Clean up before you play

Last night, I took on Tammy's (The Scrap Room) challenge to clean up our scrap spaces. I did a deep cleaning of my little corner in our Purple Playroom. The contents still need reorganizing, but I'm happy it's clean.

Even inspired me enough to work on this Bonus Ad Challenge Layout at WT using an old TSR kit.

I'm thinking ya'll are shocked I'm updating so much

but I just HAD to share this pic of baby C. taken while we were out for our late afternoon walk.

Another layout & my pretty daylily

One SYM sketch challenge done! Finished this FUN layout last night using a Personal Scrapper kit that has been sitting in my stash WAY too long:

And this bloomed yesterday:

As if I was going to run out of inspiration this month...

Tonight I found that Scrapping Your Memories is hosting a Sketch-A-Day contest for the entire summer !!!!

And I had almost forgotten about the online bash at Treasures To Scrap:

If anyone else knows of some great challenges please let me know. I'm on a serious mission to get pages in albums and see the supplies dwindle.

as promised....layout from last night

Used a sketch from Tiare at
Classy Coordinates and a kit in my stash from Leaving-Memories.

I'd love to work on another challenge tonight, but maybe I'll just organize my pictures for the 12 Layout Challenge at the online crop at The Scrap Room this weekend. I told you I was going to be a maniac in June.

8 months old already !!

This little guy is 8 months old today!! Time really does fly. And NO, I do not allow little ones to have balloons in their face. The thought of one popping and covering a windpipe scares me to death. But he discovered the string, so I let him hold onto it long enough to figure out the balloon moves if you pull the string a certain way. It's amazing to watch his mind work as he makes all these fabulous discoveries !!

I did get another layout finished tonight. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

June Scapping Mania

  • I have a couple of gift projects that I'm late on finishing.

  • I haven't finished many pages for my own albums during 2006.

  • The scrap supply stash that has accumlated here now qualifies as obscene.

  • I need to make room for more stuff since I'm seriously considering signing up to be a CTMH consultant in the next couple of weeks.

  • In my hopes to get lots of projects finished this month and reduce some of the obscene stash that has accumulated, I've signed up for several challenges. There's the Ads are Awesome Challenge, the Get It Out of the Box Challenge and Tiare's Sketch Challenges at Willow Traders. Also I'm going to participate in the Squash The Stash Challenge at Good To The Last Crop AND the How Many contest at Scrappin' With Grace.

    Here's a layout I did last night....inspiration from the Ad Challenge.

    I also made 2 birthday cards, but no peeks on those....since the gals they're for might check my blog before their birthdays. *wink*

    It's all about the education

    Isn't it ironic ?????

    that the day my stepson graduates high school,

    A starts preschool.

    The graduation ceremony was very nice, and how could you not help but be proud of such an accomplishment !!! And as excited as C. is to have this chapter behind him, A. is ecstatic about starting. When I picked her up this afternoon, in typical A. fashion, dramatically exclaimed, "Momma, I had SOOOO much fun !!!!" What's scary is that it seems like yesterday that C. was starting kindergarten. I know that A.'s Class of 2020 and little C.'s Class of 2024 sound like a long way off, but we've already proved it goes by way too fast.
