I didn't have to get muddy

I got my garden planted over the weekend last week.. so excited thinking about the fresh beans and tomatoes that will be harvested this year.  Every greenhouse I went to said we were in fact not late planting yet, especially since "the oldtimers" say not to plant before May 15th. *grins*

I have been wanting to get on here and update the ol' blog the last three days, but before I did so, I wanted to have Katelyn's Adlib solo Trumpet performance edited and ready to show, BUT I have been having technical difficulties. (This Mac is gonna be the end of me if I don't learn everything in a hot minute)  I hope to have that up this weekend.  Her Band Concert was amazing. We have such good teachers here in the County, I'm so thankful for all her wonderful teachers.

I got my Sassafras Lass goodie box from their sale, omg... such cool stuff in there!! Stuff I didn't even realize they had.  Could only imagine the DT goodie boxes those lucky ladies get. *daydreaming*

I bought the May kit from The Scrapping Spot (they have a DT call going on right now) and created a couple of layouts with it.  I'm gonna go ahead and share them here, because I've already submitted my application, and they were the first ones to see it. ;)

When I sit down to scrap, my mom is on my mind a lot.. so I'm starting to scrap her and my feelings about not having her here with me.

I just adore the papers from Bella Blvd's Family Dynamix line.



I'm a sucker for cute stick pins. (remind me to show you how I store mine)


Journaling says, "Before I lost you, I would have made fun of our clothes, hairstyles, and glasses. Now when I look at these photos, all I can see is Love."

The glasses and poofy hair are pretty dang funny tho!

And here's Samantha's classroom photo. Some of her classmates crack me up. The Tim Holtz clock arm is pointing to her. In the kit we got Rummikub game pieces. I just covered up the number with a cute flower.


I know the bubbles aren't suppose to be in the glue, but I swear it adds character. I like the look. Maybe I'll drop a drop or two of alcohol ink in while the glue is still wet next time.

I love twine! It's a good thing because it's so hot right now. I used it to accent a lot on this layout. For the loopy flower here, I just made figure eights with the twine, then stuck it to the back of the pop dot on the flower center, then added liquid glue to adhere it down.

We were given a lot of those dew drops, their the perfect small accent. I think the blue flower looks like he's smiling. :)

More twine detail


We have three sick ones in the house right now, so I'll keep my hugs and kisses to myself... stinks we couldn't make the free Vally Splash day today. Hope your day is a happy one.
