I'm pathetic!! *hangs head in shame* :(

Ok, so April 18th was my last blog post. Let's not talk about how that was like 4 months ago!! Life has been busy, I've become a Facebook addict, and well, really, I'm just a blog dork! I've spent the last month or so scrapping for other people and last night I actually did a layout for me!!! Woo-hoo!! Hopefully I'm getting some mojo back!

So my friend Jenny is on a Design Team for a fun new blog. It's called Candy Shoppe Designs. It looks like they're going to have tons of fun challenges (yay for motivation!!) and give away lots of really cool prizes! All you scrappy ladies should go check it out! C'mon! You know you want to! And leave a comment...tell them I sent you! It'll give me more points for their monthly drawing! ;)

Ok, well, off to go scrap something...or maybe go watch Big Brother...yeah, that's what I'm going to do...gotta love the DVR! ;)

Scrappy pics

So here are the pictures of the things I did a while ago, that I said I would add forever ago! I'm so terrible about this! I mean, takes 5 minutes to blog! I'm so lazy! :) Anyway, I think both projects turned out really cute! The expecting momma liked the baby book and Dave took the names to my sister in law today! Hope she likes them!

Not a whole lot going on around here. The weather has been nice the last few days and it's supposed to be nice again today. Dave is busy helping his sister move today, so I think I'm going to take Justin for a walk. Well...he'll ride his bike and I'll chase him! :) Maybe we'll go out to lunch too... Not that I need it! We went out to dinner last night for my birthday and I had a yummy dinner (with fries!), ice cream at Applebee's (Justin told the waitress it was my birthday...too cute!) and then we went for ice cream afterwards since I was the only one that got some at dinner....yes, I had ice cream there too! Oops! So much for that diet thing....calories consumed on your birthday don't count, right?!?! ;) Hopefully while Justin is napping I can get some scrappy stuff done! I have a layout that I started the other day and still haven't finished!! It's making me crazy! I hate having unfinished layouts laying around! Happy Saturday!!

Is it Friday yet???

This seems like such a long week! Maybe it's cause I know mom and dad are coming tomorrow...maybe cause the first few days of the week were so gloomy and cold...I dunno. Anyway I look at it, I'm ready for Friday!!

Nothing too exciting going on here. Did a little bit of Easter shopping this week...hope the Easter Bunny left a basket from last year in the my hair chopped :) made a baby shower gift for a friend...cyber shopped for treadmills...pretty boring! I think we're going to go get a new treadmill tomorrow. We've (ok, Dave) has been using ours quite a bit lately and it's been acting really crazy. He blew out the motor about a month ago and it just hasn't been the same since the replacement came. Dave was running this afternoon and the thing shut itself down on him for the last time!! He was running at 7.5 miles an hour and it just stopped (again!). Needless to say, the redneck came out in him and the busted up piece of crap is now in the back of his truck waiting to be taken to the dumpster at the fire station!!

I've been a bad scrapper lately and haven't done any layouts of Justin! I did make some letters for Cole and Calebs' rooms and a baby shower gift for a friend. I think they all turned out cute! I'll have to post them later cause Blogger is giving me a big ol' error message...nice!

So all my scrappy friends, what should I buy? My fantastical friend Carrie got me a gift card for Hobby Lobby cause I've been watching her girls on Thursday nights. As much as I would like a Big Bite, I'm not sure I would use it enough to want to spend the money on it. Same goes for alcohol inks. I think they look cool, but I've never done them before. Whatcha think??

I fibbed!!

I DO have a picture of the waterfall card! DUH! I took one last night to post for my fast scrap on my message board! Anyway, Eryn taught how to make this card last night. The instructions are really confusing and it's much easier when you SEE it done (this is a great video by Dawn). Once you get the hang of it, it's so much fun to make!!

A few LO's

I did these all last weekend when Dave was out of town but have been too lazy to post them. Pathetic, huh? Oh well...better late than never!

This was a sketch from The American Cutie tag and the fireworks tag were from a swap I was in. I just altered them a little to make them exactly what I wanted.
This is a Creative Scrappers sketch (#43).
This is also from Creative Scrappers. Last Sunday they did a one hour LO contest. Fun stuff! Especially since I never do a LO in an hour! :)

Dave is out of town again this weekend so I was scrappy last night too. I made a card and a tag. Nothing too exciting. Well, the card is exciting...I LOVE it! It's called a waterfall card. I haven't taken a picture yet, so maybe I'll get around to posting it NEXT weekend! ;) I also started working on some altered wooden letters for my nephews' rooms. I'm really excited and hope they turn out cute!!

A 3-for-1!!

Well, it's that time of year school. Dave left yesterday afternoon and will be gone till sometime Sunday. That means 2 nights of uninterrupted scrap time (once Justin falls asleep!) So last night I worked on a LO that's good for three different "places". It counts for a challenge on my message board, it's a sketch from Blueprint Sketches, and was used as an "inspiration" at Daily Inspirations on March 18th! Yay! And I even like the way it turned out!!

Park Fun

It was such a beautiful day today! Gotta love 70 degree temps in March! Hopefully this nice-ness will stick around! Anyway, I've been waiting for a nice day to take Justin to Morrow's Meadows to ride his new was perfect! There were so many people out and Justin LOVED riding like a big kid!! He chased Steven around the whole walking trail. He had to pedal so fast to keep up...too cute!! Of course we didn't make it more than one lap...Justin saw the park...but that's ok. Spring has officially started for my little man!

Here's one more...

This is a sketch from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks.

Margaritas are bad!! But oh so good!! :)

Ok, so I went out last night to Puerto Vallarta for Amanda's unconventional bachelorette party. Fun times! Not so fun when I got on the scale this morning! Who knew that one measly little strawberry margarita would make you gain 2 pounds?!? I'm sure the chicken sammich I had for lunch and the taco salad and chips I had for dinner didn't exactly help either! :o Oh well, Amanda is worth it! :) I worked out extra hard to make up for it today!

Not too much new here...we're kinda boring! Justin is getting better with the potty training...thank goodness! I'm finally starting to believe those that promise me that he won't go to kindergarten in a pull-up! :)

Here are a couple scappy things I've done lately. Nothing too impressive, but they're done, right?!?

This LO was a progressive challenge from my message board. We got the "rules" a little at a time and then had to put our LO together. Fun stuff!

This is a sketch from pagemaps. This is a Creative Scrappers sketch....#35 to be exact! This was my own creation...can ya tell?? No wonder why I always use sketches! :)
Here's a sketch from 52 Sketches...52Weeks. I love this blog!

It's been a while again!

Yeah, yeah, I'm a terrible blogger! Not much going on here lately. My computer took a poop a week ago today and my awesome husband bought me a new one!! I'm still trying to figure it out since neither one of us knows Vista. Let's just say it took me 5 minutes to figure out how to print something last week! I'm such a dork!

My message board had an online crop this weekend. I've gotten 3 LO's done for it sofar. The deadline is tomorrow at midnight, so hopefully I'll get another one done. I'll post pictures of them later...when I'm sure I'm all done with all the challenges I'm going to do.

Speaking of message of the girls on my board is giving away some blog candy! YAY Mandie! Go here to check it out!!

And here is a very cool new blog for some daily scrappy inspiration!!

K, I guess I should get going. I've got somewhere to be for dinner tonight and then we're gonna work out. So far so good on this whole weight loss thing! Dave has lost over 30 pounds and I'm the lightest I've been in I don't know how long!! :) Have a Happy Monday!

Carribean Cove

Since last Friday was Justin's birthday, we decided to take him to Carribean Cove Indoor Water Park. It's at the Holiday Inn down in Indy and it was so much fun!! Justin had a blast! He's still not a big fan of water in his face, but I think the more we get him in the water, the better it will be.

He LOVED jumping off the side of the pool and having Daddy catch him!!

And when things got too cold in the regular pool, Justin asked to go to the "warm pool!"

Of course we had to play in the arcade!!

There was a putting green in the area with the hotel's regular pool. Our room was in the balcony just above this and you could access it right through the sliding glass door in our room. Too cool!

We started off the day by going to Olive Garden. Dave told the waiter it was Justin's birthday and asked if they could have a few people come sing to didn't happen...the service was terrible! But NEVER fear....Daddy went to the restaurant in the hotel and they hooked Justin up with a cookie sundae! YUM!

Overall, it was a great time! Justin was still too small for the slides, but hopefully next time we go back he'll be big enough. I tried going down one of them and it was a lot of fun!!

Last one for today...I promise!

See what happens when I actually sit down for a few minutes and work on my blog? You get a picture overload! Oh well, at least Justin's a cute kid! ;) Anyway, I just thought I would post a few scrappy pages that I've done recently. I like the way they turned out.

I'm rockin today!!

We had Justin's 3rd birthday party this past Saturday. Of course it was firetruck themed. On day I'll be able to get away from that! In the mean time, I think I'm going to become a professional firetruck cake maker! If anyone you know is in the market for a firetruck cake, send em this way! ;)

Snow pictures from today

YAY for snow! I'm so excited. We got almost a foot of snow yesterday so of course Justin had to go out again today. We even tried the sled this time...and good thing cause he really needs a bigger one before we venture anywhere other than the yard.

Shame on me....

I've been a bad blogger. I know it only takes a few minutes to put stuff on here, but.... Ok, no excuses, I just suck! This is the first time we got some snow. Not a lot, but enough for Justin to go out and play. He's LOVING it! So much of a change from last year. He really wants to bulid a snowman, but it just hasn't been wet enough yet. Hopefully soon, though!
