New Sketch at Inspired to Scrap

I just posted a new layout and sketch based on that layout over at Inspired to Scrap!  Check it out!  I would love see your layouts if you choose to create one using my sketch!

Another busy week ahead...

I think I am officially in a birthday coma!  Is there anyone else out there that has their kiddo's birthdays along with a niece's and 2 great family friends all within 4 weeks of one another???  Oh my goodness.  It's been a whirlwind, and I am getting ready to plan another one.  Graedon's Super Mario Brothers birthday bash is this coming Saturday, and I am still recouperating from my niece's party from over the weekend.  I feel so horrible that I haven't even shared about Gabe's big Toy Story party either.  (Note to self-Post about Gabe's birthday, stat!)

To top all of that off, we are planning another Disney World vacation, and there is so much to do before we leave!  To say I am a bit overwhelmed is an understatement!

Inspired to Scrap

The class schedule for Inspired to Scrap has been posted, and you will want to head over as quickly as possible to check it out!  Stacey has some amazing classes lined up, and you don't want to miss out!  You can check out the whole line-up at

August 27th-29th Weekend Warriors-Inspired by Borders

The first Weekend Warriors class will be starting in one week, and it will be focusing on using borders in new and inspiring ways on your layouts!

*Picture and ontent below is credited to Stacey Lokovic, creator of Inspired to Scrap.

Our first class is a member inspired class based on a couple of requests. It is a weekend class - August 27-29 and it's called "Weekend Warriors- Inspired by Borders." We are focusing on border strips and punches. Anyone have those sitting around?? Yeah, I thought so...most of us probably have some. :) We'll be focusing on new ways to use those punches and pre-cut strips. As a BONUS, we are including a really cool technique called "patterned paper transfers" using products you probably already have. You will receive daily instructions, ideas, tips and samples within the setting of a private message board.

* For those of you unavailable that weekend, you can still purchase the class (and any of the classes!) and you will receive the class content in a document after the class is over. You'll miss out on the fun of chatting and sharing during the class, but you can still learn some techniques and gain some inspiration.

I hope you decide to join us at Inspired to Scrap for a class, and stick around to share some of your own inspiration with the rest of us!

7 Years and 3 Hours Ago...

Gabriel Eric came into my world and made me a mommy for the first time!  He created my role for me; my current employment-to be the best mommy that I can be.  Yes, there are days that I should be fired, but my boys keep me around.  :-)

Ah, I am having such a bittersweet day.  I have loved every minute of celebrating my now 7-year old son, but he starts school again tomorrow, and he will be a 1st grader!!  Where does the time go?  I feel that my job as his full-time mommy has just gotten pushed to part-time status and there is nothing that I can do to stop it.  He will officially be at school for more hours during the day than he will be at home with me, and I don't think it is bothering him one bit.  I am glad that it is not.  If it were bothering him, I would be an even more sniffling, blubbering fool.  I've been good, and have only broken down twice in the last 24 hours, but I can tear up just thinking about how much I am going to miss that boy of mine!  7 years flew by too fast.  I blinked, and he is walking the hallways by himself, not holding my hand anymore, and just being so independent. 

I love you Gabriel Eric, and I have such high hopes and dreams for you, but the most important things that I want for you is to be happy and to know how much you have changed my life for the better.  There are no words to describe the love I feel for you!  You will always be the one who made me a mommy!

It's been too long

Has it really been over a month since I last posted?!?!  Wow!!  I knew it had been awhile, but no idea it had been this long.  I can't say that things haven't been busy around here though, but I am sad that the summer is quickly fading!  I am trying to hold on to as much as I can.

In other news....

My Gabe is turning 7 in 13 days!!  How is that possible?!?!?
I am not ready for this growing up thing anymore. 
Can I stomp my foot and say that I am not going to participate in
growing older (my kids included?)
Can you tell we're throwing a Toy Story party?
And what about this?
Seriously, first you take away my summer and you make my kids grow older, but now you want them to go to school? 
I don't like where this is going. 

Oh, how I have missed my blog.
