I've been scrap happy

So over the past few weeks I have been working feverishly on layouts with some new product from CHA! With new product in my hands I'm like a kid in a candy store. I get so excited I don't know what to do with myself.

"School Is cool"**Layout**
In this back to school layout I did of my son Josh I used Cosmo Cricket "The Boyfriend ". This is such a great line of paper. What would we do without Cosmo Cricket! Here are the papers I used : THE BOYFRIEND, STUDY HALL, TUBE SOCKS, HOMEWORK, & THE BOYFRIEND ELEMENTS.

"My Heart Belongs 2 Them" **Layout**

Well,once again My Mind's Eye put a fabulous set of paper out. Don't you LOVE ,LOVE this "Ooh La La For Him Paper Line".The colors are so versatile it makes it that much sweeter to buy!

"A Girl can Dream"**layout**

A few weeks ago I blogged about this photo. Not knowing the paper from My Minds Eye would work out perfect for it! It just shows you they know their stuff. OK, well maybe it just happened to work out in my favor hehe. Anyways the line is "Abbey Road" Lucky Me Hello World. Such a sweet girly girl paper line.

Check it out!!!!


Halloween is around the corner...

so I've been working on a few things today with one of my favorite Halloween lines " Little Yellow Bicycle". The paper & embellishments are cute which makes it FUN to work with.

Hope you enjoy!

What a weekend I had!

Happy Birthday Sweet Memories Scrapbooks. After a year of crops, parties, scrap yard sales, CHA, meeting new people and making new friends it was time to celebrate a year to remember. So WE DID just that! What better way to celebrate it WILD & crazy!
It was so nice to meet new people, see the everyday customer & hang with great friends I have made along the way at Sweet Memories. To be in a room with so many people who share the same passion for scrapbooking is awesome! Everyone had a great time & walked away filling full of scrap happiness.
The best part for me was finally meeting Gretchen. The classes she taught were so much FUN and adorable! She is a sweet & down to earth young woman with a kind heart. I felt like I already knew her (well i did stalk her blog just about everyday hehe). It was awesome to meet her & the wonderful group of ladies that came with her! Each and everyone of them has amazing talent and I enjoyed seating near them. I just hope I didn't scare them away with the singing, laughing & craziness at our table lol.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I know I sure did!!!!!


A Girl Can DREAM!

A bit of a Glamour Girl is how I see it. The girl LOVES her fashion already. Not sure where she gets it from, cause I'm more of a t-shirt kind of gal. No matter where I'm going you'll most likely find me wearing a t-shirt & a pair of jeans. Somewhere in Alexis' 2 years of life, my little girl found a true passion for FASHION! If you were to ask her what is she, straight up she would say, I'm a DIVA and a PRINCESS.

So today we headed to the Arbor Place Mall. What was to be a quick trip to the mall became a shopping spree. All I wanted to do was hit a sell at Old Navy. Somehow, along the way we needed up in the jewelery store. What can I say, the girl has great taste in fashion!!!! Alexis picked out a few great pieces of jewelery that I LOVE! I can't wait to wear them this weekend.
Hope you all had a great weekend!!!!


"Forever In Love"

Just wanted to share a loving layout i did of my parents. I had a few wedding pictures that my mom gave me sometime ago just sitting around. So I decided to have them restored then made this lovely layout.


First Day of School!

Joshua first day of school was a success. He got up this morning before I did. As soon as his feet hit the floor, he was off. The kid didn't stop talking about his BIG day ahead of him! He was so excited to get to school he couldn't even eat breakfast. If I could get up every morning excited about the day ahead of me it would be a blessing. I'm just NOT a morning person!
At 7:20am We headed out the door an off to school. I decided to walk Joshua to his class so he would know his way around. I should have known I was not needed. He jumped out of the car, walked to the double doors and down the hall he went. He never looked back to make sure I was right there behind him. At that moment I knew he was ready!!! My little boy was growing up. When I walked into the classroom there he was already sitting at his seat reading the book the teacher placed in front of him. I stood there not knowing what to do. So the scrapbooker that I am, I snapped a few pictures and was out the door.When it was time to pick him up I headed to the school. YES I sat in the pick up line for 45 minutes. No one ever told me It would be a mad house in the pickup line lol. When I finally picked him up, the poor kid was so tired he couldn't keep his head up. Needless to say tonight will be an early night! :)


The "DAY" has finally come!

Well the day has finally come. Tomorrow my little man will start the 1st day of a long road ahead of him. For the the next 13 years he will get up, get ready for school and set a foundation for his life. OK I know he's just going into kindergarten, but before I know I'll be watching him walk down the aisle and receive his high school diploma. Just let me have my moment please lol! What can I say he's my first born. A little part of me is sad watching him grow up way to fast. All day the only thing I have been thinking about is the day we brought him home from the hospital. My husband & I sat there holding him an talked about what he will look like at the age of 5. In that moment it never hit me I would be sending him out into a BIG world like kindergarten all alone to wonder the big halls of Carrollton elementary . I don't know who will have a harder time tomorrow, ME or his daddy. What I do know is Joshua is ready to step out of this little shell his mommy has provided him with. I can only hope he makes wise decisions and be there to guide him along the way!


I'm BACK from CHA!!!

Wow I know I'm behind on the blog thing. After going home to Florida for a week I'm finally blogging. I had a wonderful time at CHA and got to see my parent at the same time. It was also nice to have a little ME time(thanks to my wonderful parents) and get the chance to fondle all the awesome NEW products coming out this summer. A lot of people think CHA is all play but it comes with some work. There was no better way to start our day off with you know it COFFEE! The best part, it came from STARBUCKS! Oh, how I miss this place. Here in Carrollton, GA there is no sight of one near :( Holding this cup near me was like music to my hears.
At CHA there was some awesome projects displayed with the NEW product that will be hitting the stores really soon. Here are just a few that made my heart smile. Check out this Halloween hunted house made with Pink Paislee Twilight.
What about this PRIMA? Take a look at a few samples I loved in their booth. These designers do beautiful work.

I'm in love with these butterflies on this layout.Can you say HELLO BABY! I'll take one of everything from this booth please. And I think our lovely store owner from SWEET MEMORIES SCRAPBOOKS did exactly that! lol.


Well I have to say one of my favorite moments this past week was finally meeting & talking to Jenni Bowlin. She is such a down to earth woman, and easy to talk to. She works her booth, makes her layouts, design it all. I have to say I finally found someone that inspires me in a whole new way.
