I'm just going to post a layout for now. I'll update with pictures and more details about our weekend later :)

I was a busy little bee yesterday. I was able to create 6 layouts for the Scrap Your Stash challenges over at The Scrapping Spot. I used eyelets! Say it ain't so! Not only did I use eyelets, but I used over 60! I haven't used eyelets in years. It was kind of nice.

If you'd like a larger view of these, just double click on them.

Thanks to Lisa for this awesome "Valentine's Swap" over at The Scrapping Spot. I opened it up to find this really cute mailbox that she decorated with patterned paper, along with a coordinating card. It was filled with a mug, candle, chocolate/caramel covered pretzels (yum!), acrylic stamps (Basicgrey), rubons, Maya Road nake chipboard, stickers and bling! What a haul!

Ok. I've had enough snow already. I consider us lucky to have our electric. Also, we have a Bobcat, so Charlie can plow until his heart's content. He made a huge pile for the kids to play on. Nick decided to dig a tunnel, which we later deemed unsafe.
It's freezing here and doesn't look to be getting any warmer for over a week. I'm ready for Spring!

Take care! I'll be back soon to post anther layout.

Holy February! I can not believe how fast time goes. It stinks! The older I get the faster it goes. It's a good thing I take an unruly amount of photos, or I would forget what the kids look like from year to year.

We had our monthly Scrap Day at Charlene's church. I made buns for the awesome BBQ pulled pork sandwiches that Angelina made. And to top that off, Charlene made cheesey potaoes - MMMM! Alyssa and Vicki kicked it up another notch with to-die-for desserts. Alyssa made a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheeseball served on graham crackers. I'm not sure that's the official name, but that's what I call it. Vicki chipped in with a Peanut Butter Cookie Apple Pizza drizzled with caramel. WOW!!! Everything was beyond delicious!!!

My 36th birthday came and went. I made a Chocolate Earthquake Cake for myself that was oh-so-delicious! Charlie helped me eat it over the course of a week. It is definitely one of my most favorite desserts. Charlie bought me some pretty flowers, which Kaila loves to display. She doesn't even want to remove them for dinner. They're still pretty after 19 days. I honestly don't feel much different than I did when I was 18. I just have more responsibilities :)

The biggest and saddest news I have in my little world is that our laptop of 6 years completely crashed last Thursday. I knew it was going, but I had hoped for the best. Now, I'm having a hard time getting the internet to work on the our new computer with the Windows 7 operating system. I have to call Dell Tech Support to see if can indeed be saved. At least we have internet.

The happiest news for me, because I'm so very easy to please is my new peel and stick tile floor. It is a temporary floor until we re-do the entire kitchen. I just couldn't stand the other floor any longer. My husband loves me, so he took to task and completed it this past Saturday. I love the outcome. Kaila was right in there working like a champ.

Here are a couple of the two pagers I did at our Scrap Day last month. For those of you who attend, our next one is February 27th. Feel free to email me if you can make it.

I did the Lightning Bug Quest for a Scrap Your Stash at The Scrapping Spot. Their February Kits are up as well, so get over there before they're gone! They are GORGEOUS!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
