A Busy Month

May is flying by & we have been so busy I have not had time to hold up my end of the bargain, A Page A Day in the Month of May. Between field trips, birthday parties, family events, Lacrosse games & just life in general, time has just been slipping away from me. Here are a few layouts from my stash to make up for the last couple days.

Amother Old Picture

This picture was taken at the park at the beach. The kids use to love going there, actually Spencer still does. Lexi is kind of over the whole going to the park thing. Just look at those holes in Spencer's jeans! This picture may be old but somethings never change, he still has holes in his jeans:)

An Old Picture

Wow my baby has sure grown up! I just love looking at these old pictures. This one is Lexi & her Papa at the beach!

Half Way

Wow I can't believe May is already half way over already. Time is just flying by. Before you know it the kiddos will be out of school and hanging out at the pool in the sunshine (Ok I really can't wait for that)!
Here's a layout with a picture from the top of Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain, one of my favorite views in the world.

A Different Size

When I started scrapbooking almost 14 years ago, I worked only with 8 1/2x11. When 12x12 became popular I loved it because it gave me more room to play! But it's always nice to go back to an old favorite! I might have to do more 8 1/2x11 layouts, I like them!

Another Flower

But, this one is out of fabric! Cool hu? Oh the possibilities are just sprinting through my head! Gotta go play with these. Stay tuned, they will be showing up on layouts to come!

Spencer AKA Fishbait!

Another Layout of Me & Spencer

I love this picture of me & Spencer taken at the beach last summer. We are both total beach bums (and so is Lexi). His footloose & fancy free attitude fits in perfectly at the beach.
I got some more pictures in the mail the other day so I'm off to create more fun to share with you from my stash (I really wish my stash wasn't so large, then maybe I could justify buying some of the cute new stuff showing up in the stores now:)

I love this picture of my boy & my nephew taken last summer on a camping trip. They look like they are contemplating their next fishing strategies & they probably are!

365 pix catch up!

May 1, 2010

More flowers, getting tired of seeing them yet? I hope not because I'm not tired of making them yet;)

May 2, 2010

My silly boy!

May 3, 2010

Here's the kind of dinner I "cook" when G is out of town! Hurry back honey the kiddos want real food!

May 4, 2010

Spencer's field trip to Phillip Foster Farms. Here he is doing laundry by hand!

May 5, 2010

The table is messy when G is gone!

May 6, 2010

The sun is shinning & it's actually warm enough to open up the house for a while today!

May 7, 2010

Mother's Day tags for my mama & mother-in-law. Little different than what I normally do but still cute!

May 8, 2010

Spencer not so patiently waiting to go pick up his daddy @ the airport.

May 9, 2010

Here are my two reasons to celebrate today!

May 10, 2010

Got some color on the deck during the last couple days in the sunshine! Come on summer, bring on the warm weather!

Page a Day Layout for May 10

Happy Mom's Day!

Life is slowly getting back to normal for me. G is back from Arizona! He was only gone for 6 days but the kiddos & I miss him and all he does around the house when he's gone. Since he works so hard when he's there he's exhausted so we are keeping Mom's Day quiet this year. No hike like we usually do, just being together that's all I want. That & maybe a good bbq dinner;)

Oh my goodness, I forgot to post a picture yesterday, oops:( I guess I'm more off than I expected this week. Sorry for the mess up!

May 6, 2010

The sun came out for a little while today & that makes me happy! Hopefully it will shine again tomorrow! I spent the day working on making more fabric flowers & taking Spencer to lacrosse! Tired, goodnight!

Pounding headache today, darn allergies:(
But I still wanted to stick with my Page A Day idea & share another layout from my stash! Enjoy, I'm off to try to get ride of my darn headache before the kiddos get home.

May 3, 2010

Busy day for us here! Spencer's class went on a field trip to Phillip Foster Farm & they learned a lot about pioneer life. And one of the benefits to being a stay at home Mom, I got to go with them! It did sprinkle a little & it was really cold but we didn't have the horrible downpours that I thought were going to happen, thank goodness! Now we are home & I'm slowly warming up while picking up the house so my parents can come over for dinner (I missed them while they were in sunny Hawaii)!

It's Monday...

and i'm feeling like it's really a yucky Monday! It's raining, the house is a mess & G left for AZ today. Lucky him gets to go toward the sun & i'm stuck in the rain:( But, here's my layout for Page A Day:

The one good thing about G being gone is i can spend some extra time in the evenings scrapbooking & that makes me feel happy! Maybe i can knock out some more of my goal of 100 pages with my stash (unless i get more fabric & burn more flowers). I'll keep you posted on how that's going!

Hello May 2nd!

Here's my layout for A Page A Day In The Month Of May #2:

The picture was taken last summer on one of our many famiy hiking journeys. I can't wait for the weather to get nicer so we can get out & hit the trails again. I just love hiking!
I'm off to work on more layouts for A Page A Day & take some more pictures. Have a great day!

National Scrapbooking Day

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! I am going to spend as much time as I can today on my favorite hobby. But I do have a busy family so I can't spend the entire day in my craft room. Plus, my kiddo is now on Twitter so she wants the computer all day (not gonna happen).
Today is also May first which means it is the first day of A Page A Day In The Month Of May #2! So here's my page for today:

Also wanted to catch up on my pictures and finish out April.
April 29, 2010

When I saw Lexi's soda can sitting on the table like this I almost freaked (ok, maybe I freaked a little)! I was so worried about the can falling & soda going everywhere. Then I stopped & really looked & then of course grabbed the camera! It's really actually cool. Never knew a can would do that!

April 30, 2010

Did you know that I am crazy about flowers? If you have seen my blog at all in the past month you already knew that! Here's my newest found love! I am going to have fabric flowers all over the house before you know it! You can wear them in your hair, around your wrist, clipped to your shirt, on a belt... endless possibilities & I need more fabric to make some more!
