Little Things Make Me Happy

How was your Thanksgiving Holiday? Mine was low key but very memorable. This year was spent with just our immediate family; all the relatives are back home in Louisiana, yet it was one of the best days I have had in a long time. My kiddos came to my rescue and helped me with the prep work in the kitchen. It was so nice to be surrounded by my babies....reminded me of when I use to follow my mom around in the kitchen. I would watch everything she did while talking her ears off about all my girl issues or the latest boyfriend. To now have my own kids doing the exact same thing is so deja vu.

After that was my baby boy's birthday. Happy Birthday Caleb!!!!! He is now a tween!!!! I can't believe how much he has grown. When he was a baby I would always call him my little man. As he got older, I recognized something in him that was so unique....he had an "old soul". So today as he begins his journey towards middle school and that awkward stage of "tween-ness" (I made that up), he is still my little man with an "old soul". I love you Caleb!!!! May all your wishes come true!

"Love You BABY"....This is my oldest son Landon and his girlfriend. I LOVE Cosmo Cricket's "Earth Love" line. I thought they worked perfectly with these pictures.

Hope all of you had an awesome holiday and a restful weekend. Hugs and Happy Scrappin!!!!!!

Creative Scrappers Reveal...Sketch #79

Today is another reveal day over at Creative Scrappers!!!! Go check out the amazing sketches and get busy scrapping!!!!!

This is just an extra layout I did the other day. I so love this picture of my mom and dad. They are such a fun couple and continuously keep me laughing. Speaking of fun, I had a lot of fun playing around with this new line from Crate Paper and to add a little bit of whimsey, I made this branch with my quickutz revolution and made the leaves with stickles. I think it turned out really cute...just what I envisioned for this picture.

Hope your having a great weekend!!!!! Much love!!!!!!!!

Glee, Jillibean, and Stuff...blah, blah, blah

Have you been turned on to Glee??? I just LOVE this new show!!!! I have always been a fan of musicals but add humor and a great cast and you have a recipe for Awesomeness!!!!! Such a refreshing change from all the dramas I am usually drawn to but not the "slap stick" comedy that seem to run in 30 minute intervals and is just plain stupid....just my opinion. I have not seen good comedy since Friends or Jerry Seinfield. But most of all, I love the music. The talent on here is just phenomenal!!!!!!! So, if you haven't noticed I have my playlist set to the latest songs done by the Glee cast. If you haven't checked it out, I highly recommend that you do.
Don't you hate it when you go shopping with a certain product in mind only to be disappointed because they don't have it???? My dear husband happened to be off this past weekend, which is a rare occurrence, and volunteered his time to take me to Archievers. For those of you who don't know, Archievers is fab scrap store. Anyway, I had gotten an email from them stating that they had Jillibean products in stock! I was beyond thrilled!!!!! Once I arrived and found the display of a limited supply of Jillibean goodies, I was sadly informed that the only line they had was the Christmas papers. Boo Hoo...I envisioned coming home with my arms full of Jillibean goodies and was sadly disappointed. That's ok, I still managed to rack up on some fab new products but I just really hate disappointment.
Here's a few layouts I have been working on.....ENJOY!!!!

I love to be inspired. I love the rush that you feel when you have that "light bulb" moment and all the pieces fall into place. That is what scrapbooking is like for me. I look at a sketch, new product or someone's layout and I am totally inspired. My love for scrapbooking continues to evolve as I meet more and more fellow scrappers who are constantly sharing designs and techniques through online scrap sites or blogs. As I drop off a few of my latest pages I want to thank all you who inspire me. The Scrapping world has a wealth of creativity just ooozing with talent...but most importantly I have been blessed with a wealth of friendships and a common bond that we all share. Nothing inspires me more than to chat, meet, or develop new relationships with all of you amazing Scrappy Women! What inspires You?

Oh What Fun!!!!!

What an awesome fall season this has been so far. Halloween was such a blast!!!! My parents were here and stayed for my birthday. I dressed up in a costume for the first time in years and so did my momma! Abigail and I were Pirates, Caleb was some kind of creepy clown and my mother found this awesome Witch costume. Landon, being the cool teenage dude that he is, attended a bon fire with friends and no costume this year. Pooh...I hate that time flies by so fast and kids grow up too quickly.

No scrappy projects this week, but stayed tuned to Creative Scrappers for the Sunday reveal!!!! It will be my first reveal for the design team and as always an awesome new sketch for your inspiration!!!!!
