My girls

And just like that I scrapbooked. I know I complained last night that I just was not inspired. My April Studio Calico kit Singing in the Rain was just not doing it for me. Well last night I was determined. Singing in the Rain was just so girly... which should be easy for me I have two girls. After paging thru the paper for the upmteenth time this week... it hit me. Go look at Stephanie Howell's gallery, she is awesome at girly pages (she has four girls). I found this layout and was inspired.
P.S. I misted again... I think I am addicted!

We need an Ark!

It has been raining here non stop since yesterday morning. I emptied out my rain gauge tonight, it was spilling over. It had 8 1/2 inches in it and I had last emptied it on Friday. Wow that's a lot of rain. The roads are slowly become small lakes. I am concerned how I am going to get into town tomorrow morning to get Ashley to school. So if anyone has an ark they aren't using, please send it my way!

I really have been uninspired with my scrapbooking this past week. I have wanted to do some layouts but every time I sit down... I get nothing. Not sure what it is, but I did manage these layouts this past week.
This was a quick one, a layout from Embellish Its Latest and Greatest class at CKC St. Louis last year.
Just a quick layout to remember one of the neatest men I have ever know. I was so lucky to learn from Hubert and become his friend. He was always great with Ashley and she loved to go pick up work from him with me. We miss you Hudy!

Scrapbooking 1st Day

A quick layout of Ashley's 1st day of Pre-K. I used Studio Calico Elementary papers and an Allison Davis sketch. I also used some misted stars that I did in a class at CKC STL this year. Love that misting.

I have figured out the key to me scrapbooking is spending time to get a big order of photos printed. Not much fun but definitely worth it so I can scrapbook!

Even more

Another quick layout this week from a Super Saver Session at Scrapbook Generations. It was a rainy day line from Nikki Silvis so it is really limited but I thought it was okay to match up with these photos from Wacky World. Who knows maybe it was raining that day?

I'm on a roll

A total scrap lift of this layout by Nicole Samuels. I used my April Studio Calico kit. But best of all I misted! I just bought these Mr. Hueys this past weekend and I used every color I bought but one. I love them already!

My anal retentive self is pissed that the placement of the photo and mat is off center. Does anyone else notice stuff like that or is it just me?

Scrapbooking and stuff

It was so so nice this weekend, we spent so much time outdoors. Springfield broke the record high, it was 86 degrees. It was wonderful, but today it is freezing again. Ugh! We spent most of the weekend building Ashley's new wooden playset. Wow those things are a lot of work. It started out as four boxes but now we have a 4 story play set. So far Ashley loves it and was begging to go out tonight and swing, but it was too cold. Allison got her first chance to swing this weekend and she loved it. Just like her big sister, I can remember Ashley always in the swing when she was little. We also got to do a little kite flying. Maybe I should do a post with some pictures of this weekend later.

Now onto some scrapbooking...
A quick layout about Ashley best friend from the old babysitter. The BFF sticker came from a sheet I got in my free grab bag from Scrapbook Generation's grand re-opening this weekend.
Ashley loved loved loved (to say the least) the tractor pull and Dave's cousin Rodney brought home a trophy which made her even more excited. I scraplifted this from this months cover layout on scrapbooks etc. magazine.

Made from my Studio Calico March Kit Into the Woods. I used an Allison Davis Sketch for this one, I stretched a one page sketch to two pages.

A fun weekend ahead... CKC St. Louis, two whole days of scrapbooking and shopping!
