Back in the Saddle Again

Feels like it has been a while! I had an on and off again stomach bug last week, not fun. But, on the bright side I rested up quite a bit, and feel ready to take on September.

Something that I have to share!! While in Wal Mart I always check out the scrapbooking aisle. It is usually rather sparse, but there were some surprises this round! Tons of Halloween stuff for 97 cents. The cards come 8 in a pack with envelopes. It took some will power to not get all the different styles, but I think 24 Halloween cards should hold me over ;)

Summer Memories

I have a little mini posted over at the Scrapbook Sussies blog today! I wanted to show you a few pages of it...The cover and more pages are over HERE!

Here are the 3 of us on the first day of kindergarten! I just got a phone with a camera in it...Loving a new way to catch memories on the fly.

Good Good Life

I listen to Itunes radio allot when I am in the upstairs area of our house. I'll Just crank up those tiny computer speakers and rock out:) I love the OneRepublic song Good inspired the above layout.
Will be prepping for a baby shower this week, and my momma is coming into town! Like Dante says, "Nana is so much fun!"

Camping Mini Album

The entire album was cut with the Cricut, I think it was the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge. It has 3 different sheets- one with a plain edge, scallop edge, and a curved edge. I cut the book with  double sided patterned papers so I wouldn't have to cover the backs of pages. The holes were already cut with the Cricut, so it was quick to pull together. I took my scrap drawers out and just started trimming away.
The pictures are all 2x3, so this album is fairly small, but a great way to document a weekend trip.

Scallop Circles

I was looking at the past few things I have made, and they all had scallop circles in common!
Lately, scrapping has been in small tidbits and all over the place...I just felt like making some Halloween cards on Friday night, so that is what I did:)
Last week we started some potty training, and quit napping at the same time. That made for a really long week! School starts this Thursday, and I still can't believe I have a kindergartener starting. The tears are gonna be flowing. 
The potty trained princess will be going to preschool a couple days a week...mama is gonna have a little bit of playtime during the week;)
Also, make sure to check out Angi's new co-venture: LESSology! I can't wait to start playing along with some challenges this fall.

Seeing Stars

I love this one of Audrey on her birthday. She was so proud of her Dora doll, and those goggles. I tend to hang on to my precious favorite pictures till I am really ready to part with it, and commit to a layout.
I ordered a new cartridge last week- Flower Shoppe. All the spiral flowers sold me on it. Plus the Mother's Day flower cartridge from this past year is heavily used, figure this new one would be just as popular with me ;)
