For the Luv of Art May Digi Challenge

I love sketches, don't you? Well, if you do Check out For the Luv of Art May Digi Challenge!

Here is my take on the challenge!

I could not wait to use these photos and the "Hope For A Brighter Future" Digital Collab Kit #1 was perfect for this!!

And there is more to come! I am getting an early Mother's Day gift tonight! The kids and James are letting me lock myself in my scrapbook room to...gasp...scrap! With no interruptions!

I am planning on working on my first hybrid album. I will let you know how it goes! :)

For The Luv of Art

I am so very excited to be a part of For of the Luv of Art's Digital Design Team.

I have been busy creating. Working on my Mount Vernon and DC album.

Also, been playing with new digital software from Panstoria. If you are looking to start doing digital scrapbooking or would like to just get your feet wet, then Panstoria is what you are looking for. Not only is it easy and inexpensive, but they have a 30 day FREE TRIAL on their software. You cannot beat that!! Check it out. Trust me. You will not be disappointed.

Now, back to Mount Vernon and DC. Here is a taste. In the past 2 weeks, I have cranked out over 40 digital pages. I am almost done. It is so nice to be able to get a few albums completed, when your life can get so crazy at times.

Here are some of my favorite layouts.

This Layout I used Olivia's Friend by Little Feet Digital Designs. This beautiful kit is available at For the Luv of Art.

This last layout was inspired by For The Luv of Art's March Digital Sketch Challenge. I used Laura Burger's Retrofunk Elements and Amy Teets' Digital Spring Fling Minikit.

I cannot tell you how excited I will be when I get the pages printed out for my album.

And to my traditional scrapbookers, do not worry, I am still a traditional girl at heart. Actually, my next project is to work on my Hershey album. I just need to clean up my scrapbook room and find some time to hide in my scrapbook sanctuary.

Will post those as I do them.

Yes! you read it right! A scrapbook flea market is coming to town! My sweet friend Lynn is hosting it this year. It is a fundraiser for the North Hagerstown High School Marching Band.

Did you know that the county does not give ANY money to the marching band? All the money they need throughout the year, is made through fundraisers. I was shocked to hear that!!

So! Lynn needs our help to raise money for their marching band! And you can get some great bargains while doing it! Now that is a WIN WIN SITUATION!!

Below is a flyer. Rent a table or just come and enjoy the amazing bargains, food and fun!!

Kids, Potty Training and Scrapbooking

Hello there! Remember me? It has once again been a long time since I blogged. Every time I blog, I tell myself I will do it more. But you know how well that happens. LOL

I have been busy. As you all probably know, raising three kids keeps you that way. Busy.

Jet started playing basketball. First year. And for Christmas, Grammy bought him a basketball hoop. Now we just need it to warm up a little so we can play (I love the cold, but not THAT much! )

Quinn started and has graduated the potty training. In THREE days. Not sure who is prouder. Me or him. LOL

Do not think I am a SUPER MOM. I had help. My friend bought a book Easy Potty Training by Lora Jensen. And it worked! Who knew!? I highly recommend it to any mom's who are dreading the potty training like I was.

Kaileyne is still dancing. She is in Tap, Jazz and Ballet. I have no idea how she does it. I am tired just from driving her around.

And me... my scrapbook room is finally finished! And I love love LOVE it!! Of course I have not had a lot of time to play in it yet. But it is done! I know. I know! You are all saying ... why aren't you scrapbooking?...are you nuts? ... do not deny it! I know you are saying it. LOL

Well, I am scrapbooking. I have been teaching classes. Lots of classes! I am actually teaching for the next 5 weekends. So, not a lot of time to create. Just cut kits. But I will be in that room a lot. Soon! Real Soon! And my hubby may have a had time getting me out.

I am also applying to be a Design Team Member for an online kit club. I have realized I miss being on a kit club design team. I think I scrapped more when I was on one. So, keep your fingers crossed. I will let you know how it goes. :)

Sooooo, wanna see my scrapbook room? Ok. Ok. You twisted my arm. ;)

Here we goooooooo.....
