A 2-Pager?

July 23rd, 2008

Yep that’s right…I completed a 2 pager. I loved the results…I have been on the fence about possibly starting a book for Brayden with all 2-pagers like I had done when I first started scrapping. I think this lo has convinced me to do so. Especially for events where I have several series of photos.

I was challenged by ScrapDango’s 4 week DT contest. What a fun way to see everyone’s talents and skills. We just ended Wk#3. We had to create a 2 pager with dominant colors of red and green, using 5 or more photos and one had to be larger than a 4×6.

Lets see what else..well the first two weeks of July we spent with a sick household.  Brayden had Hand, Foot, Mouth and then my husband got it.  Fun all the way around.  Bray was good for a week and now he has a fever and a cold.  Hoping that is just a day virus as we  had plans to go “up north” this weekend.

My husbands Dad is coming to visit next week and then traveling to Mrytel Beach with us for my sister in laws wedding.  I’m sure I will have plenty of stories on that.  Oh yes…

I have been feverishly trying to complete my MMM entry.  Yep I’m going to try for it.  Why not..what can it hurt right? Im just waiting for the photos in the 12×12 size to arrive that I ordered.

So that is what’s been going on! I’m off with my cup of coffee to get ready for a grueling day at work.


July already?

July 8th, 2008

Wow….this summer has just flown by already…and it has not even been warm that long. We completely missed the 4th of July. Brayden being sick and all. He was lucky enough to catch Hand, Mouth and Foot disease. Let me tell you that is not fun at all, for parent or child. I’m a bit sad we missed the parade and the fireworks but we are looking forward to this weekend. My company picnic is this weekend and it’s LARGE, they bring in ponies, petting zoo, mini rides for the kids, games, cotton candy, ice cream, popcorn…YOU NAME IT! I hope that will bring a smile to his face. Sad seeing him so miserable for the last week.

Now on to Scrapping news….well I’m trying to work on some entries for MMM and I heavily critique each layout which I think may be hindering…..I have 3 done 2 more to go by the end of July.

I’m also challenging myself with a DT contest on SCRAPDANGO’s site. It’s a 4 week contest and in the end they pick out their new DT members. Love being challenged so I thought I would give it a shot.

Here is my latest layout….using July’s kit from A Walk Down Memory Lane. Love all the bright colors. I have not scrapped many photo’s of me being prego but thought this worked out perfectly for the photo. I even took a pic of the cake and made it into a embellishment. (the stork)

I’m using this for my Wk #1 entry as the photo works so well with the quote. If there’s anything half so much fun as being alive, I’d like to know what it is!” R. Beuchner
