Good morning, all! I have been up since 4am not by choice. lol My son Caleb was ready for his feeding then my daughter decide to get up half hour later. She jsut fell asleep around 6 am for short nap. lol So I know I will be crashing tonight. :) In previous post, ccomrie23 --Charlies was my partner for that swap. I'm trying to find my pictures of stuffs I made for her but can't find it in my picture files. I really made some cute stuffs. Anyway, I'm hoping to get into my scrap room later today to finish up some projects, upload pictures to Walmart, and do some organizing some stuffs around to make it easier for me to scrap. For past two days, I sorted my buttons into colors. I tend to scrap by color. I orginally have them all in this tin container but it wasn't working for me as it take me too long to find what I want for layouts. With having two kids, time is not on my side. lol Currently, I'm saving up some money to purchase Micheal cubes to store all of my embellishments together except ribbbons by colors. Ribbons will be in separte cubes as I have to many of them. I will post pictures as each month go by. Thanks for reading!

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day everyone! We just stay home and enjoy each other. I was planning to scrap but it seems that I have lost my scrappin mojo this week. lol Anyway, I'm trying to get back into my routine with my new little guy. What a difference he is from my first daughter! I'm loving it every minute. Today he is 4 weeks old. I can't believe it. Where did the time go? It just seem yesterday I had him. lol
I did this layout for How much is too much? challenge 143:
Create a layout using:
1 photo
7 blue things (can be anything, as long as it is blue)
4 circles
5 pieces of chipboard or grungeboard
( ) I didn't get a chance to enter it. I was too late. lol Oh, well I'm not really loving this for some reason. It stills need something but not sure what. I may change my journal to computer print. I just not loving my handwriting. lol I did use my cricut to cut out chipboard for my title placement and journal space. I had fun using this challenge to move out of my comfort zone. Thanks for looking.
