Is that Fall I see?

WOW I can finally say, I see Fall!  The best part of this picture is it's a view from our back door. Now this is a picture I enjoy waking up to every morning. It is an explosion of color everywhere. What was once a green forest like area is now a color pallet for Fall .

"The woods are full of fairies;
the sea is full of fish;
the trees are full of golden leaves;
let's make an autumn wish."

 It's going to be a great weekend for fall color throughout GA. I'm thinking a Sunday drive is calling my name.
Hope you ALL enjoy your weekend. I know I will.

Joshua the "ROCK STAR"

Wednesday was Joshua's big day view as a star lol. Well, OK not really but he got to act like one for a day. This week is spirit week at school and it was come to school as a ROCK STAR. So he did just that. If you know me I always say, Go BIG or Go HOME!!! We pulled out all the stops on this one. So what kind of rock star did he go as, we PUNKed it out all the way an had a blast doing it!

What can I say, The KIDS a Rock Star hehe!!!


Family time is the best time!

I love the weekends don't you? For our family it's always that time of the week we can all come together as one. If were sitting at home, going to the park, out on an adventure or just our morning breakfast stop at Waffle House it's always a treat to be together.

This past weekend we took a little trip to Stone Mountain Park. The kids had a blast.This was the first time any of them had been and it was so exciting to them. Its times like this that make me very thankful to have a loving family that I can spend time with.



Once again Sweet Memories Scrapbooks held a fabulous crop. Croptoberfest was a success! With a plan, I went into the crop with lots to do. I finish a baby album for a customer and even worked on a few layouts of my own. Everyone had such a great time, and some even squeezed in a class taught by one of Sweet Memories Scrapbooks design team Jennifer.

She taught a spooky class using My Little Yellow Bicycle's Halloween line.The Haunted Halloween House mini album turned out to be a big hit.

So while I was at the crop I got a few layouts done for myself using Cosmo Cricket - Early Bird. This paper line is so cute and the chipboard embellishments will make u smile. Of course picking the right picture to use with this paper line was a piece of cake or should I say cookie hehe.

 Once I saw the paper and the "Hey there cookie" I knew I had the perfect picture of Alexis eating her favorite cookie.
The second layout I worked on this weekend was a picture of my husband & I. It's been sitting in my bag waiting to be scrapped."We go together like Salt & Pepper"!

What a great saying right lol. There's no other saying to describe Jay & I. So to work I went with this paper & cute/crazy saying. When it was all said and done, the adhesive was on, the paper was down the layout turned out really cute.

Hope you all have a great day, and stay SCRAP HAPPY!!!!

"My weekend"

You would think it's winter outside. We have lived here almost 3 years and this is the first time fall has come and gone so fast. We had to pull out all the winter gear just to step outside this weekend hehe. Other then the very cold weather I had a great weekend. It ended up being a very productive weekend. I scrap Friday & Saturday night, and made it to the Recipe club on Sunday at
 Sweet Memories Scrapbooks, Then off to the fair.

Here is a layout I did with new & beautiful fall collection-Indian summer. This paper is so lovely. I wanted to use the paper in some other way then in a fall layout using fall pictures. I just love this picture of my husband & Alexis. It shows how much Alexis loves her daddy. With a title like this, "The first man a girl Falls In Love with is her dad" it turned out to be a nice fall like layout.

Hope you all had a great week!
Keep on scrappin!!!


"Scrap Worthy moments"

"We r Memory Keepers with a touch of PRIMA & My Little Shoe Box"

Want to see what goes on in the Hansen household? A lot of craziness,happiness and fun loving moments. There is never a dull moment in this house. One minute it's so pieceful then the next everyone is running around. These moments are truly scrap worthy.


"The perfect teacher gift"

Joshua's teacher has a birthday tomorrow and getting just any present is so not me. So I wanted to do something FUN and of course creative. Something that Joshua could be a part of as well. So this adorable candy bouquet is the perfect gift for her. What makes it even more special it was made with Joshua's help. Just a sweet gift for a sweet teacher!

"Happy Children"

So, I was thinking the other day how nice it is to have friends here in GA. After moving up here almost 3 years ago the thought of not knowing anyone was very scray. Having 2 young children and not know anyone or even the area made me a little homesick.

After being here for a few days we met the neighbor. Ever since then we all have been friends and our children love to play with each other. It's so awesome to see my children enjoying LIFE to the fullest.
