School Days

My youngest is turning a year older tomorrow!  I can't believe how time has flown. It is crazy!  Life is full of soccer and play dates and school events.  I like to capture them all and scrap about our lives.  Time is fleeting.

I made this page using Daily Stories from Teresa Collins.  I love the mix of colors in this line!

I went layer happy on this page....I really like the elements in each collection and like to cluster!
I just got a new box of Teresa goodies and I can't wait to create!  Be on the look out for some exciting stuff from Teresa!

Its That Season

My busy time at work is kicking off.  It is tiring just thinking about it.  But I am determined to set priorities and try to not sweat the small stuff.

Today, I am quickly posting a recent page that showcases a photo of my daughter.  I love when you get the photos of just right moments.  Ella glaring at me, giving me "the look" is perfect.  I can't wait to show her kids this one day.

I kept the page simple and light in color.  I wanted those fiery eyes to pop out!  I added in some Kraft Polaroid squares to make the photo stand out.  I also added tiny embellishments like the wood veneer banner and the enamel dots.  Love Teresa's Daily Stories line!

I use my Xyron Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive to hold down the wood veneer.  It is my new favorite product! It comes with the adhesive kit!  Seriously, I can't live without this stuff!

I am off to try and relax on this Friday night.  Scrapping and sleeping to be done!

Monday's Musings: Energy Changer

I spent the last week exploring the red rocks and canyons of Sedona, Arizona.  Steve and I had a beautiful vacation, just the two of us.  I was so struck by nature's beauty.  The doldrums of winter and all the sickness I had been feeling prior to leaving washed away.  It was amazing.
I can't get over the scenic views and the horizons.  We really felt energy like no other.  It was positive and uplifting.  I feel renewed.  There is work to be done, but I am up for changing energy and bad habits. 
This page is fitting for how I am feeling.  Comfortable in my skin, aware of my faults, knowing what I want to change and loving me along the way.
This page was made using the Our Travels line by Adrienne Looman and Webster's Pages. One of my favorite collections of the season!
It was an amazing trip.  I will learn so much from every experience I had.  I believe this trip and all the events that went with it are meant to be life changers.

Monday's Musings: When You Love to the Moon

It is amazing to me....this thing called love.  When you find it, you will do anything for it.  You will more easily hear hard truths.  You will more easily say I am sorry.  You will definitely laugh more and count your blessings.

This thing called love has a name.  His name is Steve.  I love him as a friend, husband, fellow educator, father, son and person.  Because of him and I, my life has gone in directions I never expected.

I love him to the moon and back and around a thousand times again.  I expect that as we move forward in life we will have to shoulder our share of sad and difficult.  We have done that before and will do so again.  That sad and difficult won't last forever.

I'll be his and he'll be mine just like the tag says.  I used the April kit from Scrapbooking From the Inside Out to make this page.  Love the blue!

When you love to the moon, you often feel very lucky and content.  I am lucky and content.

Having Fun with Paper

Having fun with paper as I celebrate having fun with friends.  I made this page using the April kit from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out.  It has lots of fun Webster's Pages inside and I am a huge WP fan.  I did lots of fussy cutting on this one!
So lucky to have an amazing group of friends! There is nothing like just letting go and having fun. Everyone just accepts one another!
I love the party table feel!  Be sure to head over to the Scrapbooking from the Inside Out blog.  Each Monday, I will share some insights into my pages!  It is really a cool concept that I hope you will check out!

Life is about the stories!  I love to share mine!

Inside the Art: Celebrate

It is April and with a new month comes a new kit from Scrapbooking From the Inside Out.  This month's kit is called Celebrate and it features Webster's Pages and Jillibean Soup.  These are two companies I love! 

I decided to make pages with happy themes that celebrate the good in my life.  One of my pages is about how I have just finished P90X3.  90 plus days to hard work and dedication.  I pushed my body and my mind.  I saw changes in my strength and proved that I have overcome an injury from a couple of years back.

I kept this page simple, letting the bold orange pop!  I incorporated the typewriter as a symbol of documenting change!

There are cool, vibrant colors in the Jillibean Soup pages...so much fun!

Look at some of the very cool embellishments from this kit!  I am very much enjoying scrapping with the SFTIO goodies!  You should check them out!

I also plan to enjoy working out, mixing up P90X workouts from all the series.  I want to see how in shape I can get at age 40 plus!
