My life right now

My life right now is about looking for a washer, dryer, and a Fridge! Lists, list of things I need to look into and Also waiting!!! What I am I waiting for you might ask? Let me tell you!!! We bought a house! OK not just yet but we are in escrow and  underwriting is happening and now we just have to wait! My goodness when did the prices of appliances shoot up? WOW I was shocked when we went looking. Crazy!!!  Unbelievable!!!
I have been shopping around, price matching , looking for the best deal and also reviews I have to check those out too! I don't want a piece of crap especially if I have to spend in the thousands!!!
Any of you have any brands you LOVE? Please tell I would like to hear your opinions.
To give myself a break from the appliance shopping and to take away some stress from the waiting game I went to my local Daiso store and found these adorable memo stickies. They are just SO SO SO CUTE!!! Even the boys and Hubby thought they were cool! So you know they gotta be something special!

As always Thanks for looking and listening

Bows Challenge


Here is my  layout for challenge #4
 I had to use bows
My son is so goofy he makes so may funky faces when I am trying to get a picture of him. I have learned that I have to catch him off guard or this is what I will get!!! On the positive side he makes me laugh when I go back and look at the pictures.




Thank you all for looking. Next challenge is to use Banners.

My Happy Place

Good Morning,

So happy to be here and post some scrapbook pages. I got 2 done last night!!! This week well actually just Tuesday and yesterday we actually had some down time. I scrapped, Hubby took a nap, and the boys were on the computer or just watching t.v. No soccer practice and no explorers meeting! But you know it all has to come to an end!!! Today and tomorrow night we have dinners we have to attend. Which isn't all that bad because than I don't have make dinner. ;) and the house is clean laundry is washed at least for the mean while. Does your laundry pile up? I do 2 loads of laundry a day and still full dirty baskets when I get up the next day. What the heck??? oh well I know I should be grateful I have kids laundry to do cuz all too soon the kids grow up and move on. OK well let's get back to the scrapbook pages ( opps sorryI got side tracked).

This layout is for challenge #3 I had to use sparkles

My kids and Hubby are Definitely MY HAPPY PLACE



Hopefully you can see on the sun I used gold stickles and also stickles on "your my happy place".
I pushed myself to add more layers and I loved how it came out. But I kept asking myself  "is that too many layers?" I like it and I have plenty of scraps to use up!
Loved and You are my happy place was cut out using my silhouette (Love that machine).

OK Thanks for looking now off to the next blog post for Challenge #4 Bows

Selfies

Another layout WOOHOO!!! It feels good to get some scrapbook pages done. Thanks to these challenges from this blog http://scrapourstash.blogspot.com/
I have been on the Project life kick since last year in July so I am on catch up mode.
It bothers me some days that I need to catch up but others day I say "OH WELL!!!" I just keep documenting. The only thing that does bother me all the time I have to say is that I am not catching the true feeling or emotion when I am doing my Project Life.
For instance when I was working on week 13 of last yr. It was my sons Birthday and we found out when he was leaving for Basic/Air Force! I remembering being so Happy, Proud, and Sad that day! I was SO happy for him because  he was doing something he wanted!!! I was SO SAD because I knew this would more likely be the last time that I would wake up put up that Happy Birthday sign up, buy a cake, and balloons for him :(
And I of course I was Proud of him because he wants to serve and protect his country! He is willing to put his life in harms way for the US! oh and also he is following our families tradition by being in the MILITARY!
I can remember this but what about the little every day things! I want to remember those too that's why I started project life. So I tell myself  "let's get to knocking out those PL pages!" NOW if only there was more crafting time available!!!!

But for now lets show you all this completed layout of me and my wonderful HUBBY!!!
My challenge for this layout is to use doilies. If you want to join in check out the blog
