Happy Birthday Baby Boy!

So I am finally used to the little man going to school and now he goes and turns 5! For some reason I have a tough time with the odd numbered has nothing to do with the fact that my baby is no longer a baby! It is amazing how much they change in 5 years - here is a pic of the cute little guy the day he was born and his school pic taken a few weeks ago

Almost makes me want another one - ALMOST! Anyways, Happy Birthday Luke!

So onto the pages I promised last week,

I like them much better than the last 2 pages. Some more summer fun from 2009! The second page still could use a title, but I am at a loss for one. I LOVED the paper on the second page too. Almost enough that I didn't want to cut into it. The hearts and striped were a 2 sided-paper. Lucky for me I had 2 sheets of it and I only had to use 5 inches:) Now I am sure the rest of it will become a collectors item in my stash of scrappy things. Those ladies at the Scrap-Room sure do know how to pick some fabulous papers in their monthly kits!!

Have a great day -

As promised, pages and a new pet!

So I did promise a few scrappy things...I am posting the first 2 pages I made after a long summer hiatus of merely collecting scrapping supplies. They are definately not the most amazing pages ever that is for sure. It seems to take me awhile to get back into the swing of things after not scrapping for awhile. But I need to remind myself that a good page is a done page. Also I think I better remind myself - no more 4 month breaks (if you look really close these are summer pages, too bad it is summer of 2009!). I've got a couple more pages that I like better and will hopefully post tomorrow.

Looking back on things now, I should have made them into a 2 page layout, but that thought didn't cross my mind until AFTER the pages were done. Also one of my new favorite supplies (it's really hard to see on the pic) is printed, tape. I used it on the page on the right, below the reddish paper is some really cool blue heart tape. Oh what fun!

Onto the new pet - if you know me, you may be wondering what in the world this crazy lady needs another pet for (4 children, 5 if you count Kraig, 2 dogs, a home daycare) but Grace really thought she needed a rabbit. I was not real keen on the idea of a rabbit. I had one growing up and it wasn't the most social animal ever. I also forgot to feed it for a couple of days one winter and it was frozen solid the next time I went out to check on it. So after some careful deliberation meet....

Brauny the Guinea Pig (named after Ryan Braun). He is a pretty cute little guy. Grace and Luke are sharing the honor of being his 'owner'. Although Luke is terrified to hold him. He looks pretty ferocious, huh? The good news is he is quiet, doesn't smell and won't freeze outside this winter. He was an early birthday present for the both of them.

Anyways, hope you like the pages and the cute guinea pig. Have a great evening - Enjoy!

I'm back!

Hello all - no, I didn't abandon the world of blogging. I just got a bit lost in a busy, somewhat stressful summer. It was a great summer, don't get me wrong. Just a bit stressful with some things that are completely out of our control. I am trying to be patient with these things I have no control over...but its just not in my personality type!! Anyways, I am here now and even have found some time to scrap lately - YEAH!! I will hopefully get a page up here tomorrow.

I do have a few pictures to share with you all - my kiddos started school a few weeks ago. All 4 of was having a really tough time sending my baby off to school. Thank god he only goes for half the day. But as I went to take him that very first day it was really hard to be too upset. He cheered as I pulled into the parking lot and I could barely keep up with the little man as he RAN, yes, RAN to get to his classroom. He was quite disappointed that he didn't get to ride the bus to school that day. But at least he let me walk him to his room and then I had to beg for a hug before I left. It does make me happy that all 4 of them love school as much as they do. And with all of them gone, gives me some time to clean house (ha, ha) and scrapbook! Here's a couple pics of them all on the first day


Hope you are all enjoying the drastic change in the weather...only in Wisconsin do we go from the air conditioning on Monday to the heat on Wednesday! Have a great day and check back soon I promise to have some scrappy things to share. Enjoy -
