Happy Thursday everyone!  Although the sun is shining, it's still a bit chilly up in North Country.... could have used a pair of mitts on my walk to work today believe it or not!

I'm enjoying some quality quiet'er' time at my house, as my youngest is visiting Grandma and Grandpa with Daddy for a few days, and my oldest went on a school trip for the same amount of time!  Just Kenna and Jackson to keep me entertained at home, and I'm getting some good cleaning done, throwing in a bit of scrapbook time I hope!!

This layout was done a few days ago, once again using the amazing Color Chaos line from Bella Blvd.  So fresh, fun, funky.  It was the perfect match for these not so perfect pictures that I got printed out from the photo shoot I did with the kids last fall.  You can't always just scrap the good pictures, you know!!

Tomorrow night I'll hopefully be taking part in the Scrap and Chat with Leah l'Orange and Orange Gearle from Paper Issues!  I think what we'll be doing is one challenge, one game, and lots of chatting!!  I have a feeling that the color orange MIGHT be involved. LOL!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.... please take the time to do one thing for yourself, and then time to do one thing for someone you love! :)

Are you a sketch lover?

Canadian Scrapbooker has a pretty awesome sketch every month.  It's called 'Sketchy Challenge', imagine that.  I have taken part a number of times, sometimes I forget to link it up in their gallery and other times I actual do myself a favor and remember.  This month I remembered.

I loved this months sketch.  Simple, clean, and lots of 'white space' which I promptly splattered my Dylusions ink on.  

I brought out my Bella Blvd Color Chaos again, the bright colors were PERFECT for these photos of my youngest son playing it up for the camera 2 years ago at the campground!

If you are in need of some sketch inspiration to kick your mojo in the arse, head on over and check it out, along with all of the submissions in the gallery!!!

Do what you love.... love what you do....

Good Day Everyone!

I'm sooo enjoying the warmer weather today, it's putting me in a great mood.
I've also been continuing my scrapbooking at a more regular pace, which is also 
keeping me in a wonderful mood.

I played around with the newest Sketchy Saturday sketch the other day, with my Simple Stories Say Cheese II collection... I'm finding a lot of my Disney pictures don't fit the color scheme, so we'll see how many I actually get scrapped with these papers after all!

I'm not normally a selfie fan, but I have to say we did take quite a few while in Disney... but 99% of them have Makenna as well, because I just have a hard time putting JUST ME in the frame.

Have a wonderful week, my friends!!  I'll be back later with another sketch I played around with from Canadian Scrapbooker!

April Fools!

I actually don't have any tricks up my sleeve.  I find April Fools Day to be supremely overrated, I have a hard time trusting people to begin with, so it's not at the top of my favorite days. LOL!  My kids all forgot what day it was until I was on my way to work too....

I was thrilled to have my layout for the sketch challenge at the Paper Issues Online Crop picked to win the prize for that category!!!  It's a bit of a yummy layout.  And by yummy I mean I could just lick that man from head to toe and not even feel guilty.  I apologize that it's a bit blurry, it's a shame really....

We are halfway through Spring Break and the kids are all still alive, I haven't been drunk once because of them, and I still like all 4 of them.  Successful?  Yup.
