Gettin My Crafty On!

Whew! I have been so busy getting ready for our annual ScrapPink event that I haven't had much time to scrap! Luckily, there was a crop at the store yesterday so I had an excuse to just sit and relax with some great ladies.

Here are a few of the layouts I got done. I have been dying to rip into all the new goodies we got in at Scraptacular this week. Not one, but SEVEN boxes of new stuff from MLS, Fancy Pants, Maya Road and GCD Studios. It's taking me f-o-r-e-v-e-r to upload all of it to the website and all I really wanna do is play with it!!! So I did!

This is one I did about little me! All the way back in 1982! I fringed the green pp to make it look like grass...

This paper isn't necessarily winter-y but the colors were perfect for some ice skating shots!

I made this one using the Fancy Pants Dancing Girl line! I love this line because it's so hard to find good purple paper and this line's got some.
Well, I guess it's back to uploading images to the website for me! Have a scrappy week!

Happy Sunday!

I just love Sundays! The weekends here lately have been crazy busy but today I get to just relax for the most part. We've got the twins b-day party later today but I should be able to find time to scrap.

Speaking of scrapping:

I was vendoring yesterday but had some time to work on some layouts. I am really happy with the way they turned out. The top one is of the "photo shoot" Bridgette and I had last weekend. To see more pics from that go to Scraptacular Scrapbok Store Blog.
The bottom layout is of Bridgette and her daddy when she was just a wee one. That seems like yesterady but was really 7 years ago!
Thanks for stopping by!

Some More Back to School!

I LOVE the Scraptacular Teacher's Pet kit! I just keep making more layout's using it:

I'm having so much fun playing! It even inspired me to pull out some photos from last year that I've been putting off scrapping.

Hopping Along...

I am participating in a Blog Hop again this weekend on Willow Traders! Thanks for stopping over!

I just wanna say that I absolutely LOVE how this layout turned out! It was one of those that started without a real plan, I just knew I wanted to use this pic with this paper. I was so excited when this Pink Paislee stuff came in, I just HAD to use it!

The picture is of my little cutie eating sushi. That is by far her favorite treat! We tried a new restaurant when we went to Rehoboth, DE for vacay this year called the Cutlured Pearl. It was gorgeous and according to Bridgette they had the best sushi ever.

In other big news today...Scraptacular announced their new Design Team!!! It was a super hard choice for me because we got so many wonderful apps but I promised a decision by today and I stuck to it. Check out the Scraptacular blog to see who made it!

Still Scrappin' the Beach

Another weekend at the Hideaway! I had so much fun as usual but I didn't really get a whole lot done. I did accomplish something with seven layouts complete and a started mini album. I can'r share everything I did because some were for Scraptacular's September kit but here are a few I did manage to finish and can share:

I think this was my fave from the weekend:

But i also really liked this one:
Thanks for looking! Be sure to check out the Scraptacular blog tomorrow for some sneak's of September's kit!

Gettin' Scrappy!

I had the pleasure of scrapping last night with a great group of ladies at Scraptacular! I had a blast. After being sick for the last week (ok, I guess I still sort of am since I have no voice!) it was nice to have some girly time. AND, I got to work on some layouts which is always nice:

I am STILL not done with beach pics:

I was so happy to scrap this pic for several reasons. (1) I love all of the new baby stuff that is out there but I never get to use it because, alas, no babies in my house and (2) it is like one of the best pics of me ever taken. Plus the little girl is sooo cute too!

I am participating in the Blog Hop over at Willow Traders this weekend! Never done one before but I am getting some awesome inspo from some talented ladies!!! Here's the link if you want to join in:!

Giveaway on Scraptacular's Blog!!!

Stop over at Scraptacular's blog to enter to win a prize! All you have to do is leave a comment to our Summer post about your summer layouts and you will be entered to win.

Our summer is starting to wrap up here. Bridgette is away at her Nan's house for most of next week so that will make the summer seem even shorter. I am not sure what I'm gonna do with myself without her but I hope to get a lot of scrapping done!

Never A Dull Moment...

I washed Bridgette's sheets on Friday and then when I tried to put clean ones on, this is what happened:

He just laid there! Absolutely refused to get up. I am not sure how that could be comfortable but apparently he thought so!

I am super excited about our upcoming ScrapPink event! This is the third year we have particpated and I really think we're going to outdo ourselves this year. The event will be held on Saturday, September 26th at Reformation Lutheran Church in Exeter from 9am-9pm. The donations for raffles and goody bags just keep rolling in. This week I received goody bag stuff from Pink Paislee, American Crafts and Three Bugs... and that's just this week!

This cause is really close to my heart because my grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer 7 years ago. She ended up getting a double mastectomy as well as some lymph nodes removed. She fought a tough battle for the last 7 years but finally succumbed to cancer earlier this year. I would really like to make this year a sell out so I will have lots of money to present to the Susan G Komen Foundation!

The great news is do far it has been a huge success. I made the announcement about 2 weeks ago and we only have 13 spots left! That is so awesome and very much beyond my expectations.

I have been busy creating as well! After printing out like 50 pictures from our vacation I have begun the task of scrapping them:

(This one is actually from July 4th!)

Have a great week! I'll be back soon with some pics of Bridgette's birthday party!

Back From the Beach...

***Warning! Picture Overload!****

We just got back from the beach this weekend and we really had a great time! It was so nice to get away just the three of us and enjoy our fave vacation spot, Dewey Beach, DE. I know I went crazy with the pics, but believe me, these are just the highlights:

Kite flying is a tradition with us. Every year we bring the kite and go out onto the beach to ride the wind! This year was a little overcast but still fun.

Playing with the camera:

Ice Cream Castle, the best ice cream in OC!

Our sundae was huge!!

Butterfly chairs in front of the Kite Loft:

MMM...the Cultured Pearl! We had fantastic sushi and pasta...I highly reccommend it! Rehoboth, DE:

Love the atmosphere!

This plate of sushi was gone in 10 seconds flat! I have never seen her eat so fast!

The Haunted House wasn't open but we did get to ride the carousel!


We finally found sunglasses she liked! My little twin.

What a fabulous vacation although too short! We did really miss the comforts of home and our silly doggy but we can't wait to go back again next year.
