Hello Sunday

I wanted to do a driveby post since I have been too busy to share.  We are finishing up the final day of my father's family reunon and I wanted to share a picture with you all.  My schedule has been so jam packed that I haven't taken very many pictures, I'm not sure how I'm going to scrap this event.  The picture that I'm sharing is of the property where we had our family BBQ yesterday.  My cousin that hosted the  BBQ owns 104 acres of land in Smithfield, Virginia.  We started Friday with a meet and greet, the BBQ and a special worship service this afternoon.

Last Day

Happy Friday, more social events this weekend so no time to play!  Today I am sharing a LO that I created as part of our daughter's middle school experience.  The LO uses pictures taken as we were about to leave home and of her running into the door of the school on the last day of school last week.  We have to do better next year with getting out of the house on time!  The sketch used is one of Tiare's from iClassygirl she shared it for us to use during last week's Friday Night Chat challenge over at Scraps of Color and I am also sharing this LO  for June's I Scrapbook, Therefore I Am challenge over at SOC too.  Have a great weekend!

Daddy and Me

This month is flying by and I haven't been able to craft as much I'd like because of everything that we've got going on.  Since Father's Day just passed I wanted to share these two pictures.  The top picture is of my daughter's and her dad while we were out celebrating her  birthday in February.  The other picture is of me and my dad on Father's Day while we were waiting to be seated when we took him to lunch on Sunday.  My daughter and her father has a special bond for which I am thankful so that when it is time for her to choose a mate I hope the standard has been set.  As for me and my father our relationship is special in its on way as I wasn't the only daddy's little girl.  Thank you for your visit, wishing you a beautiful day!

Spring Concert

Yesterday was the last day of school and today starts the summer schedule of activities; DD is headed to Etiquette Camp this morning.  Although I didn't take lots of pictures of DD last school year I'm still not done with scrappin' the 6th grade.  Today I'm sharing a LO that I did for this month's Spreecast Pajama Party hosted by Tiare from iClassygirl.  I wasn't able to get very good pictures because of where I was sitting in the auditorium and the music stands.  I used the DCWV Latte paper pack, some leftover stickers from my stash and the cricut quarter note cartridge to cut the clarinet.  DD has done very well this year in the band and has maintained her 'first chair" status which makes us proud.  Have a great weekend!

Wednesday Wanderings

Welcome to another edition of Wednesday Wanderings!   This is the last week of school for our daughter and I'm doing a happy dance because we made it through 6th grade!  It has been a year of mixed emotions for everybody; so when the notice came home about the 6th grade awards ceremony she promptly informed me that I didn't have to attend.  Of course my feelings were hurt and I didn't know how to take the comment, she followed it with her teachers had been telling them that this is middle school and you had to do something 'award worthy' to be recognized.  In my mind she had been a good student so she should be recognized, I didn't say anything I just decided maybe she just didn't want me to be there front and center camera in hand!  So when I picked her up yesterday she was dancing a gig running to show me her awards, I was so mad that I had let her deprive me of that moment, she received 4 awards and I wasn't there to see it.  She got scolded by her older brother who reminded her that he had to go through and she has to do the same!   My husband on the other hand said to me when did you start listening to a 12 year old?  So lesson learned!

Father's Day

Sunday is Father's Day and no I'm not done with my cards; I need to get some cards in the mail tomorrow so they will get to their destination in time.  So today I'm sharing a card that I made for my husband, our daughter will write a message inside andt give to her dad.  The inspiration for this card came from the Operation Write Home site using their sketch #176 and the MME Moments 6x6 paper pad.  I am happy that I can share this card for June's challenge over at Mema's Crafts; week #25 blog challenge over at Scraps of Color and to the OWH site.  Its very rare that I create a project that can be used in more than one challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Thinking of You

Hello Monday, we're gearing up for a busy week; its the last week of school, doctor's appointment, got a few camp preparations to finish and a few more social events to juggle!  Today I am sharing two cards that I made using leftover paper from the LO that I made for the Pajama Party spreecast.  Nothing fancy but two more cards completed using edge punches and misc. embellishments from my stash!  Take care and have a great week!

Picture Perfect

Wow another LO, can you say I'm doing a happy dance!  Last night I hung out with my Scraps of Color family during the Friday Night Chat.  Our host for the evening was Tiare from iClassygirl, she posted one of her sketches and our challenge was to create a LO and  a card.  The example of her LO that she shared  included a fold so another part of the challenge was to use a fold on our LO.   Last Sunday we attended a scholarship banquet and since all of my mother-in-law's grandchildren were in attendance we took some pictures.   I used one of the pictures that I took on this LO along with some CTMH paper, trim from Recollections and I even pulled out my Cricut and cut the title using the Phrases cartridge.  I was under a tight time constraint last night and did not staple my fan-fold together until this morning.  I was reading a SOC blog post recently where the designer's post was about using staples and I used staples on this LO for the fan fold and the trim!  Another memory documented, keeping it simple and scrappin' my stash!  Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Family Fun

I don't know what happened but I had to repost this post!  I finally finished a LO, today I'm sharing a LO that I started last week. The picture used in this LO were taken during our family visit to the Science Center in Pittsburgh over Spring Break. We had lots of fun visiting with my son. The sketch for this LO came from Tiare over at iClassygirl, stop by her blog if you are looking for some inspiration. She recently started hosting a monthly pajama party where you can sign up to join her as she scrapbooks live via Spreecast. I used Recollections cardstock for the base and the pattern paper came from a kit that I purchased from TM a long time ago, I also used some of the embellishments from the paper pack.

Hello Sunday

I feel like it has been forever since I shared on blog, at least a week.  Today I'm sharing another card using a sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping.  The sketches are just my style!  I used a kraft paper card base, papers from an Echo Park 6x6 paper pad, my cuttlebug for the embossing the flower and bling center are both from Recollections.  I am gearing up for another busy week but I hope to finish up a LO that I started last week.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day and a great week.
