Look what I created using The Scrapping Spot's May kit!!!

This first one I used a Pagemaps sketch.


I used one of my sketches to create this one :)

Here's a card I used MM old papers for these next three cards.

I used a Pagemaps sketch for this.

I also used a Pagemaps sketch for this one.

We were lucky enough to spend the day outside on Saturday at Lake Wilhelm. It was glorious. We caught several fish and got a tad bit sunburned.

Here are some of my 2011 Resolutions - STATUS UPDATE

1. Weightloss (always #1 for me) - I have lost 15.8 pounds so far
2. Read thru the Bible - not doing so well
3. Read at least one book a month - I've only READ one book, but I've listened to 3-4
4. More Organized - working on this
5. Less wasted time - still working on this
6. Keep a clean and picked up home - neverending
7. My month in review layouts (12 total...obviously) - none completed
8. Make more cards - doing well on this
9. Blog more - doing fairly well on this
10. Insist that the kids keep their rooms clean and more organized - been slacking on this lately
11. Make my bed everyday - very well on this
12. Create at least 5 layouts a month - very well on this
13. Drink less pop...more water - excellent on this
14. File paperwork least - horrible on this
15. Less yelling at the kids - doing well on this
16. Family Game Nite Weekly or Bi-Weekly - we've had one or two of these
17. Date Nite - Monthly - we've done one of these
18. Can more this year - not time yet
19. Plant flowers this year - in the process
20. Spend more time outdoors - I have the sunburn to prove this
21. Entertain more often - I enjoy time with family/friends immensely - not so much
22. Spend less and SAVE more - it's the thought that counts...NOT!

Here's to doing a little better these next couple months.  :)

This post is pretty picture heavy, so bare with me ;)

Here is a layout I recently did for The Scrapping Spot's Layout Tag. I have to say that it is one of my favorite challenges ever. I had to lift Deanna Koontz's layout. I had so many directions I could have gone in. It was extremely fun.

I created this layout using an EXCLUSIVE sketch posted over at The Scrapping Spot.

Here is the most recent photo of my darling husband and myself taken on Mother's Day 2011.

Blake had to create a diorama using sea creatures as his theme. He created some interesting and crafty creatures using modeling clay. I was quite impressed. The kids also made the shirts that they wore that day.

How about these nifty treasure chest cupcakes?

Here's a cake that took more than an hour to make. Sadly, not much of it was actually eaten.

Check out my darling husband working on my bathroom that's been torn apart since January 19. He got quite a bit done considering all the problems he ran in to.

Thanks for stopping by!

My dear friend's birthday is this Thursday and I am late getting her a card :(  I made this one today based on a sketch at What's Scrapping? I also did this card for the May Scrap Your Crap at The Scrapping Spot.  I'm dying to dive into the new May kit from The Scrapping Spot, but until then I'll settle for getting a card done.

Another day and another great sketch for our birthday celebration over at Nuts About Sketches. Just a little reminder that you have until 5-15-11 at midnight, that's Saturday the 14th going into Sunday the 15th. I just wanted to clarify so there's no confusion. There's only one sketch remaining to conclude the celebration. Then, you better get to work so you don't miss out on the opportunity to win the awesome May kit from The Scrapping Spot.

This is my darling daughter a couple years ago on her preschool field trip.

Thanks for stopping by!
