New Projects

What a wonderful Memorial Weekend we had here. Hope all of you did too! It was so relaxing to just be home in our own backyard - cooking on the barbeque, swimming in the kiddie pool and seeing friends. The parade always goes right by our house so we never miss it! The kids cover their ears when the soldiers fire their guns.
The flower cone above was inspired by Teresa McFayden's that she made on her blog, My Minutia. Hers is much nicer, but I loved this project - it's so cheery by my door and only took me ten minutes to make - seriously!

And this page my daughter helped me make today. I have so many wonderful spring pictures and not enough time to scrap them all!

The best Mother's Day present

Look what I got this year from my wonderful husband! It's a digital picture frame! Is this cool or what? All I have to do is pop a memory card into the side and turn it on, and it displays a slideshow of pictures. It even plays music and movies! (Haven't done that yet, though.) The nicest thing about it is that it sits up on top of my desk with only one wire going down the back and you don't need a computer. It even has a remote. I feel too cool for school with this baby on my desk! Thanks, T! You're the best! He even got me flowers too.

Here's some pics of recent projects I've done. I have so many but will only post a few here. The weather has been so beautiful all of a sudden. I can't stop snapping pictures of the kids, the garden, the yard, etc. I love spring!

And here's a card I made today - I had fun at the CK Convention today and used my new supplies. It's for my good friend who I know won't see it posted here because she's much too busy taking care of her new babies... but I miss you!

Layouts and a Giveaway!

Hey everyone, happy Saturday! Here, it's cold and wet. Not at all like May should be. But I'm sure it will improve in time. We've had a busy week and I'm only now finding time to slow down and smell the flowers, even though they're soggy! Here's some layouts I did recently that I actually liked the end result.

And I don't know if I ever posted a picture of these here before, but they are some letters from Say It With Letters that I decorated. I absolutely love the mixed-up typefaces and the the size of these letters. You should go over and check out the Say It With Letters blog because they're having a giveaway this weekend for National Scrapbooking Day! You might win something sweet and you can also check out all the new shapes and kits! Tell them I sent you - have a great week everyone!
