where have I been?

Well I was sick with Strep throat for about a week, I got Chris off on the bus for Camp 10 days ago he is due to return on Wednesday. I spoke to him on Friday he was excited because he as he says got a girlfriend name Jennifer, that kid is just too funny. I decided on Saturday that I would redo his room. So now instead of relaxing I am painting but I can't wait to see his reaction to a freshly painted room. I was able to scrap last week, I was inspired by the Timeless Daydreams July/August kit. It's packed with pattern papers from Little Yellow Bicycle line Boardwalk. When I finish with Chris room I will  then get my scrapping ON! lol Any way here are two layouts I have created, thanks for looking!!!

doing the countdown

as some of you may know my son Chris is leaving for camp in just 2 more days. I am doing getting everything listed on that long campers list. I'm more than positiive he will need 2 suitcases. It's for 13 days and it's the first time he's going to be away on his own for that long. On a good note I think he is more excited than I am. He is telling everyone who will listen that he is going to camp, and then he asks them are you going to miss me. I tell you this kid is just too funny!

Oh I created a layout for Prima's August sketch challenge, and I just love Prima so here is my take. Thanks for stopping by. If you want to participate here is the blog link Prima and it was the August 9th post.

Lazy Sunday, turns into a Scrappy Sunday...

As sick as I feel, stuffy nose, fever, light headed and I still find time to do one of my favorite things. SCRAP of course. It is just so relaxing, but I must admit had to put my head down on my table a few times I just felt the room moving. Here is a card I created with Ruby Rock-it Designs and I used a sketch from Paper Crafts magazine July/August issue. I also created a very simple layout! Well thanks for looking! Muah!!!

Had a great weekend!

Went to the movies to see Despicable Me, what a great kids movie. It was 3D and even had a good story line! I decided it was finally time to cut into the Ruby Rock-It designs pattern papers, oh I loved working with this paper and embellies to match. If you have not seen their products here is a link to the website Ruby Rock-It. I love, love, love the chipboard alpha it has this distress look. Fabulous! Today is a new day, new beginning and you guessed it I feel my scrapping coming on! Have a great day and thanks for looking!

that is the name of my most recent Perfume which I purchased at Charlotte Russe. How odd and yet perfect. You may wonder why odd, well because I never took the time in the last week to read the name, I just put it in my cart. Perfect because in a time when I most need to seek refuge I have found it, not in my perfume but in knowing that God is still here in my life confirming things for me even in a bottle of perfume. Letting me know that He is my Refuge. Psalms 9:9 The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed a stronghold in times of trouble. Recently I created a layout titled Jesus take the Wheel, really its about just letting go and giving it all to God. Trusting, that He is in charge even when you feel discouraged, broken and weak. I want to thank Leah Crowe for creating a challenge about just letting it go, putting it out there on paper. Am I still struggling, the answer is Yes but I do know that He is my refuge, my protector and that I have to let it go! Thanks for stopping by.

I already have the Clip it Up Jumbo Unit, and I thought oh well if I get the same one, I'll be okay with that because it is a handy storage tool to have. Well OMG I got my goodies and I got these I was truly excited and now I can't wait to put these up today!!! So thanks to Clip it Up for an awesome prize!!!

Mad hatter

Oh I just love this paper from Graphic 45 as soon as I got it in my hands I was inspired to create! Loved it so much that I ordered more of this fabulous paper so I can use my Maya Road Chipboard Home album. In October I will be teaching my creative class this layout, Making the most out of your pattern paper. You know how it is you buy a pattern paper and are afraid to cut it, either because it's too pretty or you are just intimidated by the design. I will be showing how to delve right into it. I was thinking today wouldn't it be great for all who attended the class to wear Mad Hatter Hats, so for those of you attending that October class be inspired by the colors of the layout, and wear a matching top so that we can all take a group photo and scrap it!!!! thanks for looking
