Busy, Busy, Busy

End of year projects, end of scouting year camping and trying to get myself registered for fall classes, while still finding time to scrap - busy doesn't even begin to cover it! I've been working on the same ONE page layout for two nights now, and I can't seem to get it done. Grrrr, I hate when this happens. I have completed a couple other layouts this week, though. There's this one, with pictures from Autumn's birthday party, who used to be a classmate of Nathan's:
I'm pretty happy with that one, but this layout of the State Fair is another story. I don't know what it is about it, but I'm just not loving it:
On the bright side, both of these layouts were made from some kits I've had lying around since 2005! Glad to finally use them. I made a couple goals over on the twopeas website today, too. My goals for June are: 1. Complete 10 (one or two page) layouts 2. Finish a card carrier I was working to store birthday cards I make. 3. Scan all the "really old" pictures I've been sorting through for a photo book project I'm working on for my mom and her sisters. It's a lot to get done in a month, especially with my son home for the summer, but I think it's an obtainable goal. Happy Scrapping!

"Love" Layout

I did this layout Thursday night, but am just now getting around to posting it. It was made using the June Scraptastic Club kit "Oh Snap!." I absolutely love all the products in this kit, and the layout itself. As much as I like the outcome, this layout was very challenging for me. I wanted this to be the first page in my "Book of Me" album, so I felt it had to exceptional. This is the first layout I've done that only had one picture on it. Also, this is the first time I've made a layout using only products from one kit. I think it came out really well, though.

Happy Memorial Day!!!

I suppose this means summer has officially started, and hurricane season is soon to follow. :-/. Never thought I'd have to worry about such a thing, but I hear we occasionally get them here in NC.

Nathan and his friend Ethan spent three fun hours at the pool, until mom decided it was too hot and we came home for a bit. Grandma is taking the second shift after dinner. Which, of course, is an eternity to two impatient nine year old boys. Hope everyone else has nice weather, too.

Finally. . . My First Post

So it took me about three hours, sadly, but my blog is mostly finished. I'm sure that, like everything in life, it will be a work in progress. It's up and running now, though, so it's time for a happy dance. In addition to working on my blog, it also occured to me (sometime around midnight) that I hadn't made the strawberry pies for the bbq tomorrow. Nathan is really looking forward to it, because it's a cub scout event, so not making the pies wasn't an option. On the bright side, there was no baking involved and it only took me 40 minutes to make two pies. Yay! Doesn't it look delicious though?
Night everyone!
