Thought I'd jump in real quick to let ya'll know I am in the process of moving... VERY excited to get into a new house! It's much smaller than what we are in now but it's new and it's MINE... so I'm a bit giddy.. anywho I am MIA right now not because I have once neglected my blog... don't laugh...but because I'm in transition! :)

Will update soon...
Thanks for stopping by!

CCG 167

I have been so busy I haven't been able to really play over at Color Combos Galore Blog... but now that I have some days at home I can! So excited to get back into the swing of things... check out this YUMMY color combo... I love the deep rich colors!! join us this week and play along!!
 and here is my take on the challenge:

Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock (pleated and embossed), American Crafts ribbon, October Afternoon patterned paper and sticker, Hero Arts stamp, Storage Unit Ink, Martha Stewart punch, Cuttlbebug embossing folder, Queen & Co jewel, ribbon and pins from craft supply.

Well I now have all the kids signed up for basketball... seriously have NO idea how I'm gonna work this season with all of them playing! Madi and Mitchell play on the same nights (seperate places, one home one away), then Morgan plays on the opposite 2 nights, church on Wednesday... THEN the twins will have practice probably 2 nights a week squeezed in there, games on Sat. and church Sunday....

Follow me? That makes for NINE days a week...
 what? what's that you say there are only SEVEN days in a week?
 yeah... I know...

Anywho... hope ya'll have a great weekend! I'll be back to share more cards next week! :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello there!

Hey all!
Just got home from my sons first basketball game... they played SO well!! (and won!)... Madison had her first game out of town and I had to miss it because I still have not figured out how to split myself in two and be in two places at the same time... damn it :(
I did get a lovely text from my friend with a picture of Madi who is now sporting a fresh new black eye, apparantly given on a layup during the game... this should be sweet colors in the next several days! lol

Then I have some fun news to share... I was asked to return to the awesome Noel Mignon design team!! So excited to get started this month.... THIS is what I get to play with.... check out this beauty! :)

Jillibean Soup Goodness...

Yes I know... it's been forever AGAIN since I've blogged! With cheer/footbal season finally over I am hoping that I can try and get back on some sort of regular schedule with blogging and hell just scrapping in general! I have felt so overwhelmed and off my game it's crazy!
But then again now it's basketball season and I will have ALL FIVE kids playing this year... joy... so I will be running in all different directions but at least I will have my days to catch up on work and such since there isn't pep rally preperations to work on! yeah!!

Up first is my layout I did from this years homecoming pep rally! I attempted to make a "mum" using the Jillibean ribbon, corrugated shapes, and journaling spots! whatcha think?
Next up I took this photo over the summer of Matthew and his best friend Jesse and I knew when I saw this Monster Stew collection from Jillibean Soup that I was going to do a page on these two monsters! His mom and I tease that we will have to work in shifts when they get older to keep them in line!

Next up is a couple cards I put togehter with the new Jillibean Soup collection!

Thanks for stopping by! :)
