Marvelous Monday!

What a better way to start the week than by being "star struck". Got a little comment on my blog from a "real writer"! OMG! I am a little excited (total understatement!) Hence, new links under the inspiration station to the right... come on, check 'em out! See where I spend some of my free time. As for me, I am going to work on the boys' room some more. Check out what I have been doing on their wall... we are the panthers, the mighty mighty panthers... I know, but I love my kids! Thanks to Lain for posting a comment on my blog, I am totally stoked! Have a great Monday-only ONE MORE DAY until we are off for Thanksgiving break, and boy... do I have a lot to be thankful for!

LOL! I had to! That is what I texted all of my friends when I found out I won Lain Ehmann's new book "Snippets" from Candice Palmer's blog (check it out: and THANKS to her for having such a wonderful prize! I can't wait to get my hands on it and READ! Here is a picture of the new book if you happen to be out and see it-grab a copy for you and one for your best scrappin' pal!

I didn't win the cute new stamps that Cathy Z. was giving away but do so love to read her blog! Here is a scrap page I made of the boys when they went out hiking-so cute! April and I had a swap challenge to make this layout. She bought new products and I bought new products and we switched. Then we made layouts with the products we originally bought-It was SUCH FUN! Try it the next time you crop with your friend-I love the way this layout turned out... and the boys are so cute! Enjoy-have a happy Monday!

Some layouts!!!

As promised, I finally got my act together enough to put up a few layouts. The first is a layout of Noah's puppy, Shiloh. Then I have a dear layout of my last baby's first haircut. Insert tears here! And, my favorite picture of Seth and Noah when they were younger. A moment captured on camera when they were actually being kind and brotherly toward each other. Love & kisses to all... I have 6 little boys spending the night tonight so I might not make it back for a while! LOL! Have a wonderful weekend!

Monkeying Around!

What a weekend! Yes, we are all over 30 years old and dressed up like monkeys! Why? Because it was the biannual scrapbook retreat weekend sponsored by Scrapbook Village! We ALWAYS enter the Saturday night pj contest! Notice the tails... made from coat hangers and men's sock, inconspicuously duct-taped to my back! We even had a song to boot: Hey, hey... we are scrappers and people say we monkey around... you get the idea... too much fun, too many laughs and way too much good food! I am so blessed to have great friends like these who act as silly as I do! We didn't win but had a great time trying! We can't wait until the retreat in March-you will have to come back in the spring to see what our new pj's will be-trust me, there will be many laughs involved! If you want to see all of the other great pj groups just visit I will try to post layouts that I scrap of these pictures-so much fun!
