More scrappiness

which is a good thing cause it gets me in my room and using stuff, so then I can buy more stuff, vicious cycle I know- :)

Here is what has been happenin' in the Carson craft room...

I have entered another DT contest for Timeless Daydreams, a great scrappy site for those interested.  The challenges have been based on March Madness (which my bracket was HORRIBLE this year), I made it thru the first round and this is my second round layout.  We had to use TIME in our title, have a compass in the layout and use the journaling prompt "If I could turn back time" and yes look at all the journaling-LOL

Here is another layout from my Two Chicks April Kit-this an awesome Kit Club, I always have plenty of leftovers after doing at least 3 pages and several cards.

And last but definitely not least, my favorite LSS, The Scrapbook Princess has started doing monthly challenges and this month (Women's History Month) was to scrapbook about a woman you admired, so I did my Granny.  She has gone on to live in heaven and I really miss her, she was the most courageous, sweet, giving, loving person I know and I would give anything if I could have one more day with her.  This layout was done with the new Bella Blvd Estate Sale line and it is awfully cute paper.

That is it for now... things are pretty hectic around here, softball is in full swing, my hours have changed at work and we are headed to Montgomery for Easter and my mom's birthday this weekend.  It is about time for a me-cation, I need some time for myself!!!

Sure doesn't feel like spring

Feels more like January, it is cold and dreary, but that does mean I have been busy in the scrap room.  Lots going on in the scrappy world for me that is keeping me busy....

1st is Two Chicks Chik n' Coop, I have just finished 2 layouts with the April kit and still have lots in mind.  If you are looking for kit club this it is!!.. You so much for the money, there is enough product to do at least 8-10 layout, plus cards with the scraps and you can add on extras if you like.  Be sure to check it out, and while you are there you might see some of the projects I have made, like this one  :)  

2nd I have entered another DT contest for Timeless Daydreams.  I made it to the 1st round and will know if I made it to the 2nd round on Wednesday.  We had to choose between 2 different challenges based on March Madness, I choose the "Bracket Science" challenge; we had to use brackets in a new way (not around a word), have 16 circles (represented 16 teams) and use the word "SWEET".  Here is the layout I did for it, of my cute baby cousin Laura Preston (all compliments of Two Chicks)

And lastly I have entered 5 layouts for submission to Memory Makers for the possibility of being published!!  How awesome would that be???  Can't post pics of those until the notify us at the end of the month.  So keep me on your prayer list that good things will come.  Well that is it for now... heading back to the scrap room to work on another challenge layout for The Scrapbook Princess and finish up my Two Chicks April kit requirements. 

On to real world stuff.... they have changed my schedule again at work, I am not real happy about it, but trying to deal with it and found out some bad news with one of my dear friends that I am also trying to deal with.  Just another little request for some prayers to go up...  Thanks :)

Scrappy Weekend

So, I spent last weekend at the "Sweet Retreat" with a whole bunch of great girls!!  How much fun can be had with a bunch of woman on sugar and caffeine highs??  TONS, nothing better than relieving the stress of everyday life with a bunch of laughter and good times!!!!  For those of you going, HUH???  I was at a scrapbooking retreat last week with a whole bunch of friends and we eat too much candy, drink way too much caffeine and paper and glue stuff together :)

Here are some pics from the weekend, and yes I even did a few layouts along the way...

scrumptious cupcakes.... these were AWESOME!!!

I know that doesn't seem like many layouts for a WHOLE weekend, but I did help teach a class and took a class, that is my excuse anyway-LOL
