New Layouts and Digital Goodies!!!

Well, hi there!!! How is your Sunday going? I so hope it's been a good one for you! Mine hasn't been all that bad I guess... considering I'm on my third day of having a headache... And today was the worst of all three... But, my Mom always told me, "The third one, and your out!" So, I'm figuring tomorrow I should be headache free...
With or without a headache all weekend, I did still get alot accomplished around the house. I had a list of things to get done and I got it all done and more. Ahhhhh... the feeling of accomplishment...
Now that it's Sunday night, I guess it's back to work for me tomorrow. Other then that, I really don't have much on the agenda for the week. It's suppose to be nice out, so maybe Emma and I will go for a bike ride and a walk. (And yep, I always take my camera with!) Tuesday night my girl has dance lessons and Wednesday night we will be off to visit Grandma, like we do every Wednesday night. That's what my week looks like... the norm. Oh, and the hubby is headin' out of town for work. As long as this headache is gone, the week should be a good one.
Well for digi stuff, I have a couple of LOs to share using some goodies from Creations by Rachael. She is such a sweet boss-lady! She gifts our CT with some exclusive goodies, for just us to play with. And of course, the goodies always rawk! See.... Well, and of course booth LOs are of my Emma!!! (Obviously, Emma is my biggest inspiration for scrappin'! How can one not wanna scrap that face!)
This first one is a prime example of me goofin' around in PSE... Extraction and title play... a bit out of the ordinary for me. And so fun! (Oh, and this LO is for the April All Stacked up challenge for over at Gotta Pixel.)
(*All images are linked to my galleries for full credit or to the stores.)

And this here is Creations By Rachel's latest kit; Isn't it gorgeous?!!! Pick up yours now, by clicking on the image and off to the shoppe you'll go!

And here are my CT LOs with this kit. Both LOs include pics taken while we were on vacation in Puerto Vallarta a fews weeks ago. (Oh, do I miss the beauty of PV!...) My Emma took this pic below, of Tony and I; She's such a great little photographer already, at the age of 11! :)
And this one here is pics of the girls in the group swimming with dolphins. What an amazing experience for them. And me, I had a great time taking pics of them.
I guess, that's it for the night... Gonna watch some tv and bomb around the web until bed-time.
Tah! Tah! And thanx for visiting my blog!
And hey, don't be shy. Let me know you visited and leave me a comment. I luv visitors! :)

Good evening everyone! I hope your week is going well! Mine is going pretty good... Getting things accomplished at work and at home. And of course I'm squeezing in some scrappin time! :) I guess we are getting back into the groove here, after our vacation... Work, school and dance for Emma, and family time...

I finally scrapped some pics from Emma's basketball season and I just loved how it turned out. I used Sports Mania: Basketball by Heather Roselli of The Sweet Shoppe. I do beleive I'll be scrappin' with this kit again; I luv it! :)

I also did some scrappin' of last year's Easter pics. Yep! I was excited for Easter this year, soooo.... Anyhow I used "Easter Day" by Creations by Rachael of Plucky Pear Designs! Isn't it just the cutest kit ever! I plan to use this on some of this year's pics too.

And here is my creation, with last years pics. My Emma and neice Jenna, hunting for goodies. Easter is always special around our house because ever since my sister Marcie's passing, Jenna spends the Easter holiday with us. We look forward to it every year!

Oh, and I must show a sneak peak of what's coming to Plucky Pear this Friday, April 9th! It's called "Happiness" and the color palette is awesome?!!! A must have for sure! It's plump full of gorgeous elements and perfectly textured and patterned papars. So be watching for it!

Oh, and our Rachael is a guest designer over at Digital Scrap Cafe. So you should head on over and check out what you can get using the below offer! You won't be disappointed, trust me! :)

Happy Spring!!!

Hey there... It's been a while... Well, we are back from our annual vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and as usual, it was gorgeous there! It was sunny every day and the temps were in the 80's. Perfect weather! It was an amazing trip and the week went by way to fast! I miss the beauty of it already... But, one good thing is, we came back to Spring in Wisconsin, instead of snow, which has also been beautiful. The grass is greening up and tulips have blossomed, and oh I even spotted a couple of Robins! But, I must share a few of my favorite pics from our vacation.
This here is the sunrise we experienced every morning. Along with a walk on the beach, it was the perfect way to start our day.
And then the sunset...
This here is a night shot of the walk-way and fountain in the center of the resort. We had a view of it from our room; it is gorgeous during the day and at night.
And this is the whole clan... The Webers and the Larabees.
A few of us enjoying the swim-up pool. :)
Me and my man! I luv this pic of Tony and I, and can you believe it, it was taken by Emma our 10 year old daughter. I think she is a great little photographer already!(Although, I guess she has a good teacher. LOL!)

And here is my little bambino.
So, now onto some scrap talk, cuz that's my gig!
(All images are linked to the stores and galleries for full credit.)
Here is a LO I created before I left on vacation, but just didn't have time to post it. I used some of the March Color Play Designs from over at Elemental Scraps.
Now, onto new CT stuff...
And speaking of Elemental Scraps, look at this precious kit by Amanda Carlson. It's in the shop now for only $2.25!!!
And here is my creation with it; soft and clean.
"Pink Elegance" by Creations by Rachael. An amazingly elegant kit and found at Gotta Pixel.
And my scraps...

The stage has been set with this kit and critics having been giving it "Two Thumbs Up!" Creations by Rachael and Late Night Scraps teamed up on this one, isn't it awesome!!!
Here are a couple of my creations...

Oh, and look at the latest by Late Night Scraps, it's "Oh so Lucky!" An outstanding Irish creation to scrap your St. Patrick's Day picks and more!
You also get a set of 6 quick pages free with purchase! :)
And this what scrap with it... a beach LO... See told you, you could scrap more with it!
And another...
Late Night Scraps also came out with some of awesome CU doodles, for those designers! I can't wait to see these in action!
Speaking of Late Night Scraps, she currently has a CT call going on. So, if you are looking to join a fun and friendly team and have the pleasure to scrap with amazing designs, then get your app in!
Well, I must scoot for now... got lots to do. Some cleaning and then off to celebrate my Emma's 11th Birthday at the local roller rink with her and her friends.
Have a great day and Easter!
