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!

Hurricane Irene

So I got an unexpected day off today : ) We've had a tropical storm warning all day with some rain and wind. I was somewhat disappointed we missed school, since we have to make it up, but have truly enjoyed spending the day with my little ones. I even got an hour nap in!!

We were able to get up to CVS to get some photos developed so Brooke and I can scrapbook tonight. It is SO fun watching my little girl create. I will be working on some layouts for Bella Blvd. I am trying out for their design team. Not sure I will make it but it's worth a try since they are one of my favorite scrapbook manufacturers!

Here are some previous layouts I made with some/all/most of their products:

Hello Again

So my "before" New Year's resolution is to keep up with my blog more. Life can get a bit overwhelming at these past 7 days...but no more excuses. Brooke starts kindergarten tomorrow. UGH! Where does the time go? I am so sad to see her grow up so fast but so excited about her new adventure. Luckily, she will be at school with me and my break will be during her lunch time.

I always get a bit nervous about starting another year but I'm often reminded from family and friends that it will all be ok! I don't know what I would do without them.

I have been scrapping ALOT this summer. I am NO procrastinator so I have finished scrapping all my Michigan pics from our vacation in June/July. Brooke has also started scrapping with me. It makes me smile watching her create her own pages.

Well, back to school work tonight. Here are a few pages to share!

Enjoying time with the Roses in Oak Island, NC!

My cool dude : )

Enjoying the Flowertown Festival!
