Blogger is Back!

Ok, I could blame my long absence on blogger. Truth is, life was a bit busy this past week and it wasn't until last night that I had both the energy and the time to try and blog. And that happened to be the same time that Blogger was doing site maintenance. Go figure. Oh, well, let's just keep blaming Blogger ;)

So I do have tons to share. For Mother's Day I got an entire afternoon to scrap--best present ever ;) The kids went from playing outside, to crafting in the office with me, to nap/quiet time without too much struggle and so we all had a nice day. Then we all went to Cafe Rio so I could get my favorite big salad. AND I actually have a picture of the three of us:
And Little Miss took a few pictures too. Ok, so the little guy is completely cut out but at least she got one of Scott and I lol:
OK, so on to the scrapping. It also happened to be National Scrapbook Day last weekend so there were lots of crops and activities going on. I used the remaining parts of my Scrapbook Circle May and Anniversary kits to complete some challenges at 2peas. Here was my take on a sketch challenge (with the Anniversary kit):
Here was a folded paper challenge (with the May kit Grandma's Attic). It has been SO long since I did an 8.5x11 page and I'd forgotten how fun they can be.
So I had to do another *lol* (with the Anniversary kit) for a scraplift challenge (this is a scraplift of a layout by Jen Gallacher):
And finally a Create Your Own Embellishment with Bits and Pieces Challenge.
The Anniversary kit was perfect for this challenge because it came with the fun Ephemera, corrugated pieces and Lily Bee stickers. I added some of the digital printable and sewed everything on top of the Jillibean Corrugated frames packaging:
I have more to share, but I think I will save what's left from that weekend for another post.
But before I go, I wanted to let you know that Scrapbook Circle is continuing the anniversary month with challenges and giveaways. In fact today they are giving away a $20 GC to Shey B.'s site (maker of those gorgeous camera straps). Head over HERE for your chance to win!
