A winter day.....
It is crazy outside... starting to look like a lot Christmas!! lol  I am nice and warm inside working on my class and some other things! So nice to not have to go outside.... This past week it was word up at OLW.... The word for this time around is 'grace'.... Have to admit I took a bit to get creative with this word....
The one thing that did come to mind though was my Gran..... she is a true definition of 'grace'.... She is gracious, she is graceful, she is one of the most amazing ladies in my life..... I have never ever heard her speak badly of another person, she always has the nicest things to say about others.... she is sweet and beautiful......and I love her to bits....
I am so grateful to have her in my life....
Next is the Shabby layout for this week......
I LOVE this photo of Shawn and Ella..... reminds me of days gone by.... Happy days, sweet memories..... Love the memories.... Love that we can scrapbook our photos and be reminded of those sweet days....
Hope everyone stays warm and safe..... See you all next week!!!

Ok Seriously???
September 8th was the last time I posted?? Id say that is a bit ridiculous..... K no excuses we will leave that one alone.... It has been busy though I will just say that. Hope things have been going good for everyone!

I haven't posted since before the Teresa Collins event in Vegas, which was fantastic as always! Can't wait till next year! We did some great projects and of course Las Vegas is always fabulous! So glad that is where the event is every year!
Did a photoshoot yesterday with my sister and her cute boys! Had lots of fun, it was chilly put perfect at the same time!

 This is one of my faves!!

Its Shabby Chic 7-9 this week.... we are almost half way through another album, so hard to believe! Kind of scary how fast the time is going!
Love Love Love this photo of Shar and Ella, this was a shoot that I did in September.... anyways like I said I have no excuses other than 'Life happens'
Enjoy your week everyone...
It is word up later on this week over at One Little Word so make sure you check it out....

Happy Sunday...
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.... the sun is shining today so its all good..... I am starting a new Shabby Chic class this week and wanted to share my layout:

Its really hard to believe that this is the seventh time I have taught this class, and I have to say that with each book I get more excited than the last! I am so excited to see all the familiar faces and of course all the new ones!  I LOVE looking back over the photos and remembering the moments..... This photo was from the lake and we had such a fun time it brings a smile to my face!

Last Sunday I did a photo shoot with Sharla and Ella and wanted to share some of my favorites:

Love capturing these sweet little moments between Shar and her little sweetie....

Enjoy the last few days of summer sun....
Until next time,

Here are a few highlights from this summer....

Its a new word at OLW!!
"Fierce" hmmmm ..... I have to admit I struggled a bit with this one, wasn't quite sure where to go with it.....
Fierce competition is what I ended up with!

Make sure you all go check out what the design team came up with and play along if you want!
Revlie picked the word this time around and her story on this word is so awesome! Hope you are all having a fabulous summer so far!

Hello my friends....
once again I feel like the time just flies by and before I know it I haven't blogged in a really long time! Makes me sad that I am struggling to keep up with it because I love it.... So here's to a new week and maybe I can try and keep up.... at least more than I have!
Today was our little munchkins birthday party..... it was so sweet to see how excited they were, both of them! Manda decided to do a joint birthday this year, not sure if she will do it again but it got it over with in one day so I thought it was a great idea! All the kidlets totally enjoyed themselves!

This past week it was word up over at OLW.... The word up this time around was Crazy.... Love that word!! Denise chose it this time around and that girl is just so darn cute and so extremely busy with life that it is the perfect word for her!!  There is so much I could have done with it, however I chose to Scrap a photo of kade because he such a crazy little dude! Full of energy and always on the go! The dude has been through a lot in his little life so even though sometimes he is a little monkey we probably wouldn't  want it any different, he has such a sweet loving little personality and we are so grateful to have him in our lives!
Make sure you go over to OLW and check it out!
When blogger is behaving I will try and upload some pictures from the birthday!!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Hello my friends....
Once again I have been neglectful.... so sorry! Life has been busy as usual and I also had the privilege of an amazing get away with a great friend and her daughter! We had a fabulous time visiting Hawaii! Yes it was fabulous, almost didn't wanna come home!
However in the meantime there has been much to do since coming back! CLasses, work and of course taking care of my life at home.....
Today was word up over at OLW and the word was 'surround'.....there is so much that we can surround ourselves with. Love this word! Come on over and join in!
Had a nice little visit with my gran on Sunday.... she is the sweetest lady ever.... Love her so much!
Hope you all have a fantastic rest of your week!!!

Holy Smokes!
 I do not know where the time goes but it is just gone.... just like that! I wish it would just stand still.... sometimes..... not always, sometimes I can hardly wait for what is to come, what is tomorrow, what will happen soon or a week from now.... but when I think of hw fast it goes it makes me sad :( I totally have to learn to embrace the moment, appreiciate the days and just enjoy life. I don't think like that and I so wish it did because it is such a treasure.... a sweet gift that we all get....

I haven't shared anything for awhile...

I feel like I have been in a funk.... just existing, doing what i do.... working, taking care of everyone, try to keep up with the crazy business of all know how it is i am sure but i am really trying to just be organized, be happy with where i am at.... just be.....

This is my layout for OLW this time around... I have to admit I wasn't too sure where to go with this but one of my kidlets gave me some flowers and I have to say that I really love that....  I love that they were thinking about it, they took the time to go and get them.... it makes me happy.....

I have been busy with classes,
This past weekend we had an event that Lori put on with the Scrapyard and Of course it was fabulous as always, it was so crazy busy though getting prepared for it with everything else that goes on in my household. It was so incredible though, we had so  much fun!
I will share some photos of that this week....
Here is a peek of the class that I will be teaching this week at the Scrapyard!

I am totally loving this class, so so fun!!!!
Enjoy your week everyone!!

Hello my friends....
and Happy Friday! Gotta love Fridays, they just make me Happy!
 I started my New "bootcamp" class this week and it was so fun! Had a great time, new ladies and some of my regular chicks and yep it was a blast! We are scrappin in an old encyclopedia.... its from the 1920's.... so amazing.... Love it!
This week was a new 'word up' at OLW so make sure you go and check that out! It was Gudruns turn and the word was Home.... Love that!
What does that word mean to you? I know for me it is is my happy place.... Love it when its quiet, love it when its busy.... Love morning coffee with the hubby.... Don't get me wrong there are times when I want to go go back to my other 'happy' place.... otherwise known as the Scrapyard just because it is so busy but I do LOVE being home.....
This is what I came up with for this time around...
I LOVE texture.... Love moulding paste, Love stencils, Love sprays.... it all just makes me so Happy! I have been cleaning my room since last night and yes it was a complete disaster but I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel! I have also been doing my album cover and I REALLY love it a lot! Can't wait till the class next week! Hope to see you all then!
