I've Been Busy!

Besides taking care of my two babies, I've been scrapping like crazy! I've been very inspired by contests and challenges I've seen on the forums and websites I visit. Here are some of the layouts I've done over the past two weeks.

This first one was for a Design Team call at Addicted Scrappers. Erik took these pictures, how cool did they get!!! They almost look like professional pictures, he did great! Let me start by saying that we woke up on the morning of December 16th to no electricity, a screaming child, and a mysterious phone call on my cell phone. It was 7:15 am, who calls that early? Well we had no electricity due to the ice storm. My sister was the mysterious caller. It turns out she was on her way (driving all the way from Texas to PA). She made a very difficult decision and wanted to come home to live with family. This was quite a surprise! I knew this would be no ordinary day.

Later that night, around 8:15 p.m., I was just grabbing my evening snack, and getting ready to watch some football. Well, my water broke, so that didn't happen! We headed into the hospital on ice slicked roads and had our beautiful baby. Quite an eventful day!!!

This next layout was done for The Scrap Room. It was a sketch contest from their newsletter. I really like how it turned out. These pictures were taken at Sears in May 2007 when Devon was 18 months old.

This was also for a contest, but for the Coordinates Collections website. We had to incorporate something old and something new. My something old was the torn paper. My something new was putting one large 5 x 7 with it. The picture was taken this Thanksgiving at our annual wreath making festivities.

Willowtraders is giving away 5 free passes for a class that I really want to take! We were to create layouts based on a sketch by the teacher (Susan Costanza). Mine was a 2 pager with pictures from this Christmas Eve with my side of the family.

So besides picking up toys, washing bottles, burping babies, and playing with play doh, I am still making time for myself! I think it helps to keep me sane!
