Projects to share!

Yeah I pretty much suck at keeping up with this blog, I know I know.
Here are some fun Core'dination projects I did this month to share.

Other than that... we are finishing up football season here. This weekend is the big game against the towns rival.... so it should be fun! Get this.... we will trick or treat on SATURDAY due to the game on Friday.... they are concerned with traffic for the little ones! love that!
The girls started dance classes this week, so that add three more nights of traveling all over to our weeks! Basketball season is next and Morgan will play for the school and Mitchell for the city... then I need to find Matthew something to do also! So basically I will probably never be home and will just be providing a taxi service to the short ones! That's alright, that's my job right? *sigh*
Peace out homies! :)

Sharing and Sickies!

Oh man.. this house is full of sickies!!

Last Monday Morgan and Makenna had both strep throat and sinus infections.
Mitchell had strep throat.

Kenna gets better from strep... Friday middle of the night starts throwing up, continues on Saturday (she was better JUST long enough to ride the float for the town parade though!) with fever and the pukes.

Saturday night Madison "mom my throat hurts".. Monday (today) confirmed strep!

good gracious!!

So I am going to Lysol the whole house and get it all cleaned up and hopefully we can stop the madness.

Saturday was the Rip Fest here in town, our first to go too!

Madison rode the Pep float and Makenna was to ride the Elementary float to represent her class. They were both pleased as punch and had so much fun! Mo was supposed to ride the football float but didn't feel up to it.

Then after was Mitchells football game.. I am proud to report the little sucker was in on 3 tackles!! This is his first year to play and just being "him" this is a big deal to report!

Alright.. aside from all this I worked on 2 layouts this weekend... and I thought I'd share!

The first one is with Dream Street Papers and Core'dinations cardstock. The journaling is about how Makenna is in that 'in between' phase growing her bangs out.

This one I used the new Glitz papers and the Black Magic line from Core'dinations cardstock (love this stuff!!!).. this line was SO perfect for these pictures of Madison! The journaling talks about how Madi is just so excited to play percussion this year and had made 1st chair! so proud!!

That's it...

Music Lovers

I figure with the announcement of the NEW Dream Street team tomorrow I would share my recent favorite DS layout! This Remember the Moments collection was perfect for this page of Madison and Mitchell in the orchestra last year. I did this page for one of the new Busy Bee articles that went up today!

Tomorrow is the day we plan to announce the new additions to the Dream Street Design Team!!! There were so many fantastic entries, what a difficult choice!

Core'dinations Projects

Just a quick post today sharing some of my Core'dinations projects!! I just love this darn cardstock, so cool with all the possibilities!!

You can see that I have become fast friends with my Cuttlebug and the Coredinations cardstock... they are a perfect match!!!

I have been on a serious computer journaling kick lately and usually I am handwritten all the way! I'm loving it though. I am really trying to concentrate more on the journaling and getting better at it, rather than the wham, bam, here's your journaling ma'am style I tend to lean towards! LOL

Also, please keep my cousins little boy in your thoughts. He has a heart defect and has many surgeries since he was born. He went again this week for a scheduled surgery and
is struggling in recovery. Please keep Brayden in your prayers and his mom, my cousin Tara and her dh Aaron. Thank you!
