Layouts galore!

Time has sure been flying by! I have so been busy with work, scrapping, and with Ashlyn that I have neglected to post in a few weeks. Today will be full of scrappy stuff!

Before I post my layouts, I want to make a belated shout-out to my first-born sweet girl, Kara, who turned 21 on Friday the 21st! I love you so much and am so proud of the amazing young woman you are becoming! I still find it hard to believe that my baby girl is twenty-one. It is so true- you blink your eyes and your babies become adults. I still marvel at how this happens.

Here are some layouts I have created recently.
I'll start out with some projects created with the Bo Bunny Et Cetera collection that was the DT spotlight product this month at My Scraps & More. You can see the gorgeous projects created by the other team members, here, on the MSAM blog.

this one, Web Cam fun, is one of my challenge layouts for the month:

and finally, I did manage to get to two of the challenges my teammates have posted:

That's it for now. I'll be back soon to post about something fun- there will even be a chance to win a great prize. Stay tuned!
Have a beautiful day!

catching up...

Time is flying by and it's been busy around here. About 10 days ago, Ashlyn fell off of Skylar's bed and fractured her left elbow. Just a freak thing as Skye's bed is a standard height and all Ashlyn was doing was reaching for something on the floor. Had she fallen down the stairs, she probably wouldn't have hurt herself at all. So now she is in a half-cast/ace bandage wrap and sling for the next 6-8 weeks. Oh joy. She's been a trooper though- it's painful and swollen and she has been handling it remarkably well.

This past Saturdaywe went out to Greenbluff, which is basically a bunch of local farms. Emily wasn't working until late, I was off, and the weather was perfect for some outdoor fun. We haven't been for a few years, so it was nice to go again. We did not pick any apples this year, but we did visit the pumpkin patch. We also pet some animals and visited several different farms.

As for scrapping, I have been pretty busy. I created some baby projects for Kara's friend Kristen, who is having a baby in mid-December. It was a big project that took many, many hours to complete. I will share this project sometime this week.

Lastly, My Scraps & More is doing a month-long sketch challenge. Each weekday a DT member is posting a sketch along with a challenge. I have hosted two so far; Oct. 4th:

and 10/10:

I have only had a chance to get to one of the sketches so far, and here is my layout for that:

I am hoping to get to some more soon. Stop on by MSAM to join in on the fun!

Take care!
