Murphys Law....

has truly kicked our butt around here lately!!

Yeah I said I was going to be back Monday to post projects... and well.. that Sunday I came down with a full on ass kicking case of the flu! :( (before that Matthew had the stomach bug)... and then during my flu Makenna comes down with stomach bug.. then the tail end of my flu Morgan gets it full fledged! grrrr... SO... yeah.. we have totally been out of commission for weeks!
But... I got busy Sunday and created my little butt off and finally got caught up on lots of stuff and projects!

First I wanted to invite you all to the Valentines Crop we have going on over at Noel Mignon... come by and check us out for LOTS of inspiring projects and ideas... and PRIZES too! (who doesn't love some free goodies?)
I put up a project today making Valentine Bag Toppers... remember the one I did for Jillibean Soup?
Well I took the same concept and used it to make Valentine toppers using the new Truly Scrumptious Kit from Noel Mignon! This is such a quick and easy project... I can see using it for all the holidays!! :)

To see the complete instructions... go here...

Also now that I am up and running I have had the chance to play with the new Truly Scrumptious kit.. and oh my I am so in love.. I knocked out three layouts and a card on Sunday!
Here are a few...
First one I did a layout of Madison and her boy Grandle... they have been going out a year now (I just adore them as a couple, I really do... even if I would really like her to just be playing with dolls still!) and I wanted to make a special page to document the day for her. :)

and a few close ups....



also right now we have a sketch challenge going on... come on over and join us on the challenge blog and win some goodies!!!
Here is my take on the sketch!
This is my middle son with his girl... she brought presents over for him for his bday... are they not just precious!? :)
both layouts used the Truly Scrumptios Noel Mignon kit... even though it's a valentines sort of themed kit... its so versatile!! Neither of these layouts are Valentines themed but the kit still totally works!!

ok so speaking of Murphys Law... Madison has high school tryouts in less than 3 weeks... we are all a bit freaking out nervous around here... no worries i'm not gonna go all postal like that other Texas mom years ago... haha!!
During Christmas time she broke her elbow FINALLY getting her backhandspring and is STILL not able to straighten her arm out completely... we are doing physical therapy and such and so we are just hoping she can get it out before tryouts, but we are nervous!
Up this week too are the end of the basketball season Little Dribblers tournaments... so we will be going ninety to nothing with tons of games this week for both the twins.. combined with Morgan's 2 high school games of course :)

Hope you all have a great week... I plan to be back and post my new Coredinations goodies soon... if Murphy doesn't get ahold of me again! ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
