Has it really been this long?

Has life gotten so much in the way that I've forgotten about reflecting? Indeed it has! But now we are on summer vacation! Woohoo! Hopefully I'll be posting more. This is crazy. The entire last year has just FLEWN by!

It's a bizarre, drizzley, overcast day here in Los Gatos. Unusual for June. But perfect for running! Now, if Denyelle would wake up, we could get going! Jack's got a bit of a cough this morning, and Charli is still asleep. Apparently the last week of school wore them out! Bring on the sleeping in!

I'm pumped to go to a family gathering today. I need some family time!

Vicki's Birthday Present

Vicki (my sis) asked for some scrap pages to hang on her wall. I DORKED and only took a pic of ONE of the three. I created two on foam core and one on cardboard. This one is on black foam core. I LOVE it, and Vicki did, too! Enjoy!

I scrapped!

Ok, I actually did this a few weeks ago, but never posted. Janna never checks my blog, so I think it's pretty safe to assume she won't see this! This is the first page I did for her and David's wedding album. I did double-duty and did it for a scraplift challenge over at ScrapLove, too. It felt soooo good to create!

Ok, Seriously...

How on earth did I think I could do 365 with a broken camera and no time to scrap??? This project does not seem to be working out for me, but I can still try. We'll see. Life is SUPER busy!I have been trying to save Spanish Instruction at Jack's school, I have been helping DH a it with Pacific Ice, Jack is taking ice skating lessons, DH's commercial debuted yesterday, Jack's school had a Jogathon Friday, and, most importantly, Charli turned five this week! Today we're having a family birthday party for her. Since we had a commercial debut party last night, we haven't even begun prepping for it. It will be casual BBQ style, so that is fine.

I miss scrapping. I miss it terribly. It's driving me CRAZY that I am too busy to scrap. I might need to start staying up some late nights so I can scrap for my own sanity. I just received a GORGEOUS prize package from DreamGirls!!!! Wow! Thank you! I can't wait to play with it. Oh! And I received Janna's wedding photos!!! Woohoooo! Can't WAIT to play with those! I have dug into the stuff I was saving for that project... just stole a bunch of solid colored cardstock... stuff that's easy to replace. I need to get on that!

Alight. The kids and I are having cookies for breakfast. I think we better have a little protein and fruit, too, so we don't have a sugar low in an hour! LOL! Ciao for now!

More on 365...

Ok. I know I already talked about Project 365 in my last post, but here it is again. For those of you who don't know, Project 365 is about documenting a year in your life. So I plan to take a photo every day, and do weekly pages compiling them together. I had heard about it, but didn't pay much attention. I figured it was just another 1-a-day challenges. And it is, to a point. But Becky Higgin's forgiving, flexible attitude made me realize I can participate in any capacity I choose. If I miss a day taking photos, no biggie. I can journal about it. Or not. Totally up to me. Kinda took the stress off, and I got all excited about it. The more I thought about it, the more I was totally convinced. I was sucked right in... hook, line, and sinker.

On another note, today are Little League tryouts. Didn't realize Jack had to try out. I'm sure he'll be going into Coach Pitch, which is the next level for him. Jeff plans to coach, too. Should be a fun season! I'm excited to see how today goes, and I'm just a little nervous for Jack, because he tends to get nervous in these situations. Regardless, the dude is playing baseball this spring for sure. Woohoo!

Project 365

Ok, so I'm late. But I want to play! I've decided I want to do Project 365. Unfortunately, I missed a few pics for my first week of January. But that's ok. I can journal about those days, and at least I have 7 pics for the week. I'm so excited! I think I'm really going to enjoy this project! I plan to have my first layout up soon.... I will keep them simple so I can just get them done. Plus... they need to be simple to fit all the pics! Cheers to a fabulous 2009!!!

The Wrinkley Thing

I just noticed that the last three layouts I posted have crumpled, wrinkled paper backgrounds. And I like the wrinkled look. But I think I've been overdoing it. I think next time I need to iron the paper back out after I crinkle-and-ink or wrinkle-and-sand. I so need to be scrapping more so I can find my groove again!

Magic of Christmas

I just love the magic of Christmas. The trees. The lights. The scents. The music. Santa. I love it all. This was my favorite photo from Christmas 2008. Unfortunately, I kinda ruined it by overdoing the layout! LOL! I think I'll do a second one and keep it simple!
