekend! I was surprised too. Along with surprise comes dismay...I like me some sleep! I suppose it has to be done. I'm hoping Spring catches a clue and gets here early. I know...wishful thinking.

Some layout updates for you.

I used my sketch #26 to create "frog follies" along with the Two Scoops kit from The Scrapping Spot.

"How lucky am I?" was thrown together without a sketch, but with the awesome Lucky kit from The Scrapping Spot. The photo was taken by non-other-than my very own BLAKE. Lovely, eh?
I'm not looking forward to this nasty "snow" stuff we're getting this weekend. I'll be attending another crop at Scrapbook Station and I'll be driving in this. I do have an extra spot if someone wants to brave the weather to accompany me ;)
Have a great weekend, Everyone! And thanks so much for stopping by!
