12 Days of Christmas

Happy Holidays! The Countdown to Christmas has started! Starting Monday, December 5, Got Sketch will bring you 12 days of sketch-based Christmas projects. You can check in out at Got Sketch!

I have already finished one project which I am super excited about based on one of Val's sketches. I can't wait to get started on the next one! Link

I can't believe tomorrow is December 1st! But it doesn't come before celebrating my 36th birthday today. I am reminded every day of how blessed I am to have such a wonderful family and group of friends!

The Greenman clan will be busy as ever this December. I started my December Daily album to record every step! I have a lot of scrapping to do and I am truly enjoying working with Valerie Salmon and the whole Gotsketch Masters team!! You can check out my sketch revisted layout here: And you can see the new graphic banner of me that Val created!

I'd have to say the highlight of my month was Michigan's win over Ohio State and this picture I got of my beautiful and handsome family:

My mom was here last week and we enjoyed a week of baking cookies, decorating the house, and visiting Scirocco everyday on the farm. He has become a big part of our family and I love watching Brooke learn to trust him more and more each day. She wouldn't even stand 10 ft in front of him and now she picks up his hooves to clean out his feet!

I wish all my friends and family a blessed holiday season! May Santa be good to you : )

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

We're back!

What a whirlwind adventure Adam and I had on our overseas cruise. The sights were AMAZING and I loved spending time with Adam. The trip back wasn't as wonderful but hey, we made it! It only took 43+ hours!

This Monday my horse will be coming down to South Carolina from Michigan. I have been waiting for this day for a long time. I can't wait to get back to that part of my life again...riding! What a blessing.

My mom will be here for Thanksgiving and I can't wait to decorate the house for Christmas and make Christmas cookies. This is my favorite time of year.

I will post pictures from our trip this weekend. I still have ALOT of catching up to do!

OMG I am SO excited

I can't believe it. Valerie Salmon asked me to join the gotsketch team. She has always been one of the most influential people to me in the scrapbook industry and I have taken ALL of her gotsketch classes. I am beyond excited. You can check out the team here: TEAM!

Here are some pages I created in her class:
The best part of Skytop Orchard: apple cider donuts and apple slushies!
Ty playing the the leaf pile in the front yard. He thought it was THE best!

Well, I'm off to tending to my little boy. He is still sick and needs some more mommy time!

More Layouts!

Here are some more layouts I've created recently.

Here is one of us on the first Saturday of Michigan football this year. We aren't excited at all! LOL! Ty still fits in his jersey and Adam's parents bought us a new flag for outdoors. The other flag had holes in it...such true fans : ) So far so good for Michigan. Hope they can keep it up!
Here is a layout from Skytop Orchard. We went on a weekend trip last weekend and stayed with our friends Josh and Sarah. It was warm all week but cooled off for the weekend. When we arrived in the mountains it was only 52 degrees, hence the jackets, gloves, and hats! We had a blast! We actually got to pick apples off the trees this year. We still enjoyed apple cider doughnuts and apple slushies. They had a new doughnut: pumpkin=yummy! We bought tons of apples and cider and made my mom's apple crisp the night we got home. This is ALWAYS a favorite yearly trip of mine. We also spent the night walking around downtown Greenville. It's gorgeous there!

Here is a picture of Brooke on her first day of kindergarten. Daddy took her to school!
Here are some pics from Ty's 2nd birthday. After dinner and cake we headed down to the neighborhood pool for a swim! We were joined by the Beck's, Uncle Sean, Grammy and Papa.
Brooke is becoming quite the artist. Here is a picture of her chalkgirl in the garage!
And here is my beautiful little girl. She is growing up WAY too fast!
Well, let's hope the Lions, Tigers, and Wolverines can keep the good luck running : ) It certainly makes for a happier household, or at least that's what daddy tells us!

Here are a few new layouts I've completed in the past couple of weeks! Thought I would share.

Ty was being SO funny at Brooke's soccer game. He was making the funniest faces for Gaga!

And here is Ty again with his favorite person in the WHOLE world....Papa!

Monday we celebrated Lydia's 5th birthday. Here are a couple pics from the party. Brooke is with her friend Kayleigh!

Next week I should have some WONDERFUL pictures and layouts from our trip to the apple orchard in the NC mountains. It's become an annual tradition to go and always proves to be a ton of fun. Although the best part are the apple cider donuts and apple cider slushies!!

Fall is in the Air!

Wow...fall has arrived! Well, at least for a couple days. The weather changes SO much down here. Anyhow, we had the air off and the windows open all weekend. It was so nice to air out the house from the hot summer. Unfortunately, it comes with pollen and stuffy noses. Ty and Brooke both are feeling pretty stuffy : (

Brooke had another great soccer game! She is really starting to build her confidence and get in there with the boys! Here is a picture of her scoring her first goal!

Of course, football started and Michigan is off to a great start. Let's hope they can keep it up : ) Here is a picture I took a couple weekends ago. I'm not sure who is more excited for football, Ty or Daddy!

Football season means LOTS of time with our friends and family. We had a wonderful time at the Beck's this past Saturday. It was so nice outside, they put up a sheet in the back yard with the projector to watch the game.

I can't believe it is already September 19th. Time is flying. I am getting excited, and nervous, for October. So many trips planned such as the apple orchard, Adam's annual golf outing with the boys, and our big trip over sea. It is also time for Grammy Marsha to visit and the kids to get dressed up for Halloween. It is going to be another busy month but I wouldn't change it for the world!

Bella Blvd.

Well, I just found out I didn't make the Bella Blvd. design team : ( I'm a little down but still proud of myself for trying. And I got some great layouts and altered projects finished so that's a bonus as well. Anyhow, I thought I would share what I created using their products:

My Little Man:

Brooke and her cat, Winston. Along with the picture she drew of him!

Ty and his starfish:
Our crazy family : )
And for my altered projects:

An altered jumbo clothes pin:
A picture frame for Ty's 2nd birthday:
An altered can for Bailey's treats:Maybe next time : )

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Wow, I'm on a roll with blogging. So proud of myself : ) Now, if I could just teach my mom how to get to my blog???

Brooke has been in school 14 days and is already writing sentences, reading several sight words, and counting by 10's. We are SO blessed that she got Mrs. Ferson as her teacher along with Mrs. Mann. WE WERE ALSO VERY BLESSED THAT HER PAPA WORKED WITH HER EVERY DAY HE WATCHED HER!! She is also getting more creative than ever which is always wonderful for a creative mommy to see. I love snatching her creations from her to use on scrapbook pages. Here are a few I've created in the past with her pictures. I can't wait to collect more to scrapbook!!

Her picture of a fairy:

Picture and journaling from her Mother's Day card to me:
Her pic of me and her!
Her princess picture:
Her family pic of me, daddy, Ty and herself:
Her first snowman pic:
One of her first kitty pics:
Her handprint from preschool:

It's so much nicer to put her pictures on scrapbook pages instead of hidden away in a dark box!

Fall and Football

Ok, so its' not officially fall yet but with football starting tomorrow I'm celebrating early : ) I got out all the fall decorations (including our huge Michigan plate) and plan on making apple crisp tomorrow. I know...I'm crazy...but fall IS my favorite season!! The kids have some GREAT Michigan apparel for this season so I can't wait to get my camera out. I may need to shop for some cute fall clothes for our traditional apple picking trip though. Wonder what Adam will think of that.

Anyhow, here are some layouts and pics to get you in the fall football mood:

This is one of my favorites pics from the apple orchard. There was a sign stating: DO NOT RIDE IN THE WAGONS but that didn't stop Papa. Brooke LOVED it : )

Here is Ty's first season as a football fan:
And the layout I made with the pic:
My little girl at 2 on our trip to the orchard. I LOVED this dress. In fact, I gave it to my mom and she has it on one of her bears in her house!
The same year, when she was 2, picking apples.
Happy fall y'all : )

Monday : (

Well, it's definitely been a Monday! Except I was SO excited when I got home to see a box filled with new scrapbook goodies for the fall. I received my Jillibean and My Mind's Eye papers : )

We already have our fall trip to the mountains planned. We probably won't see much color change this year but hope to be able to pick apples from the trees. In years past, the apples have been gone off the trees before we arrive : ( I can taste those yummy apple cider donuts now!! I marked the day on the calendar so Brooke started the countdown!!

I had a great weekend with my family and finished everything I needed for applying as a design team member for Bella Blvd. Wish me luck! I applied for layouts and altered albums. I will find out later this month.

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful, restful week! Sure do miss all my family up north.

Here is a picture of Brooke and daddy from her first day! ENJOY!
