So Long, Farewell

So summer is offically here! YAY! That also means the kiddos are out of school (as of yesterday) and we are leaving on vacation tomorrow. So that being said I just wanted to touch base one final time before heading off to a world without computer/or internet for a week. What a change that will be. And even though I will miss it and be very anxious to get back to it, blog hopping and keeping in touch, I'm going to welcome it and embrace it. Speaking of blog hopping I have a little fun to share. My last post was about the Father's Day Blog Hop at The Paper Passion, it was so much fun. So many talented ladies sharing what they do, awesome. Along the way there were a few prizes to be had and guess what? That's right I won one, you can see what wonderful scrappy goodies I won by hopping over to Hayleys' blog here. Thanks Hayley, can't wait to get it. :)

So before I sign off for a whole week I'll share the last two layouts I was able to squeeze in last weekend. I did both of these layouts using a fabulous kit that I got from CMK last year. I challenged myself to only use the contents of the kit and here is what I came up with, I'm quite please with them both. Plus you will never believe how much product I have left, I suspect I could easily produce 10 more layouts if I really tried and half of them you would even know I used the same kit! That rocks! If you are looking for an unbelievable kit club you should check it out here.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate the feedback! :) Happy vacation to me....until next time! ;)

The Paper Passion Blog Hop- A Father's Day Tribute!

Welcome to The Paper Passion Blog Hop! (A Father's Day Tribute)

What is it all about you ask? Well if you don't already know members of The Paper Passion forum have volunteered to make a post on their blog today in celebration of Father's Day, either by making and posting a card or layout. Each members blog has a link to the next member so if you complete the entire list and get to the end (which you have 3 days to do) you will be entered into a prize drawing! How fun! Rosa (the owner of The Paper Passion )is the best!

So without further a do... my tribute is to both my husband and my father. If you follow my blog you have likely seen this before. I did this as a class as a gift for Father's Day.

My dad is the talented guy that made these wood plaques for me so I made up a different design for him.
The next blog in the hop is Dawn's Blog: HERE

It's a Wrap!

Yup the long awaited dance recital weekend if finally over. Lots of running, very busy, yet very exciting! It is what every performer/dancer lives for! Bittersweet really. The boys did a great job and I am very proud of them! Here are a few quick pictures of the boys in their costumes.Dress rehearsal, waiting back stage with all his breakdancer buddies.Playing gameboy to pass the time....All ready to go, break a leg!My ham, he's such a little actor!First show "Broadway Babes, Junior Show" Elliott in Musical Theatre "Annie in Never Fully Dress".Braydn breakdancing to "Closer". Elliott's Bubblegum Flower, absolutely perfect for a boy!Second show "On Broadway, Senior Show". Braydn, Musical Theatre "Hairspray, Nicest Kids in Town".
Braydn in Musical Theatre, Spelling Bee.
Braydn however, did request a flower and it had to be pink! Pink is "in" for boys you know! :) So I played around with the feature on my new camera that only picks up one colour. It is very cool. I will be playing around with this feature alot more!

I couldn't be more proud of them, they really did a great job, all their hard work paid off! Congratulations boys!
So one more week of dance, just a fun class this week and only 9 more days of school! Hard to believe. I have several things on the go right now that I have to get a jump on, now that all the dancing is done. I have a class to get ready for, my father's day project to complete and teacher gifts to make. So hopefully my next post will have some scrappy stuff in it! Happy Monday ALL!

Quick Post Today, Just Wanted to Share...

The last layout I did. I have been pretty dry lately. I think it must be the sunshine. Just feel like being out doors more then in! Thanks for looking. Happy Tuesday Everyone!

13 Years Ago Today...

I got this handsome guy right here...

I don't want to get all mushy, but I did want to say how much I truly love his man and I'm thankful for having him in my life each and every day. He provides for his family and works very hard for us, to have the things we need and those that we want. He is loving, caring, smart and funny. I love to laugh with him! It has not been without some trials, we have had many hurdles but at the end of the day I wouldn't want it any other way! He has shown me so many things and I know there is still so much more we will grow and do together. Here is to many more years! Love ya!
