Celebrating National Scrapbooking Week

I've often said that I never in my life thought I could ever find a hobby that would rival my dh's golf spending. Then I found scrapbooking. I met Carl the second week of April....right in the midst of the Masters Golf Tournament. I learned quickly that his world STOPPED for the Masters. At least until we had kids. Now he tries to celebrate Masters week yet balance his paternal responsibilities. And too funny, but that's how I now feel about National Scrapbooking Week! Like it should be some kind of sacred holiday.

I will be celebrating this week by going to the CK Convention on Friday. Then coming home and cybercropping with some online friends at Sunny's new site: Scrap Treasures. There will be games and challenges and PRIZES all weekend!! If you don't have a place to celebrate NSD, please join us at Scrap Treasures. And, of course, I'll be balancing my scrapping with making sure the kids stay clean, fed, and happy. (They don't need to eat that often, do they?)

I should just admit I'll never catch up! LOL

Life is ALWAYS crazy it seems. Carl's shoulder surgery ended up being more intensive than they thought so his recovery time is now 6 weeks instead of 1 week. It's tough doing the whole get ready-get home-dinner-cleanup-playtime-bathtime-bedtime thing without his help! But his left arm is supposed to be immobilized for another 5 weeks. It's times like these I wonder how the single moms do it all. We'll make it, but it has definitely hindered catching up on other post-tax-season things.

I had so much fun at the SOS Spring Fling Crop! I was able to get a few layouts done which is always a good thing! My favorite creation was the Altered Planner Challenge. I made this to slip in the plastic cover of my 3-ring binder I have to keep up with the class assignments.

And last night, I finished this LO combining one of Ingrid's sketch challenges and Gina's Scrapping with the Stars Challenge at Willow Traders.

Happy Easter!!!

We're not letting mom's crazy work schedule interfere with our Easter fun. Addison is really enjoying it. When I got home from work Thursday night, I asked her about the egg hunt and party they had at her school. "I had so much fun Mom! Hey Mom, did you have a Easter party at work today?" When I told her no, she told me "Tomorrow to go to work and tell them they need an Easter party!" LOL We colored our eggs in shorts and short-sleeves, then a few days later went to the Egg Hunt with winter coats on! Hard to believe it's turned so cold just in time for Easter. Here are a few pics of the festivities. Clark loved the Easter bunny, and he really did a good job hunting for eggs.
