Summer is finally here and…some really GREAT news!

May 31st, 2011

Well we packed up Sat night and headed up north, both kids and myself and hubby.  My parents and brother were already there.  The downfall is everyone seemed to be fighting a cold.  Makenah developed a very high fever and we tried to nurse her back to health.  In between fevers we enjoyed a stroll outside and a few other outdoor activities, however decided to call our vacation short where Makenah was still suffering after 4 days…ear infection was confirmed.  But we have warm weather finally….yes finally we have hit 80 here in Wisconsin!   All in all we made the most out of the Memorial Day weekend!

Now on to some fabulous great news!  I had submitted to Momenta Design Team Call!  I just adore there products!

Well I am so very honored that I have been picked to Guest Design for the month of August!    How very exciting!!!  When I read the announcement I was jumping up and down!!!!  So I can’t wait to share with you what I create with their products.  I’ll leave today with a few projects I created with Momenta product.  This should get you in the mood for summer fun!

Sketch Challenge with My Little Shoebox

May 31st, 2011

Needing a bit of inspiration to move me a long….the sketch challenge that My Little Shoebox has posted on their blog helped me out of my rut!  I pulled out my MLS papers and used some pics I had of Bray that I have been waiting to scrap!
I just loved the cute little car papers and vibrant colors.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my spin on it:

“Snack 2 go”

June is right around the corner…

May 25th, 2011

Have you thought about Father’s Day at all?  Do you have special plans for the day?  This will be my husbands first year with both kids so it’s extra special.  I’m still not quiet sure what we will do but I’m going to try and make it extra special.  I may try to create a mini book of the kids he can take to work and put on his desk.  His clients like looking at pics of the kids when they come in.  Just to motivate I thought I would share one of my favorite layouts of Bray and his Daddy.  I’m so glad to capture this fun moment.

Bella Blvd Studio and a Chaotic Week

May 8th, 2011

I love Bella Blvd so when I saw the latest contest I knew I had to find the time to create something!  The challenge meant a lot to me because it helped showcase just how busy my life has become.  You see when I had just one child I could scrap a lot but after we had Makenah my hubby started a new job with long hours, when I returned from maternity leave my job position changed a lot.  Now change is good, but I just find that my time to myself is very limited due to all the things I juggle in a week.  Now I would not take back one thing as it’s all for my family and on this mother’s day I’m grateful to my wonderful family.

So back to the contest, Bella asked us Mom’s to showcase all things we juggle in a week.  So here is my layout that lists things such as, 5:00AM feeding, making coffee, laundry, work, picking up the kids, dishes, diapers, bath time, bedtime and relax time.

I used several Bella Blvd papers and embellishments for this layout.  Crossing fingers and my toes I’m lucky, I would love to play with some new Bella Papers!

Happy Mother’s Day!
