hump day!

well, looks like this week is going by fast! why does it seem to do that as i get older? it just reminds me to quit procrastinating and get things i want to do done! like right now, i really should be making a couple of "thank you" cards instead of being on the computer......anyway just a quick post to show a couple of layouts that i got done this past weekend! both of these layouts were made using the february kit "bakers dozen" from studio calico. go check them out and subscribe, you wont regret it! well, maybe your wallet will 'cause you'll want to buy every kit and add-on they have,lol........enjoy :)

ps. just wanted to note that the layout above "in her eyes" is a total lift from lisa truesdell. she is a design team member over at studio calico (favorite place on the net) and this layout made me swoon! i dont usually "totally copy" people's stuff but in this case, i had no other choice! haha, thanks lisa!

my girlfriends and i went to the beach for a weekend of scrapbooking and good times! as usual we all acted waaaayyy too goofy and cut up like we'd lost our minds but it was just the thing we all needed! robin owns the condo right on the beachfront and she is awesome in making it available for us to enjoy several times throughout the year! and being that we all live within 30 mins. of driving there, it's perfect! however this weekend we got a rare treat here in snowed! yes, although not much to speak of on the beach but inland we got about 4 or 5 inches! the dogs loved it but the poor cat didn't appreciate it much at all :( here are some pics of our weekend at wild dunes! enjoy

sunday sketch

today i thought i would post the sunday sketch from studio calico. every sunday now, they post a sketch on their blog and invite anyone to join in on the fun! just create a layout based on the sketch and link it back to this post on the blog! they randomly draw one or two winners per week and you receive a $5.00 gift certificate to use at the shop! pretty cool huh? come on and play's a lot of fun and it has really motivated me to get scrappin' (plus you get to look at everyone else's take on the sketch) have a great day!

Well, i wanted to share something that really made me smile. My only daughter is a senior in high school this year and she applied to several colleges. She got accepted to all of them but "the one she reaaallly wanted" was this one! USC in Columbia, South Carolina! Now I have to say she has really good taste in colleges. I have always loved the Gamecocks and always had dreams of going there myself back in the day. But there was also another side of me that never wanted to leave my mom and dad! ha, imagine that! Anyway I had a feeling she would get accepted there so I grabbed my camera and snapped away! Congratulations Brianna, mom's proud of you! Heres a layout I did using my January kit from Studio Calico! Thanks for reading this far and have a great day. Only 2 more days till the weekend you know :)

happy birthday sis!

Hello out there! hope everyone's week has started out smoothly! i am off on monday's so for me the week doesn't start until tomorrow. it's always a little slow this time of year at a salon. the rush of the holidays is over and things are back to "normal", ha!

tomorrow is my sister's birthday! yea!!! she will be 31..... i can't believe that much time has passed since she was born. it rea
lly does seem like yesterday that i was picked up early from middle school and taken to the hospital to see my little baby sister! wow! i was 14 yrs old at the time and a spoiled only child.... a little "annoyed" that i wouldn't be getting all the attention anymore, but in the end, i guess she grew on me a little, heehee :) i love you more than you know Amy!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

back to reality monday!

Ugh! i cant believe it's all over! i really dont like this time of year. i tend to get a little down after all the fun and getting together of the holidays. it just feels like a letdown after all the fun! i also am not a fan of cold weather. there's no sunshine, its gray, cold! i guess it could be worse though. at least we dont get snow! oh wait....the weatherman is actually calling for some snow flurries this thursday or friday! great! oh well, we'll make it.
enough about that. its a new year and time for some new rules! i hate the word resolutions! most of us never stick to them anyway so maybe we should just say we are gonna try our best to do better and just go from there. me, im gonna try to be better about what i put into my "big mouth" also, gotta move more! you know, maybe actually go for a walk! ha... no promises, just gonna reaaaally try!! oh, and im also gonna make myself scrap more. i have sooo... many supplies. all the latest and greatest stuff out there you know, so i may as well actually make something. you know, like a layout or card or SOMETHING! jeeesh also, im not gonna be buying as much stuff. now this one will be hard!!! im an addict when it comes to scrapbook supplies. i will still subscribe to my favorite kit club, Studio Calico, but no more running out to the local Micheals or AC Moore every couple of days! very bad! so who's with me? any of you out there trying to do better? let me know......
