a Challenge!

Over at Noel Mignon we are having a challenge to scrap a page about where your name come from! I'd like to say mine is super exciting... haha.. but mom said that she had a friend in college that had my name and she liked it, then my middle name just sounded pretty with it. wa-laaa.. story of my name ;)
Check out the Noel Mignon Challenge Blog to see the other dt girls take on the challenge:
I used the (sold out) "Sonoma Country" kit for this page:

Here is another page I used the oh so yummy "Sonoma Country" kit from Noel Mignon... to see the sketch that goes along with this layout head over to the Inspiration Blog... just don't laugh at my crayon drawing

In some fun news! Kenna had her first softball game this past weekend and she got a hit... and went all the way to 2nd!! Oh I'm just super excited... this is her first year to play softball and she looks to just be natural at it, SO MUCH FUN!!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Caution: Cute Stuff Ahead! :)

Tami Mayberry sent me this cute little set of stamps to work with for her release over at GinaK Designs and I just fell in love! I mean seriously, how stinkin' cute is this set?
You can check them out here

I've never considered myself too much of a stamper, but I loved this challenge to use these cute stamps not only on cards (much easier for me) but on layouts too! Here are my projects using the "Oh Boy!" stamp set:

**side note... look at how much my baby has grown!! Pictures of Matthew at 2 years and then again at 7 years... sigh.. time passes WAY too quickly!**

Ok... just wanted to share!
Thank you Tami for letting me play along with your new release!
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Baseball, Baseball, Baseball...

That's pretty much what our weekend consisted of!
Matthew (keep in mind he is seven almost eight years old)... played 5 games on Saturday from 9am and we left the field at 11:30 that night... his team took 3rd place in the tournament though!! About the 4th game he had enough and was pretty much in tears on the field, he wasn't the only one though... little turds were all tired! lol Did I mention it was rainy and muddy and cold all day too? joy.
This was him about 5 minutes after us arriving home... he sat on the couch and was out cold!

Next up are 2 CPS cards that I have done recently that I forgot to post:

and for some Jillibean Soup cards... these are both real quick and easy cards to recreate!

I am finally ahead of the laundry that had piled up... few more loads to go and I am caught up! and the house is somewhat clean... so I feel like I can start the week on a better foot than I did last week now at least!!
It's been nothing but rainy and yucky around here lately and all i would like to do is curl up and nap! (a girl can dream right?)

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Core Impressions...

Ok so this has GOT to be some of my favorite stuff to play with lately!!

Here is some of the Jillibean Soup Core Impressions with the Jillibean Soup Egg Drop Collection... good stuff!

Note: this is just an air pistol... I don't have my dear daughters using a pistol... especially that close up to her eye... just a little redneck fun down by the lake is all! lol

Next is some of the Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions cardstock!

Just wanted to share a few projects and update my blog, I know I'm a slacker!
things are normal crazy around here... baseball/softball season is starting this weekend and we are in full force with practice and such and it's just insane!! We literally drive from the time we get out of school until around 9 each night just going and going... I guess that's what happens when you manage a small herd!!

Hope everyone is having a great week!
Thanks for stopping by!

Lots to Share!!

First off this little beauty here had cheer tryouts yesterday and made it!!! I am so stinkin' proud of her, she was a cheerleader last year as well but it's always nervewracking to get up in front of your peers and do a tryout! And to boot... she made CO CAPTAIN!!! yeah Madison!!!

Next up is a recent CPS card... this is #161

Here is a layout I did recently with the beautiful Noel Mignon *sold out again* "Sonoma Country" kit:

Speaking of Noel's kit... the May kit "Playdate" will go up for sale on the 15th of April... her kits always sell out quick and I think this one will be no exception... I am LOVING what I see here and can't wait for my kit to arrive to dive right in!!

Ok I'm off for another filled weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
