Getting Back into the Swing of Things!

Now that Tadd is back to work and the kids start school in a week, I am officially starting to get back into our normal routine!  I just realized that I have some layouts and cards that haven't been posted so I wanted to get a few up here!  And look for the fun Scrapdango Contest at the bottom of this post!  I'm so excited!

The first one I did just for fun and the rest use the August Scrapdango Kit.

Hope you can join us for School's In!  Last year I participated and it was a blast!  You can sign in here!

Home for the Summer!

After being gone for about 25 days over the course of 2 months...we are finally home for good!  Not that we didn't have a ton of fun in the Redwoods, at the beach, camping, in Sunriver, and at Camp Sherman, but it feels good to be home!
I was able to get out and do some scrapping with some friends last night and it just may have been my most productive scrap day ever!  I got 4 layouts completed and loved all of them!  Here are two...the other two have to wait a little bit! :)

This one is for the sketch challenge over at My Mind's Eye.  I love when I get a chance to do these!  The hardest thing each month, is picking which MME papers to use! :)  This time I literally had 3 different lines of paper in front of me before deciding on this one!  This is Katie and Erin at Camp Sherman last week after Lexa braided their hair!  I've been wanting to do a layout of Katie and Erin since Erin talks about how much she loves Katie all the time!  These were the perfect pictures!  And I tried a new way to make flowers and know I will be making lots more!  These are made from little doilies that I glimmer misted!  They are adorable!

This is for the sketch challenge at CocoaDaisy this month.  Loved this sketch and since it was Ronda's sketch, I knew I wanted to use GlimmerMist as she is the one who first got me hooked! :)  These pictures are from our recent camping trip to Ft. Stevens.

A new layout and a sneak peek!

With the hubby being home during the summer, being on vacation and all the nice weather we've been having, I haven't done a ton of scrapbooking this summer but managed to get this layout done for the American Crafts dt call!

And since Camp Sherman is quickly coming...I actually can't procrastinate with my Scrapdango kit this month!  I usually pull it out a million times, feeling all the paper and embellishments before I get to it!  Here are a few sneaks from the few things I've done so far!
