I was Featured!

Good morning everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. What an awesome jam-packed weekend I had. On Saturdays I usually take Jenny to swimming lessons, and this Saturday Kaiden started lessons as well. I THOUGHT he would be fine, since he is always asking to ""swim with sissie." So he gets there, and goes in just fine, then as he gets into the pool...the screaming started, and continued for the entire lesson! Lol, what an experience for those other kids. I think he will need a few more of those crying sessions before he will be fine. After swimming I headed over to Paper Niche to work on some wedding invites for my cousin, and Wendy Vecchi was teaching classes. I had the opportunity to take an amazing class with her Friday night, and now I am officially hooked on all things inky :). Anyways, getting to point of this post, I was on Facebook scrolling through my newsfeed, and recognized a picture, and realized it was a layout of mine! Trinity Paper Arts featured a layout I had posted to their wall, on their blog!! I couldn't be more ecstatic about my first time being featured!  You can read the post here, and leave a comment too ;). Here is a peek of my layout. Oh I almost forgot, after church on Sunday I spent the entire afternoon at a car dealership, and came home with a brand new car!!! So totally over the moon about it, this was our first new car purchase :). Well I hope you have a great week. I will be back soon, to post pics from my amazing class with Wendy!

Happy Monday!!  Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was very full, but lots of fun. I decided to play in my scrap room this morning before i attacked my to do list. I brought home some of Bo Bunny's new Country Garden for the Paper Niche on Friday and I couldn't wait to play with it. I did a quick page with a couple of pics from last March when we went to Disney for Jenny's 5th birthday.

Easter happenings

Hello again! I hope you all (all 3 of you, lol) had a great Easter. I had a fun filled weekend with my kids, family and friends, sans hubby, as he was away for work. On Saturday I decided to host an egg hunt for the kids and on Sunday we spent the morning at church and then the afternoon at the beach with some out of town family. It was such a fun, but exhausting weekend! Here are a few pics from the egg hunt.

And lastly, my hubby who obviously knows me too well, brought this home for me tonight when he came back from London. I love how big it is, perfect for these late night "study" sessions, speaking of which, back to my homework I go. Until next time :)

 yes i'm bad at this keeping up with this place stuff. But it's always the usual excuse, life. It's so full, sometimes overflowing, and for that i'm thankful. I'm blessed to have so much going on, because it means I'm alive, and I'm loved! Sometimes life is not such a bad thing after all... At the moment school is keeping me busy, I'm almost through my busiest semester yet! In the meantime, I'm thinking big, got lots going on in my world away from scrapbooking. There are so many possibilities ahead of me, and so for the meantime, I'm in the thinking phase, hoping to choose what's right for me and my family and what will make waking up every day, a lot more fun! I sure do miss being creative. I'm headed to my scrap room to play for a few minutes before I must hit the books! Take care, until next time.
