Digi Fun!

It's Friday! Woot! I decided to start my weekend early and took a personal day off from work. I'm sittin' pretty good with my work-load and the boss is out-of-town, so I thought it might be a good day to take off. We all need a little breather from the craziness to keep sane, so... here I am at puter, relaxing and enjoying a cup or two of coffee. 

I have a number of things to tell you about, so I'll just jump right in.

Changes may be on the way & new digi designs!

Good Sunday morning to you; I hope your day is off to a beautiful start! I'm enjoying the quiet in the house with coffee and puter time... Ahhhh.... The hubby ran into work for a bit and my girl is still sound a sleep. I too slept in this morning, til 7:00 a.m. and it was wonderful! Now I'm here at my puter, with the sound of birds singing outdoors... It's very relaxing... :)

It was a busy week for me, which is nothing new, I know... LOL! Between work, Emma finishing up her 5th Grade school year and touring living options for my Mom, I was kept on my feet.

We've been lookin' into living options for my Mom, because her home has just become too much for her to take care of and us kids worry about her safety, with her there by herself. In addition, her income will be changing drastically in a couple of years and she just won't be able to afford to stay living there.  It's been hard for her, thinking of having to let go of what Dad and her worked so many years for...  We did tour some beautiful options for her though, which gave even more to think about.

Now for the change... Ever since the realization that Mom just won't be able to stay there by herself for too much longer, many options have run through our heads.  Wanting to do what makes Mom happy has been our goal all along. But, her moving in with my oldest brother or my sister & her hubby moving in with her, just wasn't what she wanted.  She feels it would disrupt their family life... From the beginning, I've so wanted her to move in with us, but we live in a tri-level and she just wouldn't be able to do the stairs.  I of course thought of how nice it would be to move in with her, but I would have never have suggested to my hubby... I know how much he loves our home(and so do Emma and I) and it's location her on the golf course.  Not to mention, all the work he has put into our home to make it beautiful. The pool, the huge deck that surrounds the pool, and the enclosure of our porch. But, Tony left me speechless Friday night, by suggesting we sell our home and buy my Mom's so she can stay living there. I honestly was speechless. But, now I'm gleeming with happiness... I know we will miss our home here, but we would make a new home there with my Mom.... So much to think about....

Anyhow, in my scrappin' world, here is what's been going on...

An amazing new kit by Creations by Rachael; This is Rachael's contribution to the Gotta Grab it over at Gotta Pixel.  You can find it there now at amazng price!

Life is busy and sweet! :)

Well... well... look who's back! Yep! Me... Lor! I have been missing in action a bit, haven't I? I've been wayyyy busy with life, and fun stuff too! Woot!

Last Saturday, Emma and I planned a mother-daughter day. Our original plan was to hit State Street in Madison, which we did. But... Emma wasn't real thrilled with it; she hated the crouds of people.  And because I didn't like my girl being uncomfortable, I offered to take her to the Henry Vilas Zoo.  And we were both very glad we did, because we had a blast.  Here are a number of my favs shots from our day.

And in addition to that we've been spending alot of time here...

in our pool!

And our back yard! 

Just enjoying the nice Summer weather. The entire family is loving it!

And yes, scrappin' stuff to tell you about, and lots of it! Do you think you were gonna get by with out it? Hah! Fat chance!! Remember, digi scrappin' rawks my world. It's my "Me Time", I've been doing alot of that too! (Heee! Heee!)

This here is a new Plucky Pear Collab, which you will find exclusively at Scrapbook Bytes for the month of June.  This kit was made to match the color challenge that you will be able to find soon at SBB(you get a sampler of the kit with the challenge). Oh and if you your are a Quick Page lover, they should be up in the shoppe today too!

(*Remember all my dig goodies and LOs are linked to the designer's store or my gallery for full credit.)

And here are my two Creative Teams Los.

I also did some scrappin' with some of Amanda Carlson Designs' goodies.  Neither kit is new to her store shelf, but certainly ones you will want to add to your digi stash if you haven't already.
I've shared my LOs below each kit.

Beach Bonanza

Oh and I picked up this fun little ditty this week, "Tropical Paradise," and did some scrappin' of pool pics with it. I figured it would be a good match for our pool pics and our vacation pics.
I'm lovin' it  and will be using it time and time again!

I created this LO below, called "Fun Times."  This is pics of my daughter and her best buds
have a blast in the pool last week. Oh, and I hooked up a gig with Armina Designs to scrap a couple of her fantastic templates for an upcoming challenges at SBB. So be watching for them.
(This template challenge will start today.)

Oh, and after our Girl Scout Troop earned their Horse Badge in May, I had loads of pics to scrap from their adventure at Hickory Ridge, so I picked up this adorable collab.  This is "Lil Cowpoke" by Gina and Karah from over at the Lily Pad. Fun hey?!!!

Here is my first scrap with it, one I'm very proud of too!(Gleaming, I am! Heee! Heee!) I just love the pics and especially how I blended by top pic with a mask on top. So pretty... Sometimes I totally amaze myself! LOL!

And lastly, this is a LO I created for a challenge.  Which one? I don't know, I'm clueless. After all of these LOs I'm going in circles! LOL!

Well, that about sums it up for now... I must scoot! Catch ya later and thanx for visiting my blog!
