Ashley's Big 21!

I love this layout. Ashley and I always have so much fun when we get together for our birthdays! We ALWAYS celebrate with dinner at Rosies. Cheese Dip, Mango Margaritas, Chicken Enchiladas & Birthday Sopapillas! :) doesn't get much better than that. For this layout I found ribbon confetti paper at hobby lobby. I then bought plain yellow & purple paper to match for bordering the pictures and for cutting out the letters. I matched the stickers to the background paper and to ashley's shirt! I was lucky that I found everything to match! The layout design was pretty simple, but i think it turned out great. I used the Cricut to cut out the title and just added stickers in stead of journaling. I knew if I blogged about it I would remember what we did! :) How can you forget tradition?!

Take me Out to the Ballgame

I actually got this neat layout in Nashville at the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook convention 2 years ago. I bought it for other reasons but it turned out to be GREAT for Garrett's ball pictures! He did so awsome this year in ball. The pictures just fit underneath the cutouts. It took me about 5 minutes to put this together. Can we say EASY? :)

I thought it turned out great. I love it!

Christmas Time......was here!

It's hard to believe that this was 2 Christmas' ago now. Where has the time gone. This is probably one of my most favorite layouts. I purchased this from Lott's to Scrap About one of my ABSOLUTE favorite 12x12 page kit places. The kits come with all the materials and you put them together to fit your pictures. They're very reasonably priced as well! its the best for scrapbookers without a lot of time! This was our first Christmas together and was one of the most special ones. They always say if you survive the holidays, you'll be able to survive anything. Well look at us now...we're getting married!

So the past 2 weeks have been filled
With me being sick and unable to shake it. I'm sitting in here at the urgent medicare clinic trying to get some medicine to start making me feel better. I'm so tired of feeling bad. In addition to being sick I have so much I have to do for the wedding. As I sit here I realize I need to fix and print 150 programs, make 2 slideshows and start pulling out summerish clothes and washing & packing for A cruise. I've confirmed several big things for the wedding which makes things better some stress off my shoulders! Chris & I are anxiously awaiting our wedding in 33 days. It's hard to believe everything is so close. I've always dreamed of this day and it's almost here. All the festivities are about to take off and I couldn't be more ready! Teaching has been very rewarding lately. In the midst of my sickness my kids at work sure do make things brighter. I look forward to all of the activities that are coming with the end of the year! :)
God has really been at work in our life recently. Chris was blessed with a job opportunity at our wonderful church Willowbrook which he just recently heard word he got! It is such a blessing for this job change and will also be a blessing to our new marriage. I am beyond excited for Chris as he begins this journey he's prayed for for several years now.
I'm hoping to get back to crafting and scrapbooking soon! I have ordered several simple put together kits from my favorite website in the past few months and I'm ready to catch up on my crafts!!! :)
