Happy Sunday Morning!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you have a great day planned and enjoy what ever your Sunday brings your way! I have a full day ahead of me... ironing, shower, deliver Jenna Jane back to her Daddy, and then off to a class a reunion planning meeting later this afternoon. Thus, I'm up early and getting a jump on my day.
The first thing that comes to mind these days for our family, including me, is our up coming trip the Riu Jalisco in PV, Mexico. Only 23 more days until our departure!! Woooo! Whooo! I've done some shoppin' and I'm set, now I just gotta be sure my girl is set. She has grown so much since last Spring, that she is going to need so much! Thank goodness we only have one child to clothe! LOL! Anyhow, sharing a few more pics of our destination. :)

Last night my Emma and Jenna spent the evening with Grandma, so it allowed me some down-time later on in the evening. Thus, I did some playing. I came across some fun software call Shape Collage and just started playing. Here are a few of my creations! Fun hey?!!! Oh, and the software is free, so go on over and check it out! And enjoy!
Otherwise, not much going on in my digi world... All though, I do wanna share some info on a new collab release by Amanda Carlson Designs and Spinky Dink Scraps. It's a yummy kit and and full of sweet treats and lots of color! You can find it over at Elemental Scraps tomorrow!
I did some playing with it last night and created this. I wanted to create a LO reflecting how it can be used to scrap those pics other then for sweet treats. Cool hey?!
Okay, I off for now and on to the rest of my Sunday! Have a great day! :)

Good Sunday to you all! Hope your weekend and Valentines has been a wonderful one! My weekend was a busy one... cleaning, laundry, shopping, and spending some time with my Mom and helping her... I didn't get much scrappin' in... :( But, a very rewarding weekend indeed!
Here are a few pics from Valentines in our household... Tony opening his card/gift from Emma and I. He loved the card; it was a musical card(country music) that Emma picked out. He got a kick out of the fact that Emma wrote that right in the card.

And here is one of the goodies Emma found in her Valentines gift bag from Tony and I. She immediately had to bust out the Wii and play. That's my girl! :)
!(And sweet, cuz it's one of those kinds of gift that we can all enjoy! LOL!)

And this here is our little Missy Mae Oooops with a Emma's Valentine balloon tied to her collar. She was having fun trying to get it, as it followed her all around the house. Way cute!

Alrighty, I can finally show you the new kit hitting the shoppes today; "Urban Chic" by Creations by Rachael! I just checked, and it's not in the shoppe yet, but Rachael says today!!! So keep your eyes on the Plucky Pear Shoppe!!! This kit is amazing and must have! It's got plenty of attitude to go with those pics of yours!

And here are my two scraps, with this awesome kit! I had so much fun scrappin' with kit. I know you will too~

Oh, and while I'm on the topic of Creations by Rachael, I wanted to mention the sale going on over at her Gotta Pixel Shoppe. All of her designs are 30% off through the 15th. What a great sale!!! A great time pick up all those designs of hers for a heck of a price!

And the Gotta Pixel "Gotta Get It" designs have hit the shoppe too! Wooo! Whooo! And check out Rachael's goodie, which you can scoop-up for $1.00!!!! It's "Love My Boys," and it's got a touch of boys and love in it! It's an awesome mini, that can be used in some many ways!
And here is a scrap of mine... I had to scrap pics of my boys, my Peanut and Ace.

And here are a couple of new design templates by Late Night Scraps! You can find them in her shoppe over at Plucky Pear Designs. I'm lovin' these big time! And currently working on a LO using both. I'm so hoping to get back to that LO later tonight. (Wish me luck!)

Oh, I must show you the latest my Amanda Carlson from over at Elemental Scraps!!! This is "Tuff Stuff," it's a revamp of one of her very first kits. It's perfect for masculine pages of all ages. But, I'm thinkin' it will be perfect for some pics of my boys, Ace and Peanut! (That's the next LO I'll be working on.)

*All LOs are linked to my gallery for full credit!

Well, that's it for today. I must scoot and get back at that LO of mine! Tah! Tah!

Fun and crazy weekend!

So, how was your weekend? I hope you had a great weekend. I did, but gosh it went by way to fast! It was a busy weekend and packed full of fun! Friday night Emma had her best buds all over for a sleep-over(yes, I must be loony! LOL!) But, they were good and they had loads of fun (and lost lots of sleep, as did I!). :) Check out Emma's bedroom after the sleep-over... clothes and stuffed animals were every where. As long as they had fun right?... :)

I did some scrappin' over the weekend too... (I've always gotta squeeze that in, it's my therapy)! I final dug into the "One Love" collab which was put together by many designers in the community for Haiti relief. The kit is packed full and it's huge. I think I could scrap for an entire year on this one and not get bored! :) It's still available for purchase in many stores, including Scrap Orchard where I picked up mine.

And here is my creation. This is me in Mexico and I am now longing to be there(and counting the day until our departure on March 17th). :)

Oh, and I scrapped some pics from last weekends Rock Climbing adventure with the Girl Scout Troop. I used Creation by Rachael's "Into The Woods" again. I'm having a blast playing with that kit; it's so versitile! And remember, it's retiring real soon, so snag it now at $2!!!
And while I'm on the topic of Creations by Rachael, check out this sneak peek! Cool hey? Be watching the shoppe over at Plucky Pear Designs, because it will be hitting the store shelves real soon! :)
(*All images a clickable to the shoppes or gallery for full credit.)

Well, I guess that's it for now... I think I'll go snuggle up with my Emma and fur balls and watch some tv.
Tah! Tah! Until next time! :)

Happy Friday folks! Hope all is well with you! Things are good for me; just glad it's Friday! I got up late this morning, so I didn't get to work out, but did make it to work on time. Not a good start to my day; I hate it when I don't get my work out in! But, the rest of my day has been going well, and I'll get that work out in after work tonight.
My Emma is having a couple of her friends over tonight for a sleep-over, and she's all excited about that. She says, they will probably just play the Wii all night. (Sounds about right too! LOL!)
Seeing my header, reminds me I need to give by blog a make-over. I am so ready for Spring and my header just isn't reflecting that. LOL! Maybe this weekend, I'll do that...
Hey, look at the new CU goodies by Late Night Scraps!!! I am so in love with this first set of cloulds; I luv the demenstional look they have! You can find these for yourself over at Plucky Pear Designs or Scrapbook Bytes in her stores there. I can't wait to see what you designers do with these! :)

Oh, and just a reminder that Creations by Rachael is retiring a number of her kits. You can pick them up for only $2 each! An awesome deal for some awesome kits! You can find them in her store over at Plucky Pear Designs, under "Limited Time." Head over there soon, because you only have until February 15th!

I snagged this one, "Into The Woods," which is retiring, and I'm having so much fun scrappin' with it! And still have quiet a few LOs I plan to scrap with it. It's perfect for those outdoorsy adventures and more! And remember, it's only $2!!!!
And here are two of my latest LOs using "Into The Woods."

This kit is one of my all time favorites by Creations by Rachael. It's not one of the retiring kits, but it's still a great deal at $5.00! This kit is guaranteed to capture every memory you have of that fabulous tropical vacation, tiki party, or just another fabulous day at the beach. This kit is what dreams are made of(including mine)!
Here are a couple of my recent LOs using "Tropical Paradise."

Oh, and with my new CT spot, I played with Amanda Carlson's "Winter Romance." Isn't it so soothing and calming?! You can find this one in her new shoppe over at Elemental Scraps. A must have at only $4!

And finally, this a LO I completed for the 2/1 Template Challenge over at Elemental Scraps. What a fun template and great challenge! I used Genia Beana's new February Color Play designs, so rawkin' fun; Go check them out!
Well, I best scoot! Thanks for visiting my blog! Catch ya soon!
