Catching Up--BIG time.

I honestly do not know where the time goes. Of course there is a lot of driving kids back and forth to school, helping with homework, studying for tests, cooking dinners, trying to get little people to get a good night of sleep.

Then there is watching movies, bouncing in the bouncer, cleaning, more cleaning.

Still, if it is already the MIDDLE of January, we are in for one lightning fast year. And this little stinker called me Mom all day. Not Momma or Mommy, but "Hey Mom..."
Sigh. Oh well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. He is going to be 4 next month after all. Oh, for anyone curious about these painted frames or the polaroids with text I used in my Christmas post, I downloaded both for free from the fabulous Coffeeshop Blog. The BW action I ran on these photos is from the same site.
Ok....in the downtime, I have gotten lots done. Some I can't share yet (some new projects with new Elle's Studio goodies!!!!!!). So here is what I can share:
This one with American Crafts Love Collection:
That big red flower is an American Crafts Details and I entered this into their weekly challenge and I was one of the winners on the American Crafts blog.
This month the Upsy Daisy Design Team focused on their Avalanche line. It is a very winter line filled with snowflakes and winter sports phrases. Here in the Southwest, we don't get a lot of either. So I got creative ;) This first one is actually pictures from over the summer. When it gets unbearably hot, when it is 115 for weeks on end, when it is well over 100 even in the dark of the night, sometimes we stop off at the local skating rink. It just feels so good to be cold for a little while:
The great thing about this line is the B sides are incredibly versatile. The colors are patterns have a cool masculine feel so I thought it was perfect for a layout about my guys:
And this one was made with a bunch of Kreaxions punches and a big butterfly die;
The punches I used are on the Just Imagine Crafts blog today.
I did this one as a scraplift of layout by Carrie Ferrier for a challenge on For the Luv of Art.
And I did this one for a challenge at 3 Scrappy Boys to scrap your One Little Word:
And I couldnt have been more thrilled when Heidi at October Afternoon noticed it at 2peas and posted it on the OA facebook page!
And on that note it is time to call it a day. Have a great night and wonderful rest of your weekend!
