I'm Back!!

So I finally have my computer together (thanks Loney) and the internet is working.  Now just trying to play catch up with everyone.  So many digital freebies to check out, blogs to read, and email to go through as well.  Probably won't get to everything, but at least I'm back and ready to catch up.

I'm hoping to get to creating more pages soon.  Next week I'm going to be at Mom's house with the kids to help her get things ready for the wedding on Saturday.  Loney starts work too, so hopefully it will help with the gas situation until he get's his first paycheck.  I'm gonna miss my bed, but it will be waiting when I get back.

Quick Update

I'm borrowing Bradd's computer for a moment to give everyone a quick update.  

We moved out of the house, and into the place next door to Bradd.  It's still quite a mess over there.  Loney and I are slowly working on getting things in place.  Hopefully by this weekend we'll have most things in the house and have a place so we can sleep on our own bed.  Sleeping on a twin with Melody has made for some rough nights.  

I'll probably take pictures of the new place as soon as I find the camera and things are cleaned up a bit.  Still sooo much to do.

Well, long story short, we are moving from our house.  Kinda not a fun thing since we have to be out this weekend, but it will work out.  Won't be posting much until internet get's worked out.  Not that very many people read my measly little blog.   

Busy, busy, busy few weeks.........

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's day to all you mom's out there.  I've been up since 7:30 with Jordan, while Loney sleeps soundly in the bed.  Something's wrong with this picture.  Oh well, can't let it ruin my day.

Since I was up so early, I did another layout for the Faith Sister's CT.  I'm trying to scrap the pictures from a few years back since I have a lot to catch up with.  This one is from Thanksgiving 2005.  Jordan is taking a break after jumping in the bounce house all day at Grandma & Grandpa's house.  He's such a little cutie.

Another layout for the Faith Sisters Digital CT.  I'm loving this kit from Scraps2You.  It's so bright and cheery.  So fun to work with.  The pictures are of Melody while playing in Grandma & Grandpa's backyard.  She's such a cutie!

Water Baby

I love this picture of Jordan with his cousin Jessica walking around the steps of the pool at the McMeekin Reunion in 2005.  He had so much fun, and wanted to get in soo bad, but I didn't want to at the time.

We are being overrun by little gnats.  They are a pain in the butt.  I'm sure I've swallowed a ton of them while sleeping.  I've had a couple fly into my eye, and they need to go away.  I guess it could be worse.  They could be all over the house is droves instead of just my bedroom.  

I am so tired of being tired.  I'm stressed, sick, and worn down.  I'm looking forward to school getting out, so that's one less thing to worry about.  Jordan came home today with diarrea.  Poor kid's bum in burning.  As of right now, it might be slowing down a little bit.  We'll see once he's had some more to eat if it comes right back.  

My internet isn't working the greatest.  At least I'm having issues getting on some of the sites I usually go to.  Oh well.  Just getting some laundry done before having tacos tonight and then prepare to watch Lost.  I'm sad it's on so late, but what can I do?

I'm Batman!

So there was a tutorial over at Faith Sisters for doing an "Out of Bounds" technique.  I've been wanting to do it, because it looks soo cool, so here's what I came up with.

I used "Swing on a Star" Digital Kit by Pineapple Plantation & Ziggle Designs over at Scrap Orchard

Birthday 07 Layout

Here's a layout using pictures from Loney's 33rd birthday.  I love the colors in this digi kit.  It's awesome!!

Digital Stuff used:
Fruit of the Spirit: Self Control by Gretchen Tripp (Faith Sisters & Elemental Scraps)
Cardborad by Gretchen Tripp (Elemental Scraps)
"Happy" from Chrome Memories 3 by Gretchen Tripp (Faith Sisters & Elemental Scraps)
Photo Template by Gretchen Tripp (Faith Sisters & Elemental Scraps)
"Birthday" overlay by Gretchen Tripp (Elemental Scraps)

I'm super tired tonight, but Jordan decided he needed to get up at 1:00am.  So here I sit, waiting patiently for him to go to sleep.  It's gonna be a rough night.

Well, Saturday is National Scrapbooking Day, and there are tons of things going on.  In the digi world every website is having some sort of weekend festivities to celebrate.  Unfortunately I'll be away from my computer for most of the weekend, so I won't have the opportunity to partake in some of the challenges, etc.

But, as soon as I get home, I'm hoping it's not too late to join in with a few of the challenges happening.  Faith Sister's is having a big 'ol weekend planned, so I hope to check them out here while I'm at mom's to see what I can and cannot participate with.  They'll make the big announcement on Friday on their blog.

I'm really not complaining, just a little bummed since this is my first NSD that I really have been scrapping for.  It had been almost 3 years since doing a page before I got into digi scrapping.  Now I have over 50 pages done in the last 6 months.  Not too shabby.  There's definately no turning back to paper scrapping for me now.  Guess it's time to go through all my stuff and either donate to family or try to sell some.  I'll keep some for card making, but it's definately time to simplify.
