Whew! Well I am back full force and have some scrappy goodness for your eyes to feast on! I started out with a great sketch from The Scrappiest, it is the last sketch of May Sketch #66 it was just what I needed to get the juices flowing! I used the color scheme based on Design Dollies for their Final Color Challenge of May! Last Paper Secrets latest challenges offer four different ways to win I used their Supply Challenge-Chipboard/Grungeboard (alphas).

MIA, Make-over, Mega Picture Overload

Not making any excuses but there has been a hault to the Scrapping at the casa this last hubby best friends father passes and with them coming in town, the emotional drainage that surrounds a death and the domino effect of thought of losing your father, then to losing a parent in general, and of course then to your kids you leave behind lets just say I had a moment...a 7 day moment...but I woke today determined to scrap! Though i had a million things to do I have yet to get my hands on anything I have cleared my agenda am making sandwiches for dinner and scrapping the night away!

I tend to let go of "the plan" and get crazy with impulse during and following these "moments" we had ice cream for lunch...ran around with underwear on our heads...took naps at the park(mommy slept with her eyes open ), drew permanent marker mustaches and went to walmart. It is all about living in the moment if you didn't notice...Then I decided to take a deep breath...cut 10 inches off my hair and go blond well..blond-ish...hows that for impulse? 
(not a great picture but shows color/legnth)
-it is really a lot lighter than the pics
 So as Spring/Summer rules state -must spend all hours possible in water...we the good little rule followers we are obeyed with flying colors! While out at Uncle Donnie and Sherry's Moms house the boys got in the sprinklers with Aiden!

 Back here, Ava came for her weekly stay and Aunt Amber forgot her bathing suit so..not wanting upset the Rule makers of Summer we slapped some undies and a t-shirt on her and headed outside!
Being the sweet little angel she is, Ava decided to teach Edward a lesson in Manners
Ladies First!!!!!
Noah had takin up relaxing on the slide so Edward decided to launch an attack to re-gain control of the slide.
Operation Tickle was in full effect!!
While I will agree now, it does look as though they are strangling each other..I assure you screaming "tickle tickle tickle" and constant laughing didn't worry me one bit at the time!
Mommy decided to launch an attack of her own...the kind kids love! Operation Raining Water! They made their stand with a "united" front
It didn't take long for them to realize Evil Empress Mommy was much stronger than anticipated! Empress called a 3 second cease fire to which they quickly dispersed leaving"every man for themselves"
Before they could get themselves together Operation Raining Water was back on in full force...they scrambled to escape!
In the end only Edward was able to escape the Evil Empress Mommy! Noah and Ava quickly thew in the towel (or in this case asked for one) and pledged their undying alledgance and love to ME MUWAHHAAA!

Not making any promises but tomorrow there should be some scrappy goodness posted! I am off to get started!

One Look

When I saw Creative Prompts 4 U latest challenge #15 Color me Brightly I knew it was perfect for those scraps of Lime Rickey I had along with the rest of the die cuts and stickers! I have been waiting to use The Scrapiest second sketch for May Sketch #64 as I loved the cute design!! Paired these two together and I have a bright and fun layout that I am loving!

Here is my layout!
"One Look..Can say so much"
This is Edwards "look" it is his signature, he uses it all the time and can make it mean whatever he wants! I love this look so much and was SO glad to finally capture it!!
As always I hope you enjoyed it!

A trip to the pond and backyard pool fun!

Yesterday, Ava came to visit and we took a journey to a cemetery up the street that has the most beautiful duck pond and tree's around! I love it there, the geese and ducks have no fear and walk right up to you...unfortunately Ava did not like them to much so we didn't get to play with them as usual but the kids didn't mind climbing in the old tree! We walked around the pond exploring the kids had the best time it was so fun to of those "glad to be a mom" moments.
Today I strained every muscle in my mouth and then some I didn't know I had blowing up the kids new pool since last year we broke the pump and who wants to spend $20 on a pump for one time? The boys had such a blast splashin and laying back in the cool water! It was so hot I had to turn the water hose on mist and have it continually spray them..which of course they LOVED!

Melts my heart...Like Cotton Candy

This week, I had myself a fight...a fight over paper, ribbons, trims and embellies. I fell in LOVE with the color scheme for Candy Shoppe Designs Challenge called Cotton Candy. I immediately pulled what I wanted to use and found my self with WAYYYY to much that I was stumped. I decided to sit down again with everything and weed out what I didn't really want to use and the problem was I wanted it what did I do? I used it all :) How's that for compromise! Candy Shoppe is being sponsered by Magpie Club with a YUMMY Kit!!

Here is my layout
"Melt's my heart...Like Cotton Candy"
This picture was taken at my sister Amber's Wedding November 2006. I was a blond and had blue eyes..yeah I know...Noah was a binky baby charming the socks off of everyone that glanced in his direction.
Fussy cutting and layering...lots of fun!
This layered flower was cut from 3 identical ones layered, I attempted to hand sew my crinkle paper and it sooo didn't work! I just LOVE those feathers!
Close up of layering trim
I used shimmerz paint for the blue, tattered angels and pearl stickles for the pink, mist and stickles for the black flower. Added the cute center and glued some hearts and tiny flower for that extra something :)
Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it!!!
