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!
