I have fallen off the scrappy bandwagon. How I miss it and want to jump back on board! I was able to finish up a layout this week (in the whole half hour I had, haha!). But other than that it has been a couple weeks. :-( I think National Scrapbook weekend was when I scrapped last. The kids are demanding more and we have been gone lots. Hopefully this summer I will be able to find more time. Maybe bribe the kids with a trip to the park if they give me some scrappy time without fighting and tons of interruptions.
One of this months challenges at Birds of a Feather is to scraplift a layout in the gallery. I chose this beautiful layout by my super talented friend Karen.
And this is my take on it:
This past weekend we went camping. YAY! Oh, how I have missed camping! I really wish I could buck up and learn how to drive the trailer so that we could do it more often. Its the whole backing thing that has me scared. Anyhow....we were able to get our favorite spot. It seems people go out earlier and earlier every year to snag there spots. I started getting anxious seeing all the trucks and trailers headed through town.
Maddy sitting with her Grandma. Stealing her lemonade. Poor Grandma couldn't keep a bottle of ice tea or lemonade without the kids trying to take sips off it. I have ice tea too, but Grandma's is better! :-) Isn't that true though? Its always better if it comes from a Grandma!
I am still couponing. I get giddy with excitement when I can go into a store and walk out with freebies (the Colgate toothpaste and some of the sodas) or cheap cheap items like boxes of cereal for 75 cents. I have spent a lot of time in this new hobby and am just now learning how to take less time saving money.
Thanks for stopping by!
