Two layouts

I have broken up with my who should not be named kit club .  They have changed a lot in the past few months (cancellation terms, cost, dwindling contents) and really alienated long time customers.  But I still have a few kits laying around that I need to use up.  I used the March Odyssey kit and scraplifted a layout by Tracy.

Again I used my March Odyssey kit and scraplifted a layout by Cari Orellan.

Another reason why I've broken up with who should not be named kit club....there website sucks and I can't link to the layouts I scraplifted.  I do like these layouts but not enough to spend my dollars at the who should not be named kit club.....hehe.

Float Trip

Last summer we took the big kids on their first ever float trip. We decided to do the Black River versus the Current River since you could do a shorter float and the Black does not have as fast a current.  It was a beautiful day and I think everyone had fun...well except for maybe Abby.  I will never forget the look Abby gave me on this trip!  We were bungeed three wide and Abby and I were in the front on the outside.  We were coming into a turn in the river that we were going to have to paddle hard thru to keep form being pushed into the cliff.  As I was instructing Abby to row she looked at me in full terror and screamed "We're going to die!".  We weren't really in any danger and of course we made it thru with no problems.  The best part Megan was sitting on a cooler behind us munching on cheese puffs like nothing was going on.  Love those kiddos!

I wish we could have gone this year also, but weekends are hard to come by in the summer.  Look out 2016 WE ARE COMING BACK!!!

it's a beautiful life

Ahh I squeezed in a little time for myself last night and completed this page.  Scrapbook Generation made it easy since I used one of their kits, but i tweaked it a lot to work with my pictures.

It is a beautiful life, make sure to take time for yourself and enjoy!!!  I know our kids and homes can take over our lives but it is up to us to not let that happen.  That load of laundry was still there when I was done with this page and it didn't complain when I started folding it.  But I sure felt better folding once I did something to make me happy first!

Two layouts

I am still cranking out the layouts!!  I am still working with papers I got from my last shopping spree at Scrapbook Generation.  Since I have quit receiving Studio Calico kits my layouts have gone back to my tried and true linear style.  Not as much fun stuff going on on the pages...but they are done and in my books!

Tractors and Summer smiles!

The annual steam engine show is still one of Dave's favorite.  I picked up some papers at my LSS Scrapbook Generation that I knew I could use for this page! Nothing too exciting but it's one for the books!

Trying to make up for doing a bunch of Allison layouts all in a row.  Ashley gets to steal the show with Brogan, what a fun day!  Again I just picked up these papers to get some summer layouts done.  I used a layout by Libelula for inspiration.

P.S. It's the most wonderful time of the year....Baseball playoffs....Go Cards!

Halloween too

I did a little bit of shopping this past weekend at my LSS Scrapbook Generation.  I tired to pick up papers for pictures I knew I had left to scrap.  I saw this great Halloween costume inventory paper and picked it up to document these two cuties costumes.  Ugh costumes.....I have not pushed my kiddos to decide what they want to dress up as and I really don't have time to think about it.  Anyone else there with me?  Allison keeps telling me she wants to be a mermaid...again?  Is it bad if I make her wear last years costume :)

I am slowing working on my 2014 pile of pictures, my goal is to be done by the end of 2015.  Two more months to crank out some layouts.  December will be set aside for a December Daily Album but I still haven't figured out what I want to do this year.  Not enough time in the days!  These layouts came toghether farilry quickly and I used some of my stash!
