Fall is near

I know Autumn is knocking on our doorstep around this time because of school portrait time.  Both the girls had their portraits taken this week. This is Samantha's first time taking them for school. She has pictures today and I pray she doesn't pull a funny face like this when it's her turn.

or like this

or even this

I gotta face facts though.. she is my child and prone to lots of silliness!

I can hope for something like this though.

Timeless Daydreams reveal

My house has been filled with kindergarten cooties since Samantha's 3rd day of school. It's unreal to me how many germs must circulate throughout the school in one day. I'll be buying germ X by the gallon if I could find time to make it over to Sam's Warehouse. lol

Anyway, on to the FUN stuff.
Here was our gorgeous July/August kit Summer Fling.
Little Yellow Bicycle
9 Beautiful Textured Double Sided patterned papers
1 Glitter and Texture Decorative Edge Cardstock
1 Pack 6x6 Double Sided Decorative Edge Cardstock - VERY CUTE!!
2 Journal Cards (Cards Will Vary)
Jenni Bowlin
1 Pack (6 Cards) Mini Beach Bingo Cards
American Crafts
2 Packs Vinyl Sprinkles - Teal and Yellow Thickers
4 Just The Edge Strips - 2 yellow/2 Orange (Strips Will Vary)
Fancy Pants
1 yrd. Aqua Ball Trim
May Arts
1 yrd. Yellow Sheer Dot

The LYB paper is a dream. It was so easy to work with. Held up beautifully to distressing, and it was so nicely textured and a great weight in paper. Little Yellow Bicycle has it goin' on!!

You can click on each photo to see it larger.  I added a bit of distress stickles to the sand dollars to bring them out a bit. You can see, this may be a beach kit, but it works so well for many different subjects.

Here's one of my honey Doug and I. We don't get photos with each other very often, and when I do, I like to get them scrapped pretty quickly.
The title was based off an old NKOTB song ;)

I was so excited/anxious/nervous when Samantha started Kindergarten, I scrapped this layout right away.
The little journal die cuts are amazing.  You can see on mine there are little glittered footprints.. even with those on there, the journaling went over the footprints and glitter easily, it was smooth.

I had the rest of this sunshine piece to use... ;)

This layout below was a challenge to 'do over' an old layout that bugged you, and turn it into something you like. I created this one in 2006.

 Here's my new and improved one. I just added that back sheet of ledger paper from Teresa Collins.
There are just a handful of these phenomenal kits left... and a contest going on in the forum at Timeless Daydreams too.  You could still play along for the fun of it!!

Summer is almost over.

I can't believe SUMMER is almost over. The pool has been abandoned from swimmers the last two weeks. I've been running around like crazy getting the girls ready for school. We all have new schedules with Samantha starting school this year. That means I'm in bed no later than 11pm and up by 6:03am. I'm still not used to the schedule, but hopefully soon my body will adjust. I never feel like I have enough sleep.

Samantha started Kindergarten this year. You can see photos over on Facebook HERE... but here is one of the funniest ones.

So sassy! She is LOVING school... she is my talker, so the house is pretty quiet. I was worried she would get into loads of trouble with talking, but so far, she's had all green lights for behavior. :)

Katelyn is top dog in Northside Middle school this year since it's her last year there.  She is taking her 3rd year of band, and also just this week picked up Stage Band. We drive her to school twice a week @ 7:10am. She is really loving that, and I'm happy her band teacher Mr. Denton asked her to join. She also has double block Algebra which is a high school class and I believe she gets a credit towards her diploma. That girl is soaring.

Cameron is loving the alone time with me. Some days we talk all day long, and other like this morning, we're glued to our computers working away.

Yesterday we celebrated Doug's birthday, he turned 37! I just realized.. I didn't pull out my camera. *groan*

All the new changes just had me neglecting my blog, and blogs I read. The only one I posted to pretty much was Timeless Daydreams.  The August guest designer was revealed today. I can't wait to see her work with the gorgeous August kit. I'll be uploading my work with it tomorrow.  I think that's a pretty decent update... time just gets away from me... I wonder what it will be like if I live to 80? ;)
